Our home has the best of both worlds on handsome Figure 8 Island! One side of the home opens directly onto the sound, with its calm water and low and high tides. The other side of the home faces the ocean, which is an simple walk on a wooden walkover. The home is right on a the sound (and access to intracoastal waterway), which is ideal for swimming, fishing, water skiing, kayaking, tubing, etc. At low tide there is a sandy beach ideal for young kids and explorers looking for fiddler crabs and minnows. The big shared dock with seating area is a great place to hang out and watch the sun set or the supervise the activity on the water. From our dock it is painless to discover by kayak or boat.
On the main floor of the home there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms (1 room with 2 twins and 1 room with queen, with bath in between on one side and the same on the other side). The kitchen, eating, and living area are all part of one great room with decks on both sides of the home. On the ground level is a sizable additional room with its own entrance. This level has 1 queen, 2 twins, and 1 trundle. There is a seating area and ping pong table/rec area. There is a half bath, as well as a separate indoor/outdoor shower.
Our home is located at the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac and is adjacent to the island-long bicycle path and the walkway to the beach. The uncrowded beach is great for long walks and shell and sand dollar collecting! The fishing includes bluefish, Spanish mackerel, and deep-sea. Boats, kayaks, bicycles, etc. can be rented from the Island Yacht Club, Wilmington, or Wrightsville.
Figure 8 Island is ideal for families or a couples, as it offers a peaceful island near the cozy towns of Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach. In both towns you can find incredible eateries, shopping, movie theaters, etc. There is a grocery store once you come onto the main road, which makes stocking the home a breeze!
