659 CHICAMACOMICO WAY 'TWO BY THE SEA'......Relax and enjoy this wonderful home located in the award winning Cape Fear Station community on Chicamacomico Way. You will be only a short walk or golf cart ride away to East Beach and also the Shoals Club. You will be right across from the Cape Fear Commons Green. Not only is this a lovely view from the expansive upper porch it is also a great place for a family friendly game of football, Frisbee throwing, tag or if you have a gymnast in the family, lots of room for cart wheels!
'Two by the Sea' is a reverse floor plan home with the main living area upstairs that allows you to enjoy the view from a higher elevation and capture the ocean breeze. The master bedroom and bath are located on the second floor with the living area. The remaining three bedrooms are on the first floor. The first floor also has an expansive front porch and a screen porch off the back of the house.
This home was built in 2002 and was originally one of the model homes for the Cape Fear Station developement. As the newest community on the island, 'Cape Fear Station' has become the 'place to be' on Bald Head with it's proximity to the exquisite Shoals Club and the unparalleled East Beach.
If you have never been to Bald Head before, the most frequently asked question is 'how do we get the house?'. Before getting on the ferry make sure you have made a reservation for the tram service that will take you directly to the house along with all your luggage. There will be a golf cart at the house for your use during your stay to get around the island. Make sure to make your tram reservation for your return trip. The tram will arrive to pick you and your luggage up at the house about 30 minutes before your ferry departure. The second most asked question is 'is there a grocery store?'. There is a grocery store on the island that stocks just about everything you may need, including beer and wine. There is, however, no liquor store on the island so you will need to bring those supplies with you if needed. There are also multiple dining options on the island.
Although the golf carts look like a lot of fun to children, you must be a license driver to operate one. This is strictly enforced for everyone's safety. The house comes with two carts, one six passenger and one 4 passenger cart. There are also two bikes in the garage for your enjoyment.
Newly added WIRELESS INTERNET for those that can't get away from it all! It allows you to sit on the upper veranda, enjoy the ocean breeze and get your work done before you head to the beach and relax!

"This was a wonderful home for us to come back to after spending each day at the beach. The home is spacious, light and airy, yet it is also snuggled in amongst lots of greenery. We loved the open layout of the second floor living area with it's high ceiling and a large gracious porch where we could sinkin into the cushy chairs, sip our drinks, bask in the late afternoon sun and feel the breezy air. The park across the street was such a great thing to have for our girls as they loved running around there and playing hide & seek while we relaxed and watched from the porch. This was our first time on BHI and after exploring different parts of the island we realized that our favorite area was the Cape Fear point and that we were lucky to have picked such a great home in such a wonderful location!"
We stayed here for a girlfriend's birthday and we had an amazing time! There were 6 of us and we were all comfortable and had our own space. We also loved that we were able to bring our dog! The upstairs is a great space to hang out; we cooked, played games and spent time drinking wine on the big porch. The island is very quiet and the beach is beautiful. The owner is a member at the Shoal's club so we were able to have a nice birthday dinner there. We didn't have any issues and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We will definitely be back!!
Beautiful home with a lovely front porch. We spend most of the time on the porch while enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning and could even hear the ocean it was so quiet. The evenings were spent on the porch after a fun day of biking and beach sitting to relax with a glass of wine after a fun day. The furniture on the porch was very comfortable and plenty for all to sit on. Great kitchen for cooking and entertaining. Perfect location with a short drive to the beach on the golf cart. Great sleeping arrangements for all of us. What a great weekend!
Wonderful quiet home with a beautiful upstairs back porch. Large kitchen, nicely appointed for people who love to cook and entertain. The sizeable upstairs living space lends to this perfectly. The beds were all comfortable with many sizes to accommodate adults and children. Great location with a quick golf cart ride to the prettiest area of the beach. Great and responsive property manager and owners. Perfect for dogs!!!!!
Just arrived tonight for our weekend holiday and very disappointed .
First, we have been provided with 1 towel per person. These towels show their age, thin and one with tears. As a runner & avid beach person, I do take two showers a day. Did not expect the need to wash towels on my vacation.
Secondly, I understand that every persons desired mattress comfort is different. However, for the price we paid, I did not expect to find torn, stained mattresses. Very uncomfortable and of course they must be old due to worn covers.
Thirdly, found outdoor patio cushions to be ripped with foam showing through, and bugs crawling out of the foam. I understand we are outside in nature, but these cushions were ready for the trash many months ago.
Stains in the carpet, worn mattresses, ripped patio furniture......it's time for some TLC.
Home is up for sale which may explain the neglect.
I have supporting photos to validate every issue I have thus far.
We stayed this past week, and very much enjoyed the location of the house. Being near the shoals club, and having easy access to both the east and south beach was very nice. We had 8 folks in the house, and we were very comfortable. As other reviews have mentioned, the main living area is very nice. We had groups cooking dinner, playing games, and relaxing and they could all interact which was nice. Morning coffee on the frpnt porch was very nice.
The only negative was that the house seems to be showing its age. We know it is up for sale again, so perhaps it is due to that. There was nothing terribly wrong with the house, but there were many things which felt like it was more an investment than a home:
* Stains on the carpet
* Poor repairs on downstairs shower
* Alot of old/broken stuff around the house (coffee makers, beach chairs, etc).
* Upstairs got a bit warm when cooking
Nothing above ruined he weekend, we had a great time and enjoyed our stay. The space was great, it just needs a bit of TLC.
Only good things to say about this house, its location, and the very responsive property manager. We enjoyed everything about the property. Early on, we had one maintenance issue, but the manager resolved it very quickly. Really, rent this house -- it was great for our group (two families and two dogs).
