Pelican Watch already has 11 reserved Summer 2017 weeks, with 7 from repeat renters. Enjoy the beautiful white sands of the lightly-developed east end of Holden Beach. Both houses have inverted floor plan has top floor with one master bedroom suite, kitchen with Corian and full features, and living area all overlooking large (28 foot wide) porch and beach/ocean. Three of the 4 bedrooms are oceanfront with great ocean views and breezes. Shining hardwood floors add extra quality. Dual zone heat/air conditioning allows different settings on each floor. Main TV is a new 47 inch HDTV w/digital cable. Wi-Fi. Enclosed outside shower with dressing area and hot/cold water. Outside entry 28 foot wide oceanfront porch via Andersen French doors to two of the oceanfront bedrooms. Off-season is great on the North Carolina Coast. Elevator serves top floor.

There are numerous spring festivals at area beaches and around Wilmington. Book-it now! Hold-On-Beach! is on the lightly developed 'East End' with broad beach for walking, swimming, or sunbathing. You won't need to get up early to 'stake-out' a beach or fishing spot in this area. Holden Beach is a top-ranked beach by USA Today, National Geographic Smart Travel Magazine, and has received National Healthy Beach status by NHBC which rates beaches based on environmental qualities and services.

Owner's Response: Thanks for noticing that we try to treat renters like we would hope to be treated when we travel. We strive to offer a quality home and beach experience at a reasonable rate. Our practice is to offer early check-in or late checkout at no extra charge if it works with our schedule and house cleaners schedules. I'm glad the weather was perfect (I can't claim any credit) during your family spring-break. My wife and I appreciate your care of our beach home and we welcome you back!

Hold-On-Beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Hold-On-Beach. This is our third time staying at the home and have had a wonderful time each visit. We enjoy it so much that we have booked another stay later this year. Irv provides a nice home and he is a pleasure to work with on the accommodations.

Perfect Family Holiday at this fabulous beach house!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Where to start??? Having gone to South Nags Head and loving it for many summers with my parents, my husband and our children, we decided to continue the tradition with our (now adult children) and our grandchildren. My son and daughter-in-law live in Charlotte and she is nine months pregnant and was limited as to how far she was allowed to go. My husband and I live in New York and my daughter and her family in Chicago, so we all agreed to go to one of the Brunswick Islands. I did a lot of research and decided on Holden Beach, as it had gotten several "awards" for Best Family Beach. Having 2 and 4 year old grandsons and one on the way, we were looking for chill and low key. Irv's house was just perfect. Beautifully and comfortably furnished with the beach a hop, skip and jump away. He provided everything we needed for the beach (new Tommy Bahama chairs, wave boards, etc). There was an outdoor shower and elevator to easily transport things from the outdoor ground level to the top floor. (Of course, all the boys wanted to do was ride the elevator). In the mornings we had coffee and breakfast on the deck and watched the sun rise. We ate great seafood and homemade ice cream galore. We went to a children's museum, nature walks and restaurants on other easily accessible nearby Islands. We loved Holden the best, as it was not crowded at all. No one was one top of you.

Irv could not have been more pleasant and helpful to work with. He was always available to promptly answer all of our questions before we signed the contract. He was also available and easy to reach after signing, as we had other questions as we got closer to our rental time.

Our entire family loved every aspect of our stay at Holden Beach in this beautiful house. I look forward to continuing this family tradition.

Owner's Response: Thanks. We work hard to give excellent, personal service. My wife and I own and personally operate our two Holden Beach homes. We get inside and stay, work, clean, use and pay attention at both homes as often as possible. You and family are welcome to come back to either of our homes. Irv

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation at Holden Beach was wonderful. We loved the view we could see from the house and the fact we just had to walk a short distance to setup on the beach.

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

Me and a few friends came down for a bachelor party/ golf weekend and this was the perfect place. We did not throw the typical bachelor party people expect our of guys. We just wanted a place to get away from our schedules and families for the weekend to golf and drink with a buddy of ours one last time before he gets married. All of the guys loved the house. Plenty of space, close enough to the beach, and comfortable beds. Mr. Woods was an outstanding host and we were privileged to get the "nickel tour" of the house from him. He was in constant communication with us about the weather and the availability of the house from start to finish. We will definitely be back.

Thank you Mr. Woods for everything you did to make this weekend successful. It was definitely one the groom will never forget.
