Our family enjoyed a beautiful and comfortable vacation. The staff at ESV could not have been more helpful. Thanks.
The house is beautiful, new, and spacious. The view was amazing. The five children had plenty of room to run around, inside and out, and the private beach access was so convenient. We had a wonderful vacatiown thanks to Brandi and this wonderful vacation house!
Our family loved this modern, clean and spacious home! Floor plan worked perfectly for our three families and mother. Manager's guest books were quite helpful in locating dining and sightseeing options. Evenings offered a unique, spectacular sunset!
Just left this beautiful home and completely pristine and private beach! Brandi was so helpful at Blue Heron Realty with our booking and all my questions, and she made us completely comfortable. Spent all week on the beach with the family and honestly we only saw 2 other people the whole time. Great fishing! Great spot for little ones to swim where bay meets the ocean. House was comfy and cozy and just lovely. Hope to return!
Beautiful property. Brand new, first renters. Awesome views. Most beautiful sunsets. Well equipped house. One bedroom was missing curtains/blinds...hard for the couple in the house to dress...especially anyone was outside walking around/ may have been fixed. Beach was awesome, quiet and secluded. Loved fires/smores on the beach every night. Loved the kayaks- Some nights- too many mosquito's on the beach. Only lacks a pool, but not sure if this area of Cape Charles can have pools for the bay front properties. Only complaint is the toll coming in and out of the town. Made for a very expensive night when we drove to VA beach and back. Town pretty quiet. If you are looking for a quiet vacation with not much to do but relax, this place is for you!
