About Anne Rex

Both Gary and Anne are retired and make Bald Head Island their home. Gary continues consulting work as a PhD Chemist and Anne, a retired United Methodist Pastor, enjoys her new job...a real estate agent on the Island. Both continue other passions, Gary's love of the outdoors takes him not only to the closest fishing hole, but to be a through hiker on the Appalachian Trail, and the Pacific Crest Trail. Anne continues her work in raising funds for food, water and shelter for SERV Ministries in Kenya, as well as her trips to Kenya to The House of Hope that has adopted 60 children. Both, Anne and Gary, originally from Ohio and have lived in Michigan, West Virginia, and Georgia. Even though all of those places have been home, Bald Head is where are hearts are. Their three children, Tony, Leslianne and Daniel have made Bald Head the only place for fun and relaxation.

Anne Rex purchased this house in 2011

Why Anne Rex chose Bald Head Island

We first visited Bald Head in 1996 and bought our first beach home. We owned for several years and after selling that home we continued to come back each year and rented many homes. The island continued to call us back and so here we are again...this time we are not is ours!!!!

We love our home. It is the perfect location! It is about 100 yards from the beach access at the corner of Black Skimmer and South Bald Head Wynd. Of course, since the island is not very big, getting places is a breeze from most anywhere. It may not be the biggest, newest, most lavish, place on the island, but it is home.

What makes this house unique

I can walk to the beach in a couple of minutes, no one has to drop me off

Every room has plenty of storage for all our needs

The decks are wonderful. It is like adding two outdoor rooms to what you already have.

The outdoor shower under the house is great. Hot and cold running water for rinsing off anytime of the year as well as taking an outdoor shower. I use it all the time and it keeps me from bringing in all the sand from the beach!! It is also a great place to wash off our dog Auggie every day!

It is the place that we love to be together. It is about family and memories.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the use of your home for our family vacation. It was our very first time here and I believe we did as much as possible while here…crabbing, fishing, swimming, Old Baldy, alligator hunting (we saw him), the conservancy and lots of riding around the island. Oh! We are a lot! It is very beautiful here!

We had a flat tire. Called Anne and while we were out kayaking she made sure it was fixed before our return. We can't wait to come back.

What a joy to return to This wonderful house... and to meet the wonderful Anne. Once again we had a delightful time recharging our batteries, exploring the changes in BHI since our last visit, laughing and relaxing, and taking long walks on the beach. Beejie dog agrees that this is the best place ever. Thank you for sharing it, and thank you for being so flexible with arrangements. I hope we can return soon.

Great home with easy access to the beach, BHI club, and the marina

  • 5 of 5

Aunt Annie's was the perfect house for our first vacation to BHI. The location is going to be hard to beat - it is so convenient to a public beach access, the BHI club, the marina, and a quick ride to the nature preserve walks, old baldy and the maritime market. We loved the decor of the house, the kitchen was well stocked, golf carts were great, and the single floor layout with enclosed front/back decks were perfect for young children (no stairs to worry about). We saw a gator just three streets down on the golf course, witnessed two loggerhead turtles making their journey to the ocean, and a few deer in the forest on our hike. We had the perfect relaxing vacation and can't wait to go back next year. We will definitely be staying at Aunt Annie's every time!

Clean and comfortable home on a beautiful island.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this home with our 3 adult children. We enjoyed the open living area and the close proximity to the beach access. Anne was wonderful and attentive to any questions we had about the house and the surrounding areas on the island as well. It was a restful and wonderful time for all of us!
