We are the Strickland's. High school sweathearts 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 purchased this house in 2010

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.

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.

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.

GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
Loved this gorgeous house, very conveniently located, has all the things you're looking for to have a great summer vacation (bikes, toys for kids, beach chairs etc). Very clean and spacious. Nicely decorated. Airco worked perfectly. I especially appreciated that the kitchen has great quality ustensils, pots and pans- which made cooking very pleasant. The owners were very kind and a pleasure to deal with.

BEAUTIFUL, WELL-EQUIPPED VACATION HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Our family has been vacationing on BHI for years, and Turtle Tree House met every expectation that we had and beyond. It was immaculate, organized, comfortable and well-equipped. The owners made every effort to insure that our vacation was worry free and fun, to the extent that they even let us know about upcoming events and tips on Island living. I would highly recommend a stay!

RELAXING FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
"The Turtle House" as my boys called it was a wonderful home away from home to spend the week with my husband and our 3 boys ages 16, 12, & 8. The house was just as described and pictured on VRBO. It was very clean and well maintained, and the kitchen came well stocked with everything we needed to prepared and serve meals. The gas grill w/grilling utensils was used almost every night. All of the bedrooms were large and each had its own bathroom. My 16 year old loved having his own domain in the crofter above the garage. If it would have had a refrigerator and microwave up there, we may have never seen him. Having a washer and dryer available meant that we went home with clean clothes! The garage was equipped with two golf carts, 5 bikes (although no small ones--we brought one for our 8 year old), 2 scooters, beach chairs, beach toys, and a beach umbrella. Although not on the beach, the house is literally a minute to the beach by golf cart..a few minutes by bike. The locations was great and the house seems very secluded even though their are houses all around. Having never visited BHI before, we were extremely pleased! The owner was extremely helpful and very easy to work with. She was only a phone call away if we had any questions. We would definietly choose this house again for our next BHI vacation. Although there are opportunities to rent kayaks, fishing charters, etc. on BHI we did not include those options in our vacation, choosing instead to spend our time on the beach and fishing/crabbing on our own. We did visit Old Baldy and the Turtle Conservatory. Mike's Bites next to the Turtle Conservatory was a daily stop for their Italian Ice! The Turtle Conservatory store was also my 8 year old's favorite store on the Island. We only ate out once for lunch and once for dinner, both times at MoJo's on the harbor. Service was extremely slow and although lunch was good, dinner was not! We preferred buying fresh meat/seafood at the Market and grilling it ourselves. A friend had recommended bringing plastic tubs with food for breakfast, lunch, snacks, etc. and that saved us quite a bit. The ferry system was extremely efficient and the staff very friendly, although the cost of the ferry tickets was a bit high. We also did not opt for the optional Shoal's club membership. The pool there looks very nice, but we preferred the beach! Being on the point of the island we were amazed to see how the beach changed each day and it was never crowded.

Owner's Response: Shelia,
I'm so glad you and your family enjoyed your first vacation to BHI. It was our pleasure sharing our home with your family.
My 16 year old is the same way and that is why we didn't put a fridge and microwave out in the crofter, we would never see him either.
I hope you will come back to BHI to relax and make more memories. It truly is an escape like no other. Enjoy the rest of your summer.


Sincerely,

M
