About Dan Head

We grew up in the Washington, DC area and have been coming to the Chesapeake Bay since we were kids.

Dan Head purchased this house in 2005

Why Dan Head chose Port Republic

Easy drive from Washington, DC. We have been coming here with my family since I was a little kid and we were happy to share that happy experience with our children. Love the private neighborhood and quiet beach. The bayfront view from the cliff is amazing - the pictures don't do it justice!

A great place for a vacation

  • 5 of 5
The house suited us very well and we enjoyed the beach, pool, and sights.
It is a clean house with a new kitchen, very well suplied. It was marvellous to be in the porch (and everywhere except bathrooms) and be always looking at the water.Even the only rainy day of our stay was pleasant, watching the wind swept Bay while reading and playing and trying to guess when the lone sailing dingy bravely fighting the waves and wind was going to send its sailor outboard.
The SCA location is very quiet and safe, the owner/s are pleasant and helpful and the property description accurate.
All in all a great place to be. We wished we could have stayed longer.

Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family had a wonderful time visiting the Chesapeake Bay at this wonderful home. Everything was as described and Dan was very easy to work with. It is true that the pictures do not do the view justice. It is very peaceful and the scenery is spectacular. You have reasonably close access to the beach and the water was great compared to the ocean for my kids to play in as the waves were minimal and there wasn't any undertow. If you are looking for a great place to go to get away from the hustle of today's world this is a great option and I would highly recommend it.

Absolutely lovely!

  • 5 of 5
I had my expectations in check, having been burned a few times when picking a house for the family vacation on line but this time, everything was right on the money! Starting with the view--which was stunning! and continuing through Dan, the owner, who provided thoughtful help and details about the area--there was nothing to dislike about this rental. We had a group of older adults, who wanted to see DC attractions, check out Civil War battlefields, and go out on the water &/or hang out watching the Cheasapeake---and we did it all. We could be in DC in 40 minutes, and even made the run to Gettysburg (2.5 hours). There were lovely places in eat in Solomon's Island (30 minutes). We sat on the hill overlooking the Bay several evenings--so restful. House was plenty big for us, clean and well-stocked. We were there early in the season but this was one of the QUIETEST places I have ever stayed in. I should mention that the cell phone service /Wi-Fi was a little spotty--it worked most of the times but would sometimes just fade away. Always came back, though. Thanks, Dan, for your suggestions and your flexibility!! It was a lovely week.

Natural beauty and a friendly community

  • 4 of 5
Our family of 5 had a great time in this cottage (actually, a comfortable and perfectly clean house). The view on the Bay is nothing less than spectacular. Many kinds of birds fly by right over the clif behind the house, including eagles!The one mile-long beach (great for walking and beachcombing) is a very short walk away. The community has a swimming pool and a tennis court.There is even a small museum to help identify fossils that may be found on the beach. Many restaurants and stores can be found at Prince Frederick, a ten minute drive. We did a interesting day-trip to Annapolis (a 45 minute drive). I would strongly recommend this property to anyone seeking a quiet and restful vacation in a friendly environment.
