About the property

The Nor'wester goes by the week in summer for $1889.

SOUTHERN BREEZES, NOR'WESTER - The first word guests guests utter is "Wow!" How loud the "Wow" expresses how charming, spacious, and clean the house is. Cape Charles is a Victorian village, and this grand old four-level brick duplex epitomizes the character of the town. Built in 1923 for two families, that's the way SOUTHERN BREEZES remains today. The NOR'WESTER sleeps up to 8 (maximum 6 adults) and the Nor'easter sleeps up to 10 (max 8 adults). Each side is the same size; only the bed configuration differs. The NOR'WESTER includes a front porch, living room, dining room, eat-in kitchen and half bath on the first floor. An easy walk up the presentation staircase brings you to three bedrooms and a full bath. The full basement includes a laundry room with stall shower and sink on each side with four bicycles and crabbing gear, just a few steps down from the outside entrances.

The NOR'WESTER has 1 king bed, 1 queen bed, two twins (that can become a king), bunk beds downstairs for kids. The bunks are on the sleeping porch sun room for kids old enough to stay downstairs by themselves. (And they will be thrilled - there's even a TV!) The bedrooms also have ceiling fans and transoms over the doors. Bed selection ranges from firm to plush, with memory foam toppers and lots of pillows. SOUTHERN BREEZES offers premium quality blankets, pillows, and towels (including beach towels).

Enjoy Cracker Barrel rockers and wicker furniture on the divided front porch. Each room has a window AC (6 per side) so everybody can be happy at their own preferred temperature. Or, open the big windows and catch the breezes! Every room has cable TV/DVD plus online movies and music from Netflix, Pandora, Amazon, Hulu, and more. The living rooms have Angry Birds and Pac-Man games as well. Of course, we have high-speed WIFI Internet! We also have lots of books and magazines - plus the town library is a 5-minute walk away! The living has both a sofa and a love seat - ideal for watching movies on the flat panel TV. The formal dining room seats 8 and the kitchen seats 6. The Kitchen includes a double-door fridge with water and ice dispenser, dishwasher, disposal, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender, electric teapot, stainless steel pots and pans, dishes, silverware, TV, etc. There's a shower/bath on the second floor, another shower in the lower level laundry room, and a private hot shower outside (our favorite). The laundry room has full-size washer and dryer. We also provide the various soaps.

There are both gas and charcoal grills in each separate picnic area out back. NOR'WESTER has cruiser bicycles and shares more with Nor'Easter in the carport.

Arranging to stay at SOUTHERN BREEZES is easy. You'll receive a welcome letter with everything you need to know, including the lock box combination on the front door. When you leave, just return the key to the lock box - that's it. This house has it all: historic charm, perfect location to beach and town, and reasonable rates - all geared toward families looking for a relaxing, spacious, clean but not too fancy old homestead for gathering up to 6 adults (8 in Nor'Easter) per side plus their children and the family dog. Parents, this are is perfect for children! There's a huge park and playground just up the street. Bikes are the way to go! Cape Charles is also golf cart legal. If you rent a cart, you can keep it in the carport out back. There's a skateboard park, tennis court, basketball court (at Cape Charles Baptist Church), beach volleyball games every night in summer, fishing and crabbing. For a change of pace, take a day trip across the bridge to Virginia Beach, Busch Gardens, and Wiliamsburg. Or simply explore all that Eastern Shore has to offer.
