About Lisa Freeman

We love the area, especially walking down to the fishing pier or on the beach collecting shells and sea glass. City of Norfolk is nice to visit, safe and not too large, USS Wisconson, a fabulous Botanical gardens and a zoo all packed into our city of 280,000. Don't forget Water Country USA in Williamsburg.

Lisa Freeman purchased this house in 2003

Why Lisa Freeman chose Norfolk

This house is like being out to sea on a ship. The water is so close. The location makes for wonderful breezes in the summer, (zero insects). The views will take your breath away. Close to 5 cities (all within 20 minutes)!

What makes this house unique

STILTED HOUSE FOR EXCEPTIONAL VIEWS. BALCONIES OVER WATER. NAVY BASES ARE CLOSE AS WELL AS MANY HISTORICAL SITES.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We truly enjoyed our family time. The house was wonderful and I myself did not see any clutter as mentioned in a review. Perfectly decorated and very clean and comfortable. Amazing sunsets!!!

Notes:
Many historical sites such as Yorktown Battle Field, Jamestown settlement, and Williamsburg, as well as Busch Gardens amusement park are only 25 minutes away via interstate 64. Many military bases in the area, my favorite is Fort Story where you can walk into a lighthouse built in 1700's. We have several beautiful beaches in the Tidewater area. Including Virginia Beach with a boardwalk area is a short drive.1 beach on site 50 steps away PLUS two blocks away is a very long, quite beach that is beautiful. Very convenient, no parking fees and great by East Coast standards. See video in photo section of this ad. There are two restaurants,one 3 min walk, another 10 minutes. Many nice shops are located in Norfolk, Williamsburg and Virginia Beach.

First time kayaking was great on the calm waters of the bay.

  • 3 of 5

While we enjoyed the house overall, it as clean and well equipped, the area was not what I expected. Also the wifi is really difficult to access as you really do need to be at the dining table because you are using the neighbors signal.. Also if it had been a really hot week, the air conditioning would not have been able to keep up. The owners live close by and stopped by a few too many times for our comfort.

Perfect location...near everything. Enjoyed the view from the decks and kids enjoyed fishing!

  • 4 of 5

Overall this is a lovely place and I will vacation there again. In fact, it was my 2nd stay there. The owners are very responsive. However, there are some things that don't work properly or are very difficult to operate...the gas logs/fireplace, the hallway bathroom shower, and the light on the lower deck was not working so we, especially the kids, couldn't sit and enjoy the waterfront view late into the night. The kids and I enjoyed the hammock during our first stay (5 years ago), but it was not there during my recent visit and I wanted to take pictures to compare from previous stay...memories. Maybe it was not put up because of the time of the year. Also, the grass had not been mowed when we arrived on Saturday and was not done until Tuesday (checkout was Wed). But again....I love the place and location. Would stay again.

Owner's Response: We want our quests to have wonderful memories. (April 1st) is why the hammock was not hung. To engage the shower, you pull down on the Delta Spicket (It is also labeled). Lamp post decorative light over deck switch was replaced, however no need to sit in the dark as there are two other lights to use beneath the home. The fireplaces has a knob, turn left for more flames, turn right for less flames. This is labeled as well. We do hope our guests would reach out to us with any questions, but especially just read the information book within the home. It has easy breezy instructions as well. Thanks again for returning to 10 Mile View!

Overall ok. GREAT view! Relatively clean. Too many rules. Hidden costs. Inconsistent information.

Some rooms & furnishings were nice. Other areas were very tacky & cluttered.
