Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: In the spring of 2000, we searched the Internet for a great place to spend a weekend. What we discovered was Bald Head Island, our getaway destination for love, laughter and fun with our family and friends. We then found ourselves dreaming of living on this magical island someday. In 2014, we came to BHI determined to make our dream a reality. Days of touring the island finally brought us to what is now our home... Our “Key to Searenity.” It is located in Keepers Landing, a small collection of homes that allows residents (homeowners and guests alike) to enjoy both the “community feel” as well as close proximity to all the great locations on BHI. Blackbeard and Bonnet (yes… we named our two golf carts) transport us to the beaches, Shoals Club, BHI Country Club and other great island destinations within minutes. We hope you choose our home to spend time making memories with your family and friends. We won’t be surprised if you fall in love with BHI too, and someday become our neighbor! Allen and Carol Auchenpaugh
