Easily a Five Star Home!

  • 5 of 5

Palm Cottage was the third home we rented at Bald Head Island in as many years and is by far the best. The comfort level of the home is outstanding. Each bedroom has great mattresses for a comfortable night sleep with the rest of the house well appointed from a comfort level as well. The little things are taken care of - bikes in the garage that work, plenty of towels, new appliances and a fresh coat of paint with newly finished floors. The porches provide great additional areas to enjoy the outdoors. The decor of the home is very well done. We like the location in the forest since it is basically the "center" of the island. Lastly, Kathleen is great to work with - responsive, conscientious and definitely committed to ensuring her guests enjoy their time on BHI. I don't often make recommendations but I do recommend Palm Cottage.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this lovely house twice in the past year. Our first visit to Bald Head in April and we were lucky enough the house was available again in December. Everything you need is right there. Fully heated and air conditioned. Full size washer and dryer and dishwasher. The kitchen has plenty of cookware and dishes. We had a good time cooking all together. There is a breakfast nook and a separate dining room. The large front porch is perfect for enjoying your morning coffee and we loved the huge screened in back porch for family game night or for the kids activities There is very large table and chairs set up there. There is also a smaller sitting area for relaxing with a book. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, but were close enough to the shops and the beach to make it convenient. Will definitely rent the house again next time we vacation at Bald Head!

Had a delightful girls getaway at the Palm Cottage! The home is beautiful and there's nowhere more relaxing than BHI. The home is comfortable and has just the right amount of space, including a huge front porch! The amenities are wonderful also. I will return as soon as possible and recommend this rental property!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time when we stayed at Palm Cottage. This home is immaculate, spacious and beautifully furnished. We spent countless hours relaxing on both the front porch and back deck, both covered which provided double the living space. The island is a gem in itself and unlike any other beach experience I've ever had. The owners are easy to work with and diligent to make sure you have an enjoyable stay. Five stars for this one! I wish this were my permanent residence!

Everything and More

  • 5 of 5

This was everything we had hoped for and more. My favorite part is how many wonderful seating areas there are...I would just bop back and forth from one to another, enjoying the views from each. The table that seats 8-10 on the screened porch can't be beat and welcomed us many a night, making cooking in even more enjoyable than eating out. It was nice to be so close to the market and to have a choice between the Shoals Club or BHI for our weekly membership. Kathleen was always so responsive and very easy to work with and seemed genuinely interested in making our stay as enjoyable as possible.
