The first floor features 3 bedrooms, (2 Queens, 2 Twins)each with a private bath. Also on the first floor, a full laundry, open foyer, front and rear porches.

We are a family of 4 from Chapel Hill, NC. 'Unwynding' on Bald Head Island is our favorite pastime.
Tom Mercolino purchased this house in 2011
Unwynding is about the nicest home of its size on the BHI golf course. The reverse floor plan and siting of this home make it sunny and bright, with views typically not available among BHI forest or golf course homes. Unwynding is centrally-located to the Marina, BHI Club, the Maritime Market, and other shops. It is just a short walk or cart ride to the beach.
There is always something to do on Bald Head or you can just relax and do nothing!
Couldn't ask for anything better. A world of it's own. The house was awesome. Quiet. Easy to get to all parts of the island. I'm very jealous that you can visit this outstanding location at all times of the year.
Could not have been more pleased with our stay at Unwynding on Bald Head Island. The house was perfect from its presentation, to its comfort, to its very fully equipped kitchen, to its absolutely quiet forested location (on the 11th fairway). The owners were wonderful to deal with and their smooth operation added to the relaxed enjoyment of the weekend. The golf course was absolutely beautiful from its perfect condition, to its vistas (lots of water), to its plentiful wild life. Everyone at the golf club and the Shoals Beach Club made us feel right at home as if we were long term members. The fully paved cart roads all over the island make it perfect for bike riding and exploring. The two golf carts that come with the house added extra fun. Even the short ferry ride to the island makes one feel like you've passed through some sort of "portal" to a location of full peace and tranquility. We are going back as soon as we can.
We had a great week on BHI. The owners were easy to work with and answered all of our questions. The house was clean and in good shape. It's a great location off of a main road, making it easy to get to the Ferry, Market or any beach. The Internet is top notch and the golf carts are in great shape. They have seatbelt, blinkers and even a speedometer!
Well maintained, great location. Will definitely check this place out again!
My family were bowled over by this beautiful house. We attended for a wedding on the island and required accommodation for 9 adults and a small child. The house was perfect and is an extremely well maintained property. Decor is exquisite and all the furniture and appliances are of the highest quality. The location, on the edge of the golf course, is spectacular. We will definitely pay another visit to 'Unwynding'
This trip was our second in two years. We had such a perfect time last year that we booked the same house. In fact, we did not consider any other properties. Unwynding is the perfect beach house! We loved the layout, attention to detail, location and our outstanding hosts. Tom and Jane provide you with all the extras...From comfy beds to two very nice golf carts. They were patient and responsive to any questions that we might have had. We enjoyed the Shoals Club access during the week. We look forward to a repeat next year to Unwynding.
