Two familes, young kids, enough space and SO EASY!

  • 5 of 5
We have been to BHI every year for the past 6 years. This year, we decided to go to BHI with another family. We selected Merritt because we saw the game room for the kids, deck for the grown ups, and crofter for one family to make space away from the main house (this would also be a great place for teenagers to sleep). We knew the area of BHI and knew this location is one of the best in terms of Shoals, beach, and market access. Merritt exceeded our expectations. Kitchen was better stocked than any rental we have ever stayed in...even with some spices! Lots of games, puzzles. Two golf carts, bikes, boogie boards, chairs...enough for 4 adults and 3 kids EASILY! The house is on a court so the kids enjoyed playing out front on bikes, scooters etc while we watched them and the sea from our deck above. The owner was great with communications...got right back to you with any questions. No worries there. Only need to walk across the street to the beautiful beach. It's like it is ocean front without the added cost! We'll be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you taking the time to provide comments about Merritt on Bramble. Hearing what works allows me to maintain properties that encourage loyalty. It is important to me to offer a vacation home to guests that would bring smiles to my family. We like to cook and eat at home, play board games, enjoy the ocean views, have space to gather & space to enjoy a bit of privacy, get to the beach with ease.....I am happy you enjoyed the same. Hold your memories....they are a precious part of Holiday experiences!

Merritt on Bramble Surpassed All Expectations

  • 5 of 5
This was our 9th family vacation to BHI and Merritt on Bramble was the perfect location. This home is extremely well maintained and very clean. Our multi-generational family found the accomodations perfect for an active 2 year old, his pregnant mother and dad and the grandparents and great-aunt & uncle. The weather was incredible, topped off by a full moon for Memorial Day on the beach. The bicycles and golf carts were in excellent condition and we enjoyed reading several of the many books on hand at the house. We would highly recommend this home to others and hope to come back here on another trip to our favorite place on earth -- BHI!

Labor Day Weekend at Merritt on Bramble

  • 5 of 5
Great location - easy access to the beach and short beautiful drives to the market and Cape Fear.

The kitchen was better stocked than most beach rentals and the garage contained more equipment than promised in the way of beach chairs, bicycles, helmets, etc. Great outdoor shower. New grill and the golf cart performed just fine.

Limited ocean view (as described) but the porch was wonderful in the AM and as the sun started down.

Our damage deposit was returned quickly. Special thanks to Chris who found some important papers that we left behind and promptly returned them us.

Owner's Response: Appreciate your vote of confidence. Receiving details of what "worked" for you really helps with decisions required to maintain comfortable, guest friendly beach home rentals. Always happy to make sure that forgotten items get returned to their owner...my home manager and housekeeping staff are the best! Hope you are able to visit again. Best

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5
My family ( of all adults) had the perfect time at Merritt on Bramble! I am sure this would be a great spot for a family with children, but it's a bit harder to find a place that adults can sleep comfortably. Merritt on Bramble was just the ticket for all of us. We grilled, with a new and wonderful grill, we boogie boarded with the boards provided, we sat on the porch and enjoyed the ocean, we biked and we were on the beach in just minutes from the house. The house was very clean and charming. We enjoyed ourselves 100%!

Owner's Response: Pleased you found Merritt on Bramble to provide "just the ticket" for your family of "adults." Appreciate that you noticed and enjoyed the new grill, boogie boards, bikes, views and proximity to ocean. I will pass on your observations regarding cleanliness to my housekeeper and cleaning service folks~~they will appreciate the feedback. Hope to see you on future visits!

Merritt on Bramble

  • 4 of 5
Property had a good location on the island, although many would prefer ocean front instead. For the cost, the house was fine ~ comfortably slept 6. Property is not pristine ~ has some wear and tear, but overall, it is fine for families with kids and teens. Simple furnishings, comfortable, not high end like some of the other houses on the island. Dishes were fine. Plus for us were the bicycles which were great for cruising around the island. Washer and dryer in good shape.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Merritt on Bramble is a great value for clean and comfortable oceanview accomodations. You are certainly correct that guests preferring ocean front should invest in homes advertised ocean front. Ocean view homes provide view of the water, Merritt on Bramble from a vantage of ~ 40 feet above sea level, but not unobstructed ocean front. The bedrooms and baths offer plenty of privacy with fresh bedding and towels available for up to 10 people when requested. Thanks for noticing the new washer and dryer.
