We offer 1 king, 2 doubles and 2 twins. Found in the center of the island, at the end of Sabal Palm Trail, the cottage is minutes away from the beach, as well as the harbor and restaurants, 'Old Baldy', both clubs, the creek access and Maritime market.

For an additional charge, our guests may select temporary membership at either Shoals or Bald Head Island clubs which we are happy to coordinate for you. Shoals club is located at East beach in a superb ocean side setting. It offers both a main pool and smaller child's pool with beautiful ocean views. Informal pool side and restaurant dinning are available as is a small gym. For those wanting to play golf or tennis, Bald Head Island club offers both, as well as a gym and pool. Pool side dinning is available as is more formal dinning within the stylish club house.

Our rates include the use of two 4 seater golf carts, 3 bikes and beach chairs. The rates listed include NC taxes and cleaning so you won't be hit with charges you weren't expecting.

Fishing, sailing, kayaking, golfing ,biking, beach combing, nature trails, exploring the island after dark or turtle watching with the interns. What ever your chosen past time, our house offers a lovely relaxing atmosphere to return to. Relax on the screened porch with a view of the lagoon and enjoy a drink.

About Carrie Jose

We first visited Bald Head Island in Spring 1998 with our children and were immediately taken in by all the island had to offer. Whether taking it easy on the beaches or being more active in the conservation area around us, we have never been short of things to do. As the years went on, we found ourselves returning again and again to Bald Head for our vacations, and in 2004 when we left the United States to live overseas we felt there was no better place to have a vacation home. Our house on Bald Head is our home and one we look forward to returning to when ever we can - it's a place we can truly relax and enjoy each others company. If you have teenagers, a rare treat, I think you'll agree!

Carrie Jose purchased this house in 2005

Why Carrie Jose chose Coastal North Carolina

We originally chose Bald Head, not just because we loved being there, but also because it's just 3 hours from Raleigh. Once in Southport, it's a short 20 minute ferry ride to the island. We chose our house in Sabal Palms because of it's central location. It's just as easy to get to the beach as it is to get to the harbor or market and with our children often using their bikes to get around, that makes it easy for us all. Sabal Palms enjoys a quiet location in the center of the island within a small community. We have a community barbeque located on the gazebo overlooking our lagoon. A perfect place for spotting an alligator whilst waiting for the burgers to cook!

What makes this house unique

Bald Head island is unique in that no cars are allowed. Getting around in either by golf cart, on foot or by bike which makes for a relaxed, unhurried atmosphere. Our house is less than a five minute golf cart ride to the nearest beach or the market. Bald Head is also a breeding ground for the Loggerhead Turtle and guided by the interns during the nesting season, it's possible to see this wonderful creature up close. The conservancy offers a number of different programs from short information sessions to day camps for children during the summer months.

Wonderful wildlife viewing, beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Everything the reviewers say is true - the home is clean, bright, remodeled, bigger than it looks in the pictures, well decorated, and a kitchen ready for any kind of cooking. Carrie is very easy to work with, responsive, and helpful. Added to all of this is the wonderful environment around the house. This is our fourth trip to BHI and this location has the best wildlife viewing! We saw alligators and turtles every day, many times. Each evening, white egrets settled into the trees for the night, and then the bats and toads came out. The home has a nice wrap around porch where we could view everything. We enjoyed sitting on the porch just listening to the frogs and bird calls, watching for the next visitors, coffee, wine, or lemonade in hand. The kids named each animal they saw and then tried to remember the markings so they could call them by name. If you come to BHI to relax and reconnect with nature, this is a great place to do it!

Owner's Response: One of the things we love about our home is its location on the island and the wildlife we get to see, and hear, at all times of the day and night. Nestled away on the edge of the lagoon, we thoroughly enjoy lagoon life after a day on the beach. We too have spent many an evening enjoying the drink of choice, whilst rocking on the deck, listening to the Island sounds.

Owner's Response: Our family room furniture was new in July 2015. With our growing family, we needed more seating so replaced the sofa and chair with a great new sectional. We've updated other pieces of furniture too to add to our light and airy feel. We have our golf carts maintained every month during the summer and every other month through the rest of the year to help them look good and run well. The on island golf cart company respond well to call outs at any time.

Excellent Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this home. This was our second trip to Bald Head Island and this home worked perfectly for our family. The rooms were very spacious and the layout was great. The home was very clean and the kitchen had all the pots /pans we needed to make meals easily. We enjoyed the screened porch and rocking chairs and having access to 2 golf carts was a plus since one of our children still takes afternoon naps (we could meet up later). We highly recommend this rental.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful vacation. We having been coming to BHI for years and I can truly say this was one of the best stays. The cottage is very clean, the beds and furniture are very comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked and the golf carts/ bikes are in great condition. Loved the location on a nice quiet cul de sac and my children loved looking for the alligators. We will definitely return to Sabal Palm.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at sabal palm. We loved the location in the shade of the maritime forest. It felt like a retreat as the sun, heat and overall exposure can be intense during NC summers. Having 2 golf carts and bikes was convenient . The owner was very responsive and the house was very clean with a well stocked kitchen. I have 2 young boys and the location on a circle or cul desac was nice for bike riding without the worry of golf cart traffic. As a native North Carolinian, BHI is our favorite beach locale and we would stay at sabal palm again.

Owner's Response: It's great that you enjoyed your vacation so much.We love the location of our house for the same reason - you get some respite from the heat but you can get to the beach in a flash. Our house keepers look after our house so well and we often get comments about how clean it is which is very important to us too. We've also done some painting earlier in the summer to freshen the house up.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent our sixth consecutive summer on BHI and were treated to a great week of relaxing fun and fantastic weather. The week was made all that more enjoyable by this great home. The home is very spacious -- far more so than is apparent in the pictures. In addition, the home is stocked with numerous high-end appliances, kitchen products/utensils, and other modern amenities (which we greatly appreciated, especially since we are very busy kitchen folk). It's apparent the home owners care about and frequently use the home themselves and are careful and discriminating to stock it with items that they appreciate using themselves. Sabal Palms Cottages is a cozy little neighborhood with a great gazebo overlooking a lagoon busy with all sorts of entertaining wildlife; we enjoyed stopping by in the evenings to sightsee. In addition, many of the neighbors are very friendly and helpful. Finally, Carrie is very responsive and prompt in all her business dealings, which made every transaction and communication pleasant and easy.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We too love cooking and being busy in the kitchen and love that you have enjoyed our kitchen tools and appliances. We also enjoy hanging out on the gazebo over looking the lagoon and spotting the wildlife while we're cooking on the grill. We're so lucky to have wonderful neighbours that make the Sabal Palm community as enjoyable as it is.
