The house that we rented was everything that the owner stated it would be! The location was great. However I am not sure that you can get a bad location. The owner went out of her way to make sure that we were at home in her house. We spent 10 days on the island and can not wait to go back. When we return we will look at one of her rentals again. We had a wonderful time exploring the island and could not ask for a better vacation. Everything that we planned went smoothly. The owner had great advise that made our trip easy. Her house had everything you need from beach items, to kitchen items. She is great to rent from. Thanks for wonderful time.

Love this property!

  • 5 of 5
This is our second year staying in this house for our summer vacation to Bald Head Island. What a perfect location and a very comfortable home away from home. The owner went to great lengths to ensure that the house was clean, well maintained and that we had everything we needed for an excellent week. We even had a nice little gift waiting for us when we arrived. We will stay here again next year!

Excellent spot for relaxing summer vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Merritt in the Middle last July and greatly enjoyed our stay. The property was clean, bright and cheerful and the owner was very helpful and did a lot to make it homey and pleasant. There is a great view of the ocean from the balcony (love the ocean sounds!) and it is right across the street from the beach. We had a wonderful stay and have decided to book the house again for this summer. Highly recommend.

Merritt in the Middle was a great vacation home!!

  • 5 of 5
We have been coming to BHI for 11 years....this owner paid the most attention to detail and was the most helpful with questions, etc, of any of our property owners yet!
We were even welcomed with a fun gift at the front door when arriving, what a nice touch!
Definitely worth checking out!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. It remains important for me as a private manager of my property to take pride in my homes, treat each guest/family as I would like to be treated when I rent a home for the Holiday and hire a housekeeper who feels the same. Your feedback will be taken to heart as I continue offering rentals on BHI~~

Another lovely stay

  • 4 of 5
This is our second stay at Merritt in the Middle. A short walk across the street to the beach, water views between the roofs of the houses in front, a sun and screened in porch . Merritt in the Middle is a cheery small 2 br high on the ridge so you have lovely views, big enough for a family of 4. Its an effortless stay at their houses.The Merritts do a wonderful job of appointing the house as if they were staying there. My pet peeve with vacation houses is that after you pay all that money, sometimes there isn't even a roll of toilet paper, dish detergent or napkins for your stay. All the basics are included at the Merritt houses. They take such good care of their guests. As an example, a big storm the day before we arrived blew out one of the screen panels on the porch. One call to the property manager who lives on the island and it was magically fixed within 24 hours. Thanks Merritts for wonderful stay.

Little Piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at Merritt in the Middle numerous times over the years and always leave with thoughts of returning as soon as possible. The house is tastefully appointed and the kitchen is well equipped. Basically everything you need, including great beach essentials and good bikes! The view from the upstairs deck is magnificent and the perfect place to end each wonderful day in Paradise. The owner always goes the extra mile to insure that all guests enjoy their stay. Wish I had more than 5 stars to give!

Owner's Response: Appreciate the detail of your review. Continue with commitment to update my home and provide comfortable, pleasant surroundings. With new Adirondack chairs the views from the porch are definitely magnificent. Try to treat all guests as I would like to be treated when staying at a VRBO advertised vacation rental!
