people found this review helpful

We rented this house because our favorite house with another Chincoeague rental agency was not available. While this house is nice, we prefer the other one.
The view here is awesome, but the mosquitos are worse due to a high concentration of marsh land in this section of the island.
There is a boat dock but the water is too shallow to accomodate a sizeable boat. The house is furnished nicely but there are lots of stairs so would not recommend to anyone who is stairs challenged.
The wifi is SLOOOWWW! Very annoying since we are used to high speed.

Overall, a nice house but not would not rent again.

“Second time at Ocean View Retreat”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was our second year at this house. The house is beautiful. The kids STILL love 'THE CAPTAINS QUARTERS'.... Crabbing of the dock was so much fun. The morning view off the deck was amazing. It a great place to make memories with your family.

“The Perfect House for a Perfect Family Vacation”
Reviewed 5 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The house was beautiful and very spacious. The children loved the Captain's Quarters. Having our big family dinners in the large dining room across from the lighthouse was amazing. Great deck with views of the lighthouse. The kids enjoyed crabbing and fishing off the dock. It was very close to the beach and pony centre.
