Relaxation awaits you at Wind Beneath My Wings, a charmingly updated original Holden Beach oceanfront cottage. Here on the upper level you’ll find 3 bedrooms, two full baths, 4 tv’s with expanded cabl, DVD player, ceiling fans in every room, and hardwood floors. All this is complimented by hand-rubbed whitewashed tongue and groove walls. The kitchen features an eat-in bar, and opens into a bright and cheery great room, perfect for gathering the family ‘round for an evening of games or watching a favorite movie.

The Oceanside sunporch, furnished with rocking chairs, is THE place to catch the ocean breezes, taste the salt air, and delight in the antics of children playing in the ocean swells. There’s even a picnic table on the sunporch, a favorite place to enjoy lunchtime treats! This extra outdoor living space will greatly enhance your spring and autumn enjoyment of the beach. Rainy day? No problem.... Curl up on the sunporch with a good book and cozy blanket. Let the sounds of the ocean wash over you. A bit cool? Lower the windows and let the sun's rays warm your heart as you watch the pelicans soar along the ocean shore. A private boardwalk takes you to the beach. And if you want a little quieter experience, check out the bistro table on the streetside porch. It features unobstructed views of the salt marsh beyond, and of the gorgeous sunsets over the intracoastal waterway.

Challenge yourself on the Holden Beach Fit Trail, located just across the street. A hot/cold outdoor shower and a sundeck expands your outdoor living space. Bed Linens Included for weekly rentals. Departure Cleaning Included. Pet friendly, and the Holden Beach Dog Park is just a short walk away.

Welcome to Holden Beach, North Carolina, where family values and old fashioned fun are still a part of your vacation. Holden Beach has a very small commercial area on the island. That point is considered by many to be a key reason to keep them coming back year after year. While there are limited commercial establishments on the island, everything one could desire is located within a short driving distance.

The causeway leading to the island contains numerous specialty stores and shops, and the Town of Shallotte just 10 minutes away has several chain grocery and department stores that provide all the necessities. Wilmington and Myrtle Beach are only 35-45 minutes away and if you can’t find what you’re looking for there, it doesn't exist.

There are over 125 superb golf courses within a one-hour drive from Holden Beach. Courses range from very challenging to user-friendly for golfers who don’t always hit the ball where they want it to go. The Myrtle Beach area is perhaps the best region in the United States to find a course just right. Seasonal rates vary.

Boating, fishing and hiking the island are very popular activities. Shell hunters can find so many that the kids will fill up the car when they return home. The island is a sea turtle habitat and during the hatching season (May to October) those who don’t mind staying up late at night can witness one of nature’s most interesting pleasures – watching hundreds of small sea turtles "boil’ out of the sand and marching to the ocean.

There is no other North Carolina barrier island like Holden Beach. If you're looking for low commercial impact, and a wholesome family-oriented atmosphere, you have come to the right place.

Additional Info

We purchased this home when our children were young. We used the 2 bedroom downstairs ourselves and rented the 3 bedroom upper unit. We did not want to be in our renter's way, or make them overly aware of us. So we put in separate boardwalks, separate showers on each boardwalk, separate bench seating on the deck, and we insulated heavily between the floors. Our children grew up and had children of their own. We'd outgrown our cozy 2 bedroom unit. We then put in a spiral staircase that connects the two units, so it can be used as one 5 bedroom home with two living areas and two kitchens during the peak summer season when large combined families vacation together. We have a lock out door and insulation for the stairwell that we put in place during the spring and autumn. We've rented our lower unit and the upper unit simultaneously to unrelated parties for many years now. We have no problems or complaints about this arrangement from our renters who choose our home. Offering both units for rent simultaneously allows us to price very competitively. The listing for the downstairs 2 bedroom unit is 252. The listing number for the combined unit, with 5 bedrooms, 3 baths, two kitchens, and 2 living areas is 250. Please call me at 910.385.8892 with questions. Thanks, Beth
