Wonderful home in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Palm Cottage is our third rental on Bald Head Island and it is most definitely our favorite! We agree with the other reviewers that the home offers outstanding comfort and cleanliness, and is equipped with everything you need to enjoy a wonderful stay. Every room in the home is one you can truly relax into, both indoors and out, and the location is ideal, being tucked away in the maritime forest yet still very close to the market and beaches. Kathleen is so responsive and helpful, and just a pleasure to interact with. Overall the home is a lovely, luxurious and peaceful retreat and we would stay there again in a heartbeat!

A stunning cottage, beautifully appointed, in a quiet setting.

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of six with myself, my wife, our daughter, son-in-law and two grand-daughters (10 and 6) who stayed from June 10-17. The house was perfect for the six of us. A modern spacious living room, an eat-in kitchen, and full dining area which we didn't use since we were mostly casual, and a fully screened in porch or "Florida Room" with a large table and a ceiling fan where we ate most of our meals. The king bed in the main room was comfortable and the unique shower in the en-suite with its two shower heads at opposite ends had me thinking of (many) years gone past! Upstairs, the adults and the two children lived comfortably with the queen bed in one room with a queen and bunk beds in the other The furnishings in the house were modern with all of the utensils you could possibly need. We had full use of the golf cart and a guest club membership at the Bald Head Island Club as part of our rental package. I can't say enough about how pleasant it was. Our family guarantees anyone staying a most enjoyable experience with Kathleen as a wonderful hostess whom we contacted on a couple of occasions with questions but not complaints. We did not miss being by the beach since it was a 5 minute ride in our golf cart.

Easily a Five Star Home!

  • 5 of 5

Palm Cottage was the third home we rented at Bald Head Island in as many years and is by far the best. The comfort level of the home is outstanding. Each bedroom has great mattresses for a comfortable night sleep with the rest of the house well appointed from a comfort level as well. The little things are taken care of - bikes in the garage that work, plenty of towels, new appliances and a fresh coat of paint with newly finished floors. The porches provide great additional areas to enjoy the outdoors. The decor of the home is very well done. We like the location in the forest since it is basically the "center" of the island. Lastly, Kathleen is great to work with - responsive, conscientious and definitely committed to ensuring her guests enjoy their time on BHI. I don't often make recommendations but I do recommend Palm Cottage.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this lovely house twice in the past year. Our first visit to Bald Head in April and we were lucky enough the house was available again in December. Everything you need is right there. Fully heated and air conditioned. Full size washer and dryer and dishwasher. The kitchen has plenty of cookware and dishes. We had a good time cooking all together. There is a breakfast nook and a separate dining room. The large front porch is perfect for enjoying your morning coffee and we loved the huge screened in back porch for family game night or for the kids activities There is very large table and chairs set up there. There is also a smaller sitting area for relaxing with a book. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, but were close enough to the shops and the beach to make it convenient. Will definitely rent the house again next time we vacation at Bald Head!

Had a delightful girls getaway at the Palm Cottage! The home is beautiful and there's nowhere more relaxing than BHI. The home is comfortable and has just the right amount of space, including a huge front porch! The amenities are wonderful also. I will return as soon as possible and recommend this rental property!
