My husband and I spent my birthday at A World Away and enjoyed every moment. The house was so inviting and comfortable. The location is fantastic.....the best on the island as far as we were concerned. Throughly enjoyed exploring the island in one of the two golf carts that were provided. Ate at MoJo's several times.....the food was delicious! In the evening we would sit on the deck and marvel at the gorgeous sunsets......and we loved watching the big ships that were coming and going from Wilmington. They were SO close you felt like you could just reach out and touch them. We enjoyed our time there so much that we extended our stay 4 days!
The owner, Sue, was delightful to deal with as was Brandy the manager. We are so looking forward to our next visit, in fact, I would go back yesterday!
Thank you Sue for sharing your wonderful home with us and we can't wait to return!
I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting a very private, yet easy to get to, place to "chill" out. My husband and I absolutely loved it! We'll be back !
Hello! Thank you for posting your review! We are so glad you enjoyed our home and look forward to you returning.
We very much enjoyed our stay at this house. Views from the second level were incredible and our kids enjoyed seeing all of the boats that pass in front of the house. Kitchen was well-stocked and having the two golf carts was nice as well. We would certainly stay here again!
Awesome house and location
Location of World Away is great. Small dated house.
The house was clean , but had a very strong smell to some kind of spray, especially on the couches. The kitchen is dated but everything works. It’s a small house that was great for a long weekend , or for a small family. The beach is wide open and beautiful, but there are riptides right there, so not advisable to get in the water. We enjoyed our stay and like Bald Head Island.
We take a lot of pride in our home and take every review serious. I am sorry if a house of 2,300 sq ft. was not large enough for two people but the size is clearly listed on our web site. As for the house being dated.....we have just installed all new stainless steel appliances in the kitchen this past year so I'm not really sure what your referring to when you say the kitchen is not up to date.I have taken every measure to see that the kitchen is fully stocked with anything you could possibly need as well. The house has just been completely painted and new bedding/tv's/dvd's/ new linens etc. I am not sure what smell you are referring to but we have never had an issue. The best part of our home is the location and the view. We are right on the ocean and have never had a bad experience or complaint about the beach. Again, we always take all of our reviews serious and want each and everyone of our renters happy in our home.
Right on the beach! Great house!
We really enjoyed our stay. We liked the reverse floor plan with the living room on the second floor so you can see the beach and ocean and the sunsets. Bring binoculars so you can see the ships that go by in and out of the Cape Fear river.
A beautiful home with a beautiful view. Perfect spot for one or two couples.
Just 1 mi. from the ferry and .3 mile to the Bald Head Island Club.
