About Richard Holden

I have lived in Columbus since 1986. My wife, Rabiab, and I love the area and never plan to move. We have four sons, all grown, and three married. We also have five grandchildren. I am retired from the Air Force and now teach technology classes at MUW. Rabiab is retired from United Technologies and now keeps up with our rental homes.

Richard Holden purchased this house in 1988

Why Richard Holden chose Columbus

The vacation rental was our home, but we bought and moved into the house of one of our sons in 2010. The move was partially because our son had to leave and houses were not selling well. Also, his house was smaller and we were ready to downsize. Turning our former home into a vacation rental then became a logical choice since we did not want to sell it.

What makes this house unique

We love the peaceful, country setting and spacious yard with private, in-ground pool. We occasionally see deer in our backyard on the hill near the gazebo. The sunroom and large downstairs den are, arguably the two favorite rooms in the house. The convenient location is another plus. Downtown is only 3 miles away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I and my sister-in-law and her husband so enjoyed our stay here. The accommodations were fabulous and our hosts were pleasant and attentive to our needs. We look forward to coming back soon!

We had a great stay at this rental house. We came for the Alabama / Miss. State game and it is only a 20 minute drive to Starkville. The home felt was warm and welcoming. It felt like we were at our home away from home. The owners are very courtious and accomidating.
Thanks for a great memory!

Football Game Weekend

  • 4 of 5
We rented the house as a place to stay during our recent trip to Starkville to watch MSU play football. We rented the house with another family and it was perfect place to enjoy our visit together. The downstairs rec room was great. Will keep in mind next time we come to watch the Dawgs play.
