Browse through our vacation home rentals, and you’ll discover some very tempting choices for your family vacation. An historic Main Street home is surrounded by a private landscape with a screened porch, bikes and beach toys. A luxurious custom home overlooks beautiful Oyster Bay, and family-friendly condos feature waterside decks, swimming pool and marina.
Naturally, the seashore is the dominant focus for outdoor fun on Chincoteague Island. Fish from the dock or walk the beach. Take a bird-watching hike or bicycle ride through wildlife preserves and quaint island lanes. Enjoy dolphin watching, island tours and spectacular sunset views from your own guided cruise through remote bays and waterways. Either Assateague or Chincoteague beaches are ideal for family picnics and water sports.
Believe it or not, the wild Chincoteague Ponies are an unusual attraction on adjacent Assateague Island. The kids will love a trip to the Chincoteague Pony Center to enjoy pony rides, a show and riding competition. Book a small, charter deep-sea fishing trip that offers the opportunity to land big game fish from mahi-mahi and tuna to marlin and sharks.
As a contrast to all of that outdoor adventure, explore the village feel of the historic downtown and Maddox Boulevard areas. You’ll find exceptional hand-crafted duck decoys and original wildlife and landscape paintings and charming gift shops. To keep you entertained on a lazy sun-filled afternoon, stop in at Sundial Books to browse for book favorites and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea.
Fresh ocean fare dominates local restaurant menus that are loaded with clams, oysters, and all-you-can-eat seafood platters. Of course, you can’t take the kids on vacation without finding the perfect pizza place, and that would be Famous Pizza Family Restaurant. They’ve been serving home-fresh pizza, cheese steaks and more for over 30 years. And you positively have to stop in at The Sea Shell Café for a gourmet salad and authentic Smith Island Cakes. They even cater to your vacation home, if you want to skip the kitchen duties and enjoy their excellent dinner selections.
There is no better way to enjoy a lazy, leisurely island vacation than from your carefully-chosen home rental. You’ll have plenty of room to relax, waterside views to enjoy and some wonderful home-grilled meals or bountiful breakfasts that will long be memorable for your entire family.
