Great house and a great stay!

What a great house on the beach and great owners! We had a wonderful time, accommodations were great and so was regular communication with the owner Beth! She reached out to answer questions and was responsive to text throughout our stay. The house was perfect for me, my partner and our little dog. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked. The house is a great location on the beach without too many people crowding the beach! Great location! We will definitely come back to this house!

The most relaxing beach vacation I have had in a very long time!

Our first time booking, new to the area and unfamiliar with the vacation rental process, I thought to myself GOSH I hope I am not making a mistake, this may be the first and last time we go.
Arriving there I was pleasantly suprised! Fist impression, quaint and quiet. Upon entering: Clean and smell of freshly laundered linens. The place was immaculate. The furniture didnt look overly used. It looked like this place could actually be my OWN beach home away from home.... AND IT WAS! Having all the necessities, and what you may need or forgotten is only a couple miles up the road at Dollar General, Walgreens or Food Lion! How convenient! I loved every single thing about the place. My elder in law had to have direct beach access... it was soooo nice for her to sit on the covered back porch and watch from inside so as not to get too much sun, or walk down for an hour or two at a time. So nice not to have to haul all the beach must have's and forced to stay all day due to the inconvenience of STUFF you need for long stints on the beach. Morning sunrise and sunsets so close to the pier made for great photo ops! The layout of the beach house was most favorable for parties of 6 and privacy with a baby.
THIS WILL BE THE ONLY PLACE WE WILL RETURN TO FROM NOW ON :) Thank you Beth, you were absolutely right - it was the perfect little place!

Location Location Location

This was our first time renting a property on the beach and our first stay at Holden. This PROPERTY is ALL about LOCATION!! Beautiful access right on the beach, close to the local market, and pier, and close to the playground and bridge access to other businesses, such as drug store, and grocery stores. The house is a open 3 bedroom/2 baths that is homey and comfortable. It has a large kitchen with many necessities, that we fully utilized, and two porches with views of the street and the beach. The rocking chairs on the porch viewing the ocean were well used.
The home gives the impression of home and beach cottage. There could be some cosmetic updates with some bathroom updates, but I have to say, the location is perfect. We used it as we would our home and relaxed and enjoyed the property. The property was fresh smelling, clean and inviting upon arrival, with even the owner leaving a welcome note with flowers. Such a sweet touch. They were even so nice to check on use during our stay.
Would I stay here again............Most definitely! Holden beach and the people we met at the businesses
and on the beach were great, friendly and new friend were made.
Looking forward to the next time. THANK YOU to the Duvall's for letting us share your beautiful slice
of Holden Beach.....

True Beach House!

Our family visited Holden Beach last-minute on a whim after looking for a beachfront house to rent. When we arrived, we were welcomed with a beautiful display of fresh flowers and a home that is literally on the beach. The house is the perfect place if you are looking for a beach vacation somewhere that is not a huge tourist attraction (ie: Hilton Head, Myrtle Beach, etc.). The house itself has all the kitchen essentials for cooking as well as a charcoal grill. Additionally, there are two full bathrooms (and one bathtub - which we used for our kids) which is a nice added benefit. There is also a porch that looks right out onto the ocean, so if the weather is bad, you can still take a book and sit on the porch while looking out to the ocean. Overall, we couldn't have been happier with the house and the owner, Beth, is really great to work with. Thank you for sharing your beach house with us!

Fabulous Vacation Week At A Wonderful Beach House :)

I just came back from a week at Holden Beach with my husband and 4 year old son. It was a fantastic week staying
at the Wing Beneath My Wings beach rental house:) It was our first time on the North Carolina coast. I had a ton of questions ahead of time and more while we were there- the homeowner was always patient, responsive, and knowledgeable. The house itself was beautiful. We were in the upstairs unit, with a beautiful ocean view. I loved the fact that the house had both a deck and a screened in porch. We had breakfast out on the deck every morning, overlooking the water. On the days when the wind picked up in the evening or there was a little rain, it was great to have the screened in porch. We opened all of the porch windows to hear the waves and could look out at the water. We had dinner in the screened in porch every evening. The porch was well stocked with beach toys and toy vehicles, to the delight of my son. The beds and furniture were comfortable and the house was clean. The kitchen had all of the cookware and tableware that we needed. I loved the location of this house on Holden Beach. It is in a stretch of the beach where there is no back row of houses on the other side of the street, so there is no beach access from the street. That meant that we had a ton of space and privacy on the beach in front of the house, there were very few other people on that stretch of beach. It was a short walk on the beach to the pier, which my son loved. Also it was a short walk to the little general store, and the ice cream parlor. We chose the date of our trip for the end of September for my son’s 4th birthday. It was a happy coincidence that this date, being considered offseason, meant we were able to bring our dog on the beach. It was great that the house allowed our dog. The homeowner had sent me information before the trip in response to my request for a fishing excursion for my son. Her recommendation was perfect and my son absolutely loved it. We grocery shopped when we arrived for most of our meals, and did a few takeout restaurant meals for dinner. The restaurants in the area were great. We are definitely planning to return to this house for an annual vacation, I am so glad we found this place! Next time, post-Covid, we plan on exploring the area more when we are there.
