Cape Charles Vacation Rentals
Salle(s) de bain
The Laughing Gull condo in Cape Charles is our go to place to unplug and relax. The condo is spacious, modern, and well maintained. It's close to the beach and pier. One of our favorite things to do is watch the sunset from the rooftop deck. The first floor of the building is a wine and cheese shop. It's convenient to walk downstairs and pick up a bottle of wine, cheese, or snacks. Our experience with Cape Charles Vacation Rentals is that they are easy to work with and quick to respond to any question. Looking forward to our next visit.
Perfect location for a Sept weekend getaway with our kids. Everything in the condo was great and we were close to everything. Prompt response from property management with a question during our stay as well. We can't wait to come back to Cape Charles!
First time to Cape Charles
This was our first trip to Cape Charles, and my family loved it. Everything is so peaceful, and the water was perfect for our two young children to play in. We spent more time on the beach this trip, than ever before.
The Laughing Gull property had a prime location right on Mason Avenue, and only about 1.5 blocks from the pier/beach. We were aware that the rental was on the second floor, but overlooked that this would require lugging wet toys, chairs, and kids up the wooden stairwells. We were not aware of any locations that we could store things outside or on the main level of the building, but that would definitely be a nice feature to avoid lugging everything upstairs and tracking sand throughout the building as well. Overall, there was a lack of info provided about the logistics of the rental. A binder or some laminated pages in the unit discussing things like where beach items could be stored, where sand could be hosed off, how to charge golf carts on the property, TV channel list, etc. would go a long way to making this a much more enjoyable rental. While everything is in walking distance from this location, we still opted to rent a golf cart to aid in our explorations; however, the rental/building did not really provide an easy way of charging the cart overnight. The property manager was very gracious and made other arrangements for us to be able to get a charge, but details like that would also be beneficial in advance instead of uncovered and coordinated at the last minute.
We were actually very disappointed when we arrived in the rental to see that access to the balcony right off our rental was restricted by a piece of L-bracket crudely drilled into the door molding. This was a feature we were looking to take advantage of while our children napped/went down for the night, but we were given absolutely no indication in advance that the balcony was off limits. There were also a number of holes cut into the bulkhead along the back wall of the rental, leaving bare drywall and signs of other ongoing maintenance readily visible. These were not the type of things we expected to find upon entering the unit.
Overall, the unit worked for us and we had a great trip, but when we return to Cape Charles, we will likely stay elsewhere. The added cost of being right on Mason Ave. is not worth some of the inconveniences of the property. With entire houses renting for similar costs, we will look into those options.
Best location best condo ever
The pictures do not do this place justice. It is huge, spacious and very very very clean. Tall ceilings and very bright inside. Comfortable clean furniture. Amazing location walking distance to everything; beach, food, and everything you want to see. Like others said, you can hear the people walking above you but it is not that bad. Only way you could not hear them is if the walls and floors were concrete and they are not. Did not try the elevator; closing the gate and the door just to go up one flight - yeah no thank you. Too creepy. Back to positives, parking is right outside the door. The wine shop below is perfect to get wine and enjoy the roof top deck after a day at the beach. This is our favorite VRBO rental by far. Cannot wait to return!!!
Lovely property in center of town
The townhouse apartment is in an excellent location right in the center of town. We enjoyed the beach and restaurants. The rooftop deck is awesome. If you’ve never been to Cape Charles - this is a perfect spot to stay to appreciate the small town charm.
