Fish Tale is the home on Bald Head that you will rent year after year. Just ask our guests! Walk through the front door, take in the sweeping views of the Atlantic from almost every window, and relax instantly on the huge sofa in the wide open floor plan. You will soon be sharing your own 'Fish Tales' with friends about your adventures on Bald Head Island.
Bald Head Island Club membership included in rental price. Shoals Club available at an additional fee.
This home is perfect for two-three families or 3 couples, with 2 master suites (king beds), a queen bedroom, and a bunk room with full twin bunks, built in bunks suitable for teens and younger (not quite twin size mattress) and full size crib. Additional sleeping is available on the pull out in the sunroom and in the second full size crib stored in the master suite. Dining in? No problem! The kitchen is very well stocked (many families say they will always rent for Thanksgiving due to many pots, pans, appliances, serving ware, etc). Add to that a large round dining table that easily seats up to 10 with spectacular views of the ocean!
The open floor plan with a soaring ceiling makes living in Fish Tale most enjoyable. The living area is open to the kitchen, dining area, and sunroom. Although it is open, the bedrooms are tucked privately off the open living area. There are also several sitting areas to read, puzzle, enjoy coffee, or just admire the view. The most popular places to relax however, are the sunroom to view the sunrise and the deck to soak in the sunset. Just gorgeous!
Fish Tale truly has something for everyone. We provide free Wi-Fi and unlimited long distance. There are TVs in every room except the bunk room. The living area TV also has a DVD, XM Radio, and stereo. Although this is not a new home, it sure has fun, updated furnishings and linens. All guests comment on the comfortable and high quality beds, pillows, and linens.
We are extremely kid and beach friendly! Home includes a high chair, booster chair, 2 full cribs, pack and play, toys, books, bikes and beach and pool toys and floats/boards. You will enjoy the quality beach chairs, beach towels, beach bags, and private outdoor shower. Our goal is to be sure all amenities are in working order and ready for you! We provide access to one double kayak as well. Let the exploring begin!!
Fish Tale is conveniently located on South Beach just steps from a beach access. We are close to the Bald Head Island Club, the Maritime Market, and a short drive to the Shoals Club. Two 4-seater golf carts are available for your use. A full departure clean is included in your rate.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Kristin and Peter live in Charlottesville, Virginia with their 3 boys - Peyton, Simon and Oliver. We love this college town and the beautiful mountains, but we treasure our time on Bald Head Island! We especially love introducing BHI to our friends and family.
Why the Owner Chose Bald Head Island, NC, USA:
We were married in the Bald Head chapel in 2000. We had discovered the island only months before. Once we visited, we were hooked and knew we would one day love to own a home here. Bald Head is truly a unique environment and such a well preserved barrier island. So, in 2003 we pulled the plug and bought a home in the forest. We were sure we would keep it forever. Then we had our first child and realized how much MORE space children require! So we moved into Fish Tale in 2005 and plan to enjoy all it has to offer for many years.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are 2 things that our guests always comment on regarding Fish Tale. First - the view is spectacular. No, we are not on the sand, but we have unobstructed views of the ocean with only one home in our line of sight. As a result, you are forced to relax the minute you step in the home and take in the beautiful panoramic ocean view. Second - the open floor plan makes group living very comfortable. There are ample seating and common areas, but plenty of quieter spaces for privacy. It really 'works' for a group.
