About Ashley

Hello! A little bit about us. We are in our late twenties and have a 3 year old son. We are true water lovers! We both love Real-Estate and own several houses! This was my husband's house before we got married. We lived there for a short period and then moved into another house we bought. This home brings such comfort and peace when you are there. It's a very quiet place and the view's are beautiful. My favorite was always the morning sunshine, that sparkled on the river. We enjoyed many boat ride's to nearby beaches and restaurant in the summer. Once, returning from dinner we would always end our evening, with a dip in the sparkling pool! This home is very well decorated and has a lot of charm! We have put a lot of hard work and thought into making this place, a vacation home you will always remember and enjoy! We tried to think of things we enjoy most when we stay on vacation. A few that came to mind were comfortable beds, nice sheets, lots of kitchen goods, clean and nicely decorated. We feel we have provided this to our guest! We hope you will enjoy your stay and return again!

Ashley purchased this house in 2006

awesome place

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. Crabbing, fishing, kayaking and swimming in the pool. There was always something for our kids to do. Easy day trips to York, Jamestown and Williamsburg. The house was very comfortable and well-maintained. Also lots of great restaurants nearby. Thank you for a wonderful vacation stay

Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at this house -- loved the pier, the crabs, the herons/egrets, the pool and the kayaks! The beds and linens were super comfy and I loved the jetted tub too! We took advantage of everything the area had to offer as well -- Williamsburg, Busch Gardens, Yorktown and Water Country. We thoroughly enjoyed Scoots Barbeque and The York River Oyster Company restaurant was soo nice -- we ate dinner right near the water and the food was fantastic. Our daughter left a very sentimental item in the home after we left and the owners promptly found it and mailed it to us for free, we can't say "thank you" enough!! Highly recommend!

Beautiful private getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from our 10 day vacation. We went to the D.C. area to visit family then the last 4 days we decided to rent a place near the beach. I found Fun in the Sun and read all the wonderful reviews and decided to go for it and we are so glad we did!! I have 4 kids ages 4, 7, 9, and 11 and just like other reviews with kids, my kids wanted to stay at the house to swim and fish and crab. I have to admit I was a bit concerned with how remote the area is but quickly realized everything was literally a few minutes away and the beach was 15 minutes. We honestly spent the majority of the time just relaxing at the house and only 1 day at the beach. Ashley has everything you need for an amazing vacation. The beds are super comfortable and the area is so peaceful and quiet. We had a great time and definitely plan to be back in the future. Thanks Ashley and family for sharing your beautiful home!!

Secluded but close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Seems contradictory, but it isn't. The home is in a quiet, remote area, but still within a 10-minute drive of "civilization". My wife, daughter, and I spent an enjoyable week here, as a jumping off point to Busch Gardens, Yorktown, and Williamsburg. The house itself is well-appointed with everything you might need to make yourself feel like you're in your own home.

Relaxing, secluded getaway

  • 5 of 5

Took my girlfriend here for her birthday weekend, along with her mother and my son. This place is awesome! Well appointed, great décor, and the beds are fantastic. Had no issues with anything. Spent a lot of time on the pier, but unfortunately the cold snap last week pushed the water temperature down too much for the fish to be in. Managed a few short crabs, but above all else, enjoyed the solitude. We'll be back when it's warmer!

Fun Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to stay near Williamsburg and it was great to be on the water! It was so peaceful to watch birds along the water and we even saw a pelican! Great views from the dining table! Our 6 yr old loved fishing off the dock and playing at the big yard. The house was clean and very cute! We accidentally soiled a pillow a little and I offered to pay for it but she declined! Then I left some clothes behind and she sent them back to me and paid the shipping fee and didn't take it out of the deposit! Super nice!! I also left behind a travel hair dryer and asked her to keep it at the house for future guests. (I wasn't feeling well and forgot so many items!) We wish we could come back after school gets out but it is already booked!!! We were looking at the calendar even before we left! We will be back!
