Description Description
The welcome mat is out at spectacular Ariel's Grotto -  only minutes from Assateague National Seashore, home of the Famous Wild Ponies! This 3 Bedroom/2.5 Bath Home is simply stunning. Located on a very quiet street mid-island, this awesome Chincoteague Vacation Home is sure to make all of your Vacation Dreams come true!

As you enter this Coastal Cape, you will feel as if you stepped into Coastal Style Magazine. Cool colors of Sand and Sea welcome you, with hints of fun Nautical Red throughout. The spacious Foyer is a great place to kick off your shoes and leave your worries by the door - you won't be needing them during your time here on our Island! 

Ariel's Grotto opens to Soaring Ceilings and tons of glorious Natural Light. This home was designed with Easy Beach Living in mind. The gleaming Bamboo Floors and pale Blue Walls instantly make you feel at ease! You'll love relaxing in the huge Living Area with Cable TV and Free WiFi.  An oversized sectional sofa ensures there is room for all, and there is even a Fireplace to take the chill off those Off-Season Evenings. What a great place to curl up with a good book or get lost in a movie with the family, and the Owners have thoughtfully provided books, games, and movies for your enjoyment!

Just around the bend you will find the spacious Dining Area with seating for 6 to 8, which opens to the Gourmet Kitchen. There is also seating at the Breakfast Bar for quick meals before hitting the Beach. Ariel's Grotto has a great set-up for the Chef in your family with tons of countertop space, a Cook Top Island, every gadget imaginable, and beautiful Tile Flooring. The whimsical Coastal Decor and gorgeous Sea Green Walls make it a wonderful place to sip a glass of wine while whipping up some fresh Local Chincoteague Seafood! Is the weather too nice to dine indoors? Just a few steps off the Kitchen, gorgeous French Doors open to a huge Screened-in Porch with Dining Table. Listen to the trees rustle in the salty air and take it all in. A Charcoal Grill is provided on the Patio just off the Porch for grilling some burgers, or maybe that Flounder you caught Surf Fishing!

Ariel's Grotto has a convenient 1st Floor Master Bedroom with Master Bath, featuring a brand new King Bed and more fabulous colors that just make you happy to be there. This offers privacy for Mom and Dad, or is handy if someone in your group prefers not to use the stairs. There is a Walk-in Shower Combo in the Bathroom and lots of storage. Also on the 1st Floor is a Half Bath that is adjacent to the Kitchen and Living Area!

As you wander upstairs, you'll find 2 more Bedrooms with charming Beachy Decor. Bedroom 2 features 2 Queen Beds, a TV, and lots of space. The Nautical Theme and Blue Walls will make you feel as if you never left the Beach. Bedroom 3 has a Twin Bed with handy Twin Trundle Bed. Ariel's Grotto comfortably sleeps 8 people in total luxury and serenity. There is a 2nd Full Bathroom upstairs also with a Tub/Shower Combo and cheerful Surfer Theme.

Chincoteague Island has been voted "Happiest Seaside Town" and "Best Small Beach Town," just to name a few accolades. You will not find huge, commercialized Boardwalks and high-rise buildings, but you will find peace, nature, tranquility, and ponies at their very finest. Enjoy one of our famous Nature Boat Tours, go fishing and clamming, relax on the Beach with your loved ones, or go exploring on one of Assateague's Hiking Trails - maybe even climb to the top of our famous Lighthouse! Whatever you enjoy most, Ariel's Grotto is the perfect Home Base for your Chincoteague Island Adventures!

Beautifully Decorated Home
We have been to Chincoteague many times and stayed in various homes, this one was lovingly decorated & furnished. Would love to stay again! If there are any suggestions for improvement, it would be to have a TV in the master bedroom (not that we missed it after a fun day on the beach); but would be nice to have one. The kitchen was well stocked, would love to stay again!

Beautiful
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this property. It was quiet, well stocked with everything we needed, and the screened in porch was lovely. The check in and out processes were also extremely easy and the home was immaculately clean. We will definitely stay here again!

We would recommend!
The house was very clean. The neighborhood was very quiet and nice. The communication with Seaside Vacations was great. The house is less than a 10 minute drive to the beach, which is beautiful! There are a lot of biking paths that lead to the beach, and a lot of biking/walking paths at the wildlife preserve that we enjoyed (we saw some wild ponies on the Woodland trail). We would recommend this property!

Amazing place to vacation
We loved our stay at Ariel's Grotto. We were there for two weeks during Chirstmas and New Years', so off-season, but the island was still a fun, refreshing, and relaxing place to be. The house was exceptionally clean and well equipped (EVERYTHING for cooking and baking), and had a lot of fun stuff stocked like board games, puzzles and a Wii system. Super comfy beds as well! A 10 minute walk down the street to the Pony Center (interact with ponies, goats and donkeys), a 20 min drive to the nature preserve and a 15 min walk to the historic downtown. Highly recommend!

Wonderful!
We loved our stay at Ariel?s Grotto! Great location on a quiet street, and the house is fully stocked with all amenities, and lots of space for everyone to spread out and relax. Working with Seaside rentals was a dream, as well! They were very helpful and quick with communication when needed. Thanks for a wonderful vacation!

Ariel?s Grotto
My family had a wonderful time at Ariel?s Grotto this past week. The home was wonderfully furnished and clean. The street was quiet, peaceful and well maintained. We had a wonderful time fishing, mini golfing, biking and walking the nature trails, visiting the beach, watching wildlife, playing family games and spending quality time at this beautiful home. Even with the Covid restrictions and extra care needed to constantly sanitize, wear masks, gloves and bring all of our food, disposable plates, cups and silverware and personal belongings to help make sure to keep everyone healthy, we had a wonderful time. The island has been our vacation spot for over twenty five years and this house was our favorite! We would love to rent again!
Bonnie B from Mohnton, Pa - Posted: 7/7/2020

Thank you so much, and we couldn't be happier that you enjoyed your time on our beautiful little island :). Got your email about rebooking next year, and we can't wait to have y'all again! Best, Elaine
