Our family of four with 2 boys ages 16 and 7, stayed here last week. The pictures shown in the listing represent the house very well. Pulling up to the house, the exterior is underwhelming, but once inside you feel something very different. The large, open, space is welcoming and inviting and what you want when on vacation. The home is decorated very comfortably and is equipped with all the comforts of home with plush towels and bedding. The modern kitchen has everything you would need to cook a fantastic meal. The deck on the back is the entire length of the house with 4 sets of glass doors. The upstairs open bunk loft plus bathroom for the kids has two sets of bunks, a pull out sofa, foose ball and TV with a wii. There are also a ton of great board games, pulzzles and books to choose from so no need to pack those.
Outside the front and back yards were large enough for the boys to have a baseball and football catch, which they did. The two kayaks were also lots of fun for us to paddle around the calm waters outside. Two adult life jackets are provided. My husband and sons fished off the dock while I sat by the shore reading. No one caught anything but it was fun trying!
Lots of great birds and water creatures were a part of every day. The calming breezes were absolutely fantastic. We didn't need the air conditioning until late afternoon.
The owner Cherie was very nice and helpful and literally three houses up the street in case anything went wrong, which it didn't. When we were checking out, she was interested in hearing what could be improved, since it's a new rental. What I told her was the dryer takes forever to dry clothes, which she's aware of and the bedrooms need dressers so people can unpack and settle in. The master has a dresser which was full of sheets that I moved to the linen closet. The 2nd queen has none, the upstairs bunk room has one 2-drawer dresser with wii games and drawers under the bunks that were filled with sheets. Very minor issues which my boys could care less about but someone else might. The only other things which I forgot to mention to Cherie are the large sofas out on the deck were not used. The cushions were wet/damp the whole visit. Also the dock is so splintery it could be dangerous and the dock ladder to come out of the water isn't secured very well.
With all that said, I would absolutely stay here again. Our vacation was relaxing and comfortable and Cherie was very easy to work with.
Quaint beach community in the heart of Historic Northern Neck Virginia. Just 90 minutes from Washington, DC or Richmond, VA! Enjoy exploring the local historic sites, basking in the sun on a local picturesque beach, picking fresh fruit from the berry farm, browsing the many antique stores and more!
