Seek no more, this house has everything you need for a memorable BHI vacation

  • 5 of 5

Shell Seekers was the perfect house for our two-family vacation (two couples, 6 children ages 4-17, and one dog). We had plenty of room with bed space to spare. It is convenient to the Maritime Market, BHI Club, and the beach, and has everything you will need. The owners have thought of everything, from oils and spices in the kitchen to full-sized bottles of good quality spa products in the bathrooms. They even stock toilet tissue and paper towels! You can tell they have put their hearts into this house and have a talent for hospitality. The house itself is charming, with thoughtful, artistic details in every corner and a layout that is at once spacious and cozy, with a nice mix of places both to gather and to get away. We especially enjoyed the large dining porch on the first floor--how nice to stay in a house that actually has enough dining space for a large group to gather together! After a long morning on the beach, the lounging porch on the second floor was a great place to curl up and read a book or take a nap, and was also a quiet space to enjoy morning coffee before the children awoke. We also liked the varied artwork throughout the house and the Latin motto in the upstairs foyer. The youngest children loved the third-floor bunk bedroom in the treetops. We cooked every night in the well-equipped kitchen and appreciated the convenience of the gas grill, as well as the coffee station and fridge in the huge crofter. We spent many hours beachcombing and had fun being "Shell Seekers" ourselves--we didn't find any quite as magnificent as the specimens lining the porch railings, but made happy memories all the same. The owners were friendly, responsive, and helpful and offered many useful tips and reminders to make our arrival and departure smooth and trouble-free. We would happily stay here again and highly recommend beautiful Shell Seekers to anyone looking for a lovely place to stay on Bald Head Island.

Comfort and convenient

  • 5 of 5

My group of 7 had a great time in this beautiful home. We had plenty of room for the adults and two toddlers. The location of then house was perfect situated in the middle of the island with easy access to groceries, shops, restaurants, and of course the beautiful beach. We would definitely stay here again. The owners were easily accessible for questions and supplies the home with what's needed. Thank you for our wonderful stay!

Above and beyond!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a romantic weekend getaway. Our trip was planned last minute and the owners were so accommodating. Since we booked in the off season, a lot of the restaurants and shops were closed. The owners let us know what was open and even gave us a few recommendations (this was so nice since it was our first time visiting the island). The house was even more beautiful in person than in the photos listed (I loved all the beach themed décor and beautiful paintings throughout the house). The attention to detail in every room was above and beyond for a rental in my opinion. Even though it was cold during our visit and we didn’t get to enjoy the beach or outdoors much, there was still plenty to do…aside from relaxing of course! The house was stocked with board games, cards, movies, magazines, and had cable/Wi-Fi. We cooked dinner 2 nights and the kitchen accommodations made it feel like we were cooking at home. Everything we needed was there for us to use and in wonderful condition (the spice drawer was amazing). I can’t say enough wonderful things. We will be back!

Amazing home and island

  • 5 of 5

We came here for our honeymoon and it was so special. The house is gorgeous and all the little details, decorations and extra amenities make you feel like you really are at a home away from home. Everything about the house is inviting, comfy, and beautiful. It was perfect for a romantic getaway but the home would also be perfect for families or group of friends. There is so much to do in the home with movies, games, and books that even if you wanted to stay in, you would be entertained. There is also so much to do on the island that even being there for a whole week, we weren't able to explore everything. Everyone on the island is so friendly and it is very easy to make friends. The owners are amazing and it is very obvious the love they have for this home and all the guests that visit. I would recommend this home to not only our family and friends but anyone who is looking for a great vacation experience. We will definitely be coming back.

Beautiful home on a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home! Our family has rented this home for a number of summer vacations. The owners are very easy to work with.

The kitchen is fully stocked to help with all your cooking needs. There is plenty of room with all the bedrooms and you won't find a more beautiful and roomy crofter. There are 2 very inviting screened in porches to enjoy your morning coffee on or to enjoy reading your book while relaxing.

The home is full of wonderful art work, we see something new every year.

Find a shell and add it to the Shell Seekers collection!
