Overview

Coastal North Carolina House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 full en-suite bathrooms, sleeps 8

Welcome to 'Mare Tranquillitatis', our Sea of Tranquility. Formerly known as 'Serenity House', the house has been completely refreshed and updated to provide an upscale yet comfortable vacation environment for you and your family. Enjoy serene tranquility and utmost privacy amidst the live oak and palmetto trees in Bald Head's pristine Maritime Forest, but only a short golf cart ride from the deep-water marina, unspoiled beaches, championship golf, gourmet market and all of this cape island's unique amenities. The home's pastel colors, beaded board wainscoting and hardwood floors are reminiscent of classic seaside cottages, but the new chef's kitchen--featuring stainless appliances, quartz counter tops and sea glass tile--speaks to modern convenience. Guests will enjoy membership privileges at The Shoals Club, an outstanding private beach club located at the tip of Cape Fear. Privileges at The Bald Head Island Club are also available for a nominal additional charge. One 4-person cart included.

The Shoals Club: Temporary membership privileges at The Shoals Club are extended to all Mare Tranquillitatis guests and are included in the rental price. The Shoals Club sits at the tip of Cape Fear, where East and South Beaches meet, and affords panoramic ocean views. It features a large main pool, children's pool and a wooden boardwalk over the dunes to the wide beach. Children's activities are often offered around the pool. Towel service is provided at the pool and beach chairs and umbrellas are provided on the beach. The 10,000 sq. ft. clubhouse has a dining room featuring innovative cuisine made from local ingredients, a fitness center, locker rooms and wraparound porches from which you can watch the sun both rise and set over the ocean. In addition, there is a bar and casual restaurant poolside.

The Bald Head Island Club: Temporary membership privileges at The Bald Head Island Club are available for a nominal additional fee. The Bald Head Island Club’s championship 18-hole golf course wraps 6,855 yards (73.8/137) around freshwater lagoons, through a spectacular maritime forest and across dunes overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Other BHI Club amenities include outstanding formal and casual dining, four hard-surface tennis courts located close enough to the ocean to hear the surf, a 25-meter swimming pool positioned just across a lagoon from the Atlantic Ocean with its own bar and casual eatery, and regulation greenswards providing a picture-perfect venue for the genteel sport of croquet. What’s more, the recent addition of a well-equipped fitness center allows you to stick to your exercise regimen in climate-controlled comfort.

Very clean and comfortable. Great location for reaching all destinations quickly. Fabulous time.

  • 5 of 5

THE PROPERTY WAS GORGEOUS AND CLEAN. IT WAS SO COMFORTABLE. I LOVED THE SHADE ON THE PROPERTY. IT WAS A GREAT LOCATION BECAUSE IT WAS CLOSE TO ALL ISLAND DESTINATIONS. THE CART DROVE WELL AND WAS CLEAN. THE DIRECTIONS FOR EXITING THE ISLAND WERE CLEAR. THE OWNER WAS EASY TO CONTACT WHEN NECESSARY. I MUST SAY THAT SINCE IT SLEPT 8, IT WOULD BE SO NICE IF IT HAD A SECOND CART SINCE THEY HOLD 4 PEOPLE EACH. THIS ELIMINATES THE NEED FOR RENTING A SECOND CART.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your complimentary review. We enjoy sharing our beach house with our guests and love to hear positive feedback. We, too, would love to have another golf cart as we are usually visiting the island with more than 4 people. Garage constraints have prevented us from getting either a larger cart or a 2nd cart. We hope that our competitive pricing and other features offset the disappointment of only 1 cart.

A quiet and relaxing home

  • 5 of 5

Our family was very pleased with our accommodations during our long weekend. Everything was very clean. The master bedroom and bathroom were especially spacious and comfortable. We cooked a simple dinner two nights and found everything we needed. We would stay here again in the future.

Paradise in the forest

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home and, Sharon, the owner was a pleasure to work with. Lovely location—very close to the marina and the grocery store and even if in the forest you can still hear the waves crashing on the beach. The house is pristine and all rooms are lovely decorated. I hope to be back soon.

Great house, great value.

  • 5 of 5

Arriving to this beautiful, comfortable home set our family beach vacation off to a great start. We enjoyed being centrally located to the Shoal's Club, the Market, and the Marina. On hot days/nights, it was nice to be located in the cooler forest area of the island and enjoy the screen porch and outdoor grill. The house is well maintained and appointed. Our family of five had plenty of space. The included club membership and plethora of bikes, beach toys, and games added to this house's great value regardless of the weather. Owner was so friendly, easy to work, with and well organized. Wonderful trip (Aug 2014).

Car: not necessary

The southernmost of North Carolina's cape islands, Bald Head Island is located where the Cape Fear River meets the Atlantic Ocean. A pleasant, 20-minute cruise by passenger ferry transports you from the Deep Point Marina in Southport, NC to the harbor village marina at Bald Head Island. A tram service (paid as part of your passage) will then transport you and your luggage to our home. Once on the island, transportation is by electric golf cart, bike or on foot. Children can explore independently without fear of traffic or congestion. South Beach is within easy walking distance, or you may choose to cart or cycle to The Shoals Club for pampering service and a 270 degree ocean view. Life proceeds at a pleasantly unhurried pace on this island of unspoiled nature and unparalleled oceanside beauty.

Other Activities: kayaking, paddle boarding
