Recent Virginia Beach reviews

  • This beach house met all our needs.

    "Not much to complain about. If I had to come up with something it would be that there wasn't a cookie/bake sheet in the kitchen, but we were able to make do with what was there pretty easily. It is an easy walk to the beach and there was more than enough to keep us busy for a week. Jon was an easy phone call away if we had any issues, but he was good about respecting our privacy too. I would definately stay here agian if I were to return to Virginia Beach. "

  • The Perect Beach House

    "The Pinch Me House was perfect for those who love easy access to the beach. The pool in the backyard was also a good place to cool off and let the kids play and swim. The owners were right on top of any issues we had, and replaced a refrigerator the same day we reported the problem. Our family of 21, 12 adults and 9 children thoroughly enjoyed the home and the accomodations were more than adequate."

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.

While you're spending time at the different beaches you might catch a glimpse of dolphins playing in the water and surfers trying to catch the perfect wave on the southern end of the Rudee Inlet and alongside the 14th Street pier. If you're feeling adventurous, grab a surfboard and hang ten.

Virginia Beach enjoys an excellent subtropical climate. You can expect very mild winters with only light snowfall and hot, humid summers that melt into warm evenings spent strolling along the boardwalk or through town. No matter what season you visit, there are a lot of indoor and outdoor activities with a variety of state parks, historic sites and local attractions to visit.

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.
