Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in April 2018

We loved the place as soon as we got there! My mom was given the upstairs room and felt guilty for having the nicest room in the house! We spent most of the daylight hours that we were at the house either on the upstairs balcony or just inside the room, when the winds got too strong! At night, you...

This home was just what we needed for the weekend. It was convenient to get to Main Street for the holiday happenings, stores, and restaurants, as well as convenient to the wildlife refuge to see the birds and wildlife. It has a nice view over the creek and marshes. It was just the right size for the three of us...

Management response:

Thank you for your review, Jean! We apologize about the shelf in the bathroom. The housekeeper had actually just told us about the shelf when she checked the house this past Monday and we had sent the handyman over to rectify the shelf situation on Tuesday. Thank you for your diligent response! We hope to see you again in the...

About the neighbourhood
Tranquil Shores is on a quiet lane overlooking the picturesque marshland in America's Happiest Seaside Town (2014 Coastal Living). There is plenty of space to park 2 cars on the property. It is within walking distance of the the road to the beach where you will find ice cream parlors, putt-putt, restaurants and beach supply stores. It is a short drive or bike ride to the beach. As it is a protected sea shore, everyone must get to the beach via a vehicle, but this means no shadows on the beach and spectacular sunrises and sunsets.
Getting around
Chincoteague Island is very accessible by car or bicycle, whichever you prefer. All of the island sights are easy accessible by bicycle, and you can see many tourists each day driving their bikes, enjoying the scenery. There is also a trolley system that takes people around the island in the warmer months.
Car advised
How to get there
Once you cross onto the island from the bridge continue going straight on Maddox Blvd. Turn right onto Chicken City Road. Take a left onto Megan Drive (If you pass the Chincoteague Pony Center on the left, you have gone too far.) House is at the end of Megan Drive. There are two parking spaces - one right next to the stairs leading to the main door and one directly behind the house. Please be sure to park your car(s) within these two parking spaces.
