Recent Holden Beach reviews

  • Wonderful vacation at Jane's Joy!

    "I just got home from a week vacation at Holden Beach and could not wait to write this review! The house was wonderful and Jane was very accommodating. She was very attentive to our needs and responded quickly to any requests. There were 5 couples, 4 toddlers, and a 5 year old in our group and we were very comfortable in this home. A previous review said that the king bed was terrible. My husband and I slept on it and found it to be very comfortable. We also read in that review that the linen situation was unpleasant, so we brought some of our own towels and sheets just in case. When we arrived, we found an abundance of linens. The living/dining/kitchen area is large with amazing views from every window. The wrap around porches were fabulous and had an abundance of seating. The walk over to the beach was very close that we almost felt like we were ocean front and the views definitely made us feel like we were ocean front! The pool was an easy walk and when we didn't want to walk, we just loaded everyone up and were there in two minutes. We also enjoyed the basketball and tennis courts. The house was well stocked and very homey. A previous reviewer complained about the televisions not being flat screens. They are definitely dated, but no one in our group had a problem using them and, seriously, I can watch tv at home! This home was very reasonably priced for what you get. I highly recommend it! Also, Holden Beach is very nice and has some very nice restaurants. We went to Calabash one evening and wished we had stayed at Holden! Two favorites: Mermaids Island Grill(very good lunch) and Main street grill (great breakfast!!!)"

  • Clean and Convenient!

    "The condo was very clean and nicely furnished. The walk to the beach was just as short as some of the oceanfront homes further down the beach. We did not use the pool, but it was a nice size and very well kept. The condo was also close to the bridge, which made trips to local stores and restaurants very convenient. I would definitely rent this condo again in the future!"

  • House with everything

    "We just got back from renting this house and it was wonderful. This was our first trip to Holden but will not be our last. Steve was great to work with as we did a payment plan with him. The house has everything you need. You only need to bring a few clothes. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking. The beds are very comfortable and the house is very clean. Although the weather was not the best; rained a lot, the house has books, games and a covered back area to sit and enjoy the view. We also enjoyed fishing off the dock and even caught a few. We ate at Castaways Raw Bar one night which was downtown near the bridge; great service and great food. We also visited the Ice cream shop on the beach and it was good. Overall this is a great house and we had a great vacation! Highly recommend this house."

  • My favorite vacation ever!!

    "Engagement Vacation! I arrived at Lulu Rose with two agendas. First, to propose to my girlfriend. Second, to relax and enjoy my stay in Holden Beach. I have stayed at several properties in Holden Beach, but this lovely cottage is my favorite. We arrived at Lulu and when we walked inside we were smitten by its beauty and charm. What a wonderful place to spend a vacation! The attention to detail is amazing here. We noticed the wonderful hall tree and hung our coats on it. What a nice touch. The kitchen here is amazing! A cooler to keep wine chilled in was a nice surprise. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need for a wonderful experience. The decor is so warm and relaxing. We ventured into the two bedrooms which were stocked with beautiful linens and the softest towels I have ever seen. The shower is amazing also. The tile is so beautiful I stayed in just a little longer to enjoy the beauty. Now for the second bathroom. That tub!!!! My wife loved it and still talks about it. In case you were wondering...She said yes!!. We had the best sleep on the comfy beds with the softest sheets. The outdoor spa is amazing for a chilly yet clear night to watch the stars under. We got up each day to watch the amazing NC sunrises and were always back before sunset to see the amazing colors of the North Carolina sky from the deck of Lulu Rose. My only regret about the whole trip is that I should of stayed longer!! Evenings spent watching TV in the front room and barbequing down stairs was so fun. The outdoor shower is a special treat. I actually took a few extra showers just to enjoy that. I could spend my whole life in Lulu Rose and be happy. The owners attention to every little detail makes everything special. I cant wait to get back to Holden Beach and stay again. Thank you for creating a wonderful experience for us!"

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.
