"What can I say, I loved this place from the moment we arrived, after a long journey from Scotland it was so good to arrive at this perfect destination, with 2 bottles of wine and beers in the fridge ,The Fish House at Grandview on the bay was perfect for our party of four, beautifully decorated and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The owners Karla and Dave were the perfect hosts,they made us feel so welcome from bringing us over fresh crab to try, to taking us out on the bay in their boat, and it was great to meet Fredo & Skink their two dogs.We made good use of the pool, kayaks,bikes putting green and barbecue. A highlight of the holiday was a night at Donks Theatre Matthews very own family run Lil ole Oprey, great night.
Matthews Town was a 10 minute drive away with a few restaurants,supermarket and some local shops. Our favourite restaurant was The White Dog with good food and great hospitality, here we met a local couple who kindly invited us to their house and took us out onto the bay in their boat for an unforgettable trip, this just shows the kindness of the people in Matthews. Williamsburg, York Town and James Town were well worth a visit, with excellent designer outlets at Williamsburg. We took a train to Washington DC for an overnight stay, again well worth the trip.
Thank you Karla and Dave for sharing your little piece of heaven with us and I hope to return some day to meet up once again."

"We chose this area because we had never been there and we traveled with elderly parents, so the house was a dream. Bill the owner was fantastic. We had car trouble on our way to Virginia and he directed us to a mechanic and did some chauffering for us. He also was available for other minor things we needed and directed to the seafood place. The layout of the house was very open. My dad uses a walker and was able to easily get around the house. Lots of space, there were five of us on this trip and we could all be in a different part of the house if we wanted to. Very comfortable beds and seating. We also were able to fish off the dock. My dad caught a small fish and was really excited, he hadn't fished in awhile. We took my mom to a winery and a small town about an hour away. We also got to see some historical areas. Washing tons birthplace and a couple of battle sights. Overall a great trip, many memories made. We would recommend this house and area for a peaceful, relaxing week. Thank you Bill"

"Our stay at the Crab shack was amazing. Everything was provided for us at the property. There were binders full of information and directions to local attractions, dining, groceries, Etc. Karla was fantastic, she showed us how to crab and then clean the crab that we caught on the pier right outside of our vacation home. The sunrise and sunsets over the bay were perfect. Also the view from the top deck at night was an explosion of stars. Everything was extremely easy from first contact till our last day."
