Description

Vacationing at Hakuna Matata means no worries. Leave all of your cares behind while you vacation in this newly remodeled 2 bedroom 2 bath beachfront PET FRIENDLY coastal retreat! Located on the magical section of the east end of beautiful Holden Beach, where second row is first row, this charming home is only steps away from beach access, with a 180-degree unobstructed view of the ocean. Start your day watching the sunrise, and wind down with the spectacular sunsets.

Located on one level, the main bedroom has a full private bathroom with a walk-in shower and a king-sized bed. There is a private entrance to the large back deck where you can watch the masts of the sailboats as they cruise up and down the intracoastal, with ocean views as well! The second bedroom is ocean-facing with a queen-sized bed, and adjoins the full hall bathroom with shower/tub combo. The living space offers a new comfy L-shaped couch and dining table, with additional seating at the kitchen island. Both bedrooms and the living room have smart TVs – bring your logins to stream whatever you like. The front bedroom also has a DVD/BluRay player and a selection of DVDs for both kids and adults.

The large covered front porch offers a teak dining table as well as a Polywood seating set to relax on as you watch the waves, surfers, fisherman, dolphins and the occasional whale. Stretch out on the glider on the back porch or take a snooze in the shade on the hammock under the back deck. Kick back on the ground level seating set – new for 2024. And what's better, after a day of surf and sand, then a hot/cold water enclosed outdoor shower!

Amenities include stackable washer/dryer, dishwasher, icemaker, Keurig/drip coffeemaker combo, enclosed hot and cold-water outdoor shower, hair dryer, radio, DVD player and DVDs, puzzles, books and fiber optic WIFI. Alexa is there for more music choices, to answer questions about the area, check the tides and weather – whatever! USB chargers are available in the living room and both bedrooms. The newly updated kitchen is fully stocked with a toaster, toaster oven, blender, hand mixer, crock pot, stock pot, ample pots, pans, casseroles and baking sheets along with spices, dishtowels, potholders and dishwasher soap. Starter paper goods are supplied and a "Welcome Basket" will be waiting for you! Hakuna Matata is pet friendly, at the owner's discretion.

While staying at Hakuna Matata be sure to walk to the Golden Holden mailbox of memories on the far east end of the island, search for your favorite seashells or do some surf fishing in front of your house! Come on down to Holden Beach and experience The Island Life!

Lots of deck space, well-appointed kitchen and a cozy kind bed! We had a few rainy days during our visit, but the house had books, games, and of course the covered porch to still enjoy the ocean. We'll definitely come back!"

"You can’t beat the location on this house- ocean view from the comfortable front porch, near 2 Stairways for beach access, no neighbors to the back or one side. Is it fancy? No. But it’s cozy, clean and provided what we needed. One “gripe” would be that the window coverings for the front bedroom might be better if they were blackout- my kids were up early each day because the sun was too bright. To note: This is managed by ProActive Vacations and ALL of my emails from them went to junk despite me marking them as VIP. So I almost missed making a payment and did not think I had received check in instructions. So if you book, keep an eye out for those emails."

"This little beach house located just steps from the Beach was so cute and comfortable for 2 couples. We all enjoyed how close this house was to beach access, a very short walk to the steps over the dunes. We loved the view of the surf from the front porch and living room. We spent almost everyday on the beach except for when Hurricane Ian decided to interrupt our fun. The homeowners came by to secure items before the storm and were very nice and welcoming. All of us agreed that we would definitely stay again. Beds were comfortable, rooms were clean and dishes and pots and pans plentiful. We used the charcoal grill for fresh shrimp. I loved taking showers in the outdoor shower. All in all I would recommend this place to all my friends and family. Holden Beach is a treasure, nice and relaxing and not to touristy."

"Hakuna Matada is an adorable beach cottage that has everything you will need! The house is bright and welcoming with a kitchen that is overly stocked with everything you can think of! New counter tops, backsplash and cabinets. Comfortable king bed in the master with new updated baths! Oh and it does have a stackable washer and dryer! Best part are the front and back decks with an amazing ocean view. If you bring your little doggie both decks have doggie gates! The owners had us a basket full of goodies on the counter and some bottled water in the fridge! So nice! We loved it all! Just cross over the dune walkway and you are at the beach! Ohh, also Proactive Rental is wonderful to work with! Always friendly and helpful!"

"Been going to Holden Beach since early 1990's. This was our first time on the "east" side. We loved the grass around the house so we can let our dog have bathroom breaks as needed (and there weren't any stickers to hurt her feet). The house was smaller than what we usually rent but it's only the two of us plus dog. In comparison to the other house we've rented the last 10 years on Holden, Hakuna Matata had new sturdy stairs, great remodeled interior, a fully equipped kitchen for a week of cooking, TV remotes (with new batteries) that were labelled, and window blinds that were easy to work. The floors were all tile or wood (better than old, dirty carpet). The front door had an electronic ring lock which eliminated keys that we had in the other rentals. The front door/porch had two tubs with water to wash off shoes/feet/dog paws of sand before entering the house. We had a welcome basket of goodies (1st time we got that) and extras like paper towels, dish soap, TP, spices galore, and sponges to wash dishes. The beds were large and comfortable for the 4 days we were there. We're not fans of leather couches but we covered them with blankets and/or sheets to protect and keep them clean. The deck furniture on the front porch was nice as you relax and watch the ocean. Overall, considering the price and amenities, this house deserves strong consideration for your visit to Holden Beach."

"While overall the property is good enough, this property has huge potential to be a great, quaint little place for a small family (2 parents and 2 kids who don't mind sleeping in the same bed). Definitely some "handyman specials" all around the property but I guess if it stays rented it doesn't really matter. You can't beat eating meals from the porch with unobstructed views and sounds of the ocean with the access to the beach for the price. Beach can get a bit crowded right in front since there are 2 beach accesses on both sides of the block. While small, I wish things were better laid out to make things more functional inside. For example, not having outlets on both sides of the bed in the master or just simply adding more hooks in the master bath. The kitchen is tiny and lacks prep space for meals, so maybe having less cluttered shelving would provide more storage space to free up the island for prep. The property wasn't the cleanest, I'll put that on the property management company, the furniture could use some refreshing as well. The porch couch cushions were so dirty that I needed to wash them before I would even let my family sit on them. Ocean Blvd Coffee ice coffees (~~2.75miles round-trip) provided motivation for some morning exercise and support local business. The outdoor shower is awesome...used that almost everyday after the beach! The charcoal grill sucks especially since it's way too windy all day to light it. EV owners: 110v charging is easily accessible from the storage room where the grill is kept. I had to plug in the outlet near the floor joist where the tankless water heater is located. The outlet near the door wouldn't work for my Tesla plug nor the 220v located in there too."

The 2 bedroom/2 bath set up is very nice. Our first visit to Holden Beach and we will be back! And, the rental company was wonderful to deal with. In all my years of renting vacation homes, they stand out as the best. Our oven broke and the coffee pot wasn't usable and they solved both issues within hours. Will definitely use them again."
