Take a fun and relaxing break in this exciting 3 bedroom retreat with gorgeous Chesapeake Bay views! You'll enjoy the upscale casual elegance of this bright, cheerful West Indies style home decorated with quality furnishings and tasteful appointments. This sunny home is located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia across the Chesapeake Bay from Virginia Beach. Cook to your heart's delight in a gourmet kitchen, grill on the deck or walk to the Marina and dine inside or out at the Aqua Restaurant. The top level 'sky room' is a great place to enjoy the views, read, or watch TV and is complete with a wet bar, refrigerator and large screen HD TV. If a 4th bedroom is needed, there is a very comfortable pull-out queen sofa here. Two expansive porches invite outdoor relaxation, sunbathing and casual dining. The lower porch has a 'rain escape' system which allows dry enjoyment even in the rain! The Great Room has comfortable seating, a game table and large screen HD TV. Table games and cards are available along with a nice selection of books. And last but not least, take a short stroll along the beach.
The house is located in Bay Creek Marina within walking distance of the beach, restaurant and marina. There are two championship golf courses (Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer) in town with great golf packages. An olympic-size pool and tennis are yours to enjoy on the golf side of Bay-Creek, a short 5 minute drive. Several restaurants offer the options of fine dining to very casual. Boating, fishing, crabbing, kayaking, jet skiing, antiquing, horseback riding, eco tours and Bay cruises will fill your days along with relaxing on the Marina's private beach just steps away from the front door -- or chill out inside and relish your escape to the comforts and amenities provided at 'Cape Escape'.
My sister, Barbara, and I own this house together. We are both real estate agents with very few weekends off but when they come along, this is one of our favorite ways to spend them. Our families were even more excited when we bought the house since they have more free time to play than we do. We furnished and decorated the house ourselves (which is a hobby for both of us) and had a great time doing it and love finding ways to make it better each time we have a guest. Everyone says we have the nicest house in Cape Charles! We love to think so, and hope you will too.
CAPE CHARLES VACATION RENTALS purchased this house in 2005
We went exploring on a rainy Easter weekend looking for a great place to escape to on occasion as well as a good investment. We discovered the charming historic town of Cape Charles and were so impressed with the development of the Bay Creek Resort and all it's amenities that we had to jump in with both feet. It took us about 20 minutes to make that decision!
You can spend the day golfing or boating or antiquing or just chill out on the beach or read a good book on the deck. We've tried out the great restaurants but love 'Aqua' which is in the Marina. Kelly's Pub on the 'main drag' of Cape Charles is a great casual hang out too, and the food is good! The town of Cape Charles is small and quite charming and takes you away from the 'workaday world' and all its stresses.
If you want a relaxing time at the beach, this is the place for you. It is a great place for the kids and the adults. The house is beautiful and so convenient to the beach, the pool, and an awesome small town where you can get the best seafood and shop for wonderful treasures. My family loved our weekend and are planning to return next year for a week. Debi from Virginia
My family and I rented the Great Escape to the Cape Escape home for Thanksgiving, and it was the best experience we could have hoped for! The house was big enough for everyone to spread out, and cozy enough for all of us to be together on the main floor. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a delicious Thanksgiving dinner, and we had lots of restaurants to choose from in the area when we got tired of leftovers. The house was also immaculate; literally sparking clean from top to bottom. I've never rented a house so carefully cared for! Also, for any questions we had, management was readily available, even though it was a holiday weekend. We will definitely consider the Great Escape again -- maybe for the summer! Thanks for a memorable experience!
We had such a wonderful time during our vacation at the Great Escape in Cape Charles. The house was amazing and exceeded our expectations! It was spacious, beautifully decorated, ideally located and exceptionally clean! We will certainly be back as this was one of the most relaxing vacations we've had in some time. Be sure to walk to the water (just a few steps from the house) to catch an amazing sunset!
Not that we expected an unclean, small, undesirable home... Yet the home owners did surprise us with a wonderful welcome basket of goodies from a local store plus up-scale toiletries in every bathroom. The home is beautiful and comfortable with gorgeous views of the water and sunsets. We found the local people to be very friendly and relaxed. We were happy to stay at Cape Escape and learn more about Cape Charles.
I (Melissa) just want to say thank you for this wonderful home! We have rented a few different homes, and are often disappointed. Before we get to a home I usually prepare myself to expect it to be not as nice as it looks online. Your home is even better than it looks online. Not only is it beautiful, but it is so well stocked with things we need. That is another area that is often disappointing in a a vacation rental. We have a large family and I love to cook, so it is so nice to have everything I need! It is obvious that you have considered what you would for want for your own family in a vacation home......beach towels, laundry soap, beautiful decor, etc.. Thank you for taking the extra time to make it a relaxing vacation for others! We are here to make memories with our children. I'm sure they will always talk about this wonderful home. I wish you could have heard the "ooohs & aahs" from them when we walked in! :) We will be enjoying the beach with them today. (which is in easy walking distance !) Thank you also for the lovely gift basket.
Many blessings to you -
My family and I stayed here the week leading up to July 4. House is wonderful. Spacious. Very well equipped. Great master bathroom. Top notch appliances etc. Nice extra touches -- welcome basket, beach towels; beach chairs and umbrellas in garage for guest use. Short stroll to little beach on bay. Very quiet. Cape Charles is VERY low-key. Only 45 minutes to Va Beach for beach town action/waves etc. Deposit returned timely.
We look forward to our summer vacations at your lovely home. This year the grandchildren visited and we enjoyed spending time fishing, crabbing and swimming with them.There is so much for them to do in Cape Charles. We love the fact that we do not have to bring beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, etc. Everything is right there for us to use. It's just perfect. We had some down time once the children left and were able to enjoy the beautiful sunsets from the deck. We love the Aqua Restaurant being so close that we can walk to dinner and not worry about driving. Thanks so much for allowing us to rent your little piece of heaven!!!
