Just finished renovations!!! Overlooking the 9th tee box on the golf course with south beach access #9 on the other side of the home just across the street.

Tern Back Time is Located on the secluded Bald Head Island with no cars (golf carts only), and a nature preserve, it is an ideal hideaway. The home is mins. from the marina/harbour, BHI Club and a beach access #9 on the western side by the Cape Fear River. Located on a cul-de-sac, it is a peaceful location, great for little ones who want to practice their bicycle riding skills!

You can see our proximity to the beach on the aerial photo. (Our favorite beach accesses for kids and swimming are also not far away, on the southern side near the BHIC) This website gives a great breakdown of your beach options! http://units.coastalurge.com...

Do not wait as they process these in advance and will cap temporary memberships! We will need to authorize your temporary membership under our full Lifestyle membership.

Be sure that you submit the form to the club in advance, as there may be a fee for requests with less than 5 days notice.

Bald Head Island Club- https://www.bhiclub.net/guest-... (this one is finished online)
A few notes about Club changes for 2022. They have changed dates when renters can access the clubs. Some dates/times are for permanent members only. Also, they capped how many temporary rental memberships are available, so request this ASAP before they sell out! Payment is now based on per person instead of per bedroom. Lastly, they are now capping the number of individual temporary members per home, and our home's cap is 10. If you have more than 10 guests, not all can use the club. I strongly suggest contacting the club to ask your questions and get clarification. Unfortunately, we do not know all of the details, and calling or emailing the club will be best at lobby@bhiclub.net. Once you make guest membership then you can contact diningres@bhiclub.net to make dining reservations during your stay.

Visit the club websites and see if the BHI Conservancy to learn more about the island's various pools, golf, kids camps, kids dissection classes, and more! Our family has really adored their amenities. The historic Old Baldy light home also offers a chance for a birds eye view of the island, while water crafts are also an option for those who appreciate sailing, kayaking and more.https://www.bhic.org/

Wilmington, NC vacation rental tips:

When to go & When to reserve a rental home:

  • Book your rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules usually open 12 months in advance (or in September just after the Summer season ends). Many families book their Summer vacation rentals during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve get-togethers. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Summertime is the most expensive season in Bald Head Island. Book your rental property in Fall or Spring months to get the benefit of beautiful 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 on the coast? Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are great times to gather with loved ones at the beach.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property manager or host if your family qualifies for a price reduction or discount.
  • Property management companies usually offer renters an option to obtain vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which will generally cost between 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed vacation time as a result of medical-related catastrophes or weather, as well as evacuation charges, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance can be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your host for more information.
  • Find a copy of your local Wilmington, NC area magazine when you check-in. If your rental home doesn't have one, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great local stories, visitors guide magazines have discounts for local tours, shops, and attractions.

Filter your rental search:

  • Select a designated group leader, choose your dates, and choose a spending budget.
  • Determine how many beds and the bed configuration your group requires. Bald Head Island Beach House on golf course beach access #9 Sleeps up to 15 has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Wilmington, NC rentals search.
  • Precise details about bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is normally accessible online. If not, call the property management company before you book the vacation home. Note that most property listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds.
  • Do your family pets travel with you? Although a number of vacation homes allow pets or animals, guidelines and costs vary per property. Type of pet, size and breeds may be limited. Remember to ask your host before booking, and study your rental agreement! Additional fees or applied to your invoice.
  • If there's a specific Wilmington, NC beach you long to visit, look for homes that are either near by, or those that cater especially to your desires.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for guests with disabilities. Confirm all required amenities are available and included before reserving a rental.

More considerations for your visit:

  • Review check in & check out procedures before leaving home. Save the instructions to your smartphone, and take a printed copy.
  • Hosts are there to help! Don't be shy to ask any questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Lock your rental property while you're away! Don't let burglars spoil your holiday.
  • At Check-in, note any damages to the rental property and immediately contact the owner. Keep records of all coorespondence.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like loud vacationers bothering your life at home. Apply the golden rule for best judgement. Happy residents may even recommend great beaches and scenic spots you would have never otherwise known!
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Locals can frequently help. Who better to ask where to get the best breakfast in town, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for fishing?
  • On check-out day, take a final walk-through to make sure you have not forget any personal items. Re-check garages, decks, and cabinets for hidden items. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Walk through the rental a final time and look for any damage. We recommend inspecting the property with the property manager whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the host isn't available, take video of the property to record its condition at check-out.
  • Remember to leave a review! Property managers rely on excellent ratings to stimulate more bookings. They'll be grateful for your review. Alternatively, if something wasn't as described, other families will appreciate that you share your review and help them have the best future vacation. Please be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the host had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded expeditiously to remedy it.
