  • Right on the Beach with a Pool!!!

    "Perfect for our family of four. Right on the beach!! All the amenities needed. Owner was very accommodating, and really went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable. We will definitely look to go back again. The kids loved running down to the beach or pool because it is steps away from both. Thanks for allowing us to share your little piece of paradise!"

  • Absolutely the best place to stay!!

    "We loved, loved, loved our stay at this condo! It was EXTREMELY clean, much prettier in life (pictures don't do it justice)! My family and I have been coming to VA Beach for the past 13 years and we always stayed at the hotels on the Boardwalk, this was our first time renting a home. And we are so happy that we did, I will never go back to a hotel again. First of all, the property is very very well maintained, it was cleaner than any other place I have stayed at before. Secondly, the kitchen was well stocked, as I prepared all of our meals, this was very convenient. The rest of the home was also very comfortable, plenty of space for adults and kiddos ( we had 2 young kids and 4 adults in our party). The location was also ideal, a few minutes from the beach, no major roads to cross. The North end was a welcome retreat, much quieter than the Boardwalk area. We will definitely be back! And Olga was awesome, prompt to respond and very helpful! Thank you Olga for a great vacation!"

  • Our Beach Vacation

    "We stayed at this property the week of July 9-15, 2012, and we were very satisfied. I loved the one level rambler style, no steps to climb. The internet does not do justice for this house. The house is very nice, inside and out. The bedrooms were a nice size and the beds were so comfortable. The living room was a nice size with a sectional queen pull out. This is were the teenages camped out, to sleep and play their games on the BIG screen TV. The house has up to date applicances and TVs. Very nice ceiling fans in every room. The kitchen was great, with the little family room off the kitchen. The kids loved playing in the backyard. And the walk to the beach was not as long as I thought it would be. I love renting from this agency, they are always so professional, pleasant, and very accommodating. Their rental properties are always neat and clean. I will continue to use this agency for all my beach rentals. Until next summer, I hope everyone who stays at this house feel they way my family and I do...... VERY PLEASED!!!!"

  • Absalom Drive

    "This home is absolutely awesome! My daughter-in-law found this home for rent on the internet and we emailed Steve as soon as we saw it in November 2012. This house has a homey appeal yet has all the amenities you could ask for. We loved having the access to the pool just out the back door. That was my absolute favorite! We wanted to go to a beach for vacation but we did not want to stay in "tourist" area and prefer "residential". THIS WAS IT! The house is only 15-20 minutes away from everything and there are also some very nice "local" restaurants and shops. We ate at the Hot Tuna Grill the first nite we arrived and it was excellent. Our son loved riding one of the bicycles all over the island - he is quite the explorer. The home was very clean and way bigger than we thought. Steve (the owner) and Shirley (his left hand) went above and beyond to ensure we did not experience any problems and we were having a great vacation. Steve called me on our way down to alert us to the fact there was an accident on Rt. 64 and a 2-1/2 hour delay and re-routed us another way to avoid it - that was awesome. I have never had service like that. Shirley (Steve, she's a GEM!) came over a couple of times to service the pool, put out garbage for collection and just make sure everything was ok. We did experience a problem with the air conditioning and called Steve and it was fixed within hours. He is not kidding when he says he wants you to have the "Best Vacation" and not worry about anything! I would definitely recommend this home for anyone to rent. There were 5 of us and our youngest did his exploring, watching some of the endless DVD's that are there, swimming in the pool and eating endless "crablegs". The newlyweds had their privacy - ventured out on their own some. Went to the movies, the Boardwalk, shopping and out to lunch. Den & I had some "alone" time also which was very nice. It's a great place to stay! There was only one disappointment for us - it went too quickly! You were absolutely right Steve - one week is not enough! We already have plans for vacation in 2014 but want to come back in 2015. This time we will book for 2 weeks. Thanks to you and Shirley for helping to make this a great, memorable vacation! Linda, Den, Ryne, Jared and Sarah Springdale, PA "

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.

Things to Do in Virginia Beach

- Virginia Aquarium: If you're looking for a fun activity everyone can enjoy, especially marine life lovers, plan a visit to the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center. It's located just south of the Rudee Inlet and features more than 800,000 gallons of fresh and saltwater displays. The two main exhibits here are the Bay and Ocean Pavilion and the March Pavilion, which are connected by an outdoor nature trail. More than 12,000 animals from 700 different species are represented here, so there's a lot to see, like crabs, sea stars, fish, birds and more!

- Adam Thoroughgood House: Step back in time with one of the oldest surviving Colonial homes in Virginia. The Adam Thoroughgood House is a brick structure that was built in 1720. It underwent restorations in the 1920s and 1950s and is now a museum. Take a tour of this historic home to learn more about the family that lived here as well as how the area has grown and developed since the home was built.

- Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art: Whether you're an art aficionado or someone who appreciates great beauty, you'll enjoy a visit to the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art. The MOCA features changing exhibits that display works in painting, sculpture, photography, glass, video and other visual medias from regional, national and international artists. Along with the galleries, the museum also provides studio art classes, outdoor art shows and an educational outreach program. As you wander through the space, you can marvel at the variety of works and appreciate the craftsmanship of the artists.

- First Landing State Park: If you're looking to spend some time with nature, head to First Landing State Park, which features more than 19 miles of trails for exhilarating hikes and bike rides. There are also places to cast a fishing line and take a refreshing swim. First Landing is Virginia's most popular state park and an excellent place to enjoy a picnic lunch surrounded by gorgeous natural scenery.

- Sandbridge Beach: This secluded area offers you 5 miles of stunning sand and awesome dunes. You can easily slow down here, relax and enjoy the tranquil sounds of the water and the cool breeze across your face. For those looking for a little more adventure, you can take to the waters or the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and False Cape State Park for kayaking and fishing.

Dining in Virginia Beach

- Black Angus Restaurant: If you're a steak lover, a meal at Black Angus is a must. It's one of Virginia Beach's oldest restaurants - it was founded in 1953 - and it is located on the oceanfront. Options like New York Strip, prime rib and filet mignon are sure to have your mouth watering. If you prefer a different entree, there's also seafood and salads.

- Catch 31: When you're at the beach, dining on fresh seafood is a must. Catch 31 has an open-air kitchen and hardwood grill, and it serves more than 15 varieties of fish like tuna, striper and lobster. The raw bar features oysters, crab, shrimp, mussels and more. Sip a signature cocktail or a glass of wine from the excellent list on the outdoor terrace as you watch the waves.

- One Fish Two Fish: This restaurant opened in 2000 and has become a local favorite, as it is centered around its exhibition kitchen where you can watch the chefs at work. Choose from a an array of fresh seafood like Ahi, shrimp, crab, flounder and more for dinner and pair your dish with a variety of wines that have been recognized with Wine Spectator's "Award of Excellence." As you dine you can marvel at panoramic views of the water.

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.

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.
