About Juli

I am a mom & school teacher with 4 children. We love Colonial Beach. We kayak, fish, swim, and relax.

Juli purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Juli chose Chesapeake Bay

We enjoy the relaxing time we have at Colonial Beach. The Bikini Bottom has everything we need so it is a fuss free vacation every time we visit.

Beautiful and relaxing Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This a gem of a cottage. It has a great view of the river from the coverd back porch. The city it is located in is lovely and the people are friendly. This cottage have all the amenities you could need, comfy chairs inside and out, two cover porches grill out back, Wi-Fi internet, it is fully stocked. I highly recommend staying here for a week or longer or even a shorter getaway.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great time. I love that view too. It's fun to have a crab feast back there or just chill by the fire pit. I hope you consider the Bikini Bottom for future vacations or get aways.

A beautiful cottage in a beautiful little beach town.

  • 5 of 5

Colonial Beach Va is a step back in time. Laid back, low key, low cost location with a nice modernized cottage and a magnificent view of the Potomac River.

What was a cool factor is one of the main ways of getting around is by golf cart, so we rented one. They were all over the place. The cottage was on a quiet residential street and a short walk to the beach. No problems whatsoever with the house. Owners checked with us so that showed they cared. Had all you need. Locally, things to fill your time=beach, boardwalk, a three day blues Festival we went to, classic car show, some nice restaurants/bars=all within five minutes by golf cart.Fredericksburg was 30 minutes away. Another gem with bustling shops and restaurants in the walkable downtown. The Colonial Beach 7-11 store seemed to be the center of local's activity. All in all, a top notch cottage with a lot to do in the area.

Owner's Response: Irv, Thank you for such an amazing review. Colonial Beach is one of those hidden gems that has yet to be discovered. If people only knew how affordable the cost of living is in this little town, we would be booming! There are many fun things to do in and around Colonial Beach. There is also the Westmoreland Berry Farm, a vineyard, and Stratford Hall (a lot of History)! I hope you consider the Bikini Bottom in the future.

amazing views of Potomac

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the "beautiful cottage". Everything was as described. The views of the Potomac River from the back yard were amazing - so peaceful. The cottage was actually larger than we expected. Clean and well maintained with a little cottage charm of a few antique and unique pieces of furniture. Nice kitchen, large laundry room, plenty of seating to lounge out on the porch or family room in front of house or kitchen/dinning room in back of house or eat under the covered porch outside or around the fire pit in the back yard. We enjoyed our two favorite restaurants in Colonial Beach 1)dockside (great views of potomac, music, drinks at the tiki bar and good seafood poor-boy sandwich) 2) Lighthouse (nice view of the Monroe Bay beautiful at sunset, great food more upscale, amazing flounder). We look forward to our next visit - Kiki & Walt
