About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 adults/4 kids)

Southern Living is a home that is just that. Your biggest decision will be to have your coffee / drinks on the front porch swing, rocking chairs, or in the Adirondack chairs in the back. This home has been updated and ready for lovers of the Eastern Shore. Kid friendly with baby gates, LOTS of toys to keep the little ones busy, while the adults can enjoy themselves, not to mention a fenced in yard for safety!

Our front parlor offers 2 comfy chairs to sit and chat or to have some quiet reading time. Step into our beach style living room where you can even use the pocket doors for more privacy. Our fun dining room seats 12 with an additional table, along with our updated kitchen that offers a breakfast bar that seats 6. Through the laundry room you step out to a picnic table and lounging Adirondack chairs with a chained fenced back yard to keep the kids safe!

Take a walk upstairs to our four bedrooms. The fun kids double bunk bed room (2 twin beds sets-sleeps 4) also offers a DVD/VCR combo television. Our green room (Queen Bed sleeps 2) offers a calming charm. The Master Bedroom (Queen Bed Sleeps 2) offers ample space with the nice sea air coming through the windows. Our red guest room (Full Size Bed Sleeps 2) offers an eclectic beachy style of comfort. There are two full baths and an outdoor shower. The downstairs bath has a shower, while the upstairs bath has a quaint shower/claw foot tub for your relaxation. Soak in our claw foot tub after a long day at the beach, or enjoy the sea air in the outdoor shower.

203 Monroe Avenue is the quietest street in town. It is an island tree lined street where one end is the beach and the other end is the newly renovated Central Park which boasts a water fountain, playground and walking paths. We are on the 3rd block from the beach, and everything is within walking distance. Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses, open to the public, with pro-shop and 'Coach House' restaurant are a 2-3 minute drive. The marina with shops are located at the opposite end of town. The pier for fishing, getting a great breakfast at Rayfield's Pharmacy, Brown Dog Ice Cream, The Gull Hummock Wine Shop, , tasty fare at Kelly's Gingernut Pub, and the newly opened Shanty (seasonal) are all within walking distance making Cape Charles a hidden gem.

Very Convenient

  • 4 of 5

The house has a wonderful open floor plan where many people can gather. It is a very convenient location...close to downtown area as well as the beach. They provided bikes and beach chairs. It was a great house to share with other families. We really enjoyed our stay! Thank you!

Southern Charmer

  • 5 of 5

Those sunsets, though! Two mountain farmers were charmed by this house, this bay, this town. We felt immediately at home and relaxed - with absolutely no warm up period. The house is a classic craft style with all the warm, wooden and windowed character you'd expect and then some. The location was perfect - easy walk to the beach and town. It was amazing how quickly we found the rhythm of this place. We met Mary at the museum and were thrilled to learn of about her childhood and also the crater that hit at Cape Charles 25 million years ago like a thumbprint from space. We speak of this place in whispers - a secret between us. ;)

Great House

  • 5 of 5

My family re ted Southern Living for June 27-July 4, and were so so pleased with it. Close proximity to the beach and downtown meant that a lot of days, our car did not move. Beautifully appointed home, lots of extras for the beach, very clean, and such very nice to meet Jenn, who made us feel so welcome. Hope to rent it again.

What a GREAT house for our group!! Wonderful, relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from a wonderful final summer hurrah at this lovely bay home in Cape Charles. We had 3 families in our group, and this home's layout was just the right size for adults and kids alike. Everyone could spent time together, but no one felt on top of each other. The kitchen is well appointed with just about anything you could need. We were two blocks away from having toes in the sand, a short walk over to the shops on Mason St., and one block from the park. We all had a lot of fun playing games in the large front and back yards. The owners have done a superb job of stocking the house with toys, movies, linens, towels, etc., so you don't have to pack too much to bring with you. It is a perfect getaway house in a fabulous location, and we will be back!!

Wonderful Vacation and perfect for children!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Southern Living! We stayed from 7/13/2013-7/20/2013. We had 10 people in the house, 4 adults and 6 children and this house couldn't have bee more perfect for us. It is beautiful on the inside and outside and we loved the nautical theme throughout the home. It was only 2 blocks away from the beach and really close to everything else, including restaurants and all the cute little shops in the town. We chose to rent a golf cart from Eastern Shore custom carts and it made our week even better having that to get around. The home is stocked well with everything you could imagine for children, toys, bikes, beach toys, baby pools, board games, DVD's, books, ETC!! It was wonderful having the linen service stock the house with clean towels, sheets, extra blankets, etc. We all had a blast! We enjoyed going to the beach every day, relaxing on the porch while the children played outside, grilling together, also, the playground at the end of the street was wonderful, exceeded our expectations. This was all in all a great house and location, I could go on and on about Cape Charles. We can't wait to return next summer! = )
