If you don’t feel like leaving your vacation rental, then why not bring some board games or card games with you on vacation.

2019 will be here before you know it so, now is the time to plan your next family vacation. The temps might be cold outside right now, but soon it will be perfect beach weather. Take advantage of planning your next vacation to Holden Beach early to get the most out of your vacation. It’s always nice to have your vacation planned so that when it’s vacation time, you can enjoy.


The first thing that you will want to get a handle on is your budget. Planning a vacation can take a lot of time, but knowing you can afford it helps. With a little bit of budgeting and knowing when you’d like to go can take a bit of financial stress off your plate. To get things started, have a family meeting to see what everyone would like to do on vacation. For example, if you’d like to go out to eat a few nights, then add that into the budget. Purchasing gift certificates before you leave for vacation will help keep you on track. You will be able to relax a little more when you are on your vacation.

One of the many advantages of booking your next vacation to Holden Beach now is you will have a plenty of vacation homes to choose from. With many locations all over Holden Beach, you are able to find the perfect home that suits your family’s needs. No matter what you are looking for whether it’s oceanfront or second row home, we have the perfect home just for you. Here are a few other advantages of choosing a vacation rental rather than staying in a hotel:

  • Location – We are able to offer more options than a hotel can offer. If you’d like an oceanfront home rather than the “standard” view, then it’s yours.
  • Kitchens – All of our vacation homes offer you the perfect kitchen for your vacation needs. Here you will be able to fix all your meals for a big family or small family.
  • Size – When you vacation, size does matter when it comes to vacation rentals. Instead of having a small hotel room where everyone has to share the same room, you will be able to accommodate your whole family.
  • Amenities – Many of our homes have pools, hot tubs, outside grills, and other fun things for you to do to make your vacation more relaxing. Vacationing in a home is so much more pleasant than a hotel and you won’t miss out on the fun.

Plan Your Activities

When it comes to planning out your activities for the whole week, we know that many families like to think ahead. Sometimes your plans can be hindered if it rains, so always having a backup plan can help. There are so many different activities in the area for you and your family to take advantage of. From heading over to the Shallotte River Swamp Park to going Deep Sea Fishing, there is something for everyone to do. If you’d like to head into Wilmington, it’s a short 40-minute drive to explore there or maybe head to Myrtle Beach which is 40 minutes for more fun. Planning these activities ahead of time will help you save time and possibly money in the long run.

Now that you and your family have come up with a plan to go ahead and plan your 2019 family vacation, it’s time to book it. With the ease of being able to book your vacation online, we want to help you make this vacation the best it can be.

We hope that you and your family will be able to find the perfect Holden Beach vacation rental for your next vacation and look forward to seeing you soon!
