The fourth bedroom contains a queen and set of bunk beds. Each bedroom is decorated in a beach cottage motif. The bathrooms are finished with granite countertops and custom tile work.

'The Palms' is stocked with books, videos, games and puzzles in case a rain cloud passes by.

LOTS TO DO

Your vacation will have a temporary membership in the Shoals Club available. The Club has a full-size pool, fitness center. It also has a poolside snack bar and a more formal restaurant. Beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas are available as part of the membership. We highly encourage all renters to take advantage of this impressive club.

Bald Head Island's 14 miles of beaches can be accessed at any of the 42 public beach entrances. We provide everything you need for a day of fun: boogie boards, beach toys, beach chairs and umbrellas, and beach towels.

You can also rent kayaks to explore the Island's creeks, bicycle to the Harbor for an outdoor lunch at MOJO's, take a hike along one of the Island's nature trails, or enjoy a relaxing day at the newly-opened Spa next to the Maritime Market. You'll be just minutes away from all of the amenities by golf cart.

Our home is a non-smoking home and pets are considered.

Why Domenic Mendicino chose Bald Head Island

We had a great time in Bald Head Island. The house was beautiful. The kitchen was well stocked. The house was clean and the beds were comfortable. We had fun on the 2 golf carts. We enjoyed sitting on the porch swing after a day at the beach. We loved being able to have our dog with us. Bald Head Island is very pet friendly from the ferry staff to the people on the beach. We can not think of anything that would have made our week any better.

We came to the island for our daughter's wedding. Our household of 9 were delighted with our accommodationad a great time! The house was very accommodating from every aspect. Very central/convenient location. Our party of four could not have been more comfortable. Even the very minor problem with the golf cart was handled by the owner seamlessly with no noticeable down time. Thanks . The weather was perfect for enjoying both the open porch in front and the screened porch in back. The large open living , dining and kitchen provided wonderful socialization space for our group and those that dropped by for our brunch on Sunday. I visited 5 other homes of similar size and pricing over the weekend. The Palms was the best! We hope to visit again just for relaxation!

What you Pay for is NOT What you Get

  • 2 of 5
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.
