About the Property
You have your own parking area right in front of the apartment!
Wash and Dryer, Dish Network TV, WIFI, Internet! As I have stated....YOU have your own parking space! This is the second driveway by the garage! You will see a white volkswagon in the drive in front of the garage. You want to drive straight in and this is the room where you will be staying! I can usually be found on the back deck if you should need me for anything!
You have free rein of the property and can come and go as you please. The kayaks are here for you to use, as well as the fishing poles! I do ask that you take a life jacket with you if you will be on the water. It is a safety issue and I want all of my guests to be safe.
The refrigerator in the apartment is a little small, but there is a standard refrigerator in the laundry room. This is available for you as well. The bait for fishing will be found in the freezer section of this fridge.
Yes, you can wash and dry your clothes while you are here. You also have a choice to dry the clothes in the dryer or, (my favorite) on the line and get that clean and fresh scent!
There is a key that is available to you so you can lock the door if you leave. It is a very safe place, but you may feel you need to lock the door. This is fine. Just let me know!
Grills on site to be used by you. It is a propane and charcoal grill! There is also a smoker! There have been MANY GREAT MEALS cooked on this grill and I am sure many more are coming!
There is a golf cart, that is (LEGAL TO DRIVE ON THE ROAD) available for you to use while you are here! As you have seen in many reviews, it is one of the most loved things at Thelma's Dawn! It is here for YOU! Of course there has to be a catch in operating the golf cart. You must be at least 15 years old to be permitted to drive it by yourself, UNLESS there is an adult riding with you! These are not my rules, but the rules of the community.
I like to load up the golf cart when I go fishing. I put the poles, cooler, bait, drinks and everything I will need to sit down on the beach for a long time. When I go fishing, I mean business!
The outside of the property is a 1&1/2 acre property. We have volleyball, horseshoes, CORN HOLE, (yes, I said it....CORN HOLE) and other games that you can play.....Just ask us! Remember....we are here to make your vacation as special and memory making as we possibly can!
We even have TENTS and AIR MATTRESSES that can be used in the event you have more people that want to join you on your vacation! There is a 2 person, 4 person and a 3 ROOM TENT! This thing is BIG!
Then you have to remember all of the FISHING, KAYAKING, SWIMMING, PRIVATE BEACH, BEAUTIFUL SUNSETS, BONFIRES and so much more! This is YOUR TIME!! I want you to LOVE IT HERE!
So I have been asked how I came up with the name "THELMA'S DAWN". Well, my mother passed away from cancer in 2007. Mom was 68 years old when she was called home. I had a sister, Dawn, who was called home at age 28. She was murdered in January1988. It was fitting to name this beautiful place after the two of them.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: I am a retired Paramedic and Lieutenant Firefighter for the City of Hampton, VA. I live with my husband, Rick, and our two parrots, Joey and Nikko. I am an outdoors lover and love to fish. We have bon-fires often and just enjoy the evenings and the sound of the waves as they crash along the shore line while looking at the stars above us. We have a fish pond in the yard, but these fish are just for admiring. I love to get around to talk to my neighbors and make sure they are all doing ok. I try to exercise as much as I can by walking on the beach and kayaking. There is a garden in the yard that Rick and I tend to. I love to can the vegetables for the Winter. So I have been asked how I came up with the name "THELMA'S DAWN". Well, my mother passed away from cancer in 2007. Mom was 68 years old when she was called home. I had a sister, Dawn, who was called home at age 28. She was murdered in January1988. It was fitting to name this beautiful place after the two of them. I have lived in this home since I was born, except for the 25 years I moved to Hampton, Virginia, in 1885, to take a job as a professional firefighter and went to school to become an Emergency Rescue Diver and Nationally Registered Paramedic. I was diagnosed in 1995 with Multiple Sclerosis, but continued to work in the fire department as an instructor of various Fire, Emergency Medical, Driving, CPR and Water Safety courses. I retired from the fire department in 2006 and moved back to the Eastern Shore, which I have always called my home! Having MS, I can not enjoy things the way I use to. I love the beach and the water, but due to MS, I cannot stay in the heat long. With this being said, I have felt that this property was being wasted, so I made the decision to renovate the attached garage into the apartment in the hopes that people could come and enjoy everything "Thelma's Dawn" offers! I am positive that you will love it as much as I do! I look forward to meeting you soon!
