"We had been to BHI a few years ago and enjoyed it so much we thought it was a great place to celebrate a surprise wedding anniversary. We chose the condo owned by Theresa and Steve Moff. We were 4 adults and felt we had plenty of room. There was an unused loft that could easily have accommodated a couple more people with enough general space for all of us. Each of the bdrms had a deck. The condo is centrally located on BHI, with a large golf cart to get around the island.
They are teriffic people to work with. Very responsive regarding any questions. The condo was very clean, fully stocked with all the comforts of home, including a trash compactor. The setting of the condo is in lush foliage, with the pool right outside the door.
Make sure you drive around the island and hit the side streets....beautiful homes, trails, ponds with landings to walk out on for some great pics, view large turtles, and try to see an alligator that hangs out....we didn't see it. We took some up close (telephoto) pics of beautiful deer. The beach at the point was zen like although there was a tropical storm churning up the ocean. Very warm water. People all over BHI stop to talk...friendly. Shops/market close by. Ate dinner at delfinas that was tasty. Ferry ride was 20 minutes and enjoyable. Very efficient staff at both ends. The first time I had to park far away....long walk. This time I was able to get a close spot. 5 minute walk to ferry. There are a lot of dogs around. The owners r very conscious about controlling them. One of the ferry staff actually had dog treats that he gave out to the dogs on the ferry.
In spite of a poor forecast, we lucked out with some very good weather.
Met an interesting senior couple who live in the Royal James 8 months a year. Just know that time spent on BHI is very relaxing. If your a golfer, great. Beach lover, great. Like reading books, taking walks, hikes, cart rides. All good! Just spending time in the condo...also great. Old Baldy...turtle conservancy and other laid back things--- just enjoy. We did!"
