WE'LL PROVIDE ALL THE TOYS: Two PADDLE BOARDS, two KAYAKS for the march. Four bicycles for exploring the island; beach chairs for watching the ocean; two 4-person golf carts for getting around the island.
SHOALS CLUB MEMBERSHIP IS INCLUDED! The club has two additional dining venues, swimming pools, beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas for use at The Point; showers and locker rooms, PLUS a conditioned work-out area.
THE LOCATION ON THE ISLAND IS IDEAL. It is secluded in the semi-tropical maritime forest, minutes from the beach, sound, marsh, and the island's stores.
THERE'S NEVER A BAD-BEACH DAY AT BHI. The island is uniquely located on the eastern seaboard where the coast line transitions from north/south to east/west.
You will never have a bad beach day due to wind or waves. At the 'Point,' there is a 270% panoramic view of the ocean.
OUR HOME IS GREAT FOR LARGE FAMILIES, TWO FAMILIES or COUPLES. We have TWO master bedrooms, TWO sitting/TV areas in an open floor plan. Our wrap-around SCREEN porch is designed for dining, meditation, and enjoying the outdoors in a protected environment.

The Point at the new moon is the BEST place for star gazing.
Also, there are many experienced fishing guides available to fish the marsh for red drum, flounder, and speckled trout; and off-shore fishing for spanish mackeral and king mackeral.

Our family chose to build our vacation home on Bald Head Island because of its separation from the main land and it's non-commercial, environmentally sensitive design. The 25 minute ferry ride provides the necessary threshold to de-compress from accumulated stresses of daily life. The island has four unique environments; the beach, dune, semi-tropical forest, and marsh. We have found that the variety of nature revitalizes our family with each and every visit.
I love to walk on the beach in the moon light ,it's so bright sometimes that it's like walking in sun light . Or sitting with our childern trying to spot a falling star.Maybe being lucky enought to see a sea turtle.These are the things that memories are made of .
We've had the good fortune to enjoy this lovely home many times during the past 5 years...from family vacations to girls' getaways. Every time we visit, the owners have added something new to make things even more enjoyable...new beach chairs, kayaks, paddle boards and bikes, to name a few. The quiet location is so peaceful, yet it's centrally located so trips to any of the beaches are just a short golf cart ride away. The house is very close to the Maritime Market and terrific shops. We especially enjoy the well-equipped kitchen and dining areas and the grill. The screened porch is the perfect place to relax with a drink or while eating a meal...a nice big dining table, as well as plenty of rockers and other seating to enjoy being in the secluded maritime forest.
We have been coming to BHI since 1987 and have rented in just about every environment on the island, except the marina... But since this house was built, it's the only place we rent. Comfy beds and furniture, places to be by yourself or with a group, plenty of nice extra touches by the owners...a place we'd love to call our own!
Have loved this house for years. Impeccable condition; secluded location. Hugged by a giant live oak, the cottage offers quiet peace regardless of season. Wonderful place for family or friends, the design offers a perfect layout for convivial interaction while also providing separate space. Party on the porch, relax in the "flip flop room," hike in the woods, kayak in the marsh, bake on the beach - this is your best choice for BHI!
I have rented this house several times and I´m always impressed with the cleanliness of the house and the beautiful wood floors. My most memorable experience was having the opportunity to watch the Baby turtles boiling up out of the sand and heading to the water. It was a miracle to see them fighting so hard to make it to the top and finally reaching the water. Everyone cheers. I love kayaking in the marsh and watching the hawks and baldhead eagles fly over you. This house has everything you need to enjoy all that is available on the island, including two golf carts, beach umbrellas, bikes and kayaks. I wouldn't think of renting from any one else on the island. The family is very easy to deal with. Enjoy!
We have stayed at this home several times. We keep coming back because it is very comfortable, well maintained, and has all the amenities we want. The bedrooms and living areas are very spacious and in good condition, and includes multiple TVs and a spacious screened porch. Amenities include bikes, kayaks, 2 golf carts, and a gas grill. The home's location is very nice, convenient to the beach, market, and club. This is a very nice home for a family vacation.
We stayed here with another family this summer and loved the house. It was a great location on the island, very close to the grocery store and about midway between the harbor area and the beach. It is on a nicely shaded cul-de-sac which is a nice respite after a hot day in the sun. We liked that it came with 2 golf carts and 4 bikes, as well as two kayaks! The membership to the Shoals Club was a huge plus. Our older teenagers/young adults liked being able to enjoy the ammenities at the club. The club offers the use of chairs, umbrellas and towels free of charge. Not having to lug all of those things makes packing up for the beach so much easier, especially for a group. The house was decorated nicely and well maintained with beautiful hardwood/ceramic tile throughout. One of the bedrooms upstairs worked great for sleeping several kids (one Queen and 2 twins) but this house would also work for 4 couples . The house has a lovely porch which is great for enjoying coffee and breakfast in the morning and also for enjoying the evenings bug-free! The owner was a delight to work with. He was very professional and provided all the information we needed to make this a really fun vacation week. I would definitely recommend this house.
We enjoyed everything about the house. The availability of the kayaks, bicycles and Shoals Club membership were important to us. The location could not have been better. Access to the market was quick, and we had a short ride to any beach. The house itself offered plenty of room. Communications with the owner were great.
