"Serenity by the Sea is a beautiful house. Our group of 11 people, 6 adults and 5 children, had plenty of room to spread out. The beds were comfortable. The entire house seems to have been recently updated. Unfortunately, the walk to the beach was difficult, especially for the older adults and the 3 year old child. Pulling a wagon with beach gear is difficult in the deep sand between the gazebo and the beach. We ended up leaving our wagon tucked behind a dune close to the end of the path and near the beach. We loved everything except the beach access."

"What a lovely place to stay for a week with family. We had so much room! There is a large living area (kitchen, dining, and sofa/tv) that accommodated all ten of us for dinner, games, and movie nights. The back “bar” room was a huge plus. We had some family members who had to work during the vacation, and that room was a perfect fit. (The ice maker and wine fridge in this room were the bomb!) The upstairs den area was a nice place to retreat away from the rest of the group. Super comfy and a beautiful view! The upstairs deck was also a great place to have some quiet time. Speaking of views! Woweeee! Absolutely gorgeous. We spent a ton of time reading, eating, playing games, and drinking wine on the porch. We played and lounged in the pool almost every night. Tip: Bring some pool floaters… loved floating in the pool after a day at the beach. The pool area gets shade at the end of the day… very pleasant to chill there in the evenings. The community is super quiet, and the house is lovely. I cannot say enough about this place. The walk to the beach was a little tough in the heat of July, but well worth it (and really not terrible). The beach was uncrowded, breezy, and so relaxing. We went for walks, searched for shells, fished, and swam to our heart's content. We will definitely be back!"

"Everything was awesome except the walk to the beach. That has been noted several times. It was hard to get little ones to the beach because of the long walk. The pool was awesome and the ocean has a great sandbar. The only thing that the house needs is a new grill. The tvs all worked and it had all the amenities that you needed!"

"The layout of this house was perfect for our family. We enjoyed the pool, the porches, and plenty of common areas. We saw deer, bunnies and lots of tree frogs. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals for 10 people. Thanks to the detached ice maker, we never ran out of ice. We had a great week!"

"This is a beautiful spacious home. The walk to the beach is a little long but 2 houses down there is a nice, fairly level path. Although the pool isn't very large, it is deep and it was very enjoyable the kitchen & living area was wonderful and having a separate/bar room was great too! We really enjoyed the large shaded area by the pool & good parking etc. great home."

"Lovely spacious home! Our family of eight had more than enough room—super comfortable. Spent a lot of time in the pool and walking to the almost private beach. The dunes are gorgeous! Our grown daughters and husbands want to return every year. And the two grandchildren didn't want to leave. It's the perfect place to relax and unwind."

"Perfect floor plan. My husband and I entertained a friend we haven't seen in 2 years and my adult son for 3 days. We had plenty of room for privacy and we loved the kitchen as 3 of us love to cook and there was room for the 3 of us to work in the kitchen at the same time. My husband and I also enjoyed having the house to ourselves for 3 days. It's a peaceful and private part of the beach and will say we feel like we've found the beach snd house we want to come back to at least annually. We live in the NC mountains and it is a long trip to get there but definitely worth it. I hope the homeowners continue to maintain the house in its current quality standards as we would love to continue renting from them. Thank you."

"Proactive vacations did an awesome job keeping us informed and answering our questions following the hurricane. We were not sure we could even go mid week because of storm damage and mandatory evacuation but worked out great and Proactive kept us informed along the way. Serenity by the Sea is beautiful home with tons of space and fantastic views, really nice pool. We had a fantastic week!"

"We have stayed vacationed on Holden Beach many times throughout the past 15 years and have stoat 5 different houses in the Dunescape community. Serenity by the Sea is definitely our favorite die to its location and amenities in the house. Our family of 14 had plenty of room to spread out for alone time but also come together as a group for meals and deck time. The decor is absolutely beautiful, the pool was refreshing and the deck space is abundant. We really appreciated the ample chairs as well so that everyone had a place to sit and relax. I highly recommend this house to others. The only downside is that it does sit back a bit from the ocean and even though it is oceanfront it is quite a trek in the heat if the day so I would suggest a wagon or something to help transport the beach stuff. With that being said my 74 year old mother in law was a trooper and managed to do the walk everyday!"

"Serenity By The Sea is a great beach house rental. Loved the amenities and extras that the owners have added. The walk to the beach is beautiful, yet long and difficult when carrying chairs, umbrellas, etc. Property Management group did a fantastic job with small issues we encountered during our stay. Definitely would consider renting again."

"Our family enjoyed Holden Beach and Serenity by the Sea rental house. The house was roomy and the beds comfortable. Beautiful ocean views and wonderful outdoor pool area. The kitchen is well appointed and the bedrooms were laid out perfectly for our group. Only downside was the long sandy walk to the beach. Was difficult for my parents to join us most days. We ended up driving to a public access so the walk was shorter for them. Overall a wonderful week. Check in and out was easy. We would definitely rent this house and with Proactive again."

"First of all, I would rent this place again. We enjoyed spending the week here. Positives - Very smooth check-in/out procedure, best I've ever used. House in nice condition. Pool area has good shaded areas. Pool was clean. Private and quiet, even though we shared a part of the walkway to the beach with the house next door. Gated development. Negatives - long walk to beach (which we knew about), spotty internet service, wish they included bath linens"
