Fabulous !

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been to the island several times alone and with our children . This was a much needed retreat for he and I as we are managing raising teenagers and tending to aging parents . I can not say enough about Carolina Moonshine ! The owners have decorated this little cottage perfectly and we love the Marina location. This will be our first choice for accommodations in the future for trips without the whole family. Thank you Hugh , we had a wonderful stay !

Couldn't ask for anything better for a last minute weekend getaway. Thank you Hugh for your help and suggestions to make our first trip to BHI perfect. Carolina Moonshine is a clean, cute one bedroom cottage that has everything you need and in a fantastic location. The porch is a great spot to relax and the beach is only a short golf car ride away. Hate that we had to leave, but we will certainly be back!

All we can say is awesome! This one bedroom on the Marina was the perfect getaway for my wife and I. The place was very clean and the perfect spot to get in all the beautiful sites of the Marina! The bed was super comfortable and the amenities including the golf cart was great for touring the island. We would stay every weekend if we could. The owner was very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed to end our spring break!

Great way to end the summer!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in BHI on Friday evening... after a long drive, we quickly realized that our trip was going to be worth the journey! Carolina Moonshine was cozy, welcoming and impeccably clean. The owner Hugh helped us with every step of our vacation... even down to some restaurant tips and how to reserve the tram from the ferry! The cottage was in a perfect location, with easy walking, as well as golf cart driving (cart included in our stay!) to anything and everything you may need or want to experience! My husband and I really appreciated the help as this was out first time to BHI and we absolutely hope to come back, very soon! Thanks to Hugh and Carolina Moonshine for making our trip a truly pleasant and relaxing experience!

Recharge the batteries

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful few days at Carolina Moonshine. Everything was absolutely perfect. The cottage was well appointed, clean and we did not need for anything. The central location of the home made it easy for us to walk to nearby restaurants and the included golf cart gave us the opportunity to explore the island. Owner Hugh Powell was extremely helpful from start to finish as this was our first time to the Island. The porch was where we spent most of our time, watching the boats and people come and go. If you are a couple looking for a quiet reprieve from daily life, we highly recommend staying at this home.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I surprised my husband for his 30th birthday with a getaway trip to Bald Head Island. We stayed at Carolina Moonshine and could not be happier with our trip. Hugh and Rebecca's beautiful little marina-side cottage was pristine - so clean, beautifully decorated and coffee and bottled waters were included upon our arrival. The golf cart was a perfect amenity (and pretty necessary given BHI's no-car atmosphere), and we enjoyed cruising the island during our stay. As first time travelers to BHI, we didn't know where to stay on the island, and the location of Carolina Moonshine was perfect for us. It's the closest you can get to the two wonderful restaurant/bars in the marina and very close to the ferry (such that you'll likely be the first stop on the tram upon your arrival to BHI). The market was a quick golf cart ride/fun bike ride (great breakfast burritos), and we also enjoyed cruising to East Beach, which was our favorite beach on the island (about a 10-15 minute golf cart ride). Don't forget to hit up the Sunday brunch buffet at the BHI Club. We left fat and happy!

We can't wait to stay here again!
