Relaxing
A wonderful place to stay for a relaxing trip to Bald Head Island. Hiking, bike riding, beautiful views, and lots of dolphins! The house nicely situated, and oh so comfortable. We can't wait to come back.

Ideal vacation home
We stayed at this beautiful home for our family vacation and it exceeded all expectations! We loved sitting out on the deck and taking in the views during sunset. Plenty of room for everyone in the family— we especially loved the large accommodating dining table and the comfortable beds! From golf carts to beach chairs- everything you need for the perfect vacation is provided!

Spectacular Beach House
This is such a spectacular place, views are gorgeous, only steps to the beach, beds are wonderful, everything was in pristine condition, could not have booked a better place on the island. We have stayed on Bald Head several times in the past few years and none of the other rentals came close to this lovely property. Highly, highly recommend.

Outstanding home -- best views on the whole island!?
In our 14 years of coming to BHI, Secret O Life was THE BEST house we have stayed in. The views are much better than the pictures capture. In fact.....I think this home would be in the running for best views on the whole island because you can see sunrise, shoals, marsh, Old Baldy, AND sunset(!!) thanks to the strategically placed kitchen dining area. We enjoyed stargazing on the front balcony and because it's so close to the ocean there is a wonderful sea breeze. Being steps from the best beach access was just gloriously convenient, especially with little ones. The home was very comfortable and well-appointed. It had anything we could have wanted in the kitchen and everything was in great condition. As for extras - the beach chairs and boogey boards were in great shape, and there were tons of bikes --> I know those types of things are always subject to condition but as of Aug 2022 they were great. The large outdoor shower was much appreciated for cleaning off sand, and the expansive wrap around porch came in handy for storing our own beach items. Our kids love love lovvvvvved the coolest bedroom we have all ever seen and were sad when time came to leave. The only two negatives are things that can and should be promptly addressed: (1) Golf carts were super fast; however, the 4 seater's breaks did not work well and the parking break was finnicky. (2) The front door does not lock or unlock with a key. It can only be done from inside the home and even that is tricky because there is clearly something malfunctioning with the mechanism. Mgmt came and looked and agreed - said they would send maintenance person but I never saw anyone come by. Despite those two items we still had the best week ever at BHI!
