($107-357/room/night/7 nights + fees) *See below for check-in/out requirements*
Are you looking for your own island escape? Do you long to feel those balmy evening ocean breezes? Needs space for the whole family? If so, experience Southern Charm Beach Style!
A large beach house rental to fit the whole family. A unique outdoor design underneath the house that integrates the large in-ground pool (32'x14'), Tiki bar, and under the house, 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 view nothing like you have seen before at the beach.
The house itself is, for lack of a better word, spectacular. It will sleep up to 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 cable service and smaller sets in each of the bedrooms with Roku. 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 500 Mbps of WiFI Mesh 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. Or challenge someone to a game of corn hole, shuffle board, basketball, ring toss, etc. 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 24 cars.
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 8300 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.
*IMPORTANT check-in/out requirements and pricing*:
*Sunday to Sunday rental (7-night minimum) during summer season (great so you don't hit the typical Saturday rental turnover traffic). Other check-in days okay outside of the summer.
*To see accurate rates, search on Sunday to Sunday. Sunday to Thursday or Thursday to Sunday. Those are the only days you can book. I can custom 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. 2024 (ask about pricing beyond that).
*Special rates 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. Large groups plan far in advance to get on everyone’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 minute changes so best to purchase 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 book I can send a link to these options.
We stayed at Southern Charm for our company retreat with a group of 30 people, and with 16 bedrooms the house had no problem fitting everyone. Add to that the multiple living areas for people to gather, and it was pretty much perfect. Greg is very responsive, so never had a question we coudn't get answered quickly. A few things that would be worth knowing about this house: 1. The kitchen is STOCKED with supplies. We brought some of our own equipment to be safe, and there was just no need. Just about anything we could dream up a need for was found in one or another of the many cabinets. 2. House is clean and well decorated. Beds were very comfortable and linens are quality. Everyone we invited was very impressed. 3. Walk to the beach is a hike. Just be sure you have everything you need as you go. Worst case is you get your exercise going back and forth. 4. Pool and Tiki bar are awesome. Our guests spent a LOT of time at both and had great fun setting up and using the bar. 5. Neighborhood is pretty strict about noise, so if you are planning live music, that can be problematic. We had a guitar player and had to have him turn it way down to avoid issues. That said, Greg worked with us and the neighborhood and all was well. And this was my fault for not taking the "no loud party" reminders to heart. They did warn me! Would definitely return, but as it is already booked for next year we'll be moving to its sister house, Southern Grace. Can't wait to see how that one stacks up to the original.Stayed September 2021
Visited Southern Charm with three other families. Total of 8 adults and 12 kids. This place was perfect. Plenty of space. We had multiple empty bedrooms and could have accommodated at least 2 more families. The kids loved the pool. Adults loved the back deck for drinks and conversation after the kids were asleep. Very private beach. Overall an amazing property. Highly recommend.Stayed August 2021
Fantastic house providing ample space for a reunion of 50 ages 1/2 year to 70.. Very spacious living and deck area with a kitchen well set-up to cook nightly meals. Great pool and very quiet and beautiful beach.Stayed August 2021
This house is everything it says it is! Right on the beach, open floor plan, large windows in the living area with gorgeous view of the ocean, good sized bedrooms with private bath for each, large kitchen and a beautiful pool and tiki bar. What more could we ask! Also, Greg the manager was very helpful with all questions. We had a time of our life!!Stayed August 2021
We rented the Southern Charm beach house for our 40 person wedding, and can’t say enough great things about it! Tons of space, beautiful location, and really clear instructions from Greg. Our entire family was blown away with how comfortable our stay was. I would highly recommend this house for a small wedding or a large party! We had a couple small plumbing issues, but they were resolved quickly. Overall a really great week on a beautiful beach!Stayed May 2021
Everyone had a great time. The best place to rent so you can spend time with everyone together & enough room to get away. The house has the perfect Layout . Would recommend to everyone with large family .Stayed April 2021
My Husband and I were originally supposed to be married at the Grove Park Inn. Due to the Pandemic we had to make changes to our wedding at the very last minute. One of our friends told us about the Southern Charm House in Holden Beach. We had never been to Holden Beach however we thought it would be a great idea for a back up plan. Our wedding was this past weekend and it was perfect!!! In our eyes it was actually better than the Grove Park Inn. The house slept our entire wedding party plus family perfectly. The pictures on VRBO do not do the house justice. It was absolutely gorgeous and our wedding was everything we wanted and then some. The owner was amazing to work with and very quick with his responses. He even assisted with finding a caterer and officiant. We planned our wedding in less than 90 days and it was absolutely perfect. I highly highly recommend.

We had an amazing September wedding in this house. We slept 34 people extremely comfortably, and kids got their own bunk bed rooms to romp around in. Kitchen fit/fed everyone, pool did the reception just fine, beach was amazing! Only issue was some biting flies and mosquitoes; but the owner left the number for a company to call and took them less than 48 hours to get out.Stayed September 2020
Our 30 guests were overwhelmed by the beauty of the property and Holden Beach. The 180 degree ocean vista with both sunrises and sunsets was stunning. Owner Greg went above and beyond to assure that we had a memorable 5 days - after accommodating us when Hurricane Dorian struck the island on our initial reservation dates. He could not have been nicer. The house is stunning and practical for large groups.Stayed November 2019
My family found Southern Charm to be a lovely place with excellent views of the ocean, waterway and marsh. More birds (many varieties) than ever! The well equipped house was great. We will be returning next year.Stayed September 2019
