Our extended family enjoyed this comfy, beautifully decorated home. They were comfortably accommodated during their early Christmas family visit to the island to visit us. Our children and grandchildren enjoyed the family friendly environment and excellent views. We were happy to have them enjoy the Chincoteague hospitality..
Yes, that's what we called it! We could do as little or as much as we wanted from this location - walking, relaxing, kayaking, or fishing. Every time we turned around, there was something new to discover at Family Tides. The house itself provided more amenities than anticipated, and it was fun to have a record player and beach equipment available. Pack your sunscreen and bug spray (those skeeters!), catch some blue crabs off the deck, interact with the boat captains cruising by, kayak around the island, and stroll down Main and Maddox for great coffee, donuts, or ice cream. We were a family of 6 - Grandmas, adult "kids", and a 5 and 11 year old, and the magic worked for all of us!
Sounds like you made some amazing memories - that makes us so happy! Thank you for the glowing review, and we hope to have y'all again! Best, ElainePosted: 8/21/2021
Staying at Family Tides was a joy for our family. We loved the location - especially being able to watch the sunsets from the back yard. We loved the convenience of being so close to everything in town - even with Covid 19 restrictions it added value to our stay. The house all the amenities needed to make our stay easy and enjoyable. We highly recommend staying at Family Tides and hope to return ourselves in the near future.
Wesley, y'all were absolutely lovely guests, and I am so glad we got a chance to chat while you were here. Thank you so much for the lovely review, and we look forward to having you stay with us again! Best, ElainePosted: 11/2/2020
This rental was a true Gem! The location, the layout, and the amenities provided could not have been better. And that private deck looking out onto the bay is a really special space. We hope to come back one day.
So happy you enjoyed your time at Family Tides, and on our beautiful little island :). Please do come back and see us again!Posted: 10/19/2020
This was our favorite house so far in our summer visits to Chincoteague. It gave our family with teens the room to spread out, but also gave us the feeling of home away from home because of all of the amenities provided and super clean feeling! The backyard and dock were amazing. There was a great proximity to town. For me it's a 4/5 because I am a view gal, and I just favor the quieter, more expansive view of the lighthouse side of the island and also because I personally didn't love how close to the neighbors we were.
Bobbi, I am so happy you enjoyed your time, and I so appreciate that you stay with us at Seaside so often! Everyone has their favorite "nook" on the Island, and it sounds like yours is the East Side. Look forward to having you and your wonderful family again this Fall! Best, ElainePosted: 8/15/2020
We definitely want to stay here again!
Loved it. Hope to return. This property was so pretty, beautifully maintained, well equipped and perfectly located. We were charmed.
