Colonial Beach cottage 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!

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!
