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 2017 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!

Thank you!

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.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Holden Beach. The house was great. The beds were very comfortable and the walk to the beach was very short. The house was very clean and everything was in working order. It was very easy to commmunicate with the owners and all questions were answered quickly. We appreciated the opportunity to rent this property.
