No, it’s never too early to book a beach vacation rental home in quaint Cape Charles or anywhere on the Eastern Shore of Virginia for that matter ! I personally believe that the anticipation of a fun event is actually half the pleasure ( or if not half, at least a lot ). Part of the fun, of course, is perusing the options. How many people are going to be in our group ? How big of a house ? Is overlooking the beach important or is being a block or two away fine ? Figuring all this out really gets the ole neurons firing and a lot of exciting conversation going. Once all that is figured out, time to start looking at the pretty pictures— pictures of the house, the bedrooms, the kitchen, the great room and of course, critically, the beach and, of course, the location, the state and town. And making summertime plans now helps chase away some of the winter blahs ! Definitely I am not an impartial observer, but I do think that Cape Charles offers everything that a coastal vacation should include: beach, boating, golf, shopping, restaurants, entertainment, all at a peaceful pace in a quaint, small coastal town setting, your launch point for great vacation adventures and memories. ( Certainly many a person has liked Cape Charles so much they decided to buy a home of their own there and join our vacation rental program.)
Once you’ve made your selection, then let the fun really start as the “Countdown to Summer” begins. I know a lot of people likely agree with this because many of our beach vacation weekly rental homes are currently getting lots of inquiries and it’s only mid-February. Because of our moderate year-round climate, on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, the temperates all week are going to be 50+ degrees under sunny blue skies. In a week or two, our first camellias will be bursting into bloom, bringing glorious shades of pinks, violets, reds, even variegated reds and whites to winter weary yards. But in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and points further north, it’s still very cold outside and many folks are probably staring out the window at a couple feet of unmelted snow and stark bare trees. ( I had a customer tell me the other day that his Christmas yard decorations are frozen fast to the ground, no idea when he’ll be able to wrestle them out. ) So I think there is something really cheery about planning a beach vacation, anticipating relaxing in the warm golden sun, reading your book, listening to music, musing what to BBQ for dinner after everyone gets back from the beach as all the while outside the winds are howling and the snow drifts are practically up to the eves !
