Welcome to East Wind.

When I was a teenager in the mid 70's we would boat over to Bald Head Island, up Cape Creek and go ashore near Bluff Island. It was a fast hike on a path first made in the Civil War, thru the maritime forest to body surf on East Beach. We had so much fun playing in the emerald green waters. The waves were ideal, a impressive Conch found with even a short walk down the beach. Bald Head Island was undiscovered country: handsome, wild, an adventure!

Guests are amazed by the privacy and beauty of our ocean front property. A 500 foot driveway leads to East Wind. Once there one will be surrounded by the natural beauty of Bald Head. East Beach to the front, Cape Creek to the back and a 40 acre private nature preserve to appreciate exclusively. Guests see broad natural vistas like one would see visiting a ranch out west, except it's at the Beach!

Watch the sunrise over East Beach, savor a glass of wine while the sun sets over Cape Creek, or if one is so bold, take the private nature trail and see the Bald Head I grew up with in the 70's: handsome, wild, an adventure.

The beach experience at East Wind is unmatched. With private beach access you're just steps away from the best beach on Bald Head, East Beach. The prevailing currents on East Beach keep the muddy Cape Fear water to the south, making the waters on the beach a beautiful emerald color on most days. Also, the prevailing southwesterly wind during the summer make for beautiful wave action. The wind blows against the waves holding the crest longer. Since East Wind is at the end of East Beach drive, our property provides the most private beach experience on Bald Head Island. It's spectacular.

If one likes history, you will feel right at home at East Wind. Our bungalow is decorated with period antiques and has an extensive seashell collection. A cannon from 1525 guards the driveway (earliest known example of a bronze cast cannon recovered from a new world wreck. Seen in picture below). Four bedrooms, each with a private bathroom, are decorated in soft pastel colors. Three bedrooms have a queen bed. One bedroom has a double bed. Each bedroom occupies a corner of the home and provides both ocean and marsh vistas! The middle of the home has an open floor plan with a kitchen overlooking Cape Creek, a dining room in the center of the home, and living area with a huge flat screen TV overlooks East Beach.

A additional downstairs playroom makes for a great place to land in between trips to East Beach. The downstairs area has a nice living area, sizable flat screen TV, bathroom, and foosball table. This room was designed to have fun in! (Bonus playroom is connected to the home by outside stairs so it is suitable for older kids or supervised younger kids.)

East Wind has three golf carts, two 4 passenger golf carts, and one two passenger golf cart 'truck' great for grocery store runs, four bicycles, 6 beach chairs, paper products, linens, wine / drink refrigerator etc. Temporary membership in the Shoals Club or BHI club is available for separate purchase by guest.

East Wind is a bungalow and is ideal for modest events of 6 or less. We do not accept reservations for events bigger than 6.

How to book the best Bald Head Island rental home experience:

How to get the best value:

  • Some hosts offer rate reductions for active duty military and veterans. Ask your property manager if special offers are available for your family.

  • Determine how many bedrooms and the configuration your group requires. Ocean Front East Beach \/ 40 Acre Private Nature Preserve has 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed types is commonly available on booking pages. If they are not listed, email or call the property management company before you reserve the vacation property. Note that most property listings specify the max. guest capacity, which often includes pull-out couches and bunk beds. You will need to establish what configuration is best for your trip.
  • Visiting for a single event? If so, use a map search to find nearby properties.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. Make certain to ask about wheel chair accessibility, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs.
  • If your group is vacationing with pets, you must reserve a pet-friendly rental. Get specifics on breed, weight, and type requirements. Often, property owners charge pet deposits and fees.

  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Residents can usually point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to book the best tours, have a great night out, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Lock your rental while you are out and about. Protect your property!
  • On check-out day, take a walk-through to make sure you have not forget anything. Remember to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden treasure. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Did your family have a wonderful time? Many rental managers make it easy for vacationers to provide feedback.
