Holden Beach, North Carolina
Sorry about not having reviews. Our resent guests who went through Flipkey have had trouble getting a review posted. Pirate Lover can be found on other sites that do have reviews. It has been a great little vacation spot for about ten years now. We have just added Netflix and a new futon of extra sleeping for the fourth person. We have made it a comfortable and affordable get away.Pirate Lover Is a very clean mobile home that sits in a very nice neighborhood close to the ocean. You have a view of the waterway from the front yard. It is just right for a couple or a family of three or four. No pets are allowed. Holden Beach is known as the family beach.

About the neighbourhood
Holden Beach is known as the family beach. Pirate Lover is about a four minute drive to the ocean. The streets there are very safe for walking and bike riding. Holden Beach is central to Wilmington, NC and Myrtle Beach, SC. Closest movie theatre is about 10-15 minutes away in Shallotte, out by Hwy.17. Calabash is about 20 minutes away. Calabash has so many seafood restaurants to choose from- it also has other kinds of foods there, such as great pizza at Tony's Pizza. Holden Beach not only has a nice ocean to enjoy but also the waterway for boaters/fishermen. There's a lot to do in the area.
