About Jonathan Greenwood
We live and work in Raleigh, NC. From the ride to the island on the ferry to the golf cart and bicycle mode of transport on the island, we love the whole ambiance of BHI. The beaches are beautiful. The renowned BHI Club golf course is spectacular after the renovations in 2010-11.
Jonathan Greenwood purchased this House in 2014
Why Jonathan Greenwood chose Cape Fear Station
BHI is only accessible by ferry or private boats, so you leave the hectic everyday lifestyles behind as you take the 20 minute ferry ride to the island. While on the island, everyone rides to the clubs, beach, etc in golf carts or bicycles. Time slows and is measured by the sounds of the surf, known as 'turtle time'. It is the ultimate getaway.
What makes this House unique
Lounging on the beach with a book or enjoying a dip in one of the clubs' pools or just enjoying the scenery and wildlife helps put everything back into priority and the proper focus.
Sports & Adventure Activities
Wonderful property with all of the amenities we needed
First off, John was extremely helpful and accommodating. He answered all of our questions in a timely manner and insured we had a good trip. He knew we had a newborn so he allowed us to use their pack and play as well as check in a little early to get our son settled in.
The property is really nice and convenient to where we were attending a wedding. The crofter allowed family that would want more privacy anyways a comfy place to stay. The house is set up so there's room for entertaining but also a place to go for some quiet time. John provided detailed instructions to help our stay and everything we would need was included. We picked this place due to the proximity to our wedding, but it is a great place for anyone to stay for a little time away. Thanks!
Bald Head Island and the accomdations were memorable
We had such a great time relaxing, fishing, crabbing on bald head island! We recommend this rental to anyone looking for the complete package in a beach property. Thanks for sharing your home away from home!
I am glad that you enjoyed your time at my home. You are welcome to come back anytime!
Property needs attention
Though we travel often, this was our first trip to BHI. We were only there for a weekend to attend a family wedding. We spent way too much time dealing with maintenance issues. It appears the owner hasn't been there in quite some time. Upon arrival, we found all the light bulbs in the crofter were out, the garage door was open, there was a horrid smell in the crofter(remained that way the entire weekend), light bulb out(another one blew the following day), one golf cart was missing the arm, the other one had a flat tire the second day we were there, the Keurig coffeemaker was not working(necessitating a trip to the market the next morning for ground coffee to use the other one), the furniture in the great room was stained and the armchair arm torn,three of the six the dining room chairs were in disrepair(legs loose, seats not attached), the kitchen was very sparsely furnished(only five glasses, no measuring spoons,very limited lighting, etc), the hose was missing from the garage, the screen was slit in the porch off the bedrooms (looked like someone had tried to break in), the bedroom door was unlocked to that porch upon arrival. Not sure who checks after one renter leaves and the next arrive, but I feel we didn't get much value for our $.
We do everything we can to allow our guests to have have best visit possible. All of the issues posted by the renter (and first time BHI visitor) are currently being addressed.
It should also be noted that I have maintained a solid rating on VRBO due to the level of service provided to guests. This particular guest felt the need to update us on the island weather multiple times a day. Most of the "issues" are very minor and couple happen at any home. The guest even complained about getting a flat tire while driving around the island? The tire was fully inflated when she arrived. I received notification of the flat tire Saturday evening and had it replaced Sunday morning by 10am. This renter also complained that a decorative telescope did not work!
I value all renters and take their feedback seriously. Everyone is not suited for island life on BHI. I will continue to improve my property to make it more enjoyable for future guests. All future guests are welcome to reach out to me personally if they have any concerns prior to booking my property. Thank you
great family vacation
Thought it was a great location and good place for a family our size. Had a few issues with cockroaches and other pests, but think that is probably common to all the cottages on BHI. Overall, really enjoyed the stay and our family had a wonderful time.
A couple of things I would have wanted to know about this house
There are a few things I would have wanted to know about this house before renting it:
One, the 3rd bedroom is above the crofter which is actually about 20-30 yards away from the house (i.e., it is down a common driveway with one other house actually between this house and the crofter). My 18 year old daughter stayed in that bedroom but I had to walk her out there each night. Also, there is no Wi-Fi in this bedroom.
Two, the bedrooms in the house back up to Federal so in the morning if you are a lite sleeper it could be a bit noisy with the golf carts and delivery/construction/maintenance trucks/carts going by.
Know that we had a good time staying here and I am not saying this property is bad, I would say it was just okay compared to others I have stayed in on BHI.
One other thing to note is my cell phone coverage was awful (I have Verizon) so if you are unlucky enough to need to have any work calls while here, forget it. This is not a problem with this house in particular, but really this end of the island......
Soo fun everything you need!
