Guestbook comments from the owner

A Marvelous Visit



We have really enjoyed vacations spent in Cape Charles, VA. The house is clean,

spacious, well equipped and well air conditioned. The beach which is very close

to the house is clean and shallow, it is perfect for young children. The area

is quiet and the neighborhood favorable. We recommend this destination

especially for young families.

great location!

  • 4 of 5
The house was great! A few older home issues (disclosed in the welcome book)- but perfect space for family of 6. Furnishings in bedrooms were great- nice, comfy. Layout of bathroom/laundry/ dishwasher room (all in 1 room off the kitchen) on 1st floor was a little awkward, but we made it work.
This house is a (very) short walk to the beach- and has great views of the bay in 2 (or 3?) of the bedrooms upstairs. Really great, convenient location.
There is only one door in/out of house. We did discover on day 2 that there is an apartment on the second floor of the house above where the kitchen/laundry/bath are located on 1st floor. The apartment has a separate entrance in back of the house. Tenant was friendly. We noticed the apartment from the outside - and realized the room with double twin beds has a locked door connecting to apartment. You can occasionally hear tenant and a few times we could smell cigarette smoke in the room with double twin beds. The apartment was a surprise to us (and not disclosed anywhere that we could find). It also seems odd to make the house pet/smoke free - when an apartment in the house has a pet and a smoker.
Surprise apartment aside, it was a really great house and met our needs. Charming, great value, close to the nearly empty beach, well-stocked with towels, kitchen items. Cape Charles is a lovely town!

Nice house by the beach

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here over the long weekend and had a very pleasant experience. The house is clean and in good shape. It is very close to the beach and the beach in Cape Charles is excellent. Calm, shallow waters very suitable for spending a full day by the sea and playing in the water. There are kayaks rental around the house as well and I really recommend renting one.

Close to beach w/ stinky tap water

  • 3 of 5
We found the place last minute before the long wknd to spend time close to VA beach. Had a bit of difficulty getting hold of the owner since we booked on VRBO the night before the check-in. After being on the phone with customer service for half hour (first were connected to wrong owner and second time to Howard) we managed to talk to the owner to get phone number, address, instruction, etc. He said he sent an email but we didn't receive anything, nothing in spam folder either.
The house is quite old and worn out, not renovated in last decades I would guess. It was reasonably clean and spacious though and the proximity to the beach and good price makes up for the shabbiness!
Being only 3 couples we had an extra room. First floor bath is behind the kitchen and is practically the laundry/pantry room with a toilet and shower which seemed to be the newest piece in the whole house.
The beach is very local, not too crowded and being on the bay side and not the Atlantic, is quite calm and relaxing. You can walk very far from the shore and still keep your head above water even if you are as petite as I am. I would guess this beach is perfect for children, safe and not too tiring. we were in the water on the second day for maybe 5 hrs which you can not do on the atlantic side beaches. The sand is good, there are algaes and stuff in the water for the first 20 ft off the shore. I rented a kayak from a nice kayak rental guy right at the beach. He delivered the kayak in 15 mins, so convenient!
So everything was going great at this house until we came back from the beach in dire need of a shower. Second floor bath tub was as rusty as the rest of the house which was ok, but the hot water smelled so awful I could not stay in the bathroom. The smell of rotten egg I suppose is from the sulfur in the water heater. This we found was the case in all sinks and the bath tub. Kitchen sink had the least smelly water but you could still smell it in the cold water used for tea. Fortunately we’d brought enough bottled water to avoid the tap water. We only were able to use the first floor bathroom the rest of the time which was not convenient for 6 people, plus it was far from bedrooms and awkwardly located behind the kitchen.
I don't mean to sound too fussy but the kitchenware were mostly greasy and unclean from previous use and needed serious scrubbing.
Overall the house is fair enough for the price and location but the stinky hot water is a deal breaker for me.

Owner's Response: I apologize for the water odor. The house had been vacant the week before and the water should have been treated to avoid the odor. The house has a new hot water tank but unfortunately if the water in Cape Charles is not used frequently the hot water develops a sulfur smell and requires treatment. Thank you for input regarding the kitchen supplies, I will discuss this the cleaning staff to make sure this doesn't happen again.

Three of the four bedrooms have had he furniture replaced in the last three years, and the downstairs dining room set is an antique.

Thank you for noting the value, versus the rental price. I am pleased you enjoyed Cape Charles and appreciate your input.

A dream come true for two families!

  • 5 of 5
In December my lifelong friend from the Navy and myself we needed to go on a joint family vacation. We decided on Cape Charles as it looked quiet. This vacation was one we had dreamed of! Plenty of room for the 4 adults AND 4 kids. Less than a 2 minute walk from the beach! Played in the water all day every day and even caught and cooked crabs! Sunsets every night can be viewed from the porch! They let us check in early, and called when we forgot something at the house! THANKS FOR CREATING MEMORIES FOR OUR TWO FAMILIES!!!
