We just returned from One Happy Place on Holden Beach and it was beyond our expectations. We stayed for a week with our two little girls and parents. The house was beautiful. There were plenty of beds, bedrooms and bathrooms for our family. Kitchen was fully stocked. We loved the appliances in the kitchen and made cooking a breeze. The porch, pool and grilling area were our favorite parts of the house. We used the outdoor shower multiple times a day when returning from the beach! And the beach access is right across the street from the house. There was also plenty of beach chairs and toys for us to use. It was our first time at Holden Beach and let me tell you it is beautiful and quiet. I will say I was hesitant to book with Vacasa because of the previous reviews but I had an excellent experience working with this rental property management company. They checked on us a few times during the week to make sure we were comfortable on our stay. The house was very clean and ready for us on our arrival. We will be booking from Vacasa again and we look forward to staying at One Happy Place next year. We had such a great time!

(Just one thing- bring beach towels when renting this house. After reading previous reviews, we brought beach towels so we were fine. There are plenty of bath towels just not any for the beach.)

Nicely appointed home. Close the beach access.

It was a beautiful home but I expected it to be better. I don’t think I will ever rent through vacasa again. They provided, literally, ONE towel per person for the week. Taking my own detergent/soaps are understandable but to have ONE towel per guest was absolutely ridiculous. We have two small children and the lack of ANYTHING in that house was mind blowing. My inlaws used to rent their BEAUTIFUL home in Florida & they would provide everything the renter needed. Detergent, coffee, closets full of every size towel, sun tan lotions, pool toys, etc. there was NOTHING there. It was a shame. I didn’t expect to have a ton of stuff but they should provide SOMETHING! The house was dusty, the sheets didn’t even fit on the bed, the comforter definitely was not washed, the beds in the twin room had food stains (unwashed) on them, YIKES! It was a beautiful home that just needed taken better care of!
Manager response:
Hi, Alexis! We're sorry the condition of the home was not satisfactory. Housekeeping has been asked to launder the comforters and get a deep clean scheduled for the home. We do provide on towel per guest and apologize if this was an inconvenience to you. Hopefully we can better impress you next time!

My family and I loved our time at Holden and One Happy Place was wonderful. We have talked about coming back again.

1) The home was extremely clean (unlike our rental @ Holden last year);
2) It was very convenient to walk in to a bed already made up (neatly) - making the beds upon arrival is such a chore;
3) The welcome basket was such a nice surprise - w/all the essentials for kitchen & laundry
4) We loved the pool area - especially the comfy chairs by the pool and the fact that we had access to shade was appreciated.

Beach access directly across the street. There were 6 adults and 4 children during our stay. Pool got a lot of use. The home is beautiful and had plenty of room.

We LOVED our stay at One Happy Place!! It`s a great house, well stocked, spacious, comfortable, and well-equipped. We had everything we needed for a week-long stay and had plenty of space for two families, with 5 children between us. It’s awesome to have the pool to keep the kids occupied when they tire of the beach and the beach access is right across the street, making it easy to spend 20 minutes or hours on the beach. This is technically a second row home but it feels like it`s ocean front. We had great views of the sunset out of the master bedroom window and spent hours on the front decks watching the ocean, reading books and just relaxing on the rocking chairs. The rooms are all really big with lots of storage and we never felt like we were tripping over everything, as often happens with a houseful of kids. This was our first time at Holden Beach and we were pleasantly surprised by how peaceful it was. The sand is super soft and the waves were perfect for our kids, ages 5-10 to enjoy. They boogie boarded a lot but I never felt nervous with them in the ocean. The owner and rental company were both super responsive and helpful. I would return to this home in a heartbeat.

We just returned from One Happy Place and couldn`t have been happier! The house was beautiful, everything looked brand new, upscale kitchen appliances, large rooms, tons of storage, quality TVs in the bedrooms. Location to beach access was close that we would go in the morning and again at night. Beach was great for families with tons of space to social distance and waves were safe for kids to boogie board without worry. Pool was perfect too, furniture around it was exactly what we needed. Shed had beach chairs and pool floats too! We had a wonderful time and would definitely rent again! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

I can`t tell you enough how amazing this house is! It was the perfect home for this crazy time. The house is super comfy, with plenty of space. Loved all the storage available in every room and closet- allows you to truly unpack for the week. The master bath is AMAZING...can shower while looking at the beach. The beach access is right across the street, which is extremely convenient with little ones. Having the pool and the beach were so great and easy to bounce between the two with an outdoor shower to rinse off. Views from the top deck made you feel like you were oceanfront. We will absolutely stay there again...had the greatest time with the best memories! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We had a wonderful stay at One Happy Place. The house was immaculately clean and very well stocked for cooking (we made all our meals at the house). The location directly across the street from beach access was great for many quick trips to the beach (with young kids especially) during the day. The outdoor shower made cleanup a breeze. The outdoor pool was gorgeous and had lots of seating groups. It was also fully gated which gave us peace of mind with regard to safety. It was so nice to have our own private pool during the pandemic so we could swim and play without worry. The decor is gorgeous and made the stay feel luxurious. Can`t wait to return!
