Property description

The Tern Inn is the perfect way to spend your vacation with family or friends.

This beautiful, pet-friendly, 2-story home was created with your family and friends in mind. We have a custom-made, ten foot dining table that easily seats 14, two separate sitting rooms with cable television and DVD players and private baths attached to each of the four bedrooms. We have over 35 windows that offer beautiful views of the ocean or Intracoastal Waterway so you can relax and enjoy the view from anywhere in the house.

We are also one of the few handicap equipped homes on the island with an elevator for easy accessibility and a full-size handicap bathroom with fully equipped shower.

You will fall instantly in love with rocking in the chairs on the back deck while taking in the breathtaking views of the ocean that have made Holden Beach one of the most popular family beaches around.

We have stocked our home to help you forget about the busyness of life and fall in love with kicking off your shoes and getting back in touch with fun and relaxation. We offer a library of books for your vacation reading downtime and boogie boards & sand toys for the kids (ok, the adults too). You can even come straight off the beach to the private outdoor shower and picnic area on the ground floor.

We love our beach house and we think you will too. For larger families or groups, consider renting our additional oceanfront property 'Sandcastle' (VRBO # 442909) next door.
