We had the best week in Cape Charles. The town is so charming and friendly. Peach Retreat was perfect for our family. The house was clean and comfortable. The location is ideal for beach, shopping and restaurants. We will definitely return to Cape Charles and stay at Peach Retreat!
Wonderful long weekend
We had a great stay at Peach Retreat in Cape Charles. This was our first time visiting this charming town, we’ll definitely be back. This was a great weekend getaway with our two small children and in-laws. The house was clean, comfortable and came with lots of great amenities for the beach. Don’t worry about packing chairs, umbrellas, etc this house has it all taken care of for you. We would recommend this home for a small family outing or couples getaway and would definitely rent it again.
We had a great time. The house was very clean and had everything thing we needed. The location was great being right downtown. We rented the golf cart which made going to the beach with all of our things easy. The only thing that we could have used was some kitchen towels to dry our hands. But we would definitely rent here again.
The place was excellent. The location was perfect.
Family vacation week
Our family enjoyed a wonderful week in Cape Charles at Peach Retreat. The everything was clean, convenient, and well designed for family time together. My only wish is that there had been more flat ware for meals. Knives and forks were always having to be washed, and there were only eight of us. That is easily fixed, and I would not hesitate to return next summer. We give a thumbs up!
The listing states that there is a back yard which is fenced. This is all true. However, this yard was only large enough for the patio table that was there. We did not bring our dog ( a golden doodle) and it would have been a problem if we had because there was not enough space for her to run around.
Other than that it was a fantastic property and we had a great stay!
