Get away from it all on Henry's Island offering alluring privacy and breathtaking views on the Chesapeake Bay. Enjoy the 5 acre Bay-front home whose private sandy beach includes unique Northern Neck sand dunes. Swim, crab, fish or use provided canoe, kayak, or paddle board to explore the water. Relax on lounge chairs with a frosty drink (margarita machine included). Take in the Bay breeze while reading a book or sleeping on the beach.

Dine inside overlooking the Bay or eat outside on the patio set after using the gas grill. Three king bedrooms (including two master suites), a bunk room and a separate play room make it comfortable and fun for adults and kids alike.

Something for Everyone: Tour one of historic Northern Neck's 19 museums, golf several excellent courses just minutes away including the award-winning King Carter Club (Golf Digest's 2006 best affordable public course in America) or sip Virginia's finest wines on the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail.

About Diane Boyle

We love the relaxed atmosphere of being right on the Chesapeake Bay where going to beach doesn't require leaving the property.

Diane Boyle purchased this house in 2009

Why Diane Boyle chose White Stone Beach

Just a short distance from DC, this private location provides a soft sandy beach to relax. However relaxing doesn't mean boring. The historic Northern Neck of Virginia has award winning golf, hiking, biking, fishing, boating, history (birthplace of three US presidents), art, antiques, and vineyards.

What makes this house unique

The private beach and endless Bay views makes it perfect for relaxing and playing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a getaway!

  • 5 out of 5
This house was all we wanted and more. It is perfect for adults and children alike. Not having to bring towels, linens, beach chairs and toys was a real plus. The property is secluded, however very close to beautiful, quaint town. The towns of White Stone, Irvington and Kilmarnock are very close and simply beautiful as well. KC's Crab and Cue near Kilmarnock is great for steamed shrimp and the River Market in White Stone has great crab salad. Also, do not miss going to The Local in Irvington for great coffee and breakfast sandwiches. I also loved the local produce stands scattered all over. The owner was very helpful from the time of inquiry into the property until our departure. She was always quick and efficient with her answers. I strongly recommend this property. It is the best experience I have had in a long time. We are already looking into booking for next year!!

Beautiful beach house on the Bay

  • 4 out of 5
This was our 2nd trip to this beautiful house, and once again we had a blast. The private beach is amazing and unique on the bay. Most Bay homes do not have a beach and the fact that this one has a private beach is what brought us back again this year. Our kids loved playing in the water and going for rides in the canoe and kayak. We made sure to wear water shoes as there are small sticks and reeds that are buried in the sand and become exposed at low tide. The house itself is designed well, lets in plenty of light, and has a nice big dining table for our larger party. The DVD player didn't work (it kept saying "NO DISC" regardless of which movie we tried to play), but the DISH network/TV worked fine. The only real complaint that we had (and the reason my rating is 4 instead of 5 stars) is that the neighbors next door were blasting the local country station on an outdoor stereo speaker all day long on Saturday and Sunday. While we enjoy country music, we come to the bay to get away from people and noise, and we would have preferred to just listen to the wind, water, and birds.

The owner of the house is fabuluous to rent from, as she is very quick with responses to any questions or concerns. I had to go to the store for propane and she had a check in the mail immediately to reimburse me for the cost. She also allowed us to check out a couple of hours late, which we really appreciated since we were only there for the long weekend.

All in all, we highly recommend this place.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry about the neighbors blasting Country music! I'll see what we can do about that and thanks for the info on the DVD player. We'll try to get it repaired, but will remove it from the listing for now. I'm glad you have a good visit hopefully, we can get the neighbors to be a little more considerate and earn back a 5 stars. :)

Best Vacation ever!

  • 5 out of 5
This house is amazing with lots of room and views that were breath taken. The water was perfect depth for young children as well as older. We had the privilege of seeing six dolphins come across right in front of the house, My husband and son in law had a closer look as they were on the boat provided by the owners and the dolphins swam right pass them. We also saw deer and lots of different birds. There was also life jackets provided which was very nice. This will most definitely be a yearly vacation for my family.

A few things you should know

  • 2 out of 5
While the home was gorgeous and definitely peaceful there was a BUG poblem. This could be due to the standing water that is NOT pictured in the photos of the property.

Im talking horse flies that attack your car as you pull in and make you want to tun right around and go home! Also biting green head flies. Now if you sit on the jetty with the wind you are ok, it is nice you can walk to the jetty and fish off of it as well..

The fruit flies were so bad we had to put the garbage can outside. With no garbage disposal we had to put trash in the freezer. Any time I went to wash dishes there were dozens of fruit flies flying in my face. Ants were on the counters as well...

By the middle of our week we were ready to be bug free and out of here!! The front door made weird noises ALL the time, there must be something wrong with the programmable lock.

The owners have a gorgeous home with nice towels and mostly good quality furnitures. They are very nice and get right back to you when you email. HBO is nice to have movie to watch.

Also NO cell service and a 15 minute drive to the one block town so be aware of this when booking this location, it is for sure away from it all!

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. We've had a lot of rain this season increasing the bug population. However, you are the first to note them as a problem. Fruit flies multiply quickly usually when trash isn't taken out (there are outside trash cans) or when the Margarita machine is not cleaned after use (they seem to love Margarita mix). A water bottle filled with apple cider vinegar and a little dish washing detergent will usually capture and rid the house of them. Cell serivce is spotty however, there is a land line (including free long-distance service) as well as free WIFI. I'm sorry the house was not a good fit for you.

Friends' Get-Away Location

Friends' Get-Away Location
  • 5 out of 5
Last weekend, my husband and I invited 4 other couples to join us for a Friend Get-Away & Birthday Celebration in White Stone. The house was perfect for the gathering. There were plenty of bedrooms for all of the couples, ample bathrooms for everyone too, and a STUNNING view of the Chesapeake Bay from the entire house. We especially loved the beach, the outdoor porch facing the Bay, and the long table large enough to accomodate the whole group. My husband and I, and our friends, all agreed that we'd love to rent this house again sometime with our children so that they could all enjoy the beauty and fun it has to offer.
