Recent Virginia Beach reviews

  • Great House!!!!

    "My family took our first vacation together in June 2014 to Virginia. This house is absolutely awesome!! It was more than we expected. The owners attention to the smallest details were amazing. The kitchen is FULLY stocked, even down to having little silver spoons for my babies to eat with. I'm one of those people that gets "weirded out" if I have to sleep in someone else's bed, but this place was soooo clean that it felt like home. The beach is less than a 5 minute walk. There are tons of great restaurants close by and I even found a Target. I could go on and on about the great things this home has to offer (POOL AND ELEVATOR!!!) just know that my family will be back next year and we can't wait!"

  • Beautiful condo

    "This was the nicest place we've ever stayed at on the beach. Typically, I buy cleaning supplies and surface wipes; and the first thing I do is clean the place before our shoes even come off (if they do at all). Not here! The unit was clean and comfortable. The complex was a terrific place for our young family. We would definitely come back for more beach trips. And the owner/agent has been awesome to work with. Thanks for helping us through this process."

  • Perfect Get-A-Way to Have Quality Family Time

    "It was the perfect get-a-way for my grandmother & her sister to spend some quiet, quality time together. The weather was a little too chilly for them to be outside on the beach, but they had great fun watching the surfers! The elevator was much appreciated as they have difficulty using stairs. Definitely plan on going back, or trying another property owned by our hosts."

  • Great location!

    "We were here for spring break and had a wonderful time. The layout of the house is wonderful for two families as we had one family on one side in two bedrooms and another family on the other side in the other two bedrooms (and there are even more beds in the house!) The kids really enjoyed the pool and hot tub as well as the game room. I would only suggest a DVD player be put in the game room so kids can watch movies there. The living room furniture is a little uncomfortable but the surround sound was nice and the open floor plan is a great way for everyone to spend time together. We loved being able to walk to the market and the beach access couldn't have been closer! We had a terrific week and are looking forward to heading back. "

Virginia Beach Travel Tips

Located on the coast where the Chesapeake meets the Atlantic, Virginia Beach has long been a vacation destination with something for everyone. Come here for a mixture of East Coast class and lovely relaxing beaches.

Beaches

It’s certainly not surprising that Virginia Beach has miles of sandy paradise. But it might surprise you that it has different types of beaches. If you want to be where all the action is, head to “the strip,” the resort beach area with cafes, restaurants, street performers, live music and a boardwalk.

A great spot to watch surfers is Croatan Beach, which is in a ritzy neighborhood just south of the strip. It’s also pretty fun to see the million dollar homes that line the beach. If you want a quieter, more relaxing day in the sand, head 20 minutes south to the less-populated but incredibly lovely Sandbridge Beach, which has swaying seagrass and cozy vacation homes.

Checking out Sandbridge Beach warrants a trip to the massive False Cape State Park - a six-mile strip with fun to be had both Atlantic and bayside. Take a lovely stroll on one of the five trails that make up 15.3 miles, including the relaxed interpretive Barbour Hill trail. Be on the lookout for wildlife as this state park is part of the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. You can take a canoe or boat ride out in the bay or just enjoy the wild beaches and peaceful surroundings of nature.

Chesapeake Bay

If you want a completely different beach experience, head away from the Atlantic and northwest to the bayside to check out the Chesapeake Beach at First Landing State Park. Aside from relaxing on this beach just off Shore Drive, there are nine excellent biking, jogging and walking trails that cover a collective 19 miles. Don’t miss the Bald Cypress Trail, a 1.5-mile loop a slightly hilly walk with several boardwalks and observation platforms that takes you through both wetlands filled with cypress swamps and sand dunes. Or check out the Osprey Trail, which takes you on a scenic 1.2-mile stroll or ride near Broad Bay tidal beach.

At the nearby military base, check out the famous Cape Henry lighthouse, which was originally built in 1792. In 1870, a new lighthouse was built less than 400 feet away from the old one and is still in use today by ships at sea.

Historic Homes

Virginia Beach is home to several historic houses. The Lynnhaven House, built around 1725, is a hardy stone structure today furnished as a museum to show visitors what life was like in the area in the early 18th century. The Adam Thoroughgood House, built in 1719, is probably one of the oldest remaining homes in the area. It was built by Adam Thoroughgood, one of the fist Virginia colonists, and visitors today can take a tour and learn about his life.

Festivals and Events

Virginia Beach is home to some excellent yearly events. At the quirky, one-day Mid-Atlantic Hermit Crab Challenge, hosted on the beach at 30th Street, participants can enter their hermit crabs into the Crustacean 500 race and the Miss Curvaceous Crustacean Beauty Pageant. Hermits crabs often come decorated in a fancy shell and win trophies for biggest, shyest and most traveled crabs.

The Neptune Festival is an annual beachside event during the entire month of September. It’s host to the whimsical North American Sandsculpting Championship, Neptune’s 5k Run, the Atlantic Regatta and a surfing event. There’s also a wine festival and plenty of fabulous music and food. It’s located - where else? - in Neptune Park under the watchful gaze of a 34-foot bronze statue of Neptune, King of the Sea.

There’s plenty more to do in Virginia Beach, so check it out!
