About Christine

I'm Christine and my husband is John. We have 3 children Nicholas, Brooke and Jamie. We moved to Virginia Beach from New York 17 years ago. John has been an Electrician since the age of 16, had a business in New York and started a new business in Virginia Beach. Eleven years ago he was asked to do an electrical job in Cape Charles for a new home that was being built. Once he laid his eyes on that fishing pier that was it! That night he came home it was all he could talk about. Two days later we took a ride over with our fishing poles and spent the whole day there. We did some fishing, had lunch, browsed through the shops, walked around, looked at all the old houses and said some day we will have a house here! And here we are eleven years later, our dream came true.

Christine purchased this house in 2014

Why Christine chose Eastern Shore Virginia

We looked at ALOT and I mean ALOT of homes for sale in Cape Charles. This one was one of the first that we looked at. We kept coming back to it but kept thinking there was something better like everyone does. But I'm so happy we choose this house. I love the fact that every bedroom has it own bathroom. The size of the bedrooms are very nice, so many houses had such small bedrooms. I like how open it is and the fact that it has a garage. Most homes here do not have a garage. After we put much sweat and hard work into it, it's just perfect for us!

What makes this house unique

We love the fact that this house is so close to the beach and just around the corner from the town it's just the perfect location. We did look at a few others that we liked but they were not as close to the beach or the town.

Great location and lovely house

  • 5 of 5

The location can't be beat! We walked to the beach multiple times a day (and perhaps to get ice cream that many times too...). The house was lovely-- clean with charming decorations. The bedroom suite on the ground floor was great for the grandparents. There were lots of entertainment options that were available: boardgames, puzzles, ping pong, etc. The one downside was that the beds were a bit squeaky.

Great House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house and our stay here. Christine was great to work with and provided a lot of good information and tips before our stay. Every bedroom has its own bathroom, which made mornings much easier to manage. The decor is very tastefully done, and everyone loved the lighthouse out front, which lights up at night! We would definitely stay here again.

Very nice home in adorable Cape Charles!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our multi-family weekend vacation. The bathrooms off each bedroom made it easy for all to be ready for our event on time! The house was charming and clean, and the welcome email from the host made everything easy!

This home is decorated in a classic beach style - every room lovely. Close to the beach and town it was the perfect stay for my family attending a wedding at Oyster Farms. We hope to return one day.

Tennis Courts are located in the center of town bordering the park on Madison Ave. If you love horses, you must visit Pfeiffer Riding Stables a 150-Acre waterfront farm just up the road. They offer one hour horse back riding tours for $40.00 Very well worth the trip!
