Chincoteague Vacation: “Tranquil Shores”
We spent 5 nights (April 7th through April 11th), at Chincoteague, Virginia in an Airbnb rental called “Tranquil Shores”. Our host, Joseph, gave me permission to include details of his Airbnb in a blog post. The complete listing for this AirBnB rental may be seen by clicking here.
Here is a Google Map picture of our Airbnb accommodation.
“Tranquil Shores” is the right side of this duplex house. We had use of that entire side of the duplex. The entrance to the home was via the wooden steps on the side of the house. We entered the door code, opened the door and we walked inside. The entry door opens to the kitchen.
The kitchen contains all the essentials of cooking and dining to include cookware, dinnerware, utensils, stove, oven, microwave, toaster, coffeemaker, spices, and so much more. We didn’t use it, but there was coffee grounds in the freezer for the coffeemaker. We brought the tea kettle that you see in this picture. We boiled water for hot tea and coffee. Bob used an Aeropress to make coffee.
The kitchen and living room form a Great Room.
The living room was comfortable, and we made frequent use of the screened porch.
In addition to the kitchen and living room, this Airbnb rental has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms (queen bed and twin bed) and one bathroom are located downstairs. A washer and dryer are located in the downstairs bathroom. The master bedroom (king bed) and second bathroom are located on the second floor. There is access to a balcony from the master bedroom. We made use of only the master bedroom. The bed was very comfortable and provided for a good night’s sleep. Bed linens and towels are not provided in the rental cost. They are available, however, for an added fee of $10.00 per bed. We saved $10.00 by bringing our own towels and bed linens.
This AirBnB rental is located at the end of a quiet road.
The rental cost was approximately $55.00 less than the cost of a King Bed with Balcony hotel room at Best Western Chincoteague, where we have stayed in past visits. “Tranquil Shores” was a much nicer accommodation than staying in a room in a hotel! We had lots more space, and we were able to eat in or eat out, as desired. We ate breakfast and either lunch or dinner at home, during our stay. Our view at “Tranquil Shores” was much, much better than at Best Western Chincoteague too. At Best Western Chincoteague, if you booked a balcony room, your view was the McDonald’s Restaurant across the street. Compare that view with the view from the screened porch and balcony of our Airbnb rental.
We enjoyed daily sunrises, sunsets and wildlife viewings, while at Tranquil Shores.
I highly recommend “Tranquil Shores” to individual travelers, couples, and families. You will be within a couple miles of downtown Chincoteague and Assateague Island where you can enjoy Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge and the Assateague Island National Seashore. We brought our bicycles with us and enjoyed rides in the neighborhood, several rides at the wildlife refuge, as well as one ride from “Tranquil Shores” to the wildlife refuge.
Thank you, Joseph, for sharing your home with us. We will return!

This looks like a perfect vacation spot.
Hello, looks like you found a great place to stay at Chincoteague. The Best Western used to be our favorite hotel there but they have gone up in price over the years. Thanks for sharing. I bookmarked their AirBnb link.
Linda, you and Bob always seem to find such fantastic places to visit and travel to! You should give consideration to becoming a travel agent! lol Then you could write some of these trips off as a business expense. Thank you so much for sharing your experience(s)!
It looks like a very comfortable place and a great location. I do like the idea of an Airbnb rather than a hotel room. Thanks for all the info. I also have bookmarked this for when we head down that way. It has been a while and we are way overdue for another visit.
Did you mean $55 less per night or for the entire visit? I don’t know why I ask cause I won’t be going there. Either way, it would be worth more for those kind of views! And to have the convenience of eating in or doing a bit of laundry…you could go home with everything clean if you so chose!
It cost $55 less for the entire visit. I did go home, with everything clean 🙂
