Overview

Bald Head Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

During your stay at Island Palms Cottage, you can make the most of your BHI vacation by exploring the inland waters and ocean on kayak and by biking the island roads draped in spanish moss or the beach at low tide. Island Palms is a light and airy home with a perfect location in the maritime forest on a large corner lot overlooking the 5th green of the golf course. We love spending time on BHI and enjoy sharing our home with others. Read the reviews to see what previous guests have to say about their experiences.

Island Palms Cottage is just a 5-minute ride in our 6-seat golf cart or by bike to the beach, the harbor, the Maritime Market and Shops at Maritime Way, and the Nature Trail and 2 minutes to the Creek Access, Old Baldy Lighthouse, and the Wildlife Overlook.

Our tastefully-decorated 1,700+ sq ft home boasts a bright and airy open floor plan and ALL hardwood floors, plus plenty of outdoor living space. After a day at the beach, kayaking in the marsh, or biking the island trails, you can relax on the 300 sq ft screened porch, taking in the tranquility of the maritime forest of sable palms and majestic live oaks draped in Spanish moss.

This beautiful home sleeps 8, comfortably accommodating one large family or two smaller families. The large master has a king bed, a balcony overlooking the golf course, a 32” TV/DVD, and bath with tub/shower.

The spacious “bunkroom” is an ideal retreat for kids of all ages with two full-over-full bunks (sleeping 4-6), a love seat, and a 32” iPod-compatible flat screen TV/DVD/VCR. The 3rd bedroom has a queen bed, TV/VCR, and shares a hall bath (tub and shower) with the bunkroom. A port-a-crib and high chair are provided.

The large family room has two overstuffed sofas that offer golf course and forest views and a 32” flatscreen TV/DVD. The dining room table seats eight, and the fully-equipped kitchen, ½ bath, washer/dryer, and wrap-around screened porch complete the first floor plan. The cart garage includes an outdoor shower, plus plenty of storage space for beach gear.

Amenities include cable, WiFi, iPod-compatible sound system, DVDs, games, and book swap. Sheets/bedding, bath and beach towels, beach chairs/toys, charcoal grill, and starter paper products/toiletries are provided so you can pack lightly!

Our home rents Sunday to Sunday during the summer, and we can be more flexible in the off season. Check-in time is 3 pm, and check-out is 10 am.

Temporary Membership for the Shoals Club is available as an option. The Temporary Club Membership includes access to the pool, complimentary towels, a small fitness center, and Club and Grill dining. There is along beach access at the Shoals Club, with chairs and beach umbrellas available with membership.

If you are looking for a beautiful home in a convenient location with eight bikes and two kayaks INCLUDED in your rental, then Island Palms Cottage is the place for you! The kayaks are a two-seater and a single and can be used to explore the marsh or the ocean (if calm). We have a few life jackets or you can bring your own. Kayaks can be transported either on top of our 6-person golf cart or using a pull-behind bike cart. Our beach bikes are mostly adult size, but we do have one small bike. Bikes at the beach are easily affected by the salt air, so they aren't fancy -- just functional.

A $300 deposit reserves your week with final payment due 45 days before check-in. If you cancel more than 45 days out, your deposit is fully refundable. The cleaning fee is included in rate. We require that the primary renter who signs the rental agreement be at least 25 years of age and that golf cart drivers be 18 years of age.

Keywords: Two-story 3BR home on large corner lot, great location, all hardwood floors, large screened porch, master w/ balcony, two full-size bunk-beds, 8 bikes, 2 kayaks, WiFi, 6-person golf cart, beach chairs, tastefully decorated

About The Owner

We first visited Bald Head Island in 1994 and have been coming back every year because we enjoy spending our vacation outdoors and not in a car. We look forward to the relaxed atmosphere of BHI and all of the outdoor activities. In addition to the beach, we enjoy biking, running, kayaking, fishing, and stand up paddleboarding in the creeks. Our kids love surfing on East Beach. Here is our son paddleboarding in the marsh over New Years.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Bald Head Island

We purchased our vacation home in October 2009 and are thrilled that it has given us so many more opportunities to expolore this beautiful island. We found that we were coming back so regularly and that we always hated to leave the island. The ferry is such a short drive from the Triangle and, once we step aboard, we immediately relax and go into vacation mode -- whether we are going for a week or a weekend.

What makes this house unique

We love being outdoors at BHI and find that, whether we are traveling the island by golf cart, bike, foot, or kayak, it is much more fun than being in a car for a beach vacation. Having access to bikes and kayaks is also very important to us, and we want ourequests to know that they are available for their use at no extra charge. The bikes aren't fancy but, having them including in the rental, will save you a bundle on your vacation. It is also important to us to be able to arrive early and stay late in the day and, when available, we offer this to you as well.

The Perfect BHI Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We just enjoyed a mini-vacation on BHI at the Island Palms Cottage! The cottage was perfect! The kids LOVED the bunk room! AND all of the TOYS are a GREAT Bonus! Our stay was short but we played with all the toys... bike rides, kayaking, beach trips, and lots of exploring by golf cart!
Kelly was wonderful to work with and gave us great instructions for all the details of the house and our journey to BHI.
Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. We are already trying to figure out a time to return!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect for 4 adults and 3 kids. Just the right size, hardwood flooring made this house very easy to keep clean throughout the week. My sons loved the numerous bikes and the bunk room. The adults enjoyed the roomy screened in back porch. This was our 1st trip to BHI and it's definitely a favorite. The owners were wonderful, answered all my questions and left lots of contact info if needed. The property manager/house keeper was wonder too.
We only joined Shoals Club for 2 days and I probably wouldn't join again, only because the beach is more important to us vs a pool. Definitely recommend this house

A very nice home base for a visit to BHI!

  • 5 of 5
The home was accurately described, very clean, very comfortable, and a nice size for our group of 8. The large screened in porch, with several OH fans, was our favorite part and probably saw the most use. The 6 passenger golf cart saw constant use (we rented a 2nd cart as well) as did the bikes and the 2 person kayak. We'd recommend getting the temporary membership at the Shoals Club which was very nice and a great way to access the beach and have a nice pool. Used it every day. We've rented many, many times from VRBO and were pleased that this property met our expectations.

Family Christmas

  • 5 of 5
We came with our family for a Christmas reunion on the Island. The house is beautiful and big. The house fit my husband and me and my 5 young adult children and one teenage boy.
Kellie and Todd were very accessible by cell phone when we had any questions.
The island is beautiful! We loved biking around on the many bikes they had available at their house.
I recommend renting their house and we will definitely do that when we come back!!

Good Place

  • 5 of 5
Excellent forest location. The owners are very nice and helpful. I would recommend this property to anyone trying to get away and have a relaxing time enjoying the beach and slowing down for a few days; transportation is your golf cart that comes with the house. You go to BHI for the beach, lighthouse, nature, peace, slowing down, enjoying time talking to your family, kayaking, biking, cooking and eating in your beautiful rental property.

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5
My family and I recently enjoyed a long weekend on the island. The house was great. It is close to the beach and island shopping. The bikes, beach chairs, and beach toys at the house made it easy for us to enjoy our time, without having to pack so much. This is our second time in this home and will be returning next year!
