This beautiful home offers everything, and more, one could ask for in a vacation rental. The view of the water is spectacular and we were able to enjoy those views in the comfort of rocking chairs, bug free, with cool breezes on the screened in porch. The island itself is a beautiful place to ride bikes, especially over the causeway to the end of the island.The wildlife is unbelievable, with Eagles, Egrets, and Blue Herons at every turn. The proximity to the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge (an experience not to be missed!), Layton's Chance Winery , and St. Michael's made it the perfect home base for our trip. Priscilla was a pleasure to work and provided absolutely everything we needed during out trip.

We came to Hoopers Island looking for three days of tranquility, and that is exactly what we found. The house is beautiful and was a great place to stay. The pool table was an extra bonus. The food and service at Old Salty’s restaurant was great. We walked and rode bicycles on the island and drove to the nearby Blackwater Wildlife Reserve. The pictures online show the house and surrounding area as we found them to be. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway. The only thing I would add is if you like to cook bring some of your own pots and pans.
Best Kept Secret by the Bay is just that! The house was as described and pictured and equipped with everything we needed during our stay there 8/31/15-9/7/15. The house looked almost new-bright, clean, inviting and in a great location on Hooper's Island. It was a short walk to the private dock on the Honga River where we crabbed,watched birds flying or nesting nearby as well as watching the boats going into or out of nearby docks. Relaxation is a given on this island -walking, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, sitting on the screened in porch with a good book or just watching and listening to the surroundings!
