About Shannon French

When I was 27 years old, I decided to sell real estate. Shortly after at the age of 29, I decided to open my own brokerage, Southern Trade Realty (Oct. 2006 so you do the math to see how old I am now)! I quickly learned to combine my passion for designing, creating and decorating to another level. I started to invest in real estate at a very young age, and I am still very passionate about it. I really enjoy getting to know my guests and proud to say I now have repeat buisness. I concentrate on making sure my guests are happy and I take pride in the comfort of my properties and of course, the decor has to be just right. Feel free to call me Shannon 804-815-1912.

Why Shannon French chose Tidewater & Hampton Roads

This area is where I personally grew up. I remember the days on the river at a very young age. I fished, crabbed, learned how to swim, relax, kayak, explore and I am still enjoying all of this today with my family and friends.

What makes this cottage unique

Pictures cannot even describe this property (many of our guests say this once they arrive). It is one of the most serene places to be. Listening to the waves crash up against the rocks at night, taking a nap in the hammock on a warm summer afternoon, to watching the Osprey on the river, there is not a better place to enjoy nature at it's best. It is all at your fingertips.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the pleasant and memorable stay. We love your cozy cottage. Our second stay is as good experience as the first one. See you next year. Happy New Year!

Fantastic House!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a fantastic week at Clearview. The interior of the house was just as beautiful as the pictures online. The sights and sounds of the water right outside the window were simply breathtaking. None of us wanted to leave. We had an awesome time hanging out on the screened in porch, kayaking, and fishing. The French family were great hosts and we would definitely return.

Our 2nd stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying at this cottage within 2 months. I certainly plan on a 3rd, 4th time etc. Such peaceful surroundings and just amazing to look out over the water day and night. The moon light, if lucky enough to be a full moon, is gorgeous.

Much needed peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 5 (3 teenagers) on spring break. We had a wonderful time visiting some of the historical sites in the area. It was always nice to come back to the peaceful cottage on the river in the evening. The cottage had everything that we needed. It was very comfortable for all of us. The sunrises and sunsets were beautiful over the water. We would definitely refer this to any of our family or friends.

Wonderfully peaceful place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights and I didn't want to leave. With all the open-ness of this cottage you could see a beautiful sunset and sunrise. Even at night the moon shining bright and off the water was amazing. I will definitely come back for another visit.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the nicest "home away" cottage I have rented. The cottage is absolutely beautiful. Everything was just as described....exceptionally clean and maintained. The view is beautiful and it was such a treat to hear the roosters crowing each morning! I definitely plan on coming back.

It's all about the view.

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage for a quite get away. Enjoyed the wonderful views. Nice screened in porch to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning. Peaceful surroundings make for a great setting. We enjoyed being able to grill and cook our meals.
