BHI Villa 43 'A La Mer' - Bald Head Island, North Carolina 28461 (Sleeps 6 max)

BHI Villa 43 has a panoramic view of the ocean from the LIVING/DINING/KITCHEN GREAT ROOM and from one of the master bedrooms. The view is spectacular. Sit on the sofa and watch the dolphins frolic in the water and patrol the ocean's edge. The sunsets are gorgeous!

Villa 43 is ideal and comfortable for 3 couples but works great for families as well. The villa has one master - THE VIEW BR with a king bed/en-suite bathroom - oversized shower; a second master - THE WAVE BR with a split King bed (separates to form 2 XL twins) /en-suite bathroom - oversized shower; a third master - THE LOFT BR with a king bed/en-suite bathroom and a deck overlooking the ocean. All 3 bathrooms have been renovated in 2015/2016.

The open floor plan in the Kitchen/Dining/Living great room is comfortable and roomy. It allows everyone to socialize in the newly renovated kitchen which has an oversized refrigerator and quartz countertops,

Our Villa is in a prime location on Bald Head Island. Only 1 mile from the ferry landing, we are only steps away from both the beach access and the Bald Head Island Club where golf, croquet, the pool, fitness center, children's' playground and dining is available. Our villa is well situated in the complex with a large lawn both behind and to the side of the villa providing lots of space to play ball and enjoy a gathering around the BBQ.

To get around the island, two golf carts are available on site. Both have enclosures to protect you from the rain which occasionally falls on Bald Head Island.

Club membership to the Bald Head Island Club is now included in the rental price. Our Villa is one of the very few with privileges at the Shoals Club - a truly exquisite venue for dining, entertainment, pool and taking in the 'Wild Side' of Frying Pan Shoals. Temporary membership at the Shoals Club can be purchased separately.

Bald Head Island is on one of North Carolina's southernmost cape islands - Cape Fear. Bald Head Island is accessible only by passenger ferry or private boat. With no cars and no crowds, Bald Head Island preserves the natural beauty and stress-free lifestyle of a simpler time. The island is blessed with 14 miles of pristine beaches, thousands of acres of protected salt marshes, and a spectacular expanse of maritime forest. These qualities make Bald Head Island a one-of-a-kind destination.

Bald Head Island beaches are legendary. North beach, frequently called 'Potato Beach' faces the Cape Fear River and the Creek Access. The water is brackish and there is no surf. Perfect for small children! West Beach runs along the Cape Fear River where it joins the ocean. From here, you get the best views of the cargo ships sailing to Wilmington. The beaches at both South Beach and East Beach are extensive. When the surf is up on South Beach, East Beach is usually calm and vice versa. One can always 'catch a wave' on Bald Head. With more than 50+ beach accesses on Bald Head, one can find 'the perfect spot'!

Access to Bald Head during peak season is in great demand! Call the ferry service at least 2 weeks ahead to secure your place on the ferry and the shuttle to the villa. For reservations call 910 457 5003 and inquire about the ferry and Parking Fees.

About Camille Goulet

We love Bald Head and think that you and your family will love it too. Going to Bald Head is like sailing back in time. An earlier day when life was less complicated and one could enjoy the simple pleasures in life.

Camille Goulet purchased this house in 2001

Why Camille Goulet chose Bald Head Island

We chose Bald Head because we were looking for a 'getaway' from our busy life in NYC. We wanted a place which would appeal to both young and older people as well. Bald Head Island fit the bill.

What makes this house unique

If you love nature, Bald Head Island is for you. Spend the days enjoying the beach, viewing the birds and the evenings gazing at the stars or simply sitting on the beach waiting for a turtle nest to 'boil'. Lots to enjoy on Bald Head.

Great Times

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful week at villa 43. We are 2 couples and all enjoyed the property, the view’s and ocean breeze’s are excellent. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could need including new appliances. The villa is well furnished with confortable furniture and bedding. Nice linens and towels are also provided, throughout the home is in excellent condition. Golf carts worked great and were a nice change for transportation. When we arrived we had a couple of questions, how to access the wi-fi and later about the Direct TV. Mr. Goulet responded within a few minuet's each time.The BHI club is a short walk and has an excellent golf course. Also they have 3 professional croquet courses, a must play & great fun for all, and a large heated pool. Our meals at the restaurant's were excellent and the top level view from Peli’s is great.Vacationing at Villa 43 allows you to purchase a temporary membership to the Sholes Club. We all loved the service their. It’s restaurants were excellent as well and the beach service is so convenient, when you arrive they will set up beach umbrellas and chairs for you. They provide towels as well. Thanks to the Goulet’s for a excellent experience!

Lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples visiting the island for a wedding. We found your home to be so well done, clean, freshly remodeled and convenient. Everything we needed was available for us. The beds were wonderful with nice linens and comfy pillows. All new appliances and state of the art facilities completed the experience. The views were beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!

Excellent accommodations and rental experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa 43. The Villa is very nice- clean and well maintained. The kitchen is is very nice. We enjoyed sitting on the balconies and viewing the beach. The owners were very responsive when we had some questions. At the end of our stay, we left behind an important item, and the owner was very helpful and accommodating in working with us and the cleaning company to return the item to us.

The location is great- convenient to the beach and Bald Head Island Club. We would definitely rent here again!
