I would like to start this review by saying we love Bald Head Island and go there frequently renting vacation rentals and have even considered purchasing a home there. This rental was for a long weekend over fall break. I typically do not write reviews however, there were so many things wrong with this rental I had to share.
The best thing about this property is it’s location and proximity to the beach as well as it’s view of the ocean. It is just a short walk on the boardwalk to the beach.
It appears it is still in the process of still being renovated. It is a shame because the materials such as the tile, shiplap and flooring are new however; the installation looks terrible as if not done by professionals. For example, the paint job is horrible where you can see it was not painted in a straight line and the old color is showing through, the tile grout lines are all off, there are sheet rock plastering that has not been finished with paint. Additionally, the most of the faucet fixtures were installed backwards which we had to figure out while taking a cold shower. There are missing fixtures in one bathroom, one faucet is completely loose and there is no plug in one of the tubs. There are no toilet paper holders either. Also an electrical socket has no cover on it with wires sticking out, can lights with no covers on them and lights that do not work. In the 2nd large bedroom there is duct work showing the in closet that has no bar to hang clothes on with no the closet doors. There is only one TV in the house and none in the bedrooms. There were no local channels either so you can imagine how disappointed my Dad and Husband were with access to Sunday night football. The cleaning job was poor with dusty air vent and returns as well as smears on walls and stairs. To top it all off the golf cart could not hold a charge and broke down on me trying to go to church service Sunday and the replacement one that they brought us was rusted out with holes in the back footboard. That was when I lost it as my children could have gotten hurt on the something that dilapidated. We were told to go to the cart company and rent one for reimbursement. There are no window coverings on the first level and the furniture is very worn as well as small. In the bedrooms, there are the most flimsy 1 inch blinds that do not block out the light. Additionally, the air would not adjust up or down beyond 72 degrees. It seems like the neighborhood is in need of re
