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)."

"This is our second time staying at the Cheriton. We really love it there. The fishing was great, we caught
lots of flounder and some croaker, whiting and blue fish. The house always has everything that we need.
The boat shed is especially great! We were able to clean and filet our fish that we caught and go ahead
and freeze them.
We are looking forward to our stay next year."

"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."

"We had a lovely vacation in Cape Charles and this home was perfect. Everything was just as expected based on the pictures and our conversations with the owners. The house was clean and spacious and the beds were comfortable. We were a family of six - parents, grandparents and 2 kids and we had plenty of room. We enjoyed many lovely meals around the large dining table. Some of those meals even featured crabs we caught in Kings Creek or fish we caught out in the bay. It was so nice to keep our boat at the dock. Coming in was tricky the first time, but Bill gave us great tips and it was easy with practice. We enjoyed playing foosball. The pool was great and it almost felt private since we rarely saw anyone else there.
When we first arrived and went into town for Clam Slam, I wasn't sure about Cape Charles. It just wasn't the "perfect" resort town that I thought I was looking for. Within a very short time, we were all in love with this imperfect, charming little town. I love that the coffee shop closes on a whim because the owner has somewhere to be. I love the same guy sits in front of the hardware store every day. I loved the blend of old and new and a unique local flavor.
I highly recommend Cape Charles for a very laid back vacation. This house felt like home as soon as we walked in. I highly recommend! Thanks Bill & Debbie."
