A Golden Retreat
5/5 stars
We love BHI and the Golden Retreat on the creek did not disappoint! The sunrise was amazing from the porch and the living room. The kitchen was so well appointed for cooking our meals. The decor is beautiful and everything was so clean. It felt like home! Our boys loved fishing and kayaking right in the backyard and our dog loved sitting on the pier watching the birds. We would definitely stay at the Golden Retreat again!

Our stay at 9A Timbercreek on Bald Head could not have been better. As long-time visitors and former property owners on the island, this was our first visit back in several years. The island was beautiful - though quite chilly on those cart rides! - and the condo was perfect for us. The bedrooms were all tastefully appointed, and the main ‘great room’ furnished lovingly and bright, with a great view to the marsh. The kitchen was FULLY stocked with everything we needed to make most of our meals, as most F&B venues on the island were closed. We would love to rent again in the summer!

Golden Retreat was the perfect location to enjoy our stay on Bald Head Island for Thanksgiving week! The condo was beautifully appointed, the kitchen fully stocked with everything needed for quick bites and a full Thanksgiving dinner, the loft offered a unique space for our girls to relax and the porch offered incredible views of the marsh. We appreciated the use of the beach towels, chairs, and kayaks as we explored the marsh at low tide each day. We enjoyed our time at Golden Retreat and on Bald Head Island so much that we extended our stay and are already looking at our calendars with the hope of returning to this beautiful spot!

Golden Retreat is an amazing condo- great quiet location directly on Marsh with exceptional views from screened in porch/deck and deck off master bedroom and convenient to many island activities. Very recent renovations are beautiful. Bonus that rental agency is very professional and great to deal with. will definitely book condo again.

We had it all: a beautiful place to stay with a well stocked kitchen, the marsh, swimming pool and short golf cart ride to beach and market! We kayaked, fished and went crabbing, too. We ended our days on the porch for dinner and games, too. We had a great week, thank you!

Itrip is a wonderful booking system. They were very attentive and added a personal touch that you don't get from most rental agencies. When we had a question, they were always quick to respond. The property itself was great. The renovations were beautiful. Only complaint is that the back seat is rotted on the 4 passenger cart.

A Golden Retreat is a fabulous condo with a beautiful view. We have two teenagers and everyone was happy. Between marsh fishing, the kayaks, pool and beach we stayed busy. The kitchen had all we needed, the golf carts were in great shape and so was the grill. This isn’t our first stay on BHI or in Timbercreek and this is now one of our favorite BHI stays.
