Guestbook comments from the owner
Wonderful house ,beautiful views. We enjoyed walking the nature trails at the Deal Island wildlife management area, and got some great pictures of Bald Eagles!

The absolute best part of Deal Island are the people. Treated us like we were old friends. Had a wonderful Friday night hanging out at Arby"s listening to great live music and talking with the locals. If you get a chance check out Mike's dancing -he's a joy!

Next time we plan on getting some fishing in.We had a great stay

Great Home (Rented 9/18/09-9/20/09)

  • 5 of 5
Great home and great place to relax. Bill and Patty were able to accommodate us on very short notice and the house was great. The house is very well kept and cozy. There was more than enough room and great views. The small town was quaint and had great fishing spots. I don't think we've ever had a vacation that was so relaxing fun. Thank you Bill & Patty for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Great Place on Deal Island

  • 5 of 5
This was a great getaway for us for a quiet relaxing time during the summer. We enjoyed biking to the family beach where the kids and our dog had such a great time in the water. Also enjoyed fishing and crabbing on Deal Island. The residents were friendly and very welcoming. The cottage was clean and cozy, Thanks! Bill and Patty, for an enjoyable stay. We would love to visit again, and will definitely recommend to our friends.

Family Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for opening up your beautiful little cottage and sharing it with us. It was very peaceful and what a beautiful view! Had some great family time together. We really enjoyed taking the boat out and exploring around and I kayaked for the first time with my daughter. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Holland is an absolute charm! You all are so blessed to have someone like him taking care of your place. He was the biggest help with giving us information, getting us some crabs to steam. He is such a nice guy and really took care of us.

Thanks again for sharing your home with us. We hope to be able to come back one day.

Well-kept Secret!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent the second week of September at the Sunrise/Sunset Cottage and it was a wonderful experience. The house is very comfortable and has the amenities everyone needs. It was quite close to the water and we had wonderful breezes and enjoyed much of our time on the wonderful screened porch. We were very fortunate that we had some of the best weather of the year. We especially enjoyed the outside fire pit. Sitting there under the most beautiful night sky was awesome! We got to watch a “light show” each time with shooting stars and more constellations than we realized even existed.

We visited the beach near the Deal Island Bridge at least three times and had the entire beach to ourselves. The water was 77 degrees, and we were able to hop right in!

If you travel to Wenona, you’ll meet some of the nicest people in the area. Everyone was friendly and helpful and, more than anything, so welcoming! Arby, Debbie, Holland … all great people!

We also enjoyed excursions to the wonderful Salisbury Zoo (amazing), Crisfield, and Chincoteague Island. The beach at Chincoteague was just breathtaking! Also, the wildlife museum there is very special.

Don’t hesitate to book a stay at the Sunrise/Sunset Cottage. It’s a place where you can relax and really take things slow.

Awesome beach adventure!

  • 5 of 5
My Family had a wonderful stay in your cottage. It was a well maintained property, and clean.
We had 4 teenagers, and they were never bored! The beach on Deal Island is small, but very private and most the time we had it to ourselves. At sunset we would go find more glass and shells than i have EVER seen anywhere before. We boated to little deal island where we explored the island. It is a bit on the rough side, but that was its charm. Totally inhabited by anything but pure nature, and its creatures. We found so many strange objects that kept the kids searching for more. We even found a perfect glass bottle from the 30's totally intact on the beach!
My husband and i did do some fishing from the boat, and we caught some fish. I even had a crab on the line! What would have made it perfect is if we had better access to the water. It was a bit frustrating being so close to the water, but having to drive somewhere to get to the boat. But at least we had that option, where the others rentals didnt.
Arby and his family (and all the locals) were very kind and helpful with everything. We even went to "luckys" and had our last dinner there, and they even gave me a piece of cake with a sparkler for my birthday which was that day. All in all, it was a very relaxing vacation, and i would recommend it to anyone who wants to get back to the basics of nature and quiet. We made a quick day trip to Ocean City, which made the kids happy, but i hated it and couldnt wait to get back to the peaceful island!

Owner's Response: This review really captures the Deal Island experience and the reason we love it so much.
The local residents do make our guests feel welcome.
The Wenona Harbor, where the boat is launched by our boat manager is a short walk from the house. You can see that from the aerial view. The water view location does allows us to offer affordable rates.

Patty & Bill,

OMG you have such a lovely place on Deal Island. Terence & I loved it. Everyone treated us so nice and cordial. Arby is the man though....Unfortunately, Terence & I did not go fishing or crabbing because I think we were relaxing and just chillin and enjoying the peace and quiet.

The listing description was 100% correct. The property was cleaned and very well maintained. The owners showed excellant customer service and great communication. Please keep me in mind for next year, I would love to come back to do it all over again. I also wrote you alittle note and stuck it on the notebook on the counter.

Thank you again,

Nicole & Terence
