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, savor 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 appreciate. The kitchen is entirely 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 comfortably 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 gorgeous front porch that is typically shaded and features a bench, two chairs and a hammock (our kids adore the hammock). The yard is fenced in, and the huge 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 T.V.s (1st floor living room, 2nd floor kids' bedroom, Crofter), each with a streaming device (Roku or Amazon Fire Stick). Subscriptions to streaming services not supplied.

*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 bags. 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.

Tricks and tips to get the perfect vacation home experience:

Cost saving strategies:

  • Summer months are the most expensive season in the Wilmington, NC area. To book the best rental home within your budget, we strongly suggest booking in Spring or Fall. You'll benefit from lower rental rates, better selection, warm weather and the absence of giant crowds at the beach and popular attractions. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to book a beach front rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during the Summer months. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a Wilmington, NC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday near the ocean? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with family and friends at the beach.
  • Book your rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules usually open twelve months in advance (or in September just after the Summer season ends). Many groups reserve their Summer rental homes during holiday gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Some hosts and property managers offer discounts for veterans. Ask your property manager if rate reductions are available for your family before you book.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners often offer guests an option to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance, which normally costs between 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed trip time as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or additional gas expenses. Trip insurance might be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your host for specifics.
  • Look for your local Wilmington, NC visitors guide magazine upon arrival. If your rental doesn't have one, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great local articles, travel guides contain offers and deals for local tours, shops, and attractions.

How to choose the best rental:

  • Begin by selecting vacation dates and a spending budget.
  • Decide how many bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration your family requires. Gorgeous Marsh Views! has 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our search.
  • Specific descriptions of bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is regularly accessible on booking websites. Otherwise, email the host before reserving the vacation property. Remember that most properties list the maximum guest capacity, which typically includes pull-out couches and bunk beds. You will need to work out what bed configuration is suitable for your vacation group.
  • If there's a specific Wilmington, NC destination you crave, browse rentals that are either nearby, or those that cater especially to your desires.
  • Suitable accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for persons with disabilities. Make certain to ask about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.
  • Some properties allow pets, and some do not. Acceptable types of pet, weight and breeds may be restricted, and added fees may apply. Ask your host about pets before booking.

More tips for your stay:

  • Take a copy of the property manager's contact number and arrival/departure procedures for your rental property. We recommend storing the host's information in your smartphone.
  • Upon check-in, record any damages to the property and immediately contact the property manager. Keep records of all correspondence in case a dispute arises.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a garage door opener, elevator or thermostat. Contact your host. They are there to help! A brief telephone call can prevent quite a few difficulties.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking policies can make a stay more pleasurable. You'll magnify your chance to make local friends, and resident neighbors are usually a terrific source for finding the best local scenic spots.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Neighbors can usually help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to launch your kayaks, have a great night out, or the best spots for bird watching?
  • Protect the owner (and your stuff!) by locking the rental while you are out, just like you would at home.
  • At departure, complete a walk-through to confirm you did not forget anything. Make sure to check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden treasure. Clean the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
  • Remember to leave a review! Property managers rely on great ratings to propel more bookings. They'll be much obliged for your review. Alternatively, if something went wrong, other vacationing families will be thankful you shared your review find their best rental home. Be fair with your review. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the host had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded quickly to fix 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.
