Loved house, porch, and location

  • 5 out of 5
Loved the charm of this house and I think we spent half of are vacation sitting on the porch it was great, It was really nice having clean linens and towels and upper quality to, not thin cheap ones. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need. Location is great just a short walk to board walk and city center. The owners of this house were great to work with and addressed issues quickly and took a lot of pride in the house and there rental reputation. Highly recommend this house to anyone! If you get a chance you need to visit near by Westmoreland State Park for a day hike to fossil beach to look for sharks teeth and the beach at George Washington's birthplace is the best in the area.

Walk to the beach with families

  • 5 out of 5
Easy walk to the beach & ice cream parlor!
Bikeable town - biked to Dockside for brunch and kids playing in the sand.
Great wrap-around porch with several seating options.
Great first-level layout with full-circle path for kids to run around.
Big backyard with large grill for cookout.
Nice surprise of welcoming snacks for us hungry families upon arrival.
The only down-side was the lack of a dishwasher, but there was every piece of cooking equipment and tupperware desired to make up for it.
Responsive owner.
Friendly neighbors.

Perfect Fit For Our Family

  • 5 out of 5
The Boxwood is exactly as advertised. We were very pleased with this cottage. We were traveling the Colonial Beach for a first beach trip with our 15 month old daughter. The cottage is a block or so from the beach (an EASY walk--even with a toddler in-tow). The cottage even had a little wagon which made carrying beach stuff to the beach that much easier. We were also within easy walks to just about everything. We walked to Linny's for pancakes on a couple of mornings. Fat Frieda's and the Seaside Tai/French restaurants were both short walks and were both outstanding.

The porch is great for relaxing after getting back from the beach. Our daughter loved swinging in the porch swing. The only thing we couldn't get going were the ceiling fans on the porch, but with the beach breeze and shade of the trees they really weren't necessary. The kitchen is well stocked, the bathrooms are clean and well set up, the beds are comfortable, the bath towels they provide are great (not just little cheapies), the sofas are comfortable, the A/C units do a great job of keeping the cottage plenty cool, the internet was plenty fast, the list goes on.

The cottage was very child friendly. We simply propped up an old safety gate we brought to discourage our daughter from going up the stairs and the downstairs was hers to roam freely (we did not let her wander around upstairs as it would be tough to secure the top of the stairs in the cottage). We brought a play yard for her to sleep in which nicely fit into one of the rooms. The room was a little bright for her naps, but that was easily remedied with a little creative shade construction. Overall this cottage was very child-friendly.

The cottage has easy access to the main road(s) to the main sights surrounding Colonial Beach. We had pleasant side-trips to Washington's Birthplace National Park and Stratford Hall. Both were well worth an afternoon trip.

The cottage is great. It gets two thumbs up from my family, and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing stay at Colonial Beach.

Perfect!

  • 5 out of 5
We absolutely adored this home. It was perfect for our family. I am so glad that we got to stay here and will definitely will be keeping it in mind for future visits to Virginia! Its so close to everything you might need and its right there by the beach! I looked at another home we were thinking about renting and I am so glad that we didn't. My favorite part was the porch and swing. Best way to enjoy that morning cup of coffee! We loved working with the owners. They were very prompt and helpful. Seriously if you are looking for a place in Colonial Beach...look no further!
