About the property

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.

About Richard Walsh

I am 68 and my wife is 66 (and getting older as I type). We are 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.

We enjoyed Maggie's place very much. The house was well maintained and the owners were very conscientious. We loved the island. It is quaint and lovely. We all loved exploring the island on the golf carts and on bikes.

Great Family Times at Maggie's Place!

  • 5 of 5

Maggie's Place was a great fit for our family vacation over New Years. We are a family of five in all and were very comfortable. I can not say enough about how helpful the owner(Richard) was supplying detailed information to make our trip effortless. The house was very well equipped, organized, clean, comfortable, and priced. We also really enjoyed the convenient location of the house on the island. I highly recommend Maggie's Place.

Great House, Great Isand, Great Time!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I visited Bald Head Island for a family wedding this November and were fortunate enough to rent Maggie's Place for our stay. The house is everything it says it is, very spacious very clean and has everything you and your family/friends may need for a stay. For the location and amenities (2 golf carts, bikes, passes to the BHI Club, etc) you can't beat the price or the attentiveness of the owner. Richard (the owner) was great to deal with and would forward along the daily BHI newsletter which gave you insights to what's going on at the island, breakfast and lunch specials at the market and other important Island news, it really gives you a sense of the happenings and helps to build the excitement leading up to your trip.

Maggies place was a great place to stay on Bald Head Island

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week on Bald Head Island at Maggies Place. It was not right on the water but that was barely an inconvenience due to the water being only a couple hundred yards away and with the golf carts provided by the owner, it was real easy to get to. Maggies Place itself was great. It had everything we needed for our vacation. We were there with 4 adults and an 18 mon. old. The house was beautiful and spacious and had everything we needed from a well stocked Kitchen with plenty of pots, pans and silverware. It also had everything that was needed for the beach, from boggie boards, sand toys, umbrella's and fishing and crab catching equipment. It also had everything for the baby, from strollers to cribs to even a running stroller. Pretty much, you name it, it had it. They also had an abundance of Bicycles (although we ended up pretty much just using the golf carts for everything) They also had everything for a rainy day too (although our weather was perfect) from books to games to TV's with a multitude of channels. They also had 2 golf carts for our use as well which were in great shape. The Island only allows golf carts on the roads (other than service vehicles that would do deliveries and/or utility type vehicles and your occasional PD or FD vehicle) The golf carts could go just about anywhere on the island. We used ours to visit different beaches as well as trips to the stores, restaurants and Ferry. Richard (the owner) was phenomenal with information about the island as well, if there was anything we need for information or if there were issues at the house. One of the AC units had gone out before we arrived on the weekend but he made arrangements for a portable AC unit to be brought in and the repairman was in for the system, first thing Monday morning and took care of it right away. If I had a question, I could text or email him and he got right back to me with the information need. The beach near the house was on the West side of the island so the water was fairly calm which was great with the baby but the East side beaches were only about a 10-15 drive by golf cart through picturesque roads. This is were the waves were much bigger for boggie boarding or body surfing. None of the beaches were crowded at all. I think the highlight of our visit was watching the Bald Head Island Conservancy do a turtle nest excavation to count how many turtles had hatched. They also found live ones that were then let go. That was very cool to watch
