Welcome to 'Mare Tranquillitatis', our Sea of Tranquility. Formerly known as 'Serenity House', the house has been completely refreshed and updated to provide an upscale yet comfortable vacation environment for you and your family. Enjoy serene tranquility and utmost privacy amidst the live oak and palmetto trees in Bald Head's pristine Maritime Forest, but only a short golf cart ride from the deep-water marina, unspoiled beaches, championship golf, gourmet market and all of this cape island's unique amenities. The home's pastel colors, beaded board wainscoting and hardwood floors are reminiscent of classic seaside cottages, but the new chef's kitchen--featuring stainless appliances, quartz counter tops and sea glass tile--speaks to modern convenience. Guests will enjoy membership privileges at The Shoals Club, an outstanding private beach club located at the tip of Cape Fear. Privileges at The Bald Head Island Club are also available for a nominal additional charge. One 4-person cart included.
The Shoals Club: Temporary membership privileges at The Shoals Club are extended to all Mare Tranquillitatis guests and are included in the rental price. The Shoals Club sits at the tip of Cape Fear, where East and South Beaches meet, and affords panoramic ocean views. It features a large main pool, children's pool and a wooden boardwalk over the dunes to the wide beach. Children's activities are often offered around the pool. Towel service is provided at the pool and beach chairs and umbrellas are provided on the beach. The 10,000 sq. ft. clubhouse has a dining room featuring innovative cuisine made from local ingredients, a fitness center, locker rooms and wraparound porches from which you can watch the sun both rise and set over the ocean. In addition, there is a bar and casual restaurant poolside.
The Bald Head Island Club: Temporary membership privileges at The Bald Head Island Club are available for a nominal additional fee. The Bald Head Island Club’s championship 18-hole golf course wraps 6,855 yards (73.8/137) around freshwater lagoons, through a spectacular maritime forest and across dunes overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Other BHI Club amenities include outstanding formal and casual dining, four hard-surface tennis courts located close enough to the ocean to hear the surf, a 25-meter swimming pool positioned just across a lagoon from the Atlantic Ocean with its own bar and casual eatery, and regulation greenswards providing a picture-perfect venue for the genteel sport of croquet. What’s more, the recent addition of a well-equipped fitness center allows you to stick to your exercise regimen in climate-controlled comfort.
