  • Private vacation home

10 Sumner’s Crescent, aka O’ACES, was refreshed in 2021, and features a new open kitchen and living area. The kitchen has granite counters, a full height granite backsplash, and waterfall edge. The counter has seating for 5. It has a high-end commercial, vintage style, iLve 5 burner gas range with a convection gas/electric oven and warming drawer. It also has a GE cafe French door, freezer bottom refrigerator, with an ice maker. The kitchen has a enormous stainless under-mount sink, a Quiet Bosch dishwasher with silverware shelf, and a garbage disposal.

The main home has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a laundry room on the first floor. There is also a long screened-in porch running the length of the back of the home with a door to it from each of those bedrooms.
The second floor is open concept, with the kitchen, dining area (comfortably seating up to 8), family room, gas (remote operated) fireplace, and game area. There is also a half bath & a deck with lounge chairs on the upper level.
The home has a separate crofter above the golf cart garage with an additional bedroom, bathroom & closet/mini-kitchenette. The crofter has its own deck with a seating area, shaded under an ancient oak tree.

The main home has a tankless hot water heater so that you, and everybody in your family, can take a long warm/hot shower on vacation without fighting over the hot water. A rare treat!

O’ACES is located adjacent to the BHI Conservancy, right by Mike’s Bites & Captain Charlie’s. It is just under 2 blocks to the Beach, between Beach Access 35 & Beach Access 36.
You can Walk to the Shoal’s Club, Beach Access 39, East Beach, Cape Fear Station, and much more!

2 of the bedrooms have King beds.
1 bedroom has a queen bed and 3 twin beds, bunked. There are also 2 blowup twin beds, and a portable crib.

The home has a separate garage, with 2 golf carts. One golf cart is supplied in the rental rate. There is an additional golf cart available for rent on a daily or weekly basis.
Both golf carts are 4 seaters. One is a 2012 Club Car & the other is a 2023 Bentelli with a back up camera & a cell phone charger.
There is an additional washer & dryer in the closet in the garage. We find it’s Great for sandy towels & bathing suits or Crofter laundry.

There is a private/enclosed outdoor shower behind the garage with plenty of hooks for all of your bathing suits, waders and towels.
There are other goodies in the garage and storage area behind it that you can borrow. (Bikes, a bicycle tire pump, golf cart blankets, beach chairs, beach toys, body boards, casting nets, crabbing nets, etc.)

We are members of the Shoal’s Club, so you can buy a temporary membership to it for your stat. Please note, that both clubs have added an administrative fee of $100 if your temporary membership is not processed 7-10 days before your arrival. Starting in 2022, the Clubs are now charging per person, per week for anyone 6 years and older using the Club (instead of the per bedroom charge covering the home). In high season & many holidays, the Shoal’s Club is closed to temporary members on Mondays & the BHI Club is closed to temporary members on Saturdays & Sundays. Shoal’s Club paperwork can be done directly on their website, and you can pay the club directly with your credit card at the time you sign up or by phone at least 7 days before you arrive. The Club’s website has information about the services, activities, and the dining options they offer. It is updated fairly regularly & changes frequently.

We were hoping to do Friday to Friday or Sunday to Sunday units in order to avoid Saturday to Saturday units which are so (maybe too) trendy. We thought many guests might want to avoid the most fashionable turnover day, for ease of ferry and tram reservations/booking, etc. The lines for the ferries are much more busy on Saturday. However, we are flexible if you prefer Saturday. We encourage you to consider Friday to Friday, another weekday, or Sunday.

Starting with the first week of June 2023, the ferry ticketing system has become electronic, with the ability to make reservations for each ferry. Here is a link to their website and frequently asked questions:

You can also purchase electronic tickets by downloading their app, found by searching “bald head island” in the App Store. The tickets can be stored in your Apple wallet.

If you are flying into RDU or Wilmington ILM, and don’t want to rent a car just to leave it at the ferry parking lot (and pay for that daily parking), we have a list of drivers that can take you and your friends/family to and from ILM or RDU and the ferry. If you forget anything, or want to pick up some items that are not convenient to fly with, we have drivers that will stop on the way.

We can’t wait to welcome you to our home.
We welcome any questions you may have.

And now, “Things we thought we’d never need to write in the home instructions”
for $1,000, Alex:
1. Do not sit on the roof of the home or the crofter.
2. GOLF CARTS: Do not drive the golf carts on the beach or off road. Please be very mindful of the tires. Golf cart tires are not meant to be driven on streets in general, and there has been a lot of construction on the island lately, so there are nails and other sharp debris; drive carefully. You are responsible for any popped tires, and any unusual wear and tear to the tires. You must have a valid drivers’ license, and be 16 or older to operate a golf cart. Do not drive golf carts or bicycles under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Please hose off the golf carts when you are finished with them and remove any trash.
3. There is a hose by the garage, and another one by the front door, for your feet, your kids’s feet, your dog’s feet, and anything else that went to the beach that is not going to stay in the garage or outside.
4. Beach toys & Garage items: please feel complimentary to use any beach toys, beach chairs, beach towels, casting nets, etc. that you find, but please return them hosed off and where you found them. We are happy to share these items with you, but we can’t continue, if you don’t respect them. In the cooler months, there is a bin full of golf cart blankets to the left of the carts in the garage.
5. Please respect our games, books, china, crystal, and nice linens. We want to share these items with you, but we can only continue to do so if you return them how you found them in generally the same place. It’s simple if you take a photo.
6. If you choose to rearrange the furnishings, please put it back how you found it.
7. Please do not put food on the walls or under furnishings or beds.
8. All recycling should be taken to the recycling center by the dump and Public Safety, near the Market. Recycling is not picked up by the trash people on Bald Head Island. If you fill the outside trash bins, please go to the dump, which is located by Public Safety. The trash people will not pick up any excess trash.

How to find the best rental home experience:

Cost saving strategies:

  • Summer months are the most expensive season along the coast of NC. To book the best vacation home within budget, we strongly suggest booking in the Fall or Spring. You'll enjoy lower rental rates, better selection, warm weather and the absence of large crowds at your favorite Wilmington, NC 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 and Christmas are great times to gather with loved ones at your favorite beach.
  • Reserve your vacation rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules often open 12 months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many families reserve their Summer vacation rentals during Winter holiday get-togethers. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property owner whether your group qualifies for a price reduction or discount.
  • Property management companies typically offer guests an option to purchase vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which will generally cost between 1% - 5% of the booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed vacation time as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel overnight or extra gas expenses. Trip insurance can be a a life-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your property manager for additional information.
  • Often, management companies supply Wilmington, NC area visitors guides which include money-saving offers, either offered independently by local companies, or by way of a partnership between the property management company and the business itself. You can also find visitors guide and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

Selecting the best rental home in Bald Head Island:

  • First and foremost, have your group choose a vacation week and a max budget.
  • Decide how many beds and what type of bedroom configuration you need. Renovated Luxury home Sumner’s Crescent Walk to Mikes Bites, E. Beach & Shoal’s has 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our rentals search.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed counts is regularly accessible online. If not, contact the host before you book the property. Remember that most property listings specify the max. guest capacity, which usually includes pull out couches in living rooms. You will need to establish what configuration is suitable for your family.
  • Is your group looking for particular amenities? Most websites include search filters with amenity lists. Filtering by amenity will allow you to quickly find the best rental home.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for the less-mobile. Confirm all necessary amenities are included before reserving a rental.
  • Traveling with pets? Many vacation homes allow animals, but guidelines and restrictions apply. Allowable pet type, breed, and size are often limited. Make sure to ask before booking, and study your agreement! Additional pet fees or charges might be applied to your agreement.

Have a fantastic stay:

  • We recommend storing the host's contact information in your smartphone.
  • Record any issues with the rental during check in, and immediately send them to the host. We especially recommend e-mails and text messages, as they usually contain time stamps that are useful if there is a dispute.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a fireplace, A/V setup or kitchen appliance. Contact your host. They are there to help! A brief phone call can prevent lots of issues.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like unpleasant visitors disrupting your life at home. Employ the golden rule for best judgement. Happy residents may even recommend great beaches and attractions you would've never otherwise known!
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Residents can usually help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to grab the best tacos, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for fishing?
  • Lock your vacation home while you're out. Protect the owner's property and your stuff!
  • Upon check-out, complete a walk-through to confirm you did not forget any personal items. Make sure to check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden treasure. Clean the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Go through the rental one final time and look for any damage. We advise inspecting the property with the host whenever you can. If the host is not available, ensure that you take video of the property to record its condition at check-out.
  • Did your group have a great time? Many rental websites make it easy for clients to provide comments. If your rental and/or property management company was terrific, they would love to hear about it. If anything was wrong and they failed to correct it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make a note as part of your review.
