Why C. Swaim chose Bald Head Island

We have enjoyed Bald Head Island for over 10 years, we have made some wonderful memories hear and hope you treasure the relaxed atmosphere of the island. The tranquil sunsets and quiet beaches are truly wonderful.

What makes this house unique

As you leave your car on the mainland and take the short ferry ride to Bald Head Island you will experience a vacation like it was meant to be. The worries and cares of the mainland will be left behind and the island greets you to a much slower pace to absorb all the beauty of Bald Head Island.

23 Tanbark - Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 couples has been coming to Bald Head Island for 19 years to get away, have some adult time, and enjoy the island! We have rented many places at BHI in all those years, including a family location for many years. This home is by far our favorite on the island - for how nice the inside is furnished and stocked ( we enjoy all cooking in one night), for the amazing view of the marsh that we all did NOT want to leave, and the location of this home near the marina with restaurants, some shopping, and Old Baldy all within walking distance. We also enjoyed that we could purchase the Shoals Club temporary membership and venture out to East beach and have chairs, umbrellas, and chairs provided! And did I mention the view from the great room upstairs and the upper deck of the home? Thanks for providing such a warm and inviting place to stay and sharing this little piece of heaven with us! We hope to return in years to come :)

House was in a great location. Right off the marina in easy walking distance of shops, restaurants and ferry. House was very comfortable. Kitchen very well stocked with cooking supplies, equipment etc. the separate apartment was great for my son, who tends to sleep a little later. Highly recommend.

Amazing house with premium amenities

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation home for our family! We visited with our family of 7 and had plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the space. The view of the marsh is amazing and watching the tides roll in and out from the deck was a treat. The kitchen is fully stocked with great cookware and glassware, knives and plates - a great find for a rental home! The location is perfect for accessing the restaurants and fun shopping locations on BHI. We also walked to the Sail Shop and kayaked one morning, then returned to the Sandpiper for ice cream and coffees before walking home. Would stay here again for sure!
