My name is Michelle Waterfield. My father, Mitchell Howard, Jr is the owner. I live on the mainland as does my father. I am a stay at home mom, and assist my dad in managing the rental. I am usually available to assist with basic needs regarding the home, and I am responsible for all of the bookings. My father is a self-employed carpenter who has owned this home since the mid 90s. We just recently opened it up as a vacation rental, and it is going well so far. My father is a native of the island, and I did a lot of growing up there as well. We are both pretty knowledgeable if you have questions or need suggestions.
Michelle Howard Waterfield purchased this house in 1990
This home belonged to my great grandparents, so it is family owned. There are fond memories of chicken and dumpling Sunday dinners, childhood birthday parties, sitting in the front yard and my pop pop sitting out front under the willow tree next to his clam shack where he sold clams. The home is simple and traditional Chincoteague style. One of the best features of this home is close proximity to the Chincoteague Annual Pony Swim, we enjoy time with the family here every year for the special event!
The willow tree out front provides nice shad and there is a backyard sitting area with a very tiny deck but it is so nice for sitting out in the evenings. We enjoy grilling on the charcoal grill or eating sandwiches on the picnic table with the family. From the upstairs bedroom you can observe the Assateague lighthouse in the distance. You can faintly see the flickering light through the window in the evening.
Another benefit, is the very close proximity to memorial park: enjoy the public boat ramp, playground equipment, fishing dock, gazebo and picnic area.
Nice cottage. Everything was clean. There were 5 of us and when we showered, everyone had hot water. There were some ants on the counters but once we insured there were no crumbs left out on counters, they disappeared.
My husband and I stayed here for the weekend and were utterly delighted.
The house was comfortable, inviting, and impeccably clean. The rooms are generous in size, especially the kitchen and bathroom. There's a nice washer & dryer for laundry. The layout of the house is very nice; my husband's back was hurting him, so having 1 bedroom on the first floor near the bathroom was terrific.
The best part, though, was the owner's flexibility in accommodating me at the last minute when the house wasn't even supposed to be available. What a sweet and wonderful person to rent from! She saved my birthday weekend from potential disaster by helping me book her home rather spontaneously and working through some technical issues online together.
I would love to come back here again and I will whole-heartedly recommend it to my friends!
The house was clean and it was adequate for our stay. It is located on a quiet street in a residential area and you would need a car to go to town, the beach or other attractions. However, the kitchen as with the rest of the house is quite dated and it could use some sprucing up. The owner/manager was responsive and provided useful information and tips to maximize our holiday. Etta's Channel Side restaurant is nearby with elegant waterside dining and serves quality food .. highly recommended! We also dined at AJ's and the Village though both were quite average with a lot of fried food on its menu. If you plan to cook at home, Capt. Zack's has great fresh seafood (also cooks to order).
This home is perfect for our relaxing stay in Chincoteague. It is very clean and well appointed, and well located! Nice and quiet. Thank you for a wonderful time.
Very well kept and clean. We had 4 adults and 1 kid in the house and it seemed like the perfect amount of space. It was also one of the only places available on short notice during the summer that could be rented for less than a full week. Kitchen had everything we needed. Owner was very responsive and courteous. The only potential downside that some could find here is that there didn't seem to be wi-fi or cable TV. That didn't matter much to us though.
I'm going to start off by saying this house was CLEAN...we have rented through VRBO several times before, but this property wins as being the cleanest, hands down. The house worked great for our late summer getaway with our children (ages 2 and 7) We utilized the upstairs loft area bedrooms which are very charming. It was convenient and affordable that we did not need to rent for an entire week. Looks like it's a great location for the pony swim. We would definitely stay here again during an event or festival. Just a note, the kitchen seems to have most of the essentials at this time.
Property is located on Chincoteague Island, VA. Just minutes away from Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, located on Assateague Island, home of the famous wild Chincoteague ponies and the beautiful beach.
