About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Virginia Beach is an ideal spot for a family vacation - and our vacation home is in the perfect location in the popular and more private North End. Walk out of the front door right to the improved beach access walkway and directly to the sand!

Restaurants of almost every description are about a 15 minute drive with many offering delivery services. The Virginia Beach resort strip/boardwalk area also a few minutes away offers entertainment, food, bike rentals, jet ski rentals, parasailing, full night life, and much more.

Our home features 4 bedrooms and lots of living spaces - living room, eat in kitchen, spacious L shaped screened porch, and both a ground level backyard deck and a roof top deck with view of the ocean!

We welcome family and extended family vacation groups to inquire further. We're not the venue for high school or college graduation week celebrations, bachelor or bachelorette parties, etc. Our location is a family friendly neighborhood with mostly owner occupied properties.

About The Owner

Family Owned Vacation Home for many years.

The Owner purchased this house in 1968

Why The Owner chose Northeast Virginia Beach

It's located in the North End of Virginia Beach with wider beach areas and off street parking. It is much less crowded than the resort boardwalk area yet is just a short bike ride or car ride to the boardwalk (or trolley ride) with its entertainment and restaurant venues. A family friendly area - our family and friends have been coming to our beach house for 45+ years.

What makes this house unique

It's a very relaxing vacation home. Several outside areas - large L shaped front screened porch, rear ground level deck with a small fenced yard area, and a roof top deck with ocean view. All of the modern amenities make it enjoyable no matter the weather.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful stay in your house at 78th St.! It was the perfect size for our needs and in the perfect daughter loved the middle bedroom because of the quilts and the lamps on the wall, and I loved not having to drive to and park at the beach! Again, thanks for making our "vacation" in Va. Beach so comfortable.

Lovely Vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at 107A 78th Street in Virginia Beach,Virginia was awesome. The home was clean , spacious comfortably cool with air conditioning and equipped with washer ,dryer and the outdoor shower. The property manager and housekeeper were very accessible. The beach is close by [within walking distance]. The beach was very sandy, perfect to walk on and lots of scenery everyday with the dolphins playing in the water. Thank you for the opportunity. Easy access to the boardwalk , Aquarium and boat ride tours. Try Waterman's [@ 4th Street] to eat.

Classic, cozy beach cottage.

Unless one plans to spend every minute indoors, this is cottage has loads of appeal - screened porch with comfortable furniture, rooftop deck, boogie boards & chairs for the beach. Clean, well-maintained, terrific location.

Perfect home right by the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a 35th reunion of 8 sorority sisters. The home had EVERYTHING! Bed linens, towels, all kitchen supplies, washer/dryer and even beach chairs and a handy buggy! the home is very comfortable and had plenty of ceiling fans for cooler days and central air for the steamy ones. The owner and caretaker were both very communicative and responsive to questions. The wonderful back deck, roof deck and huge screened on porch area provided plenty of space for gathering and hanging out. The roof deck was a perfect place to enjoy a cocktail and watch the sunset. The accessibility to the beach was key as is the north Virginia Beach location...away from the noise and crowds. We will be renting this place again next time we are in the area!

Incredible Home

  • 5 of 5

House was wonderful. We had three generations with us, and it was a great place to call our home for the week. With four bedrooms, there was enough room for everyone. We used the front screened in porch for meals as well as in the evening. The walk to the beach is so very short. There were plenty of beach supplies (toys, chairs, etc.) for our family of 7. The location is great as well--the beach is not full of tourists as you are not in the heart of the city. We were able to drive into town as needed, as it is only a five minute drive. Also, the outdoor shower--knowing that my kids were not dragging in the sand each time they returned from the beach was great!

Great Beachhouse stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our young children and my mother at this house. The proximity to the beach is excellent. The North End of Virginia Beach is less busy and touristy. It makes for peaceful and pleasant vacation spot with close proximity to other amenities in the area.The sunporch is terrific. The outdoor shower was great after a long day at the beach. The house has all necessities for a great stay.
