The dining table and seating is built in and comfortably seats 12. Four themed bedrooms and 2 baths are upstairs around a central common area with a game table.

We are the Harrisons, a family of five from Durham, North Carolina, who have been vacationing on Bald Head Island for 18 years. As renters for 6 years, and homeowners for 16 years, we know what you need for a no worries - Hakuna Matata - vacation.

Why Jan or Kevin Harrison chose Bald Head Island

We fell in love with the natural setting, beautiful beaches, and abundance of outdoor adventures available on Bald Head Island. We chose our home because it is not fancy but it is beautiful, spacious, and comfortable. When you are here, you read, relax, nap, visit with each other, play games, and unwind.

What makes this house unique

This home allows a large family to spread out and relax together. It is a good home for bringing grandparents and multigenertional families to Bald Head Island. Kayak use:

Fantastic House, Close to all of Bald Head's amenities!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed in this wonderful home twice now, and we have nothing but great things to say! Conveniently located near to the Marina, the BHI Club, the Maritime Market, and the beaches, everything is just a short golf cart ride away – the house provides two! The house is spacious, with enough room to easily sleep 10 people, and the common areas (especially the front and back decks!) are great for eating, unwinding, and playing games! The house is clean and the owners are responsive and great to work with! My family and I would definitely recommend staying here and visiting Bald Head! You won’t be disappointed 

Paradise! Hakuna Matata has it all....

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed at thiis home on several different occassions. Sometimes in the summer, and a few times in late winter. Regardless of outside temps we were never without something fun/entertaining to do. In the summer coffee on the screened porch nestled in the maritime forrest offers a serene start your island vacation. The kids loved the upstairs central gathering area where they could play games, cards etc.. on their own. The island location is perfect. In a matter of minutes we were at the beach, then off to the pool for lunch delivered pool side! The outside shower was the best! Nothing like showering under palm trees to really make you feel like you are on vacation! And the huge built in dining table has too many stories to tell! Perfect gathering spot to rehash the day. We will definitely be back.
