Gift From the Sea

2-6 Keys 4 Bedrooms 8 Guests 4 BathsView Amenities


7 Inlet Hook is a four bedroom oceanfront single-family house located on a quiet cul-de-sac on the North end of Figure Eight Island. It comfortably sleeps eight adults. A bunkroom can accommodate two additional children. You are just steps away on a private beach path from the ocean. Perfect for adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, family reunions, girl’s getaways, romantic getaways. Given the warming waters of the nearby Gulf Stream, Figure Eight Island enjoys the same climate as Hilton Head Island or Myrtle Beach and truly offers four-season enjoyment.

Figure Eight Island lies just accross the Intracoastal Waterway on the Atlantic Ocean coast of North Carolina, just outside the city of Wilmington, NC (Pop. 100,000). By car, the island is eight miles north of the Wilmington city limits on Highway 17, a coastal highway extending from Norfolk to Jacksonville. Turning off Highway 17, travelers go less than two miles on a paved two-lane road and enter the island via a causeway bridge with a 24 hour guard assuring access only to residents and registered guests. There are no commercial establishments on Figure Eight Island, but Harris Teeter grocery stores, movies, shopping, fresh produce stands and restaurants are just minutes away on Highway 17.

Gift from the Sea, indeed

Owner is very attentive. This wonderful barrier island beach home is secluded yet close to businesses of Wilmington. The home is spacious, attractively decorated and well-maintained. Situated in neighborhood of other fabulous properties on this controlled access island. The beach is among the best swimming beaches for families… a very gentle run-out. Water quality is very good. View is wonderful. Our second stay. Look forward to another.”

Week in April

The house was clean and well laid out. It had a number of nice features. Being on the gated island was a nice touch. The dunes and beach were very nice. The rooms in the house were comfortable and flexible in how they could be used. The master suite was a step above the other bedrooms and very nice. The area had a lot more restaurants than we anticipated. It is 5 miles back to US 17 but everything was there from grocery to Wal Mart to top seafood restaurant to a nationally recognized breakfast/lunch diner to gyms with weekly membership available. Scenery was top notch. The concierge type service was extremely helpful in arranging a boat outing and knowing special things about the area. Very enjoyable week. The bathrooms in the non master were somewhat dated. ”
