  • Perfection

    "We were in Onancock for our daughters wedding and rented this house for 10 days for our family. It was absoutely perfect..... very roomy, large bedrooms, wonderful screened in porch overlooking the water and beautifully decorated. We had so much fun and I wouldn't change a thing."

  • Wonderful, relaxing vacation at Southern Comfort!

    "Our first visit to Cape Charles was wonderful in Southern Comfort! The home was amazingly renovated with great attention paid to retaining the historic features while providing comfortable updates! The bedrooms were beautifully appointed, comfortable and charming. Having bikes provided by the homeowner was a nice surprise and greatly appreciated. The town is charming - we enjoyed two nights out for dinner, but the well-appointed kitchen enabled us to eat in as well. Thank you so much for allowing us to have a very relaxing, wonderful vacation in your beautiful home!"

  • 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!"

  • Serene Spot, Spacious Condo!

    "We stole away for a very last-minute road trip to Chincoteague and I'm so glad we found this spot! The owner was quick to respond to my morning inquiry and the reservation was finalized within 2 hours. By 3pm, we were on the road! We picked up the keys and the linens we rented and headed right over to the condo just as the sun was setting on the bay. The view as soon as you walk in the front door, is SPECTACULAR! The photos on the site definitely did not do it justice! The kitchen is huge and well-appointed and the open floorplan is great for a relaxing atmosphere. The TV/entertainment area could've been better organized and a little more beefed up (small table, wires showing, remote missing, etc) but since it was just the two of us, and we hardly spent any time in front of the tv, it wasn't a huge deal. We spent most of our time on the large wraparound deck. The weather was mild and we hung out with a bottle of wine almost every evening. Because it was the offseason, the condo units were mostly empty. We only saw about a dozen other people over 4 days of being there. It was nice- felt very private and we could enjoy the view with the blinds open. The master bedroom was large and also had an amazing view. There was one dresser, 2 nightstands and 2 large closets. Another dresser would've been a hit, as would a TV, but the bed was insanely comfortable and the sheets we rented thru the property manager were high thread count and very, very comfy... I could've spent a whole weekend napping in that bed! :) The master bathroom has an amazing stand up shower, jacuzzi tub, toilet and his & hers sink vanity. There was lots of space for both of us to move around and plenty of storage for unpacking toiletries. We didnt use the other 2 bedrooms but they were both large and had basic furniture included. That side of the condo also included a bathroom that we didnt use, but looked to be a typical 2nd bathroom. In regards to the area of Chincoteague, I thought the Villas were the perfect spot. You're in walking distance to all the restaurants/shops, there's a bike rental place just steps away from the parking lot and we biked everywhere we wanted to go- we hardly used the car. Overall, we were thrilled with our decision to rent this property and we're hoping to return again soon!"

Eastern Shore Travel Tips

Attractions and Activities at Virginia Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals

Virginia's eastern shore is a beautiful stretch of coastline on Chesapeake Bay that runs for 70 miles down to the Atlantic Ocean. There are several notable places of interest that are worth visiting. The NASA Wallops Flight Facility is a scientific research center for suborbital missions which is located on Chincoteague Island. Most of the operations involve aircraft research and the launching of sound rockets and scientific balloons. The center is open all year long and includes an exhibition hall, observation deck and video shows.

A well-known landmark near Chincoteague vacation rentals and the Chincoteague Wildlife Refuge is the Assateague Lighthouse. This impressive structure stands 142 feet tall and is 27 feet wide at its base. It was built in 1867 and is still an operational lighthouse today. The Chincoteague Wildlife Refuge is a great place for nature walks and bird watching. If you want to experience a place that is both remote and beautiful, visit Wreck Island. It is located on the far southern end of the chain of barrier islands and can only be accessed by boat. The nearest boat launch is seven miles west at the town of Oyster. On the island, you can see the visitors' center that has information about the island and a great wildlife-viewing deck. There are also nature trails that can be enjoyed. The Kiptopeke State Park is located three miles north of the Bay Bridge Tunnel. It offers birdwatching and wildlife viewing. The park also has camping grounds, a boat launch, recreational facilities and cabins. There are many small towns along the eastern shore that offer warm hospitality, great food and historic places of interest. One town well worth visiting is Parksley. The Railroad Square is surrounded by quaint shops and Victorian houses. Although the railway line no longer travels through town, you can still visit the restored railway station and the museum which has a collection of railroad memorabilia.
