About Julie Showalter

We love Bald Head Island! We have a 3 bedroom home on the BHI Creek around the corner from the Fire Hut. We purchased this porperty so our family and friends could join us on Island time. We travel frequently and are a bunch of wannabe Southerners! We love sharing our Island home with others. Life is a blessing and we are grateful to God for our escape to BHI.

Julie Showalter purchased this studio in 2014

Why Julie Showalter chose Bald Head Island

We needed extra-space for our family and friends to visit and this was the ideal solution. We love the location of Fire Hut and the amentities it offers.

What makes this studio unique

Located in the BHI Marina, Fire Hut sits on the waterfront and overlooks the beautiful marina area with boats and a beautiful sunset. Easy access to the BHI Ferry, boat docks, Mojo's on the Harbor, Old Baldy Lighthouse, fishing, crabbing or a quick golf cart/bike ride to explore the Island.

Wonderful getaway in great location

  • 5 of 5

This is our favorite place to stay on Bald Head Island! We have stay in other areas on Bald Head but LOVE the Marina area best. The views and sunset over the marina is gorgeous and you can easily walk to great restaurants. The room was clean and decor just make you feel happy! the owner was great to work with and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. We cannot wait to get back !

Bald Head is a good escape place!

  • 5 of 5

rental was just as advertised. a little caught off by advertised price of $200, only to see it be actually over $400. it's ok in the end. comparable to hotel rooms there and we were totally independent. golf cart made it worthwhile. not much to do on BHI other than escape reality.

We were extremely happy with the small cottage but very disappointed in the condition of golf cart.

  • 4 of 5

The house was just what we were looking for and was clean and a good location. We were disappointed with the condition of the golf cart. Windshield was non existent and cover protection zippers did not all work. Wish we would have known this ahead of time. We probably would not have rented this house, since golf cart important part of staying on island.

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry to hear this but wish you had let me know when you were at the Element. I was there 2 weeks ago for maintenance and the golf cart was in good condition and the windshield was certainly on it. I'm assuming someone wrecked the windshield without letting us know. Unfortunately since the cart is left out in the Harbor sometimes there is damage from others who are not renting. The cover will be replaced. Thank you!

Bald Head Island was more beautiful than we could have imagined. This studio is in immaculate condition and I would highly recommend it if you are a couple who like to spend your vacation outside and on the go, which we would strongly encourage with all of the beaches and natural beauty that Bald Head Island has to offer. The owner is very responsive and helpful. Enjoy your vacation!

Great place to stay in the heart of the Bald Head Island Marina!

  • 5 of 5

The owner Jules was very informative, helpful, and responsive. We had a great stay on the island and loved being close to the bars and restaurants in the marina area. The Fire hut was the perfect size for my wife and I and was very clean and very well decorated. The included golf cart was perfect as well! We would certainly stay again! Thanks Jules!
