About the property

4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath Beach Home With Wide Bay Views On The Beach

During the summer months we prefer to rent by the week, from Friday to Friday or Monday to Monday. If this isn't possible please send us a message and we will try our best to accommodate.

Our cozy, modern Beach House is situated 100' from the water with a private beach extending hundreds of feet. The house has incredible views overlooking the widest portion of the bay from every room with huge bay windows off the two-story family room.

Experience breathtaking sunrises over the water each morning and gaze at the stars without the bright lights of the city. Sip coffee from the screened-in porch in the mornings, spend time on the beach and in the water during the day, and gather at the firepit for s'mores and storytelling in the evenings.

The Bay has a soft, sandy bottom in only 2 to 5 feet feet of water. It's the perfect environment for children to play and swim. Included with the rental are plenty of floats and 3 ocean kayaks to explore the surrounding area. For a $100 rental fee there are 2 standup paddleboards available as well.

All the beds in the house have luxurious mattresses, 3 of them being memory foam! The house has a master with a king bed and large bathroom on the first floor, a second master with a king bed and a bathroom on the second floor, then 2 more bedrooms with queen mattresses and a shared bathroom also on the second floor. For additional guests the first floor also has a full-size futon in its own room and a queen memory foam pullout sleeper.

Included with your rental are access to our three ocean kayaks with open-tops. One double-seater and two single-seaters.

Additionally, we do have two stand-up paddleboards that are available for a rental fee. The cost is $100 for the entirety of your stay. Send us a message and we will give you the access code, the rental fee will be deducted from your deposit.

Bring your binoculars and camera! The Chesapeake Bay is well-known as a bird lovers paradise. From the house you can watch several local osprey, great blue heron, bald eagles and pelicans diving and catching fish. Some mornings we've even seen pods of dolphin passing by. In the winter months you can listen to the roar of a thousand Canadian geese arriving together to spend the night near shore. Cardinals, blue birds and other songbirds also abound among the bayberry trees, magnolias, huge azaleas, crepe myrtles, dogwoods, and towering lob lolly pines on the home's 7 acres of property.

Local attractions include: boating, fishing, vineyards, golf, shopping, antiques, art, Irvington Farmers Market (monthly: June-Nov), drive to one of 3 towns (White Stone, Irvington and Kilmarnock) in ‘The Golden Triangle’ within a 10 mile radius. Swimming Pool and Tiki Bar with live music (Friday, Saturday nights during Summer) less than 1 mile away at Windmill Point Marina.

Less than 1 hour to Richmond and Williamsburg (including Busch Gardens). Less than 3 hours to DC.

Richmond Interational Airport (RIC) is 1 hour away

Norfolk Interntional Airport (ORF) is 1.5 hours away

Williamsburg/Newport News (PHF) is 1 hour away

Weekly and monthly rates available.

This is a quiet area and a wonderful place to unwind. Our house is most suitable for gentle and respectful family getaways.

Very nice house and private beach.

  • 4 of 5

House is amazing and very clean. Could use some dressers for clothing in bedrooms only suggestion for owner. Had to live out of our suitcase in master bedroom. We felt as if we were on our own little piece of paradise with the private beach and remoteness of Henry's Island. The only drawback was the ferocity of the insects, flies and such. We couldn't really use the fire pit like we had intended because of the bugs. But the listing did make mention of that and it could be better in a less rainy summer perhaps. The screened in porch was appreciated!! Kayaks were a really nice amenity. Overall a really nice property!

Tranquil private getaway

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed at this beautiful spacious house on Fleets Island the first week of August 2018. My parents stayed in the downstairs master bedroom, my sister and her husband stayed in the upstairs master, and me and my husband shared the other two rooms with our kiddos. We loved the layout of the house and everyone had a wonderful time! We loved that we were steps to the bay and our 5 year old and 3 year old stayed in the water from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day. For naps, we kept my 2 month old in a bassinet in the living room and used a video monitor that reached to our setup in the sand, which was awesome! We also kayaked and used the tubes in the water daily. We mostly cooked at the house in the beautiful open kitchen, but we ventured out one night to the Sandpiper which was fantastic. We were a little nervous about mosquitos, but found that we didn’t get any bites during the day and we’d wear bug spray in the late afternoon.

The house had everything we needed, from towels and sheets to food spices and board games. It was perfect for small children too.

All in all, a 5 star vacation! Thanks to Brad for his hospitality!

Secluded & very relaxing private vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We returned here recently with our sons and their families for our second year. The house is clean, and well situated to provide great views from every room, which have plentiful windows facing the bay.

We played lawn darts and Bocce ball in the yard and enjoyed the ping pong table under the house. We floated in the bay, and kayaked, too. We grilled some really delicious meals. The sandy beach and shallow waters are perfect for our grandchildren. We never saw jellyfish. The water temperature was fantastic, very refreshing. We saw dolphins this year, an osprey and a bald eagle.

A fire pit was fun in the evening - we used it while we were there for s'mores.

Beds are very comfortable and rooms are spacious. Cell phone service is limited, but while on vacation that is usually a bonus. We never turned the TVs on.

Lovely vacation spot, very private - has the feel of an island hideaway.

Wonderful place we had a really nice time.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to this property and we are very pleased with it. We had a great time and found local seafood and nice people all around. The property was great ...

everything was intact as described clean and nice. We have two children in elementary school age range and they had a great time playing on the beach. Zero complaints. Five stars all the way.

Very nicely done beach house on the bay, could not be happier

  • 5 of 5

This place is really nice. We arrived to a clean and clear place with memory foam beds for kids, nice king beds and suites for adults. It is perfect for us. Two adults and two kids. We have kids that are 3 and 5 and there were some toys and a closet in the kids room doubles as an additional playroom. We had the good fortune to stumble across a friendly man that directed us to a marina where we bought fresh farmed oysters from the oyster farm in view of the house. Appliances all worked, hot water took a minute to come on but was HOT and plentiful if used wisely. Screened in porch was appreciated. Kayaks in decent condition, ping pong table in basement was fun.... The kitchen is REALLY nice with good pots and pans, utensils are great, washing machine works great, everything in good order. We have loved this place. Sorry to be going home. Set your expectations to "really fun vacation house" and be pleased. Movie selection good, and the universal remote worked flawlessly.

Better than advertised!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived and found the place was stocked with stuff that we had fretted about packing. Clean, well thought out house design and location that's hard to describe unless you're there. We had some bad weather 2 days but found plenty to do in nearby Kilmarnock and Deltaville as well as the games under the house in the garage. The owner was responsive to every question we had and even overnighted a coffeemaker to us when the existing one wasn't working. We're already talking about going back again sometime. Our little ones loved it and were never bored. Good times had by all and a spot I'd recommend to anyone.
