Overview

About the property

Bedrooms 3, Bathrooms 3, Sleeps 10

THE LOCATION is Holden Beach NC, the perfect spot to enjoy a coastal vacation. With its white, sandy beaches and beautiful sunsets, it is no surprise that Holden was voted one of America’s top 10 family beaches. The front and back decks on both levels guarantee nice views of the Inter-coastal Waterway. What makes this property even more special is the private dock. You can go fishing right off your 12 x 12 dock, or bring your boat; there is a quick entrance to the Inter-coastal. This house is about a 10 minute walk to the public beach access located at the end of Dolphin Dr.

THE SPACE consists of 2000 sq. feet of living area utilizing an inverted floor plan. It is tastefully decorated with a soothing, neutral palette. The first floor has 2 bedrooms, one of which is a master with private bath and custom shower. The second bedroom has two sets of bunk beds and connects to a full bath on this floor. The second floor bedroom has a queen bed and bathroom shared with the main living area. This house can comfortably accommodate 10 guests. An elevator makes this house handicap friendly. Guests will appreciate the low allergen environment as neither pets nor smoking is permitted.

THE AMENITIES are many, beginning with covered parking and lighting. The addition of a wet bar on the 2nd floor adds more convenience as does the outdoor shower. It gets even better: Included is a 6-8 person HOT TUB! Smart TVs are also in the main areas on both floors.

PROPERTY DETAILS:First Floor: a master bedroom with a king bed including a private bath with custom shower, additional bedroom with 2 sets of bunks accompanied by a full bathroom with tub/shower combo, and a pull out queen sofa located in the denSecond Floor: bedroom with queen bed and shared bath for floor

We rented Sand Happens in Holden Beach for the week leading up to the busy Memorial Day weekend. It was just what we were looking for... quiet, family friendly beaches and not a lot of activity. The house was spotless and every amenity was at our fingertips. With 4 little ones, we were very thankful for the fenced in yard. It helped keep mommy from going completely insane. We will definitely rent again! Thank you for sharing your beautiful property with us. - The Smaldone Family from Facebook

Sand Happens was the perfect venue for our active family, including the hotly contested corn hole games, surrounded by our favorite music emanating from the TIKI bar sound system and the cold beverages flowing from the Tiki bar. We enjoyed the newness of the home including the indoor wet bar. Overall a great time was had by all. The attention to detail was evident, everything from the stuffed sea creatures in the children's bunk room to the ice maker. Thanks Stellar Beach, See you next year. - Charles L. from VRBO

Wonderful Retreat for a Golf Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Each year a group of our close friends reunite in the Carolinas for a golf getaway. Sand Happens is the perfect retreat to host us! The common area is a great space to keep those cooking in the kitchen close to those relaxing by the tv. The house is spacious yet still small enough to be cozy & inviting. The ice machine was a great luxury to have which we used to pack coolers for the day! And the bunk beds provided so much room for activities. When meeting neighbors on the street, I felt privileged to tell them which house was mine for the weekend. Overall, a great place to stay and I highly recommend it for a large group.

Sand Happens is a very attractive home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Sand Happens and have always loved Holden Beach. The dock area was very well kept and offered many areas for relaxing. Since we brought our own boat, it was nice to be so close to the intracoastal for fishing and evening boat outings. Our group consisted of three couples who enjoy cooking our own meals with fresh seafood readily available in the area. However the kitchen area, aside from being roomy and very clean, could use a few serving dishes, more silverware and a wider selection of glass dishes for baking. Bedrooms were nicely decorated but light on storage space for clothing, especially if you are there for a week. Living area and kitchen area were very roomy and comfortable. We really enjoyed the small bar setup, which offered lots of room for keeping beverages, and the ice maker was a plus! Will we stay here again? We might.

Beautiful vacation home !! Everything we needed to assure a great long week end getaway !

  • 5 of 5

Yes , I must say the home was just perfect for our family ! The elevator was truly a godsend due to my husbands pulmonary and heart condition ! The extra ice machine also a very nice extra help to our thirsty bunch !! The beds were also very comfortable and we enjoyed the additional extra comfort of the Hot Tub ! We really enjoyed the home , beautiful views and just a short walk to the beach ! This was a special Birthday treat for my twin grandson and granddaughter on their 14th Birthday and my husbands 71st Birthday !

My son took his small boat so that the twins could do some tubing and it was nice to be able to tie up to the floating dock ! The Boat Lift had a boat stationed on it but we had plenty of room !! Thank you for thinking about your guest and all the personable touches you put in place to create such an awesome rental property !

I would definitely recommend this spacious canal home to anyone that has an interest in obtaining a beautiful beach rental in the lovely family oriented Holden Beach , NC

Sincerely ,

The Pittman Family

Excellent home for entertaining & water sports.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations for sleeping, preparing foods, eating, relaxing, playing games, and enjoying the beach and canal were outstanding. The great room bar with its ice maker was a tremendous help. Everyone enjoyed the corn hole game, and especially the availability of kayaks and a paddle board for canal use. Having an outdoor grill was a special treat. There are many extras to make staying in this home a joy.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The property was in great shape and in a good location. The transaction and communication with the owners was efficient and professional.

I think the thing that stood out the most, though, was the little extras. They had a solid selection of cooking utensils/appliances that usually you don't find, but come in quite handy. They had a hose hooked up outside that would reach the dock, which made it easy to spray down our boat once while it was in the water. The tv on the first floor had an extra hdmi cable connected in case you wanted to run something to it, which we did (we brought a roku). None of that stuff is a big deal in and of itself, but it adds up to a place that functions better and makes the trip that much more enjoyable.

There was also a hot tub, and an ice maker, which were bonuses.

We'd definitely stay there again.
