About Pam and Bruce

We are long time residents of Virginia Beach, who grew up in the Hampton Roads area and love the quiet and beauty of Cape Charles. It has been a dream of our to have a home near the water, and we fell in love with this house.

Pam and Bruce purchased this house in 2016

Why Pam and Bruce chose Cape Charles

My husband, " the Captain", loves to fish and boat when he is not on his Merchant Marine vessel, so Captain's Quarters is in a perfect spot for him. I love to work on old houses and furniture, so it is perfect for me as well!

What makes this house unique

We love the neighborliness of Cape Charles and the things there are to do nearby. The beach is clean, wide, and uncrowded, perfect for all ages. As owners, we can be close enough by to maintain the house and be available if our guest should need something or have an emergency. It is our wish that our guests enjoy our home as much as we do!

A wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, and a couple of friends stayed at Captain's Quarters for a quick weekend getaway. We have stayed in a number of very nice rentals in Cape Charles, and this one might well have been the best we have stayed in yet! It is a beautiful house with loads of character, and Pam and Bruce have put a lot of attention into the details. All rooms were well furnished and well appointed, the kitchen was well supplied, and the house was immaculately clean. And there were tons of thoughtful touches throughout. Pam was responsive, communicative, and helpful before, during, and after the stay - but of course never intrusive.

It was an excellent stay, and I hope to return before too long. I would recommend Captain's Quarters to anyone!

Lovely stay at Captain's Quarters

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four nights in early June. The house was even more welcoming than advertised. This was a three generations trip and there was plenty of room to spread out. The house was well equipped with lots of extras - bikes, beach chairs, kitchen supplies, etc. My dad had great fun playing chauffeur to everyone on the golf cart. Communication with our hosts was always quick and easy. As for Cape Charles, it is a beautiful little town with shops, restaurants and a lovely bay beach with white sand. It is a very walkable/bikable town for some low-key fun. We hope to make this an annual trip!

Captains Quarters is a great place to stay in Cape Charles. It had lots of historic charm.

  • 5 of 5

The home is well equipped with everything you need. It is spacious, the furniture is comfortable, and there is plenty of seating for dining. The weather was great for spending time outside on the deck. There was plenty of room for our group of 9 people. We would definitely stay at Captain’s Quarters again.
