About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Full Baths, 2 Half Baths (Sleeps 10-13)

If you are looking for privacy, a spectacular view, and luxurious comfort, your search is over. 47 Cape Creek is deeply secluded in Middle Island's maritime forest, yet just a five-minute cart ride from East Beach and the Shoals Club. You will never want to leave our 50-foot ipe deck with its high overlook of the marsh and creek. Our 3200-square-foot, professionally decorated home features a huge, fully stocked chef's kitchen, elevator, and THREE golf carts, including one six-person stretch.

Watch movies on the 50-inch 1080p flat screen TV while relaxing on the Natuzzi leather sectional. The four master bedrooms, all with attached full baths, including the enormous king bedroom on the main floor, have plush mattresses, high-thread-count, 100%-cotton sheets and thick, 100%-cotton towels. On the entry level is a bunk room with an attached half bath. An outdoor shower, screened porch, and WiFi complete the amenities.

Both Shoals Club and BHI Club (with golfing privileges) temporary memberships available for purchase through us, but are not included as part of the rental fee.

Stays including holidays, namely Easter, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years, have a four-day minimum.

We consider up to 2 dogs of most breeds, as long as: 1) they are calm and well behaved; 2) they do not get up on the furniture, even the beds; 3) they are absolutely, under-all-circumstances house broken; 4) they are on the older, more mature side; 5) they are currently on flea prevention treatment. Please contact me if you would like to bring your pets so we can have a conversation about it.

About Maggie Glezer

We love to tour and travel around the world, but also need to unwind. Bald Head Island is our special place to totally relax. We always bring tons of books to read, and love to cook together, share afternoon tea, watch the sun slowly sinking, and watch family movies at night. There is beauty on the island everywhere you turn, it never fails to take our breath away.

Maggie Glezer purchased this house in 2005

Why Maggie Glezer chose Middle Island Plantation

Bald Head Island is a very unique place, where nature has been respected and preserved. This house was built by Charlie Young, the developer of Middle Island, for his own use. Sitting on a high bluff with wide view of Cape Creek and the Maritime Forest Preserve, this house was built with a good knowledge of island living. The deck is unbeatable, and is cooled all summer by the prevailing wind. The house is extremely spacious and comfortable, perfect for a larger group, two families, or anyone who wants total privacy and convenience.

What makes this house unique

If you love seclusion--not seeing or hearing any neighbors at all, yet want to be just minutes away from East Beach and the grocery store, this is your house. The house has so many wonderful attributes: our view is spectacular; the kitchen is huge and so well set up; we have put the best mattresses and linens on all the beds, the list goes on and on. You will not be able to decide where to best idle away your time, whether on the screened porch, on the deck, or in the living room. We are really excited to be renting the house ourselves, and want to pamper our renters with the best of BHI living.

House was spacious, clean, great views

  • 5 of 5

The views of the marsh are really lovely. The house was modern and spacious, had more than enough seating for our group of 8, has well-equipped kitchen, and the owner was very responsive. The private beach access was nice in that the beach was significantly less crowded. We had a couple of appliance issues, but the owner quickly responded to those.

Awesome faimily retreat

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful deck and view of the marshland. Rooms are spacious and nice large gathering areas. A nice tropical forest contrast to being at the beach during the day. Definitely would stay there again!

Rain or Shine, Terrific House!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at this property--perhaps the only one on BHI we'll stay at from now on! We LOVE the Middle Island location, which offered a green, off-the-beaten-path feel but was just minutes from the beach (with the best waves!) and Shoals Club. The house was fully equipped with everything you could want, including several beach towels, bikes, and well-maintained golf carts with rain flaps. My husband particularly loved early-morning fishing off of the Middle Island dock, while I enjoyed reading in the hammock on the patio overlooking the marshy creek. Another favorite spot was the queen-sized daybed on the covered/screened porch--complete with durable lights for evening ambience! Very tranquil setting! Even though it rained nearly every day we were there, we still had lots of fun primarily because of the indoor amenities of this house: a closet full of games & puzzles for kids and adults, multiple TVs, shelves of adult & teen literature, a great selection of DVDs, a big common area, and a huge, well-stocked kitchen. While nearly every house on Bald Head can offer reasonable proximity to the beach, THIS IS THE HOUSE that can save the day during a week filled with RAIN! The owners were very prompt in answering every question we had (both before and during our stay) and very sweetly accommodated a slight change in dates after we had committed in writing--very reasonable, a pleasure to work with! We will be repeat customers, for certain!

Perfect House for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

We just had a wonderful week in this lovely home during our family reunion. The house is secluded, yet accessible to everything via a short cart trip. Having 3 carts was so convenient - everyone could do exactly as they pleased....or just stay at the house and relax. We all loved the day bed on the screened porch - perfect for napping. The kitchen/living/dining area was large enough for all 11 of us to be together, enjoying the sights and sounds of nature. There were plenty of beach items (toys, towels, etc.) so we lacked for nothing. Maggie was very accomodating and easy to work with. We would love to visit BHI again, and would definitely stay in this gorgeous home!

Beautiful, well kept.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay over Thanksgiving this past year, 2017. The Maggie was so kind and personable. She was very easy to work with throughout the entire process. The house was immaculate, and we felt like we were staying in a tree house overlooking the marsh. The views were gorgeous. The beds were comfortable, and I brought too many kitchen supplies. They have a very well stocked kitchen. You never know with rentals, but we lacked for nothing. Thank you for a wonderful trip. We made many happy memories, and would not hesitate to return to your lovely home. I miss it already!

Amazing house in beautiful natural setting

  • 5 of 5

This house is just amazing! We really enjoyed our stay and appreciated the constant contact with Maggie to make sure everything was perfect. The house itself was roomy and beautiful, with an excellent selection of books, puzzles, games, and excellent views of the salt marsh. We looked for quite a while before finding this gem for my traveling group of 4, one of which is unable to climb stairs due to limited mobility, plus a dog. This pet friendly house was absolutely perfect with an elevator and 3 golf carts. Access to the private beach and private floating dock was also a great benefit. This Island has so much wildlife to see (during our stay, we saw deer, alligators, fish, turtles, crabs and shrimp in the salt marsh to name a few) and the natural scenery was such a great experience for us and our visitors who are from the west coast. We stayed for 4 nights but could easily have stayed 4 more. I highly recommend this property and we will most definitely be back!

Our property is very close to the private Middle Island dock where the crabbing and stargazing are great; the BHI Club has a world class croquet field.
