Outdated and dirty

  • 2 of 5

Location and house layout are great. However it has not been maintained well. It was not clean and you do not want to look under anything. We found pizza under one bed. DIRECTV did not work and the wifi system was very limited. The kitchen was inadequate and the pots need immediate replacement. Good Luck if you already have it rented.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for a large family to spend time together. 1 min walk to the beach or 30 second ride of the golf carts that are provided. Has great views from both the front and the back of the house. Only a 5 min ride to the store and centrally located on the island.

Sundance “The Best"

  • 5 of 5

The house exceeded our expectations with fabulous views out the rear windows of the Bald Head Island Club golf course and the ocean views out the front of the house. We joined the Bald Island Club for the week and utilized all their restaurants, played two rounds of Golf on their beautiful course, played tennis with the grandchildren and swam in their pool. A must do when on the Island. Everyone loved the “No Cars “ environment and had fun getting to the beaches by golf cart. The house was clean, comfortable and slept all twelve of us comfortably. All in all a great stay that we would highly recommend any family. The Moran's

Great property. Came as advertised. Awesome views of the golf course and ocean.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our week stay. We came down for a week stay for my son's wedding. The house was in very good condition and came as advertised. The owner and property manager were great to work with. About a month poor to my arriving, I had to change the dates for my stay, and the owner was very accomodating with making the change - no questions asked, and they made the change immediately. The house was in a good location as the rehearsal dinner was at the Shoal Club and the wedding at the Bald Island Club. The 6 and 4 passenger golf carts came in handy during the week, especially for visiting the guests who came down for the wedding as well as going to the harbor area and the marketplace. Overall, we had a wonderful experience, the house was perfect for our needs, the weather was perfect, and our stay was perfect. We will definitely rent this house again for future visits.

Overall happy with this rental

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this rental with 4 adults and 3 children. The size of the house was perfect. We enjoyed the golf carts (although they were not charged when we first got there due to being unplugged for the hurricane), the bikes (each member had the "perfect" bike), and fully equipped kitchen. There was a good view of the ocean and a very short walk to get to it. The elevator was a great service for bringing up all of the gear. Also, we have a family member wheelchair bound so we could not have a home without one. Some issues were, in our opinion, that the house could have been cleaner. There were tons of dust under the beds, dust on the fans, along with lots of dead cockroaches, a pot of fresh flowers that had been left on the coffee table in the main room that were rancid, stained sheets and the towels were very old. I think if the house had a deep cleaning, all linens updated and the washing machine fixed, or better yet replaced, the house would be absolutely awesome. Overall the space the house has to offer is great, along with a great location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
