'MARINA SUNSET' - WATERFRONT RETREAT OVERLOOKING MONROE BAY

Colonial Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4-5

Marina Sunset is situated on the upper level of a bayfront cottage. 'INCREDIBLE' best describes the sunset views of Monroe Bay from the front deck of this gorgeous vacation rental on the 'Point'. This beautifully decorated and fully equipped two-bedroom unit sleeps up to 5 and offers everything you could possibly need for an enjoyable vacation, from bicycles to a karaoke machine! Our guests have full use of the back porch, patio, yard and grill. Perfect for a solitary retreat or a relaxing time with family or friends.

Colonial Beach is only a 90-minute drive from DC or Richmond. You will not want to leave this lazy river town, bordered by the Potomac River and Monroe Bay, and where golf carts and boats are the main means of transportation! Enjoy our beautiful beaches and boardwalk, the town pier, museum, antique shops, town 'trolley', coffee shop and restaurants, boat charters, or just relax! Everything in town is accessible by walking, bicycle or golf cart (which you can rent in town)!

We would love to have you at Marina Sunset as our guests!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a great stay at the Marina Sunset. We've never been at colonial beach before, so that was a change for us city folks. Despite the weather, we managed to settle in and do some site seeing.



I'm sure in the summer there's a lot more going on than in March, so chances are we would be willing to come back and visit.



Thanks again for all your trust...hopefully you'll have more confidence in us 20-something year olds :)

We are baby boomers with lots of energy and young at heart! Jim is a handyman and Glenda handles all the bookkeeping and management of the cottage. We love meeting new people and sharing our little piece of heaven, so this is just our cup of tea!

Glenda Chiarello purchased this cottage in 2007

Colonial Beach is a hidden gem of the Northern Neck. We lived in Richmond, VA, and came upon this lazy little river town while exploring one weekend. We fell in love with the quaint step-back-in-time feeling, and the natural beauty of this town so rich in history. And the people...everyone waves hello! So we packed up an moved here, and we just love this way of life and especially sharing it with visitors! We live downstairs, and Marina Sunset is on the upper level!

You will immediately fall in love with the amazing views of Monroe Bay from the living room and front deck of Marina Sunset! Whether day or night, you will experience the tranquility of the beautiful wildlife, sailboats, and magnificent sunsets Golf-cart community, trolley, great beaches, town events, sightseeing, bird watching, boating, artist guild, antiquing, great restaurants, very relaxing atmosphere are all here for you in Colonial Beach within walking or biking distance of the cottage!

It is a great place, perfect for relaxing week-end. the only drawback is the internet connection, not always available. It's the only thing that should be improved

Beautiful and so relaxing

  • 5 of 5
Just back from a week's stay at Marina Sunset, Colonial Beach. The property is exactly as it looks on the website - lovely décor, extremely clean, cosy with gorgeous views over Monroe Bay. Everything you need for your stay is provided - including much appreciated beach chairs. The beach is within walking distance. Colonial Beach is a quiet, relaxing place although there are plenty of sites nearby to visit eg. Stratford Hall & George Washington's Birthplace being just a few. We just came and went to the house - Glenda & Jim were totally unobtrusive - although were on hand if we were to have any queries. We ate at the Light House a few times and had excellent meals there. Also try Densons Grocer & Deli in town for lunch - lovely friendly atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Marina Sunset and would recommend it to anyone staying in the area.

Best Vacation in a Long Time!

Glenda and Jim,

We had the best time, truly! We all loved the cottage and the town of Colonial Beach! Everything was just like you said it would be and all the special touches you all put forth for your guests is much appreciated. We would stay with you guys again in a heartbeat! I wish we could have said goodbye in person, but we got up so early and didn't want to wake you. Thanks again for a wonderful place to stay!

A great, quiet, family place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
This is a perfect place for rest, or for genuine old fashioned family fun. Bicycles, outdoor BBQ and deck furniture were provided along with the very clean indoor accomodations of the home. The kitchen was well supplied, the washing machine/dryer was great, and indoor exercise equipment was also available. We enjoyed the quaint town atmosphere and leisurely pace. Restaurants, shops, activities are all within 5-10 minutes. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended. This could be a good place to stay for day trips in to Washington DC or other Virginia sites.

Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Jim and Glenda, THANK YOU for such a wonderful two-night getaway from "the big city". You have a lovely home in a very peaceful location. We loved the view of the marina with all the boats tied up, and it was interesting to watch the crabman go out early in the morning to set out all his traps. Inside, the way you have the upstairs decorated is delightful, comfy and cozy. Walking the streets of Colonial Beach and looking at the architecture while talking with the friendly residents of this quaint little town was a real treat. We also greatly enjoyed the bikes that you provided for a daily ride. (I got a lot of compliments on your pink cruiser as I pedaled around the Point, by the way! :-) We do hope we have the opportunity to come visit again!

A gem of a place

We had a great and laid-back time in Colonial beach. Glenda was extremely helpful, and the apartment was well looked after.

Some highlights:
Tides cafe for great coffee and pastries.
Seafood lunch at Solomon Islands.
Breathtaking sunset views from the apartment.
Wine tasting at Ingleside winery.
Thai food at Seaside.
Riding bikes around the Island.

A trip to Colonial Beach is like stepping back in time to a simpler way of life! Enjoy the beautiful Potomac River beaches, collect shells and sea glass, go fishing, birdwatch, experience the sailboats coming in at sunset, shop the many antique shops and specialty stores, enjoy the waterfront restaurants, walk out on the town pier, stroll the boardwalk, visit our museum and ride the 25 cent trolley to get a historical tour of this lovely seaside town! Golf Carts in Colonial Beach are street legal, so you will enjoy seeing all various types passing along and beeping. Waving to everyone and saying 'hello' to strangers is not optional in Colonial Beach! Driving outside the town limits within 15 minutes drive, you will find Westmoreland Berry Farm, Westmoreland State Park, Monroe's Birthplace, Washington's Birthplace, Wineries and Golf, Just a little further, within an hours drive, is King's Dominion Theme Park, Fredericksburg sightseeing, and all that the beautiful Norther Neck has to offer!
