  • What a GREAT house for our group!! Wonderful, relaxing stay!

    "Just got home from a wonderful final summer hurrah at this lovely bay home in Cape Charles. We had 3 families in our group, and this home's layout was just the right size for adults and kids alike. Everyone could spent time together, but no one felt on top of each other. The kitchen is well appointed with just about anything you could need. We were two blocks away from having toes in the sand, a short walk over to the shops on Mason St., and one block from the park. We all had a lot of fun playing games in the large front and back yards. The owners have done a superb job of stocking the house with toys, movies, linens, towels, etc., so you don't have to pack too much to bring with you. It is a perfect getaway house in a fabulous location, and we will be back!!"

  • Pony Swim Week

    "The Sandpiper House is a great place to stay for a family vacation. It is spacious and has everything you need. There are chairs, boogie boards, sand toys and umbrellas for your day at the beach. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is also a charcoal grill. The back deck is big has plenty of seating and is a nice place to sit in the mornings and listen to the crows. I sat on the front porch and watched my girls ride their bikes. McDonald's, Bike Depot, Museum, Assateague Wildlife Refuge, Family Dollar Store, Steve's Market and Pony Tails (candy store) within very easy walking distance. We also walked to the Crab Shack on Maddox for dinner. Master bedroom and bath have been recently renovated. The other two bedrooms worked great for our girls. They shared the twin room. The main bathroom has an updated sink and toilet but could use a sprucing up. Does have stairs to front door and side entrance which we used as our main entrance. Loved the outdoor shower. It looked brand new. Very quiet and friendly neighborhood. The Sandpiper House made a great home away from home. Would definitely stay hear again."

  • Cute and Comfortable Home

    "We were more than pleased with our stay in this home. Comfortable, quiet, lovely view and feels like it's away from it all but is just a short bike ride to downtown and 10 minute drive to the beach and many points of interest. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. The home was light-filled and casual and had a family-friendly layout. We loved dining on the screened porch. Wifi worked great, enjoyed browsing the book collection, and there were plenty of spare pillows and blankets. The dishwasher and clothes dryer were finicky but workable. We would be happy to stay here again."

  • Enjoyed our stay

    "at Sea Breeze. Everything was as promised, and the small touches--laundry soap, beach towels and chairs, crab traps, toiletries--made a short vacation with a large family feel very luxurious. Thanks, Debbie!"

Eastern Shore Travel Tips

Attractions and Activities at Virginia Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals

Virginia's eastern shore is a beautiful stretch of coastline on Chesapeake Bay that runs for 70 miles down to the Atlantic Ocean. There are several notable places of interest that are worth visiting. The NASA Wallops Flight Facility is a scientific research center for suborbital missions which is located on Chincoteague Island. Most of the operations involve aircraft research and the launching of sound rockets and scientific balloons. The center is open all year long and includes an exhibition hall, observation deck and video shows.

A well-known landmark near Chincoteague vacation rentals and the Chincoteague Wildlife Refuge is the Assateague Lighthouse. This impressive structure stands 142 feet tall and is 27 feet wide at its base. It was built in 1867 and is still an operational lighthouse today. The Chincoteague Wildlife Refuge is a great place for nature walks and bird watching. If you want to experience a place that is both remote and beautiful, visit Wreck Island.
