Charming and Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

This was a first time stay at "Boxwood" and it was a wonderful stay. The house is an older home with charm that only an older home can have. It is spacious, clean, neat and welcoming. The owners (I got the opportunity to meet them) are such nice people, who are easy to contact and they love having a place where others can call home while they are there. I love the walkable town and the closeness of the beach and what it has to offer. The town is safe and friendly people abound. This home has everything you could want in a home, comfort, nicely equipped kitchen ( I cook all meals because of how I eat so the kitchen was great!), comfortable beds, and games, DVD's and a peaceful atmosphere. The yard is nice and there is a golf cart to rent if needed. By the way the owners had sodas, water, and snacks waiting for each arrival. That was awesome and not the norm, I think? I thank the owners for having a home so welcoming for renters!! I would certainly stay at "Boxwood" again and I would recommend it to my friends. There are restaurants in the walking distance area. Blessings!

Lots of space. Would like to return.

  • 4 of 5

The Boxwood is a beautiful home ,decorated to give it a homey appeal. We appreciated the cool drinks and snacks waiting for us.. Everything we needed for our stay was provided. With three generations there,we had plenty of room to meet all our needs.By that I mean a quiet place for Grandma and Grandad,wifi and tv for the youngsters. Close to the beach and dining places,everything was within walking distance. We were there during a very hot spell and the breaker to the living room tripped numerous times doing our week stay. The house had several window air conditioners, probably causing the problem. I do think this is being taken care of. On our first day there, police were called three times to the next door neighbors house.The noise was impossible not to hear. My grandchildren's bikes were stolen off the side porch one night. I feel bad mentioning these negative things, because the owner has no control over these things, but I have received many request for a review and so here it is. I would love to stay in this house again. It met more than our expectations.

Great time at the Boxwood!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Boxwood. The beds were great, loved the big porch, snacks very thoughtful. WE want to make this our annual family vacation spot. LOVED IT! P.S. Excellent customer service. Would highly recommend it. Listing description was exact. We enjoyed several restaurants in the area ex Shady Lane and Wilkerson's Oh yes and the ice cream (Nancy's) across the way wonderful way to end the day.

Great little town getaway

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at the Boxwood over the 4th and it was a very charming house that reflects genuine feel of history and simplicity back to a time where we felt a bond with family and unconcerned with our present world situations. I loved the originality of the house, from the ceiling light fixture to the loose stair rail to the the claw foot tub. The only distraction was the person next door using a weed eater to mow his lawn at 11:00 at night 😩򚐽򚘩 The only comfort complaint was the mattress on pull out couch, definitely needs to be replaced, other than that besides a few things that needed a general handyman touch, it was very cozy and its character adorable!

The house and property were incredibly comfortable and clean! The proximity to water was priceless!

  • 5 of 5

The Boxwood was a great house for a girls weekend getaway. Close to the water and very spacious rooms and layout of the house was superb. We enjoyed the back yard as well for some lazy afternoons and took advantage of the Boxwoods golf cart for strolls around Colonial Beach. Would highly recommend to anyone!
