Family Friendly & Fido-Friendly Oceanfront 2BR 1BA, New HEATED POOL For 2022 Season !

Relaxation awaits you at Wind Beneath My Wings, a charmingly updated original Holden Beach oceanfront duplex cottage. Here on the upper level you'll find 3 bedrooms, two full baths, 4 flatscreen tv's with expanded cable, 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. 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 are included for weekly rentals, as is departure cleaning.

Recent Updates:

We are so excited to announce installation of a heated saltwater pool !

The pool is a generous 12 x 23 with plenty of decking for the both the upper unit and the lower unit to enjoy. We will have heating capability for the early spring and later fall rentals. Heat must be requested at least 1 week prior to your arrival.

This private pool will be open from Easter - October. If you choose to purchase pool heat, we will turn on the heater 24 hours prior to your arrival during April, May, Sept and Oct, with the understanding that outdoor weather conditions greatly affect pool water temperature and under the best of conditions, the pool can be heated to a maximum of 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Pool heaters can only maintain a temperature of 8-10 degrees above outside air temperature. Pool heaters cannot operate if the temperature outside is under 55 degrees.

CANCELLATIONS AND TRANSFERS. In the event there is a cancellation or a transfer of a confirmed rental for any reason, Owner must be notified in writing, email or fax. We will make every reasonable effort to re-rent the cancelled property. If the cancelled property is re-rented for the original lease amount, tenant will receive a refund of the payment made less $225.00, reservation fee, credit card processing fees, applicable taxes, and the trip insurance premium. Refunds will be made within 60 days after receipt of entire balance due on new reservations, on same property, same rental period, and same rental rate;

ABOUT BRINGING YOUR DOG. We allow one small dog (under 45 pounds) with a $300 non-refundable pet fee. Any additional pet(s) must be approved through property owner and will result in multiple pet fees. This fee is not to cover damages caused by a pet, but just covers the privilege of bringing them along on your vacation. Any cost resulting from damages, extra cleaning, fleas, odors, etc. that occur as a result from a pet being in a property will be deducted from your refundable security deposit.-Please pick up any and all pet waste after your pet whether on or off the rental property.-PUPPIES ARE NOT ALLOWED. -Nails must be clipped to avoid scratching damage.-The pet MUST be on a flea program, and owner must be able to provide evidence of such program if required. -The pet can NOT be left unattended.-The pet is NOT allowed on the furnishings or in/on bedding. -Pets are NOT allowed on the beach from May 20 to September 10, with the exception of the hours from 5:00 pm to 9:00 am.

Why Purchased: 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 VRBO listing number for the 2 bedroom1 bath lower unit is 2003744. The VRBO listing number for the whole house (5 bedroom 3 bath, 2 kitchens, 2 living areas) is 869594

About Holden Beach

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.
