Recent Cape Charles property reviews

  • Sun, Sand, and Sea!

    "We stayed here with family and had such a good time. There were a total of six people, four adults and two teens. The condo was cozy, but there was more than enough room for everyone to stretch out and relax. The condo had all of the expected amenities, but the best part was the location. Proximity to the pool was a must for the younger people, and we were a hop and skip away from two award winning golf courses. We threw in a visit to a winery and a kayaking trip for clams. Perfect. Cape Charles and the local community were charming and full of great food and quaint shopping. We're going back just for clam strips and sweet potato biscuits!"

  • Family of 5

    "This is our fifth year vacationing in Smith Beach and our first staying at Conched Out. We loved it. It was homey and lived very spaciously. There was plenty of room for us and our three children. We were down there with two other groups in different houses and we all easily fit in the house for dinner. We loved having the huge gas grill to grill out. The owners Steve and Leighann were so wonderful to work with and so flexible. Steve was so helpful to our group when we were planning an outing to one of the Barrier Islands. He gave us advice and was super friendly when we saw him. I just loved the whole experience of staying at Conched Out. Smith Beach is such a special place for our family."

  • Luxury & Location

    "Luxury at its finest the hardwood floors just sparkled. Great light throughout the entire house. Great location to downtown and the beach, My family truly enjoyed our stay. We literally had to force ourselves to leave the house because it was so comfortable, beautiful and clean. Cape Charles is such a charming place. If you're looking for location, luxury and leisure time look no further."

  • Your own personal "peace" of earth!

    "If you like peace and quiet, love taking walks in the country, star gazing without light pollution and like getting away from the crowd, then this is the place to be. Rustic atmospher of times past is very enjoyable. The beds are very comfortable as well as the accompanying furnishings and creates an atmospher of family and fellowship for those who take advantage of such a wonderful place. This is a great place to take your dog(s) since there is plenty of room to walk/run em until you get tired. For those trailing a boat, there is plenty of room for a boat or two - parking is no problem. If you are a group of guys looking for a place to stay during the fishing season, this is definately the place to be!! The best part of the whole deal is the owner - Wilson. Although I didn't get a chance to personally meet him, he was very accomodating to work with and cares about his customers having a good experience. He will make every effort to make your stay pleasant and enjoyable. If you need fishing advice, he is the "Go to Guy". Overall, this isn't the Ritz, BUT, for the money, this is a very good deal!!! Wilson - Thanks for a wonderful stay John from Remington, VA"

Cape Charles Travel Tips

Cape Charles Vacation Rentals are Impressive

Enter Cape Charles from the awe-inspiring Chesapeake Bay Bridge and your vacation will only get better from there. When you choose to stay in Cape Charles vacation rentals, you will have spectacular views of this beautiful body of water. Many of the vacation homes in this area offer private decks for sunrise breakfasts. The VRBO homes offer the best value for your vacation dollars with artfully equipped kitchens, large living rooms and bedrooms for every member of your party. Whether you are interested in a cozy place for romantic getaway for two or a house large enough to accommodate a family reunion, you will have a myriad of choices.

Things to do and see Near Cape Charles Vacation Houses

Visitors to the area that enjoy late-Victorian or turn-of-the-century buildings can indulge this passion when staying in Cape Charles vacation houses. This area has a very large display of structures built between 1885 and 1920. The town has actually been listed as a Historic District in two places: the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places. Guests of Cape Charles homes can stop by the Cape Charles Museum and Welcome Center for more information on the town, its ferry service and railroads.

If you choose to stay at your vacation home in the summer, you and your family can enjoy the harbor parties that take place on the first Saturday of each month from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. Party the night away with a band, dancing, food, beer and the glorious sunset.

If you chose a Cape Charles house that is not directly on the water, you may want to visit the town’s sandy beachfront park. There is also the opportunity to spot birds or other bits of nature at Kiptopeke State Park. In the fall of the year, the park has a bird banding station and is a great area to see the migratory hawks.

Looking for a night away from your luxury home? If you want an entertaining evening, take an excursion on the Bay Creek Railway. Dine in a restored 1913 Interurban Dining Car for a two-hour trip or just take a fun trip for an hour. Should you decide to bring your personal boat to Cape Charles, you can dock her at Cape Charles Harbor. You can find a lovely vacation home within walking distance of the marinas and spend your days cruising the bay.

Golfing is another delightful pastime that is available to guests of VRBO rentals. There are two wonderful golf courses in the area that were designed by golf pros, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus.

Virginia Vacation Equals Shopping by Cape Charles Condos

Take a walk into downtown Cape Charles from your beautifully decorated Cape Charles condos for a unique shopping experience. Boutiques, art galleries and local restaurants offer delights for the eyes and palette. Wine is available from the local wineries so you can bring home some of the delicious libations as a reminder of your time in Cape Charles. There are stores that cater to bargain hunters such as the factory outlet stores. However, if you want something that is truly Virginia-inspired, look to the local craft shops that display artwork or crafts. Another great find that you could come across on your trip to Cape Charles are the many antique shops or flea markets that dot the highways along the country roads.

If you wish to indulge in a true regional meal, try the Virginia country ham and grits at many of the restaurants in Cape Charles. Many of the eating establishments will serve their meals family-style so that no one leaves hungry. If you have any leftovers, you can keep them cool in the refrigerator at your condo to enjoy on your private balcony or patio the next day. Whether you want a five-course meal or your favorite comfort food, you won’t be disappointed in Cape Charles.
