CONTACT MANAGER FOR STAYS LESS THAN 7 NIGHTS.

This 100 year old Victorian house has plenty of space for families to enjoy their vacation together without tripping over each other. Only 5 blocks from the quiet Chesapeake Bay beach, this beautifully renovated home with front porch and two rear decks is walking or biking distance from restaurants, shops, a fishing pier, golf course and marina. There is off street parking in the front and rear alley access is perfect for boat parking.

This home is perfect for two families with living space on the first floor and bedrooms on the second and third floors. There is cable TV in the family room and three bedrooms, a blue-ray player in the family room, and a DVD player in one of the bedrooms. Baby gates and a booster seat are available.

This large Victorian house has been newly remodeled and divided into adjoining units. For large parties please inquire about the adjoining unit. Together it adds up to 10 bedrooms and plenty of space to relax!

Why the Owner Chose Cape Charles: My husband and I visited Cape Charles in November of 2009 and fell in love with the small town. We bought our house soon after. It is a perfect little town for our family to enjoy each other and the simple things in life.

The Unique Benefits of this Condo: We love walking everywhere with our family. It is so easy to get to the beach, park, shops and restaurants without getting everyone in their car seats! The house has enough room that everyone can spread out and do their own thing, but we can easily come together and enjoy things together also!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is the second year we have stayed at this property. We loved it so much the first time, we had to come back! There is so much room and we are close to the beach. We really couldn't ask for more from a vacation rental. We now have wonderful memories from our vacation to Cape Charles! Looking forward to another vacation at Life's a Beach next year.

Perfect Vacation for kids

  • 5 of 5
6 of us stayed in this house for a week. There aren’t enough good things to say about this property – it is absolutely huge. Not only that, I can honestly say it’s one of the nicest homes in the neighborhood.
There are plasma tvs all over the house. There is a washer/dryer, fully stocked kitchen, deck with a grill, basically anything and everything you would need for a great vacation.
If you have kids, you will not find a better beach (it’s about 6 blocks away from the house). The water is shallow and you can literally walk about 300 feet in and it still won’t reach above your waste.. My kids absolutely loved it – we went to the beach twice every day.
In addition, there is a very nice library next door with a ton of activities for the little ones as well as a great playground about 2 blocks away.
The town itself is very quiet and the people are extremely nice.

To sum it all up, if you have children and are looking for a nice and quiet vacation – this home is definitely for you!

Great Time for Two Families!

  • 4 of 5
We had two families stay in this home and there was plenty of space. The pictures definitely make the rooms appear smaller than actual. The dining room was perfect for all 8 of us and could accommodate more. The kitchen was well equipped. The house was clean. We packed light and used the laundry facilities daily.

Our kids were ages four, three and a half, two and 22 months so we opted to drive to the beach since the little legs couldn't happily make the 1/2 mile walk home at the end of the day. We did walk to the library, park/playground and town center.

Opportunities for improvement:
- We were disappointed with the toiletries available in the house since we had to buy hand soap, paper towels/napkins, toilet paper and tissues.

- Large citronella candles or torches would be a great addition to the home as we missed out on evening porch sitting because the bug spray alone just wasn't cutting it.

-We wish there were two queen beds instead of only one in this property.

- There were a lot of flies indoors. We were swatting at them constatntly. Although I doubt this is an issue with the property and is more about being at the beach since we did see our neighbors swatting often too.

Attractions:
The beach was amazingly stress free with the little ones. They had plenty of freedom to roam and still be visible to adults. Even on the weekend it was not crowded at all. They only had to wear their swim vests one morning during high tide. Other times there were enough sand bars they could walk for a long time and be waist deep or less.

We enjoyed the town shops and rental of beach equipment.

We had fabulous (although pricey) seafood at both Aqua and Sting Rays.

The adults did an amazing 2 hour kayak trip through the wildlife refuge with southeast expeditions.

Overall, I highly recommend Cape Charles and this property for a relaxing, laid back and low stress family beach vacation.

Ditto!

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family used this home for a four day adventure in togetherness and had a great time. Everyone was comfortable; we weren't too crowded and the house was lovely. It would benefit from having a few more games/puzzles/books to use while you are there, as I was expecting to find these in the home and we didn't bring much in that dept. But that's a small thing. We enjoyed Cape Charles, even though its Renaissance isn't yet complete. We also spent a great day up in Chincoteague. (Check out Cap'n Barry's for a great boat ride up there). The house is a duplex, and the owners of the next door place were there and were so friendly and helpful to us. That was totally a plus!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your extended weekend at our house! We are headed there ourselves next week and just stocked up on more games, puzzles and books for the house. Thanks for letting us know! Hope you come back!

Great house, totally remodeled, walk to the beach!

  • 5 of 5
This house is so nice and it's HUGE! It would be a great rental for multiple families. The bedroom is so large!! This is an older house that has been totally remodeled and updated. It is so nice inside. There is a nice front porch and a big back deck which is great for hanging out on after a day at the beach. It so convenient to have the beach walking distance - no need to load up the car with sand just walk! It also has several flat screen TVs so you don't have to miss your shows. All and all we loved our stay in this house and plan to go back again!

This is a great vacation rental with so much room. It would be great for 2 families. The home is older with so much character, yet it has been totally remodeled and updated. The bedrooms are huge! The kitchen is very nice with granite countertops. We also loved the front and back porch to hang out on. I highly recommend this home for a great, relaxing and enjoyable vacation.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time staying in your lovely home. It had everything we wanted...all the amenities, tons of space for the kids to run around, short walk to the beach, and a very short walk to the quaint downtown. We hope to come back again very soon!
