Description Description
In Life, it's not where you go, but who you travel with. Family, Friends - those who mean the very most - are at times the hardest to get together. It's time - clear your calendar, grab those you love, and head to fabulous Chincoteague Island. If you make the time, we've got the place! Welcome to stately Great White - the perfect place to gather, reconnect, and relax.



This gorgeous Historic Home is located on Main Street, only steps from Downtown Shops, Dining, and Robert Reed Waterfront Park - home of the best Sunsets to be found and Family-Friendly Free Events all Summer long! Besides the fact the Great White is an expansive Home that sleeps 12 and combines all you love about yesteryear with Modern Amenities, it also welcomes your Family Dog AND has Pool Access right next door at Sunset Bay Villas! Just imagine lounging at the Bayfront Pool after a fun-filled day at the Beach! Not to mention, Great White wraps this all in a very affordable package!

If you're looking for shiny and new, Great White may not be the right place for you - but if you appreciate the quintessential Chincoteague Charm and History that this amazing Home has to offer, you're going to fall madly in love. Built in 1925, this statuesque dream home has grown over the years, as the family that loved her grew. With ample space to be together, but not crowded, she sleeps 12 in 5 Bedrooms plus Den. As you pull into the long driveway, the Wraparound Front Screened Porch beckons you - a fabulous place to meet at the day's end to share stories of your adventures. Furnished with Antique Wicker and plenty of seating for all, you'll never want to leave. There is plenty of parking behind the house - even room for your boat trailer and other water toys. Fido will love the Fenced-in Side Yard, and you'll love the glimpses of the Chincoteague Bay as you grill the Fresh Catch of the Day. 

Wandering in through the Mudroom, perfect for storing your Beach Gear, you can kick off your Flip Flops and let the fun begin. On the 1st Floor, Great White has so many places to gather. The Eat-in Kitchen is well-stocked with all you need for family mealtime. Grab a quick bite bite at the Kitchen Dinette before exploring our beautiful Island, or sip your coffee on that wonderful Front Porch. The expansive Dining Room has plenty of room for the whole gang, as well. Not one to cook on Vacation? You're only steps from some of our favorite restaurants, including Bill's Prime Steak and Seafood, The Ropewalk, and Don's Seafood. 

Cool off in the Living Area and enjoy the Satellite TV and Free WiFi, or curl up with a good book in the Sitting Area.  The 1st Floor Master is beautifully decorated with touches of a bygone era, and perfect for those not wanting to deal with a lot of stairs. The Master Bath has a Tub/Shower Combo, gorgeous Custom Blue Tilework, and a fabulous Historic Stained Glass Window - just stunning. Also on the 1st Floor is a spacious Utility Room with a 2nd Refrigerator, Full Size Washer and Dryer, and a convenient Half Bath. 

Upstairs you'll find 4 more Bedrooms plus a Den. Bedroom 2 has a Queen Bed and colors of Sea Glass - blues and yellows. With all new Bedding, it will feel incredible to sink into at the end of the day. Bedroom 3 has 1 Twin and 1 Full and Beachy Blue Walls, and Bedroom 4 has a Tropical Theme with Twin Bunk Beds. Patriotic Bedroom 5 has a Twin Bed with Twin Trundle. There is also a Den/Sleeping Room that has an additional TV, Full Futon, and Twin Futon - the kids will love this room! Looking for yet another spot for a little "you" time? There is another Sitting Room upstairs with a comfy Wicker Loveseat and access to a small Balcony offering some water and causeway Views. The upstairs Master Bath is truly unique with a classis Claw Foot Bath Tub! There is also a Glass Walk-in Shower and ample space. 

With all of this PLUS access to Sunset Bay's Bayfront Outdoor Pool, what more could you want? Relax poolside and take in those salty, sweet bay breezes. Chincoteague is a great biking town - bring your own or rent some right down the street. Or, try your hand at crabbing in the Marsh between Sunset Bay and Great White - so much to do, you just may need to stay awhile!

Great White - In Life, it's not where you go, it's who you travel with.....

Convenient to grocery, Islands, Ponies,
Well the house has some history. You can tell that by the assortment of coffee cups in the cabinets from all over the United States and Canada. There were multiple ways to get up the stairs and while not everything was as flat or standard there were places big enough for family to get together, the neighbors are friendly, the swimming pool behind us was not very populated and the washing machine worked. :-) We had a marvelous time and the folks at Seaside Vacations were helpful whenever we asked a question. (And making an "ask" of myself helps me learn new things all the time) The temperature outdoors was a bit warm for us but the people and the island are wonderful.

Charming home but needs some TLC
We were back and forth between trying a new home or going with the house we?ve rented before but the additional square footage and pool access was very appealing so we decided to rent the Great White. We loved being on Main Street so we could walk to so many shops, the grocery store and restaurants. We just got home and had a fabulous time in Chincoteague! The house worked out well for my family of 4, plus my parents and brother&sister in law. 8 of us total. It could have accommodated more but it worked out well for us, everyone had their space. One additional full bath would?ve been helpful but we made it work. The decorations were eclectic and some not so kid friendly so we did needs to put some breakables away temporarily so they wouldn?t get damaged by young children. The house has definitely been well loved, and could use some TLC. I know a renovation isn?t a cheap thing, but I can only imagine how amazing the house could be with some modern upgrades and much needed repairs. The power room was clearly slanted and porch vestibule wobbly. Another note, I wish there were trash cans and luggage racks in every room, plus more towel hooks or laundry racks since we spent a lot of time at the beach and pool. The back porch was great for holding everything we needed in that regard, but more places to hang towels would have been helpful. The two fridges was a huge blessing, plenty of room for water and soda to stay chilled, room for ice packs and bags of ice, plus food in the main fridge. We also truly enjoyed the huge screened in front porch! It was nice to be able to sit out and not get bit by thousands of mosquitoes. We would definitely consider staying again if upgrades continue to be made a priority. Maybe even longer next time since they were putting in a new fence while we were there, so I would consider bringing my dogs next time ??

I am so delighted that you enjoyed Great White and your time on Chincoteague! I agree, it's a very special house! The Owner is restoring "her" little by little - this house is his passion. I will share your suggestions with them, and we so hope to have y'all - and your pups - visit us in the future! Best, Elaine

This Old House
This was our third stay in Great White - so obviously we like it. The house does indeed have a lot of character. It's most important feature for us though is the fenced yard since we bring our dogs and like being able to let them out briefly without leashes. That said - I don't think the fence is sturdy enough to hold in a dog that was determined to get out - so clearly not a place to leave your dog when you're not actually in the house.
Kim B from Free Union VA - Posted: 9/23/2020

Kim, thank you so much for being such loyal guests to both us and Great White! That's great feedback on the fence that I'll definitely share with the owner, and see if something can be done about that. So happy we already have y'all booked for next year! Best, Elaine

Chincoteague Pony Fans!
Our third stay at Great White! Lots of charm comes with this older home. Great location - short walk to shopping on Main St and to the carnival grounds (where the ponies are).

Elaine - you are the greatest. You stayed calm and professional when dealing with my hubby and his heat related meltdown. Plus, you resolved the problem in a timely manner. Thanks!
