Overview

Coastal North Carolina House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

BHI Club membership and departure cleaning included.

Don't be fooled by inflated prices that claim 20% discounts or third day free with two day rental. Our bottom line prices are already much lower (in some cases 25% or more then the list price). Our home is huge, comfy and up to date. Our location is great and our prices up front are lower then the competition. We do not double our rates so that we can give 20% off or through in things that make us look good. We are already good. Our guest reviews reflect that. We do not pay our guests or hold them hostage in order to get a good review. The guests have liked our home and our price to voluntarily want to leave a comment. That should be enough in itself but I will give you the guided and detailed tour anyway.

Relax, enjoy wildlife and the sounds of the nearby ocean as you sit on rocking chairs enjoying views of lighthouses and sunsets. With over 1300 sq. ft. of porches, this newly decorated 2,000 sq. ft. home features island decor and family friendly accommodations. Three roomy bedrooms with 2.5 baths plus an outdoor shower and a fish cleaning station provides for everyone.

Only 1 minute from the beach, steps away from the Newly Renovated 4.5 Star 18 hole George Cobb designed golf course, about 900 feet from the newly decorated clubhouse. Located just a short walk or bike ride from the village makes it easy to get to your boat, rent a canoe, eat at the dockside restaurants or visit and walk up to the oldest lighthouse in N.C.(Old Baldy 1817). Two golf carts, grill, beach chairs, games and movies along with cable TV in every room.

Please do not miss the 9 minute video provided on VRBO. Click on the tab at the top of the still pictures of the house. Turn up the sound and relax. If you are not convinced that Bald Head Island and Maggie's Place is not unique then it may not exist.

Important Addition: We now have included unlimited Long Distance Phone Service, High Speed Wifi Internet, Hi-Def Satellite Extended TV Service which includes all the major sports networks. Included are Sunday NFL Max Ticket (Every Game, Every Sunday in HD), Golf Channel, Fox Sports 1 & 2, Tennis Channel, CBS Sports Network, NFL Network, ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN News, ESPNU, Regional Sports, FS South, MASN640, MLB Network, MSNBC, NBA TV and much more.

About Richard Walsh

I am 63 and my wife is 61 (and getting older as I type). We are almost at retirement age and would rather travel then spend time at our home near Cleveland, Ohio (especially in winter).I enjoy photography, scuba diving, fishing, treasure hunting, flying and nature. My wife also likes to travel, birding, snorkeling (she's to chicken to scuba dive), walking along the beach and a relaxing diner. We have both traveled around the world numerous times and love to meet people. We love the mountains and visiting our second home on Bald Head Island. We honestly do want people to come and visit so they may enjoy what we have.

Richard Walsh purchased this house in 2005

Why Richard Walsh chose Coastal North Carolina

My wife and I grew up near the ocean and watched our favorite places get crowded as houses and resorts brought crowds of people and the problems that go with it. Bald Head Island is what most people dream about when they look at travel magazine. The island is uncrowded and has over 14 miles of beaches which 11 miles were given back to the state remaining forever natural. Over 12,000 acres of Marsh provide the utmost in observing nature. Being that the island extends out into the gulf-stream it attracts a variety of sea-life including Loggerhead Turtles, Whales, Tuna, Dophins and many more. The geographic location along the cental coastline of the U.S. between Florida and Maine provide a phenominal means of seeing birds from the North and South as they migrate through Bald Head. The 100+ year old towering Cedar and Oak forest abutts the 50 foot + sand dunes making this island unique and not found in many other places. There are also only a few places in the U.S. that restrict travel on a protected island to electric golf carts, bicycles or walking. This is what made my wife and I buy a piece of heaven.

What makes this house unique

We love the peace and solitude and safety of this lovely place. We are nature lovers and can't resist bird watching, shelling, and turtle watching. I love canoeing, fishing and swimming which fit perfectly to the islands environment.

Convenient and well equipped!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Maggie's Place was unforgettable. This was our first time coming to Bald Head Island and Richard helped us know how to fully experience all that the island has to offer. When we arrived, we decided to explore the island and discovered that Maggie's Place was close to everything. The beach is a short walk or golf cart ride away. The market took about 10 minutes by golf cart but was a really pleasant ride. The Bald Head Island Club is less than 5 minutes away by golf cart. The actual house was beautiful and well equipped. We decided to cook all of our meals and his kitchen had everything you could possibly want or need. My three boys are athletic and enjoyed using the Bald Head Island Club to work out, play tennis and golf. My mom and I loved sitting on the uncrowded beach that was very close to the house. As far as the actual house goes, it was beautiful. The beds were comfortable and the living room was a great spot to hang out, play games and watch TV. All in all, we had a great time and hope to return.

Maggies Place Escape

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great stay at Maggie’s Place. Everyone had a great time exploring all the island had to offer. The children and grand-children visited every beach access and spent considerable time doing so. We older folks (in our 70's) enjoyed the nature around the island, the Live Oaks, Painted Buntings, Terns, Brown Thrushes, Gators and especially the Conservancy and their work with the Turtles. The beaches, ocean views, with dolphin activity are a real plus. The weather was perfect with early morning rain that had no effect on daily activities. The BHI club access for dining and pool plus two golf carts gave us all a lot more flexibility. The owner has thought of everything that might be needed, games, movies, beach accessories, coolers, bicycles with helmets and very comfortable beds. The owner is gracious and a pleasure to deal with by providing very detailed and helpful information. And, there is very flexible access to the mainland if needed. We highly recommend this location be considered.

Lovely spot on a lovely island!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Maggie's place for a week. The home is in a great location - close to the marina and BHI Club (the pool). There is beach access across the street, but we chose to go a little further to a different beach access each day. Taking the golf carts around the island is fun - so you don't mind having to drive a little bit to get to the beach or pool!

Maggie's place is a traditional beach house - no extra frills, but all you need for a great week. My almost 4 year old loved trying out the bikes (and helmets provided!), and we were happy for the provided beach toys and pool noodles. Richard was a wonderful host - kind, approachable, and clearly wanted us to have a remarkable vacation -and we did!

Maggie's Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Baldhead and Maggie's Place had everything we needed and more. It was not far from the beach, marina, Market and the clubhouse was awesome! When we walked in the house, it was so clean and tidy. We reached out to the owners and they were so kind, helpful and kept us very informed of the happenings during our stay. We appreciate them sharing their home with us. I will definitely recommend Maggie's Place to others.

Great rental and an awesome owner!

  • 4 of 5

It was a pleasure to rent Maggie's Place! Richard is a wonderful host. He sent us emails leading up to our stay so that we knew what to expect, where to eat, what to do and how to navigate the island. It was so helpful to arrive feeling as if we had been to the island before. Great communication leading up to and after our visit to Bald Head Island. We knew exactly what to do and who to contact locally if we had any issues. We had absolutely no problems during our stay. Maggie's Place feels like home. It is very comfortable and everything that you need is provided including two golf carts and bikes. We visited the island for a wedding and Maggie's Place was conveniently located to all the events that we attended. Thanks, Richard!

Would definitely come back

  • 4 of 5

We had a delightful long weekend staying at Maggie's Place. Richard, the owner, is friendly and attentive and makes sure you have all the information you need to have a great stay. We didn't cook dinners, but I cooked breakfast for our group each morning, and the kitchen was well equipped and easy to work in. There is no water view, but Bald Head Island is so lush that few properties truly have water views. Maggie's Place is conveniently located to everything - quick ride to the Marina; very short walk to the beach; and very quick ride to the club. Like most properties on the Island, Maggie's Place is quiet and peaceful. The house was a little buggy but nothing more than you expect to see on an island. Beach life is buggy - especially on an island as lush as this one. We've stayed at other properties on the Island and never bothered to pay extra for a temporary Club membership. Maggie's Place comes with the membership included and that turned out to be a great thing. We attended a Kentucky Derby party at the Club our first night - complete with big hats and mint juleps - and we even won a bottle of wine! The next day we spent the entire afternoon at the Club pool, which has ample shade for us fair skin folks. The ocean was too cold but the pool temp was great. There is a pool-side cafe at the Club called Pelican's and we were surprised by the excellent food quality - my shrimp tacos might have been my favorite meal all weekend. It's also nice that Maggie's Place comes with two golf carts that are in great working order. The bikes are fairly rusty, but again, there's no way to prevent that with exposure to salty sea air. Our family shares the same last name as the owner so we thought we'd finally found a long-lost relative who owns a beach house, but alas, we're not related. We wouldn't hesitate to rent Maggie's Place again for a future visit and like most visitors, we hated to leave.
