About the Property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to East Wind.

When I was a teenager in the mid 70's we would boat over to Bald Head Island, up Cape Creek and go ashore near Bluff Island. It was a quick hike on a path first made in the Civil War, thru the maritime forest to body surf on East Beach. We had so much fun playing in the emerald green waters. The waves were perfect, a beautiful Conch found with even a short walk down the beach. Bald Head Island was undiscovered country: beautiful, wild, an adventure!

Guests are amazed by the privacy and beauty of our ocean front property. A 500 foot driveway leads you to East Wind. Once there you will be surrounded by the natural beauty of Bald Head. East Beach to the front, Cape Creek to the back and a 40 acre private nature preserve for your exclusive enjoyment. You'll see expansive natural views like one would see visiting a ranch out west, except it's at the Beach!

Watch the sunrise over East Beach, enjoy a glass of wine while the sun sets over Cape Creek, or if you are so bold, take the private nature trail and see the Bald Head I grew up with in the 70's: beautiful, wild, an adventure.

The beach experience at East Wind is unmatched. With private beach access you're just steps away from the best beach on Bald Head, East Beach. The prevailing currents on East Beach keep the muddy Cape Fear water to the south, making the waters on the beach a beautiful emerald color on most days. Also, the prevailing southwesterly wind during the summer make for beautiful wave action. The wind blows against the waves holding the crest longer. Since East Wind is at the end of East Beach drive, our property provides the most private beach experience on Bald Head Island. It's amazing.

If you like antiques you will feel right at home at East Wind. Our cottage is decorated with period antiques and has an extensive seashell collection. A cannon from 1525 guards the driveway (earliest known example of a bronze cast cannon recovered from a new world wreck. Seen in picture below). Four bedrooms, each with a private bathroom, are decorated in soft pastel colors. Three bedrooms have a queen bed. One bedroom has a double bed. Each bedroom occupies a corner of the house and provides both ocean and marsh views! The middle of the house has an open floor plan with a kitchen overlooking Cape Creek, a dining room in the center of the house, and living area with a large flat screen TV overlooks East Beach.

A bonus downstairs playroom makes for a great place to land in between trips to East Beach. The downstairs area has twin beds, a large bathroom, living area with large flat screen TV, and foosball table. This room was designed to have fun in! (Bonus playroom is connected to the house by outside stairs so it is suitable for older children or supervised younger children.)

East Wind has three golf carts, two 4 passenger golf carts, and one two passenger golf cart 'truck' great for grocery store runs, four bikes, 8 beach chairs, paper products, linens, wine / drink refrigerator etc. and your choice of a temporary membership in the Shoals Club or BHI club.
