About Valnora Leister and Mark Frazier
We live now in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley and have owned the beach house for more than 30 years. Our family has wonderful memories of summer vacations filled with beach-combing, swimming, bicycling, and fishing. We hope you'll enjoy a vacation there too!
Valnora Leister and Mark Frazier purchased this House in 1983
Why Valnora Leister and Mark Frazier chose Heathsville
The quality of the beach and the tranquil setting were what first drew us to Ophelia. The area has a wealth of history and opportunities for day trips on charter boats, ferries to nearby islands, and outings to memorable restaurants, museums and shops in Reedville, Kilmarnock, and Heathsville. Over the years, we've been able to add an upstairs deck, rooms, and amenities to the beach house. It is a place for fun and rest – and hard to leave!
What makes this House unique
Some of our favorite activities are relaxing on the upstairs deck and watching the osprey, bald eagles, pelicans, and dolphins go by. Views of sunrises over the Bay and sunsets on the Potomac are gorgeous. The salt water pool is easy on the eyes and a great way to cool off after hikes or long walks on the beach. An outdoor barbecue as picnic table sits between house and pool. Inside, we have comfortable and well air-conditioned spaces for meals and gatherings of friends and family.

Lovely Beach House in Ophelia
This is our third year returning to this home. We could not be more pleased than we are. The home has everything you need and is very clean and comfortable. We really enjoy the pool and walks on the beach. The view of the bay is so magnificent. We hope to return again next year.
Thank you Val and Mark
Lovely home away from home
This house is wonderfully spacious in a beautiful setting...woodsy, quiet, no hordes of people. We enjoyed the decor of the house, watching birds...,eagles, osprey, hummingbirds and others. Of course the bay was gorgeous and the pool was very nice. This is a great place to go for a calm relaxing vacation. We had some good seafood at a restaurant by a marina not far away but another meal at the Crazy Crab had both food and service that were very disappointing and expensive. We hope to return here in the future.
Home away from home
This is the perfect getaway for a small family with young kids who enjoy swimming and those who love fishing! The home is perfect size and easy to get around for all ages as it offers bedrooms and bathrooms on the main and second floors. It is very private and quiet location. This rental is on our list of places to rent in the future! Thank you Val and Mark!
This was the most amazing vacation ever. Peaceful setting with the most beautiful views and wildlife. We can’t stop talking about it. Owners are thoughtful, responsive, and accommodating . This house is a hidden gem for sure and we will undoubtedly be back again :)
Our Virginia vacation
We have been to Virginia on several occasions but none were as enjoyable as this vacation was. Except for the heat wave everything was perfect. Would love to return someday
