Fantastic birthday!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent my birthday at A World Away and enjoyed every moment. The house was so inviting and comfortable. The location is fantastic.....the best on the island as far as we were concerned. Throughly enjoyed exploring the island in one of the two golf carts that were provided. Ate at MoJo's several times.....the food was delicious! In the evening we would sit on the deck and marvel at the gorgeous sunsets......and we loved watching the big ships that were coming and going from Wilmington. They were SO close you felt like you could just reach out and touch them. We enjoyed our time there so much that we extended our stay 4 days!

The owner, Sue, was delightful to deal with as was Brandy the manager. We are so looking forward to our next visit, in fact, I would go back yesterday!

Thank you Sue for sharing your wonderful home with us and we can't wait to return!

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting a very private, yet easy to get to, place to "chill" out. My husband and I absolutely loved it! We'll be back !

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

Location to the beach couldn't be better. Everything we needed to spend the day on the beach was located in the garage. The top balcony has the best view of any house on the island.

Impressive home in a more than impressive location

  • 5 of 5

This home was worth the price of admission. It was immaculate with a well appointed, attractive interior combined with a total feeling of privacy. The upper porch provided a totally unobstructed wide angle view of the beach and water.and of the magnificent sunsets. We shall return.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I have to say that this was one of my all time favorite vacations! Everything was beautiful! The house was amazing and the perfect location. We literally had the beach to ourselves! We collected so many shells, sand dollars and driftwood and the view is everchanging. While the upper deck affords the most beautiful views and sunsets, you can't miss seeing Old Baldy through any of the upstairs windows and as an added bonus you also get to enjoy Oak Island Lighthouse. There are two golf carts but we only used the four seater since it was just the two of us. We explored the entire island and went to Howl at the Moon (If you can, schedule your vacation during a full moon. This is an experience everyone should have! From the community coming together, the food, beach fire, the amazing gentleman on the bagpipes and then the entire group bursting into howls as a pink moon appeared... Unforgettable!!!!). Bald Head Island is the place for total relaxation and A World Away is the house you MUST stay in! Love the house, love the island and was welcomed by the local residents and made to feel as if we had lived there all along. Thank you to Susan Davis for making this trip possible and allowing us to make memories to last a lifetime! Looking forward to coming back soon!

Wonderful Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a real gem! Pictures don't do it justice. The location just can't be beat. You are close to the restaurants as well as the BHI Club and the sunsets are unbelievable! The home is comfortably furnished in a Tommy Bahama style, the kitchen is one of the best stocked kitchens that we have had in all the homes we have rented on BHI. You can clearly see that the owners take great pride in their home! Thank you so very much for sharing it with us! We will be back!

Very nice house and great location

Took my family for spring break and looked at a couple of colleges. Bald Head is laid back and awesome. House and carts were great.

Thanks
