South Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-11)

INN DENIAL is an awesome beach property...and frankly, we're reluctant to rent it. So take advantage of this opportunity to stay in a terrific house, in a terrific location....Inn Denial.

This 4BR/4.5BA property with direct beach access includes 2 golf carts, choice of Shoals or BHI club membership, king beds, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi internet service, wine cooler, ping-pong table, bicycles, outdoor dining area, kids' sandbox, hot-water/enclosed outdoor shower. You'll find this house to be more than accommodating for up to 11 sun-drenched guests...but BE FOREWARNED: No time is a good time for leaving Bald Head Island...So plan accordingly and receive a 5% discount for multiple (consecutive) week rentals.

Check out our website for more pictures and information.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've been visiting BHI for decades...and have always held a preference for

the Flora's Bluff / Killegray Ridge area along South beach. In 2004 we

purchased this property with no intention of placing it on the rental market.

For that reason, you'll find no comments (to date) in this guest book. For that

same reason, you can rest assured that we have taken great care of and made

many improvements to our "home away from home." As Wilmington

residents, we've seized every opportunity to make Inn Denial a comfortable /

kid friendly place to build memories. And as Wilmington residents, should

you need us for anything, you can take comfort in knowing that we are only

an hour away.

We welcome you to our escape from reality. We only ask that you respect,

appreciate, savor and enjoy it as much as we do!

We would love to return to Inn Denial tomorrow! We had two families stay in this warm, clean and very organized house. Kids from age 2-17 were comfortable, relaxed and very busy. The house offers several unique activities including outdoor ping pong, basketball, a huge sandbox and a very fun "ring and hook" game. The beach is beautiful and is an easy walk down the board walk path. We all loved getting around the island in the two golf carts. There were so many things to explore! It was nice to have the club membership, but we preferred hanging out at Inn Denial because it was so comfortable and relaxing. Thank you Ron and Katharine for paying attention to every little detail and being available for us!

Katharine and Ron,

I wanted to thank you both for a wonderful vacation! We've been coming to Bald Head For 5 years (Jenny and Brian have been coming for 6) and this is, by far, the best home we've stayed in. You have thought of everything. From the clothesline to all the laminated notes around the house to the play area inside, the sandbox, ping pong table and gas grill, you have home that is both beautiful and functional :)

I loved sitting out on the porch upstairs looking over the ocean and watching the pelicans flying overhead. You know, I grew up in West Palm Beach, FL, but I never really appreciated the beach until I started coming to Bald Head. Plus, my 42nd birthday was on Thursday. I can't think of a nicer place to spend my special day than at Bald Head Island drinking "fun" drinks with my toes in the sand.

Just wanted to let you both know how much we enjoyed ourselves and your hospitality.

Perfect Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous, relaxing place to vacation! The house is beautiful. The fully appointed kitchen, kids' toys and books, and ping pong table provided our group with a great place to unwind after a day at the beach. We loved being seconds away from the beach during the day and stargazing from the upstairs porch to the sound of crashing waves at night. The owners are helpful and responsible. We didn't want to leave Bald Head Island, or Inn Denial!

You can't go wrong w/Inn Denial

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a great weeks' stay at Inn Denial. Great hosts (very responsive and professional) who have thought of just about everything one would need in a beach house. Well located house, very bright, spacious, clean and comfortable. We had two families and did not feel the least bit crowded. It's maybe a two minute walk to the beach via a wooden boardwalk system and the beach is gorgeous and never crowded; great to shower off outside in the private outdoor shower after a long day in the sun. Lots of toys and games for the younger set, especially the preschool aged boys. Brand new washer/dryer was a nice plus. We would definitely rent it again.

Great Week at BHI

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to BHI and we'll be challenged to find a better home than this one. The location is great, both on the beach and not too far a ride to the ferry, the clubs, and the stores. The home is kept very clean and organized, and every detail was thought out for us. The golf carts were new, as were the bikes, and the outdoor shower was such a huge plus as came in from the beach. The owner runs the process professionally which is so reassuring when one is taking a full week vacation! Thank you.

Inn Denial also has a sandbox in a great contained area very near the house, perfect for small children.
