About Nana Smith, Manager, Milliken Family Group LLC
My husband and I have been married for over 30 years and have 3 children, all of whom have grown up vacationing in this home on Bald Head Island. We have dedicated renters who return year after year. Everyone takes wonderful care of our house!
Nana Smith, Manager, Milliken Family Group LLC purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Nana Smith, Manager, Milliken Family Group LLC chose South Beach
My husband and I bought a beach house on Bald Head Island because it seemed like the perfect place to create family memories for our children and grandchildren (hopefully, someday!). The kids were quite young when we got it. We wanted a home base for our family that would be with us throughout the career moves and stages of life. Nearly 20 years later, it is a decision we do not regret!
What makes this Cottage unique
The island is very secluded and relatively unspoiled. Contact with the outside world seems very limited, and we really lose track of time there. Its an extremely safe place, where our children can just take off in the morning and come back before dark, dirty and exhausted, ready for dinner and bed! Its good, clean fun, the old fashioned kind we grew up with; limited technology, lots of nature and active, outdoor time. Our kids would spend their days fishing, crabbing, clamming, surfing, biking, roller blading, playing touch football on the beach, and playing 'capture the flag' and 'ghost in the graveyard' in our neighborhood with the other kids staying there whenever we are there. Another favorite activity was setting up an old fashioned lemonade stand. Boy did they rake it in on a hot summer day!

Another Wonderful Stay on BHI
Had a great stay on BHI. Nana responded quickly to any questions or concerns. Very comfortable home and great location. Can't wait to return in March!
Thank you Madeleine for being so understanding about the cart issue you experienced. Come back anytime!
Great stay in a good location
Cute 3 bedroom near the ocean, and the Shoals club and popular East beach a short golf cart drive away.
Kitchen was stocked with lots of pans, bowls, utensils, trash bags, plastic ware, etc. The oven was not working when we arrived right before Thanksgiving, but Nana was super responsive and helped solve the problem for us. Linens were clean, and bedding was comfy. Baths are a little dated but didn’t really bother us much, as we were there for the location anyway! The third floor bedroom doesn’t have a bath up there but it didn’t bother my son who loved the privacy and view. So awesome to be able to bring our little pups with us, and they loved the crate that was provided. We kept them in there together and they were super comfortable. We would definitely stay again! Thanks Nana!
Excellent Second Stay at Milliken House
Enjoyed our return visit as much as before. Great house, great location, great property manager!
Very responsive property manager
Great location across from the beach! The property manager was responsive to any questions or requests we had. Would stay again.
A Week in Paradise
The Milliken House was an excellent house for our family's week at Bald Head Island. It is only steps from the South Beach access. The house was clean and amply equipped with everything a family needs for a great week at the beach. The kitchen also contained everything needed.
During our stay, we experienced a mechanical problem with the house. The owners responded immediately by text and quickly sent out a repair team which remedied the problem completely. We could not have been more impressed by the property or the owners. They certainly helped to make our trip a wonderful family experience and memory. I highly recommend this house and we would gladly lease it in the future.
