Makin' Waves - a Classic Oceanfront Cottage at a Family Beach

  • 4 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms


Makin' Waves is a classic beach cottage which has been updated and modernized to include what you, its guests, need to enjoy your visit, for a weekend, a week, a month, or even more. You can walk out on your own boardwalk directly to the sandy beach less than 200 feet away. Cool ocean breezes blow most of the day, and frequently, schools of fish or porpoises swim by

The oceanfront porch is great for ocean watching, sunrise watching, sunset watching, or star gazing. You can sit in the rocking chairs, put your feet up on the rail, and relax, slow down, and breathe the salt air

Makin' Waves has to pass our 'family test, ' as members of our family stay here. The kitchen appliances have all recently been replaced, and the queen beds are brand new. Beds have new waterproof mattress covers, pillows are replaced frequently, carpet is steam-cleaned frequently, and in addition to frequent cleaning for each renter, we scour the house top to bottom in the spring and in the fall, and we exterminate for pests monthly. We are clean-freaks, so please give us feedback!

Holden Beach is an uncrowded south-facing beach on the lower North Carolina coast. The atmosphere is family, child, and everybody- friendly and is a wonderful place for family and friends of all generations and ages to relax and enjoy playing, swimming, fishing, sunning, flying kites, and walking together - or just sitting on the porch together watching the ocean and getting a tan. You'll never want to leave and go back to the 'real world. '

Brand-new in 2014! All the porches, steps and walkways have been replaced to make your stay even more pleasant and comfortable. We take great pride in maintaining our wonderful Makin' Waves and keeping it in top shape for our own family, as well as for other families who stay with us
