About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

SPECIAL August 25 to Sept 3. Will accept partial week. We had terrific bookings for Spring and Summer 2017. Repeat bookings for Summer 2017 have been strong, 7 of 10 peak weeks rented by repeat customers. Great availability for late summer/fall at both our Holden Beach homes. Spring and Fall are great and very affordable with available private pool heated at 82 degrees. If schedule works for you, this is a real deal. Holden Beach is great this time of year. Private heated (optional) pool stays open until November and re-opens in March.

2017 Summer reservations came in quickest ever for Pelican Watch and Hold-on-Beach (no pool). Year-round Oceanfront home with Private HEATED Pool open March through Thanksgiving. House is luxurious, nicely decorated private oceanfront home with elevator built in 2008, now with many multi-year repeat customers. Spring and Fall are great times to try out Pelican Watch at reduced prices. Enjoy the beach or curl up with book from our extensive library. Call owner for 'couples' and/or multi-week discounts. Solar blanket and southern exposure (now w/ heater optional /surcharge applies) will warm the private pool. Take a short walk over dunes to broad beach. Pelican Watch is named in honor of the brown pelicans who fly by on the updrafts from ocean winds off the dune-ridge along the beach.

House has 4 bedrooms, 3 facing oceanfront, 3.5 baths inside, & enclosed outside shower w/ hot/cold H2O. Glass-paneled back deck off small sitting area on main living area offers privacy/protection from ocean breezes and great views of Lockwood Folly Inlet.

About Irvin Woods

I grew up with a family beach house at Edisto Beach, SC. Love the Carolina coast. Holden Beach is not at all like Myrtle Beach. We built this house in 2008 and incorporated improvements on the design of our other very nice house, Hold-on-Beach, vrbo #114090. . We love the East-End of Holden Beach so much, we are now on our third house in the neighborhood. We designed and built Pelican Watch for long-term enjoyment and eventual retirement. Heated pool really extends pleasure to almost 9 months.

Irvin Woods purchased this house in 2008

Why Irvin Woods chose Coastal North Carolina

Special design and open space, visually from glassed back deck to stunning ocean views from both living levels. Elevator serves top floor (main living level) from parking level. Inverted floor-plan. Private heated (optional) pool is open from March to Thanksgiving.

What makes this house unique

Pelican Watch is in very lightly developed area of east end of Holden Beach.

Great property, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family had a great time at Pelican Watch...again!! The location could not be better. Really short walk to beach and and at this spot you practically have the beach to yourself!

Kids love the pool and the accommodations were just right for our family.

Owner's Response: The family posting review of Pelican Watch are great multi year repeat renters. They always leave my house in good shape and usually make minor adjustments and are good at giving useful suggestions about our beach home. This family is always welcome back. They are among seven repeat renters at Pelican Watch this summer. Thanks again for your care of my home and kind review. Irv

Perfect Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at Pelican Watch. It is excellently appointed and has everything we need for a carefree week at the beach. The in-ground pool is fabulous and the younger grandchildren especially love playing in the tide pools that are located close by on the beach. The grandchildren love riding bikes to the nearby ice-cream and candy store, the house location makes this very safe and easy.

Awesome home!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in your home and loved it! We had 2 grandchildren with us who loved the pool and we all loved the closeness of the beach and having both options - pool or beach. The home was lovely and everything was exactly as described. Our first time in Holden Beach and we fell in love with it, too.

Beautiful home on an amazing beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at Pelican Watch in April, 2017. This was our first time renting a beach home and vacationing in NC (we normally vacation in the carribean). This home exceeded our expectations. Six of us stayed (me, my husband, 3 teenagers and my 8 year old) and there was plenty of space for everyone. We enjoyed swimming in the large pool, grilling, looking for shells on the beach, playing cards on the large table in the kitchen, sitting on the deck watching the ocean and star gazing at night. The outside temperature was just right for sleeping with the windows open and listening to the waves. We also enjoyed the miniture golf, ice cream and several good restaurants nearby. We took a fun day trip to tour the USS North Carolina and ate lunch on the riverwalk. The owner Irv is wonderful to work with and takes great care of his property, and rightly expects his renters to do the same. We will definitely be back!
