In June 2012, Cape Charles was named “One of the Best Little Beach Towns” by Southern Living Magazine. “Seahorse Retreat” is only about a block from that lauded Cape Charles town beach. This is definitely a charming haven for two or four and includes a beautifully decorated living room where seahorses abound, outfitted with very comfortable furniture and includes a dining room with seating for four. The bedroom offers a high-end king-sized mattress, soft sheets and fluffy down-type pillows. The living room offers a high-end queen-sized sleeper sofa, complete with luxurious linens. Sliding doors from both the living room and bedroom lead out to the spacious veranda. Full kitchen including dishwasher, built-in microwave and ceramic top stove. Enjoy a cup of morning joe out on the veranda with views of the Cape Charles harbor or walk a short block to the delightfully delicious Cape Charles Coffee House for breakfast or lunch.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for returning our security deposit promptly. We really enjoyed staying at the Seahorse, and it was great to be in town. Our grandchildren came over and they thought it was just the greatest thing ever to be up on the balcony and get such a good view of the July 4th parade. My husband and I appreciated the super comfy bed at the end of the day too. We will definitely be back, and are telling all our friends about your great little place in Cape Charles.

Great location

Enjoyed our stay on the Main Street of Cape Charles. Very Convenient location. The king-sized bed was very comfortable. Would stay there again.

Great Apartment in Cape Charles

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely apartment! Very clean, comfortable and well-equipped, it was so much more than we expected. It's very conveniently located - only 1 1/2 blocks to the beach and within easy walking distance of great restaurants and shops. It's decorated nicely and has everything you will need during your stay (right down to beach towels!). The little porch was pleasant for drinking coffee in the morning and surprisingly private since most people do not look up. And even though the Blue Heron Real Estate office is downstairs, the apartment is very quiet. Additionally, Brandi was easy to work with and very kind during a family emergency that affected our plans.

Cape Charles is such a unique place, it's very relaxed and slow-paced and quite different from the commercialized areas in Virginia Beach or along North Carolina's Outer Banks. The beach is great and very safe for even small children since the water is so shallow. We've been visiting Cape Charles for about 8 years but this was the first time we actually stayed in town and we loved it! We plan to return to Cape Charles soon and will not hesitate to stay at Seahorse Retreat again.
