Amazing but short expensive weekend!

We were on the island for a wedding for the weekend. We had 14 people in our house, and the house was perfect! The house only had 2 golf carts that held 12 people total, so we ended up renting another golf cart. Also, the rental agency had a 3:30 check-in on Friday, and a 9:30am check-out on Sunday. For the amount of money we paid, it was very expensive. Asked for early check-in on Friday or late checkout on Sunday and we were able to check-in on Friday at 12:00 for $225 more! Late checkout was not available. When checking availablity on line, house was empty week before, and not occupied until Thurs. week after! All in all, the island & house was amazing, but we will try a smaller agency that is more willing to accommodate next time!

Everything we wanted and needed it to be!

My husband, four kids and I came in to help with the inauguration Badwater Cape Fear 51 mile race March 22. We came in late Friday night and left Sunday morning. I was looking for a well-located house that my husband and kids could use all-day while I worked as the time-keeper for the race (7 am - 10 pm). The house was perfect for us- and with 2 golf carts, I was able to take one and leave one for the family to use. They toured the lighthouse, went shopping, spent time on the beach and came to visit me several times at the Conservancy (race headquarters). Normally I would be more in charge of taking care of our kids on a trip like this, but this time I couldn't...but Bald Head Island was the perfect venue to let my husband step up and take over. We put the 2 teenagers in the upstairs bedroom so that they could stay up late and use the kitchen/living area. That worked well for all of us early-to-bed-early-to-risers sleeping downstairs. We arrived after dark on Friday, and as first-timers to Bald Head, had no idea where to go or how to get around. The location of the house made it easy to drop off our things, jump on a golf cart and head to Mojo's for a late dinner (the grocery store had already closed when we got there). The map they provided in the house also helped a lot until we got our bearings. It really is a simple island once you get there and everyone is so helpful if you stop to ask. We will definitely be back next year for the race! We look forward to exploring more of the island next time.

A Timeout with Charlie

We hadn't been back to Captain Charlie's II since our wedding night - it was a great escape! We had terrible weather but curled up on the couch with some wine and games. Being able to look out on the ocean rather than brave the elements was a special treat. And when the clouds finally parted the beach was right out our front door. Always a pleasure to stay at Ccii - it won't be the last time.

Great Winter Retreat!

Our group of 10 had a wonderful time at Bella Vista. I will point out what was great for us is it felt like everyone had their own space while also having time in common space for all. Great space and location. Appreciated that all the light switches were marked or it would have taken all weekend to figure out how to turn anything on. One thing to check is the hot water. Did not get that hot at all, but I am sure they can adjust. We also had a lot of problems with the wifi. Bummer since we really needed it for our retreat. I found the rental staff very helpful. They tried to remedy the problem, but it just kept going off line. But seriously, being unplugged was nice and there were plenty of other movies to watch. All the decorations and appointments are top notch. Despite the little glitches I would return.

Very Nice homw

This home is immacutely clean. Really liked the design of the home with the open floor plan downstairs. Bedrooms upstairs were very spacious and well decorated. Location convenient to East beach (our favorite). 6 person golf cart is was a nice addition. 2 small things...the cofee maker did not appear to work (or we could not figure it out) and there was a fairly strong odor in the home the last day we stayed.

Will never rent from them again

Our stay was cut short by one whole day dur to bad customer service from the rental company. We travelled with a newborn and asked for a crib. Checked in and there wasn't one. Waited and found pack n play had been delivered while out with family. Called and requested a crib and never heard back!! So careful if traveling with baby--the company doesnt care and it is simply not safe or easy to put a newborn to sleep with a five foot drop. The house was just okay. Terrible stains on the carpet that made me uncomfortable without shoes on. Bathrooms very dated. Beds comfortable and our two year old loved the bunk beds. The crofter was also very dated and looked like a sparse motel room. The TV was impossible to figure out with one of the main channels without sound for some odd reason. Obviously we got no sleep during our stay and never to this day have we gotten a callback. We returned the keys a full day early and do not plan on renting again from this company. Simply, this was not what I would expect for this kind of money...disappointing at best.

Comfortable, Clean, and Close!

We've stayed here twice over the last several years and have always enjoyed this house. The screened porch on the side is nice to enjoy during good weather! The house also has a medium sized flat screen TV in the living room and master bedroom. Wifi is another nice thing to enjoy. The things we didn't like are only one 4-person golf cart and bikes in the garage are chained up so can't be used. Kitchen has good utensils, plates, glasses, and kitchen gadgets!

Excellent experience at Beacons Watch!

We filled the rooms at Beacons Watch for a long weekend with close friends and family for our son's wedding. The home is gorgeous, spacious, well-equipped and appointed, and very comfortable for a crowd. Separate bathrooms for each bedroom, with unexpected amenities like magnifying makeup mirrors. Large bedrooms with comfortable beds. Beautiful views. and the kitchen - a cook's dream!

Lovely rental home!

My best friend got married on Bald Head Island, so we rented the place for the long weekend. Fantastic views with a fantastic well maintained home! It is a duplex! Beware of the crazy next door neighbors housekeeper! Both beds were comfortable! The kitchen was well supplied for cooking, and a gas grill was accessible in the detached garage. The beach access is only a short walk. The golf cart that was provided was great for one couple to get around, but if you plan on going out frequently definitely rent another cart. The coffee maker died while we were there, and the rental company quickly brought us a brand new one. Definitely use the membership to the Shoal's club! The food was fantastic, and the bartender was amazing! The rental was very costly.

The Tv's belong in a museum.

High definition TV and a flat screen monitor have been standard for many years. The owners may not enjoy TV but they should warn guests that one must go out to a bar to enjoy a college football game.

Lovely spot marred by administrative red tape

We had 2 nights to enjoy in the fall on beautiful Bald Head Island. Check in was 1:30. Check out was 8 am. When not in our rooms, our luggage was to be stowed at the dock. That meant we had 3 hours on the beach on our arrival day. None on our departure. We paid for two nights and received 1 1/3 day of beach time. Also, the pet friendly restaurant insisted our dog stay outside the confines of the outdoor deck, even though he was in his travel crate. So if you book, make it an extended stay or be prepared to overpay. Take the pet friendly part with a grain of salt. Also, be careful of the bikes. They are rickety.

Wonderful setting and home, but needs a bit of attention.

The home is idyllic, of course, and one would have to enjoy it for its many luxuries and wonderful design. However, a few incidental things did disappoint: the hot tub promised did not work (and with 2 guests having back problems, they were looking forward to using it); two electric carts need attention -- one did not work at all and one had lights that failed twice at night and driving back to the house at night is very difficult without lights; bathroom lights in 2 bathrooms need fixed and the steam option in the master bath did not work. These are not such to make the visit unfavorable, but are items to be checked. We greatly enjoyed the visit, and have plans to return -- though not to that rental.

Relaxing

From the moment we arrived at Paradise we were very relaxed and felt at home. The home was very comfortable for our family, lots of space for each one to have their private time. A wonderful central place for our family to be together and enjoy each other. What a beautiful beach to enjoy and let life's problems melt away. Got a chance to play the golf course and what a beautiful one, even got to see 3 alligators. Our family looks forward to coming back to BHI.

Good experience, but with major concerns!

The house appeared 'ready to use' upon arrival.The house layout was fine and we certainly enjoyed the porch; both screened and off the kitchen. Location was good;having the golf cart to get over to the beach was no problem.Happy that there were 2 carts, but we had to rent an additional one. Like best:size of the house and open living area; plus adequate bathrooms. Liked least:My husband spoke to the rental agency; but I'll add here as well.First, the mattresses on all the beds, including the upper bunk bed in the downstairs, were unacceptable.The queen bed was the least uncomfortable. Not sure on the bunks upstairs; kids slept in them.By the end of the week, everyone was complaining about not having slept well; tossing and turning b/c of the mattress. Second, on day one, quite naturally everyone took off their shoes in the house. We began to question why everyone's feet were "turning black" on the bottoms...even the one-yr old child's. Kinda passed it off on the first day...then after everyone showered the first evening and within hours, black feet reappeared. The was the situation all week. I believe the cleaning service was vacuuming, but not mopping the floors!!! As a test, I scrubbed 4 tiles with a bath cloth and it was filthy! Finally, and ranked as bad as the above 2...the level of noise heard in the downstairs, while upstairs was unacceptable. Every time someone walked across the floor, or slid out a dining chair or bar chair, it literally sounded like the chair was in the bedroom with you! On more than one occasions, my daughter had to "warn" everyone not to move the chairs at all nor walk across the living room floor while she was putting the baby to bed downstairs. I'm not sure what the owners can do to minimize the noise factor, but it certainly would have made the adults who slept downstairs much happier if there was no noise. Overall, we liked having the family all in one house and access to the beach. thanks, Kathleen Carter

Perfect central place for the Fairy Godmother of the Bride

My large family, coming from 5 different states descended on Bald Head Island for the wedding of the century, for my niece. When I first heard of the idea of renting a house with so many "moving parts", I thought "oh dear". We had to make reservations a year in advance, lock things in 6 months in advance, pay in full 60 days in advance. I'll cut right to the chase - it could not have gone better and Marsh Madness was the perfect place for our family and merry making! First of all - the house. As people were making plans, we thought we'd have between 8 and 18 people. . . .and a dog. We thought about two places, but Marsh Madness was large enough to accommodate if everyone came (and a dog) and was a reasonable price if we had a smaller group. Again, the wedding angels shone upon us, we had 16 people (and a dog) with people coming and going, and it was perfect. Our group was all adults (chronologically speaking) so the 5 bedrooms, all with their own bathrooms were perfect to allow privacy (especially because our group included a new boyfriend and family friends who probably got to know us a little more than they may have liked). The three bedrooms (on the ground level) were connected on the outside by screened in porches - perfect for secret chats. Location - the reception was at The Shoal's Club - how wonderful we were so close to the venue, especially when you are trying to move so many people! We also hosted a going away brunch - and there was lots of room with a nice living area, two huge porches (but of course, everyone wants to be in the kitchen "helping") and the kitchen accommodated that. Finally, and most importantly - I have some gourmet cooks in my group - they oo'ed and aww'ed over the knives and pots and pans - enough plates for a group and two ice machines that came in very handy. One of my jobs was to make cookies for the wedding - I brought a little Barbie sized hand mixer and was greeted by a professional grade Kitchen aid master - perfect for making lots of frosting. I felt like somewhere along the way, I met a genie, made three wishes and Marsh Madness made them all come true. It's a beautiful place, with the back porch looking over the Marsh. I loved the quiet mornings with a cup of coffee, before the Madness took over. I love the Madness, too. If I return to Bald Head Island, I can't imagine staying anywhere other than Marsh Madness. The folks at Bald Head were accommodating, talking to me every week, someone's coming early, someone's coming late, someone's not coming, oops, yes they are, missed the ferry, got the earlier ferry - and they helped at every step. They were there, but we weren't being watched. I never staying in a family's house before, but if the family reads this, thank you for being part of the wedding. It was magical

Great location

We have stayed at more than a dozen homes on BHI in the last few years. This home offers a great location. The house, however, needs some TLC and an intense cleaning. The issues were related to things like: shower curtain mold, dishes looked like they had been put away in cabinets still dirty, etc. Nothing that can't be overcome but this was not our best rental experience.

We love Bald Head. Even a bad house on Bald Head would be divine. That said, when we arrived at Marsh Madness for a family reunion of the East and West branches of the family tree it was icing on the cake. Marsh Madness is by far the most well thought out and equipped home we have ever rented. I also loved the decor--- lots of beautifully framed prints of universities and their teams, along with maps and coastal images. It was such a pleasant change from the typical beach decor. The kitchen was unreal in terms of all of the accouterments and quality of equipment. Then tack on wrap around porches and the wonderful views of the marsh. The privacy for our grandmothers in the adjacent crofters was fantastic too. The fact that it was pet friendly was key for us and I always expect wear and tear in homes that allow pets. Not evident here. You would never know it. I had a couple of issued that required management and the staff were super responsive. No problems at all getting help. If we come back and have a crowd this large again, I would definitely rent March Madness.

A Great Experience at Bald Head Island

We came to Bald Head Island for a family wedding. We'd never been to the Island before. We left Bald Head Island wondering how soon we can be back. Jade Oak is a great house. Clean, spacious, and comfortable in a very quite section of the Island. Access to the Shoals Club, beach, and the Port area was very convenient. The rental agent, Bald Head Island Limited, was great.

A little surprised...

When the tram dropped us off at the house we thought we were at the wrong place. It wasn't a free-standing house, it was a two family attached house. We reread the description of the rental and saw it was listed as a "duplex". We didn't realize that meant 2 family. So, that was disappointing. But it was clean and pretty well appointed and in a great location. And Bald Head Island is great. A few complaints: a number of lightbulbs needed to be replaced, one of the bikes had no brakes (they'll tell you they're not responsible for the bikes but it would have been good to know about the brakelessness before my daughter found out on the road - we ended up renting bikes), there was no golf cart in the garage, and then when it was delivered it had no headlight, the beach umbrella and one of the chairs was broken which we found out after we had lugged them to the beach. So, a number of things that shouldn't have been but the managing company was responsive to the things that they were responsible for.

Great Place to Gather with Friends

We stayed at My Three Dunes for a week in July 2013. Our large group included 6 adults and 6 children (ages 9 to 17). The 5 bedrooms accommodated us very well (though the upstairs bunkroom is tiny, the 3 girls sharing it did not complain). The open plan living/dining space is huge with room for everyone to gather for conversation and meals. The house was clean when we arrived and everything was in working order. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware, bakeware and plenty of dishes/bowls etc. The house has great views of the ocean with beach access just across the street. It is well-located about halfway between the Shoals Club and BHI. There is an outdoor shower which comes in handy after a day spent at the beach. The only things I would change is to add a gas grill (there is only a small charcoal grill right now) and to have access to an additional golf cart (only two 4-person carts currently).

Wonderful

Bald Head was wonderful as usual! The island is family friendly and gorgeous. Jj's Hideaway, with its 4 bedrooms and open concept kitchen/living area was spacious and well-planned. We loved both the indoor and outdoor (decks/porches) living space. Plenty of together space and private space for all. The beds were really comfortable and the views of the beach were lovely. The kids loved the updated technology and giant television in the living room. The crofter was a little cramped compared to the rest of the house, but was fine for its intended purpose (privacy). The home is well-kept and with just a short (and I mean really short) walk to the beach or short golf cart drive to the pools, you can't beat the location! Thanks for a great trip!

Perfection!

We have stayed in several houses over the years on Bald Head at most of the venues: marsh, other ocean front, second row and forest. While every spot on Bald Head has its own special charm, this house and its location are simply the best! Treat yourself to a front row seat to probably the most scenic East coast ocean expanse, an early 20th century architectural charmer, modern amenities (the Wolf range is awesome), and a sense of peace. This house made our stay at Bald Head the best ever. Thank you Captain Charlie!

My family and I enjoyed the stay at Neverland and Baldhead Island as Usual. Didnt really expect the fifth bedroom over the garageto be separate from the main home but we managed. The beding in the bedroom over the garage wasn't suitable for comfortable sleepin, the springs in the pull out sofa were broken and made sleeping very uncomfortable. The decor and furnishing of the main home is beautiful and spacious. My daughters loved the architectual layout and floor plans of the home. The landscaping (trees and shrubbery overgrown) and yard manintance needed to be done and some trash (disposable cups were behind the shrubbery and visible upon arrival.

great location, needs updating

this house has a great layout with a loft that sleeps 4 & a full bath. however, no attention has been paid to the nightime entertainment (tv) situation. the tv in the main room is like the size unit you would put in a kids room. maybe 26 inches, and old. no hdmi here. dvd player is cheap and not bluray (half the dvds for rent at the market are bluray). and there is a vhs unit, which is silly since the house has no vhs tapes and you can't get them on the island. since bhi has no nightime activity, watching movies at home is all you can do. can't believe no one has thought about splurging on a big flat screen for such a nice house. so cheap these days. some more comfortable chairs would improve the deck experience as well. its tough to sit out there on those planks.

Great house and vacation spot

We rented this house as one of three for a family reunion of 19 people and 4 dogs. This house was perfect for us - 5 bedrooms in main house and 2 bedrooms in crofters, great kitchen and plenty of places for everyone to sit for our evening meals. Bald Head Island is fabulous though getting there is a bit of a pain, but once you're on the island, it feels like you're a million miles away from civilization - beautiful beaches, great swimming pools, expansive marsh views from this house. If we return for next year's reunion, we'll probably choose another week since the week of the 4th was crazy busy and grocery store kept running out of things. Also, BHI LLC made an accusation of smoking inside one of the crofters and imposed a $500 fine without asking me if, in fact, someone in our party had smoked in the room, which did not happen. I really resent the tone of the email I received from the company and cannot get anyone to respond to my request to credit my card for the fine. So, not happy about that which has nothing to do with the house but does have something to do with the company.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay at Marsh Madness. We value your comments and appreciate your time. We pride ourselves in not imposing fines on anyone unless there is 100% verification and that we must attend to the owner’s property. It is always unfortunate that we have to impose these fines, but in this case, the management company has made the decision to reverse this charge. We are thrilled that you all enjoyed the home and all the island amenities, and as you know from the conditions of the home, BHIL takes great care of our homes we manage and are attentive to our guest. We hope you return next year for another memorable family reunion.

Wonderful Home-Wonderful view

Our family vacationed on BHI and for the first time,did not stay in an oceanfront home. This property,on the marsh was exceptional-gorgeous,serene views that changed with the tide and a luxurious ambiance.We all loved it.The pool and hot tub were big hits and made up for the short golf cart ride to the beach.I would stay again and would recommend OM Sweet Home.

Great Location and well equipped Home

This was our first visit to Bald Head and we rented the house based solely upon the pictures we saw. Home was clean and very well furnished. Great proximity to the beach and easy access. Only issue is walls need a good coat of paint. Gave impression the home was not as clean as it really was and for the price felt it should be in spectacular condition. Again, home was very well equipped. Landscaping needs mowed or pruned. We would consider renting this property again if it is a little less in price or updated/repaired appropriate. Convenient location as well to market and both clubs.

Smooth as promised from arrival to departure.

Our realtor, Marcia, actually went out to the property before I signed the contract so she could confirm that the house was clean and in excellent condition. Although the downstairs living area was small, the two enclosed porches (upstairs and downstairs) added to living space. My only complaint was that the pull-out sofa in the upstairs sitting room was not there and a new one did not arrive until two days before our departure. There was no mention of this (despite the fact they called to tell me the ice maker wasn't working). Fortunately for us, two of my children's friends were unable to make the trip so it worked out. I'm not sure how it would have been resolved if we had needed it. However, with that said, everything else was perfect. I would definitely rent this property again.

One Wonderful Week!

Our family of 15 had the best time staying in this beautiful home on the nicest little island. The week was filled with fun and relaxation on the beach, the pool and in the house. The children had so much fun everywhere we went and can't wait to come back next year!

Too close to the main thru road.

It was very noisy with people talking all thru the day and night. But I must say this was only a problem when you used the screen porch. Very heavy construction truck come by very early in the morning. On the plus side this rental has two golf carts and is very centrally located. We did enjoy the house very much.

Met our expectations and needs perfectly.

Plenty of room for our group of 9 and pretty well set up for the kiddos. I personally loved the upstairs screened-in porch - more like a perch among the treetops. It was our daily breakfast spot. All the necessities were there and the place was very clean. It took some searching to find things in the kitchen, but we were pretty successful in that pursuit as well. There is no real "view" from this house, but it is sheltered from the wind and I would definitely recommend it as a nice place to unwind and enjoy the island. It comes with temporary membership to both clubs on the island, which was unclear to me when I rented the place. We were on the island for our daughter's wedding, so it was wonderful to have a place to call "home" during the before and after time of the wedding. Even the weather cooperated!

Spent 5 busy days marrying off my oldest son. Shoals' Club was a beautiful venue for the occasion. We explored as much as we could with time we had. Plan on going back to see things we missed. Mother's Day weekend was a perfect time to go. Not too crowded just warm enough water a little chilly. Mojo's was delicious, was the gathering place for the Rehearsal Dinner and the winding down dinners. We will be back!

Perfect BHI place for a single family or 2 small families

We rented Conch Cottage for the second time for the Memorial Day Weekend. It was an ideal house for 2 families as long as all the kids can share a room. The third bedroom has 2 bunk beds so it was perfect for all four girls. The house is well-laid out. First floor has kitchen, dining, 1/2 bath and living room plus screened porch and front porch. The stairs are very steep. The second floor has three nice bedrooms and bathrooms plus a washer and dryer. We cooked most of our meals and ate in and had everything we needed for several nice meals...grill, gas stove, pots, pans, etc. The property was well maintained except the bikes are showing the signs of the challenging environment.

Charming Historic Beach House

Time for an Update...

We have visited BHI many times and sadly our stay at CC2 left a bit to be desired. This house is really in need of an update. The location can't be beat, however for the amount that you spend to stay on BHI, the conditions of this home should be better. The weather wasn't great so we needed to spend a lot of time indoors. The couch and living room is definitely for show rather than use. We ended up moving the TV to an upstairs bedroom to watch movies. I realize it is an old home, but it honestly just felt dirty and run down.

Easy and relaxing week of family fun!

We were very happy with Jade Oak! It was our first maritime forest experience on BHI! Very convenient to all the areas of the island as well! Recommendations: would be helpful to have a couple of true spatulas in the kitchen. we could have also used 2-3 more kitchen towels as well. maybe a set of family friendly plastic cups and bowls too if possible. Would have loved it if the front porch had been screened in too so that we could have been on the sunrise side of the house in the morning enjoying our coffee (too many mosquitos though prevented that!) A big thank you to Rob for his willingness to bring in window a/c units when our upstairs a/c stopped working during the week! Such great service was truly appreciated and will be remembered as well! We had a wonderful week and will no doubt be coming back each year if possible!

A great stay in the forest with the beach close-by!

What a beautiful stay we had in Bald Head Island! This cottage made it so much better! Arcadia is centrally located near the Maritime Market. It was so easy to run to the store and get what we needed for dinner every night! The well stocked kitchen was great. It even had a Keurig coffee pot and blender! The cottage is so comfortable for a family! It even came with a pack n' play, a crib and high chair for our 1 year old! The screened in porch was perfect for the night time sitting outside and listening to the crickets! Furthermore, the master bedroom bed is so comfortable! I overpacked since I was able to use the washing machine daily! WiFi was great to have! Also a wonderful thing to have was the outdoor shower-perfect for cleaning the kids off after a day at the beach. The golf cart was great to take to the beach which was less then two minutes away. We highly recommend going to the new BHI Conservancy. Wonderful programs for kids and adults alike! We also used the pool and went to dinner at the Bald Head Island Club (temporary membership is available). Diffinately recommend doing all of the geocache on the island! Log in to find out! So much fun and a great way to see the island! The ferry over was fun and the tram took us directly to the house. We did take our bikes-so we did have to come back to the ferry dock to pick them up. Bhi is lovely for those who are looking for the ultimate quiet beach vacation with a little ecotourism thrown in! Arcadia just makes it all that much better!

Lovely historic cottage with beautiful views.

Our arrival from the Southport ferry terminal to the cottage went flawlessly, which we appreciated after a long drive! The return service was equally organized. We loved our stay in Captain Charlie's I cottage. The views were beautiful and the cottage lovely. We especially loved the outdoor spaces and the walkway to the beach. The cottage was comfortably furnished, and we appreciated the attention to detail throughout the home. The kitchen and amenities were really nice. (The refrigerator didn't shut on its own, though). Our one major complaint is that the bed in the downstairs bedroom was very creaky and seemed a bit unstable. It's probably time to replace the mattress and box springs; the current one is held up with a post and nail. Minor adjustments could include a covered trashcan in the kitchen and a replacement trashcan in the bathroom, and an upgrade to the coffee maker and a coffee grinder would be nice. The windows didn't stay open, which would have been nice; perhaps a mechanism to prop them open could be installed. We loved the golf carts, but some of the chargers near the Captain Charlie's cottages were not working. Overall we had a wonderful and relaxing week and plan to return to BHI!
