About Jennifer Rousseau

Originally from France and the UK, we have lived near Chapel Hill, North Carolina since 1995. We and our three children have enjoyed many visits to Bald Head Island over the years. We have owned the house since April 2012.

Jennifer Rousseau purchased this house in 2012

Why Jennifer Rousseau chose Bald Head Island

We love the beauty, peace and tranquility that Bald Head Island offers. We particularly enjoy the East Beach end of the island where our home sits. The house is a three minute golf cart ride from the Shoals Club.

What makes this house unique

The house is sheltered in a large and very private wooded lot but is just three minutes' easy walk to gorgeous East beach. House is just a couple of minutes' golf cart ride from Shoals Club. You can enjoy listening to the the surf from the screened in porches.

Our Favorite for Many Years!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been vacationing on Bald Head Island for close to 20 years. We have stayed in many locations on the island but never have we stayed in the same house twice. However, we have stayed in this house for the past 4 summers. The house is in a wonderful location with just a short walk to the beautiful East Beach. It is a very comfortable home with all of the comforts of our own home. Our favorite spot, hands down, is the lovely screened in porch! There is plenty of space for everyone ! One of the most pleasant experiences that we have encountered while renting this home are the owners. The rental process is painless and the owners are most attentive to their renters. The dynamics of our family has changed over the years but we are all happy to return to our home away from home! This home will not disappoint!

Great Location - Well Kept House

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed this wonderful home for our annual Bald Head Beach vacation. We always stay in the Cape Fear Station area and this home is perfectly located w/ good proximity to East Beach. The house was well stocked with everything we could need. We were also impressed with both how well maintained the home was kept and the home's cleanliness upon our arrival (we like things neat/clean). Jenny, the owner, is easy to work with and attentive to all the logistics. We didn't have any issues during our stay but felt confident that if there were any - Jenny was easily accessible. We liked that the landscaping around the home opened up the grounds but still maintained the privacy that we love in Cape Fear Station. The bathrooms and kitchen were modern and well maintained. Overall - a great home for a family vacation that we would be happy to rent again.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

This home is so lovely, comfortable and well-appointed. Photos on web site are very accurate and spot-on as far as decor, ammenities, atmosphere. The property was very clean upon arrival and it is obvious that it is well-cared for and valued by the owners. The owners were easy and pleasant to deal with and answered all questions immediately via email. Very soothing paint colors, lovely woodwork and not overdone with tchotchka and knick-knacks. No visual clutter. Loved the screen porches, especially off of the family room; had happy hour there every evening and the outdoor speakers were such a plus for music enjoyment. Kitchen is well stocked with plenty of utensils, pots, toaster, coffee maker. Just a hop skip and a jump from the beach which is a huge bonus. Having bikes with the house was fun for the kids to ride to the beach. Shopping is limited on B.H., but you can find some treasure here and there. Shoals club is fun if you want a change from the beach and some poolside lounging and great banana daquiris! I would highly recommend this property to a family that wants to relax in very tasteful surroundings and take advantage of plenty of beach time.

Lovely family place

  • 5 of 5

We’ve enjoyed this house for the last 4 years, beginning from when it was known as Salty Dog. The house is nestled in trees a block from the beach, secluded but you can hear the ocean from any of the 3 screened-in porches. It is well maintained and well furnished, including 4 bikes, a big gas grill, a portable crib, boogie boards and sand toys. Jenny, the owner, is attentive and quick to respond to questions. All we need bring is ourselves and food. It’s a perfect family house and our family hopes to vacation here for years to come.
