Hello and thank you for taking the time to look at our lovely beach house, Life's A Beach in Cape Charles. This amazing, family friendly beach town has had some great press lately (including HGTV).

Relax and get inspired at “Bay Muse”. This is a beautiful, all hardwood floor, fully updated, lots of natural light and very spacious house with access just a 5 minute stroll from the historic town and beaches of Cape Charles, Virginia. The beach is just at the end of the road.

The four bedroom property is situated on a very quiet, tree lined street yet the beach and other facilities such as shops, cafes and bars are just moments away.

The living area comprises of a large, sunny and airy open plan foyer, living room leading into the dining room. There is a 42inch Sony TV (cable) with DVD and CD player.

The spacious kitchen and adjoining back room features a washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, microwave, fridge with freezer, 4 hob electric stove with separate oven plus extractor fan. There is a dining table with set seating for 6 and 4 extra. Gas, Electricity and Water Bills are included. Kitchen is well stocked with all your needs.

There is a good sized fully tiled family bathroom.

All bedrooms have a closet as well as a chest of draws for extra storage. Bedding (linen) is included. House towels are included but please note that Beach Towels are NOT so please bring your own.

All windows have curtains and are double glazed for great heat and noise insulation. For your convenience, each room has individually controlled heat and air conditioning.

We hope you will agree that the house is tastefully decorated by taking advantage of the beautiful historic structure with the right amount of contemporary elements.


There is an extremely quiet and safe road to park any vehicles on free of charge.

This is a no smoking property but there is an ash tray outside at the front of the building. We also do not accept pets at this time.

Just around the corner from the property are public tennis courts and a nicely equipped and large playground for children.

Cape Charles town center is only 5 minutes walking distance away with shops, cafes and bars. There is also a world class golf course nearby and a very popular fishing and crabbing pier.

About Marlen

We've met many people with our experience over the years. They discover Cape Charles somewhat by accident and cannot believe such an amazing, safe, family friendly town exists within reach. We have been back every year... 7 years and counting ever since.

We made the absolute commitment last year by purchasing and we look forward to sharing our slice of paradise with you..!

Marlen purchased this house in 2013

Why Marlen chose Eastern Shore Virginia

The House: Best of both worlds... old world charm of a seemingly by-gone era in a freshly updated home.

Cape Charles: Best explanation I have heard other than just how charming, friendly and enjoyable this great town provides is 'you can do as little or as much as you want..'. Most importantly, the environment compels you to unwind and rejuvenate. Community is very friendly and there are minimal crowds even in peak season which means no stress.

What makes this house unique

Old world charm, low stress in an updated home. Come get inspired..!

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I spent a weekend at the Bay Muse for a wedding and had a wonderful time. The house was clean and as expected. There was plenty of space for us, we could walk to the breakfast spot in town, and enjoyed watching football on Saturday afternoon. Marlen was great in coordinating details! Will definitely return in the future.

Beautiful and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The house was fully equipped with every amenity, including clean linen. It was great to have a dishwasher at our disposal, as well as the washer and dryer. We especially liked having clean towels available for all of our housemates. WE ENJOYED THE CLOSE PROXIMITY TO THE BEACH. What an easy walk.

Terrific location, great home, relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

My family and I loved Cape Charles and this home. I'm not hard to please, but I'm hard to absolutely "wow", so that's why I'm giving four stars rather than five. Only minor inconveniences keep this home from being perfect. To be clear, though, these are very minor, the owners communicated with me often, and the stay went off without a hitch! Thanks guys!

Cape Charles is a hidden gem. Once discovered, you will keep coming back. The beach is not crowded and you can do as little or as much as you want. Great for couples and especially for families.
