Our home is on a secluded, uncrowded private island, directly on the ocean with a white sandy beach and clear ocean water. The clean water provides superb fishing and surfing. We are ardent conservationists and have managed to preserve the natural vegetation around the home. We have tons of beach grass and sea oats. The birding around the home is phenomenal and we have fall visitors who come just to bird watch. Surf fishing is very good in front of the home because of a slew that has been there for at least 30 years.

The Beach House is a comfortable, older oceanfront home. The home was constructed in 1969 by Paul and CoCo Foster on Figure 8 Island close to Wilmington North Carolina. The design is a mix of Caribbean, Central American and historic Carolina style coastal homes. Our furnishings are eclectic with many 1950's pieces copied from the famed 1952 Herman Miller catalog while the Fosters were living in Central America. Google map it: 126 Beach Road S, Wilmington,


Our home has five bedrooms and two full bathrooms. There is a warm water outside shower which is the most fashionable bathing area in the summer. The kitchen is entirely equipped including a microwave and all the cookware a chef would want. We left the natural vegetation so there are plenty of sea oats and a growing maritime forest. The birds adore it!

The home is located on Figure Eight Island just north of Wilmington, North Carolina. It is a private island and a gated community, accessible only to land owners and their guests. There are no public facilities on the island. It has the only privately owned bridge over the Intercostal Waterway. We have clean and white sandy beaches with blue-green ocean water. Multiple loggerhead turtle nests hatch yearly. The beach is not busy since the public is not allowed on the island.

Our home is light and airy and very casual. This is not a luxury home, but a functional beach home. Sandy toes are not a problem! Smoking is allowed outside, but must be carefully controlled because of the high winds and fire hazards. We have had multiple homes burn down on the island due to cigarette butts left burning in the sand or on the porch.

Finding the best vacation home experience:

Sticking to a spending budget:

  • Summertime is high season in Wilmington. To find the best value, consider changing your trip dates to the Spring or Fall shoulder seasons. May, September, and October offer warm temperatures, less crowded beaches, and greatly reduced traffic.
  • In the Carolina Beach area, The sooner you can book a rental home, the easier your search will be. The best rental homes are booked very early. Booking your vacation property up to 12 months before your vacation is recommended. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years Eve are excellent times to search for and reserve your rental.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property management company or host whether your vacationing group qualifies for a reduced rate.
  • Property managers typically offer customers an option to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance, which will generally cost anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed days as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance might be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for additional information.
  • Many rental management companies and vacation rental houses supply Carolina Beach area visitor guide magazines which will include coupons, either offered directly by local companies, or by way of a partnership between the management company and the business itself. You can also find Carolina Beach visitors guide magazine and coupon books at local gas stations and shopping centers.

How to choose the perfect vacation rental in Wilmington:

  • Select a group leader, select your dates, and choose a maximum budget.
  • Determine how many bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration your group needs. Sandy Paws Cozy Beach House and direct ocean front on Figure Eight Island has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
  • Specific information regarding bedrooms and bed counts & types is generally available on booking pages. If not, reach out to the property management company before booking the vacation home. Note that most properties list the max. guest capacity, which typically includes pull-out couches.
  • If there's a specific Carolina Beach beach you love, browse rentals that are either nearby, or those that cater to your needs.
  • Proper accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for persons with disabilities. Make certain to inquire about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.
  • Some properties allow pets, and others do not. Acceptable types of pet, weight and breeds may be restricted, and added charges may apply. Ask the host about your furry family members before booking.

Advice for a fantastic stay:

  • Take a copy of the property manager's phone number and entry/exit procedures for your .
  • Upon check-in, record any issues with the property and immediately contact the host. Keep records of all coorespondence.
  • Property managers are available to help! Don't be shy to ask questions during your stay.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like disrespectful vacationers bothering your peace. Employ the golden rule for best judgement. If they like you, locals might even recommend great beaches and places you would have never otherwise known about!
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Residents can often help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to find the best seashells, have a great night out, or the best spots for fishing?
  • Keep the property locked while you're away! Don't let thieves spoil your holiday.
  • Re-check the property to make sure that you've packed all personal items at departure. Make sure to check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden items. Clean the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Inspect the property one final time and look for damages to contents or the property itself. We advise walking through with the property manager whenever you can. If the property manager is not available, remember to take photos and video of the rental to record its condition.
  • Did your group have a terrific vacation? Most rental websites make it easy for clients to provide reviews. If your property and/or property management company was fantastic, they would love to hear about it. If anything was amiss and they failed to correct it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make it a point as part of your comments.
