  • Nice and relaxing stay


    The park was just a short walk away with swingset, slides and tennis courts. The beach was also a short walk away. We could come back to the house quickly if needed.

    Very family friendly environment. The house was just what we needed.

  • Absolutely love this house


    My family and I loved our stay at One Happy Turtle. The house was so clean and well stocked with just about anything you could ever want or need. Excellent communication with the owner and a very short walk to the beach. Perfect for a family traveling with kids, grandparents and dogs! We will definitely be back. Not house related but Holden is so fun for shell and shark tooth hunting. We found a ton of cool stuff!

  • The Perfect Shell


    My adult children and our dogs spent Christmas together here. It was perfect! The host has so many small touches that made us feel welcome! The dwelling itself felt so homey and everything you might need is there. The beach view is great and it is such a short walk to get to the beach. We had an amazing time and will definitely come back. It was the perfect shell for my family of turtles!!
