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 (not a golf /tennis membership, pool/restaurant access only) . 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.
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.
