The house was spotlessly clean. Everything was there that we needed and Barbara was effecient and easy to deal with. We recieved our deposit in a timely manner a few days after we got home. We hope to return there again next year!

GREAT FAMILY VACATION

  • 4 of 5
The house is well appointed and immaculately clean. Not a typical rental at all. You are definitely in a home. VERY QUiET neighborhood. Owner (Barbara) was great and very accommodating to our special needs. The deposit was mailed back to us almost before we got home!

Appliances are all up to date, new gas grill, and bikes and crab pots. Just a few minutes to the public beach at Cape Charles (warm water and very safe for kids). Fishing is not great off the dock at the house (at least in summer), water is very shallow and not suitable for swimming. But the crabbing was good and the kids did have fun canoeing.

We had a very refreshing time. Highly recommend.

FISHING WEEK SEPTEMBER 2012

  • 5 of 5
One of the only homes with a dock and enough water to get to the Chesapeake (Google Satellite helped). Just stay to the port side coming in at low tide. The outdoor built-in grill was a great plus as well as the separate stairway bedroom for the snoring prone. Quiet is an understatement. Crabs, some shrimp and baitfish can be had at the dock with cast nets or trap. The guy on the highway with the truck and canopy on the northbound side has fresh clams, shrimp and scallops. Stopping there is a must. Dine in, I would recommend the Clam Shack. They also have frozen seafood products. There is a Food Lion to the south and a larger one further north.
The house does not look like a typical rental. Very nice interior and exterior. We are going back this year.
The owner advised me that there are some new TVs, a new bar-be-que and the back yard was opened up by some treeing. I am looking forward to the return.

GREAT RELAXING VACATION

  • 4 of 5
Home and location was fantastic! We rented the home with friends, 2 families, 4 adults and 2 children. Loved the waterfront location, spent alot of time on pier fishing and crabbing. We had about 3/4 bushel of crabs by wednesday night, and they were TASTY! Our friends brought there Carolina skiff, and we were able to get in and out the creek even at low tide (it did get pretty shallow though). Great neighborhood for bike riding, and nice place to drop in your kayak. Everything was well kept, and I really enjoyed the tree frog that would climb on the living room window (outside) at night. Everyone was extremely nice from the owner herself, the cleaning lady and the real estate agent. The cleaning lady even gave us a watermelon!!

PERFECT FOR 2 FAMILIES!

  • 5 of 5
This house was ideal for our two families, one from Colorado and the other from Vermont. We had a total of four adults and three children. The layout of the house gave everyone enough individual space and easily accomodated all of us together in the living areas. The screened in porch was great for meal times and we were all able to crab and fish off the dock without interfering with each other. The furnishings were comfortable and the house was well stocked. We all enjoyed our stay!

PRIVACY, YET SO CLOSE TO EVERYTHING!

  • 5 of 5
My family has never spent a more relaxing vacation - EVER! Minutes to shopping, entertainment, dining, Busch Gardens, Virginia Beach, etc. The home itself was immaculate and met our every need. Owner could not have been easier to work with and neighbors were friendly and helpful. You can take a walk thru the development and everyone you meet or who passes you in a car will wave and greet you. If you want to just unwind, fish/crab from the dock, get away from it all - this is where you want to go! Priced extremely well - go ahead and compare!
