“The house was spacious enough for 4 adults, 3 kids with plenty of room for more. Two master suites was perfect, and two king beds, can’t argue there. The kids room and area downstairs was a perfect to set up a play area for the young kids and all their toys. The house was equipped with everything we needed and pretty clean. Overall great stay, would definitely recommend.” Megan – August 2022

“A world Away has been a great rental for our family of six adults and five grandchildren. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots & pans and utensils. Just a perfect place to have a great vacation on BHI.” John – June 2022

“Thank you for all that you do!  This was a great rental for our family.” Jack – June 2022

“We have been going to Bald Head for years with my wife’s family but never booked the lodging ourselves. I contacted Tiffany with late notice and she got us a great place and no fuss! Tiffany was awesome at working with our requirements and getting us something that made sense for our family!” Rob – April 2022

I expected so much more of a headache trying to figure out ferry schedules and the tram. Tiffany took care of it all. Talk about a no stress experience to book our no stress vacation, it was perfect.

“Nice home and best service from a property manager EVER. We had to find a home to rent on BHI literally at the last minute when another home had been mistakenly double booked by a DIFFERENT property manager and Tiffany heard about our dilemma and literally came to our rescue and rescued what would have been a disaster with a family with kids already arriving on the island after dark and discovering they had no place to stay! Tiffany and her team give new definition to those old sayings about “going over and beyond” and “going the extra mile” and I will be forever grateful to Tiffany and her team. The house itself was nice and comfortable and had everything a family wants and needs. It is in a good location….:quiet and sequestered yet close to the harbor.” Tom – April 2022

“We enjoyed our week in this home. It was the perfect size and arrangement for our family of 12. The kitchen was very well equipped making it easy to prepare meals. The screened porch was nice to have. It was a great house for our group!” John -June 2021 

“With a view of Old Baldy off the deck, this house delivers a great family experience. The layout lets kiddos have space to themselves while the adults relax. The spacious kitchen can handle “serious” cooking and offers plenty of food storage. Lots of pool and beach toys on the property. This house is close to BHI Club and South Beach, as well as Marina, shops, and restaurants. But since driving the golf cart is half the fun of a trip to BHI, it’s no sweat to cross the island for other fun stuff. We highly recommend staying here!” Charles – June 2021

“A World Away was a great house for our group. With 4 teenagers, the set-up downstairs was perfect for us. Great customer service and great house!” Laura – June 2021

“The home has a great layout, it’s very clean and had everything we needed! Tiffany and her team were great to work with.” William – July 2020

“The house is lovely. We have worked with you many times over the years with some really fine properties but a World Away is really well designed and the kitchen was the best equipped we have seen.  I’m the cook, so I really appreciate this.” Shawn – March 2020
