About Nana Smith, Manager, Milliken Family Group LLC
My husband and I have been married for 30 years and have 3 children, all of whom have grown up vacationing in this home on Bald Head Island. We have dedicated renters who return year after year. Everyone takes wonderful care of our house!
Nana Smith, Manager, Milliken Family Group LLC purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Nana Smith, Manager, Milliken Family Group LLC chose South Beach
My husband and I bought a beach house on Bald Head Island because it seemed like the perfect place to create family memories for our children and grandchildren (hopefully, someday!). The kids were quite young when we got it. We wanted a home base for our family that would be with us throughout the career moves and stages of life. 18 years later, it is a decision we do not regret!
What makes this Cottage unique
The island is very secluded and relatively unspoiled. Contact with the outside world seems very limited, and we really lose track of time there. Its an extremely safe place, where our children can just take off in the morning and come back before dark, dirty and exhausted, ready for dinner and bed! Its good, clean fun, the old fashioned kind we grew up with; limited technology, lots of nature and active, outdoor time. Our kids would spend their days fishing, crabbing, clamming, surfing, biking, roller blading, playing touch football on the beach, and playing 'capture the flag' and 'ghost in the graveyard' in our neighborhood with the other kids staying there whenever we are there. Another favorite activity was setting up an old fashioned lemonade stand. Boy did they rake it in on a hot summer day!

Excellent Second Stay at Milliken House
Enjoyed our return visit as much as before. Great house, great location, great property manager!
Very responsive property manager
Great location across from the beach! The property manager was responsive to any questions or requests we had. Would stay again.
A Week in Paradise
The Milliken House was an excellent house for our family's week at Bald Head Island. It is only steps from the South Beach access. The house was clean and amply equipped with everything a family needs for a great week at the beach. The kitchen also contained everything needed.
During our stay, we experienced a mechanical problem with the house. The owners responded immediately by text and quickly sent out a repair team which remedied the problem completely. We could not have been more impressed by the property or the owners. They certainly helped to make our trip a wonderful family experience and memory. I highly recommend this house and we would gladly lease it in the future.
Incredible Vacation Here at this Property.
We have been vacationing at Bald Head Island since 2013, in the spring and fall, and the majority of our stays have been at this property.
The location is perfect, the house is clean and stocked well from kitchen items down to the outdoor gas grill. There are 2 great golf carts to use, and the area outside the house is well maintained - including a front porch with swing chairs and a comfortable hammock. The house is huge, and big enough for several families and is set up for those that have young children as well -high chair and crib for a start. It also is pet friendly which is a plus for us.
We recently had our best vacation ever here - it started out in question due to Hurricane Dorian hit the Island on the Friday morning prior to our vacation. The owner kept us informed the entire time which was over 6 days prior to the date the island was opened and the house was available. We really appreciated the communication as all our questions and concerns were answered well in advance and we were able to make the trip and enjoy our stay with no added stress.
highly recommended - a must stay if you are on BHI
Great Family Getaway
The house is an easy walk to the beach. The rooms and kids room were great. Easy to get to East Beach, Turtle Conservancy, Bald Head Island Club and Maritime shops! Great location
Perfect family trip
Our family of 6 loved the house. Close to the beach. Great layout. 3rd floor kids room was so popular, all the kids wanted to sleep up there. Thank you Nana. Another wonderful stay in BHI.
