About this Property

  • Sleeps 10
  • 5 Bedrooms
  • 3 Bathrooms
  • Private vacation home
  • Approximately 2400 square feet

Our home is on a secluded, uncrowded private island, directly on the ocean with a white sandy beach and clear ocean water. The clean water provides superb fishing and surfing. We are ardent conservationists and have managed to preserve the natural vegetation around the home. We have tons of beach grass and sea oats. The birding around the home is marvelous and we have fall visitors who come just to bird watch. Surf fishing is very good in front of the home because of a slew that has been there for at least 30 years.

The Beach House is a comfortable, older oceanfront home. The home was constructed in 1969 by Paul and CoCo Foster on Figure 8 Island close to Wilmington North Carolina. The design is a mix of Caribbean, Central American and historic Carolina style coastal homes. Our furnishings are eclectic with many 1950's pieces copied from the famed 1952 Herman Miller catalog while the Fosters were living in Central America. Google map it: 126 Beach Road S, Wilmington,


Our home has five bedrooms and two full bathrooms. There is a warm water outside shower which is the most trendy bathing area in the summer. The kitchen is entirely equipped including a microwave and all the cookware a chef would want. We left the natural vegetation so there are plenty of sea oats and a growing maritime forest. The birds adore it!

The home is located on Figure Eight Island just north of Wilmington, North Carolina. It is a private island and a gated community, accessible only to land owners and their guests. There are no public facilities on the island. It has the only privately owned bridge over the Intercostal Waterway. We have clean and white sandy beaches with blue-green ocean water. Multiple loggerhead turtle nests hatch yearly. The beach is not busy since the public is not allowed on the island.

Our home is light and airy and very casual. This is not a luxury home, but a functional beach home. Sandy toes are not a problem! Smoking is allowed outside, but must be carefully controlled because of the high winds and fire hazards. We have had numerous homes burn down on the island due to cigarette butts left burning in the sand or on the porch.

Our top Wilmington, NC vacation rental home tips:

When to book a Wilmington, NC rental home & When to go:

  • In the Wilmington, NC area, The sooner your group can book a vacation home, the easier your search will be. The best vacation homes are reserved very early. Booking your vacation home six to twelve months before your vacation is recommended. Holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving are excellent times to search for and reserve your rental home.
  • Summer is high season in Wilmington. Reserving a rental home in Spring or Fall is a great way to save on your vacation. Rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of acceptable homes. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to reserve a beach front vacation rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during the high season.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective vacation rental company or host whether your vacationing group qualifies for a special promotion or discount.
  • Property management companies usually offer their guests an option to add vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which commonly costs between 1% - 5% of the reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed trip time as a result of personal medical-related catastrophes or weather, as well as evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel overnight or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance might be a a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for specifics.
  • Look for your local Wilmington, NC visitors guide magazine upon arrival. If your rental home doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local shops and fuel stations. In addition to great articles, visitor guide magazines have offers and deals for nearby accommodations, tours and attractions.

How to select the best vacation home:

  • Start by choosing your the best vacation week and a maximum budget.
  • Note the number bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration your group requires. Sandy Paws Cozy Beach House and direct ocean front on Figure Eight Island has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed counts & types is normally available online. Otherwise, call the property management company before you reserve your rental. Note that most properties list maximum guest capacity, which typically includes pull-out couches.
  • If your family is vacationing with pets, you'll need to find a pet-friendly vacation rental. Request specifics on breed, weight, and type requirements. Usually, hosts charge pet deposits and fees.
  • Visiting for a specific attraction? Use a map search to locate nearby rentals.
  • Proper accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for persons with a disability. .

Considerations for your stay:

  • Take a copy of the host's contact number and arrival/departure procedures for your rental home.
  • Property managers are great sources of help! Don't be shy to ask questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Lock your vacation home while you're out and about. Protect the owner's property and your stuff!
  • To make certain that damages aren't linked to your stay, note any problem areas when you arrive. Contact the host right away to relay any damages. If there is a dispute about who is responsible, having the recorded concerns and contact attempts will be valuable.
  • Respecting quiet hours and parking restrictions can make a stay more pleasurable. You will magnify your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are an excellent resource to find the best local beaches and restaurants.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Local residents can usually point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to grab the best tacos, have a great night out, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Don't leave anything behind! Before departing, walk through the property to confirm you've collected all of your things. Check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden items. Clean the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
  • Did your family have a great time? Most rental home management companies make it easy for clients to provide reviews. If your property and/or property management company was terrific, they will likely appreciate your kind words. If anything was inoperable and they failed to correct it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make it a point as part of your review.
