  • Family Vacation

    "My family (6 of us including 4 teenagers) stayed a week at the condo at Winding River. It was perfect for us. We would drive to the Beach House (15 minutes away, free parking, great pool and beach) and stay for 3-4 hours. Then in the mid-afternoon and evenings we golfed at the Carolina National Golf Course (has great deals after 2 pm for a family), spent time at the pool which is just a minute walk from condo, shopped, went out to eat, walked the neighborhood or went over to the River House to watch the sunset (within the Winding River Complex). We would select this location again (even over staying directly on the beach). The condo itself was lovely and had plenty of room for our family. The Winding River community is absolutely beautiful; it has so much to offer. The rental price for a week stay was a real bargain."

  • Great Get Together

    "Great house right on the beach near the pier. House is very clean, well equipped and open enough that no one feels cramped. The two ocean front covered decks make it nice to spend time outside regardless of the weather. The owners are very helpful in case you have never been to the area. For a very casual dining experience don't miss going to Provision's."

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.
