Bald Head Island House Rental Photos and Description

Relax and enjoy a carefree vacation in 'Southern Comfort'. This coastal Carolina cottage is hidden away on secluded Fort Holmes Trail in the heart of Bald Head Island's maritime forest. 'Southern Comfort' is tastefully decorated, beautifully maintained and furnished with everything you'll need for a memorable stay. Wi-fi, linens, beach equipment, a charcoal grill, two golf carts and departure cleaning are all included. A temporary membership to the BHI Club is included in the rent (for weekly rentals only). You can purchase a daily membership if you wish for the Club's fee. Or you can choose a membership in the Shoals Club if you wish.


Enjoy outdoor dining, curl up with a book or just relax on the spacious screened porch that adjoins the living and dining area on the ground floor. We anticipated all of your cooking needs when we stocked the large, open kitchen. A powder room and generously sized master bedroom/bath suite are also on the ground level.

Upstairs you'll find a second full bath and two more bedrooms, each charmingly decorated and furnished, one with twin beds and the other with one twin and bunk beds. Kids will love using the upstairs sitting room with its own television and DVD player, comfortable seating and game table. 'Southern Comfort' also has a high chair and Pak and Play for your little one.


'Southern Comfort' is located in the western side of Bald Head Island, a short golf cart ride to the ferry, the Maritime Market and several accesses to South Beach as well as the Shoals Club and BHI Club. At the Shoals Club, you'll find a swimming pool, separate baby pool, fitness center and boardwalk to the beach. The Club provides beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas. It also features an outdoor snack bar and an elegant restaurant for more formal dining.

The BHI Club's 18-hole George Cobb designed golf course has been completely refurbished. The Club has several venues for dining including the popular Pelicatessen that adjoins the swimming pool. It also offers four newly resurfaced tennis courts, four croquet courts and a fitness center.

Bald Head Island's 14 miles of beaches are known as a sea turtle nesting area. The Bald Head Island Conservancy offers turtle walks during nesting and hatching season as well as a variety of nature programs throughout the year. While you're here, rent a canoe or kayak and explore the creeks and marsh. Try your hand at crabbing or surf fishing. And you won't want to miss Old Baldy, the oldest lighthouse in North Carolina.

'Southern Comfort' is a non-smoking home and pets are not allowed. On-Island manager is available to help with issues that may arise.

We'd love to host you and your family for a memorable visit on Bald Head Island.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

I had the great pleasure of staying at Southern Comfort for Spring Break 2016. I was completely unfamiliar with Bald Head Island and had inquired on 7 different properties for the week. I feel like I totally lucked out with the selection that we made. Southern Comfort was perfect. We were a party of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids) and the space and layout were ideal for us. The place was impeccably clean. I also thought that it was in a superb location. I loved the interior woodsy feel and enjoyed getting the shade and break from sun and wind that you find by the beach. Loved this place.

Lovely vacation

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Southern Comfort for our first visit to BHI. We loved our vacation and look forward to going back. Our favorite memory is watching the baby sea turtle release! The home is spacious and clean and met our needs. The two golf carts were convenient and so much fun. The beds were comfortable. The screened porch was lovely and the location, nice and shady. The bikes need upgrading and we did not pack our own since they were provided. Beach toys were provided which was great. The TVs could use an upgrade as could the rainy day game selection. We had a few minor issues with the house, but the manager took care of things the same day we contacted him. His service was fast and much appreciated.

Southern Comfort

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in the forest and Southern Comfort was a welcomed surprise. We enjoyed the quiet, private street and clean house. The wildlife sightings on Fort Holmes was a bonus. This was our 2nd time working with Mike and he has been very professional and helpful every time. Bald Head Island is our favorite vacation location and we look forward to next year.

Quiet location - Wonderful Screened Porch!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent a week at Southern Comfort and loved it! The house was immaculately clean when we arrived. Spacious and airy. We ate lunch and dinner on the screened porch daily as well as spent time just relaxing out there. Everything we needed was provided and Mike was responsive to all questions we had. I will note that the pack and play is an older version (super clean!!) but current pack and play sheets are too small - we used one of the twin bed sheets and that worked fine.

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved our stay at Southern Comfort on BHI. The house was perfect for us and the location in the maritime forest was very quiet yet close to everything. Mike was great to work with, he even allowed us to change our arrival date last minute due to an early tropical storm in the area. As a result we had perfect weather our entire stay. We plan to return soon!

A lovely weekend escape for a wedding

  • 5 of 5

I had an excellent visit at Southern comfort for a family wedding weekend. The pictures and description are very accurate. Upon entering the home, it felt comfortable and welcoming. The property was clean and well maintained and was perfect for our family. I have 2 children--2 years old and 5 years old. The house does have a pack and play available, bunk beds, board games, and sand toys--which were all a joy for my kids!

The owner emailed me quickly and provided me with accurate and appropriate information. He even personally called me to clarify additional questions that I had.

I would definitely recommend this home to my friends and hope to return to Southern Comfort! The golf carts are a huge benefit in Bald Head Island! I loved the proximity/easy access of this home to areas all over the island.

Thanks to Southern Comfort for providing my family with a lovely experience!
