BEACHFRONT LUXURY HOME WITH FABULOUS GARDEN AND SPLENDID SUNSET VIEWS ON THE BAY

Cape Charles House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 12))

St Patrick on the Chesapeake bay is a most beautiful home with distinctive european flair and a peaceful and private vacation destination. The beautiful 4500 square foot home is nestled amidst mature hollies, dogwoods, and pine trees, flowers and statuary, overlooking a pristine sandy beach. The property is situated on a high bluff at the mouth where the bay meets the Atlantic Ocean

The 1.5 acre manicured Mediterranean garden was artistically designed and created by the owners who moved to the shore in 1989 directly from Italy. The home is spacious and offers two large living rooms with views of the bay and enchanting garden.There are several places to contemplate nature.An amazing terrace jetting out over the high bluff is the most scenic spot to observe dolphins, sea birds and water men collecting their daily catch. The westerly views offer magical sunsets over the water. Close to a state park and the historic victorian bay front town of Cape Charles.

Meandering, mysterious paths are an invitation to follow the way to a heavenly hidden natural corner where one can truly relate with mother nature. A true oasis away from the hustle and bustle of every day life and yet so convenient to the many amenities the area offers.

The home itself is very spacious with large picture windows and cathedral ceilings. What makes this home unique and distinguished is the elegant European style noticeable in the furnishings and overall decor. As you enter the main front door you are welcomed into a very large open living room/foyer that features an imposing fireplace and French doors leading onto the picturesque deck that visually embraces the lush lawns and stunning Chesapeake Bay beyond. It is easy to envision banquets, weddings as well as special events/meetings taking place in this inspiring and beautiful house. The outstanding green room is a feature worth highlighting as it offers a 500 sq. foot space also with fireplace and 3 absolutely charming bay windows each framing a different landscape view of the park-like garden.

From the back deck , a picturesque gold fish pond and waterfall is a soothing view to enjoy while outdoor grilling and dining. The master bedroom is furnished with museum- worthy last century Neapolitan custom made mahogany furniture and features a quaint sitting room bay window area to take in the spectacular view.

The bay front state park just a few minutes away offers numerous hiking trails, fishing pier and boat ramp. The historic Victorian bay side town of Cape Charles is 10 minutes away and offers shops, a variety of restaurants, a historic live theatre, signature gold courses, tennis and fitness center.

We enjoyed a fabulous weekend here with our relatives. Everything was wonderful! The beautiful gardens and the view over the bay were just amazing- even better than the pictures. There is so much personal detail and unique character around this property that it made us feel like we had traveled to a secluded seaside resort. The home was also very clean and well-equipped. There was something to do for every age in our group. During our stay, we spent time taking walks down the beach to Kiptopeke State Park, fishing, sitting on the beach, and watching dolphins, ships, and gorgeous sunsets from the cliff. The owner was very accommodating and quick to respond to any questions or concerns that we had. Thanks again for sharing your lovely home with us. We look forward to returning soon!

Private beach and amazing sunsets!

  • 4 of 5
We had our annual family reunion here and we're so glad we did! What we especially love about this property is our very own private beach where we can be at the beach all day/night (even camp fires), and we love the amazing sunsets every night. The pictures on the website are not all updated so there are some new couches and beds. The owner (Luisa) was very informative and she responded quickly to any questions we had. Beautiful Italian home! Looking forward to come again!

I have the pictures to prove it

The location is great and our family had a wonderful time. That's where it ended. The home and garden are in disrepair. So much so that it is a safety hazard. If you have young children or seniors in your party you are taking a risk. I cant believe the reviews on here...it just goes to show people try to be nice. Don't say you were not warned.

Owner's Response: Generally speaking, a review may appear promptly, after a good or bad experience,This one was a surprise as it appeared 3 months after our guests stay for the 4th of July week long vacation.There were no signs of their discontent during their stay nor after they left, although several friendly emails were sent back and forth regarding logistics and minutia.
Needless to say, this is in fact the first negative review we have had in the 4 years of renting our family home.We do appreciate people's comments, however, since feedback provides the opportunity to remedy a problem and to make sure everything is perfect for our guests.Luisa and I take great pride in this special property, as it belongs to our family and both the garden and the house have been a big part of our life.In regards to the gardens ,they have been featured in several gardening magazines and local newspapers over the years.They have a strong mediterranean flavor and have been admired by many a guest.Several wedding parties have used our gardens for their photo shoots.
The house is well maintained, clean and tastefully furnished with original artwork on the walls and family heirlooms proudly displayed and willingly shared.This past year the roof was replaced, a bathroom totally remodeled, new insulation was installed. We also purchased a huge and elegant genuine Italian leather living room furniture as we are always updating tired looking furniture, linens and other household items. We almost always make an effort to personally welcome our guests upon their arrival, unless we ourselves are out of town.
We appreciate any comments should they arise and we readily see to accommodating any additional requests as we take our hospitality very seriously.We are truly sorry to learn that our home and gardens didn't meet the approval of these guests.Had we been informed about the problems they were faced with, we undoubtedly would have addressed them immediately.At least it was reassuring to know that in spite of it all they all enjoyed their vacation and thought that the location was wonderful!!
On a side note, we did contact our dissatisfied guests asking them to please inform us on what exactly were the neglected aspects of our home but never did get a response!

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely home in a beautiful spot. The Chesapeake is a nicely sheltered water, and the beaches along this part of the shore are really nice, clean, and sandy. The state park next door is very good, as is the national wildlife reserve a short 5-ish mile bike ride away. Sunsets on the beach or the patio were gorgeous!
We ate oysters and blue crabs harvested directly off the beach. Oysters especially, you could feed an army every day and never notice you'd harvested any.
The house has lots of room, with plenty of spots for our 8-person group and then some. It was nice too to have lots of places to go if you wanted some privacy. The TV in the living room was a bit dated, and we ended up watching our only movie in the great room after moving around some chairs; it worked out fine. And after all we didn't come to watch TV and didn't really care.
We were worried about mosquitoes, but they turned out to be a minor annoyance at worst. There was really only a couple of evenings that we found it necessary to apply repellent.
One thing to keep in mind--it's a good number of steps down to the water, so disabled/impaired folks might be challenged. But the patio you see behind Poseidon in the picture has a good view, especially of the sunset.
We saw many birds, including ospreys, even though we were here in August and thus not during the migration seasons. I bet birds are very impressive in spring and fall. We bought a cheap hummingbird feeder and were rewarded with boht ruby-throated and rufous varieties.
Thanks, Luiza for making this a wonderful vacation!!

Relaxing, Peaceful,Enjoyable and Clean!

We stayed here for a week. The house is located near the end of a private drive adjacent to the Kiptopeke State Park. The landscaping is very nice and makes the house secluded from the neighbors, lots of privacy. The house was amazingly spacious and clean. We have rented homes before where we had to clean or wash dishes before we could use them. NOT here, we were impressed that all the amentities were well take care of. We didn't need to worry that it was not clean. The private beach was nice and would of been great for crabbing. We walked down to the state park to swim because it had bouy's and not as many crabs. Having the state park near was nice because it has the swimming, fishing pier, kayak rental and hiking trials. We would definitely rent this house again. We went fishing with Miss Jennifer's charter out of Cheriton and made a day trip to Virginia Beach and the Aquarium. We highly recommend this house and the area.

The Eastern Shore of Virginia is surrounded by water. On the east by the Altantic Ocean and on the west by the Chesapeake bay. It is connected to the rest of Virginia by the famous 17 mile long Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.

Most people are attracted to the rural flavour and the slower pace and the friendly people. The nature is unspoiled and very scenic. The bay side is the perfect place for the many recreational activities such as boating, swimming, clamming and fishing. For the golf lover Cape Charles is home of two state of the aret signature golf courses- the Arnold Palmer and the Jack Nicklaus course.

Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Boating, Shelling, Wildlife Viewing, Health/Beauty Spa,
