Property description

Our custom-built, professionally decorated & designed home luxuriously accommodates multiple families. With 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, our home is the perfect destination for two or three families to share. Conveniently located in the heart of Cape Fear Station, we're just four blocks away from the Shoals Club and East Beach, and one block away from the Turtle Conservancy and South Beach.

We've thought of every detail to make your Bald Head Island vacation one you will never forget! Temporary memberships to the Bald Head Island Club AND the Shoals Club are included in your rental rate, so you won't have to worry about making special arrangements for club access. The BHI Club’s amenities include golf course, pool, fitness center, tennis courts, playground, and informal and formal dining. Please note that we're Sports Members of the BHI Club, so you'll have full access to the world-class BHI Golf Course when you stay at Rum Runner! The Shoals Club, which is a short walk from our home, features a spectacular pool overlooking the Point, beach access, a fitness center, and fine dining. The sunset views at the Shoals Club make cocktail and dinner hour a spectacular experience.

Our home is meticulously maintained and will provide a restful and comfortable retreat from your day's activities. Our open floor plan makes it easy for the whole group to be together, while our private bedroom suites make it just as easy for you to get away for quiet time when needed! Our fully-equipped kitchen features top of the line appliances for the gourmet cook, and you'll find all of the pots and pans, cooking utensils, and serving dishes that you could ever want. The Maritime Market is just a short bike or golf-cart ride away, making grocery shopping a breeze. Don’t feel like cooking? Walk over to the Shoals Club for a light meal at the Sandbar Grille or a gourmet dinner in the dining room, or take the short drive up to the harbor for a delicious meal at Delphina Cantina!

Our inviting home sleeps 12 people comfortably, which is a rarity on BHI! We have three master bedroom suites, each with a queen bed and an attached full bath. A fourth bedroom is outfitted with two built-in bunk beds and floor space for additional children, creating the perfect kids’ room. A fifth bedroom has two twin beds, and shares a full bathroom with the bunk bedroom. The family room provides a central meeting area and includes a high definition flat screen TV, stereo, DVD/VCR player, and games, books and movies for family entertainment. Three of the bedrooms also feature TVs and DVD players.

A spacious screened porch creates a perfect outdoor dining space or relaxing retreat at the end of the day. Our wrap-around front and side porch makes it easy to walk from front to back yard, and our wooden driveway and quiet back-alley provide a fun place for children to bounce a tennis ball or scooter. We're just steps away from The Commons, where you will enjoy walking, biking, playing Frisbee or maybe even a game of touch football!

Two golf carts, one 6-seater and one 4-seater, are provided for your use. We have two beautiful beach-cruiser bikes for you to use and enjoy during your stay, as well as eight beach chairs and several boogie boards. Your toughest decision during your visit to our home will be which fun (or quiet) activity to do next!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Our home is owned by two families: the Pollards from Richmond, VA and the Walkers from Potomac, MD. The husbands have been friends since Kindergarten; the wives were college roomates and have been friends ever since. Our two families have a very special friendship, which is reflected in the wonderful home we've created together. We fell in love with Bald Head the first time we saw it, and our families vacationed there together for many years before we decided to take the plunge and build our own home. Between us we have 7 children, and we never found a home that had enough bedrooms for our group! Now we have the perfect island retreat, where our children can enjoy the simple pleasures of a long summer vacation and we can escape from the busy world for a little while. We love our Bald Head Island home, and we love sharing it with people who appreciate the beauty and sanctuary that Bald Head offers.

Why the Owner Chose Bald Head Island:
Bald Head Island is an extraordinary place. The physical beauty of its beaches, forests, and maritime preserves is unmatched. The wildlife is astonishing and the fresh air is rejuvenating. But most of all, we love the quiet and relaxed pace of the island. Staying on Bald Head is like travelling back in time to our own childhoods, when things were much simpler. Children can just be children - playing outside all day, swimming until their fingers are wrinkled like raisins, climbing a tree, flying a kite, riding their bikes and scooters around the neighborhood. They seem to grow more during our time on Bald Head -- physically from the fresh air, exercise and great food; emotionally from the freedom. Bald Head's beaches are gorgeous, but the abundant simple pleasures are what make this island truly exceptional.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is in a fantastic location on the island. We're in the heart of Cape Fear Station, one of Bald Head's premiere neighborhoods. We chose this spot because of its proximity to the things we love most about Bald Head - the Shoals Club, East Beach, and the Turtle Conservancy. Our children love walking over to the Turtle Conservancy, which is only a block away. We often walk up to South Beach at Captain Charlie's Station in the evenings after dinner to catch sand crabs or talk a long walk. On hot summer days, we like to load up our golf carts with beach charis, coolers, and other supplies, and head up to East Beach for the day. It's only about a minute away by golf cart, so once we've set up camp, we can go back and forth to the house all day to restock our food supply, use the restroom, or take little ones home for naps. The Shoals Club is our other favorite destination on hot summer days. Between the beautiful pools and the enormous beaches, you can stay all day and never run out of things to do. Having lunch at the Shoals Club - or better yet dinner as the sun is setting over the water - is a real treat. We're also very close to Middle Island, where we love to go crabbing or exploring. We also like to take a canoe through the island's pristine waterways, or rent a motorboat and go out on the water for the day. As many times as we've been to Bald Head, we always leave wanting more!
