We grew up in NJ going to the Jersey shore - that is until we discovered Bald Head Island in 1982. We instantly feel in love with the island and bought a piece of property. Bald Head was so pristine with beautiful deserted beaches, a wonderful golf course and an abundance of wild life. We had found paradise.
Thanks to our discovery of Bald Head our extended family has been able to play together enjoying many happy times relaxing, surfing, playing golf and tennis, biking, etc. and of course celebrating many birthdays.
Lynn Barnard purchased this house in 2008
In 1990, after renting a house for 8 years we bought our own home. Our children grew up - one got married in Bald Head, the other honey mooned there. Then the grandchildren (7) and grand-dogs came. In 2008, we purchased our current home and renovated it in 2010 so we would have plenty of room for all. We loved the location - private with outstanding views, the sound of surf and birds, and only minutes from east beach where our children all surf and enjoy the beach.
Private with outstanding views with no homes in sight.
Sound of birds and surf.
Only minutes from private East Beach access.
Away from the summer crowds but still close to the market, golf course, pools and restaurants.
Thank you so much for an idyllic vacation. The house is lovely and perfect for two families. Everything we needed was here, and it was so easy to go to the beach and do other activities as well. We did several outings with the Bald Head Island Conservancy. On one outing our guide showed us a view with three ecosystems on the island - maritime forest, marsh and dunes. Then we came back to the house and discovered that there is an even better view with all three ecosystems from the house and deck!
This was our second time at the Barnard home. Everything was as wonderful as last year. The home is in a beautiful setting and the sunrises and sunsets are amazing. We are a family of 13 (children and grandchildren). Everyone enjoyed swimming,bicycling,surfing,bonfires on the Beach. The house is equipped with everything
You might need or want. Lynn and Joe are gracious hosts and are always available, if you need them. Our stay was as wonderful as last year and we have added more unforgettable memories to our lives. We would highly recommend this beautiful home to others. Thank you again Lynn and Joe
We just returned from our stay at the Barnard Beachhouse. House was extremely clean, well stocked and very beautiful. The marsh view is so wild and untamed-- it changes throughout the day. We loved the private beach access. We had a fantastic time and would highly recommend this home to others who want to great family vacation on Bald Head island!
This was our third year celebrating our Family Vacation at BHI. By far this was the best home for our family (14). The moment we walked upstairs and saw the spectacular view from the deck, we knew we had a winner. The house was exquisitely decoracted, large living area, dining area, 6 bedrooms and 6 1/2 baths. Every amenity you could wish for, three golf carts, bikes, ping pong table, 3 outdoor showers (the kids loved them). The homeowners Lynn and Joe were amazing always getting back to us with any question we had. The Grandchildren always had a smile on their faces as did the grown-ups. There was so much to do, swimming, surfing, crabing, biking, playing games. Every morning we enjoyed the incredible view from the deck, the marsh, birds, ocean, we even had a rainbow. Making treasured memories is what a vacation is all about and we made some wonderful memories. Everyone agreed, we would love to come back. Thank you Lynn and Joe for sharing your beautiful home with us.
This past June 2015, we decided to have our family vacation away from the Jersey Shore and to give Bald Head Island in North Carolina a try. We decided to use VRBO, and did we hit the goldmine.
The Barnard House has everything you needed plus some! The owners Joe and Lynn were the nicest and most gracious hosts we have ever met. Lynn would constantly return our emails with answers to our questions and mail us information on the island.
The Barnard House is on Middle Island surrounded by a forest of trees and a huge deck overlooking the marsh and the ocean beyond. Various birds were present throughout the day, as they fished the waters of the marsh. While the weather was quite warm, the air conditioning and many ceiling fans kept the house cool and comfortable day and night. The breezes off the water cooled the beautiful deck that stretches the length of the house. The short distance to the beach, the golf club, the marina, and the shops was a quick ride in the three golf carts or many bikes that the Barnards supply.
The house was the best equipped rental we have ever used, and it was easy to see that Lynn and Joe had worked hard to make their home family friendly. The rooms are spacious and furnished with style. The kitchen was a joy to cook in. The table seats 10 with 4 stools for extra guest at the counter. The open concept living space on the main level keeps everyone involved in the action. Another communal space downstairs provides a space for small groups to break a way for a time.
There is no need to bring your own beach chairs, beach towels, bikes, indoor or outdoor games and linens for beds and bathrooms because the Barnard’s home has it all.
Our next trip to Bald Head Island will definitely include staying at the Barnard House.
The Barnard home on Bald Head Island is absolutely wonderful! The view takes your breath away. The home should be featured in House Beautiful or Coastal Living.
Bald Head Island is accessible by a ferry which is fun to take. You get around the island with bikes or golf carts which the Barnards provide. The home has everything you might need from spices to beach towels. It's also perfect for large families and the downstairs family room is great for the children.
If we ever have the opportunity to return to Bald Head, this home would be our choice. Wonderful!!
This was our family's 12th BHI vacation. We have rented all over the island and often enjoy the opportunity to stay at new places each time. This was, BY FAR, the nicest house we have ever stayed at! It was the quintessential beach house! It was all decorated so wonderfully and had absolutely everything you could possibly need, from kitchen items, to bikes for all, and great carts to get around in! Lynn was so great to deal with and had answers to everything! This was an amazing week. We will be back and hope to stay in your lovely home again!
