About the property

RESERVE FOR 2017! OCEANFRONT 4 Bdrms, 3.5 Ba plus Flex room with sofa bed. POOL!

Pool will open March 25, 2017 thru October 2017.

Pool can be heated for a $300 surcharge.


Welcome to Kindred Spirit, our well appointed, oceanfront 4 bdrm/3.5 bath home. Our home is family friendly and has an inverted floor plan, where the majority of bedrooms (3) are on the “first floor” but the living/dining/kitchen area and one master bedroom is “upstairs”. This way where you spend the majority of your day when inside you are viewing the ocean.

For 14 rental seasons the recurring theme in our guest book “comments” and online reviews (50+) from guests over and over is "the house had everything we needed and more!"

Kindred Spirit is a located just steps from the island's grocery, beachfront ice cream shop, and fishing pier/pier restaurant.

Amenities include a 51" Plasma HDTV with Apple TV and Netflix, books, game system with games, board games, a charcoal grill, outdoor shower (hot & cold water), beach toys, boogie boards and beach chairs and bocce ball set.

For families with babies and small children, Kindred Spirit is also equipped with a Pack n' Play, high chair, booster seat, changing table, and a baby gate (if needed) at the top of the stairs.

Each bedroom is uniquely furnished with ceiling fan and wall mounted TV with cable.

The "flex" room can function as a fifth bedroom (queen sofa bed), or a second den. The "flex" room also has a HDTV and an Xbox with games.

There are four covered porches with rocking and lounge chairs that draw you out to relax and enjoy ocean breezes, sunsets and views of Holden Beach.

Directly off of the rear porch, an in-ground 26’ x 12’ saltwater pool (heating optional with surcharge) with surrounding deck awaits your family or group. Leave the pool area to use your private walkway to the beach, where you will make fantastic vacation memories.

We hope the above description lets you see Kindred Spirit is made for the generational family group from infants to grandparents!

Oceanfront is Convenient!! No lugging chairs, umbrellas, toys and coolers blocks to the beach when you stay oceanfront.

Please if the week you are hoping to book is taken, check 'Changes In Latitude' (VRBO # 370011) next door.

About Debbie

Having grown up in San Diego, Ca, I was amazed when i moved to the east coast how warm the water was during the summer and fall! While I still miss San Diego,(left in 1975) I have learned to enjoy the east coast ocean water temperatures!

Debbie purchased this house in 2003

Why Debbie chose Southern Coast

Holden Beach is a quiet family beach. IF i were to want other non water activities, I can drive 45 minutes north to Wilmington NC or 45 minutes south to N. Myrtle Beach and find a lot of activities. That's not why I go to the beach though, but rather to sit on a chair, with a book and my feet in the water, all day long. Holden Beach has the quiet I enjoy. We also have a saltwater in ground pool, great porches to watch sunsets or relax. House is very well equipped, meaning you have to pack less. Ask me about our property!

What makes this house unique

Holden is a turtle sanctuary and has an active turtle patrol. They give"turtle" talks once/ week for the vacationers during the summer, and every year they watch for the turtle hatchings and help protect and count them. I think this is a highlight any time a guest has the opportunity to witness this for themselves.

Perfect family vacation house

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend this house enough. It was absolutely perfect for our needs.

The house is really well equipped and in really good condition. We stayed there for two weeks in late May/early June and the weather was great. We used the heated pool everyday with our young kids and played on the beach in the afternoons. The landlord is super nice and will help with any issue whatsoever. We will definitely come back!!!

A great place to stay at Holden Beach

  • 4 of 5

This is a well maintained ocean front house with pool. Open, spacious upper level main living area. Second den on middle level is a nice feature. Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, lots of comfortable seating both inside and outside. Adjacent to pier. Homeowner and manager responded quickly to all our questions and issues. Kindred Spirit provided a nice vacation retreat for our family.

The house was well equipped especially for children.

Carpet was worn and furniture was worn, but with time this will happen.

Close to beach and pool was great.

Grill very small and old

New washer and dryer which was very efficient.

Nice beach and pool items provided.

"Palmetto" bugs a problem on first floor and pool deck.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you felt the furniture was worn, the den furniture is actually relatively new, I believe this was the 3rd season for the den furniture and maybe the 2nd for the dining table. By the time of your stay in the summer, (August) the carpet which is also fairly new(3-4 years) has had it share of spills and I know it had spots which were cleaned as soon as we had a break in continuous weeks booked. Thanks for coming to Kindred Spirit!

Wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us stayed at this beach house and had a wonderful time. The house is very well decorated and rooms a good size. My grandchildren loved the pool and the beach. I loved the porches with rocking chairs as I sat and relaxed watching the ocean. Kitchen is very well stocked with open space looking into dining area and den. Debbie and her husband were great to work with. I would recommend this house!

Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation to Holden Beach! Kindred Spirit is a beautiful home. It was very clean and well stocked. You can't beat the location either! Loved the private pool steps away from the beach. Convenent walking to the General Store, pier, and ice cream shop. We were a little nervous when we saw there was a camping area directly next door, however, did not have an issue at all with noise.

We had an issue with the pool becoming green and cloudy. We notified the owner who immediately took care of it. Our only complaints are the refrigerator does not get very cold and the grill was a mess and the charcoal was all over the ground when we arrived.

Overall, I highly recommend Kindred Spirit for your next vacation. We definitely plan on staying there again!

There's nothing different I can say about this place. As everyone else has stated, this home is just beautiful. Pictures don't do it justice. Debbie was so great to work with as well. Everyone talks about how well stocked this kitchen is, but I have 2 requests: a griddle pan (we had to cook pancakes in the frying pan) and more storage containers (for leftovers or cut up fruit etc). Other than that, the kitchen was definitely well stocked. There were plenty of beach toys in the closet as well. Along with round pool floats, boogie boards, etc. It was very clean. We met a couple of the cleaning ladies as we arrived and they were SO VERY PLEASANT and they did a great job. This was our first visit to Holden Beach and I certainly hope it's not our last. Thank you, Debbie, for opening your home to us!

Owner's Response: I just have to respond! :-) The "cleaning ladies" bragged on you also! They texted me to tell me you had even emptied the dishwasher before you left. *Good point on the pancake griddle, I envisioned pancakes being done in that fry pan "griddle" surface but you are right. *Re: plastic ware for storage. May & June guests before you must have taken food in storage containers home because there is usually lots of "tupperware" (i generically call it.) Then in addition guests leave disposable plastic ware they brought. So must have been 2 months of outgoing and none being left in addition to what the summer started with, thanks for bringing to my attention! Glad you had a great week! Please come again! Tell your family and friends about #369802 and book next years trip!
