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.

Everything you need AND want for a family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all. This is our 6th visit to Holden Beach in 20 years and we have found the house that All family members loved. First the location is unbeatable. Although across the street from the beach, we had an awesome view that won’t ever be compromised (across from pool parking lot), especially loved our morning coffee “Up on the Roof”. Access to the Seaside at Winding River pool (which was never crowded) gave us quick access to the beach, easy sand rinse coming back, a pool swim, and quick return to the house. The owners, Wendy and Marc, have made their beautiful home inviting, comfortable, and worry-free (everything needed is there and if not, easy to contact them since they live nearby). We enjoyed playing card games at the large dinner table or sitting, talking, and reading on the many balconies, always with a view of the ocean in comfortable seating (rocking chairs or tall chairs to see over the railing). Can’t ask for anything more…we’ll be back and our hope is that “Up on the Roof” will be available.

AMAZING house and location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and the layout/furnishings made the trip with 2 young kids easy. The beach and pool was a short walk across the street. Even though the house isn't on the beach it still felt like it was on the beach with the ocean views and the short distance. We gave the kids their 'baths' in the outdoor shower after the beach/pool which made the bath time process much easier! Kitchen was fully stocked and kids enjoyed playing the games and puzzles that were provided. We definitely would stay here again.

Our favorite places to eat were Beaches n Cream and Provision Co.
