Sandy Harbor Cottage - Waterfront, Beach Access
average rating of 4.5 based on 4 reviews

Huge property in quiet rural location

  • 5 of 5

The other reviewers are right, the pictures do not do this property justice - the Cottage is huge, great bedrooms and a lovely open plan lounge dining, kitchen area. Very pleasant small residential neighbourhood (on the site of the Arlington Plantation). The Creek that the jetty sticks out onto is simply beautiful. Wifi connectivity easy and consistent, the kitchen has all you could wish for, a real home from home.

Some of the lounge furnishings could benefit from a make over it is a little tired, but the linens and cleanliness was first rate. Lots of info on local attractions. Only thought to bear in mind - this is in a real quiet location, so this is a true getaway property. Cape Charles is the nearest town, which is a quiet Lake Wobegon kind of place. Perfectly charming.

Exploring Cape Charles

  • 4 of 5

The house is clean, private and spacious. Very comfortable bed, which I often don't find in a vacation rental. The property manager was friendly and helpful, as were the neighbors with suggestions for local attractions to explore. From the living room, we enjoyed watching the hawks and eagles flying over the bay. Our visits to the Shanty for dinner and Kelly's Gingernut Pub for lunch were memorable.

First Rental of Season

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Sandy Harbor Cottage for a week at the end of April/first part of May. The cottage layout is as depicted although some of the furnishings have been replaced with equally suitable ones. We think this was the first rental of the 2014 season and the rental company didn't give it a careful review before we arrived; i.e., missing light bulbs, no internet, and no garage access. We contacted the leasing agent and they took care of all of the issues ASAP. The location is terrific, quiet, rural - away from the busy hub bub of the city. A wonderful place to spent a relaxing vacation. Since there were just the two of us, we had ample room and the king bed was comfortable. The yard and dock is an added plus. Beautiful sunsets from the dock. We would stay here again.

Absolutely loved this location. Great Family Vaca

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this justice. The house is bigger than it looks from the pictures and from the outside. Loved fishing off of the back pier. Loved having our own little beach to visit. Very close to Virginia Beach, nice day trip, but we spent a majority of our time at this lovely cottage. Neighbors are very friendly. House is very clean and well maintained. I am keeping this property in my favorites.
