My name is Dargan Tunstall. My family and I live in Wilmington, NC. We purchased this home 8 years ago and love it. I have been vacationing on Bald Head since I was a small child. We love spending as much time as possible on Bald Head Island. We hope that our home can help you create special memories too.
The Owner purchased this house in 2007
After visiting the Island for many years I chose to purchase a home in the maritime forest on the golf course. Our home is located right behind the primary dune so there are no houses behind us and the golf course is in front of us. This location provides privacy but is also close to all the amenities the Island offers.
We love spending the days exploring the Island. When we come home it is great to get the kids all cleaned up in the outdoor shower. Then we love to cook something delicious and sit out on the screened in porch. The wind blows through the palmetto trees creating a very relaxing environment.
This lovely and spacious home is located just inside the maritime forest, which provides a relaxing feeling of seclusion but easy and quick access to the south beach. Its three bedrooms, each with an en-suite bath, are spacious and located apart from each other, which adds to the overall quiet charm of the house. The open-concept living, dining and kitchen space is perfect for family time, and the screened-in porch off of the living area provides extra space to relax and enjoy meals. The house was clean, comfortably furnished and decorated with cheerful colors. The owners were very helpful and answered all our questions promptly. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants a little more privacy, a lovely golf course view and all the amenities of home!
This home is wonderful... relaxing, comfortable...perfect for family and friends. We cooked in everynight since the kitchen was equipped and the porch was fun to relax on, eat and visit. Also...supplies there! Bonus and a luxury! Makes your place an A+++.....little treats count!
The setting is amazing and quiet plus only a 5 minute walk to the beach or 2 minute golf cart ride. We rode bikes everywhere and was convenient and fun. Our family is excited to return. Seriously.... A perfect spot for all! Thanks, Tunstalls for offering your home. A gem!
Also- needed to call /email owners about club info and they responded prompty. Thanks again for everything!
My family had an unbelievable trip to Bald Head Island, and this property was a huge factor. Although the house has 3 bedrooms, there was more than plenty of space for our family of 5. The house provided a great area for congregating with an open den and kitchen. The kitchen had wonderful appliances and granite countertops. The dining area had a big table with plenty of seating
for all. The bedrooms are spread out so that you are not on top of each other. You really feel as if you can get away and relax. The screened porch provides an additional living room outdoors and is large enough for everyone. I love the decor of this house! The colors are the blues, greens and yellows of the beach, and the furnishings are lovely. The house was super organized and spotless. Every amenity you would need is on site. The garage contained everything you would need for a fun day at the beach. Bikes, boogie boards, beach toys, bocci, etc. We would definitely stay here again, and I would highly recommend this property.
