Julie was AMAZING! The perfect host, I was able to reached her by phone and text before my trip. She offered her favorite shops and restaurants. The beach was clean and quiet, which was a pleasant surprise because it was July 4th. I look forward to booking another day trip

Thanks Kristian! As word gets out about how close this is to DC, I'm hopeful that more people will be able to take advantage of this opportunity to unwind.

My family had a great day at the beach. Julie was very friendly and accommodating. She even allowed us use of her inflatable boat for the kids.

My little family really needed a quick getaway during this quarantine. Julie was able to help us reset by providing us with a beach day opportunity. I highly recommend booking this location, especially if you have a senior that loves the beach! We went on a Friday, this location was very secluded and the bathrooms are currently open with regular cleaning!! Julie was very patient and responsive; she answered all of my questions! Can’t wait to come back!

I never guessed there was a practically-private beach just 45 minutes from DC. Great spot that is safe and shallow enough for kids and netting all around to keep (most) of the jellyfish out. We will be back! The little surf and bait shop selling ice cream bars was a plus.

We had such a nice time. It was the perfect escape. Julie was very welcoming, helpful and had great communication. Our family had a lovely time playing on the beach, looking for shark teeth and playing in the water. Julie even loaned us a floaty boat and my son had a blast. I would definitely recommend.

I am so glad that your family got to enjoy the beach before the hurricane. Seeing the simple joy on your son's face is why I will open up some dates on the calendar when the jellyfish subside.

Really enjoyed our day at the beach! Julie was very friendly and I had a good time meeting her. We went to the beach with her guest pass, which is a limited access Chesapeake Bay beach (during the pandemic) so it was great to enjoy a non-crowded beach day on the Bay! We are being very careful to avoid public places, so we didn't use the playground or picnic tables at the beach. In addition to being kind and friendly, Julie wore a mask and distanced well when I saw her to get the beach pass, which helped us feel comfortable. This is a daytime experience, which worked well for us. Definitely keep in mind this is a natural beach on the Chesapeake Bay so you may see some jellyfish, crabs, etc, and there are lots of seagulls! We had fun and would definitely do this again!

Bay beach! In the background is a net that I think keeps jellyfish away (a few slip through) -- and a lot of seagulls!

Beautiful spot and very empty for us. Only a few families. We had gorgeous weather. The public restrooms were immaculate.

Julie was Great.... Myself and my daughter was able to hang out with her and her daughter that was the same age. They was a horrible event where her friend lost his life and she still tried to be a great host!!! We will be returning Soon for the fall ☺
