Best vacation home ever

  • 5 of 5

This house is super clean, the best stocked kitchen I have seen in a vacation rental home, everything looks clean and new. Enough room for two families (4 adults and 5 kids), very short walk to the beach (just across the road). Ocean view!! Despite second row!!! We love the house and had a great time and of course we hope to return next year!!!

Great beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Idle Hour was a fantastic beach house to rent. The house is plenty roomy, the beach access is very close and convenient, and it was extremely clean and well appointed. Everything we needed and more was provided for us, with nice little thoughtful touches you don't get with other rentals. Jeff was EXTREMELY fast and easy to deal with, could not have been more responsive and accommodating. The family really enjoyed the ping pong table in the garage, so that was a nice bonus. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about the house and rental experience, it was all positive. My family enthusiastically agreed that we would definitely rent this house again if we decided to go back to Holden Beach. Do not hesitate to rent this house, you will be very pleased with the property and the interactions with the owner.

This house was perfect for our vacation. It is clean, well maintained, and decorated. We did not have any issues, and the pre-vacation questions we asked were answered very quickly by the owner. The house has everything you need, more than any other rental we have ever stayed. Everything worked like it should. Access to the beach is close. This is a great place for everyone at Holden Beach. We look forward to returning again next year!!

Absolutely Beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

I totally recommend Idle Hour! This place is very well appointed. We really didn't need to bring anything but our clothes and supply the food. This place has everything you need for vacation. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to prepare meals. The linens are provided. It even has beach towels to borrow. It has beach toys for the kids and chairs. The ping pong table was loads of fun! And a ring/hook game on the back deck for the adults to play!! The front deck has a very nice high top table to sit and relax and enjoy your morning coffee and listen to the surf. The very short walk to the beach is literally one house over. The beach is fabulous! Very large and full of sea shells. (And crabs at night! 😉) Jeff Was great to work with, no problems at all!

The area is very family friendly and some nightlife bars for adults. Down the beach a little ways is a great place to have lunch or order and take it with you to the beach. And they have hand dipped ice cream!! I just can't say enough about Idle Hour! You won't be disappointed!!

"Ocepek -5- Turtle Stay"

  • 5 of 5

We had such a relaxing terrific stay. It was like coming home. Such easy access to the beach house and to the beach. We were able to kick back and enjoy our family like we wanted to. With all of us spread out, we always look forward to a week at the beach together. The beach house was fully stocked with all the amenities needed, just like being home. We look forward to next year.
