Why Christine 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.

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.

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.

Could not ask for anything more

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend in Cape Charles to celebrate my mothers 60th birthday. This house made the weekend so enjoyable. It was perfectly located half a block from the bay, easy walk to all the shops and only a 5 min drive to bay creek golf. The front porch was perfect to relax on at the end of the day, ceiling fan made it especially nice. The small kitchen was packed with everything you would ever need. Very comfortable living space and spacious dinner table. There honestly was nothing else that this property could have had, it really made the weekend perfect.

Perfect beach house- location, size, screened porch!!!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing gem of a house. First, the location is so fantastic. You are a few blocks from the downtown main street. You are 2 houses from the beach. The section of the beach you enter is one of my favorites because it is directly to the left of the rocks so little ones can play in the tide pools while older kids and adults can play in the slightly larger small waves and paddle around in kayaks or rafts. The house has an amazing screened porch with a ceiling fan. If you've been to Cape Charles before then you know this is a very important feature. The black flies and mosquitoes are always hunting- day and night. So to have a porch with the gentle beach breeze and a ceiling fan truly extends the life of your vacation. The house is very charming. The interior is tastefully decorated with a casual coastal shabby/chic vibe. The house was spotless when we arrived and ready for our vacation to begin. The rooms also felt larger than the pictures do justice. It's a well made lovely home that feels so comfortable and sturdy. The dining room is large and fit our 5 adults and child perfectly. The living room had plenty of seating for everyone. And the front screened in porch also had plenty of seating so everyone could enjoy the evening together. The kitchen has every gadget you need to prepare meals. A great downstairs laundry room w/utility sink is very functional. And a lovely feature is a small screened in porch off of the kitchen. It's great to open this door to get a little extra ventilation when cooking. We had wonderful contact with the owner prior to and during our stay. We rented a golf cart during our trip to assist my folks and my aunt and my husband and I rented beach bike cruisers from SouthEast Expeditions. We also took a clamming kayak trip with SouthEast Expeditions- I can't rave enough about this outfitter- very good value for the experience!

We are honestly already planning our next trip as we can't imagine staying anywhere else.

Thank you for fantastic memories!
