About Bill Metzger

Bill Metzger is originally from Oklahoma, but has lived in Virginia for the past 35 years. Now semi-retired I love living on the Chesapeake Bay and near the small but charming town of Mathews.

Why Bill Metzger chose USA

The house has expansive views from every room in the house. At least 110 years old this house has weathered many storms and hurricanes. It was a working farm. In this area most farmers also were watermen with fishing boats.

The house has been modernized to today's high standards yet continues to maintain it's coastal farm house charm. It has everything a coastal property should have. A quiet slide into the cove for kayaks, boat loading ramp and boathouse that can accommodate two 36' craft.

What makes this house unique

The first time I saw this property, it was love at first sight. Nothing beats the expansive views and when the sun is at a certain angle the water definitely looks blue -- thus, Blue Water Haven.

It is a haven from all the worries of the world. Although if you want to stay in touch with the world we have WiFi and TV's in every room.

Love Staying Here!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay at this beautiful home, we enjoyed our stay once again! This home is beautifully maintained and the furnishings are very comfortable! Our family enjoyed sitting in the living, getting cozy by the fire, and reminiscing about the past, having breakfast together at the big dining room table, and waking up to beautiful views of the sun rising! I would definitely recommend this home to any one who wants a nice big home, privacy, and all the comforts of home and so much more!

We did eat out at a restaurant in Matthew; Richardson's Cafe' (I believe) it's a small restaurant, but the food is very fresh and VERY Good! We made a reservations because it was 12 of us meeting there, and the food and service was great! They serve all kinds of food!

Bill was great to work with and a joy to talk to, always very pleasant and friendly! We hope that we'll be able to visit again during the warmer months, so we can enjoy all that the home has to offer.

Gorgeous home; amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Girls' Weekend with first grade buddies. Blue Water Haven is just perfect. Very comfortable and well appointed home. So much to do whether it is kayaking, boating, reading a book, taking in the amazing views, swimming in the beautiful pool (in season), biking, exploring the area (very close to Mathews), and just hanging out with friends. We had a very relaxing stay and did NOT want to leave. Thanks, Bill, for sharing your wonderful home with us; we loved it!

Great Family Property

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful. Lots of amenities and fully stocked. Incredible views - both sunrise & sunset. Fishing not good but successful crabbing from boat house. Having own boat launch was nice feature. We used kayaks and even used bikes to ride to nearby Haven Beach. We visited New Point lighthouse lookout. Used steamer pot several times, for fresh caught blue crabs and low country boil. Grilled some local clams! Mathews is nice, good food at Richardsons and got great pizza at South Wind. Great trip! Fantastic house and yard. Beds very comfy, beautiful decorations/interior. Loved the soft robes!!

This property was outstanding and as advertized. Clean and comfortable , very relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

This property was an excellent choice for our family vacation. This was our first together in several years and this home made it one of our best vacations. There was something for everyone, grand kids loved the pool and large yard to play in. We all loved the nice touch of the fire pit at the edge of the water. Crabbing was great and we all enjoyed the kayak launch and surrounding waters. This is a place we will book again in the future for another family get together. THANKS Bill for sharing your home with us.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The most beautiful villa with amazing attention to details that you might find while visiting a good spa.

Incredible area that gives you a chance to do so much and is good for all ages and tastes. And the pinnacle of everything is Bill that makes everything very easy and makes sure that you enjoy your stay. We were with four thirty years old kids and we all enjoyed every moment in this house! Swimming pool, cayaks, fire pit, bicycles, and much more!!
