Great time at Holden Beach

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an amazing time while staying at this property. The description was accurate and to my surprise even better than I expected. The house was very clean, well-mainted and the interior decorating was so cute...very beachy. Working with the owner was a delight. He was very easy to work with, provided excellent customer all around nice person. I would recommend this property without hesitation. Anyone looking for a very nice and affordable place to stay - you have found it with this property.

Awesome Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with another couple rented the upper portion of the home for a week. We all had such a good time! Only a 5 minute walk to the beach and a beautiful view of the sound from the back porch. This was our first real vacation in the six years we have been together and I can guarantee that we won't soon forget it. The owner happened to be coming on the day we were leaving and was super nice considering we had miscommunication with the time of check-out. (It was a miscommunication on our end, not the owner's.) I have a feeling we will be back next year!

Great Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Holden this weekend! The house was clean and had everything we needed. When we weren't on the beach we were on the back porch overlooking the waterway. It is a great place to relax and unwind. Definitely will be staying again!

Lovely home.

  • 5 of 5

My family and a few friends rented the whole house July the 4th week of 2014. It was very nice, we were able to walk to the beach, cook out and have a nice relaxing week. It is nice to have a place to go and be able to go and relax. I want to rent from them in the near future.

A True Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I recently had the pleasure of coming to stay on Holden Beach for a friend's wedding. My son, daughter-in-law, daughter, and grandson shared the Lion's Paw house (lower level) with our friend and her son. The owners told us to make ourselves at home, and it was easy to do. We had more than enough room, as promised, and the location was perfect for our family. My daughter and I loved sitting out on the boat-dock, and we spent several evenings as a family, on the deck overlooking the water, as my son played guitar.

Beach access was only a block away, and the neighborhood was clean, safe, and friendly. The property is well-kept and tidy. This is a home-like atmosphere, and the owners attended any questions or issues we had, promptly. They really made us feel like we were just friends who they had welcomed into their home, and neighborhood. They offered us use of their bikes, boogie boards, and other toys while we stayed there, and even let the kids "borrow" their dog Abby, for a visit.

I would recommend this property to any friend looking for an economical home-like place to spend vacation. It's only half a mile from the pier and Haley's ice-cream shop (A can't miss), and only a block from the ocean and all it has to offer. Our favorite beach was at the northernmost point of the island - there you will find quiet coves, great shelling, and a chance to "walk on water" across a slightly submerged sandbar, all the way to another island. I also enjoyed a guided kayak tour at Summertide Adventures Bird Island tour from nearby Calabash. e are really beach people, and didn't go to many restaurants etc. We cooked , ate in, and even baked cookies at our home-away-from-home. Our favorite treats were to Haley's Ice-Cream shop and Sunset Slush stand, down by the Pavilion. (Be sure to check out the free local concerts at the pavilion on Sunday nights, as well. There is so much to do here, if you are on a budget! We will definitely return to Holden Beach, and Joel and Dana's home will be our first pick for accommodations.

Hello everyone. This is the private beach home of my wife and I. We have two children. Our home is kid friendly. This is truly a get away for us. We hope it will be relaxing for you as well. Holden beach was voted by USA Today as one of the top ten family beaches in the country. Virtually no high rises on the beach. Very quiet. If you have any questions, please call, I'll try to help.
