About Bunnie Bachman
I have lived on Figure Eight Island since 1982. Being originally from the NY/NJ area I fell in love with this 5 mile plus island paradise. No commerical business on the island. Only single family homes on half ac. lots. Close to everything but you feel miles away from all the summer tourist & hustle & bustle. It reminded me of summers I had spent as a youth in South Hampton. Quite, private but close to everything. Great Farmers Markets, wonderful fresh seafood, good restaurants,minutes away from the Historic district of Wilmington and close to the air port.

Comfortable, spacious and beautiful
Wow, I don't even know where to begin there is so much to share. Truly one of the most memorable and relaxing months I have spent in my lifetime. Every detail of the house was fantastic. From the soft comfortable sheets to the well appointed kitchen that made life and cooking so much fun. Every evening was a celebration of the sun saying goodbye . The sky told a beautiful story that had me wanting more. And the owner was extremely accommodating and was always available to see if there was anything we needed. She had fantastic recommendations For local restaurants and fun things for the kids to do. The kids were immersed in Sea life. Long walks on the beach finding all sorts of exciting and rare shells. I've never seen so many Sandollar's.
Looking forward to coming back next year to the same house same time
So Pleased that your family had such a wonderful time. We had a warm January which gave you time to walk the beach & collect sea shell. The off season months are great for shelling. Please come back & visit us.
Wonderful family vacation house
This wonderful house combines deep water access to the Waterway with a one minute walk to the ocean. The house itself is spacious and open with lots of gathering places for family and friends. It is fully equipped and very clean. Living in it is a real pleasure. It's not a soulless vacation rental, it's a family home.
The views from the back deck across the Waterway are spectacular, with magnificent sunsets. The deep water dock is perfect for fishing trips, water sports, taking a cruise on the Waterway, or exploring the wonderful marshes. Wildlife abounds. Dolphins play at sunset.
Then you can take a short walk (yes, really, one minute) to a magnificent pristine beach that stretches as far as the eye can see in each direction. Great for shelling, sand castles, surf fishing, surfing, swimming in the breakers and just walking. This is a private island so everyone has plenty of room.
Wilmington is only a few minutes drive from the peace and quiet of Figure 8 Island. It offers all kinds of entertainment, amenities and services, and excellent shopping and restaurants. Wilmington is one of the best kept secrets in the Carolina's.
At the end of our vacation everyone had the same reaction - "When can we come back again?"
Great House with fishing dock
My family and I spent a week and we found this house to be delightful with a fishing dock. All the amenities you would need are in the house. I can't say enough about this house and dealing with owners is always a pleasure. We spent all week fishing and crabbing off the dock and made a lovely low country boil. The house is beautiful, well equipped and very clean. We will be back! Thanks so much for letting us share your lovely home.
BEST FISHING SHACK EVER
My buddies and I wanted to get away for some fishing and bring the family. This house was the best of both worlds. Our 33' Tiara was docked just steps from the house and at the end of the we grilled the fresh caught Mahi while watching the sunset. Others in our group walked and played on the beach, went shopping and out to dinner at the near by restaurants.
I'm looking forward to coming back soon.
