Lovely Thanksgiving :) LOVE this house! This is our second stay in this home. Absolutely nothing is lacking. Beautiful views from the living room and dining area. You can see the beach from this lovely and tastefully decorated second row home. It is just a few blocks once you go over the bridge, so its very close to everything. The kitchen has everything needed from a Keurig, a crock pot, a KitchenAid mixer, a Cuisinart coffee pot to cabinets full of dishes and every utensil and kitchen appliance ever needed. The bedrooms have beds with the best of mattresses and flat screen televisions. Bathrooms are fully stocked with towels and under each sink are baskets of items that you sometimes forget when packing. The house is large enough that it was very comfortable for us all (8 adults & 4 children). The owners are very accessible (and kind) and made sure our stay was a blessing in every way. We will be back!!!!

A little bit of heaven (family style) One of the best places on Holden beach. They say second row but I would consider it on the beach. Walk is directly across the street. Views are unobstructed from windows and porch. 5 bedrooms with 4 1/2 baths give great privacy and suite like atmosphere. Large bedrooms with plenty of living space give everyone room to spread out . Went with my family son, daughter and their spouses, And daughter in laws parents and grandparents. Fun group time with privacy if you wanted it. The owner has done an excellent job with amenities...nothing lacking. Highly recommend this gorgeous house for all age groups.

Incredible Beach Home, Amazing Owners!Wow, what an incredible home! Cheryl and her family have certainly applied that special "C" touch! Exceptional attention to detail throughout! We were so very blessed, we did not lack for a thing!! Not only was the home beautifully decorated in a beach theme, it was "spic and span" clean, the kitchen was very well appointed, beds extremely comfortable as well as some very thoughtful surprise touches! We fell in love with this perfect quiet, family beach as we crossed the bridge and viewed the intercoastal waterway as well as the ocean at one glance! We will certainly be back!! Thank the Lord for this wonderful family and the great job they have done on this Holden Beach vacation home. You will NOT be disappointed!

Very relaxing vacation! Our vacation delivered everything as promised! We had 2 families- 4 adults,6 kids. Plenty of room for all of us. The house is very clean, beautifully decorated, and comfortable. Not having to worry about bringing linens, or cleaning at the end was a big plus for us. The beach access is so close, and our section of the beach was not very crowded. There are several restaurants, an ice cream and Italian ice shop within walking distance. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us!

The Wedding party This was the absolutely perfect place for us to stay! The owners were extremely helpful and generous from the beginning to end. You can tell this was someone's home-the attention to detail is exquisite. Each bedroom has plenty of room and is decorated to a tee. It was so awesome that each bedroom upstairs had it's own spacious bathroom. We came to have a wedding on the beach(my youngest son) and everything was just perfect, including the weather. The kitchen space was wonderful for baking and cooking for the reception-well stocked. We all truly hope we will be able to come back sometime when we can just kick back on the awesome porch in the rocking chairs and enjoy the beach more. We would highly recommend this house to everyone-you will NOT be disappointed.

Reunion Get-Away We had a great experience The Cs by the Sea. The house was amazing! Perfect for the five couples that got together for a last summer adventure. It was really close to the beach which was perfect. We spent alot of time on the front porch rocking in the rocking class!

Holden Beach Fan Richmond, Va.
The C's by the Sea Beach House Review My family spent a very enjoyable, relaxing week at this house in Holden Beach, NC. The large, well-outfitted kitchen and dining area were great for cooking and family meals. Everyone enjoyed the large bedrooms and individual baths, as well as the sought-after lazy boy recliners in the living room! The quick beach access was very convenient and the small commercial area of HB was just a quick walk or bike ride away. We enjoyed the bike riding all week in the quiet residential areas between the beach and the Intercoastal Waterway. We enjoyed the front deck in the mornings, evenings, and for meals. A relaxing, enjoyable family beach week at this house.

Guest Book Reviews
Many of our guests have left us wonderful comments in our guest books
over the years. 
Here are few dear and near to our hearts.

The house and the location of your house was fantastic. God Bless you and your home! It was great and sunny all week. We discussed the name of our future grand baby, biked from one end of the island to the other, corn hole tournaments, had great dinners, all the kids can cook, some of the kids can dance and some can float. We felt our daughters baby kick, played spades and contract rummy tournaments. The Mc"s & The W's families

Hot! Hot! Hot! but we went swimming, collected shells, sat on he porch at night, went bike riding and had a great time!

Our time was fast, but the memories made in your home and on the beach will last forever. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We hope to be back again! "At the beach, life is different. Time doesn't move hour to hour but to mood to movement. We live by the currents play by the tides and follow the sun."

Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. It is obvious that much love went into it. Because it is your home, it has all the touches that make it a comfortable and inviting place to stay. We hope to return soon!The C's & M's

The little details the owner of the house added to welcome guests mattered to us!!! A beautiful home atmosphere, gifts to welcome us, fresh towels and even a call to wish the men a belated Father's Day all making our week all the more special. To God be the glory for this awe-inspiring goodness, His creation, the amazing people he has placed in our lives, and the rest and memories we shared this week!Stephanie & Family

horoughly enjoyed our visit @ your beautiful home.

Thanks for lending us your beautiful house one more time.....and many to come. The "C" sisters with spouses Thanks & God Bless! The "C" Families

Cheryl, From the moment we entered the house, we felt at home. We didn't disturb the birds nest on the inside stairwell, either. From the children touching their first sharks to playing in the sandbox, watching sea turtles being born, to crabs making their nests on the beach, this experience was lovely. Too often, we hurry through our lives without much appreciation for the beauty around us. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to get recommend with life. :) PS Next Year? Please! The "T","S" & "M" Families

We have been coming to Holden Beach for our family vacation for 10 years now. This is our first time in your lovely home and we truely enjoyed it! Thank you so much for your hospitality! We have not felt at home anywhere else at Holden Beach :) Thank you!!!
