Unbelievable views!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! It was perfect for our little family! From the couch, you can sit and watch the sunset. Walk along the property and you will see little crabs when the water is low. Our dog loved it! We SUP and kayaked right from the deck. It is quiet, it is on the water and it is truly amazing!

Tina was easy to work with and stopped in to supply us with an extra key. Absolutely no problems. We highly recommend this property and Tina!!!

Wonderful Stay

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing week at Tina's house. We wanted a secluded house with AC and internet that allowed pets. The surrounding area is very quiet, a perfect get-away. The house was perfect for us and our two boys (ages 8 and 9). They loved the loft and the house could easily sleep six. The part of the bay in front of the house is perfect for younger kids. It is very shallow for a long ways. During low tide, the boys could walk out for a 100 yards or so and it was only at their ankles, during high tide- maybe their waist. They spent hours playing in the water in front of the house. There are two oyster beds by the dock so careful, but the crabbing was lots of fun. The only downside for us, is that the internet at the house basically shuts down after so much use each month. The request on the information sheet when we got there was no streaming or gaming on the internet. I'm guessing there was a bit of use before we got there too. We don't game and told our boys to not stream but the monthly limit was hit during the week and we went from slow basic internet, to basically nothing. Without phone service in this area, it was frustrating. We limited our search to houses with internet, I didn't expect limits on the use. The house could also use a few more bowls. Odd, but there were only two. We were creative with mugs and this is an easy fix. Other than the internet for us, the house and land was perfect for our family vacation. Thanks Tina!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We take great pride in keeping the cottage in tip top shape. In regard to the internet, we have purchased the highest amount available in this area. There are lesser packages but we elected the most. Sorry that this did not work for you. I live here and work from home and do not have issues. It is typically not a problem. Since we are local we would have been happy to bring bowls over had we known. Additional ones have been added. Thanks again for your input.

This rental is in a very quiet, serene location, but within easy distance to services. It was clean and well-equipped. It felt like home immediately! We LOVED being cute!

Wonderful location looking onto a secluded bay

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for 7 nights, we wanted to be in the middle of the Delmarva peninsular so that we could go north or south ( tick). The house is really well positioned with wonderful sunsets, birds, squirrels and deer. We are keen bird watchers and enjoyed seeing the osprey and kingfishers which were regular visitors. Tina is really helpful and the booking arrangements were easy. Would have given this five stars, but for a few niggles inside the property. I think the intention is to eat al fresco, but a combination of weather and Mosquitos prevented us from doing so, the eating arrangements internally are on the kitchen bar, to sit comfortably you have your back to the view ( not ideal) to sit facing the view is not comfortable as you bang your knees on the drawers. A few more kitchen aids would also help, for example, we had only one dishwasher tablet, travelling from the UK meant that we didn't want to buy stuff and not use it. We did buy some aluminium foil as we had nothing to wrap food for cooking or in the refrigerator.

All told it is a lovely property, handy for a drive into Onancock which is a pretty town and a short drive to Walmart for provisions. We had lots of days out at nature reserves and beaches. It was lovely to watch the sun go down with a chilled glass of wine.
