Just bring your cooler and beach towels, chairs and umbrella. There are some chairs and toys in the garage that you are free to use. I cannot guarantee the status of these items week to week. So you may want to pack your own. The sea and weather seems to destroy these items quickly.

Use at your own risk, owner cannot guarantee the working status from week to week. You may bring your own bike over on the ferry. They charge about $25 for transporting it as large cargo. You will have to drive back up to the ferry and pick up your bike. Shuttle does not handle large cargo.

Plenty of family fun with board games, books, DVDs and a nature walk in your backyard and the park around the corner.

About Mary Strickland, Owner

We are the Strickland's. High school sweethearts that grew up in Raleigh. After graduating from NCSU we both left the state and have always wanted a little slice of paradise.

Mary Strickland, Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why Mary Strickland, Owner chose Bald Head Island

BHI is a true escape like no other. The decompression starts with the ferry ride. There are few places to really get away. We love the calmness the island. The golf carts and bikes are an easy way to get around the island. Lack of traffic is just what makes the BHI so dynamic.

What makes this house unique

Our goal is to make this vacation place our home away from home. We look forward to sharing it with all of our vacationers and providing a place for you to make memories. We added an extrta golf cart so everyone can go where they want when they want.

Turtle House was excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for a long weekend getaway. We had plenty of room between the 6 of us that stayed here. We loved that there was a bathroom for each couple. We only used the kitchen for breakfast and used the fridge for lunch/snack items, but it was useful to have a full kitchen. If we were to stay longer, we would definitely taken more advantage of making our own meals at the cottage. We loved that this cottage was on the opposite end of the island from all the ferry business. It was very quiet and the East beach was in walking distance and extremely beautiful. The owner, Mary, was awesome to work with. We are from Kansas City, MO and no clue as to how the island worked as far as transportation to the island, and then transportation around the island. She was willing to help me with every question I had, and I really appreciated that. Her instructions for the property were very specific and really helped. My husband and I stayed in the crofter and it did get a little humid, but this time of year (mid-April) was not bad. This is definitely a 5 star place!!

Great little cottage close to East Beach. Nicely decorated, clean and modern. Loved the bottles of hand soap provided in each sink. Mary was great to work with and very accommodating. We love BHI.

Could not have asked for more!

Everything in the property descsription and photos were spot on. There was nothing lacking in this clean, modern and welcoming property. The bed was so comfortable! The golfcarts were full charged and ready to go. Mary provided valuable brochures on the what and where of the island. The ktichen is well equipped and a very nice grill outside. I would highly recommend this property. PS - the wifi was great

Perfect location on the island-adorable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We are a local Wilmington family and were looking to explore Bald Head for a quick weekend getaway. We contacted the owner Mary at the last minute and she was very helpful is booking on short notice. we booked for 2 nights but were having such a great time that we emailed her and asked to stay an extra night. She was very accommodating in coordinating with her cleaners so we could stay on. Her house was very well equipped with 2 golf carts that came in handy. Just a short drive to the markets and we felt it was the best location on the island as it was just 2 minutes from the Shoals club which we were able to access. We loved this part. A great upscale pool, bar, beach club ad restaurants. Even a nice gym. They would set up chairs and umbrellas on the beach and it was very nice. Marys house is immaculate and very charming. We did not use the extra room over the garage but it was nice to have the 2 bedrooms in the main house each with a private bath. I would highly recommend this to either a family of 4-6 or 2 couples.

Repeat Visit

  • 5 of 5

We have been to BHI twice and have stayed at the Turtle Tree House both times. My wife and I, our 3 girls and my parents go. With the crofter it works out well as my parents stay in there and we stay in the house. The location of the house is perfect. A short cart ride to the market and an even shorter ride to the beach. You can even walk to the beach in just a few minutes. We got the membership to shoals club both times. You can park there going to the beach and they have chair and umbrellas that you can check out for the beach. They also have a pool and the girls went down for movie night. There are also other activities at the club that you can attend. We did the turtle walk last summer but missed the hatch by one night. Last year we went down during pirate weekend. They have a pirate parade, music, and other activities during the weekend. Most of the time was spent on the beach sunning, swimming, and looking for shells. There are very few people on the beach so you can pretty much setup where ever you want. The house was fantastic. It is just as advertised and very comfortable. Mary was very helpful with hints about everything from catching the ferry to buying groceries to what to bring and what to get on the island. We had a great time here both visits and if we go back to BHI we will certainly try to stay in the Turtle Tree House again.

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to BHI exceeded all our expectations. This wonderful home is immaculately clean and very we'll stocked. The bed was extremely comfortable and the en suite bath was clean and bright. We enjoyed touring the island by day, including the fabulous, wide, calm beach minutes away; and relaxed evenings grilling dinner and enjoying the beautiful forest. The Maritime Market was a great resource and allowed us to feel right at home.

The owner was dedicated to making this a wonderful vacation. She returned calls promptly and gave us the inside info on things to do.

I would absolutely return here and recommend this property to friends and family.
