We fully enjoyed our stay in this home, for our very first visit to the island. The home was very comfortable and clean. It had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at WHIMS. The home was nicely furnished and had everything we needed to feel at home. The kitchen had everything we needed. The owners were responsive when we first inquired about the property and provided all the information we needed. We didn't have to worry about anything and were able to have a relaxing vacation. We had a great time at Chincoteague. There is so much to do and see. Next time we go, we'll try to schedule it when there is a rocket launch at the nearby NASA station.
Perfect for 2-4 people
My husband and I loved staying at this house, it really was like coming home every day. At the north end of the island, it's away from the crowds, but that's less than 5 minutes and a perfect place for bikes or mopeds if you rent them. I loved reading on the back porch every afternoon and wish we had taken kayaks to launch...maybe next time. The kitchen has all the essentials, including a tea kettle. We had no problem with the WiFi so the new modem must be working just fine. The master bed was super comfy, best sleep I've had in a long time!
Enjoyed our stay at WHIMS
My family and I (2 adults and 2 children ages 10 and 13) stayed at WHIMS in early July. I loved sitting in the screened back porch every day. We brought our kayaks and really enjoyed being able to take off right on the property. The gulf was only a couple of hundred feet away and we kayaked for hours. The house is in a quiet neighborhood but only 5 minutes from main street where there was shopping and restaurants. The mosquitoes on the island was a bit of a nuisance, especially on the wildlife refuge. We always had bug spray with us. I highly recommend WHIMS if you are looking for a home away from home while on vacation.
A Great Week
My wife, 14-yr old daughter and I stayed at WHIMS in late June. It was the perfect size for us - plenty of room inside for cooking and eating, and even better, a screened in porch to enjoy time outside without having to deal with the mosquitoes. Knowing that we had the dock in our backyard, we rented a canoe for the week (Old Town Canoe) and enjoyed taking that out pretty much every day to explore the area and catch crabs for dinner. We took a boat tour of the island (Saltwater Pony Tours) and got to see a lot of the wildlife, including the ponies. We spent time at the beach, climbed the lighthouse and ate at many of the local restaurants, food trucks and ice cream shops - all great! Best of all was being able to come back to a great house, fully stocked with everything needed to really enjoy the week! WHIMS is definitely deserving of a 5 star review.
We had an excellent time at Whims! The home was lovely, clean, and unbelievably stocked with items for the kitchen. We could not have asked for anything more. The charming location was a perfect getaway next to the canal and the view of the sunset was breathtaking!
