  • Relaxing weekend on the water

    "My husband, daughter, nephew, and I rented this house over the Memorial Day weekend, and we were more than pleased with this property. The house is beautifully maintained, and the listing photos fail to capture the openness and beautiful light. We especially enjoyed the 2 decks from which we could view the water as well as the night sky. We also made use of the sound system with the extensive jazz collection. The bedrooms are all well appointed and bright; the master bath is exceptional with its large jacuzzi tub with view of Assateague Channel. We rode bikes to the beach every day and picked up sandwiches at the Sea Star Cafe as well as at Woody's BBQ. Both places have excellent fare. Having such a well equipped kitchen, we decided to buy fresh shrimp at Gary Howard's Seafood and made our own Creole shrimp. Of course we stopped for ice cream at the Island Creamery! We have been going to Chincoteague for the past 25 years, and this property has been one of the favorites, both for its location and its welcoming atmosphere. The owners are very attentive and were kind enough to arrange for their housekeeper to mail us some clothing we had accidentally left behind. We will definitely return!"

  • First Rate!

    "Unplugged is a wonderful property on the beautiful island of Chincoteague. We spent Pony Penning Week there with our family of six adults and three children, ages ranging from 1 to 71 years old! We enjoyed the week in this wonderful house tremendously. The house has every amenity you need - bicycles, beach toys and chairs, crab pots and traps, and even a kayak - to make the most of your time outside. It also has plenty of games, puzzles, and comfy couches for napping and relaxing on Island time. The kitchen is easy to use and has every appliance we needed for fantastic family meals. (There's a wonderful produce place on Church Street, half a mile away, for fresh fruit and veggies. And His and Hers on Maddox sells live crabs and incredibly fresh seafood that satisfied even our incredible appetite for good seafood.) Even without the famous ponies, there is plenty to do and see. We couldn't fit it all in. The property is within walking distance to Main Street for strolls in and out of all the cute shops. It's within short biking distance (a couple of miles) from Chincoteague Wildlife Refuge Center and Assateague Islands where there are lovely trails to walk, hike, and bike and beautiful, uncrowded beaches (compared to the Jersey shore) to spend your days swimming, sunbathing, and kite flying. Plus the wildlife is amazing. My children, ages 7 and 10, had a wonderful time. They earned their junior park ranger badges and patches at the two National Park/Wildlife Refuge Centers, biked to their hearts' content, fished and crabbed for the first time (Jimmy at Captain Steve's Tackle Shop is super friendly and encouraging), and thoroughly enjoyed being unplugged. The owners, Greg and Susan, couldn't have been more friendly or more accommodating. They answered our many questions and gave first rate recommendations. The house is in fantastic shape - just right for a week along the Eastern shore."

  • Great place in Chincoteague

    "We spent a wonderful week on Chincoteague island in Debbie's apartment. It is certainly more spacious than it looks on the website. Very comfortable and with everything one needs! We will certainly return there!"

  • Wonderful, relaxing week

    "Our family had a wonderful experience. The house was beautiful, very clean, and had everything we could have asked for. It was exactly as pictured. A lovely location -- we even had a bald eagle perch in the tree next to the screened-in porch. We spent many leisurely hours on the porch, reading, eating and watching the birds. We really enjoyed the peace and beauty of the island (beach every afternoon, kayaking, birdwatching, ponies!) and hope to return next year."

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.
