About Bonnie Phipard

My Family visited Chincoteague many times when my sons were small boys. We have memories of flounder fishing, crabbing and swimming in the surf at Assateague. The Assateague ponies were a favorite.

There's magic about the Island, it stays with you and you want to come again and again!

A unique, peaceful, small town atmosphere with wildlife everywhere you look!

Overall it was a very relaxing week and we hope to return soon. Thanks Again.

Great location, view and beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in Captain's Quarters. The condo is spacious, a beautiful layout and lots of space for visiting with family or watching TV or a video. It also has a wonderful deck that overlooks the back bay; it is so relaxing watching the boats go back and forth and the wildlife. The master bedroom is awesome!!!! The view, layout.... everything.

Oh, I forgot to mention that you can easily walk to great restaurants and shops.

We loved it!!

Lovely condo, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a long Thanksgiving weekend here. Daily walks on the beach and nature trails of Assateague, awesome sunsets viewed through the sliding doors of the deck, quiet nights in comfort - what's not to like? And then we joined in the Chincoteague Christmas tree lighting ceremony - fun!

My only complaint is that the $60 fee for laundry is not stated clearly up front. The listing says that linens and towels are included - but doesn't say "for an additional fee." Unless I missed something? And you have to make your own bed! Maybe this is how it's done on Chincoteague - I haven't encountered it on any other VRBO rental...

Owner's Response: Hi Julie, Thank you for staying with us and so glad you had a fun time! Regarding the linens, i’m so sorry it was not clear on VRBO, but it is in our info, unless VRBO moved things around during their recent changes. They don’t have a place to put it as an option. Chincoteague is a very unique little place. There is no laundry service and finding good cleaners who will do the laundry is difficult. Many of the owners don’t even offer a linen option, but I do, as some guests fly in and rent a car. Enjoy your Holidays! Bonnie

First off, Bonnie is a great host and provided us with a very enjoyable rental. We had such a wonderful week and look forward to coming back later this year. The location of this home is just fantastic. The view each morning has you awake is just breath taking. The sunsets in the evening are picture perfect.

Totally relaxing mid-winter break

A wonderfully roomy and comfortable getaway. Enchanting views from the MBR, the living room, and balcony. Everything you need in the kitchen to cook up a feast. For relaxation, comfort, and breathtaking sunsets, this is the place to go.

Very comfortable, great accommodations and location!

  • 4 of 5

The property was wonderful - great location and lovely views. The only disappointing item was having to make the beds when getting in late after a long day of travel. Other than that - and that's pretty minor - it was very nice and if we come back to the area, we will definitely check if this unit is available! In terms of the town, it was definitely off-season so only a couple of places were open which made things to do very limited but we were looking for a relaxing trip which is what we got. I would just recommend Bonnie to update her tip sheet to reflect off-season as most of the recommendations were not available. Overall, loved our stay. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, Alex. So glad you had a restful weekend. The town does become rather sleepy in the off-season, but it's a great time to recharge your batteries! Had we known that you needed to have the beds made, we would have tried to accommodate your needs. Please come visit when it's a bit warmer and enjoy all the island has to offer! Kind regards, Bonnie
