About Eileen Bloxom

I love my beach, its Chic's Beach and its locals. You can go to the Oceanfront, Williamsburg, Norfolk or down Shore Drive, but come back to a relaxing place; your own spot .

Eileen Bloxom purchased this townhome in 1996

Why Eileen Bloxom chose Chic's Beach

Great deck to sit out at night. The sunsets over the Chesapeake Bay are fabulous and you can walk for miles or surf fish for relaxation. Cornered by 4 restaurant/bars a block in each direction and a Mini-mart 1 block away; I think we have it all.

What makes this townhome unique

Kayaks and Paddleboarders would truly welcome the ramps at 250 ft. HK by the Bay, will deliver you food right on the beach............how fab is that! Launches for jet skis and small boats are a mere 2 miles away. 1 hr North is Williamsburg and 1 1/2 hour South is Kitty Hawk, NC, and Hatteras is 3 Hours if you can't find enough fun here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house was great. The location was great. The weather was great. The local restaurants were great. The dog park was great. Overall we had a GREAT time and so did Quincy. We will definitely keep you in mind the next time we visit the area. Thanks for your hospitality.

House at Chic's Beach

  • 1 of 5

When my husband and I and our Yorkie arrived 7:20 pm, Saturday, July 15th, 2017, we noticed that the house was very warm. We turned on the ceiling fans (we could not get the kitchen fan to work...possibly a separate switch) and I lowered the thermostat to 60 degrees around 7:45 pm. THE VENTS HAD VERY MINIMAL TO ALMOST NO AIRFLOW. We saw ANT TRAPS on the kitchen counters and window sills. ANTS started coming out on the COUNTERS and CLIMBING ON OUR BAGS and FOOD ITEMS that we had placed there. Then we saw ANTS going in and out on top of the STOVE. We looked everywhere for a phone number to contact the owner, since we had only communicated through emails. I did not have her number. We also could not find a password to use the WIFI. There was NO HELPFUL INFORMATION left for us about the house or the area. We could not stay in a house with ANTS AND POOR AC. There were also eggs and sour cream left in the refrigerator and frozen chicken in the freezer! We decided to leave in the morning since we had just driven 11 hours. The upstairs felt like an attic. I tried to sleep downstairs. I used the half-bath during the night and saw a couple of FLEAS hopping around on the white floor. We packed up and left by 6:00 am. The house was STILL WARM! On our way back home, I contacted HomeAway and they gave me the owner's phone number and recommended that I call her on Monday morning after some rest. The owner was going to contact HomeAway and get back to me. Later in the day she left a message stating that she was in the house and it was 64 degrees. I had lowered the temp TO 60 DEGREES 7:45 pm on SATURDAY NIGHT AND THE HOUSE WAS JUST NOW COOLING DOWN ON MONDAY AFTERNOON! She said she cleaned the house before we got there and did not see ants or fleas. Cleaning does not get rid of ANTS and FLEAS. She needed to FUMIGATE the house. I have sent emails to the owner with no response. We are willing to pay for the one night, but I do not think we should pay for the six nights we were not there. She said she would have put us up in a hotel if I would have called. As I said, I did not have her number and after ANTS, FLEAS and POOR AIR CONDITIONING, I just wanted to get out of there! We also had our Yorkie and our bikes with us which would have made it more difficult to stay anywhere else. I can't say much about Chic's Beach since we never had an opportunity to spend time there. I don't think I would ever go back to that area.

Owner's Response: Amazed and disturbed because we were never given any notice while you were on property and VRBO has 24/7!access to owners if you could not see our contact. The WIFI works as do fans in the whole house. The area was very taxed with record heat temperatures for 2 weeks; your actions caused additional problems on an over-taxed a/c system. Not the painter who came in nor the the new renters this week have a problem with pests, you never know when the problem is not onsuing. We have offered other options and our good will, sorry to no avail

PERFECT HOME!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent the last 3 months, January, February and March in Eileen's townhouse. The location was perfect! It was a block from the beach and walking distance to many of the best restaurants in the area. Close to breweries, winery and shopping. We spent the winter there to be close to family. The home was the perfect size and there is nothing we can think of that we needed that Eileen hadn't already provided. She was the perfect host calling to check on us to be sure everything was fine. Even in the off season this home was absolutely perfect, it must be truly amazing in the summer!

A perfect spot for us

  • 5 of 5

This rental was just perfect for us. So close to the beach, we loved having the parking right there, the house was spotless. We walked to 3 of the 4 local restaurants within 1-2 blocks. We had our dog with us and she loved running and playing with the other dogs on the beach. The house is on a no outlet street so there was little to no traffic. Very convenient to the highways but away from it all. We will be back.

Nice location!

  • 4 of 5

My wife, daughter and I visited Chx Beach and stayed for our second time in the owners home. We love the location and the 2 bedrooms are perfect for our small family. There is also enough parking for 2 cars and only a few minute walking distnace from the beach. The home was clean but it seemed the previous tenet smoked inside. I message the owner who was very sorry for the inconvenience. The owner was very responsive via text and was nice to work with. I would recommend checking out Buoy 44 right by for some food and drinks. Besides the smoke, the only other complaint i had is that there is only very basic cable. Not even ESPN, CNN. There is/was a Ruku player that we hooked up our netflix to, so not a big deal for the rainy days. Other than that, great place and highly recommended! -B

Excellent week at the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home. It was very convenient to the beach and close to our daughter and her family who live in Norfolk. Eileen was very responsive to my communication and came by several times to check on us. Excellent beach experience!
