Oceanfront 4 Bedroom, 5 Bathroom, Handicap Equipped Vacation Home
The Tern Inn is the perfect way to spend your vacation with family or friends.
This beautiful, pet-friendly, 2-story home was created with your family and friends in mind. We have a custom-made, ten foot dining table that easily seats 14, two separate sitting rooms with cable television and DVD players and private baths attached to each of the four bedrooms. We have over 35 windows that offer beautiful views of the ocean or Intracoastal Waterway so you can relax and enjoy the view from anywhere in the house.
We are also one of the few handicap equipped homes on the island with an elevator for easy accessibility and a full-size handicap bathroom with fully equipped shower.
You will fall instantly in love with rocking in the chairs on the back deck while taking in the breathtaking views of the ocean that have made Holden Beach one of the most popular family beaches around.
We have stocked our home to help you forget about the busyness of life and fall in love with kicking off your shoes and getting back in touch with fun and relaxation. We offer a library of books for your vacation reading downtime and boogie boards & sand toys for the kids (ok, the adults too). You can even come straight off the beach to the private outdoor shower and picnic area on the ground floor.
We love our beach house and we think you will too. For larger families or groups, consider renting our additional oceanfront property 'Sandcastle' (VRBO # 442909) next door.

Great time, great place!
Despite the weather, we had a great time thanks to this spacious and cozy home with beautiful views to the beach.
Could not have been more pleased.
Beautiful, clean, roomy, well appointed are some of the adjectives that come to mind. Felt well prepared about what to expect i.e. beach rules and amenities thanks to Debbie's timely contacts.
Beautiful beach house
This was our first stay on Holden Beach and we couldn't ask for a nicer beach house. It was spacious and beautifully decorated and we greatly appreciated that it was dog friendly since we travel everywhere with our two dogs. The house had everything we needed for a great week. The owner was also very pleasant and seemed genuinely interested in making sure we were comfortable. We will be back!
Quiet beach week perfection
We loved our stay at Holden! It was so beautiful and relaxing with ocean views and sounds. The house was spacious and beautiful and also had what we needed with full wheelchair accessibility for my grandmother. The owner was quick to field our questions and give recommendations. Fantasy isle ice cream and provision company were delicious suggestions! Loved our stay and hope to come again someday!
A great house
I've been staying at Holden Beach every year for about 15 years, this was our first experience using VRBO. Debbie made booking, paying and arrival/check in very easy. The house is great -- again, I've stayed in a lot of ocean front houses and this house is in excellent condition and extremely well equipped. It's particularly well suited to a large family. All the rooms were spacious and very comfortable. And while I'm not much of a tv-watcher when I'm at the beach, I know members of our group took advantage of having flat screen tvs in every bedroom. We loved riding the bikes (again, in great condition) and appreciated the extra beach gear in the storage room. Even the rocking chairs on the deck were better than what you would normally find -- everyone kept talking about how comfortable they were! My only criticism would be that the price was significantly higher than we typically have paid for other ocean front properties, but given the fact that every single thing about the house was perfect, and it has a lot of amenities you don't find at other properties, I suppose you get what you pay for.
Beautiful house with great accommodations. We had a wonderful stay and hope to return to Tern Inn!!
