Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Sleeps 12

Notice: The Bald Head Island Club remains in the midst of the exciting facilities improvement project. The pool and the new "Peli" are open for your enjoyment. Parking is limited at the temporary facility.

A World Away, located at 20 Captain Charlie's Court, is a serene oasis of stress-free vacationing! Located at the end of a semi-private cul-de-sac, this home boasts every amenity you need to escape the mundane world of the mainland and accomplish exactly what you come to Bald Head Island to do... RELAX!

This reverse-floor plan vacation home, nestled in the lovely Maritime Forest, delivers great views of the Old Baldy Lighthouse from its upper deck and porch. It’s also within easy walking distance of the marina, restaurants, lighthouse, Chapel and shops.

Located on the first floor is one of the home's two master suites as well as two more guest bedrooms-each with an en suite bathroom. The master suite features a king bed with its own private bathroom. The first of the two guest rooms is a bunk room with two twin bunks and two double beds. The second bedroom offers a queen bed. Both of these connect to an entertainment space that is equipped with a sleeper sofa (thus turning this into a possible fifth bedroom), a mini fridge, TV, games, a Sony PS2, a Wii, deck access and laundry facilities.

Upstairs is a modern, open, inviting great room featuring a cozy sitting area with fireplace. Look out the rounded living room window and see a perfect vision of the Old Baldy Lighthouse framed within. It is like living art! The updated kitchen offers sleek black granite counter tops and stainless appliances. The dining area comfortably seats eight, with three additional seats available at the kitchen bar. Of course, you can also dine on the deck or screened porch!

There is another master bedroom and bathroom upstairs, offering a king bed and private balcony. This master bathroom is artfully tiled and is accented by dual sinks and a jetted tub.

Visitors to A World Away enjoy wireless internet as well as access to fishing rods and adult and youngster golf clubs. A BHI Club membership (w/ golf access) is included with the rental. For an additional fee, a Shoals Club membership may be obtained.

Remember, with Wendy Wilmot Properties there are no surprise "add-on" expenses. Our homes' rental charges include the cleaning fees, payment for BHI Club memberships and the 24/7 services of our on-Island property you'll appreciate if your air conditioning goes out on the weekend or you get a golf cart flat after 5 PM.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was our second time staying on the island. This house was amazing. Very clean and the floor plan was perfect for a family with smaller kids and teenagers. A gentleman came and introduced himself the first afternoon we were there and someone else stopped by later in the week and left us a note with their number in case we needed anything. We have rented beach houses at least once a year for the last 12 years and that has never happened. I was very impressed! The decor is fabulous and the kitchen was impressive. Great appliances and everything you would need! Loved this house and rental company. Will be staying in this house again and recommending Wendy Wilmot Properties!

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed another great vacation on BHI thanks to WWP and A World Away. We have been coming to the island for several years and this was the first (but not last) with WWP and we will definitely keep the house on the future rotation depending on our needs. We had two families with 4 adults and 3 kids and the house was perfect for us. It was clean, well maintained, modernly furnished - including the kitchen. The house and furnishings had everything needed and more. All of the beds were comfortable and the kid's den was definitely appreciated by the parents. We had 1 minor issue with the golf cart battery charger but WWP resolved it quickly and had us back up and running in no time. It was no big concern to us, but my only suggestion would be to replace the outdoor grill - however I realize this is constant need with about every grill on the island as the elements definitely takes a toll on them. It was a rainy week for us, but I'm sure WWP would have definitely changed the weather if they could - they were great to work with and we look forward to using them again. We enjoyed the house and it will definitely be considered again.

A World Away is a lovely 4 bedroom home with very nice bathrooms in 3 bedrooms and also adjacent to the kids bedroom. The house is decorated well and the kitchen has everything you need. There is are two elevated decks with one screened. The two electric carts work well.

We loved our stay at A World Away! It was our first visit to Bald Head Island and we couldn't have had a more enjoyable time. The house was clean and had everything we needed. There were plenty of beach chairs and toys and the golf carts worked great. Our kids loved riding on them! We will definitely be back!

Reviewer Comments:

We had five children and five adults staying in this house. The lay-out is PERFECT as the kids room has its own tv/play area, allowing the adults to watch tv and visit upstairs. You're closer to the marina than the beach at this location but it's not long to the beach either considering you're on a small island! We also greatly appreciated all of the extras (e.g. fishing net, bikes, games) that were there & the well-outfitted kitchen. We would recommend extra beach towels to be at the house, new cushions for outside furniture in upper sitting deck, and a fix to the speakers from upstairs tv as they rattled from the tv sound.

Owner's Response: Dear Emily- Glad you A World Away worked well for your crew. Plus, thanks for the helpful insights on how we can make it an even better vacation spot. One way the owners followed up on this was to get new golf cart batteries. We look forward to seeing you back on BHI real soon and hope you will again let us serve you. F.A. McLeod, WWP, Marketing

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed our stay in this home and would consider staying here again if the golf carts were maintained better. Both were extremely slow and sluggish and the 4 seater when accelerating at night would interfere with the head lights. Additionally the out side shower was not working. Other then that this was an awesome very clean house with A very well equipped kitchen which we loved. The house size was perfect for 10 of us and we loved that the children had their own separate living area. WWP was very nice to deal with before and during our stay.

July 2017 Stay

We love this house and WWP rental company with the exception of the golf carts being slow and needing repairs at this home. We would def consider renting this home again if the carts are updated with new batteries. Thanks again for a great week.
