Great relaxing vacation !!

  • 5 of 5

I will agree with what all the other reviews have said. For starters the house is beautifully furnished, and is super clean ! The area is secluded and very quiet. In the front of the house is the in ground pool, which we spent a lot of time in. Behind the house is a great view of the bay, complete with a great dock to fish, crab or just sit and enjoy. My family really enjoyed the week we spent here. We did a lot of day trips from here all within an hour drive or so. Busch Gardens, Jamestown, Neweport News.

We also booked a fishing charter in nearby Hudgins with Fintango Charters, Highly recommend if your looking to going charter fishing.

All in all a great vacation, and I would highly recommend this house for anyone visiting this area.

This was our second visit to Puerto Del Sol. AMAZING!!! The home is very beautiful, clean and welcoming. The crabbing was great and the pool was wonderful to cool off in on the very hot days of our vacation. Our family stayed close by, only leaving to fish at the Chesapeake Bay. Everything that you need is provided; and such a beatiful view from the screened porch and the dock! Thanks for a memorable vacation!

Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best vacation spots I have come across. It was rustic and quiet but had plenty to do as well. The crabbing was unbelievable and when it got too hot the pool was perfect for cooling off. If you just want to relax there is plenty of space for that as well. Everything was thought of by the owner from the towels and linens to the kitchen equipment. My kids are already asking me when we can go back. We hope to return year after year.

We had a wonderful family vacation in Mathews this summer. Our jaws just dropped when we saw the view from the family room...awesome! The house was truly incredible and very hard to leave, we caught crabs everyday off of the dock, rode bikes, swam in the pool, kayaked, went sailing, visited Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown and Busch Gardens...and spent many blissful hours just watching the tide come and go...the house was sparkling clean and very well appointed. I would highly recommend this is truly special!
