OCEANFRONT 4 Bdrms, 3.5 Ba & Private Pool@ Great Location on HB
Pool will open mid April and close at end of October 2018.
Pool can be heated for a $350 **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 15 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, X-box 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 system 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’ 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 of 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 # 1024418) next door. Pretty much the same floor plan with a few minor differences. Changes in Latitude was formerly our home also (formerly VRBO #370011) and the new owners are great to work with.

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! Personally my favorite time at the beach is Sept. & October because the days are less humid and the water is still warm. Our family likes to do Thanksgiving and Christmas at the beach when logistics permit.
Debbie purchased this House in 2003
Why Debbie chose Holden Beach
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 however, 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 private in ground pool (26’ x 12’) and great porches to watch sunrise, sunset or relax. House is very well equipped, meaning our guests have to pack much less!! Ask me about our property! I'd love to tell you more and answer any questions.
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. Summertime also brings Sunday night family concerts under the bridge, all that is required is perhaps a chair and love of music.

Clean home! Great location! Awesome pool!
Very clean and organized! They went the extra mile to make our stay PERFECT. The house is well stocked with a lot of extras. Great location. Close to the pier, the general store, and an ice cream shop.Loved the family atmosphere of the area. They checked on us upon arrival and answered all of our questions throughout the week. They made us feel like family. The heated pool was a huge plus! The beach is beautiful and only steps away!
Wonderful beachfront home!!
Beautiful property just as described! We had a wonderful week and the home was equipped with all essentials needed to enjoy fun for all ages.
Immaculate property that shows both the pride of the owners and their desire to accommodate their guests. Debbie was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. As other reviewers have noted, the house and kitchen are well equipped and I can't think of anything that we would liked to have had that wasn't already there. Drinking morning coffee on the deck, listening and watching the waves, and enjoying the weather made for a great stay.
Once we jumped thru the hoops that VRBO put up for a last minute reservation, I enjoyed the banter we had going via text! I hope your houseguest enjoyed our Carolina coast also, please come again!
Perfect vacation home
This was the best experience our family has ever had with a vacation home!!! The decor was beautiful and was so well equipped. Absolutely go to the house first before you stop at the grocery store - the house had cleaning products in ever bathroom, kitchen and even laundry detergent. There were spices in the kitchen, foil, etc. The owners were very responsive when we had questions. Our family hopes to go back yearly!!!
HI! Thank you for your review, i really appreciate it. You have described what I hope every guest experiences. I try to have what I have at home, and my guests appreciate it. You were so "together" with your calmness at an impeding hurricane (IRMA/ Sept. 2017)and matter of fact attitude, realizing I do not control the weather :-)!
I am glad for us, that Irma did not hit land on the NC Coast but I am so happy that your family trip was able to happen! I heard you all had family pictures done also, would love to hear who you used! Please contact me to hold a 2018 week!
Great overall with a minor hiccup
The location and views from this house are wonderful. The layout inside is nice as well and they really set you up for a wonderful stay. We did have an issue upon arrival where we had dirty sheets and towels waiting for us. We didn't get clean ones until after 9:30 at night. After traveling all day and many in our group wanting to shower or head to bed, we couldn't as we had no towels or sheets yet. Being told "we are busy" just wasn't cutting it when we had reported the issue around 3pm. The owner was aware and admitted she forgot to place the order. She tried to help as much as she could. It was a frustration on day 1, but certainly didn't ruin our trip. This was truly a great place and we would stay again in a heartbeat. I already miss the decks there as we spent a ton of time sitting out there. In fact, on our last day, I sat down on the couch in the family room and realized it was the 1st time I was even in that room all week. Our time was spent on the decks, at the pool and at the beach. The public beach access next to the house made for great people watching. We recommend going to Beaches and Cream, they have the best ice cream. Main Street Grill was good too. Thanks Debbie for some great vacation memories!
Perfect beach vacation home rental experience
From the time we reserved this home until the time we checked out our experience was nothing but 5 star. House, location, attentive owner....everything was spot on. We had three little ones ages 2, 2 1/2 and 5 and the provided extras for them were great, their own table, gate for the staircase, booster seat all were used. The kitchen was well equipped, we made use of the grill several nights and even bought fresh local seafood and did a low country boil one night. God willing, we plan to do it again next year.
Your review brought a smile to my face and pride to my heart. I am picturing your little grandchildren at our "little persons" table.
I am glad your children with their children were able to make some new summer memories at our home in Holden Beach. See you next year!
Holden Beach is a sea turtle sanctuary. Turtle Talk is held every week during the summer for those interested. Sightings of turtle hatchings happen in the summer with the local 'Turtle Patrol' counting nests and hatchings, and protecting the nests. Holden Beach is located in a golf course rich area!

Owner discretion on the $250 fee whether that would be refundable if you hold a week for months prior to January of any given year.
