A world away from it all, Hoopers' Island is actually comprised of three islands that are home to authentic, working watermen villages. The main island was allegedly obtained from the Yaocomico Indians. Bay Water Cottage is wonderfully appointed with beautiful contemporary and organic architecture. We love the shade trees, the expansive water views, the individual bedroom balconies, the deck and private dock fabulous for fishing and crabbing! If you like to paddle, take advantage of the three kayaks and the canoe that are provided for guests. Look closely at the exterior photos and you will get a glimpse of your own island/sand bar on which to relax. Envision paddling a picnic lunch, cooler and blanket over to your sand bar and spending the day swimming and soaking in the sun. Should your refreshments dwindle, it's an easy paddle back. At day's end, store your boats and relax dockside to drink in the sunset views, play a game of ping pong, and grill out. For further exploration, while you're in the area, check out Blackwater Wildlife Refuge and the Harriet Tubman National Park Visitor Center, which are practically at your doorstep. https://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p9396678 https://www.vrbo.com/9396678ha https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/42407048

The staff were friendly, efficient, and helpful. The property was clean and well managed, and accurately represented on the website. The latches on two sliding glass doors need repairing; they don't lock: 1) downstairs right-hand door, 2) upstairs left-hand bedroom. One step on the set that goes from the back porch to the yard (right side) needs repairing; it's not anchored on the right-hand side and could break if someone heavy steps on it in the wrong place. We really loved this property! We really enjoyed this cottage for its location, its interior spaciousness and light, and, of course, the spectacular views. Inside, we liked the feel and flow of the first floor in particular. The kitchen was well equipped. Outside, we loved the dock. We chose this property over others specifically because it provided kayaks, so we enjoyed exploring the marshes to the south of the property with those. One suggestion: if the owners ever replace the mattresses, we'd recommend they choose something a little firmer; the beds were very soft.

Liked the experience. Everything done online was simple easy, straightforward. The house listing was correct and updated, didn't lead me astray and gave me some confidence that ESVR was honest about their properties. As this was my first time with you all, I was hesitant but willing to give you a try and we had a nice time. Liked the experience. Everything done online was simple easy, straightforward.

As this was my first time with you all, I was hesitant but willing to give you a try and we had a nice time. There's no beach and that private island is a bit of a stretch. There is a sandbar but calling it an island is like calling Madagascar a continent. However the big thing was the 2 BR's that railroad into each other. It wasn't apparent in the listing that you would have to walk thru a bedroom to get to one of the 4 br's so that was quite surprising. Really the only negative thing about our trip was that. Bugs are an issue but not a deterrent. Fishing was tough to come by. but the water sports were jolly good fun and the ping pong table and garage were a nice addition.

Easy to use Timely info Nice staff when I called to change our week. This was a wonderful place for us to escape with our 3 teens. We spent hours on the dock, exploring with kayaks, and laying in hammocks. The view never got dull as we watched the ships go by and enjoyed beautiful sunsets each evening. We had tons of wildlife sightings. We made memories when catching enough crabs for 2 crab feasts. The house itself had enough space for our teens to spread out when needed. We loved that we could see the water all the time no matter what room we were in. All in all this was what we were looking for..a remote place to daytrip from right on the water. Online description was accurate.

Your website is easy to search and the selection of homes seemed to offer options for a wide variety of tastes. I'd suggest more detail about specific areas/homes would be helpful. For example, based on the rental agreement it seemed we'd need to arrive with all paper goods and yet we found the house stocked with essentials (in addition to a good collection of kitchen basics: spices, coffee filters, etc.) The cottage information book on the kitchen counter was in terrible shape, as if someone had dropped it in a puddle and dried it out. Didn't make a good first impression, but the cottage was pristine and very well laid out and comfortable. The cottage was perfect for our group. We all enjoy outdoor activities as well as lots of reading time and so we bicycled and kayaked and barbecued and read. The house worked well for the family with children with its two-bedroom suite; would not be good for unrelated parties. The water views and wildflife are unsurpassed and the house's amenities met almost all our needs. Everyone wants more wifi speed, but that was not a deal-breaker (our Verizon devices got a decent signal; AT&T not as good).
