About keith hellmer
Our family discovered BHI in 1987. We love Bald Head, and the unique opportunity for our family to grow close to each other and to our Lord and Creator. Bald Head slows us down, gives our family the opportunity to play board games, to talk and enjoy the natural and beautiful environment. We have been homeowners on Bald Head Island since 2004. We are excited about purchasing this house in this location and have enjoyed decorating it and turning into a home away from home. Enjoy and please come back and visit! Thanks!
Why keith hellmer chose Cape Fear Station
We love Cape Fear Station because it is the newer side of the Island with close proximity to the Shoals Club (the best club on the island). Keepers Landing in Cape Fear is very special. Throughout the day we walk over to the Marsh Walk directly across from our home. Our favorite thing is to enjoy a pot of fresh blue crabs and fresh fish from the creek. The home itself is a reverse floor plan with all the living area upstairs. We loved the two ancient live oaks on the property too and the abundant outdoor living areas.
What makes this Cottage unique
It is rare in this day and age to be able to go someplace and have no worries about the kids and their safety ~ Bald Head is such a place. The lifestyle is slow and the opportunity for family quality time is what we love about the place.

Another fantastic stay!!!
This was our 4th stay at 22 Keepers Landing and it was as enjoyable as the previous visits! The house is clean and well stocked. The updated golf cart was an unexpected upgrade. The location is perfect for a quite week away from the stress and hustle and bustle, and the island itself is beautiful and full of welcoming people. It was a very blessed week of respite and relaxation as always!
Thanks to the Hellmer Family for sharing their beautiful home!
Wonderful as always
Second time staying in this house. I absolutely love being able to walk across the street to the marsh boardwalk. Beautiful place. Was perfect for our needs.
Would not stay here again
I'm sad to say we were not thrilled with this property. We did not expect perfection but expected better.
While some common areas in the home were cute, the bad outweighed the good. The house presents as very dingy on the outside and also needs some work on the inside. The bathroom adjoining the bunk room contains an old jetted tub that needs to be replaced. It does not look clean at all. (We did not want to bath our kids in it. )
I killed several cockroaches (one by accidentally stepping on it--yuck). I understand the house in located in the maritime forest, but still.
Teflon pans in the kitchen were absolutely disgusting. It's hard to comprehend that in this day and age of readily available pans.
The bikes were rusty and the golf cart was abused & had a broken windshield. The grills were in really bad shape as well. We were able to use the golf cart but everything together, it just did not seem as advertised.
Firstly, I am very sorry for your experience at our home. First off we do not own nor did we supply Teflon pans. All of our pans are triple aluminum with stainless steel bottoms. So if there were Teflon pans one of my guests would’ve brought them and left them. In terms of the exterior of the home it was completely repainted in November 2018. All of the siding and all the trim were painted on the exterior. We strive to maintain a home at a high-level and regret your experience. In terms of the golf cart windshield, I’ve already had it replaced. And looking at the photos it doesn’t appear as if it would’ve impeded you’re driving. We purchased a totally refurbished golf cart less than one year ago. Unfortunately always ready who maintains my cart on a weekly basis did not report the windshield to me as they were supposed to. I have an open policy with always ready to repair whatever needs to be repaired on my golf cart. I have reinforced that with always ready. In terms of the Jacuzzi tub, We had our maintenance company to come out last fall and clean out all the lines. As far as I know it operates properly. The majority of my guests by far are all repeat clientele and many have stayed with me for six or more years. The vast majority of my reviews are positive and as a matter fact I believe although I’m not certain that yours is the only negative review. I am not downplaying your review and again I regret your experience however we provide contact information that could have taken care of many of your issues had you called them. When I left the home in May, it left nothing to be desired. I remain with kindest regards, Keith
22 Keepers Landing, is definitely a Keeper!
Our family had a great stay at K
The decor of the house was pleasing. However the cleanliness, especially the crofter which had not been vacuumed, left a lot to be desired. The kitchen was furnished sparsely. We wish we had known there was a keurig coffeemaker. We would have brought that from home instead of spending a fortune at the market for keurig pods. When we arrived there was a broken rocking chair sitting in the driveway and a broom propped up against the garage. Not exactly a welcoming sight. If you are going to rent property, it should be in the exact condition at the end of the summer as it was in the beginning...after all, you are charging the same rates. I have owned 2 homes on Bald Head. The first we rented.
I very much regret your experience. My house manager had placed the rocking chair behind the golf cart garage... I am going to see if I can fix or replace it after the summer as it was in perfect condition during our last trip in May. I am not sure what happened in the kitchen as it was well stocked the last time we were there. Every spring we do an inventory to see what needs to be replaced or added too as far as kitchen ware. Please advise as to what you feel was missing for your rental week. We have never had a complaint that it was not stocked so I am very interested in knowing what needs to be added to enhance our renters experience and we will certainly take it under consideration. In terms of the Keurig, it is prominently pointed out in the VRBO listing.
Thank you for your review and we certainly hope that despite these issues that you enjoyed your time on BHI. Renting is certainly different than home ownership as we have been on both end of the experiences. We are pretty sure that all of our renters are aware that any issue that comes up during their stay understand that our house manager is just a phone call away and is very pleasant and accommodating to our renters needs. I am so sorry that this wasn't relayed to you as she lives on the island and is very quick in responding to any concern.
Thank you again
Great, clean property. Fully stocked kitchen, comfortable family room and luxurious beds. Just the right size for our family of four and guest. Membership to the Shoals Club was a must and very appreciated!
