Recent Cape Charles reviews
This house has it all
"This house is the perfect vacation home. We've vacationed in Cape Charles for seven years and we've stayed here at least three of those vacations and we hope to stay again next year. The description is completely accurate. I used to pack tons of stuff to take on vacation but I finally learned that when we rent this house I don't need to bring much. There are tons of bikes (and they are all in good shape). They have everything you need to crab off the docks along the creek that runs behind the house (including pots big enough to cook them). We caught at least three dozen crabs over the week we were there this year. There are kayaks and tennis rackets. There are beach chairs, a beach cart, and inner tubes. Truly everything you need to have a great time. Some might be concerned that you have to drive to the beach but if you have kids, and unless you stay at a house right at the beach, you are probably going to have to drive to the beach wherever you stay in Cape Charles because of all of the stuff that kids require. The great thing is that the beach is never crowded. Even on the 4th of July we were able to find a parking space on the road that runs along the beach. The great thing about this house is that when you get tired of the beach, you can come back to the house and rest and then go to the pool in the late afternoon or evening. You can also have a bonfire in the fire pit (a favorite thing for us to do). The development is perfect for kids to ride their bikes too (very little traffic)."

"We went for a short visit with one other family and wished we could have stayed longer. This is a beautiful comfortable house - wonderful linens, furnishings and decor. Plus tons of extras - things to take to the beach, games if you stayed in, lots of kitchen items. The kids loved the bunk bed room. We definitely recommend this house!"

"Our whole family of 10 converged on this quaint town and historic home - and what else can we say exept that this home had everything we needed and far exceeded our expectations - many of the decorating touches made us think that the owner must be an employee of Rachel Ashley sooo shabby chic! We promise to be back!!"

"Rented Heron House for about a week with my wife, baby daughter and dog. It's about a 10 min. walk to the beach, which is beautiful by the way. Soft sand, clean and not crowded. The waves are pretty mild, so boogie boarding might a challenge. We didn't see many lifeguards and weren't hassled for having our dog on the beach after 9 am (no dogs between 9 am and 9 pm).
"Downtown" Cape Charles is basically one street with a coffee shop, ice cream place, pub, jewelry/home furnishing shops and realtors. That's about a 10-min walk from the house too. A little further away is The Shanty, a nice but informal seafood place with really good food. For a more formal/expensive meal there's the Oyster Farm in the other direction. In all, there isn't a whole lot in the neighborhood but what's there is good.
The house itself was clean, comfortable and well stocked with most of what you might need for a week other than food. Everything worked well (stove, A/C, washer/drier, wifi, clothes washer/drier, etc.) so no complaints there."
