Two Views is a professionally decorated beach front home in Middle Island designed by a noted architect with fabulous views of the marsh and the ocean. The house was totally reconstructed in 2006 when the main living area was relocated to the new second floor to take advantage of the spectacular views. All bedrooms open onto the covered first floor deck which wraps around the entire house and offers great views of the ocean and marsh from its many rocking chairs. They also open to a first floor Great room that has a TV area at one end and a quiet reading area at the other end. The upper front and rear decks offer dramatic ocean and marsh views. It is a one minute walk to the best beach on the island, East Beach. This 3400 square foot retreat is one of the largest homes on Bald Head Island and can accommodate your every need for a relaxing vacation.
We spent two terrific weeks at "Two Views" in June (we have rented several different houses at Bald Head in the past 4 years. This was our best). The name of the house says it all. Our "backyard" as our kids called it, was an uninterrupted view of the marsh all the way from the back deck on East Beach Rd to Old Baldy lighthouse at the other end of the island - in the morning, the upper deck in back was shaded and cool, and a fabulous place to watch the wildlife, or just read and sip coffee. This, while the deck at the other end was greeting the sun in the AM, over the ocean which is just across the street. Both front and back views are better any we know of and we couldn't get over how comfortable, and breezy both upstairs decks were - your pick, sun or shade.
The upstairs living/dining/kitchen is fabulous, and equipped with everything anyone would need, and the views out the picture windows at each end are as advertised!
The 5 bedrooms, all on the first floor, were spacious, very private, and each had their own bathroom. My wife and I were amazed that we never heard noise from the other rooms at night or morning - not from our grandchildren, 6 year old twins or their 10 month old cousin - nor from their parents for that matter.
We had a large extended family gathering, with others renting different houses, but Two Views was easily everyone's favorite gathering spot.
Well done Leslie and Tom
Owners = fantastic, considerate, talented. Two Views: wonderful. comfortable. comforting. well designed. fun. clean. cared for. and most of all, more than worth it. We found from the beginning the owners were terrific and have created a lovely vacation spot. Two views is just that - two incredible morning and evening views of the ocean, or at dusk a picturesque sunset. Easy access to beach. The club at the beach (BHI i think...) was awesome. What can we say - we fell in love with the Island and we'll be back. A lot of credit to the owners and their fantastic place. Can't say enough!
My family of 12 (8 adults and 4 grandchildren) had a wonderful time in Two Views. The house was roomy and accomodating to us, including the correct type of beds and the number of bathrooms. The kitchen was well stocked as well as was the beach equipment. It should really be called 360 views since there are gorgeous views in every direction. Thanks Tom and Lesley for sharing your amazing house.
This was our 3rd year renting Two Views. The house was immaculate and well stocked beyond what most rental homes have and totally organized. We love this house! The views are unique and make this spot so special to Bald Head, which we love and hope to continue to visit to for years to come.The location is so easy for grandchildren to get to the beach and nearby Shoals club for swimming.
Leslie and Tom have been very accommodating to any special requests.
The decorating is comfortable and easy and we love the huge dining room table which seats 12 for large family dinners.
Thanks you Leslie and Tom for sharing your special spot.

Two Views does not disappoint.This was our second stay in this lovely home.This time we vacationed with folks who had not been to the island before and they were impressed with the gorgeous views-both front and back! There are unobstructed ocean views as well as a magnificent marsh view.The house is stocked with all that anyone would possibly need and is comfortably and beautifully decorated.Each bedroom is ensuite (bunk room has bath right outside the door) so that all have privacy and space to get away from the crowd if desired.The dining room table is huge and enables everyone to share a meal together.Thank you Lesley for sharing your home and making the process so very easy.loved our stay!
We enjoyed our second stay at Two Views this summer and could not have been happier. The house is beautifully decorated and the layout is perfect for everyone in our family to enjoy their privacy yet spend time comfortably together! Two Views is ideally located so that we can walk to the beach with our little ones and return the house quickly if needed (as is often the case with little kids!) or take the golf cart and be at the Shoals Club in 2 minutes. Everything at Two Views is in great condition and all of our questions were addressed quickly. We have loved our past 2 vacations at Two Views and we hope to enjoy Two Views again next year!
Bald Head Island is the southernmost of North Carolina’s cape islands where the Cape Fear River meets the Atlantic Ocean. It is accessed by a 20 minute passenger ferry ride from the ferry terminal at Indigo Plantation and Marina in historic Southport, N.C. to the harbor at Bald Head Island. Once you arrive a shuttle will take you to Two Views and all further transportation on the island will be by foot, bicycle or our comfortable golf carts. The island has restaurants, shops, hardware store, full service grocery store (wine and beer only-bring liquor if desired), historic lighthouse and country club. The beaches are never crowded.
