Adorable home located in quiet and quaint Willis Wharf, VA. Wake up to pretty water views and hot coffee on the porch. Less than a mile to the nearest boat dock. Kayaking would be perfect on Parting Creek, with a channel heading out to the Atlantic Ocean and Barrier Islands. Pets are a loved presence in this comfortable home! Watch the watermen work on clam and oyster farming while salivating to eat them for your dinner. Cape Charles and Chincoteague are an easy drive. Sleeps 7+, perfect gathering place to create long lasting family memories.

Nice Quiet Quaint Getaway
I have stayed at many VRBO and HomeAway rentals and this one by far was one of the best. The owner (Amanda) is very responsive and easy to get a hold of. She provided a ton of information beforehand which made our stay even better. The house is located in the sleepy fishing town of Willis Wharf and everything you would want to do is within an hours drive or less. Highly recommend you visit Chincoteague Island, Kiptopeke State Beach, Cape Charles and Savage Neck Dunes/Beach. We enjoyed fishing off the pier in Cape Charles and the docks of Morleys Wharf. Dons Tackle Shop is the closest for all your fishing needs.
The house was fully stocked with everything you need (all you'd have to supply is some food and beverages and there's a grocery store nearby!) There was wifi, movies, books, games, laundry supplies, cookware, bug spray, travel toiletries, and even some food in the fridge, freezer and cupboards. The more you explored the house, the more you could tell the owner was very thoughtful in supplying all your vacation needs. The best thing for me was coffee was provided and the owner left all the ingredients for s'mores (what a special treat)! Oh and I loved all the Meyers soaps and lotions :)
The house is decorated like a cute beach bungalow. Even though we had to turn the AC up when we were away adventuring to ensure not to burn out the AC in the summers hottest days, it worked very well when we were there and cooled off quickly and we were very comfortable. The fire pit out back is great and there's also a kayak and paddle you can use. The back porch is awesome with a seating table for 4 and a swinging bench. You're also within walking distance to a restaurant that serves breakfast/brunch. And there are a lot of great restaurants right in Exmore.
I will be recommending this place to my friends and will hopefully be returning next year. It's a great place to unplug, unwind with the family and explore the VA Eastern Shore. A true vacation.
Thank you so much Michelle! I'd love to have you back any time and am so glad you enjoyed your stay!
The house was beautifully decorated and a wonderful place for a family retreat!
The house was spotless and there were so many thoughtful details. We enjoyed the movies and games and hanging on the beautiful porch and watching the water
Get away from it all
This is a great place to truly get away and enjoy some quiet downtime. The house is really lovely and has everything you need to feel at home. The town is very peaceful, with nice water views and a wonderful salty air breeze.
Cute cottage, lovely community
We will be back!
What a fabulous house!
My 3 weeks here could not have been better! The house is bright and spacious and I felt at home right away. It is centrally located to many great lunch spots, shopping and activities. Restaurants for wonderful dinners are also close by and Cape Charles is a short 20 minutes away. If you choose to spend a quiet evening at home, there is plenty of room to cook for family and friends or just enjoy a movie together. Amanda, the owner, responds to questions immediately and could not have been more accommodating. We cannot wait to return and enjoy more of the Eastern Shore!!
Home away from home
We had a great stay. Amanda has thought of everything! The kitchen was well equipped with spices , condiments, coffee etc. There were games, puzzles, books and a large selection of movies to just relax and enjoy. The back porch glider was a great place to enjoy the morning coffee and watch the sunrise. It's a quiet neighborhood a perfect place to unwind. We will definitely visit again!
Chincoteague and Cape Charles are the nearest public beaches. Talk to the owner about insider tips to beat the crowds and enjoy the beautiful Eastern Shore of Virginia!
