Settle into the beautiful cottage of “Sundance @ Bald Head Island” while you enjoy the unique character, unspoiled beaches and relaxed pace of the island.
Sundance is a lovingly cared-for cottage from which you can quickly access the beach, explore the island or simply relax on the porch in a rocking chair and watch the sunset. This cottage is located at 22 Skye Crescent in the popular Flora’s Bluff area on the South Beach of Bald Head Island. This location is about half way between the Bald Head Island Country Club and the Shoal's Club. Nestled on one of the highest points of the island, you are treated to ocean views from both levels of the cottage, with two porches facing the ocean. Being located high on the dune ridge, you will experience incredible views of the sunset in the front of the cottage (over the Atlantic Ocean) and the sunrise at the back of the cottage (over the semi-tropical Maritime Forest). Beach access is less than 2 minutes by foot or by a short golf cart ride.
The cottage has 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths (6 people max occupancy) in a traditional two-story layout. On the first floor, you will find an open floor plan with a well equipped kitchen, a dining area, a living room area, a half bathroom, and a full sized washer/dryer enclave. Off of the living area there is a covered porch directly facing the ocean. The living area has a sectional with a sofa sleeper (queen). Upstairs you will find two bedrooms, both with full bathrooms and ample closets. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and a deck facing the ocean. This is a beautiful spot to watch the sunset and to star gaze on a clear night. The second bedroom has two queen-sized beds and a view overlooking the canopy of the maritime forest. The cottage includes a portable crib, a high chair and many items for children. Bed linens, bath linens and cleaning are included in your rental fees.
One of many treasures of the island is the “golf cart only” transportation policy, which creates a slower pace and makes your stay feel longer and more relaxing. You begin your visit to Bald Head Island with a 30 minute ferry ride, leaving your vehicle on the mainland. Upon arrival to the island, you are taken to the cottage via a tram service. Once settled in, you can explore the beautiful island using the golf carts or the beach bikes that are included with the cottage. We provide two golf carts (many smaller cottages provide only one.)
In addition to fourteen miles of beautiful beaches, Bald Head Island offers unique environmental diversity including marshland and the semi-tropical maritime forest. The marsh and forest environments have walking trails. There are seasonal and nature activities offered throughout the year by the Bald Head Island Conservancy. The Old Baldy Lighthouse is a landmark not to be missed!
Temporary membership to the Bald Head Island Country Club is include in the base rental rate and you have the option to purchase a temporary membership to the Shoals Club. Temporary memberships are prearranged for your pick up on the island. Both clubs offer fine dining and recreation events & programs are offered during the summer and major holidays. The option to golf at the George Cobb-designed 18-hole Golf Course at the Bald Head Island Club is included with your temporary membership but will require additional greens fees. In addition to the clubs, there is a grocery and café at the Maritime Marketplace, quaint stores and some restaurants in the harbor area.
The cottage is often described as peaceful and happy. Enjoy a fabulous vacation in this lovely cottage!
