My husband and I spent my birthday at A World Away and enjoyed every moment. The house was so inviting and comfortable. The location is fantastic.....the best on the island as far as we were concerned. Throughly enjoyed exploring the island in one of the two golf carts that were provided. Ate at MoJo's several times.....the food was delicious! In the evening we would sit on the deck and marvel at the gorgeous sunsets......and we loved watching the big ships that were coming and going from Wilmington. They were SO close you felt like you could just reach out and touch them. We enjoyed our time there so much that we extended our stay 4 days!
The owner, Sue, was delightful to deal with as was Brandy the manager. We are so looking forward to our next visit, in fact, I would go back yesterday!
Thank you Sue for sharing your wonderful home with us and we can't wait to return!
I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting a very private, yet easy to get to, place to "chill" out. My husband and I absolutely loved it! We'll be back !
My husband and I go to the beach every year. We are always looking for different places to experience. We decided to take my mother and father and head to BHI!! The house had the best view and location. The home owners had provided linens, movies, games, blender, coffee maker, beach chairs, beach umbrella, etc... We quickly realized we had packed to much! We did bring most of our food and enjoyed grilling out! We needed a vacation to get away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Well, we got it!!! Sipping coffee on the balcony while watching deer below, the best seashell collection I've seen at any beach, fishing, crabbing, climbing Old Baldy and most of all the breath taking sunsets!! I was so sad to leave and with both parents being in bad health...it felt so good to hear my parents say that was the best vacation they had ever had!! Thank you for sharing your slice of Heaven with us..WE WILL BE BACK!
This was our second vacation to BHI, but first time at A World Away. The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We loved sitting on the deck each evening & watching the sunset. Already looking forward to next year! Thank you!
Beautiful house and location! Perfect for our family of four. Everything was as described plus more. We will definitely be returning.
This is our 4th return to this home for vacation. It really is beautiful inside and out. I miss that view for 51 weeks a year!
My husband and I spent a wonderful week here. First time on BHI. The house is well equiped and the owner and support staff very responsive. Sitting on the deck watching the sunsets and ships sailing through the channel absorbed many relaxing hours! We enjoyed exploring the island in the golf cart and found every Conservancy offering superb. No problems with groceries - the Market is well stocked. The house is ideal for two couples to share. That's our plan for next time!
