Large, Ultra-modern, Green Technology, Beach House 3 Bedroom/2.5 Bath (Sleeps 8)
About Scott Harbinson
We built this home for our children. We wanted to create the sort of childhood memories that would last a lifetime and would be passed down to future generations. We chose Chincoteague because we view it as 'Mayberry By-The-Sea'. Chincoteague is a family resort. There are no bars, tattoo parlors and serious crime is almost unheard of. It is the sort of place where we feel perfectly comfortable letting our teenaged children explore on their own. They ride bikes to the beach, to get ice cream, take the kayak out, go crabbing and play basketball and tennis down the street at Memorial Park. They have an autonomy and freedom here that has given them greater confidence and has provided an opportunity to make decisions in a safe environment.
Scott Harbinson purchased this Townhouse in 2012
Why Scott Harbinson chose Chincoteague Island
We designed this home with families in mind. The second floor queen BR is for adults affording a panoramic view through a 12 foot wide slider. It has a shared full bath. The second floor has a 'bunk room' for the kids with two singles down and another single up in a loft accessed by a ship's ladder. This bedroom also has direct, separate access to the bathroom. Adjacent is the theater room with four movie theater seats and a 40' flat screen TV. This allows 'early risers' to be autonomous and give Mom and Dad the opportunity to sleep in. The third floor is entirely dedicated to the master suite. Queen memory foam bed, sitting room with TV and DVD player; and travertine luxury bath including soaking tub. Of course, stupendous views of the Channel and lighthouse out to the Atlantic through a huge 8 x 12 slider. There's also a balcony for morning coffee, afternoon sun or enjoying a quiet evening drink.
What makes this Townhouse unique
This house was built featuring some innovative green technology. It's walls and roof are made of structural insulated panels, not 2x4's and plywood. It is tight as a vault, incredibly well insulated and quiet as can be. Since construction, this house has stood against Hurricane Irene and Super Storm Sandy without sustaining so much as a scratch.
Designed with children in mind

Beautiful house and views
Property was exactly as described. lovely water and lighthouse views. could see the ponies grazing from the front porch. Scott answered every question i asked leading up to our visit within an hour. Great hosts and I highly recommend this house and i hope to book it again in the future!
*side note if you want to eat dinner at AJ's on the Creek make a reservation, place books fast*
*second side note, bring bug spray, mosquitoes were bad all over the island during our visit*
Beautiful view and great place for a larger group!
We stayed here with friends who have little kids. The house layout was perfect for all 6 of us. We had dinner every night in the house and really enjoyed the screened in dining area. We walked down to the playground nearby, crabbed off the dock and enjoyed using the kitchen and sitting area. The bedrooms were really nice - and the media room on the second floor was perfect for our rainy days. We loved it here and would highly recommend it!!
So pleased you enjoyed yourselves. We hope to see you again soon!

Great stay. Beautiful location. Place was great for a family. Glad I read reviews and brought towels for the kitchen. Loved the house. The master bedroom was very modestly decorated, but the deck and view was outstanding. The only issue was that I booked one place on vrbo but was switched to the unit next door. So the description was not completely accurate. However, I think the switch ended up being good for our family. The living room was a great place for us to spend time together. Loved the week and want to go back already.
Great relaxing experience
Wonderful home in a perfect location on the island. You could see the lighthouse and the ponies grazing on Assateague everyday. It was easy to bike all over the island from the home. We enjoyed the kayak as well. Very clean and spacious for our family of five. Owner was quick to respond to any questions.
We are so happy you enjoyed yourselves. Thank you for staying with us- we hope to see you again sometime.

Nice stay in June
We had a nice stay at this house. It was 4 adults and 3 kids and there was plenty of space (although one more couch would have made the living room the perfect size for our group). The communication with the host was excellent and he was very quick to respond to any questions. The house was very clean and the kids loved looking through all the DVDs. I will clarify that based on the description, we didn't realize the water / dock was actually across the street from the house. Luckily, the street wasn't very busy and the view was still great.
Everything you need!
Really good experience! Crabbing, kayaking, views.
Glad you guys had fun. We hope to see you guys again soon!!

Private pier (shared with one other town home) on Sheepshead Creek. Great crabbing, fishing and kayaking. Walk to Memorial Park (tennis, basketball, playground). Yards from public boat ramp. Five minute drive to National Park. Easy commute to beach via bicycle.
