Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The four of us LOVED this house; it was perfect as we each had our own bedroom and bath. The weather wasn't ideal but since we are game players, it worked out great... an excuse to stay in and keep playing. The kitchen is well stocked and the grill was easy to use. Easy access to both golf carts. The home is well decorated and was VERY clean. It has a great screened in porch with lounge furniture as well as a large table for eating. Mike was super to work with. Also, good location to everything. Highly recommend!

Family Spring Break Trip

  • 5 of 5

Family Tides rocks!!! We were here for 8 nights and absolutely loved it! Don't let past reviews fool you, this is a great house and made for a great vacation. This is our 11th trip as a family to BHI, and this was definitely one of our favorite stays. With the weather still a little chilly this time of year, we had plenty of time to relax in the house and enjoy playing games together around the large kitchen table. The kitchen was well stocked and very clean, perfect for cooking family dinners and snacks. The living room had plenty of seating and was very cozy for watching basketball games together. We really enjoyed the brand new carpet throughout the house as well. One of the best things was that each bedroom has its own bathroom with it! It was so nice to have four full baths! The screened porch out back was very spacious, and it was great to have a porch upstairs too! Overall, this was a fantastic house, and we were so happy with everything. Definitely one of our best choices on the island. Michael was great to work with as well, and was very accommodating.

Girl's Trip

  • 3 of 5

I have been to BHI many times over the past 10 years and absolutely love it! This trip was a girl's trip for my sister and a couple of friends and the experience certainly did not disappoint. Sparky's roost is a very quiet location and the golf course behind the house is beautiful. We were comfortable for the most part and Michael was an absolute delight to work with. He was very responsive to all of my questions and the issues we experienced while staying at Sparky's Roost. The issues are why I can only rate 3 stars, unfortunately.

1)We arrived on Saturday and had very poor wi-fi reception, by Sunday morning there was no internet connection at all. Michael was very responsive, but could not get the internet provider to the house to repair until Tuesday, which was not his fault, but made it quite inconvenient for us in the interim since some of us needed the access for work purposes.

2) Appliances need updating. The freezer never worked properly and the first night actually defrosted so we awoke to a huge puddle of water on the floor and melted ice cream in the freezer. Michael was so kind and replaced the ice cream for us, but the freezer continued to leak from the icemaker and it never produced a normal amount of ice.

3) The window sills, porches and patios were very dirty. The weather was pleasant and we wanted to have all the windows open to allow fresh air in the house. When we opened the windows, however, it was apparent that they had not been cleaned in quite some time as they were extremely dirty. Both porches are very pretty and have great views, but the furniture was so dirty we had to clean the table and chairs ourselves in order to enjoy sitting out there.

4) The shower in the upstairs bathroom had the hot & cold water reversed. Even knowing this (after Michael checked it out) did not help much because using the cold side to get hot water resulted in very low water pressure.

5) One of the bathrooms on the main floor had a leak underneath the sink. Michael tightened the pipe, but it continued to leak and needs to be repaired or replaced.

6) Carpet needs to be replaced - really stained which makes it feel dirty

I truly wish I could give this house a better rating because it is really cute, a great location and Michael is wonderful! Just needs some updates & TLC from the owners, including a really thorough cleaning throughout before I would consider returning.

Great service, great location, comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home in a central location on the island. This was our thirteenth year on Bald Head and our 10th different home. It was one of the best for the price. Comfortable, spacious, quiet, lots of places for our group to be together- or split up to read, play games, relax. The property manager was very responsive to our needs for a few items. We would definitely return!

Wonderful Home in an Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

We were also first-timers to BHI and I can't say enough positive things about the house and the island... as both were perfect and our family had a blast! I can only echo all the positive comments that others have stated in their reviews regarding the house. I would most like to comment on how great the house manager (Michael) was. Michael was more than responsive to any question or need that we had, both during the reservation process and while on the island. One example was when we realized the gas grill looked a little rusty and unsafe. I contacted Michael and he immediately delivered us his personal grill from his home. The next day he had the local hardware store deliver a brand new gas grill and he came by himself to remove the old gas grill. That's what I call excellent service! Once again, Michael was fantastic!

Spacious and Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to BHI and Sparkys Roost was the perfect place for our family. The house was extremely clean, great rooms, quiet, and large screened in back porch where we ate dinner most nights. The kitchen was well appointed and we made great memories as a family. We loved jumping in the golf carts with just a short ride to multiple beaches. The owners were very helpful in getting information to us prior to the trip in regards to packing and taking the ferry. I would definitely recommend Sparkys Roost to anyone looking for a spacious and quiet vacation home. We hope to come back. Beautiful home & beautiful island.
