About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Enjoy a quiet stretch of private beach on the Chesapeake Bay and still be conveniently located to reach all the attractions that the Hampton Roads region has to offer. Walk, jog or take to the water from this jewel of a beach. Relax on a large deck with comfortable furniture. If you are a early riser, see the sun rise over the Atlantic Ocean. If you are a night owl, watch the stars in the sky and the lights of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel twinkle at night. There is always activity on the Chesapeake Bay! See giant cargo ships, aircraft carriers and submarines come and go from one of the busiest ports in the country. Observe the watermen hauling their crab pots in the morning, then head over to Capt. Ron's Seafood later that day to buy fresh crabs! Watch dolphins and a wide variety of birds including ospreys, brown pelicans and if you are lucky, bald eagles. And all of that is just viewed from the deck! Head to the beach for sun and fun. The beach is gently sloped, wide and great for kids! If you are a kayaker, sailor, windsurfer, stand-up paddle boarder, or kiteboarder you can put in from the beach right in front of this cottage. Hobie cats, Lasers, Sunfish and windsurfers are regularly launched from here. This is a first floor cottage apartment that was completely renovated in 2001. It has two bedrooms, one with a king size bed and the other with three singles, all linens are provided. There is a full kitchen including dishwasher, microwave, icemaker and all utensils and dishes. The bathroom has a tile floor and custom tile shower. Living room has a TV with cable, DVD player. and high speed internet with wireless. This is not a 'rental unit'. We use it ourselves much of the summer. It is fully equipped, carefully maintained and constantly being improved. All linens and dishes are included. The outdoor shower and walkways are completely rebuilt. There is now a nice Bermuda grass lawn wrapping around the cottage. This is the first floor of a duplex cottage. THREE NIGHT MINIMUM STAY, Check in 4:00PM, check out 10:00AM

This is the second time my sisters and I have stayed at the Anchorage. We enjoyed it just as much as the first! We will stay here again on our next trip!

Great, quiet place

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO. This is a great house. It was very quiet and the beach was great. We look forward to coming back in the future to the same place. We enjoyed watching the sunrise from the deck. The deck has a great view of the bay and at night you can see the lights from the bay bridge.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We could not asked for a better place to stay during our visit to the Peninsula. The house was clean, everything that we needed was there, beds were comfortable, and to make this a 100% review, the view of the Chesapeake was outstanding. I have rented through VRBO several times and this is one of the best I have rented.

best sunrise and kitchen!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the beach house. Every morning my early rising daughter and I watched the sunrise from the back deck and watched a couple fishermen and the birds that gathered around their boat. The kids loved their room with the drawer full of legos. The house was comfortable and spacious. And this was my favorite vacation house kitchen yet! It had everything we needed to create feasts; there was a Food Lion grocery store a mile away and a local seafood shop even closer.

The only problem we had was with the biting flies that limited both our beach time and our use of the large beautiful deck - but of course that's not the fault of the owners!

We fell in love with this lovely little beach house. Loved the big kitchen and the incredible view right from the kitchen table. Have stayed many places on the beach, mostly in Florida, but have never stayed in a place so close to the beach. The deck was so nice and the view from the deck was incredible. The weather was terrible, but the beautiful view and change of scenery was refreshing despite the rain.

The owner, Kevin, was wonderful about answering my many questions and always responded in a timely manner. Promotion of the property was spot on. We couldn't have been more pleased. Can't wait to have the opportunity to come back.

Everything we look for in a vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at the Anchorage Cottage because we enjoyed our first visit so much. This time we brought our son and daughter-in-law and they loved it as much as we do. The cottage itself has everything we need and we fully used the kitchen for meals and it is well supplied with appliances and cook ware. We particularly love the location and view from large living and dining room windows and the patio area.

For fishing lovers (which our son is) it's great to be so close to the fishing pier. The family spent several hours there catching fish and crabs and meeting some very nice people. We enjoyed going to Fort Monroe for a visit of the history of Hampton. There are also several great restaurants and we purchased fresh fish and shrimp from a local fish market.

We appreciate that the hosts are very responsive to inquiries and provide information about the area. They are great hosts!
