  • Incredible! Waterfront home away from home.

    "I’m pretty sure our leaving is a temporary thing. We love the crab shack, a beautiful ‘home away from home’ for any of us lucky enough to find it. It far exceeded any expectations. Olive oil for cooking? Yes. Great knives and pans? Yes. Comfy bathrobes? Yes. In fact it’s so perfect it's made us rethinking living in Matthews. Perhaps Williamsburg will be a better all-around fit and the Crab Shack will become our new waterfront home. Stay tuned. We have such wonderful memories of our stay there… one evening as I was cooking dinner my husband asked me to come out into the darkened garden. It was alight with fireflies.  So nice to have the family dogs nearby. Gentle and sweet. Helped as we were missing our cat. Karla and Dave have thought of everything to make you immediately comfortable and at ease. They are amazing hosts. We really love this place."

  • Best Vacation Ever!

    "Our family of 12 had a wonderful time at Grand View! We enjoyed the spacious house and room to spread out for all--loved the 2 living room areas with flat screen TVs and the FABULOUS master suites on the first floor both with big flat screen TVs. The kitchen was very spacious with a great view of the water and dock. We hung out on the big back porch in late into the evenings and played corn hole on the back lawn overlooking the water. The kids (ages 11-21) loved loved the pool and spent day and night there--lots of pool toys already there. We had older teens who enjoyed the tennis court too! We docked our boat and the guys went fishing out in the Bay everyday and everyone fished and crabbed from the pier too. We had a fish fry one night with all the fish and crabs! The grounds were beautifully maintained! The caretaker was wonderful and even brought us fresh eggs.We went to nearby Gloucester and Mathews for our shopping needs and checked out some of the small shops downtown and had dinner at Willoughby's on the Rappahannock River in White Stone one night ---outstanding seafood and service! This was a peaceful quiet vacation and the kids never wanted to leave the property! I Highly Recommend Grand View to all who want to enjoy spending time with family and friends! Thank You Cathy Leitz (owner) for everything you did to make our vacation the BEST EVER!!! We are already making plans to return next year!"

  • Beautiful haven

    "The Scanlons have created a beautiful haven in Mathews County, VA. Our first impression was that this was the most immaculate vacation rental we have ever stayed in! The Fishhouse has everything a family could need for a wonderful vacation. We fished, crabbed, swam, kayaked, road bicycles, watched movies, & slept like babies. We took day trips to OBX, Williamsburg, Yorktown, & Busch Gardens. Time in Mathews has a way of melting the weariness if the world away!"

  • Extremely Relaxaing environment!!

    "This was our first time staying at the Blue Heron House, but it won't be our last. My husband was looking for a relaxing getaway for his 42nd birthday and the location didn't disappoint. We've stayed at other properties on VRBO in the past and this home is definitely in our top 3. The house is decorated beautifully with beach motif all through out, no detail was spared. The views were beautiful!! We took 3 other couples along with us and the house accommodated us all comfortably. It was nice to have 3 cooked meals a day around the table, hang out by the pool, sit out on the deck to read and tan. This home is just what we needed to shut our minds down from work for a few days. The towels and linens were of great quality. Susan, the owner was very pleasant, laid back and responsive to our questions, and she made the check in and check out process really easy, which I appreciated as I only had about 3 weeks to pull together the celebratory weekend. All of our friends were impressed, and was so glad that it was only an hour drive away and that we didn't have to catch a flight back after such a relaxing weekend. They all want us to make this a yearly trip. I must mention we also rented the boat for a day- Well worth it!! The view of all the homes along the bay were astonishing, and then to come back and have crabs lined up in the crab pots to cook, was just icing on the cake!! In case you can't tell, we had a great time, in only 3 days!! Highly recommend to anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of life!!"
