Once you step off the short and fun "BHI Ferry Ride" departing from the quaint town of Southport, North Carolina, you will fall in love with Bald Head Island and all it has to offer. Bald Head has a unique island setting where the only wheels allowed are golf carts, bikes, and scooters. Even though you are only 5 minutes away from the ocean so say 'goodbye' to the stress of everyday life and 'hello' to much more than a beach vacation.

Nature abounds around this comfortable, 4-bedroom, 4 1/2-bath enchanted cottage home. Nestled in the sub-tropical maritime forest, amid the ancient live oaks and sabal palm trees, this charming family home is surrounded by a deck with views of the lake and golf course. This delightful cottage also features a garage, with golf carts for your use. Tooling around on the island in the cart is half the fun of getting to your island destination

My family and I spent a week at the house. It was well equipped including an outdoor shower, 2 golf carts (one with seat belts), sand toys, and chairs. It was close to Maritime Market and not far from the Marina. Greg and Bianca from iTrip were very helpful and stayed around until the new dryer was installed. The upstairs screened-in, outdoor deck was wonderful for having breakfast and relaxing! The house does have quite a few stairs, so if you have older family members who have trouble with stairs, it may not be a good choice.

We had a fantastic few days in this lovely house. We were here with elderly parents and a 17 year old mad keen golfer!! There was something for everyone including our two senior dogs. the house was clean, practical,comfortable and spacious. There were 2 golf buggies provided which was great with people wanting to do different things. The outside space was lovely especially the chairs down by the water looking onto the 15th hole of the golf.

Our group had an excellent vacation at Big Mommas Fish House on Bald Head Island. The house was well equipped and comfortable. Our agent, Greg, did a great job making sure that all was good to go even though a power outage hit BHI just before our arrival. We highly recommend the Turtle Walk tour through the BHI Conservancy. A very enjoyable week!!

We have just arrived home from a five night, family vacation, and we're already missing Bald Head. There were seven of us on this trip (youngest is 20) and the house was ver comfortable for us all. The sleeping arrangements were perfect for us and the house was spacious enough for us all to have room to lounge about. The Dining Room was big enough for us to gather around the table for family meals. While it's an interior lot with no ocean view, the beautiful view of the lake and golf course are great. We enjoyed sitting on the porch with coffee in the mornings watching the wildlife! The house came with two golf carts, so transportation around the island was simple. We traveled from East Beach to the Harbor to the Market to Old Baldy and back again with ease. A great house in a great central location that is comfortable for a large group. We look forward to coming back soon!

We really enjoyed our weekend at Bald Head Island. This home is beautiful and in a great location. All the family loved using the three golf carts - very hand indeed. There were a couple of issues that were addressed quickly, and I found that Elisa was very responsive to my queries. My only complaint is the home is said to sleep 12, but truly it accommodates 8 adults well, possibly 9. For families with young children, though, the cots provided would be ideal.

We have stayed at many different properties on BHI and this is the only one that has disappointed. On the plus side, it has beautiful windows that are fringed with trees, and nice screen porches. However, it also has COCKROACHES - big ones, and plenty of them. The kitchen was grimy, with visible food spillage on the cooking surfaces and in the oven. It is far from the 'high end' it advertises itself to be. The beds are outfitted with cheap, hard mattresses and old (& in one case, stained) linens. Really poor cleaning service and barebones amenities in the house. There are plenty of better options for hard-earned vacation time & money - renters beware of this one!
Reviewed on Jul 7, 2017 by Judy, Cary, NC   Report

We agree with the renter that this home has great views from the large windows and both large screened porches but couldn’t disagree more with some of the other comments. This home has great amenities that include 3 carts capable of 14 passengers, 4 well maintained bikes, surf boards, boogie boards, other beach toys, 6 beach chairs, and a new gas grill. Top end furniture, appliances and mattresses make this home consistently score high in reviews, 4.9 out of 5 on HomeAway, VRBO, Vacation rentals and others. The home was inspected and if the cleaning and linens where not up to an expected standard the renter should have called us; we would have had someone there that day. The home is treated for pests on a consistent schedule, if we were told of bugs we could have a professional there same day to treat with safe chemicals. It is disappointing to hear of these issues after departure when talked to the renter during their stay and there was nothing said? This is an inexplicable review when this property has all 5’s and only one 4 rating in the last 3 years.

We had a relaxing stay at Big Momma's Fish House. It was our first time on Bald Head Island and we had a wonderful time. The house was so nice and spacious. The kitchen had everything we could ask for. We ate most dinners at the house since it was so nice. We loved going to East Beach and took the history tour. We even did the turtle trot 5k. Thanks again for a wonderful stay. The Bairds
