March madness/Intercoastal Realty
We just spent a week at March Madness. Everything was arranged through Intercoastal Realty and Baldhead Island. We have stayed at Baldhead Island at multiple locations over the last 25 years. Our family has grown and we had a group of 13 this time. Seven adults and six kids ranging 12 and under. Intercoastal did a great job of helping us with the rental, arranging tram reservations, And meeting us at the dock with our keys when we arrived. They were very responsive to any need that we had. The house itself was excellent. Multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. Multiple amenities including extra refrigerators, icemaker etc. Beautiful view of the marsh. Kitchen and den area or on the top floor. bedrooms are on the bottom four so if you have folks that have mobility problems just be aware. Three carts were a great amenity for the size of our family. Several bicycles. Location was clean and well-kept. We were very close to what we consider one of the best access to the beach. We were on the east beach side of the island. As far as our needs being met we would give this a five star location. If you come to the island expecting perfection, perfect timing of trams and inexpensive meals, you always have the chance of being disappointed. Baldhead Island is more expensive than some other locations so go ahead and budget accordingly for the journey and enjoy the journey.

Marsh Madness
We enjoyed staying in this home for a college/fraternity brothers and wives annual gathering. We stayed in this exact home 9 years ago, too. Typically, we don’t return to the same place for our annual event, but we decided to visit and stay here again based on our previous stay.
Overall, the house was good. We recognized there were challenges with Covid in terms of service, such as cleaning and other situations. While we faced a few initial hiccups, but the management company responded to our needs.
The kitchen is great with the large center island for serving. I recommend they invest in two large refrigerators to accommodate the amount of food and items needed for a stay beyond several days. The smaller frig is parked beside the regular kitchen sized refrigerator. For stays longer than 3 days, we would have been challenged to store our food brought to the island.
Please note that the 7 bedrooms are not 7 regular bedrooms for couples. One bedroom was a trundle suitable for children and the room housed toys. It had no full sized bathroom on the same floor.
All in all, it was a good trip. From our last experience in this house, I believe there are dated features, such as bathrooms and furnishings, especially for a house on BHI.

Thank you for your review and comments, we will pass along your feedback. We hope to see you all back on the island in the future for your annual gathering.

Great home and location
Our stay was for a corporate retreat. The home offered great sleeping accommodations as well as nice general meeting space in the living room/dining room for group meetings. The bikes and golf carts were great for some or our outdoor festivities. The home was well maintained. (Couple of light bulbs need to be replaced throughout the inside and outside of home)
Greg R - Posted: 10/19/2021
Thank you! We are thrilled to hear your corporate retreat went well, Marsh Madness is the perfect property for special events like yours. Come back soon!

Perfect vacation destination for large family or group of friends
We had a wonderful time celebrating my Mom's birthday here. Tons of space for our large group, and we really loved all the indoor/outdoor rooms. Perfect for kids, especially little ones - books, toys, gate at the top of the stairs, and more. Kitchen had all the utensils, pots & pans, spices, and anything else you might possibly need to cook with. Spotlessly clean. Management company (Pam in particular!) is very responsive and helpful. 10/10, would go again

Marsh Happiness!
Marsh Madness is a superior vacation rental! The bright and airy gathering space with a killer view and the well-appointed kitchen were highlights for our reunion group of six friends. We purchased a Club membership primarily for dining options; had we known the gourmet kitchen was equipped with everything we’d need (and more!) to prepare and serve wonderful apps and meals, we would have planned more dining “at home”! Even the golf carts were first class to match the house’s amenities. We hope to be able to stay here again.

House great - Ferry and Trams Bad
Been coming to Bald Head for four decades. House was great, highly recommend. However, Iv'e never seen the ferry and tram service so bad. They left us stranded both ways for hours, even with reservations made well in advance. Owners should get them the message to do better so guests aren't left with bad impression of their trip.
Carl W - Posted: 10/5/2021
Thank you for your review, we love Marsh Madness as well! I apologize you had issues with the tram and ferry, I will pass along your feedback to the Transportation Department. We hope to see you back on the island soon. Thank you!

Loved this house and booked again!
We have a large extended family with many children. The house was perfect for us. It was well-stocked with dishes and cookware, and we loved the location especially being so close to Shoals Club. The only negative experience is the fridge didn't work and we used a smaller rental fridge/freezer combo for the week which was challenging with so many people. Overall, we loved the layout of the home and booked it again for next year.

Marsh Madness Fun
Our family (now 14 of us) has been vacationing at BHI for 30 yrs. We have encountered hurdles accommodating our expanded family but MM is absolutely perfect for us. We loved the roominess of MM & well equipped kitchen. Staff was responsive when we had a small issue. Would love to rent MM again.

Not the first time and we will rent again...
As a renter at BHI for over 20 years, we can state with experience that this property is the most well maintained, furnished and stocked that we ever stay in. And this was our 3rd rental of this home. It is spotless. Perfect for a large family, dog friendly though you would never know a pet stepped foot inside. Close enough to the beach to walk there barefoot. And the marsh view has a unique beauty all its own.

Fall BHI Vacation
We loved the size of the house and the location. The kitchen was phenomenal. The golf carts were great. Our only suggestion - upgrade the crofter. Our expectation of cleanliness was not met.

Marsh Madness was an awesome house for our clan
Our family consisted of 5 couples, all related somehow. Families included two 1st-cousin toddler girls, plus two more 1st-cousin babies. Marsh Madness was perfect for our clan. 2 of 3 sets of grandparents stayed in the Crofter--peace and quiet. All others were in the main house. Kitchen is perfect for a large group--lots of silverware & dishes, two dishwashers, big pots, spices/foil etc. already in place. Dedicated ice maker! Huge kitchen table to gather around. Really well thought out. Fantastic view of the marsh. 3 golf carts! Front porch to sit on to watch kiddies play on deck. Fence around entire yard to keep kids safe. Easy walk to beach! Only thing missing--pot holders to take casseroles out of the oven. If that's the only thing missing this house is as close to perfect as you can get.

Thank you! We will definitely add pot holders, thank you!

Wilkinson Family Vacation
We had a very nice time and the property was very nice this was our second year in this property. We were not satisfied with the club amenities in regard to the Covid restrictions and scheduling issues. It was very restrictive and difficult but employees and management did there best with a hard situation.

Family Time at Bald Head Island
The home is beautiful, the location very nice. We did have some problems with communication with the realty company. We found it difficult to get answer to questions before our arrival. When we arrived, the third cart was not at the house. We were told it was being repaired and was given a loaner but only after we made the effort to go directly to the office of the realty co. and after we had spent $400 plus for another cart. The people in the office were polite and helpful but we would like to have had the info without having to track it down. I know you are not BHI Club but our experience with them dampened our experience at BHI. They were rude, and we could only reach them once for a time to swim - an expensive $850 swim that left my grown grandchildren with an extremely bad taste about the club. We are considering consulting a lawyer on their actions. Otherwise, thank you for a good week. P. Hall
Paula H - Posted: 6/16/2020
Thank you for you review on Marsh Madness!! I apologize you had issues with communication, due to COVID and migrating to a new software system at the same, we had a few setbacks. I'm sorry to hear the comments about the BHI Club, I would recommend contacting the General Manager to report your concerns. Despite the cart and BHI Club issue, we are thrilled to hear you all had a good week at Marsh Madness, it is such a beautiful home. Thank you!!

Mixed Reaction to Marsh Madness
We had the opportunity to rent Marsh Madness to accommodate our family for our daughter's wedding. The house is in a fantastic location with peaceful marsh views and incredible sunsets. When we checked in, the house was not as clean as it should be and the bathrooms looked like they had never been cleaned. We had a problem with ants and the Kitchen Aid ice machine would not work. We also could not locate the grill which was listed in the home's amenities. That being said, once we phoned Intracoastal Realty, we had immediate service. They were very professional and sent a cleaning crew out and someone to spray for ants. They let us know that they called an appliance service for the ice maker. They also let us know that the owner had taken the grill off the premises due to an incident. While I appreciate Intracoastal's quick response, there are things that this house should have with such a costly rental rate. At this price point you should not have to rent a grill or beach chairs and need to buy hangers. All appliances should be in working order. Kitchen cabinets were in such a disarray that you didn't know what you had on hand for food preparation. As past reviews have stated, there is a strong sulfur smell in the master bedroom.

Best views of marsh!
Beautiful property with spectacular views. Easy access to beach. Very well appointed, but impersonal. We found it odd that there is not a single picture on the wall. Almost felt like it wasn't finished.
