Comfortabl but poorly equipped kitchen

  • 3 of 5

Nice location, cheerful interior, sweet front porch. But for people who like to cook, bring your own pots and pans, knives, and a can opener. Cookware looked like 1980's scratched up Teflon.

Flip Flop Inn

  • 5 of 5

Loved this cottage. Exactly as described. Perfect cozy cottage for a quiet, getaway weekend. We were attending a wedding at the Kings Creek Marina and it was within walking distance for us. Everything included as promised and ready when we arrived. Would book it again!!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay at the Flip Flop Inn, it was clean and had what we needed. I had twin two years olds, so had to pick up all the cute beachy decorations, but that is to be expected. Not close enough to walk to the beach,but a short bike ride if you bring your bikes. Jen was great at providing info about events going on that weekend too.

Perfect getaway cottage!

  • 4 of 5

My family of 4 just left the Flip Flop Inn. What a wonderful little trip we had. This cottage is so clean & impressively well-kept! (And I will admit to being hard to please in that department!) The space was perfect for our family. Good kitchen space for prepping and serving light meals and packing lunches for the beach visits. *The only downside to Flip Flop would be the quality of sheets available so you may want to pack your own.*. I suggest bringing bikes if you have kids old enough to manage that. We loved being able to bike to the shore and to the downtown area. Light traffic and patient drivers even with our youngest son who is fairly new to riding and a bit slow. Visit the newly renocated park/playground close to Flip Flop, Brown Dog for wonderful ice cream (we recommend the Orange Creamsicle Float!) & Deadrise Pies for a fun atmosphere and good pizza. Rent a paddle board or kayak from the nice folks downtown. Water was calm and perfect for some water play. Enjoy your visit! We will be back for sure!

Cute beach house with great location

  • 5 of 5

Great location - we were in Cape Charles for a wedding at the Oyster Farm at Kings Creek which just a short 2 min drive or walkable from the this cute beach house. He house was clean and perfectly as described. The only enhancements/suggestions would be to get a full length mirror and blow dryer (we didn't see one). Plus have someone adjust the fans as the bedroom one made clicking sounds. But overall these weren't a big deal Zander everything else was wonderful.

Also the beach is easily walkable (about 10mins) but parking isn't an issue at all so I would recommend just driving the short trip. Makes it more enjoyable especially not having to carry everything home after a beautiful day on the beach.

Great little beach house

  • 4 of 5

This rental was a perfect fit for our family of four. The owners provided everything that we possibly needed during our stay. Additionally, the home's amenities were everything we were looking for. The decorations were very nice, but not very fitting for a two year old who wanted to touch and play with everything!! I would suggest putting those sort of things up so they don't get broken (which is what we did). We were a tad disappointed that it wasn't closer to the beach (definitely not walking distance). And the AC took a while to cool down, which irritated the hubby. That being said, the town of Cape Charles was a fantastic vacation spot for our family. We were looking for someplace with a calm, laid back, feel with good restaurants and a great beach. Cape Charles checked off all of these boxes.
