We had a wonderful time! The house has plenty of space and we really enjoyed spending time on the screened in porch. Beautiful yard with a ton of room for the kids to play. Thank you!!
Beautiful and roomy
We had a vacation with 8 adults and 5 children. The farmhouse has plenty of room and is very comfortable. The yard is huge and beautiful. The dock is great for crabbing and jumping off to go swimming.
Relaxing and Pretty
Lovely and comfortable home with a huge yard. It's completely private and in a nice neighborhood that is good for walking or jogging. It's one of those places that takes the stress away and recharges the battery. The kids and adults all really enjoyed it. If you want to decompress and catch up with old friends, this is a good place for it. The little towns in the area offer some antiques and some delicious seafood. We originally thought that we might take a day trip to Virginia Beach, but it turns out that it's two hours away. Didn't really miss it, though. On a side note, the home was also furnished with a lot of great books, including an early copy of Watership Down, for example, and a complete set of the OED. This made us happy.
The property is amazing. Loved being on the water. Kids and adults loved fishing, crabbing and float
This was our second year to have our family reunion at Bart's home. It is the perfect location for a large group that enjoys water activities, yard games, or just sitting on the porch. Some stayed in the house, some setup tents and others got motel rooms. It is the perfect location for a family reunion. We have already booked it for next year.
Susan's family is wonderful and I'm so glad they enjoy being here. We look forward to having them again!. It truly is a magical place, ideal for families and friends to gather, or for romantic weekends or personal solitude.
Beautiful property on the bay
Had an amazing time here with a group of eight other friends. Enough bedrooms for our crew, and a lot of common spaces. Felt very secluded, and we loved it. We floated around on tubes from the dock, played frisbee on the massive field in the backyard, and watched a storm come in from the shore. Kilmarnock is about a 10 minute drive and had everything we needed for groceries or a night out. Bart was super helpful and responsive. Highly recommended!
Wonderfully private, picture - perfect property!
We had a great time! The layout of the house was just right for us. All the amenities were more than adequate. We wanted to stay forever. Communication from both Homeaway and the owner was top notch, friendly and thorough. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
