About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8) - BHI Club Included

Panoramic ocean views from almost every room in the house! Villa 46 sleeps 6 people comfortably and up to 8.

There are 2 master bedrooms(king,queen) with full baths. The former loft has been partially enclosed to hold a third bedroom with 2 twin beds and a 1/2-bath. This is an ideal layout to accommodate a family or 2 couples with children for the perfect getaway. Enjoy exploring the island in our 2 four-person golf carts.

Included in the rental rate is a temporary membership to the Bald Head Island Club. Within in a 2 minute walk, the club features 4 new tennis courts, a playground, short-grass recreational area, workout facility, swimming pool, croquet course, casual and fine dining and, of course, the George Cobb designed, award winning 18-hole golf course.

'With the George Cobb-design and Tim Cate's renovation you feel the essence of the island, that Bald Head Island Club is a course like no other. The course will take you around 15 fresh water lagoons and wind through a maritime forest, topping off your play with ocean air that challenges your role in club selection and shot placements. Recently, BHIC has been rated 'Best Places to Play' and given four-stars by Golf Digest magazine. The golf course has also been ranked by North Carolina Magazine as a 'Top 10 Coastal Golf Course.' '


Bald Head Island is only accessible by boat or by a ferry, which departs frequently out of Southport, NC. Southport is 40 minutes from the Wilmington, NC (ILM) airport. A tram ride to the villa is included with your ferry ticket. Reservations are required. Visitors and residents travel around the island by golf cart, bike or by foot.

Villa 46 comes with 2 adult beach bike. Please bring your own helmets. Additional bikes can also be rented. Climb to the top of “Old Baldy,” which is the oldest lighthouse on the East coast. It was built in 1817 and originally commissioned by Thomas Jefferson. Hike and wind your way around live oaks hundreds of years old and through the nature paths that Revolutionary and Civil War soldiers used in the ancient Maritime Forest. An upscale grocery market, spa, and shopping area and recycling plant is a short golf cart ride away. Discover the Bald Head Island Conservancy at the end of South Beach, where you can learn about the island’s wildlife. Sign up for classes, including the popular evening “turtle walks” to search for and observe nesting Loggerhead Turtles and if your timing is right even watch their hatchlings heading to the ocean for the first time!

We have a professional property manager who lives close by on the mainland. They will be able to help with any concerns once you arrive. The villa has been painted with no VOC paints and is maintained and cleaned with environmentally friendly products.

Our kitchen is fully equipped, plus linens, towels, and departure maid service is included.

Wide open ocean views

  • 5 of 5

Just walking into this adorable house is so enjoyable! The decor and layout are perfect. Then the view striking from almost everywhere you are in the house. And location couldn’t be beat. Walking distance to BHI club for lunch and supper. Four days of Tennis and 2 rounds of golf even though it is February. Thank you for sharing your lovely home wth us.

Great Location, great Villa for 2 small families

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our New Years Weekend at this property. The view from the living room and outside deck was amazing. We did have an issue with the Golf Cart, however the property owners were fast to get it fixed with no hassle to us at all. They were very responsive. Only suggestion we have is maybe invest in new beds or memory foam pads. Also, update your "welcome letter" with the new WiFi passcode. Thanks for the stay, we will consider this property again in the future. FYI for families with kids, the upstairs loft TV is not hooked up to Cable, however a dvd player is provided. We brought an Xbox, so they were able to play games and watch Netflix. Thanks again.

Sorely Needs Maintenance

  • 2 of 5

Although the villa is located directly across from the beach, it has not been well maintained. We were greeted with cock roaches on the interior and peeling paint everywhere on the exterior, a "1980's bath" in the second bedroom with no bath mat, a lock on the sliding glass door that did not work properly (which meant we had to take our valuables everywhere with us during our stay), questionable cleaning (The wood floors had not seen a wet mop in ages and the remotes were filthy), noise coming from the wall behind the stove in the kitchen, and a terrace umbrella that did not open as it was broken.The larger beach umbrella provided had several broken ribs and could not be used. For the amount of money we paid per night, this was certainly not an acceptable quality/price value. Owner provided a 4 page information page which was very helpful but which had the wrong internet password log in on it.

Wedding on Bald Head Island

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our vacation on BHI and my son's wedding couldn't have been any nicer. The combined families are hoping to make it an annual gathering place. The only complaint I had was the one golf cart didn't have working headlights and even though the Villa came with a complimentary membership to the Bald Head Island Club we didn't know what we needed to do in order to use that privilege. Being on the beach with virtually no one else was wonderful. We also loved that the island is so pet friendly.

Thank you for a wonderful vacation and a very memorable wedding.

The Zweizigs!

Beautiful View!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our time in this Villa! The view of the ocean is even better than I expected based on the photos. The owner was great to work with and proactive with our needs. We loved the easy access to BHI Club. It appears they are in the process of upgrading certain spaces and the master with the king could use a bathroom remodel. The deck was very weathered but we really enjoyed the amazing sunset view. We also enjoyed watching the wildlife in the lagoon from the deck as well. Our family would be happy to stay here again!!
