Why Christine & Richard Williams chose Cape Charles

The town is charming ...older homes, sidewalks, a 'Main Street' in walking distance, and friendly people. It is quiet, with that small town feel. 'A step back into time'.The area is full of history, activities and exploration. Its close proximity to the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean provide different water experiences. There is a new, upscale marina with shops and a golf village in town. Cape Charles is a day's drive (just a little over 9 hrs.) from our home in Ohio. The Eastern shore is a beautiful area, some have described it similar to the Outer banks and Long Island as it was thiry years ago. The pace is calm and easy here. We have met many people who have been drawn to the area for the same reasons, with whom we have become friends, and look forward to seeing again.

                                                              Lovely and very comfortable home. We had an amazing time.

                                                              Excellent Location for Walking to Town or the Beach

                                                              The house was perfect for our vacation stay. It was a perfect size for my wife and I to share with another couple we vacationed with. The screened in front porch was perfect for enjoying the breeze coming off of the bay. It was blowing pretty strongly, but little to no rain as three of the days we spent in Cape Charles, we had the remnants of Hurricane/Tropical Storm Maria churning up the bay. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are nicely decorated. It is a five minute walk to the shops and eateries on and just off Mason Street. It completely met our needs and we would definitely recommend staying at this property.

                                                              Perfect Location!

                                                              This was our first time staying in Cape Charles and we absolutely loved it. We stayed at Bayview Beauty with our 2 children (ages 2 & 5) and a set of grandparents. The house was perfect for what we needed! The upstairs had a large master suite and 2 other bedrooms which connected through a door and was ideal with the young kids. Water pressure in the showers was great as was the hot water. Screened porch was wonderful to have and we sat out there many mornings and evenings!

                                                              This house is in an ideal location. We were a 30 second walk to the beach and a 2 minute walk to the wonderful park. The downtown area was only a 5 minute walk and has great shops and places to eat. Beach was perfect for the kids, water was warm and the sand was great for building sand castles. I cannot say enough great things about Cape Charles and Bayview Beauty and cannot wait to come back!

                                                              Great home with a short walk to the beach made for a wonderful vacation week!

                                                              This was my third time vacationing in Cape Charles and my second time staying at the beautiful Bayview Cottage. It is an easy walk to the beach as well as 4 blocks to the Central Park and 4 blocks to the main street for shopping. The house is roomy and comfortable with a nice sized kitchen, dining room, and living room downstairs. The 3 bedrooms upstairs were roomy and there was plenty of storage for your clothes. The screened porch is a wonderful place to relax after a day on the beach. The Williams are a lovely couple to communicate with and very attentive. They returned my deposit quickly. I'm looking forward to going back next summer for another week of R and R!

                                                              Great location, quaint house

                                                              Lovely old house, and porch, location to town and beach, great.

                                                              Lack of cooling downstairs, a problem. Had to borrow fans from friends who live in town. Also, lack of space to store food in kitchen.

                                                              Thank you for your review! We appreciate all of our travelers feedback and their time in posting a review. As part of our hospitality we call our travelers the day of their arrival to assure that their expectations are met and if they have any questions or concerns. I left a message on the phone number provided, and did not receive any communication regarding these two concerns you mentioned. Our ad states the house comfortably sleeps 6, reservation request was for 7 guests, which we approved for a family reunion in town. It also was extremely hot that week!! I have instructions in the house to keep the house comfortable on both levels. We haven't received concerns about these issues in the past.

                                                              Quaint and clean, just like Grandma's house!

                                                              5 of my "Sister" girlfriends and I stayed in this lovely home in January, 2017. This house has such charm! It reminded all of us of our grandmothers' homes. It is quaint, charming, warm, inviting and if those walls could talk...We are definitely going to return during warmer weather. It is located just steps from the beach. It is near some precious shops, where we ALL made purchases. It is also near restaurants that are EXCELLENT! The beds are comfortable and the water pressure in the upstairs shower is phenomenal! I highly recommend this charming home!
