Located in Bald Head Island's 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 nights includes a temporary membership to the Bald Head Island Golf, Tennis and Swim Club. 3-4 night rentals will receive a 3-day club membership; 5-7 night rentals will receive a 7 day club 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 pool complex (renovations on the spectacular new facilities will be complete in late 2018), a "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 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. (We cannot substitute a Shoals Club membership for a BHI Club membership, but can add it on).
Our home includes two golf carts, each seating 4 people (decorated for our dueling alma maters, UVA and UNC). The master bedroom has a king bed and a private balcony/porch with Adirondack chairs to take in the gorgeous views. 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.
