Recent Holden Beach reviews
"Being beach lovers, the easy access to the ocean was a HUGE selling point for the house. This was our first time to Holden Beach and we are so glad we came!
The sand at the beach is delightful...super soft, white sand, with still lots of shells to be found. The beach was never crowded and super family friendly. We had great luck fishing from the beach, wonderful waves for boogie boards, and the water was pleasantly warm all week. There is a general store just up from the house where you can get bait and other basic needs, super convenient. The neighborhood for this house was really quiet, neighbors very friendly.
We are boaters so having the house on the canal was a BIG selling feature. It is super tidal there so be aware of that. We would not have been about to launch or dock at low tide with our boat but that was not a problem. We have a 23 foot Sea Doo Wake Edition so with the jet engines we only need about 18 inches to float but that risks sucking up mud running. For us, it was under 2 feet at the dock edge. But a few hours on either side of low tide was fine. There are great restaurants on the water on the Intracoastal...we went north one day up to top end of Oak Island and another day we went south all the way into northern Myrtle Beach...great cruising water!
The town of Holden Beach has some great local shops, a Food Lion, and some restaurants. If you need anything closer or bigger like a Wal-Mart there is one only 20 minutes away...they also have a movie theater near the Wal-Mart we went to one night...easy drive. The funnest part for our kids was driving over the bridge that spans the Intracoastal...crazy high! The best feature of the house though is the deck overlooking the marsh...seeing the sun set there and the week were there Jupiter was shining bright in the early night sky...amazing views!
The house is super comfortable, clean, well kept, kitchen well stocked...just as advertised. That's not always the case but it certainly was here...so appreciate the owners working so hard to make other people's vacations memorable! They were easy to contact, super knowledgeable about the area, responsive and timely with booking and such! This house is an amazing value...don't miss out!"

"The home was beautiful and very comfortable. We have a large family and everyone was able to have their own space. The kitchen and living room were open and sunshiny! We loved the floor plan which allowed the kids their own floor. This house is located on the canal so we were able to enjoy swimming in it with the friendly local neighbors. The street is very family friendly and neighbors are careful to watch after one another as children play in the street drawing with chalk or riding their bikes. It is a dead end street so we are able to be on the street without worrying about getting run over. I would absolutely recommend this home for anyone in need of a true relaxing vacation. You will also get your exercise as you go up and down the stairs, which is a good thing as we always eat more than we should on vacation! Built in exercise! Haha....there are 38 stairs from bottom to top."

"What a perfect spot for our family ranging in age from 16 to 80! We all enjoyed having morning coffee on the the new deck and the ramp over the dunes was key to my folks having access to fully enjoy the beach. The sleeping arrangements fit our needs exactly and the beds were very comfortable. It was a treat to have all linens and towels provided. The property owner was a pleasure to work with and we will definitely book again!"

"My three sons, their families and I just returned from Dockside Dreaming. I was a little skeptical after reading some of the reviews about it needing love, but I found nothing in need of major repairs. I was completely happy with this house and we absolutely loved staying there! My 10 year old grandson practically lived on the pier catching crabs, as did the other grandkids, and my sons docked their boat in the canal so it was always accessible to go fishing. The beach was just a few steps away, the pier and a general store are across the street in walking distance when you are out of bread or milk. There was plenty of room with four good sized bedrooms and it was very clean with cable tv, wifi. The best part was the reasonable rate. We will definitely be staying there again!! Thanks for sharing your home with us!"
