- Welcome to Life on the Sea -

After renting on Bald Head Island for many years, our family purchased an older home and completely rebuilt/modernized the home in 2015 and freshly refreshed it in 2023.

Professionally decorated and designed to maximize comfort and luxury, Life on the Sea is equipped for a fun and calming vacation for your family and friends.

We have five comfortable and attractively decorated bedrooms (Two primaries - 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 features a enormous living area with 50-inch, flat screen HD TV and Spectrum TV with sizable dining table that seats eight. The entire front of the home 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 beautiful vistas.

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, outfitted with a variety of glassware, offers a drink refrigerator and ice maker.

The upstairs loft has a comfortable seating area with 55 inch, flat screen HD TV with Spectrum TV, along with a game table. In addition, window seats in the dormers provide the ideal spot to read a book. Painted wood floors are throughout the home.

A huge laundry room is also on the first floor.

Decking expands the width of the home and is outfitted with numerous adirondak and rocking chairs. Under the home is a huge, clean, outside shower and multiple beach toys, including body and skim boards. Beach towels are also included. The home 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 exercise club, an broad aquatic area (kid and adult pools) 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.

Parties or events are not allowed in the home.

Five Stars! Our event of 10 adored a amazing 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 adore to prepare and appreciated the well-appointed kitchen. The beachfront location is ideal and the vistas from the home are lavish. The home was very clean and so generously decorated. It was nice to have two golf carts to discover the island. Lots of fun was had by all! We will definitely be back and will recommend this gorgeous 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 vistas and the light in the home because of its windows and its openness make it an uplifting place to be.

We spent a incredible week here for our daughter's wedding. The home is magnificant! 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 nighttime 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.

Rental property booking tips:

Money saving strategies:

  • Summer is high season in the Wilmington, NC area. To get the most suitable vacation home for your budget, we highly recommend reserving in the Spring or Fall. You'll enjoy lower rates, better selection, warm weather and the absence of giant crowds at restaurants, beaches, and activities. Many vacationers use this method to find larger homes within budget, or to reserve a beach front vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable during the high season.
  • Reserve your vacation rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules often become available twelve months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many groups reserve their Summer vacations during Christmas and Thanksgiving get-togethers. Book before these holidays for best selection.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective vacation rental company or host if your vacationing group qualifies for a special promotion or discount.
  • Property managers frequently offer renters an option to add trip insurance. Trip insurance, which will generally cost between 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed time as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel stay or extra gasoline expenses. Trip insurance can be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your host for more information.
  • Often, rental management companies supply Wilmington, NC area visitor guide magazines which include coupons, either offered directly by local companies, or through a relationship with the rental management company and the business itself. You can also find Wilmington, NC visitors guide magazine and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

Make a plan and choose the best Wilmington, NC rental:

  • Start by having your group decide on date ranges and a spending budget.
  • Determine how many bedrooms and the bed configuration your family needs. Stunning Oceanfront - Expansive Views - Central Location near Market & BHI Club has 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Wilmington, NC rental home search.
  • Specific descriptions of bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is normally accessible on booking pages. If you don't see them listed, email or call the property owner before booking the rental. Remember that most property listings specify the max. guest capacity, which typically includes pull-out couches and bunk beds. You'll need to determine what configuration is best for your vacation family.
  • Is your group looking for specific amenities? Most websites include search filters for amenities. Use these to your advantage to find the perfect rental home.
  • Suitable accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for those with limited mobility. Make certain to ask about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.
  • If your group is traveling with pets, filter your search for a pet-friendly property. Make sure to ask for details on breed, weight, and type restrictions. Usually, hosts charge additional pet fees.

Advice for a smooth stay:

  • Add the owner's phone number to your phone. Take a copy of arrival/departure procedures.
  • To make certain damages are not attributed to your family's stay, inspect the property for any problem areas upon your arrival. Get in touch with the property manager right away to record any issues. If there is a dispute about who is responsible, having a record of concerns and contact attempts will be very helpful.
  • Property managers are great sources of help! Feel free to ask questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Respecting quiet hours and parking policies can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. Be a good neighbor. You will magnify your chance to make local friends, and resident neighbors are often an incredible source for finding the best local restaurants, beaches, and hangouts.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Local residents can often help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to take kids for a treat, have a great night out, or the best spots for fishing?
  • Keep your rental home locked while you're away! Don't let thieves ruin your vacation.
  • Double-check the vacation property to confirm that you've packed all of your family's items on check-out day. Check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden belongings. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Remember to leave a review! Hosts rely on great feedback to inspire future bookings. They'll be thankful for your review. Alternatively, if something went awry, other families will will be grateful for your feedback and help them have the best future vacation. Please be fair with your feedback If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the owner had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded quickly to fix it.

The former, as described by Lanier, is the more commercialized of the two destinations and features a boardwalk, outdoor dining options and a plethora of weekly activities including fireworks, live music, amusement park pop-ups, and movies under the stars. Kure Beach offers a more residential feel with its fishing pier, intimate restaurants and family favorite, North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher.More water fun awaits, too. “There is a harbor and a canal that feed into the intercoastal. We have several properties on the harbor so guests can bring their boat, kayak, [or jet ski] and travel between islands,” says Lanier.   A stay with Victory Beach Vacations is an annual pilgrimage for most. “A large percentage of guests are previous guests. Some even reserve the same property for the next year as they’re checking out,” Lanier says. “It’s almost like it’s their personal vacation home.”   Even before guests arrive at their vacation destination, the Victory Beach Vacations’ website greets them with a live beach cam and exquisite aerial footage of both Carolina and Kure Beaches.
