Property type house

About the property

Beachfront 4 bedroom home with 2 full baths. Sleeps 9

NEW FOR 2018! Tranquility is getting a makeover for the season! We have screened in the first floor deck to make outdoor dining, beach watching and general relaxation bug free! We have also upgraded the outdoor dining table to a large wooden dining set with 8 comfortable modern dining chairs.

Our 2017 upgrades are still looking great: The entire interior was been painted with "tranquil" colors and we have gone green with solar panels now providing most of our electricity.

A beachfront oasis where the Chesapeake meets the Atlantic awaits your arrival. Come down and relax on two large decks overlooking a mile-long private white sandy beach with views to the eastern shore!

Built in 2010, our home boasts all of the modern amenities. Downstairs is a spacious kitchen with stainless steel appliances overlooking the large living and dining room. Through the sliding doors is the outdoor dining area with a gas grill and seating for 8. You will also find a bedroom with a queen bed, a second bedroom with twin-size bunk beds, and a laundry room with full-size washer and dryer. Finally there is a full bath with a custom stained glass window.

Upstairs you will find the master bedroom with cathedral ceilings and custom stained glass window, opening to a deck. Enjoy magnificent ocean views and the beautiful Virginia sunrises right from your bed. A second large bedroom awaits your guests. Next door is a game room for your enjoyment. Both bedrooms have king-size beds with a day bed in the game room. There is a full bathroom on the second floor.

With the beach at your doorstep the water activities are endless. The beach is very family friendly, with shallow warm waters and gentle waves. Located only an hour from Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens. Enjoy local eateries, antiquing, and wineries right down the road. Of course, when on the Chesapeake, you can do as the locals do and go bird watching, fishing and crabbing.

Stick your feet in the sand and soak in the sun at our secluded beach getaway!

Clean, secluded, and a wonderful place to refresh and relax.

  • 5 of 5

The connecting nature preserve is the added bonus to a wonderful stay on Bavon Beach. Bring your kayak and venture the light house and enjoy the most southern point on middle peninsula by your lonesome. Truly a wonderful home to relax.

Lovely house and location, the owners were a pleasure. Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 4 of 5

The house is in great condition and the location at the beach is beautiful and private. Steven and Robbie are very responsive to questions and were conscientious hosts.

Mathews town has plenty of great, convenient places to eat and we never had to wait. We have always wanted to be away from all the activity on most vacation beaches and Tranqulity is as 'away from it all' as we've ever been able to find.

The beach is BEAUTIFUL especially the sand to the south of the rocks. The 1/2 mile walk to the point is well worth the effort.

The only negatives (if they can be called that) are: The layout of the bedrooms is a little odd in that upstairs you have to walk through the master bedroom to get to the back bedroom & game room, and on the first floor you have to walk through the bedroom with the bunk beds to get to the laundry. The only other issue is the beach erosion due to the rip rap. Even though the rocks are keeping the sand from washing away, they create a beach right in front of the house that is a little mucky at low tide.

Those two things being said, we had a great vacation would not hesitate to book the house again.

Fantastic and away from it all!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! It had everything as described. Having the private beach and having it so close to the house was a huge benefit with the kids. The house has spacious bedrooms and a modern, open feel. We ate most of our meals out on the back deck to enjoy the wonderful view. If you're looking for a quiet peaceful vacation, away from it all, this is the place for you. The owners were extremely helpful and quickly answered all our questions about the house and the area. We couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. Relaxing and fun!!

Very Private Beachfront Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We loved our week at Bavon Beach! This house is beautiful and well maintained and we had everything we needed for the week. The only downside is that the beach directly in front of the house is not really swimmable due to the erosion of the sand, build up of mud and seaweed and tons of sharp dangerous rocks in the water (several of us sliced our feet within the first hour of arriving). We avoided this area entirely for our stay. Thankfully, there is plenty of beach space to the right of the house which was only a 100 yard walk or so from door to water. If you are looking for privacy, this is THE best place. The mile long private beach has over a dozen houses on the water but we only saw 2 other families our entire stay! And that is only when we went for a walk. We had a huge beach area entirely to ourselves the entire week. It was blissful. We also took a day to visit Yorktown and Williamsburg, which were a very easy @ 1 hour drive away. Oh, and I can't forget to mention the great bicycling, too! Our entire family loved this vacation and would not hesitate to return!

Fabulous, awesome vacation house.

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous location. The view of the bay at sunrise was incredible from both decks. The whitest, softest sand I have ever seen. The amenities in the house are excellent. All communications with the owners were quickly, politely responded to. We enjoyed our stay in the newly painted vacation home and would love to return when we can. Thank you for sharing!
