EXCEPTIONAL LUXURY HOME, EASY BEACH ACCESS, IDEAL FOR 2 FAMILIES, CLUBS INCLUDED

Bald Head Island House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 4 and 1/2 bathrooms, sleeps 12

Our custom-built, professionally decorated & designed home luxuriously accommodates multiple families. With 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, our home is the perfect destination for two or three families to share. Conveniently located in the heart of Cape Fear Station, we're just four blocks away from the Shoals Club and East Beach, and one block away from the Turtle Conservancy and South Beach.

We've thought of every detail to make your Bald Head Island vacation one you will never forget! Temporary memberships to the Bald Head Island Club AND the Shoals Club are included in your rental rate, so you won't have to worry about making special arrangements for club access. The BHI Club’s amenities include golf course, pool, fitness center, tennis courts, playground, and informal and formal dining. Please note that we're Sports Members of the BHI Club, so you'll have full access to the world-class BHI Golf Course when you stay at Rum Runner! The Shoals Club, which is a short walk from our home, features a spectacular pool overlooking the Point, beach access, a fitness center, and fine dining. The sunset views at the Shoals Club make cocktail and dinner hour a spectacular experience.

Our home is meticulously maintained and will provide a restful and comfortable retreat from your day's activities. Our open floor plan makes it easy for the whole group to be together, while our private bedroom suites make it just as easy for you to get away for quiet time when needed! Our fully-equipped kitchen features top of the line appliances for the gourmet cook, and you'll find all of the pots and pans, cooking utensils, and serving dishes that you could ever want. The Maritime Market is just a short bike or golf-cart ride away, making grocery shopping a breeze. Don’t feel like cooking? Walk over to the Shoals Club for a light meal at the Sandbar Grille or a gourmet dinner in the dining room, or take the short drive up to the harbor for a delicious meal at Delphina Cantina!

Our inviting home sleeps 12 people comfortably, which is a rarity on BHI! We have three master bedroom suites, each with a queen bed and an attached full bath. A fourth bedroom is outfitted with two built-in bunk beds and floor space for additional children, creating the perfect kids’ room. A fifth bedroom has two twin beds, and shares a full bathroom with the bunk bedroom. The family room provides a central meeting area and includes a flat screen TV, stereo, DVD/VCR player, and games, books and movies for family entertainment. Three of the bedrooms also feature TVs and DVD players.

A spacious screened porch creates a perfect outdoor dining space or relaxing retreat at the end of the day. Our wrap-around front and side porch makes it easy to walk from front to back yard, and our wooden driveway and quiet back-alley provide a fun place for children to bounce a tennis ball or scooter. We're just steps away from The Commons, where you will enjoy walking, biking, playing Frisbee or maybe even a game of touch football!

Two golf carts, one 6-seater and one 4-seater, are provided for your use. We have two beautiful beach-cruiser bikes for you to use and enjoy during your stay, as well as eight beach chairs and several boogie boards. Your toughest decision during your visit to our home will be which fun (or quiet) activity to do next!

loved every bit of it

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this property with 3 families of 4, plus a dog -- and basically fell in love with the island. Very close access to beach and Shoal's Club, walk to the turtle conservancy… our (mostly young) kids enjoyed playing in the driveway and scootered, etc. on the street while not at the beach. Three master BRs gave each family a home base, and kids enjoyed bunk room and screened in porch for play space. The house is right-sized and laid out very nicely - the only thing we might consider for next year is adding a third golf cart for ultimate flexibility for each family. 5K on Wednesday morning was a great experience! (One thing to note is that the bunk room has 4 beds, we thought it was only 2 plus floor space, based on photos -- it's a great room.)

We had a fabulous stay at Rum Runner! If only we could have stayed longer! We were two families, including 5 children between the ages of 2 and 10. The house was modern, wonderfully clean, and comfortable. It didn't feel like a rental house -- more like we were staying with friends. The location was perfect -- close to the beach, Shoals Club, and BHI conservancy, yet felt very private. It's wonderful if you have young kids who like to bike and scooter yet you don't want them to wander too far. Our trip happened to fall on the weekend of the Howl of the Moon party at East Beach. What fun! Next time the kids want to take marshmallows for roasting while we wait for the moon to rise. So much to do; so little time! We will just have to go back!! Thanks for a memorable vacation.

Perfect Week and Perfect House

  • 5 of 5
Our family has been coming to Bald Head Island for years. Since that first summer vacation, our family of five has grown to include a son-in-law, (the wedding was at the Bald Head Island Chapel and reception at the Shoals Club), a fiance for my son, and a boyfriend for our youngest daughter. Even though our son's finance came this year, we still included one of his best friends that has been coming with us for several years. Because of our growing number, we needed a larger house and one that could comfortably accommodate 9 adults. The Rum Runner was perfect!! The three master suites accommodated us so well! The two downstairs are still separated adequately and provide privacy. The upstairs three bedrooms included another master suite which was nice for my daughter's boyfriend to have his own privacy. The two bedrooms that sleep 4 in one and 2 in the other could be for children, but are just as well suited for adults. They had good mattresses and were comfortable.
We all agreed that this has been our favorite house. The things that make it our favorite are:
1.a well stocked kitchen..included very sharp knives (we are all foodies and love to cook), also an extra large frying pan great for frying fish and making pancakes. The only thing you might want to bring for the kitchen is a heavy duty can opener.
2.within walking distance to the Shoal's Club, the beaches, and the Turtle Conservancy.
3.short cart ride to the Market
4.beautifully decorated house with an open floor plan in the living area which was great for cooking and still being part of the fun!
5.exceptionally clean house
6. owners are exceptional to rent from. We had a problem with the air conditioning and it was fixed immediately
7.Fantastic large screened in porch
8.bicycles are in good working order and not rusted like some have been in the past

There is a large selection of books, games, CD's, and DVD's.

While you're on the island, make sure to go to the Turtle Conservancy and watch the video, "Turtle the Incredible Journey." Adults and children alike will find this fascinating.
You will not be disappointed in The Rum Runner or Bald Head Island. Missing it already!

WOW

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here the past week, and our vacation could not have been better. What a GREAT house. This is our 8th time renting on VRBO, and this was without a doubt, the best equipped property. Nothing was left out. The house was spotless on arrival, and the owner was very easy to work with leading up to the trip. Any question we had was promptly answered. This is a dog-friendly rental, but you would never know that. No spots on carpet or furniture, and the house smelled fresh. This was one of the first times we brought our dog on vacation where we didnt feel we were being penalized for bringing her. We very much appreciate the owner's FAIR prices and deposits where pets are concerned.
We were a little nervous when we arrived at the house and saw the construction going on next door. But our fears were quickly put to rest by one of the QUIETEST, and cleanest construction crews Ive ever seen (er...heard?) We never heard them, and they were usually gone by 3:00. (HONESTLY...no problem at all)
The Island is beautiful, and the shop owners, waiters, waitresses, etc. are among the friendliest we've experienced. The ferry crew were extremely professional and helpful getting my slightly handicapped (and very nervous) mother to and from the island.
Do yourself a favor...if youre going to BHI, eliminate all the headache and rent this property. You wont be sorry.

Bald Head Island features many natural environments, including ocean beach, river beach, salt marsh, tidal creek and maritime forest. 14 miles of pristine beaches line the east, west and south facing sides of the island, providing enjoyment regardless of wind direction. The salt marshes and tidal creeks are wonderful places to kayak, canoe and fish, and walking paths abound through the maritime forest. There are no cars on the island, so allow yourself to unwind as you tour this beautiful island by golf cart. You can be as busy as you want to be, with tennis, swimming, hiking, biking, roller-blading, kayaking, turtle-watching, and casual and fine dining, but the best part about Bald Head is doing nothing but relaxing on the beach. Come discover North Carolina's best kept secret!

Other Activities: Observation of loggerhead turtles, crabbing
