About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Settle into the beautiful cottage of “Sundance at 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 in the popular Flora’s Bluff area on the South Beach of Bald Head Island. 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 two full-sized couches, one of which is 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 25 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 a golf cart or the beach bikes that are included with the cottage.

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 a walking trail. 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 one of the two clubs on the island - the Shoals Club or the Bald Head Island Club - is included in the rental rate. Guests may chose which club is included and may add a temporary membership for the second club for an additional fee. Temporary memberships will be prearranged for your pick up on the island. Both clubs offer fine dining throughout the year. 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 and quaint stores.

The cottage is often described as peaceful and happy. Enjoy a fabulous vacation in this lovely cottage!

My husband and I vacation on BHI every year, recently completing our six year. We have stayed in many houses in different locations on the island. This was our first time at Sundance. The house was awesome! Not only was the home clean, but everything was neatly kept and had anything you could ask for on a week away from home. The location was awesome as you could see the ocean from both balconies. The kitchen was great and the cottage even has a very nice grill for making your steaks from the Maritime market! I would recommend this cottage to anyone from a couple looking to just get away or a family looking for some beach time! The owners of this home were wonderful to deal with. We will absolutely be back!

My family had an awesome time at Bald Head Island and the house was perfect for us. The cottage sits up on a hill so my wife enjoyed drinking her coffee overlooking the ocean every morning and we also enjoyed having a drink on the balcony in the evening while enjoying the beautiful weather. Our boys loved building sand castles and playing in the water on South Beach which is a a very short walk or even quicker golf cart ride, and taking a golf cart rides down to East Beach to ride the HUGE waves. Two golf carts made it very easy to get around the island. The place is equipped with everything you can think of to make the time even more enjoyable; bikes, beach chairs, beach toys, boogie boards, board games, video games, skooters, etc. We were also greeted with a welcoming gift that was a very nice touch. Thank you very much for making us feel so welcome in your home.

A Wonderful Way to Experience BHI!

  • 5 of 5

My family has just returned from a week at BHI, staying at Sundance. A few months ago, when selecting a home for us to rent, I was encouraged by the description and reviews. Now that we have been there, I am happy to report they are all true!! Sundance was such an easy walk to the beach, has wonderful views, is stocked with everything you can think of and most of what you didn't think of! We happily left so many things at home that we usually pack into tubs and haul with us! Additionally, the homeowners are prompt and thorough with their communication...the welcome/info packet is full of information that makes it easy to plan for your vacation. The welcome gift at the home was so thoughtful and useful! Thank you, Sue Ellen and John, for sharing your home and making it so easy to enjoy all that BHI has to offer.

Exceptional Rental

  • 5 of 5

Sue Ellen & John

We wanted to let you both know how much we enjoyed your home. We have rented many times in the past on BHI and other locations, but without question our experience with you is at the top of the list.

The welcome package was very complete and informative, the home was outfitted perfectly. There was nothing that we needed and could not easily find. Having two golf carts is a huge advantage, along with all of the beach chairs, bikes, toys etc. The kitchen was full of utensils making meal preparation as easy as being at home.

We rent homes and condos 4 to 5 times a year, and without question you all have it figured out.

Thank you, we look forward to staying with you all again soon.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I go to BHI about two or three times per year and usually stay at a different house each visit. This one was perfect for one or two couples, since it had two golf carts. It was well equipped with everything you need for a getaway. The two porches were great and the views were amazing. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. This is definitely one of our favorite rentals on the island and I cannot wait to return.
