About Debbiie

My wife and I moved to the Eastern Shore about 20 years ago and live 20 mins away. We have come to love the juxtaposition of natural beauty and boating activities to be found on Onancock Creek. We maintain a vacation cottage on this property for our own use throughout the year. During the summer months, we love to boat into Onancock for dinner under the setting sun, and return under a sky full of stars. (Onancock Creek's channel is well-maintained and marked, for both daytime and nighttime traffic.)

Debbiie purchased this house in 2008

Why Debbiie chose Eastern Shore Virginia

This is a wonderful house in a fabulous location. It is only minutes, by boat or car, from historic, vibrant Onancock with its shops, restaurants, and historic attractions. The house has 180 degree water views, offering a front row seat to the daily activities on the Creek: from early morning birds as they feed in the sunrise, to watermen heading out to the Bay for the day, to recreational boaters enjoying watersports or fishing, to the parade of yachting vessels arriving to spend the night in Onancock, to the final swoop of the shorebirds as they feed in the setting sun. The house has a long sandy private beach with a shallow shelf, making it perfect for children and for launching kayaks, canoes, or the owner-provided sunfish. Untouched natural areas are only a short paddle away, offering wonderful bird-watching opportunities. There is also a private deep water boat basin and 150' of dock, and a private 1100' grass airstrip.

What makes this house unique

The house was completely rebuilt in 2009, with tropical hardwood walls and floors, granite countertops, and the finest amenities throughout. Use of two two-person kayaks and a Sunfish are included.

Serene and Calming bay front home

  • 5 of 5

An amazing property with views that will blow your mind! Every part of our rental was exceptional. The home was beautiful, well kept and very spacious. The wrap around porch let you enjoy the views and relax completely. You are greeted with a Zen garden which will prepare you for relaxing. The property was very large to partake in so many outdoor activities. The ammenities provided where excellent, kayaks, sail boats and a Private beach. The owners where so accommodating and understanding. Our party had some issues with slow payment, which was totally our fault and they where nothing but understanding. Finally the sunsets! Wow what can I say I have never seen sunsets like that. I highly recommend this rental from the home to the location to the awesome owners A+++ all the way.

Labor Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This home has views from every window and there are walls of windows on all sides. The sunsets over the water made everyone stop and take a breath. the home has the softest sheets and blankets I have ever experienced in a rental property. Pete and Debbie made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived with cold sodas in the refrigerate and a quick sailing lesson for my husband. I would recommend this home to friends and family.

Unbelievable property - and great owners too!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful waterfront house. We've rented many houses over the years and this was by far the nicest, highest quality, and cleanest house we've stayed in. And the owners were so nice and helpful. The views were amazing, it was so peaceful, and there were lots of activities (beach, volleyball, fishing, crabbing, foosball) to keep us busy. We would definitely recommend this house.

Fabulous family getaway6

  • 5 of 5

This is beautiful waterfront home on the Eastern Shore. This lovely home offers sweeping waterfront views, a private, sandy beach for our kids to play, kayaks, and plenty of privacy. The interior is beautiful, clean and spacious. The owners were attentive to all of our needs during our stay. We also enjoyed a few excursions to neighboring towns on the Eastern Shore. Hope to visit again soon!

Serenity now!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to relax!...or to find plenty to do and see. The owners greeted us and explained the features of the house and property (for pets, too 😉)

We immediately felt at home in their beautiful (and immaculate) house. Fresh fruit and preferred beverages were provided, and the kitchen was stocked with coffee ☕️ and spices. The soft breezes off the water(& the nice linens) made for restful nights. Outdoor sports were plentiful, but we spent much of our time on the deck watching the birds and activity on the creek. Foosball became our favorite indoor sport! We would definitely recommend this place to our friends and family. AND... there's an elevator!
