Escape to the unspoiled beaches of Figure Eight Island and enjoy the panoramic views from the Tree House.

You'll be on the highest spot on the island so nothing will obstruct the breath taking 360 degree view of the crystal clear blue ocean, white sandy beaches, intra-coastal waterway or the beautiful sound filled with wildlife. You can enjoy fishing off the private dock which located behind the cottage.

Easy living is what figure 8 is all about.There are only single family homes on Figure 8 and nothing commercial. It is only 3 miles to shopping & restaurants. This way you have the island to yourself, no crowds, no noise except the waves lapping the beach or a bird singing.

Swiss family Robinson style

  • 5 of 5

OMG! What an experience. Talk about the best of both worlds, ocean views for days and the marsh and sound at my back door. I could not have asked for anything more. My kids felt like they truly living in a tree house yet with all the upscale amenities of a fine resort.

Each room was spectacular with plush beds and fine linens. The upstairs living and kitchen with a contemporary chicks feel made everyone come together as a family to relax and unwind at the end of a long beach day.

The kids were able to crab and fish right off the back dock and also launch a kayak to explore the vast marsh behind the home. We were a hop skip and a jump from the beach path right across the street which made life very easy with the little ones. My only regret is that I could only stay One week . I know they say figure 8 is home to the stars but I truly feel it is just one of the most magical island getaways within reach on the East Coast

Many thanks to our host who was extremely attentive and always offering suggestions in regards to shopping, dining and local vibes

Beautiful House perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time staying here this time we stayed for a week and cannot wait to come back again. We stayed in the house last May for a week and had a terrific time. This house had everything you could need. Nice and roomy and very well appointed. Drop your kayak off the dock out the back, cruise thru the marsh course and see the great wild life on the island. Figure Eight Island is a first class place and this particular house falls right into the first class rating. Great location beautiful setting and fantastic accommodation. That's why I'm looking to book again!!!!

After a long cold winter this getaway was perfect for the girls. The open floor plan made it perfect for entertaining and just hanging with the girls. The sunsets were AWESOME!!!

My wife and I booked the Tree House over the Christmas holiday for a family reunion/vacation.

We had family come from as far away as Dubai. Everyone was totally enchanted with Figure Eight Island and especially the Tree House.

Highly Recommended!!

WOW! What a view

  • 5 of 5

If you want a get away where you never have to drive this is it. THe top level has vast water views of the ocean and the ICW and is open so the cooks can entertain from the kitchen area. We came for a week, brought most of our supplies and only had to leave the island once to replenish the food. One day we kayak through the marsh. Another day we biked around the island and spent the afternoon on the beach. I highly reccomend this home if you need to get away from the chaos of every day life.

Beautiful views BUT

  • 3 of 5

The Treehouse had spectacular views of both the marsh and ocean, was convenient to our venue at the Figure 8 Island Yacht Club, and had easy access to the beach across the street. There was ample space for four couples, albeit in twin beds in two rooms, but the fifth couple did have to share a bathroom. The house was generally clean but needed some repairs and much cleaning out of the owner's stuff. Bikes & lawn chairs left to borrow were either broken or so rusted that no one used them. The dishwasher needs replacing along with the television in the great room. The price was less expensive than some other options and we were allowed a daily rate, which is hard to find.

Owner's Response: As owners we like reviews. All of the items that were mentioned have been replaced. There are new beach chairs & all bikes are in good working condition. As for the owners items I think the guest was referring to condiments & spices that are left. We do leave some items just in case you forgot them. We always tell family's to feel free to throw away any items they wish to. Bunnie Bachman
