The white sand beach (cleaned and graded daily) is the perfect place for children to play, swim, shelling, and search for sea glass. This 1920 house has was remodeled in 2004 and again with upgrades in 2013 after we purchased it. It is one of the largest dwelling rental properties in town sitting on 3 1/2 lots that are fenced in for relaxing while the kids are at play. The house has refinished hardwood floors throughout. The first floor boasts a huge Master bedroom suite with an over sized tub and walk in shower, with a private balcony. All new appliances throughout the kitchen and laundry room, a walk in pantry, dining area that seats 12, a large living area, along with a screened in porch for night time cocktails & fellowship.

One more floor up is a finished attic with a Full bed and twin bed.

About Jennifer & Jeff Dawson
After acquiring our first house in Cape Charles, we pursued this beautiful dutch colonial right across the street that we have always loved. We are a family of 6 with 4 young children and come to Cape Charles as much as we can, with hopes to make this town our next move.
Jennifer & Jeff Dawson purchased this House in 2012
Why Jennifer & Jeff Dawson chose Cape Charles
We started coming to Cape Charles about 7 years ago and knew we wanted to make this our hometown some day. This spacious property offers 6 bedrooms. It easily allows for 8-11 adults along with 4-6 kids to enjoy a vacation without climbing over each other. The house has so many areas to relax in. From the front porch, side porch, gardens in the yard, and the proximity to everything is great. Monroe Street is the quietest street in town, that has a tree lined peninsula. The park also breaks up the street so this end of Monroe has very few cars that travel through it.
What makes this House unique
3 story single dwelling home. Basement available for storage. Cottage on fenced in property available for storage.

Wonderful Vacation Home in Cape Charles VA
We spent a wonderful week in beautiful and quaint Cape Charles VA on Virginia's Eastern Shore. Southern Living II is a lovely home, with large, comfortable rooms that are very well appointed. A large kitchen that is extremely well equipped leads out to a large yard with ample off-street parking via the rear alley. Master Bedroom is huge, as well as the Master Bath. Upstairs bedrooms are roomy, with a terrific room for the kids (four bunk beds!). All the way up on the third floor is a spacious attic bedroom with space for several more.
The living and dining areas are great and can comfortably seat a large crowd. A/C works great, and it is a quick walk to the beautiful beach, bay, and shops. Get a golf cart or just stretch your legs...Central Park is a half block walk and just lovely. Perfect location close to everything. Great restaurants for eating out or taking out.
The owners have thought of everything, and I can't think of anything they missed. We truly look forward to our next visit to Cape Charles and Southern Living II !
Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback! We try our best to make it a home away from home and to provide things that can allow our guests to feel like it's their own place!
Excellent location and kid friendly home.
This was our second year to stay at SLII. We love the location, easy walk to the beach, park and town. The house is well-equipped for families, plenty of space and lots of nice details like beach toys, family games & DVDs. Owners are very nice; you can tell they care about your experience.
Spacious for multiple families
We've stayed here for the past 5 years. Great location to beach, park and shops. The homeowners have everything you need.
Great for larger families and kiddos!
I'd love to rent this house again in the future - lots of room to spread out, well appointed kitchen, comfortable mattresses, fenced-in yard, screened porch and a location to die for. Owners are very easy to work with and quick to respond.
Cape Charles Southern Living
While in Cape Charles for a wedding, we stayed at Southern Living. It was a nice big house, well equipped and very close to our venue and easy walk downtown. We would recommend it to anyone visiting Cape Charles on the Eastern Shore, and would like to come back again sometime for another long weekend.
Great house, especially for a large number of people. Also, right in town; almost everything is an easy walk away. Owners answered all questions pretty quickly.
Our 'Southern Living II' is the 6 Bedroom 'sister house' to 'Southern Living on the Eastern Shore'. It is located between Central Park, and the town beach, both a 5 minute walk to either spot, as well as a 5 minute walk to the downtown attractions of Kelly's Gingernut, The Shanty, and Cape Charles Coffee House Restaurants.
