Recent Cape Charles reviews
"My family spent the last two weeks at Gone to the Beach and had a fantastic time. During out stay we had a total of 6 adults, 2 children and a dog. The house comfortably suited all of our needs. The house was well stocked; the kitchen had everything we needed, there were plenty of towels, linens, toys for the kids, pack-n-plays, board games, movies, bikes, beach toys, etc. One of our favorite things was the outdoor shower as it was a great way to get the sand off the kids before bringing them inside. The beach was an easy golf cart ride away. We loved having access to the golf cart and my husband said it was the "coolest" golf cart on the beach. However, the thing that really set this rental apart from others that we have stayed at was the personal touch by the owners. Ashley has been great to work with from the very beginning, was quick to respond with questions, changes in our schedule and she even called to check on us during our stay to make sure we were comfortable. We will be back later this summer and look forward to staying here again. I would highly recommend this house for a great stay in Cape Charles."

"My family and I rented the Great Escape to the Cape Escape home for Thanksgiving, and it was the best experience we could have hoped for! The house was big enough for everyone to spread out, and cozy enough for all of us to be together on the main floor. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a delicious Thanksgiving dinner, and we had lots of restaurants to choose from in the area when we got tired of leftovers. The house was also immaculate; literally sparking clean from top to bottom. I've never rented a house so carefully cared for! Also, for any questions we had, management was readily available, even though it was a holiday weekend. We will definitely consider the Great Escape again -- maybe for the summer! Thanks for a memorable experience!"

"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."

"the worse part of a large family stay is that you tend to forget things. the Cheriton kitchen is so well equipped that you don't have to worry about bringing coffee filters or a wine opener - they have a great selection of coffee mugs, pots and all the things you might need for your stay! The place is neat and well-kept and the mattresses are very comfortable and of the newer generation."
