About Shannon French

When I was 27 years old, I decided to sell real estate. Shortly after at the age of 29, I decided to open my own brokerage, Southern Trade Realty (Oct. 2006 so you do the math to see how old I am now)! I quickly learned to combine my passion for designing, creating and decorating to another level. I started to invest in real estate at a very young age, and I am still very passionate about it. I really enjoy getting to know my guests and proud to say I now have repeat business. I concentrate on making sure my guests are happy and I take pride in the comfort of my properties and of course, the decor has to be just right.

Shannon French purchased this house in 2013

Why Shannon French chose Williamsburg

I love all of my vacation properties up for rent, but this one in particular was the location and the style of home. I think it is so charming and the screened in back porch I have visions of families drinking coffee and eating breakfast, napping or preparing a delicious dinner on the grill after a long day of sight seeing in Williamsburg or hanging out at the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for making our G's CNU graduation so wonderful. Our family traveled from Chicago, Ohio, Baltimore, Denver, D.C. to be together for our niece's occasion and family reunion. The house made it possible with it's warmth and charm. It really felt like home! Thank You

Loved it

  • 4 of 5

Super cute and clean home. The owners provided necessities so it was easy to move in/out. We stayed in December for 3 nights and enjoyed the tours of Williamsburg and the lights of Busch Gardens. The heat in the house needs to be balanced. Very hot in bedrooms and cold in main room. Please keep in mind it was incredibly cold outside during our visit so that may have contributed to the unbalanced heat distribution. I would definitely rent again!!

Quiet, out of the way property accessible to the Historical Triangle

  • 4 of 5

My mother, younger brother and I stayed here for a week to enjoy a little R&R and sight seeing around Virginia's Historical Triangle. The house was well-equipped for our stay. The bathrooms had plenty of towels and toilet paper. The eat-in kitchen had everything you might need to prepare meals and plenty of seating between the high-top table and small dining area right off the kitchen. The screened in porch on the back of the house was a nice place for quiet, early morning coffee and tea. While we did quite a bit of traveling to Yorktown, Jamestown and Williamsburg, we spent several evenings in as well and were very comfortable. We thank Shannon for her attention to detail and appreciate how seamlessly things were set up for our stay.

S/N: Please be advised that the third upstairs bedroom with four twin beds is practical for children, but does not have the height to accommodate anyone over 5'6" comfortably because of the peaked attic roof. This isn't a complaint-just a note to future guests who might be interested in space for 10 adults.

A great option for our group

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend stay at this property. It was very clean and neat and it was great not having to bring linens as they were provided. The neighborhood was very quaint and quiet. We especially enjoyed the enclosed porch in the mornings. This would be a great rental for a young family with kids as the upstairs has a great kids room with 4 twin beds.
