About the Property

3 BR, 2.5 BA, bunk room, and many amenities all on right on the beach

Plan a Spring Getaway or your Summer Vacation now! BayWatch includes a private beach, spectacular water views and a fresh, casual decor! Just 10 minutes from Cape Charles.

This recently-built three level home has unparalleled views of the Chesapeake Bay. Windows stretch across the bay-side of the house so the view can be enjoyed in the living areas, master bedroom and second bedroom. There isn't a bad seat in the house! We have made an effort to provide every amenity in a well-appointed, comfortable setting. And you can't beat being only steps from a white sand beach!

1st Floor/Main level: 1 queen bedroom, full bath
2nd Floor: Master bedroom with king, bedroom with 2 twins, full bath
Ground Floor: 2 sets of bunk beds, half bath
Towels and 400 thread-count bed linens are provided at the beginning of your stay.

Bring toys! You can kayak, sail, fish, ride bikes, waterski, jet ski, tube, or visit the sandbar that stretches out a few hundred yards from the shore. Relax on the private stretch of beach where you won't see a soul.

If you have a boat, a community ramp in a tidal inlet is only 100 yards away. Or you can use the free, full-service, public boat ramp/marina in Cape Charles. Then drive your boat around to Smith Beach and tie up on one of our pilings. Lots to do or just relax!

There are many spots to enjoy the views, breezes and sunshine. Take a cooler and chair down to the beach and relax on the sand with the bay lapping at your feet. At sunset, sit on our aloha deck overhanging the bluff to take in the gorgeous colors as the sun retreats for another day. You can also lounge on the house-side deck while you put some shrimp on the grill from one of the local seafood markets. If you need a break from the sun or want to make the most of the cooling breezes, perch on the porch--morning, noon or night it's a lovely spot.

Beyond the beach, there are dunes to hike nearby, antiquing, kayak excursions, charter boats, fishing and more. There are also a number of dining options within 15 minutes: Mexican, Southern cooking, seafood, Pub fare, pizza, coffee house/cafe, Chinese carry-out and diners. You can also get seafood from the local seafood market, or prime meats from the local butcher and fix yourself a gourmet meal while you enjoy the views. For your convenience there is a Food Lion, Dollar Store, ABC liquor store and pharmacy nearby.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: After years of renting cottages on Smith Beach, we built his property 6 years ago. Smith Beach and the Eastern Shore is a very special place I have been coming to all my life. My husband and I began bringing our children when they were babies to splash in the warm shallow water and play in the sand. They have grown up coming every summer, bringing friends, enjoying the water, sun and local activities. It is now a family tradition and we hope that you will come and discover what we love so much about Smith Beach and the Eastern Shore of Virginia!

Why the Owner Chose Cape Charles, VA, USA:
Slightly elevated on a bluff, it has the best views on Smith Beach and catches the breeze off the water. With woods to the south and only two neighbors visible, it is extremely private, especially on the beach. Some days you won't see anyone!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There aren't many places where your have your own 100 feet of private beach that is safe and quiet for children of all ages, where you have a clean, comfortably furnished and affordable home, and where you face west and enjoy stunning sunsets almost nightly. This combined with the many local activities, seafood and charm of the Easter Shore, makes for a one-of-a-kind retreat any time of year.
