Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

This property delivered all that was promised and more. Sunset views were amazing. We used the quality kayaks everyday. Caught and cooked crabs right off the dock. The pool needs some repair but we had no problem using it daily as a refreshing retreat. I admit I was concerning that we were asked for a large deposit so early and we had to pay extra for damage protection and linens but the home is obviously a treasure to the owner and once we arrived my concerns disappeared. We use vacation rentals every year and this one was by far our favorite.

Helpful Hints: Bring your own shampoos & soaps (not provided as they are in most rentals).

Bring spices for cooking. Although there were some, not what we normally use.

Bring coffee pods, pleased to find a Keurig along with a coffee pot.

If you are craft beer snobs like us, bring you own beer. Not much to find unless you drive all the way to Chincoteague.

If you want any specialty foods bring them; although Food Lion has the basics, its no Whole Foods.

If you rent the linens pool towels are provided and you can leave yours at home.

Bring along a teenager to figure it out the remote controls for the TV and Blu-ray player. No directions.

Go to Blarney Stone Pub in Onancock. Great meal.

time out

  • 4 of 5

We liked the property, I can see the owner put a lot of thought into getting it right. Steve was very responsive every time I reached out with questions.

I can sum up the vacation in 2 words: rest and eat :)

We caught crabs using the traps provided (word to the wise, catching is easy, eating is hard because you have to fight the crab for every piece of meat); we didn't have that much luck with the fish, but that's ok, we bought some from the store on 13th close to First St. There's a walmart and a food lion 15 min away. We did all our cooking and the house came equipped with everything we needed.

The beaches are about 1h away (Cape Charles to the South, Assateague Island to the North).

The only part we didn't like so much was driving our garbage 15 min away to the trash center.

"BREATHTAKING" DREAM HOUSE!! :))

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, absolutely amazing inside and out and had everything we needed and more. We liked how the house was tucked away in the pines. This gives the house a sense of privacy. The pool is just the right size, and there are porches and large decks everywhere. The yard was very large, landscaped, and well bulk-headed. The dock is commercially built and is out of this world! The moorings for our 17' boat were perfect. Crabs and fish were abundant in the river. Sunsets were beautiful and different every evening. Owners were awesome!

Our family had an amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house everything we needed. I love to cook so I always bring a good knife (most homes chef knives are terrible) but there were already a couple there. The place was very clean and organized too. We had 5 adults and 2 kids and had plenty of room. We had beach chairs think we would go to Va. beach, but we didnt bother b/c the pool and dock were amazing! We didnt have to go out to eat b/c we had PLENTY of crabs to eat. Great place, great vacation. Thanks!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Nice house exactly as described, with all the amenities. Very clean. We had a great time, caught lots of crabs, and kept our boat here at the dock. It was very easy to navigate even at low tide. Just an overall fun relaxing time and we already booked it for next year!

Wonderful relaxing week !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Showed up on rainy day,but the house had WOW factor that took the blahs away.

This was a beautiful house and was spotless, while being there we wanted for nothing.

The owners thought of everything needed for a relaxing week from the pool to the dock for boating and great crabbing every day.

Beach not far and plenty of antiquing near by.

House was very comfortable and made us feel right at home.

All in all one great week!!
