We have stayed at this property for 4 years and every year has been excellent. It is well-provisioned and all beds and furniture very comfortable. We especially like the deck in the back for sitting. We could walk everywhere.
Stayed 4 days in July, 2021
I just love this little cottage. Close to beach, center park and Main Street.
Stayed 7 days in July, 2021
This property is just right fit 2 or 4 people! Nice and clean great backyard and deck! We will rent this place again
Stayed 4 days in June, 2021
Three teachers, two recently retired, chose this cute cottage for a getaway. Cute backyard with deck, grill and seating was great. Management didn't miss a beat when we called to tell them the house had barely any drinking glasses. A big new set was delivered that afternoon. Short walk to beach, shops
Stayed 3 days in June, 2021
This house was clean, comfortable and walking distance to the beach. Beautiful time in Cape Charles. Can’t wait to return.
Stayed 2 days in May, 2021
We enjoyed our weekend at "A Shore Thing". The property was clean and had everything we needed. The interior of the house could be painted. We would stay here again.
Stayed 6 days in May, 2021
The cottage was convenient and comfortable. Our stay was off-season. Unfortunately there was not much--shops or restaurants--open in Cape Charles during the week. Covid19 was also responsible for several businesses shutting down entirely. So it was a quieter vacation than we had envisioned.
Stayed 5 days in August, 2020
This is the third time that we have stayed at this property. Its location in Cape Charles, the comfort of the home, and the outdoor space is why we keep coming back. Cape Charles is a great place to enjoy some quiet, relaxing time.
Stayed 3 days in July, 2020
Loved our stay, the house and location! Just the right size for our family. Adding a front porch would be great, but the back deck is very nice as well.
Stayed 7 days in July, 2020
House was clean inside, but front exterior needs cleaning and washing.<br/>Interior was small but included everything needed for a short stay. TV instructions says to use Google Chromecast to get streaming channels. I plugged in my Apple TV box, which worked fine, once I found the HDMI plug behind the screen. Internet was fast. Washer/dryer worked well.Housekeeping was responsive to request for more toilet paper rolls. Leave the AC running. Turn down cooling if it gets too cold. If you turn it off, you must press reset button and sync with bedroom wall control to get it going again.Biggest complaint was that ants emerged from range/oven every night at dinner time! I sprayed with bug spray left under sink, but housekeeping should treat for ants after every cleaning and then monitor.
Stayed 3 days in July, 2020
This has got to be my all time favorite little home. It's convenient to everything, warm and homey. It does need some minor repairs. The towel bar was loose in the bathroom and the walls were peeling.
Stayed 2 days in July, 2020
<br/>check in; asked for directions their reply "you mean step by step directions." Well yes since, we didn't know how to get to house. Had to wash towels used and Strip Bed. Rented many vacation homes, and NEVER had to do this. TV wouldn't play DVD. Only positive, location to beach.
Stayed 36 days in December, 2019
It was a great place to stay while we were working in the area.
Stayed 4 days in October, 2019
Was a wonderful visit. The cottage was clean, stocked well and very well taken care of.
Stayed 5 days in August, 2019
We had a wonderful 5 days in Cape Charles. This cozy and comfortable home is just perfect for walking to restaurants, shopping and the beach. We spent a lot of time on the new back deck. We&#x2019;ll be back!
Stayed 6 days in August, 2019
Cape Charles is an amazing beach town, especially when you have small children. A Shore Thing was a perfect place to stay - small but tidy and had everything we needed for a fun week! The location can't be beat. I would suggested adding beach chairs to borrow.
Stayed 6 days in August, 2019
The house had a great location, only two blocks from the beach and two blocks from the downtown ares. It was a very restful and relaxing week and we hated to leave. The only downside was the street parking on busy beach days, I small parking area around back off the alley would have solved that problem.
Stayed 2 days in August, 2019
Perfect vacation house for our family (two small kids). It's on the small side, but we didn't need anything bigger for a long weekend - weather was perfect so were at the beach the whole time! Great location - walked to beach, the town's main street, meals, etc.
Stayed 3 days in July, 2019
This was perfect for my small family of 4. We look forward to coming back soon!
Stayed 3 days in July, 2019
I rented this home for a girls trip with my daughter and her friend and it was perfect for what we needed. It was well stocked with supplies and very comfy. Ms. Patti, who lives next door, made us feel right at home. I would definitely stay here again.
Stayed 3 days in June, 2019
Perfect size property with all anemities
Stayed 3 days in May, 2019
This little cottage is perfect for a two or four people. Very clean and tidy has everything you need to kick back and relax in the wonderful town of Cape Charles. Great back yard to BBQ or just hang outside. I would absolutely rent this little cottage again. I of course love visiting Cape Charles and of course the folks at Chesapeake Properties were awesome!!
Stayed 4 days in May, 2019
Nice little cottage. <br/>It was very helpful to have supplies in kitchen. Needs a cutting board there though.<br/>Great selection of DVD's to watch.
Stayed 59 days in January, 2019
I stayed in the bungalow while awaiting the closing on my house. It was a nice tiny hideaway in a beautiful seaside town.
Stayed 5 days in September, 2018
Awesome location, the house was setup perfectly for our needs, clean, compact, cozy and well planned. Great area and a lovely house! Cant wait to come back!
Stayed 4 days in August, 2018
This house is perfect in so many ways--location, quiet neighborhood, comfortable beds and sofa, and well-equipped. Came Charles is a charming town, and we saw the best of it!
Stayed 3 days in August, 2018
Cozy place with everything we needed to entertain the kids.
Stayed 3 days in August, 2018
We loved Cape Charles! A Shore Thing was perfect for our family. The house doesn't look like much on the outside but is perfect inside. Its small but well stocked and nice. The location is ideal...2 blocks from the downtown and 2-3 blocks from the beach, right near the park. Jenn was awesome. She came by after hours to drop something off for us and was responsive during the whole process.
Stayed 4 days in August, 2018
This is a very nice small house for up to four people if two are younger children. It is nicer inside than the exterior indicates. Close to the beach and retail/restaurants. Only suggestion is the master bed needs updating.
Stayed 6 days in July, 2018
This house is small but clean and comfortable. Three of us stayed for six nights and enjoyed the trip very much. <br/><br/>The check-in experience was easy and quick. We found the house with no trouble. Street parking at the house was plentiful. <br/><br/>The house is situated in a nice neighborhood in a delightful town. The main shopping street could be reached by a 5-minute walk. The neighbors were friendly and welcoming. There was an easy 2 block walk to the beach but most days we drove because we had so much to carry.<br/><br/>The house only has basic cable selections, but the huge number of DVDs available more than made up for the limited TV. Our daughter watched movies in her bedroom whenever she was not at the beach.<br/><br/>We can't wait to come back.<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>
Stayed 3 days in July, 2018
A Shore Thing was outstanding! The house was immaculate inside and had every amenity we could possibly need. It's centrally located to everything. We had a great stay.
Stayed 2 days in April, 2018
The trip was a delight! The house was all to be expected-accurate description, perfectly located and very clean. Will definitely stay again!!
Stayed 8 days in March, 2018
Jen, Chespeake Properties, was able to find this for us on very short notice. It fit us exactly and had everything we needed. Close to shops, restaurants and the beach. Really cute!
Stayed 3 days in September, 2017
Nice little bungalow near the beach. Hidden gem!!! Would rent this place again
Stayed 3 days in August, 2017
This little cottage went beyond my expectations. Super clean and comfy, close to beach, well stocked kitchen, nice backyard, freshly renovated, and nicely laid out floor plan. Only criticism would be to improve the outside entry which looks old and shabby and in no way represents the interior. Outside stair rails in need of anchoring. Otherwise loved our stay here... It is perfect for a small young family or up to three or four adults. I highly recommend it. Hesitant to give such a glowing review as i want it available for my next Cape Charles visit! lol It's a gem!<br/>
Stayed 3 days in July, 2017
Don't overlook this house! This house may look small but it is perfect inside for 3-4 people. Three of us went for a weekend and we loved it. We've stayed in Hilton Head, Kiawah, the Outer Banks, Myrtle Beach etc and this ranked right up there for a quality vacation. We've been to Cape Charles several times, so we love the "Maybuery" type of environment, slow and relaxed small town. We love the beach just being a couple blocks away and restaurants/stores within walking distance. We even rented a golf cart to tour all around from the company on the edge of town. This house had everything needed, linens, kitchen,laundry , comfortable bed and living area. Only small issue we had was toilet paper- there was only one roll there, but we just ran to the small pharmacy and got some. Otherwise, we'd definitely go back!!!
Stayed 1 day in July, 2017
Cute, clean 2 bedroom bungalow 2 blocks from the beach
Stayed 7 days in June, 2017
House was very clean and represented accurately. Our family of 4 enjoyed movie nights. Great location. Close to beach and downtown. Our first time for the 4th of July week. Loved the parade and vendors. Lack of wifi was a little bit of a challenge but manageable. Looking forward to coming back next year!
Stayed 2 days in June, 2017
Excellent small place for two of us to go to Wedding. Clean, would recommend, and really enjoyed the Seafood Eatery and Shanty at Cape Charles
Stayed 4 days in June, 2017
Four night vacation
Stayed 4 days in May, 2017
Very cute and good use of the space. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals. No dishwasher. Easy walk to the beach. Antenna TV doesn't work well. No WiFi. Chromecast didn't work either due to no Internet connection. Lots of dvd options, some older and some more recent. Plus there is a redbox at the Food Lion. Simple living at the beach.
