Overview

Sandy Point Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

Ria Casa is located at Sandy Point, Virginia on the Northern Neck. The house is on the waterfront of the Lower Potomac River where it is approximately five miles across to the Maryland shores. You look out onto the Chesapeake Bay from the porch. The beach is sand and the water has a gradual depth increase - perfect for kids!

The cedar-sided house has two floors with five bedrooms. The first floor has two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and the other has two twin beds. There is a full bath on the first floor. The living room has a fireplace and the patio door off the dining room opens onto a deck. The utility room off the dining room contains the laundry and a second refrigerator-perfect for soda, beer, and watermelon! There is an outdoor-shower convenient for a quick rinse after playing in the River! The kitchen is fully outfitted with utensils, dishes, pots/pans and basic supplies. Small appliances include: microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender, popcorn popper, and mixer. There is an electric range/oven, refrigerator and dishwasher. We would ask that you replenish any supplies that you use, i.e., soap, paper towels, tissue, laundry supplies, etc.

The upper floor has three bedrooms. One has twin beds with a port-a-crib setup (there is a high-chair also). One has a king size bed and the other - a "kids dorm" - it has three twin beds. There is also one twin roll-away to supplement. There is a bath on the second floor with a shower stall.

The lawn is cut on a bi-weekly basis. The trash is picked up on Monday mornings. However, we do have pesky dogs that get into the cans so we ask that you please include a dose of ammonia in the bags when you set them into the containers. ALL trash must be bagged in black trash bags.

The screened porch has a large picnic table and a smaller one. The Propane grill is located on the deck outside the dining room.

We have fresh linens on the beds when you arrive, and ask that you wash/dry any linens you use and remake the beds when you leave. In lieu of this, you may opt to have our housekeeper do this for a separate fee of $75 paid directly to her.

There is a booklet in the house that describes local restaurants and attractions. The DirecTV is equipped with a VCR and DVD. The dock on the left as you look out is for your use.

Check in on Friday is at 3 p.m. and check-out is at 11 a.m. the next Friday. To ensure the comfort of all our guests, there is no smoking allowed inside Ria Casa.

Please remember to turn off any yard lights at night as a courtesy to others

We hope you enjoy the Rivah!

-John & Joni Lawler

Keywords: Guests will enjoy the wide sandy beach with dock, large screened porch, expansive views of lower Potomac and Chesapeake Bay, great fishing, swimming, crabbing, and relaxing!

Why The Owner chose Sandy Point

Joni grew up during the summers here at Sandy Point. Our family's roots run deep with many wonderful memories of a care-free childhood on the Potomac.

What makes this cottage unique

Close to historic landmarks, birthplace of Robert E. Lee, and George Washington. Local produce is plentiful during the summer. In the midst of the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail, moments away from The Hauge Winery. Visit many local antique shops. Hunt for sea glass on your own beach. Bring your camera to photograph your family fun, especially the wonderous sunrises over the Potomac River, and abundant wildlife. The flat terrain is perfect for hiking, or long walks. Sample nearby local marina/restaurants. Stargazers bring your telescopes to view the night-sky from the balcony.

Ria Casa Excellent Establishment!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I recently stayed at the Ria Casa! It is a WONDERFUL rivah house! It is exactly as depicted in the pictures and written description. We had 3 children at the age of 3, a 7 month old and a 9 year old, three young couples and a set of grandparents…FUN was had by ALL! Whether we were just relaxing on the spacious screened in porch on the swing, in the hammock or in a deck chair; OR kayaking on the river (kayaks graciously provided by the home owners); OR riding bikes (also graciously provided by the home owners); OR fishing from the dock; OR just swimming in the river (perfect water levels for young and old to enjoy!!!) The house was big enough that no one got in anyone’s way…plenty of space! The home owners were amazing; they went above and beyond to accommodate us! They provide a guide in the Ria Casa of places to visit, eat, etc., but are also readily willing to tell you fun places to go and great places to eat. We HIGHLY recommend The Driftwood as a place for great local seafood, veggies, etc., the home owners suggested this establishment and it was beyond our expectations! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be going back!
