About the Property

Sleeps 10. 4 Bedrooms. 3.5 Baths.

Located in the Harbour Village, this 3-story home enjoys marsh and creek views from the first floor, and river and beach views from the upper levels. Sit on the front porch in rockers to watch the kayakers paddle down the river, or lounge on the back porch to get away from it all.

The home is just a short walk to the bustling marina and the harbor beach, and a golf cart ride (on one of the two 4-seat golf carts included with your rental) to 16 other unspoiled beaches, preserved maritime forests and marsh hiking trails. We provide kayaks and bicycles to enable you to discover the beauty of the island.

Your rental of at least three days includes a temporary membership to the Bald Head Island Golf, Tennis and Swim Club (3-4 night rentals will receive a 3-day membership; 5-7 night rentals will receive a 7 day membership; longer rentals will receive a membership for the length of your stay). If you are joining us for a shorter amount of time we can arrange a club membership at a preferred rate. The BHI Club includes an award-winning golf course (green fees not included), tennis courts, a wonderful kid-friendly pool, a new water 'splash park' for the little ones, a state of the art gym, and formal, informal and poolside dining.

For an additional charge, our guests may also select a temporary membership at the Shoals Club, which we are happy to coordinate for you. The Shoals Club ($240/week; shorter memberships available as well) is located at East Beach in a superb ocean side setting. It offers both a main pool and smaller child's pool with beautiful ocean views, as well as complementary beach chairs and umbrellas. Informal pool side and restaurant dining are available.

Our home includes two golf carts, each seating 4 people. The master bedroom has a king bed and lovely sitting area with a love seat and easy chair. The second master on the third floor has amazing views, a king bed, as well as a twin day bed with twin trundle that pops up to make a second king. The third bedroom is all about the kids! It has bunk beds, a smart TV with all sorts of movie and app capabilities, a DVD player, and a Wii gaming system, and is decorated with a children's nautical theme. The fourth bedroom contains a queen bed and beautiful new bedding and decor. There are three full bathrooms upstairs, and a powder room on the first floor. The dining room table seats 8, and the bar between the kitchen and living room has 3 bar stools. For the home theater lover, catch the game or a movie on the big screen after a day at the beach -- this home has a 65" flat screen TV with Apple TV, Blueray DVD player, and a Sound Bar with amazing surround sound.

When you board the ferry for the 20-minute ride to Bald Head Island, you leave your car behind, along with the stress of the mainland world. Transportation here is limited to golf carts, bikes, or your own two feet… resulting in a more relaxed, easy-going pace. Stroll 14 miles of pristine beaches, try your luck on the acclaimed seaside golf course, eat at fabulous restaurants, or climb a 200 year old lighthouse.

It is a place like no other, where you can relax, unwind, and adjust to 'Turtle Time' living. We are so excited to be the new owners of this wonderful home at a place so very special to us, and we hope you will soon be our guests.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We were married at Bald Head Island so it holds a special place in our hearts. We have vacationed here ever since with our three children, and are so excited to now have our own home away from home at this magical place.

Why the Owner Chose Bald Head Island, NC, USA:
We love the Harbour Village location -- our home is on a quiet street, but close enough to walk to our favorite BHI restaurants, the harbor beach, or a spot to drop a kayak in the river.
