Gorgeous Home, Well Equipped, Awesome Property Manager

  • 5 of 5

We rent a lot from VRBO. This was the nicest home and best equipped we've every seen. The number one kudo is nice bedding. No one had back pain from sleeping on the horrible mattress usually in a rental. Everything we needed was in this beautiful house - towels, linens, chairs, boogie boards. Plus, Mike the manager went out of his way to accommodate us in several ways. We'll come back and recommend your properties to others!

Great family vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds comfortable. We liked the location, the golf cart ride to the West beaches took about 10 minutes. We missed having an outdoor shower. The house comes with a guest membership to the Bald Head Island Club, but we didn't use it. We would rent this house again.

Great family spot!

  • 5 of 5

We love this house! We have a large crew and it fit us nicely! The house is clean, up to date, easy lay out for family hang outs and accessible to the beach/grocery store/rental spots/dinner etc. Love the screened in porch for when I had too much sun and needed an outdoor, shaded spot to relax. The kitchen is super easy to cook in with all the basics you would need. Beds are great too! Highly recommend!

Family Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVE this house. Our stay was beyond amazing and would highly recommend it to anyone. The house is beautiful and has everything you can think that you would need in a rental beach house. The kitchen is fully equipped to prepare any meals. We cooked most of our meals at the house and were able to enjoy them sitting in the beautiful covered porch or in the spacious dining table inside. We had eight people in the house including three kids and there was more than plenty of space for all of us. There is so much space in the house and everything is so well distributed that it allowed for everyone to relax and feel very comfortable. The house was very clean. Each room has access to a full bathroom with clean and soft towels which was great! Every space of the house is very peaceful, whether it's sitting on the porch connecting with nature, hanging out in the living room playing games or relaxing on the comfortable couches reading a good book. They have a nice selection of books there that you can borrow if you like to read and didn't bring a book. There are also little details and fun decorations that make the house cozy and makes you feel at home. We went to the beach every day and it was very easy to get anywhere around the island with the golf carts that we had full access to. The golf carts worked great and we had a great time exploring the many places in the island. The house is at a great location so it's very easy to get to anywhere from the house. This is the second year that we go to this house and it is a blast. It's so nice to feel at home away from home. If you are planning a trip to BHI, don't think about it twice, this house is the perfect getaway spot.

We loved this house! Well equipped...beautiful high ceilings...fabulous screened porch...can't say enough positive. Michael was wonderful to work with. We have been renting at Bald Head for over a decade and this was our best experience. We would rent this home again in a heartbeat and hope to do so in the near future!

Highly recommend!

Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The four of us LOVED this house; it was perfect as we each had our own bedroom and bath. The weather wasn't ideal but since we are game players, it worked out great... an excuse to stay in and keep playing. The kitchen is well stocked and the grill was easy to use. Easy access to both golf carts. The home is well decorated and was VERY clean. It has a great screened in porch with lounge furniture as well as a large table for eating. Mike was super to work with. Also, good location to everything. Highly recommend!
