Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Car-free Bald Head Island, located on one of North Carolina's southernmost islands where the Cape Fear River meets the Atlantic Ocean, is just 35 miles south of Wilmington, NC. Accessible only by passenger ferry or private boat, Bald Head Island’s quiet, stress-free pace helps visitors appreciate the beauty of its 10,000 preservation acres of maritime forests and saltwater marshlands, and the 14 miles of spectacular beaches. Sabal palms grow naturally on the island thanks to the subtropical environs. Moreover, because of the island’s geography with eastern, western and southern beaches, it is possible to see the sun rise and set over the water from Bald Head Island.

Tucked away in the maritime forest, just a few minutes golf cart ride from the beach, the ferry and the Old Baldy lighthouse, are the Royal James condominiums.

The comfortable two bedroom condo at Royal James 1D is perfect for a simple, quiet time away. Royal James 1D is steps away from the refreshing swimming pool and a quick golf cart (a four passenger golf cart is at your service) or bike ride from the beach. Sit on the back balcony/deck and watch the birds and ospreys in and around the lagoon, or admire golfers on the course, or perhaps kick back with a novel while enjoying the shade of the live oak on one of the two shaded decks.

In addition to all of the fun activities on the miles of uncrowded, pristine beaches, the marshlands are accentuated by a beautiful meandering tidal creek that is perfect for kayaking or canoeing. Enjoy hiking and cycling all over the island or climbing up the historic 1817 lighthouse for a bird’s eye view of the island. Hike or bike the island and spot fox, deer, ospreys and other wildlife. Take an evening stroll on the beach and look for giant loggerhead sea turtles laying their eggs or the baby turtles hatching and crawling into the sea. The Nature Center offers guided nighttime turtle walks and other nature programs.

You may book your ferry reservation at (910) 457-5003 and inquire about the Ferry and Parking Fees.

Why The Owner chose Bald Head Island

We love Bald Head Island since we first visited in the early 1970s. Since then, we have owned property, visited and at one point, even lived on the island for a almost a decade.

The peaceful pace of the island where everyone cycles or rides in golf carts, the miles of open, clean uncrowded beaches, water to swim, kayak, surf or fish in all over the island, sunrises and sunsets over the water, and all the wildlife make Bald Head Island a special place.

Excellent value on BHI

  • 5 of 5

This was a very clean condo in a great location. The price is quite reasonable for Bald Head. The best part, however, was working with the owner, who was so helpful and accommodating.

Great Old School Beach Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a Great Labor Day with our teen boys & our dog! Condo is in great location to market & beach. It was great to have a place with bikes, beach towels, boogie board on hand. Also, kitchen was well supplied with dish soap, paper towels, salt & pepper etc. We enjoyed grilling out grouper for our last night!

We had an issue with the golf cart and Marty was quick to get it handled for us.

Thanks for a great stay!

Bald Head Island is a one-of-a-kind relaxing vacation. Fun for the whole family, great for dogs. Loved the Royal James Landing properties for their location, simplicity and ease of use.

Wonderful Island Home - Cozy & Affordable

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Bald Head Island. We highly recommend this place for anyone looking for an affordable and clean place to stay on the island. Our time on the island was short but sweet. We unfortunately had to leave the island a day early due to the hurricane. However, the owner of this unit was wonderful to work with and even gave back our money for the night we were not able to stay. Just because of the hospitality and willingness to work with us, I would absolutely stay here again. Its also a bonus that we were able to have our dog with us without any issues.
