About the property

Lovely home with a pool and only one block from the beach!

We want to share our beautiful beach home with you! Located in the residential Northend of Virginia Beach, you can enjoy a week at the beach without the crowds of the touristy hotel-filled oceanfront!

The beach is just across Atlantic Avenue and easy to get to. Pack up the Roleez cart with your goodies, walk about a block and cross over a dune with an easy-access walkway! At the top of the dune, stop for a second, close your eyes, smell the salty air, feel the warmth of the sun and hear the waves crashing to shore. Let the stress blow away with the warm ocean breeze! After a hard day at the beach, come home and relax even more. Sit around the pool! Play ping pong, billiards, cornhole, a board game. Read a book. Take a nap. Fix yourself a cocktail. Grill up some dinner. Take more deep breaths! You'll never be bored with relaxing things to do.

And if you do decide to take on the action-packed fun the boardwalk has to offer, it's a 5 minute car ride or a 15 minute leisurely bike ride to get there.

With its many restaurants, venues, amusements (galore), retail shops, etc., you'll find the nightlife (and day life) of Virginia Beach fun-filled and entertaining!

Then, you just make your way back to the peace and quiet of 215 70th Street!

About Maria Sullivan

My husband owned this property before we were married and in 2004 we tore down the old beach cottage and built our forever home. But as is often the case in life things change! In 2017, after raising our kids there, we decided to downsize and move across town. Our children, who are 10 and 12 were not thrilled, but it was a new adventure and we decided we just couldn't bring ourselves to sell our "forever" home. So we decided to join the VRBO family of homes.

Maria Sullivan purchased this house in 1990

Why Maria Sullivan chose Northeast Virginia Beach

Our close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and being a part of the prestigious "North End" provided us with a safe family neighborhood. The feeder road, which parallels Atlantic Avenue, provides a great place to walk or teach a little one to ride a bike. It connects the neighborhoods together and gives our community that family feeling.

What makes this house unique

This home has been our life for the last 12-13 years and my husband and have loved living here so much that we wanted to share it with more families. We actually made our decision to do so while sitting on the second floor deck listening to the waves crashing one evening while sipping a nice glass of wine. It was a tough decision, but we felt it was the right one. We hope that given all the custom features we have built into the house, your stay is a memorable one. Truly, if my husband thought about it during the construction, he installed it! We have shared a fabulous life in this home together, there are only good vibes in "Summer Breeze"!

Excellent house!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful! We really enjoyed the pool,the pool table, and ping pong! The shower with the sauna is amazing! We loved the master bedroom and bathroom! The master bedroom could use some window treatments as the sunlight shines in in the morning. We loved cooking in the fabulous kitchen. We want to stay there again!

Beautiful home that had lots of family activities.

Outdoor patio spaces were nice. We enjoyed the gourmet kitchen. And the proximity to the beach was great. Would have loved it if the pool was heated.

Owner's Response: Adam: Thank you very much for the kind review. We work very hard to make sure our home is warm and inviting. This is our first spring since we put our home on VRBO and we never imagined that someone would consider going in the pool in March! However, it's a great suggestion and we will look into the feasibility of installing one. If we do, we hope you will come back again next spring. Many thanks! Maria

Fabulous house, beautifully, sympathetically, smartly furnished. Great, helpful, friendly hosts.

  • 5 of 5

The property is maybe a 3 minute walk from a huge (and when we were there) deserted beach.

It is exactly as described, though it also has a wonderful, welcoming "feel", which is hard to depict. It's cleverly laid out to afford huge amounts of entertaining and lounging space, 2 outdoor areas, 2 indoor, a formal great dining room - and a large and well-appointed kitchen. Three decks, a decent-sized pool, a pool table, a bar area, a garage devoted to ping pong - what more could you ask for. The bedrooms are good size, the Master is huge and sports a monster bathroom with enormous shower (for 2... or more) and a hot tub bath. There's a ton of clean towels, sheets (ours seemed brand new) and two sets of washing machines and two driers (one for beach stuff). Oh, and an outdoor shower.

Negatives? None really. The wi-fi was a bit wonky for a day or two and the TV's require a 12 year old to operate (or an adult with an IQ higher than mine..). Truly superb house. heartily recommended.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

The home is lovely, the pool in the back looks just like it does in the picture. It was great to just sit and relax by the pool and then take a dip to cool down. My boys liked playing ping pong and pool (both tables were in very good condition). It was a short walk to the beach and you do have to cross Atlantic Ave but it was quite manageable. The floor warmer in the Master bathroom was a treat. The one problem we had was with the TV's. One wasn't connected and the one in the Master bedroom was so complicated we needed help to figure it out. There was no way anyone would figure out how to get the sound on without some assistance. We contacted Marty and he came out several times to try and fix the TV with no cable box, he was very responsive. I consider this a minor problem but it would enhance the stay if these electronics were upgraded.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words.... We appreciate your constructive input. We look forward to seeing you next year! During this past winter, we purchased two high end Logitech remotes and programmed them to work with the electronics in the home. Hopefully, this will solve the problem!

Our tranquil "North End" beach location combined with our recently painted and completely "beach theme" decorated Virginia Beach home, provides the ideal spot for a relaxing ocean vacation. Enjoy refreshing sea breezes from your private patio or one of our three balconies. Too hot on the beach? return to the house and enjoy the outdoor shower and jump in the pool. Still not happy? Chill in the recreation room and play a game of pool or ping pong in the garage. Use our driveway for corn hole if a little family competition is in order. Fun for the whole family!

Resort-like perks like free WiFi, basic cable, two refrigerators, and ice maker, oodles of DVDs for movie nights make going out entirely optional. When the mood strikes, the excitement of the Boardwalk is as close as a bike ride away and easy access to area attractions. (Bikes not provided)
