About Betsy Barr

We've been coming to Bald Head for more than 15 years when my father bought a home on the island. We really love the beauty of the island - from the beaches to the maritime forest. We bought our first property in 2002, and when a property became available in the new Keepers Landing Community, we quickly moved there as we felt it was a perfect area to vacation with our small children. We have many good friends who own in Keepers Landing, and there is a real sense of community here. All the kids play together, and the parents can sit on any of the front porches to spend time together. It's a great atmosphere. We love our home here and try to spend as much time on the island as possible!

Betsy Barr purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Betsy Barr chose Bald Head Island

We loved the open floor plan and the beaded board features of the house when we first looked at it! The house gets great sunlight, but is protected by the trees nearby. We have a beautiful cedar tree on one side and a palm tree literally at our master bedroom window!

What makes this cottage unique

Accessible only by ferry or private boat, Bald Head is incredibly relaxing. No cars, no traffic. Travel is by golf cart, bike or foot, with island speed limit of 18mph. With approximately 14 miles of beaches, a maritime forest, the Shoals Club, the Bald Head Island Club, the Bald Head Island Conservancy with its great summer camp programs, there are an amazing number of things to do! There is no better feeling than when the ferry docks at Bald Head Marina!!

It was a great mini-vacay! We plan on returning to Baldhead in the future, and when we do, we will absolutely stay here again!

The Pictures Do Not Do Justice

  • 4 of 5

Pluses: the back (landscaped and lit and gas BBQ) patio area which is not quite included in the pics is wonderful. Backs to the deep "enchanted forest" as we called it and is quite private (or at least much more so than other properties in Keepers Landing). The outdoor shower is great..makes any OBX one look silly. The house is well appointed and, while the furnishings might need updated, everything is comfortable. This is a very cute house in a great BHI neighborhood!

Minuses: plan on spending a good hour to scub your golf cart. It is stored outside (most BHI rentals have them in a mini-garage). Also the owners have dogs. So the furnishings feel, for lack of a better term, doggie-warn. And there are fleas in the house..allot.

Nice home

  • 3 of 5

We had a great time on the island during our vacation. The home was very nice and had pretty much everything we needed. One of the biggest hurdles for me to overcome was that there was a bit of a bug problem (roach/Palmetto Bugs) in and around the home, but we were told that it's normal for this time of year. It was still a bit unnerving to come home to these bugs everyday, though, and did make it a little less than ideal at times. In the middle of the night, I woke up to use the restroom and there was a roach in my sink. Needless to say, that made it hard to get a good night's sleep thereafter. In addition, we couldn't sit out on the porch in the evenings due to the influx of roaches on the porch and all over the chairs.

We also had a bike that wasn't working when we arrived to the house and the next morning they had sent someone out to fix it. That was great, as my kids were very excited about family bike rides. The kitchen was well stocked and my kids had a blast playing chess everyday! The home is very nicely decorated and felt very clean and well maintained.

Our children also enjoyed the beach toys, but were disappointed that the boogie board was broken. The chairs that were provided were a great addition to our beach days, but the umbrella was also broken and didn't work for us.

All in all, our stay was good, but there were a few things that were not quite up to par to make it a perfect stay. If all of the above were not an issue, there is no doubt that we would give the home a 5 star review.

Thank you for sharing your home with us. Bald Head Island has come to have a very special place in our hearts.

Keeper's Landing is a Keeper!!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot boast enough about this cute little place! In our opinion, its the best location on the island if you are not looking for something huge & expensive right at the water. Its only a short ride in the golf cart to East Beach & you could actually walk it if you didn't have things to carry.. Its also a nice short walk to the Keepers Landing pier that over looks the marsh lands. The owners were a pleasure to work with. Everything fell right into place with no worries. They provide lots of extra's in the house, so you don't have to haul a lot with you. As a couple, we only had to take two totes of food & one big suitcase. No beach towels needed, linens, umbrella or chairs! It was nice having coffee on the back screened in porch every morning & we actually had 3 young bucks on the back deck one morning. Great place to stay!!

Beautiful well maintained home in secluded setting with easy access to everything

  • 5 of 5

Everything was "as promised". The house was well maintained and looked "almost new". The air conditioning worked great and was very quiet. The beds were very comfortable. The two main baths were spacious. Overall, for a two bedroom house, I thought that the house was rather spacious and was very comfortable for accommodating four people.

One of the essentials that may not be addressed as much as within other reviews, is the location of the house which is "off the beaten path" , yet minutes away from everything. The location is excellent. The Shoals was about 5 minutes away via golf cart, as was the beach. Several times my wife walked to and from the beach in the early morning to look for seashells. Additionally a private dock in the marshland is only a few minutes walk from the home and is a nice place to spend an evening (or night) fishing for whatever follows the tide in the creek. Kids and adults can have a great time fishing from the dock. Also, the Market was about a ten minute golf cart ride away for purchasing any items forgotten and not packed for the vacation. And even with the house being on the opposite side of the island from the marina, travel time between these two points is less than twenty minutes if you bother to keep tabs, as the pathway is "canopied" with trees and vegetation and is a treat in itself to travel. All in all, this is a very quiet and peaceful neighborhood. While sitting on the front porch we were able to watch deer cross through the homes. Squirrels play in the trees all day. The location "adds value" to the the house.

If we can make a return trip to Bald Head Island, we will certainly be looking at staying at this #13 Keepers Landing again.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

This house provided a fabulous stay for our family of four on our first vacation to Bald Head Island. The house was well stocked, which made the whole packing-for-the-ferry experience very easy -- my only complaint would be that I felt like there were not enough bath towels (4), washcloths (3), and hand towels (3), though it did not end up being a huge deal since we were able to do laundry on the property. Having beach towels provided was a huge plus!

The neighborhood of Keepers Landing proved to be very quiet and peaceful, and its proximity to everything was perfect. It was just a very short golf cart ride to the beach and the Sea Turtle Conservancy, and it really was not much further to the Maritime Market (and, besides, with golf cart travel on an amazingly beautiful, tree-tunneled road, who cares about how length the drive is to anywhere? ;) ).

The owners have two young daughters, so OUR two young daughters were thrilled to open up the toy box in the living room and find an abundance of toys to play with. They were nearly as content to play at home as they were to explore the beach and the rest of the island!

The owners of the house were very helpful and quick to respond to any and all questions and concerns. Thank you for making our stay one to remember!
