Overview

About the property

You have your own parking area right in front of the apartment!

I want to explain, more in depth, the property and things you can expect. The property is located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia and is surrounded by Salt Water. We run WELL WATER at this property and there are times when it will smell a little funny, because of the minerals in the water. The water is treated and not dangerous. Well water actually does have a better taste, but when you are not use to it, it is strange. We also have BUGS/ INSECTS around this property and I ask that you bring BUG REPELLENT with you. There will be bugs found at the beach, so do not be surprised if you see them. We do treat the yard and apartment! You will see mosquitoes, flies, gnats and spiders, insects that are found everywhere you go.

This is a Private apartment with 1 bath, 1 queen bed, 1 fold out queen couch bed, stove, microwave, dishes, pots and pans. All the comforts of home! (AND THEN SOME)

Wash and Dryer, Dish Network TV, WIFI, Internet! As I have stated....YOU have your own parking space! This is the second driveway by the garage! You will see a white volkswagon in the drive in front of the garage. You want to drive straight in and this is the room where you will be staying! I can usually be found on the back deck if you should need me for anything!

You have free rein of the property and can come and go as you please. The kayaks are here for you to use, as well as the fishing poles! I do ask that you take a life jacket with you if you will be on the water. It is a safety issue and I want all of my guests to be safe.

The refrigerator in the apartment is a little small, but there is a standard refrigerator in the laundry room. This is available for you as well. The bait for fishing will be found in the freezer section of this fridge.

Yes, you can wash and dry your clothes while you are here. You also have a choice to dry the clothes in the dryer or, (my favorite) on the line and get that clean and fresh scent!

There is a key that is available to you so you can lock the door if you leave. It is a very safe place, but you may feel you need to lock the door. This is fine. Just let me know!

Grills on site to be used by you. It is a propane and charcoal grill! There is also a smoker! There have been MANY GREAT MEALS cooked on this grill and I am sure many more are coming!

There is a golf cart, that is (LEGAL TO DRIVE ON THE ROAD) available for you to use while you are here! As you have seen in many reviews, it is one of the most loved things at Thelma's Dawn! It is here for YOU! Of course there has to be a catch in operating the golf cart. You must be at least 15 years old to be permitted to drive it by yourself, UNLESS there is an adult riding with you! These are not my rules, but the rules of the community.

I like to load up the golf cart when I go fishing. I put the poles, cooler, bait, drinks and everything I will need to sit down on the beach for a long time. When I go fishing, I mean business!

The outside of the property is a 1&1/2 acre property. We have volleyball, horseshoes, CORN HOLE, (yes, I said it....CORN HOLE) and other games that you can play.....Just ask us! Remember....we are here to make your vacation as special and memory making as we possibly can!

We even have TENTS and AIR MATTRESSES that can be used in the event you have more people that want to join you on your vacation! There is a 2 person, 4 person and a 3 ROOM TENT! This thing is BIG!

Then you have to remember all of the FISHING, KAYAKING, SWIMMING, PRIVATE BEACH, BEAUTIFUL SUNSETS, BONFIRES and so much more! This is YOUR TIME!! I want you to LOVE IT HERE!

So I have been asked how I came up with the name "THELMA'S DAWN". Well, my mother passed away from cancer in 2007. Mom was 68 years old when she was called home. I had a sister, Dawn, who was called home at age 28. She was murdered in January1988. It was fitting to name this beautiful place after the two of them.

About Christi Medice

I am a retired Paramedic and Lieutenant Firefighter for the City of Hampton, VA. I live with my husband, Rick, and our two parrots, Joey and Nikko. I am an outdoors lover and love to fish. We have bon-fires often and just enjoy the evenings and the sound of the waves as they crash along the shore line while looking at the stars above us. We have a fish pond in the yard, but these fish are just for admiring. I love to get around to talk to my neighbors and make sure they are all doing ok. I try to exercise as much as I can by walking on the beach and kayaking. There is a garden in the yard that Rick and I tend to. I love to can the vegetables for the Winter.

So I have been asked how I came up with the name "THELMA'S DAWN". Well, my mother passed away from cancer in 2007. Mom was 68 years old when she was called home. I had a sister, Dawn, who was called home at age 28. She was murdered in January1988. It was fitting to name this beautiful place after the two of them.

I have lived in this home since I was born, except for the 25 years I moved to Hampton, Virginia, in 1885, to take a job as a professional firefighter and went to school to become an Emergency Rescue Diver and Nationally Registered Paramedic. I was diagnosed in 1995 with Multiple Sclerosis, but continued to work in the fire department as an instructor of various Fire, Emergency Medical, Driving, CPR and Water Safety courses. I retired from the fire department in 2006 and moved back to the Eastern Shore, which I have always called my home!

Having MS, I can not enjoy things the way I use to. I love the beach and the water, but due to MS, I cannot stay in the heat long. With this being said, I have felt that this property was being wasted, so I made the decision to renovate the attached garage into the apartment in the hopes that people could come and enjoy everything "Thelma's Dawn" offers!

I am positive that you will love it as much as I do! I look forward to meeting you soon!

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Christie for relaxing weekend. You went above and beyond to do everything you could to make it an enjoyable weekend for myself, my husband, and puppies ;) I think my puppies enjoyed it the most. They loved having the freedom to run on the beach and around the big yard without leashes.

The crab dinner was a special experience for us as well. I did feel a bit guilty though when poor Christy was out getting the crab pots fighting the winds :(

We hope to come back again in the future to enjoy some warmer days on the beach.

Thanks again for having us.

It is our favorite anniversary vacation. Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Christi and Rick go above and beyond to show their guests a good time. New beautiful chairs to sit and watch the sunset. She spoils my dog♡ and is a great listener when you need to talk. I love this place! Relaxing and fun. Kayak rides chasing dolphins and long walks on the beach. Then you get to play .... I mean drive around in your own golf cart.

Warning: you won't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

Christi and her husband are so welcoming and eager for you to enjoy your stay. Her recommendations were spot on. Everything you need to enjoy some downtime at the beach is here and then some. We left very early the last day of our stay and standing on the patio outside the apt listening to the waves made it very hard to get in the car. Special place with special people.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We only spent 2 nights at Thelma's Dawn and the first night it was raining. So we only had 1 full day there. Christi was really a great host. My son got his braces put on the same day we arrived and she had made him some choc pudding and bought him some ice cream. She went above and beyond in the hospitality department. The location is secluded, but being right on the beach was AMAZING. We didn't get to play with any of the toys on the water, but next time I would love to! My boys (11 & 8) LOVED LOVED LOVED the golf cart. They were able to drive it and I'm pretty sure they spent 95% of the vacation on that cart. But as long as they had fun, I was happy. The sunset I caught was the most beautiful thing I've seen! The pull out couch was pretty uncomfortable for an adult, but the bed was comfy. The kitchen was stocked enough for me to be able to cook our quick meals. Thanks again Christi!

Thank you for thinking of us when you made your plans for your vacation! Thank you for everything!!

Heavenly

  • 5 of 5

I had the most relaxing time. Christi and Rick made feel at home from the start. They were the most hospitable and warm couple. So many things to do for the whole family and wonderful comforts from home. I will definitely be bringing the kiddos and their granny the next time I come to visit. I can't wait to see them again. Such a sweet place with such a sweet and down to earth couple.
