Great Family Beach getaway spot
Great Family Beach getaway spot
My family wanted a nice, quiet house on the water to relax for a week. This place was exactly that. The house was clean and nicely decorated and we loved the flow of the house. The house isn't overly big but because of how it is set up, it feels big and it was always easy to find a quiet place within to escape to if desired (we have 3 kids, so sometimes that is necessary). The location of the house is perfect - literally just steps to the beach and the comfortable back porch overlooks the bay. I personally loved getting up each morning and sitting out on the porch with my coffee and bible and thanking my creator for His blessings! Regarding the beach, it is perfect for kids. The bay is very shallow for quite a ways out so you can feel comfortable with your kids being in the water. The sand is also very nice and soft - there are very few rocks on the beach which I personally loved. The owner is very easy to deal with and responsive. My security deposit was returned within a few days of departure and the rental cost was very reasonable. I definately recommend this house to a family looking for a quiet beach getaway.

We spent our family vacation here, and it was perfect! The house was clean, comfortable - and best of all the beach was literally right off the back porch. The beach was clean, not crowded and the water calm & shallow, which is great for smaller kids. All of the appliances are brand new, including the Weber charcoal grill. The outdoor shower is a fabulous touch!! The main grocery store (Food Lion) is less than 10 minutes away (right off Rte. 13), and there is a smaller Mom & Pop type corner store on the main drag that's a little pricey, but works in a pinch - and is walking distance from the house. Cape Charles is a small town, and there wasn't a lot of dining/nightlife going on - there's a restaurant Kelly's that you can walk to, but honestly the food and service wasn't very good. There's a crab shack The Shanty that's right at the marina (short drive), and that was very good - super fresh seafood. There are a couple other restaurants in the area, but we prefered to cook at the house - taking full advantage of the view. The sunsets here are truly beautiful!! If you get the chance, try taking one of the sunset boat rides. You can also see dolphins swimming just past the breakwalls, in the early morning and just as the sun is setting - our kids thought that was the coolest thing! Overall, this is a great house, in a beautiful location! It was nice to spend a week of solid family time, playing in the sand and exploring the beach - without the everyday distractions of life. Thanks Neil, we hope to make a visit back!!
