About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Strict MAXIMUM-8)

Our family instantly fell in love with Bald Head Island and we believe yours will too! You will arrive via short and fun ferry ride departing from the quaint town of Southport, North Carolina, to the unique island setting where the only wheels allowed are golf carts, bikes, and scooters. Here you will say 'good-bye' to the stress of everyday life and 'hello' to much more than a beach vacation. Contact Sherry @ #704-621-0796.

Our beach house named 'Pleasant Boundaries' (from Psalm 16) and is located in the highly desired Killegray Ridge section of the preferred South Beach area. Large dunes offer natural beauty, rolling topography, and panoramic Atlantic Ocean views from our main living areas, screened porch, and viewing deck. If you love a tremendous OCEANVIEW for SUNSETS... Our Beach House is it!

Classic Cape Cod styling to the homes along with white picket fences in Kilegray provide an upscale yet warm atmosphere. The Outside Hot and Cold private shower make it great to rinse the kids and toys after a long day on the beach. In the garage you will find two Golf Carts for adult use. The house is also located in a quiet, cul-de-sac location.

Enjoy the swing or a rocker from the screen enclosed porch with beautiful view or hang out on the viewing deck and watch the sunset. 'Pleasant Boundaries' is beautifully decorated and is perfect for a large family or two small families. There are 3 bedrooms in the main house & 1 in the Crofter. Our guest cottage or 'crofter' is a great retreat for the in-laws or 2nd master, complete with it's own mini-fridge, coffee maker & microwave.

Inside the main house there is a view from several rooms. Stand at the kitchen sink and watch the ships go by. (If I could stay here all summer, I would.) The living, dining, and kitchen are all open to each other with high ceilings and hardwood floors providing large open space to gather the family for meals or play a game.

The bedrooms are spacious, softly decorated, and have VERY comfy bedding. Lots of windows to leave open and listen to the ocean as you drift off at night. The 'Craftsman' finishing on the outside of the house continues on the inside as well, with bead-board wall and extensive trimwork.

The house is equipped with everything you should need for a complete vacation. Fully-equipped kitchen, (including many small appliances like coffee grinder, etc.) beach towels, beach chairs (6), beach toys, boogie boards,DVD library, all linens and towels, games, etc. You will probably only need to pack your clothing and rollerblades or scooters as a great market style store is just a short cart ride away.

Your vacation with us also includes privileges at the BALD HEAD Island Club, which offer oceanside swimming pool, tennis, 18 hole CHAMPIONSHIP George Cobb designed golf course (fee required), access to great dining and a wonderful place for quick poolside meals called The Pelicatessan. The Shoals Club can be added for an additional charge.

About Sherry Roese

We are the Roese Family. We live in North Carolina & have always loved the beach.

We wanted a permanent place to come to that was safe for the kids to be kids and where we would want to come again & again. We are an active family, love being outside & enjoy the nature experienced on BHI. We are always sad when it is time to leave "Pleasant Boundaries"!

Sherry Roese purchased this house in 2003

Why Sherry Roese chose Bald Head Island

We chose Bald Head Island because there is no other place like it!! Once you hop on that ferry you leave life behind and enter a world where the beauty of creation and relationships become the focus. It's mid-island, quaint location make it central to everything on the island and give it a special "New England" feel.

What makes this house unique

'Pleasant Boundaries' has incredible views...breathtaking actually! Sitting on the upper porch at sunset is beyond words. We are located mid-island so everything is just a few minutes away. Our closest boardwalk it about a 2 minute walk from the door. Bramble Reach is a quiet cul-de-sac & is a great place for the kids to roller skate or ride scooters. We also take great care in keeping the house fresh, updated and towels & bedding regularly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our trip to BHI was outstanding and your home was perfect for our family of 6. The island is a favorite for the 2 grandkids – 11 &13 – so this was our second time back.

Your home met every one of our expectations (and then some). Upon arrival there was nothing out of place, and very clean. Kudos to you and / or the cleaning service who maintains your property J.

As a former beach rental property owner, I really appreciate the extra care and the attention detail. It is obvious, this is a special place for you and your family.

Walking into a well-maintained, well-appointed property sets the tone to a much anticipated vacation. Your “brochure” did not disappoint J When you said “don’t bring anything” – you really meant it! Thank you.

From the well-stocked kitchen to the Mobley boogies boards, there was nothing one could ask for. You set the bar and we would be hard pressed to find a better property.

The new golf carts were a plus and the bikes were in better shape than you let on. We used them every day.

Great House, Great vacation, Great People to deal with !

  • 5 of 5

Our first BHI vacation. We are a family of 6, children ages 9,10, 14, 16. We were in BHI for two weeks. House was neat and clean, and the owners were very helpful in communicating what to bring and what to leave at home to aid in making our trip as easy and hassle free as possible. The owners were extremely helpful with Ferry Reservations and transportation related arrangements, which was extremely helpful and appreciated. We will be back, and would not think twice about re-renting again. Thanks for a great trip !

Lovely Pleasant Boundaries

  • 5 of 5

Perhaps the best view on the island! Located on a cul de sac with plenty of play space for kids to ride their scooters and feel safe. Fully stocked for bed and bath needs and towels for the beach! Great golf carts and bikes. We hope to return!

Exceptional Home

  • 5 of 5

Pleasant Boundaries is an incredible home! My family has stayed in 2 other homes on the island but I was always disappointed in multiple things about each home. Either the house wasn't very clean or the beds were not the greatest. Upon walking into PB for the first time I was so excited to find an extremely clean home. The housekeepers did a wonderful job. I also was very satisfied with the bedding. The mattresses are very comfortable as well as the bedding. One of the things I loved was the new golf carts. Each year my husband has always run into a problem with a golf cart not working......not this year. Both carts were charged and ready to go. They definitely had some pep. One of the features of the home I loved most was the porches. My favorite time of day was in the morning before all others were awake. I would take my coffee and Kindle and go out on the top deck and read/listen to the ocean. What a way to start each day.

Meticulously maintained home, walk to beach, amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves this home! The owners keep it immaculate and comfortable. They have thought of everything: beds and linens are superior; plenty of videos, games, puzzles for a rainy day; a well-stocked kitchen; a book with tons of information about the island; high chair & port-a-crib; 2 golf carts. Our favorite features of this house are the porches! There is one that looks out toward south beach; it's a peaceful place to have your morning coffee while watching ships and dolphins go by, an afternoon spot for soaking in the sun, and then an incredible perch for watching the sunset and for evening star-gazing. There is a screened porch downstairs to retreat quietly with a book. All this with just a quick 2-3 minute walk to south beach!! The location is perfect. Stores are a quick ride away (by bike even), Turtle Central is close, and it is right between Shoals and BHI club. We have stayed in 5 different homes on BHI, and Pleasant Boundaries is by far our favorite!

Pleasant Boundaries was like a piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been going to Bald Head Island for years with friends of ours, and we decided to move to a different house this year. We couldn't have been happier! We had space but also had togetherness and really loved our experience - just a short walk to the beach with beautiful views. They had everything in the house and made it so easy for us to vacation. We are hoping to go back next year!

Fantastic Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a fabulous vacation rental. It was very well stocked, clean, and nicely maintained. The owner was kind, helpful, and available for all of our questions. As a parent of a young child, I found everything I needed in their beautiful home. We had a great vacation at Pleasant Boundaries and will definitely return!

Nearest Airport
35 Miles

We love our location as it is CENTRALLY LOCATED on the island! 2 minute walk to our boardwalk on South Beach or a 5 minute ride in the cart to East Beach.

You might even catch a glimpse of the deer as they peek out from the Maritime Forest right behind us.
