One of the loveliest places on the East Coast (maybe anywhere!), Bald Head Island offers sun, sea, beach, biking, golfing, walking trails and the maritime forest. Our home, a short tram or golf cart ride from the ferry terminal, has views of all the island has to offer.
You will see sweeping, panoramic views of South Beach and the Atlantic Ocean from the adirondacks on the upper deck, while the lower, fully shaded porch offers peeks of the Atlantic as well as a porch swing and rocking chairs perfect for spending time with a book, glass of tea or afternoon cocktail. Just as special is the home’s large back porch, where you will enjoy the immaculate landscape of the Bald Head Island Club golf course as well as a large inland lagoon, an attractive gathering spot for the many birds of the island.
Walk to the beach in less than two minutes (or drive for 30 seconds on your golf cart and leave it at the cart parking at the beach access). Also, only a quick walk or cart drive away is the Bald Head Island Club,which offers pool facilities, tennis, golf, a large children’s playground and splash pad as well casual and upscale dining options.
Set up on a reverse floor plan to maximize ocean and golf course views, this five bedroom home away from home is perfect for large and extended families or friends traveling together. Is is also ideal for groups looking for a golf weekend or a girls’ trip away.
The upper level has an extra-large, open-concept living area. There is plenty of lounging space and a 55” Samsung 4k ultra HD Smart TV for sports and movie enthusiasts. In addition, there are indoor and outdoor dining spaces with a gas grill on the 3rd floor back deck. The kitchen has a full-sized pantry, cookware, dining service and cutlery for 12 or more, and all of the basics you will need for meals at home. Unlike some rental homes, we promise that you will find spices, sugar and cooking oil ready to use as well as coffee filters, paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags and dish detergent. We want you to enjoy your time relaxing and recharging, not buying items that are too bulky to bring or return home with you.
Downstairs there are four large bedrooms (1 king, 1 queen, 1 queen, 2 twin beds plus a stow-away twin), all with ensuite baths and ample closet space. There is also a “bunk room” (with an additional pull out twin) that is a favorite of children. Laundry is located on this level. In addition, the entryway foyer has become a favorite spot for lounging and has cable TV as well as a small seating area. We think you will find the spacious sleeping and storage options a particular plus of this home.
Sundancer has a large, fully functioning elevator. For those searching for accessibility, a unique feature of Sundancer is the wooden drive and walkway that allow wheelchairs or walkers to move safely up to the house to the elevator access. The elevator also makes moving luggage or groceries to the second or third floor a breeze.
Guests at Sundancer have access to bed linens, towels and beach towels. We also provide a Pack & Play and a high chair for families traveling with infants.
Outside, there are 4 and 6 passenger golf carts for your island adventures as well as bikes for various ages (little ones enjoy the quiet cul-de-sac in front of the house while older children and adults can head out for longer rides). There is also beach gear and a large outdoor shower for all of those sandy afternoons.
A Lifestyle/Sports Membership to the BHI Club is available for purchase during your stay, an option which provides access to the pools, dining, leisure and sports activities of the club. In addition, if traveling with preschool or school-age children (our specialty!), there are fantastic half-day camps at the Bald Head Island Club as well as the BHI Conservancy (where our boys do a camp every year). If you are interested, we are happy to share our experiences with you and provide you with the camps’ contact information.
The focus at Sundancer is relaxation and maximizing the time you get to spend with your family and friends (or a good book!) at the beach. As new owners (as of December 2017) with two small boys and a large extended family of our own, we want you to be in a space that feels comfortable and familiar. If there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable or a place that you are excited to return to again and again, let us know. We plan to make many improvements in the coming years, and we’d love to hear how others are experiencing the home.
You will have an on-island contact if any issue arises during your stay or if you just need a few island-related questions answered.
We hope that you enjoy your time on the island as much as we do. Trust us when we say that pictures can never capture all that is special about this special place. You will have to come and experience it for yourself!
