About Robert Shepherd

Fithri is from an island (Java, in Indonesia) and Robert has always wanted to live on an island. We hope you enjoy everything Chincoteague Island has to offer as much as we do.

Robert Shepherd purchased this bungalow in 2017

Why Robert Shepherd chose Eastern Shore

We are in a very quiet neighborhood that is child and bicycle friendly. This property is up to date with all the amenities you could want. The screened porch is one of the best on the island, or so we are told.

What makes this bungalow unique

We spend most of our time on the 12x24 screened in porch. Walking to nearby restaurants and shops is easy. We also bike around the island, including an easy twenty minute ride to the low-key biker/hiker beach on Assateague, a five minute ride to the shops and restaurants on Main Street, and a ten minute ride to the entrance on Assateague. And remember, the park service does not charge an admission fee to bikers.

A lovely little cottage!

  • 4 of 5

The Chincoteague Island Bungalow is a charming, well-maintained, very pleasant cottage!

The kitchen is very well equipped and the washer/dryer is a definite plus! While we did not use the annex for sleeping purposes, it was great to have the extra bathroom! Board games and cards a nice touch, as are the beach chairs (4) and two beach umbrellas! Greatly appreciated! Thank you!

The cottage is located within walking distance of Maddox and not too far from Main Street...we walked and biked to both!

Perhaps the best thing about this darling home, however, is the screened in porch...very large, comfortable, immediate access to the kitchen, and with a roomy outdoor shower (also helpful with 4 sandy adults!)

All in all, wonderful weather, beautiful Chincoteague, pleasant accommodations and family = best vacation!!

What a Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin? This cottage has everything - the amenities are so nice, comfortable beds, dish washer, washer and dryer, etc. The A/C in the house makes for very pleasant days when it is hot outside. The back porch is the nicest we have Ever enjoyed. Five adults were very comfortable here. We will definitely try to rent this cottage on our next trip to Chincoteague.

Detailed, thoughtful and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at Scott's place. We had a party of four adults and it had everything we might need for cooking, drinking, relaxing and visiting the beach. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Such a cute very welcoming little island cottage.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two children. (One adult child, other is ten) came to the island for the second year in a row. Last year we stayed at a hotel. I have been eyeing this cottage for over a year. It did not disappoint. We loved it all. Very fully stocked. We ate all our meals out on the screened porch. The outdoor shower was nice to get sand off from a day at the beach. There were some neighborhood cats that come to say hello. We will def be coming back next year. But next time we will come more prepared for the mosquitoes. Thank you so much for our wonderful stay!

Well-appointed cabin--great for fishermen!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is clean, modern and well-decorated. Main cabin has plenty of space with two bedrooms. Annex has one bed with a futon in the same room--I was a little confused on the layout from the description. Kitchen has everything you would likely need--we ate all of our meals for a week in the rental and wanted for nothing appliance or utensil-wise. Property is spacious and we had plenty of room for two trucks and fishing gear for four.

Real winner here is the deck. Spacious with a dinner table and coffee table. Screened off and a great place to enjoy cool fall Virginia nights. I don't think we spent anytime inside unless we were sleeping!

Scott was very responsive and dealt with any issues immediately. Can't go wrong here.
