About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8) - BHI Club Included

Panoramic ocean views from almost every room in the house! Villa 46 sleeps 6 people comfortably and up to 8.

There are 2 master bedrooms(king,queen) with full baths. The former loft has been enclosed to hold a third bedroom with 2 twin beds and a 1/2-bath. This is an ideal layout to accommodate a family or 2 couples with children for the perfect getaway. Enjoy exploring the island in our 2 four person golf carts.

Included in the rental rate is a temporary membership to the Bald Head Island Club. Within in a 2 minute walk the club features 4 tennis courts, a playground, short-grass recreational area, workout facility, swimming pool, croquet course, casual and fine dining and, of course, the George Cobb designed, award winning 18-hole golf course.

'With the George Cobb-design and Tim Cate's renovation you feel the essence of the island, that Bald Head Island Club is a course like no other. The course will take you around 15 fresh water lagoons and wind through a maritime forest, topping off your play with ocean air that challenges your role in club selection and shot placements. Recently, BHIC has been rated 'Best Places to Play' by Golf Digest magazine. The golf course has also been ranked by North Carolina Magazine as a 'Top 10 Coastal Golf Course.' '

Bald Head Island is only accessible by boat or by a ferry, which departs frequently out of Southport, NC. Southport is 40 minutes from the Wilmington, NC (ILM) airport. A tram ride to the villa is included with your ferry ticket. Reservations are required. Visitors and residents travel around the island by golf cart, bike or by foot.

Villa 46 comes with 2 adult beach bike. Please bring your own helmets. Additional bikes can also be rented. Climb to the top of “Old Baldy,” which is the oldest lighthouse on the East coast. It was built in 1817 and originally commissioned by Thomas Jefferson. Hike and wind your way around live oaks hundreds of years old and through the nature paths that Revolutionary and Civil War soldiers used in the ancient Maritime Forest. An upscale grocery market, spa, and shopping area and recycling plant is a short golf cart ride away. Discover the Bald Head Island Conservancy at the end of South Beach, where you can learn about the island’s wildlife. Sign up for classes, including the popular evening “turtle walks” to search for and observe nesting Loggerhead Turtles and if your timing is right even watch their hatchlings heading to the ocean for the first time!

We have a professional property manager who lives close by on the mainland. They will be able to help with any concerns once you arrive. The villa has been painted with no VOC paints and is maintained and cleaned with environmentally friendly products.

Our kitchen is fully equipped, plus linens, towels, and departure maid service is included.

Wonderful week, Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great rental. Everything was just as advertised and much more. "read below" This is our first time to the Island and not knowing how to get from the ferry to the villa made us a little nervous. Call the ferry service and let them know you are staying in Villa 46. They do the rest. Within a few hours of being on the island we were talking about coming back. The transition between the ferry and the Villa was easy. We loved the location of this Villa. It has a prime spot looking over the ocean and close to the pool. I never understood why people go to the beach to get into the pool but now I do. The bartenders at the pool bar were great! They also have a splash pad for the smallest kids to enjoy. The kitchen was updated and the villa was clean. Finally a place that you can feel comfortable letting the kids have a little freedom. One other thing is that the villas are the only houses on the island that had grass. I did not see any other house with grass. We will always remeber Villa 46 as the place that our kids learned to ride a bike. Before the week was over they were riding circles around the whole island.

Here are some tips to know about Villa 46. There are two coffee makers a Kurig and traditional brewer. In the garage there was a gas grill, 4 Bikes, 2 boogie boards, and 2 beach chairs. The golf carts were in good condition. We also found the grocery store on the island had everything at a fair price.

Another great stay at Villa 46

  • 5 of 5

My family has spent the past two Memorial Day weekends at Villa 46 and they have both been great. We're convinced this is an ideal spot for us. We have two young kids (4 and 6) who love sleeping in the upstairs bunkbeds and having their own space. The proximity to the BHIC pool is key, the views are great and the beach is a short ride (or walk) away. Chris was very responsive too when we left a bag in the house and didn't realize it until we arrived in Southport. He connected me right away with the cleaning people who confirmed that it was still in the house and offered to do more if I needed it. We will definitely return!

Great Place for a Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was clean and had all the amenities for a perfect vacation. It had beautiful ocean views and was very convenient to restaurants and shops on the island. Chris was so easy to work with and answered any questions we had about are trip. We can't wait to come back next year!

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a weekend here with the wife and dog. One minute walk to BHI Club, great views of the beach. More spacious than I imagined a Villa would be. Owner is attentive.

Only suggestion is to bring your own beach chairs.

This is a great spot for couples, a small family, and of course for your dog!

Great location! Beautiful place!

Great location right across path from beach, close to club for pool, etc. Perfect view to watch the sunset. Clean and nicely furnished. Minor maintenance items but owner responsive to requests and questions.

Nice property -- it is a work in progress

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights during off-season/early spring season on BHI. We had never visited the island before.

The goods: Great location, great view, 2 golf carts that work as described (though they weren't charged when we arrived), and 3/4 of the villa had been updated very nicely. Owners are very easy to work with. Lots of potential things were available (golf carts, washer & dryer, bikes, umbrellas, beach gear). Great access to the club - easy walking distance. When you consider the amount the amenities included in the price, the rental value starts to come into line.

The not-so-goods: The bikes in the garage were so rusted (chains, wheels) that we couldn't really use them - I couldn't find any WD-40; the master bedroom suite with the larger bed had not been updated yet; the master bed was really hard and uncomfortable -- a 2" foam topper from Costco for $139 would have solved that (vs a $1200 mattress set); no soap in the house - fortunately we went to Walmart on the mainland before hand and bought some; the decks and outside stairs and furniture are in dire need of paint and minor repairs -- nothing dangerous, but an aesthetic distraction.

All in all, they are about $20K away from a fabulous vacation rental!

We will likely stay on BHI again this fall, though we likely will try out a different unit when we return with the kids.

Thanks Chris!
