Bald Head Island, one location with several possibilities. We encourage you to; explore the 14 miles of pristine beaches, hike the maritime forest, kayak the creeks and marshes, soak up the sun, start a new family tradition, couples getaway or celebrate a milestone. It’s all about the magic and the memories. Experience the beautiful Island, sun, ocean and wildlife. Indulge in the infinite water activities; stand up paddle boarding, boating, fishing, swimming, surfing, beach-combing, kayaking, wind surfing and sailing. Discover an endless agenda of activities designed to entertain, educate and pamper or just reconnect, relax and replenish. Nurture your mind with programs offered at the Conservancy, climb “Old Baldy,” a 200-year-old lighthouse, visit the Smith Island Museum and historic sites. Indulge your senses of adventure and most importantly treat yourself to an unforgettable vacation!

Welcome to Bald Head Island! Welcome to our brand new home, “A Shore Thing”, a luxury vacation home custom designed to feel like your own. Completed May 21, 2014 to host your family for the summer rental season, beginning June of 2014.

Retire to a comfortable king or queen size bed with silken linen for a restful nights sleep!
“A Shore Thing” comfortably sleeps 18 guests, three master bedrooms with king beds, queen bedroom, bunk room with two full and two upper twin beds and a private crofter with two queen beds, tiled full bathroom and kitchenette. Each of the six bedrooms have an adjoining private tiled bathroom with granite counter tops.

There’s a plethora of outdoor space choices with comfortable outdoor furniture; covered front porch with ceiling fans, second floor deck, third floor observation deck, screened porches and a deck between the house and the crofter. The reverse floor plan maximizes ocean views. The third floor observation deck boasts beautiful ocean views by day, sunsets and star gazing at night! Sip wine as you watch the sun set over the glistening water from the third floor observation deck. On Bald Head Island the sun both rises and sets over water. You can hear the ocean from the house!

Grab one of our fluffy beach towels provided for each member of your family and in less than a minute stroll along the boardwalk, your toes are in the sand on East Beach! Or take one of the three golf carts and drive around the block to East Beach. We’re less than two minutes from the Shoal’s Club, BHI Conservancy and South Beach.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We are natives of Massachusetts. We enjoy the beach, wildlife and outdoor activities; fishing, kayaking, and hiking. We love spending family time on the Island and creating lasting memories. We are happy to share our home with other families. It has been such a rewarding experience to receive emails, phone calls and thank you notes from families who have enjoyed themselves at 'A Shore Thing.'

Why the Owner Chose Cape Fear Station, Bald Head Island, NC, USA:
In 2011 we were fortunate to discover Bald Head Island. We were looking for a vacation home on the Outer Banks for over a year and could not find what we were looking for. Purely by good fortune we came across a link to Bald Head Island, NC. We did some research, contacted a Realtor, purchased a lot and flew down to see the Island, in that order. We had never even been to NC before. We fell in love with this beautiful Island, it was EXACTLY what we had been searching for! Our original plan was to wait four years and then build our dream home. However, we couldn't wait! We were passionate about the Island, it's wildlife, the life style, and the conservation/preservation of this enchanting barrier Island. We got to work immediately; hand picked our Builder, Architect and Designer to help us make our dream home a reality. We could not be any happier with our decision! We know now that it was fate that we found BHI and not an accident.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We especially appreciate the casual, relaxed lifestyle of the Island, friendly vacationers/ residents, the varied environments of this spectacular Island and the wildlife. This past summer we were fortunate to see a loggerhead turtle's nest boil....amazing!
