Exclusive Private Island! Figure Eight Island is one of North Carolina's best kept secrets. This private island located on the Atlantic Ocean remains untouched by modern commercialization. A Gate House and a swing drawbridge limited access to assure a private and peaceful vacation. Visitors have access to the beach, boat ramps, bikes, and tennis courts. This is a great place for golf, fishing, kayaking, and other outdoor activities. Historic Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach are located just up the street where the arts flourish and the night life has some pizzazz. There are local museums showcasing the history of the coast. Restaurants offer cuisine known and appreciated world wide. Experience the beauty, tranquility and laid back atmosphere which will create memories of your vacation paradise.

Figure 8 Island is a beautiful coastal community, but visitors from Washington DC, Philadelphia, and New York are excited to find out that it can be reached in the same amount of travel time as the popular Outer Banks region and Figure 8 doesn't have the in season crowds. The climate is considerably warmer in the spring, fall, and winter, providing a better environment for year-round golf, tennis, and other popular outdoor activities with fewer crowds.

Magical month

  • 5 of 5

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

Owner's Response: 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. Warm Regards, Agnes

Wonderful family vacation house

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Carolina Beach


  • 5 of 5

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.
