Villa Dun Well offers the perfect blend of contemporary sophistication, natural beauty, relaxing outdoor space and amazing art inside and out. The tree lined drive leads you to the private waterside retreat. Once on the property you can explore the gardens, stroll through the pine forest, paddle in the cove or take a leisurely dip in the secluded in ground pool. The owners love of the outdoors is evident with the great care they've taken to cultivate the living shoreline which attracts grey herons, bald eagles and osprey to name a few. There are numerous outdoor seating areas which allow for family gatherings, communing with nature or just curling up with a good book. Walk down the private, deep water dock (5+MLW) and view a spectacular sunrise or bring your boat and explore Harris Creek and the rest of the Chesapeake Bay. There are also a variety of garden areas to explore, all designed around the art and sculpture located throughout the grounds.
The interior offers open, bright spaces with a sophisticated, contemporary touch at each turn. The gourmet kitchen is any chef's dream! There are many dining options with a breakfast bar to view the chef in action, formal dining table that seats 8 or a more casual round table seating 6. There are comfortable couches and chairs in front of a wood burning fireplace or wicker seating, all with views of the cove, gardens and pine forest. If you are interested in escaping the outdoors, the media room at Villa Dun Well offers a vast library of movies to keep you entertained for hours. Escape to one of the three bedrooms to rest up for another day in paradise and wake refreshed for your next adventure. Visit with us for a week or a weekend and enjoy the perfect escape!!

The property is more beautiful than can be captured in pictures. The home is well maintained and has everything you need and more. Wildlife galore with beautiful picture windows to watch the show as you cook and dine. Beautifully decorated with interesting art everywhere you look. So peaceful, but St. Michael's is just a few minutes away. Highly recommend.
We are very happy that you have enjoyed your stay. Many memories have been made here. We look forward to your returning during one of our many beautiful seasons on the bay.
I've got accolades aplenty for this fabulous home! Both the house and the grounds were beautiful; we particularly loved the open layout of the downstairs. One could flow easily from the kitchen to the living to the dining area to the outside. It was bright with natural light and fantastic views of the water. Speaking of the kitchen, as an avid cook, I appreciated the double dishwashers, the pro sink with the pedal, and the sleek layout and design. It was equipped with literally everything one could need to prep a fantastic family meal. Outside, the grounds were lush, well maintained, and well thought out-- and enhanced by the eclectic and extensive collection of artwork. There was also a fun and diverse collection of art inside as well. In terms of location, the home is secluded and right on the water with a private dock, yet a mere 15 minutes from St Michaels. Honestly, both my husband and I can't wait to go back to this wonderful and inviting home; we're checking our calendars already-- the only thing we were missing was a boat!
If we were to write a review for our wonderful Villa Dun Well, it would read exactly what our guests have written. It is a well planned place to enjoy and to pause and listen to the silence of all the wonders it offers.
Wonderful Labor Day Vacation
I booked the Villa Dun Well as the location to celebrate my sister's 40th birthday and we could not have been more impressed with the space!! The view was out of this world and the activities available on the premises were wonderful from the kayaks to the dock to the salt water pool. We loved it all! Barbara and everyone else involved with the rental were incredibly helpful and attentive to every need and request. The house has the newest appliances and is very convenient to the Tilghman Island restaurants and to St. Michaels. We were sad to leave and could have spent a full week at the Villa with the abundance of things to do. We hope to make the Villa an annual trip and cannot wait to go back!!
Thank you very much for your kind words, Villa Dun Well is a beautiful home, with something for everyone. We hope you do make this an annual visit, we truly appreciate wonderful guests!
Even better than the pictures!!
my wife and I spent 10 wonderful nights at Villa Dun Well. From the moment we walked in we relaxed. The house, the furnishings, the art and the view were amazing beautiful and comfortable. The pool and the grounds (tomatoes and blueberries for picking) only added to our experience. The house would absolutely be great for more people to share, but was terrific for two. St Michaels was great (10 miles away) for shopping and restaurants. Also Tilghman island is nice for biking (2miles).
Barbara, the manager, was always available if needed.
We felt so lucky to find such an amazing getaway. Anyone would be lucky to stay here.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, its gratifying having guests who appreciate the house and grounds! Please come back and see us again on another getaway.
Our family had the most lovely time is this gorgeous waterfront home. The grounds were out of a magazine as well of the house itself! The salt water pool was a dream. The kitchen made for a gourmet chef! The bedrooms were comfortable and stunning. The art work unbelievable. The book collection fantastic. The media room super comfortable with a movie collection for every taste. My husband caught fish everyday off the private pier. 15 minutes to Saint Michaels. 5 minutes to Tilgham Island. We have owned our own home in the area and have stayed at other homes after selling our home there, nothing has compared to our experience at Villa Dun Well. Really a Villa Dun Well.
Thank you for your kind words, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. The owner takes great pride in his property and that really shines through!! Please come back and visit with us again.
