Why Christine & Richard Williams chose Eastern Shore Virginia

The town is charming ...older homes, sidewalks, a 'Main Street' in walking distance, and friendly people. It is quiet, with that small town feel. 'A step back into time'.The area is full of history, activities and exploration. Its close proximity to the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean provide different water experiences. There is a new, upscale marina with shops and a golf village in town. Cape Charles is a day's drive (just a little over 9 hrs.) from our home in Ohio. The Eastern shore is a beautiful area, some have described it similar to the Outer banks and Long Island as it was thiry years ago. The pace is calm and easy here. We have met many people who have been drawn to the area for the same reasons, with whom we have become friends, and look forward to seeing again.

Beautiful, comfortable, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely house for a week in September, and thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and the house. We love Cape Charles, and this location can't be beat (super close to the beach, and easy walk into town). Most of our waking moments in the house were spent on the front porch, and we loved every minute (eating, chatting, games... it's perfect for everything!). Highly recommend, and we really hope to return next year!!

Great location, quaint house

  • 3 of 5

Lovely old house, and porch, location to town and beach, great.

Lack of cooling downstairs, a problem. Had to borrow fans from friends who live in town. Also, lack of space to store food in kitchen.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We appreciate all of our travelers feedback and their time in posting a review. As part of our hospitality we call our travelers the day of their arrival to assure that their expectations are met and if they have any questions or concerns. I left a message on the phone number provided, and did not receive any communication regarding these two concerns you mentioned. Our ad states the house comfortably sleeps 6, reservation request was for 7 guests, which we approved for a family reunion in town. It also was extremely hot that week!! I have instructions in the house to keep the house comfortable on both levels. We haven't received concerns about these issues in the past.

Quaint and clean, just like Grandma's house!

  • 5 of 5

5 of my "Sister" girlfriends and I stayed in this lovely home in January, 2017. This house has such charm! It reminded all of us of our grandmothers' homes. It is quaint, charming, warm, inviting and if those walls could talk...We are definitely going to return during warmer weather. It is located just steps from the beach. It is near some precious shops, where we ALL made purchases. It is also near restaurants that are EXCELLENT! The beds are comfortable and the water pressure in the upstairs shower is phenomenal! I highly recommend this charming home!

2 Adults, 3 kids, perfect beachside cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Don't look any further, just rent this house! This cottage has a ton of charm, and what a great location. The screened in porches were a welcome sanctuary from the evening skeeters. We rented a paddleboard from SouthEast Expeditions in town, and it was easy to carry that back and forth. Beach Volleyball every Tuesday and Thursdays. Great Crabbing on the pier with the kids. Eat at Shanty's! We were so close to the beach, we took our coffee out to drink it by the surf. The house is older, but it's clean and has charm. A/C was great, it must come from the attic, since it seems the upstairs is cooler than the downstairs. Our car was parked all week - we walked everywhere. Lastly, the security deposit came back promptly! Rent it, & enjoy.

stunning sunsets just steps away

  • 5 of 5

The sun has set on a wonderful week in Cape Charles at Bayview Beauty. We felt so at home there. The house was so lovingly furnished and decorated and supplied all that was needed for a peaceful and easy feeling week. Best of all, we were just steps away from the sand, the sea, and those amazing sunsets. We fell into a wonderful rhythm of morning and evening walks to the beach and town, deep, restful sleep (super comfy bed), and all the fluffy white towels we needed, and just the all around comfort of feeling very much at home. Missing it already. Thanks so much for sharing your beauty with us.
