FANTASTIC BAYFRONT HOME,GREAT WATER VIEWS,WITH KAYAKS& BIKES

Chincoteague Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

You will never want to leave this home magnificently set in a private bayfront area overlooking oyster and clam beds, a marshy bird filled 'tump', and enjoying a panoramic view of Oyster Bay and Assateague Island. Kayak, bird watch, bike, sun bathe, fish and crab, or just relax, lounge, read or enjoy a cocktail on the screened in porch or any deck. An exciting architectural design, local artwork including carvings, paintings and artifacts, an eclectic book collection, and hi tech amenities such as Wi-Fi, LCD TVs, Stereo, iPod docking station will compete for your attention.

The kitchen will delight any chef, the wet bar makes entertaining easy, a bumper pool table adds to the fun, a separate TV room, keeps the noise away. Two fireplaces add to the ambiance. Upstairs bedrooms are configured to create a master suite, bath and tower lookout on one side of the house, and on the other side is a bedroom with private balcony, and a separate twin bedded room and a main bathroom with a jacuzzi tub.

Relax at Sunrise View

We have the million dollar view! The house is a marvelous place to 'hang out'. The scenes are ever changing. The water birds are always a delight to watch. Star gazing is great. Hear the ocean waves from Assateague, or see wild ponies grazing across the bay. Take a cup of coffee or a cocktail up to the tower and enjoy the views. The property has 200 ft. of waterfront on Oyster Bay - to the left there is a park- like feel.

In front along the water's edge, there is plenty of room to throw in a fishing line (flounder and stripped bass are caught), or a crab line or a crab pot. Listen to the call of the gulls, and watch the Osprey soar. Take a kayak (2 included with the rental) on a little water/ marsh adventure. Boat to Assateague, clam or explore - minimal boat traffic. Sunbathe, relax on the decks with your favorite book, smell the salt air, feel the breeze, unwind, relax. It's paradise!!!

Enjoy the Beach and the Food

The beach on Assateague is fantastic (8 min. ride by car). Voted one of the 10 best beaches in America, it is natural and wild in places, yet offers beaches with life guards in the main approach area. Tom's Cove on the bayside of the beach is no more than 200 yards away - for a no wave swim. The sand is pristine. Surf fish if you like. Watch the dolphins. Picnic at the beach, use our chairs and cooler. - (also 'necessary rooms' on site). For a fun change take a bike (4 included in the rental) to the beach and enjoy a ride along the Assateague wild life trail on the way home.

On the way home stop for fresh seafood at Howard's - just around the corner from the house, and pick up fresh oysters, clams, mussels, crabs, lobsters, scallops, or fish - you'll have a great dinner on the porch. If you don't want to cook, AJ's on the Creek, Bill's and others, will provide you with some very good fare (we will provide you a restaurant guide). For a culinary delight, a charming town, a nice walk along the Creek, drive to Onancock for the evening - 5+ wonderful restaurants - 50 minutes south.

Activities and Exploring

Chincoteague was voted the best Beach Town in America - see why...Be on the lookout for the Chincoteague Ponies in the wild. Visit the Batemen Wildlife Center on Assateague and sign up for the Wildlife Tram Tour - learn about the island ecology, ponies and water fowl. Visit the Oyster Museum (Chincoteague history), bike around the islands - both Chincoteague and Assateague, rent a motorboat and fish, take a sightseeing tour by water, a sunset cruise, play miniature golf, see a first run movie, buy homemade ice cream at the Island Creamery, shop til you drop at the many unique boutiques, gift shops, bookstores and galleries. Go to the Fireman's Carnival (July 1- Aug. 7 weekends).

The Pony round-up, swim, and auction week is extra special (July 24th week). Watch the 'Misty of Chincoteague Video. Visit the NASA museum just off the island. Head north or south for adventure - discover Eastern Shore delights ... or simply savor the delights of Chincoteague and immerse yourself in Island life.

About Chuck Maddox

Both of us fell in love with Chincoteague Island a long time ago... when we were in our late 20's. We fell in love with it's unspoiled beaches, the wildlife, the ponies and the pleasant,low key feel of the island and its people. Our children and our grandchildren have grown up loving the island and our house. We have had reunions, wedding receptions and just plain fun there. We are now retired, and just started renting our house, but only for a limited number of weeks. It is a home for us, but we decided we would share it with selected renters, whom we feel confident will enjoy it and take care of it just like we do.

Chuck Maddox purchased this house in 1986

Why Chuck Maddox chose Chincoteague Island

This is our second home on Chincoteague, and while we loved our first house, a canal front property, we knew we wanted to be directly on the bay - and specifically Oyster Bay. The views on the bay are second to none. So when we looked for a new place, it had to be there. When my wife saw the house we now own, she said very demonstrably - 'I want that house' even though the original was nothing like it is today. With a bird filled marsh and oyster beds right in front, and perfect views of Morris and Assateague Islands, we have incomparable views. Our friends all say we truly have the 'million dollar view'. Add great wildlife viewing and excellent water to boat and kayak on, we really have the perfect spot.

What makes this house unique

We redesigned the house to look great but most important to be comfortable, functional, and be a place where you really get away from it all. Peace and serenity abide here. We maximized our water views. The light flows everywhere so there is always a cheery feel to the place. We like to entertain - and the open flow of rooms, fireplaces, wet bar, bumper pool, and sound system facilitate that. The decks, along with comfortable outdoor furniture, allow you to read and sun bathe, and soak in the views. The screened porch offers waterfront dining. The tower gives you a great long distance observation place to sit and sip a coffee or a have a drink. Boating, kayaking, and fishing are right in the backyard. It's a truly wonderful place to be!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the home for a week and it was most enjoyable. The view from the porch was just breathtaking. Everything we needed was provided. The kitchen was very well equipped even had a hand mixer to I could make a birthday cake for my daughter in law . Lots of space for everyone to spread around.

Excellent Home

  • 5 of 5
Very enjoyable 6 days in Chintogeauge! The house was beautiful, clean, comfortable and contained everything you could need or want. We were very impressed. As this was our first trip from the UK to the area and the first time we have booked through VRBO. we were very happy with the booking arrangements and the description of the house on VRBO - all went very smoothly. Thank you!

Sunrise Shore Gem

  • 5 of 5
This home provides a lovely and comfortable setting for a fantastic Chincoteague Island vacation. The views of the bay are spectacular. The amenities are plentiful. We rode bikes to the beaches at Assateague everyday, and crabbed, kayaked, and swam in Oyster Bay right from the property. This was our second stay at this property and we hope to return frequently in the years to come.

Great family rental!

  • 4 of 5
This was a perfect location and all was as described in the listing! My daughter loved the crabbing off the dock and the spiral staircase to the lookout. The owner Chuck was very easy to work with and answered all our questions prior to arriving since this was our first time renting a private house. The experience was great! The only bad thing is that the fishing off the dock is not good but we had a great time crabbing there so we really didn't care. It would be a perfect location for one to dock their boat to have access to Assateague. The kitchen and grill was perfect for the many meals we ate in house! I'm sure we will be back one day.
