About the property

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 on 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

Two Four-passenger golf carts

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.

Property was great!

  • 4 of 5

We had trouble with golf carts leaving us stranded, until we realized the batteries were all dry. We filled them with water and then worked on charger to get it working. After that transportation went a lot smoother.

Bought groceries, only to find out some was moldly when we opened packages.

But, despite those issues the stay was great.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!!

Great location. Well stocked. Big relaxing house. Great for families vacationing together!

  • 5 of 5

Surf's up is a delightful beach home perfectly located on Bald Head Island. There were two families staying with 3 kids aged 13-9. We all had plenty of room. Loved the 3rd floor and the crofter. We arranged for another family traveling with us to stay on Scotch Bonnet nearby. It's a great neighborhood and the most relaxing vacation spot you will find. The owners were extremely attentive and communicated well. Seamless vacation. Just the way you want it!

Perfect for a large group

  • 4 of 5

This was a great house for our large group of girls to stay for a wedding. It is right on the beach! Our only issues were the golf carts. One stopped working and both were extremely slow to the point where we were constantly passed by other drivers. Otherwise, it was perfect for us :) Thanks!

Beautiful home with lots of space

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this home for a girls trip and it was just what we needed. Lots of space and very clean. The crofter is very cozy and you can watch the sunset from the beach which is a short walk away. Would love to stay here again.

GREAT House for a get-together

  • 5 of 5

This is my favorite house we have stayed at on BHI - perfect for large groups looking to socialize with the open floor plan (kitchen spills into dining room spills into living room) and the HUGE porch, much of which is screened with an ocean view. It is tastefully decorated and stocked with the pots & pans you'll need in the kitchen. There are also bedroom options with lots of privacy - one does not have as much privacy in the loft, but can be lots of fun as well. There were even enough bathrooms for 10 people! Highly recommend a stay here!

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.
