Bald Head is accessible only by passenger ferry or private boat. Visitors and residents travel around the island by golf cart, bicycle or on foot.

Two golf carts, canoe access, and bicycles are included in your rental fee

The spacious, open floor-plan provides plenty of room for up to 10 guests. The first floor living room opens into the dining area with the deluxe kitchen just beyond. The kitchen is equipped with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and all the equipment you need.

Double doors open from the dining area to the large screened porch and the deck area equipped with a propane grill. The first floor bedroom and bathroom suite is furnished with a queen bed and can be closed off from the rest of the downstairs area.

The master bedroom has a king size bed. It opens onto a private balcony with a tree house view of the maritime forest. The third bedroom is furnished with two twin beds. The fourth bedroom contains a queen and set of bunk beds. Each bedroom is decorated in a beach cottage motif. The bathrooms are finished with granite countertops and custom tile work.

'The Palms' is stocked with books, videos, games and puzzles in case a rain cloud passes by.

LOTS TO DO

Your vacation will have a temporary membership in the Shoals Club available. The Club has a full-size pool, fitness center. It also has a poolside snack bar and a more formal restaurant. Beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas are available as part of the membership. We highly encourage all renters to take advantage of this impressive club.

Bald Head Island's 14 miles of beaches can be accessed at any of the 42 public beach entrances. We provide everything you need for a day of fun: boogie boards, beach toys, beach chairs and umbrellas, and beach towels.

You can also rent kayaks to explore the Island's creeks, bicycle to the Harbor for an outdoor lunch at MOJO's, take a hike along one of the Island's nature trails, or enjoy a relaxing day at the newly-opened Spa next to the Maritime Market. You'll be just minutes away from all of the amenities by golf cart.

Our home is a non-smoking home and pets are considered.

Contact us for more information. We look forward to helping you make memories of a wonderful Bald Head Island vacation.

About Domenic Mendicino

My two kids and I currently live in the Pittsburgh area and are huge Steeler fans. We always look forward to our next trip to our favorite place! BHI

Domenic Mendicino purchased this house in 2011

Why Domenic Mendicino chose Coastal North Carolina

We looked for a vacation home along the entire North Carolina coast and fell for Bald Head Island as we are sure you will too.

What makes this house unique

Our home is located conveniently in the center of the island for quick access to the market area or beach by foot or cart. We love to spend days at the beach and return to our cool comfortable forest home.

Beautiful Home, everything you need for a great vacation at Bald Head Island!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect, and just as described in VRBO - no surprises. It had everything you would need for a good week of vacation with a large family. We were able to relax and enjoy the beauty of Bald Head. The home is very convenient to the local grocery - which was a huge plus for a big family. Highly recommend this property for your consideration at Bald Head.

Great house, but needs a little love!

  • 3 of 5

The house was beautiful on the inside and well stocked with things you may need to cook or tidy up. However, the picture in the ad for the house was taken quite some time ago because it was much more "jungly" and covered by vegetation than I prefer. Our only frustration was that most of the beach chairs were broken and the garage "toys" for the beach were in need of replacement. (Broken boogie boards). It is a wonderful house that is centrally located, but needs a little tender loving care.

Excellent mid island forest location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to BHI for a family vacation. The Palms is in a great location, close to the beach, and grocery store. House is well appointed, great downstairs seating area, plenty of space for kids to play. House basically has two masters in my opinion, which was great for the two couples on our trip.

We lacked for nothing in the kitchen while prepping meals, plenty of storage space for groceries. Surplus of bath towels provided. We added a Shoals club option which gave us something different to do for water sports. We also enjoyed the canoe in the creek.

Well-Appointed, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at The Palms. The house had a great layout (there were 8 of us from 3 families) with all of us feeling like we had our own space. Located on a quiet street so my son could ride his bike up and down the street all by himself. The house is central to everything on the island - we loved the location as we were only 5 minutes from most anywhere. We had a few minor issues that were quickly remedied by the owner. I would recommend this house to families and extended families and most everyone. We will definitely be back!

Birthday/Anniversary weekend

My husband, mother and stepson stayed here for a quick weekend getaway. The house was comfortable and convenient to store, beaches. We enjoyed the maritime forest. It was very peaceful. The kitchen was well stocked with whatever you needed to cook a meal.We have no complaints except the weekend went to quick. I would stay here again.
