Cape Charles house description

Completely renovated home in the heart of historic Cape Charles, a quiet town with friendly people and southern charm. This home is only a short walk from the beach which has nearly doubled in size due to a recent expansion project. Golfers can enjoy a round at Bay Creek Resort also located in Cape Charles which has Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus World Class PGA Signature Golf Courses and several fine restaurants for dining. Bay Creek also operates a marina that has shops and restaurants within walking distance from the house.

The master bedroom has queen bed and the other two bedrooms have twin beds with a trundle. There is also a full size sleep sofa in the living room. The kitchen is stocked with anything you'll need for cooking. Use the side porch for storing bicycles and beach chairs. Bring a book to read while you sit and rock in the rocking chair on the front porch.

                This is a wonderful place to come if you are looking to get away from everything. The home is well cared for, clean and comfortable. We stayed here with our 3 kids ages 12, 10 and 6. They were concerned that they would not have internet or cable but it turned out to be a blessing. We played games, watched old movies and spent quality time together as a family. The beach was great as well. The kids loved that they could walk really far out in the water and it never got too deep for them and they also enjoyed watching the large ships lining up to cross at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. They floated on rafts and made friends with other children on the beach. There is also a beautiful fishing pier for those that like to fish. The town is very quaint and they people that live here are VERY friendly offering tips on where to eat and things to do. Our favorite restaurants were Kelly's Gingernut Pub which is a converted bank and we were lucky enough to score the table on top of the vault overlooking the great band that was playing that evening and we also enjoyed eating at The Shanty which overlooks the bay and is great for seeing the sunset. Oh, and don't forget Brown Dog for ice cream!!! I will warn you that there is very little night life here so if that is what you are looking for then go somewhere else, but if you are looking to reconnect with friends and family while relaxing then you have come to the right place!!!

                Recommended for: Romantic getaway, girls getaway, families with teenagers, tourists without a car, families with young children.

                Manager response: We're delighted that you enjoyed your time at the beach house. We have always appreciated the calm waters of the Chesapeake Bay and the small beach which has allowed us to give our child a little more freedom to wander (always within view). We hope you'll come for a visit again soon!

                A perfect place to forget your worries and relax. Nice small town atmosphere and friendly towns folk. The house is modern, clean, and comfortable with a nice open floor plan. Walking distance to the bay and to downtown Cape Charles, where you will find restaurants and quaint shops. Perfect place to avoid the crowds. We had a wonderful time.

                House was very clean and in excellent shape inside. I thought it odd that a cleaning fee was charged yet we had to make the beds on arrival. It is equipped with a TV but it is not connected to any antennae, cable or sat. therefore it is basically useless except for viewing VHS tapes. It is located in a rundown area with abandoned houses next door and across the street.

                Recommended for: Families with young children, age 55+.

                Manager response: Hello and thank you for your feedback. I'm glad you found the house comfortable for your stay. Sorry for any confusion about the linens on the beds. We generally don't make them up in advance because we're never quite sure which rooms/beds our guests prefer. While we don't indicated that we have cable TV on the website, based on your feedback, I have added written comments to call that out to the attention of future guests (thank you!). Unfortunately, there are still homes in Cape Charles that are in a state of disrepair (the two you noted on our block). At one time in the not so distant past, our house was among them. I'm happy to say that every year, the number of houses in this condition gets smaller. Again, no excuse, but I do hope you return someday and if you do, that both of those houses are completely remodeled. Thank you again!

                We did not know what to expect of Cape Charles or the house we rented. If you are looking for a place to completely relax and be free of any and all time pressures, with plenty of opportunity to swim, kayak, fish, go crabbing, play great golf - should you choose to - Cape Charles is for you. If you are looking for amusement parks, big waves and crowds, choose a different destination. If Cape Charles sounds good, consider this rental: very nicely rehabbed, great layout (totally open floor plan downstairs!), just blocks (or a fun golf cart ride) away from the beach, restaurants, marina....This was the most enjoyable vacation we've had in years. Our 6 & 8 year old boys can't wait to return next year!

                Manager response: Glad you enjoyed your vacation, Theresa. We also love the quiet and relaxed pace of Cape Charles. Look forward to having you and the family back next year. Andrea

                Our family's visit to Cape Charles was wonderful. The house was just lovely. We enjoyed the stay, relaxed in the lovely setting and greatly appreciated the lovely home we spent our time in. The furnishings were perfect, the neighborhood was quiet and it was close to the bay. Great place to stay.

                Cape Charles is a sleepy, relaxed, southern town with many charming features.My children enjoyed kayaking in the wildlife preserve and learning about the local ecosystem. The locals were friendly, and the food was great!

                Highly reccommend this vacation home and Cape Charles in general. The house is exceptionally clean and quaint in a quiet neighborhood which is in walking distance of all amenities. Great restaurants and many things to do nearby! The renter made the experience easy and I would definitely return to this property!

                My family and I had a wonderful vacation in Cape Charles. The Eastern shore of Virgina is a beautiful place to come to relax and have fun. Cape Charles offers great beaches that are clean and beautiful. The people here are friendly and inviting. This house was charming and delightful. It is in a great neighborhood location just minutes from the beach and restaurants. I would highly recommend Cape Charles and this house to anyone. We can't wait to go back.

              Year Purchased: 2005

              Why Cape Charles:
              We love that Cape Charles is a such a very relaxing, peaceful, and friendly place. I fell in love with the historic town immediatley. The beach is very close to the house and we like the fact that the bay is a calm place for small children to swim (our daughter was 2 yrs old when we purchased the property). I felt I didn't have to worry so much for her safety so I was able to relax more on our visits.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We are within walking distance to the beach and restaurants. We have a charcoal grill for cookouts and an assortment of beach chairs.
