Welcome to A Bird House, a beautiful 4 Bedroom, 3 Bath island home on exclusive Bald Head Island.

New flat screen TV, wonderful tropical colors throughout. Our home is nestled in the woods along Bald Head Island Club's fourth fairway with a marvelous screened porch overlooking the golf course and full front porch. A Bird House spaciously sleeps 11 (1 K, 1 Q, 7 twins which includes a unique bunk room for the kids). Plenty of room in the kitchen and dining areas to handle a large crowd. We have a fully equipped kitchen for the gourmet vacation cook. The family room provides a central meeting area and includes a flat screen TV w\satellite, DVD player, and games, books and movies for family entertainment.

The first floor master bedroom opens to the screen in porch and the bath has a lovely Jacuzzi tub. The second master bedroom has a private bath; the third bedroom has twin beds with a cute trundle and the nautical bunk room must be seen. The kids’ rooms share a full bathroom. This is perfect home for two families with kids.

A Bird House is wonderfully relaxing for kids and adults alike at this Bald Head Island retreat. Swings, hammocks and rockers abound.

BHI is a secluded island located two nautical miles off the coast of Southeastern North Carolina with over 10,000 untouched acres of beach, marsh and maritime forest preserves.

The home also includes a garage with two golf carts to take you around the island and numerous bikes. A Bird House is centrally located on the island - access to the beach, the marsh, the market, the club, the lighthouse, the harbor are all easy to get to via bike, cart or foot.

You can only reach BHI by boat - a transition that prepares you for a place strikingly different from the one you left behind. Bald Head is a beautiful island, which can be reached by ferry from Southport, North Carolina, and is approximately 40 minutes from the Wilmington, North Carolina airport. Transportation on the island is limited to golf carts, bikes, skates and feet (shoes optional) accurate reflection of the slower, more relaxed island attitude.

Bald Head Island is a distinctive maritime world with over 10,000 untouched acres of beach, marsh and maritime forest preserves. Once on the island, visitors can enjoy relaxing on the 14 miles of unspoiled and wonderfully unpopulated beaches, kayaking or canoeing on the marshes, exploring the wildlife preserves, fishing, crabbing, biking, rollerblading, swimming in the ocean and formal or informal dining.

The island is a unique getaway that truly offers activities for everyone.

You may also purchase a temporary membership to the BHI Club for an additional fee to enjoy tennis, volleyball, croquet or enjoy the many activities of the BHI aquatics.

Great house for relaxing beach week

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at A Bird House, There were 11 of us, and the house was a great size for all of us. We loved the big living room and all the great movies--we had a great time watching movies all together. We also appreciated how well-equipped the house was--the kitchen had plenty of dishes, seasonings, and cooking utensils. It was great that the house came with beach towels, the boogie boards, and the bikes--so nice not to have to rent. And we loved the outdoor shower and the comfy beds. The owners were lovely to deal with--helpful and responsive. We would highly recommend this house to anyone interested in a fabulous beach vacation on beautiful Bald Head Island.

Awesome - Every Single Time

  • 5 of 5

This is just a wonderful get away - thank you so much for sharing your home with us. I believe this is my 6th girls weekend staying at A Bird House. We just love our time and homey comfort. The cool shade and golf course viwes are just lovely. The porch swings and rockers, listening to tree frogs, and watching island birds are my favorite part of the stay. Once again, amazing. Thank you! Sonya

It is aptly named -- it is a maritime forest gem!

  • 5 of 5

As we turned onto Dogwood Trail, the canopy of the maritime forest immediately enchanted our entire family and set the tone for a magical family getaway. The house is tucked on a quiet lane with little traffic; the only sounds heard from the porch were those of the birds chirping. When we were not lounging on the rocking chairs, we enjoyed using the bikes to explore the island. When it rained, we curled up on the couch and enjoyed one of the many movie selections. The kids loved the swing, the hammock, and the bunk beds with the secret hideaway. A Bird House is the perfect place to retreat from the chaos of the everyday.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house with a welcoming host! Every other year, I find a beach house for a short family reunion. All agreed that A Bird's House was the best yet. The house is charming and well-equipped; as another reviewer states, you only need to bring essentials with you. The floor plan is open yet cozy. We were 8 adults and never felt cramped. We especially loved cocktail hour on the spacious screened-in porch! The location is also perfect; it is secluded in the beautiful maritime forest and a short bike or golf cart ride to the harbor, lighthouse, market and beach! (Distances are definitely walkable, but I prefer the bike and the wind in my hair!) We were a bit last minute in our booking, but the host worked with us and was wonderful. We will absolutely be back and highly recommend this home.

Perfect vacation house. Best beach in NC and fantastic host.

  • 5 of 5

Hands down my best beach vacation ever. This was my first visit to BHI and I hope to return every year. My son and I joined another family at A Bird House to make 6. We had more than enough room. Everything you need is there which makes the ferry over a breeze ( beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, boogie boards, and fishing poles). All the beaches, marsh, and other sights are only minutes away by golf cart or bike, conveniently provided by your wonderful host. The house sits on a beautiful shaded lot surrounded by the maritime forest and bordered along the back by the golf course. We cooked every night and the kitchen is well equipped.

We had a wonderful time fishing, swimming, bird watching, and stargazing. I know this will not be our last trip to A Bird House.

Fantastic house, host and location on Bald Head

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at A Bird House for Memorial Day weekend. It was our first time on the island and we had a fantastic time (excellent location). The owner was super helpful before, during and after our arrival. The house is awesome and had everything --literally -- that we needed or wanted to entertain ourselves (bikes, boogie boards, sand toys, games, crabbing supplies, etc). We will definitely be returning (even though this review and the many other positive reviews here will make it inevitably harder to book).
