About Mimi Leach

After moving to Charlottesville,Virginia from the San Francisco area in 2002, our family longed to be near the ocean. We felt as though we had struck gold when we discovered the beauty of Bald Head Island. Our children and their friends love everything about the island and look forward to every visit.

Mimi Leach purchased this house in 2009

Why Mimi Leach chose Bald Head Island

My husband & I were captivated by the uniqueness of Bald Head Island. After visiting for three years, we decided to purchase land in Cape Fear Station and build a home on the island. We finished STAR GAZER in April 2009 and it was absolutely worth the wait!

What makes this house unique

Together with our children, friends, and family members, we enjoy the pristine beaches immensely, as well as exploring the island on a golf cart, bicycle, or on foot. The brief ferry ride from Southport provides a much needed means to relax and anticipate the joy of what lies ahead.

The Perfect Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our Easter vacation in this lovely home and had a great time. The owner was so helpful in giving us great information about the area and suggestions on things to do. The house was so pretty, clean and gave everyone a place to hang out and relax. We will definitely come back, if it is available... we've missed the boat for this Summer, it's already rented up for the Summer! You will love your stay!

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Stargazer was the perfect place for our family! This home is large enough to accommodate a lot of people, but at the same time it is still cozy. Having two master bedrooms, on separate floors, is especially nice. Each of the four bedrooms has its own private bath, which is not easy to find either. The kitchen and baths are extremely well-equipped. The décor is lovely, hardwood floors through-out, beautiful kitchen cabinets and granite counter tops. Lots of light, screened as well as open porches; two golf carts, bikes, beach chairs and umbrellas. It's so nice to rent directly from the owner and not through a rental agency. There is a personal touch to the house, as well as in the communications with the owner who is most helpful! We would stay here again. We loved riding our bikes through the canopied paths, or golf carts to the beach, shopping and site-seeing. Grandchildren loved the activities at the Turtle Conservancy.

50th Anniversary Celebration

  • 5 of 5

This house was just perfect for our family gathering on BHI! We had about 30 family members on the island to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary and Mimi went above and beyond to assist me with not only our travel plans but those of our extended family as well. We hosted several family dinners in the home and had ample room for serving and seating 25 plus for dinner. The kitchen is well stocked and the house is very clean and well maintained. The layout of the house and the extra porches allows for everyone to gather together or find a private space for themselves to read a book. The linens and towels supplied by homeowner are excellent quality and there is plenty.

The basic items supplied by the homeowner are a very nice touch and much appreciated. You do not need to bring paper products and basic supplies with you and this is a huge help when packing.

We also took advantage of the crib and high chair which was again of great quality and much appreciated for our 1 year old.

Thanks Mimi for helping us have a perfect week on BHI and a wonderful celebration for our family. We'll be back!

Fabulous BHI Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth summer at Bald Head Island, and our second time staying at Star Gazer. We love this house, with ample bedrooms, bathrooms, relaxing and open kitchen and family room, and multiple porches where people can relax and spend time together. All of the puzzles and games were fun for kids and adults, and we enjoyed the beach chairs and towels, as well as all the beach toys. We love the location in Cape Fear Station - very quiet, yet close to the BHI Conservancy, East Beach, and the Shoals Club. Mimi does an excellent job keeping the house ready for her guests, and she very kindly sent us emails during the week to keep us informed of BHI events. We already booked our week at Star Gazer for next summer - we are excited to return!

A Beautiful House in the Maritime Forest

  • 5 of 5

2014 was our second vacation at the Star Gazer, and we plan to go again. It is in a beautiful, tranquil setting -you feel like you are living in the trees. We loved being so close to East Beach, the Shoal's Club, and Turtle Junction. We bicycled all over the island, and some 5 or 6 bicycle come with the house. The house is so comfortable and well maintained. All bedrooms and baths are really nice. The kitchen is spacious and all cooking utensils are provided. Beach chairs and towels are provided in great numbers. Two golf carts are great for a larger family. Mimi is a gracious owner, and she will try her very best to make your stay wonderful. Mimi is extraordinarily responsive to your needs. We would recommend this special house to anyone for a time to reconnect and relax.

Wonderful experience at a beautiful BHI house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Star Gazer! It was a beautiful home that is very well maintained. The house was very comfortable for our two families to stay in for the week. The kitchen is very well stocked and spacious. The porches were lovely to relax on and enjoy time together. The owner, Mimi, was very attentive and very helpful. We couldn't have asked for a better house or a better vacation week!
