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.

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!!

Wonderful week, Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great rental. Everything was just as advertised and much more. "read below" This is our first time to the Island and not knowing how to get from the ferry to the villa made us a little nervous. Call the ferry service and let them know you are staying in Villa 46. They do the rest. Within a few hours of being on the island we were talking about coming back. The transition between the ferry and the Villa was easy. We loved the location of this Villa. It has a prime spot looking over the ocean and close to the pool. I never understood why people go to the beach to get into the pool but now I do. The bartenders at the pool bar were great! They also have a splash pad for the smallest kids to enjoy. The kitchen was updated and the villa was clean. Finally a place that you can feel comfortable letting the kids have a little freedom. One other thing is that the villas are the only houses on the island that had grass. I did not see any other house with grass. We will always remeber Villa 46 as the place that our kids learned to ride a bike. Before the week was over they were riding circles around the whole island.

Here are some tips to know about Villa 46. There are two coffee makers a Kurig and traditional brewer. In the garage there was a gas grill, 4 Bikes, 2 boogie boards, and 2 beach chairs. The golf carts were in good condition. We also found the grocery store on the island had everything at a fair price.

Another great stay at Villa 46

  • 5 of 5

My family has spent the past two Memorial Day weekends at Villa 46 and they have both been great. We're convinced this is an ideal spot for us. We have two young kids (4 and 6) who love sleeping in the upstairs bunkbeds and having their own space. The proximity to the BHIC pool is key, the views are great and the beach is a short ride (or walk) away. Chris was very responsive too when we left a bag in the house and didn't realize it until we arrived in Southport. He connected me right away with the cleaning people who confirmed that it was still in the house and offered to do more if I needed it. We will definitely return!
