Welcome Ya'll! We invite you to join us in celebrating our 53nd year in the family business here on Holden Beach! We are very blessed and thankful for all that we have accomplished over the years.

Our company is a 4th generation family business that began in 1961 with my parents, Lois & Drew Griffin. I have five children, 3 stepsons, six grandchildren (so far), and 2 great grandsons, 6 yrs & 3 years old! How blessed I am!

Our staff is the best ever. We know that extraordinary customer service is our bottom line and pride ourselves on solving problems quickly, cordially and professionally. Just good ole southern hospitality!

All of our cottages are furnished to their owner's tastes. Linens are NOT INCLUDED.

Our office is on the Island under our beautiful bridge. At the foot of the bridge, turn left. Go 1 block to Jordan Blvd., turn left. We're the 2nd building on the right. We are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., 6 days a week, year round and Sunday by appointment or necessity. We are also the Holden Beach Post Office Contract Station (since 1965).

IF YOU CAN'T COME
If you must cancel your reservations, we will try very hard to re-rent that cottage for you. However, unless the entire week(s) is re-rented, your deposit cannot be refunded. If we are successful, a 10% cancellation fee will be charged.

NEXT YEAR
Guests renting the same house from year to year have until they check out to re-reserve that cottage, with a $25.00 non refundable and nontransferable reservation fee. If the house becomes unavailable, we will do our best to help you find another cottage. If a house is for sale, we must reserve the right to show it with proper notice to you.

RESERVATIONS AND CONFIRMATIONS
We will send you a letter in December requesting a 1/2 deposit of the basic rent in January for your rental cottage. A receipt and confirmation letter will be sent to you when your deposit is received. Deposits cannot be transferred to another house. Your balance is due in full 30 days before you arrive. We will not remind you, so please make a note. We do not accept credit cards, however, personal checks are fine. State and local taxes (now 12.75%) will be added to your balance. (All deposits will be held in an interest bearing escrow account with interest earned by agent. All trust monies are deposited with BB&T.)

WHEN YOU ARRIVE
Check-in time is 3 p.m. or after. When you arrive, come directly to our office. Do not go to the cottage. This will delay your check- in! Keys may be left out for late arrivals, if balance is paid in full.

Let us know of any problems in the cottage as soon as you arrive, or by 10 a.m. the next morning. If we don't hear from you, we will consider everything is fine. We respond quickly to any problems, but cannot guarantee repairs will be made during your stay due to service personnel workload and parts available. No refunds or rebates will be made for malfunctions of any appliances or equipment.

NUMBER OF GUESTS
With the description of each cottage, we state the bed sizes and maximum number of people allowed in that house. This is the maximum, not including infants and toddlers. Overcrowding will not be tolerated. RV's, campers, etc. cannot be attached to the cottages or used for sleeping, by Town ordinance. Parking is very limited.

WHEN YOU LEAVE
You must vacate the non-maid service cottages before 11 a.m. When you bring us your keys everyone must be out of the cottage. We check the house after you leave to be sure everything is in good order for the next guests. You will be charged for things left undone and damage to cottage, in or out. If you do not want to clean, you should arrange and pay for maid service before you leave. Cottages, that include maid service check out before 10 a.m. We will give you a list of what maid service includes, and you will be charged for anything left over and above this list. (Maid service does not mean total disregard for the property during your stay. We will not tolerate this.)

WHAT TO BRING
Bring your sheet sets, towels, blankets, paper products, cleaning supplies, beach chairs and fishing rods. Most kitchens are well equipped, but if you have a favorite frying pan, etc, bring it! If you can't find something you need, call our office. Some of us probably have one!

MAN'S BEST FRIEND
Some of our cottages allow you to bring your dog with you. You must have permission in advance from us and know our town rules on leash law, “pick up”, and hours allowed on beach. A no-pet house means just that and you and your pet will be asked to leave immediately with all monies forfeited.

IF YOU SMOKE
Please choose a cottage whose owner does not restrict smoking. We have owners who request no smoking in their home. Honor their request. However, we cannot guarantee any house being smoke free or free from allergy causing agents.

WHAT YOU CAN’T DO
1. Locked closets, utility or storage areas are owners personal property. Respect these areas, they are not part of your rental!
2. Never grill on the decks of a cottage. Grill only in the yard or designated area provided. You will be charged for any damage.
3. Fireworks are against the law on Holden Beach. Fire can result. Although fireworks are sold in neighboring towns, we do not allow them on our island. Prosecution can result.
4. Phones - No long distance calls can be made from cottage phones except with credit cards or 800 numbers. Most cottages provide internet service of some kind. Please do not abuse these amenities.

MESSAGES AND MAIL
Most houses have their own phones, but you can pick up messages during normal business hours at our office. Emergencies should be routed thru our Brunswick County 911 Center (910-253-7490). Know your correct address when calling. This will help them find you. We are also the Holden Beach Post Office Contract Station (since 1965). If friends want to write you during your vacation, have them use 108 Jordan Blvd., Holden Beach, NC 28462. Your mail will come to our office for you to pick up. Most cottages do not have mail boxes, so any unclaimed mail would be returned to sender. Mail goes out every day at 12:30 p.m., except Sunday.

NON-FAMILY GROUPS, ETC.
None of the cottages shown are available for rent to house parties, sororities, high-school or college groups, chaperoned or non-family groups, church groups, or other large groups. If property is rented to any of the above without our knowledge, admittance will not be permitted and all monies forfeited. HOLDEN BEACH PROPERTIES is not responsible for any circumstances beyond our control, such as disturbances on nearby properties, beach conditions, construction or acts of nature, etc.

REFUND POLICY
We reserve the right to refund deposits, refuse rental or discontinue occupancy if, in the agency's opinion, same is detrimental to the premises. No refunds shall be given if occupancy is terminated as a result of a violation of our rental regulations or state laws. Our agency will make every effort to ensure that accommodations selected will be the one offered; however, should the owner sell the premises prior to the dates of tenancy use, or move in a year round resident or otherwise prohibit the agent from making the premises available, the agent may suggest comparable accommodations, for the same period.

Every effort has been made to insure that information provided on this website is accurate. No misrepresentation is intended. We cannot be responsible for website errors, changes in furnishings, equipment or rates as originally reported by the owners prior to press time.

By North Carolina law, we must inform you that HOLDEN BEACH PROPERTIES is employed by and represents the property owner.
