About this Property

($89-294/room/nighttime/7 nights + costs) *See below for check-in/out requirements*

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!
A huge beach home rental to fit the whole family. A unique outdoor design underneath the home that integrates the enormous 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 relishing 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 sizable, 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 savor 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 massive living spaces on each floor plus a secondary living room on the first floor. You’ll find yourself spending tons of time in the beautiful 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 19 TVs throughout the home. Enormous 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 a collection of over 30 trendy 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 newly caught seafood, you’re going to want to pull out all the stops and put the additional-sizable 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 generous 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 simple for any type of event.
There are two full service laundry rooms supplied with washers and dryers, to make it painless 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 classy 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. 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 wedding fee if rent for less than 7 nights.

*We highly encourage you to buy trip insurance in case your plans change. Substantial 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 premium 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.

How to Save Money on Your Rental

  • Find the tourism bureau in the area you wish to travel. Most official tourism bureaus will send travel guide books with savings for rental properties, dining and activities. Search for these books and coupon books, because this allows visitors to enjoy the very same fantastic activities at a generally significantly discounted.
  • Are you willing to alter your travel week? Off-season rates are usually a fraction of top fees.
  • Many vacation rental companies and owners offer price reductions for active and veteran men and women of the US Armed forces, or repeat vacation goers to the same vacation home. Be sure to ask property owner to see if your visiting gang is eligible for a discounted price.
  • Some properties are primarily designed for specific groups of vacationers. Event homes are great for weddings, wedding parties and corporate meetings. Some properties appeal to wildlife enthusiasts. Other properties are situated close to night life. You should prioritize your proximity to the activities and landmarks you are most excited about.
  • Property management companies and individual rental owners frequently offer their guests an option to obtain trip insurance coverage. Trip insurance, which generally will cost you anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base rental cost, offers buyers reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed as a result of health related emergencies or storms, and additionally ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unexpected motel stay or additional gas.

Settle on your Town and Vacation Week

Consensus can be tough between members of the family, but once this tricky part is complete everything will start to fall in place.

How Much Rental home Do You Need?

How many family members are planning to share your getaway? Remember that that a lot of rentals list maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the living area. It is important to figure out what is acceptable for your family. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are usually available on the internet. Otherwise, get in touch with the property owner before you reserve the home.

Stick to a Budget

Confirm that "Oceanfront Mansion (8,300 sf)*Pool*Elevator*Tiki Bar 'Southern Charm" fits your price range *during your desired dates*. Make sure you get cost-sharing commitments from travel companions before booking a pricey vacation property.

Its All About Amenities

What amenities is the group interested in? Do you want a rental with outside dining area? Will the unit need to be oceanfront, in town, or in close proximity to restaurants? Are items like beach chairs, gas grills, umbrellas, buggies or coolers at your disposal and included in your rental property rate? Create a list of priority features to guide narrow your search.

Accessibility and Special Things to consider

Grandma and Grandpa will thank you for not renting a stairs-access-only condo on the Third floor. If wheel chair accessibility, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized devices are needed, factor that into your search. The majority of vacation rental listings will include a list of amenities.

Fido Approved

Be sure to include your companion! Pet guidelines are different at each rental. Read descriptions carefully. Many restrictions might eliminate a potential vacation property. Examine your contract carefully! Charges may apply when animals are included. If in doubt, ask the property manager and get it in writing.

  • When everything is out, begin a walk-through of the rental home to confirm no property damage occurred during your remain. If you can, do this walk-out review with the property manager present. If the property owner is not available, be sure to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you enjoy your rental home? Just about all property management companies and rental home sites make it easy for customers to give comments. If your rental and/or property manager was great, they'll appreciate your compliments. If something went wrong, we suggest being pleasant but honest with regards to experience. Top property owners and managers will try hard to rectify the situation.
