Nice beach, ok house, needs updates

  • 3 of 5

The house was clean (housekeeper did a great job!!) and the beach was nice but the house needs some major updates! Kitchen could have been stocked better with things like knives, a mixer with all parts, etc. and the dishes didn’t feel very clean when the bottom cabinets don’t have shelves so pots are basically in floor. Beds need updating, mattress are older and a little worn. Front screen door leaks during rain and back door screen is torn up. Outdoor furniture is worn. Overall the location was good and the beach was nice but it was a little less than what we expected.

Nice house at a great location. Uncomfortable beds

  • 3 of 5

Shell Seekers is a very nice house at a wonderful location on beautiful Holden Beach. Unfortunately the beds were very uncomfortable. I actually considered sleeping on the couch or hammock below the house.

Older home steps away from the beach.

  • 2 of 5

Great location if your looking for a very simple island get away. The house is steps away from the water and fairly private even though it is surrounded by public beach access points. The home itself is in need of some serious TLC. It could be a great house but we had some issues with the air conditioning, very uncomfortable beds, stains all over the floors but for the price I guess your paying for beach front access.

Holden Beach

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed the house and a great location. Minutes from the access bridge and had the beach to ourselves. There was a public beach access nearby, but did not impact us at all. The house was perfect for us. Easy walkout straight to the beach and nice back porch. The bedrooms, kitchen, and living areas met our needs. Would definitely rent this house again.

Very family oriented and peaceful area to relax and enjoy a vacation on the Atlantic Ocean. Several delicious seafood restaurants nearby and seafood markets with fresh Brunswick catch to prepare your own. The island boast all private homes and cottages, no hotels.

Waterslide, putt-putt, go carts, ice cream, bike rentals etc with in a 5 minute drive just off the island on the causeway. Foodlion, ATM, Walgreens, Bank and gas nearby.

Wonderful environment to make those lasting family memories.
