yellow cottage review

  • 4 of 5

This home was very clean. My husband and I and my daughter and her two children stayed here. We all were impressed by what was provided in the home, esp the 5 beach chairs and beach towels, also beach toys. Owner is very organized and responsive. Beds are very comfortable with very nice sheets. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is because there were no blinds on the bedroom windows, only very sheer curtains that allowed too much sun to beat in during the day making the bedrooms very warm. Loved the back screened in porch and great breeze.

A cute comfortable oasis!

  • 5 of 5

We chose to rent as oppose to getting a hotel room so that we could have more space to relax and have use of a kitchen during our weekend stay. We're so glad we picked Victoria's cottage because it's clean, cute, and quite comfortable. The screened in porch is roomy and great for evenings. There are some parts of the home that have lower ceilings that tall guests should keep in mind. It's "up the neck" as they say so it's not on the main drag which is nice as it's quiet. It's a probably less than five minute drive to where the food and shopping is and about fifteen to Assateague's beach. Additionally, Victoria is communicative, polite, and honest about her description of her rental. She should be very proud! Have fun here at your next vacation for sure.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, comfortable and private. Especially enjoyed spending many hours on the screened in porch admiring the scenery and sitting on the bench facing the marsh. So relaxing! The kitchen had everything we needed and having use of the washer and dryer was wonderful. Victoria was easy to communicate with and we had all the privacy we wanted. Lovely home and property.

Wonderful holiday property

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a more perfect property to enjoy our first visit to Chincoteague Island. A couple travelling with our dog, this charming, character-filled cottage was extremely comfortable, had all needed amenities and was spotlessly clean. The screened in porch was the perfect place to relax at the end of each day. Comunication with the owner was also excellent. Truly a lovely, peaceful place and we hope to return soon!
