Recent Holden Beach property reviews


    ""Back Again" was all we hoped and more. The house was just as described/pictured. It is not a fancy upscale place...but that's not what we were looking for so it was perfect for us. My Mom and I took my 3 children just for a weekend of good quality family time together. The house is small but open and comfy with plenty of seating. We had plenty of room to move around, for the kids to play with their toys, etc. The back deck is really big with rocking chairs, lounge chairs and adirondak chairs...the photos don't do it justice. It was so nice to just walk out the back & down the path to the beach and right back into the house when we were ready for lunch/naps. :) The outdoor shower room was awesome to wash off sand before we came back in. We didn't get the chance to use them but down stairs there is a beach umbrella and a few beach toys like floats and boogie boards. We had a great stay and none of us were ready to leave when the time came. This was also my first time visiting Holden beach which was crowds, the beach was practically empty most of the time. Great for those with small children! Hoping to visit again next summer for a longer trip!"

  • Beautiful, Clean and Spacious

    "We have stayed at "Celebration" several times and will continue to come back! The home is beautiful, clean and spacious. The pool is a wonderful addition. With the outdoor shower, you never need to go inside to rinse off the sand from the beach. You can go straight from the beach to the shower to the pool. With 3 decks and the pool area, there are many places to find peace and relaxation. Walking distance to beach, restaurants, ice cream shop and bike rentals. We love it and look forward to many more family visits to your home!"

  • Great Family Vacation Home

    "We enjoyed our stay in Conky Tonkin'. We even had enough room for our preschool grandchildren to play when it rained the first couple of days. The porch was a real plus and the view of the ocean was really nice. The beach was not crowded and we enjoyed walking the brief trek to the end of the island. The bedrooms were quiet when doors were closed. The kitchen was well equipped and it was really nice having a side by side. The frogs gave us a wild concert after the rain the first 2 nights!"

  • Great place...I agree some amenities so so

    "There were 3 adults using this cottage. Great location, great house, fabulous screened in porch, comfortable beds. I will say that things we found broken upon entering the house were quickly addressed by management - repairman was there on Monday (broken refrigerator handle that someone used electrical tape to hold it on, overhead lights didn't work or hummed loudly - had to put a table lamp on the dining room table to see). However, as a previous reviewer has mentioned....bed pillows were not only in bad shape they were NASTY..thankfully we brought ones from home or would have had to go out to buy some. There were no lightweight blankets and the king and queen spreads were also not clean. A good number of dishes, glasses and silverware were dirty - know that the owner has no control over that - but that is why there is a security deposit - and finding them in that fashion wasn't a nice surprise. There were no hangers in any of the closets....and the management office got us some the following Monday. Laundry room was clean and spacious - very much appreciated. Good size cottage for a family"

Holden Beach Travel Tips

Schedule Your Next Adventure at Holden Beach Rentals

Holden Beach is perhaps one of North Carolina’s best-kept secrets that offers plenty of family fun and secluded accommodations. Holden Beach rentals allow you to enjoy all the beach itself has to offer, as well as the local community and attractions.

Relax Oceanside at Holden Beach Rentals

Holden Beach houses are the ideal destination when you’re looking for easy access to the water and sand. Rent snorkeling equipment, kayaks and even grills to create your own oasis outside of your North Carolina beach rentals. Schedule a group camping or boating trip to explore the local wilderness, and enjoy a breathtaking view of the sunrise and sunset.

Learn about Local Sea Turtles Found near Holden Beach Houses

During your stay in Holden Beach rentals, it is quite possible you’ll spot one of the resident sea turtles in the area. These turtles may weight up to 200 to 400 pounds, and live up to 100 years. They love to eat jellyfish, shrimp and crabs found along the beach in front of Holden Beach houses. You’ll have to be careful of possible nests in the sand, and when walking the beach at night you need to use red flashlights to avoid harming the turtles’ eyes. It’s possible to witness these creatures while staying in North Carolina beach rentals from May to September, during their typical mating season.

Spend a Day away from North Carolina Beach Rentals

A popular attraction within driving distance of Holden Beach rentals is the USS Battleship North Carolina, found in the town of Wilmington. Take a tour of the deck and enjoy several exhibits as a fun day trip from your Holden Beach houses. This ship has been featured in several movies and television sets, and boasts quite a fireworks show on the Fourth of July. Virtual displays and access to actual living quarters offers a unique insight into the history of the area surrounding your North Carolina beach rentals.

While planning a vacation trip to North Carolina’s Southern Coast you might want to consider additional beach lodging options in the following destinations: Bald Head Island rentals, Carolina Beach lodging, accommodation in Sunset Beach, Wilmington beach rentals, or Topsail Island vacation rentals.
