About Tom Mercolino

We are a family of 4 from Chapel Hill, NC. 'Unwynding' on Bald Head Island is our favorite pastime.

Tom Mercolino purchased this house in 2011

Why Tom Mercolino chose Bald Head Island

Unwynding is about the nicest home of its size on the BHI golf course. The reverse floor plan and siting of this home make it sunny and bright, with views typically not available among BHI forest or golf course homes. Unwynding is centrally-located to the Marina, BHI Club, the Maritime Market, and other shops. It is just a short walk or cart ride to the beach.

What makes this house unique

There is always something to do on Bald Head or you can just relax and do nothing!

Wonderful place to Unwynd

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Unwynding! The house is well-appointed and very comfortable. After staying in other rentals on the island, we particularly appreciated how clean and well-maintained Unwynding is. The reverse layout was particularly good for our group's range of ages and interests, and the screened porches were favorite gathering spots. Great location: the golfers loved the view of the course, and the non-golfers loved our proximity to the beach. Tom was gracious and welcoming, and clearly committed to helping us enjoy our stay. A delightful getaway!

We Loved Our Stay at Unwynding, BHI

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome stay at Bald Head Island!! Our family loved Unwynding, it was perfect for us. It has a wonderful, spacious open living and dining floor plan. The home was extremely comfortable, well-maintained, spotless and had all the amenities that anyone could ask for. The owner's attention to detail was very evident. We loved all of the porches. The location was centrally located to the beach, ferry, golf, market and restaurants. The owners, Tom and Janet, were so helpful and responsive. We look forward to going back again!!

Excellent Quality and Attention to Detail

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a wonderful week at this home. It is spacious and very well built, with a top notch open kitchen, dining and living area, along with a screened porch and open deck overlooking the 11th fairway of the golf course, enclosed by trees on each side for shade and comfort. Having visited Bald Head regularly for more than 10 years, what impressed us most was the attention to detail shown by the owners. Tom and Janet understand what vacationers need. We found 3 wicker baskets full of neatly folded beach towels, four adult bicycles that really work, a very nice beach umbrella that we used each day, a fine Weber grill for preparing the fresh seafood that we love, and the best tandem of golf carts we have ever had on the island. All one has to do is relax and enjoy!

Great house on Baldhead Island. Large living space; open floor plan with kitchen, living room and dining room all open. Wonderful screened in back porch. Crofter is beautiful and does not have the musty smell that other BHI units exhibit.

New golf carts and plenty of useable bicycles.

A great Getaway on Bald Head Island

  • 5 of 5

This house provided a wonderful vacation for our family of 4, and there was extra room for more 2 more kids if needed. Plenty of extra bathroom and beach towels The newly renovated kitchen and eating area provided a clean and pleasant atmosphere to spend quality time in. It was great to have an outdoor shower to use after a day at the beach, so you didn't have to bring sand into the house. There were TV's in every room that allowed everyone to watch a particular program if desired. The main family room had a large flat screen TV with high definition. The house also had good wifi. Having 2 golf carts was a plus, as sometimes half of us wanted to go in different directions. A good, quiet, central location where any destination on the island was easy. I would recommend this home for a wonderful getaway!

UNWYNDING was a wonderful home for our family vacation! Great floor plan: very spacious living area with lots of room for everyone: even a separate "study" off the big living room. Large kitchen area well stocked. We especially loved the 5 porches! The 2 golf carts were in great shape and held their charge really well. There were 8 beach chairs - and several bikes which we rode daily! We suffered no "technical snafus"; TVs, internet, refrigerator, AC, plumbing worked great! Our family has visited BHI on 6 different occasions and UNWYNDING is the first house we are considering renting for a second time!
