Such a nice week we spent at this home. We saw dolphins, rays, osprey and crabs. Convenient to Williamsburg/Yorktown area. Sitting on the dock taking in the fresh air was very refreshing. Getting a in person tour of the home by the owner was a nice touch.
Joy and David were wonderful to work with prior to our arrival and then at the time of our arrival. We have stayed in other homes through Home Away/VRBO and this was the only time an owner greeted us at our arrival and personally walked us through the property. We had a big group (7 of us) but everyone had enough space in the home on the river. Our smaller children enjoyed using the beach shovels and buckets provided while the older kids enjoyed the corn hole game. The property is very conveniently located to Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens which we visited several times during our stay. We would highly recommend staying here.
We had a wonderful stay at this lovely home. Well-appropriated kitchen. We spent much of our time on the pier, which is apparently undergoing renovation, but was perfectly lovely for our needs. The kids swam off the pier. Life jackets available for the younger swimmers.
We also made good use of the canoe and paddled out to see the osprey nests nearby.
I'm told there are frequent dolphin sightings at the end of the pier, but we did not have the good fortune to see any. Perhaps to too early in the season?
The home is quaint with quirks that come with an older home, like squeaks in the floorboards and Windows that stick a bit, but it all adds to it's appeal. Very well kept and quite clean!
Owners kind and helpful
Thank you so much for gracing us with such an amazing vacation rental. We came here to get away from too many 14 hour work days with a very much sense of needing recharged and we could not have asked for more. The dock was amazing to just sit and listen to the birds and the water it was so peaceful and calming. I do believe i fell asleep at one point. The first day was beautiful with a great trip to the river walk for lunch and a drive around historic Yorktown. And back to the house to finish the day in peace. I do not know what we liked more the screen porch or upper balcony but it all made for a great few days off so thank you again from both of us. I would recommend this rental to anyone for a great get away. Bravo!
This was an amazing beach house. I stayed with 6 other friends as a girls getaway. The view was breathtaking. The house was clean and decorated nicely. It was comfortable and had everything we needed. It's located in the middle of everything (Colonial Williamsburg, Bush Gardens, Water Country) without the crowd. There is so much to do for the family. The pictures and description shown is completely accurate. We called the owner with a question while we were there and he was more than happy to accommodate. It felt like home away from home. I will be booking this little gem this summer for a family getaway. I highly recommend this little off the beaten path vacation spot.
The place was just lovely, it had everything we needed cooking utensils a grill, canoe, fishing poles for those that couldn't bring them on a plane. The beach was wonderful had a wonderful bonfire, went canoeing something I never had done. I would recommend this place if you want to feel at home it was large enough for me and 6 other woman and even invited family and friends over very comfortable. Thank you so much to the owner
