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

Unwynding is about the nicest home of its size on the BHI golf course. It is sunny and bright, centrally-located, and just a short walk or cart ride to the beach.

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

BALD HEAD BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have vacationed on the island for the past eight years and 'UnWynding' is by far our favorite retreat. The location provides the perfect blend of shaded live oak trees as guests approach the home, and an amazing view of the fairway from the multiple porches, two of which are screened and two which are open for sunning and lounging. The mattresses are just the right firmness for a good night's sleep. This year ten of us gathered and the house accommodated our children and grandchildren while my husband and I enjoyed the crofter suite. Two new golf carts had seatbelts and great pick-up, unlike carts we have experienced in past years. Tom was a wonderful host who kept us posted on the advent and demise of Hurricane Arthur. The day we spent indoors due to the storm was actually a highlight of our week. There are games and movies for rainy days. While we brought with us the Disney version of Peter Pan, the house had the Mary Martin version that I had enjoyed as a child. Now it is the hands-down favorite of the entire family. Attention to detail and the owner's sincere desire for us to make 'UnWynding' our home made this year's vacation perfect. We can't wait to return.

A TREAT ON BHI!!

  • 5 of 5
I have been fortunate enough to stay in many wonderful homes through VRBO over the years and all over the US. This house is at the top! 5 STARS all the way! Not only did we discover the most special of vacation locations, but a house to match. It was spotless! Everything was in perfect working order. Kitchen had every possible appliance including spices!! Very comfortable beds and bedding. The floorplan was perfect for our family. We loved the two screened porches overlooking the golf course. The golf carts ran perfectly. We hope to return to BHI again soon. We would not think about booking anything other than "Unwynding". Thank you Tom and Jane for sharing this special place.

SVP OF REAL ESTATE COMPANY

We have been staying on the Island for 10 years and this was one of our best trips. The house was perfect and true in every description on VRBO. The kitchen was one of the best equipped ones we have had in years and the porches, decks, and screened porches were ideal for us. The owner was very hands on throughout the process including checking on us when we arrived and departed. THe house had two well running golf carts which if you have stayed on the island before, can sometimes be a real issue. I highly recommend Unwynding for any family or couple looking for the perfect getaway! Scott & Paige

Owner's Response: Paige & Scott, It was a pleasure to have you as our guests. Thanks for acknowledging the high standards we have for amenities at Unwynding. The kitchen actually was one of the main features that attracted us to purchase the home. Also, it was very kind of you to mention the golf carts. These are new and equipped with street-legal equipment for the safety and comfort of our guests.

GREAT HOUSE AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
In spite of the chilly weather, my family enjoyed spending Easter weekend at Unwynding. The house worked out well for our multigenerational vacation with plenty of room for everyone. The house's location made it easy to get to the market or the beach via golf carts or bikes. We found the house to be well equipped, clean, and well maintained.
I appreciate how responsive and helpful the owner was before our stay, upon arrival, and after returning home. It is obvious that he is anxious to make sure his renters have everything they need and a wonderful experience. I would not hesitate to rent Unwynding again or recommend it to a friend.

GREAT HOUSE IN TERRIFIC ISLAND LOCATION.....

  • 5 of 5
Our family vacations several times a year on BHI. This was our first time staying in this house, but we found it to be as described and a terrific deal overall. The house is tastefully decorated and has ample space for one or two families. The owners were the most responsive of all the homes we have rented. We would certainly rent here again.
