About the property

We invite you to visit our beach house, which has been family-owned and operated (many years). Our home is located on a quiet street and is a 5-minute one block walk to the beach. We have a neighborhood crosswalk with stairs for easy beach access on Ocean Blvd. We provide beach chairs (updated each year) and a rolling beach cart to make it easy to take all of your necessary items over to the beach. We update the house with many improvements each year. We encourage guests to bring pets. Pets make the vacation / visit much more enjoyable. The pet fee is prorated based on the number of days. Our home is furnished as if it were a full-time residence and has many extras not generally found in a rental property. We have a family room that comfortably seats 7 with a leather sofa and love seat (new in 2016) and 2 chairs. There is a 50-inch smart television, entertainment table, and blue-ray DVD player (all new in 2017). We have fast internet with secure Wi-Fi and direct Ethernet access.

The enclosed garage underneath the house will accommodate two cars, parked bumper-to bumper. There is a laundry room with washer and dryer in the garage. There is a second full-size refrigerator in the laundry room (2015). We also have an outdoor, enclosed shower with hot and cold water, useful when coming in from the beach. There is a small charcoal grill in the garage.

Judge to be the best family beach in 2015

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.

Additional rooms close by: Do you have a larger group coming? There is a duplex directly across the street that sleeps 8 and it is also listed on HomeAway as property 220585. This is ideal for a family reunion or large gathering that needs additional space.

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!

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.

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.
