Unwind and relax this summer at Marsh Mellow! This 4-bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home is available for rent for the first time. Located at the end of Leeward Court, this home features some of the best vistas on Bald Head Island.

The main home features three second-floor bedrooms, including a master suite with a king bed, soaking tub and separate shower, and a terrace overlooking the marsh and creek. The guest room with a queen bed shares a bathroom off the hallway with the kids' bedroom, which has two twin beds (or a pullout queen couch bed if your guests prefer to sleep on that). The second floor also has a separate office, with a great view of Old Baldy. On the first floor, appreciate an open floor plan with two sitting areas, a dining area, seating at the kitchen bar, and sliding glass doors that open onto the deck. The living area is filled with books and a wide assortment of games and puzzles for your family and friends to savor. The kitchen is completely supplied with everything you will need for your week at Marsh Mellow. The first floor also has a full laundry room and a half bath.

In addition to the main home, the crofter over the garage is freshly finished, with a queen bed, shower, separate toilet, modest kitchenette, and vistas that make you feel like you're floating above the creek. If you prefer an outdoor shower, that's available too, located underneath the crofter in the yard. In the garage, you'll find two 4-passenger golf carts, along with beach chairs, sand toys, body boards, and three bicycles, accepting you to enjoy outdoor life on the island. You can effortlessly rent additional bicycles or equipment for water sports on the creek at the close by Riverside Adventure Company.

Speaking of the outdoors, Marsh Mellow has a splendid front porch that is typically shaded and features a bench, two chairs and a hammock (our kids appreciate the hammock). The yard is fenced in, and the enormous deck off the side of the home is what makes the outdoor area really special. With separate sitting and dining areas (including a new dining table and chairs not featured in the photos), along with an outdoor grille, it is the ideal spot to enjoy time with family and friends, taking in the beauty all around you. If you sit on Marsh Mellow's deck during the day, you'll see ibis, herons, pelicans and sometimes even dolphins frolic in the marsh. At nighttime enjoy the view of Old Baldy lit up as well as a spectacular view of the nighttime sky.

A few additional notes:
*There is no smoking anywhere in or around the property. Please help us maintain a smoke-complimentary environment.

*Unfortunately, we cannot allow family pets. We sometimes travel to Bald Head Island with our three cats, and we do not want any other pets in the home. (For people with cat allergies, we clean the home thoroughly, but be aware that there are sometimes feline visitors at the home when we're there ourselves.)

*High speed internet and Wifi are supplied. The home has a Sonos One music speaker (kitchen) and three TVs (1st floor living room, 2nd floor kids' bedroom, Crofter), each with a streaming device (Roku or Amazon Fire Stick). Subscriptions to streaming services not included.

*Membership to the Bald Head Island Club is not included in the base rental rate. Guest temporary membership may be available for separate purchase. Contact the Bald Head Island Club directly at (910) 457-7300. Guest memberships are limited this summer, so we can't guarantee that a guest membership will be available for your rental week.

*A guest Shoals membership is not available at Marsh Mellow.

*Reservations for the tram from the ferry book up early each summer. The good news is that we often avoid using the tram, choosing instead to walk to Marsh Mellow, then taking one of the golf carts back to the ferry to pick up our suitcases. Feel complimentary to reserve a tram if that's better for you and your guests.

*By booking the property, you accept the terms of the supplied rental agreement.

If you have any questions about amenities, appliances and supplies in the home, or anything else related to your trip, please contact us before you travel to Bald Head Island. We want to make sure you have a great time and feel at home at Marsh Mellow.

Tips and Tricks to get the best rental experience:

When to go & When to reserve a rental home:

  • Reserve your rental as early as possible. Rental schedules generally open twelve months in advance (or in September just after Summertime ends). Many families reserve their Summer rentals during Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • To find the best value, consider shifting your trip dates to the Spring or Fall shoulder seasons. May, September, and even October offer great temperatures, less crowded beaches, and greatly reduced traffic. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to book an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable during the Summer.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property manager or host whether your family qualifies for a price reduction.
  • Property managers typically offer guests an option to obtain trip insurance. Trip insurance, which costs between 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for days missed as a result of medical-related issues or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel stay or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance can be a a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for details.
  • Find a copy of your local Southport area magazine upon arrival. If your rental home doesn't have one, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great information, travel guide magazines contain offers and deals for nearby attractions, tours, restaurants, and shops.

Make a plan and choose a perfectrental:

  • Begin by choosing your a vacation week and a maximum budget.
  • Note the number bedrooms and the configuration your family needs. Gorgeous Marsh Views! has 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our rental home search.
  • Specific descriptions of bedrooms and bed types is often accessible on booking pages. If not, contact the property owner before you book the property. Note that most properties list maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in living rooms. You'll need to work out what bed configuration is right for your vacation group.
  • Some rentals allow pets, and others do not. Acceptable types of pet, weight and breeds may be restricted, and added charges may apply. Ask the property management company about pet restrictions before booking.
  • Visiting for a single event or attraction? Use a map search to locate nearby properties.
  • Suitable accessibility can make or break a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. Remember to confirm all necessary amenities are available before reserving a rental

Additional considerations:

  • Get the host's contact number and arrival/departure procedures for your rental.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a fireplace, television set or washer/dryer. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief call can prevent many problems.
  • Lock your rental while you are out and about. Protect your property!
  • During check-in, note any issues with the property and immediately contact the property manager. Record all coorespondence.
  • Respecting quiet hours and parking policies can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. Be a good neighbor. You will increase your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors can be a fantastic source for finding the best local scenic spots.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Residents can frequently help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to find the fresh catch of the day, have a great night out, or the best spots for shopping?
  • Don't leave anything behind! Before departing, take a walk through the rental property to confirm you've collected all personal items. Make sure to check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Please make sure to walk through the property one final time and keep an eye out for any damage. We suggest walking through with the property manager whenever you can. If the property manager is not available, take video and pictures of the property to record its condition.
  • Remember to leave a review! Property managers rely on good reviews to compel more reservations. They'll be grateful for your feedback. Alternatively, if something went awry, other vacationing families will will be grateful for your feedback find their best vacation home. Remember to be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the owner could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded quickly to remedy it.

Victory Beach Vacations

Visitors who are on the hunt for the postcard-perfect vacation rental in the heart of the Carolina Beach or Kure Beach area will find an enticing selection and plenty of friendly customer service when they rent through Victory Beach Vacations. Based in Carolina Beach in the coastal Cape Fear region, Victory Beach Vacations has more than 100 vacation rentals in all shapes and sizes to ensure that every vacationing family can find their dream home away from home on the beach.   When you book your Cape Fear getaway with Victory Beach Vacations, the fun doesn’t end when you leave the beach, it continues with an array of privately-owned properties outfitted with all of the amenities needed for a fabulous beach vacation.   Jenna Lanier, General Manager, explains that her family first opened the rental and property management business in 2002. At the forefront of Victory Beach operations is Lanier’s mother, Caroline Meeks. Meeks is both the Broker in Charge and co-owner with husband, Buck Meeks, who manages the Field Services team with Lanier’s husband, Scott.   For nearly 20 years, the Victory Beach team has worked tirelessly to establish a network of top-of-the-line rental properties for Cape Fear visitors to enjoy. “As far as our properties go,” explains Lanier, “they are all updated, well-furnished and appointed. “We have always performed post-cleaning inspections and since the pandemic, have put freshly laundered duvets over all of the comforters between rentals.”   Lanier emphasizes how important the guests experience is “we strive to give our guests a relaxing, stress free, memorable vacation.” This emphasis on customer service has led to Victory Beach Vacations having a 4.8 Google rating with over 300 reviews by happy owners and guests.In addition to Victory Beach’s superior sanitation practices, the company offers properties for every type of visitor. Choose from luxury oceanfront houses and condos to more reasonbly priced 2nd row properties with oceanviews. Many properties include pools and hot tubs as well, perfect for outdoor entertaining, and many are dog friendly.   Lanier also notes that all properties are within walking or driving distance to Pleasure Island’s main attractions – Carolina Beach and Kure Beach. The former, as described by Lanier, is the more commercialized of the two destinations and features a boardwalk, outdoor dining options and a plethora of weekly activities including fireworks, live music, amusement park pop-ups, and movies under the stars. Kure Beach offers a more residential feel with its fishing pier, intimate restaurants and family favorite, North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher.More water fun awaits, too. “There is a harbor and a canal that feed into the intercoastal. We have several properties on the harbor so guests can bring their boat, kayak, [or jet ski] and travel between islands,” says Lanier.   A stay with Victory Beach Vacations is an annual pilgrimage for most. “A large percentage of guests are previous guests. Some even reserve the same property for the next year as they’re checking out,” Lanier says. “It’s almost like it’s their personal vacation home.”   Even before guests arrive at their vacation destination, the Victory Beach Vacations’ website greets them with a live beach cam and exquisite aerial footage of both Carolina and Kure Beaches.
