Welcome to "The Barnacle" one of the most historical homes on Holden Beach! On the oceanfront, above the dunes and beach, "The Barnacle" greets you indoors with lively art and regional photography by the original owner, a nature-loving professional artist. He and his wife designed the home to enjoy ever-changing views and pleasures of the enticing Atlantic Ocean— sunrises, sunsets, the far horizon, beautiful skies, native growth, sand and surf. All are viewed through a full façade of windows or accessed by a private footpath to the ocean. "The Barnacle" features weathered-wood accents, natural driftwood, shells from the sea, and other authentic artifacts of Holden Beach. A ship’s anchor rests near the entrance, and the face of a noble Sea Captain, carved into a post of the dining area by the owner, overlooks the ocean and ends up in quite a few group photos of visiting guests. The entryway displays a published biography of the life and times of the late artist-owner, including those at Holden Beach. His wife preserves his legacy at this place they loved by sharing their warm and inviting beach home with vacationers.

The living room offers built-in sofa and window bench seating, comfortable recliners, a rocker, occasional tables, books, and fishnet window coverings for natural light and
ocean views. The dining table seats 8. The well-equipped kitchen provides the delight of ocean views from 7 large windows while you create tasty home-cooked meals. Ceiling fans add breezes in all living and sleeping areas. With 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, the home comfortably accommodates 6 - 8 guests. Bedroom #1 has a queen bed, #2 two full beds, and #3 two full beds. The two full bathrooms are shower-only with one of the bathrooms positioned near the entryway. Downstairs an additional outdoor shower with hot-cold water is enclosed, ideal for rinsing off after a day on the beach.

While rocking away your cares on the covered oceanfront porch, watch shrimp boats drag their nets and bathers enjoy the waves as seabirds sail the skies. Relax and
unwind on the sundeck, complete with a compass hand-carved into the deck flooring. Your toes can be in the sand in just a few minutes by way of the private beach
boardwalk. Search for your favorite seashells, sharks’ teeth, driftwood, or other gifts from the sea, or try your hand at surf fishing. Good luck awaits!

We hope that you will fall in love with & "The Barnacle" just as much as we have, and be a return guest, year after year!
