Our home is a wonderful, sunny home within the vast maritime forest of Bald Head Island, bordering the 6th Hole of the Bald Head Island Club's golf course. Loggerhead turtles come to lay their eggs on the beaches of BHI. The Island is the northern limit of the subtropics, where native palm trees grow. There are 12,000 acres of permanently preserved maritime forest, 14 miles of beach and vast expanses of undisturbed marshes and creeks. There are no crowds, no cars and no traffic on Bald Head Island. All travel on the island is by foot, bicycle or electric golf cart. Our home comes equipped with one four passenger electric golf cart and a temporary Sports membership to the Bald Head Island Club (included for all weekly rentals and available for rental periods less than 1 week). Please refer to the BHI Club website for details on the BHI Club's rules and regulations.

Our home is a two story home with a reverse floor plan that has been tastefully decorated with the feel of a beach home, not a rental property. The first floor includes the master bedroom with a queen sized bed, television and full bath. The master bedroom opens onto a screened porch so you can enjoy the night air before retiring for the night. The second bedroom on the first floor includes two twin sized beds and a desk. This bedroom also opens onto the screened porch. The third bedroom includes a queen sized bed. The first floor also includes a second full bathroom as well as the washing machine and dryer.

The second floor of our home is a bright and sunny great room which includes a full kitchen with a stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, and breakfast bar. The kitchen opens into the living room which has a couch, love seat, and chair as well as a large coffee table perfect for entertaining. The living room also has an entertainment center with a television and DVD player and our video library. Adjacent to the living room is the dining room with a large table, which seats six. The second floor also includes a half bath, a gate at the top of the stairs, and access to a balcony, with seating, that overlooks the 6th hole of the Bald Head Island Golf Course.

The outside of our home is surrounded by palm trees, so you hear the soft rustling of the palm fronds in the breeze. Our home has a golf cart garage and a private open air deck with an outdoor shower and a gas grill. Our neighborhood is quiet and friendly and great for taking walks and riding bikes.

Additional amenities include cable, wireless internet, unlimited long distance, use of 2 adult bicycles, 2 16' children's bicycles (helmuts not included), a boogie board, beach toys, 6 beach chairs.

We welcome you to our home and wish you a fantastic vacation!

              Location

              Our home is located within 5 minutes of the Bald Head Island Club and all of its amenities, the lighthouse affectionately known as "Old Baldy", the ferry terminal, Eb & Flow Restaurant, The River Pilot Cafe, and the Shops at Maritime Village. We are appoximately 10 minutes from the Bald Head Island Conservancy, Turtle Cove and East Beach.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              Why the Owner Chose Bald Head Island:
              For our vacation home, we wanted a place that had just the right feel; a feeling we could not describe, but knew when we found it. On our first trip to Bald Head Island, the ferry had not even finished pulling into the harbor and we knew that we had found our home away from home. The minute we docked, the island had just the right smell of cedar, pine, woods and water. The air had the right mixture of humidity and warmth with a refreshing ocean breeze. We immediately felt our minds and bodies relax into the calm of the island and we slipped into the camaraderie of Southern hospitality. The fact that no cars are allowed on the island adds to the ambiance. The golf carts are not only fun to drive, but are also quiet, so you hear only the sounds of nature instead of the hum of motors. Nature abounds on Bald Head Island. In our first two visits we saw several foxes, a variety of shore birds, deer, turtles, raccoons, small (and harmless) lizards and crabs. When we first saw the beaches of Bald Head Island, we could not believe the beauty. The long sandy beaches offer the perfect waves for swimming, an abundance of shells, tidal pools and ocean life. The water temperatures, even in late April, are warm enough to swim. During the day, there are plenty of activities offered through the Bald Head Island Club, such as tennis, croquet, golf, swimming, beach volley ball, play grounds, dining, etc. The Shops at Maritime Village offers shopping, a grocery store, ice cream shop, and spa. It caters to all tastes. The harbor restaurants are also excellent and offer a variety of food and fun. Bald Head Island offers something for everyone. At night, there is nothing like looking at the stars. Because the island is away from the lights of the mainland, the stars are abundant and bright. If you have not been to the island before, we know you will love Bald Head Island as much as we do. If you have been here before, you know exactly what we mean.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              11 Dowitcher Trail is uniquely situated on the island. Our home is located on the 6th hole of the Bald Head Island Club golf course with views of the course from our deck, screened porch and balcony. The house also offers proximity to the beach, ferry, island restaurants, Bald Head Island Club, Old Baldy, and shopping. Our home is approximately 3 minutes from the Ferry terminal, so you are close to Eb & Flo restaurant and to the River Pilot Café for some excellent dining experiences in the marina. Our home is a 3 minute golf cart ride to South Beach and roughly a 10 minute golf cart ride to the East Beach. The Bald Head Island Club and all of its amenities are approximately five short minutes from our home. When you rent our home, we provide use of our 4 passenger golf cart included with the rental. We will also make a temporary Sports membership to the Bald Head Island Club available to you. This allows you to use the club and all of its amenities; however, you must pay greens fees to pay golf. The Bald Head Island Club offers swimming, croquet, golf, tennis, beach volleyball, a playground, and dining. Stay with us and we will give you the keys to fun and relaxation!
