vacation rental description

One Block to the Beach

We are ONE BLOCK from a pristine sandy beach on the Chesapeake Bay!  How long does it take to get there? Google youtube southern breezes a walk to the beach and take a walk to the beach! So many folks tell us that after a long drive, arriving at a house they've never seen before, when they walk inside SOUTHERN BREEZES the first word they utter is 'Wow!' So we call it the 'Wow factor' --how loud the 'Wow' expresses how charming, spacious, and clean the house is.

Cape Charles is a Victorian village, and our grand old four-level brick duplex epitomizes the character of the town. The architectural style is American Foursquare, and the house is symmetrical front and back and side to side. Built in 1923 for two families, that's the way SOUTHERN BREEZES remains today.  Choose between the NOR'WESTER (right hand side) or the NOR'EASTER (left hand side).  Planning a family reunion? Rent both sides and accommodate up to 12 adults plus their children.

This is a BIG house! Over 4,000 square feet, each side includes a living room and front porch, dining room, eat-in kitchen and half bath on the first floor. An easy walk up the grand staircase leads to three bedrooms and a full bath. 

There's also a lower level laundry area with sink and shower and storage for bicycles. 

Each bedroom has a TV with DVD, in addition to a 36" Sony in the living room (with DVD/VHS) as well as dining room, kitchen, and sleeping porch. Cable includes ESPN, Turner Classic Movies, CSPAN, etc. Nice selection of DVD/VHS titles.

NEW FOR 2012: Online movies & music! Thousands of titles from Netflix, Amazon, Cracker, etc., plus Pandora Radio on the big TV screens -- all at no extra charge!

And yes, we have high-speed WIFI Internet! 

The kitchen has seating for 6, and there is also a formal dining room that seats up to 8.

Each room has its own window AC, so everybody can be happy at their own preferred temperature. Or, open the windows and feel the breezes! The bedrooms have ceiling fans and transoms over the doors.

There's a shower/bath on the second floor, another shower in the lower level laundry room, and a private hot water shower outside (our favorite).

Updated kitchen has icemaker, dishwasher, microwave, TV, and seating for 6. 

Two new bicycles, and some old ones too.

Full-size washer and dryer in the laundry room.

The entire house has just been repainted in fresh, cheerful colors. Latest additions: "Cracker Barrel" rockers on front porch, stainless steel pots and pans in the kitchen, and a gas grill in the back yard!

This House Has It All

Historic charm, perfect location to beach and town, and REASONABLE RATES -- all geared toward families looking for a relaxing, spacious, clean but not too fancy old homestead for gatherings up to 6 adults plus their children and the family dog.

To make your stay as easy as possible, we provide everything conceivable: Sheets and towels, soap, dishes, silverware, and pots & pans are a given. Add to that bicycles, beach gear, crab traps, charcoal grill and picnic table plus free nationwide telephone service. And for the couch potatoes we have shelves of books and magazines -- plus, the town library is a 5-minute walk away!

NO SMOKING: This is a requirement of occupancy!

All reservations are secured by credit card, and a 50% deposit will reserve your week, with balance charged on arrivval. Or ask us to schedule interest-free monthly payments. If plans change, don't worry -- we are happy to refund your deposit in full. There are always last-minute renters eager to find a vacancy.

PARENTS -- This area is perfect for children! The bay is calm and shallow. There's a huge park and playground just two blocks up Monroe Avenue. And with minimum traffic and the shallow Bay, you can relax and let your older children roam and bike the town at will. There's so much to do that they will never be bored!

activities and attractions in Cape Charles Virginia

No Place Quite Like It

We are two families who recently purchased SOUTHERN BREEZES with the aim of retiring here. We're new to Cape Charles, but after living all over the world, we can say we've never seen a place quite like it -- the town that time forgot! We are ONE block from the beach. Maybe we're biased, but we think Monroe Avenue is the best street to live on in Cape Charles! It starts at the beach, runs to Central Park, and stops, so there's no through traffic! Almost every place is an easy walk: Kelly's Gingernut Pub & Restaurant, various gift/arts/antique shops, coffee shops, sandwich shops, public library, Post Office, churches, Veneto's Pizza, Watson's Hardware, Palace Theatre, Bailey's Bait & Tackle. Rayfield's Pharmacy and soda fountain might take an extra 5 minutes' walk, as would the public marina. And you might drive to Aqua Restaurant in Bay Creek, a mile away. Golf courses are 5 minutes away.
