About Mary Strickland, Owner

We are the Strickland's. High school sweethearts that grew up in Raleigh. After graduating from NCSU we both left the state and have always wanted a little slice of paradise.

Mary Strickland, Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why Mary Strickland, Owner chose Cape Fear Station

BHI is a true escape like no other. The decompression starts with the ferry ride. There are few places to really get away. We love the calmness the island. The golf carts and bikes are an easy way to get around the island. Lack of traffic is just what makes the BHI so dynamic.

What makes this house unique

Our goal is to make this vacation place our home away from home. We look forward to sharing it with all of our vacationers and providing a place for you to make memories. We added an extrta golf cart so everyone can go where they want when they want.

Perfect spot for our girls' weekend

  • 5 of 5

Four long-time friends spent a lovely time in this comfortable and well-appointed getaway close to the east end of the island. The location is nicely, but not too, secluded and close to beaches and the Shoals Club. Wonderful little front porch with rockers. Ideal for a small family or group gathering such as ours. The owner communicated very well, and there were no surprises. We will be back!

Memorial Day weekend on Bald Head

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Three of us stayed there for the Badwater Cape Fear race in March, and we can't say enough about it. Convenient access to the beach and on a quiet part of the island. The owner was great to work with and the property and adjacent cottage over the garage were all very nice. I would definitely come back and bring my family!

BHI for Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

We were looking to get out to the beach on short notice for the kids' Spring Break and saw the Turtle Tree House was available. My inquiry led to a very quick response from the owner, who was very accommodating with our tight time frame. The house was perfect for us - 2 adults with 2 teens. Location-wise, the house is in a quiet part of the island near the East Beach and Shoal's Club. It is very well equipped, well maintained, and very clean. My son (16) loved staying in the crofter. Cell phone service was a little spotty in the house but we didn't go to the beach to chat and text. We had a great time that was only enhanced by the comfort of the house. We would definitely consider staying there again in the future and recommend to others.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family was looking for a place to RELAX and REALLY enjoy the beach...we found it on Bald Head Island at Turtle House! The home was perfect! Comfortable! Clean! Quiet! Everything you needed was there! Great location on the East end only 2-3 blocks from the beach and nestled in a tropical paradise. Having the golf carts and bicycles available was fantastic. Our week went by way too fast! The owners were so helpful in providing advice on everything from the ferry ride to surf rentals to .... Thank you! We have passed your VRBO # on to several friends.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at three different places on BHI now and like this one the best! The home is as described, no surprises, which was nice. Having 2 golf carts and 4 bikes was a big plus for us. We have 2 teenage daughters and they enjoyed themselves so much! We like staying in the forest. It feels like a mountain and beach vacation all in one. The house is set back from the road and that was nice. So nice and quiet there. The beds (and pillows) were very comfortable. Thank you Mary for letting us use your beautiful home.
