We had a great time! Thanks for accommodating us at the last minute. It is the perfect location, so central located. The weather was perfect. Maybe we will see you next year. What a sweet little cottage! Thanks again.

Happy with this quaint cottage

  • 4 of 5

My family of four had a great time at this little house by the beach. It's a very short walk to the beach, you're surrounded by restaurants (Mojito, attached to Subway, was amazing and a 3 minute walk) and a 7/11 for little snacks. It's also down the street from Starbucks and a small shopping plaza. There's a skylight in the bedroom, so it's a little bright but our children were worn out and slept fine. There are plenty of beach accessories (body boards, chairs, umbrellas, etc.) for you to use and it was great to be able wash all of our clothes before we left. Jon was there maintaining the yard once during out stay and asked if we needed anything, even restaurant suggestions- which we took him up on! Not lavish, but they provided everything that we needed and we were definitely happy with our stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks, for the nice review, we are glad you enjoyed Mojito's. We have some hidden gems(locals) near by( found in our welcome book in each unit). We have had a nice, but busy summer, thanks for visiting us. Jon & Tammy

Disappointed! not what we expected

  • 2 of 5

The best part about the cottage was it's location(i Blk away from the beach). However, that was about as good as it gets. My boyfriend and I travel frequently so our expectation of a comfortable stay is realistic. We found roaches in the cottage as well as the vents were dirty and there was an odor. We had to remove the vent in the bedroom and spray Lysol disinfectant around the area to get a fresh and clean smell circulating in the small cottage. Additionally, in the bedroom there was a Skylight which the sun blazed through very early in the mornings, making it difficult for us to sleep in beyond the crack of dawn. We were very disappointed with the cottage. We even had to wash the sofa cover because it reeked with an odor. We made the best of the cottage and still had a great time enjoying Virginia Beach and it's surroundings. We definitely plan on returning but not to this property. Charles and Rose

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response, Tammy and I do our best to accommodate our guests and will be correcting any of these problems if they exist. As of writing this response we have never heard from guests that any problems existed, even though we greeted each other during the week. Our guest arrived on Saturday late, to accommodate the late arrival we leave the keys in the mailbox. Our guests inform me that no keys were available, but would not answer my follow on questions. They called my housekeeper instead to come out and give them the keys to our larger unit(was not rented for that day). We do our best to accommodate our guests and she drove the 30 miles to give them keys to the A unit. The next day I asked the guest to check his agreement, thus confirming they were in the wrong unit. I gave the keys to the cottage and they moved. I received no apology for the trouble they caused, we were fortunate that the other unit was empty. They did not clean the unit before leaving and they had used additional towels. I felt that they were responsible for cleaning, cost of my housekeeper, and difference in price of the two units. I sent the bill, I have not received payment or response, except for this review. We have many reviews for the cottage and plan to make sure we have corrected any problems that exist quickly. Thank you. Jon and Tammy

What a Welcome

  • 4 of 5

I only have good words to say about our stay in Jon and Tammi's 'Romantic Cottage'. Despite being delayed due to hurricane Irene , Jon made us feel very welcome and went out of his way to compensate us for missing 3 days of our holiday in Virginia Beach. The location was perfect and everything that had been promised in the property details materialized with all amenities close by. We could not ask for more.

We would certainly recommend this property to a friend or relative and if we are in Virgina Beach again we would certainly wish to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Our couple staying with us were from Birmingham,England, over to spend two weeks with their daughter and son-in-law. The weather following Irene was great for them, even to much sun for the European's, I was glad they used the lotion. Thanks for the nice review.

Perfect Little Cottage by the Sand

  • 5 of 5

From the time I arrived at the cottage it was exactly as Jon had described. The place was extremely clean and cozy. The kitchen was very well equipped which made it so easy to prepare meals rather than eating out all the time. The fact that beach chairs were provided made the trips to the beach even more enjoyable. As for walking to the beach, it was a short two blocks. Jon called the first day I was there to ensure everything was fine which was wonderful of him. I would definitely recommend this adorable little cottage for anyone looking to get away from it all but still wanting to keep the feeling of "home". Thanks for the best vacation of my life!

Heaven in Virginia

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I spent a very nice week in June 2011 in this clean and cozy cottage. It was even closer to the beach than we tought, the beach being really wonderful, clean and wide. The place is really well located: you can go on the boardwalk, dining, shopping...everything is at walking distance. Thanks Jon for renting it to us even though we were young. You were very nice with us whenever we needed something. We will keep very good memories...I would go back without hesitation! I hope you'll have as nice weather as we did.

Nearest Airport
10 Miles
Car: not necessary

Virgina Beach now has the largest beach and newest board walk on the East Coast. Colonial Williamsburg and Bush Gardens are less than one hour driving. We are located in the central part of the resort area close to the boardwalk concerts, fireworks, Virginia Aquarium (Best on the East coast), rollerblading, deep sea fishing, Ocean Breeze Family Park and golf. We are the closest house to the boardwalk and the two best entertainment stages 31 & 24 st, but the only resident on the beachside of a dead end street. Where guests can have privacy, but be close to the group, beach, and places to go in the resort. Our house is located at 304 27th 23451. We are just a few minutes from the beach, just one block. We are located just off Pacific. We have decks, grills, landscaped yard, and all the stuff.
