The Happy Crab - Where dreams are made of Sun and Sand…..

There's only one thing more precious than our time, and that is who we spend it on. Life is busy - just getting the family together can be such a challenge in today's world, but nothing is more important than doing just that. Clear the calendar, grab those you love, and head to Chincoteague Island to make Memories that you'll treasure forever.

The Happy Crab is a Duplex Home that sleeps 6 more than comfortably, and is located in desirable Piney Island, the closest community to Assateague National Seashore. Ride your bike to the Beach, Dining, Activities, and more! You'll love returning to this tranquil Waterfront Community lined with whispering Pines, which even has its own Kayak Launch area. Sitting directly on the Assateague Channel, you have incredible Views of both the Channel and Assateague Island right from your two-levels of decking. With a Pier shared with only one other home, you'll love fishing and crabbing in your own backyard - or harvest some of our famous Oysters at low tide, only steps from the shoreline. There's also super-easy access to launch your kayak or canoe, and if you're bringing your boat, you can tie it up right at the Pier.

This adorable Waterfront Home has it all - including the warmth and comfort of a true family home. As you pull into the driveway, you know you've made the right choice - the Pine Trees swaying and Tree Frogs singing couldn't be more welcoming - and ahhh, that salty, sweet breeze. Climbing the stairs to the 1st Floor, you'll love the Open Living Area with plenty of comfy seating, Flat Screen Cable TV, and stunning Views galore. With 2 Waterfront Decks, a Waterfront Screened Porch, and 2 other Decks, you won’t know where to begin and end every amazing Vacation Day - so many choices! The Happy Crab sits high, maximizing every gorgeous glimpse of our beautiful bay and Assateague Island.

Down the Hall, there's a huge Dining Area with a table that seats 8 - a great place to gather and share stories of the day's Adventures. The Chef in your family will love the well-stocked Kitchen with all you need to make mealtime a bay breeze. You can also dine Al Fresco on the Deck and take in that salty, sweet sea breeze.

The Happy Crab even has a 2nd Living Area, just off the Dining Room. With another Flat Screen Cable TV, it's a great place to catch a movie or curl up with a good book. Just off of this room, you'll find the most relaxing Waterfront Screened Porch ever - and OH, those Views! Also, while no one likes doing laundry, you'll appreciate the convenience of the Washer and Dryer on this level, as well. There is also a convenient Half Bath just off the Living Area.

Wandering upstairs, there are 3 spacious Bedrooms and 2 Full Baths. The Master Bedroom features a comfy Queen Bed, Flat Screen Cable TV, and access to a Private Waterfront Balcony - slip outside to stargaze while everyone sleeps peacefully, or enjoy morning coffee here with a Sunrise. The Master Bath has a Walk-in Shower. Down the Hall, Bedroom 2 has 2 Twin Beds, and Bedroom 3 has a Full Bed. A 2nd Full Bath with a Tub/Shower Combo is located in the Hall.

With the Assateague Channel as your backyard, and Assateague National Seashore just a short bike ride away, you really can have it all at The Happy Crab! Chincoteague and Assateague are a Nature Lover's Dream - perfect for pony-lovers, photographers, and bird-watchers. There's even an Outdoor Shower to rinse off after a day exploring the Beach. You can either bring your own Kayaks, or we're happy to help you arrange for rentals to be delivered! So, what are you waiting for? Paradise is calling.....

The Happy Crab - Don’t Worry, Beach Happy!

The Happy Crab does NOT have a grill, but you are welcome to bring your own small grill.

Short week in Chincoteague
My family had a 4 day stay in Chincoteague and the Happy Crab was perfect. Great location. Not far from the beach. Secluded, quiet neighborhood.

Perfect Size For Our Family
The Happy Crab was the perfect size for our family of 5. My husband and I loved having coffee on the screened in porch and the kids loved watching the birds and boats from the front decks and the dock. The house is actually a duplex but when we were there in early June there were no other guests staying nearby. The area was very quiet and peaceful.

Very quiet!
The Happy Crab was in a quiet location and had great views of the water and sunrise. Check in was very simple and it was nice to have a hose available outside to rinse the salt off.

Great location!
We really enjoyed our stay at Happy Crab. The location is perfect- on the water- with great views and easy access to the park. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and the home worked well for us! Thank you!

Love!
We had a great stay at the Happy Crab! It was just the right size for our family. We loved eating on the screened porch & waking up to that view. This was our 3rd stay at a Seaside Vacations property & we have been so pleased each time. Every home we?ve stayed in has been so clean & comfortable, and the staff is so friendly & helpful. Thank you!!

I see linen is not included. I am curious as to whether blankets and pillows are included? And towels? Or would I need to bring all?
Kelly O - Posted: 07/08/2021

Answer:

As of November 2022, all of our properties do include bed linens and towels!

Where will we go on check in day to get the key? Is there a central office? Is it digital? We check in this Sunday and this is our first time renting through Seaside Vacations. Thank you.
