Pepper's Place is the quintessential comfortable BHI island home. Nestled in the Maritime Forest (the heart of Bald Head) just off of a lagoon that has a lookout, Grilling area, and sometimes 100s of Egrets and the occasional gator.

The Back Story on Pepper's Place - Pepper's Place is named for our first blind dog - Ms Pepper. She was wonderful and special and fearless and, at the time, we would rent this home in winter and she loved the wind on the face from the golf cart rides.

Pepper's is set up to accommodate a couple to 6 guests. 3 br/3 ba with screen porch and 3 season porch assures room and privacy for all in your group.

WIth the Purchase of a weekly club membership ($165), Pepper's Place rental allows access to club with golf privileges to the Cobb Course. This means you can play the course (fees associated with it), have dinner in the Palm room, drinks in the bar (both are the best deals on the island), brunch on Sundays, Croquet and Tennis access, Pool (free).

Pepper's Place is also a great place to vacation with your little fur family members. We have always maintained an open pet policy and only ask that your particular situation gets pre approved and we do charge a $75 pet fee. Please be mindful of furniture, bedding, etc as we try to keep our home pet friendly into the future.

Call or email us for more details and to reserve your special family vacation.

Great winter and off-season property and we love to host in the off-season!

We will also send you winter time reminders on the island - a wonderful time to visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mark, thank you SO much again for sharing the awesome house! This trip was just as amazing as the others. The foxes are TAME?!! We got to pet a large (3 ft wide) sting ray too. The Point is different again - There weren't any groovy shells! We had a blast. I think even the dogs knew we were on vacation. They lounged all day - Thank you for letting them come. They were perfect.

Fantastic week!

  • 5 of 5

Great property for 3 couples! Each room has a queen bed and it's own full bath. The owners were wonderful to deal with and immediately answered any questions we had. The home was well stocked and even had a few extras such as spices, oils ,etc! A big highlight was the table tennis game! It was cold a couple of days so we just stayed indoors and played for hours! Home is clean and very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again and I definitely recommend it to family and friends!

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time in Bald Head, esp. enjoyed the cottage feel of Sabal Palm #1. Beautifully appointed with a lighthouse decor. Especially liked that we could bring our dog, Cash, on vacation with us. We would definitely vacation at Sabal Palm #1 again! Mark, Kirsten, and Cash Smith

Easy Living for Family Trips

  • 5 of 5

I rented the house for a trip with my two children, (both under 5). I found the house incredible family friendly. Every shower has a bathtub, so I was able to have both kids in their respective tubs after the beach or pool. The furnishings and decor were beachy but sturdy and no little knick knacks to worry about with tiny hands. The open kitchen was perfect for watching the kids while they enjoyed their Netflix shows and I made dinner. They even played "drive thru" and would pop up on the other side of the wall to "place orders."

MOST IMPORTANTLY, the beautiful new six person golf cart was a dream. We were able to bring boogie boards, beach bags, the umbrella, etc. easily for our outings. In addition, despite being outnumbered by the two kiddos, I had the advantage of being able to separate them, each to their own row if they started have sibling moments.

The location is great because the food market and the main harbor with activities/restaurants/shopping are almost equal distance from the house in opposite directions. Also, the garage was well-stocked with bicycles and beach gear such as an umbrella, tent, beach chairs, and boogie boards.

The only concern I had was that the switch for the kitchen disposal has a power outlet on the same plate and several times I caught myself reaching to flip on the disposal with wet hands from doing dishes, so be careful!

Overall, the house was very well cared for and thoughtfully outfitted for guests. The owners were outstanding with communication while I was coordinating the stay. We would definitely stay at Pepper's Place again.

Halloween Weekend at Bald Head Island

  • 5 of 5

We spent Halloween 2016 in 1 Sabal Palm Cottage and had the best time! We are in our 40's with a young son and traveled with my parents (in their 70's). The weather in October was absolutely perfect. The first day we drove all around the island exploring. While out at East Beach we spotted a whale! We couldn't believe how close to shore the whale was and it stayed for quite a while feeding allowing us to take pictures. The next day the Island had Trick or Treating at the local businesses and a few private homes and a Haunted Trail of Terror on the golf course. We all dressed up and participated with the locals and their guest. We spent most of the vacation shopping, climbing Old Baldy, riding bikes, hiking trails, sitting at the beach and cruising in the golf cart. We cooked two meals at home using the grill in the common area. The house had everything we needed and more. We would definitely recommended vacationing at Bald Head Island and 1 Sabal Palm- as my son says "it is a magical place". The owners are the hostess with the mostest! Thank you Pam and Dave for everything!!
