About the property

OCEANFRONT 4 Bdrms, 3.5 Ba & Private Pool@ Great Location on HB

Pool will stay open hru October 2017 at a minimum.

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 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 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 # 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.

Keywords: Holden Beach, NC, beach house, oceanfront, beach,pool, heated pool, furnished vacation home, multi generational vacation home.

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 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.

Perfect beach vacation home rental experience

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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!

Great overall with a minor hiccup

  • 4 of 5

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!

Great House for a Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful experience at Kindred Spirit. It was the perfect place for our family of 10 to come together and visit for a week. The pool was nice for the little kids that we didn't want swimming in the ocean. The ocean was so close for the bigger kids to boogie board and swim. The 2 outdoor showers were great for not spreading sand everywhere too. The general store and swim shop were conveniently located to the house next to us...as well as the ice cream shop. The views from the porches were amazing. The kitchen was laid out nicely with a big working island and large pantry. It also was well stocked for cooking large family dinners. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay and will probably be visiting again next year. The town is also very quaint and laid back. Perfect for a week of relaxation....

I stayed at this house with three generations of our family. Everyone had a fun and relaxing vacation. Between the pool and beach and all the wonderful porches everyone had fun. We have already booked our vacation here for next year!

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!
