About the property

5 Bedroom, 5 Bathroom Home Perfect for Families With Beach and Golf Course View!

Renewal at BHI, a roomy home designed for family fun, fellowship, respite and relaxation. This home has five (5) bedrooms (3 queen beds and 2 rooms for children with 2 twin beds in each) and five (5) full bathrooms. It also has a pull out queen couch in the first floor den. Sleeps 12 comfortably. Ceiling fans throughout the home in all bedrooms and common areas as well as screened eating area on outside deck. Rents Sunday - Sunday in season.

Our home has a reverse floor plan with a light, airy feel. The second (top) floor includes an open, well equipped kitchen, dining area, great room, queen bedroom and full bath. Views of the ocean, golf course and lagoon are amazing and plentiful. This home has large windows on all sides in order to enjoy the beauty of BHI.

The first floor contains four bedrooms and full baths along with a second den. Each bathroom is private containing granite counter tops and showers. The home is large enough there is plenty of room to 'spread out' both inside and outside.

Our home has decks galore! The porches on the second floor face the ocean on the front as well as porches on the back of the home which face the 17th fairway and lagoon. There is a screened porch accessible from the dining area offering a great place to enjoy meals. The first floor has decks wrapping the house from front to back. Guests can find shade, sun or a light breeze almost year round depending upon the porch chosen and time of day. Rocking chairs, a double chair swing and a hammock on the back corner are awesome for reading a book! The backyard is fenced for children and swings for the kids are located under the house. Kids and adults will enjoy the joggling board on the first floor back porch as you watch the golfers on the fairway.

The house rental includes 2, six seater Club Cart golf carts and numerous adult and kids bikes for easy access around the island. The home is located on a street that runs parallel to to the beach; few travel the road that are not using homes on the street. Therefore, the street is wonderful for riding bikes, rollerblading, walking and playing games such as four square. As 'traffic' on BHI is limited to golf carts, it is a wonderful spot to enjoy incomparable freedom exercising on public roads.

Linens and towels (bathroom and beach) are included. Beach chairs, charcoal grill, beach toys, golf cart trailer and bicycles are located in the garage. Temporary membership to the BHI club includes use of the swimming pool, tennis courts and eating facilities. Rates include cleaning services.

No dogs or animals allowed.

The first floor includes four bedrooms, each with it's own private full bath and a den/TV room. The garage is located on the ground floor with access to the house from inside or outside the garage. WiFi available.

Why James and Laura Vann chose Bald Head Island

After finding this great lot centrally located between the golf course and the beach, we designed the ideal layout and built our home with family fellowship in mind. We gave hours of planning thinking of how we enjoy spending time together. You will note the comfort of our home and the numerous places to enjoy outside as well.

We had a wonderful week at Peaceful Renewal! The house is beautiful, even more so than the pictures! It is spacious , airy, and full of light from the many windows. The views of the ocean and golf course are everywhere you look. The design and flow of the house is near perfect and the decor is just that right sort of upscale beachy cheerfulness. Our whole family loved it, from married children, toddler grandchildren, to single young adults. There is lots of attention to what you might need including beach equipment , beach towels, and kids toys. The location is really great. It was so nice being close to the club and the beach! We especially enjoyed all the porches, screened and ocean front. One night, we all watched an incredible storm roll in. (Though we otherwise had great weather:)Bald Head is just a beautiful place and one of our favorite family gathering places. Peaceful Renewal provided a perfect place for us to have a special week together!

Wonderful Turkey Day Experience

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful Renewal for the Thanksgiving Holiday is our new tradition! We were two families, including 4 children between the ages of 2 and 12 that had all visited the island in the past. The house was modern, wonderfully clean, and VERY family friendly. It certainly did not feel like a rental house -- more like we were staying with friends.

The location was perfect – mid-island, close to the beach with awesome views and only a short golf cart ride to the store and marina. Being on a cul-de-sac makes the location wonderful if you have young kids who like to bike and scooter yet you don't want them to wander too far. So much to do; so little time! The things that make Peaceful Renewal our favorite include:

1. Location with great view of the ocean, beach and golf course from the many balconies - especially the phenomenal sunsets from the top balcony off the living room; we took great photos of the sunset every night.

2. Well-stocked kitchen including all the pans, utensils and sharp knives for big family meals. We were able to cook great meals every morning and evening and will be talking about the food and great company for years to come.

3. Beautifully decorated with an open floor plan in the living area which was great for cooking and still being part of the family fun!

4. Owners were exceptional to rent from. We had great communication throughout the rental process and a minor problem with the golf cart was addressed quickly.

5. A more than ample supply of toys for all ages, from boogie boards and kites, to bicycles, beach chairs and grills; all in good working order. For those night-time inside activities there is a large selection of books and games.

Everything fell nicely into place with great friends, great food, awesome location and weather that could not have been ordered up any finer (not sure the owners ordered up the weather for our stay, but I will give them credit anyway). I highly recommend to anyone who has a family, group of friends, or significant others to stay at Peaceful Renewal during their next trip to Bald Head Island. Thanks for a memorable trip!

Perfect stay at Peaceful Renewal!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Peaceful Renewal for the long Columbus Day holiday weekend. The location of the house was perfect and the view from the balcony was amazing. The house is very close to the BHI Club, which was convenient for us because we were attending a wedding there. Within the house, the accomodations are superb. We didn't bring our kids on this trip, but this house is perfect for a family with kids. There are endless toys, games and puzzles for the kids. The kitchen is very well stocked and had everything we needed to cook at home.

We had 7 adults in our party, so it was great to have 2 6-seat golf carts. We also had a great time biking around the island on the beach cruisers available at the house.

We highly recommend this property for your next BHI vacation. The house was perfect and the owners were very pleasant to deal with.

This is our favorite home we have rented at BHI!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this amentity filled home!! The location was perfect...close to the beach, BHI club (has a great splash pad and playground for kids), market, and the ferry. This is a perfect house for families, we had three girls under the age of 4 in our group and it was so kid friendly. Also, the layout is great and they really maximized the space with all of the outdoor porches as well. The owners were very accomodating and a joy to work with. We had a wonderful vacation and will definitely be going back next year!

The Bald Head Island Conservancy is located on the island, an awesome educational opportunity for families and those interested in nature. The Conservancy's mission is barrier island conservation - BHI is a barrier island on the East Coast of the US. Many programs and hands-on opportunities are available to guests and residents of BHI in the Barrier Island Study Center. One of the Conservancy's primary focus in summer months is the protection and study of sea turtle nests. From May - September, guests can watch turtles lie nests and/or baby turtles hatch and return to the ocean! An experience unlike any other!

Transportation at Bald Head Island is 'car free'; guests primarily use golf carts to enjoy sights around the island. If you enjoy exercise, roads are a great place to walk, jog, roller blade, bike, push a stroller or scooter!

The BHI Club offers guests a pool, tennis and croquet courts, golf course and restaurant.
