Charming view

  • 5 of 5

The experience is one of the best I have ever had. We have a total of six people, four adults and two kids. We also have 2 dogs traveling with us. The house is quite spacious for all of us. All furnitures are well maintained. beds are so comfortable to sleep in. The best is still the view. With the beach just outside your window, you can enjoy the ocean view whenever you want.

Cindy is very friendly and helpful. During our stay, we made a couple requests and she got everything fixed within hours (temperature is so high this Feb so we ended up asking for air condition instead of heating). All in all, it was a wonderful stay.

Very cute and cozy. The location is perfect.

  • 4 of 5

This property was perfect for us. Cindy Lee was very helpful and accommodating to us. If you need anything at all she will make it happen very quickly. The location was perfect, right on the beach but not many people around at all. Easy access to many activity and restaurants. The only negative things I can say is the bathroom door upstairs doesn't lock and the in law suite would have been a little easier if there was access from inside the main house. Over all we were very pleased and will return.

Wonderful beach house!

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay at this house directly on the private beach. The view was fantastic and we had plenty of room for everybody. We brought our 2 dogs along this time and they enjoyed the nice beach too. Cindy responded very quickly when we couldn't find the life vests for the kayaks. Everything was clean and neat and my son even cooked on the gas grill some. We would definitely stay here again if we ever visit Virginia again.

A lovely cottage!

  • 4 of 5

Just right for a spring break get away! The cottage is just steps away from the water, and we were able to enjoy it with our children and our two dogs. The house is decorated very nicely, and the water is visible from most of the windows. Perfect for some R&R by the water!

Once inside and from the beach nice

  • 4 of 5

We arrived and from the street it looked a little sketchy but once inside it was great. Enjoyed our time here with family nearby. The only negative was lack of toilet paper and dish cleaner to wash tableware. Location was great and close to everything we wanted.

Would love to go back, however...

  • 4 of 5

I would love to give this rental my full approval because the owner was very responsive to all complaints and the location was amazing. We did have a few problems with the property. The downstairs was mildew smelly maybe in the summer that would not be an issue. The heat is funky very hot in bedrooms and cool in living areas. Which was ok if you left your bedroom doors open. But the deal breaker was one of the bedrooms was right next to the neighbors outside spot lights. The shades didn't prevent the bedroom from being as light as day. Otherwise I would definitely return. You are surrounded by ocean. A really beautiful location.
