Dalwhinnie Cottage, Killegray Ridge, Bald Head Island, North Carolina, is a bright, airy, whimsical, three story lantern oceanfront beach home facing South Beach with direct beach access by boardwalk to the ocean and reversed living area on the second floor which offers spectacular vistas of the ocean.

The ocean vistas from this bungalow are marvelous - on a clear day you can see forever. The bungalow has over 50 windows and glass doors, offering vistas from every vantage point which are ever changing with the sun, clouds, rain, fog and wind. From the windows flanking the East side of the bungalow is a view of the point of Cape Fear with the waves on East Beach falling on the Cape, and beyond onto the Frying Pan Shoals.

Directly in front of the home is South Beach w/the clear vista of the ocean with dolphins frolicking and pelicans diving for fish, waves lapping towards the front of the bungalow and ships on the horizon entering Cape Fear River. Sunrise can be adored on the east side of the bungalow from all 4 bedrooms; sunsets from the oceanfront exposure of the bungalow during fall, winter & spring months, as well as from the tall windows flanking the west side of the home, and most certainly, from the third floor west windows during summer months. Vistas do not end at sunset. We have no smog or city lights to hide the moon, stars, even the space station!

Environment: Dalwhinnie is the last bungalow in Killegray Ridge on the ocean, immediately next to Braemar within sight of Cape Fear. A boardwalk extends directly from the oceanfront porch of Dalwhinnie to the beach access. The location affords privacy to its guests - living exposures focus on the ocean and the uncrowded beaches. The street entrance to the home is on a cul de sac off of South Beach Wynd.

The broad boardwalk system in front of Dalwhinnie extends west thru Killegray Ridge into Flora’s Bluff - ideal for walking and play. There are 14 miles of beaches, never busy, waiting for you to step onto, directly in front of Dalwhinnie. South Beach begins at the Point of Cape Fear and ends at the west end of the island where the ocean meets the Cape Fear River.

Dalwhinnie is the ideal place for families with kids or four couples, for families renting multiple homes for weddings or get-togethers or for a peaceful get away for one couple. Each master suite -first floor king bedroom and crofter - offer privacy. A queen sized sleeper couch is on the second floor with half-bath access. All four bedrooms have a private bath.

Floor plan: First Floor includes nine-foot ceilings with entryway; Master Bedroom with King size bed and private bathroom faces the ocean with direct access to the oceanfront rocking chair porch; a second bedroom with 2 double beds & private bathroom has direct access to the screened porch.

Second Floor is the reverse living floor, it has high vaulted, beamed, 14-foot ceilings and hosts the living-dining-kitchen area with an oceanfront deck facing the ocean (South Beach) and a 2nd deck off the dining room faces east towards the point of Cape Fear and frying pan shoals. This deck has dining table and 4 chairs. The kitchen and dining room are located on the second floor floor as well. The second floor sports 17 windows and doors, accepting for our guests to appreciate the ocean without stepping outside.

Third Floor is our whimsical lantern room with vaulted ceiling which includes two twin beds which can be converted to a king, Windows surround the lantern room, facing east, south, and west; and bathroom facing north.

Crofter has 14-foot vaulted ceiling with view of South Beach from window over bed and from deck.

Housekeeping and Maintenance: Dalwhinnie is owned and managed by its owners, and is cared for by the same housekeeper and houseman every week. The bungalow is cleaned for your arrival. Linens and supplies are supplied, as are beach towels. Kitchen supplies including paper towels, coffee filters, dishwasher soap, sponge/tuffy, plastic bags, are all supplied. Maintenance issues when guests are in residence are taken care of by island providers. Dalwhinnie has an HVAC contractor under contract to provide emergency service when needed. Monthly maintenance is performed on our golf carts. Pest control services are included quarterly and as needed. Dalwhinnie has clear lexan hurricane shutters, and an island contractor who installs them when a hurricane is forecast.

Refurbishment: In 2006, major refurbishment! New windows, doors, refinished floors, new carpet, appliances, blinds, even hot water heaters and HVAC systems are new. 2005 and 2006, new beds. Painted inside and out - Dalwhinnie is glistening! In 2010 we replaced our roof, and refurbished our screened in porch. In 2012 we made upgrades to our kitchen to include granite counters, stainless steel sink, garbage disposal. In 2016, we placed a 6 seater Club Car in service. in 2020 we replaced our dishwasher and washer/dryer. All of the boardwalks and stairs at Dalwhinnie have been replaced in the last 3 years.

Tips for getting the perfect vacation home experience:

Get the most from your budget:

  • Book your Wilmington, NC rental in Fall or Spring months to get the benefit of gorgeous weather while saving money and avoiding crowds. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to book a beach front rental that would otherwise be unavailable during June, July, and August. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Wilmington, NC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday near the ocean? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with loved ones at your favorite beach.
  • In the Wilmington, NC area, The earlier your group can book a rental home, the better your selection will be. The best rental properties are reserved very early. Reserving your rental six to twelve months before your vacation is recommended. Holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving are excellent times to plan and reserve your rental.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property management company or host if your family qualifies for a reduced rate.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners usually offer customers an option to purchase trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which usually costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed vacation time as a result of medical-related issues or weather disasters, as well as evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or extra gasoline expenses. Trip insurance can be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for more information.
  • Look for your local Wilmington, NC visitors guide upon arrival. If your rental property doesn't have one, you can find them at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers. In addition to great local information, travel guide magazines contain money saving offers on nearby shops and restaurants.

Narrow your Search:

  • First and foremost, have your family commit to the best dates and a maximum budget.
  • Determine how many bedrooms and the configuration your group requires. BHI Dalwhinnie Cottage Oceanfront 1st Row South Beach-Killegray Ridge has 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Wilmington, NC rental home search.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is normally available on booking pages. If not, email or call the property manager before reserving your rental. Note that most properties list the max. guest capacity, which frequently includes pull-out couches. You will need to establish what is right for your vacation.
  • Visiting for a specific attraction? If so, use a map search to browse nearby properties.
  • Appropriate accessibility can make or break a vacation for those with limited mobility. .
  • Do your family pets travel with you? Many vacation homes allow animals, but guidelines and restrictions apply. Allowable pet type, breed, and size are often limited. Remember to ask the property manager before booking, and study your agreement thoroughly! Pet fees or costs may be applied to your contract.

Have a fantastic stay:

  • Take a copy of the property manager's contact number and entry/exit procedures for your rental. We recommend storing the host's information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • To ensure that no damages are attributed to your stay, record any problem areas during arrival. Contact the rental manager right away to record your findings. If there is a dispute about legal responsibility later, having a record of issues and contact attempts will be very helpful.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a garage door opener, stereo or washer/dryer. Contact your host. They are there to help! A brief text message can prevent lots of problems.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking restrictions can make a stay more pleasurable. You'll increase your chance to make local friends, and resident neighbors can be a fantastic resource to find the best local beaches and restaurants.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Residents can often point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to enjoy a steak with a view, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for fishing?
  • Lock your rental home while you are away. Keep your property safe!
  • Re-check the rental property to make sure that you've packed all of your belongings at departure. 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.
  • Did your family have a great time? Many rental management companies make it easy for travelers to provide comments. If your rental and/or property management company was wonderful, they would love to hear it. If anything was inoperable and they failed to correct it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make it a point as part of your feedback.

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.

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.
