Bald Head Island house description

Welcome to A Bird House, a beautiful 4 Bedroom, 3 Bath island home on exclusive Bald Head Island.

New flat screen TV in Apr 2012, wonderful tropical colors throughout. Our home is nestled in the woods along Bald Head Island Club's fourth fairway with a marvelous screened porch overlooking the golf course and full front porch. A Bird House spaciously sleeps 11 (1 K, 1 Q, 7 twins which includes a unique bunk room for the kids). Plenty of room in the kitchen and dining areas to handle a large crowd. We have a fully equipped kitchen for the gourmet vacation cook. The family room provides a central meeting area and includes a flat screen TV w\satellite, DVD player, and games, books and movies for family entertainment.

The first floor master bedroom opens to the screen in porch and the bath has a lovely Jacuzzi tub. The second master bedroom has a private bath; the third bedroom has twin beds with a cute trundle and the nautical bunk room must be seen. The kids’ rooms share a full bathroom. This is perfect home for two families with kids.

A Bird House is wonderfully relaxing for kids and adults alike at this Bald Head Island retreat. Swings, hammocks and rockers abound.

BHI is a secluded island located two nautical miles off the coast of Southeastern North Carolina with over 10,000 untouched acres of beach, marsh and maritime forest preserves.

The home also includes a garage with two golf carts to take you around the island and numerous bikes. A Bird House is centrally located on the island - access to the beach, the marsh, the market, the club, the lighthouse, the harbor are all easy to get to via bike, cart or foot.

You can only reach BHI by boat - a transition that prepares you for a place strikingly different from the one you left behind. Bald Head is a beautiful island, which can be reached by ferry from Southport, North Carolina, and is approximately 40 minutes from the Wilmington, North Carolina airport. Transportation on the island is limited to golf carts, bikes, skates and feet (shoes optional)...an accurate reflection of the slower, more relaxed island attitude.

Bald Head Island is a distinctive maritime world with over 10,000 untouched acres of beach, marsh and maritime forest preserves. Once on the island, visitors can enjoy relaxing on the 14 miles of unspoiled and wonderfully unpopulated beaches, kayaking or canoeing on the marshes, exploring the wildlife preserves, fishing, crabbing, biking, rollerblading, swimming in the ocean and formal or informal dining.

The island is a unique getaway that truly offers activities for everyone.

You may also purchase a temporary membership to the BHI Club for an additional fee to enjoy tennis, volleyball, croquet or enjoy the many activities of the BHI aquatics.
