Everything we needed (and more!) was provided. Beautiful house, all the amenities you could ask for. Great covered dock with plenty of fish to catch. Our gracious host greeted us and gave us lots of information about the house and area. Thanks David and Amy!!

Perfect Vacation Home for 2 Couples

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful, waterfront property made our vacation extra special. This home had everything two couples needed for a relaxing vacation getaway. The view was spectacular whether you were in the living room, on the deck, or down on the dock. My husband didn't catch any big fish but we were happy sitting under the covered dock in the shade. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking vessels and utensils although I confess we only cooked breakfasts and 1 dinner, the restaurants in Colonial Beach providing the rest of our meals -- we highly recommend Denson's Grocery for the freshest seafood ever!

Wonderful, Relaxing Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent an absolutely wonderful week at "A Shore Thing"! The house is adorable, views exceptional, amenities superb! I have never stayed at a vacation rental that had so many house amenities provided for us, paper products, soaps, shampoos, lotions, all kitchen appliances and nice pans(!), comfy beds, sheets and awesome towels - it was just a wonderful experience! We enjoyed hanging out on the dock, caught several fish, had a visit from a swan family, and watched fireworks for several nights. All in all a very relaxing and enjoyable experience, hope to come back in the fall or next spring. Views are just so beautiful. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!!

Relaxing and tranquil

  • 5 of 5

We often rent condos by the beach but decided to try a different setting this year. A Shore Thing popped up on our Homeaway search and was so appealing that we had to try it out.

What a marvelous home and setting. House is well decorated and stocked with everything a vacationer could want... i have refrigerator envy! The view out the window is serene and with the birds in the trees singing all day we felt like we were in paradise.

Many things to visit in the area. We found Washington's birthplace delightful and enjoyed a trip to Maryland over the big bridge.

We will certainly plan on another visit. Thank you David for your hospitality.
