Quiet but still close.
This home was very quiet and off the major roads and yet it was very close to the beach. It was just a short, 5-minute drive to Holden Beach and even closer to the grocery store and shops/restaurants. There was plenty of room for all of us inside and it had cable/satellite TV. We also loved that we were able to bring our dog. The other great thing was that the owners allow for a rental period of less than one week. We didn’t find any other properties that fit our schedule so well. Unfortunately, we also experienced two major issues. The first, which I've discussed with the owner, is a very strong sulfur (rotten eggs) smell coming from all of the sinks and showers. I addressed this with the owner and the response I got was that it’s normal. They have installed a water softener and they also have that odor at their residence which is on the same property. That may be true, but I have used well water many times and have not had this experience before. It was so nauseating that we actually showered and ate all our meals at a nearby property rented by the rest of our family. The second issue was not discovered until we started to pick up/clean up in preparation for check out. We found mouse/rat droppings in the bedroom furthest from the road and also in the kitchen. The home seemed very clean aside from that so we were surprised and disappointed to see that. I am only writing this review because I wish we would’ve been able to read one like it before we booked. That way, we could make a more informed decision.
