About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 14)

St Patrick on the Chesapeake bay is a most beautiful home with distinctive european flair and a peaceful and private vacation destination. The beautiful 4500 square foot home is nestled amidst mature hollies, dogwoods, and pine trees, flowers and statuary, overlooking a pristine sandy beach. The property is situated on a high bluff at the mouth where the bay meets the Atlantic Ocean

The 1.5 acre manicured Mediterranean garden was artistically designed and created by the owners who moved to the shore in 1989 directly from Italy. The home is spacious and offers two large living rooms with views of the bay and enchanting garden.There are several places to contemplate nature.An amazing terrace jetting out over the high bluff is the most scenic spot to observe dolphins, sea birds and water men collecting their daily catch. The westerly views offer magical sunsets over the water. Close to a state park and the historic victorian bay front town of Cape Charles.

Meandering, mysterious paths are an invitation to follow the way to a heavenly hidden natural corner where one can truly relate with mother nature. A true oasis away from the hustle and bustle of every day life and yet so convenient to the many amenities the area offers.

The home itself is very spacious with large picture windows and cathedral ceilings. What makes this home unique and distinguished is the elegant European style noticeable in the furnishings and overall decor. As you enter the main front door you are welcomed into a very large open living room/foyer that features an imposing fireplace and French doors leading onto the picturesque deck that visually embraces the lush lawns and stunning Chesapeake Bay beyond. The outstanding green room is a feature worth highlighting as it offers a 500 sq. foot space also with fireplace and 3 absolutely charming bay windows each framing a different landscape view of the park-like garden.

From the back deck , a picturesque gold fish pond and waterfall is a soothing view to enjoy while outdoor grilling and dining. The master bedroom is furnished with museum- worthy last century Neapolitan custom made mahogany furniture and features a quaint sitting room bay window area to take in the spectacular view.

The bay front state park just a few minutes away offers numerous hiking trails, fishing pier and boat ramp. The historic Victorian bay side town of Cape Charles is 10 minutes away and offers shops, a variety of restaurants, a historic live theatre, signature gold courses, tennis and fitness center.

We enjoyed a fabulous weekend here with our relatives. Everything was wonderful! The beautiful gardens and the view over the bay were just amazing- even better than the pictures. There is so much personal detail and unique character around this property that it made us feel like we had traveled to a secluded seaside resort. The home was also very clean and well-equipped. There was something to do for every age in our group. During our stay, we spent time taking walks down the beach to Kiptopeke State Park, fishing, sitting on the beach, and watching dolphins, ships, and gorgeous sunsets from the cliff. The owner was very accommodating and quick to respond to any questions or concerns that we had. Thanks again for sharing your lovely home with us. We look forward to returning soon!

fantastic relaxing thanksgiving in a great house with ocean view and beach

  • 5 of 5

We spent with another family thanksgiving in this very homely location. The house is very cosy and we all loved to be so close on the beach. The sunsets were always very impressive. Everywhere in the house you can find Clelia’s - one of the landlords- painted picture. Great!

The kids (4) played a lot in the sand, used the little boat and were looking for shells, coral rests and other. It was good to be so close to the shore.

I can highly recommend the house and also the nice and friendly landlords, Louisa and her sister. Thank you, we will definitely come back. Gerda

Wonderful St. Patrick

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in Cape Charles and thanks to Sheila and Luisa the home we stayed in was perfect for our family gathering. The setting was beautiful on a quiet road with the Bay in the back drop. The home was spacious and perfect for our gathering for the weekend. I would recommend it to anyone traveling to the Cape Charles region!

Nice house, amazing views, quiet location!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a nice quiet location, really peaceful and relaxing. We had 10 people and found the house to be more than enough space that we weren't tripping over each other. The dining room table was huge and perfect for family meals, but the best part of the house was the private beach!

We had an issue with the water that was very quickly resolved. Luisa was great, made the whole process very smooth. Thank you for everything, and thank you for letting us use the paddle boat, the kids loved it, and it let us see the shore from a different point of view.

We hope to go back soon!

Car: recommended

The Eastern Shore of Virginia is surrounded by water. On the east by the Altantic Ocean and on the west by the Chesapeake bay. It is connected to the rest of Virginia by the famous 17 mile long Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.

Most people are attracted to the rural flavour and the slower pace and the friendly people. The nature is unspoiled and very scenic. The bay side is the perfect place for the many recreational activities such as boating, swimming, clamming and fishing. For the golf lover Cape Charles is home of two state of the aret signature golf courses- the Arnold Palmer and the Jack Nicklaus course.

Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Boating, Shelling, Wildlife Viewing, Health/Beauty Spa,
