Recent Chincoteague reviews

  • Beautiful house, amazing views, great location

    "This house is beautiful and is in a great location with fantastic views. The kitchen is really nice and updated and almost all the furniture is comfortable and nice too. We loved the dock and overall the house is great. BUT the kitchen has barely anything stocked, no steamer, cookie trays, stuff like that. There were rusty items in the kitchen as well, the coffee maker was in horrible shape too. The deck, which is fairly good size overlooking the amazing view HAS NO CHAIRS what good is having a deck WITH NO CHAIRS? We had to drag our beach chairs back and forth from our car to the deck! And the screened in porch is tiny and can barely fit 4 people and the door when opened blocks almost half the screened porch. The dock has absolutely no seating either so be aware if you want to go down by the dock and enjoy the view, you will be bringing a chair with you. A bunch of doors are old and annoying/hard to open and close. The washer didn't even fill up half way with water so you can't fill it too much when washing. Love island getaways and from all the great reviews it seemed great, I think the owners need to actually take a look at the house they own. Happily this didn't effect our vacation at all and had an awesome time as usual, but for my family who has been coming to chincoteague and renting houses for 15 years, this was disappointing."

  • Cute house at Trails End Campground

    "Trails End is an interesting place near Chincoteague, VA. This is a charmingly decorated small, good value unit. The owners are very responsive and nice and easy to work with. We made a last minute reservation and enjoyed our stay. Very reasonable price. Trails End is a trip, with a combo of post-Hippie and retired military types and rather facinating."

  • Another great stay at Island Bliss

    "This is our 3rd year of summer beach vacation in Chincoteague, and 2nd year of staying at Island Bliss. From our experience, we will ALWAYS stay at Island Bliss. Great location, great house with lots of room, great pool. It's always a pleasure to deal with the owner. We had 4 adults and 4 children (ages 5, 7, 9, and 17)....with plenty of room to spare :)"

  • Happy Surprises Everywhere

    "We were searching for a place to celebrate my 80th birthday with our 18 kids and grandkids, and EUREKA!, here it was! The reviews were great and the description of the property seemed perfect for our needs...something to keep everyone happy, from the kayaks and canoe to puzzles and games. The listing was completely accurate in every detail. We were glad to be able to make a quick trip a few months in advance to try to figure out the sleeping arrangements and have some idea as to what we might need to bring. Stephanie, who manages the property, was most generous with her time and very patient in answering our questions. As each family group arrived, the oohs and aahs were proof of the rightness of our choice. The house is truly beautiful, with a gorgeous water view, as advertised, from every room. The living space is so vast and with so many decks and balconies that we often wandered lost just hunting for the stairs, but that vastness made it possible for the family hermits to be alone when they wanted to be and for the groupies to group! It was possible, too, on the night of the big birthday dinner, to arrange the tables and chairs on one deck so we could feast and celebrate together. (If anyone wants to know, my best birthday present was a Jayson Werth Garden Gnome!!!) One of my concerns that was quickly laid to rest concerned what we might find in the kitchen. No worries...everything we needed for cooking was there. Both the owner and Stephanie were always available to quickly answer any questions we had. We managed to enjoy seafood every night...and often for lunch also. We ate at Zack's right down the road, the Crab Shack...best of all, Bill's Seafood Restaurant (!!!), bought fish and shrimp at Gary Howard's, a few short blocks away. Among the other activities our family enjoyed: renting "bikes for 4", miniature golf, Wallops Visitor Center, The Creamery, a scenic nature cruise ("Daisey's") whose wonderful captain graciously took us right in front of Eureka!, an historical tour of Chincoteague on the little shuttle bus, and exploring the house's large and varied library (definitely not the typical beach reads). I must not forget to mention the beach at Assateague. It does tend to be crowded, but we found the best time to go and have only a few fishermen as our companions was early morning around 7am. There are picnic tables and grills available and it's easy to stake out a space. Even better, come at 6am and watch the sun rise over the ocean."

Chincoteague Travel Tips

Summer Vacation at Chincoteague Vacation Rentals

Chincoteague is a beautiful resort island on Virginia's eastern shore. It is the gateway to the Assategue Island National Seashore and famous for its clam shoals and oyster beds. Fishing is a popular pastime and the area is also known for its abundance of migratory birds. Chincoteague vacation rentals are most popular in the summertime when you can enjoy the many fabulous beaches and variety of events and activities. It's a great place for a family vacation or a quiet romantic getaway where you can be as busy or idle as you like.

Things to do Near Chincoteague Vacation Homes

Make the most of your vacation at Chincoteague by enjoying the outdoors. The beaches are great for swimming, surfing or simply soaking up the sun. You can be part of the vibe at one of the crowded popular beaches, or you can visit one of the more remote stretches of sand and enjoy a more private beach picnic.

Follow the trails and enjoy a day out hiking or biking. Bikes can be hired from the shops on Maddox Avenue. You can pick up a map and do some independent exploring or you can join a guided tour and get the advantage of learning more about the island at the same time.

The wild Chincoteague Ponies are legendary. By visiting one of the riding centers, you can learn about their interesting history. If you enjoy horseback riding, you can go on a riding excursion on one of these beautiful horses.

The fishing village provides some interesting insight into Chincoteague's culture and history. You'll be charmed by its beauty and can enjoy hours browsing the stores for bargains and some keepsakes to take back home. The local artists are well known for their incredible paintings of the island's birdlife and wild horses. You can also find some excellent handmade crafts, printed t-shirts and some beautifully crafted duck decoys.

Boating is one of Chincoteague's favorite pastimes. On a summer's day when there is a bit of a breeze, you can see many colorful sails out on the water. Powerboats or sailing yachts can be chartered for a day or a few hours or you can hire a mooring for your own private boat for the duration of your stay.

Will you Enjoy a Stay at Chincoteague Vacation Homes?

Chincoteague is a great destination for people who like an active vacation where there is loads to see and do. At the same time, the serene beauty of the island also invites those looking for a quieter getaway. At the end of the day, your vacation could be a combination of both, with some exploring during the day time and relaxed and lazy afternoons sitting out on the deck reading a good book. Bird lovers and fishermen are particularly drawn to Chincoteague. You can spend hours watching the migratory birds frolic in the shallows through your binoculars. Fishermen can choose from shoreline fishing or rent a boat to try their hand at deep sea fishing. The inland waterways also provide some excellent fishing but make sure you familiarize yourself with the region's species, size and limit restrictions.

Staying in Chincoteague Condos

Many of the rental homes in Chincoteague reflect the island's charm. As a resort island, there are many condos and homes available to rent, especially in the popular summer season. A comfortable home that is tastefully furnished provides you with a lodging that feels like a home away from home. Most are equipped with all modern conveniences which mean that all you need to bring along are your grocery supplies and outdoor toys in order to enjoy a really great vacation. Chincoteague is the type of place where you'll want to stay for a little while and the affordability of staying in a vacation home allows you to do just that.
