- Welcome to Life on the Sea -
After renting on Bald Head Island for many years, our family purchased an older home and completely rebuilt/remodeled the house. Professionally decorated and designed to maximize comfort and luxury, Life on the Sea is equipped for a fun and relaxing vacation for your family and friends.
We have five comfortable and tastefully decorated bedrooms (Two masters - one downstairs and one upstairs) each with private bath. Four of the rooms are oceanside with decks. The bunkroom offers a fun sleeping arrangement for the kids.
The first floor boasts a large living area with 50-inch, flat screen HD TV and Direct TV with large dining table that seats eight. The entire front of the house is lined with 5 1/2 foot windows (and three skylights) facing the ocean which fills the main living area with loads of natural light and gorgeous views.
The open gourmet kitchen features Thermador appliances, granite counter tops and is flanked on two sides by a breakfast bar that seats a total of five. A dry bar, stocked with a variety of glassware, offers a beverage refrigerator and ice maker.
The upstairs loft has a comfortable seating area with 55 inch, flat screen HD TV with Direct TV, along with a game table. In addition, window seats in the dormers provide the perfect spot to read a book. Painted hardwood floors are throughout the house.
A large laundry room is also on the first floor.
Decking expands the width of the house and is outfitted with several adirondak and rocking chairs. Under the house is a large, clean, outside shower and several beach toys, including boogie and skim boards. Beach towels are also provided. The house comes with a 6-seater and a 4-seater golf cart.
Our guests have the opportunity to rent a temporary Lifestyle Membership to the Bald Head Island Club which offers golf, tennis, a fitness club, a pool, along with casual and fine dining. Pricing varies with time of year.
If you are interested in purchasing a temporary membership, we will supply you the form and you can contact and pay the club directly.

Five Stars! Our party of 10 enjoyed a wonderful spring break week at Life on the Sea! The home offered plenty of room and privacy for our group of 4 adults and 6 college students. The home is definitely a great vacation spot for all ages and occasions! We love to cook and enjoyed the well-appointed kitchen. The beachfront location is ideal and the views from the house are magnificent. The home was very clean and so nicely decorated. It was nice to have two golf carts to explore the island. Lots of fun was had by all! We will definitely be back and will recommend this lovely home to all our family and friends!

We enjoyed our stay at Life on the Sea! The location is ideal. We were so happy to find nice beach chairs. The layout worked well for us and we appreciated having private bathrooms off of each bedroom and a separate space for the kids to watch movies. The views and the light in the house because of its windows and its openness make it an uplifting place to be.
We spent a wonderful week here for our daughter's wedding. The house is incredible! We enjoyed being across the street from the ocean. Our 80-year-old grandmother appreciated having her room on the main floor and she had no difficulty with the steps going to the beach. Interestingly we discovered bioluminescent photo plankton on the beach. Stomping the sand or swishing your foot on the sand at night create a dazzling sparkle show. Amazing. The property manager was so helpful and everything went so smoothly could not have asked for a better place or a better property manager.
Rating: 5 stars
We really enjoyed this house. Very clean. Great outdoor spaces. Great bedroom designs. Kitchen is well appointed. Internet is good but a little up and down. Not likely owners fault, think it was provider. Spectacular views.
