Thank you for your quick replies and do our vacations a confortable days!!

    5/5 Excellent

    We loved this place! Perfect location. Great back porch with a wonderful sunrise every morning. Decor was great! Centrally located on shore to be able to enjoy both north and south areas. Quiet little fishing village. Amanda communicated promptly with us!

    3/5 Okay

    Nice house but diappointing customer service
    We stayed at this house for 2 weeks this summer. The house was clean and had a nice beach theme. There were maintenance issues that we encountered while we stayed. Our first encounter was the tiny ants in the upstairs bathroom, then the upstairs shower head was clogged & only ran hot or hotter, the toilet paper and towel holders were either missing or falling off the wall, some of the doorknobs needed tightening, the shrubbery was overgrown or dead & finally, the gas grill outside would not work. When we contacted the owner, she responded quickly however her responses were unhelpful. She told us to fix the issues or justified that the maintenance issues were known to her but there wasn't time between customers to address. The final thing that bothered us was after replacing the propane tank for the grill upon her suggestion, we found it wouldn't light. When we asked Amanda how to proceed, she responded that we should go buy matches & refused to reimburse us for the cost of the propane tank. Definitely not a home away from home!

    4/5 Good

    a relaxing week
    We had a very relaxing, enjoyable week. The house is terrific and very well provisioned. The area is super quiet and serene and we loved sitting on the rocker in the back porch and watching the ocean (there is a partial view of the sea). It was perfect to meet our top priority, which was to relax. Amanda was very responsive to several requests. We brought our dog and the place was very dog friendly. Exmore is small and there isn't much to do right around the town so we went to Cape Charles more than we expected, which is only a 25 minute drive. The house also got a bit warm on the upper floor - the owner might provision the house with a few extra large fans. We were there in a very hot August so this may not be an issue in other times of year.

    4/5 Good

    Loved this home!!
    We loved this home!!! So cutely decorated, quiet neighborhood, and convenient to everything on the shore! We will be back!
