About Gwen Schiada

We designed and built this home - our dream home after losing our house in Hurricane Isabel in 2002. We are now embracing a new adventure and moving aboard our sailboat, Exodus, here on the Chesapeake Bay. We spent the last decade enjoying this very special home and are now excited to share it with others who will make their own wonderful memories here too!

Gwen Schiada purchased this house in 2004

Why Gwen Schiada chose Southern

We both love the water and dreamed of living on the Chesapeake Bay in a small quaint town. North Beach provides this with its walkable layout, cute shops and boardwalk and friendly people! You feel like you're a world apart from the hustle and bustle, but Washington, DC is just 35 miles away and Annapolis 30 minutes!

What makes this house unique

We built this house to maximize the water views from almost every window! The thoughtful design mirrors North Carolina Outer Banks beach homes which offer a reverse floor plan - the main living space is above most of the bedrooms to offer a panoramic experience. There is a wall of windows letting in natural light and creating the feeling that you part of the Chesapeake Bay. The vaulted ceiling and great room create an open, airy feeling, perfect for your vacation home stay! Please don't hesitate to call or email with any questions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Gwen...just wanted to let you know that my family and I really enjoyed our vacation and that was due in large part to your vacation rental...we loved the house and really enjoyed the small town feel of North Beach. It was really great visiting the big city, but not having to stay in the big city.

The house is amazing! The location is great-we walked to the beach and restaurants. The house was very clean and comfortable. The only negative we had was the outside grill nees to be updated/replaced. great experience!

Chesapeake Haven

  • 5 of 5

Chesapeake Haven was beautiful. There were almost 360 degree views of the water and we were just a couple of blocks from the boardwalk and the shops. The bedrooms were comfortable and luxurious. We had everything we needed. There were several steps to get into the house and then again to get to the living room and kitchen. This made for wonderful views but could be challenging for mobility impaired customers. Overall, we had a perfect stay and highly recommend this home.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, wonderfully appointed home In North Beach. Such great views. Perfect proximity to the things we love about the town: ice cream, candy store, boardwalk and the market. Gwen is such a caring and fantastic host, she hooked us up with great neighborhood info for the week of our stay.

Great stay... very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our vacation, and that was due in large part to Gwen's vacation rental on the Chesapeake Bay...we loved the house and really enjoyed the small town feel of North Beach. Our vacation was intended to be a Washington DC/Annapolis vacation with lots of sight seeing. It was really great visiting the big city, but not having to stay in the big city.
