About Jim & Ann O'Connor

We are retired PA educators who grew up in York, PA. We are both graduates of York Catholic High School. Jim did his undergrad at Indiana State University and Ann did hers at York College. Together we have 53 years of teaching experience.

Ann was first introduced to Chincoteague by her father over thirty-five years ago. As many say, it was love at first sight. During our summer vacations there, we would dream about owning a place of our own.

After putting three sons through college, we made the leap and bought Sweet Retreat. We enjoyed every moment we could spend there. It was our happy place.

In the summer of 2016, we sold our permanent residence and became full time Islanders.

Jim & Ann O'Connor purchased this house in 2008

Sweet Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This delightful 3-bedroom, 2-bath home is located on the quiet end of Main Street, surrounded by canals, ponds, marsh grasses, and abundant wildlife. The house is well-appointed. Everything you need is already there, except for personal items (sheets, towels, and toiletries). Sip coffee on the front sun deck or the screened back porch. Build a fire in the fire pit and eat at the picnic table, or dine in the kitchen nook or the full dining room. The property has ample parking and is convenient to everything in town. The landlords are fully cooperative and totally nonintrusive. We couldn't have picked a better vacation home, and we couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more. Jim & Sue

The perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here in the spring and realized how comfortable and private was. Even though a couple of days of the weather did not cooperate, having this cottage close to everything made the difference. The owners do a great job to make sure all the needs for a relaxing stay are included. Thanks to the personal touch and attention by the owners I will be booking again and again.

This property was clean, comfortable and perfect for our vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is neat, and clean. We liked the fact that it is located outside of town, but is just minutes away from the downtown, restaurants, the nature preserve, boat tours and other attractions. We really enjoyed sitting out on either of the front and rear porches. The screened porch in the rear has a nice view of a marsh and pond. Perfect for relaxing with morning coffee, or hanging out after a day of activities. The kitchen is large, well laid out and had everything we needed. The Chincoteague area is an amazing habitat for many kinds of birds, dolphins, and of course, the wild ponies, which we were able to view several times by taking a couple of the boat tours that are available. We learned a lot. We would recommend this property to family, friends and anyone who would be considering a visit to Chincoteague.

Wonderful property - one of the best maintained rentals I've been to.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great visit- the property was charming and well-outfitted having everything we needed and more! The decor had a tasteful beach theme and was a pleasant surprise how well it was done! We really enjoyed our stay and plan to return. The screened-in porch was our favorite room and a blessing allowing us to enjoy outside in spite of mosquitoes!

Cozy and Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect rental for our family of 4! Had plenty of supplies and was clean. I've been vacationing in Chincoteague since I was a child and this is the best rental we've ever stayed in! Can't wait to return next year :-)
