Creek Front! Boardwalk/Dock, Great Views! 5.5 Bedroom, Great LSV GolfCarts

Bedrooms 5
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Our 5.5 bedroom house & crofter is great for two or three families (fits three families of 2+2 very comfortably). The bed configuration is:

Main 4BR House: 1. K, 2. Q, 3. T + T-Trundle, 4. T x 2,

Crofter: Q plus loft w/T x 2

If you are a multi-family group, the crofter (with a Queen plus a loft with two Twins) is great for a family with two kids that wants to both be with the group but also some privacy - it has a full bath, dorm fridge, microwave & coffee pot (ladder access loft in crofter, so loft is not for the very little ones).

For those who enjoy a meal at home, there is plenty of seating for all and our galley-style kitchen is fully appointed with everything you'll need to make a memorable meal, complete with an unforgetable view.

Hop on one of our two LSV (Low Speed Vehicle) street legal golf carts and you are at the beach in only minutes. (They will go 25+ MPH so please do not exceed the 18MPH BHI speed limit!) We spend time on the beach Every Single Day on BHI, and enjoy the open air golf cart ride there and back immensely BUT we also have the best of both worlds because we come home to the amazing and ever changing tapestry - that awesome Creek View. We think of it as an incredible live painting that changes every day.

We enjoy watching Egrets, Ibis and Osprey from inside the house or while sitting in the expansive screened porch. We watch our kids fish, crab, cast net, kayak and swim right out front daily. And what a treat to watch our 10 year old son dash straight out to the dock every morning for an hour or more barely remembering the existence of TV or video games.

We can walk left on the boardwalk out front and we are at the boat launch in about 2 minutes. Alternately we go the other way on the boardwalk with our first cup of coffee in hand every morning for an amazing and inspiring 10 minute creek view board-'walk'.

And, with easy access to the floating dock you can bring or rent your boat! Or, enjoy a paddle on the creek by canoe or kayak (an absolute favorite activity for our whole family). We have a canoe and kayaks that are available to use.

Come enjoy our family home on the creek, we think you will love it as much as we do!

Please note that we spend family time there each summer and typically cannot commit to certain weeks being available until we finalize our summer schedule, usually by March at which time we will show all available and unavailable weeks.

Families encouraged, parties discouraged and No Smoking please.

Great location, excellent views, perfect fit

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting Bald Head to celebrate my birthday and Easter with a larger than usual group of travelers. My group filled up the house and had a great time in doing so.

My wife and I have stayed all over the island and this is certainly one of our favorite spots. It's convenient for most things and having dock access to the marsh, along with kayaks and a canoe made it impossible to experience a couple of trips in them.

The owner sent many helpful emails before our arrival to let us know about events happening on the island and alerting us to a possible delay with the ferry schedule on our day of arrival.

We travel to BHI twice a year, and the next time we need this much space we'll look to stay here again.

Thanks again for the memorable vacation!

Great House, Great First Visit

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first visit to BHI and we loved it! A significant part of our enjoyment was directly related to this outstanding rental house. Spacious, beautiful and equipped with everything we wanted and more. The owners were attentive, responsive, and went out of their way to ensure our stay was the best it could be. Highly recommend this property to anyone looking to enjoy all that BHI has to offer.

Best Stay at Bald Head!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have vacationed at Bald Head Island since 2001 and we have stayed everywhere...on the beach, in the forest, and on the golf course. This home has them all beat by a mile! The home is beautifully decorated and spacious with a large kitchen, and a huge screened in porch. It is located on the creek which allows the family to fish and crab and kayak - all things that we never were able to do before. We find the location to be ideal as you are close to the harbor and not far from the market or the beach. Best of all, the owners go out of their way to make sure that your stay is perfect. This home is truly the best place to stay at Bald Head Island.

Simply awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Weather: Going to Bald Head Island this early in the season had us doubting the ability to fully enjoy the beach as we love to sun bathe and the temps were only in the mid-70's. We left tan (and a little burnt) and will say it was a much better experience than sitting in 90+ degree sun. the ability to open the windows, enjoy the sea breeze, and keep the house in the low 70's was wonderful. Needless-to-say, we have a new found love for the early beach season!

Home: The pictures do not do any justice to this gorgeous home. All other beach homes we have every stayed in were always decorated in a "cheesy" beach style. Not this one, it was true southern, coastal style. The kitchen is very well stocked with every utensil imaginable down to bar mixing tools. When at the house, we spent most of our time on the huge screened-in porch reading books or just enjoying the view with good conversation. The living area has plenty of comfortable seating space and even a musical keyboard for someone inclined to entertain. The second floor balcony oversees the creeks and we were fortunate to see hundreds on big, long-billed birds swirl around during the evenings for a truly breath-taking event!

Other Amenities:

The owners have thought of every detail, we never once said, "I wish we had this." With 3 kayaks and a canoe, it would be hard for someone to be left out of a trip on the water. The golf carts are top notch (I say that as we have experienced some not-so-good ones on the island and can go under-appreciated if one hasn't experienced it) and the 5 bikes are very well maintained. There are plenty of beach chairs, folding lawn chairs, beach umbrella, and even surf rod holders (which came in hand for me).

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

They say the next best thing to having a beach house is having good friends that do! Bald Head Island has been our vacation spot for 10 years. We have been extremely fortunate to stay in this wonderful house on the creek. The views are incredible, the house is beautiful inside and out and the owners are an amazing family that truly love Bald Head Island. The kitchen has everything you need and there is plenty of room in the main house and room for 4 more in the lovely crofter. You can enjoy the gas grill out on the back deck and the brand new golf carts will get you to and from the grocery store just a little bit quicker than most! When you want a slower pace during the day you can take out the new kayaks and enjoy the creek. You might just get a glimpse of a dolphin.

The most memorable moments you'll have will be sitting on the screened in porch with a cup of coffee or wine looking out onto the creek-with your good friends!
