This was our 4th year staying at Amazing Grace, what a change from last year! We absolutely love the location of this house but we found so many things wrong just from last year. Sidenote as the rental agency would have no idea of this but why do tenants steal kitchenware (pans, dishes, etc)?? We kinda know what we need...

For the HOMEOWNER AND ALSO FOR ALAN HOLDEN VACATIONS since you are the rental company. On my 30 plus years of renting different kind of properties (oceanfront) on the NC Coast I have never stayed on a place infected with “ROACHES” LIKE THE BARNACLE (325 Ocean Blvd West Holden Beach, NC 28462 ) IS..Disgusting, and a Rip off AND "DIRT"...

First of all, the rating for the location of this house is FIVE (maybe SIX) stars (which is why we love it) It's ocean front on the East side of the island, and currently has only 1 home beside it, and the other side is an empty lot (but unfortunately that is for sale now, so who knows) This end...

We love Holden Beach, NC. This is a beach for families. We always go in the off season when it's less crowded. We are able to enjoy the natural beauty of the beach that way. My boys love playing on the beach and in the water. This is our favorite beach.

Alan Holden is an amazing rental agency. Their responsiveness and attentiveness are non patrol. My extended family is staying at a house Holden manages. Four or five of us were sitting on the deck at the end of the catwalk and someone walked onto the deck. It cracked and dropped about an inch but didn't collapse. Holden sent someone out...

We have used "Alan Holden Vacations" for the last 2 years and have had no problems, whatsoever. Our reservationist was Gloria, who was nice and really helpful. We rented a cottage, "Holden Us Again" for 2 years in a row. It was clean, well maintained and attractively furnished. Everything you might need and pretty close to being at "home". We...

This place was great from the moment you walk in you see the ocean. This is a top floor unit with great views of the ocean and pier, we even saw Dolphins!!! We felt right at home with the furnishing and Décor, everything was just perfect...Do yourself a favor and check it out. Enjoy!!!

For a rental home, this was perfect for our family. It actually looked better in person that the pictures online. The only complaint I have is that the house was not very clean and was pretty beat up. The over beeped on and off (particularly in the middle of the night) and command said 'Remove Probe'. Which we didn't even...

This is the second time we have stayed at this property. While definitely a 70's decor, the best part about this second row house is the unobstructed view of the ocean. Size is appropriate for a couple and maybe one child-very cramped otherwise. The negatives would be VERY low flow water in the shower, old, VERY low seating sofas and...

“We prefer canal homes as we have family members that enjoy sitting on the canal dock and crabbing and fishing. Also can launch a kayak easily in the quiet canal water.”
