All you really have to bring is you, your family, you clothes and your swimming suits. There is a full service grocery store on the island and open till 9 or 10 PM depending on when you visit the island.
Access to the island is by a "people ferry". There are no cars on the island. What's so unique and peaceful about the island is that everyone gets around the island on golf carts or bikes. Those are provided at our home/rental house with a 4 passenger & a 6 passenger golf cart . Also there is a trailer provided to carry "stuff" to the beach.There are also several adult bikes & a small child's bike provided.
There are over 10 miles of beaches and these beaches are never crowded. It's a peaceful and serene island, away from the mainland. But it has the amenities you need: a large grocery store, several places to eat, gift shops,a hardware store (which you won't need).
Access to the Bald Head Island pool, tennis courts, & gym is available. This is optional for a short term guest membership. I can obtain the Bald Head Island temporary membership for you April thru Oct for 3 days is $90 & for a full week $145 because I have a "Partner" relationship with the club. If you bought the temporary membership directly it would cost twice that amount. The cost for off season $45 for 3 days & $70 for 7 days because the pool is closed.
