About Fred Nicoll, a Licensed Real Estate Broker for over 50 years

I am a retired Realtor in Maryland who desires to share my second home in one of America's great resorts. I have recently decided to terminate my rental agreement with Kingsmill in order to rent to guests who desire longer stays. At the same time, I have greatly reduced the rental rates in that I am not operating a daily hotel service. Resort pools are not part of this rental.

Fred Nicoll, a Licensed Real Estate Broker for over 50 years purchased this condo in 2004

Why Fred Nicoll, a Licensed Real Estate Broker for over 50 years chose Williamsburg

When I first drove into the community of Kingsmill on the James River I immediately fell in love with the best that Virginia has to offer. I was already drawn to the history of our country in Williamsburg and wanted my grandchildren to experience the beginnings of our land. The beautiful golf courses, walking and biking trails, tennis, marina, ponds for canoes were over the top.

Having Busch Gardens, WaterCountryUSA, museums minutes away completed the picture for a great stay on the James River.

What makes this condo unique

I have discovered that Kingsmill can be enjoyed year round. A gated community offers the feeling of security on early morning walks. Eagles fly over on their way to the river to fish. Leaves turn in the fall. My wife enjoys having the choice of high end shopping in the historic area or the outlet malls located minutes away. Our stays are not long enough and we continue to return.

The sounds of the train whistle and the fireworks of Busch Gardens excite our grandkids. Our guests' reviews tells the the story of living on the historic James River. Talk about unique.

Our stay 7/27 - 7/31-2017 (Sponaugle & Casto)

  • 5 of 5

Had a really great time. Fred is such a wonderful person to work with and deal with. His condo is anyone's dream of a well maintained, stocked, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere location. He keeps you informed of what to do and how. We were a little disappointed in Busch Gardens but we had a great time at Water Country USA, the Cabana was the way to go if taking small children. It rained all day off an on but who cares, you get wet anyway. It was nice staying in Fred's place because we could use the shuttle to and from Busch Gardens and Water Country. Didn't have to pay for parking which saved us money. If you are looking for a great place to stay, reasonable price and the patio's were just the perfect place to see deer, rabbits and all kinds of wildlife and the scenery of the James River was just beautiful in the late evening and early morning. Call Fred today and book that condo, he is the one to see.

Owner's Response: Hi Linda. Your review is the reason I bought Graves Ordinary on the Historic James River. I am happy to share it with others. Williamsburg is a special place in our history and now. The fall is the best time to visit. Come again. Fred

Our 3rd visit!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are planning our 3rd trip to this near perfect condo in July. It's such a great find! It's a beautiful, rasonably priced 3 bedroom condo in fantastic location. The setting is gorgeous and there is easy access to both Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens. The condo is also well furnished and quite lovely. It's great for families. Fred is a thoughtful host to boot.

Great condo, perfect location, fabulous views.

  • 5 of 5

The condo is fabulous in all aspects, better than the pictures. The location is perfect. The bedrooms are spacious, well appointed and clean. The bathrooms are modern and functional, effectively making each room its own master suite. Each bedroom even has its own thermostat. The kitchen has all of the appliances you need, all are in good shape and work well. All of the furniture is new and clean, none of the worn-out stuff you see in some places. There are three outside porches, all with views of the James River. We would stay here again in a heartbeat, and look forward to our next trip to Williamsburg.

Relaxing Respite

  • 5 of 5

Our family returned to this condo for a second pre Christmas respite before the hectic holidays got into full swing.The location of the condo on the James River is just amazing. The Kingsmill Resort is such a peaceful, beautiful place! Fred is an amazing host and the condo is clean, spacious, and very well appointed with anything one could need. We love the big bedrooms and everyone has their own bathroom space. The condo area is quiet as well. The kitchen and adjoining den are a relaxing area for families to gather. Each morning we watched the sunrise over the James River through the glass doors from the den.Gorgeous! We walked down to the marina at night and watched sunsets as well. We visited Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens Christmastown on our visit and the condo is a very short drive to both areas. We had a delicious meal at Maurizios Italian restaurant which is very close to Kingsmill and features homemade garlic knots and fresh pasta. I can't imagine a more relaxing and convenient place to stay in the Williamsburg area.We left with our batteries full charged and ready for the holidays! Fred is an amicable host and is genuinely interested in his guests and their needs. I have rented many properties through VBRO and I can honestly say that he is one of the best hosts you could ever work with.

Far exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We had a "mini" family reunion in Williamsburg and this unit easily accommodated all 4 generations (7) of us. There isn't anything negative we can say about this unit - it is beautifully appointed with all the necessities needed for entertainment and cooking. We especially enjoyed drinking coffee on the patio while being entertained by the deer and various other little critters going about their morning business. It is convenient to Busch Gardens, Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown and of course, shopping and many fine restaurants. The owners are very easy to contact and willing to do all they can to make your stay perfect. We would recommend this unit to anyone and will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Hi. It makes me happy to hear that you enjoyed Graves as much as my family does. Sorry you missed the Osprey and the occasional eagle flying over to fish in the historic James River. Looking forward to hearing from you again. Fred
