Very clean, cute villa
We were immediately impressed with how clean this property is. Great location, has everything we need,( the kitchen is very nice) even working bikes! We really enjoyed our stay and being able to have our standard poodle , Max , with us made it even more enjoyable. Thank you!
Great vacation getaway
Very accommodating owners that allowed swap of reservations for family emergency. Rental is dog friendly. Convenient location right across road from beach and beach access. Overall great place for mini-vacation and long weekend. Thank you!
Wide open ocean views
Just walking into this adorable house is so enjoyable! The decor and layout are perfect. Then the view striking from almost everywhere you are in the house. And location couldn’t be beat. Walking distance to BHI club for lunch and supper. Four days of Tennis and 2 rounds of golf even though it is February. Thank you for sharing your lovely home wth us.
Great Location, great Villa for 2 small families
We truly enjoyed our New Years Weekend at this property. The view from the living room and outside deck was amazing. We did have an issue with the Golf Cart, however the property owners were fast to get it fixed with no hassle to us at all. They were very responsive. Only suggestion we have is maybe invest in new beds or memory foam pads. Also, update your "welcome letter" with the new WiFi passcode. Thanks for the stay, we will consider this property again in the future. FYI for families with kids, the upstairs loft TV is not hooked up to Cable, however a dvd player is provided. We brought an Xbox, so they were able to play games and watch Netflix. Thanks again.
Sorely Needs Maintenance
Although the villa is located directly across from the beach, it has not been well maintained. We were greeted with cock roaches on the interior and peeling paint everywhere on the exterior, a "1980's bath" in the second bedroom with no bath mat, a lock on the sliding glass door that did not work properly (which meant we had to take our valuables everywhere with us during our stay), questionable cleaning (The wood floors had not seen a wet mop in ages and the remotes were filthy), noise coming from the wall behind the stove in the kitchen, and a terrace umbrella that did not open as it was broken.The larger beach umbrella provided had several broken ribs and could not be used. For the amount of money we paid per night, this was certainly not an acceptable quality/price value. Owner provided a 4 page information page which was very helpful but which had the wrong internet password log in on it.
Wedding on Bald Head Island
We absolutely loved our vacation on BHI and my son's wedding couldn't have been any nicer. The combined families are hoping to make it an annual gathering place. The only complaint I had was the one golf cart didn't have working headlights and even though the Villa came with a complimentary membership to the Bald Head Island Club we didn't know what we needed to do in order to use that privilege. Being on the beach with virtually no one else was wonderful. We also loved that the island is so pet friendly.
Thank you for a wonderful vacation and a very memorable wedding.
