Guestbook comments from the manager

Loved the floor plan. The kitchen was large and functional, open to the family room and dining area. I was comfortable cooking there, which saved money and time spent going out to eat for every meal. The bedrooms were perfect for our group. We ended up having an extra couple (my daughter's in-laws!) and there was plenty of privacy for everyone. The upstairs den was also convenient to have a little quiet time. The BEST part was location! The beach was so close, you could run into the cottage for a drink or restroom visit without taking a big chunk of your beach time! We were on the beach every day, so it was more than worth the extra money to be oceanfront. There was adequate parking for three cars, without having to move cars for folks coming and going. You could fit another car or two, but it would probably involve playing musical cars a bit. I think I can speak for all our group when I say, "let's do it again!"

Upon arrival we were very pleased with the house. When we raised the window blinds we were delighted with the view of the ocean and the sandy beach. We had a few questions and requests for PROACTIVE Rentals and true to their name they were very "proactive" and quickly took care of our needs. FYI - We just needed an empty trash barrel to use until the next trash pick-up. The week's weather was lovely until Tropical Storm Hermine rolled through on our last full day in the house. Even the storm proved to be enjoyable as it created a day indoors while watching the ocean churn and the wind blow. Again, PROACTIVE was on the property to turn over all the deck furniture for safety purposes. We were very comfortable. First trip to Holden Beach in 8 years, we love the peaceful low key lifestyle. Thank you!

Great Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

What matters most to my family in a beach house is that it’s clean, has comfortable beds, has furniture that isn’t stained, has a nice porch with rocking chairs and has a separate living area for the kids to play in when they aren’t on the beach. This house had all of the above! We loved that it was really clean! You must have a great cleaning crew! The furniture was very nice and the beds were comfortable. We didn’t use the sofa bed, but it looked new. We loved the porch with rocking chairs and benches, and it was so convenient to have a deck off of the boardwalk to the beach where we could drop our chairs and beach toys without having to lug them all the way back to the house. The only negative, which really didn’t bother us but thought I’d mention to be honest, is that the kitchen showed some wear and tear in the countertops, appliances and dishes. But it was very well equipped, and I’m sure it’s on the list for some renovations. We would definitely recommend it to our friends!

Great beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at this home on Holden Beach. Everything was clean and true to pictures. The beds were comfortable and kitchen was sufficiently stocked. We cook all our meals and found everything we needed. We had 9 adults 3 small children. We did have an extra guest one night and the pull out sofa is not really suitable to sleep on, the mattress part is just way too thin. Luckily, we had an air mattress and there was plenty of space to accommodate it! We visit holden beach almost every year and this was a really nice rental.
