Coastal North Carolina Cottage Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 1 Sleeping Area, 3 Baths, H/C Outside Shower, Sleeps 12

Relax on a sub-tropical island as palm trees sway in the breeze and the sounds of the ocean stimulate your senses. Our classically restored beach cottage, with original wood ceilings and floors, awaits your arrival. The home is 100 yards from the beach and is equipped with some beach gear for your convenience. Two floors allow for ample space, both inside and out, to gather with family and friends or sneak away to a private area. The cottage has 5 bedrooms 4-Q/2-Bunks, plus a partially enclosed sleeping area with 2-twin beds, 3 full baths and an enclosed hot/cold outdoor shower. Our home is across the street from a beautiful, clean beach and a short walk to restaurants, oyster bar, and deli. Many of the finest golf courses between Myrtle Beach and Wilmington are a short drive away. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy bike riding, kayaking, fishing, golf, kite flying, playing in the surf, or just relaxing on the sand with a good book and your favorite beverage.

We had a great 14 day vacation trip at your Flamin

  • 3 of 5

We had a great 14 day vacation trip at your Flamingo Cottage.

Sister and family came over from the Netherlands with our dad from 84 and enjoyed the nice house and special the beach at walking distance.

With 12 almost adults it’s a little tide with dinner on the table but we could mannish it with including the nice kitchen (bar)

Little disappointment was that we had to bring our one bedsheets and towels.

Nice extra where the games in the house the kids and even grandpa (not English speaker) enjoyed it

Thank you to let use rent your property it is a great place

Relaxing and Comfortable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everybody who went with us to this home for a week away was pleased with both location and amenities; our list of must haves was met and exceeded! With three generations in tow that says a multitude about Flamingo Cottage. It even scored big with teen and tweens as they could get away downstairs for that separation stuff they seem to crave. Upstairs were five adults and two younger children with plenty of room to stretch out even when the other three kids were there with us. We especially got lots of time on the front porch, even when raining. Furnishings inside were comfortable and clean. And the kids were eager to clean off sand and sunscreen in the outdoor shower. Eating most of our meals at "home" was easy with such a well-stocked and roomy kitchen and there was plenty of room for all at the table. After driving to southwest end of island, we were particularly pleased to be so close to the beach at the quieter northeast end. Our only hitches were that because of a family emergency, some who had planned to come were not able to be there and the week was way too short! Nobody wanted to leave!

Stayed the last week of July 2014 and had a great time! The cottage is nicely furnished with a well equipped kitchen. Especially liked the sun room, having a real backyard for the kids to play games and being able to grill. The owners were great to work with. Will definitely consider again for our bi-yearly beach vacation.

Best family vacation in 11 years!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was out family's 11th year going to Holden! It's our favorite place. We loved our stay at Flamingo. Adorable cottage style with so much room. The decor was so pretty and updated extras which made us feel at home. Location worked out just fine. Literally steps to the beach! Loved the yard too. It was a perfect week for us and we can't wait to go back! Owners were awesome to work with and we would recommend this vacation home very highly. Thanks Janet and Tony for sharing your beautiful home with us!!!

Fathers Day, Birthday and 40 Wedding Anniversary Celebrations

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week of celebrations at the Flamingo. The location was perfect as the east side of Holden is quiet and less traveled. The cottage was the perfect set up for our three families with the older boys having the ground floor and space for the later night activities. It was just a short walk to the beach and the gals enjoyed the well equipped kitchen. Tony was available 24/7 for any questions of concerns. We would highly recommend this rental, truly was a home away from home.
