Overview

About the property

Large, Ultra-modern, Green Technology, Beach House 3 Bedroom/2 Bath (Sleeps 7-8)

Third year offered for rental! Three bedrooms and a loft. Two waterfront queen BR's, a bunk room with two twins and a single twin bed in the loft. Great privacy for everyone with all bedrooms having direct access to a bathroom. Screened dining, chef's kitchen. Theater room with flat screen TV and DVD player. Sleeps seven (or an eighth child guest on a small pull-out) in comfort and style. Launch your kayak from our pier when you're not catching big crabs or fishing. Covered parking, charcoal grill. Everything you need for a luxurious family vacation at the beach. This year we will include the use of our tandem kayak, paddles and life vest with the rental price. Tandem kayaks rent on the island for $65/day- so this is $400 value for our weekly guests!! Please make arrangements in advance. ***Just added!!*** We will also have crabbing nets and trot lines available for your use for crabbing off of our pier. Add chicken necks and sent the kids down to the pier to catch dinner for the family!

NOTE TO FUTURE GUESTS: VRBO/HOMEAWAY IS RAISING OUR LISTING RATE 43% IF WE REFUSE TO PARTICIPATE IN ITS, "BOOK IT NOW" PROGRAM. THIS PROGRAM WOULD ALLOW YOU TO BOOK YOUR OWN BLOCK OF TIME.... BUT.... IT WOULD COST YOU AN ADDITIONAL 7-8% OF THE RENTAL FEE FOR THE PRIVILEGE. WE DO NOT BELIEVE THAT SERVICE IS WORTH AN ADDITIONAL $100+ FOR YOUR SUMMER VACATION WEEK. WE BELIEVE YOU'D FIND A NICE MEAL OUT, AN ALL-DAY FISHING TRIP OR ISLAND TOUR MUCH MORE SATISFYING. SO WE ARE GOING TO EAT THE INCREASED COST AND CONTINUE TO DO OUR BEST TO PROVIDE A LUXURIOUS, WATERFRONT VACATION AND A FAMILY-FRIENDLY PRICE POINT.

*PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO A GLITCH ON THE VRBO MENU- THE PRICING DIFFERENTIAL FOR PONY PENNING WEEK IS NOT LISTED. THAT WEEK (JULY 23-30) IS $1800.*

About Scott Harbinson

We built this home for our children. We wanted to create the sort of childhood memories that would last a lifetime and would be passed down to future generations. We chose Chincoteague because we view it as 'Mayberry By-The-Sea'. Chincoteague is a family resort. There are no bars, tattoo parlors and serious crime is almost unheard of. It is the sort of place where we feel perfectly comfortable letting our teenaged children explore on their own. They ride bikes to the beach, to get ice cream, take the kayak out, go crabbing and play basketball and tennis down the street at Memorial Park. They have an autonomy and freedom here that has given them greater confidence and has provided an opportunity to make decisions in a safe environment.

Scott Harbinson purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Scott Harbinson chose Eastern Shore

We designed this home with families in mind. The second floor queen BR is for adults affording a panoramic view through a 12 foot wide slider. It has a shared full bath. The second floor has a 'bunk room' for the kids with two singles down and another single up in a loft accessed by a ship's ladder. This bedroom also has direct, separate access to the bathroom. Adjacent is the theater room with four movie theater seats and a 40' flat screen TV. This allows 'early risers' to be autonomous and give Mom and Dad the opportunity to sleep in. The third floor is entirely dedicated to the master suite. Queen memory foam bed, sitting room with TV and DVD player; and travertine luxury bath including soaking tub. Of course, stupendous views of the Channel and lighthouse out to the Atlantic through a huge 8 x 12 slider. There's also a balcony for morning coffee, afternoon sun or enjoying a quiet evening drink.

What makes this townhome unique

This house was built featuring some innovative green technology. It's walls and roof are made of structural insulated panels, not 2x4's and plywood. It is tight as a vault, incredibly well insulated and quiet as can be.

Since construction, this house has stood against Hurricane Irene and Super Storm Sandy without sustaining so much as a scratch.

Notes:
When you compare our house to others on the island, you will see that it is not only among the most family friendly; but also among the best values. Part of being 'family-friendly' is to make sure that our rental is fairly priced. This is our first time renting and we want to assure that families can afford to access our property and create some memories for their own children.

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time exploring the island! The house was perfect - we watched the ponies across the channel every morning from the third floor balcony. We really enjoyed the little 'theater room' as well as the movie nook in the top floor bedroom. We took full advantage of crab pot. Everything you need to steam up those beauties are in the house. The kayak was awesome to have! My only suggestion would be to have some sort of 'house book' that would let you know the best places to launch (the dock was really difficult to launch from!), maybe spotlight some of the cool area attractions (Picos has the best tacos!).

We had a wonderful time in the perfect location! The perfect way to spend a birthday!

Thank you!

Family get away

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental was awesome. The owner is very responsive. The house was family friendly. The island was everything me and my family hoped it would be. We will definitely be going back.

Owner's Response: Hello Sandra, Thank you for your kind words. We are pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable stay and our home met your expectations. Memorial Day is a great time to visit- but many visitors find Fall rentals even more enjoyable, owing to the cool days and warm ocean water. We typically swim in the ocean until Halloween. Hope you and your family return soon! Scott and Beth

Relaxing refuge

  • 5 of 5

Our busy family had an amazing time in this beautiful house. After exploring the island for the week, we can say this is one of the best locations at a reasonable price. Our teenagers had a great time playing games, hanging out on the dock crabbing, kayaking and going to the beach. We could see the pony herds every day from the decks and porches. We even had a couple rainy days, but there is plenty to do in this home that is well stocked with games and family friendly movies. Everyone had more than enough space to stretch out and relax and the owner was beyond helpful with our many pre-trip questions. If you've never been to Chincoteague, this is a great place to get your feet wet!

Fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home with another family and were so pleased with the choice. A gorgeous, bright & airy home with all the details well thought out... Screened porch, games, gourmet kitchen, theater, large bathrooms, and the views!!! STUNNING! We were very comfortable here and would definitely stay again. We didn't use the kayaks but the men enjoyed the tranquility of the dock. Great location - a bit more quiet and peaceful, but only minutes to all the places you'd want to go. Good communication with the owner, and we're also thankful for the family friendly prices. Thanks for a great getaway!
