There is also a porch off the greatroom with unbelieveable views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Cape Fear River. Downstairs you will find two large bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with two queen beds. There is also a jacuzzi tub and a shower in the master bath. The bedroomes come with tv and dvd/vcr players.
Both bedrooms share a large porch that overlooks the ocean. A washer and dryer are also conveniently located downstairs by the bedrooms. The house sits on a large private lot and has beautiful landscaping. The sunsets are awesome!!!!
One six passenger golf cart and one 4 passenger cart come with the house along with four adult bicycles.

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 !
Everything was there for us and the pleasure of sitting on the upper deck with a beautiful view of the ocean was fabulous. We loved driving around the island on our golf cart.
Great house. Best sunset views on the island. Would recommend
Arrived at 7:30 PM. The key was not where the owner said it would be. After leaving VM for owner received a call back. 30 min after arrival gained access to house. House had not been cleaned from prior renter: dirty sheets piled on MBR bed others in washer. 1/2 full coffee cup on kitchen counter! Etc.! Owner had cleaning person come over to clean. Person finally left after 10:00 PM. Next day RE agent pops in (in the house) unannounced. She apologizes and leaves after saying she was to show the house (for sale) and said "do not worry about it". 10 min later a family shows up to view the house without an agent! Not a great first time experience for us!
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.
Beautiful views & quiet location. House was very pretty and clean with just about everything you could need. Added fun having golf carts to go everywhere!
Owners were so nice & helpful.
Our first trip to BHI was awesome! Will do again:)
Tip: make sure you get your tram reservations early on!
Just 1 mi. from the ferry and .3 mile to the Bald Head Island Club.
