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 married on BHI and our son 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 Coastal North Carolina

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.

Awesome week on BHI!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home! Jim and Sharon are so easy to work with and their home is comfortable, charming, well maintained and well stocked! We loved going on bike rides and taking the kayaks out in the creeks. The option for a temporary membership at the BHI club was a real bonus - tennis, golf and swimming! The proximity to South Beach was great! What a fun, relaxing and memorable week with the family on BHI!!!!

Wonderful Home! Wonderful Owners!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home! We stayed for just a short time in March 2016, but we'll be back!! The owner stopped by right when we checked in to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay - so nice! There are 3 golf carts, several bikes, plenty of room and the home is beautifully decorated!! We appreciate the fact that the home is dog-friendly and we were able to bring our 2 pooches on vacation with us. I almost want to keep this home a secret all to myself, because it is definitely a winner!

Amazing House on an Amazing Island!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My whole family and I have stayed here the last two years and have fallen in love with the house. It is the best vacation we have ever taken, and plan on staying there every year in the future. Our grandkids, given the choice between Disney and the Hatchling house, choose the Hatchling House every year. The owners have the house stocked with all your needed items and take great care in making sure you are happy. We consider this our house for the week we are there and know that if you gave it a shot you too would fall in love with this place.

Looking forward to this year!!!!!!!!!!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Great house - loved the open kitchen and living room with the vaulted ceiling. Everyone was able to enjoy one another and visit without feeling cramped. Having 3 golf carts was wonderful for us because we were often going in different directions. I liked having 3 four-seaters rather than 2 six-seaters because of this. We ranged in age from 4 months to 76 and everyone had a wonderful time, including our 11 year old fur baby. We all enjoyed reading about the history of the house as well. Highly recommend.

Wonderful week with family and friends at a BHI "original"!!!

  • 5 of 5

LOVE this place - one of the original BHI homes (certified by the "Generator Society" membership on the wall - very cool!).

Tons of room for our family and another, and so great that they accept our furry buddies (what trip to BHI would be complete without our little labradoodle? he loves it as much as we do!). Kitchen fully stocked, rooms very nice, AC worked great.

I missed the "true" outdoor shower (this one was in the underground area - no breeze) but since I was watching the dog, I needed to give him a proper hosing every time anyway, so the hose became my outdoor shower too. They mean it when they say 10 o'clock checkout - we were fully packed and out, but had taken the kids for one more walk on the beach before taking them to the marina and wanted to use the bathroom. The cleaner was not happy that we were waiting downstairs (but we were really out of there - just sitting below the house in the drive). Totally understand though as they need to get it ready for the next set of renters. Next time will plan to be out by 9:00 to make sure we don't upset the schedule.

Thanks for opening your lovely home to us! Our kids will never forget learning to surf, seeing gators, and generally having the time of their lives!!!!

Amazing family reunion at the Hatchlings

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing week in a gorgeous, well-tended home. Especially enjoyed the open floor plan and vaulted ceilings in the living/dining/kitchen area, very airy and flooded with light w/ ample seating for dining and lounging for all 10 of us. Great central location, enjoyed time on the balcony star gazing. Enjoyed the golf carts, 3 out of 5 bikes were in good shape, kayak was a nice bonus as well as it being pet-friendly. The beach across the street was nice, very wide and clean, would have liked more of an ocean view but otherwise highly recommend this home.
