About the property

"By the Sea" is our island paradise! We are located just steps away from the beach! Our recently remodeled home is comprised of 3 comfortable bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The private master, king suite is located separately upstairs with its own private deck. It is perfect for your morning cup of coffee over looking the serene ocean or your glass of wine watching the sunset. The master bath is also perfect for relaxation with the jetted tub or walk in shower. We have two bedrooms downstairs adjoined by a shared bathroom. The first guest bedroom has a queen plus a twin trundle. The second guest bedroom has a queen, set of bunk beds and a twin trundle. Our home sleeps a total of 10 people. The living room, kitchen, dining and half bath are also located downstairs. We have a fully stocked kitchen and there is plenty of family gathering time with our open floor plan. If outside space is more your thing we have a spacious wrap around porch. Did we mention the view?? :) We have plenty of space for your family to relax and enjoy the outdoors along with surround sound inside and outside. As far as cruising around the island we have a 4 and a 6 passenger golf cart along with bikes. There is also plenty of beach gear, beach chairs as well as a propane and charcoal grill. We have access to both the BHI and the Shoals Club, which may be purchased. We hope you may be our guest "By the Sea"!

Great place and location on island

  • 5 of 5

Steps to the beach, inside updated very nicely with beach pottery barn style. Comfy beds and all the amenities. Golf carts were a huge plus, the 6 seater was pure luxury.

Mary and owners great too with communication and insight for the island

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything. We loved having our morning coffee on the master bedroom porch and really appreciate the owner-supplied Keurig coffees. Just a few steps from the beach with lots of beach toys and chairs. Great bikes for everyone and a perfect location to ride all over the island. our kids like riding to the store for ice cream. We enjoyed the wrap round porch with a hammock and futon for afternoon napping or watching the stars at night. Will definitely stay here again.

Nicest place on Bald Head Island. We could tell that someone really put some time and effort to make it comfortable for guests. Although the weather was less than perfect, we were fine with hanging out in between showers watching the big screen and enjoying a warm cup of coffee supplied by the house. The fishing was great, poles at the house were supplied, and my son and I caught a mess of trout and small blues. The views were excellent, offering great sunrise and sunset views from the rocking chairs on the wrap around porch. The house supplied 2 golf carts, and we got several comments on one of them that had oversized tires and looked like a 4x4 which my son thought was the best one on the beach! Access to the beach is right there at the house, so taking those long walks on the beach was too easy to access. All and all it was an excellent experience for a beach front house. The only bad things were: A) my son now wants a bunk bed B) our time ran out and we had to leave. We hope to return one day, and soon!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at our home. One of our favorite things to do is sit on the porch to enjoy the waves along with our morning coffee. And our kids love the bunk beds as well. They call the yellow golf cart with the oversized tires the MONSTER TRUCK! We'll be sure to continue to supply the coffee so hope you'll be able to return to BHI and "By the Sea" again soon.
