This is our 3rd year with vacation rentals. We purchased the duplex fall 2014 and completed renovations spring 2015. The atmosphere is coastal woods (restful bald cypress tress line the driveway) with contemporary-style kitchen and baths (plus the original claw foot soaking tub that was just refreshed).
Our property is conveniently located at the crossroads of Cape Charles - an easy walk to "downtown", the beach, and across the street from Central Park. The duplex has a covered porch to enjoy your coffee in the morning overlooking the park (east) and a back deck with table/chairs, umbrella and new gas grill (west), overlooking the fenced-in back yard with outdoor shower. Final touches have just been completed on this style-conscious, comfortable, and cozy coastal weekly rental (right side of duplex; both sides available for summer rental). Please take a look at the photos to see the front and back outside, and each room.
Cape Charles is embraced by water on three sides: commercial town harbor and yacht center (south), public beach (west), and marina (north). It's a wonderful setting if you love the water! Park Place is 3 blocks from the beach (Bay Ave.) and 2 blocks from the shops on main street (Mason Ave.). We are a mile from Bay Creek's two signature golf courses by Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, with top ratings by Golf Digest. The area promotes eco-tourism opportunities, including kayaking (even kayak/wine-tasting trips to a local winery), fishing off the town pier, hiking, and birding. You can rent jet skis at the harbor, bicycles, and golf carts. The town often has festivals, planned recreational activities for children and adults, and sometimes shows, movies, or live bands in the Park. The Eastern Shore Birding and Wildlife Festival in early October - fall weather is great here! A walking Christmas Progressive Dinner tour has been held the Friday after Thanksgiving for close to 20 years. Year-round, Cape Charles has live theater performed by Arts Enter and others at the Palace Theater, art galleries, a Brown Dog ice cream shop, ladies upscale consignment, and beautiful spa to name a few of the attractions in town! We have good eateries and, if you like nostalgia, be sure to stop by the lunch counter at Rayfield's pharmacy at the corner of Mason Ave. and Fig. Street. Cape Charles Medical Center is located on Mason Ave. too. Be sure to park your car by BACKING IN on the new angled parking on Mason Ave. FYI, tickets are being issued (and the speed limit in town is 25 mph).
For those who like buying local, seasonal, organically-grown vegetables and fruit can be purchased at Pickett's Harbor Farms south of town.
This 1925 duplex has beautiful soft light from tall windows and a great dining room to gather. Couples, small groups of friends, and families who want to slow down, go to the beach and the park, and relax in this walk-able small town should feel right at home. The kitchen is well and newly equipped, with upscale dishes and serving pieces if you like to entertain, two coffee makers (one is a French press), electric and stovetop teapots, stainless appliances, and an electric griddle for the times when a big breakfast and pancakes for all is just the right thing (even though you might not make all that food at home)!
Free WiFi internet is provided and a new 40" flat screen TV, blue-ray player and surround sound are in the living room.
Park Place is is adjacent to the park and playground (see photo), and the kitchen has a high chair, or youth chair if the tray is removed, plus children's dishes are provided.
Bedrooms: 1 with a king size bed, 1 with a double bed and 1 with 2 twin-size beds. The living room sofa is a double futon bed for extra sleeping space. Linens are new!
Some beach items are provided to lighten the load of your travel here (8 beach towels, 6 beach chairs, 1 boogey board, beach umbrella, beach cart, plus 2 fishing poles and crab nets courtesy of a recent guest).
There is a stacking washer-dryer in the kitchen, plus a few DVDs, games, and books in the dining room bookshelf, along with a few toys/puzzles and potty for young children. Bring your DVDs, CDs, and digital music (iPods, etc.) to enjoy on the TV and surround sound system. For dogs approved in advance, a dog bed and bowls are provided too (a $50 pet cleaning fee will be charged). There is an outdoor shower and small, fenced-in back yard.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

This is a perfect rental for a beach week for a couple, a few friends, or family with young children. The park is across the street (great for running and walking). The Cape Charles beach has a lot of sand for children to play and, because it fronts the Chesapeake Bay, seldom any breaking waves. Walk to the beach and the main street for shopping, restaurants, bar, gourmet food shop, galleries, antique shop, and spa. No stop lights and little traffic - this is where you can slow down and relax, enjoy the family and/or friends, and have the simpler, slower placed life style of the 50s!
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We chose to move to Cape Charles from the hustle of northern Virginia in 1997, and raised our son here. Cape Charles offers a very nice quality of life, it's like going back in time 40 or 50 years, and has a great mix of people from all over.
Why the Owner Chose Cape Charles, VA, USA:
Cape Charles is a lovely town right on the Chesapeake Bay, and just short 45 min. drive from Norfolk International airport, and you don't have to worry about leaving extra time for traffic to make your flight! Park Place is a super location - away from the busy (during the summer) Bay Avenue by the beach, and "downtown" on Mason Ave. - but only an easy walk of 3 blocks from each. Being across the street from the beautiful Central Park - it's great for walking the path any time of day, with a playground for children. When there are concerts and festivals in town, they are often in the park.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We updated this property so it would be pleasant for our own family members. It is more than "just a rental" in terms of pleasant surroundings, pretty things, some modern style, and convenience. It's a place we might like to rent ourselves, or have our son live in.
