Overview

Bald Head Island House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bathroom home on the ocean

Surfs Up is a beautiful oceanfront location tucked in the middle of Flora's Bluff on Bald Head Island. The main home consists of 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths and there is a separate 1 bedroom and 1 bath 'crofter.'

The beach is right across the cul-de-sac with access through a public walkway. Everyone can congregate around the kitchen bar, large dining room table or relax in the comfortable sofas and watch some television. The kitchen is fully equipped with enough utensils, cookware and dishes to make you feel right at home. A large screened in porch with plenty of seating is the perfect spot to relax and feel the ocean breeze.

On the second floor, you will find the master bedroom with a king sized bed, private bath and a private oceanfront balcony. Just down the hallway is a queen sized bed with a shared bathroom. The upstairs has even more accommodations with another queen bed and two twin beds. A fourth bedroom located in the separate guest house called a 'crofter' is the perfect spot for guest(s) that want a little more privacy. With a queen bed and a private bath, your guests can come and go without disturbing anyone in the main house.

Sleeps 10: K/Q/Q/Q/T/T

Guestbook comments from the manager

just wanted to drop you a note and tell you how much we enjoyed the house. It worked out perfectly for our group with the “bunk room” upstairs. We loved the access to the beach. It was so nice to be able to just walk to the beach without planning a big production to get there, especially with teenagers that don’t wake up early! We grilled fish or steaks almost every night and were very impressed with the nice grill you have. The golf carts were very nice and in top shape. The bikes were fine, my wife and I used them on several occasions. We will certainly keep this house in mind next year when we are looking for a place to stay.

2 Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the week of July 4th (two couples and 5 teenagers) and we had plenty of room. The location was great, mid-island with great access to the beach. It had everything we needed to enjoy a worry free week at the beach. The golf carts were in really good shape with batteries that stayed charged the whole day, even with a lot of use (we had friends whose cart always died by sundown). It may not seem like a big deal but it really is. I was amazed at how well the AC worked, it was extremely hot that week and the house was almost too cool sometimes. The home is a duplex but you would almost never know it was, from the inside or out. We never once heard our neighbors.

Surf's up

  • 4 of 5

The home was well appointed and had all the essentials needed to "beach" and cook. We cooked the whole time we were there. The access to the beach made it easy for all family members to use at their leisure. We love BHI and are planning future vacations.

Great House on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Four couples stayed at Surf's Up for a wedding and it was a perfect location on the island--half way between both big country clubs--and easy access to the beach across the cul de sac. The house was clean and the owners accomodating. We recommend Surf's Up to families and friends looking for a relaxing vacation at BHI.

Relax by the ocean

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th visit to BHI. Everything was great. The only suggestion I have for future renters, is you might want to bring a frying pan if you are going to try and fry anything. All other pans are great, it just looks like past guests, haven't taken care of there pans very well :)

Besides that everything thing was perfect, enjoyed the soap and shampoo that was left, very nice!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We appreciate your feedback, as it is the only way we learn how to make the experience better for future guests. We will make sure to purchase a frying pan for future renters. Thanks, The Phillips/Cordes Phillips.

Great week at Bald Head Island

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to BHI and we loved it. The house was delightfully decorated and very comfortable. The location is great and the views are quite pretty. The golf carts, chairs, and bikes are great assets as well. While it is a duplex, it was quiet and there weren't any noise issues.

We Loved Surf's Up!

  • 5 of 5

Surf's Up is ideally situated with easy beach access and great views. The home is well appointed, comfortable and charming. I could live on the front porch! The owners are gracious, prompt in responding to inquiries, and very professional. We had a fabulous long weekend with friends and would happily rent this house again.

Car: not necessary

Accessible only by ferry, Bald Head Island is an opportunity to get away from the crowded and congested beach experience. Only golf carts are used as transportation with ample roads for biking and miles of beach for walking.

Listen to the birds or observe a nesting turtle, you chance to escape is here.
