Are you looking for a fun family vacation home with the surf and sand at your door step? Then this wonderful OCEANFRONT duplex is for you! This is a newly renovated up/down duplex allowing for the preferred convenience of one level living, with this top level unit having 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Rent this unit, or for the perfect large family gathering, combine this unit with our other lower unit, VRBO #474865 listing, for a total of 8 BEDROOMS.

There are five TVs, and 50 mbps WiFi! The living room has a large flat screen TV with premium cable service and a DVD (Blu Ray) player. Each bedroom has a flat screen TV streaming Netflix. The kids and teenagers will enjoy the bunk/futon bedroom configuration, especially when they can retreat to their own room which also has a DVD (Blue Ray) player.

This unit has a full length front deck with marsh views, and a full length oceanfront back deck, so you can enjoy all that Holden Beach has to offer. A boardwalk right from your back deck takes you over the dunes to the ocean’s edge. You can also relax in the open air ground level common area where you will find casual wicker furniture and a charcoal grill. There are also two bicycles, boogie boards, and other beach activities to keep you busy. ENJOY!

Great week!😊👍

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful week. Robert, the owner, was responsive to any and all my questions and our interactions were smooth and congenial. The house had all we needed for a relaxing week and just the right laid back vibe with furniture, fixtures, etc. The house's location couldn't be better, oceanfront and about midway down the beach from the bridge. My husband isn't a big beach lover, and he's ready to make a return visit -- it was that nice. Thanks so much!

This home has lower and upper unites, owned by Robert. We chose the upper unit and loved it. This is the cleanest and well appointed home we have rented in all the years we have been visiting Holden Beach. The location is mid island , has a great beach and walking on the sidewalks or beach is great. Robert is a fantastic owner and makes clients feel like family. Now ,one has to understand, our unit , being a second story unit, one has to climb four (4) sets of stairs, not at all unusual for a beach home. We will be back as time allows and renovations may be in the future for this great home in the off season, to make it even more fantastic. My only suggestion would be to install a king size bed in a bedroom. All else is fantastic.

Thank you Robert for a wonderful facility and great communications with us.

Fantastic Experience!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't speak highly enough of this property. We rented the upper level of the duplex. We found the place to be exceptionally clean, the kitchen was well-furnished, and the view from the back deck is brilliant. Not only did the owner have a bottle of wine waiting on us at arrival, but his availability mid-week for any and all questions exuded the best kind of customer service. Initially we had concerns about renting a duplex thinking that either the downstairs neighbor might be noisy or that we might intrude on our neighbors. However, this proved to be a non-issue. The stay was everything we hoped it would be and we can't recommend it enough.

Great House and Awesome Owner

  • 5 of 5

After several years of renting through a realty company, I decided to try a direct to the owner rental. We couldn't have been more pleased. Robert, the owner, greeted us with a bottle of wine, and then went back to putting together new beach bikes that the grandchildren used and loved! Robert encouraged us to call him if we had any questions or problems during our stay-we didn't need to call! Everything was perfect! The house is well-stocked and very clean. The AC cools extremely well. The kids loved the Netflix in each room. The furniture is clean, ample and very comfortable. There was enough seating for all of us on the seaside deck and I wondered if Robert planned that because there were just enough rocking chairs for our family's (with a few extra side chairs in a corner for any beachy new friends the kids made.) This house is a top over bottom duplex and we stayed on top, which uniquely has its own steps leading down to the common beach walkway. We never heard a peep from downstairs. We did meet the nice people who were staying on bottom floor and, as an aside, we watched two beautiful 17 year old high school seniors become fast friends and plan to meet over fall break to continue their sweet crush on one another at the end of the week. Sigh... only time will tell..... Thank you, Robert, for our best year ever at Holden Beach. The beach behind the house was perfect, sloped just right for our 5 year old grandson--no sudden drop offs! We highly recommend this house as a prime vacation spot on the beach and it was priced just right for our retirement budget! We all agreed to stay in this house next year, and the 2 teenagers from the two separate floors are insisting both families coordinate our beach week dates. A sweet story for a sweet vacation house.

Great stay - Oceanfront and can not beat the value

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay here. We had a great week, we stayed on the top floor. Our sons are (twins 5 and 3). Owner has the kitchen stocked with all utensils. Unit was clean when we arrived. Lots of puzzles, books and stuffed animals in bunk beds. Lots of toys and two bikes in storage closet downstairs. Great to go out and have a meal or enjoy the ocean breeze on front deck and also has back deck. Each tv in bedroom has Netflix so easy to appease each child. One downfall was the lack of beach at high tide. Not the owners fault but may be problem at busy season. The price for the week was very reasonable and owner is always very prompt if we had any questions on things with the house. We went to the ice cream shop near the pier and recommend The Provision Company right over the bridge. Nothing fancy but good food and laid back atmosphere as you watch boats come down the ICW. We had a great time here and would come back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review - it was great to have you back, and I am glad you had a great stay. You are right about the laid back atmosphere - Holden Beach in general is terrific for that. It's amazing to see beaches change - with two storms last year (2015) there was some erosion along the beach up to the dunes, but the good thing with Holden Beach is that they already have a plan to replenish lost sand - this seems to be a regular thing with beaches. Looking forward to your next visit.
