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!!

Very nice house!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying in this house. We had everything we needed, golf cart for transportation. The bikes were fun to ride. We loved the shower in the master bath, it was so big. The outside shower was very useful after a day at the beach. I would recommend this house for your stay.

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!!
