Domenic, Jennifer, Ethan, and Abby currently live in the Pittsburgh area and are huge Steeler fans. We always look forward to our next trip to our favorite place! BHI

Domenic Mendicino purchased this house in 2011

We looked for a vacation home along the entire North Carolina coast and fell for Bald Head Island as we are sure you will too.

Our home is located conveniently in the center of the island for quick access to the market area or beach by foot or cart. We love to spend days at the beach and return to our cool comfortable forest home.

What you Pay for is NOT What you Get

This property fell short of our expectations. The outdoor fire pit was not operational; however, this was not communicated to us prior to arrival or prior to our purchasing propane to run it. Propane is not included and is required to run the fire pit, the heat lamp on the porch and the grill. The grill was caked in old, crusty food and fungus. One of the two golf carts broke down the first time we took it out. We had to push it 2 miles back to the house and rent another golf cart to get around the island. The owner refused to pay for the rental saying "As the carts are there for your convenience, and do not affect your accommodations, I won't pay for the rental." The use of two golf carts is explicitly listed four times in the VRBO description of the property as an accommodation and/or included in the rental fee: 1. Two 4 seat golf carts included 2.Two golf carts and bicycles are included in your rental fee 3. You'll be just minutes away from all of the amenities by golf cart. 4. just minutes by golf cart from the beach, Harbor Village and the Maritime Market. Clearly, it is a selling point. Be advised, the description of The Palms is a misrepresentation of the accommodations actually provided. I am astounded that the owner would not do the right thing and pay for the rental. I do not recommend this property for anyone.
Owner's Response: It seems as though the property didn't fall short at all. All of the outdoor heating/ cooking appliances require the small propane bottles which are readily available on the island.
The fire pit was broken by the prior renter, and we are waiting on a part which I did neglect to mention to this renter.
The golf carts are serviced several times a year, and were just in last month. I received an email from this renter late at night, the day before thanksgiving saying that the cart was "sluggish". I informed her that the shop would surely be closed the next day, but I would leave a MSG to have it taken care of first thing Friday morning. Another email was received thanksgiving evening stating that her husband had "fixed" the problem. I'm not sure how they feel the home was misrepresented in any way, as it is exactly as appears on the site.
I try to be very accommodating with all renters, but you can't please everyone.

Charming Family Home

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 4, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
Five of us stayed so very comfortably at The Palms. We had an idyllic week . The beds were so comfortable and the kitchen was one of the best equipped ever. We ate most of our meals at The Palms, utilizing the grill. We had fun,delicious and leisurely family meals. We saw two turtle excavations and we had three runners in the Turtle Trot 5k. We would definitely recommend utilizing the Shoals Club membership. We have rented for over 10 years at BHI and this was one of our favorite pet friendly homes. It was hard to leave! Dominic was a delight to work with and we truly felt like guests in their lovely home.

My family stayed for a brief weekend at 'The Palms', and the only thing about our trip was that we had to leave! I beatiful place with all the conveniences one would ever need, great kitchen with all the needed items, and nice location near the grocery store and nature preserve.
Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words. Glad you enjoyed it, and come back anytime!

Great home on BHI

We just came back from a stay at The Palms and had a great stay for 3 small families (8 people total). The home was very well equipped with everything one would need for cooking, entertaining children, etc. was there as described. We had dinner every night on the screened in porch under the fan watching the wildlife and natural setting. The kids played the Wii during rest time from the beach or when the occassional shower happened. We've stayed in several other homes on the island and none were as well maintained as The Palms. The owners and their on island support were always responsive to our requests and we would gladly rent from them again.
