Eureka! on Deep Hole Creek is the Premier Waterfront Vacation Rental on Chincoteague. 
It is in a class of its own.  No other house on Chincoteague can legally accommodate nearly as many people. 
Very few have similarly fabulous locations and views.

Handicapped Accessible:
Eureka! has an Elevator in the Main Building:
1). The opening in the elevator door when the accordion door is fully open: 33 inches
2). The depth of the elevator cab- 41 inches
3). The width of the elevator cab- 42 1/2 inches
and one of the king bedrooms in the main house has a shower area that is fully accessible via wheelchair.

Stupendous, Epic and Fantastic are words that almost begin to describe the site, the view, the intriguing custom design and the amenities.  We are continually making improvements; our goal is that those superlatives are also used by each guest to describe every aspect of their stay at Eureka!

Several weddings have been held at Eureka!  We have also hosted corporate retreats and yoga workshops.  Whether you have a large group for a family reunion/beach week, or a more specialized group that needs to get together for some other reason, this is the place to be. 

Eureka! is quite literally right on, and over, the water!  Two miles to the bridge to Assateague and the Chincoteague
National Wildlife Refuge and the beach at Assateague. About a mile to the downtown area of Chincoteague.

A floating dock

Warning!  If you have young toddlers not yet at the "age of reason", you will need to exercise total vigilance when they are anywhere near the water's edge, which is pretty much anywhere on the outdoor ground level at the house.  Some guests have asked if we have plans to put up a child-proof railing.  The answer is NO.  It is simply not possible to child-proof our dock and surrounding areas.  When you look at the photos of the decks & docks, you will see why.
