About Hugh Powell
Family owned, and family cared for,and we present our home to our guests as if you are family. Only the best will do! We visit quite often and keep our home well cared for, and by our presence, keep an eye out for whats of interest on the Island to tell our guests what might be fun to do and prepare for.
Hugh Powell purchased this House in 2011
Why Hugh Powell chose South Beach
We chose Bald Head Island because the Island grabbed us 10 years ago when we first visited. It is relatively close to our home, 'hard to get to' because its an island, and it is in North Carolina the best place to live!
What makes this House unique
This Island is magical! It starts as soon as you unload and begin the journey on our great ferries. The 20 minute ride is just enough to unwind and relax before you hit the Island and start what we call 'Island Time'. You will love the slower pace. Step onto the lower porch or the upper deck and see the Atlantic in all its glory, and you'll want to go get another drink and sit yourself down a spell. Our home is so close to everything and RIGHT ON THE BEACH! We thank the Lord every day for allowing us to be so fortunate and share this wonderful Island. We pinch each other to make sure we are still awake, because it seems like such a dream come true. To be able to walk out of our home directly to the beach with our 2 puppies is just wonderful. And we always pick up after our puppies!

Perfect Vacation Rental
This was our third time renting Ocean Beach and we love it!
The kitchen is amazingly well appointed - if you need it, it is there! Most small electronics you could want are in there, including a toaster, blender, coffee pot, crock pot, and waffle maker! Pots, pans and baking items of every size. Even specialized tools, like a zester. This house has everything.
The location is also ideal. Just over 1 mile from the redone BHI Club, steps to the beach, a mile from the store - you can spend your time doing what you want and not driving all around.
The play spot under the house is my girls' favorite place! there is a hammock, baby swing, wooden swing and porch swing, as well as plenty of riding toys and beach toys. They spent time every day under there playing and loved it!
We will certainly be back for a 4th summer and beyond!
It was a wonderful stay. House is beautiful, location perfect and host was great to work with! We couldn't have been happier with this home, it had everything we needed for an amazing vacation.
The house was fantastic. Just as described. In addition to being a great house, Hugh was a great host. Very responsive and one of the few rentals that really has all of the accessories (paper towels, toilet paper, salt, pepper, coffee filters, etc.) that make the place like home.
We greatly enjoyed helping this family enjoy Bald Head Island on their first trip. The kinds words make the hard work and travel worth it and would look forward to hosting the family again.
A lovely and Tranquil place
I booked this place for clients to have a relaxing family gathering. They spent almost a week there and were super pleased with the island and stay. I highly recommend contacting the owner before hand to set up the club access for guests in order to use pool, golf course, and restaurants on the island!! The owner is super helpful and had many recommendations for the family.
Kitchen is really well stocked so you don't need to shlep the small stuff with you.
Its 5 star all the way so dont hesitate in booking.
Hugh and Rebecca are wonderful hosts. Everything works and the house was spotless. Thought i was stepping into a Pottery Barn catalogue, tastefully furnished.
A magical week.
