Pros:
Nestled in pine forest, well shaded so that AC was not necessary for most of our 2 week stay (esp when we could borrow fans from the management company).
Very quiet neighborhood.
Just a couple of blocks from the Chincoteague circle, so very convenient to the beach.
The photos are representative of the house (which now has central air, nice when needed). The beds (even the queen sleeper sofa) were sufficiently comfortable and the house was spotless and smelled clean when we moved in.
The kitchen is sufficient and well-stocked with pots, pans, and tableware.
The screened in porch with ceiling fans is the best part of the house.

Cons:
I don't know if it's because we're in a pine forest or if it's just a bad year for them, but the mosquitoes are occasionally epic, to the point when we had to slather ourselves with bug spray just to go to the car. Warmer, more humid weather = worse mosquitoes.
The full bath is a little dated but perfectly functional. Usually we'd use the outdoor shower for our post-beach shower, but reference the mosquito comment above.
The dog pen isn't really useful. You can't just open the porch door and send your dogs out into a fenced-in area. You'd be better off bringing a retractable lead so your dog can do his/her business in the large but not fenced yard.

Tips:
If you don't bring food with you but plan on cooking for yourselves, do your major shopping at the Walmart in Pocomoke City. It's only about 20 min away, but worth it. Any fill-in stuff can be gotten at the Food Lion near Rt 13, and emergencies (milk, beer) can be taken care of at the Island Grocery.
