The house was great! A few older home issues (disclosed in the welcome book)- but perfect space for family of 6. Furnishings in bedrooms were great- nice, comfy. Layout of bathroom/laundry/ dishwasher room (all in 1 room off the kitchen) on 1st floor was a little awkward, but we made it work.
This house is a (very) short walk to the beach- and has great views of the bay in 2 (or 3?) of the bedrooms upstairs. Really great, convenient location.
There is only one door in/out of house. We did discover on day 2 that there is an apartment on the second floor of the house above where the kitchen/laundry/bath are located on 1st floor. The apartment has a separate entrance in back of the house. Tenant was friendly. We noticed the apartment from the outside - and realized the room with double twin beds has a locked door connecting to apartment. You can occasionally hear tenant and a few times we could smell cigarette smoke in the room with double twin beds. The apartment was a surprise to us (and not disclosed anywhere that we could find). It also seems odd to make the house pet/smoke free - when an apartment in the house has a pet and a smoker.
Surprise apartment aside, it was a really great house and met our needs. Charming, great value, close to the nearly empty beach, well-stocked with towels, kitchen items. Cape Charles is a lovely town!
