Canal-front home on Holden Beach with dock, deck & beach gear - dog-friendly

This newly remodeled, charming, and cozy three-bedroom, two-bathroom home is right on the canal. It's bright and beachy with all the creature comforts you'll need. Kayak through the calm channels that open up to the Intracoastal Waterway from your very own floating dock, or have a drink on the stilted decks overlooking the water. Fire up the gas grill and enjoy dinner on the deck after a full day on the beach, located one block up the street! Enjoy the Public Beach Access, ideally situated just at the end of Marlin. Wash off in the outdoor shower after the beach, or enjoy the second bathroom on the ground floor level just for your convenience.

Take a scenic ride around "The Family Beach" with the two included bicycles to sailfish park or the ice cream store. Enjoy shopping or having dinner at the many small beach restaurants in the area. The Holden Beach town park has basketball, pickleball, tennis, and playgrounds next to the marina to launch a boat. Unwind at night with dinner and a movie using the streaming services in the comfort of your own room or on the big screen in the living area.

We had a wonderful stay at the Marlin House.. All the linens/towels were provided fresh. The home was incredibly clean, and were pleasantly surprised at how cute and well decorated the home is. The kitchen has a Keurig, and had all kitchenware we needed to make dinner/lunch right there without having to bring everything. For rainy days the kids could stream TV/movies in their room from our accounts. Geographically It's perfectly situated on the West side of the island away from car noise/traffic but still on the same street as the Beach Public Access, which was a real treat to only need to go up the street to get to the beach, as we noticed there were not a-lot of public accesses on this island. They provided 2 beach chairs and beach cart in the downstairs room as well, so we did note bring them. The rear deck/dock is literally on the canal, and from the front deck you can also see some of the bigger boats sail by through the ICW in the distance, while you have drinks or snacks. It all felt very safe as well and I suppose was the very definition of a perfect little Holden Beach Island getaway. We're looking forwards to our next trip already!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at The Marlin House. The house is comfortable and cozy. It is well decorated and they provided linens, some dish detergent, some laundry detergent and items for our dog. The kitchen has the basics, maybe not equipped for a lot of cooking. We would love to stay there again sometime.

The cottage is small, but well appointed, beautifully decorated , and clean as a pin , unlike many rentals we have encountered in the past , we walked in with the beds made and fresh towels provided , a fresh and pleasant experience when you are tired from a long drive .
The Holden beach Vacasa staff were all extremely helpful and friendly !
We could not ask for a better vacation ! Priceless ! ( the fantastic weather didn’t hurt anything either.) 😜

Highly reccomended! Check-in was seamless, and there was a nice little gift waiting for our arrival. The house was super clean , comfortable and furnished/designed well. The beach was a very short walk. We loaded the two included beach chairs into the beach cart both included. The public beach accesses at Holden Beach are very spread apart, so we felt very lucky that The Marlin House has a beach access right at the tip of the street. Less steps to the beach and more convenience! The decks are large and have comfortable outdoor seating area to have dinner or a drink overlooking the water and palm trees. We cruised around the island on the two included bicycles at dusk and enjoyed sight seeing and the ocean breeze. The surrounding homes are well kept and the island feels VERY safe, a true hidden gem and I suppose the perfect little island home get-away. We will definitely be back!
