Are you looking for your own island hideaway? Do you long to feel those balmy evening sea winds? Needs space for the whole family? If so, experience Southern Charm Beach Style! You will be interacting directly with the owner of the home!
A huge beach home rental to fit the whole family. A unique outdoor design underneath the home that integrates the sizable in-ground pool (32'x14'), Tiki bar, and under the home, covering you if any weather problems or just want shade. It is one of the biggest shorefront units on the east coast. A private unit in a gated community, it is located on a twenty-two acre wildlife preserve at the tip of the island. Here, you can converse with nature, watch deer, fox, and rabbits in their natural habitat, all the while appreciating a spectacular three hundred and sixty degree view of the beach and the Shallotte inlet. You can even see as far as Sea Isle Beach and the Intracoastal Waterway. The view nothing like you have seen before at the beach.
(Cant find your dates? I also own: Southern Grace (Listing #4038010) and Southern Bliss (Listing #7109460).
The home itself is, for lack of a better word, spectacular. It will sleep up to 50 visitors in one of its 16 enormous, well-appointed bedrooms. It includes two upsized suites along with 5 other bedrooms supplied with king size beds. There are seven bedrooms decorated with both a combination of queen beds as well as queen and single configurations. Let the children appreciate their midnight pillow fights in one of the two bunk rooms, outfitted with both double and triple bunk beds. One bedroom is also HANDICAP accessible with a handicap bathroom. The home’s 17 bathrooms guarantee that no one ever has to wait before they grab their shower. In addition, the convenient elevator gives those tired knees a rest from all that beach volleyball.
There are two giant living spaces on each floor plus a secondary living room on the first floor. You’ll find yourself spending tons of time in the magnificant over-sized great room. It includes windows on three sides of the home that serve to bring the outdoor in. There’s also a separate movie/game room including a sizable HDTV, game table and foosball table. Speaking of TV’s, you’ll think that you are in Command Central. There are a total of 18 TVs throughout the home. Sizable TVs are installed in the common areas with cable service and smaller sets in each of the bedrooms with Roku. If you want to catch a late nighttime flick, choose from our collection of many famed titles to play on the supplied DVD players. If you want to surf the internet, or perhaps just catch up on a little late nighttime work, a blazing 400 Mbps of WI-FI Mesh access is available.
The upstairs movie/game room has a kitchenette (sink, microwave, drink refrigerator) and is a great hangout for the children or to hold a breakout session with your church or club members. But when it’s time to very showcase your culinary skills preparing all that freshly caught seafood, you’re going to want to pull out all the stops and put the additional-huge kitchen to work. The three fridges units keep everything new and cool while the 10-burner cooktop, 3 ovens and two microwaves let you try out your latest recipes.
You can bask in the sunshine beside the generous private pool, which can be heated when those nights get chilly (additional fee). With the beach having an east/west orientation, you get to see the sunrise and sunset and not loose the sun at the pool in the afternoon. When you’re tired of working on that tan, you can pull your chair over to the covered area on the sizable pool outdoor space. This will get you out of the sun but still accept you to keep an eye on the children in the pool. After the sun goes down, it’s time to grab a drink at the Tiki Bar. Or challenge someone to a game of corn hole, shuffle board, b-ball, ring toss, etc. This area is well designed for huge group gatherings and the presence of two gas grilles make food preparation painless for any type of event.
There are two full service laundry rooms supplied with washers and dryers, to make it straighforward to get all that sand out of your swimsuits, and if you’re worried about having too many on your guest list, there’s parking available for up to 24 cars.
Tired of those reverse floor plans with all the walking up and down? Have the common area integrated with the outdoor/pool area for better outdoor use and flow. Kitchen and great room on the elevated first floor with outdoor space stairs to pool.
As you sit and relax, watching the sand and surf, from one of the double level decks on each side of the home, you see why Holden Beach has been nationally recognized as one of the premier “Family Beaches in the USA.” You will also make a mental note to return and experience ‘Southern Charm’ as often as you can. Just right for your family holiday, reunion, church getaway or event. All this for less than what a appealing hotel would charge on a per room, per nighttime basis! With the 8300 s.f. of space, private pool, and sea right in front of you thrown in! Whether you need a 13, 14 or 15 bedrooms or more, ‘Southern Charm’ has it all.

*IMPORTANT check-in/out requirements and pricing*:
*To rent, 25% down. Half of rest 180 days out, final 90 days out.

*Sunday to Sunday rental (7-nighttime minimum) during summer season (great so you don't hit the typical Saturday rental turnover traffic). Other check-in days okay outdoor of the summer.

*To see accurate prices, search on Sunday to Sunday. Sunday to Thursday or Thursday to Sunday (or Friday to Monday Mem/Labor Day weekends-Xmas/New Years varies). Those are the only days you can rent. I can bespoke adjust your dates, non summer, from there but those days of the week are the only ones that show the correct pricing. Prices accurate to Dec. 2023 (ask about pricing beyond that).

*Special costs for Church groups November through March.

*Weddings are welcome! $1,000 event fee.

*We highly encourage you to buy trip insurance in case your plans change. Giant groups plan far in advance to get on everybody’s schedule. And with so many people, things can change or hurricane’s can come. We have little ability to re-rent for you to get your money back for any last min. changes so most impressive to buy trip insurance. It costs 7% for standard insurance or 10.8% for Cancel For Any Reason insurance (covers you for everything as you do not need a reason). After you rent I can send a link to these options.
