About the property

5br, 3 1/2 Bath, Fully Appointed Home Just A Minute From The Beach

Nestled up against the dune ridge, just a minute from the ocean, you'll find this well appointed beach villa to celebrate your island getaway. Close to everything, yet privately positioned, 'Dune Alright' will be the perfect host to your vacation memories of a lifetime.

The home has 5 bedrooms. The master bedroom features a king size bed in a spacious room. Fantastic built in closets create an amazing amount of space. A large flat screen TV and dvd is on hand to drift off at night in front of. Off the master is a private bathroom with jacuzzi tub on one end, and double shower on the other. On the other side of the main floor are 3 bedrooms (1Q, 1Q, 4 twin built in bunk beds). Each room subtly themed to set the atmosphere for your time at the beach. Ample dressers and closets in each room. Each room has a flat screen tv with built in dvd. There are two full bathrooms on this hall. The last bedroom is on the top floor, featuring a queen size bed, under a lovely wood paneled ceiling.

There are two living spaces - one on each floor. The first features a large screen tv, blu-ray, wii, board games, and more. This room also has a queen pull out sofa bed. The main family room upstairs also has a large flat paneled tv, blu-ray, a gas fireplace, and an open, care-free floor plan.

The kitchen has all stainless steel appliances, and is appointed with every appliance, pot, pan, dish, bowl and glass you'll ever need. This includes a keurig coffee maker, a Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker, a bagel sized toaster, and more. Off the kitchen, the porch boasts a Weber gas grill that hooked to the gas line and is always ready to go.

'Dune Alright' offers five unique outdoor living spaces and porches for a little reading time, or a rainy day turn on the porch swing in the very large screened porch with seatings for everyone in your party. Ceiling fans on two porches support the island breezes to make your outdoor time comfortable. There are two outdoor tables (one seats 8, one seats 4). Amazing outdoor shower serves as more than a rinse off location after a day on the beach, as it has hot water for a refreshing morning shower.

The home has two golf carts available for your use while on the island (6 passenger and 4 passenger), as well as two beach cruiser bikes and a smaller one for littler riders. Beach chairs and some beach toys are on hand for your use.

Our home is centrally located to all the island's attractions - golf, tennis, pools, shopping, marina and beach club. A temporary membership to the Bald Head Island Country Club ( is included with your rental. This gets you access to golf (separate fee), swimming pool and new splash park, fitness center, tennis, croquet, playground, and multiple dining options - all included with your rental! An optional temporary membership for the Shoal's Club is available for a nominal charge.

'Dune Alright' has all the appointments you will need on your vacation - you just provide the relaxation, laughter, and good times.

About Jeff Whipple

Jeff & Melanie Whipple - Jeff's been coming to BHI since 1992. He and Melanie married on the island and have owned on the island since. They are from Atlanta Ga and have 4 children.

Michael & Heather Toto - Been coming to the island since 2008 and fell in love with the island at first sight. Heather and Melanie are cousins, helping solidify our mutual love of this island. They reside in Madison NJ, with 3 children.

Jeff Whipple purchased this house in 2014

Why Jeff Whipple chose Southern Coast

After 13 years of owning a Hammocks house on the island, we'd had plenty of time to look at dozens of homes on the market over the years. The condition of this home was amazing - rarely used and never rented. This beach home is a place we wanted to use for our own large family (or a guys or gals weekend away). It felt warm, comfortable, and everything BHI. We added everything anyone would need while at the beach. The multiple outdoor porches added more living space and hide-aways from anyone to steal some private relaxation. This home is centrally located to everything on the island.

What makes this house unique

Bald Head Island country club temporary membership is included with your rental. Optional temporary membership to the shoal's beach club is available for a nominal fee. Linens are provided - just bring your beach towel.

A true paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful island and house! I can't think of a better place to go and unplug for a week. If you're thinking about BHI, this is the perfect place to stay.

Fabulous time!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 adults and 6 young children/babies loved our week at Dune Alright. The home provided great communal and private space in a perfect location-close to beach, pool and market. Could not have been more perfect. Hope to come back. Thank you!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

I am no stranger to BHI, having visiting at least 15 times. Dune Alright truly is a great house. The location is ideal and close to both clubs, the beach, the market and the marina. The rooms were all spacious, the kitchen a wonderful gathering spot, and the dual living rooms ideal for a large family. The house also had more than enough beach chairs, bikes and umbrellas for our use, so we did not need to rent any additional items. The carts were both great and easy to park/charge. Honestly, everything you could think of was provided in a fantastic setting.

Great stay on Bald Head Island!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 7 day trip at Bald Head. Dune Alright was perfect! We had 6 Adults and 5 kids - there was enough space for everyone to sleep and play comfortably. We especially loved that there were 2 living spaces - the kids could watch movies or play games after dinner while the adults visited up stairs. The 5 porches were terrific.

One last note - We have rented many times before on Bald Head and the owner of this home was SO responsive and easy to work with in the months leading up to the trip! Lastly, we had an issue with the golf cart charger while on the island - Matt, the property manager, had it replaced in no time!

Thanks again for letting us spend the week in your perfect home!

We loved our time at BHI in April and stayed at the fantastic Dune Alright. Beds with great pillows are comfortable and bedrooms are beautiful. The kioptchen has new pots and pans, a Keurig machine as well as a Mr Coffee, a marguerita machine, large toaster and a nice microwave. The upper decks are great to sit and listen to the waves breaking as you drink your morning coffee or evening glass of wine. Two golf carts are available to tour the island. We biked every morning and could easily walk to the beach. We loved the location as the house is nestled in the dune ridge which gave lots of privacy and the beauty of nature surrounding us. We are already planning another visit. We can't wait to come back to Dune Alright.
