Vacation Rentals

Located off the southern tip of Cape Fear, tiny Bald Head Island (BHI) is a family-friendly destination lined with 14 miles of pristine beaches. BHI’s unique position on the Atlantic Ocean, influenced by Gulf Stream waters, makes it warmer and less windy than other beach destinations in the region. The result is a subtropical climate that allows tropical vegetation to flourish and gives the area an abundance of palm trees.

The island offers a wealth of vacation rental options from luxury homes with stunning ocean views to charming beach bungalows. A wide variety of amenities can be found in these homes, including large pools, expansive porches, and gourmet kitchens. Many of the homes also include golf carts and bikes for guests to use, giving them an extra sense of convenience and allowing them to explore the island at their own pace.

When planning your getaway to Bald Head Island, consider renting a beachfront home for you and your guests. This will provide you with an unforgettable experience and help keep you close to your wedding venue for the entire weekend. Bald Head Island Limited Property Management can assist you in finding the perfect beach house for your trip to BHI.
