Property description

If you come to the beach to be AT THE BEACH then "Cool Change" is the place for you. This delightful two bedroom Carolina cottage gives you beach views from every room. And you are just steps away from the sand and surf.

This bright, airy home has been repainted and we have installed new carpet in the bedrooms. The hardwood floors and steps have just been refinished and look great!

The reverse floor plan features an upstairs living area that includes a generous-sized living room filled with comfortable stuffed chairs and sofa. Here you’ll find a brand new 40' flat screen HDTV with DVD and a CD player. The dining area and fully-equipped kitchen are adjacent and open on to a large ocean-facing balcony with a table and chairs for outdoor dining.

The two bedrooms are on the ground level. Each opens onto the downstairs covered porch. One features twin sized beds and is next to the hall full bath. The other has a new king sized bed and adjoins the master bath with double sinks and a large shower. The master bedroom also has its own flat screen TV.

'Cool Change’s front door opens on to a small private courtyard ringed by three homes. In the garage you’ll find a four-seat golf cart, beach chairs and beach toys. Linens and departure cleaning are included in your rent. So is a temporary membership to the popular Shoals Club or BHI Club (for week-long rentals). Daily memberships are available for the Clubs' fee.

The Shoals Club is located at the eastern point of the island. It features two pools, one for small children. The Club has a private walkway to the beach. It provides towels, beach chairs and umbrellas for use at the shore or by the pool. Enjoy a light fare at the outdoor cafe adjacent to the pool. Or reserve a table inside for a more elegant meal.

The Bald Head Island Club has a wonderful 18 hole golf course, swimming pool, state-of-the-art fitness center and several dining venues.

If you’ve been to Bald Head Island, you’ll know that "Cool Change" is perfectly located in Flora’s Bluff along South Beach, just minutes by golf cart from the Club, the Maritime Market, and the ferry

If this is your first visit, you’re in for a real treat. Bald Head Island is rich in history and is a nature-lovers paradise. You’ll want to visit Old Baldy, the oldest lighthouse in North Carolina. Take the tour to hear tales of the pirates who used to sail these waters. And stop at the Bald Head Island Conservancy for information on a variety of nature programs.

Bicycles, sailboats, and kayaks are all available for rent, and some outfitters offer lessons.

"Cool Change" is a no-smoking home and pets are not allowed. We'll love to have you spend some vacation days with us.

On-Island manager is available to help should any issue arise.
