Sabal Palm Cottages House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This newly renovated cottage is centrally located in the forest of Bald Head Island overlooking a lagoon and close to everything. The peaceful screened-in-porch allows you to sip wine and watch the wild life go by. New hardwood flooring and granite counter tops, along with a beachy decor provide a peaceful interior with all the comforts of home after a fun day at the beach.

A private community gazebo, along with its own wildlife overlook, provide a perfect spot for evening grilling. This unit comes with two four seater golf carts for travel. Bikes, boogie boards, skim boards, and beach chairs will complete any stay at the beach. The two upstairs master suites have full private baths, one with a king bed and the other with 2 twin/full bunk beds. The family room and every bedroom has its own TV for your entertainment.

The third downstairs bedroom has an unattached full bath with a queen bed. Kitchen table seats 6, along with seating for 6 around the granite breakfast bar. Queen pullout in family room.

Getting to Bald Head Island is half the fun. A relaxing 20 minute passenger ferry ride transports you from the ferry terminal at Indigo Plantation to the harbour at Bald Head Island. You are greeted by the tram to be escorted to your home at 12 Sabal Palm cottage where two golf carts await for you to go exploring the harbour and 14 miles of West, South and East beaches, along with the beautiful marshlands.

Historic Old Baldy waits for you to climb and explore. Visit the beautiful Chapel. Investigate the great Conservancy programs, including turtle walks on the beaches, Kayak the marshes, crab and fish the creeks and oceans. Dine at the exquisite Shoals Club or BHI Club, watching the sun set as a perfect ending to your day.

Great set up for families--

  • 5 of 5

Perfect set up for two families- could easily sleep 8 children in the bunk room! Every room has a bathroom! Great big laundry room perfect for a zillion beach towels. Layout was perfect and comfortable, location was convenient and the kitchen had everything you could need. We had a great weekend and spent part of every day talking about how perfect the set up of the house was.

Great set up for a family!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 wonderful weeks at this house and felt right at home! The house is set up perfectly for us, grandparents in the first floor bedroom, my husband and I in the master and our 2 boys in the kids room. We loved that everyone had their own bathroom and really enjoyed the screened porch in the mornings. Starting my day with a cup of coffee and enjoying the wildlife of the lagoon behind the house was perfect! This house is an ideal location just a few minutes from Maritime Market, the restaurants and stores by the marina and an easy ride to the beach. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful with the only real noise we heard was the occasional bird out back. Definitely a great place to say when visiting BHI!

Such a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great visit to this adorable cottage! Very relaxing and even though it rained most of the time - we enjoyed every bit! The home had everything we needed and was very clean, which made for a very stress free stay. Having two golf carts was a plus - and the proximity to the marina was easy. Loved the screened porch. Brandy was such a pleasure to work with - she was quick to respond to my emails and made sure our needs were met with ease! We drove our own boat to BHI so she had the golf cart waiting for us as soon as we got there, very convenient! Too bad this Cottage is already booked for Labor Day, or else we would have snatched it up! Highly recommended stay!

Girls Get Away Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at this lagoon cottage for a girls golfing get away weekend. Having two golf carts was great ESPECIALLY the one with curtains as we encountered a rainy evening on our way to dinner one evening. House was clean and ready for us upon arrival. We plan on booking this cottage again next year for another girls weekend.

Great stay in cottage on the lagoon!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this peaceful lagoon cottage! My husband, our newborn baby, and another couple stayed here for a weekend to attend a friend's wedding, and had a wonderful experience. The house was beautiful and had everything we needed-we especially appreciated the beach towels. The living space was clean and cozy, and we appreciated that there was some separation between the two larger bedrooms--as I'm sure did our friends without the newborn! The area around the house is very peaceful and serene, and we enjoyed turtle-watching from the porch. We even saw an alligator in the lagoon! This property would be great for families, or for getaways with friends. Brandy was wonderful to work with. Highly recommended!

Great location on the island

  • 4 of 5

Great house on the lagoon. Very good central location on the island. Close to the market, beach, and the ferry. Memberships are possible if you'd like to add. BHI club was nice for us. Nice open floor plan with new hardwood floors. Brandy is great to work with. Definitely consider staying at this home again.
