About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
The spacious living room has two sofas and a 32” flatscreen TV/DVD and offers golf course and forest views. The dining room seats eight, and the fully-equipped kitchen with all NEW appliances in 2015, ½ bath, laundry room, and porch complete the first floor.
Enjoy the central location of Island Palms Cottage on a huge corner lot overlooking the 5th green. Our 1,700+ sq ft 2-story home is tastefully-decorated with a bright and airy floor plan and ALL hardwood floors, plus plenty of outdoor living space. After a day at the beach, kayaking in the marsh, or biking the island trails, you can relax on our 300 sq ft wrap-around screened porch, taking in the tranquility of the maritime forest of sable palms and majestic live oaks draped in Spanish moss.
Island Palms Cottage is just a 5-minute cart or bike ride to the beach, Harbor, Maritime Market and Shops at Maritime Way, Creek Access, Old Baldy Lighthouse, and Wildlife Overlook.
Amenities include a 6-seat golf cart, sheets/bedding, bath and beach towels, beach chairs/toys, outdoor shower, charcoal grill, cable, WiFi, games, DVDs, book swap, and starter paper products/toiletries. The cleaning fee is included in rate.
During the summer season, weekly rentals are Sunday to Sunday. Check-in time is 3 pm, and checkout is 10 am. A $300 deposit reserves your vacation with final payment due 45 days before check-in.

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We first visited Bald Head Island in 1994 and have been coming back every year to this peaceful paradise. We look forward to the relaxed atmosphere of BHI and all of the outdoor activities. In addition to the beach, we enjoy biking, running, kayaking, fishing, and stand up paddleboarding in the creeks. Our kids love surfing on East Beach. Here is our son paddleboarding in the marsh over New Years.
Why the Owner Chose Bald Head Island, NC, USA:
We purchased our vacation home in October 2009 and are thrilled that it has given us so many more opportunities to expolore this beautiful island. We found that we were coming back so regularly and that we always hated to leave the island. The ferry is such a short drive from the Triangle and, once we step aboard, we immediately relax and go into vacation mode -- whether we are going for a week or a weekend.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love being outdoors at BHI and find that, whether we are traveling the island by golf cart, bike, foot, or kayak, it is much more fun than being in a car for a beach vacation. Having access to bikes and kayaks is also very important to us, and we want our guests to know that they are available for their use at no extra charge. The bikes aren't fancy but, having them including in the rental, will save you a bundle on your vacation. It is also important to us to be able to arrive early and stay late in the day and, when available, we offer this to you as well.
