About Christine Reed

Our family has enjoyed summers and Holidays on Bald Head Island for many years and we are now welcoming others to enjoy the splendid beauty of this secluded barrier island.

Christine Reed purchased this house in 2005

Why Christine Reed chose Flora's Bluff

The isolation and beauty of Bald Head drew us repeatedly to the island for weekly and weekend get-aways with our family. We eventually realized we wanted to spend more time here and purchased our home in 2005. The Flora's Bluff neighborhood is family friendly, safe and perfectly situated for easy access beach and the other amenities.

What makes this house unique

Once the ferry leaves Southport and heads for the island we felt that we could truly relax and enjoy time with family and friends. The natural beauty of the island (beach, marsh, forest) provided plenty of outside (non-screen time) activities for our young family.
