Very Nice & Clean!!! Very inviting and the home owners were so pleasant to deal with!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at "Idle Hour" in Holden Beach. The house was perfect for our family! There was plenty of room and it was very inviting when we walked in the door! The house was also very clean!! Everything in the house has definitely been updated and decorated so nice. The beds were comfortable, the living room and dining area had plenty of room, and the kitchen was furnished with everything and more that we needed for cooking and our stay. The linens were freshly laundered by a company and they also laundered them when we left....NICE!! All towels and wash cloths were provided as well, even beach towels!! This place is Fabulous!!

The decks had plenty of room and nice furniture which included a picnic table for the kids😊�. We loved the ping pong table, hammock, & swing that was provided as well.

The walk to the beach was very pleasant, especially since we only had to walk straight across to our beach access.

The homeowners were fabulous to work with.

Everything about this place was GREAT and we will definitely be staying here again!!!!

Wonderful home. Quick and easy access to beach with young children. Home was immaculate with everything we needed. Owners were accommodating and there was even a welcome basket waiting! We will certainly consider this home when planning our return.

First trip to Holden Beach, July 29th - Aug 5th 2017.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Holden Beach. The house was perfect and has one of the best stocked kitchens. It is a very short walk to the beach access and to the beach. Our teenagers loved the ping pong table and we enjoyed watching their competitions from the swing. The front and back porches were relaxing for all. This was definitely a stress free vacation for everyone! Thank you for sharing your home.

What a great house!

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! It was one of the cleanest rentals we have ever stayed in and there wasn’t anything the house was lacking. Jeff was great to work with and very responsive. The walk to the beach is short enough for small children. You do have to cross a somewhat busy road, but we didn’t have any problems with that. The ping pong table/garage area was a great place to play when we weren’t exploring the area or on the beach. I would highly recommend this house, especially for families!
