Great Property
The Royal Tern is a great property if considering a short or long term get away . Residence and its layout was ideal for our family and our girls friends. More than enough space to share or escape as desired . Screened in porch was ideal for morning coffee and entertaining at night . All necessities for a weeks stay were on hand kitchen wise . Great property if looking for a property with character and close proximity to east beach .

Beautifully decorated, great home
Our two families fell in love with this charming home. It was beautifully decorated, yet comfortable enough for our children to make themselves at home. Edie and Katie made sure we had everything we needed to be well-prepared for our first trip to Bald Head Island. We loved reading on the porch, playing games around the dining room table, driving the golf carts around the island, and flying the kites at the beach. We can't wait to return!

Highly recommend!
This was our first time staying at the Royal Tern, second time in BHI. The house was fantastic- from the large and airy kitchen and main living space, to the bedrooms, down to the littlest beachy details. The outdoor shower, screened in porch with fan and the custom bunk beds were also huge pluses. Comfortably slept our family of 4 and our friend’s family of 3. We’re also huge fans of the location - the house is a few minute’s ride to Shoals, mike’s bites (iykyk) and the Bald Head Island Conservancy. Edie and crew were amazing! We had a little health scare with my 4 year old son and they were super helpful with recommendations on and off the island Highly recommend!

Beautiful home
The house was just beautiful. It was clean with great furnishings and supplies. The kitchen was perfect for cooking and eating take out. I was so thankful for the condiments, coffee, plastic wrap and starter supply of household items. The location was a short walk, bike ride or golf cart ride to the beach. We enjoyed the Shoals Club most days which was close by. The neighborhood was very quiet and we loved it. Katie and Edie were very welcoming and responsive during our stay. Thank you! This was our first visit th BHI and we will certainly be back.
