ABOUT PRICING & HOW TO MAKE RESERVATIONS
We have held our prime season pricing the same. Weekly rentals run from Saturday afternoon through Saturday morning the following week. We only accept rentals in full weeks during the summer seasons unless the property is unrented six days or less in advance. We will consider shorter terms in other seasons. Minimum stay is 3 nights. We greatly prefer requests for partial-week rentals within a weekly rental period (Saturday through Saturday) instead of overlapping across two weeks (such as Friday through Monday).
We are required to have you complete bookings through our rental agency, Coastal Vacation Resorts at Holden Beach. You can contact Coastal at 800-252-7000.
Please note that the rental amount quoted does not include Coastal's $50 processing fee or applicable taxes. Linens and cleaning may be subject to additional fees. There is a $300 security deposit at the time of booking or a $100 non-refundable fee for damage insurance at the time of reservation.
Thanks for reading this! Let us know if you have any questions.
I've spent my career in the newspaper industry as a reporter, editor, publisher and now executive director of the Ohio Newspaper Association in Columbus, Ohio. I'm also a published author. My novel, "Killing the Curse," imagines the Chicago Cubs (my hometown team) in a World Series and a crazed fan who will do anything to ensure they win. It also involves the President and a lot more intrigue. Check it out on Amazon or elsewhere! I'm still hoping this guitar thing works out when I grow up. My wife, Cheryl, is a retired educator. We have three adult children and plan to retire in our Holden Beach home in just a few more years. For now, it gives us a lot of pleasure to share our home with other families -- and it also helps pay the bills! Dennis Hetzel
Dennis Hetzel purchased this house in 2011
We just completed a six-day stay at the home with two families and anything you would need for a week away from home is there. We were there for Thanksgiving and had nearly everything we would have needed for making our own feast was in the house.
The house is immaculate and the setting is awesome just a short walk from the beach. It truly is a quiet location away from a lot of the tourist traps. You won't need to bring much at all for your stay.
If you are going to grill, bring or purchase charcoal since it is not a gas grill. That was the only thing that wasn't clear about the house description. Otherwise, prepare to relax and enjoy yourself.
Holden Beach has been named one of America's best family beaches. Even on the most crowded weekends, there is plenty of room. That's because there are no high-rise condos and related urban sprawl. What you find is a long, beautiful beach and the Intercoastal Waterway for swimming and boating of all types. It's also a great spot for bike riding, jogging and even turtle watching. Within a few minutes drive are several excellent golf courses including Lockwood Folly and the Fred Couples courses at Winding River Plantation. And, within less than an hour's drive are dozens more courses and all the nightlife and shopping of Myrtle Beach and Wilmington. It's also an easy drive to the famous waterfront seafood restaurants of Calabash and the old city of Southport. The island itself has several restaurants, pubs and shops. All your immediate needs as well as more restaurants are right across the bridge or in nearby Shallotte. The summer also brings numerous outdoor concerts and festivals.
