About Ronnie Shoe

Being life long residents of North Carolina, Bald Head Island provided us with an escape that is completely extraordinary compared to the average coastal community.

Ronnie Shoe purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Ronnie Shoe chose Cape Fear Station

One reason we purchased a home on Bald Head Island was to escape the crowds that populate so many other NC and SC beaches today. We found it to be an incredible place to relax and escape the stresses of the real world.

What makes this cottage unique

It is an incredibility quiet and tranquil place, not to mention the abundance of wildlife that's on the island.

Great Place Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

Our stay there was wonderful - perfect for our needs for this vacation! The house was comfortable and clean and even a minor issue with the golf cart was handled very quickly and was accommodating to our schedule (gave us a loaner right away!). The owner was very responsive! We will be back renting the same place as soon as we can!

Great Holiday Getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Spent a fun New Years weekend in this home. Plenty of space for two couples, decorated very nicely, and the owners went above and beyond to make sure everything was great during our stay. Bald Head on New Years Eve is a lot of fun with some great events New Years Eve as well.

Wonderful few days on Baldhead!

  • 5 of 5

Property was excellent, totally as advertised. The owners were very responsive before, during and after the stay. Not a place to cook or entertain for large groups, but otherwise a great place in a great location. Short walking distance to east and south beach, and to Shoals and Turtle Central. Golf cart was excellent also.

A slice of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We live on an Island but parts of it has become commercial so we love coming to BHI to just get away from the hustle bustle. This was our first time staying at Sumner's Crecent but it will not be our last. The owners were great and were extremely responsive. As an Engineer, my husband was In awe (so was I) of how well the place was constructed and how the owners made it appear so spacious. This home offers a forest feel but the beach is right around the corner!

Set up:

2 bed/2 bath three story home with a great layout. The first level has a queen bedroom with tv, full bath, garage, and washer/dryer area. The second floor has a comfy and spacious living room, Large TV, breakfast nook, etc. Also in this area is a kitchen with all appliances, fridge, dw, etc. on the third floor, there is a master room with king bed and bathroom. There is also a large tv. Out back, there is a common area with seats for nature watching and a grill. Golf cart worked great, direct tv was awesome, and we had no issue with wifi.


1. Bring extra pillows if you use a lot, or if you are traveling with a couple. Four were downstairs and two upstairs.

2. Bring a wine bottle and beer opener

3. Bring skin so soft bug spray, or purchase at the hardware store so you can enjoy the beach due to the bitting black flies.

4. Bring extra small wash cloths, or you can wash them. I used two a day and did not mind washing them daily as only three were provided.

5. Read the manual provided by the owner! Lol. So many questions we had about little things were answered in this informational binder.

6. To lock the door, you do not actually do it by turning the lock. Once you close the door, bring the handle all the way up until it clicks and it will be locked.

Place appropriate for:

1. Couples

2. Girls or guy trip

3. A small family

4. Two separate couples or families

***I would not recommend this for anyone who is unable to constantly walk up and down stairs. In my opinion, it would be hard for some elderly guests and or individuals who are disabled and need to use wheel chairs and or walkers.
