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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

We have been coming to Holden Beach off and on for the last 30 years. We have rented from other reality places but find Alan Holden Vacations to be the best. Wonderful people. Never had a problem with them emailing us or fixing things. They have always been very helpful. We brought our kids when they were little. Now we... More
