This beautiful beach house is located on the water, but also has a boat dock on a protected cove with crab pots if you want to catch/cook fresh bluecrabs. You’ll love the place because of its coziness, vaulted ceilings, the views of the Rappahannock River, the dock (if you have a boat or want to fish) and the private beach - you'll have 1/4 mile of private beach entirely to yourself and your family. And, of course, this beautiful beach house is perfect for couples and families (with kids).

About Michael Brice
I love the being on the beach, going fishing, and enjoying the privacy that is afforded me here on the Rappahannock River. However, I also travel extensively - which allows me to share this beautiful home on a very few select weeks during the year. If you spend time out here - you'll see why it's a special place to spend time and relax.
Why Michael Brice chose Topping
You're not going to find another property that has a private beach, a dedicated boat dock that is harbor protected, and a panoramic view like you'll see here. And the privacy is spectacular. I suggest you drive out some time and take a look - you won't be disappointed.
What makes this House unique
You can fish for trophy Rock fish (Striped Bass), you'll see osprey and bald eagles, and witness some of the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets anywhere on the East Coast.

Beautiful House in a Beautiful Location!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sandy Groins! Michael is a great host, providing us detailed information about the property and surroundings. He's also very responsive with email or phone communication. The house was clean as a pin and the kitchen was well equipped for all our cooking and dining needs. Our group of 6 felt very comfortable in the open layout of the house, with plenty of room to spread out. The porch is just amazing, as we were able to take in the wonderful view and enjoy the breeze without any concern for bugs, as it's completely screened in. The beach is 100% private and we saw some spectacular sunrises and sunsets! Unfortunately we didn't catch any keeper size fish, but caught plenty of crabs off the boat house deck. And if you like kayaking, there's plenty of water to explore. We had a fantastic vacation and hope to return someday.
I hate to write a review, I don't want anyone else staying at this house.
The owner is attentive and concerned that you have a good time. Our family enjoyed the visit and hope that we will be able to return.
Just can't express how well the owner treated us through the whole process. Not an owner..a gracious host.
Michael was an outstanding rental owner. He was truly concerned about our having a good time while we were at his home. We had everything we needed and more. He even had crab cages baited for us!
He was available at all times returning calls and answering texts within about an hour!
The home was perfectly clean! Perfectly!
It is a beautiful home with plenty of room for our family of 8 with space for more. The view is outstanding.
If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful place to get away from it all I highly recommend this home.
The ONLY drawback was that we could not swim because of jellyfish. We unfortunately picked a week when they were most active. I don't think this is a problem at other times.
