A 'Perfect Private Beach' If it's Peace and Relaxation you're in search of, you've found it!

Picture that perfect beach day: warm white sugar soft sand, blue sky, gentle waves. Picture yourself there. You see more shorebirds and dolphins than people. You are totally relaxed; You are totally at peace; and, this is your home for the week.

'Water's Edge' is located in the private unincorporated community of Pickett's Harbor. Nestled within a private setting, among the unspoiled landscape of Virginia's Eastern Shore. 'Water's Edge' is direct Chesapeake Bay-front on a private, white sand beach. With its open floor plan, this 4 bedroom, 3 bath luxury home is a sure (shore) hit! This home boasts spectacular views from each and every room. Enjoy panoramic (220 degree+) views from the wrap around deck where exquisite sunsets are the norm. Relax in a hammock or walk for miles, as the nearest neighbor is over a half-mile away.

Our Beach Home: Whatever your fancy; whether it's sipping your morning coffee as you listen to the gentle waves lapping the shore or imbibing in your favorite cocktail while watching a beautiful sunset, you'll find the enclosed portion of the deck the utmost of relaxation. Or perhaps it's grilling your fresh 'catch of the day' then stargaze from the bubbling hot tub.

Beautiful location and house

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five adults and three children had a wonderful stay at Water's Edge. The location is picturesque and secluded. The house is beautiful and very well equipped. Good use was made of the bikes to explore the surrounding area and the canoe was used for fishing. We brought our stand-up paddle boards and found the bay to be mostly calm and perfect for the boards. Mostly however, we enjoyed relaxing on the beach (very few bugs) or watching the world move slowly by from the porch, from where we saw 8-10 Porpoises while drinking coffee one morning. The resounding vote by the whole family was to return next year.

This was the most beautiful home and beach. Our family had the best vacation ever, we enjoyed every single second. We hardly ever saw another person, it was so peaceful and relaxing. It was heartbreaking to have to leave. Thank you Waters Edge !

Perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for one week in early August. The beach is much nicer than I had expected. Sand was just as good as the Atlantic Ocean and there were smallish waves. Best of all there was NOBODY else around. I saw a total of 7 other people all week near our beach. If you walk south on the beach you can go for miles without seeing anybody. Water was a comfortable temperature.

The house is as good as other reviewers have described--very well equipped. I'll just add that the outside shower actually has heated water, which is a delightful way to wash off the salt and sand, and the master bedroom is lavish--the best tempur-pedic mattress I've ever slept on and a shower with European-style jets on the sides and back.

As for Cape Charles restaurants, our favorites were Aqua and Brown Dog ice cream. The others we went to were all just mediocre, but these two establishments are first rate. We also did the Miss Jennifer fishing expedition and caught enough (mostly very small) fish for two meals. 1/2 mile up Pickett's Harbor drive is the best fruit and vegetable stand in the region (it provides produce for many of the area restaurants).

Conclusion: if you like a secluded beach and don't need a bunch of touristy stuff, this place is perfection.

2 weeks of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5
This property was exactly what we were looking for for our 2 wk family vacation for 5 adults and 3 children (ages 6,3,almost 2). Our goal was to have quality time together without the pressures of a busy jammed packed filled agenda and this was perfect. The highlight of the mornings was coffee out on the screened in porch- we spent a lot of time on the porch-reading, cards, cocktails! The listing description is accurate though until you take the turn to the house you don't really get the feel for how close to the water and how big the house from the pictures! We couldn't believe how private the location was. We had long walks on the beach/wonderful days on the beach ( the beach umbrellas and chairs were perfect for the 90+ weather), caught and cooked crabs, the sand bottom swimming was perfect and safe for the grandkids,used the canoe, had a bonfire on the beach, rode bikes to the vegetable farm, enjoyed the hot tub at night- great to watch stars and moon over the water, The bugs didn't even bother us much! The 2 big dining tables were great- one for our meal time and the other used for games, puzzles, crafts. The kitchen is well stocked for dishes, pans and spices. John was great to work with - responded promptly to any questions/issues. We loved the atmosphere of the Cape- not a tourist trap (crop farms and fishing villages).We had fun fixing the majority of meals in the nice kitchen (had a delicious Striped bass on grill from Nottingham's seafood market) but did have a nice meal at StingRays,son and daughter-in- law enjoyed a good lunch at Aqua and all had a fun last evening at the Shanty in Cape Charles. Ate a late lunch one day at The Great Machipongo Clam Shack- good food but took a long time to get the food. Found a wonderful bakery in Onancock (the Corner Bakery).and found nice crab themed souvenirs/gifts at the BlueCrab Bay company. We spent a day in Virginia Beach(some did a Rocket boat ride to see dolphins) which was fun but were happy to head back to our haven by late in the day! Found the Food Lion grocery store to have decent prices esp. after getting their store card. We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to get away from it all and we cannot say enough how this was probably our best vacation ever for relaxation and family time. Thanks to Waters Edge!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect. All th luxuries you need plus the perfect setting. The private beach was heavenly. We stayed at the house pretty much the whole week enjoying the water, the beach, the view. Gong to bed listening to the waves. It was the bes sleep we all had in years. This was the perfect vacation with ample relaxation. Truly one of those vacations you hate to see end. Worth every penny and hoping to do it again soon!
