INFORMATION FOR GUESTS AND RENTERS


Welcome to Middle Island.  It is a special place - we hope you enjoy your time here.  Below are a few common sense rules taken from our covenants and by-laws designed to preserve the natural environment and protect our common amenities. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Middle Island Beach Access and Parking:

Our private beach access is located near the intersection of Cape Creek Road and East Beach Drive.  Street parking is prohibited on Middle Island.   Four-person golf carts may use the parking area across the street from the beach access gate.  For safety reasons, six-person carts must use the overflow lot 150’ to the north. 

Please keep the beach access gate closed and locked at all times.  Please keep children and pets on the walkway and remember the Village imposes a $500 fine for walking on the dunes.  Village ordinance and MIPOA policies prohibit leaving any beach equipment (chairs, umbrellas, surfboards, etc.) under the stairs, on the beach or dunes.

Bald Head Creek Docks:

Middle Island property owners, their overnight house guests, and renters staying in a Middle Island home may use the floating dock near the maintenance building on Cape Creek Road for crabbing and fishing.  Only property owners and their overnight house guests (not renters or day visitors) may launch canoes and kayaks from this dock.  Please keep the gate to the floating dock closed and locked at all times.  Please do not store or leave unattended canoes, kayaks or other equipment on the dock.  Children must be accompanied by an adult. 

Middle Island property owners, their overnight house guests, and renters staying in a Middle Island home may use the small fixed dock near 7 Cape Creek Road to launch canoes and kayaks.  Please do not store or leave any unattended equipment on the dock. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Dockage is only available for boats owned by a property owner who has paid the appropriate supplemental annual assessment.   Renters and guests may not dock a boat at any Middle Island dock (Property owners who wish to dock overnight at the floating dock should contact the Association in advance. Dockage is limited to a single boat less than 14’ and 20hp.)

Middle Island Sanctuary and the Cape Creek Dock:

Due to the developer’s deed restrictions, only Middle Island property owners and guests accompanied by the property owner may go beyond the locked gate to the Sanctuary.  Please do not store or leave unattended canoes, kayaks or other equipment on the Cape Creek dock.  Renters and unaccompanied guests may not have keys to the Sanctuary gate and may not go beyond the gate, except as members of a guided nature tour offered by the BHI Conservancy (call 910.457.0089 or email email@bhic.org

Note: For your safety and to reduce dust in the air, please observe the 12 mph speed limit on our gravel roads.  Thank you!
