Recent Virginia Beach reviews

  • Family vacation

    "We loved our vacation. The house was as beautiful as the pictures. When we arrived the owner called to make sure everything was ok and told us to call with any questions. A very nice touch. There were 21 of us on this vacation and the house had no problem accommodating the group. We ate at home most nights and loved that we could all sit together. The only reason we would stay at another location is because we had such a great experience we now have more family members who want to join in next year. "

  • Fabulous Stay in Virginia Beach

    "We recently spent a week in this beautiful home. Our party consisted of 4 adults and 4 teenagers (ages 14 - 17). I can't think of anything negative to say about our experience! The house was even more beautiful then the pictures show. It was clean and well stocked with anything we could need. It was big enough that everyone could have their own space, but still laid out so that we could all gather together (for meals, game nights, World Cup games, etc.). Tami was quick to respond when we had questions about where to find things in the house. The walk to the neighborhood beach was short and made very easy with the beach cart and chairs that were provided. The beach wasn't very crowded, the sand was great, the waves were fun. The pool was beautiful and refreshing after a busy day at the beach. :) Just a couple of notes: Tami and Steve left great tips and information about the local area, but we would definitely recommend going to the markets south of the house (take a left out of the neighborhood and head toward the Aquarium). Our first day there we made the mistake of going back thru the main VA Beach strip and it took us about 35 minutes to go 2 miles! Also, the kids were in the pool about 9:45 on Saturday evening (my husband and I were on the upstairs deck keeping an eye on them) and, while we didn't think they were being unreasonably loud - and we were planning to have them in and quiet by 10 pm, we apparently bothered the neighbor behind us because he did yell out. As the house is in a residential neighborhood, we were more mindful of that for the rest of our stay. We were hoping to catch the July 4th fireworks from the hot tub on the roof, but Tropical Storm Arthur put a stop to those plans. Fortunately, he didn't ruin anything else for our stay. I would highly recommend this house to anyone!"

  • Beach Quarters, 5th & Atlantic, Virginia Beach, VA

    "We stayed at the Beach Quarters in a 2 BR 2 BA condo for a week. The condo is very old and in need of some updating and maintenance but it was clean. The location is fantastic ... right on the boardwalk/beach. The staff at the property is very helpful, friendly, and accommodating. The biggest disappointment was the full kitchen which was only a 2 burner stove/microwave convection combo/and tiny dishwasher. The laundry facilities are also minimal and located on only a couple floors of the building. The location and staff do outweigh the negatives for this property!"

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.
