Leave the mainland behind. Bald Head Island is a 20 minute ferry ride to paradise. Enjoy the peace and quiet of no cars or traffic on our quaint little island.

Bald Head Island is the southernmost of North Carolina’s cape islands where the Cape Fear River meets the Atlantic Ocean. It is accessed by a 20 minute passenger ferry ride from the ferry terminal at Deep Point Marina in historic Southport, N.C. to the harbor at Bald Head Island. Once you arrive a shuttle will take you to your rental all further transportation on the island will be by foot, bicycle or golf carts.

The island has restaurants, shops, hardware store, full service grocery store (wine and beer only-bring liquor if desired), historic lighthouse and country club. The beaches are rarely crowded.

Walking distance to the Conservancy.

Start your morning off with a cup of coffee on the screened in porch. Then it is just a short ride or walk to the beach.

After a great day of sand and surf kick back in this tree canopied cottage and enjoy a patio cookout.
2 bedrooms in the main house.
Crofter (bedroom and full bathroom with a shower) over the garage. This is has AC and heat.
1 minute golf cart drive to East Beach. About 4-5 minutes to the market. Shoals club is just around the corner.

Cottage is stocked with all the comforts for a relaxing vacation. Linens for the house are included. Beach towels are NOT included. Kitchen has all the tools and gadgets you need.
Just bring your cooler and beach towels, chairs and umbrella.

There are some chairs and toys in the garage that you are free to use. I cannot guarantee the status of these items week to week. So you may want to pack your own. The sea and weather seems to destroy these items quickly.

There may be 4 or 5 adults bikes for you to cruise around on and 2 scooters. Helmets are not provided, a toolbox and bike pump is in the pantry in case you need to adjust anything. Please return all tools including the pump to the pantry. Use at your own risk, owner cannot guarantee the working status from week to week.

You may bring your own bike over on the ferry. They charge about $25 for transporting it as large cargo. You will have to drive back up to the ferry and pick up your bike. Shuttle does not handle large cargo.

Plenty of family fun with board games, books, DVDs and a nature walk in your backyard and the park around the corner.
Wi-Fi is available just in case you have to stay in touch or brag about your vacation before you go home.
Family room has a 46 inch flat screen with DVD player NO CABLE TV bring you Roku etc.
