Good Word About Us

Stella Putnam 08/08/2019

Our family has been coming to Holden Beach for 20 years and we have used many rental companies and stayed in various properties. Ocean’s Edge and Proactive Vacations made this year’s stay one of our best. We love the East End of Holden Beach- it is not as crowded and much closer to everything. The house was perfect for our family. There were plenty of spaces for our 3 grandchildren to play without being under our feet. They loved all staying in the “BunkBed” room together- what a treat for them!! The house was clean and neat and very comfortable. Access to the beach was a short walk, which was nice when my 86 year old mother came for the day. All of our dealings with Proactive were good- they answered all of our questions and were very helpful. We loved not having to go by their office to pick up a key. We reserved this house for the same week next year. We are looking forward to it. ***** 5 stars all the way around!!!!!

My family and I have rented many vacation cottages/homes over the years including a number at nearby Ocean Isle and also on the Outer Banks. We rank Algies Love in the upper tier. It was clean, well-equipped, well-maintained and comfortable. We were a group of 6 adults and two kids, but easily could have accomodated a couple of more people. We really liked the big dining table next to the windows facing the beach. It has fantastic balconies on both floors and when we were there (late July) you could read all day on the balcony if you wanted– the sun never drove you out… partly because the beach faces more south than east. We thought this cottage was just the right distance from the beach, with a wonderful board walk, with nice sittting area leading from the unit to the beach. We felt we had a lot of privacy. We also liked it that is has an enclosed outdoor shower under the unit. Proactive Vacations (the property managers) was easy to deal with, both by phone and e-mail. The owner kindly called us while we were there to make sure we were having a good experience and to take suggestions. Holden Beach is really quiet and family-friendly, with a good grocery store, restaurants, and the usual beachwear shops. We saw sea turtles hatch on the beach just a few units away from ours(!)

Our family loved this house and had a great time. The process of checking in and out with Proactive was extremely easy. We hated to leave and will definitely be back again in the future!

Serenity By The Sea is a great beach house rental. Loved the amenities and extras that the owners have added. The walk to the beach is beautiful, yet long and difficult when carrying chairs, umbrellas, etc. Property Management group did a fantastic job with small issues we encountered during our stay. Definitely would consider renting again.

 

Ginni Mastin 7/20/2019

The real estate company was great to deal with we needed something during our stay and they responded very quickly! The house was great and very well equipped and clean!!!!

 

Debra Holtz 7/15/2019

All I can say is Lobster Lair was awesome,beautiful, comfortable, and not far from beach! Proactive vacation’s people Are Awesome!

 

Teri Slentz 6/23/2019

This house was amazing! It had enough room for adults and the kids. Very clean and the views of the sunset were beautiful. Would rent this house again in the future. The property managers were awesome to work with as well!! Holden beach is the best family beach we have visited💕

This was our first time using Proactive Realty. This was my 11th trip to Holden Beach and I was incredibly impressed with their services. The house was well-maintained and perfect for our family of four. Decent walk to the beach. Nice kitchen. Everyone had enough space, either together or on our own. Thanks!!

 

Bernadette Harris 6/01/2019

We had a great stay. The house is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Loved that all four bedrooms had king size beds and private bathrooms. The oceanfront location was fabulous and sitting just off the bridge made it convenient to everything – park, restaurants, and shops. Proactive Vacations were great to deal with. All in all a perfect week!

 

Rebecca Wood 6/02/2019

Shell Yeah is a cute salt box bungalow that is the perfect size and location. Cute and cozy with everything you need and nothing that you don’t. We love this rental and highly recommend! Proactive is fabulous to work with as well. Thank you for a great stay!

 

Marie Walker 6/02/2019

Our stay at Holden Hands was great. The house is beautiful with nice views, well stocked kitchen and very clean. The short walk to the beech is easy. We had rented a beech house at Emerald Isle and 3 days before check in was told the place was not safe to rent. We were scrambling to find a rental over the busy Memorial Holiday week and the staff at Proactive were so easy to work with and accommodating to our requests. Will be renting again from them in the future.

 

Duane Yoder 5/28/2019

Well maintained home. Proactive is great with communication and handling the check-in/out process. Recommend using Proactive for your vacation rental.

 

Mildred Steed 5/21/2019

Location was amazing, loved being oceanfront. Chris made a courtesy call to see if everything was to our liking, so we asked for a blind be placed in the family room and that he fix the door lock (afraid we may accidentally break key off in lock). These are things we would not have troubled him about, but he was more than accommodating. Chris and his maintenance team were beyond exceptional. Anytime we had an issue they were quick to resolve them.

 

David Smith 5/08/2019

The Blue Turtle home is a very clean, comfortable, well equipped oceanfront house we would stay in again. The rental staff was easy to deal with and check in was simple. All of the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The house is easy to find and has easy access to the bridge and walking distance to Castaways.

 

Luke Stauffer 5/07/2019

This little place was perfect for a long weekend getaway for the 4 of us. The beach was a very manageable walk away, and the setting itself was quite peaceful. The road traffic was very minimal, and the layout was perfect for its size. I was pleasantly surprised with how clean and updated the house was considering the economical rental cost of this property. In addition, the staff at Proactive was excellent to work with, and the owners seemed very nice as well. Overall a wonderful stay.

 

Amber Ramsey 5/06/2019

My family and I had not had a vacation together in over 10 years, this home was beyond perfect for us. Also, my first time being at the beach with my nephews who are ages 5 and 2, full of energy and so much fun. We absolutely loved the location, a minute walk to the beach, the views of the ocean, the march, and of course the home being dog friendly, which was accommodated with latched gates on the front porch. Definite plus. Not to mention, I myself got engaged on the beach to my sweetheart, the second night we were there, a few days before my birthday, which we were also celebrating. I think its safe to say this was the best week of my life so far. Still sinking in how amazing everything was, and how helpful and easy Proactive Vacations made our visit to Beautiful Holden Beach! Thank You!

Proactive vacations was easy to work with and very responsive. The home delivered on everything and more than was advertised. I highly recommend using their services and spending time at Livin in a Dream!

 

Jeffrey Rosenbalm 4/23/2019

Good location. Would rent again for a long weekend.This is the first time we used Proactive and they were great.

 

Barbara Bennett 4/02/2019

Lulu Rose is a grand get away. The beach cottage was beautifully equipped. Much more then I expected. The design and care that the owner designed her presentation was very much appreciated by us. The management company did a very professional job of answering our questions and represented Lulu Rose as a million dollar property. Big big thank you.

 

Rebekah Cobb 11/29/2018

We enjoyed Seven Seas very much, it was well furnished, clean and quiet. Marsh Walk was great. Proactive rentals was a pleasure to work with. It was our first visit to Holden Beach. We definitely will go back.

 

Diana Miles 11/11/2018

Helpful Property Management at Proactive, clean home in quiet location on Holden Beach.

 

Martha Davenport 10/27/2018

We always enjoy our stay at The Summer House. The direct number for repairs is great. We called it and Chris came within the hour to exchange/program our tv remote control. Jackie was so helpful with all the reports during Hurricane Florence. We hope to continue to come there: it’s our home away from home.

 

Terry Crawford 8/19/2018

Proactive Vacations provided us with a superbly clean rental, easy check in/out opportunity, we couldn’t have asked for more!

 

Frank Howard 7/17/2018

This is the 3rd year we used PROACTIVE for a vacation rental. We returned to the same house rented in the previous years and all was wonderful….not one problem . The house was clean and inviting. We will use PROACTIVE again next year. Also, I am a veteran and they worked with the owner to get me a military discount!

 

Wendy Warren 6/16/18

We’ve been coming to Holden Beach for almost 20 yrs. This year was our first yr to rent through Proactive and we will definitely be return customers, in fact we have already put a deposit on the house for next year. The house was everything we needed for a reasonable price. We had 2 very minor issues come up during the week and a phone call to the friendly office staff and it wasn’t long before a very nice maintenance man quickly got things fixed. Everyone that works with them are completely customer service oriented and you can’t ask for a friendlier bunch. I highly recommend renting from them.

 

Susan Greene 5/14/18

Great stay. Great views of the ocean. Absolutely love dealing with the people at Proactive! Best customer service of anyone at Holden Beach. Thank you!

 

Ann Wright 4/4/2018

Excellent service!

 

Jennifer Garner 4/2/2018

We stayed at Seas the Day for 4 nights. Probably one of the best vacation rental companies and properties we have visited. We had one very minor issue that was resolved before 10am the next morning. This home was perfect for our family of 4 and the kitchen comes fully equipped with anything you would need. Very short walk to the beach! I would definitely recommend Seas the Day and Proactive Vacations to anyone. Look forward to our next trip.

 

Tim S. 3/1/2018

Had a great time! Loved the house, great location, and great fishing. The Proactive staff was helpful and responded quickly. Will definitely plan to stay here again in 2017. Thank you for making our vacation a memorable one.

Fun Times

“We rent Fun Times for a week every year. The location is perfect. The common areas are open and spacious. The views are amazing. There is nothing that I would change. Also, Proactive is the best vacation rental agent!! We used to go through another company, but we were so impressed with Proactive that we haven’t even considered anyone else since using Proactive. “

Buck Stops Here

“Our stay was almost interrupted by hurricane Irma. The proactive team was great with keeping us informed during the event. We were able to come to the beach and had a great time. The house was clean and nice. We would stay here again.”

Our Point of View

“We loved our weekend at Our Point Of View. The house was beautiful and our grandchildren loved fishing off of the pier on the intercostal waterway. No trophies were caught but they loved catching the small ones. Everyone at Proactive were very helpful and friendly. We will definitely vacation with them again.”
