Fantastic birthday!

  • 5 of 5

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 !

Really is gorgeous, and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The house is truly lovely. We did have spectacular sunsets every evening from the porch. The upstairs living room and kitchen area are very comfortable, as are the beds and baths. The beach on this part if the island is very wide, good for long walks. The two golf carts offer easy transportation to all the island sights, including other beaches, the clubs, the grocery store and restaurants. We also enjoyed the bikes. We highly recommend this house.

Unbelievable view and sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Amazing views from the porch and all of the Windows. The house is absolutely beautiful. We had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. It was great having 2 golf carts as well as the beach chairs and umbrella available.

Susan was very responsive when a couple of very minor things came up.

Bald Head Island itself is a very magical place. I'm looking forward to returning again someday.

Sitting on the 2nd floor porch was my favorite spot!

A World Away. Love it!

  • 4 of 5

Just got back this weekend after a very relaxing weeks stay at your vacation rental, A World Away.

Always a great time and great accommodations that fit our family perfectly.

And we appreciated seeing the new beach chairs and umbrella. We were able to use the chairs but was too windy a couple of days for the umbrella. Great addition.

The new paint in the house is very nice, too.

Thanks so much.

Matt & Lori

Back Again!!! This is the perfect place for our family of four. Location! Location! Location! The sunsets are unbelievable, including visits from the deer and dolphins.The rooms and bathrooms were large and spacious. My kids loved the private outdoor shower. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed and more. The home was very clean and all sheets and bath towels were provided. The owners have made some nice improvements since our last visit. New paint, fridge, front door and bedding in the one queen bedroom. The beach accesses doesn't get any better/easier and seemes like you are on a private beach. The house is within a short cart or bike ride from the ferry, shops, restaurants and lots of the islands activities. Highly recommend the sunset celebration if you have young children. Delphina's (Mexican) restaurant is our favorite. We also did the ghost walk this year and it was fun for all ages. My daughter (7) participated in one of the turtle conservancy camps and could not stop talking about how much fun it was. She also taught us a thing or two. The house is also very close to the Bald Head Island club that we used. It was perfect for the kids with a fenced in playground, splash pad and pool. We love BHI and "A World Away" is a perfect home away from home.
