Overview

Bald Head Island House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, Sleeps 12

20% off Open Summer Weeks! Give your family a present and spend your vacation at Bald Head Island's The Present. This absolutely gorgeous 5BR/5.5BA home offers serene sunset views over the lagoon and golf course but is just a few minute golf-cart ride to the beach.

Two-story windows in the great room flood the open floor plan with light. This room is anchored by a beautiful fireplace that flows straight into the dining area and kitchen-perfect for entertaining. The dining table easily accommodates eight and is adjacent to the breakfast bar. There is also an octagonal sun room that provides additional dining seating.

The kitchen is a dream, featuring top-end finishes, granite counter tops and stainless appliances. The oversized island provides plenty of space for multiple chefs to prepare culinary delights!

The first floor also boasts multiple outdoor living spaces. Besides the front porch, there is a covered deck, an open back porch and a screened side porch--plenty of spots to congregate or sneak away for a quiet nap.

Finally, this level includes the laundry room and a half bath as well as two master suites. Both bedrooms are furnished with king beds, TVs and private adjoining bathrooms.

Upstairs there are two more bedrooms--one with a queen bed that opens to an upstairs deck overlooking the lagoon and golf course. The other has a bunk bed that sleeps four (one twin, one double and a trundle).

The second floor also offers additional living space--a den--as well as an octagonal screen porch.

For guests desiring more privacy, the home's crofter offers a king suite with a microwave, small fridge and private bath--it's just perfect!

Also included with this rental are two golf carts (a 4- & a 6-passenger) and a temporary BHI Club Sports membership. (A Shoals Club temporary membership may be purchased for an additional fee.)

This home offers everything guests need to relax, unwind and truly enjoy being in "The Present"!

(3K / 1Q / 1BB (twin/double/trundle), 2 Golf Carts (4 & 6 Seat), BHI Sports Included & Shoals Available for Additional Fee) WEEK ONLY RENTALS MEMORIAL THROUGH LABOR DAY.

NOTE: TRAM SPACE IS LIMITED - PLEASE CALL TO MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS TO AND FROM THE ISLAND WHEN BOOKING. WWP IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR GETTING YOU TO AND FROM YOUR RENTAL HOME. CHECK OUT IS 10AM AND CHECK IN IS 4PM.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall our vacation experience at this house was a good one. The golf carts did not work well, probably the slowest on the island and since this is the main mode of transportation, colored our experience. Too many roaches in the house.

Owner's Response: Dear Elizabeth- Thanks for taking time to write a review and let us know about your concerns. I will forward this to our maintenance staff so they can check out the golf carts. Similarly, I will let housekeeping know about the bugs. (While they are part of our subtropical environment, we like to keep them at bay.)

Beautiful house! Great central location for easy golf cart rides or walks to the market and marina areas. Enjoyed the 2 bikes, beach chairs. Master suite bed was heavenly--loved the linen duvet! Great porches, beautiful great room. Well-equipped kitchen.

Our two families with 7 kids had a fabulous week at The Present! It was great to have bathrooms with each bedroom. Lots of space for us to enjoy different activities (playing cards, puzzles,etc). Kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. We would happily stay at The Present again!

Reviewer Comments:

We loved the house and would definitely come back. We did think the outside looked a little run down...definitely in need of a paint job or major pressure wash. Also, we thought it was little cheap to provide only one trash bag! Seriously! We were there for a week. That obviously wasn't going to do. I expected to bring many items but didn't except not to have soap in bathrooms or to have to buy our own toilet paper and trash bags. For the price those times should have been included. Also, lower floor screened porch furniture was basically non existant. If we would have wanted to sit outside in the porch only two of the ten of us could have fit in two less than comfortable chairs. That might a good spot for an upgrade. Overall, we loved it and would recommend it to others.

Reviewer Comments:

Our large family (9 adults / 1 child) had a great stay at "The Present". Observations: Great house layout and design, minimal steps for small children and older adults to main floor, comfortable, four main house bedrooms for us and our adult children and common indoor space worked well (note: queen with upper bunk in 4th BR as a less desirable for our group but might be great if there were younger children). Our daughter, her husband and 2 year old stayed in the Crofter which was great for them for naps and early night-night times allowing the main house to function at normal activity levels at all times. Only shortfall, little outside furniture on main level screen porch and top floor deck for outside living. Overall, for us, a great choice.
