Quiet and relaxing
Jill and Lynn were very nice and welcoming. The house is clean and cozy. It was a lovely stay and I would recommend this place to anyone. Thank you for making our anniversary stay memorable.
Amazing, beautiful property
This is the most peaceful place I've ever been.
Property is just as described. Lovely setting among pine trees. The little beach is quite nice. The cabin is comfortable, actually more spacious than you might think from the photos. We had an unexpected situation come up at the last minute, and the owners were completely accommodating. We really appreciated that. We had a great stay. Highly recommended.
Great location for a get away!
The beachfront property is beautiful. The yard was immaculate, the beach clean and the views amazing. The hammock, screened porch and out door furniture were very comfortable and where we spent most of our time. The neighborhood was quiet. The house was VERY clean on our arrival. There was a musty smell upon our arrival and the owners offered to come right away to see if they could determine the cause, we just let it go but it sounds like they had a repair guy out right after we left to address this concern ( keep in mind Virginia has seen nothing but rain all summer this year). The living room furniture and bed were not as comfortable as we would have liked and it didn’t have that complete rental feel that I like so very much. I damaged the paint on the door while leaving and first, I loved the option of just purchasing insurance to cover this vs holding a deposit and second, the owners were beyond nice about my mistake.
Hit up the Crazy Crab restaurant. Great views and seafood!
We are sorry your stay was not as perfect as you would have liked. The bed has a recently purchased Beautyrest luxury firm plush top mattress. Most like it. The living room furniture is oversize and comfortable as well. We all have different tastes. We do not have a clue as to what the "complete rental feel" is.. This is our home and we strive to make it welcoming, clean, comfortable, restful and tasteful. It does not have a motel/hotel feel to it.
Mini-vacation stay at the beach.
We had a wonderful long weekend stay at Shifting Sands. Lynn and Jill were very hospitable and made us feel welcome in their beautiful home. The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed. And the beach access was wonderful. We will definitely come back to this gem.
Comfortable and private with beautiful view of the wide Potomac River.
