About Janice Mackey

Our family consists of myself and my husband Brad. We have 3 grown sons along with 3 beautiful and wonderful daughters-in-laws. We currently have 2 grandsons and expecting twin granddaughters in March of 2018. It is truly a family home and we enjoy sharing it with others. We are originally from Oklahoma but have lived in NC for 24 years

Janice Mackey purchased this house in 2017

Why Janice Mackey chose Cape Fear Station

We purchased this property in Cape Fear Station because of the beautifully shaded streets, and quiet relaxing porches. The location is optimal; close to The Shoals Club, East Beach and the BHI Turtle Conversancy.

What makes this house unique

Our porches are our most loved feature about our home as we are avid readers. Bike riding on the quiet shaded streets of Cape Fear Station helps you to unwind and truly relax. There are very few places we have visited in our life that are as relaxing as our home here on BHI.

The Nest

  • 5 of 5

You will not want to leave The Nest! I promise!! This year we stayed here for the second time & we were as happy with it as we were the first time. The home is well furnished & beautiful. The porches are one of my most favorite aspects. Whether it's early morning on the front porch or late evening on the enclosed porch, you will enjoy your time there.

We have family of 5, so for us the size was ideal. The layout of the home also encourages togetherness. The lighting from all of the windows with shade cover from all of the trees are perfectly balanced. The golf carts are brand new. The garage area & outdoor shower are great. The grill & bikes are in excellent condition. The home is conveniently located near the East Beach (the best!) & the Shoals Club. Drives to the Marina through the Maritime Forest are always a great outing. We truly enjoy The Nest & everything Bald Head Island has to offer!

The property is well appointed and maintained. It is in a great location with shade/privacy yet close to the beach, Shoals Club, and BHI Conservancy. Beautiful biking and walking paths abound.
