The four of us LOVED this house; it was perfect as we each had our own bedroom and bath.  The weather wasn't ideal but since we are game players, it worked out great... an excuse to stay in and keep playing.  The kitchen is well stocked and the grill was easy to use.  Easy access to both golf carts.  The home is well decorated and was VERY clean.  It has a great screened in porch with lounge furniture as well as a large table for eating.  Mike was super to work with.  Also, good location to everything.  Highly recommend!

Family Tides rocks!!! We were here for 8 nights and absolutely loved it! Don't let past reviews fool you, this is a great house and made for a great vacation. This is our 11th trip as a family to BHI, and this was definitely one of our favorite stays. With the weather still a little chilly this time of year, we had plenty of time to relax in the house and enjoy playing games together around the large kitchen table. The kitchen was well stocked and very clean, perfect for cooking family dinners and snacks. The living room had plenty of seating and was very cozy for watching basketball games together. We really enjoyed the brand new carpet throughout the house as well. One of the best things was that each bedroom has its own bathroom with it! It was so nice to have four full baths! The screened porch out back was very spacious, and it was great to have a porch upstairs too! Overall, this was a fantastic house, and we were so happy with everything. Definitely one of our best choices on the island. Michael was great to work with as well, and was very accommodating.

Lovely home in a central location on the island. This was our thirteenth year on Bald Head and our 10th different home. It was one of the best for the price. Comfortable, spacious, quiet, lots of places for our group to be together- or split up to read, play games, relax. The property manager was very responsive to our needs for a few items. We would definitely return!

We were also first-timers to BHI and I can't say enough positive things about the house and the island... as both were perfect and our family had a blast! I can only echo all the positive comments that others have stated in their reviews regarding the house. I would most like to comment on how great the house manager (Michael) was. Michael was more than responsive to any question or need that we had, both during the reservation process and while on the island. One example was when we realized the gas grill looked a little rusty and unsafe. I contacted Michael and he immediately delivered us his personal grill from his home. The next day he had the local hardware store deliver a brand new gas grill and he came by himself to remove the old gas grill. That's what I call excellent service! Once again, Michael was fantastic!

Plenty of room for four couples and a baby. Great kitchen- roomy enough for all hands to help cook. It was nice to have a dining room table big enough for all of us to eat together and play cards at night. Living room and porch very roomy and comfortable. Having a bathroom for each bedroom was great. We appreciated Mike's helpfulness in making our stay enjoyable. He was there to answer all our questions and provide extras. A perfect place to stay for our family vacation.

We enjoyed our stay at Family Tides. We had 5 adults and three kids. There is a nice and open main room but also little nooks and crannies for alone time (screened in back porch, upstairs loft area, upstairs deck.) The house was very clean and well maintained. Mike was helpful when we had questions. The kitchen is well equipped and the kids enjoyed sitting on the stools at the breakfast bar. The location is good- cool and quiet, about a five minute drive to the beach. The first floor master suite was perfect for my parents with limited mobility. It was especially nice to have four bathrooms!

We have been to BHI a few times and always enjoyed it, and this was no exception. Great location, clean house, plenty of room for 5 adults and 2 kids. Location is very convenient to beach, ferry, and stores... Highly recommend this house.

My family and my sister's family recently stayed at Family Tides. The description was highly accurate, and photos didn't do the place justice for how nice it really looked. The property is centrally located on the island and was located very near the beach, with only a short drive from the market and marina areas. Getting in, the house was very clean, and had plenty of bedrooms to accommodate all of the adults and kids. We had no problem finding anything in the house, and the owner was very responsive when we had to call him.

We loved the large, screened-in back porch and cozy atmosphere. The garage was well-stocked with beach-chairs, umbrellas, fishing gear and beach toys. One of the golf carts seemed to have a failing battery, but we never had any issue with it otherwise. We've stayed on BHI many times in rental properties and this is the first one that felt like a hotel. Many consumables (shampoo, dish detergent, towels, trash bags, basic cooking supplies) were included and substantially reduced the amount of luggage we needed to bring over from the mainland.

We loved Family Tides, and would recommend it to anyone!

This was our first visit to BHI and Family Tides was the perfect place for our family. The house was extremely clean, great rooms, quiet, and large screened in back porch where we ate dinner most nights. The kitchen was well appointed and we made great memories as a family. We loved jumping in the golf carts with just a short ride to multiple beaches. The owners were very helpful in getting information to us prior to the trip in regards to packing and taking the ferry. I would definitely recommend Family Tides to anyone looking for a spacious and quiet vacation home. We hope to come back. Beautiful home & beautiful island.
