Bald Head Island House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms,1 half bathroom, sleeps 12

Two Views is a professionally decorated beach front home in Middle Island designed by a noted architect with fabulous views of the marsh and the ocean. The house was totally reconstructed in 2006 when the main living area was relocated to the new second floor to take advantage of the spectacular views. All bedrooms open onto the covered first floor deck which wraps around the entire house and offers great views of the ocean and marsh from its many rocking chairs. They also open to a first floor Great room that has a TV area at one end and a quiet reading area at the other end. The upper front and rear decks offer dramatic ocean and marsh views. It is a one minute walk to the best beach on the island, East Beach. This 3400 square foot retreat is one of the largest homes on Bald Head Island and can

accommodate your every need for a relaxing vacation.

2nd time just as perfect as the 1st!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Two Views for Spring Break about 5 years ago and loved it so much we were concerned it couldn't live up to our expectations when we booked it this year but boy did it! Leslie is so easy to work with. We were late planners this year and she was able to accommodate us with ease. The house is amazing! It's been completely restored and updated in the most beautiful "Coastal Living" style you can imagine. The 3 king bedrooms have super comfortable beds and beautiful views. While the room with 2 full beds worked great for our teen daughter and friend, the bunk room was a big hit for our teen son and his friends. The kitchen has everything you need plus super nice entertaining pieces. The kitchen table is huge! The house was so comfortable for us with 9 of us with lots of room to spare. We've rented some beautiful multi-million dollar houses but this one remains one of our most favorite houses because of how Leslie (interior decorator) has made it so comfortable and ... the views! The location is so special for enjoying the island's East beach and the marsh. My husband brought his SUP and loved being able to put in at the community dock. The golf carts were a little sluggish since we were the first renters of 2016 but one text to Leslie and they were fixed ASAP! We've rented over 15 houses on BHI and can't recommend Two Views enough! Thank you, Leslie!

Owner's Response: Thank you soon much for the fabulous review, we never get tired of hearing from our happy renters. Families like yours make it easy to turn over the house. Two Views is a special place to create lasting beach memories, I hope you have many. Leslie and Tom

Love this vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent another great week at Two Views! It is an awesome property, well equipped and managed. We needed help with a couple of things while there, and they were taken care of promptly. The main living space is upstairs with decks on each side for taking in the views. My favorite thing is the large dining table, big enough for all of us to eat together! We look forward to being back next year!

Fabulous house!

  • 5 of 5

For some reason, it seems like the many, many glowing reviews I read online before we rented this house aren't appearing on this web site. But after reading all of them, we felt very comfortable renting this house - lots of people were return guests from year to year. And, as many of the reviews noted, Lesley is very responsive to questions and problems (one of the golf carts needed repairing while we were there, and both Lesley and the repair service took care of it faster than we thought possible).

The house is fabulous - the view over the marsh (especially during a thunderstorm!) is incredible. There is a beach entrance to East Beach almost across the street, with a surfing lesson tent right there. The house is nicely kept, and the rooms (3 kings, one with two doubles, one with two sets of bunk beds) fit our party of 11 just right. I highly recommend Two Views, and hope we can get back there again soon! Thanks, Lesley!

Beautiful weekend escape- even in winter

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much to the owners of this beautiful home. We rented for long weekend with several couples to escape the drudgery of this unseasonable winter. Taking the boat over to the island was the begining of this wonderful weekend. The ferry attendants make the trip so easy. The tram was waiting for us and got us to this rental the minute we got off the ferry. This home is gorgeous and in impeccable shape. Trying to decide which beautiful bedroom to take, wow, each one is deliciously decorated. In addition to large bedrooms, there are so many places to escape to, three living room areas and huge decks on two levels, facing both the ocean and marsh/lighthouse. We will be back with our families! Even though we had some unusually chilly weather, the top deck facing the ocean was beautiful and sunny. There is really comfortable furniture on both decks, making a great place for an outdoor nap. We walked for miles on the beach and had several dolphin sightings. We loved the little grocery store and cafe for breakfast. The little shops were great and the sightseeing and history of the island were really interesting. I wish I could get remarried in that pretty little church.

The house was so beautiful we didn't want to go out for dinner- cocktails on either deck watching the sunsets- AMAZING! The owners have really included everything you would want or need in this upscale house. We have stayed in beautiful rentals before, but nothing as nice as this. It is worth every penny and we look forward to returing to this house again- for sure.

Great family vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We spent two terrific weeks at "Two Views" in June (we have rented several different houses at Bald Head in the past 4 years. This was our best). The name of the house says it all. Our "backyard" as our kids called it, was an uninterrupted view of the marsh all the way from the back deck on East Beach Rd to Old Baldy lighthouse at the other end of the island - in the morning, the upper deck in back was shaded and cool, and a fabulous place to watch the wildlife, or just read and sip coffee. This, while the deck at the other end was greeting the sun in the AM, over the ocean which is just across the street. Both front and back views are better any we know of and we couldn't get over how comfortable, and breezy both upstairs decks were - your pick, sun or shade.

The upstairs living/dining/kitchen is fabulous, and equipped with everything anyone would need, and the views out the picture windows at each end are as advertised!

The 5 bedrooms, all on the first floor, were spacious, very private, and each had their own bathroom. My wife and I were amazed that we never heard noise from the other rooms at night or morning - not from our grandchildren, 6 year old twins or their 10 month old cousin - nor from their parents for that matter.

We had a large extended family gathering, with others renting different houses, but Two Views was easily everyone's favorite gathering spot.

Well done Leslie and Tom

Wow...Wow...Wow

  • 5 of 5

Owners = fantastic, considerate, talented. Two Views: wonderful. comfortable. comforting. well designed. fun. clean. cared for. and most of all, more than worth it. We found from the beginning the owners were terrific and have created a lovely vacation spot. Two views is just that - two incredible morning and evening views of the ocean, or at dusk a picturesque sunset. Easy access to beach. The club at the beach (BHI i think...) was awesome. What can we say - we fell in love with the Island and we'll be back. A lot of credit to the owners and their fantastic place. Can't say enough!
