Property description

Marina Sunset is situated on the upper level of a bayfront cottage. 'INCREDIBLE' best describes the sunset views of Monroe Bay from the front deck of this gorgeous vacation rental on the 'Point'. This beautifully decorated and fully equipped two-bedroom unit sleeps up to 5 and offers everything you could possibly need for an enjoyable vacation, from bicycles to a karaoke machine! Our guests have full use of the back porch, patio, yard and grill. Perfect for a solitary retreat or a relaxing time with family or friends.

Colonial Beach is only a 90-minute drive from DC or Richmond. You will not want to leave this lazy river town, bordered by the Potomac River and Monroe Bay, and where golf carts and boats are the main means of transportation! Enjoy our beautiful beaches and boardwalk, the town pier, museum, antique shops, town 'trolley', coffee shop and restaurants, boat charters, or just relax! Everything in town is accessible by walking, bicycle or golf cart (which you can rent in town)!

We would love to have you at Marina Sunset as our guests!

Car: Recommended

A trip to Colonial Beach is like stepping back in time to a simpler way of life! Enjoy the beautiful Potomac River beaches, collect shells and sea glass, go fishing, birdwatch, experience the sailboats coming in at sunset, shop the many antique shops and specialty stores, enjoy the waterfront restaurants, walk out on the town pier, stroll the boardwalk, visit our museum and ride the 25 cent trolley to get a historical tour of this lovely seaside town! Golf Carts in Colonial Beach are street legal, so you will enjoy seeing all various types passing along and beeping. Waving to everyone and saying 'hello' to strangers is not optional in Colonial Beach! Driving outside the town limits within 15 minutes drive, you will find Westmoreland Berry Farm, Westmoreland State Park, Monroe's Birthplace, Washington's Birthplace, Wineries and Golf, Just a little further, within an hours drive, is King's Dominion Theme Park, Fredericksburg sightseeing, and all that the beautiful Norther Neck has to offer!

About the owner: We are baby boomers with lots of energy and young at heart! Jim is a handyman and Glenda handles all the bookkeeping and management of the cottage. We love meeting new people and sharing our little piece of heaven, so this is just our cup of tea!

Why the Owner Chose Colonial Beach:
Colonial Beach is a hidden gem of the Northern Neck. We lived in Richmond, VA, and came upon this lazy little river town while exploring one weekend. We fell in love with the quaint step-back-in-time feeling, and the natural beauty of this town so rich in history. And the people...everyone waves hello! So we packed up an moved here, and we just love this way of life and especially sharing it with visitors! We live downstairs, and Marina Sunset is on the upper level!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
You will immediately fall in love with the amazing views of Monroe Bay from the living room and front deck of Marina Sunset! Whether day or night, you will experience the tranquility of the beautiful wildlife, sailboats, and magnificent sunsets Golf-cart community, trolley, great beaches, town events, sightseeing, bird watching, boating, artist guild, antiquing, great restaurants, very relaxing atmosphere are all here for you in Colonial Beach within walking or biking distance of the cottage!
