  • Nice place on the water, needs upkeep outside


    The home was very nice, clean and well kept. Very well stocked. They owners went above and beyond in this category to make the stay nice. The outside areas of the property need some TLC/maintenance. I.E. broken/rotted deck boards around the home, paint peeling etc. But overall very nice and clean. Would stay here again.

  • Disappointed


    While the location of the house being on the water is amazing….. the rest of the house needs updating. The furniture is also mostly outdated. The outdoor furniture looks beautiful in the photos but all of the cushions were off & the furniture was scattered & not set up. There were several pairs of shoes on the back patio which was strange. There was an odd smell in the house. We did find a bag of orange peels & rotted onions in a cabinet in the kitchen. Not sure if that was what the smell was, but it was gross. There was a small fresh blood stain on the mattress pad in one room. I wouldn’t stay here again unless they did a renovation & more thorough cleaning.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Katie, we take guest feedback seriously and passed your comments on to the homeowner who would like to share the following: 
    - Thank you for taking the time to leave your honest feedback. We appreciate you highlighting areas for improvement so we can better serve our guests.
    - We apologize the outdoor furniture was found scattered without cushions. Windstorms occasionally blow things around if cushions are left out, and although this was something outside of our control, we're sorry this happened during your stay. 
    - The shoes you saw are complimentary sandals for walking to the pier, but we will remove them to prevent any future confusion. 
    - The orange peel you referenced was potpourri for a fresh smell where we ask guests to store their garlic and onion. We further investigated and found no rotted onions. We take your feedback seriously and have made the decision to remove the potpourri. 
    - We were unaware of any concerns with there being a blood stain on the mattress pad and will follow up with our cleaning team to further investigate your concerns and remove the mattress pad if needed.
    - We use local, professional photographers to make sure that the listing photos correctly reflect the property, and do not have any intention at this time to make any unnecessary renovations to the property.
    We do all we can to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests.

  • Amazing setting


    Absolutely gorgeous setting. Being able to see and enjoy the York river throughout our stay was a highlight. We really were able to just step away and relax!

    Lots of bed options although mattresses could use an update.

    Kitchen is well stocked - just keep looking if you don’t see it at first :)

    Towels, linens etc supplied.

    This was the perfect location for our family. Beautiful spacious house with beach right on the river. Wish we had more time to relax and enjoy all the features.

    Sally and her husband were very helpful allowing us early check-in and late checkout. Also providing information to get blue crabs which everyone enjoyed.

    The beds in the twin bunk room were not so comfortable.
