I have spent a portion of every summer of my life at Holden Beach and really consider it to be home. However, this was the first time that I had ever looked for a rental on the island (growing families=less room in our usual location). We wanted a rental that would go until Sunday rather than the usual Saturday changeover,...

I was very excited to go on this vacation. Lets start with the good. The oceanfront view is amazing and only walking 20 yards to touch the ocean was great. The ice maker was a beast. Washer and dryer worked good. Now the bad. The cockroaches inside the kitchen and outside the front door were disgusting. The air conditioning vents...

Our dealings with the realty company were fine but it was really the overall condition of the house that I was disappointed in. The decorating scheme was dated but that's not what bothered me - it was the cleanliness. The comforters were absolutely disgusting and had very weird stains on them. The kitchen also left much to be desired in...

My family and I were looking for a short-term rental on Holden Beach in NC and we found a few places on a site called Alan Holden Vacations. Because we were seeking a two-day rental, we called somewhat last minute and we were steered to a house that was "perfect" for us. So, after all the fees and rent were...

We vacationed at Holden Beach in late May/early June of this year. We have rented from at least 3 different rental companies there and the experience is about the same with all. Here are some answers to some of the complaints: 1) For those that complain about the air conditioning not working.... you might read the fine print in ALL...

Beware--If you do not buy insurance and have to cancel, they will find a way to keep your entire deposit and all monies paid. Even if you are a repeat customer! They only care about their profit, not the customer.

I have been coming to Holden Beach since the paved road stopped before you even got to the pier. I have raised my mom&dad here, my children here, and this year, my grand daughter got her first taste of Holden Beach sand. I would not rent from any one but Alan and I will not go to any other beach...

We just returned from Holden Beach, NC where we stayed at a home rented through Alan Holden Vacations. Despite our late arrival (after 5:00 pm) we were able to quickly and easily get keys to the house and let ourselves in to immediately begin our vacation. When we needed to call maintenance, they arrived promptly and were very helpful and...

We went to Holden Beach in May for two weeks. We rented a home right on the beach, Amazing Grace. It wasn't very amazing except for the location, which was beautiful. The home was very dirty when we arrived, and the air conditioner wasn't working properly and the blinds weren't working , couldn't even close the bedroom ones. Called Alan...

“Each condo is a bit different for sleeping options. So be sure to look through each one to see what fits your needs best.”

“Don't stay near the pier or too close to the bridge. Both are noisy locations.”

“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.”
