Stroll along the trails and beaches to witness nature’s own artistry at its finest. 

Spring is a time of migration, and Bald Head Island serves as a pitstop for numerous bird species on their journey north. Birdwatchers will be delighted by the sight of warblers, tanagers, and other migratory birds making a temporary home on the island. There’s no better place than Middle Island to spend your dusk’s and dawns birdwatching, check out Beach Tree or Cape Creek for prime aviation appreciation. The Bald Head Island Conservancy also organizes guided birding tours, providing enthusiasts with the opportunity to witness these winged wonders up close.

Lay out on the deck and enjoy the spring temperatures which are comfortably mild, and the soft, sandy shores that invite you to relax and rejuvenate. Take leisurely walks along the coastline, collecting seashells and enjoying the soothing sounds of waves breaking against the shore.

As the island awakens from its winter slumber, so do the outdoor activities. Spring is the perfect time to explore the island’s diverse ecosystems through kayaking, paddleboarding, or biking.

Fall is almost here. But Bald Head is as vibrant as ever. Most people associate a Bald Head vacation with the summertime, as they rightfully should. It’s a wonderful place to take your kids during the hot summer months with school out and nothing to do, go cool off at the beach or the pool with a cocktail in hand. But what if I told you that Fall, to some, is the best time to visit BHI.

It’s indescribable the feeling a fall on Bald Head can give you. It’s true magic. The beauty of the Southeastern United States is that truly the temperatures don’t drop until mid to late October. So for those looking to visit in late September or early October you’ve still got your beach days. Here’s the other plus, you can put up your beach umbrella that you rented from Beach and Baby or Coastal Urge and find a plot on the beach and might never see another fellow patron for hours, minus the few dog owners walking past getting their pups salty and primed to be groomed at Salty Paws.

Let’s say it’s a little too chilly for the beach. Have you ever had a hot toddy in a light fall coat and walked the island and listened to the birds chirp and watched the leaves change? It’s magical. Have you had a bonfire on the beach surrounded by friends and family telling stories new and old? It’s perfect, be sure you get your permit here, then strike a match and make some s’mores! The island is quiet and serene. The island itself gives off the sense of relaxation after a busy summer. Rejuvenating itself back to its status quo.

Fall is the perfect time for empty nesters, newlyweds who maybe just had their first addition to the family (dog or human), big families looking to spend some quality time together, or anybody looking to get that one last drop of vacation serenity. We’ve got every different house one might need this fall! Check them out here.

Now we’d like to highlight a fantastic comment one of our renters gave us this summer. We think it perfectly exemplifies the type of service we at Tiffany’s Beach Properties aim to achieve; this is from Bruce who stayed in our property 10 Coquina; “I’d heard “good things” about Tiffany over the yrs and must say that I found her reputation and that of her organization to be absolutely consistent with what I’d been told. We had a couple of very minor issues early in our stay and when I’d made Chasie, Tiffany’s Property Coordinator, aware of them she addressed them immediately. More specifically, Chasie acted with the kind of urgency and follow up that one would expect and hope for, particularly with a high end rental, but that’s often not received. I believe this experience is a direct reflection on Chasie (and Chris who addressed one of the issues) and Tiffany’s commitment to the folks who rent the homes she represents. Just well done on all fronts!” Thanks Bruce! 

We hope to see you all this fall and next summer. We’ll let you know when rates are set and ready for booking!


So you’ve booked your vacation in one of our amazing houses. Now you’re thinking what the heck do I do? How do I make sure everybody is having fun? Well first let me say, relax, you’re on island time, it’s near impossible to be bored when you’re surrounded by the serenity and beauty that is Bald Head Island. People have been vacationing here for over 40 years, and with each year Bald Head has grown to be a place of fantasy for all who venture out to this little coastal NC oasis. 

Once you arrive, you’ll take a tram to your beautiful Tiffany’s property that has been double checked and triple checked by our amazing team to ensure the property is ready and up to our high standards for you to enjoy your vacation. If you need anything or have questions about your property don’t hesitate to call Chasie our Property Coordinator 910-470-6511, who will be more than happy to assist in any way she can! 

Are you hungry after your long journey? Most likely. Are you thirsty after the stress of driving and packing and wrangling the whole family like a herd of unwavering cattle? A Margarita sounds amazing, thank you. We’ve got some recommendations for you in that regard. If you venture back to marina you’ll find Jules Salty Grub and Island Pub, drink delicious cocktails, eat some fantastic food, all while watching sailboats, john boats, yachts, and the ferry travel in and out of the Bald Head Marina. Feel sorrow for the vacationers starting their trek back as you sip an ice cold cerveza or raise a glass to your other compadres as they make their way to their tram to start their vacation with you. 

In the middle of the island there are a few more spots in the shade of the maritime forest. Jailhouse Provisions, from the team that has been a staple on the island for decades, offers a wonderful menu filled with some highlights like the Fried fish or shrimp baskets baskets, wings, and their chicken sandwich, trust us you won’t be disappointed. They also offer a wide selection of draft NC brews for everybody. Add that to the unique aesthetic on the inside and you’re in for a great time for all. 

Room Service, which you most definitely should stop in. Here you’ll find the art and furniture that is missing from your house, all curated by the innovative, vision of the owner Tiffany Williams and her daughter. Walking into Room Service is like walking into any home you dream about in Architectural Digest. Then stroll over and get a glass of wine at Bald Head Bottle, a “neighborhood” spot. The space is a celebration of good wine, the island’s history, and discovering the next best bottle. 

Pick up your groceries at the Maritime Market or maybe get a wood fired pizza pie from Coppers Pizza or now some Chinese food from Side wok; a new and welcome addition to locals. Walk around Maritime Way and check out the many stores that line the streets, Bald Head Blues, Coastal Urge, and the Island Hardware.

Wow, that’s a lot! That’s barely even the tip of the iceberg. Thought you’d be bored? Spend your day on the beach if you’re a little worn out, East Beach is great for playing in the surf and soaking up the rays. South Beach is wonderful for a peaceful no wake lounge. Walk from tip to tip of the island seeing nothing but ocean water and feeling nothing but ocean breeze. During the beach day, if you’re feeling a little peckish, go grab an italian ice and a hot dog from a local favorite Mike’s Bites stationed right by the Bald Head Island Conservancy. Stop in the conservancy and learn all about the ecosystem and biosphere of our island. 

Feeling adventurous, book a surf lesson, through the East Beach Surf Shop, learn from experts who have been teaching kids to surf for many years. Surfing not your thing? Rent a paddleboard from Coastal Urge! Getting a little tired of saltwater this week? Want to explore the one of a kind majesty of the Bald Head Island marsh? Rent a kayak or go on a guided kayak tour through the east beach surf shop as well. 

Depending on the time of the month you’re on the island you may get to witness a Howl at the Moon. During the week there’s some great activities for everybody in your family to enjoy, Trivia and Bingo at the Wisp is fantastic fun for those competitive souls who dare to try. Sign up in advance as the slots book up FAST!!

Climb up the historic Old Baldy. Bring the little ones to the fire station and learn about Public Safety and all the wonderful things they do for the community while your youngin sits in the fire truck. Go on a spooky Ghost Walk and learn the history of the ghouls that make up the night!

Suffice it to say there’s a lot to do on Bald Head. A week doesn’t even seem like enough time. That’s okay, just go ahead and book your vacation for next summer. All that being said, the most important thing to do on Bald Head, is to be with family and friends. There’s something magical about this island. It brings together young and old, new and legacy. Even if you spend your days sitting on the porch of your house, watching the birds pass by, you’re part of the heartbeat of a wonderful community of people. Enjoy this time together, for a brief moment we’re all one. Let the magic of Bald Head take you for a ride, and remember, you’re on island time.


You can probably use a vacation, right? It turns out, your dog probably feels the same way. Let’s face it, life can be hard, in between naps, the hustle and bustle of daily perusing the neighborhood fire hydrants, as well as chasing squirrels and barking at falling leaves. Truth is, dogs can get bored, and when they get bored, they can try to relieve frustration by reimagining how your rug may look with frayed edges.

That’s where Tiffany’s Beach Rentals can help. If you aren’t familiar with Bald Head Island, it is a major dog-loving island. Dogs ride the ferry, just like their two-legged humans. Dogs have to stay outside on the ferry but it’s just like sticking your head out the car window.

Bald Head Island offers miles and miles of dog-friendly beaches. There’s also a dog park and a green space in the marina where canines meet daily and bring their humans to toss balls.

Tiffany’s Beach Properties loves dogs so much, we have promoted Norman, the handsomest golden doodle in the entire world, as head of quality assurance and customer service for all of our guest canines.

We have some amazing dog-friendly houses for your next family vacation. One of particular note is: Anchor Down. A lovely home located right near south beach. This home features a generous covered porch where you can relax, take a nap on the screened porch or have a family supper on the picnic table. Your little partner can bark at the seagulls as they fly over or an occasional passing tram. Take a quick walk down to the beach and go searching for seashells.

Another fantastic home is: Cape Creek. Nestled in the heart of middle island, you will feel like this is your own private retreat — far away from the crowds — with ample indoor and outdoor living space. Thoughtfully decorated, this house truly feels like a home for ‘EVERY’ one in the family.

Closer to the “metropolitan” part of the island, where the lighthouse leads us all to our favorite island getaway is another dog friendly home: Searenity. Searenity is a perennial favorite among many of our season guests. Graced with a wide porch and veranda, this island home is designed to appeal to the senses. It is beautifully built with soaring ceilings and windows and doors everywhere. 

Coming soon –  Salty Paw’s Dog Wash is right by the market and you can stock up on your favorite dog treats at Room Service Home Furnishings.

Give us a bark and we’ll hook you up!

Long weekends are best by the beach.

Father's DayThe long weekend — what a wonderful time for families or couples to get away from the hustle and bustle of their daily lives and visit somewhere new or revisit somewhere fond memories can be rekindled. There are some long weekends on the upcoming horizon. How about a trip over President’s Day weekend when the island is just beginning to wake from its winter nap? Or a romantic getaway for Valentine’s Day? Before you know it, Memorial Day will be right around the corner.  

Here at Tiffany’s, we have properties in many different locations, which will allow you to sample the different island environments. There’s the classic, idyllic beach front house; take for example the beautiful new addition to our rental fleet: Three Little Birds. This majestic home is situated on south beach and you are sure to be blinded by the dazzling ocean views. Perfect for a family looking for some fun in the sun and stargazing at night – listening to the ocean waves crash on the beach.

Somewhere in the forest, underneath the trees and canopy of live oaks rests another one of our gems: See Glass Cottage. It’s a home for those that love to take some shade after a long day at the beach. This year, it’s now dog friendly, so bring along your best friend. See Glass is also perfectly placed in relation to the variety of shopping you can find on the island. Room Service for one; where you can find all your interior design needs or unique gifts. There’s also Island Passage for a cute new outfit  to wear to Jules Salty Grub for a margarita and then on to Jailhouse Provisions for a calabash feast. You’re supremely located to all the hikes through the famous Maritime Forest.

Deep into the place locals call Middle Island, is a house suited for those who really want to get away from it all. Cape Creek. One of Tiffany’s staple properties which guests have been enjoying for year. Jennifer said “[cape creek is the] Best place to go for a true family vacation. Great house with fabulous views and privacy.” Perched on a hill next to the creek with a deck that overlooks the island’s picturesque marsh, where wildlife is abundant from sunrise to sundown. What are you waiting for? Our team is ready to help you find that adventure. With more than 20 years of experience on the island bringing families joy and fun, the homes we offer are carefully chosen for style and location — providing one of the most comprehensive inventories of vacation rentals on the island.

Tiffany can help you determine your perfect spot. You’ll find that many of our listings include a map so you know exactly where the properties are located on the island.

Tip #3: Book through a reputable service.

When it comes to booking a vacation on Bald Head Island, you have many choices. But you’ll receive the best service and peace of mind by booking with a reputable company that has an office on the island and a full-time staff who can respond quickly if the air conditioning goes out or your golf cart has a flat tire.

Fall on Bald Head Island: 3 Reasons to Make it Your Off-Season Getaway

It has been said that nothing compares to fall on Bald Head Island. And who are we to argue with them? Our island is glorious in autumn.

Now, we know you may be wondering something along these lines:

  • Is a fall vacation in a North Carolina beach town crazy?
  • Aren’t all the restaurants and shops closed?
  • Isn’t it too cold?

We’re here to tell you that Bald Head Island is the perfect spot for a fall getaway. Even when the bustling summer season has officially wrapped up, our island still has plenty for folks to see and do.

Plus, the simmering heat starts to fade into seasonably warm days that are still perfect for a day on the beach. In fact, the daily high averages 82 degrees in September and 74 degrees in October. Sounds lovely, right? It is!

In this post, we will uncover a few reasons you should start planning to visit Bald Head Island in the Fall and we’ll share some of our favorite places to stay on the island. Let’s dive in!

3 Reasons to Spend Fall on Bald Head Island

Whether you love the great outdoors or need some major retail therapy, our island has something for everyone—even in the fall. Read on to learn more about what we have to offer.

The Island is still hopping.

Labor Day notoriously marks the end of summer in America, but it doesn’t mean the days are automatically cooler or that everything shuts down. While we do know a thing or two about celebrating Labor Day in style, there is still so much to do after the summer season ends.

The Shopping – If you are a shopaholic, the shops on Bald Head Island offer a range of goods and goodies for all tastes and price ranges. Purchase a sea-inspired piece of art or an aromatic candle that smells of sea and dune at Room Service Home Furnishings or pick up the latest in fashion at Island Passage BHI or Monkees BHI.

The Relaxation – Wake up and treat yourself to yoga on the porch at Island Retreat and Spa or indulge in a full day of personal wellness.

The Eats – If you’re afraid all the island’s restaurants are shuttered for the off-season, fear not. Start your day with a made-to-order almond milk latte at Midway Coffee. For lunch or dinner, Jules’ Salty Grub and Island Pub offers a variety of surf and turf options. Have a margarita or an order of pimento cheese at Jailhouse Provisions. Order a carryout pizza from Delphina and have an easy dinner in your beach rental.

The Happy Hours – If you happen to be visiting us during the 4th Wednesday of the month, you must swing by Old Baldy, our island’s historic lighthouse, for a climb to the top and a spectacular panoramic view of the island.

Cooler temps = more outdoor adventures.

The summers can be so hot that even your favorite outdoor activities are no longer enjoyable. However, fall on Bald Head Island is the perfect blend of warm days sandwiched by cooler mornings and evenings.

If you love to fish (with a license, of course), the waters are still warm enough in the fall to draw large schools of trout and flounder. Want to take a walk? Stroll the half-mile Kent Mitchell Nature Trail for scenic views and wildlife spotting.

If you enjoy biking—and we hope you do because no cars are allowed on the island—cruise around town to discover the sites on a rental from Riverside Adventures.

Learn how to fish with the BHI Conservancy. Their annual fishing school always sells out! And you can’t forget about swimming! The water is still warm enough to wade or plunge into.

Bonfires are better on the beach.

Fall is a popular time for folks to sit around a campfire, spinning spooky tales and eating S’mores. In our humble opinion, the beach is a far better place to sit around the fire. And dare we say: those gooey treats even taste better at the beach. You can schedule your bonfire here!

Places to Stay on BHI in the Fall

Surround yourself in fall vibes and get immersed in island life all at the same time. We’ve rounded up our three favorite places that are still available for rent this fall.  

Change of Venue

This cozy cottage sits on the 5th fairway, featuring high vaulted ceilings and updated amenities. The space seems to double the open floor plan and with three sets of doors to the screened porch, the living space is endless.
