About Wade Davis
Grandparents who love the family time we have together on BHI. We come as often as possible, making our home available for others to enjoy.
Wade Davis purchased this House in 2014
Why Wade Davis chose Bald Head Island
Our daughter was married on BHI at the Village Chapel in 2009 and we fell in love with the island. In 2014 we sold our beach home (another NC beach) to buy @ BHI. Nothing like it...unique, relaxing, and peaceful. Nature at it's very best, with rides on the golf carts always a great adventure and pleasure.
Pool / Spa
Perfect home with everything you need for your time at BHI! The loft space for perfect for our teen son and his friend while the 2nd bedroom downstairs worked great for our tween and her friend. 3 baths meant each pair had their own. Kitchen incredibly well stocked. While we did come to enjoy the island, the beach and the pool, the TVs were also terrific for nighttime and resting. My favorite spot was the quiet back porch.
Another plus was the community pool. We spent tons of time there and loved having it so close.
Wonderful and responsive owners. We’ve been coming to Bald Head for 15 years and I have to rate this among our favorite homes. Would definitely stay again!
Great house and amenities!
Have been to Bald Head 8 times and this is one of the nicer places. Would highly recommend staying here.
Owners are extremely attentive. Property is centrally located making it accessible to everything!
Perfect Cottage - best beach vacation accommodations!
I cannot say enough about this home - it's loved and one of the very best that we've stayed in! Nicely appointed, clean and comfortable, stocked kitchen, roomy, tv's throughout, games, bikes, golf carts, beach chairs - everything anyone would need for a great beach vacation. The location was perfect for us - tucked in the forest near the shops and only a 5 minute golf cart ride to the beaches. We'll be back next year :-)
Very well kept, neat, well equipped and very comfortable
The owners have created a home that is very appealing and wonderfully decorated. We felt very much at "home" and found everything to be in excellent working order. BHI is one of those "hidden" gems that everyone would enjoy and we plan to go back. I cannot say enough good things about the entire experience, setup and transaction was very easy and the owner is excellent to work with, I would highly recommend this particular home!
Great Rental on Bald Head!
Some owners are in the business of "rental-only" properties -- minimizing investment into their homes in every way...from decor to amenities. This is NOT the case with Merrytime. From the moment you enter the home, it is clear that the Davis' have created a Bald Head property the way that they would want it for themselves (or at least it feels that way). This is noticeable from the way it is decorated to the little details that haven't been forgotten (like kitchen utensils, beach chairs/umbrellas, grill w/ hardline propane, etc.). The cleaning service does an adequate job between rentals as the home seemed clean and smelled pleasant. The Davis’ were very easy to work with and professional in their process to rent the home. When we promptly received our security deposit back, it came with a thoughtful thank you note – a really nice touch. The more we stay on Bald Head, the more we like this central Forest location. Undoubtedly, we find ourselves regularly running from one side of the island to the other. This location makes it very easy to get everywhere…not to mention the nice temperature differential in the forest. The bottom line…when you find a property that makes you say “this is how I would want my Bald Head property to be”, it’s a winner! Of course, as with any rental, the Davis’ will need to keep up the good work and investment in their property to keep it in tip-top shape. A couple places for critical feedback were:
1. The front door locks were almost un-useable from salt air, etc. I ran to the hardware store and picked up a tube of graphite…this completely solved the problem. Would have thought the cleaning crew and/or maintenance contractors would have brought this issue to the owner’s attention given it was such an easy and inexpensive fix
2. We found the blue golf cart spectacular. The white cart is getting over-the-hill and is due for an overhaul or replacement (brakes questionable, etc.). We had no issues at all with the white cart…just an observation as to future longevity
3. The umbrellas are a great offering (although one that doesn’t easily stand the test of time)…this season seems to have been tough on them as they are getting to their last legs. This would be an easy thing to not update / replace. I would suggest though that the little things like this make all the difference
Thank you Davis’ for sharing your home – we had a fantastic time and hope to come back soon!
