About Robert Shepherd

Fithri is from an island (Java, in Indonesia) and Robert has spent time living on two islands (Java and Taiwan). We hope you enjoy everything Chincoteague Island has to offer as much as we do.

Robert Shepherd purchased this bungalow in 2017

Why Robert Shepherd chose Chincoteague Island

We are in a very quiet neighborhood that is child and bicycle friendly. The screen porch is large (24 feet x 12 feet) and comfortable. The island trolley (25 cents per ride) passes in front of our house. We provide all linens, and guests are welcomed to help themselves to the spices and condiments in the kitchen.

What makes this bungalow unique

We spend most of our time on the screen porch. Walking to nearby restaurants and shops is easy (be sure to stop by the Black Narrows Brewery!) We enjoy biking around the island, including an easy twenty minute ride to the never crowded biker/hiker beach on Assateague, a five minute ride to the shops and restaurants on Main Street, and a ten minute ride to the entrance on Assateague. And remember, when you enter Assateague Island by bike you do not pay an admission fee!

Charming bungalow with great outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year vacationing in Chincoteague, and this house was our favorite so far. The house itself was very comfortable for my husband and our two young children. The kitchen was well equipped, and the addition of linens and bath towels was a bonus as we didn't have to worry about packing them.

We took advantage of the Annex where my parents stayed for a few nights. They were very comfortable and enjoyed having a space of their own.

As most other reviewers mentioned, the screened in porch was the highlight. We spent much of our time there, enjoying the fresh air without worrying about mosquitoes. When our kids needed to run off some extra energy, the back yard was perfect as it was completely fenced in.

A relaxing and cozy home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We visited the island for a family wedding and enjoyed the comforts of home instead of a hotel. The porch is amazing and the kitchen was well stocked and the bedrooms were nicely decorated. The neighborhood was quiet and even with some days of rain it was a great place to be. The additional cottage for my son worked well giving him his own spot to relax. Thanks for a lovely place to stay.

Our favorite thing about this house was the screened in porch- it was great to relax, sip a cup of coffee in the morning, and eat dinner "outside" without any bugs! The house is clean and furniture and beds are extremely comfy. This house has everything! It was very nice to do laundry and come home from vacation without loads of dirty laundry! We loved using the chairs and umbrella at the beach! The outside shower is awesome to keep all the sand outside. We enjoyed using the grill and having a bonfire! For our family of 6 with 4 children from 6 months of age though 8 years old, it was great to have our own outside space for the kids to play instead of trying to keep them quiet inside and from disturbing other hotel guests. This place is very reasonable; and for our family, it was cheaper than getting a hotel room. Plus, we loved all the "extra perks" with being able to grill and cook, do laundry, play and be outside, and have a bonfire. We loved our stay here! We hope to be back next year! This house made our family vacation just perfect!

Cozy, clean, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The house has all the comforts of home. The outdoor porch was so nice to sit out in the mornings before we went out and to finish out our day. The location was great and walkable. Fithri and Robert answered questions quickly. I would stay here again on a future trip.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful trip to Chincoteague. The house was just perfect! Very comfortable, immaculately kept, and welcoming. The best part of the house is the huge screened porch where we ate all our meals and spent most of our time. The outdoor shower is really handy after a day at the beach. We would love to come again in future years. Thank you!
