Tastefully decorated, thoughtfully designed, and nestled in the woods in Cape Fear Station, Time Together is a three bedroom home (one bedroom is in the private crofter) with three and a half baths. Each bedroom has a full ensuite bath. Although in the woods, the house has plenty of windows which allow the sun to shine in throughout the day and you can hear the surf in the distance.

Just minutes from East Beach, the Commons (lovely park), and Bald Head Island Conservancy, you’ll find Time Together. Enter through the white picket fence and pass the garage with outside shower and find yourself in a wooded paradise. Outdoor decking outfitted with a new gas grill leads you to the back screened in porch. Enjoy al fresco dining and comfortable seating on the porch.

Through the porch, you will enter the newly renovated kitchen to the left with a dining table with window seating (seats 7) to the right. Pass the built-in shelves with books and games and a half bath, and the large living area is straight ahead. Comfortable furniture makes this common area the perfect place to catch up on your day or unwind in front of the large flat screen TV. A Bose speaker is available to plug in your phone or computer to enjoy your tunes.

On the other side of the living room is a door to the rocking chair front porch which overlooks the neighborhood boardwalk path.

Upstairs, the master bedroom features a queen bed, large closet, flat screen TV and full bath with shower/tub combo. Across the hall, is the twin bedroom featuring two single beds (one with trundle, as well), two closets, flat screen tv and a full bathroom with shower.

A washer and dryer are built into the hall with room for folding and towel storage.

The crofter, perfect for in-laws or teens who want privacy, is housed above the garage. It features a queen-sized bed, full bath with shower and a flat-screen TV. It also has a Bose speaker for your music device.

Time Together provides two new adult beach bikes, one kid's bike and two single person kayaks. (The kayaks are stored by the creek). Two golf carts (six-seater and four-seater) will be your mode of transport around the island.

The house has a new pack n' play and high chair. Beach gear and towels are also supplied.

Your rental comes with a free temporary membership to the Bald Head Island Club. If you’d like membership to both clubs, you will be able to purchase a temporary membership to the Shoals Club (approx $250/wk - high season).

About Edie Surratt

Our family has been coming to Bald Head Island with friends for years. Now that our girls are young adults, we decided to purchase a place on the Island where we could spend "Time Together." We live in Davidson, NC and enjoy travel, golf, hiking, and reading.

Edie is the Property Manager for two other VRBO rentals:

Bald Head Island - Oceanfront, 5 bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths

Life on the Sea - VRBO # 751956

Bald Head Island - Oceanview, 4 bedrooms, 3 Baths

Racing to the Moon - VRBO # 1297861

Cherry Grove, SC - On the marsh, 5 bedrooms, private pool

RESTuary - VRBO #111859

Edie Surratt purchased this house in 2017

Why Edie Surratt chose Cape Fear Station

We chose this property for its well thought-out design and location. Being so close to the beach, yet in the forest, combine the best of what Bald Head has to offer.

What makes this house unique

With all the amenities and comforts of a larger home, Time Together provides an upscale experience for a reasonable price. We provide a temporary membership to the Bald Head Island Club (golf, pool, tennis, dining). If you'd like a temporary Shoals Club membership (beach access, pool, dining, gorgeous views), it is available for purchase.

A Magical Retreat

  • 5 of 5

As native North Carolinians, my husband and I had heard about Bald Head Island throughout the years but had never been. In retrospect, I think we were intimidated by leaving our car and taking a ferry. Turns out, it's a super easy and organized process - even fun. We traveled to Bald Head without a hitch, and when we arrived at Time Together, we were blown away. Nestled in a beautiful forest, Time Together makes it easy to get off the grid and just enjoy being with your family. Everything you need is right there - bikes, golf carts, Monopoly, coffee filters, kayaks and more. Both porches offer relaxing spots to unwind and listen to nature, and the beds in the home are super cozy. We could not have asked for a more perfect spring break experience for us and our children. We'll be back!

Get ready for a wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by a bottle of wine, which was a super sweet surprise. The house was extremely clean and in a great location. We were able to explore the beautiful island by bike and golf cart (both in great condition). I would highly recommend this home!

Couldn't be more perfect!

  • 5 of 5

If your family or friends are looking for a great place to get away from it all, this is it. Bald Head Island is amazing and this cottage offers the best place to take it all in. Took a relaxing girls trip and was able to make it a working holiday by answering emails a few hours each day (perfect connectivity!) then exploring the island and all it has to offer in the afternoon and evenings -- guilt-free! Runs and walks along the (miles and miles of) pristine beaches, bike rides, golf cart tours of the island, going to the healthclub or just kicking back and relaxing with a glass of wine on the front or back porch nestled back in the forest where it was cool and cozy. Everything was clean and comfortable -- hot and cold running everything, and having the "Crofter" meant I could be "apart" and "a part" of the activity -- offered the best mix of privacy and group fun. Sooo extra! Didn't get a chance to hit the little shops on the Island, but the grocery store has everything you could ever need, e.g. a great wine selection! Full disclosure -- I am a college friend of the owner, but wouldn't change a word about this amazing stay. Do yourself a favor and book today before this gem gets discovered!

Owner's Response: Hi Lori - Thanks so much for the thorough review! I'm so glad your girls' trip was a success and you were able to experience the beauty of BHI. The golf cart island tour is one of my favorite things to do! I'm glad you found the time to fit it in 😊?. We hope you'll be back soon! Edie & Doug

Shady Rest

  • 5 of 5

This house, near the East beach, is in a leafy, quiet area just a short walk from the Nature Conservancy. It has everything you could want to spend a week off the grid, chilling out among the trees on one of the two shady porches - or on the wide, clean beaches a short walk away. We appreciated the luxurious towels and linens, comfy living room and well-equipped kitchen that made it so easy to relax and unwind. The charged-up golf carts and bikes that were in great condition were convenient when we wanted to take off for the market or go sight-seeing. The owners provided clear information on arriving and departure, and provided maps of the island. In addition to the Conservancy (twice!) we went on hikes in the woods and enjoyed the Bald Head Island Club restaurant and fitness center. We would definitely choose this place again.

We want more Time!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is comfortable and stylish. It's a cozy cottage nestled in a heavily-wooded lot just a five minute walk to the beach. The real stars are the miles of wide, white sandy beaches which we had almost to ourselves, miles of trails, pocket parks and forests. Pristine clean! Great meals at Mojo's and BHI Club. The cottage has it all. Nicer linens than most hotels and a cool kitchen. Birdsong and the roar of the waves as we sat out on one of the two porches. Extreme attention to detail in the furnishing - we saw a baby monitor and iron, if you are inclined in that direction; two golf carts and/or bicycles to explore the island, and a great grill; even a library for beach reading and plenty of wine glasses. Can't wait to get back.
