About Allen and Carol Auchenpaugh

In the spring of 2000, we searched the Internet for a great place to spend a weekend. What we discovered was Bald Head Island, our getaway destination for love, laughter and fun with our family and friends. We then found ourselves dreaming of living on this magical island someday.

In 2014, we came to BHI determined to make our dream a reality. Days of touring the island finally brought us to what is now our home... Our “Key to Searenity.” It is located in Keepers Landing, a small collection of homes that allows residents (homeowners and guests alike) to enjoy both the “community feel” as well as close proximity to all the great locations on BHI.

Blackbeard and Bonnet (yes… we named our two golf carts) transport us to the beaches, Shoals Club, BHI Country Club and other great island destinations within minutes.

We hope you choose our home to spend time making memories with your family and friends. We won’t be surprised if you fall in love with BHI too, and someday become our neighbor!

Exceeded expectations - great home

  • 5 of 5
This home was a perfect location for my wife, two young boys, and myself. We truly felt like we were staying in a friend's home, not a rental unit. The owners really care about the place. The decor is great -- reality is much better than the photos. The owners also address so many great details to ensure a great stay -- quality mattresses, sheets, towels, kitchen utensils/appliances, beach supplies, etc. Highly recommend.

Delightful property

  • 5 of 5
I love this house. It is charming, clean, and has great decor! It's in a wonderful location right near a lovely park and the conservancy. I stayed there with my toddler son and mother, and it was perfect. There were even toys and a bike for my 3 1/3 year old. I can't say enough good things about it!

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from our first time at Bald Head Island. This property was everything we had hoped for. The owners were very wonderful to deal with. They were very helpful in getting us ready to come. The house and furnishings were beautiful. The pictures are very accurate as to how well maintained the home is. We would definitely recommend this house and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Wanted to mention that the views are great and it is very private.

Outstanding Home and Value

  • 5 of 5
Having been to Bald Head Island several times before, I was a little surprised at the relatively low cost of this rental compared to some others. When we arrived, however, we were THOROUGHLY impressed with this home. It is ideal for a smaller family (2 adults and 1-2 children). It is in immaculate condition and extremely well located relative to the Cape Fear Station area. The owners were extremely easy to deal with and very responsive to any questions and requests.

You simply cannot go wrong with this rental. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this one to anyone going to Bald Head!!!

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5
Great home - glad we found you on VRBO! Perfect location and perfect size for our family of 4. We loved the Shoals Club as well as our evening golf cart rides. Thanks for the check-in document as well - it was very helpful in figuring out what to pack. We hope to be back next year!

Wonderful BHI Stay

  • 5 of 5
We came to Bald Head for our 25th wedding anniversary and couldn't have picked a nicer home. We were so very pleased with the home, its location, the cleanliness and all of the charm. The owners were wonderful to deal with, very prompt in any responses and even provided us a complimentary bottle of champagne to celebrate our annivesary. We plan on coming back in September with our grandchildren!
