Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Kathleen's house is lovely - centrally located, cozy, and everything was smooth! We appreciate the prompt and detailed communication as we planned for a fabulous weekend on BHI. The last turtle nest of the year hatched just before we arrived, so we got to see the excavation and conservation of the remaining hatchlings - all made it to the water! Thanks for a lovely stay.

Perfect Bald Head Island Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Palm Cottage is absolutely lovely! It is so comfortable and offers everything vacationers need. We loved dining in the screened porch and were so pleased it could accommodate our guest!

The only issue we had was w/ the bikes, one was completely broken and the other, the chain came off if you stood up or changed gears. Might want to get rid of bikes or get new ones.

Other than that, perfect house and wonderful week at BHI!
