3+ bedroom Southern Living like decor!! Gorgeous home in Maritime forest

Welcome to The Hiding Place! We are certain you will fall in love with Bald Head Island and never want to leave. Our beautiful home is nestled in the maritime forest among large oak trees with gorgeous hanging Spanish moss. We love living in the forest with the shade it provides when you return from a sunny day at the beach and being able to listen to the singing birds. We are so centrally located that it takes less than 2 minutes by golf cart to get to South Beach and just 5 minutes to walk up to the Maritime Market and quaint shops.

We just purchased our home (built in 2008) in February of 2017 and were blessed to be able to lovingly paint and furnish the entire home with everything new and American made from places like Ethan Allen and Bassett Furniture, including bedding by Ralph Lauren and Pottery Barn with Wamsutta and Tommy Bahama bath towels. You will be enveloped by warmth and coziness.

We have worked hard to provide all you will need to relax and unwind and be refreshed. Enjoy the open floor plan, custom cabinets, granite counter tops, and spacious living areas. The large master bedroom has a stunning white 4-poster king bed, a sitting area and an open deck off the master with table and two chairs which is perfect for morning coffee or star gazing to end the day. The ensuite master bath has two sinks, a dual head shower and a walk in closet. The second bedroom has a king bed, walk in closet and ensuite bath with tiled shower and built in bench in the shower. The third bedroom is perfect for kids with a set of bunkbeds and PS4 game system. The bathroom for this bedroom is adjacent and has a tub and shower combo. The second floor also has a central TV viewing room with a day bed with trundle (a possible 4th bedroom) as well as the laundry with state of the art washer and dryer.

The first floor is an open concept that includes the family room with fireplace, smart tv with blue ray player, dining area, a fully stocked chef's kitchen with stainless steel appliances, including double ovens, convenient breakfast bar and half bath. The gorgeous round wood dining table seats eight. A screened porch off the dining room provides another place to dine with a table for 6 and two comfy swivel rockers to relax and enjoy the outdoors bug free. A covered wrap around rocking chair porch is perfect for early morning and late day relaxation with 5 rocking chairs.

Your vacation will be memorable with many special touches - a DVD library with over 50 movies, games, puzzles, books, beach towels, a beach cooler bag, a programmable crock pot, waffle maker, Bose Bluetooth speaker, clocks with charging docks in each bedroom, a PS4 in the bunk room with 2 controllers and games, Oster electric wine bottle opener, Cuisinart single serve coffee maker (uses Kcups) in kitchen, a small Keurig coffee maker in the master bedroom, Aeropress Coffee and Espresso maker, Krups electric spice and coffee grinder, Kitchen Aid mixer, 5 flat screen tvs (1 in each bedroom, 1 in the spare room and 1 in the family room - and all but one are smart tv's to be able to stream Netflix or Hulu).

Our home has two 4 person golf carts (one with doors and the other with rain gear), 2 Diamondback bikes, a gas grill, beach toys, 6 beach chairs, a beach umbrella, a beach tent, a bait freezer in the garage for fishermen, and an outdoor shower.

The BHI club house membership is included in the rental price. This provides you with access to their aquatic center and dining facilities. They are in the process of a major renovation that is supposed to be completed by Memorial Day. The pictures of the new complex are beautiful, it will look like a resort pool!!!

We look forward to hearing from you and helping to make your vacation special.

About Jeff Sampson

We are a family of five from Kentucky and Bald Head Island is our favorite place in the world!!

Jeff Sampson purchased this House in 2017

Why Jeff Sampson chose Bald Head Island

My husband and I first discovered BHI in 1997 the year after we were married. We fell in love with it and dreamed of the day when we would have children and take them back. We are so blessed to have found this house in our favorite location, the Maritime forest and just a minute away from the Market!! When you are cooking and discover your forgot something it's just a minute ride in the golf cart to the cutest market ever or within walking distance:) With no cars allowed on the island we feel like we have traveled back in time. We are able to rest and recover from the pressures of the world.

What makes this House unique

Location, location, location!! Just minutes from the beach, the Market, Old Baldy, the ferry and the BHI Club!!

                                                              Thank you so much for sharing your awesome house with us. It was a wonderful and relaxing week. The house is super clean and well stocked. The beds are so comfortable, and we loved drinking our coffee on the porch in the morning (our dog loved the porch too!). The central location is great for getting to the market and all around the island. It was a great first visit to BHI. We will be back! Thanks again.

                                                              This house is just right in every way!

All property descriptions were accurate. Owner communication was timely and thorough. I cannot day enough positive things about this property. We will definitely rent “The Hiding Place” the next time we go to BHI. Thank you for a great experience.

This exquisite house is incredibly well stocked (important on BHI). Everything you need for gourmet cooking, grilling, games,tv, internet. It is all there. I would highly, highly recommend this house for a great BHI vacation!
