"We have been searching for our new favorite beach house for years (since our old favorite was sold) - we have found it! Wait N Sea has everything you need for a great vacation! You're steps away from the beach, several places to sit and read or just sit and watch the ocean or sit and have a meal (inside or out), great deck (covered & not covered) and screened in porch. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is so well equipped! Great views! The living room furniture is comfortable, the house is clean, its decorated so you KNOW you're at the beach. There was even a deck box full of beach toys, chairs, etc. The owners are super friendly & kind and take such good care of their place. I know I didn't want to leave after my week was up and I've already rebooked for 2023:-) This place is seriously everything you could need for a great vacation!"

"My family and I have been returning year after year to Shell Seekers. The location is wonderful and the house is just the right size for us. I have rented homes at Holden Beach for years and absolutely LOVE renting from Proactive Rentals. They are absolutely amazing! If there's a problem, they are always quick to fix it and the homes are always clean and nice. This home does need some updates, as other reviewers mentioned. There is definitely some damage in the home this year that we didn't notice in years past, such as a hole in the floor entering one of the bedrooms, a lot of broken/loose door knobs, a broken vent.. However, for us, those types of issues can be expected with so many people in and out of a home and in no way ruins any of the fun for us! For us, we will continue to visit this home every year that we can and make memories with our kids and family!"

"Enjoyed my stay. However, the house needs TLC. The beds were very uncomfortable. Felt as if the bed springs were attacking me. However, the house was very clean. The location was great and so was the front porch. With the addition of new mattresses, would rent again."

"A trip to Holden Beach is always special, so we enjoyed our week overall. But we had to stay outdoors almost 24/7 because of the mouse-sized roaches and very mildewy smell. The hurricane has a lot to do with it, I'm sure, but the cottage was almost uninhabitable. We managed to spray for bugs, which kept them mostly hidden. Dishes and pots and pans were old and grimy, and beds were so uncomfortable. This house house has the potential to be perfect, but with old and dirty furnishings it's hard to relax and enjoy any time indoors."

"Loved the location and beach access, Food lion maybe a 5 minute drive. It is a older house but everything worked well except the door on the beach front side, wouldn't unlock from the outside but was fine once unlocked. The bed's are kind of hard at least for me, "But i'm spoiled by what I sleep on at home, never seem to find something comfortable when I stay elsewhere" Other than that had plenty of water pressure and hot water good AC, big kitchen with brand new stove, overall very comfortable. Didn't catch anything to brag about but caught fish every time I went out regardless of the tide or the time of day. It was a great weeks stay and would definitely rent this place again."

"The house was clean (housekeeper did a great job!) and the beach was nice but the house needs some major updates! Kitchen could have been stocked better with things like knives, a mixer with all parts, etc. and the dishes didn’t feel very clean when the bottom cabinets don’t have shelves so pots are basically in floor. Beds need updating, mattress are older and a little worn. Front screen door leaks during rain and back door screen is torn up. Outdoor furniture is worn. Overall the location was good and the beach was nice but it was a little less than what we expected."
