My family and my sister’s family (4 adults & 4 children aged 8-17) rented Bay Muse the last week of June. We were a little skeptical at first because this home is new on the rental market and at the time did not have any reviews. We are so happy that we gave this beautiful home a chance!
We found Bay Muse to be very clean and well maintained. The kitchen is fully equipped. Our only complaint about the kitchen would be that there is not a lot of counter space. However, the kitchen is huge and we were able to use the table as a prep area as well as a buffet table for family dinners. The large dining room was big enough to accommodate all 8 of us (thanks to the kitchen chairs!)
The front porch was a pleasant surprise! This is where we ended each day; enjoying a glass (or two!) of wine and talking about the day’s activities.
Bay Muse is in a great location…walking distance to the quaint downtown area, the beach and central park. Our families spent a lot of time outside at the beach and central park. At the beach, the kids (and dads) enjoyed exploring the breakers at low tide. We gathered at Central Park for an all in game of kickball. The kids loved having the park to kick the soccer ball around and to rollerblade around its perimeter.
While at Bay Muse we took a day trip to Chincoteague to see the wild ponies. We also took a two hour kayak tour with SouthEast Expeditions and visited Chatham Vineyard (delicious wine!) Also a short drive away are The Shanty and Aqua; two Cape Charles restaurants where we enjoyed delicious meals.
Marlen was very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. Bay Muse turned out to be the perfect place for our families to unwind and reconnect; we look forward to returning again sometime.
