Virginia Beach house description

***NOTE to Guests: WE ARE NOT YET RENTING FOR JUNE 2014 OR BEYOND, but feel free to inquire *** The Oceanfront privacy at the prestigious North End of Virginia Beach is simply the Best at the Beach. The expansive unobstructed views of the Ocean from the 3rd floor living room and full length balcony are just spectacular. And the stars at night away from the downtown glow? Stunning and crystal clear. This is one of the very few properties which has an ocean view for miles of the beach, North and South. A chairlift helps guests as needed to each floor, an amenity not found in any other oceanfront house to my knowledge. The Kids can stay in their bunk beds with private bath on the 1st floor, while Mom, Dad and the rest choose between the (i) Oceanfront Master Bedroom Queen bed with full bath, (ii) Oceanfront Guestroom with Queen bed, (iii) North Guestroom with Queen bed or (iv) West Guestroom with 2 double beds, all served by well appointed full bath, together with hallway sink and mirror outside of the full bath, just to freshen up. Park as many as you please on the concrete driveway, big enough for your boat trailer (or two) and all your friends. After the beach, use the outdoor shower to rinse off salt and sand as you fire up the grill. Cook and bake to your heart's content in the wall ovens or use the new in 2013 ceramic stove-top range. Warming lights above shelves at the range keep foods ready for the table. Keep things cool in the new 2013 Onyx black double door side by side refrigerator/freezer with through the door water and ice dispenser. This is a great house, and you deserve to stay here. We rent for 7 day minimums from Saturday to Saturday during the season and 3 day minimums during the off season. If you have a question, just ask! I thank you in advance for choosing our house for your stay at the Beach. We would love to have you as our Guest on the Oceanfront. -=DH=-

If you look hard enough around sunset, you might catch a glimpse of the shy little gray fox.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: Custom built by our father, this house is named 'upside down house' by friends due to the kitchen and 30' living room being on the 3rd floor. Locating these most popular rooms at the top guarantees fully unobstructed Ocean views through 2 sets of sliding glass doors with cathedral ceiling.

              Why the Owner Chose Virginia Beach:
              As youngsters spending summers at the beach we fished off the beach, trained our 3 retrievers and learned about aquatic life and the ecology of the dunes during the countless lazy hours of search and discovery. Dad built this house he said, 'because the woman and children like the beach and I get to fish and watch the Ocean'. Navy men like the Ocean.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This house is in a very private location yet just minutes by car to grocery, restaurant and all the night life of the Beach. Walks on the beach headed south are filled with beach-goers while a walk to the North finds tidal pools and a more tranquil experience on a beach with no houses, only dunes. NO OTHER HOUSE for rent at the beach can boast it is closest to the secluded beach at Ft. Story. Solitude abounds for your favorite Summer Read on these expansive balconies at 8804 Oceanfront, or down on the Beach; a special joy to all who partake of that time. Bike riding is safest at the North End with less traffic parallel to Atlantic Avenue and the dedicated bike paths meandering into Seashore State Park and all the way downtown to the Boardwalk . Fine dining is moments away 'through the woods' along Shore Drive, (State Route 60). This is the closest Oceanfront rental house to the restaurants along the Chesapeake Bay to the West. Can you entertain here? You bet. The open plan of the 3rd floor allows guests to cook, sit, dine, recline on comfortable couches and chairs or meander on the balcony with the fresh Ocean breezes dead ahead, always in view. With our family, Mom gathered a host of friends and extended family around the table. Dad would grill either steaks or fresh seafood caught or bought locally, then wash it all down with 'an occasional Toddy', being beer, wine or whatever you please from the bar adjoining the Kitchen. got kites? There is no better place for kite flying than the Beach. I bought kites, but mostly built my own and flew them at the end of a fishing pole to control the relentless tug of the Ocean Breeze hundreds of feet up. And yes, I lost a few kites which are probably still floating over Spain somewhere by now. This indeed is a lively spot for all, or as serene a scene as you need it to be.
