About Cathy Bokman
We first discovered Colonial Beach in 2006 and after enjoying the easy drive from Chevy Chase, MD and the warmth not only of the beach, but also the people...we bought a small cottage on the Point in 2007; ironically next to what is Beachcomber III. We loved sharing it with our family and friends. When not relaxing at the beach, my day job is in the hospitality business and I thought it would be fun to own a vacation cottage rental. In 2011, we bought our first beach rental; Beachcomber I on Hawthorn with some of our family members and undertook a major renovation...all of the hard work was worth it...we enjoyed being able to share this hidden secret of Colonial Beach with others. The overwhelming acceptance and positive comments we have received from guests saying how much they enjoyed their stay was very gratifying and in 2012 we bought another rental; Beachcomber II on Wilder. It, too, has been well received by our guests. In 2018, we opened Beachcomber IV on the River. I will say, it is a lot of work keeping the houses nice for our guests...but we have tremendous help from a team of local people who make sure it is clean, keys work, everything is in working order,..special thanks to Phyllis, Caroline, Susanna and my husband George who treat these cottages like their own and Beau, Jimmy, and Glenda who pitch in, as needed. I know, like me, after you experience the welcoming calm of Colonial Beach, you will be back many times...and we hope it is at one of the Beachcomber Cottages!
Why Cathy Bokman chose Colonial Beach
We chose this property for a couple of reasons; view, size, location, and the fact that it was demolished to the studs so that it was really a clean slate. As we reconstructed it; we changed the layout for maximum enjoyment of the view and adding the ability to have a guest suite within the house. Also we liked that it was one story; through the past several years of renting we have found that many of our guests want the accessibility of one level living.
What makes this House unique
We think you will enjoy the views from the front porch, livingroom, and dining room. We think you will like that it is close to a quiet beach. Many guests in our past rentals have enjoyed that we are family friendly; including your dogs. They also love the two large separate living areas; large den in back of the house and the front livingroom...giving people time together and apart. Please tell us what you enjoy! Please note, we take guest comments seriously. Some guests have commented on the beds. We found the beds very firm when we tested them so bought a new matttess, put gel pads on the other two mattresses. We tested the beds, and while they weren't as firm and more comfortable, we still found them to be squeaky. We tightened the headboards. No luck. Then we found the solution; it wasn't the mattress at all...it was the box spring. Happy to report, comfortable beds and the squeak is gone; thanks for the feedback!
