ONLY 1 SUMMER WEEK LEFT! MAKE IT YOURS!!

Bald Head Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 Max.)

We're the proud owners of Mears Merritime and are pleased to say we've been helping families make BHI vacation memories since 2005. We have only 1 summer week remaining - the first full week in June - a perfect way to start your summer. Our vacation rental philosophy is quite simple really -- we think you should spend your money enjoying everything that Bald Head Island has to offer -- not paying for your vacation rental! This is why we are so committed to providing as relaxing accommodations as possible while at the same time keeping our rental fees as reasonable as possible. That means you enjoy the amenities you've come to expect...but at a price that will pleasantly surprise you! And as has been our Mears Merritime custom over the last 10 years, rental contracts entered prior to April 1st each year receive a 10% discount from the advertised weekly rental rate! Please contact us for more information on your discount!

We simply don't believe there is a better value on the island, and we are absolutely committed to doing all we can to help you plan and enjoy your BHI experience! That means personal attention to you and all the details! You're dealing with owners who want you to enjoy their home as much as they do - no agencies, property managers... or additional hidden fees!

Your ultimate vacation begins as soon as you board the ferry for Bald Head Island at Southport's ferry facilities. Now it's time to kick back and relax! The 20-minute ferry ride to the island fills you with the anticipation of knowing that for the next week or so, you're on 'Turtle Time'! For those of you who've been there - you know what we're talking about. For you first-timers, it's nothing like you've experienced before!

Nature abounds around our comfortable, fully-furnished, 3-bedroom, 2-bath enchanted cottage home. Nestled in the sub-tropical maritime forest, amid the ancient live oaks and sabal palm trees, this charming family home is surrounded by a deck, with a screened-in crofter/gazebo attached. Our delightful cottage also features a garage, with a newer (6) six-person golf cart provided. Tooling around on the island in the cart (remember - the speed limit is 18 mph!) is half the fun of getting to your island destination! The decor and numerous amenities add to its charm, comfort, and ambiance. We've tried to think of every detail, from the numerous games and DVD/VCR movies on site to the wireless internet; from the Egyptian cotton sheets to the featherbed toppers in every room. The kitchen has been completely updated and provides the equipment that makes meal preparation a pleasure. Two newly remodeled bathrooms are equipped with features you'll love. It's the perfect setting for your family vacation - including your well-behaved dog! Enjoy the hustle and bustle of all the island has to offer during the day -- swimming, golf, tennis, kayaking, biking and hiking -- it's always nicer to return to your home in the quiet, secluded forest for a relaxing evening.

Centrally located on Edward Teach Wynd, our home is just minutes away from the harbor area, 'Old Baldy', the chapel, creek access, golf course, both clubs and conveniently located near the Maritime Market, hardware store, recently opened spa and gift shops. It's less than a 3-minute golf cart ride to the beach! If you're into golf, tennis, or croquet, or just prefer lounging by the pool with a good book, temporary memberships at both the Bald Head Island Club and the Shoals Club are available to purchase for your use and enjoyment. You decide where you want to go, when you want to go and for how long. Our memberships at both clubs provide you with the flexibility your family seeks in planning your ultimate vacation. Links to review each club are provided below!

Your hosts, Scott and Mary Mears, enjoying dinner at the Bald Head Island Club! Join us, won't you?

Mary Mears purchased this cottage in 2005

We immediately fell in love with Bald Head Island when we started vacationing there in 1999. Although we enjoy the beach, we were particularly taken with the maritime forest environment. The stars aligned in 2005 when we were able to purchase our BHI home. Since then, it's been a 'labor of love', and we're always making improvements and adding amenities to our little cottage in the forest for all to enjoy. 2014 is the year we've been waiting for - when we'll be able to enjoy Bald Head on a more permanent basis. However, our summer weeks are still available for you to make YOUR memories.

We enjoy all the activities the island has to offer during the day, but we particularly appreciate being able to return to our home in the quiet, secluded forest for the evening. Our cottage really is the perfect size for a family vacation. It's so comfortable that most of our guests relate they immediately had that 'at home' feeling right after they arrived. When we're joined by family and friends, it truly is 'Mears Merritime'!
