Bright, spacious, clean home right on the beach! Who could ask for more?

My wife and I along with my mother in law have vacationed the past four years in a cozy condo in Wrightsville Beach and had always enjoyed ourselves. It was not big but it suited our needs until last year and we had more than a few rainy days. After being in tight quarters for a few days together we thought we would try something different this year and rent a house instead. What a great decision! We all loved having our own space, the girls loved being able to walk right out of the bedrooms and onto the second level deck to read. I really liked the short walk to get to the beach! We spent pretty much every morning and evening walking along the shore looking for shells and sea glass and came away with quite a bit. The kitchen had everything we needed and was nice and clean. The dishwasher was handy to have! And I really liked being able to take a nice hot shower using the outside one coming straight in from the beach before even going inside.

As far as the local places to eat and see went, we really enjoyed the short drive to so many different places to eat on either side of the causeway bridge, none of us had a bad meal our entire stay. And there were plenty of souvenir shops to visit as well. Food Lion was very convenient too. Everyone we ran into seemed so friendly - I felt much more at home in Holden Beach versus Wrightsville Beach. All in all we had a great trip and hated leaving Saturday morning. Thanks to Beth and Bill for allowing us to stay in their beautiful home!

Family Beach Vacation

We love the house, although would like to see some upgrades in the kitchen and baths in the coming years. Carport is also in need of a little cleaning. We also noticed some water on the ceiling by the foot of the stairs. Looked like maybe AC vent leaking ??

So much fun!

We loved our stay at Contentment. There was plenty of space for our party of 12. The kitchen is big and fully stocked, which made preparing meals easy. The beach in front of the home was everything we could want. There was big flat areas for playing games and waves big enough for boogie boarding. The pier was a little less than a mile from the house and was the perfect distance for runs and walks. There are plenty of shells to find for the "shellers". We even had a dolphin come right up to the shore and the kids ran along beside it on the beach. In the beginning of the week it was unseasonably cool. We still went out and enjoyed the salt air and the ocean. We did venture out a little more because of the temperature outside. About 40 minutes from the home we took the ferry to Fort Fischer. The Ferry is $5 total for the car and all the people. At Fort Fischer we went to the Aquarium and did a nice hike on the Basin Trail, which was great for kids! On Holden Beach we explored the end of the island and went on walks around the point towards the inter coastal, which was fantastic- we saw a whole fever of stingray, tons of birds, and the sand is beautifully soft. There is also a park just before the bridge to leave the island, which has a playground, basketball, and tennis. Perfect for breaks from the beach.
We had so much fun!

Winter, We're so glad you loved Holden beach and our home as much as we do. No matter the season, the area has so much to do and see ! Our grandchildren love that aquarium too....when they were just little ones, they were fascinated by the touch tank. Sounds like you made some wonderful family memories ! I hope you'll visit again.
