About the Property

3 bedroom, Den, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Fair Winds is a charming beach house completed in the spring of 2012 and located in the Piney Island section of the old fishing town of Chincoteague Island, Virginia. It is a quick bike ride to the bridge to Assateague with boat ramp water access just down the street. Assateague Island is a national wildlife refuge run by the US Fish and Wildlife Service. The pristine beach is managed by the US Park Service. Fair Winds has three bedrooms plus a den (the "loft room") and two full baths. The upstairs master has a king-sized bed; a queen is in the front bedroom downstairs, twins are in the downstairs “turtle room” and the upstairs loft room. The loft room is ok for a couple kids. It is open to the great room below, but there are doors that can close it off for sleeping. The heart of Fair Winds is the sunny great room with wood-burning fireplace. It includes living and dining areas as well as the kitchen with island and barstools. Kitchen amenities include electric range with glass cooktop, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, and an excellent supply of cookware and utensils. On the street side is a partially covered deck, and in the back, a screened porch overlooks the woods. In the hall of the main floor, there is a laundry closet with full sized washer and dryer. There is a TV with satellite service and a DVD player in the loft room. In the great room is a simple but impressive radio/CD/iPod player. The house has a land line for local calls as well as wireless internet access. Below the house is the carport, shed, an outdoor shower for removing the worst of the sand from the beach, and a clothes line. You will also find a small Weber grill. Please, no smoking and no pets. Fair Winds will be cleaned and ready for your stay. Please bring sheets and towels (don't forget beach towels!), because I do not provide linen service. Experience the quintessential family vacation. I wish you 'Fair winds and a following sea.'

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I built this house across the street from my own vacation home mainly for family and friends. My family has been coming to Chincoteague for many years and I am spending more and more time here in this beautiful place.

Why the Owner Chose Piney Island, Chincoteague Island, VA, USA:
Chincoteague is unique among beach spots. It is not for the wild minded, but for families, it is perfect. The Piney Island neighborhood is the closest to the bridge to Assateague, easy biking distance. The dirt road keeps the cars slow and enables the kids to ride their bikes with abandon.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I built this house myself and tried to have it be both child friendly (assuming a bit of sand!) and comfortable for quiet evenings for adults.
