About Ashley Sabo

My husband and I have been married for 16 years and live in Charlotte, NC. We have two wonderful children and two great dogs. We both love the beach and actually met in Charleston, SC

Ashley Sabo purchased this house in 2011

Why Ashley Sabo chose Eastern Shore

Cape Charles is a wonderful town on the Bay that has something for everyone to enjoy. My parents discovered this unique vacation spot years ago, that has since become their home and our vacation home.

What makes this house unique

Our home is perfectly located in the town of Cape Charles. We are 5 blocks from the beach, and only one block main street where there is great food and boutique shopping. I enjoy running and excercise and love that we are one block from the gym, and can take off in any direction and have an amazing scenic run. My husband is an avid angler, and has enjoyed the best fishing of his life with my father who is 'the best' Charter Captain on the Eastern Shore. Our children love the beach as they can walk out and it remains shallow for a long distance and the waves don't knock them over.

Nice comfortable house for a laid back week at the beach.

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious, well appointed and comfortable. The sideyard driveway made it easy for arrival and departure loading/unloading. Garden hose at the driveway was perfect for rinsing sand off feet, floats and our dog. We spent a good deal of time in the evenings relaxing on the spacious front porch. Easy access for coming and going with key less lock. We rented their golf cart too and the setup was great for parking and recharging. We look forward to staying there next summer.

'Gone to The Beach' -Charming and Well Equipped with Classic Beach Vibe.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at 'Gone to The Beach' with great decor and conveniences. We were only sad that we didn't have more friends and family come and stay to share the experience. House well equipped for several people and many beach home and town memories. Loved the stroll into the main parts of Cape Charles and found that driving to the beach made the most sense. Would recommend to anyone looking to enjoy a great family getaway at a small town pace. Not to far from Virginia Beach if you are looking for more excitement, but we enjoyed staying right in Cape Charles and the simplicity of homemade ice cream, tennis in the morning, coffee shop breakfast, great local theater, Above par meal at The Oyster Bar and several pool and beach days, with plenty of time to lounge on the back porch and play board games. We will definitely re-book next year if we choose Cape Charles for our summer vacation spot!

Excellent location and home in Cape Charles

  • 5 of 5

During the last week of June in 2017, my family and I along with my sister's family stayed at "Gone to the Beach" in Cape Charles. The owner is fabulous - very responsive and clear with all instructions.

The house is located a few blocks from a very pleasant, family friendly beach. Some of our group preferred to walk while others drove. It's fine if all you are bringing is a towel, but too far to carry a cooler, chairs etc. The water is calm and the beach is rather shallow for quite a ways, making it ideal for families with small children. It has beautiful, powdery sand and the beach was never packed -- parking was always available. We did rent the golf cart, which I would recommend as it makes for a nice way to get around the little town when you don't want to drive your vehicle.

The house is an older home with lots of charm but has been renovated nicely. It is in really nice shape with some nice modern upgrades (digital AC, Wi-Fi, nice appliances, etc.). There is a comfortable living room, spacious dining room and a good sized kitchen on the first floor. Upstairs, you will find a master bedroom w king sized bed (no private bath), a room with two queens, a third room with bunk beds (sleeps five comfortably as there is a full size bottom bunk) and another smaller room with a futon. That futon is not very comfortable, so if you are planning on sleeping on it, you better have very young bones. In fact, the only criticism we have of the entire home is that the beds are not great. They are not bad, but they could certainly be replaced at this point. There is a full bath upstairs, another one downstairs off the dining room (with laundry facilities) and an outdoor shower, which I myself used every day.

We would return and certainly recommend "Gone to the Beach" for those seeking a family friendly location in a home that can comfortably sleep a larger group.
