WE'LL PROVIDE ALL THE TOYS: Two PADDLE BOARDS, two KAYAKS for the march. Four bicycles for exploring the island; beach chairs for watching the ocean; two 4-person golf carts for getting around the island.
SHOALS CLUB MEMBERSHIP IS INCLUDED! The club has two additional dining venues, swimming pools, beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas for use at The Point; showers and locker rooms, PLUS a conditioned work-out area.
THE LOCATION ON THE ISLAND IS IDEAL. It is secluded in the semi-tropical maritime forest, minutes from the beach, sound, marsh, and the island's stores.
THERE'S NEVER A BAD-BEACH DAY AT BHI. The island is uniquely located on the eastern seaboard where the coast line transitions from north/south to east/west.
You will never have a bad beach day due to wind or waves. At the 'Point,' there is a 270% panoramic view of the ocean.
OUR HOME IS GREAT FOR LARGE FAMILIES, TWO FAMILIES or COUPLES. We have TWO master bedrooms, TWO sitting/TV areas in an open floor plan. Our wrap-around SCREEN porch is designed for dining, meditation, and enjoying the outdoors in a protected environment.

Our family chose to build our vacation home on Bald Head Island because of its separation from the main land and it's non-commercial, environmentally sensitive design. The 25 minute ferry ride provides the necessary threshold to de-compress from accumulated stresses of daily life. The island has four unique environments; the beach, dune, semi-tropical forest, and marsh. We have found that the variety of nature revitalizes our family with each and every visit.
I love to walk on the beach in the moon light ,it's so bright sometimes that it's like walking in sun light . Or sitting with our childern trying to spot a falling star.Maybe being lucky enought to see a sea turtle.These are the things that memories are made of .
We have just returned from an annual family beach trip, and we are already missing BHI and this home so much. It was perfect for our two families with plenty of space for children ages 6, 9, 15, and 18. The kitchen is well stocked and the recreational aspects (paddle boards, kayaks, bikes) were awesome. The bedrooms are actually much larger than they appear in the pictures and the living space was spacious enough for all of us to gather comfortably. Most importantly, our interaction with the owner was exceptional. We ran into two issues mid-week, and both were resolved within hours of my phone call to Paul. I highly recommend this home and look forward to returning to BHI soon.
We have just returned from our 7th annual trip to BHI. This was our first visit to this house. The open floor plan and bedroom configuration is ideal for family or friends. The home is conveniently located in close proximity to the Market and shops, as well as all other locations on the island. We particularly enjoyed the private, secluded cul-de-sac location. For those interested in kayaking and paddle boarding, access to these items makes an outing very easy! The owners were prompt with all communication which is always appreciated! We hope to return again next year!
We have stayed on BHI for 5 years, but this was our first visit to this house. We loved it! The location was convenient to everything and our tweens enjoyed the freedom of riding bikes to the Market, which was a 3 minute trip. We had a great time in the creeks with the kayaks and paddle boards. The house is very comfortable, well maintained, and well stocked. We enjoyed the open floor plan and many hours on the screened porch, which was a great place to play cards and board games. The beach chairs were nice to have when we did not go to the Shoals club. The owner is great to work with and very responsive. We had no issues, but he was quick to answer any question I had. The amenities, comfort, and location make this a great house that we hope to visit many times!
We've had the good fortune to enjoy this lovely home many times during the past 5 years...from family vacations to girls' getaways. Every time we visit, the owners have added something new to make things even more enjoyable...new beach chairs, kayaks, paddle boards and bikes, to name a few. The quiet location is so peaceful, yet it's centrally located so trips to any of the beaches are just a short golf cart ride away. The house is very close to the Maritime Market and terrific shops. We especially enjoy the well-equipped kitchen and dining areas and the grill. The screened porch is the perfect place to relax with a drink or while eating a meal...a nice big dining table, as well as plenty of rockers and other seating to enjoy being in the secluded maritime forest.
We have been coming to BHI since 1987 and have rented in just about every environment on the island, except the marina... But since this house was built, it's the only place we rent. Comfy beds and furniture, places to be by yourself or with a group, plenty of nice extra touches by the owners...a place we'd love to call our own!
Have loved this house for years. Impeccable condition; secluded location. Hugged by a giant live oak, the cottage offers quiet peace regardless of season. Wonderful place for family or friends, the design offers a perfect layout for convivial interaction while also providing separate space. Party on the porch, relax in the "flip flop room," hike in the woods, kayak in the marsh, bake on the beach - this is your best choice for BHI!
I have rented this house several times and I´m always impressed with the cleanliness of the house and the beautiful wood floors. My most memorable experience was having the opportunity to watch the Baby turtles boiling up out of the sand and heading to the water. It was a miracle to see them fighting so hard to make it to the top and finally reaching the water. Everyone cheers. I love kayaking in the marsh and watching the hawks and baldhead eagles fly over you. This house has everything you need to enjoy all that is available on the island, including two golf carts, beach umbrellas, bikes and kayaks. I wouldn't think of renting from any one else on the island. The family is very easy to deal with. Enjoy!
