Great Family Retreat
"Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Celebration. The bedroom and bathroom for each family was a plus, especially with small children. We had plenty of room to eat, visit, and watch TV in the great room. Being able to see the ocean from upstairs added to the relaxation factor. The beach was easily accessible even with all of our gear, and we were there every morning. An afternoon swim in the pool was an added feature which all agreed was a definite PLUS. The kitchen was well equipped as was the entire house! We loved it!"

"The house was nicely decorated and overall very comfortable with all the essentials of home. Everyone in our group shared mostly positive feedback about the house and we all agreed that we would recommend the rental to others. The best part of the house was the proximity to the beach access which was very close, and we also loved the beach views from the front deck which was a great place to relax and enjoy morning coffee. The owner allowed us to access the house an hour early so we appreciated him accommodating our request since we were traveling with pets and arrived sooner than expected.
The owner’s communication regarding check-in could have been better. The contract states that, “we will e-mail and call the lock box/key instructions the week prior to the rental date.” However, this did not happen. Once I finally spoke to the owner (the Friday before our Saturday check-in) the instructions were rather simple; however, it was a little frustrating and inconvenient that I had to reach-out to the owner to obtain the check-in instructions rather than him following the process as outlined in his own contract.
We did identify a few issues during our stay, including, 1) ceiling fan in one bedroom was not working; 2) slow drain in master bath sink; 3) glider on front deck broken; 4) numerous deck spindles loose/at least one missing; along with a few other minor maintenance items. We contacted the owner the day we arrived regarding the ceiling fan and his response was unexpected. Rather than apologizing for the inconvenience or offering a solution at that time, he instead exclaimed that the VRBO listing did not show ceiling fans as an amenity of the home and therefore he would not be replacing the fan if it was broken. I requested that he send someone out to take a look at the fan, and he said that it would not be until at least Monday since it was the weekend. He did call back and suggested that there may be a fan in the utility room that we could use in the meantime, but we were not able to locate one. Instead, we went to the local Walgreens and bought a fan for the couple to use in that room and then notified the owner to cancel the repair man request. Because of the owner’s surprising response regarding the broken ceiling fan, I was reluctant to contact him regarding any of the other issues noted.
Overall, everyone in our group had a GREAT time, we ENJOYED the home and its location, and we LOVED Holden Beach and all its local charm."

"Awesome location, Great Beach, well stocked kitchen for preparing meals, plenty of entertainment if you have to be inside and Holden Beach is nice. Provisions Restaurant on the Waterway for seafood and THE Purple Onion in Shallotte for breakfast and bakery. Very nice owner. Would definitely stay there again. 14 adults and a 3 year old, Plenty of room."

"this was the perfect beach house for our family vacation! We loved getting up every morning and jumping in the pool first thing! Coffee/Vino on the front porch was so relaxing, kitchen had everything we could possibly need, easy access to the beach, beautifully decorated, great internet access, games, toys for the pool and the beach! Just a cute and comfortable house all around! House and pool were very clean and everything felt very welcoming!
Leigh was a pleasure to work with on all the details of booking!"
