Nestled in a grove of breathtaking palm trees in prestigious Creek Estates, you will find this like-new, tastefully furnished, 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath beauty, featuring a main house and attached guest house. Its central location, within minutes to the market, beaches, BHI Club and chapel, makes it ideal to enjoy all the island has to offer.

Sit and relax amidst the soothing breezes on one of the large porches, which connect the main house and guest house, making it the perfect layout for large/multiple families, weddings and groups. The main house, featuring a reverse floor plan, has three bedrooms on the lower level, all with attached full baths. The main living area on the second floor is full of natural light, with high, beamed ceilings and a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, including adjoining dining area, family room and powder room. Enjoy morning coffee or dinner al fresco on the upper level deck, which is complete with a gas grill and outdoor eating space overlooking the lush sanctuary near the creek. The guest house contains one bedroom on each level; downstairs houses the master suite and upstairs is a bunk room, perfect for multiple children or can serve as a third master, both with an en suite full bath. Additional amenities include: 2 four-seater golf carts in dedicated garage bays, enclosed outdoor shower, storage area with bikes/beach gear, and full-size washer/dryer in the laundry room.

This well-appointed home has been professionally decorated by the interior designer owner (and Coastal Living Designer Network Member) and mother of four, so it is fully stocked for families and entertaining for all occasions. Don’t miss the opportunity to jump on this classic coastal beauty and make this YOUR Coastal Haven!

A personal note from the owners....

Welcome to our little piece of paradise, Coastal Haven! We have been coming to the island for the last few years and wish we had found it sooner. We have four children ages 22, 20, 16 and 13, three girls and boy. We live on Maryland's Eastern Shore and while we have ample beaches within a short drive from home, there is nothing like Bald Head Island.

This is the place where we can be fully present. It is unlike anywhere we have ever experienced. There is something about no cars and being surrounded by nature that lets you take it all in. The forest and the beaches are endless and open for all to explore. When our children get to the island they are gone before our bags hit the floor. They are off on bikes and skateboards, running free with no cares other than to explore and be kids. We spend our days playing on the beach, looking for shells and riding the waves. Then we hit the pool for some afternoon fun, snacks and drinks before dinner, whether that's cooking at home, or enjoying one of the fantastic options on the island. We love Mojo's sushi, cooking fresh salmon from the market, or a fabulous steak dinner at the BHI Club, to name a few. There are also happy hour evenings on the beach and if the winds are cooperating, even s'mores around a beach fire (with the proper permit of course!). We typically round out the evening with a very intense game of Uno around the dining room table.

There is usually a daily trip to the market for one thing or another, from breakfast at the cafe, to restocking our food supply, and even great wine tastings. With three daughters, the shops are a regular stop - each has its own style and full of great souvenirs to take home. Mike's Bites is usually a daily visit too, whether it's for boxed lunches or his one-of-a-kind frozen ice, it's the perfect cool treat on a hot day.

There is the weekly Turtle Trot 5k, which is open to everyone and benefits the Conservancy (plus you get a great t-shirt for participating). We follow all of the turtle nest hatchings and excavations, which is an incredible opportunity for all ages to experience nature firsthand. It has given our children the gift of appreciating the efforts of the Conservancy and respecting nature through hands-on experiences. There are bird outings, kayaking, surfing, paddle boarding, fishing and even night rides to monitor the sea turtle nests with the interns. There are countless activities through the BHI Club as well, from kids' camps, to family games and holiday special events. After all of this activity, don't forget there is a full-service spa to pamper you, too!

Over time, we have created our own cherished rituals, like getting up early to watch the sunrise on East Beach, adopting turtle nests and looking for the elusive intact sand dollar on our beachcombing expeditions. There is the quiet time too - at the house, sitting in the open air, on a porch or a deck, feeling the breeze and listening to nothing but nature. This is what vacation should be about. This place offers everyone the opportunity to unplug and unwind from the chaos and noise of every day life. This time with our family is priceless. The memories are countless and the days go by in a blur of bliss. In a world where we go so fast, here we savor every moment of taking it slow. We are so thankful to have this small piece of the island and we want our guests to enjoy it as much as we do.

This is our vacation home, and we have taken great care to make it yours, too. We have rented countless beach properties here and elsewhere over the years, so we are resident experts (with very high standards) on what makes for a comfortable, clean and exceptional beach vacation property. As a Coastal Living Designer Network Member, this is my specialty. Everything in this home is brand new and we hope the furnishings and finishes will set it apart from anything you have experienced. We have tried to incorporate all of the details and comforts that we appreciate into this home, down to even the smallest visitors. As parents of four, we know what it's like to haul all of the 'stuff,' so we have tried to minimize that for our guests.

This home is perfect for families of all sizes, multiple families, friends, couples, girlfriends' getaways, guys' trips, graduations and weddings to name just a few! It is unique with its attached, but separate guest house, as well as the central location to everything on the island. There are plenty of spaces to be together, or find some quiet time alone. The incredible grove of palm trees surrounding the house is nothing short of good for the soul and we hope you will leave counting the days until you return!
Located in Bald Head Island, this vacation home is on a river. Kent Mitchell Nature Trail and The Clubs at St. James are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's natural beauty can explore Carolina Beach and Caswell Beach. Traveling with kids? Consider North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher and North Carolina Maritime Museum at Southport. Be sure to check out the area's animals with activities such as game walks and birdwatching.
