Overview

Kent Island Estate Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms including Guest Apt, 6 Baths, Pool & Spa, Sandy Beach, 2.5 Acres

A truly unique and beautiful estate on the southwest tip of Kent Island, literally in the middle of Chesapeake Bay. Available as a summer rental for the first time in 2013, the guest reviews are worth reading. Amenities include 2.5 very private acres with 550 feet of private shoreline on two sides, a large sandy private beach and 2 stone jetties. Amazing wrap around Bay views go to the southern horizon, and for many miles from east through northwest. A six story light house is less than a mile offshore, marking the main ship channel to Baltimore, directly in front of the house.

The Point of It All was designed over 7 months then built over a year as a private resort for family and friends, with something for everyone. There are sweeping views of the Bay from all main rooms, 4 bedrooms and the guest apartment/game room.

Watch the ships go by or the kids in the pool from the 1st floor deck, two screen porches on the first floor, four balconies on the 2nd floor, or a chaise lounge by the pool. Stroll through large shade trees and wide expanses of lawn overlooking the Bay, or shoot baskets on your own basketball court. The kids will love the elevated play house and swing set.

Enjoy the beach, pool, water slide, heated spa with jets, basketball court, and dock. Read, tan and relax above the waves on three comfortable benches on the dock, or on chaise lounges by the pool, or just lay on the warm sand on the beach. Two stone jetties attract fish year round, so good fishing is within an easy cast -- and you can catch your own crabs from the dock.

During summer the prevailing breeze is from the south or southwest, sending cooler air from the Bay toward the house. The Bay side of the house faces southwest, toward the light house and ship channel, taking full advantage of the amazing views.

A stacked stone wood-burning FP, large flat screen TV, entertainment center and piano are in the living area of the Great Room. Three more gas FPs are in Bedroom 1 (Master), the Study, and Bedroom 6 (Guest Apartment/Game Room).

Bedroom 1 (Master) has a king. BRs 2,3,4 have Queens. BR 5 has two Single Bunks. BR 6 (Guest Apartment/Game Room) has a Queen pull-out Sofa plus a Double Bunk down with a Single Bunk up. All bedrooms and the Guest Apartment have flat screen TVs with digital HD cable.

There are 6 full baths. The Master Bath has a steam shower and large Bay view soaking tub with air jets.

Adjacent to the Bay front deck is a large pool, large heated spa with jets, diving board and water slide.

There is a large sandy beach and a dock with a boat lift, two jet ski lifts and davits -- so you can bring your boat and jet skis. An elevated Play House and swing set are attached to a huge maple tree. There is a large enclosed outdoor shower, gas grill, large heated & air-conditioned 2-car garage with large work bench, epoxy coated floor, lots of storage. In the northeast corner of the property you will find a basketball court.

HD cable TV, internet, WiFi and free telephone service within the USA are provided.

Maid service including new linens, lawn service, & pool service are provided weekly.

Located on a very private point at the southwest tip of Kent Island, it is only 15 minutes to shopping and restaurants. It is an honest 35 minutes by car to quaint and historic Annapolis, 1:15 to downtown Washington D.C., 1:00 to Baltimore's Inner Harbor, and less than an hour to quaint towns on the Eastern Shore including Easton, St. Michaels, Oxford and Chestertown.

This property cannot be used for weddings or wedding related functions, rehearsal dinners, brunches, showers etc., or for other types of parties, gatherings or events. Only the persons staying in the house may use the property. No pets and no smoking.

Please call 954-816-2346 if you have questions. We look forward to welcoming you to a very special vacation at 'The Point of It All'.

5 Star Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was fabulous! It was beautifully maintained and the listing photos accurately reflected it's appearance. We've been renting summer vacation homes for years up and down the East coast and I can honestly say this home is by far the best! I would definitely love to return next year. Thank you to the homeowner for renting to us.

The Point of it All has it all !!

  • 5 of 5

Just a spectacular vacation on a premier property. Our vacation group (4 small families) have rented numerous properties over the years, but "The Point of it All" is at the top of the list. Immediate concensus was that the VRBO pictures just do not capture the size and beautifully appointed house and surrounding property. Those VRBO sunset photos are not "retouched" !! Everyone enjoyed the area, quiet friendly neighborhood, the spectacular Chesapeake Bay, high quality amenities, kyacks, kids clubhouse, gameroom, etc. This place has it all: relaxation, exercise (biking, swimming, kyacks), spectacular views, and if you're lucky as we were, an exhilerating lightning storm over the Bay!!

Great waterfront getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Lots to love about this house and location. Incredible waterfront views from almost every room. House was immaculate and well-stocked. Quiet and remote location, but within an hour from DC, Annapolis, and Inner Harbor so lots of sight-seeing options. Owner was very attentive to any of our needs. Basketball court was icing on the cake. Highly recommend.

Wonderful home and getaway on Kent Island

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay at this lovely home at the tip of Kent Island, Maryland for the last week in August. The home is very well laid out -- plenty of space to find a quiet spot, well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, fabulous pool, large grassy area for outdoor games, and miles of shoreline to explore in the kayak or by bike. It was clean and had plenty of towels, games, TVs -- everything you could want for a getaway. Many places to explore in the area, but we really just enjoyed spending time relaxing and watching the amazing variety of birds on the water. It was easy to set up and check-in worked out well. We have nothing but the highest praise for our experience.

Great house and setting

  • 5 of 5

The house and grounds are every bit as nice as the photos. The setting on the water is super. The house and grounds were immaculate upon our arrival and the furnishings are of high quality. The pool and screened in eating porch were particular draws for our extended family. It was helpful to have a nearby neighbor to help with check in and questions throughout the week. The house is somewhat remote so trips to the grocery store or restaurants take 15 minutes or more. Since we had a number of small children we were happy to stay put and eat on the porch overlooking a sunset on the bay.

Why be stuck in heavy traffic for 3 hours or more trying to reach the Atlantic beaches?

Instead, you could be relaxing on your own private beach a point in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay. This truly is a paradise that offers something for everyone.

If you ever want to leave this beautiful place for lunch, dinner or for a day, The Point of It All is only :35 from City Dock in Annapolis, 1:15 from downtown Washington D.C., and 1:00 from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

From here it is easy to explore Maryland's scenic Eastern Shore including quaint colonial towns like Easton, St. Michaels, Oxford and Chestertown. Visit the Chesapeake Bay Museum in St. Michaels, take the Oxford-Bellevue Ferry to Oxford, go antiquing around Chestertown and Galena, or shop at the nearby Queenstown Premium Outlets for many famous brands. Golf at the nearby Blue Heron or Queenstown Harbor courses.

After arriving at this uniquely beautiful family resort, you will soon decompress.

Regardless of their initial plans, most of our guests decide to spend most of their time on the property. Please read the reviews for guests’ comments on this phenomenon.

Active things to do without driving anywhere include swimming, soaking in the heated spa, windsurfing, boating, kayaking, fishing, playing basketball on the private court or volleyball on the lawn. Walk, run or use our bikes to check out beautiful farms, forests and water views along Kent Island's South Trail and Cross Island Trail.

Fishing is available from shore because two stone jetties attract rockfish (striped bass), bluefish, perch, croakers, and red drum. Charter fishing boats are available in nearby marinas. You can bring your own boat or jet ski and store them on electric lifts on the dock.

Those looking for piece and quiet will find this home to offer plenty of places where you can relax, read, or work on a tan -- while an ever-changing parade of huge ships, sailboats and wildlife pass by. Blue herons, Ospreys and Bald Eagles and a variety of waterfowl nest nearby and visit this point.
