Saint Michaels House Rental Photos and Description

Tidewater Vacations of St Michaels, MD is proud to manage this wonderful vacation home. Please call us directly to avoid new booking costs on this site. HGTV House hunters on Vacation has just featured the vacation home to be on their show! A striking balance between modernism and industrial styled architecture, Europa is a stunning example of how simple lines and minimal decoration create a breath taking effect. An ingenious partnership between renowned architect Suman Sorg and Associates and James van Sweden has given way to design brilliance with visual intrigue both inside and out!

The open floor plan, modern, eclectic interior design and separate guest accommodations make for a stylish getaway right on the Chesapeake Bay. With a delightful mixture of wood, leather, cloth, steel and glass, Europa is welcoming, not austere. The living room, and sitting area invite you to read a book while basking in the late afternoon sun. Then turn your gaze to the Chesapeake Bay and watch amazing sunsets each evening. The 20 ft ceilings, reaching to the sky give an indescribable feeling of spaciousness. The guest suite has a pullout couch in the den which means it can accommodate 6. See more details of the home after the amenities.Oh! And there is a hot tub too!

Europa on the Beach is just minutes by road or water from the historic towns of Easton, Oxford, Tilghman and Easton - where the arts are alive and well, theatre, museums, art galleries, antiques and festivals

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just a wow experience. What a wonderful clean and comfortable home. My wife and I had a relaxing weekend watching the bird life (eagles soaring above us and the ospreys arriving to nest off the beach), enjoyed the silence and privacy afforded to us surrounded by views of the water - from morning to night the color of the water changed with the lighting and the sunsets were unbelievable. Thank you for the opportunity to just relax and enjoy our weekend. We also wanted to let you know that we dined at Talbot 208 and it was excellent. We will be back in the Fall!

A very special place!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this property. Our family has stayed there for a week each of the past two summers. The architecture of the home and the landscaping on the property are fabulous not to mention the incredible view of the Bay. We enjoyed day trips to Georgetown and Annapolis, spent hours wandering through the shops in town and dining at the various restaurants, went fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding and bike riding. Its a great get away especially with the help of the staff at Tidewater Vacations!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts on your visit to Europa. We do hope that by sharing your approval on your experience at Europa that others might take the opportunity to have a great time too and think of booking the home. Europa has a new bedroom in the main house with a set of double bunks as well. Their new hot tub is complete and ready to use. A wonderful home, great vibe, well cared for and a pleasure for Tidewater Vacations to manage. We do hope this Summer brings you back again!

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this property in 2013 and 2014, both times to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We love the architecture and the design of the home. 2013 was our first time to St. Michaels and we fell in love with the town, as well.

It's a beautiful home and incredibly peaceful. It's hard not to fall in love with so much beauty and serenity all around you. And, St. Michaels has lots of shops, restaurants and areas of interest to visit.

The property manager, Angela, provided lots of insight and ideas about things to do and ways to enjoy St. Michaels while also being available if we needed to contact her.

We hope to visit again and would highly recommend it to others.

A world-class architectural home on the Chesapeake

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for several nights over New Years' weekend. It's an amazing place.

It's really quiet, tremendously private, and quite secluded. The wide-open views of the Chesapeake are really impressive. Each morning when we woke up, the home's huge windows revealed dramatic sunrises across the water and flocks of geese migrating overhead. The public spaces are huge, and we enjoyed relaxing in the home's great room. We're fans of modern architecture, and this home did not disappoint. It's quite unique.

This home is an amazing Chesapeake Bay retreat. We'd absolutely recommend it to anyone.

Loved, loved, loved our 3 weeks at Europa!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this unique home on the Chesapeake Bay. It’s a wonderful combination of contrasts—dramatic but intimate, modern yet comfy, sophisticated while surrounded by nature. Just walking down the path to the house among the tall grasses and flowers carried us miles away from the hustle and bustle of our every-day life. We spent hours in the pool, cooking with friends, eating al fresco, watching the sun set, kayaking in the cove, driving to St. Michaels for ice-cream, walking to Lowes Wharf for live music and a drink, picking up fresh baked goods at the Tilghman Island Country Store. We just loved every aspect of the house, the area, and Angela's help.

In fact, we loved the house so much that we recently bought it. Now we hope others will be able to enjoy our home as much as we loved it as renters last summer.

Other fun activities we have enjoyed when staying at Europa: taking a sunset sail on the Lady Patty (anchored just 5 minutes from the house), getting fresh local seafood at Big Al's in St. Michaels, having high-tea at the Inn at Perry Cabin, exploring the Maritime Museum, eating fresh steamed crabs at the Crab Claw, celebrating a special occasion at Theo's, satisfying our children's pizza craving's at Ava's and enjoying a delicious green bean and prosciutto salad ourselves ... and so much more.
