Fantastic weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our weekend getaway. The house is very comfy and fit for relaxation. The beach community is quiet and secluded with a beautiful beach and views of the bay and a nearby lighthouse. We appreciated the attention and accommodation we received from the owners, and we look forward to returning again!

Handsome farmhouse at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a great place to spend a long weekend in the country. Walk across the street to the beach and you'll enjoy a long beachfront great for walking and beach combing. The New Point Comfort lighthouse is about 3/4 of a mile walk down the beach and well worth it to see the centuries old beauty.

Bring bug spray for hanging out on the porch! The mosquitos were present around the house but the beach was almost bug-free.

Call Al Mathews at Janet M Charters for a great fishing day on the bay.

Best Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My only complaint was that we weren't able to stay longer and the bugs were bad! Molly was amazing from start to finish. We were a bit nervous renting a house without a pool since that was all we have ever known. What a treat! The house was amazing. The kids had their own private room and the magic that came out of their each night was memorable.

We dealt with the bugs as best we could. We read another review that recommended citronella candles and that seemed to ward off the bugs. We were looking forward to sitting on the decks, however we were unable to sit outside most evenings.

Loved, loved, loved the outdoor shower. In fact I don't think any of us used the indoor shower after the first day. Fun little asset!

The town of Mathews was amazing and provided many memories for my family. We enjoyed wandering around in the little shops, eating at the fun restaurants and appreciated the Food Lion.

The walk to the New Comfort lighthouse was a fun adventure even for the 5 year old. I would recommend bringing something to hold all your fun finds.

Molly's house was perfect for the 8 of us. We appreciated the washer and dryer and loved spending time on the bay. We were one of 3 families all week on the beach. It was as Molly described, very desolate. We had no problem leaving our stuff on the beach and heading back and forth to the house. We did find a lot of trash and glass along the shore. 3 out of 8 of us did end up with cuts on our feet.

We are already talking about heading back to the same place next year. Thanks for a fun, memorable and easy stay at the bay.

Charming, quaint, perfect saltwater getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful last minute getaway, two mom friends and our three small children. The cottage is so quaint and charming and we had everything that we needed during our stay. The owners were very attentive and friendly and the resident neighbors were super welcoming and helpful. You really get a feel of this forgotten historic bay town, within steps to a white sandy beach that is serene and beautiful, perfect for enjoying some saltwater play with our young ones.

Beautiful, peaceful vacation - we loved the house and the location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Beachhouse. The house was clean and cozy and the beach is beautiful and fantastic for swimming and evening walks. We really enjoyed our stay and had a wonderful "old fashioned" vacation that the whole family cherished and enjoyed. I would highly recommend it!

Quiet, cozy, and convenient to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this cute farmhouse at the beach! The house was very quiet and comfortable. The beach was a very quick walk across the street, and the designated beach area was perfect! The sand was soft and the waves were gentle... Perfect for kids and relaxing! The house had an outdoor shower, which was great for removing sand before entering the house. The inside was spacious and had everything we needed. The top deck and front porch also offered great areas for enjoying the beach atmosphere. We had such a nice stay!
