About the property

5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 1 half bath, sleeps 10, garage, decks front & rear

NEW FOR 2018 -- WE WILL HAVE AN ELEVATOR AVAILABLE TO OUR RENTERS FOR AN ADDITIONAL $150 PER WEEK. Our beautiful home, built in 2011, is located in the Seaside at Winding River development on Holden Beach. You cross one street on a boardwalk to a beachfront clubhouse and large swimming pool. In the other direction, you are a block away from the Intercoastal Waterway. Our renters also have privileges at the mainlaind Winding River Plantation which includes an Olympic-sized pool and fitness center. The home has front and rear decks with a reverse floor plan that puts awesome views of the ocean and Intercoastal Waterway right outside the Great Room. The large master bedroom on the top floor includes a king bed and large, tiled shower. One of the first-floor bedrooms has twin bunks. The enclosed garage gives you safe storage as well. Cable television with HD and WiFi Internet access is included with your rental. You're also are an easy walk to weekend festival and concert activities.

Please note: We will not be accepting rentals after April of 2019 as we will be moving full-time into the home.

The surroundings: There is tons of world-class golf within 30 minutes as well as deep-sea fishing, jet-ski rentals, para-skiing and more. The historic nearby towns of Southport and Calabash are great for day trips. Airports, shopping and more are less than an hour away in Wilmington to the north and Myrtle Beach to the south. The nearby city of Shallotte has several excellent restaurants, a movie theater, all the usual fast-food suspects and shopping such as Office Depot, Dillard's, Lowe's, Home Depot, Wal-Mart and some excellent local furniture stores. Food Lion and Walgreen's are located immediately on the mainland from the Holden Beach bridge.


We have held our prime season pricing the same. Weekly rentals run from Saturday afternoon through Saturday morning the following week. We only accept rentals in full weeks during the summer seasons unless the property is unrented six days or less in advance. We will consider shorter terms in other seasons. Minimum stay is 3 nights. We greatly prefer requests for partial-week rentals within a weekly rental period (Saturday through Saturday) instead of overlapping across two weeks (such as Friday through Monday).

We are required to have you complete bookings through our rental agency, Coastal Vacation Resorts at Holden Beach. You can contact Coastal at 800-252-7000. Or go to Coastal Vacation Resorts Dot Com on the Web.

Please note that the rental amount quoted does not include Coastal's processing fee or applicable taxes. Linens and cleaning may be subject to additional fees. There is a security deposit at the time of booking or a non-refundable fee for damage insurance at the time of reservation. If you would like access to the elevator, please tell Coastal at the time of booking.

Thanks for reading this! Let us know if you have any questions.

About Dennis Hetzel

I've spent my career in the newspaper industry as a reporter, editor, publisher and now executive director of the Ohio News Media Association in Columbus, Ohio. I'm also a published author. My novel, "Killing the Curse," imagines the Chicago Cubs (my hometown team) in a World Series and a crazed fan who will do anything to ensure they win. It also involves the President and a lot more intrigue. Check it out on Amazon or elsewhere! I'm still hoping this guitar thing works out when I grow up. My wife, Cheryl, is a retired educator. We have three adult children and plan to retire in our Holden Beach home in just a few more years. For now, it gives us a lot of pleasure to share our home with other families -- and it also helps pay the bills! Dennis Hetzel

We just completed a six-day stay at the home with two families and anything you would need for a week away from home is there. We were there for Thanksgiving and had nearly everything we would have needed for making our own feast was in the house.

The house is immaculate and the setting is awesome just a short walk from the beach. It truly is a quiet location away from a lot of the tourist traps. You won't need to bring much at all for your stay.

If you are going to grill, bring or purchase charcoal since it is not a gas grill. That was the only thing that wasn't clear about the house description. Otherwise, prepare to relax and enjoy yourself.

Holden Beach has been named one of America's best family beaches. Even on the most crowded weekends, there is plenty of room. That's because there are no high-rise condos and related urban sprawl. What you find is a long, beautiful beach and the Intercoastal Waterway for swimming and boating of all types. It's also a great spot for bike riding, jogging and even turtle watching. Within a few minutes drive are several excellent golf courses including Lockwood Folly and the Fred Couples courses at Winding River Plantation. And, within less than an hour's drive are dozens more courses and all the nightlife and shopping of Myrtle Beach and Wilmington. It's also an easy drive to the famous waterfront seafood restaurants of Calabash and the old city of Southport. The island itself has several restaurants, pubs and shops. All your immediate needs as well as more restaurants are right across the bridge or in nearby Shallotte. The summer also brings numerous outdoor concerts and festivals.
