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 astounding 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 multiple homes burn down on the island due to cigarette butts left burning in the sand or on the porch.

About the Area

Tips to get the perfect vacation home experience:

Get the most from your rental budget:

  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months in Wilmington. To book the largest rental home for your budget, we strongly suggest booking in the Fall or Spring. You'll enjoy lower rates, better selection, gorgeous weather and the absence of large crowds at your favorite restaurants and activities.
  • The earlier your group can book, the better your selection will be. The most desirable vacation homes are reserved very early. Reserving your vacation rental six to twelve months before your travel dates is recommended. Holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving are excellent times to search for and reserve your rental.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective host if your group qualifies for a price reduction or discount.
  • Property management companies usually offer customers an option to obtain trip insurance. Trip insurance, which commonly costs between 1% - 5% of the base stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed trip time as a result of personal medical-related issues or weather, as well as ensuing additional evacuation charges, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for more information.
  • Find a copy of your local Wilmington, NC visitors guide upon checking in. If your rental property doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great information, visitors guide magazines contain coupons for local accommodations, restaurants and tours.

Planning and choosing a perfect Wilmington, NC vacation home:

  • Choose a designated group leader, choose your trip dates, and select a max budget.
  • Determine how many beds and what type of bedroom configuration your family needs. Sandy Paws Cozy Beach House and direct ocean front on Figure Eight Island has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
  • Specific information about bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is commonly accessible on booking websites. If you don't see them listed, reach out to the property manager before you book the home. Note that most properties list the maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes pull-out couches and bunk beds. You'll need to work out which bed configuration is right for your group.
  • Are you visiting for a specific attraction or event? If so, use a map search to find nearby rentals.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for guests with disabilities. Confirm all necessary amenities are available before booking.
  • Some rentals allow pets, and others don't. Acceptable types of dog or cat, size and breeds may be restricted, and added costs may apply. Ask the property management company about your furry family members before booking.

Have a fantastic stay:

  • Store the owner's information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • During arrival, record any issues with the rental property and immediately contact the property manager. Keep records of all correspondence in case a dispute arises.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a garage door opener, A/V setup or kitchen appliance. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief text message can prevent lots of difficulties.
  • Don't forget to respect your neighbors. Often times, nearby homes are filled by permanent residents. Respecting noise limits and parking policies is the right thing to do.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Residents can typically help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to find the best seashells, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for fishing?
  • Lock your rental home while you are away. Protect the owner's property and your things!
  • Double-check every room of the rental property to confirm that you've packed all personal items at departure. Check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden items. Clean the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Go through the property a final time and keep an eye out for damage. We advise walking through with the host whenever possible. If the manager isn't available, remember to take photographs of the rental to record its condition.
  • Did your group have a terrific vacation? Many rental managers make it easy for clients to provide feedback. If your rental property and/or host was wonderful, they would love to hear it. If anything was out of order and they failed to correct it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make it a point as part of your comments.
