Description

Welcome to "Sandy Dunes", a Newly Constructed, beautiful custom built oceanfront home. You will enjoy spectacular unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean in this 8 bedroom 6.5 bath home, which will comfortably accommodate up to 19 people. Your private 23 x 12 ft dune side pool is perfect for relaxing and entertaining, and a private beach walkway puts you just steps away from the ocean's edge. You will appreciate the convenience of having an elevator that takes you from the parking area to the 1st & 2nd floors. The first level boasts a beautiful open floor plan with a large living and dining area overlooking the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. You'll be amazed at the views from the huge ocean front covered balcony, just off the main living area. A spectacular gourmet kitchen is very well stocked and invites family and friends to gather around the large bar area including a wine chiller, as well as in a lovely dining area, which seats 14-16 people comfortably. Also located on the 1st floor is a bedroom on the street side with a private balcony. Off the main living area you will find a full sized laundry room with an extra ice maker. A large pantry provides plenty of extra storage as well as a secondary fridge/freezer for your convenience.

This level offers a beautiful covered beach front sundeck and 4 additional bedrooms. On the top floor you will find a recreational area with 2 futons and a private uncovered balcony overlooking the ocean, as well as the remaining 3 bedrooms. You will appreciate the rare treat of having all beds made up and ready upon your arrival.

Enjoy the convenience of having three refrigerators in which to stock up for your stay along with an extra ice maker. There are various decks and covered porches from which you'll enjoy taking in the views, watching the coastal wildlife, dining, entertaining and gazing up at the stars. An extra large charcoal grill is available for your use alongside the pool deck, and an outdoor hot/cold shower is available to wash the sand away at the end of the day.

"We have had family reunions annually for over 4 decades. This is one of the top locations not just due to size and location (which can be tricky for our large group), but because the house is solidly built (no creaky stairs), comfy mattresses, nice layout, abundant fridge space... the FIRST ice maker that could keep up with our large group! And a super nice and responsive team to handle service requests (we had one non urgent issue due to a storm which was handled right away!). Definitely one of the best experiences and while we usually move around to new places everyone said they would be thrilled to stay here again."

"We have had an annual multigenerational trip to Holden Beach for 30 years. The “kids” are adults now so we'd outgrown some of our previous favorite homes. Sandy Dunes was amazing. It checked EVERY box. Ice machine, plenty of fridge space (s), WELL equipped kitchen, comfy beds, a/c and great fans kept the house at a great temp. The elevator worked well for our older “matriarchs” and moving in/out and groceries. Will definitely book again if our numbers require this many bedrooms. The property managers quick to respond to our few minor issues. The one negative; there was no high chair as listed in amenities but owner offered to reimburse us if we rented one."

"Great house for all of us. Owners continue to update things every year with nice furnishings and good kitchen supplies. Only complaint are several of the mattresses really sag and need to be replaced: 2nd floor Oceanside room without the balcony and two bedrooms on third floor: the middle room and the room closest to the bath. Hope those can be replaced before we come for our 6th year in this house next year!"

"This home was fabulous! It was comfortable, clean and very spacious. We had 8 adults and 4 children. The extras were awesome, refrigerators, ice maker, kitchen was fully stocked with whatever you would need, hooks behind the doors for hanging, tv's everywhere, bedrooms were very spacious, loved the open kitchen, living area and dining area. Beautiful furniture and accent pieces for a nice homey feeling. Deck areas were awesome, tables, chairs and a hose or shower to rinse off. Walk over the dunes to the beach was easy. Pool was on the smaller side but we weren't all in the pool at the same time anyway, so it worked perfectly fine for our needs. The location was great and there are sidewalks to ride bikes if you are thinking about bringing them. Highly, highly recommend this house for your vacation, you won't be disappointed!"

"This is our 2nd year staying at Sandy Dunes and it is an amazing house for hosting large families. We have 83 year old grandparents down to 5 year old great grandchildren and this house served everyone's needs. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to make a wonderful meal after a full day on the beach. We cooked every night and we always had what we needed. We loved the front porch to watch the beautiful sunrises and the 3rd floor deck to watch the spectacular sunsets. The pool was a fun alternative to the beach for the little ones. Overall, we love this house. My only recommendation would be for a outdoor shade on either side of the beach side main floor deck. After the sun rises, it blinds your eyes for most of the day if you sit on the porch, which several of our party did. Thank you Proactive Vacations for a wonderful week full of family memories!"

"Sandy Dunes was the perfect setting for our large family of 11 adults and 3 children under two. The home is comfortable and even more beautiful than the pictures, and we had plenty of space to spread out. Our family enjoys cooking, and the kitchen was spacious and well-equipped. Being beach-front was a huge plus with little kids, and the pool was also well-enjoyed. We can't wait to come back!"

The kitchen is really well-equipped and we love the huge dining table — we comfortably got 16 of us every night for dinner and then games. And the kids love the pool. Highly recommend this house."

"Absolutely perfect house for our group of 16. House was perfectly laid out. Our favorite thing was that we were so close to the ocean we could see the kids on the beach every window. We cooked every night and everything you could think of they had. Everything was super clean too. We brought our own tp, soaps, dish clothes, and hot pads and the house already had them. Unsure if that is always the case or not but it was a nice bonus. Would definitely stay again."

"House is wonderful! Great amenities, plenty of space. A few cleaning supplies would be great with kids and grandkids. It's wonderful to have beds made when you arrive so all you do is unload and relax. Only snafu was the pool. We paid to heat, someone set the timer wrong so it was warm upon arrival but quite chill until pool company came back on Tuesday. It was nice and warm Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The kids really enjoyed late afternoon swims after being at the beach. Same time next Sandy Dunes, thanks for the memories!"

The 8 bedrooms were a perfect configuration for the 19 of us, from 3 years to 72 years and everything in between. The common space was very easy for groups and the porches were wonderful. We did wish the pool were a little bigger, but that was the only negative. Great time in a great space!"

"I never write reviews, but would like to take the time. This property is everything as listed. We fit a family of 14 in here comfortably! House was spotless, very well stocked. We chose this property because it was in the middle of our families. Two families came from Fl and one from NJ. Holden Beach was different for us from FL because there is NO 'entertainment' near by. However, our family did enjoy eating all of the meals at 'home' and the family time it created by staying 'home'. Lots of laughs! The property is right on the beach, and the pool is perfect! (and warm!)"

"We loved staying at Sandy Dunes. It worked really well for our large group. I thought the space was well thought out -- and really appreciated the extra refrigerators, and the ice machine. Loved the large dining table, which allowed us all to eat together. The way the couches and living area was arranged was perfect for our evening game sessions! One thing we noticed was that the house was extremely well sound-insulated between floors, which made nap time for the baby in the group (and the late sleepers) much more peaceful and possible! We appreciated this thoughtfulness. An issue came up early into our stay -- a misunderstanding between us and the property management about certain amenities -- that could have seriously derailed our whole trip. But Proactive Properties, the owners and I were able to come to an agreement that felt good to everyone, which was such a huge relief. I appreciated their willingness to work it out so readily. As a bonus, we had the experience of seeing a turtle nest hatch! A highlight of our stay there. Thanks for everything -- would stay here again in a heartbeat."

"I can't express how wonderful this home was and how ProActive took care of our every need. Kitchen had everything you need to cook for a large family. Several refrigerators on multiple floors were a great addition. The beds were very comfortable and were made when we arrived! The deck was large a perfect for gathering and eating. The pool was in a great location- out of the sun late in the day but situated nicely for sunbathing. This home has it all. We loved it so much- we booked it again for next year. We have been coming to Holden Beach with same family for over 40 years. This is our favorite HOME. ProActive made check-in a breeze. We even talked to two groups of people on beach that asked about the house- both said they were going to rent!"

"Overall this place checked all the boxes plus some! Plenty of space for everyone (4 families- 14 ppl), kitchen was completely stocked, lots of refrigerators and ice maker was huge!, entertainment areas were nice and huge deck for storing beach equipment or hanging out after the kids went down. Only suggestions I would give would be to upgrade the TVs in the main living room space (need to be larger), multiple washer dryer combos (already slated to be installed according to the notice posted in the kitchen) and a larger trash can to accommodate kitchen size bags.
