We have been enjoying Bald Head Island since its inception and we have enjoyed watching it grow. Our family has grown up spending summers and holidays enjoying the majestic scenery and all the Bald Head has to offer. We chose to purchase and build in the Maritime Forrest for its privacy and calming affect. We've accumulated ideas and artifacts throughout our travels that have inspired our design for the home and we hope you will enjoy as much as we have.
The Maritime Forrest is quietly nestled near the center of the island and offers beautiful privacy while being in close proximity to the beaches and all that Bald Head has to offer. This home and property certainly is a "must see"!
The pictures and videos of this beautiful property does not give justice to how unique and exquisite this house really is. The owner, Harper, greeted us at the house when we arrived from our shuttle and was very hospitable and gave us all the ins and outs of the house. My family enjoyed the house so much that I had to convince many of them to get outside and enjoy the rest of the island. The layout of the house provides various spaces for privacy yet is very open. I especially appreciated the artistic touches and various woods used throughout the house yet at the same time a very functional, down-to-earth feel and you feel as well a connection with nature. I have traveled around the world significantly but found this to be a perfect oasis for my family to have great time together and re-connect but still have that private space we all need as well.
This property was as lovely as the photos promised. It was exceptionally clean, well appointed and conveniently located. It easily accommodated 4 couples, all had private rooms and baths, and transportation (2 golf carts and three bikes) easily met all of our needs. The owner was extremely accommodating and supportive. I unhesitatingly recommend it to anyone who wants a luxurious "get away" in a lovely island setting.
The previously posted reviews of Morning Light perfectly describe this incredible home. The website photos and video convinced us this was the perfect place to book our end-of-summer family vacation. Our experience in this unbelievable home was outstanding. We look forward to our next stay here already! To wake up every morning in this home in the forest was a treat in itself. Everyday we discovered something new and unique to love about this home. The screened living areas and screened sleeping room offer boundless visual and physical beauty. This peaceful, spa-like home is sited amidst ages-old trees; a small clearing provides an intimate spot for watching baby fawns graze grass. The convenient outdoor shower compares to an outdoor spa with rain head shower faucet and a dressing area conveniently located. You are clean and refreshed from the salt and sand before stepping indoors to a wide open kitchen equipped with everything you need to entertain. The office/TV room stores a huge choice of games for all ages. The large beautifully crafted dining table is the perfect place to enjoy games and to enjoy a freshly cooked meal with friends and family. Planted potted herbs are freshly abundant. The large luxurious leather sofa seats a large group and makes the perfect place for charades, or just relaxing after a busy day. The reading nook is sunny and welcoming - encouraging one to pick up a book from an eclectic selection of reads. Peaceful, soulful, restful and invigorating - this home makes one feel alive and in touch with nature and with one another. Morning, noon and evening offers different points of view with sunlight filtering through the trees, into the strategically placed windows/sunroof spotlighting the rich woods and quality hardwares used throughout. The staircase is a work of art. The bedrooms had extremely comfortable beds and linens and tasteful, understated elegant and unique accompaniments. No shortage of blankets and throws either!
The owner personally picked up the first of our party (who arrived by boat), helped to unload, and introduced us to Morning Light. We learned on our trip that he is a very active business owner on BHI. He is a friend to all and works as hard as any employee to ensure guests at Morning Light and to the island itself enjoy a quality vacation. Morning Light is truly a treasure! 10 out of 10!
For the second year in a row this magical property provided our family and friends with a wonderful close to the summer season. Morning Light and its tranquil surroundings invite you to slow down and enjoy what's important -- whether it's reading in a quite nook flooded with natural light or playing board games with family under giant live oaks. The house itself is a work of art; with too many exotic details to list, yet, still invokes an inviting spa-like approach throughout the entire house. While secluded it's remarkably close to area amenities and a short ride to the beach via bike or golf cart. The owners are terrific as well. Yes - this is our happy place :)
Not enough words to express the beauty and peacefulness of this home. The windows, woodwork and attention to detail in Morning Light were truly beyond our expectations. We cannot wait to come back to Bald Head and stay in the house again!!
Impressive property. We had a great time. Bald Head is always first class and so was Morning Light. Loved waking up in the coastal "jungle" and then taking a short walk, run, or cart ride to the beach. Almost like two vacations in one!
Bald Head Island, Southern Coast, Coastal, North Carolina, USA (30 Miles from Wilmington, North Carolina, USA) --- Perched on an abundant sized forest lot, this Japanese inspired home co-exists and interacts with an incomparable stretch of maritime forest, highlighted by a three hundred year old live oak, bamboo and palm trees. Enjoy all the excitement and adventure that Bald Head Island has to offer: minutes from beautiful remote beaches, golf, sailing, nature trails, kayaking, fishing, historic landmarks, surfing, boutique shopping, and more... then retire to Morning Light; a secluded and relaxing retreat. There are 2 golf carts at Morning Light for your convenience: 1 x 4 passenger and 1 x 6 passenger.
