Lovely house perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a 4-night stay at the beach, for 2 adults and 4 children. The house was lovely - plenty of room for all of us, clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well-appointed with everything we needed to be able to cook, and the bedrooms were large enough for kids to share rooms with plenty of space. Each bedroom had its own TV, which thrilled my children, and there was a sizeable collection of DVDs, books, and video games. Before we confirmed the booking, Molly let us know that the washing machine had recently broken and was in the process of being replaced, but it would not be replaced before we got there. She gave us the option to decline to book the house, but we were fine without a washing machine so e booked anyway. As a courtesy because of the lack of a machine, Molly volunteered to throw in bed linens at no charge (be aware that there's otherwise a charge if you prefer not to bring your own linens) and she gave us an earlier check-in time. We really appreciated the accommodations. The house is right across from the beach, so very easy for us to go to the beach and back as often as we wanted, and for my older kids to pop back to the house without an adult if they wanted to get something. The beach itself was lovely - very quiet (we saw only a handful of other people the whole time we were there) and clean. The house had beach chairs and sand toys available for our use, which was great. There's a cute little town about a 15-minute drive away, with a variety of restaurant choices (including a diner with amazing ice cream and milkshakes) and a Food Lion for grocery shopping. The house is also an hour away from Williamsburg (though we enjoyed the beach so much that we did not venture there). Molly was amazingly accessible the whole time we were there to answer any questions we had. In particular, there was a tropical storm brewing off the coast a bit south, and Molly sent me emails to give me weather forecast and tide updates. Overall, we had a great stay at Molly's house and would definitely stay there again. It's a great place for a family or small group, particularly if you're looking for low-key, quiet stay at a beach that doesn't have the crowds and commotion of Virginia Beach or Ocean City.

Family Fun

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 6, 5 adults and one child stayed here for 5 days. Great farmhouse with a 4 minute walk to beach. Wonderful beach, low,, calm warm water, sandy bottom . Very secluded with few people. The mosquitos are intense. Ceiling fans on the porch helped. Do not overlook the bug spray. Town is 15 minutes away with a Food Lion . Southwind Pizza is a great place to eat. Walk to the lighthouse area on the beach. Outdoor shower was great for washing off sand. Although the farmhouse could use a deep cleaning, it did not deter our stay. We would go there again. Thank you Molly for all your help and letting us stay at your home.

Wonderful secluded home

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time with my kids. Nice home, beautiful secluded beach, and nice quiet neighborhood. Owners were quick to response when I had any questions. They were great to work with. Only about 15 minutes to town. I would highly recommend!

Great beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this spacious beach home, situated a quick walk across the road to a beautiful private beach. The home itself had everything we needed, and the bedrooms were a generous size and nicely air conditioned! The living room/kitchen combo was a great place to unwind at the end of the day, with a great open concept. As other guests have indicated, the outdoor shower was a great feature and helped to keep the floors free from sand upon our arrival back home after a day of lounging at the beach. I would definitely recommend this place to friends. Thanks, Molly, we really enjoyed our holiday!

Peaceful, serene, and a perfect beach for little ones!

  • 5 of 5

The beach house was a perfect size for our family of 5, and it had everything we needed for our week visit. (Even a new gas grill!) The walk to the private beach was literally 3 minutes long, and it was ideal for our 4-year-old to build sand castles and play in the waves. The outdoor shower came in super-handy after an afternoon at the beach! The mosquitos were pretty intense on the lawn and driveway, but when we kept the fans running on the porch, it wasn't too bad. The owners and caretakers were super helpful and available and helped us right away with a slight need we discovered! We would love to make this an annual family trip!
