About this Property

  • Sleeps 9
  • 4 Bedrooms
  • 3 Bathrooms
  • Private vacation home

Located on a secluded salt marsh tidal creek that leads to the close by Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean via kayak or canoe, Eagle Point on the Bay offers the privacy, beauty, and nature of a rural location, yet is close to urban, coastal, and academic amenities. Near the neighborhoods of Porters Neck and Figure Eight Island, the home is 3 miles to major grocery stores, coffee stores, eateries, shopping, and a seafood market. Stunning beaches at the coastal community of Wrightsville Beach are only 15 mins. where there is also a branch of the New Hanover County Public Library, a health food store, and kayak/paddleboard/watersport units. The colonial city of Wilmington and its historic district and riverfront park is only 14 miles. Other area attractions include Airlie Gardens, the North Carolina Aquarium, the Boardwalk at Carolina Beach, historic Fort Fisher, and the Battleship North Carolina. There are many golf courses in the area.
Most of the neighbors are permanent residents. Bald Eagle Lane dead ends with only a handful of homes beyond ours, and so there is very little traffic, certainly no through traffic, making it ideal for bicycling and walking. From our front porch and street view between the single row of waterfront homes to the Intercoastal Waterway and the vast salt marsh across which sits the oceanfront private barrier island of Figure Eight Island (gated community). The view from the back of the home is across the tidal creek to the other shore lined with century old live oaks and the private, exclusive golf course Eagle Point adding to the green and natural vistas.
Savor birdwatching for osprey, herons (great grey, white, green), pelicans, kingfishers, cardinals, and maybe catch a glimpse of the shy, brightly-colored painted bunting. From our private pier and dock we appreciate, fishing, crabbing, kayaking, and watching the sunset and tidal shifts. With the daily changing tide, every 24 hours the creek water level swings through a spectacular spectacular high tide, at times nearly to pier level, through a "dead" low tide exposing areas of the creek bottom and its breeding ground for schools of leaping minnows and crabs. A channel running in front of the pier accepts for kayak launch most of the time to access the bay and beyond to the Intercoastal Waterway and salt marsh explorations. We have three sit-on-top kayaks available for your use: a two-person kayak; a one-person kayak; and a one-person fishing kayak. Walking or swimming in the creek is not allowed due to sharp oyster shells and unstable mud creek bottom. For information about tide rise and fall (water depth) consult local tide charts. The creek may not be navigable at the lowest tide.
The home has two bedrooms and full bath on the ground level, two bedrooms and full bath on the second level, and additional half-bath on ground level. Two of the bedrooms have a TV, and the TVs with their Roku boxes can be moved to a different bedroom as needed. Two of the common areas have a T.V.. The light and airy sunroom is lined with sizable windows overlooking the salt marsh and tidal creek. Also on the ground level is a private den, family room, kitchen with connected dining area overlooking the salt marsh creek. Surrounding the home are native plants including live oak tree, cherry blossom, and dogwood trees providing ample shade, as well as azalea and holly berry shrubs, palmetto trees, and lawn areas. Detached from the home is a wooden shaded gazebo with a porch swing with a view of the waterfront, a delightful spot during summer rain showers. Other outside spaces include a enormous deck off the sunroom, a modest deck off the kitchen/dining with a close by rope hammock, and a modest front porch.
In addition to all the basic furnishings, equipment, and supplies, please feel complimentary to use any of our books, cards, games, puzzles, yoga mat, bicycles (4) and two kayaks. Lifejackets are located in the garage and must be worn at all times when using the kayak. Kids must be accompanied by adults on the kayaks. Parties and events are not allowed.

Tricks and tips to get the best rental home experience:

Get the most from your vacation rental budget:

  • Book your rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules often become available 12 months in advance (or in September just after the Summer season ends). Many families reserve their Summer vacations during Christmas and Thanksgiving get-togethers. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Summertime is the most expensive season in Wilmington. To get the largest vacation home within budget, we highly recommend reserving in the Fall or Spring. You'll benefit from lower rates, better selection, beautiful weather and the absence of large crowds at restaurants, beaches, and activities.
  • Some hosts and property managers offer rate reductions for veterans and active duty military. Remember to ask your host or property manager if discounts are available for your family.
  • Booking websites often offer their guests an option to buy vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which usually costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed vacation time as a result of medical-related issues or weather, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation charges, such as an unanticipated hotel or extra gas expenses. Trip insurance can be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for details.
  • Look for your local Wilmington, NC area magazine when you check-in. If your rental property doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local shops and fuel stations. In addition to great local stories, visitors guide magazines have deals for nearby accommodations, restaurants and tours.

How to choose the perfect rental home in Wilmington:

  • Begin by selecting your the best vacation week and a spending budget.
  • Decide how many beds and what type of bedroom configuration your family requires. Waterfront house. Pier, kayak, fishing, privacy, nature. Near beaches, boating. has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our search.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed counts & types is commonly available online. If you don't see them listed, contact the host before you reserve the vacation property. Note that most property listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds and bunks. You will need to establish what is suitable for your group.
  • If your family is traveling with pets, you'll need to find a property that allows animals. Ask for specifics on breed, weight, and type restrictions. Be aware that some property owners charge additional pet fees.
  • Are you looking for special amenities? Most rental websites include search filters for amenities. Use these filters to your advantage to find the perfect rental home.
  • Appropriate accessibility can make or break a vacation for guests with disabilities. Confirm all necessary amenities are included before reserving a rental.

Advice for a fantastic stay:

  • Store the manager's information in your smartphone.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a hot tub, A/V setup or appliance. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief text message prevents many problems.
  • Ensure you protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by locking the property when you are gone, just like you would back home.
  • Record any issues with the rental during check in, and immediately send them to the host. We specifically recommend texts and e-mails, as they usually contain time stamps that are valuable if a dispute arises.
  • Be respectful of your neighbors. Often times, surrounding homes are occupied by permanent residents. Respecting quiet hours and parking rules can make a stay significantly more pleasurable.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Neighbors can often 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?
  • Just prior to departing, take a final walk-through to make sure you didn't leave anything behind. Remember to check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden items. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Remember to leave feedback! Hosts rely on excellent reviews to compel new reservations. They'll be grateful for your review. Alternatively, if something wasn't right, other families will will be grateful for your experience find their best vacation rental. Please be fair with your feedback If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the property manager had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded expeditiously to solve it.
