Wonderful stay at the Carolina Moonshine

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Carolina Moonshine! We enjoyed the beautiful views of the marina and it was convenient to all restaurants. The interior is beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you need. We loved exploring Bald Head on the provided golf cart. We look forward to staying here again next time we are on the Island!

Great little place! Clean, everything you need. Right in harbor! Golf cart for anywhere ....

  • 5 of 5

We found this little place perfect. Bed room, kitchen, bath. Right in the harbor. We loved the sound of the boats. little food and fun places to visit all in walking distance. Golf cart for exploring island - lots of history and sand and big trees and beauty. At night we cracked the kitchen and bathroom windows for a slight breeze. Keys and lock box and door look and RElocking the door took a little patience. But it all worked out.

The 30 minute ferry took us 'away'! We recommend to anyone!

Perfect weekend getaway for Husband and Wife!

  • 5 of 5

If you are like us and have a bunch of kids (5 for us) and need a recharge, this is the perfect place to stay! One bedroom with a little kitchen and bathroom is all you need. You can take the Golf Cart everywhere on the island to either pick up things at the market, shop or site see. It is a beautiful 5 mile run to the beach from the house and coffee is within walking distance. We will definitely be staying again and recommending this little house to all of our parent friends that need a child free getaway!

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had never been to Bald Head Island before and were grateful that we "accidentally" booked Carolina Moonshine not knowing anything about the island. The cottage location on the Marina enabled us to watch boat traffic from the front porch and while laying in bed! For a former Navy submarine commanding officer and his wife, this was terrific.

The cottage was quiet, clean and had everything we could want or need; was attractively furnished and the bed, extra comfy. The accompanying golf cart took us to explore all over the island.

We would welcome returning to Carolina Moonshine and Bald Head Island.

Just right for a quick getaway

  • 5 of 5

This quant studio apartment is just perfect for a quick getaway for one or two. Beautifully, furnished and convenient to the ferry, restaurants and shopping. We used the golf cart provided to go to East Beach and the market, but rented bikes right there as well. We loved watching the boats come and go from the harbor and the sunsets from the front porch were nice. We would highly recommend to anyone!

Adorable home, Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have enjoyed our stay at Carolina Moonshine more! The home has everything you need - a comfortable bed, closet, kitchen, mini-fridge, coffee machine, and golf cart. The house is right on the marina, meaning it's so easy to get to and from the ferry and has a beautiful sunset view.

Hugh made everything so easy - from the initial process to securing the house to sharing detailed instructions for accessing the keys, Wi-Fi, and golf cart. If we visit Bald Head Island again, we will definitely stay at Caroline Moonshine.
