Great Location, Nice Bedrooms, Easy Access

  • 4 of 5

Overall our stay was wonderful. Great location to the beach. My only feedback is the house needs so TLC. The upstairs patio has several holes that have been covered with some rubber flooring but still feels like you could fall through.

Great location but house needs a little TLC

  • 4 of 5

My wife & I and another couple stayed at this property for Memorial Day weekend. The house is in a wonderful location. Just steps away from the beach and you can see the ocean from the first floor and the beach & ocean from the second floor. Just a few minutes to the market and marina by golf cart as well. I really can't say enough good things about the location.

The house is in need of some TLC. You can tell it being so close to the ocean is taking its toll, but for our purposes it was just fine. We weren't looking for super fancy. The location is what sold us. It had all of the amenities we needed. Only a couple of minor issues such as tv remotes not working (even after the Property Manager gave us some new batteries). The golf cart is old but it works fine. The two bicycles were in fair shape. My wife had a little bit of trouble with the women's bike but it served its purpose.

Brandy Parker (the Property Manager) was a pleasure to work with! Other than the house having a little bit of wear on it we were happy with our choice. If you're looking for a small, affordable 2 bedroom/2 bathroom ocean front property on Bald Head Island this is a good choice.

One thing I would recommend to the homeowner...the upstairs deck needs some outdoor furniture. There was only one rocking chair and a tiny table outside and the view is AWESOME so guests will definitely want to sit out there and enjoy it!

Off Season BHI

  • 2 of 5

Off season Bald Head Island is not for everyone. NOTHING open except the Market. My mistake but not communicated by the agent nor the owner.

House needs some attention. Master bath shower door is problematic and upper deck need major repair.

I live in NC and understand spring time pollen but there is no excuse for not at least rinsing off the outer areas before guest arrive.

Wonderful peaceful weekend

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful house with a beautiful view and just steps from the beach - very clean and it was just the right size for us - only thing that I would suggest is a bigger bed in the master as there is room for a queen and that would have been better for a couple sleeping than a full bed. The location was perfect and we really enjoyed the island and the golf cart :O)

Owner's Response: Thanks again for staying with us! We are so glad you had a great time. Bald Head is a special place! There is actually a queen bed in the master and a full size bed in the guest room. We hope you can make another trip again soon :)

Great house with wonderful views of the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our dog, decided to spend a week on BHI in October. This was our first time we had vacationed there in the fall. Well, I can honestly say that it is now our favorite time be there. The weather was perfect! The layout of the house, Sailing, made it even better, with its oceanfront views and the most awesome sunsets we have ever seen! Loved the top deck with its views and the screened in porch directly off of the 2 bedrooms downstairs. It was wonderful leaving our door open to the porch and being able to hear the sound of the ocean during the night. It also worked out wonderfully every morning when we could just walk directly out of the screened porch and down to walk on the beach without waking others. Brandy made the booking of this great place a breeze and I look forward to working with her again. I would highly recommend Sailing to others who love having a front row seat to some awesome views of the ocean.
