  • Tri-state Always As Sisters

    "Our weeklong Virginia Beach house vacation reservation was met with a warm and genuine welcome team of one - a spunky and lovely woman - Mitzi. Mitzi ushered us into the house with individual hugs and showed us around. The home was as beautiful as depicted on-line. As grown and sexy women (40+) from the tri-state area (NY, NJ and CT), we required the best and we weren’t disappointed. We felt really good about our choice the minute we drove up to the gated driveway to the beautiful garden – what a safe haven she has created! Clearly the best house on the block, we were just three short blocks from a very good section of the beach, and we walked to the beach often. As mentioned online, the house is equipped with everything you can imagine with few exceptions, but please note – there’s plenty of spices. The backyard and deck was wonderful and has plenty of seating. There’s a lot to do in Virginia Beach and Mitzi will recommend all types of restaurants, so don’ t be shy – ask. The two restaurants she recommended to us – Lynnhaven Fish House and Icehouse - were excellent choices! Aside from the cosmetically appealing beauty of the home, one of the best features was Mitzi herself. Lovely hostess with a North Carolina twang that will have you tuned in. Mitzi’s impressive before and after pictures, her lively personality and the “birth of the beach house” was enlightening and fun. The fact that she spent a few minutes with us as we departed and wanted to know a little something about each of us (there were 7 of us) was hospitality at its best. It was a great ending to a special girl’s week. Thanks Mitzi for sharing your home with us!"

  • Perfect for Wheelchair users

    "Our family of 5 with 6 friends had a wonderful stay in this home, and the accessability made all the difference. Our oldest, 23, has used a manual wheelchair for the past 10 years. And as you may have guessed, wheelchairs and beaches do not mix to well. But this home and location made all the difference. The elevator makes this big house accomidating for EVERYONE!! Little things like a concrete driveway, no frontdoor threshold step and roll-in shower makes this a new family fav. We called the local beach chair rental store and they delivered and picked up a BEACH WHEELCHAIR that allowed for all of us to grab a book and enjoy the beach. Never again will we stay anywhere else when coming to the beach!"

  • Teacher Group

    "We had a ball at this house. The location is perfect. It is on a quiet street a few steps from the ocean, near shops and eateries. We teachers were able to easily visit as a whole group in the living room area. We will definitely return!!!"

Williamsburg Travel Tips

Renting the Ideal Williamsburg Vacation Rentals

Colonial Williamsburg is a charmingly reconstructed town, looking just as it did when it was the capital of Virginia in the 1770s. However, it is not just the historic buildings which have been recreated but also the whole lifestyle, with actors providing the roles of shopkeepers, villagers and even George Washington himself. The town has a host of shops, taverns, theaters and restaurants, all in keeping with the historic atmosphere.

Williamsburg is located on the Colonial Parkway which links it with Jamestown and Yorktown, on a peninsula between the James and York Rivers which flow into Chesapeake Bay. The area is ideal for walking, cycling along the flat cycleways, shopping and taking guided tours of each charming historic district.

Renting a condo in Williamsburg puts you right in the heart of this historic area. With spacious well-equipped facilties, it is often the most economical way to stay in the area, especially if you are sharing the accommodation with extended family or friends. Use a vacation rental as a base for exploring this lovely area, returning home after dark to a comfortable home-away-from-home with all the necessary amenities.

Williamsburg Vacation Houses Provide a Host of Things to Do

Colonial Williamsburg offers something for every age and brings historic events vividly to life before your eyes. Head for the Visitor Center and pick up a map and list of activities and events which change daily. Strolling along the streets of the Historic District is free but tickets are required to enter some of the key historic buildings and museums. Buy handmade candles or old maps in the quaint shops with “Colonial Currency” or discuss politics with local characters. Take a carriage ride around the town or tour the beautiful Governor’s Palace, Capitol building and the Old Courthouse. See cabinet-makers, silversmiths, blacksmiths and wig-makers all demonstrating their trades.

Beyond the historic sites, the area is ideal for cycling and walking along the flat rural lanes. There is also some excellent shopping and dining in the area.

Places to Visit Around Williamsburg

The waterfront town of Smithfield is nearby with its brick-built 17th-century St. Luke’s Church, the oldest existing church of English foundation in the U.S. Further afield, classy Richmond offers an interesting day out, just an hour down the road. The area also has several plantation homes on the banks of the James River which are open to the public and can be toured.

Other historic sights just a short drive from Williamsburg are Bacon’s Castle, a 17th-century manor house, and Smith’s Fort, dating back to 1609. The Jamestown Settlement is an excellent replica of the waterfront community which originally established itself there.

Once you have had enough of the history of the area, a trip to Busch Gardens or Water Country USA theme park may be in order, with a host of 21st-century rides and family attractions. The nearby Virginia Beach offers plenty of activities for vacationers including miles of sandy beaches and excellent shopping; in that case you might want to consider Virginia Beach rentals for the future trips to the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean.
