Welcome to "FerryTale Retreat!"

Purchased in June 2020 and refreshed during the fall and winter of 2020, this roomy beach hideaway is brand new to the rental market and features the amenities of home with vistas of the ocean. The home is attractively located close to the beach, clubs and shopping. It is completely refurnished and professionally decorated with 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths.

This home is the ideal place for one or two families or a group of friends to appreciate a memorable vacation together. It has pretty ocean vistas from the kitchen, huge front deck and upstairs king suite -- ideal for watching the sunset, moonrise and for spectacular evening stargazing. The enormous, vaulted-ceiling living room and freshly upgraded nook offer ample seating and entertainment options. Appreciate dinner out on a third private freshly modernized back deck.

"FerryTale Retreat" has been professionally decorated in calming shades of sea blue and grays to help maximize relaxation and bring the striking Bald Head Island beach inside.

The home features four bedrooms, three full baths and sleeps up to ten guests. The main bedroom suite has a king bed and flat screen tv, as well as an ensuite bathroom, a sitting area with a couch and desk and private deck with extraordinary vistas.

The second primary bedroom has a queen bed, flat-screen TV, an ensuite bathroom and is tucked away in the peaceful back of the home. This room also features private deck access.

Another guest room has a queen bed and deck access and the fourth bedroom offers a bunk bed as well as a daybed with trundle. Closets include hangers and laundry baskets for your convenience.

The gourmet kitchen is entirely equipped with all of the amenities you could want and features stainless appliances. The kitchen is open to an airy dining room that seats eight and a newly modernized breakfast nook for additional seating, dining and entertaining space.

The sunlit living room is open to the kitchen and includes a flat-screen Intelligent TV and a huge space for calming with family and friends. The home is well-supplied with puzzles and games.

A full-sized washer and dryer are in a sizable pantry off the kitchen. A high chair and pack & play are located in the pantry along with an iron, ironing board and drying rack.

Each bathroom is equipped with a hairdryer. Starter packs of shampoo, conditioner, body soap, tissues and bath bar come in each bathroom. We also supply starter dish detergent, paper towel and toilet paper rolls.

Two golf carts will transport you around the island (one brand new 4-seater purchased in 2018 and another 4 seater that comes with a rain cover).

We provide beach towels, all linens, pre-arrival cleaning, wireless internet service and four intelligent TV's. There are three brand new adult bicycles and three new kids' bicycles as well. We also have a beach umbrella, two body boards, a bocce set, horseshoes, sand toys, a beach push cart and multiple beach chairs for your use.

The large outdoor area downstairs features lush tropical vegetation and opens to a finished cavernous mudroom area to hang your towels with stairs to the main floor. There is a newly updated outdoor shower ideal for rinsing off the sand.

Gas and charcoal grilles with tools are at the ready for you.

If you are interested, you can purchase a temporary Lifestyle Membership to the Bald Head Island Club which offers golf, tennis, a exercise club and a pool, along with casual and fine dining. Pricing varies with time of year.

"FerryTale Retreat" is located right off of South Beach Wynd and is convenient to all the island attractions. There is plenty to do on the island - casual-to-chic dining, numerous clothing/gift stores, camps, and education programs, etc. There is a full-service grocery store, ice cream shop and take-out pizza. Fishing, kayaking, surf lessons, scavenger hunts, and sightseeing charters are available.

Once​ you visit, we think you will adore "FerryTale Retreat" as much as we do!

Date of Stay - April 2021
5 stars! We adored the home! It was extremely well organized and decorated. You can tell the owners spent tons of time providing everything you could need. We really liked the beach paintings. We found that the location is ideal, near the beach, the golf course, market, and marina.

N. Edmunds -. 5 STARS

Ferrytale Retreat has all the details covered—and what’s more important than the details? High-end appliances, super-well-appointed kitchen, impeccable décor, a Weber grille, extravagant memory foam beds, two great golf carts (but only blocks from a beach access). Great open spaces and comfortable bedrooms—just a outstanding place to cool down and mix a margarita after a day in the sun. Highest recommendation here.

Tips to get the best Bald Head Island rental experience:

Finding the best rental home value:

  • Reserve your rental as early as possible. Rental schedules usually open twelve months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many groups reserve their Summer rental homes during Winter holiday get-togethers. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Book your Southport rental property in Fall or Spring months to get the benefit of gorgeous weather while saving money and avoiding crowds. Many vacationers use this method to find larger homes within budget, or to book a beach front rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during June, July, and August. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a Southport vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation on the coast? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with loved ones at your favorite beach.
  • Some hosts offer discounts for active duty military and veterans. Remember to ask your property manager if special offers are available for your family.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners typically offer renters an option to add trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which commonly will cost you anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed time as a result of personal medical-related issues or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance can be a a life-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask the property owner for program terms and fees.
  • Often, property management companies and vacation rental houses supply Southport area visitors guide magazines that include special offers, either offered directly by local businesses, or by way of a relationship between the management company and the business itself. You can also find Southport visitors guide and coupon books at local gas stations and shopping centers.

Planning, picking, and booking your prefectrental home:

  • First, have your group choose vacation dates and a max budget.
  • Decide how many beds and what type of bedroom configuration your group requires. Spacious Home w/Ocean Views from Master, 4BR, 3BA, South Beach location has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.
  • Precise information regarding bedrooms and bed counts is regularly available on booking pages. If not, call the property owner before you reserve the vacation property. Remember that most property listings specify maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds and bunks. You will need to work out what configuration is suitable for your family.
  • Some properties allow pets, and some do not. Allowable types of family pet, size and breeds may be restricted, and additional costs may apply. Ask your host about your furry family members before booking.
  • Does your family require unique amenities? Most rental search websites include amenity lists and search filters.
  • Proper accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. Remember to confirm all necessary amenities are available and included before reserving a rental

More considerations:

  • Add the property manager's information to your phone. Print and take a copy of check in/check out procedures.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a garage door opener, elevator or kitchen appliance. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief telephone call prevents many concerns.
  • Protect the owner (and your stuff!) by locking and securing the home when you are out, just like you would back home.
  • To make sure no damages are linked to your visit, make note of any problem areas upon your arrival. Call the host right away to document your findings. If there is a dispute about legal responsibility later, having a record of issues and contact attempts will be helpful.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like disagreeable vacationers disrupting your home life. Practice the golden rule for common sense. If they like you, locals might even recommend great local food and scenic spots you would've never otherwise known about!
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Locals can often help. Who better to ask where to get the best seafood, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Don't leave anything behind! Just before departing, 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. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Leave feedback! Property owners rely on excellent feedback to inspire new reservations. They'll be much obliged for your review. Alternatively, if something wasn't as described, other vacationing families will will be grateful for your experience and help them have the best future vacation. Be fair with your review. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the property manager had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to fix it.
