We've been visiting Bald Head Island for over 15 years and can't think of anyplace we like better. When you leave your car on the mainland and hop onto the ferry, you feel the stresses of work and home slip away. Our two labs can never get enough of running on the beach. But they also love sitting in the golf cart as we drive to and from the stores and restaurants. We love to sit by the pool at the clubs or play Bocci Ball on the beach. We live in Wilmington and get over as often as we can.

Why Michael chose Cape Fear Station
We believe we have one of the cleanest and well kept properties on the island and want to share its comforts with your family. It's location is terrific since it's in Cape Fear Station, just a minute or so from East Beach, and a short walk to Turtle Central and the Cape Fear Village Green. So it's particularly good for families.
What makes this House unique
We love to cook and we have tried to accommodate our kitchen with lots of items you might need. In fact, many of our guests comment on it!

Beautiful, Clean Home!
We had a wonderful trip to Bald Head Island earlier this month! This house was perfect for us. It has everything you need to be comfortable, was very clean when we arrived, and is in an awesome location. We were so happy to find such a nice home that accepted dogs. It was a treat to have our pup with us! The kitchen and dining room were great - large, open, and very functional. The large bedrooms upstairs were perfect for my husband and I and our two kids. My mom stayed in the crofter, which was a nice respite for her when she needed her own space. :) Also, the golf carts and bikes came in very handy. We enjoyed the Shoals Club, the BHI Conservancy programs, and the East Beach, which are all very close to this house. My kids were ready to "live here forever!"
Our favorite so far!
We've been visiting and renting on the island for 9 years now and this was by far our favorite house! The owner was extremely responsive and we've never had any other owner or rental company check in on us like he did via email and text. The house was clean, very well appointed and the furniture was all in great shape and very comfortable. The location was walkable/bikeable to the beach and Turtle Central/BHI Conservancy/Mike's Bites :-) Thanks for a great week!
Another great BHI and Salty Dog experience!
This is our 3rd year staying at Salty Dog and, once again, it was a great stay. The house is always clean and fresh feeling, the kitchen is (still!) well appointed and Michael is always friendly, accommodating, and easy to get in touch with if issues arise. Definitely a great stay!
Great Island - Terrific house
Many thanks to the owners of this wonderful property. The communication from the start was top notch and totally professional. You would think you were working with a full time management firm.
The house is in a terrific location and it it well equipped and comfortable.
And of course - Bald Head is just terrific place for family vacation.
Thank you for your feedback. We always appreciate feedback that can help us improve our property and the rental experience. It also lets future guests feel comfortable with renting with us.
Nicely appointed, well equipped comfortable house. It is situated on a quiet street with very easy access to the beach, Shoal's Club and Conservancy. The owner is quite attentive. This was as fourth rental on BHI and was clearly our favorite. We would gladly return in the future.
Thank you so much for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your vacation and look forward to your return. We strive to make things as perfect as possible.

Perfect Vacation Getaway!!
This was our second year staying at the Salty Dog and it is absolutely perfect! The location is great - just 2 minutes on foot or golf cart to the beach. The house has everything you could possibly need: the beds are super comfy and it's on a lovely, quiet street. The beach chairs, bikes and golf carts are all great quality. Michael is wonderful to deal with and takes care of anything that you need immediately. Best of all we could bring our yellow lab Lily and she loved her daily trips to the beach - the outdoor shower is perfect for cleaning dogs and dirty little boys! Thanks for another great vacation, we will most definitely be back!
