New Listing! Quintessential Bald Head Island Cottage

Adults-only Bald Head Island vacation home in Cape Fear Station with fitness center
This beautiful Nantucket inspired cottage in Surfmans Walk is nestled in the maritime forest, just a short walk from East Beach, the most popular beach on BHI. It is also a short walk (and even shorter golf cart ride) to Shoals Club, The Commons Park, Bald Head Island Conservancy and miles of biking, hiking and walking trails. The two porches and tree-canopied patio with fresh salt air and the sounds of soothing surf in the distance offer a perfect backdrop to read, drink a glass of wine, cook out, have your morning coffee and relax with family. The front porch directly accesses a boardwalk complete with ancient oaks, Spanish moss and a community gazebo. Outdoor deck is outfitted with a gas grill and comfortable seating. Al fresco dining is available in the screened-in porch adjacent to the deck. This house provides extra privacy as each bedroom has it’s own bathroom and smart TV. There are two bedrooms in the main house. The master bedroom has a king bed. The other bedroom in the main house has 3 twin beds (2 twins and a trundle). There is also a detached tree-house style guest cottage over the garage, which provides extra privacy with a queen-sized bed, smart TV and ensuite full bathroom. Cottage is well stocked with all the comforts of a relaxing beach vacation—WiFi, 2 golf carts (6-person and 4-person), heated outdoor shower, 6 beach chairs, 4 cruiser bikes, bed linens, bath towels, beach towels, beach umbrellas, sand toys, boogie boards, board games, books, portable high chair, pack n’ play crib, Keurig and regular coffee makers, blender, crock pot and fully stocked kitchen. Bike helmets are not provided. Bike pump is in the garage. Weekly rentals are Saturday-Saturday in summer. We will entertain shorter stays outside of the high season. Message me to discuss.One exceptional perk about our house is the option to purchase temporary memberships at both Shoals Club and Bald Head Island Club (pool/restaurant access only; NO GOLF/TENNIS membership available to BHI Club for this home) for $300 and $350 per week, respectively . Not all homes have access to both clubs. Shoals Club is closest to the house (5 minute walk), oceanfront and offers pools, dining, fitness center and beach access. Bald Head Island Club is about 10 minutes away from the house by golf cart and offers multiple pools, park, water park and 3 different dining venues. Both clubs offer beautiful views and excellent food. Photos of both clubs are included in the pictures for our house. **NOTE: If playing golf on vacation is important to you, then you need to be sure you rent a house that provides a golf membership to BHI Club. This house only offers a membership for pool/restaurant access to BHI Club. Another benefit of our house is having 2 golf carts—4-person and 6-person. 2 carts enable groups to separate for the many different activities the island has to offer. Amazing restaurants and a fully stocked market are minutes away from this quintessential Bald Head beach cottage. In short, our goal is for you to have everything you need to enjoy the perfect vacation. We will take good care of you on your stay.Please message me with any questions.

September bliss
Great place if you are suffering from the Covid blues and need to getaway. The house was the perfect size for my immediate family to enjoy all BHI has to offer. The owner was a gracious host and made every effort to ensure we enjoyed our stay.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect little beach house!
We had fabulous time staying on BHI! This beach house couldn’t have been more perfect for our 2 families to vacation together. The house was clean, cute and convenient to our favorite beach spot (the point). Also, the host was great! I’ve rented a ton of vacation properties over the years and never have I had a property owner so proactive and attentive to our needs, which made for an even better experience than expected. We will totally be back!

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful woodsy beach cottage
We had a wonderful time at this Surfman's Walk home. The location of this home is terrific. Close to East Beach and the Shoals Club, and minutes to the Market. Catherine the owner was a pleasure to work with. She was very responsive and helpful with details about how the Island works. We will definitely be back next year!!

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing stay
Catherine couldn’t be nicer or more accommodating. The location of the house is perfect- 5 min walk from the beach and a short bike ride to Mike’s bites! We had a week of wonderful moments- seeing baby turtles released, beautiful sunsets, and lots of fun swimming in the warm waters of East Beach. We just loved it and the house was perfect for our family- very clean, well appointed and great amenities. We particularly loved the use of the bikes, the body boards, and beach chairs. We will definitely be coming back!

5/5 Excellent

Perfect cottage in perfect location
GaGa’s Gift had everything we needed for a perfect week at BHI. Cottage was more spacious than it looks in the photos with plenty of room for our family. The decor was very nice and the neighborhood was perfect for walks. Very private and relaxing. The owner was so helpful and responsive we had nothing to worry about!
