Good house with a few quirks

  • 4 of 5

House was clean and very good for a group of young professionals. It did have a few items that needed fixing on arrival to the house that remained broken through our stay. The house did have some unusual placement for steps that you had to be cautious off as well. However, overall we all enjoyed our stay here At Makin’ Memories. 4.5 stars

Fun time at Makin' Memories!

  • 4 of 5

The 12 of us rented this vacation home for a family reunion for my mother-in-laws 80th birthday. We felt right at home in this house with plenty of space and lots of fun things to do, even without the pool since it is off season. The hot tub was great and the retro video game with tons of games in it was a big hit as was the ping pong / pool table. My son especially loved the dock and was fishing every chance he got. A few of us even tried the kayaks despite the cold (just make sure someone with experience uses the blue one...it's a bit unsteady for a beginner!). I was really impressed with how clean it was, no strong musty smell you usually encounter at beach houses. The furniture and beds were comfortable and there is plenty of seating at the 2 huge dining tables (only one comment that the queen bed in the downstairs ensuite was a bit too firm). The king bed in the 3rd floor bedroom was super comfortable. The floor plan is definitely unique and has many little steps all over. I was a little concerned about this for my mother in law, but the second floor master worked well for her since it had the deck and main living space as well, so she didn't have to go up and down the stairs too much. As for the walk to the beach, I can't comment since we didn't venture out there due to the cold. However, we were able to enjoy being outside at this house ...it was very peaceful and the view is really pretty. We even used the fire pit a couple of nights. I will say I wished we had brought some of our own pots and pans as suggested, but we were able to make do. Overall we had a great time and definitely made memories!

The best beach/vacation house EVERY!!!

  • 5 of 5

"Makin Memories" beach house has it all!!! It's a very spacious home with room to entertain or just find a quiet room to read a book. With the size of this house it's not hard to find your "alone time" no matter the amount of people staying. The kids loved it because they could play man hunt for hours and never hide in the same spot twice. The rooms are furnished with everything you look for in a beach house. Great beachy themed names for every room and wonderfully chosen linens to match. The first floor gaming/hot tub/pool table/bar area has everything you need to entertain. It's right on the water with beautiful views of sunrises/sunsets. If the ocean is what you're after...it's not a long walk at all. It was kind cool when we stayed but a group of us all walked to beach to look for seashells...great time!! The house was very clean and ready the moment we arrived. The owner/rental manager was so nice and understanding. I can't say enough great things about how accommodating she was...top notch and professional all the way. She answered every question very quickly prior to my arrival. If you are looking for a big vacation beach house with room to breath and tons of space to entertain with multiple families....look no further!!! This is my NEW go to Sandbridge/Va. Beach rental home!!! Thank you, we had a blast and look forward to many more trips/stays down there. Keep up the great work...awesome job!!!

Great mini-reunion at Makin Memories

  • 4 of 5

Six graduates of the class of 1964 of SHHS and their spouses enjoyed a long weekend mini-reunion at Makin Memories on Back Bay Canal. In many ways this visit/rental could have received 5-stars; however, we were the last rental group before some renovations. Had we been the first group after the renovations (new carpeting etc), that rating would have been a 5. The Kitchen was well stocked, the variety of recreational activities (pool table, hot tub {the hot tub is flushed after each rental group!}, boat launch, etc.) was impressive. The master bathroom on the top floor is massive with a two person shower and a two person soaking tub!

The property manager was available and responsive, a mal-functioning tv was addressed immediately. Other questions were answered with a single phone call.

Clearly Memories were made during our weekend at Makin Memories. I am confident that following the scheduled renovations this 4+ will become a solid 5!

Projects for Fall 2017 are new carpeting, fresh coastal themed interior paint, new "water toys (kayaks, etc) and a fire pit. We would love to host next years' reunion...sounds like it was a lot of fun!

A beautiful getaway for Makin' Memories!

  • 5 of 5

This is my first time using HomeAway, and the wonderful time at Tara's home has me sold! Tara was so welcoming and accommodating with her hospitality and communication. We were a band of 23 young adults on a church retreat in late September, and we felt like we truly experienced home away from home in Tara's lovely residence. From the kitchen to the porch decks and living areas, everything contributed to a beach experience that we will not be forgetting. Thank you Tara for opening up your beautiful place and letting us make some memories!

Sincerely,

Stephen

I would definitely recommend this property and we hope to come back again in the near future.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property with "only" 9 people (2 families). I say "only" since there is room for so many more. The home is very comfortable and accommodating. Our 5 kids (from age 12 to college) loved hanging out in the game room, hot tub and pool. There are many tv's - most of which we didn't use all week since we were enjoying other activities including some listed above. My kids are often in front of the tv when at home, so the change of routine for this week is a testament to how much this home can be enjoyed. The adults also enjoyed wine and cheese and hanging out on the decks overlooking the bay, not to mention the occasional hot tub and pool. Bring your camera for beautiful sunset pictures along the bay. The very nice beach is a 10 minute walk. We brought a golf cart and brought our chairs, cooler, and beach games up by cart every day. Or you can drop off all gear and beach goers by car. No parking at beach so at least one person must walk back and forth. That was not a problem since the walk is past nice homes and scenery and not long. If you don't enjoy a 10 -15 minute walk, bring a bicycle with you for the back and forth. Bike racks are at the beach.

One previous reviewer complained about the beds - however all 9 of us slept comfortably every night of our 1 week stay. So we were not agreeable with that prior review. The house has an unusual layout (ex. fireplace in 3rd floor massive master bathroom) which grows on you throughout your stay.

We had 2 runners including myself and a teenager, and found the roads around the house and along ocean to be quiet, easy roads to run each morning.

We bought fresh seafood from local markets and had great seafood &/ or steak and wine dinners several nights, which we enjoyed very much. We took advantage of a couple of rainy days by visiting sites in Virginia Beach (which is 15-30 minutes away depending on where you go) and Norfolk (40 minutes). Enjoyed that as well (including tour of the very historic USS Wisconsin docked in Norfolk).

Finally, the owner (Tara) was excellent to deal with and very easygoing. On request, she made several good recommendations for restaurants. I would add to her restaurant list the restaurant Blue Pete's - less than 15 minutes away right on the back bay. Also good seafood, steaks, salads.

All in all, we very much enjoyed our stay and we'll be back to this home again!
