Perfect for a family!
Perfect for a family!
This rental was perfect for our extended family because of the privacy of the upstairs/downstairs layout. While most of our meals were cooked upstairs, it was nice for my parents and sister and husband to be able to make coffee and breakfast downstairs while most of the teenagers slept later upstairs. There are three separate living spaces inside and several porches both up and down outside. The adults gathered in one spot while the teenagers gathered in another. And then there was plenty of space when we needed to gather together! I would characterize Holden Beach as a quiet family beach -- not a Myrtle Beach by any means -- where you can really relax and enjoy your family. There are several good restaurants and a grocery store nearby too. We will look forward to renting this home again! Thank you.

A Fun Gathering
A Fun Gathering
This place was a very good choice for us to get together with our daughter and family, who live a long way away from us. The upstairs part was very roomy and light, making it perfect for the six of us to gather for games, meals, t.v. and videos, etc. It was nice having a separate downstairs so part of the family could sleep as late, etc., without disturbing anyone. There was a good view of the ocean fromt the upstairs front windows and side porch. The listing description and listing photos were accurate and the property was clean. The owner was quick to respond about a problem with the clothes dryer and had a repair person out as soon as possible. We loved the town of Holden Beach and enjoyed jet skiing at the Holden Beach Watersports just across the causeway. The Pizza Hut in nearby Shallotte, N.C. can't be beat for service and great pizzas! The service at Great Wall Chinese Restaurant in Holden Beach was surly and the food was not that good. (Maybe new management?) Grocery stores and Walgreen were conveniently close by. We would recomment this property to friends and relatives, and hope we can gather there next year with both children and their families.

This house was perfect for us!! And I can not thank the family enough for sharing their home with us. My mom could not go up stairs and it was perfect to have her be able to go with us.
