Why John chose Southern Coast

We have owned property on Holden Beach for over 15 years. It is a true family beach without all the tourist trappings and flashing signs of other vacation areas. The commercial action is available 45 minutes away if you want a taste of shows, outlets, and all manner of cruising vehicles, but Holden Beach is the place to enjoy the quiet luxury of an uncluttered beach.

What makes this house unique

Beach, beach, and more beach, then feet up and a cocktail looking at the sunset.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"First off, this house was great. It was very accommodating for a small family. My wife, 2 year old daughter, and brother in law stayed here for a week and were very impressed with the property. I had at first been on the fence about getting a house on the second row as I wanted something essentially beachside. This house is only about 600+ feet to the beach with private access right across the street. I had to go back from the beach several times for things we forgot at the property and it was no issue to go to the house and back in about 5 minutes or so. I also love the gated Holden West area it is located in. Very quiet and relaxing. The beach was significantly less crowded on the west end. Summer Manor is an excellent starting point to run down to the west point end in the early morning, which is a little over 2 miles there and back. This was a great place to stay and introduce my daughter to the beach I have been coming back to since the 80's. I'd have no issue staying here again."

Wonderful Stay at Holden Beach

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this house several times because it has all the things that make a beach stay great! The kitchen has everything you need to cook anything you want. . .plenty of sizes of pans and skillets plus lots of storage bins for leftovers! Regular coffee maker plus a Kerig for making single cups! This house is located just a few feet from the beach access so it is super convenient to the beach for a day in the sun. There are beach chairs provided as well. The outdoor shower is nice for cleaning up the sand before going up! It has two great porches for great views of either the ocean out front or the canal outback. The screened in porch on the back is a nice place to sit with a book and a glass of wine after a day of sun and fun! We will definitely being coming back to this house! Great spring break place!!!

Very comfortable, well stocked home with easy beach access!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this house last month! Home is very open and spacious, with a large living area and kitchen. Was very comfortable for two families with young children. The whole house is well stocked with everything you might need (you bring your own towels); the kitchen in particular was well stocked with nice stuff- which is not always the case with beach houses. Nice amount of furniture in the common room also. Plenty of places for people to sit, without feeling over crowded or cramped. Access to the beach is pretty much right across the street, which was great with little kids. The Inter Coastal Waterway is right behind you and the sunsets were amazing. The house is far down the island in a gated community, which is nice- there was less through traffic. All-in-all a great house, especially for families with young kids or groups of adults. Highly recommend!

Beautiful beach house

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd time staying in Summer Manor for our family vacation to Holden Beach! We love the location of this house - right across the street from the beach access, quiet end of Holden with very little traffic and a beautiful view from any of the porches! The house is well stocked to cook meals, comfortable furniture for lounging around after a day on the beach and nice tv to watch the World Cup or Wimbledon! We used the corn hole game several evenings for fun after dinner and enjoyed the rocking chairs on the front porch each morning! This house is the perfect vacation house for a family and has plenty of space for everyone to spread out and enjoy! It was extremely clean and well taken care of! We would recommend this house to anyone wanting a beautiful spot on a quiet part of a wonderful beach!

Great house for a beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a wonderful area of Holden Beach. The west is is much less crowded than the east! Beach access was just a few steps down the road. The house is comfortable and well stocked with kitchen things for cooking at home after a long day on the beach! Rockers on the front porch are a nice touch for sitting and sipping coffee or evening cocktails!! We have stayed here before and will always try to use this house again! All the pleasures of home with a gorgeous view!!!

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

We had great weather and the beach was wonderful. Sand great for walking-firm. The house was comfortable for all. I really only have one negative to mention. That is they do not include towels. I have rented many beach houses and never had to furnish towels. Also surprised that not even a partial roll of toilet paper left in house! Really??

Owner's Response: I am glad to hear that the house was comfortable for your family, but I am sorry that you were disappointed that towels were not included. We highlight that bed linens (no towels) are in included in all rates - both in the VRBO listing details as well as in the response to the inquiry. The cleaners normally leave one new roll of toilet paper in the house after they complete the cleaning prior to check-in. I apologize that this was not done in your case. I hope you enjoy the balance of the summer! John
