Nestled in the maritime forest, but only one minute to East Beach and the Shoals Club, this newer home offers the respite couples and small families welcome. Enjoy the quiet or the fun activities on the Common at Cape Fear Station, a great location for tossing the ball with children or the pets! The kitchen is very well equipped.
The house is brightly and professionally decorated and features an adjacent crofter with a queen bed for a separate couple or teens. In the house, two large bedrooms are upstairs, the master with a king bed, small deck, adjoining full bath with walk-in shower, and flat screen TV; and the secondary room with 2 twin beds and adjoining full bath. Relax on the large front porch and eat outside on the screened-in porch in back.
Renters have loved staying at our home because of its proximity to the beach, Shoals Club, the Bald Head Island Conservancy, and Turtle Central, and also because it's in the kid-friendly Cape Fear Station area. We will accept up to two well trained dogs (additional $200 fee required for first dog, additional $50 for the second dog). Sorry no cats. Optional weekly memberships to the Shoals Club and Bald Head Island Club are available.
There is high-speed Internet with WIFI throughout the house as well as free and unlimited long distance domestic calling. A gas grill and beach chairs are included. There are also two adult bikes available. 7-day rental required in summer. Minimum 4-days in other seasons.

We've been visiting Bald Head Island for 12 years and can't think of anyplace we like better. When you leave your car on the mainland and hop onto the ferry, you feel the stresses of work and home slip away. Our two labs can never get enough of running on the beach. But they also love sitting in the golf cart as we drive to and from the stores and restaurants. We love to sit by the pool at the clubs or play Bocci Ball on the beach. We live in Wilmington and get over as often as we can.
Michael purchased this house in 2012
We believe we have one of the cleanest and well kept properties on the island and want to share its comforts with your family. It's location is terrific since it's in Cape Fear Station, just a minute or so from East Beach, and a short walk to Turtle Central and the Cape Fear Village Green. So it's particularly good for families.
We love to cook and we have tried to accommodate our kitchen with lots of items you might need. In fact, many of our guests comment on it!
This house was so perfect for us with our two little kids and my mother coming with us (she was able to stay in the crofter). It's so convenient to get to the Shoals Club where we could all play in the pool. And the special events on the Common in Cape Fear Station around the July 4th holiday were loads of fun. And we were just a short walk. Everything was new and clean and the price very affordable. We've already booked our return trip for this spring.
This is our 3rd year staying at Salty Dog and, once again, it was a great stay. The house is always clean and fresh feeling, the kitchen is (still!) well appointed and Michael is always friendly, accommodating, and easy to get in touch with if issues arise. Definitely a great stay!
Many thanks to the owners of this wonderful property. The communication from the start was top notch and totally professional. You would think you were working with a full time management firm.
The house is in a terrific location and it it well equipped and comfortable.
And of course - Bald Head is just terrific place for family vacation.
Nicely appointed, well equipped comfortable house. It is situated on a quiet street with very easy access to the beach, Shoal's Club and Conservancy. The owner is quite attentive. This was as fourth rental on BHI and was clearly our favorite. We would gladly return in the future.
This was our second year staying at the Salty Dog and it is absolutely perfect! The location is great - just 2 minutes on foot or golf cart to the beach. The house has everything you could possibly need: the beds are super comfy and it's on a lovely, quiet street. The beach chairs, bikes and golf carts are all great quality. Michael is wonderful to deal with and takes care of anything that you need immediately. Best of all we could bring our yellow lab Lily and she loved her daily trips to the beach - the outdoor shower is perfect for cleaning dogs and dirty little boys! Thanks for another great vacation, we will most definitely be back!
Salty dog and Michael were an absolute dream! I cannot say enough good things. We have stayed in over a dozen houses in bald head and this is by far the nicest. It was extremely clean (I actually felt like I could sit on the couches) and well stocked. The only thing that I could see was missing were plastic plates/ cups for kids and he assured me that they would be there for future guests. Again I would whole heatedly recommend the house to others and we will definitely be back!
The house is beautifully decorated, kitchen fully stocked and location was absolutely perfect for our family. Our family and dogs LOVED our week at BHI! Michael was a pleasure to work with and checked on us during our stay and after our return home. We will definitely be back!!!!!
