"We've stayed in many different places we've found on VRBO, heck we've OWNED a place we listed on VRBO, but this one was really special. The grounds themselves are what people say they are, they are like a park, or a Botanic Garden! I didn't know what Crepe Myrtles were before I got there, but I do now, and they are stunning! The HUGE pines are awesome, the entire grounds are incredible. The house itself is a step back into old Virginia, with books in the library a hundred years old! The dock was our "hang-out" spot, we had blue crab almost every night, the only time we didn't was when we didn't care to! The oysters, OMG, the oysters are RIGHT THERE in the mud, by the thousands!!! We ate them until we popped, and they were wonderful. The pool area is perfect...
But I have to say one of the features of the place the owner doesn't highlight is her Caretaker, who lives around the corner! I had a mishap with an oyster (4 stitches, actually!) and her Caretaker was there in less than 3 minutes with a complete "go bag" with everything needed to clean and treat the wound before I got to the Hospital to get stitched up. I'd add her as a major feature to this place, what price can you put on THAT when you're in a remote area?!
Do NOT miss the White Dog Bistro in Matthews when you go! WONDERFUL mid-1800's building and the food was sensational. Olivia's in Gloucester was very nice too!"

"We were in town for a wedding and it was such a nice, quiet, relaxing space to come back to in between all the wedding festivities. Everything looks like just like the pics and very clean. The only thing I would say be aware of is kind of steep stairs so don't pack any bag too heavy. Also for the town the restaurants and grocery stores closing times are not correct so if you are wanting to be out a little later be aware things may be closed. And if you are coming to town stop at the grocery store first. Also, a lot of places were closed on sunday including the coffee shop. But we had a wonderful stay and the place was just perfect."

"This was a wonderful vacation spot. The home was charming, well appointed and the location was just perfect. Our children were thrilled. Swimming, kayaking, shell collecting, and more. Excellent bird watching. Friendly folks and a relaxing atmosphere. The owners are more than accommodating and wonderful to work with. Thanks for a fantastic vacation!"
