We really enjoyed our stay. The house was in great condition. We found everything we needed pretty much like home. We took the kayaks out and also went for several bike tours around the Island. Looking forward to returning. Wish I was there now going for a bike ride!
Much better than a Hotel!

Patty, We had a great time fishing with Captain Harry and the Kingfish II. We would recommend him to any of your future guests interested in chartering a fishing trip. We were also very pleased with the house and the accommodations. They were more than comfortable and exceeded those of a hotel. You have a cozy little place there and if we ever make it out that way again, we will look into renting your property again.Thanks,John

This is a really quaint house and area. The home suited myself and two daughters for a birthday weekend get-away. We were grateful to be able to bring my daughter's two dogs. The house had everything we needed, we used the kayaks just two minutes away. The home was clean. The surrounding area is really laid back and quiet. We ate at Arby's which is a must! Can't say enough about the help we got from Wanda when we needed it. The owners were also quick to correspond with us. If you are looking to see a different part of Maryland, and if you are looking for a quiet get-away, this is the place.
Quiet Getaway in a Beautiful Waterview home

This was our second visit to this awesome home in the sleepy little fishing village on Deal Island! We had spectacular weather, ate lots of seafood and enjoyed the views from the deck every chance we got. The home is beautifully decorated and oh so cozy. Best part is being able to take our four legged 'daughter' Piper with us. She loved her evening walks around the harbor and trips to the Deal Island beach, which we often had to ourselves. Would highly recommend this great home for the perfect Eastern Shore getaway. We'll be back! :)

We had a great time at the Sunrise~Sunset cottage! The cottage itself was just right for our family of 4 plus the dog. The views were amazing and we enjoyed the night breeze on the deck. As for Deal Island...what a hidden gem! The beach was great, very clean, and plenty of soft sand. The kids loved looking for sea glass on the beach. We also enjoyed canoeing and crabbing from the pier. Even caught enough to steam for dinner! We had great crab cakes and even better company at Arby's and had a really good meal at Peaky's. Wanda was so great and answered all of my silly questions. We will definitely be planning a trip back. Thanks Patty and Bill!

We loved sitting upatairs surrounded by beautiful views on all sides! Even in the rain the screen porch was perfect for rocking and listening to the water and birds. The locals were friendly helpful and generous. Peaky's fresh fried chicken and seafood in Princess anne was well worth the drive . In all you have a gem of a cottage! Many thanks Jennifer Morton with 3 generations of family. Thank you so much! we all enjoyed your delightful cottage. Your neighbors were welcoming folks at Arby's were friendly and helpful. The location is beautiful- a rest for mind and souls. We'll certainly recommend your home to friends who would enjoy a peaceful vacation in a lovely spot Pete and Cindy (the old folks)

The home was just beautiful and the views are amazing. My family had and amazing time while staying on the island. Deal Island beach is perfect to bring your family to relax. We enjoyed the peacefulness and the water views are breathtaking. When I got out of my car when I arrived it was like wow. The bay views are just stunning. Even enjoyed a night around the fire pit making smores. Also went to my nieces house nearby and had steamed crabs and a nice family gathering . This vacation is at the top of my list as perfect.

Amazing Vacation Spot

This is one of the best place I have ever visited. Right next to the bay and so quiet. I am from New York and the traffic and pollution here is just terrible. Visiting Deal Island is one of the best thing to do ever. If you are from any metropolitan city then this place is for you. I visited this place with my family and a family friend and one of my cousin who was there for 2 days. None of them had anything negative to say about the place. This place is just awesome and I would highly recommend any of you who are looking to relax their mind and need some peace. Also, the neighbors right opposite this house are very generous and kind. They are very friendly and happy go nature kind of people. It's hard to find neighbors like them. All in all, I would say it was an amazing stay here and we had fun. Even if you don't want to go out anywhere, you can just stay home and cook and walk around the area. There is also a harbor right around the corner. I would love to visit this place again for my next vacation. :) Nik & Eena
A perfect Getaway

We were sorry to go - we had a really wonderful, relaxing time at your house. Got some seafood at that place in Princess Anne that you had a brochure for - scallops, oysters, grouper and cream of crab soup was on our menu for Valentine's Day. Delicious! We had taken a prime rib roast down with us which we had yesterday for dinner. So nice to be eating a delicious meal while watching the spectacular sunset last night. All in all, a perfect getaway. You are blessed to have such a lovely home, and yes, we hope to get back down there when the weather gets warmer. Thank you again. Take care and God bless. Rick and Linda

Dear Patty and Bill. We so enjoyed our stay at your cottage. We were just getting "into" the island when it was time for us to leave. Wish we could've stayed another week or more. The bay view is so beautiful. Couldn't stop looking out from the living room window. Everyone was like family. Holland and Dave were so very helpful. Your neighbors Ernesto and Jody were so nice. My son, daughter-in-law, granddaughters and John went kayaking for the first time. My son told us that if we buy a house on the island he will supply the kayaks. Would love for our other 7 grandchildren to experience the island. . Thanks so much ! You have been wonderful to deal with. I plan to write a review on the website. Many thanks. John, Patty and family

Thank you. We had a great time. We think Deal Island is a hidden gem.
Just a note to let you know that a check for the balance for our rental beginning September 8th is in the mail today. We saw the new pix that were added on the website ... you're killing me! Needless to say, we are really looking forward to our trip.
Hope you are all enjoying the summer! Thanks so much.
We visited the beach near the Deal Island Bridge at least three times and had the entire beach to ourselves. The water was 77 degrees, and we were able to hop right in!
If you travel to Wenona, you?ll meet some of the nicest people in the area. Everyone was friendly and helpful and, more than anything, so welcoming! Arby, Debbie, Holland ? all great people!
We also enjoyed excursions to the wonderful Salisbury Zoo (amazing), Crisfield, and Chincoteague Island. The beach at Chincoteague was just breathtaking! Also, the wildlife museum there is very special.
Don?t hesitate to book a stay at the Sunrise/Sunset Cottage. It?s a place where you can relax and really take things slow.
Thank you so much for allowing us to use your lovely home. We had the best time. The kids had an awesome time fishing . Thank you for the best vacation we have had yet!!!

Susanne Casterline's comment on Deal Island from: http://www.facebook.com/dealislandvacations It's a small island located on MD's Eastern Shore - the land that time forgot. Where God isn't a dirty word, He's real. The scenery is beautiful and the wildlife, waterfowl and fishing abound. Where people truly care about one another and where the words compassion, humility, honesty and hard work are still a part of their vocabulary. 5 out of

"Awesome beach adventure!"
My Family had a wonderful stay in your cottage. It was a well maintained property, and clean. We had 4 teenagers, and they were never bored! The beach on Deal Island is small, but very private and most the time we had it to ourselves. At sunset we would go find more glass and shells than i have EVER seen anywhere before. We boated to little deal island where we explored the island. It is a bit on the rough side, but that was its charm. Totally inhabited by anything but pure nature, and its creatures. We found so many strange objects that kept the kids searching for more. We even found a perfect glass bottle from the 30's totally intact on the beach! My husband and i did do some fishing from the boat, and we caught some fish. I even had a crab on the line! We took the option offered to rent he motor boat , where the others rentals didn't offer boat rentals. Arby and his family (and all the locals) were very kind and helpful with everything. We even went to "Luckys" and had our last dinner there, and they even gave me a piece of cake with a sparkler for my birthday which was that day. All in all, it was a very relaxing vacation, and i would recommend it to anyone who wants to get back to the basics of nature and quiet. We made a quick day trip to Ocean City, which made the kids happy, but i hated it and couldn't wait

We had a wonderful vacation! Caught lots of fish including a great big flounder which we cooked for dinner. On our way back into the Wenona Harbor we saw some Dolphins who after we stopped came right up to the boat. That was the first time we have seen live dolphins. The house was really nice. We spent lots of time relaxing on the screened Porch.

Patty & Bill, OMG you have such a lovely place on Deal Island. Terence & I loved it. Everyone treated us so nice and cordial. Arby is the man though....Unfortunately, Terence & I did not go fishing or crabbing because I think we were relaxing and just chillin and enjoying the peace and quiet. The listing description was 100% correct. The property was cleaned and very well maintained. The owners showed excellent customer service and great communication. Please keep me in mind for next year, I would love to come back to do it all over again. I also wrote you a little note and stuck it on the notebook on the counter. Thank you again, Nicole & Terenc
