Overview

South Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

'Ocean Beach' resides at 21 Silversides Trail directly across the street from the beach on a cul-de-sac. WHAT A VIEW! We are midway down the South Beach, near the Maritime Market, fire station, boutique shops and almost exactly between The Bald Head Island Club and The Shoals Club.

Our new home got a thorough going-over and is redecorated, repainted, and rebranded in the owners style. Our luxurious new bedding is sure to please everyone. There are two master bedrooms, and a third bedroom also has a king sized bed and private bath. The 'kids room' has two over-sized twins; that bedroom has its own bath as well. Each bedroom has new 32' flat screen TVs and DVD players.

Please remember to make reservations with the Bald Head Island Ferry to arrive and depart. Your ferry ticket also provides you with tram service from the ferry to 21 Silversides Trail.

All linens and towels are provided. We have wireless high speed internet service and unlimited domestic long distance phone service.

The view from the upper deck is just spectacular and allows us to see from the Cape Fear River to Frying Pan Shoals. Dolphins are frequent visitors to 'our' beach and are easily seen from all 3 porches.

In the garage you will find a 4 passenger and a 6 passenger golf cart. You MUST be a licensed driver to operate the golf carts on Bald Head Island. The shaded protected area that is the entry to our home, also serves as a place to escape the sun in one of the 2 hammocks. There is a sandy play area under the house for those little ones who have grown tired of our sun drenched beaches and a hot outside shower to get rid of the sand.

The Maritime Market is quite amazing considering they must bring everything to the Island on a barge. The selections are extremely good and the service is excellent.

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 Bald Head Island

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!

Wonderful time with friends and family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has vacationed on BHI for the past 7 years. This was our first time staying in 'Ocean Beach' and it was by far the nicest house we've stayed in yet! The views are beautiful and the location is fabulous, so close to the beach! The beach area in front of the house is great! Hugh was wonderful to work with in coordinating our stay at his lovely home. His home felt like our home! Very cozy and everything you would need in a house to live for a week with family and friends! The layout of the house is great with views of the ocean from almost every room! We look forward to staying in 'Ocean Beach' again!!!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation week was spent by our family of eight. The house and amenities were excellent. The place felt more like our home instead of renting a vacation place. Personnel touches - from the bag of beach towels at the front door to every possible kitchen device on hand. The spacious family room was warm and inviting with room for all to enjoy. After a beach visit it was great to take a warm shower outside to get rid of the sand. There was an abundance of beach goodies for all ages. Each one of our family expressed their joy from the stay and how nice things were. The owner - Hugh - treated us more like a friend than an overnite visitor. My son - 42 yrs old - really enjoyed the upper deck at night with his group. We will return again to this spot and the friends we made with the owner. Highly recommend!!!!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed in this beautifully appointed beach front home with an easy walk to the wonderful waters of South beach. The home is centrally located on the island with easy access to the ferry and the grocery store. The entire home is extremely comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could need. The view from the kitchen window is spectacular and makes any night of dinner preparation a pure pleasure. The decks are wonderful including the top floor deck for star gazing - even binoculars are provided. We especially appreciated all the beach chairs and boogie boards already there. Our only regret was having to leave. I hope we can return some day…

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

We walked into a very clean well taken care of, and carefully thought through house. It has everything to make it easy to relax and start enjoying yourselves. By everything I mean fresh water in the fridge,paper towel, detergent, napkins,toys,playing cards,books,comfortable furniture, even a swing for toddles! The view is spectacular from every room in the house. It was fantastic to sit on the porch anytime of day and enjoy the view of the ocean and the wonderful breeze. If that doesn't sell you on this house -this should the beds are out of this world comfortable! This house is perfectly located on the island for easy access to all the activities.

Last but not least the owners are very friendly, helpful, informative, and wonderful to work with. Very assuring when renting a house sight unseen, in a place that you have never been to.

I would recommend both this house and BHI to anyone. We had a wonderful time and are planning our return trip someday soon.

Owner's Response: Well, this is just wonderful to hear how new guests to Bald Head Island and our "Ocean Beach" home felt about their vacation. We are as appreciative to this family and their review as it sounds like their visit was for them. We endeavor to think ahead for our guests needs and have prepared the home in that anticipation and have them aware of happenings on the Island during their stay. We certainly look forward to hosting this wonderful family again.

If you are new to Bald Head, this house is ideal for you. It's centrally located, beautifully decorated, and oceanfront. Plus, the owners are dog lovers and may allow you to include your four-legged family member. Has lots of extras ...play areas for kids inside and out, three decks, wonderful beds. Just don't book the week we want next year!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Ocean Beach on Saturday, May 10th, 2014 and the house is excellent. It is so tastefully and professionally decorated. We were right there at the beach and it made it so easy to go back and forth to the house. We have been to BHI eight times and stayed at some nice homes but this was the TOPS! They had everything you needed from Kleenexes to crock pots. Paper products galore. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking needs. I just can't say enough about how great the home is. Don't give it a second thought about should we stay there are somewhere else, THIS IS THE PLACE! It's in a cul-de-sac and close to everything. The carts, the bikes, the beach chairs were all in great condition. The bikes are a little rusty but they still worked for us. The pavilion was absolutely great for our grandchildren. They had all kinds of toys and ride toys for small children. Our grandchildren played there a lot. One thing to share if you have grandchildren bring you monitor so you can hear them upstairs while they are playing. That worked really great for us. We could hear everything they were saying and doing. The beds were very comfortable. Again this was a great place to stay. We would definitely stay there again and nowhere else. You will love it. The owners were so gracious and so helpful. He would email me back quickly on every question I had. Very kind people. They made you feel like you were at home.
