The Sunset is the cherry on top

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a restorative vacation, we highly recommend this restful water-front property in Machipango. We had a sublime week eating fresh crabs we caught right off the private dock, from where we also watched the sunset every evening or fished, or launched our kayaks to navigate the creek and beyond. Every time we went out to explore, we couldn't wait to get back home and enjoy this welcoming house and cook the deliciously fresh seafood and produce available in the area, in Barbara's well-equipped kitchen. Thank you. We will plan a return soon.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay at my home. Your plans changed at the last minute and that led you to a new discovery of our area and my home. The Virginia Eastern Shore is a quiet hidden gem and so close to busy metropolitan areas. It was also perfect for your kayaking. Thank you for taking good care of my home and please do come again.

very nice, incredibly quiet and relaxing location

  • 4 of 5

this is at least our second stay at this location- love the fresh crabs from the crab pots, the beautiful stars at night and only the sound of nature around you anytime of day or night. Very well stocked kitchen and nice comfortable beds and living area in a large clean home- really enjoyed using the bikes from the garage and the kayaks we rented

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Everything one could ask for in a vacation rental! Clean, spacious, convenient!

We have been vacationing on the Eastern Shore for some time now. We love what the Bay and Seaside have to offer, boating, fishing, crabbing, beach combing, the quaint towns, and all without the crowds! Pelican Point is the perfect station to launch your activities from. Just minutes from the main road, yet tucked away in a very peaceful, secluded area.There is plenty of room inside and outside of the house! We enjoyed breakfast in the large screened in porch, great way to start the day! We also made very good use of the pier, fishing and catching many crabs everyday! The private boat launch is less than five minutes away, and from there, only ten minutes to the bay! The owners have gone to great lengths to make this vacation home a place you'll want to come back to again, and again...we are already planning our next stay here!

beautiful holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this beautiful home that was clean, spacious, and fully equipped (except for no t.v.'s in the bedrooms)but it allowed us less time watching tv and more time enjoying family. The neighborhood is very peaceful and quiet. I will definitely be renting this home again and I recommend everyone to rent it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to send in a review. One correction, there is a TV in the great room and one bedroom, but not in the other three bedrooms. I am glad you enjoyed your Thanksgiving weekend. Please come again.
