Blackbeard's Return
5/5 stars
Great house. We love the layout. Super clean and well stocked with board games and puzzles. The picture clarity on the TV's was exceptional. And our Yellow Lab loved that he had a short walk to the pond beside #9 green for his daily swims. Easy walk to the beach. We didn't want to leave and we will definitely come back. The one little issue with the dishwasher was IMMEDIATELY tended to by your maintenance crew. Thanks.

Blackbeard"s Return was a perfect choice for our first BHI visit as it provided great logistics to all locations-shops-beach-dog walking-clubs-ferry etc. The house worked well for 7 adults and 3 dogs. I have noted per my VRBO review that I would recommend "tick" repelent be available as ticks were plentiful.In addition,I noted that the first floor "kink" br toilet would run. I also recommended that the outdoor shower stall have hooks inside for towel and clothing. Madison is a great asset to your "family" biz and I wish you continued positive health and success.

Clark, thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We'll make sure to let other renters know the ticks are bad while taking the dogs for a walk. We have recently fixed the master bathroom toilet and have gotten some new hooks for the outdoor shower. We appreciate your feedback and hope you book with us at this property or the many others that we manage as well. Thank you for supporting a local family business. Thanks for tripping with iTrip!

We loved our little getaway. It was a wonderful house plenty of room for five adults and two young children. The only thing we wished was if the house had a closer beach access or a better view of the ocean. The management company was awesome. They gave us a refund for the pet fee since we didn’t end up bring the dogs and for us helping clean out the outside trash cans with out us even asking! I would love to stay at the house again but would love to stay with any house iTrip has because of their wonderful customer.

ITrip did a great job in keeping in touch prior to our visit as well as during our stay at BHI. Our biggest disappointment was the view from the terrace onto a field of dead trees being hauled in daily by big trucks which was not shown in the pictures. The location of the house was great but the noise from the trucks and the club was not relaxing. Also the upstair bedrooms had no mirrors or lamps for reading except a light in the fan. The positives that it was clean, kitchen was well equipped and the golf carts made it easy to access the island. After getting a feel for the island, I will be renting from ITRIP again but a different home. Claire

Claire, thank you for your review! We appreciate your feedback on your stay at Blackbeard's Return and sincerely apologize for the noise and view of the workers removing brush during your stay. Unfortunately, this happens after having a hurricane, and they will be done soon. We know this kept you from fully relaxing, but we are happy you still had an enjoyable time with a well-equipped kitchen and golf carts to easily get around Bald Head Island. We would love to have you book with us again. We manage many other properties you may be interested in for next time. Thanks for tripping with iTrip!

We have been vacationing to Bald Head Island for over 13 years. Blackbeard’s Return was one of the best experiences we have ever had on the island! We vacationed shortly after hurricane Isaias, and everything was wonderful. The island was still cleaning up from the hurricane, but Blackbeard’s return was ready for our arrival without any issues. Everything in the house is well labeled and the house is very well laid out. We have small children, and the house had ample room for them to play and have a great time. The kitchen was well stocked, and by far the BEST kitchen we have ever had in a rental. Every appliance you could ever need was available and well cleaned. There were plenty of enough towels for everyone. The house has amazing views of the ocean and golf course. It is within walking distance to the BHI club, making it very easy to walk back and forth with small children. There were 2 awesome golf carts that worked well for our family. The house gives you the opportunity to join both the BHI Club and Shoals Club. itrip vacations was very easy to work with and made this an awesome experience for the whole family. Overall, we had a blast! We HIGHLY recommend Blackbeard’s Return and itrip vacations! We will definitely be back!!!

We had a fantastic week and stay with a group of our friends. The house was very clean and well stocked with all the necessities (We left deciding that we needed the Ninja Air Fryer / Instapot combo that they had in the kitchen!). Great location next to the beach and BHI Club, easy to access to main roads for bike rides/running/walks, and great porches for coffee in the AM and chatting about the day over drinks at night. Would recommend over and over, and are already planning our next trip to the island!

We had a great time in BHI. The management team was excellent! They always checked on us to see if we needed anything, were available by text at any time, and when our golf cart broke down they offered their own until they could get ours fixed. Five stars all the way!

A wonderful house with great use of space and perfect for our 2 families! Everything seemed new and clean. Bathrooms were renovated and spacious and kitchen is updated with everything you will need. Porches allowed for a variety of views and screened in porch was our favorite spot to drink coffee in the morning or wine at night. It is super close to the BHI club and the kids would just walk there regularly for a swim. Two golf carts are in great condition and easy to drive with no battery issues. We loved the outdoor shower and everyone showered there throughout our stay. Highly recommend this house!!
