Guestbook comments from the owner

A Marvelous Visit

We have really enjoyed vacations spent in Cape Charles, VA. The house is clean,

spacious, well equipped and well air conditioned. The beach which is very close

to the house is clean and shallow, it is perfect for young children. The area

is quiet and the neighborhood favorable. We recommend this destination

especially for young families.

average rating of 4.7 based on 31 reviews

Great bayside location in small town, nice rooms, great to relax, character.

  • 4 of 5

Went to Cape Charles to experience hurricane Matthew from close up. Beautiful house with nice front porch. 3 bedrooms with ing and queen, 4th bedroom with 2 twins. Nicely furnished, lots of character, only the bathrooms (1 full bath upstairs, one shower downstairs behind the kitchen) could need an update. All in all a wonderful house and a great location to relax. Exactly as described in the ad, clean, absolutely no issues.Howard was quick in answering emails, everything was straightforward. Really close to the large bayside beach. Walk to the pub, bistro and shops on the main street in Cape Charles. Fishing pier, marina and golf all right there. And that old house weathered the hurricane no problem. We'd love to come back.

Too Blessed for Words

  • 5 of 5

My husband, and my brother and I recently spent time in the most wonderful home in Cape Charles. Not only was the view wonderful and all of 400 ft. to the beach but I saw the most spectacular sunset of my life. The home is well stocked with all the basics you will need and then some. If you are so inclined to cook you have all the amenities you will need. I enjoyed going back in time with a great old house that reminded me of my childhood as I grew up in a Craftsman style home in CA. The neighborhood was great and the town was so friendly. We will go back to this incredible home on our next time on the Eastern Shore. The owners were so accommodating with all our extra questions and needs and was very friendly. We were blessed beyond measure.

I was with 6 girlfriends for a getaway! We loved the house, the view, and the hospitality of our hosts. Highly recommend the "Paddle your Glass Off" kayak tour to Chatham Vineyards! Kelly's Gingernut Pub a great place to eat.

Friendly and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect spot, very close to the beach. The house is big enough for everyone to spread out. AC worked well. If you are looking for a quiet spot to get away, this is a perfect place. The bay water is warm and shallow, safe for small children. There is not much to do otherwise.

Cons: the pillows had no pillow protectors, there were yellow and brown drool spots on them which is pretty gross. Also the white towels could use some good bleach soak, very discolored with brown spots.

May come back next year, but will have to bring own towels and pillows.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your input. We replace the linens at the beginning of each season and during the season as necessary. I will talk to the cleaning crew to see what can be done to prevent similar situations in the future.

Very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

House was great. Had everything we needed. Loved sitting on the front porch watching the sunset every night. Replace the fridge would be our only thing to make it better.

Very pleasant and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Your house was neat and well kept. It suited the whole family. The kitchen/bath layout downstairs was a little odd, but very workable.

I would add a second television (generational differences) and some Wi-Fi.

It is very convenient to the town beach and fishing pier. And far enough from Brown Dog Creamery to walk off the ice cream!
