About Debbie Banning

We have been married for 36 years and have 3 children and 6 grandchildren. We also have 2 black lab/german shepherd dogs. We grew up in the Northern Virginia/Maryland area and are currently living in the mountains of Virginia.

Debbie Banning purchased this house in 2002

Why Debbie Banning chose Coastal North Carolina

We built this home in 2002 after renting many times at Holden Beach and other beaches with our 3 children. We decided it was time to build. We chose the west end of Holden Beach because of its wide and uncrowded beach and its location to the inlet for exploring. The sunsets are breathtaking!

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the location of our lot due to its privacy, but most importantly because of its views from every window and porch. We can see the ocean, intracoastal waterway and marsh. There is a widow's walk going up from the top deck where you can see over the rooftop for a 360 degree view.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is beautiful and well kept. The location is unbeatable. We all really loved it.

Best house yet!

  • 5 of 5

We had a super time. Thank you so much. We vacation with the same two families every year (8 years now) and always go to different places (Outer Banks, Key Largo, Anna Maria, Pine Baron . . .). We always have a great time but this is the first time I've heard any other family say they want to come back to the same house. I believe we are going to forget our trip to Destin next year and come back to Holden. Yeah!!

The owners are great in their communications before your stay, Ken was very nice to deal with & we had no problems while we were there. If you are looking for a vacation spot Coast Watch is the place for you!! Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us.

We loved it! Coast Watch was great.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the spacious great room on the top floor, and the two master bedroom suites since my husband's parents vacationed with us. I liked the color schemes and beach décor throughout the house. We were emailed a lockbox code to access a key to get into the house, so there was no check-in or waiting in line anywhere. We contacted Ken, the property manager, by phone and he said to call if we had any questions or needed anything - we never had to call again. Everything was very clean and worked well. Linens were folded on the ends of each bed. The kitchen is huge and well stocked with dishes, utensils, pots, pans, blender, 3 coffee pots, electric griddle, electric fry pan, cutting boards, etc. The A/C worked well with different thermostats for each floor. The elevator made getting the groceries to the third-floor kitchen much easier. The house is exactly as pictured. The views are fabulous. The beach is very wide and there are a lot of shells -- I recommend wearing some kind of beach shoe or flip-flops to walk through the dunes and across the shells to the wide, sandy beach. There were so few people I could hardly believe it. It was still a bit early in the summer season. We paid for a tank of propane to heat the pool, and it was worth it. We spent more time in the pool than anywhere -- all 3 generations of us. But there's no shade on the pool or pool deck, so we used a beach tent there. It worked out very well. We also enjoyed the pergola near the pool. I would recommend Coast Watch to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation with lots of privacy. Debbie, the owner, was great to work with and everything fully met or exceeded our expectations.

Beautiful home - owner super easy to work with

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided on a spur of the moment trip to the beach to celebrate my birthday. Debbie was awesome to work with - very flexible about our last minute arrangements. The house is gorgeous - we loved the views, the porches, the lookout up top...we like to cook so loved the well equipped kitchen. - And the elevator was nice. Very restful break - we felt as if we had been away a week and it was only 3 days..

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

I have vacationed all up and down the NC and SC beaches, and this location was my favorite so far! The layout of the house is perfect and the views from all over the home are breathtaking. The West End of Holden is so beautiful and quiet. It truly is a great family beach. A great area for crabbing, fishing, surfing, and a lot of family fun! Ken, the property manager, was very helpful also!

Loved Coast Watch!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Coast Watch! It was in a great location on the beach, secluded and away from most of the crowds. The house was very clean and well-stocked. We loved the pool and gazebo area too. There were a couple of "logoon" areas that our kids loved to explore and catch crabs in. Debbie, the owner, was very accessible and always answered my questions very quickly. And, Ken, the house manager, was awesome and came by to check on us and gave us some great recommendations for fresh seafood, etc... We have stayed on Holden Beach Island for many years, and this was by far one of our most favorite houses to stay. We'll definitley rent Coast Watch again.

Car: necessary

Holden Beach is a sea turtle sanctuary. For those that are interested, there is a 'Turtle Talk' each week during the summer. The local 'Turtle Patrol' combs the beach looking for turtle hatchings and counting the nests. They mark the nests to protect them. The Turtle Patrol has asked to please keep flood lights off.
