About Dave and Nancy Passino

After vacationing with our family and friends on Bald Head Island for 10 years, we decided to purchase a home because we found there is no other place in the world like Bald Head Island.

Dave and Nancy Passino purchased this house in 2014

About Time is all about being on 'island time.' Spend a week or a month or more here and you will forget all about time.

What makes this house unique

The convenience of the location. About Time is close to everything!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved your home. We have stayed on the island before but your house was the best. It is well-stocked and we loved not having to bring beach chairs, beach towels, umbrellas, bikes, beach toys, and games. The kids enjoyed the dvds the afternoon it rained. Having two golf carts was great. The kids seemed to figure out which one was faster right away. We will be sure to return to your house again. Thank you!

Good Value for BHI

  • 3 of 5

The house was well stocked and it was great to have enough beach towels so we didn't have to bring our own. Kitchen had spices and some condiments which was helpful when we cooked. Only thing I would change was house was not as clean as I would have hoped. Owners might want to keep track of housekeepers a bit better. Showers and trim around stalls were thick with grime. Under beds and under sofa cushions were COVERED in sand and hair, trash, etc. we did not notice this until we had to search for a lost item that had rolled underneath. Yikes! Housekeepers Must be rushing through during turnover days and this house has not had a deep clean in a LONG time. Back porch was especially unkempt w weak/ rusty fan, rugs had strong moldy odor and lights on front stairs were not working. This was a big safety issue after dark.

Owner's Response: I appreciate your feedback. This is the first time we have had any comments or calls regarding the cleanliness of our home, hence I have immediately brought it to the staff's attention. Since we employ a full time management, cleaning, and maintenance staff on the island, they can be contacted anytime during your stay to address any issue you may have. They will be happy to handle any and all issues ASAP. We take pride in our home and want each guest to have a great experience. There are signs throughout the home with the number to call at anytime to address any and all of your needs .... from light bulbs to cleaning issues. Just let them know. In fact the fan has been replaced as well as the rug in question which was in the storage area but must have been moved by a renter. This happens from time to time, even though we ask people to please leave things, furniture, etc. in the same place. I have asthma myself so the home is checked regularly for any signs of any type of smell, etc.

Perfect central location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was just what we wanted for its central location on the island -- convenient to both clubs, market, etc! Everything was as promised, and the owners were a delight to work with. We will definitely keep this in mind for future stays!

'About Time' is centrally located on the island, and situated close to everything! After vacationing with our family and friends on Bald Head Island for 10 years, we decided to purchase a home because we found there is no other place in the world like Bald Head Island.

Bald Head Island offers so much. Spend a day at the beach, enjoy crabbing in the marsh or fishing, shop the specialty shops on the island, take a tour of the lighthouse, walk the nature trails, or sit poolside and enjoy a cold drink. Endless days doing whatever you want to do without the worry of traffic, a car, parking, or crowded beaches. It's all about 'Island Time.' Come once and you will be sure to return, again and again!

A minimum three-night stay required in the off season.
