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 Gloucester

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

Uncle's birthday in matthews

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful house. I was centrally located for our our family activities.

Maybe you could add a mirror in a room other than the bathroom. Other than that we had everything we needed.

Thanks so much and I would highly recommend it to family and freinds who would want to be in the Matthews gloucester area.

The property was nice. Hardly used the home. We ran into some un planned events from the big guy. And had to cut our trip short.

Our child lost and earring and I emailed Shannon just as a head up, turns out they found the earring and mailing to me. Very impressed by that!

On the other hand, it has been over a week since we have checked out and getting in touch with Shannon about our refund damage deposit is one sided. Having three small kids , getting that 200$ back would help out tremendously.

All and all the house is great and big but also cozy.

I am sorry I did not respond to your question after you checked out due to unforeseen circumstances, but your refund was issued in a timely manner. Thank you for staying in our home.

The house was perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in July when our son got married in Yorktown. The house had everything we needed. The kitchen was very well equipped and we appreciated the supply of bath towels, toilet paper and paper towels. The beds were comfortable, we used all of them at some point. It was a perfect place to stay for our son's wedding. Thanks!

Great place to stay.

We had family in from out of town. There was plenty of space both indoor and outside. The porch is spacious and cool. This house had all the amenities, good location and is well maintained. We enjoyed our stay immensely.

Great place for the family to relax

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 3 nights stay. The 30 minute drive to Colonial Williamsburg was a peaceful drive along the York river. The house is well done with a well furnished kitchen. The 2 bathrooms were a blessing to our crew in the mornings. The interior of the whole house has been painted recently and has a fresh feel. The grill on the back porch was used to make some good steaks. We loved it !!!
