About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Spectacular views abound from the rooftop deck of this 4 bedroom, 4 and 1/2 bath, spacious beach home. Nestled in the comfort and shade of the island’s largest oak trees, just 2 minutes from South Beach, East Beach, and The Shoals Club. Our home features all the luxuries you could desire … four porches, a gourmet kitchen fully equipped with a 6 burner stove and granite counter tops, stereo that provides music throughout the home, gas fireplace, wide planked hardwood floors, wet bar with wine refrigerator, and professionally decorated with the accouterments to create a relaxing yet refined atmosphere.

Be ready to be smothered in luxury. The outdoor gas grill along with the fully equipped kitchen helps create those memorable dinners that you’ll always remember relaxing with friends and family. Beach access is just minutes away. The Commons park, a wonderful escape for children to play, is only a block away.

The home has a reverse floor plan with the living room, kitchen, and one of two master bedrooms upstairs. Each of the 4 bedrooms has their own private bathroom. There are two spacious masters, one up and one down, with tiled showers and extra comfortable mattresses for a great night’s sleep, and both have access to outdoor porches. Two additional bedrooms on the first level provide additional accommodations for 4 more people. One bedroom is equipped with bunk beds and a trundle bed, sleeping up to 4. The second bedroom is equipped with a queen poster bed that can sleep 2 people.

A spiral staircase carries you up to the ocean view roof-top deck. The perfect spot to catch sunrise and sunset views of the breathtaking beaches of Bald Head Island. What a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and a glass of wine at night after a wonderful day of exploring. For star gazers, the rooftop deck is the best place to view constellations or the Moon View!

Other special touches include a wine refrigerator, ice maker, DVD players in two bedrooms and the living room with a 37 inch flat screen HD TV, two screened porches, washer and dryer, and FREE INTERNET ACCESS.

There are two fully equipped clubs on the island; Bald Head Island Club and The Shoals Club. Membership to the BHI club includes access to the golf course, tennis courts, swimming pool, exercise room, three croquet courts, and gourmet restaurants. Membership to the Shoals Club includes access to the heated swimming pool, deck, bar, fine dining, and many children’s activities.

The Bald Head Island Club membership is available as a separate purchase:

The Shoals Club membership is available as a separate purchase:

$250 weekly. $150 for 3 day minimum.

Our rates include two golf carts (a six and four seater), bikes, and beach chairs. One of our favorite amenities of the house is the private outdoor shower. There is nothing more refreshing than an outdoor shower after a day at the beach.

Bald Head Island is a natural beauty, highlighted by loggerhead turtle nesting areas, a maritime forest, and tidal marshes. A golf course and a tennis and pool complex are available at the Bald Head Island Club. For those seeking fine dining, The Shoals Club is in walking distance and overlooks the Cape Fear.

We have worked hard to provide every special comfort we can think of to make your stay a memorable one for you and your family. Picture yourself walking to the beach, showering outdoors from a long day in the sand and drinking wine on a rooftop deck with the ocean breezes gently blowing. Moon View is that special place where you can stop and say “life is good”. We believe our home is a unique and peaceful place, and we know you will feel that way about Moon View too. Our role is to make your experience special and we will work hard for you to make this an unforgettable vacation.

About The Owner

Great trip to Bald Head at MoonView!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Bald Head and we absolutely loved it & the house we stayed in! The house itself was perfect - especially if you have young children! Everything we needed they had! Secure baby gate(s), highchair, pack n play, kids plates/cups/bowls, beach toys, & even a jogging stroller! And I have to admit, I had no clue just how much we’d love the rooftop deck! It was absolutely gorgeous to watch the sunsets sitting up there amoungst all the tree tops! We loved how each room had its own bathroom & how light & bright the house was! It might have been our first trip...but certainly won’t be our last! Thanks to the owners for being overly accommodating to all our needs!

perfect escape

  • 5 of 5

bald head island in march was just what we were looking for! with our overbooked and busy schedules we wanted a getaway for our family spring break where we could be together and be unplugged. the house was in a great location on the island. we could easily bike to the beach and we took long walks at least twice a day. my kids were so excited about all of the amazing shells and drift wood that we found on the beach. i felt like we had the entire island to ourselves. often we did not see another soul on the beach and it was magical for our family.

the house was well stocked and furnished with beautiful yet comfy furniture. the beds were all very comfortable. the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed from cast iron pans, cupcake tins to a crock pot. my kids enjoyed taking a "dip" in the big garden tub since it was too cold for a swim.

the new golf carts were great and we were happy to find beach chairs and bikes in the garage.

moonview was a great house for our family and i would highly recommend it!

love to travel from Big Sky, MT to BHI, NC - & all points in between

Lovely Sunsets from Rooftop Deck - BUT a few issues

  • 3 of 5

It is difficult for me to rate this property as "average" because our average stay on Bald Head has been phenomenal. This property didn't quite make the cut, and we really wanted it to! (We have used VRBO at least 15 times in the past decade, and have never left a negative review - rented in CO, MT, NC, FL, or GA.


* Bald Head Island itself is great fun and never disappoints! Spending time with family was wonderful!!

* This was a beautiful home! We loved the rooftop deck - was used at least 3 times a day every day.

* Great layout/floor plan for having lots of family all together. Excellent outdoor areas and porches.

* Fabulous kitchen with granite, stainless steel appliances, and a 6-burner gas stove.

* Comfortable seating for many around dining room table and in great room.

* Golf cart service folks were very responsive when we had issues and flat tire.

* Corn hole, lots of chairs for beach, boogie boards, etc. came in handy.



* First problem - only one cart at house initially. Management co. claimed one of our party must have had it out when we returned from market to find it was back. Everyone in our party was at the market in other cart. Not good PR to accuse renter when it was really missing because it was being serviced.

* The golf carts are NOT in good working order. The 6-seater is persnickety at best - especially in reverse - violent lurch - definitely accident waiting to happen. (Our party included both a veteran golf professional and golf course superintendent, so it was not an issue of "operator error." The 4-seater is hard to get in reverse, and has a dangerous exposed metal strip on the top/back, which required great caution when climbing aboard to ride on the reverse-facing back seat. We did call for service on larger cart when it wouldn't go in reverse. We had issues with both carts daily. We did not call the rental management company over this issue beyond 2 calls on the first day.

* As a note for future renters, neither of the ice makers were working up to par during our stay.

* There are tons of tiny ants in the kitchen. (Didn't call mngmt co. - didn't want them to come in and spray.) We tried diligently to keep kitchen clean and food put away; ended up throwing out about $50 worth of food that was in cabinets covered with ants.

* Rats (yes, rats--from building project across street?) carried off corn hole bags right from porch

Too bad: lovely home, many issue

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments on our Bald Head house. As proud owners who want everyone to have a wonderful experience in our house, we are disappointed to hear that your experience was less than perfect. We have since had both carts serviced subsequent to your departure to address the finicky issues with the gears and to further evaluate any other areas in need of repair. With all homes on the island the issue with ants is generally as a result of food that is left out. However, we understand that this is not always the case. Our pest control company inspects the house regularly and addresses specific situations as needed. We have since spoken to them about the situation during your stay in order to reduce the possibility of this occurring in the future. With regards to the stand alone ice maker, the slow production of ice can definitely be a frustrating experience, especially in the heat of summer. We had the machine recently serviced and will continue to do so regularly during the summer months as needed. The Jenn Air refrigerator/freezer with an ice maker is only 6 months old and Jenn Air reports it is producing ice normally. Unfortunately, outdoor rodents can be found on the island, particularly in construction areas. In an attempt to minimize our exposure to rodents, we maintain a contract with a pest control company to treat the inside and outside of our house. And we have informed them of your experience to continue to prevent rodent problems. We truly appreciate your feedback as we want to ensure that we do all that we can to enable all of our renters to have a positive experience while staying at our house.

Girl's Trip!!

  • 5 of 5

Five girlfriends stayed at Moon View for 3 nights (NOT long enough!) and we had THE best time! How could we not?! ! The home is beautifully decorated and is so welcoming---we all were excited from the time we walked in the front door Sunday afternoon! Each day included relaxing on the front porch--biking--walking--exploring the island in the golf carts--shopping--and lots of talking!! The kitchen is easy to cook in and we spent a long time sitting around the table after meals. Then we would retire to the comfortable living area to watch television on their big screen---and finally would decide to go to bed! Probably our favorite memory of being in this awesome house was watching the sun go down every night we were there. The memory of the time we spent on the rooftop will be with each of us for the rest of our lives. On our last night---as the sunset---we played the hymn, "Amazing Grace". It was truly a holy, spiritual moment for each of us---the wine glasses were put down and we all stood up in awe of God's beauty and thankful for His grace in our lives.

Don't miss a chance to stay in Moon View!! And as for the five of us--we are definitely going back!

April 6, 2013

I was privileged to spend 5 days at “Moon View” on Bald Head Island in March 2013 and found the house to be very comfortable and homey. The four bedrooms each with a private bath gave us plenty of privacy while the living area (great room, kitchen and dining area) provided plenty of open space to interact. The screened back porch and the huge front porch and upper balcony provided a lot of protected outside space, but the observation deck on the roof was a glorious spot to watch the sun rise and sun set with a lovely 270 degree view of the horizon. Being located at the end of the island, it is very near to the beaches and the two golf carts (one of which is a “stretch” for 6 people) and the 5 bicycles provide very adequate transportation over the whole island for those who don’t want to walk. It is a wonderful place to which to escape.

Owner's Response: Dear Richard, we are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. From the moment the ferry drifts from Southport into the Cape Fear River, we also feel like we are escaping on a magical ride to Bald Head Island and its secluded way of life.

Be Sure to Catch the Moonrise over the Ocean from the Crow's Nest!

  • 5 of 5

Moon View feels more like an extraordinary tree house than a beach house. That's not only because it's nestled on a hummock of gnarled, old trees, but also because the grand stairway rises up through the very center of this secluded pied-a-terre.

As a result, you're completely surrounded by the "great room" as soon as your head crests the surface of the second floor (as if it were the ocean itself). If there's a party going on--and, believe me, this house was made for a party!--you emerge in the very center of the action...with everyone greeting you at once. It's quite magical.

But here's the real kicker: Step through the door onto the cozy, little back porch on the second floor, and you'll find a 12-foot spiral staircase to a crow's nest that soars high above the other houses!

From there you can not only catch every sunrise and sunset, but all the moonrises over the ocean as well! They're a little tricky to pull off–the moonrises, that is–but something you'll never forget (especially if you stabilize your binoculars). In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if that's not where this enchanted, little cottage with its hidden stairway gets its name.
