About The Owner

The owners grew up 60 miles from Myrtle Beach but prefer the quietude and overall family atmosphere of Holden Beach.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why The Owner chose Holden Beach

The wife's grandfather acquired the house in 1954 shortly after Hurricane Hazel had ravaged the area. Built in the late forties, the house is quality construction and marked by the caring and love of multiple generations.

What makes this house unique

The Crowd In represents spaces for connecting -- whether the hours spent sharing in the rocking chairs and the swing on the front porch; the mealtimes and games shared around the table; or even the prep and cleanup of meals in the well-equipped kitchen.

This is the perfect beach house! The view is amazing and the little dirt road in front is perfect for bike riding. My family enjoyed our stay so much we can't wait to book for next year!

Great location and fully equipped

  • 5 of 5

This little beach house has a great location to the beach. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch watching the waves and feeling the ocean breezes. Very convenient location to an uncrowded part of Holden Beach. Fully equipped with plenty of cookware, dishes, etc. Boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, and sand toys galore. An outside shower for easy rinsing after swimming. Older furnishings, but very comfortable. Owner is responsive and easy to deal with. We spent a great week at the beach and plan to visit this house next summer!

A slice of rustic beach paradise at a quiet end of the beach

  • 5 of 5

Many visits to Holden Beach and love to stay at the quieter east end. First time at The Crowd Inn, for a relaxing weekend with friends, and it was great. The house is as described, older, rustic, furnished well, and comfortable. No need to bring much for the kitchen, reading, games, beach equipment, all there. Great outdoor shower, great porch, great view, great beach! Communication with host was very good. I will definitely try to get this house first for future visits!

Lovely 'old school' beachhouse

  • 4 of 5

Warren was a pleasure to work with - flexible, easy to contact, and kind.

If you're seeking an affordable, 'old school' energy oceanfront home, this is it! I hope to return again someday.

Thanks, Warren!

Beautiful, easy-living, home … plus ocean and beach

  • 5 of 5

Our whole weekend — regrettably short — was wonderful. We made it to the Friday night wine tasting at the art gallery, the oyster festival on Ocean Isle, and several restaurants. We made breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. And, mostly, we moved from sand to water and back again, at dawn, midday, dusk, and in moonlight.

This is a home, and is lovely. Instructions were clear, the space was clean and perfect, and notes re: neighbors were thoughtful and helpful.

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th stay at the Crowd Inn. Our family comes to Holden Beach every year. My grandchildren love the beach and my son goes on one of the Fishing Charters. It is a great home and the owners are great to work with. We love the big porch with all the rockers and the swing. It's just a few steps from the ocean. We plan to come again in 2017. Thanks again Warren for a great week.
