Best family beach

For a “laid-back” atmosphere, Leatherman favors Holden Beach, N.C. (pop. 575). On a tiny barrier island, the town is primarily residential, and traffic and crime are minimal. “When I look at the family beaches, safety is a very big issue,” Leatherman says.

In our photos we have a schedule of the Holden Beach Concert Series. Look at what concerts are scheduled when you are staying in our house. Enjoy!

Come stay in our house at Holden Beach!

About Byron Ritter

Our parents built this house in 1979. They lived in it from 1991 until 2008. The house and property is well maintained. The house is now owened by the three brothers families. We live in the Piedmont Triad of North Carolina. We vacation in our house each year so we know what is expected for a vacation home.

Byron Ritter purchased this house in 1979

Why Byron Ritter chose Coastal North Carolina

We have new premium mattresses and box springs on all four queen size beds.This property is a great location for walking to the beach or the inland water way. You can see both the ocean and the water way from the porches. The ocean is only a short 5 minute walk from the house. There is a private walk way over the dunes we help maintain that is part of the walk over to the beach.

What makes this house unique

We have an enclosed downstairs with outside and inside showers downstairs. There is room for two cars in the inclosed downstairs. You can have dinner downstairs great for hosting neighbors. We have charcoal grill provided.

Perfect Location and Comfortable House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this house for our vacation this year and were not disappointed. We had a very short walk to the beach, and anything you could think of needing was provided in the house, with the exception of towels and linens, which we knew we had to bring. The beds were very comfortable, and from the moment we arrived, we felt right at home. Byron answered any questions right away, usually within the hour. Loved this year's vacation and can't wait to go again next year. By the way, it's also pet friendly, which made it that much better! Thanks, Byron!

Look no further...this is it!

We stayed there just before Memorial Day and everything was great. Located near everything and very comfortable. Nice house for an affordable stay and best of all we could bring our dog. We will stay there again.

Thanks Byron

Owner's Response: We are very appreciative of your nice review. We encourage our guests to bring pets. Pets are part of the family and make a vacation that much more special. We do have a pet charge but have found most guests would prefer to pay for having their pet with them rather than pay to have them boarded. Thank you.

Our new favorite place to stay at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We love going to the beach and Holden Beach is becoming the beach we like best in NC. Our new favorite place to stay is this house. This was our second trip and we had the best time. The house is great - easy walk to the beach which makes spending the day on the beach a breeze not having to take EVERYTHING with you. We will continue to book this house each year each trip!! Thanks so much for sharing your home for rental - Hope & Clay Jenkins

Family vaca

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time staying here. The locale is great (45 min from Myrtle Beach), and the beach is clean and close. The house was exactly as seen in the pics. Plenty of room for a family. Loved the keyless entry. I liked being able to do laundry before I got home. We all slept well although the mattresses were softer than ours at home. Very quiet island. We would definitely stay here again if we revisit the area.
