The Quarter Master at Cape Charles
average rating of 4.1875 based on 16 reviews

Nice house and fun trip!

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice time at the Quarter Master! It was a beautiful home with multiple spaces to hang out and relax. We had children and multiple families that shared the home. We had extra bathrooms for everyone. The kitchen was a perfect size to prepare meals. We wished we could use the fire pit in the back but we were visiting in a heat wave. The location was a short walk to the beach that was so nice and calming. We had fun playing volleyball, walking the pier, and using floats in the water. The local playground is also fun for the kids. Check out the state park free activities like owl watching and kayaking. Everyone enjoyed themselves.

Great property.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation here. I was worried about this property after seeing a recent bad review right before our vacation was supposed to start. I rented many cottages for a family reunion, and this one was very nice. The kitchen was well-stocked so that we could cook large family meals. The cottage was laid out nicely for family gatherings, and it was nicely located near restaurants and the beach.

Spacious family vacation home

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of room for multiple families/generations to spread out. Just blocks from the beach and only one block from shops. Yet, it was still a quiet get away spot. Owner has stocked the house with just about everything you could need from boogie boards to a blender.

Ignore any poor reviews. This is a great place for a large family

  • 4 of 5

What a nice house! I was concerned because we were going right after the person who posted a terrible review. Thankfully it was like a completely different house! The house was beautiful, spacious and well laid out. We had over a dozen staying (mostly kids!) and it never felt crowded. The house is not far from the beach and was great for us. We would definitely stay there again. As for the poor review, we had zero issues with plumbing (although we suspect the drain for the jetted tub might have a tiny leak), and the power outlets just needed the reset button pressed (they are GFCI safety outlets). The only reason I'm giving it four stars rather than five is because the owner chose to cover the walkways around the house with crushed oyster shells (not uncommon), but they have retained some slight smell of the sea. This in turn has attracted just enough flies that it was annoying to sit on the porch to eat breakfast. It was a small thing, but it kept the house from being perfect.

This was the worst vacation rental I have ever done. The house was the money pit plus. First propane stench that was brushed off by owner. Then the toilets over flowed twice. Two different plumers came and it was temporarily fixed. Each time it lasted about 2 days and then we couldn't flush, couldn't shower , couldn't do laundry. What fun. There were ants all over kitchen on the 3rd day. I bought ant traps and I held them off. The outlets in kitchen didn't all work making it difficult to use coffee pot and toaster. Then on the last night there was a leak in kitchen from the ceiling g. It smelled like it came from the bathroom upstairs. Then a bubble in kitchen ceiling also formed and scared us to death. We were so afraid what might come out. When I go on vacation I hope for no stress and just relaxing fun. We had none of that only one nightmare after the other. The first plumer left a huge whe on side of house guess what was all over the ground? Yeah it was terrible. One star is too much. I write this to help anyone who might be going after me. My advise don't.
