Coastal North Carolina House Rental Photos and Description

Tranquil Forest setting- 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath Forest Home

Welcome to our Forest retreat on Bald Head Island! We fell in love with Bald Head Island 8 years ago, rented all over the island, and finally pulled the trigger on this amazing home and have never looked back. Our gorgeous home is situated in the Forest (we LOVE being in the forest) among large oak trees with hanging Spanish Moss, and quiet tree lined streets. Our home is also on a cul-de-sac, no thru traffic, great for the kids playing outdoors. The home was built in 2006, practically brand new! Has 3 bedrooms, reverse floor plan (living area upstairs), 2 four person golf carts, Wifi, 4 flat screen TV/cable, beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, coolers, high chair, pack and play, baby intercom system- everything one could possibly need.

**We do NOT have access to the Shoals club.

** 7 night minimum stay during peak season- June, July, August.

About Lisa Noble

My husband and I fell in love with Bald Head Island 7 years ago and finally found a home in the forest that we love. We hope to have many more years of memories in our new home but would like to share our lovely home with others until we become full time residents.

Lisa Noble purchased this house in 2012

Why Lisa Noble chose Coastal North Carolina

We love the forest and the reprive from the sun in the summertime. The home is also on a very quiet cul-de-sac, great for kids and our future grandchildren.

What makes this house unique

The home is a reverse floor plan so the kitchen, living space, crofter (which is connected to the house- meaning whoever is in crofter, kids, have to go through house to exit) and one of the screened in porches on the second floor. We fell in love with house because of the enormous windows on the top floor, you feel like you are in a treehouse! We also loved all the outdoor living space. So many wonderful details in this home not to mention the fully equipped gourmet kitchen! This is a NON SMOKING property. This is a FRIDAY to FRIDAY rental

Lovely accommodations with generous amenities

  • 5 of 5

Bald Head Island is the perfect vacation for people who want to slow down and enjoy the moment. The house location is very private and gives family members great together areas as well as private retreat spaces. We found the owner very helpful and prompt in all transactions. I highly recommend this property for families.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a more comfortable stay. The house was furnished with everything needed and then some. I loved being in the forest as we saw so many painted buntings. The weather wasn't the greatest during our stay but it didn't matter because we were happy hanging out inside. Cooking was a pleasant experience since the kitchen was fully stocked. We enjoyed exploring on the golf carts even when it was raining since one had rain gear. Everything was thought of in order to make guests feel at home. I really hope to return. Awesome getaway!

What a great and relaxing experience staying at Painted Bunting Court! We just happened to be there when the painted buntings arrived on the Island and will never forget our first sighting just 10 foot from us near the front porch. We listened to them singing their songs from dawn to dusk, along with several other songbirds. That experience alone will have us returning.

We would also like to comment on the owner and manager's genuine cordialness towards us when we inquired if we could store our luggage and refrigeration/freezer items at their home before our booking started. We were already on BHI experiencing a week on the marsh before our week in the forest at Painted Bunting Court when we received the call of a death in our family. Noticing that "Bunting Cottage" had a few days of vacancies before our actual booking started, we call the owners and asked is we could store our belongings there while we drove back to Michigan for the funeral. We were greeted with more understanding and warmth than expected. We cannot express how much this meant to us.

When we returned back to BHI after the funeral for our week of vacation at the "Bunting Cottage", we were greeted with outstanding weather, songbirds galore, and the peace and tranquility that we needed.

Most of our vacations have been through either VBRO or other rental agencies and we can state with certainty that this property ranks right up on the top. The kitchen was more than adequate for our needs, as well as the overflowing linen closet. The decor was warm and inviting...even though we chose to cover up most of the furniture because we had our black Labrador with us! This was our first experience with a reverse floor plan and it proved to be just fine. Initially we were worried that getting up in the middle of the night for a late night snack might be confusing! The screened-in porch off the kitchen was just perfect during the evenings and used often. The bathrooms were showroom quality and after seeing the shower tile work we were saddened that we didn't do something like that in our lakefront condo in Michigan.

As we sit here reliving our experiences at 2 Painted Bunting Court, we cannot come up with one negative item to report. Everything was clean, maintained, and better than expected. There is no doubt that we will return again next year! Thank You Lisa & Paul....and Toni.

Exceptionally Lovely home nestled in the Maritime Forest

  • 5 of 5

I have been going to BHI since 1980 and it is truly our favorite get away! We were previous homeowners and have also rented numerous homes over the years. This is on top of my list to rent again next year! The owners were a delight to work with and the home was clean, beautifully decorated, and well stocked with everything we needed. Love the screened porch on which we took afternoon naps and the location was quiet and peaceful with no sound except nature. Loved that we could take our family dog and enjoyed grilling on the back deck. This home has it all and I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for the perfect BHI retreat!

Super location as it is a good central location to the grocery store,marina. and our favorite beach spots. Thanks again for renting out your beautiful home. It was perfect! Will be back!

Outstanding Location at BHI

  • 5 of 5

BHI is our favorite place to visit and we have stayed at many homes on the island. This home is our new favorite. It was extremely well decorated and the location was perfect. It is a an oasis in the forest. You feel at peace with nature - but close enough to walk to the market or the beach. The owners were wonderful to work with before and after our stay. We highly recommend staying at this location!!

Fantastic Home in the Forest!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in a number of VRBO homes over the years and this is the nicest place we have stayed! We've stayed at the beach on Bald Head, but decided to try the forest for the Easter Weekend and loved it! This home is a beautiful treehouse and we felt like we were a million miles away (but still 5 minutes or less from the beach). We are a family of 5 with 3 boys (15, 13, 11) + dog and the layout was great. Our kids LOVED this house and being in the crofter! The kitchen is better stocked than mine at home! We played games, watched a movie, spent loads of time at the beach and biked all around. There were 4 bikes of varying sizes, the tires were pumped and ready to go. Plenty of beach towels, truly everything you might need. We will absolutely hope to stay in this house again!
