Bald Head Island House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Newly Built home with 4 bedrooms & 3 full bath

Welcome to Sunset Dune, set on a quiet and private cul-de-sac with beautiful sunsets and views of the Ocean and Inlet from the front porch. Newly built in the summer of 2013, this ocean and sunset view home is the perfect place for your memorable family vacation or getaway with friends. The breathtaking South Beach is only a 2-3 minute golf cart ride away.

This family vacation home has just been professionally decorated and furnished by one of Bald Head Islands best kept secrets and full-time island resident, Barbara Adams. The home sleeps 10 and has four bedrooms, which includes 2 master suites with King size beds, 1 bedroom with a Queen, and the last bedroom with 2 twin beds, as well as 3 full baths. It has 2 pullout couches, 1 in the living room downstairs and 1 upstairs in the great room. There are two outdoor decks, the downstairs deck is screened-in and the upstairs deck is the perfect place to snooze in the sun or watch the sunset with a glass of wine.

The first floor features a beautifully decorated living room, dining room and gourmet kitchen as well as the 1st Master bedroom with a king size bed, flat screen TV and full bath. The spacious screened-in porch is where you will enter through the home and offers a handmade rustic dining table that easily accommodates 10. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with all amenities, granite counter tops and appliances.

The living room is open to the kitchen and includes a flat screen Smart TV. There is a breakfast bar with 4 stools and the dining room seats 8/10. A booster seat is available as well as a pack 'n play. Brand new washer and dryer are located on the second floor.

The second floor features the 2nd master bedroom which has a flat screen TV and full bath, a Queen bedroom and a 3rd bedroom which offers 2 twin beds perfect for kids. The Queen and twin bedrooms are connected by a full bath. The Great room has a pullout couch, flat screen TV and a table perfect for playing board games or assembling a puzzle.

The home is located on the West side of the island and is convenient to all the island attractions. In the garage you will find brand new 6-seater and 4-seater golf carts fully equipped with seat belts for the safety of you and your family. You will also find sand and beach toys, an umbrella and beach chairs for your use. There is plenty to do on the island - casual-to-elegant dining, several clothing/gift shops, camps and education programs, etc. There is a full service grocery store, ice cream shop and take-out pizza. Fishing, kayaking, surf lessons, scavenger hunts and sightseeing charters are available.

Temporary memberships to the Bald Head Island Club & Shoals Club (for a separate purchase) will be provided; so you can enjoy swimming, tennis, golf, and romantic dinners. Also, just added for 2014 the Club is installing a splash pad, sort of like a spray park for kids. It sounds great and will be added between the pool and the playground. We provide beach towels, all linens, pre-arrival cleaning, and wireless internet service.

Lastly, there is an outdoor shower with hot and cold running water. It is perfect for rinsing off the sand before you enter the house, or for taking the great shower out of doors!

Bald Head Island and Sunset Dune are truly special places. You will feel that the Island was designed just for you!

Quick Update: All the bedrooms have blinds but we just haven't updated all the pictures just yet :)

About Melinda

BHI is a special place for us and our family! We first visited the island in March 2008 and it was love at first sight. We then got married on the island in July 2010. It has been our dream since we first stepped foot on the island to own a home here and now that dream has come true. We are overwhelmed with excitement and want to share this excitement with you. Our only hope is that you fall in love with the island just as we have! Enjoy :) Mindy & Tom

Our family has vacationed in many VRBO rental properties and this is one of our favorites! The home is in a great location on the island, secluded feel but very close to beach. It's clean, comfortable ( except for bed pillows ) and relaxing. Well stocked kitchen, enjoyed both porches and the bikes and golf carts are in good condition. We would highly recommend this beautiful home.

Wow! We have vacationed on bald head for 8years, and this house was among our very favorites. It was immaculate, well-stocked and conveniently located to bhi club, marina and shops. The neighbor's were very welcoming- having a basketball goal in the cul de sac was def appreciated by our three young boys. The Whittys were very responsive and very friendly. Our only complaint....we wish we could've stayed longer! Thanks for a fantastic vacation.

A memorable stay

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time my family has travelled to Bald Head Island. We had no idea what to expect and it was truly one of the most memorable family vacations we've had. Mindy and Tom's vacation home made it that more special. The location and size of the house was perfect, the décor is beautiful and the amenities the house comes with were incredible. The home has a very inviting cozy feel to it, was clean and well-maintained. The kitchen was very well-equipped and included a good supply of spices and condiments. The golf carts were super easy to use but you can also easily bike or take a healthy walk to the marina area or grocery store with ease. We made good use of both clubs in the island. We enjoy fishing off the beach and found the Club at the tip of the island to be worth spending the extra money to join so we could easily access great fishing, enjoy the beach, lunch at the club, swim in the pool which ever took our fancy - it was a perfect go-between location for all of us. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us we will definitely be back again soon!

Creating Memories on BHI

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was exactly what our mutigenerational family needed, two master suites and two additional bedrooms that were perfect for our young grandchildren. The home was wonderfully equipped with everything that we needed. The golf carts and bicycles were in great condition and we were delighted to have one with seatbelts for the children. We have been renting on BHI for 7 years now and have stayed in a variety of homes in various locations on the island. This may very well have been our favorite. We are already planning for our next trip to our favorite place on earth and would highly recommend this home to other renters. Thanks Tom and Mindy for sharing your beautiful home with our family.

BHI veteran renter

Mindy and Tom, WOW!! You have a very beautiful home in Sunset Dune and it is something you must take great pride in. We really appreciated all the 'little extras' that made your home truly special like the extra flip flops, wall of beach hats, great supply of 'toys' (bikes, beach supplies, etc) and nicely stocked kitchen with spices and those necessary gadgets that we are all so accustomed to having. Your beach house felt like a home and is beautifully decorated. We often vacation at the end of the rental season and have come to expect a few 'end of season challenges' with rental homes. The challenges are usually in regards to cleanliness and I can definitely say that Sunset Dune scored an A+ in that department! Your home was immaculately clean which is difficult to do after months of heavy family usage. Thank you for providing such beautiful home for us to enjoy on BHI!

We had a couple of families in this house and had a really great time. The house was exactly as pictured and had everything we needed. The location was perfect for us with lots of kids as the house was on a cul-de-sac and even had a basketball goal! Can't wait to plan our next trip back!!
