Description from owner
Sands Island is a private, 32-acre island, surrounded by thousands of acres of undeveloped marshes, island beaches and meandering natural water trails. A two-bedroom cottage is the lone structure on the island. Although only ten minutes by boat from historic Swansboro, North Carolina, this quiet, peaceful refuge seems a world away.
The cottage was built in 1997 using old-fashioned craftsmanship with locally milled pine floors, walls and ceiling and cedar shakes on the roof. It is comfortably furnished and environmentally friendly with solar-powered electricity and a gas-powered generator for back-up. The water heater, stove and refrigerator run on gas. The cottage has two private bedrooms, two bathrooms ( one inside, one accessible from outside), a complete kitchen with dining area, a living room with a wood-burning stove, and a screened-in porch where you can enjoy the cool breezes coming off the ocean. It can comfortably accommodate a family of four to six or two couples.
Your rental includes a motorboat, kayaks and canoes for your personal use, as well as parking and dockage on the mainland. You can tour the local waters, visit nearby Hammocks Beach for swimming and surfing, or visit the beaches of Emerald Isle.
As part of your unique experience and at your request, a local captain will take you on a brief boat tour of the surrounding waters and nearby Swansboro waterfront so you can visit those places later in your own boat provided with your rental.

We went to the island for our honeymoon and brought our two dogs. It was awesome! Lots of privacy and places to explore. Morning boat rides were amazing and our dogs had a great adventure. We would definitely recommend this place to nature lovers. Don't forget the bug repellent though!
