Bald Head Island house description

WE'LL PROVIDE ALL THE TOYS: Two PADDLE BOARDS, two KAYAKS for the march. Four bicycles for exploring the island; beach chairs for watching the ocean; two 4-person golf carts for getting around the island.

SHOALS CLUB MEMBERSHIP IS INCLUDED! The club has two additional dining venues, swimming pools, beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas for use at The Point; showers and locker rooms, PLUS a conditioned work-out area.

THE LOCATION ON THE ISLAND IS IDEAL. It is secluded in the semi-tropical maritime forest, minutes from the beach, sound, marsh, and the island's stores.

THERE'S NEVER A BAD-BEACH DAY AT BHI. The island is uniquely located on the eastern seaboard where the coast line transitions from north/south to east/west.

You will never have a bad beach day due to wind or waves. At the 'Point,' there is a 270% panoramic view of the ocean.

OUR HOME IS GREAT FOR LARGE FAMILIES, TWO FAMILIES or COUPLES. We have TWO master bedrooms, TWO sitting/TV areas in an open floor plan. Our wrap-around SCREEN porch is designed for dining, meditation, and enjoying the outdoors in a protected environment.

UNIQUE ACTIVITIES:
Watch Sea Turtles hatch from their nesting place and make their frantic dash to the water.

Don't Forget the Lyrid Meteor Shower - June 14, 15, and 16; Delta Aquorid Meteor Shower - July 28 and 19
Perseid Meteor Shower - Aug 12 and 13.
The Point at the new moon is the BEST place for star gazing.

Also, there are many experienced fishing guides available to fish the marsh for red drum, flounder, and speckled trout; and off-shore fishing for spanish mackeral and king mackeral.

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  Why the Owner Chose Bald Head Island:
                  Our family chose to build our vacation home on Bald Head Island because of its separation from the main land and it's non-commercial, environmentally sensitive design. The 25 minute ferry ride provides the necessary threshold to de-compress from accumulated stresses of daily life. The island has four unique environments; the beach, dune, semi-tropical forest, and marsh. We have found that the variety of nature revitalizes our family with each and every visit.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I love to walk on the beach in the moon light ,it's so bright sometimes that it's like walking in sun light . Or sitting with our childern trying to spot a falling star.Maybe being lucky enought to see a sea turtle.These are the things that memories are made of .
