"Had booked a stay somewhere else and quickly realized we had to pivot and find somewhere else. Mary was awesome to work with at the last minute and this beachfront home with a pool was beautiful! Everything we needed and more! Will return. Beach wasn’t crowded, pool was clean and refreshing and local restaurants and shops were a perfect mix for our family. This house could easily sleep 8-10ppl. It was such a relaxing experience from start to finish."

The kitchen had everything we needed. The beds very comfortable. We loved the pool. The party lights made it fun to swim at night. The only thing that would make it better would be the addition of a hot tub. My children’s request! Thank you for sharing your property with us and for a wonderful week. The weather was perfect."

"This is the best beach house we've ever rented! The interior is very clean and well designed. There's ample room and multiple bathrooms. The exterior is as nice as the interior! This home looks as nice as you would expect at a nice resort. I could not believe how clean everything was! The “rules” are as expected and not overbearing. The owner did not install cameras like I've seen at other rentals. The owners make it feel like home and even use the term “home” in their welcome materials. This is simply an amazing place and we will definitely return!"

"I don't think we could have enjoyed this home or our time in Holden Beach more. We loved every minute! The direct beach access and private pool are ideal, especially for families with young kids. My only suggestion would be that the rental company actually make up the beds for guest when sheets are being provided. Neither my husband or I were thrilled with having to make up 5 beds as soon as we arrived. Our children were even less enthused because they were ready to hit the beach. We wouldn't hesitate to rent this home again and we are already talking about staying for two weeks next year!"

"Great stay at Called in Sic with family and kids. Only steps away from the beach and with a private pool, everyone got what they wanted. The bathrooms and kitchen were well stocked and renovated. Happy to find that the majority of the deck and porches were actually composite decking so no worry about splinters! Outdoor shower minimized sand making its way into the house. Only complaint was 3 of the porch rocking chairs were broken upon arrival, but there was ample seating otherwise."

"The property was great, although the floor had some very bad spots in the laminate popping up. The gate leading to the pool was broken, which concerned me as we have a 3&2 year old who easily could’ve gotten to the pool. We booked for 7 nights/8days and only got to stay Saturday and Sunday, and left Monday night at 10pm due to mandatory evacuation and traffic on the bridge was already backing up. I did purchase insurance but apparently it was useless. I was told hurricanes weren’t covered, so don’t waste your time buying it, unless you plan to cancel your trip. I reached out to the rental company, and was told they (and owner) didn’t offer refunds or reschedules which i thought was terrible, considering the circumstances of the storm. We spent a substantial amount of money to stay here and never got our money worth. I’ll never stay here again. Hurricane Season or not."

"Called in Sic is a wonderful home. The colors are soothing, the kitchen well equiped. We really loved that the upstairs had a door at the top of the landing, so our grandbabies could rest quietly while we had adult time. We had 8 adults and 4 children in pack-n-plays. Each room has their own bath, and was perfect for my three children and their families. Everything was clean outside at the pool and shower as well. I used the shower daily after the beach, loved it! The pool was serviced on Wednesday during our stay, so was clean all week. I can tell this home has been cared for and loved. Pros: Very clean, great space, comfortable beds, quiet colors, permanent decking, so no splinters. Salt water pool! Cons: Not really anything, other than a concern about all of the gates. The gate latches have rusted, so the gate swings open and can cannot be securely closed. With children, people need to be careful, especially with the pool and ocean close."
