LARGE 3BR IN MARITIME FOREST ON 5TH GREEN, 2 KAYAKS & 8 BIKES - AVAIL AUG 17-29

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

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

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.

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.

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!

A TRUE HOME WITH GREAT LOCATION, EXCELLENT EXTRAS LIKE A ROOMY GOLF CART, KAYAKS AND BIKES!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time on Bald Head with our family of 4. We loved this home, its location, near the marina, yet still proximate to golf and beaches and the creek access. There are 2 kayaks included which we enjoyed launching at the creek access. We rode the bikes all over town day after day. They were a huge perk. We were just far enough to get some exercise but close enough for kids to do it without getting exhausted. Stopping for a drink at the Sail Loft was a ritual and exploring some of the other less known Beach Access points in town (you have to look for them) was fun. The home is perfect for two small families or grandparents and 1 family. 4 little kids and 4 adults can easily be accommodated. Home is well appointed. An added bonus is the cool maritime forest setting and the nice screen porch overlooking the green. Highly recommended!

FAMILY FUN

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time staying in the Maritime Forest house. It had all amenities for our family of four. We enjoyed the quiet surroundings, but we also enjoyed the close proxemity to the grocery store, restaurants and beach. We hope to be back next year.
