About Nana Smith, Manager, Milliken Family Group LLC
My husband and I have been married for 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. 18 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!

Great Family Getaway
The house is an easy walk to the beach. The rooms and kids room were great. Easy to get to East Beach, Turtle Conservancy, Bald Head Island Club and Maritime shops! Great location
Perfect family trip
Our family of 6 loved the house. Close to the beach. Great layout. 3rd floor kids room was so popular, all the kids wanted to sleep up there. Thank you Nana. Another wonderful stay in BHI.
Great house and Nana was joy to work with
Third time staying at Milliken House
This is our favorite beach house at BHI. The location is fabulous - about midway between BHI Conservancy /Shoals Club and BHI Club and a very short walk to the ocean. Speaking of clubs, guest memberships at both BHI Club and Shoals Club are available. It has been our experience with BHI rentals that many have guest memberships available for one but not both of the clubs. The house is perfect for kids. Our kids love the third floor which has bunk beds, two twin beds built-in along a wall, and a futon. The mattresses and pillows in the house are very comfortable, and the kitchen is nicely stocked for those that like to cook (but really, who wants to cook with all the yummy restaurants on the island?). Highly, highly recommend!
Beautiful spacious house near the beach
We absolutely loved staying at the Milliken house. Check in and check out was a smooth process. The carts were great. House is located across the street from the beach and the beach is so beautiful and private so not crowded. It's turtle season now so we got to see the nesting areas and the conservancy guarding that area.
Our rooms were very clean and fully furnished. The house even had TONS of towels for the beach and bathrooms as well as soap and leftover off and sun block spray.
The open kitchen with a side bar is awesome.
Nana was extremely helpful and provided passes to the newly renovated BHI club with 2 pool areas and kiddie pools.
We had a really great time and wanted for nothing!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Had a short power outage on the island and Nana help get us back up and running with computerized water heater and we had hot water without skipping a beat. Absolutely excellent hospitality and awesome house packed full with anything you would need except groceries of course. Just steps from ocean! Thank you for the memorable stay!
