About Michael Gilbert

I grew up in Carrollton, Georgia as a competitive tennis player.

From age 8, we traveled across the state, then the south, then the US, playing national tennis tournaments.

I moved to NC to play varsity tennis at NC State University. Since then, I have spent most of my working years at a large tech company, have visited over 17 countries and most states in the US. I am glad to call NC our home.

My wife and I live in Holden Beach, NC part of the year and in Beech Mountain, NC the other part of the year. Both are amazing locations.

I look forward to your stay at one of our homes, and for your feedback to share with others as we make our homes available to you ... OuttaTheBlue at Beech Mountain and OuttaTheBlue at Holden Beach.

Thank you.

Michael Gilbert purchased this house in 2016

Why Michael Gilbert chose Holden Beach

I don't think there is any better place to wake up in the morning than right in front of the ocean, hearing the waves crash, feeling the breeze through the window. In the evenings, seeing the beautiful sunset over the water. During the days, relax, fish, exercise or just hang out. This property is in the middle of a totally residential beach, voted one of the best family beaches in the US.

OuttaTheBlue at Holden Beach is right on the sand/beach with steps to the ocean. Simple, beautiful, relaxing.

What makes this house unique

Voted Best Family Beach, Holden Beach differentiates from other beaches as a non-Commercialized beach.

Great little house, we loved it! I would definitely stay here again. My only observation would be that the couch is not very comfortable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. The couch was brand new but sounds like it wasn't ideal. We will be making a few upgrades for next season including a new couch and a few extras from ideas and tips/suggestions we received this season. Thank you !!

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house...we were running a few minutes early so we ran into the owners on the driveway who were putting the finishing touches on prepping the house for our visit. Very nice couple and we were pleasantly surprised when we entered the house with a nice welcome note and a few snacks! The two bathrooms were a little small but nonetheless clean and functional. The L-shaped sofa could be a little more comfortable. Overall we enjoyed the stay very much!

Easy, Old School, Views front and back, kitchen space excellent

  • 5 of 5

Our immediate family of 5 stayed Friday, August 11-Tuesday, August 15, '17. Arrangement of 4 bedrooms, 2 shared bathrooms and living room brought back wonderful memories for both my wife and me. From childhoods decades ago when annually our respective families stayed in similar cottages. Everything was in good working order and clean. Kitchen space with an island & 2 sinks was a big plus. Easy to work around. We don't eat out during beach trips. Enjoyed being able to see marsh from rear of cottage as well as expansive view of beach at the front. Owners did a fine job welcoming us. We had a delightful time.

Love this beach house

  • 5 of 5

Outta the Blue was a charming, perfect oceanfront house for our little beach getaway for 4 generations. It was cozy but spacious with 4 lovely bedrooms. All of the new renovations were beautiful and the home was full of lots of little details that made the stay special. Everything was clean and updated. The gorgeous kitchen was a joy to cook in. The best part of all was the beach view and access! Beautiful views constantly. We enjoyed sitting in the chairs situated in the dunes in the morning with coffee and rocking on the porch anytime. The outdoor shower was perfect for the kids! We hope to go back to Outta the Blue next year. To top it off, we were met with a personalized gift tray of snacks for the kids when we first walked in. Thank you for a wonderful, special vacation time!

We had a great stay at this beachfront home. 5 adults and 2 kids) Being on the beach is great. House was comfortable and recently re-done. Well stocked kitchen for cooking and great that towels and sheets are taken care of for you. Plenty of parking. Thanks for a wonderful stay- we want to go ahead and book for next year!

Experience the natural beauty of North Carolina's premier family vacation destination.

Discover the simple coastal pleasures of this family-oriented oasis and the perfect setting for your next vacation. Just you, the family, and 11 miles of sandy, sub-tropical beach - there is plenty to go around.

Holden Beach, the vacation jewel of the Brunswick Islands, offers more than 11 miles of white sand beaches that invite you and your family to discover the natural beauty of this barrier island. Great fishing, beach-combing, boating, birding and water sports are only a few of the pleasures that await you here on Holden Beach. Hot summer days, warm sultry nights and uncrowded beaches are the perfect combination for relaxation. Come watch the dolphins from the best seat in the house, your rocking chair on your own deck.

Holden Beach is a nesting beach for the Loggerhead Sea Turtle. The Loggerhead starts nesting on our beach at night in mid May and continues to nest thru August and sometimes into September. The babies start hatching in July, continuing into October.

Discovering Holden Beach, Brunswick County and the surrounding area must take a long time as many of our guests keep coming back year after year.

Stay in the area to enjoy golf on an assortment of championship courses then enjoy some of the best seafood of your life. Or head south to the Grand Strand of Myrtle Beach where you’ll discover over a hundred more championship golf courses to try for your best game ever.
