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!

Wilmington rental home tips:

Find your perfect vacation home:

  • Summertime is high season in Wilmington. Book your rental in the Fall or Spring to get the benefit of gorgeous weather while saving money and avoiding crowded roads, restaurants, and activities. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a Carolina Beach vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation on the coast? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with loved ones at the beach.
  • The earlier your group can book a rental home, the easier your search will be. The best properties are booked early. Reserving your rental home six - twelve months before your vacation is recommended. Holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving are excellent times to plan and reserve your vacation home.
  • Owners sometimes offer rate reductions for active duty military and veterans. Make sure to check with your host or property manager to see if rate reductions are available for your family before you book.
  • Booking websites typically offer their guests an option to buy vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which will generally cost between 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed trip time as a result of medical-related issues or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation charges, such as an unanticipated hotel or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your host for specifics.
  • Find a copy of your local Carolina Beach area magazine upon checking in. If your rental property doesn't have one, you can find them at local grocery stores and visitor centers. In addition to great articles, travel guide magazines contain deals for local tours and attractions.

Use filters to search efficiently:

  • Choose dates and budget.
  • Determine how many bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration your family needs. Delightful Cottage on Figure 8 Island--with dock on sound, boardwalk to ocean has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
  • Specific descriptions of bedrooms and bed counts is commonly accessible online. Otherwise, email the property owner before you book your home. Remember that most listings specify maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes pull-out couches and bunk beds.
  • If there's a particular Carolina Beach destination you simply love, search for properties that are either close by, or those that cater to your needs.
  • Proper accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for persons with disabilities. Make certain to ask about wheel chair accessibility, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs.
  • Do your family pets travel with you? Although a number of vacation homes allow pets or animals, guidelines and costs vary per property. Allowable pet type, breed, and size are often limited. Ask your host before booking, and study your rental agreement! Extra fees or costs applied to your agreement.

Considerations for your stay:

  • Be sure you get the host's phone number and entry/exit procedures for your rental property. Store the host's contact information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • Record any issues with the property at check in, and immediately send them to the owner. We specifically recommend e-mails and text messages, as they usually contain time stamps that are useful if there is a dispute.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a hot tub, intercom or thermostat. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief call prevents a lot of problems.
  • Be respectful. Frequently, adjacent homes are filled by permanent residents. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking regulations is the right thing to do.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Residents can usually point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to go for the best drinks, have a great night out, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • Protect the owner (and your stuff!) by locking the rental while you are gone, just like you would at home.
  • Re-check the vacation property to make sure that you've packed everything on check-out day. Check garages, decks, and cabinets for hidden belongings. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Inspect the rental one final time and keep an eye out for any damage. We advise walking through with the host whenever possible. If the property manager is not available, take photos and video of the property to record its condition at check-out.
  • Did your family have a terrific time? Most rental websites make it easy for guests to provide comments. If your rental and/or property management company was terrific, they would love to hear it. If anything was wrong and they failed to address it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make a note as part of your review.
