Recent Holden Beach vacation rental reviews

We thoroughly enjoyed our first trip to Holden Beach and A Southern Exposure. It’s a wonderful house with great views, and breezes on the front and back decks. Other than slow drains in the showers we had no complaints at all. Although we didn’t take a pet this trip, the pet friendly policy will likely be one of the biggest reasons we will choose this cottage again.

Booked this for a family reunion and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The accommodations were clean, well equipped and spacious. 2 minutes to the beach and friendly neighbors. I felt safe and secure. Holden beach is beautiful. Area was quiet but it was also off season. Grocery store a quick 10 minute drive. Would definitely book again.

Beautiful views and very cool dock and pool area. The rooms are very comfortable and the home is updated and kept in very nice condition.

Where are our Holden Beach vacation rentals?

With a population of just over 1,100 at the 2019 census, little Holden Beach is nestled on a barrier island just off the North Carolina coast. The island is only eight miles long, and while there are conveniences like familiar shopping centers and restaurants, Holden Beach still retains a small-town charm and strong local community.

Things to do near our Holden Beach vacation rentals

While you might not find large amusement parks or bustling city centers, our Holden Beach house rentals are the perfect place to enjoy the simpler side of vacation.

First and foremost, of course: the beach. The better half of the island’s beaches—save the westernmost end—are all public, with dozens of access points, many of which offer free parking. And trust us: once you sink your toes into these sun-soaked sands, you’ll be glad you chose Holden Beach for your getaway. The beaches are uncrowded, pristine, and the perfect place to catch some rays, swim in the gentle waves, hunt for shells, or build sandcastles.

Water sports enthusiasts, rejoice: our Holden Beach house rentals are the perfect base for an aquatic adventure. From kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding on the Intracoastal Waterway to surfing in the ocean waves, you’ll find all kinds of ways to enjoy the water. Anglers will love a day of fishing on the pier, complete with a grill and snack counter so you can get the most out of your day. Or you can launch your boat from one of the ramps for a deep-sea fishing excursion, or just cruising around the island. 

If you like your vacations to look a little more relaxing, you’re in luck. A stay at our Holden Beach vacation rentals puts you within driving distance from many more laid-back activities. Visit the Bald Head Lighthouse and Museum, or stroll along one of many nature trails, including the 900-acre Brunswick Nature Park, where you can admire the local flora and fauna. Golfers can choose from a number of public courses, country clubs, driving ranges, and even mini-golf. 

And when you’re hungry, don’t forget to take advantage of the local restaurants serving up fresh-caught seafood. Whether you’re craving battered and deep-fried Southern cookin’ or a fine dining experience, Holden Beach has you covered.

Isn’t it time you had a vacation? Peaceful beaches and family memories are waiting for you. Browse our expansive collection of beautiful Holden Beach vacation homes and start dreaming of that next getaway.
