About the property

Beachfront 4 bedroom home with 2 full baths. Sleeps 9

NEW FOR 2017! Tranquility is getting a makeover for the season:

The entire interior has been painted with "tranquil" colors!

We have also gone green. Shiny new solar panels now provide 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, 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. A second large bedroom awaits your guests. Next door is a game room complete with multi-game table and an oversize checkerboard table. 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!

Luxury Beachfront Home on Soft White Sand Beach
average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews

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!

Great Place~Clean-Quiet & Very Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent our 2nd year, and another wonderful week at Tranquility this past June 2016. We enjoyed our week very, very much! The beach house is beautiful inside and out. Great for entertaining, or relaxing and just listening to the amazing beach sounds. The upstairs balcony is also great for relaxing & Bay watching. The house is big enough that it allows family to "get away" for some quiet time once they've had a little to much time & fun together. The newer beach landscape creates a nice place to catch fish, and a safe zone for little swimmers. Bavon beach has the nicest, softest white sand to enjoy. The nearby town is very charming with a fun old fashioned ice cream parlor, unique shops, and a farmer's market. So much to do with fishing, paddle boats, and playing on the beach by day... and dates or family fun in town in the evening. We absolutely love this house and this beach town. The owners are great, friendly, and very quick to reply. I have never encountered a problem in working with them or any negative experience with the beach house. We have been extremely pleased with all aspects of our stay in Tranquility. We plan to return again, again for years.

Great Beach Getaway with College Girlfriends and Family

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tranquility. The weather cooperated and we were swimming on October 21! The owners could not have been more pleasant to deal with and the home and location were lovely. I have already recommended this home to friends.

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

Tranquility is wonderful, we had an amazing stay. The house is roomy and bright, clean, and beds were very comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped. The house is footsteps from the beautiful beach. We were there for a very hot week, and the breeze and water were so refreshing. There were a few other families on the long stretch of private beach, and everyone we encountered was very friendly. We rented paddle boards and kayaks through Chesapeake Bay Paddling, and I recommend them highly. They deliver and pick up right to the house for free. Great view from both decks. We saw many shooting stars in the evening and in the daytime bald eagles nesting nearby.

The town of Mathews is small, but has some nice little shops and a decent grocery store. We had dinner at Richardson's Cafe and it was very good with something for everyone. The Cobbs Creek Diner is nearby and is more of BBQ place than a diner, and very good as well.

The property owners are great to deal with, and very responsive to any questions that we had. Security deposit returned very quickly. Overall, a great stay, and hope we have the opportunity to return.

Tranquility is beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this beach house! Very clean with comfortable furniture and beds. Love the porch overlooking the bay. The owners are great to work with. The bay is peaceful and calm at low tide, and lots of fun at high tide. Great private beach with beautiful sand. Surf fishing and crabbing are great too! Absolute dream home! This is definitely our favorite house on Bavon Beach. We will return for years to come! Love it. Thank you for sharing it with our family!
