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.

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 Bald Head Island
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.

Welcoming and full of shat you need.
Maggie’s Place is how it sounds, relaxing. Absolutely Great floor plan, dated furnishings but so peaceful. My stay was too short to enjoy the many pitches and places to read and relax. Really short ride if you want to be at the harbor. Everything was there and friendly. Two comments....need a little more toilet paper for the first day and bring your own wine glasses! I would love to go back. And, all of the correspondence was helpful and welcoming. Thank you Richard, I’d love to live there. Best yo you in your new life role.
Very roomy home with lots of extras. Very near the beach, club house and village activities.
Maggie's Place has everything. Lots of porches and loads of tables and rocking chairs for those rainy days.
The bicycles and supplied beach equipment and toys makes for a very enjoyable family vacation.
The house is close to all the major activities and an easy walk or golf cart ride will get you to where your going in minutes. I definately will be back again.
Clean, great amenities, feels like home.
This home is full of space and amenities. We have rented many homes and this one delivers.
Enjoyed our stay!
Had a great time staying over Thanksgiving week! Richard was great to work with - terrific communicator and immediately had someone out to the house when we needed a minor repair. The house is a bit dated but location was great.
Great place on BHI, owner is excellent to work with!
We had a great time, well furnished home, had everything we needed!
Bald Head Island is Fantastic!
Overall, our trip to Bald Head Island was just what the doctor ordered. Very relaxing. We did nothing but go to the beach, enjoy the ocean and pools, observe the significant amount of nature on the island and fish. Kids loved that the only means of transport on the island were golf carts. A few things about Maggie's Place:
- To be honest, the amount of time that we spent outside far exceeded our time at the house, so we weren't actually there too much. Lots to do on the island!
- The owner, Richard Walsh, was incredibly responsive to all of my email inquiries. For example, I sent him a list of a few items that weren't working at the place and he had a repairman at the house the next day. In all our years of renting, I don't think we've ever had a more responsive owner...
- The place needs a little TLC. Nothing major.
- We were a little disappointed that there wasn't a 6 six golf cart (that was in the promo materials). Again, not a huge deal, but we have a bigger family and always had to take 2 carts everywhere.
- A membership at the Bald Head Island club is included and the kids loved the pool there. You can pay a couple hundred extra to get a temp membership at the Shoals Club (Richard is a member there, so you're essentially his guest...), which has a great pool overlooking the ocean and beach chairs/umbrellas/towels. If you spend a lot of time at the beach, like us, it's worth it...
Historic guided tours, guided bird walks, turtle nesting nature tours (during season). Deep sea charters, Champion croquet courts, camp and programs for kids. Ideal for weddings.
