Recent Chesapeake Bay reviews

  • Picturesque tranquility sums it up..

    "We stayed here as a group of 6 adults and 4 children(ages 3-13). "Let's go out and sit at the Veranda...." were some of the popular words spoken along with wanting to go to fish at the dock and swim at the pool. To give perspective on the zen like yet fun experience, I'll mention that we had planned to go to busch gardens for 2 days and kayaking at the nearby lake another day, but no one wanted to leave this amazing property(even the kids!), so we stayed put. The house is situated so the sun doesn't hit the back porch till later afternoon and the views and summer breezes were just perfect(wonderful porch seating too). We probably caught and released around 20 fish from the dock, couple of decent size surprisingly. We caught 6 crabs in the trap and there are oysters all over the place at low tide. The master rooms on the first floor of this charming house were huge, and the bedding was very comfortable. The property is quite large so people can stroll around and visit the beautiful foliage, a hammock, and swing chair etc, and there is plenty of flat space for lawn games(they had cornhole). We brought a boat for tubing (17.5ft) and the water was deep enough off the side of the dock to leave there even at low tide. We can't wait to come again!"

  • Exceptional property! Best of the Best!

    "Our family comes together once every 2 years for a family getaway, this year we chose this slice of heaven in Mathews, VA. My family has a broad range of interests, active lifestyles, swimmers, sun bathers, nature enthusiasts, foodies, and history buffs....all were more than pleased with the amenities that this property offered. Comfy beds, well appointed bathrooms, a great kitchen, SPACE, a great pool, and those phenomenal views of the River. The owner, Marcia, was a great communicator! She checked in via text or phone, almost clairvoyantly knowing when I might have a question. I have rented many a house listed here on VRBO....and this is the first time I was compelled to pen a review. If in doubt, I say pick this property. You will not regret your decision!"

  • Great vacation stay

    "The house was the perfect base for my daughter's wedding at Gloucester Point. We had family from Texas, Alabama and Pennsylvania who were all able to stay in comfort. The house is clean, roomy and has lots of amenities. We enjoyed the canoe several times. The kids had a great time exploring the house and looking for seashells on the beach. The only drawback was that the water in the bathrooms smelled like sulfur, especially in the master suite."

  • Great House and Cute Town

    "The house was very nice and big, even nicer than the pictures make it seem. We were in Urbanna for a wedding and the location of this house was perfect. Very close to the water and walking distance to the town. Check out Something Different. Great place to stay plenty of room and parking. Carport was great because it was raining when we got there. Beds very comfortable. We would stay here again!"
