Our home at 15 Seagull Trail is perfect for couples or families who want to enjoy a relaxing seaside vacation. We are located between the Marina and the Bald Head Island Club and are truly waterfront with an unobstructed 180 degree of the water unlike oceanview homes with only narrow views between the waterfront homes The natural sea breezes keep the noseeums and mosquitoes at a minimum, unlike the forest and marsh homes. Seagull Trail with only 7 homes and large lots have privacy and quiet, unlike the high density housing of Killegray Ridge, Floras Bluff, the Marina, and other planned communities. The ample deck with two screened porch areas has eight rockers, benches, and picnic table. It is the perfect outdoor gathering place to view the beautiful sunsets over the water, the dolphins and seabirds, and the large ships going into the Cape Fear River.

Our kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, tile backsplash, and an undercounter ice machine. No more running out of ice on hot summer days! Also, we have 4 flat screen TVs, 2 with Blu-ray DVD players. There are two queen beds and two sets of twins. The two bedrooms with the twin beds have their own TV/DVD/VCRs. Each equal-sized bedroom has its own full bath and water views. The loft has a 360 degree view and a futon. Our timber-frame home even has vaulted timbers overhead in the bathrooms. The kitchen is very well equipped. There is an enclosed under-house shower with hot & cold water, a fish cleaning station, and a garage with 8+ bicycles, beach chairs, charcoal grill and two 4-passenger and one 6-passenger golf carts, plus an air compressor in garage.

There are games, puzzles, boogie boards, beach umbrella, and a basket full of beach toys. Fishing is excellent right off our beach. We offer optional membership to the Shoals Club at cost. Our weekly rates represent some of the best values for waterfront homes on Bald Head Island!

About Frank or Judy Spaeth

We built this timber-frame home in 1996. It was frustrating but worth the end result.

Why Frank or Judy Spaeth chose West Beach

We built a beach house that we ourselves would like to rent with friends, with all bedrooms the same size and each with its own full bathroom.

What makes this House unique

Our location offers privacy and quietness that most other BHI homes can't match. If you value a tranquil, serene vacation, please consider our home.

Great location with a little beach just steps away. The kids loved the sunsets, floating away on the inner tubes and seeing the barges pass by. There are 3 golf carts, so we had plenty of room for our beach necessities - chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards -- also provided by the cottage -- when we ventured off down the road to South and East Beaches. Just a wonderful vacation. We hope to make it an annual trip! Thank you so much!

                                                                        Favorite beach house ever!

And you can walk up the beach to the marina to the coffee shop. Loved being so close to the marina area and Old Baldy. The house faces west so we were treated to postcard sunsets every night and even fireworks one night going on over at Oak Island. Great screen porches to relax on and we ate outside every night. The owner is very easy to work with and we would love to return next year!

                                                                        Great Getaway

Too cold for swimming in March, but great sand play and kite flying. It was fun to see the big ships pass by from time to time and we could watch the ferry run, too. So nice that every room is the same and has a full bath. Owner was great to work with and extremely helpful. We'd love to return again in the future.
