About Cape Charles Vacation Rentals

Our family loves the peaceful serenity of the Eastern Shore beaches! We love the small-town atmosphere of Cape Charles, and like the nostalgic simplicity and friendliness of the town! Here we are enjoying the front porch swing on a beautiful summer's day....

Cape Charles Vacation Rentals purchased this house in 2005

Why Cape Charles Vacation Rentals chose Cape Charles

We like to 'unplug' and get back to basics for our beach vacations: sun, sand, biking, kayaking etc. But also, there is plenty of fun to be had at Kelly's pub, good food at Aqua at the Kings Creek marina, and championship calibre golf at Bay Creek Resort. Norfolk/Va Beach provides plenty of variety for a lengthy stay

What makes this house unique

We are one short block from the beach, and it makes it so convenient! Plus, we are right around the corner from the town pub and the restaurants. Everything is within walking distance to our house! The nicest thing is that this was furnished by us, for us, so you will be surrounded in new, tasteful furnishings - not miss-matched and worn leftovers!

Comfortable house in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Can't beat the location. One block from the beach and Mason Ave. Updated compared to older homes in the area as the kitchen and master bath are very nice. Outside shower and screened in porch made it easy to keep sand out.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 had a super relaxing and enjoyable vacation in Cape Charles. The house was perfect for us - we loved the porches, breakfast nook and easy walk to the beach. Renting a golf cart to get around was lots of fun too!

Well kept and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 4 night stay during Thanksgiving and I had no problem cooking the festive meal as the kitchen was well appointed. I do hope to stay there again in the summer.

Wonderful beach house

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable, clean and convenient beach house - only a very short walk to the bandstand entrance of the town beach in Cape Charles. The house looks like a historic Cape Charles house from the outside, yet has all the modern conveniences on the inside (including two zone A/C, which was needed during the hot week we just had). It is just like new. It was the perfect size for our family of four. We enjoyed being able to walk to the beach and the restaurants and shops on Mason Ave - it is equally close to both. Great place!
