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.

A magical generational homecoming!

  • 4 of 5

Our week at Sue and Kevin's Anchorage Cottage was wonderful - in spite of the mostly gloomy weather. Buckroe was THE destination when I was a youngster with my Mama, Daddy, and extended family. My own children vacationed here when they were young. This year, we returned after over 25 years with my youngest daughter, now in her 40's, and my two youngest grandchildren. While there is not much of the old Buckroe to share with them, the wonderful, magical Carousel was still in the vicinity. We all loved riding, and I took an incredible ride down memory lane. Sue and Kevin's home was perfect for us, even with a couple hiccups which Kevin and Sue took care of ASAP. We all felt very much at home, and would love to return later this year if we can work it into our schedule! We had been vacationing in Carolina Beach or Emerald Isle. How awesome to find a lovely vacation spot so close to home.

Homey, comfortable cottage with INCREDIBLE location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 3 children thoroughly enjoyed our time at this fun little getaway. It felt like a home, not a rental! The owners were so responsive and made us feel comfortable asking any questions we had. We especially loved watching the sunrise from the huge deck, or while sipping coffee in the kitchen. We were also spoiled with a full moon rising over the ocean at night! Truly beautiful, lovingly maintained, and definitely a place we would like to return to in the future.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Two of us stayed in the bottom half of the house for a weekend. This was a really nice place - clean, quiet, right on the beach. The kitchen and living area were very comfortable and open. The beach was a good walking beach with lots of shells. Fort Monroe and the Maritime Museum were wonderful nearby attractions, and there was a small downtown area in Hampton that we would like to explore more - good food and friendly service at the Tap House. We'll be back with our kids - the place will easily accommodate 4.

SHELL xmas

  • 5 of 5

we had xmas in January....on the beach....HEAVEN>.. The cottage was perfect... clean, organized, everything you need for linens, kitchen, deck. The couch on the deck was fit about 5 of us and we all had heating blankets. That is where we lived morning til night.

Kevin was available immediately upon reaching out. Right on beach...minutes to boardwalk and playground. The house is laid out very open so you can see everything everyone is doing all the time... Thank you Kevin. We will be there next year...same time same place :)
