About Catherine McCoy
Hi! And thanks for stopping by the Beach Bungalow. During each year, I personally use the Beach Bungalow as an owner occupied home and as a vacation home. By living in the home, I can assure you that everything you need to enjoy life at the beach is at your fingertips. From beach chairs to kayaks to a hot tub to white sand, this house is the epitome of life at the beach.
Catherine McCoy purchased this Bungalow in 2006

Cute little beach house, literally steps away from a beautiful quiet beach. Well equipped house.
It was a nice relaxing stay, so comfortable, warm and welcoming.
Great week on the bay!
Cate was great to work with, very responsive. Everything with the home was as described in the posting. We could not believe how empty the beach was. The bay changed from gentle lapping waves, good for kayaking to.boggie boarding waves. The family got to spend a lot of time together without being disturbed. We loved Piglet too!
Stunning and truly relaxing
The house was an absolute dream! I would most definitely go back if I was given the opportunity, the neighbors were funny and marvelous people. But if there was one thing I could fix on the house it would be the door leading into the salmon room, otherwise it was a 10/10 relaxing stay. So many places to go sightseeing, you just had to catch the right temperature to do everything! The private beach was a true paradise being able to go down and read a book with your fellow dolphins, the water was so warm that you could walk right in and never want to get out! Beware the ghost crabs for they could pinch your feet and run away! The fish are very friendly and comfortable with you so much that they swim right up to you.
Beach Bungalow was heaven on earth!
Our family had the most amazing time here. Everything was neat & tidy and plenty of room for the 5 of us. We couldn't of asked for a better view of the Chesapeake Bay and the beach was perfect! The Forth of July was amazing with fireworks 360 degrees all around us. There was plenty to do in the area. The free public concert was an extra special highlight for my husband & myself.
Most Excellent Vacation with my Family!!
Dear Cate and Tom,
Reason being I have held off writing a review is purely selfish. I'm afraid that people will read this and book all of the times available so that we can not get in again in the future!
Not sure where to begin but here goes- The pictures of the "Beach Bungalow" are exactly the way it looks in person. Talk about immaculate. We were all very impressed with the details exuding hominess and the cleanliness as well. When they say there is everything there for a worry free vacation they mean it. We loved waking up and making breakfast, lunch and then grilling up dinner. The massive private beach is only a 30 second walk. We were happily surprised that the sand/dunes is literally right outside of the beach door. Doesn't show that in the pics on VRBO. While the beds could use a little upgrading we didn't have much trouble sleeping soundly after spending the day on the beach. We left behind some spices and cooking oils that we brought but felt compelled to leave them for the next lucky vacationers there. Cate and Tom, it was a true pleasure meeting you on our last day as we were packing up to depart. Your warmth and charm in your bungalow is obviously a reflection of yourselves. I would like to make a few suggestions: Applying window treatments in the yellow guest room. The way the sun settles it is sometimes too bright (nap time), and it does get very warm in there. The window treatments on the parlor windows would be perfect in there! Next, being foodies we are used to sharpen knives. Perhaps a knife sharpener? Also perhaps a small household hammer (nails needed to be hammered in on the picnic table next to fire pit). You may also want to check out little hidden wasps nest up in the corner of the eaves downstairs and up. Saw a couple but nothing that we were bothered with. All in all, everyone of us was blown away with your beach bungalow and yes Cate and Tom, we will be back! If there's any availability after this review.... gosh darn it!
We were so pleased to meet you and thrilled that you love our bungalow the way we do! Love the suggestions and will work them in.... Tom loves room darkening curtains and I'm quite the opposite so we always have a battle on window treatments LOL thanks again and hope to host you again soon!
This beach house was very clean and inviting.
This home was great, the owner let us squeeze in a short three day stay that was open between two other guest even though it was a minimum stay of a week(thanks for that). I though the yard areas were great, the kids could play in the sand right off the deck, the hot tub area was very private with a natural holly tree umbrella and the upper deck was the place to be to relax in the sun. The bedrooms had plenty of space and were very comfortable. You can tell the house is well maintained, the kitchen and bathrooms were great. Especially the main shower. All in all we didn't want to leave but that's okay because we will be going back!
