VACATIONS WILL END, BUT THE MEMORIES LAST FOREVER
About Christi Medice
I am a retired Paramedic and Lieutenant Firefighter for the City of Hampton, VA. I live with my husband, Rick, and our two parrots, Joey and Nikko. I am an outdoors lover and love to fish. We have bon-fires often and just enjoy the evenings and the sound of the waves as they crash along the shore line while looking at the stars above us. We have a fish pond in the yard, but these fish are just for admiring. I love to get around to talk to my neighbors and make sure they are all doing ok. I try to exercise as much as I can by walking on the beach and kayaking. There is a garden in the yard that Rick and I tend to. I love to can the vegetables for the Winter. So I have been asked how I came up with the name "THELMA'S DAWN". Well, my mother passed away from cancer in 2007. Mom was 68 years old when she was called home. I had a sister, Dawn, who was called home at age 28. She was murdered in January1988. It was fitting to name this beautiful place after the two of them. I have lived in this home since I was born, except for the 25 years I moved to Hampton, Virginia, in 1985, to take a job as a professional firefighter and went to school to become an Emergency Rescue Diver and Nationally Registered Paramedic. I was diagnosed in 1995 with Multiple Sclerosis, but continued to work in the fire department as an instructor of various Fire, Emergency Medical, Driving, CPR and Water Safety courses. I retired from the fire department in 2006 and moved back to the Eastern Shore, which I have always called my home! Having MS, I can not enjoy things the way I use to. I love the beach and the water, but due to MS, I cannot stay in the heat long. With this being said, I have felt that this property was being wasted, so I made the decision to renovate a travel trailer that was going to waste and this is how Sandy Hill Sunsets came about! We wanted a tiny house and this made it easy to decide.
Christi Medice purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Christi Medice chose Exmore
This property is special in it's own right. There is a private beach and you can have bonfires on the beach and grill hot dogs, make Smore's, fish at night, put a tent up on the beach if you want and just have a great time just being you with no worries about anything. If you want to drink on the beach, you can. This is a secluded place where you will not have to worry about loud noises, except those created by nature. If you like serenity, you have surely picked the right place!
What makes this Cottage unique
You get to drive a golf cart any where you want to go, of course within reason. The fun part is......There is no charge!!!!!!

We had our honeymoon/family vacation at Sandy Hill Sunsets. The whole family had a great time at the beach. We also went to town and enjoyed some shopping and restaurants. My husband caught a stingray which we grilled and ate as well as the crabs caught fresh from the bay. Christi was a very attentive host. She provided all the fishing gear as well as a johnboat or kayak. She was there if we needed anything all we had to do was ask. They were like family we were visiting. I have 2 toddlers that loved to play and run at the beach without worry. Life jackets were available to use. She even had popsicles and bubbles. I plan to go back next year and would reccomend to anyone. Sandy hill sunsets is a safe, relaxing, family destination.
Even Better than the Sunset
This property was amazing. Christi, the host, took us in as though we were her family. We had a blast. The tiny house was cozy for our family of 4. We had plenty of space to relax at night. We had a private beach and enjoyed watching the sunset while having smores on the beach. Christi had everything we needed, and more. The house was clean and had all the supplies we needed for our trip. They provided everything from towels and soap to bait and fishing rods. This was a great place and we plan to come again soon!
Our 4th time here. Great stay as always
You couldn't ask for a better place to spend a vacation. There's lots to do ... or not to do. The beach is great, the view is great, and most of all Christi and Rick are the best hosts you could ask for. I will definitely return when I can and would encourage anyone to vacation at their place.
Thank you for these kind words! I am so glad you enjoyed yourself! I hope you will remember us in the future as we would love to have you come back! You were great and we really loved having you here!
A beautiful place.
We loved the scenery was wonderful the tiny house was great and the host was the best woman ever. We will definitely return family.
