About the property

4 bedroom, 3 bathroom BHI Forest Home, BHI Club Included

We hope that you enjoy our home and Bald Head Island as much as we do! It is such a wonderful, relaxing place. When you are there, you are on 'turtle time' where there are no cars and no crowds. You can leave your stress and worries behind, and enjoy this family friendly island. It is just a short 20 minute boat ride from the mainland to get to the island.

Our home, Walk the Plank, is in Maritime Forest and is just moments away from the beach, grocery store, and lighthouse. It comes with two four-seater golf carts, a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops, cable TV plus netflix, high speed wifi internet, games (including foosball), outdoor grill, beach chairs and bikes. We also have lots of items for young kids such as multiple cribs, toys, and high chair.

Walk the Plank is a 2400 sf home with the following bedroom/bathroom layout:

*First floor bedroom with twin trundle bed (with twin underneath) and full size crib

*First floor bathroom (full with shower)

*Second floor master bedroom with king bed and master bathroom with shower/tub

*Second floor bedroom with king bed

*Second floor bedroom with two twin beds and toddler bed

*Second floor shared bathroom with enclosed shower/tub

The rental includes temporary membership to the Bald Head Island Club where you have access to dining, pool, splash pad, playground, fitness center, tennis and croquet. Please note that the temporary membership does not include golf access. The rental also includes all linens/towels and final cleaning.

Golf cart safety – – Our two golf carts have been equipped with speed breaks that prevent the cars from going too fast while going downhill. In addition the carts are designed not to travel at excessive speeds. We believe this is very important to ensure the safety of our vacation guess, as every year there are number of unfortunate accidents in golf carts that go too fast. We think that you will find our cards to be very safe, and very enjoyable while on your lovely vacation!

Very nice location and home

  • 5 of 5

Pros: Large living space downstairs was perfect for our group of eight. AC worked very well! Huge kitchen- home was bigger than pictures made it look. Nice, responsive owners. Late summer price was great value. Central location

FYI: this is preference, but beds a little hard. Kitchen/fridge does not have oils/condiments, etc. no hairdryer. The 2 Golf carts were great. Slow one not that slow and the Flash was speedy.

We would rent here again!

Great space for large family!

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do it justice. The house had everything we needed and more. Lots of games and activities for all our kids 4yrs-17yrs old. The living space was large and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting around the large dinning room table for dinners. The bedrooms were all set up were you could replace without hearing what was going on in the rest of the house.

The location was perfect and close to everything!!

Wonderful week on BHI!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Walk the Plank. Beautiful home and a great location. We were close to the Market/shops and also close to the beach! Wendy is super attentive and took care of any concerns/questions we had during the week. This is a great rental if you have kids because they have a ton of games, etc for them! Would definitely stay here again!!
