Hello everyone, We wanted to announce the launch of our new Alan Holden Vacations rentals website! We upgraded our website with an total makeover to make it more user friendly with a lot more features. We can still be found at the same web address Alan Holden Vacations and we think you will love it. Our new website now allows you to book a rental property, digitally sign the lease agreement instead of waiting for it to get mailed to you, and also log in at any time to make payments toward your vacation. You will also be able to see what payments have been made. Another cool function we added is that on any and every house we have, you can “Like” it and it will be added to your Facebook profile page for your friends and family to see. You will also be able to pin a house photo on “Pintrest“! Be sure to follow us on Facebook We post photos and videos of the beach almost daily so please check us out! Hope to see you back here at Holden Beach this summer! Sales on the island are picking up slowly so if you are thinking about buying a home come see us at RE/MAX at the Beach!
It is hard to believe that the summer months are fast approaching. It seems like summer 2010 just ended. Time to get those beach chairs, umbrellas and coolers out of the garage again! It has been a long, wet, cold winter here on Holden Beach this year. We are all glad that we can get out of the house and get some fresh air and maybe mow the grass. Ooops! Did I just really say mow the grass? I don’t enjoy mowing the grass a whole lot, but it is nice to get outdoors and enjoy smelling the crisp salt air again.
Over the past few weeks the traffic here on the island has been steadily increasing little by little on the weekends. Today is Good Friday (Easter Weekend) and the traffic has REALLY picked up at the gas stations and grocery stores in the last few hours. The weather looks like it will be in upper 70’s to mid-80’s over the next several days. The visitors look anxious and excited to be back at one of their favorite destinations and we are so glad to have everyone back.
Don’t forget about Days at the Dock on May 7, 2011. Started in the 1980′s, the Springtime festival called “Day at the Dock” host over 50 arts and crafts vendors and a dozen food vendors. This year the event is being held May 7th, with vendors selling their wares from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm under the Holden Beach Bridge.
Day at the Docks is FREE to the public with FREE parking and FREE live entertainment all day. This year there will be a King Mackerel Fishing Tournament, inflatable rides for the kids, huge kites flying overhead and a horseshoe tournament.
Around 3 pm (depending on the tides), the world famous “Bopple Race” takes place. Buy your “Bopples” from any merchant prior to or at the festival for a dollar. The Holden Beach Mayor Alan Holden and fellow commissioners toss the “Bopples” from the atop the Holden Beach bridge and let the currents carry them toward the designated finish line. If your Bopple is first or second to cross the finish line, you win a handsome prize. What’s a “Bopple?” Sorry, you’ll have to attend to find that out.
