The six of us grew up in the Northern Neck of Virginia just 2 1/2 hours from Cape Charles, but we had never visited there. We loved our “Oyster Shell” house. The shopping, restaurants and bars were wonderful! The weather was perfect and we just loved traveling in the golf cart everywhere. We are already making plans to return soon!

We enjoyed our weekend stay in Cape Charles. This home is larger than it appears online with enough room for everyone to spread out and have space. Walked to coffee shops and to dinner.

The Oyster Shell house was perfectly suited to our 3 families. We walked to the beach, around town, shared meals in the kitchen and many wonderful conversations were had on the back patio!

Had a great time with my parents, mother in law and my family! Perfect size and nice private back yard.

This is the second year in a row we stayed at Oyster Shell and were very pleased. We plan on coming back next year. There are a few things I hope to be improved. 1. The floors in the house were so dirty that everyone's feet were black after walking on them. My child's feet on their pjs were so dirty I have to soak them. 2. The bed in the master room is very uncomfortable. 3. There were maggots in the outside trash can. 4. There needs to be more pillows and blankets.

If you are looking for a clean, well equipped house for your stay in Cape Charles, this is the house. Plenty of room to spread out, enjoy family time or some alone time. The pictures are exactly how the House appears. No surprises.

Excellent place - nicely furnished

We could not have been happier here. The Oyster Shell provided a beautiful space for our two families to call home for a week. We loved how easy and stress-free our vacation was. Just a quick 5 minute walk to the park and just a few minutes more to the beach or to the Mason Ave shops. We brought our bikes which was helpful, and had access to a golf cart from my mom&#x2019;s rental. Definitely coming back sometime soon!

Perfect for families. Check in and out was super easy. We have rented several properties in Cape Charles, so far this was by far the cleanest and best equipped of any of them. We will rent again for sure.
Stayed 3 days in May, 2018
Very comfortable house. Great for a family. Loved the outdoor shower. While not the closest house in town to the beach, still a very walkable distance. We also brought our bikes. Our children are teenagers, but there was a very nice enclosed porch with a picnic table, smaller TV, and games that would be great for younger children. Our only recommendation would be to hand out two house keys instead of one.
Stayed 1 day in August, 2017
We boated up to Cape Charles and docked in the marine. Then, we walked to the house, stopping by to pick up our keys. The staff texted me when it was ready. Then only blip was that the key didn't work, but they showed up in 5 minutes with a replacement!<br/><br/>The house was really awesome and comfortable for our 2 families. We would have like to stay longer and actually enjoy it a bit more. Next time...

This property was great for our group vacation. Property was very clean and well maintained. Location was great. Several restaurants and a weekly concert series all within walking distance.
Stayed 7 days in July, 2017
The house was great. It has the amenities needed for a stress free vacation. Cape Charles is a charming town and the beach is calm and the water is warm.The folks at Chesapeake Properties make the process effortless.

A group of 6 of us stayed at Oyster Shell for a girls' weekend and had a simply wonderful time. The house was just perfect. The street is very quiet and the house is a short walk to the beach. The house itself was very clean, well-maintained, and filled with amenities from linens/towels to a fully-stocked kitchen to Wifi/movies/board games. The backyard was a gem too, featuring a sturdy patio table and beautiful flower and vegetable gardens!
