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

We loved this house...everything about it. Location was perfect, house was clean, communication with Ann was always quick. Photos are great they show exactly what the home is like. We hope to stay here again, we absolutely loved it. Thank you for everything! And we were able to bring our dog, he loved it too.
Second time renting sweet retreat. House was clean and ready for our week long stay. Kids were sad we had to leave. We look forward to our next stay!
This property is just as it seems in the photos! Plenty of room for my family. Ann always immediately responded to any questions that I had. I would definitely stay here again!
Such a cute clean spacious place! The pear trees on the property are an added plus! We enjoyed the peaceful side of the island with the front porch being our favorite place to have our morning coffee! The bikes provided by the owner were in good working order and we were glad to have them. It was an easy ride to the shops . It was great having all the pamphlets for the restaurants and shops on the island. We also cooked and found the kitchen well stocked and had everything we needed to prepare a nice dinner as well. We all hope we can make it down again next year! We had a wonderful time in your place!
