About Sharon and Jim Lightbourne

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

Why Sharon and Jim Lightbourne chose Bald Head Island

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Wonderful Thanksgiving family weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two daughters, one son in law and pooches enjoyed a great holiday weekend at Hatchling House. We have rented several times on BHI and always try to choose a different area of the island. This home was center of the island, close to everything. We enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner at the BHI Club, it was fun and delicious.

The house was well supplied, spacious and comfortable. Our only concerns were at times our group went in differing directions and one of the golf carts did not hold a charge well and that driver made it home very slowly. We just didn't use that cart again, problem solved. Because the first few days were chilly we appreciated the golf cart weather shields. We will most surely be back again!

Amazing Home-Away-From-Home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for the WHOLE family. We went with my family (Two girls, 8 & 12), my sisters family (Three boys, 5, 9, & 11), our mother, and her sister (my aunt). There was plenty of space and the house was in PERFECT condition. The owner was thoughtful as well as helpful and we hope to be coming back very soon! Overall, we got what we paid for and more in this lovely BHI home!

Owners very attentive to detail

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable home, stocked with everything you might need. Plenty of space for a few families, we were a family of 4 and had lots of room left over! Owners checked in to make sure all was as expected. House was clean, neat, and owners were very organized - made it very easy to rent....

GREAT location! Close to shops/market as well as South and East Beach...

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!
