“Dock of the bay”

The 2 bedrooms (rental #11) are a bit awkwardly arranged. You walk into a bedroom, then living room, then through another room to get to the 2nd bedroom. However, it was clean. 1- window air conditioner for the entire place. Had to leave the bedroom doors open to get cool air. Had a box fan in 1 room and another fan in the 2nd bedroom. Overall, not as cool as I like to be at night. With all that said, location is beautiful and staff is friendly. This rental is not luxurious but shabby sheak in my opinion.

Our family traveled down to Chincoteague Island for a week of fun and relaxation. This was something we have been looking forward to doing for a long time. While the surroundings and Snug Harbor Marina met our expectations, we were not expecting to fall in love with the Chincoteague/Assateague area.

It all began when we pulled up and entered this CLEAN, updated waterfront cottage. The owners were friendly and welcoming. Prior to our trip we had every indication that this would be a special place to rent because when my wife and I were growing up, our parents also took us on vacations to a waterfront community.

This cottage is quaint, inviting and relaxing for a water side getaway. It has a nice size deck and excellent access to the dock where we kept our boat (13ft) and wave-runner. Water pressure for the shower is excellent and furniture is comfortable. We saw horses, dolphins, sea turtles, eagles and osprey near the bay that runs directly behind the cottages.

We enjoyed visiting Assateague Lighthouse, The National Wildlife Refuge, Beach, and town with many ice cream shops to choose from. If you are a pie lover, you have to visit “Church Street Produce” they make the best fruit pies.

At night we grilled fresh seafood, steaks, burgers and corn all week long. There are plenty of places to eat out, but we chose the BBQ behind the cottage instead. Our son actually stayed on the water all day exploring the bay. He had such a great time. Snug Harbor was one of our absolute favorite places. The nights were peaceful and the locals are friendly. We will definitely be back.

No glitz and glamour here. Just the basics but with a touch of the Caribbean - real palm trees, tiki bars and reggae music! It works! Private dock with a lovely open view of Assateague Island. Rent kayaks right there to paddle out for a closer view of the ponies and bird life. Accommodations are clean and hosts offer an efficient hospitality.

“Everything that was promised, perfect for our family”

The other reviews and the owners' description say it all -- it IS right across the water from the lighthouse and the marsh where you can watch the ponies from the beach chairs, the docks, or the tiki huts. John and Basia ARE incredible hosts and useful guides for boating and kayaking. The two-bedroom unit WAS perfect -- a necessity when traveling with our two teens (19 & 15), who had a great time.

Even the less-than-robust wifi (we were in the end cabin) was a plus -- our son had to go outside and sit at the tiki hut if he wanted to use his iPad!

Not cheap, but a great value. Nothing else like it on the island.

Two quibbles to help make things better: even small cheap microwaves in the cabin would be a big help, and some kind of guest laundry (if they had one, we weren't aware) would have been great for our wet muddy clothes after stalking the ponies through the marsh in our kayaks!
