Recent Holden Beach vacation rental reviews

This amazing small family cottage has convienent Holden Beach location. The cottage provides upgrade stylish decor. The covered front porch with comfortable furniture is super to enjoy the ocean breeze.
Sarah T. | Jul 2022
Having both East & West provided two living rooms and two kitchens and plenty of bedrooms. When not at the beach (which is terrific) kids could hang out watching television on on side while non-kids could be on the other side with some conversation time or watching something else on tv. Two kitchens means two refrigerators so had plenty of room for food and beverage storage. Two kitchens also meant two stoves so able to prepare lots of food easily. The counters were next to the stoves so it was easy to prepare and serve food for the masses. The beach access is great and the beach had few people because access is very limited to people who are not staying at a beach house but access from the beach house was very easy and fast. Place was clean and well maintained. Linens and towels were high quality and no shortage of them. Washers and dryers on both sides so easy to do lots of laundry for lots of people. The decks have very comfortable rocking chairs that make relaxing easy while looking over the beach and water.

By far one of our favorite stays at Holden Beach. I’m a quiet and well kept neighborhood. This home has so much space and great family gathering spaces. The kitchen is fully stocked with whatever you could possibly need. We left home without a crockpot and low and behold, they had one. Beds are comfortable and plenty of extra blankets too. It’s a lovely short walk to the beach. Can’t wait to come back.

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.
