Great Stay on the Chesapeake

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay on the Northern Neck, and just loved the view. We had 7-10 adults at various times in the week and had plenty of room. We really appreciated and made great use of the full kitchen and the house was well stocked.. The sun-room and deck were both beautiful. We were a bit bummed out that there were SO many jelly fish (end of July), but we enjoyed kayaking on the bay (with kayaks we brought). With all the jellies and the extreme heat the week we were there, we were so grateful to have the pool, and spent most of our hours there. We did lose power twice, though only briefly, and during a big storm there was a ceiling leak (which has since been repaired). Mark and Val were very communicative when we had the power outages and leak, and they ended up being only minor and brief issues. Wifi was a plus! The pool and the views were definitely the highlight of our stay. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Perfect for our family get together.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at your beach house. It ticked all the boxes. From BBQ's, to beach fires, crabbing and avoiding jellyfish!! You have to try the crab cakes from the local fish store (only opens Friday's and Saturdays). Amazingly good.

The children absolutely loved having the pool and were in it most of the time , when we weren't out exploring. There were 10 of us and there is plenty of room in the house, didn't feel crowded at all.

The airconditioning was an absolute saviour!!!!!

It's remote setting was great, the noises reminded me of being in the Amazon.

Would love to return one day but it's a long old way from the UK :-).

Thank you for sharing your house with us Mark and Val. Xx

A Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house is beautiful- You've done a fabulous job with all the remodeling. I really appreciated the a/c , the instant ice maker (!) and all the skylights. Steven and Griselda are taking good care of things and we wanted for nothing!

Relaxation with a view

  • 5 of 5

My wife, family and friends all had a great time at the beach house. Mark, Val and the people they have looking out for the house were all very helpful and the property looked amazing upon arrival. Waking up and having coffee on the deck overlooking the pool and the bay never got old. If you're looking for a quiet, peaceful vacation with amazing views and a warm pool than this is the place to go. I hope to visit again in the years to come.
