A personal note from the owners....

Welcome to our little piece of heaven, Coastal Haven! We have been coming to the island for the last few years and wish we had found it sooner. We have four kids 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 countless and open for all to discover. When our kids get to the island they are gone before our bags hit the floor. They are off on bicycles and skateboards, running complimentary with no cares other than to discover 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 appreciating one of the amazing options on the island. We appreciate Mojo's sushi, cooking fresh salmon from the market, or a marvelous 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 stores 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 ideal cool treat on a hot day.

There is the weekly Turtle Trot 5k, which is open to everybody 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 marvelous opportunity for all ages to experience nature firsthand. It has given our kids 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 nighttime 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 peaceful time too - at the home, 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 everybody the opportunity to unplug and relax 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 modest piece of the island and we want our guests to appreciate 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 amenities that we enjoy 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 ideal 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 home, as well as the central location to everything on the island. There are plenty of spaces to be together, or find some peaceful time alone. The exceptional grove of palm trees surrounding the home is nothing short of good for the soul and we hope you will leave counting the days until you return!

Tricks and tips to get the optimal vacation rental experience:

How to get the best value:

  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months in coastal NC. Book your Wilmington, NC vacation in the Fall or Spring to get the benefit of warm weather while saving money and avoiding crowded roads, restaurants, and activities. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a Wilmington, NC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation on the coast? Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are great times to gather with friends and family at the beach.
  • Reserve your vacation home as soon as possible. Rental schedules usually open 12 months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many families reserve their Summer rentals during Winter holiday gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Some hosts offer discounts or promotional rates for active duty military and veterans. Remember to ask your host or property manager if special offers are available for your family.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners frequently offer customers an option to buy vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which normally costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any days missed as a result of personal medical-related catastrophes or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or additional gas expenses. Trip insurance might be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen occurs. Ask the property owner for program terms and fees.
  • Look for your local visitors guide when you check-in. If your rental home doesn't have one, you can find them at local shops and fuel stations. In addition to great local stories, travel guide magazines contain coupons for nearby accommodations and attractions.

Narrow your rental Search:

  • Start by selecting vacation dates and a budget.
  • Note the number bedrooms and the bed configuration your group requires. Coastal Living at its finest. has 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Wilmington, NC rentals search.
  • Specific descriptions of bedrooms and bed counts is regularly accessible on booking websites. Otherwise, reach out to the property management company before reserving the vacation home. Note that most property listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds. You will need to establish what is right for your vacation group.
  • Are you visiting for a single attraction? Use a map search to locate nearby properties.
  • Suitable accessibility can make or break a vacation for guests with disabilities. Make certain to inquire about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.
  • Are you bringing the family pet? Although a number of vacation homes allow pets or animals, guidelines and costs vary per property. Allowable pet type, breed, and size are often limited. Make sure to ask before booking, and study your agreement! Additional fees or may be applied to your invoice.

More considerations for your visit:

  • Add the host's contact info to your phone. Understand and take a copy of check in/check out procedures.
  • Note any issues with the property at check in, and immediately contact the owner. We especially recommend e-mails and text messages, as they usually contain built-in time stamps that can be beneficial if a dispute is filed.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a hot tub, stereo or kitchen appliance. Contact your host. They are there to help! A brief telephone call can prevent a lot of problems.
  • Be a good neighbor. Frequently, nearby homes are filled by permanent residents. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking rules reduces conflict and allows everyone to enjoy their day.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Neighbors can often help. Who better to ask where to get the best seafood, have a great night out, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • Lock your rental while you're out. Keep your property safe!
  • Double-check every room of the vacation property to make sure that you've packed all of your family's items at departure. Check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Inspect the rental a final time and scan for any damage. We recommend inspecting the property with the property manager whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the property manager isn't available, remember to take photos and video of the property to record its condition at check-out.
  • After your trip, leave a review! Hosts rely on excellent reviews to stimulate more reservations. They'll be grateful for your review. Alternatively, if something went wrong, other vacationing families will be thankful you shared your review and help them have the best future vacation. Please be fair with your feedback If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the host had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to remedy it.

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.
