Description from owner

($6,950 to $26,950+fees depending upon season and # of nights)

Are you looking for your own island escape? Do you long to feel those balmy evening ocean breezes? If so, why don't you be one of the first to Experience Southern Charm Beach Style!

Southern Charm is new construction that opened for occupancy in April of 2013. A unique outdoor design underneath the house that integrates the pool, Tiki bar, and dance floor, covering you if any weather problems or just want shade. It is one of the largest beachfront rentals on the east coast. A private estate 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 enjoying a spectacular three hundred and sixty degree view of the beach and the Shallotte inlet. You can even see as far as Ocean Isle Beach and the Intracoastal Waterway.

The house itself is, for lack of a better word, spectacular. It will sleep between 32-50+ guests in one of its 16 large, well-appointed bedrooms. It features two oversized suites along with 5 other bedrooms equipped with king size beds. There are seven bedrooms furnished with both a combination of queen beds as well as queen and single configurations. Let the kids enjoy 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 house'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 huge living spaces on each floor plus a secondary living room on the first floor. You'll find yourself spending lots of time in the breathtaking over-sized great room. It boasts windows on three sides of the house that serve to bring the outside in. There's also a separate movie/game room featuring a large HDTV, game table and foosball table. Speaking of TV's, you'll think that you are in Command Central. There are a total of 19 televisions throughout the house. Large TVs are installed in the common areas with smaller sets in each of the bedrooms. Premium cable service is provided by CCTV. If you want to catch a late night flick, choose from a collection of over 30 popular titles to play on the provided DVD players. If you want to surf the internet, or perhaps just catch up on a little late night work, a blazing 30 Mbps of WI-FI access is available.

The upstairs movie/game room has a kitchenette (sink, microwave, drink refrigerator) and is a great hangout for the kids or to hold a breakout session with your church or club members. But when it's time to really showcase your culinary skills preparing all that freshly caught seafood, you're going to want to pull out all the stops and put the extra-large kitchen to work. The three refrigerators units keep everything fresh 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 large private pool, which can be heated when those nights get chilly (extra 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 large pool deck. This will get you out of the sun but still allow you to keep an eye on the kids in the pool. After the sun goes down, it's time to grab a drink at the Tiki Bar, turn on the music and get out on the large built-in dance floor. Or challenge someone to a game of ping pong or corn hole. This area is well designed for large group gatherings and the presence of two gas grills make food preparation easy for any type of event.

There are two full service laundry rooms equipped with washers and dryers, to make it easy 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 26-32 cars (there is no on street parking allowed).

Tired of those reverse floor plans with all the walking up and down? Have the common area integrated with the outside/pool area for better outside use and flow. Kitchen and great room on the elevated first floor with deck 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 house, 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 vacation, reunion, church retreat or event. All this for less than what a nice hotel would charge on a per room, per night basis! With the 8000 s.f. of space, private pool, and ocean right in front of you thrown in! Whether you need a 13, 14 or 15 bedrooms or more, 'Southern Charm' has it all.

Sunday to Sunday rental during prime season (great so you don't hit the typical Saturday rental turnover traffic). Mid week or Saturday check-in okay in the off season.

Beds: 7 King Beds, 12 Queen Beds, 12 Twin Beds, 1 Sofa Bed

Owner Supplied Testimonials

It was wonderful! Everyone had a great time - the kids, parents and Joyce and I. The house had enough room for all of us - and being under one roof facilitated the dialogue. Feeding 47 people was a challenge but there was enough fridge and storage space to stock up once. The beach was great- warm as bath water and gradual depth so kids were safe. Isolated enough that it felt like our own private beach - no stranger danger to worry about. We spent the whole week in the house and on the beach. No need to seek excitement elsewhere. Paul S.

This is the second year that our church group has used this place. Just like the first visit everything was great. Very larger roomy house, clean, beautiful views (front and back), nice beach areas and I could go on and on. This place is perfect for large groups and it really allows you to either be interactive with your group and or find quite places to get away by yourself.

We had an absolutely amazing time at the Southern Charm house. The pictures truly do not do it justice, it is gorgeous. We decided to have our wedding here once we saw the pictures. It was the perfect space for our guests. The house is so big that you never felt like you were cramped with 50 people in one house. Greg was great to work with and very responsive to our emails and questions. I would highly recommend this house and I hope to come back myself some day - maybe for our anniversary!

Or family had not been together in 8 years as a group....some of us had not even seen each other in 8 years but this home welcomed all of us and it felt like yesterday since we had seen each other! There were places for us to be together, there were quiet corners to have one on one time or just be alone to read. Words cannot describe the memories that were created during this magnificent week.

It was a perfect oceanfront setting and with intracoastal views, the pool was a great late afternoon spot to hang out after a day at the beach. The rooms we more than accommodating for our family of 37 plus our two amazing chefs that helped out in the kitchen.

It hasn't even been a week since we are there, I miss my family and the place where we all played games, made movies, rocked on the decks into the late hours, put together puzzles, ate meals together as a family and every night when the house was quiet and everyone was asleep all I could think about was how luck I was to have found this perfect venue.

Thank you. We will do this again - at your beach house in 3 years!!
