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.

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.

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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home! My mom and I agreed it was the most well-stocked kitchen we've ever seen in a rental. The home was simple and tasteful. We enjoyed every aspect of our week and would definitely come again.

Owner's Response: BHI is a place that pulls you back again and again, and we love it when people choose our home to come back to. We have a great house manager who keeps the house so clean, and she's on hand during our guest's stay should she be needed. We love cooking so the kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and utensils.

Owner's Response: We have a wonderful house manager who helps us take care of our home, and we definitely view the house as our home, rather than a rental property. We have filled it with all the things that we enjoy, and cooking is one of them, so we have most things you'll need in the kitchen.

Loved the home.. Will definitely rent again!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as listed. Great neighborhood, proximity to beaches, grocery store, restaurants and both clubs on the island. The home feels new because it's nicely decorated and a recent renovation. Very spacious as well. We had visitors during the week and everyone was quite impressed with the home. It was a special perk having 2 golf carts especially with visitors. The location directly on the pond was great for morning coffee to watch birds, large alligator and herons. With the fans on the deck, they kept the space cools and was a common place to relax at the end of the afternoon or after dinner. Dining in is a great option in this home because the gourmet kitchen is stocked with all the cooking utensils and great spice cabinet. No need to worry about chairs, umbrellas --- all available. We will definitely rent again. In fact, we enjoyed it so much we extended our weekly stay for 2 additional nights. Hope you get to enjoy as well.

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at Bald Head Island and we had such a wonderful time! With two young kids, the layout of this home was perfect and it felt spacious and clean. It is perfectly situated in the middle of the Island, close to all attractions and market, and the forest provided needed reprieve from the sun on the beach side. We cooked almost all of our meals and loved the very well stocked kitchen! We look forward to future visits to BHI and to renting this home again.

Owner's Response: We too loved the lay out of the house when our kids were small, and now they're grown, we still feel the same way. The house lends itself to our family being together whether in the kitchen, dining room or family room which we love. Cleanliness is important to us and we're fortunate to have a great, and very responsive house manager.

Rented this property for our 10th year on the island and it could not have been more perfect for our family! Beautiful home with everything you need. Very clean and beautifully decorated and very comfortable! The kitchen Is fully stocked and great for cooking in at night. The location was perfect for getting to the market, golf course and beach. We will definitely rent again. Thank you, Carroe for sharing your home with our family.
