A quiet, tranquil beach without the distractions of a boardwalk or vendors allows a family to have their own adventure without the crowds.

About John Murphy

We have been coming to Chincoteague since the 1960's and still enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the island and it's people. We especially appreciate the chance to see the next generations of our family share in our experiences.

As home owners we hope to provide a home away from home for all of our guests.

John Murphy purchased this townhome in 2001

Why John Murphy chose Eastern Shore Virginia

I enjoy the slow, quiet of Chincoteague island. You can step back from your busy everyday life and enjoy the people that mean the most to you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been coming to Chincoteague since before my oldest (6) was born. This is our second time in this unit (Bayside) and third in these townhomes.

We love it here! We feel like coming home.

The upgraded A/C to the back porch was nice because we made it the playroom.

My husband caught a record number of crabs off the dock this year, 14 over 5" in the first 24 hours. You can't beat homemade crab cakes!

We bring our kayaks every year. This is the first time we let my son (3) on them and first time mom agreed to go. I think that my dad's hope's of owning his own boat are dashed. But the rest of us had fun kayaking.

We had lovely weather, it only rained today, and had a relaxing time.

Thank you for the memories!

Sunset Dreams was a dream come true

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time at Sunset Dreams (the middle unit) this past week. The kids (all 6 of them!) loved fishing on the dock and catching crabs. We even had a seahorse on the crab trap! The sunset views were breathtaking and the location was excellent for biking down Main Street or running down to the marina for bait. Even the dog loved it! She was comfortable and loved the yard as well as laying on the porch in the sun. We highly recommend this unit for pet-friendly family vacationing! Thanks John!

The perfect Island getaway

  • 5 of 5

This really is a beautiful place to stay! Our first time on Chincoteague Island and definitely not our last; and we certainly hope to stay at Bayside again. A beautiful sunset every day from the living room, or from the dock which is a wonderful spot to sit and relax. The house had everything our family needed and a lovely day room for the morning sun with jigsaw puzzles and games. So close to the shops and restaurants on Main Street, and just 10 minutes drive to the wildlife refuge on Assateague, it was perfectly situated to take a morning brunch and spend the afternoon searching for the famous ponies! Clean and comfortable, and in enchanting surroundings, this place was just perfect.

First Time

  • 5 of 5

Our first family vacation could not have been better, but it was nothing compared to our stay here at Bayside. The awesome sunsets, everthing about Bayside and Chincoteague will will stay in our memories for a lifetime. We have already started planning our next vacation here next year. We loved the dock, fishing, crabbing and shortly after sunset we were able to see dolphins!!:)

Thank You:)

Enjoyed immensely

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed your home immensely! This is our first time here and hope to come back again. We have been coming to Chincoteague for over 20 years and always stayed in a hotel. We came down on a Saturday to look at a few. When we came to Bayside we knew it would be perfect for us. Very comfortable and convenient and beautiful sunsets from the deck. My husband enjoyed fishing from the pier. Your home is neat and clean and has eveerything you could possibly need.

Wonderful condo, AMAZING SUNSETS

  • 5 of 5

The owner has 2 units in the same building. We stayed in the end unit, Bayside. It was wonderful. 3 bedrooms, 2-1/2 baths. The unit included everything; the wifi was a nice touch. We loved the sunsets.

Unit was clean, well equipped - ncluding several bicycles and wifi - and everything worked!

The unit next two us was full with a large family. Even though that can be a concern in condos, we never heard them.

Owner was easy to work with and very responsive. He uses a rental agency on the island, so the rental was the best of both worlds: by owner, but through an agency that handles the payments and paperwork.

Owner's Response: We attempt to make ours guests as comfortable as possible and add those small extras that make a vacation an experience they won't forget. Our 2 side by side homes make large groups a breeze.
