About Carol Hipps

I am a dentist in Raleigh N.C. and easily accesible if you have any questions

Carol Hipps purchased this house in 2007

Why Carol Hipps chose Bald Head Island

Bld Head island is a perfect get away spot if you wish to totally relax. The ferry ride to the island is peaceful and beautiful. It begins an experience that will allow you leave the stress of the mainland behind.

What makes this house unique

I always enjoy walking on the beach with my golden retriever Scandal and lounging at the Shoals Club pool. Either cooking at the house or going out to one of the restaurants is fun, especially MoJo's

The Best Location of Southern Atlantic Charm

  • 5 of 5

Great house! Best location we've had in 15 years of coming to Bald Head Island! A 2 minute drive at the most to either of the two East Beach entrances, Shoal's Club or eastern most South Beach entrance. Right @ the corner from Turtle central w/a short cut for people and bikes from Sumner's Crescent neighborhood. We very much enjoyed the bikes.....to and from the market...@ the Island to the beach, Shoal's Club....gave this vacation a much different experience. Master Bed slept great! Teenage daughters loved having the first floor bedroom as their own,etc., Sliding barn door and ship lap siding gave the nautical feel....The owner was very responsive and her cleaning/maintenance company was also very responsive, as needed, ex - They replaced 2 beach chairs w/in a day and sent a tradesman over for a minor repair.

5 Stars! Thanks Doc! We enjoyed it tremendously!

See you next year!

Best Regards,

Matthew T. Butler

Fun location, just right for a family

  • 5 of 5

We had another wonderful visit to BHI staying in this home. It is increasingly difficult to find properties suitable (and affordable) for a single family and this home was a nice size. It's on the tip of the island, very convenient to the beach, Shoals Club, and the Nature Conservancy buildings. This house has 5 great bicycles; we were delighted to find the tires pumped up and ready to ride. Be advised that the house covers three floors, with the bedrooms on the top and bottom and the living area in the middle, so you go up and down a lot, including to the bathrooms. We did find the living area quite dark for a family that likes to read at night. Nice selection of movies too, just in case it rains! It was very clean and the owner very responsive. Enjoy!

Lovely

  • 4 of 5

First I want to say that the owner was very flexible and responsive. We had trouble with the cable and she called the company and had them out there the next morning. This is a cute property. It is small but has everything you need and is quite comfortable. It's a short 5 minute walk to the beach, and the bikes were a great addition. Our only minor comment would be the size of the kitchen (which obviously can't be changed). My husband loves to cook, so working in a small kitchen with a limited number/quality of pots/pans, counter space, etc was challenging. Other than that our stay was fabulous.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback and so glad you had a nice stay. The issue with the pots and pans has been addressed as new complete set has been delivered to the house.

Loved it

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying here - the house was great, about a 6 minute walk to the beach. Very comfy, well equipped with most everything you need, including golf cart, about five bikes, beach chairs, some beach toys. We had a lovely time! Would definitely return!

Stay with kids

  • 4 of 5

The house itself is great for families, with close proximity to the shoals club, public beach access, and conservation center. However, the second bedroom is on the ground level with the master on the third floor. This arrangement would be great for older kids and teens, but not for younger kids. Thankfully, there is a sofa in the living room from which we could hear, but it required that we make the bed daily. Also, the sofa bed has seen better days. If it were just the two of us, clearly this wouldn't have been a problem. The only other factor that makes it less than 4 stars is - frankly - the unit was not very clean when we arrived. We ended up washing both duvet covers as there were -really- gross spots on them (will spare the details). The kitchen is stocked, but some of the pans are ruined (again, whoever is cleaning should help take care of this). All in all, it's a good place to stay and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Very romantic spot

  • 5 of 5

we needed extra rooms for our wedding guests this home worked out nicely. It has a great location quiet but close to the best beach. Classy look and feel. Very few small homes available that match this one.
