Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Convertible bed, Sleeps 12

Get away from it all on Henry's Island offering alluring privacy and breathtaking views on the Chesapeake Bay. Enjoy the 5 acre Bay-front home whose private sandy beach includes unique Northern Neck sand dunes. Swim, crab, fish or use provided canoe, kayak, or paddle board to explore the water. Relax on lounge chairs with a frosty drink (margarita machine included). Take in the Bay breeze while reading a book or sleeping on the beach. The open floor plan and 9 ft. ceilings provide a spectacular view to watch bald eagles, osprey and heron without leaving the beautifully furnished house. Dine inside overlooking the Bay or eat outside on the patio set after using the gas grill. Three king bedrooms (including two master suites), a bunk room and a separate play room make it comfortable and fun for adults and kids alike.

Something for Everyone: Tour one of historic Northern Neck's 19 museums, golf several excellent courses just minutes away including the award-winning King Carter Club (Golf Digest's 2006 best affordable public course in America) or sip Virginia's finest wines on the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail. Sail, shop or dine in award-winning restaurants nearby. An easy drive to historic Williamsburg, Busch Gardens and Water Country USA.

About Diane Boyle

We love the relaxed atmosphere of being right on the Chesapeake Bay where going to beach doesn't require leaving the property.

Diane Boyle purchased this house in 2009

Why Diane Boyle chose Virginia

Just a short distance from DC, this private location provides a soft sandy beach to relax. However relaxing doesn't mean boring. The historic Northern Neck of Virginia has award winning golf, hiking, biking, fishing, boating, history (birthplace of three US presidents), art, antiques, and vineyards.

What makes this house unique

The private beach and endless Bay views makes it perfect for relaxing and playing.

Wonderful Holiday Beach Getaway

  • 4 of 5

There were four adults and one child in our party, and the property provided a perfect base for visiting family over the Christmas holiday. The views of the Chesapeake Bay are spectacular. The kitchen is well stocked and allowed us to hold a small Christmas Eve gathering for family. Diane, the owner, was very responsive to any questions or issues. And lucky us…we saw a beautiful bald eagle in a nearby tree for over 20 minutes.

Total Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Ideal setting to get away from it all for a few days. Property was well maintained - Enjoyed the private beach as advertised. Only a short drive to get excellent oysters, crab rolls and shrimp!

Relaxing, private, and clean!

  • 4 of 5

My husband, our four children, and I had a very relaxing time in this home. Unfortunately, it rained (and was unusually chilly) all but one of the days we were there. If the fireplace had been connected, it would have made the cold weather a little less disappointing, so that was unfortunate, but overall, it was still a lovely time.

The owner was accommodating and very attentive/responsive to any questions we had. The kitchen/bathrooms/towels were well-stocked.

The home is very quiet and secluded, which was exactly what we were looking for. The waterfront is exclusive, which means you won't have people walking by your house while you're enjoying the view. The water is nice and shallow - perfect for little ones to play and splash. But be careful of the coral on the rocks out front - it is sharp! Two of our kids cut themselves by trying to climb on the rocks. Pool/water shoes are definitely recommended!

We look forward to visiting again when the weather is warmer and we can enjoy the beach more!

Owner's Response: We were disappointed the weather stayed cool for so long. Hopefully, next time will lend itself to more outdoor time.

Very unique beachfront home on the Bay

  • 5 of 5

Henry's Island is a very secluded and unusual location for the mostly developed Rivah/Bay area due to its privacy and beautiful sand beach. With uninterrupted views across the bay and the lovely turquoise water (due to the large sand bar in front of the house) one would be excused for thinking this house sits on a Caribbean island. The house is well appointed and great for family rentals with lots of space and all the amenities a renter needs. Highly recommended. Thanks!

Chilly Spring Break

  • 4 of 5

Nice waterfront property. The beach is very pretty. The house is a nice size, perhaps a bit dated and would be even better with some beach friendly colors. We had a few issues, but the owner was very responsive and accountable so that is a plus. The weather was quite chilly so we didn't get to swim much. There is not a lot to do outside of the beach if you are looking for dining or shopping options. We would like to check it out during the summer months as we love to swim and fish and crab and we didn't get to do that this time around due to the cold weather.

Owner's Response: Warmer weather does allow for more water activities, but the view is calming even in chilly weather especially if you get a glimpse of the sea and wild life. It is a place to get away from hectic activities, but limited shopping is available in Kilmarnock and Irvington. We continually seek input on how to improve our guests' experiences and appreciate the tip to add more color. However, our family has four boys so soft beach colors are unlikley.
