About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

The address for 'Time to Unwynd' is 801 South Bald Head Wynd or 801 Killegray. This is a wonderful oceanfront home on tranquil Bald Head Island, North Carolina in the award winning Killegray/Flora's Bluff community. You have direct beach access down a charming boardwalk. Sit on the front porch in your rocking chair and watch the dolphins swim by or sit on the upper deck off the master bedroom and have a direct view of frying pan shoals also known as Cape Fear.

Our home has one bedroom on the first floor with a private screen porch, ensuite bathroom, and a queen bed. The master is upstairs with a king-size bed, ensuite bathroom, and private porch. Third bedroom upstairs has two twin beds and private bath. The fourth bedroom is in a separate guest house, called a 'crofter' just out the back door of the main house. The crofter has a king bed and full bath. There are also two aero bed mattresses that can be used for additional sleeping. Availability to both private clubs on the island, the Bald Head Island Club which provides golf privileges and the Shoals Club oceanfront beach club.

In the garage you will find two golf carts, one six passenger and one four passenger. Both installed with seatbelts for your safety and the safety of your children. You MUST be a licensed driver to operate a golf cart on Bald Head Island.

Also in the garage you will find four bikes, a large bucket full of sand and beach toys and beach chairs for your use. North Carolina law requires children under the age of 16 to wear a bicycle helmet. We try to keep a couple available in the garage for your use. However, feel free to bring your own.

All linens and towels are provided. High speed wireless internet access, unlimited long distance, and more are just some of the features of this home-away-from-home.

If you have never visited Bald Head before, there is a nice well stocked grocery store on the island. The grocery also carries a selection of wine and beer. Liquor is state controlled in North Carolina and sold at ABC stores. There is not an ABC store on Bald Head Island.

If you are flying to the area and need transportation from the airport to the ferry, Southern Hospitality shuttle service is available. Their number is 910-457-4949.

About Amy Lothrop

We live in Charlotte, NC and have been coming to Bald Head for 20 years. Our children have grown up on the island!

Amy Lothrop purchased this house in 2005

Why Amy Lothrop chose South Beach

We bought our first house in 1999 in the Killegray neighborhood. We had purchased a lot on the island to build, but love the Killegray area so much we really didn't want to leave. However, we wanted a little more space and more bathrooms as our children became teens. So in 2005 801 Killegray became available. We decided to buy it instead of building on our lot. We named it 'Time to Unwynd' and the rest is history!

What makes this house unique

I love the panoramic views from inside the living room! I have a great view everywhere I look. I love that I can see all the way to Cape Fear from my front porch.

Beautiful Cottage on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Great for an extended family. Clean and open design. Owner is very accommodating, and was available to answer questions. We would definitely enjoy another visit to this beach house.

Well stocked and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week for the week of Memorial Day. The house was clean and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. There were 4 bikes which we enjoyed as well as 2 golf carts. A 4 seater and a 6 seater which was very helpful considering we had 8 people. The only complaint was that one of the battery chargers did not work and we didn’t find out until our cart died twice and had to be pushed. After figuring this out, we just rotated charging the carts which wasn’t that big of a deal. The owner did say she requested a new charger but one was not delivered before we left.

All in all, a great vacation. I would recommend this to anyone and would definitely consider starting here again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind review! You are welcome back anytime. There was a loose wire in the second charger that they fixed and all is well with it now. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

Beachfront Bliss on BHI's South Beach

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect and the location was perfect. The marina, the BHI club, the Shoals Club, the conservancy and market were all very convenient to this location while still being far enough away from the more "crowded" spots. Though nothing is really crowded on BHI. Golf carts were brand new and super fast and the house was tastefully updated and perfect for 4 adults and 2 small kids. She had plenty of beach chairs, beach toys, umbrellas, and towels available and the grill and outdoor living spaces were very enjoyable. We thoroughly LOVED our BHI vacation and will hopefully be booking again!

Another Wonderful Stay at Time to Unwynd!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Time to Unwynd and we felt it was even better than our first stay. The updated kitchen and master bath turned out beautifully! The house is clean and well taken care of. Many reviewers mention that the pictures do not do it justice and I have to agree. The house has 4 nice-sized bedrooms, each with it's own bathroom. The kitchen is well stocked and there are even books, movies, and puzzles to keep you entertained indoors. There are 2 golf carts, 4 bikes, and plenty of beach chairs and toys. The proximity to the beach makes this the perfect house to rent on Bald Head Island. We would most definitely stay here again and again!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Great house. The pictures really do not do it justice. We really enjoyed spending time on the porch and beach. The four bedrooms and their separate baths offer privacy with nice and ample communal spaces inside.

It's a great location, just a twenty minute walk down the beach to the cape which is gorgeous. We really loved the island. It's so relaxing. Amy was very helpful and attentive, with the notes and suggestions that she left in the house and by text and email. I would love to stay there again.

The Best House on Bald Head Island

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful oceanfront home has four bedrooms, each with its own private bath, a well-stocked kitchen, an abundance of ocean toys, bikes, two new golf carts, and is updated and clean. Amy and her family makes sure that your visit will be comfortable and happy. The house is decorated in beach colors, and the house is sunny and bright. We stayed here once with our children and grandchildren and later I returned for a reunion with seven other women. Everyone was completely satisfied with their accommodations. You can't find a better rental on this island.
