Property was beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

The view was gorgeous, the pictures simply do not do it justice. House was cute quaint and quiet, away from people. Had a great time!

House and dock were nice

  • 4 of 5

The house was equipped with everything we needed in terms of kitchen utensils and linens. The beds were comfortable and the central air conditioning worked great. The yard was big and had plenty of room for the kids to play. The dock was also really good, though it's a long walk out! The fishing off the dock was fun, we caught nothing big, but caught a lot of smaller fish. The crabs were also easy to catch. From the dock we saw lots of dolphins and rays as well.

The only negatives of this property are the shower and the beach. The shower had very little pressure, at times was dribbling out of the shower head. There was plenty of hot water though. The beach was a good size and had nice sand, but there was A LOT of sea weed. The neighboring beaches were kept up better, and the sea weed must have been periodically cleaned out so it wasn't completely covered wherever the water reached. Overall, this was a great choice for our vacation to Virginia.

Charming house, great setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The house is really cute, clean, and comfortable. The setting is quiet, beautiful, and relaxing. Spent a lot of time enjoying the view from the screened porch, balcony, and pier. Our kids had fun fishing, swimming, canoeing, and playing on the beach. Spent most of our time outside, but there were a fair amount of toys inside to keep the kids entertained as well. Some prior reviews commented on poor condition of pots/pans, but it appeared a new set had been purchased, as we found them to be in excellent condition. The house is an easy drive to all of the Williamsburg attractions (20-30 minutes). This house met our expectations and would definitely recommend as a good base for a Williamsburg vacation. Also, highly recommend Scoots BBQ which is nearby, so good we went there twice, and really friendly service.

Nice time to relax! Stayed 7/19/17-7/23/17

  • 3 of 5

Overall, we had a very nice time here. The "little" things were very much appreciated, like having coffee and filters available. The kitchen is stocked, even the occasional-use items like scissors could be found (and very much appreciated). We enjoyed the canoe and the dock very much. There are even toys for the Littles in the upstairs closet!!!

There were a couple of issues that we had. The dishwasher was broken. The only shower has very little water pressure and some plumbing problems. The plumber came out and said it would take some major work to get it "right" and that he would contact the owner; these things may be fixed by now. Also, you must haul all of your trash away (the dump is closed Sunday).

Be careful not to think there are two half-baths like the summary says - there's only 1.

We had a great time on the "Rivah" It was a very relaxing place to stay and close to everything we needed. We spent a lot of time on dock and the fishing was great.
