Great weekend at Porpoise Cove

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time this weekend. Thank you for sharing your house with us. The house was very clean and nice. We had everything we needed and loved the underwater lights. We could see fish swim right by them. There were plenty of toys for our enjoyment. Large rooms and nice bathrooms. I was hoping for rain as it has a tin roof. Better yet, acorns! When the breeze came up, I thought a dump truck had opened above us. Reminded me of growing up in my grandparents farmhouse. We will definitely be back!

Best Vacation ever!!

  • 5 of 5

My family had one of the best vacations ever. The house is beautiful, fresh, modern, well equipped and comfortable. The yard, swimming pool area are big and roomy. We loved the dock out back for fishing, crabbing, and happy hour! We also made use of the canoe and kayaks in the cove. The house is located perfectly for sailing, which is one of our favorite activities. There is great bike riding around Fishing Bay and walking too. The owners are wonderful. They made sure our arrival and stay were perfect and so helpful if we had questions. Needless to say, we'll be back in 2017!!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this charming house to have one last trip before the kids went back to school - they loved it! This is a great place for adults and kids alike. The huge in-ground pool and all of the available kayaks were a hit with everyone. The house was very open, well equipped and beautifully decorated. Fresh caught crabs were abundant all week long. We will definitely rent this house again!

Peaceful, very private

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of renting this house in August. This is our 4th time using VRBO to find a vacation house and we were not disappointed. It's off the beaten path, so it's perfect if you want privacy. The house was adorable and totally updated. It was fully stocked with everything that you needed. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and nicely decorated. We loved the in-ground pool. We picked this place for it's privacy and that we could drive to Williamsburg VA for the day. Even with traffic it only took us an hour. (We drove to Busch Gardens twice during the week). The cove was beautiful. We canoed every day. The kids loved it. Julie and Kurt were a pleasure to deal with and answered any questions that came up. I highly recommend this place !
