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

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.

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.

Perfect Getaway...A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just got back from our stay and cannot think of anything that was not perfect about this house. The owner is very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The house was absolutely pristine when we arrived - it smelled clean and there was not a speck of dirt to be found!

Some bonus amenities we noticed that may be helpful to anyone considering staying here:

-In the kitchen, there is a microwave and oven combo, stove, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, fridge/freezer, plus there is a washer/dryer - all of which came in handy during our stay.

-If you are a Carolina fan, you will love the golf cart!

-The couch is super comfy and great for relaxing at night. The TVs were very high quality (I did not spend much time watching TV, but we were there during the Masters so my husband did)

-The house is just a brief (less than 5 mins) bike or golf cart ride away from the beaches and the Shoals Club. It was about a 10 minute golf cart ride from the BHI Club/Marina side of the island.

-The house is 3 stories with the kitchen/living area on the middle floor and a bathroom attached to each of the bedrooms, which are on the top and bottom floors – if there had been another couple staying with us, we would have each had our own private space and would not have felt like we were intruding the way you often do when all the bedrooms on are on the same floor.

-The bathrooms both had spacious walk-in showers.

-If you are a golfer, it is definitely worth it to buy a temporary membership to the BHI club so you can play golf. We went out first thing in the morning and it was so peaceful and the course was gorgeous. Afterwards, we stopped by the Pelicatessen for drinks and lunch, which was delicious (FYI if you have a gluten allergy, they have several GF bread options!)

-The house is very quiet and private – there were others staying in the homes around us and we never heard anything.

We really enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to staying here again! We would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet, comfy, relaxing place to rest after spending the day exploring this amazing island!
