House was in great shape. Great set up for entire family. Nice back yard. plugin available for golf cart. Air conditioning and water fine. The dishwasher was a bit of bother but absolutely no complaints great spot to get to everything.

Robyn’s Nest was cute as can be and felt like home right away. Close enough to walk to the beach and tons of shops, but so much fun to ride around town in a golf cart - definitely worth renting one! We had ages 2 - 64 and everyone was happy. Chesapeake Properties was highly communicative, and extremely fair when we lost one of the keys. The house was super clean and well appointed, and the rental company even checked in on some feedback they had addressed from a precious rental. We booked with them for next year before we even left! <br/>

The house was very family friendly, plenty of books and games. Easy walk to the beach! Property management team was very easy to work with, quick responses to e-mails and helped with my WiFi issue. Added bonus the neighbors were very friendly!

Comfortable home, larger than expected. 2 Blocks to the beach.

Robyn's Nest was very clean, in a great location and offered easy access to the beach (a few blocks). My family and I had a nice time and we would return.

We had a wonderful experience at Robyn's Nest. The property was very clean and well-maintained. We were very excited to be so close to the beach as well! We were unable to find any more toilet paper, as there was none stocked in the bathrooms or elsewhere in the house. However, I thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

We had a great time. The house was as described, clean, and with a convenient location to the beach. Would recommend

Clean but, it included lackluster furnishings and decor. The bathrooms have been nicely renovated. The master bedroom has an unacceptably sagging floor. Washer dryer were a nice amenity. The location was nice and exterior was in good repair, but ultimately, this rental was over priced.

We stayed in Robyn's Nest with three daughters, their spouses, and their four children, age 19 months to 9 years. The house had plenty of room for everybody. What we loved most was being able to walk to the beach, walk to stores and restaurants, and walk to a lovely park. It was fun and relaxing, and we weren't bombarded with loud commercial tourist traps.

The location of this house is indeed fabulous. The four bedrooms are spacious and have many bed options. On the negative side, the kitchen is small and can only hold 1-2 people at a time, and one of the bathrooms is off the dining room. Also, the house wasn't as well-maintained as we would have liked. The trash can was overflowing from the previous tenants. The downstairs A/C was on the fritz. Several of the dining rm chairs were missing the bottoms. The house had hardly any consumables, so we had to purchase toilet paper, paper towel, trash bags, laundry detergent, and a baking pan.

Robyn’s Nest was a great place to stay! Cape Charles is an amazing vacation spot for families with young children and Robyn’s Nest is close to everything. The hoyse has everything we needed - including a wagon to haul gear to the beach, beach chairs and towels, nice dining room table, yard with grill, multiple living areas, and many beds!

Nine of us and two dogs stayed at Robyn's Nest for a partial week rental in mid-July. It was a pleasure to work with Jen at Chesapeake Properties. She was very accommodating and also gave us a great recommendation for Broadwater Bay Ecotours. Robyn's Nest is very comfortable, very charming, and has everything one needs to dine in style. Great distance from everything in Cape Charles.
Stayed 6 days in June, 2018
It was great. The house is old and charming. We had plenty of space for our family and children. Its a great little walk to town and the beach is a short walk or bike ride away. Neighbors are super friendly and that is half the fun in walking to the beach!
Stayed 3 days in June, 2018
We had stayed here before and were not disappointed upon our return. Great improvements to the house by owners and location is perfect for walking to the beach or to the shopping and dining areas.

We had a wonderful time in Cape Charles. This home is close to everything - the beach, the downtown, restaurants . . . coffee! It is equipped with everything you need. The only downside (slight) is the stairs to the 2nd floor are steep and the tread narrow and slick. Be sure and use the handrail. Our little dogs never got the hang of it so we had to carry them up and down. Otherwise, you're in a nice, easy going community where everyone waves and says hi. Chesapeake Properties (Jen) is great, very responsive and helpful.

This was a great beach house for our family. We had 6 adults and 2 kids, and everyone was very comfortable. It was an easy walk to the beach from the house, and the bay is great for kids--gentle tides, shallow water. Everything in the house was clean and convenient--there were even beach towels and chairs for us to use.

This is a lovely home, on a street which manages to be both quiet and close to everything! My family had a wonderful time and this house was part of the reason. The kitchen was great, the bathrooms were sufficient, I would recommend the house and Cape Charles.
Stayed 4 days in July, 2017
This is a great house that really will sleep 7 or 8 adults comfortably. It will sleep more if you have kids to share some of the spaces. There is a trundle bed, a fold away and lots of space for everyone, besides the bedroom beds. We were a group of seven mature (well relatively) golfers and we had plenty of room to exist together. The only amenity we would have liked is an outside shower. An outside shower really helps when you have a bunch of people staying in one place. There is an outside faucet for rinsing feet etc.

Great location, the owner and the property manager were so easy to work with. We loved the town of Cape Charles!

If you are planning a family vacation to Cape Charles, please consider this rental, great location (Walking distance to both the beach and downtown), friendly neighbors, and a house that is stocked with the essentials.<br/>We had a total of 8 Adults 3 kids under 5 and 1 yellow lab stays at Robyn's Nest for a week in mid-June 2017. The property was perfect with that many people because of the many rooms and solid (noise cancelling) structure. If you have a dog that has to come on vacation too, just be warned that the backyard is not all the way fenced, so don’t let the pooch out the back unattended.<br/>

We had a fun weekend in Cape Charles at this nicely kept house. The location was the advertised 3 blocks from the beach, but the entire town is easily walkable. The shops in town are eclectic and the restaurants are good for a weekend. Not sure about an extended stay.<br/>The rental agents were very helpful and returned our full deposit.
Stayed 5 days in November, 2016
Our only glitch came because there were not enough chairs to fit all of us at the dining room table without bringing in the hassocks from the TV area. Perhaps 4 or 5 folding chairs could be added for a house full of adults. I would also add a few more dinner plates. Perfect location though and very nice neighbors.
Stayed 2 days in November, 2016
Perfect Property for a fall golf getaway. We were two miles from the courses and walking distances to the restaurants and beach
Stayed 2 days in September, 2016
The location was incredible, and the house in general was nice, and able to accommodate a large group. The only issue was one of the showers was a little questionable and the water in general smelled very sulfurous (this might be a town thing and not limited to this house). But besides this the house was perfect for what we needed and all the reservation and everything process was very straightforward and easy, would recommend.

Robyn's Nest is in an ideal location with easy walking to the beach and shops. The home has three spacious bedrooms (the fourth bedroom is only accessible via the third) and a well-appointed kitchen. The only critique is that the property feels worn-- chipped paint on baseboards and walls, blinds with missing/broken slats, and the upstairs bathroom has definitely seen better days. It's a nice rental house, just be aware the condition isn't absolutely mint.

We were in the area to fish. What a great town, very beautiful and everyone was very friendly. The property worked well for us and even though the house was really old, it worked ok. I do have a couple requests for future stays. The house needs fans. Because it's so old there were no ceiling fans in any of the rooms, especially in the bedrooms. It doesn't cost a lot to install ceiling fans, especially in the bedrooms, but if not please have fans available . The only other suggestion I would make is to upgrade the upstairs bathroom one day. Like I said, the house is old and the floors are uneven, but that adds to the charm of the house and over all we really liked the house. Great location and with a few fans, even floor fans we would rent it again for sure.

Our family of 12 had a perfect spot for our mini get away to Cape Charles. The 4 bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Though be aware one bedroom has to be accessed through another bedroom. This wasn't too much of a problem but it would have been nice to know ahead of time. Very nice to have a full bath upstairs and downstairs. The kitchen was very well equipped except for a good can opener and wine bottle opener (the ones provided did not work well). The large dining room table was great for our meals and card games except we could only find nine chairs in the house, which made it hard for us all to sit down together. We loved how close it was to main street and the beach. So nice to walk the lovely, friendly neighborhood! The back yard was great too, though in need of a mowing. We didn't mind putting the garbage can out on the road Monday night but it would be good to let guests know this in the paperwork as we had to ask neighbors. All in all we really liked Robyn's Nest for an value-priced and enjoyable get away. The house keeping staff was very quick to respond to our needs as well. Thank you!
