About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

'Tip Toe Inn' located at 330 Ocean Blvd. West

Bargain does not mean compromise. Count 40 steps to the ocean, where you can toss your worries to the salty, sea breezes, and enjoy a fabulous view of the Atlantic Ocean. Imagine relaxing on the front porch of this second-row beach house get-away, located directly across the street from easy beach access and one mile from the pavilion and bridge.

You will feel completely at home! The fully supplied kitchen will enable you to prepare meals for your family when you are not up to dining out. The great room features a cable television,DVD, as well as a stereo and CD player; so bring along your favorite movies and CD's to keep the kids entertained!

Four bedrooms have two queen beds, one double bed, and two twin beds. Two full, exceptionally clean bathrooms make getting ready for day, or night, easy. The house also features a central air conditioning and heat, two-car garage, washer and dryer, and an outdoor hot/cold shower.

Holden Beach has a restful feeling, perfect for families longing to relax on the white, sandy beach, swimming, walking, shelling, and sandcastle building. Or you can fish from the shore or pier. Concrete sidewalks which line Ocean Boulevard make visitors to Holden Beach feel safe while strolling, jogging, or biking up and down the main street.

Local restaurants serving up the freshest seafood, putt-putt, waterslide, bumper boats, go-karts, amusements, and golf driving range are only minutes away across the causeway. The nearby pavilion provides entertainment for teens.

If it is golf you are looking for, there are 37 golf courses in Brunswick County, ten to thirty minutes away. For boaters, there are two nearby marinas, offering easy access to the intercoastal waterway.

Holden Beach, North Carolina is located just 35 minutes from the bright lights and hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. You can have the best of both worlds, cruising the strip, shopping the outlets, or dancing the night away at the clubs of Myrtle Beach, or spending quiet days and nights relaxing in Holden Beach's family atmosphere.

You may wish to spend a day touring historic Wilmington, North Carolina, which is also 35 minutes away. On the way, be sure to take the ferry from Southport and visit the Fort Fisher Civil War Museum and the Fort Fisher Aquarium.

So come and enjoy some southern hospitality and make vacation memories that will last a lifetime!

Why The Owner chose Holden Beach

We purchased this wonderful beachhouse because it was on a wonderful family beach. We loved the four bedroom, which would be perfect for two families on vacation and of course, the proximity to the beach was ideal. You can see the beach...smell the beach... and hear the beach!!

Family vacation

Absolutely loved staying here, loved the short walk to the beach. Everything was perfect. Ocean views from the house. Definitely want to stay here when we return next year. Lots of room. Dawn is very nice and helpful with booking.

Making Memories

  • 4 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay at Holden Beach. The house fit our needs and was comfortable. We was not sure we could go two weeks without WIFI but actually really did not mind. We had more time to socialize with each other. The short walk to the beach was awesome when trying to take small children and beach items to the beach. The house was very clean and the owner actually called half way through our stay to see if we wanted the cleaning lady to come clean for us. She was very helpful before, during, and after our stay. Everything you need was within driving distance. I look forward to another trip to Holden Beach to make more memories!

Our second stay!😊

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay at Tip Toe Inn. When we arrived the house was very clean and we noticed had been updated with a new tv, new rugs and bed comforters.

The grill outside came in very handy in the evenings. We absolutely loved the new rocking chairs on the deck!!!

This house is nothing fancy, but cozy and simple. Has great access to the beach, just right across the road.

I would've gave 5 stars, but didn't because we had no wi-fi.

We will most likely stay here again!

We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our group! We had a blast. The house is a great value for the price and Dawn is excellent to work with. She made our vacation planning a breeze. I would recommend this place, but if you are going for fancy furnishings, this isn't the place for you. I'm not saying that it wasn't nice. I'm just saying that it is not a palace, it's a beach house. If you want a fancy, over-priced house, this is not for you. But if instead you want a place to sleep, eat and enjoy the beach, this is for you! It's close proximity to the beach, the great deck and Holden Beach itself is a really neat beach. It's not over commercialized, it's quiet, close enough to attractions if you want to do that. The only thing I would change is the lack of wifi access. Our phones would barely work at all, that is my only criticism.

Not as expected

  • 2 of 5

This was our second time in Holden Beach (two different rentals, but same price class). Great place for a quiet family vacation. Property has a good location and 2 newer bathrooms. The rest of the house seems in rather poor condition and not well maintained. Everything is very old and not in great condition. The cleaning was clearly a rash job (dirty dish in oven, stuff under the beds, dirty bed spread). The one recliner in the living room was very old and dirty, the outside table was broken, very discolored and old. Not very comfortable area for eating - and not for 8 people. There is no outdoor space for children (and no shaded area - table and umbrella were broken).

We did not use the grill because it was so dirty. Deck has no shade. Would not stay there again. The property was described as newly renovated - don't want to know what it looked like before the renovation.

Owner's Response: The renters that rented for the week of May 31 never expressed any concerns regarding there stay. Nine month later the above comment was posted. I contacted the renters after this post was left. The renter said that the house was great. However, it was a bit cramped for ten people. ( note...our stated renter capacity is eight. The renter said he had no idea why this comment was posted.

Wonderful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visited Holden Beach for the first time and were extremely

pleased with our whole experience. Dawn was a huge part of this - she made

the entire rental process easy and pleasant. The house is great and in a great

location. We will certainly recommend this house to others. We most certainly hope to return for more visits.
