Welcome to your next getaway on the Chesapeake Bay!

Book a week to remember!

It's time to escape the crazy! 2020 has been a rough go, hasn't it?

I want to you to take a minute...Envision yourself in a beach chair soaking in the rays with the gentle bay breeze whispering to your soul. Relax as your children play on a less crowded beach without having to worry about big waves and sudden, steep drop offs into the deep water. Late afternoon, follow the sky as the sun starts to set and experience the heavens exploding with color.

We have traveled the world and this is, hands down, one of my favorite sunset viewing locations. While offering a wide variety of activities,thisr relaxed Chesapeake Bay vacation will appeal to all of your family and friends.

"Bay Blessing is our favorite vacation home in all of Virginia Beach. We have been staying at Dana and Tom's home on the Chesapeake Bay for approximately eight years. What started out as an annual "boys trip" for six Virginia Tech fraternity buddies has now also turned into an annual family vacation with our children and grandchildren. This home is perfectly situated directly on the beach in a very quiet neighborhood and is within walking distance (or very short drive) to several popular bars/restaurants along Shore Drive including Hot Tuna, Shorebreak, La Pizzeria, Surf Rider, Dockside, and Chicks Oyster Bar. The tasteful decor and comfortable indoor/outdoor furnishings always make us feel at home. Because this home faces north, we get treated to beautiful sunrises and sunsets every single day. Our favorite feature is the outdoor living space including the sun room and fenced-in concrete patio overlooking the Bay; a perfect spot for meals, happy hours, and sunset watching. We express our appreciation to the McKees for sharing their wonderful beachfront home with us and can't wait to return each year. "

The Millers

"Bay Blessing was AMAZING. The best part was the deck with direct access right onto the beach. You could literally have one foot on the deck and one in the sand--no long paths, obtrusive dunes, etc. This was the PERFECT setup for keeping an eye on the little ones while sipping a cocktail and watching the sunset. Also, the McKee's were super accommodating hosts and were very quick to respond when we had a minor issue with strangers parking in our designated spots. We will be returning year after year. Would definitely recommend!"

One Happy Family

"We are super excited to return to this home multiple times a year. It is, hands down, the most relaxed we are all year. It is always really clean and the McKees are so easy to work with. They always make sure we have everything we need. Our kids are on the sand upon waking and come in to eat and go right back out. Perfect for families who need to unwind without the fear of your kids getting swept out to sea. This is the BEST location and all of the neighbors are wonderful! "

The Jones Family

"We’ve been going to the Bay Blessing beachhouse yearly for over a decade now. For me and my extended family, its our summer happy place. It’s one of those places where the sights, sounds, smells automatically bring joy and peace to every one of us. My kids, nieces and nephews grew up with visiting this place every summer. We love the proximity to the beach – there really is nothing like the convenience of having coffee with your toes in the water while the kids are safely sleeping. The restaurant variety is also amazing – so many choices. It’s a perfect place to reconnect with family and loved ones. Can’t wait to go back !"

Birds of the Chesapeake Bay

One of my favorite past times is to watch the birds at the bay. I am envious of them at times as they seem to come and go as they please. Something about the beach just makes everyone laid back! I think we could all learn a little from them.

Like I said, it's time to escape the crazy! And to think we thought it would all be better by 2021. Well, I can promise you (at least while you are here)...here at our bayfront home...all will be right with the world. Take time to grill out with the family while watching the sunset. Have a glass of wine and read a book in the middle of the day! Wear your pajamas on the beach. You do you. Whatever that means. Everything is close to our home- from grocery stores to restaurants (dine in, pick up, and deliver). Don't let the sun set on one more night without a booked vacation. Our calendar is filling fast so please contact us now.
