For centuries, seamen have used beacons to guide them safely through oceans, channels and rivers. While you won’t find treacherous waters in the marina at Bald Head Island, you will find the latest addition to a select portfolio of rental accommodations. Positioned majestically across from the entrance to the marina and located in the heart of Harbor Village, Beacons Watch offers over more than 5,000 square feet with 10 bedrooms each with their own full bath, and open space for corporate group meetings. The interior is a pleasant blend of West Indies and Carolina coastal décor featuring hardwood floors and elegant fabrics throughout.. Eight of the ten rooms are located in the main house. A handicap equipped suite featuring a king bed is located on the first floor. The second floor offers a sitting area and five suites with king beds. On the third floor are two suites: one with a queen bed and daybed, and the other with a king bed- a great configuration for families traveling with small children. All suites in the home have balconies with lovely views of the harbor, and easterly facing rooms have a view of Old Baldy. Adjoining the main house are two individually accessed crofter cottages each containing two twin beds, a full bath, and porch sitting area. The laundry facility has its own entrance at the back of the main house, and is more than ample for a home of this size. As an added convenience a full bath is located on the first floor near the back door entrance. A home this special wouldn't be complete without a gourmet kitchen and, true to the concept of self-catering, Beacons Watch offers a kitchen fit for a novice or professional chef.

Beacons Watch was truly the perfect house and location for a guest confined to a wheelchair! Wonderful handicap facilities and access. Delightful to be able to stroll through the village around the harbor, watch the boats, and walk to restaurants/ice cream parlor. Enjoyed the magnificent sunsets from the porch! The house accommodates large multi-generational family gatherings so comfortably! Would return to Beacons Watch in a heart beat!
Excellent experience at Beacons Watch!

We filled the rooms at Beacons Watch for a long weekend with close friends and family for our son's wedding. The home is gorgeous, spacious, well-equipped and appointed, and very comfortable for a crowd. Separate bathrooms for each bedroom, with unexpected amenities like magnifying makeup mirrors. Large bedrooms with comfortable beds. Beautiful views. and the kitchen - a cook's dream! We were never crowded or uncomfortable in any way, from the grandparents in the group to the not-yet-two-year-old. fantastic location!
