Hello and thank you for taking the time to look at our lovely beach house, Life's A Beach in Cape Charles. This amazing, family friendly beach town has had some great press lately (including HGTV).

Relax and get inspired at “Bay Muse”. This is a beautiful, all hardwood floor, fully updated, lots of natural light and very spacious house with access just a 5 minute stroll from the historic town and beaches of Cape Charles, Virginia. The beach is just at the end of the road.

The four bedroom property is situated on a very quiet, tree lined street yet the beach and other facilities such as shops, cafes and bars are just moments away.

The living area comprises of a large, sunny and airy open plan foyer, living room leading into the dining room. "Smart TV" with endless Netflix for rainy days!

The spacious kitchen and adjoining back room features a washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, microwave, fridge with freezer, 4 hob electric stove with separate oven plus extractor fan.

There is a good sized fully tiled family bathroom.

All bedrooms have a closet as well as a chest of draws for extra storage. Bedding (linen) is included. House towels are included but please note that Beach Towels are NOT so please bring your own.

All windows have curtains and are double glazed for great heat and noise insulation. For your convenience, each room has individually controlled heat and air conditioning.

We hope you will agree that the house is tastefully decorated by taking advantage of the beautiful historic structure with the right amount of contemporary elements.


There is free parking in front of the house on an extremely quiet and historically safe road.

This is a no smoking property but there is an ash tray outside at the front of the building. We also do not accept pets at this time.

Just around the corner from the property are public tennis courts and a nicely equipped and large playground for children.

Cape Charles town center is only a brief walk away with shops, cafes and bars. There is also a world class golf course nearby and a very popular fishing and crabbing pier.

Come relax, kick back and get inspired at “Bay Muse”..!

About Marlen

We've met many people with our experience over the years. They discover Cape Charles somewhat by accident and cannot believe such an amazing, safe, family friendly town exists within reach. We have been back every year... 7 years and counting ever since.

We made the absolute commitment last year by purchasing and we look forward to sharing our slice of paradise with you..!

Marlen purchased this house in 2013

Why Marlen chose Cape Charles

The House: Best of both worlds... old world charm of a seemingly by-gone era in a freshly updated home.

Cape Charles: Best explanation I have heard other than just how charming, friendly and enjoyable this great town provides is 'you can do as little or as much as you want..'. Most importantly, the environment compels you to unwind and rejuvenate. Community is very friendly and there are minimal crowds even in peak season which means no stress.

What makes this house unique

Old world charm, low stress in an updated home. Come get inspired..!

Bay Muse has Everything You Need

  • 5 of 5

Great house in my favorite town! The owners have gone out of their way to make sure you have EVERYTHING you need. Beach chairs, bicycles, blow up rafts, fishing poles, beach cart, board games, books, flashlights (evening walks) - I could go on and on. I fell in love with the 1000 count sheets on the upstairs queen bed. (and bought some once I got home). A couple of things needed attention and the owners responded quickly and answered emails promptly. Would absolutely rent again.

Our family of six had a wonderful time during our stay. The beach was super close to the house, just a short walk. The house was full of everything we needed to have a great time, speakers for music, games and books for the kids, Netflix for us to watch movies, a grill that we used to cook out, fully stocked kitchen supplies, and more! There were even beach chairs that we could wear like bookbags to the beach. The house was clean and cozy, can't wait to go back! We highly recommend Bay Muse!

Serene getaway in a lovely town

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed a wonderful week staying at Bay Muse in Cape Charles. It's an excellent location - a short walk to the beach and to the shops and restaurants. The house is really lovely - beautiful, airy bedrooms, comfortable living spaces, a spacious eat-in kitchen and a great outside shower for rinsing off from the beach. The kitchen was very well stocked, there wasn't anything that I needed that I didn't find there. There were plenty of bath linens for us to use. There were lots of games and books available. The front porch is lovely for relaxing at the end of the day. This was our second summer vacation in Cape Charles, we love the town and especially enjoyed our stay at Bay Muse this year.

Cape Charles is a hidden gem. Once discovered, you will keep coming back. The beach is not crowded and you can do as little or as much as you want. Great for couples and especially for families.
