We are ONE BLOCK from a pristine sandy beach on the Chesapeake Bay! How long does it take to get there? Watch our short video A WALK TO THE BEACH (from vrbo click VIDEO button at top of website; from homeaway click link at very bottom of page; from vacationrentals click on very last photo).

Folks tell us that after a long drive, arriving at a house they've never seen before, when they walk inside SOUTHERN BREEZES the first word they utter is 'Wow!' How loud the 'Wow' expresses how charming, spacious, and clean the house is.

Cape Charles is a Victorian village, and our grand old four-level brick duplex epitomizes the character of the town. Built in 1923 for two families, that's the way SOUTHERN BREEZES remains today. Choose between the NOR'WESTER for up to 8 people (maximum 6 adults) or the NOR'EASTER for up to 10 (maximum 8 adults). Each side is the same size; only the bed configuration differs.

The Nor'wester and Nor'easter each include a living room and front porch, dining room, eat-in kitchen and half bath on the first floor. An easy walk up the presentation staircases brings you to three bedrooms and a full bath. The full basement includes a laundry room with stall shower and sink on each side with four bicycles and crabbing gear, just a few steps down from the outside entrances.

The Nor'wester has 1 king bed, 1 queen bed, 2 twin beds, and 2 bunks. The bunks are on the sleeping porch sun room for kids old enough to stay downstairs by themselves. (And they will be thrilled -- there's even a TV!)

Over in the Nor'easter there's a king and a twin in the front bedroom, a queen and a twin in the middle bedroom, a queen in the back bedroom and 2 bunk beds downstairs for kids.

Every room has cable TV/DVD plus online movies & music from Netflix, Pandora, Amazon, and Hulu. And the living rooms have Angry Birds and Pac-Man games as well.

And of course, we have high-speed WIFI Internet!

The kitchens seat 6, and the formal dining rooms up to 8. The living rooms each have both a sofa and a love seat -- ideal for watching movies on the flat panel TVs.

Each room has a window AC, (6 per side) so everybody can be happy at their own preferred temperature. Or, open the big windows and catch the breezes! The bedrooms also have ceiling fans and transoms over the doors.

There's a shower/bath on each second floor, another shower in each lower level laundry room, and a private hot shower outside (our favorite).

Kitchens include a double-door fridge with water and ice dispenser, dishwasher, disposal, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender, electric teapot, TV, etc.

Four cruiser bicycles on each side, and two more in the carport.

Full-size washer and dryer in each laundry room.

Bed selection ranges from firm to plush, with memory foam toppers and lots of pillows.

Enjoy Cracker Barrel rockers and wicker furniture on the divided front porch, stainless steel pots and pans in the kitchens, and both gas and charcoal grills (brand new for 2015) in each separate picnic area out back.

Premium quality sheets, blankets, pillows, and towels (including beach towels), soap, dishes, silverware, and pots & pans. Also lots of books and magazines -- plus the town library is a 5-minute walk away!

Arranging to stay at SOUTHERN BREEZES is easy: no contract to sign, no check to write, no security deposit, no worries about keys. Just call with your credit card info. You'll receive an email receipt and welcome letter with everything you need to know, including the lock box combination on the front door. When you depart, just return the key to the lock box -- that's it!

Everyone LOVES our monthly payment plan! For example, reserve six months in advance and have 1/6 automatically charged each month to your credit card. Or if you prefer, pay half to reserve and half upon arrival. Either way, if you have to cancel for any reason, all your payments are refunded without penalty.

This house has it all: historic charm, perfect location to beach and town, and reasonable rates -- all geared toward families looking for a relaxing, spacious, clean but not too fancy old homestead for gatherings up to 6 adults per side plus their children and the family dog. (No cats, please -- they prefer to stay home anyway!)

PARENTS -- This area is perfect for children! The bay is calm and shallow. There's a huge park and playground just up the street. Bikes are the way to go! There's a skateboard park, tennis court, basketball court (at Baptist Church), beach volleyball games every night, fishing and crabbing. For a change of pace, take a day trip across the bridge to Virginia Beach, Busch Gardens, and Williamsburg.

Cape Charles is also golf cart legal. If you rent a cart, you can keep it in the carport out back.

About George Southern

We are two families who purchased SOUTHERN BREEZES with the aim of retiring here. After living all over the world, we can say we've never seen a place quite like Cape Charles -- the town that time forgot!

George Southern purchased this house in 2010

Why George Southern chose Cape Charles

Maybe we're biased, but we think Monroe Avenue is the best street to live on in Cape Charles! It starts at the beach and runs to Central Park, where it stops, so there is no through traffic! You can count the cars that pass in an hour on the fingers of one hand -- and they drive about 10 mph.

What makes this house unique

For all its charm, Cape Charles has yet to be overrun by tourists. Most of the available lodging is in privately owned homes like ours. Come stay in a restored private home and you'll feel like you always lived here!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Location was great -- close to the beach and close to the playground and the shops in town! Everything we needed was in the house. The girls (6 & 9) enjoyed the boogie boards and playing on the beach using the sand toys. We all enjoyed games and movies. Thanks for a pleasant stay! There was adequate room for 4 adults and 2 children.

This is our third stay at this property as a family and we enjoyed it tremendously. So much is provided for guests that we didn't have to worry with bedding and towels which are abundantly offered. The bedrooms are very comfortable, entertainment is provided with television connections and good books to enjoy. Cooking is very adequate with utensils, pots and pans, and large sized refrigerator and nice stove. All of the rooms are comfortable and both areas are quite large enabling multiple family members to vacation together.

Thank you for the hospitality! Our family enjoyed some wonderful days at Southern Breezes. Our young children loved the beach, playground, outdoor shower, rocking chairs, and walking to Brown Dog for ice cream. Hope to be back! Thanks so much!

A Week To Remember On Virginia's Eastern Shore

A Week To Remember On Virginia's Eastern Shore
  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful vacation week our family experienced in Cape Charles, Virginia. It started with a no nonsense rental process with George, one of the property owners. The rental fee was all inclusive, no hidden fees or surprise charges. George could not have been more responsive nor more professional in his communication with me.

We rented one half of the wonderful Colonial home. The other half was rented to a family making their 5th straight summer visit to the home, which speaks volumes. Our family of six adults, two children (ages 4 and 6) and our dog found the accommodations to be very clean and frankly exceeded our expectations. Extras such as beach toys, boogie board, four bicycles, backyard picnic area with two grills, outdoor shower and more made our stay so comfortable.

Cape Charles itself made our family feel as though we had stepped back in time to a more relaxed way of life. I realized this area was special when everyone would give you a friendly wave. We walked to everything in town (one block to the beach, two blocks to the park and playground and four blocks to the downtown business area).

The beach was of particular pleasure especially for our two young granddaughters. Because it is located on the bay side of the Eastern Shore, there is very little wave impact to beach goers. No rip tides or hidden currents to be concerned with and at low tide the girls could literally walk some 200 yards away from shore. The sunsets were absolutely gorgeous and perhaps the best attribute was how sparsely crowded the beach was at all times of the day.

Although we cooked most of our meals in the fully furnished kitchen, we did frequent the local ice cream parlor, The Brown Dog, more than once! We also had a very good meal at the Shanty overlooking the Cape Charles harbor. A visit to the local museum gave us a historical perspective on the Eastern Shore and Cape Charles in particular. We have two golfers in the family and the local Palmer and Nicklaus courses were excellent.

Our entire family found Cape Charles and our "home away from home" to be such a relaxing place that we hope to return many times in the future.

Out Of This World!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of six just returned home from our amazing stay at Southern Breezes. We have stayed in Cape Charles before and this house totally "wowed" us, as promised. We could not believe our eyes when we opened the front door. The house was immaculate. The kitchen was fully functional - there was not one pan or utensil that we did not have. We enjoyed using the grill in the back yard. Our 4 children loved the fact that they each had their own TV and could choose such a huge variety of shows. We made good use of the bikes and sand toys that were kept in the basement. An additional plus was all of the shampoo, conditioner, body wash, laundry and dish detergent that was provide in the rental fee. George and Dorie provided excellent customer service. They were always immediately available by email and answered many questions that we had regarding the area. We spent a lot of time at the Cape Charles Beach, both fishing and soaking in the sun. We travelled to Busch Gardens in Wililamsburg on one day and chartered a fishing boat (out of neighboring Oyster) the next. We enjoyed our meal at The Shanty - the food was so fresh and delicious. We were all comfortable in Southern Breezes. It had a nice home away from home feel. We would highly recommend this property and we are already planning our next trip to Cape Charles.

Fun for Cousins!

  • 5 of 5
Great time! House is perfect for a group. We cooked a lot so we spent most nights relaxing at home, watching movies, or hanging out on the porch with our fantastic neighbors from the other side of the house. Beach, every day, right down the street. Everything was better than described and owners couldn't be nicer. Hope to be back soon!

2 underbara semesterveckor i juli

  • 5 of 5
Vi( 2 vuxna och 2 barn a 10 och 13) bodde i 2 veckor i den Noréaster-delen av huset och tyckte att det i alla avseenden var ett fantastiskt boende . Uppskattade mycket att huset var komplett i alla avseenden, från sänglinne till cyklar, vilka vi använde med nöje , för att utforska staden med omgivningar.
Allt i huset var rent och fräscht.
Suveränt nära beach och bad och väl utrustat med parasoller och badleksaker, för dagar på stranden.
Tyckte dessutom det var toppen med en utedusch på baksidan efter besök på stranden.
Hyresvärdarna på båda sidor var mycket vänliga och tillmötesgående med avseende på våra frågor om området etc.
Detta är sålunda ett ställe man gärna återvänder till för att sitta på verandan i kvällningen och lyssna på syrsorna och insupa den lugna, vänliga atmosfären.

We are ONE block from the beach. Maybe we're biased, but we think Monroe Avenue is the best street to live on in Cape Charles! It starts at the beach, runs to Central Park, and stops, so there's no through traffic! Almost every place is an easy walk: Kelly's Gingernut Pub & Restaurant, the new harbor Seafood Shanty, various gift/arts/antique shops, coffee shops, sandwich shops, public library, Post Office, churches, Pizza/deli, Watson's Hardware, Palace Theatre, Bailey's Bait & Tackle. Rayfield's Pharmacy and soda fountain and the public marina. Aqua Restaurant in Bay Creek is a mile away. Golf courses (and Coach House Restaurant) are 5 minutes away.
