Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Sleeps 12

A World Away, located at 20 Captain Charlie's Court, is a fantastic 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 is a reverse floor plan vacation home, nestled in the lovely maritime forest, with great views of the Old Baldy Lighthouse from the upper deck and porch. You will also be within easy walking distance to the marina, restaurants 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 on the lower level 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 features 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, stainless steel appliances, and a wine rack. 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, proffering a king bed and private balcony. This master bathroom is artfully tiled and features 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.

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 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.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a beautiful week saying in this wonderful home. The extended family, which included six (6) adults and five (5) boys had plenty of room. Everyone had his or her space, and there was no waiting for the bathroom. Also, plenty of hot water. Wifi was more than adequate as we had little to no complaints from the boys who were constantly on their smart devices. The patios were great for relaxing with morning coffee or a late night cocktail. It was immaculately cleaned prior to our arrival. The starter kit of supplies was sufficient to get us through the first couple of days - certainly enough time to get to the market. There were several bikes for adults and kids. Additionally, while we did not use them, there were beach toys, coolers and beach chairs at our disposal. Additionally, the golf carts worked fine. Although the carts were a bit slow, they got us to where we were going. Do make sure to charge the golf carts whenever they are parked at the house as they will loose a charge transporting all around the island. We forgot to sufficiently charge the four seater twice and in each instance it lost charge on the way back from Shoals. Once was at night. When we called with any concerns, WWP was "jonny on the spot." We notified them of a couple of the patio doors "sticking" and maintenance was on it the next day. One of the golf cart charger's cords snapped - had a new charger early the next morning. Thoroughly impressed with WPP and this house.

The house was very clean and in great condition. The bunk bed was perfect for the three boys and the house came with lots of games, video games and toys (we couldn't get the Wii to work, but didn't need it). We loved the location which was close to the ferry and the beach. The kids loved that we could see Old Baldy in one of the portholes.
