The town is charming ...older homes, sidewalks, a 'Main Street' in walking distance, and friendly people. It is quiet, with that small town feel. 'A step back into time'.The area is full of history, activities and exploration. Its close proximity to the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean provide different water experiences. There is a new, upscale marina with shops and a golf village in town. Cape Charles is a day's drive (just a little over 9 hrs.) from our home in Ohio. The Eastern shore is a beautiful area, some have described it similar to the Outer banks and Long Island as it was thiry years ago. The pace is calm and easy here. We have met many people who have been drawn to the area for the same reasons, with whom we have become friends, and look forward to seeing again.

"Bayview Beauty Indeed!!!"

"Bayview Beauty Indeed!!!"

We spent a week at 'Bayview Beauty" with our 2 children at the end of July/beginning August and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was ideal for our needs - spacious, airy and lovely inside. And very close to the beach! We made full use of the screened in porch and found the house welcoming, comfortable and very clean. Cape Charles is a great little town for a holiday with kids. Quiet and easy going with an excellent, safe beach, but with enough going on to keep everyone entertained. A couple of good bars/restaurants, an ice cream parlour, museum, library, etc. A week was not nearly enough to explore the area sufficiently and we are certainly considering returning. All in all we had a great trip and would thoroughly recommend this splendid house. Many thanks!!! Jenny & Lewis
Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in our home and town! ...Rick and Christine

False Advertising and Unpleasant Surprises

  • 2 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 20, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
This is a nice house in a good location, HOWEVER, there are things you should be aware of before you book.

On top of the rental rate, you are required by the owners also to rent their linens, and it is not until you’ve already sent in your non-refundable deposit that you learn that you must wash those sheets and towels before you leave on your last day (or risk not getting your damage deposit returned). With a 10 a.m. check out time, that means an early start to the day to get the job done. In addition, the owners insist that you bring your own laundry detergent to wash their sheets.

The bed we slept in was too soft, and the two side edges sloped downhill to a depression that ran down the center where you have close encounters with a broken spring. My husband and I spent the night clinging to the edge to avoid rolling into the center. The pillows are old, flat as a pancake, and hard. In addition, you are provided with only one thin cotton blanket for each bed. That’s not enough warmth in the colder times of year. Photos on the website show bedspreads on all the beds. If that were true, those spreads would provide an extra layer of warmth, but in fact the beds have no decorative coverings (it was rather bleak to walk into the bedrooms upon arrival to find bare, unmade beds). When we were querying the owner about renting, my husband specifically asked about the quality of the beds as a good night’s sleep is important to us. The owner said the beds were very comfortable. Not so.

The tap water contains excess iron, causing a distinct sulfur smell and an unpleasant taste. Thee 5-gallon water bottle for the water cooler in the kitchen was empty. Clearly the owners are indifferent to keeping up a delivery service schedule to insure tenants have good water. Bring your own drinking water.

The kitchen knives are stored in an attractive knife block, however they are so blunt they are almost useless.

Truth in Advertising?: The website claims that the house has internet access. In fact, there is none. The owners recommend going to a local café or coffee shop several blocks away that has free Wifi.

Hint: If you don’t want to use the antibacterial body wash the owners provide, bring your own bar of soap.
Owner's Response: We were contacted thru the website by another couple initially for a weekend rental Nov.1,2013. At a later date we were contacted by a second party,(writing this review),to finalize shared reservations with the initial couple. My husband did speak with the second party,but not about detailed description/condition of beds, just fees and reservation. The pillowtop queen beds were purchased brand new Aug 2007, described in our original website ad the past 6 years,with use approx.25% of the year. Additional linens, blankets,various types of pillows,are provided and are located in 2nd floor upper hall small linen closet and in childrens bedroom and foyer,as stated in our website ad.There is ALWAYS a lg.box of laundry detergent next to the washer to do house linens. If they plan to do their personal laundry we ask they purchase their own detergent,stated in ad and pre-arrival letter. We ask the guests to start a load of towels,place in dryer,have a load of sheets in washer,and run dishwasher before leaving,to expedite house prep for next guests. Which leads into the next issue,THE"REFUNDABLE DAMAGE" deposit as stated in our agreement. This is for any damage incurred during their stay. There is no mention that this linen request will risk loss of damage deposit if not done. ANTIBACTERIAL SOAP IN DISPENSERS at sinks,showers and tubs..no soap bars for obvious sanitary reasons. Tap water issue of sulfur odor occurs if the house has been unoccupied for an extended time due to the electric hot water tank. Odor dissipates within 24 hrs or sooner depending on volume use. We offer a water cooler for renters who MIGHT enjoy bottled water. It states in our website ad and welcome letter,"renters are responsible to supply water". If there is an empty bottle in home, it can be taken to the supermarket to avoid an additonal bottle deposit, saving $ for our guests.The knives in the butcher block are rental quality.There are additional knives in cutlery drawer. Addressing the issue of the internet access..our ad has ALWAYS clearly stated,"You will need to bring your own laptop computer with wireless capabilities and a hot spot device. Wireless Internet is available at the library,coffee shop and various establishments in town." Maybe our guest did not scroll down on the site and click on the expanded explanation of "internet"on our ad?? We were NEVER contacted DURING their contracted stay 11/1-3/13 re; their concerns/issues,so therefore we were unable to correct/ resolve them.

We enjoyed our stay last summer. House is just as described, very clean and well maintained. photos are very accurate. Proximity to the beach was great with our little girls and it was nice to be able to easily walk to the Main Street. Town is very quiet, even in August, but we found everything we needed.
Would definitely recommend.

Great Vacation

Me, my huband (who is NOT a beach person) and our friends and their two small children rented this home for a week. There was plenty of space and virtually everything you would need, dishwasher, microwave, TV with DVD/VCR and a full washer and dryer. We did need to utilize the washer and dryer everyday since towels were in short supply. What a quick, short walk to the beach! We couldn't see the water but the sand dunes and sea oats are totally visiable from the wonderful screened in porch. We found 2 great pleaces to eat, Kelly's Gingernut Pub and the Shanty were yummy. The shops that included a hardware store and a bait and tackle shop came in very handy. That brings me back to my husband who was NOT a beach person. The uncrowded beach, fishing from the pier, the quaint, comfy Bay cottage and lazy town has him saying he will come back to Cape Charles. Thanks to the owners for letting others enjoy!

Very laid back atmosphere in Cape Charles, VA. We could have stayed in the house and town all summer! The house is just a few steps away from the beach entrance. The setting is great for young children and people looking to actually relax on vacation. The area offers just enough things to do to keep everyone happy, and is a very refreshing when compared to busy Virginia beach. I would recommend this property to anyone. We loved the entire experience!
