We have stayed in this rental several times and we plan on coming back twice a year. The home is in excellent condition, in a perfect location, and the owners are extremely nice. We love it.Tom M

Fantastic Getaway Weekend
We enjoyed our stay so much. We have stayed here before. We like the house a lot and love the location. It is close to everything yet very quiet at night. Glad we can bring our dog. We will be back! Lin and Ken are great to rent from.Barry R.

Wonderful house with great location to everything! Nice neighborhood, clean, beautiful place
Enjoyed the house so much that we can't wait to come back! Had not stayed in North Myrtle area since I was a kid. It had been 30 years! Love it so much more now than Myrtle Beach! Beach was a short 1/2 block walk and the access was easier than we've ever experienced! My mother is handicapped to the extent that she walks with a cane and can't do steps. She had easy access from parking spot to a straight walk in. No steps for her as she was downstairs and then going to beach it was straight in with no decking steps. She was so impressed with how easy it was for her! Really appreciated being able to bring our older little poodle. She was thrilled to be with us and this place was so much cleaner than most places that allow pets! Loved having all the amenities we have at home. Our 10 year old twin daughters say they never want to stay in condo or hotel again. We all loved having the extra space to move around, not having to fight people for stinky hot elevators at the hotels or for parking spots. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. Loved the ice cream at Mr G's and our neighbors for the week. We ate at Duffy Street Seafood Shack on Main Street and it was a happening spot! The crab legs and fried fish were great as was the carrot cake and key lime pie! Also, tried Benito's Brick Oven out on the main drag from the house. Pizza was so good we ate there again another night. Had the chicken parm and fettuccini Alfredo. Had Kings Famous Pizza also. It was good but we preferred Benito's. Nacho Hippo was good Mexican food. Pirate's Voyage was a hit with the kids. Barefoot Landing was close by and we drove to Broadway at the Beach and up to Pawley's Island. Not a long drive to get to those areas either. Just steer clear of high traffic times. We didn't want to leave and hope to return again some day. Great vacation!Aimee J.

This is a great property. Super location, clean, dog friendly, nicely furnished, good mattresses too, good water pressure, nice/friendly owners, good & easy parking, fair price. These are the 9 things I was looking for in a rental. This property exceeded my expectations on each item. Would recommend this property to a friend.Bruce G.

Another great week with the family
This is the seventh time we have stayed at 1608 Holly Drive. Lin does a great job keeping the place super clean and well furnished. The decor is very nice too. Being a stand also home, you're not worried about noisy neighbors above you or just one thin wall away. Nice little patio area with a grill to cook-out and have a beer or relax in the morning with a cup of coffee. We always enjoy going there with our kids who begg us to return every year, and having a great time at the beach and all the wonderful places to play, eat and entertain ourselves. We really enjoy playing Putt-putt golf every night, having ice cream at Mr. G's just steps away from the house, or walking around Main Street, Barefoot Landing, or Broadway at the Beach. The beach is especially nice because it's a few steps away and not crowded like other very popular destinations. You can enjoy a good bit of sand all to yourself relaxing without the huge tourist crowds. Looking forward to returning you our favorite summer getaway.Gabe M

Great location, quiet, clean, had everything we needed
We spent a week -- 2 people in their 50s, 2 in their teens, one in his 40s and one in her 80s. Plus a little chihuahua. There was plenty of room for all of us without feeling crowded. Lots of closet space, so we weren't living out of our suitcases the whole time. That really helped us feel settled and at home. The house is very well kept, with beautiful decorations, and the location was the best. We could walk to the beach in a few minutes, or down to Mr. G's for ice cream and treats, or though the public walkway to a *very* nearby convenience store. The street is quiet, but very close and easy to navigate out to the main highway. Having two people with bad knees in our group, it was helpful to be a short distance from the public beach access that has the ramp (next to Molly's Irish Pub). The loft bedroom with the twin beds is best given to the younger people in your group, as you might expect. Those with bad backs and/or old bodies (like mine) will find the other beds more comfortable. In fact, the king sized bed in the master suite is very, very comfortable and puts my bed at home to shame! We found the kitchen well stocked with pots and pans, utensils, etc. The towels and linens were good, too. There is a grill on the patio, along with table and chairs if you can stand the heat. Plenty of great places to eat out, too. We particularly enjoyed Boardwalk Billy's for seafood, off Hwy 17. Lin and Ken have made this a great place to stay, including brochures for local attractions and guest books from former occupants with additional suggestions. Lin was very responsive to any questions, and I emailed her a few times those first couple of days until I felt like I knew my way around. It was my first time arranging a vacation rental, and they made the process easy with no stress. If you want a lot of hustle and bustle, with grand balconies overlooking the sea, this is not the place for you. If you want a quiet, clean, lovely place with the feeling of home, yet still close to everything you need in a beach town, this is the perfect place for you. After a long day at the beach, or driving through the city with all the crowds, this home really did feel like a little sanctuary, a place to rest and restore before the next day's activities.Jonathan J.

This place was beautiful. My son had a baseball tournament at Ripken experience and we were close to everything staying here. 1 short block to the beach. My parents enjoyed sitting on the patio daily drinking there coffee. Very beautifully decorated.Carol F

Our third year was the best yet.
This was our third year staying in a Holly house, but the first in Holly B. We have enjoyed the location with a quiet neighborhood, friendly residents, close to the beach, and close to great golf, not to mention restaurants. Of course, Lin and Ken have been great to work with, too. They are easy to access, friendly, and quick to respond if there is a problem (not that that happens often). We were familiar with Holly B, but were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived to discover a new (gorgeous) slate floor in the living and dining rooms. The weather was really nice this year, providing us much time to spend on the front porch, which was the main reason we had switched homes this year. The house provides easy access to our car and a comfortable one level accommodation for us with plenty of storage and a nice upstairs area for our guests, giving them privacy when they need it. Our dog, Morgan, also enjoys her stay with easy access to walks on the beach and throughout the neighborhood. Hopefully, next year (yes we have already booked our winter stay) we will find more time to take advantage of the patio and grill. It did provide space for a great St Patty's Day party with most of our friends in NMB. We have now stayed in both of the "Holly" houses and find them to be very comfortable, in a great location, and perfect for our winter home away from home. Don't hesitate to contact Lin and Ken if you have any questions about staying here.Don H.

Our little piece of Heaven
This is our third year staying at this property and each year gets better and better. We absolutely love this house and love dealing with Ken and Lin. The house is very clean and equipped with all the amenities of home. The location to the beach is less than a block and the neighborhood is quiet and quaint. We are already looking to book for next year! Mr G's is a staple for us when we come down. We highly recommend this house and hope you are as blessed as we were. Thank you Lin for all you did for us!! Our four legged girls (Tootsie and Pepper) thank you for letting them stay! See you in 51 weeks!! Missing N Myrtle already!!!!Terri B.

Four years and counting
We must reiterate our accolades from last year pertaining to the house and Lin and Ken. Early this year we did have two issues which they rectified almost immediately. Next year if we have problems with March weather, we will call them because, evidently, they can fix anything. We are certainly looking forward to our fifth winter in a Holly house. We love the set up of the house, the friendliness of the neighbors, the location to beach, golf, restaurants, stores, etc. Not surprisingly, we plan to return next year. PS Our dog still loves the house, too. Don and MaryAnn H.Don Hopkins

We have stayed in many rentals and this is our favorite. Super clean, very comfortable furniture and beds, Spectrum cable and wifi and a quick walk to the beach. Safe parking, quiet little group of houses with lovely neighbors. Cannot tell you how grateful we are to have found this for our time in NMB.Polly A Worf

Best Vacation Ever
This was our first trip to N. Myrtle Beach and we will absolutely be returning!!!! The house is absolutely adorable and clean. It's a quick 1 block walk to the beach, right onto a beach access point!!! Located a maximum of 15 minutes from all the major attractions we were interested in. And the owners were phenomenal to work with. We are looking forward to many more vacations at this property!!!Morgan

Another Great Trip to Holly Drive!!!
This vacation did not disappoint. We had a blast staying at Lin and Ken's place. We absolutely love the North end of Myrtle Beach (Crescent). We have grown to love this beach house, it's very quiet location and the neatness of the little subdivision. So glad we get to bring our dog too! Couldn't go without her. We like being so close to ice cream, the beach and our favorite restaurants. Will definitely keep coming back.Barry Ruppe

A wonderful Oasis!
This is our fourth year staying at Beach Haven and we just love this home. We love dealing with Ken and Lin as they are just plain wonderful. This home is very special to us as my husband has had 2 knee replacements so having the parking next to the house is a blessing. We love and appreciate the new flooring they have had installed and the best part of this house is the location (so quiet and quaint)! You can actually BBQ on their patio and sit and soak up the quiet time (which we so desperately needed!) We loved having the opportunity to spend time with my nephew, niece and children both on the beach and just sitting outside making bubbles with their wands. We felt like kids again! We walked down to Mr. G's and had our usual ice cream treat and sat there and watched the lightening dance across the sky. This house is worth every penny and more. The fact that you can bring your furry children is priceless. Our mini doxies were crated the whole time they were in the house as I believe in taking care of someone else's property. They got to stretch their little legs on the way to Mr. G's and of course around the block. We did lots of eating out and went to Brookgreen Gardens one night to see the lights and took the kids to Medieval Times for a great dinner and show. All in all a fabulous time and great memories made here! I hope you thoroughly enjoy this home as it is sooo convenient to everything!!! So nice to be literally a block and a half from the beach (Priceless)! We will be back. Fiftyone weeks and counting Lin! Missing you already! David , Terri, Tootsie & PepperDavid & Theresa Beach

Wonderful Beach House
Very clean and spacious pet friendly beach house within a short walking distance to Cresent Beach. The neighborhood was safe and peaceful away from the busier main road and hotels. My husband, I and our dog, Scooby, hope to return in the future.Maggie
