About Owner / Property Manager

We have been visiting Bald Head Island for 20 years. The combination of natural beauty, pristine beaches, remote location, makes you feel like you are far from the madding crowd. After renting for many years, this year we decided to buy the cottage that we fell in love with. We are long time North Carolina residents and have found this to be the ultimate coastal retreat!!

Owner / Property Manager purchased this cottage in 2017

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Cape Fear Station

As the pictures show, this home has been lightly used and our favorite East Beach is just minutes away. In addition, the Shoals Club, which enjoys a 270 degree panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean has 2 swimming pools, 3 restaurants, beach chairs, and umbrellas. A temporary membership is available for guests. We love the fact that you can only explore the island by golf cart and bicycle. There are no personal cars allowed on the island. The minute we get on the ferry we are transported to island life.

What makes this cottage unique

On the island activities include kayaking, biking, fishing, sailing, birding, exploring, shelling, and swimming. The island consists of over 10,000acres of salt marsh and 180 acres of protected Maritime Forest. The Bald Island Conservancy has a turtle watch and nesting program open to the public, just down the street (2 minutes). An average of 40 sea turtle nests erupt during the summer months with over 120 baby turtles each. It's a beautiful island paradise just minutes from historic Southport - which by the way is also a lovely town to tour.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Sundance Cottage was the ideal retreat for our family of four. The size and layout fit us perfectly. My daughter had her private "suite" in the lower level with it's queen size bed and full bathroom and my son stayed with my husband and me in the upper level Master Suite. The trundle bed in it's nook was perfect for him. And the king bed, my husband commented, might have been even more comfortable than our bed at home! The main level was smartly laid out and outfitted. The whole home was neat as a pin! What my husband and I truly appreciated about the home was the quality materials used in the construction of the home--solid core doors, shiplap and beadboard on the walls and ceilings, etc. While it may not matter to some, we appreciate fine details as they afford one a feeling of luxury and value. Additionally, virtually everything you might need to make your stay on Bald Head was thought of (golf cart, bikes, boogie boards, sand toys, fishing poles, etc.). The location also can't be beat. Your a minutes golf cart ride or bike ride to the Shoals Club, East or South Beach and to the market. Lastly, my praises go out to Barbara and Dale. We had a couple of special requests that they were kind enough to accommodate and were very responsive in answering our questions. Needless to say, we will definitely be staying at Sundance Cottage in the future!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautiful and perfect for our family of four. The house was well equipped. WiFi and cable TV worked without any hiccups. Easy access to the beach and a well maintained 6 seater golf cart. We enjoyed our stay at Sundance cottage! Thank you for letting us stay at your house!

Great stay and house

  • 5 of 5

Really pleased with the house- very cute and clean. Had several beach chairs which all seemed to be new and two beach umbrellas- which were easy to use. Good quality boogie boards and a skim board but we didn’t try that one out. Many bikes to choose from and we used daily

Walked to turtle central for turtle trot and later for beer and wine tasting

We have been going to bald head for many years and this was a great house!

Beach find!

  • 5 of 5

We love Bald Head and are always excited to find a great rental. This house was very clean, fresh and beachy - in a stylish and updated way! It was perfect for a small family or two couples. The beds were comfortable, bathrooms very nice and the amenities (umbrellas, beach chairs, bikes, boogie boards, etc) were plentiful. Cape Fear station is our favorite location to rent on the island. We hope to rent Sundance Cottage again and the owners couldn't have been more responsive and welcoming. Take me back to Bald Head!!!

A wonderful home for a fun week at BHI.

  • 4 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay at BHI. The actual location was very convenient to Shoals Club especially enjoyed by all. The home itself was very clean, beautifully decorated, and had so many items as a bonus...including several bikes, boogie boards, fishing poles, chairs and unbrellas. The golf cart was also wonderful with the 6 seats and very reliable in function. The one and only drawback is that we did not realize that there was not an actual oven. The microwave does convert to an oven, but is lengthy in time to heat up...and burned some of the food cooked. If there were an oven...5 plus stars would have been given. The home was beautiful, peaceful, and we would definitely stay again. Many thanks for a wonderful vacation.

Wonderful long weekend

  • 5 of 5

Spent a great long weekend and celebrated Mother's Day in this lovely place. Comfortable beds, good quality towels, furniture and decoration. The kitchen is fully stock. Close to the beach. Golf cart rides smooth. The floor carpet is a little slippery. Overall, it's a great choice.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you enjoyed your weekend and could take an extra day to stay even longer! Yes, we love to keep the house well stocked and ready for guests. We have just purchased 2 new mats to put under rugs when we return next week. We hope you can come again- the turtles are just beginning to make their nests:)
