It continues to be a beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We love Up on the Roof and have vacationed there for several Summers. This year was even better with the upgrades to the house including new flooring upstairs, appliances, and fresh paint and carpet in the downstairs bedrooms! This beach house is by far the cleanest rental we’ve stayed in at Holden Beach. We can’t wait to return next year! PS)Thank you for the welcome gifts!

Gorgeous Home, Spectacular Views, Comfortable Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Marc & Wendy provided our stay with ease and they greeted us upon arrival! We are thankful for these very friendly home owners. House was clean and neatly kept. Lots of kitchen supplies, no need to pack any for your trip! There were board games, TV & Bose system for radio in main living room, lots of seating, the best utilities in kitchen, large washer & dryer, and very comfortable bedding. Our party consisted of 10 people and there was more than enough space if a couple more attended. I believe one of the couches even rolls out into another bed. Oh! You will be amazed by all the balconies! I found us to be outside on these more than indoors. We spent every morning on the front balcony by living room for coffees with ocean views, and spent most every sunset "up on the roof"!

This trip was for our wedding and the photographer used lots of the actual home for photo ops.

Again, the home owners are very sweet and genuine people! I highly recommend this home as a perfect getaway for a large group. You will not be disappointed! Thanks Marc and Wendy for sharing your home with us...a sweet memory for our special occasion.

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Right across the street from the beach and use of the pool! The house is beautifully decorated, has comfortable beds, and well-equipped kitchen. Couldn't have been nicer. The owners were always very helpful with any questions we had. My family all agreed to come back again!

What a great find for us!

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation! House was wonderful, view wonderful, everything you could want for a great stay. With our kids, their spouses and babies we had a marvelous time. So close to everything. Great communication with owners, and the house had everything you need! We were amazed at the things the house was equipped with. The only things you need to bring with you are food, towels, paper products. Will certainly plan to visit again. Thanks Wendy and Marc for making our first family vacation a raving success.
