"Lightwood House is a true treasure. The beauty of the house and the grounds are breathtaking. With a personal welcome from the owner, Cliff, we walked in the front door to a most welcoming home, flawlessly restored and furnished to capture its history, and moved on to find every amenity any vacation destination could offer. Adults and children alike were intrigued with the house and its history, and everyone enjoyed exploring the grounds, the trails and the relaxing, peaceful moments on the porch and patio overlooking the beautiful garden and impeccably kept grounds. The ferry across the James River is very convenient to the house, runs often, and is a short and scenic ride to the Jamestown and Williamsburg attractions. Lightwood House is the perfect place for any getaway. We couldn’t be happier with our choice for our home away from home for our family vacation, and if only we could have stayed longer! It is a destination not to be missed for any kind of getaway. Cliff enhanced our experience from the planning stage through our stay with his most informative communication from our first inquiry and all through the week. Lightwood House is a treasure and our memories are priceless. Our thanks for sharing this amazing home with us."

"While I have used VRBO often - David exemplifies everything a renter could look for when renting here. He was courteous and very quick to respond. He responded to every email/question thoughtfully and completely. As others have stated - the reservation, check-in, check-out and stay were very smooth and pleasant. The condo was perfectly located for sightseeing (Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown) but was secluded and quiet so you could relax at the end of a busy day. The staff of the resort were extremely helpful and coureous. We did experience an issue with the air conditioning but the staff came right out and fixed the issues. I would not hestite in recommending this location to anyone should they be traveling to the Williamsburg area and I will definetly be looking for this listing if I again find myself heading that direction. I fell in love with the Williamsburg area and this condo was the perfect end to many perfect days of exploring."

"We've enjoyed this resort so much, we had to do it twice. The resort is loaded with things to do, including pools, mini-golf, tennis, paddleball, hot tub and boards games for rainy days. Great location to stores, restaurants, Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg. Kitchen and bathrooms are nice and well equipped. Beds are very comfortable. Backyard views of the lake, complete with ducks and swans were so relaxing. Highly recommended."

"This home is the perfect getaway in a most desirable section of Virginia Beach. The furnishings are so very tasteful and comfortable. I loved relaxing on the screened porch and viewing the garden and enjoyed the multiple inside and outside dining opportunities. My favorite was the very private outside shower. We found the nearby beach beautiful and uncrowded. I look forward to staying here again."
