Jim's parents lived on the island for years. His parents were very involved with the island conservancy. Malcolm was an artist and the house is named after his painting 'The Hatchlings' which hangs at the BHI Conservancy. Our daughter was recently married on BHI and our son recently proposed to his fiancee on BHI. Bald Head has been a wonderful summer vacation spot for our extended family for years. We hope to continue this tradition for many years to come. We are so excited to have bought this home in summer 2013.

Sharon and Jim Lightbourne purchased this house in 2013

As soon as we saw this house, we knew it was the perfect home for our family, with a great location on the island. The large open living area is a wonderful space for family gatherings. This area is enhanced by the easy access to the large porch. The upper level porch has dining and seating areas. The lower level porch offers shade.

Built in 1974, this is one of the 17 'generator' generation homes built on BHI. It has been beautifully updated while keeping it's original charm. The vaulted ceiling in the open living room gives the home a spacious feeling. It is conservatively decorated with fun beach accents.The bright blue, red, and white colors are lovely. The home is located on a cul-de-sac lane, just a short walk to the beach. Evenings on the porch are spectacular.

PERFECT FOR FAMILY GATHERING.

  • 5 of 5
Our 2nd visit to BHI and it was wonderful. This house is perfect for a family gathering. We had 12 family members ages 3 months-81 years. Everyone enjoyed this well kept home. The living/kitchen/dining area is a great place to gather for conversation and meals or just to hang out. The huge porch is awesome to enjoy sunsets and early morning reads. Having 3 golf carts was a plus so groups could enjoy various activities during the day. The house was spotless upon our arrival. The kitchen is well stocked with anything needed to prepare meals (except the food of course)! The owners were great to work with responding to my many questions prior to the rental. You cannot go wrong staying at The Hatchlings House!

AWESOME HOUSE ON BALD HEAD ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
Short visit here with family in mid-March. LOVED the island and LOVED this house!

This house is stocked with everything you could need. Kitchen basics, games, beach and outdoor toys. Comfortable furniture and beds. Plenty of room for big groups. Most importantly- this house was amazingly clean! Not a speck of dust or sand anyplace in the house.

Great location - close to everything. Golf carts were perfect.

Definitely hope to stay here again.

GREAT BHI BEACHHOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at The Hatchlings for a girls extended weekend and had a great time. The home is extremely comfortable with great gathering spots - the great room allows for visiting for all - even the cooks! The porch, lined with rocking chairs, is inviting for coffee drinking in the am, for visiting and reading throughout the day, and sunset viewing. Though listed as only 4 bedrooms, the extra bunk room downstairs is a great place for children or teenagers. In addition to the bunk beds, there is a tv with comfy furniture and a game table. We've stayed at BHI for years and this is one of the best places for families we've found. Our dog also loved it - was ready to move right in!

SIMPLY INCREDIBLE

  • 5 of 5
Entering the beach house on Bald Head Island was like stepping into paradise! The house is charming and welcoming from the moment you enter. The living/dining/kitchen area is spacious, bright and cheerful. Casual, comfy furnature and beachie decor make it really feel like "home". It seemed apparent that the owners clear intention is to provide their guests a comfortable, sweet and memorable experience.

The house is stocked with pretty much everything you could possibly need. Loved grilling dinner outside and eating on the deck while watching the gorgeous sunsets!! Kitchen well equipped, bathrooms are updated, clean and bright. Showers (inside and outside) are great. Convenient variety of comfortable beds (twins/queens/king). Quality bedding. Fantastic large room on the lower level (with 4 bunk beds) which kept kids at play with their own large TV and game table. Plenty of golf carts and bicycles to fulfill daily family excursions exploring the magical island of Bald Head. Short 5 minute walk to the beach. AND it was more affordable then alot of the other rental houses available. So all things considered ... it was the perfect vacation place for our family. I would highly recommend it. I can't wait to book it for next year!!!

FALL RETREAT

  • 4 of 5
We scheduled a last minute trip to Bald Head and the owners were great to work with. For being a newly rented home, we were surprised with how well stocked it was. The location is very convenient to both clubs, the market, and the beach. The large upper deck was also great for sitting and enjoying the beginning of fall. This was our fifth trip to Bald Head and we can't wait to go back!
