About Owner/Property Manager

After growing up across the street from this cottage, My wife and I bought it as a rental. We have rented it for the last 10 years and just recently decided to share this experience with shorter term renters. My family still lives across the street and it is a nice treat for us to visit renters and our family at the same time.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Norfolk

After growing up across the street from this cottage, My wife and I bought it as a rental. We have rented it for the last 10 years and just recently decided to share this experience with shorter term renters. My family still lives across the street and it is a nice treat for us to visit renters and our family at the same time.

What makes this cottage unique

An original beach cottage, built in the 1920's. This was a staple design for ocean view, which attracted many vacationers in the early to mid 1900's. We are excited to rekindle those memories for other vacationers as they enjoy their stay in this beach cottage.

Our Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was so cute and comfortable! We enjoyed meals and games with our loved ones in the cottage every evening and loved walking across the street to the beautiful, clean, and lightly populated beach! Everything we needed inside the cottage was provided and the owners made sure there were beach chairs for our use, as well! We would recommend this property to everyone!

Great time

  • 5 of 5

We actually arrived at the property very late that night and a little off put by the area at first. During the day you can see it is a very up and coming neighborhood with loads of amenities. The beach is a short walk across the street and was quiet, not too busy and all around a retreat. The location is a great central area essentially 20 minutes from everything. The neighbor (whose cats my son made friends with) is a really nice guy with great recommendations on places to eat or things to do close by. We spent a good amount of time in Virginia Beach but Captain Groovy's in Norfolk became one of our favorite spots for the delicious seafood. The house was very beach themed with lots of amenities - towels, dishes, etc. My only suggestion would be to fix the pavement out back as it was especially trecherous at night and to add some night stands and frames into the bedrooms to make it more homey and accessible. Otherwise definitely one of the best beach house finds we have come across. The owners were extremely responsive and great to work with. We look forward to visiting again next summer and referring friends looking to stay in the area.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little cottage for our vacation! Worked very nicely for four adults and small child. It was nice having the two large beds downstairs as access to the upstairs is tricky and wouldn't work with small children, older, or handicapped people due to a tight a spiral staircase.

Owners were very accessible before AND during the trip. They were helpful with restaurant recommendations (Captain Groovy's was AWESOME), directions, and questions regarding the house.

Beach access was awesome. You do have to cross a busy street, but that did not hinder us from going back and forth from house to beach multiple times a day! It often seemed like we had the beach to ourselves! VERY little crowds. Bay water was FANTASTIC. Very calm, barely had to jump over any waves and could just float. We saw dolphins on FOUR different occasions!

VA Beach is close, great and easy drive from Ocean View to Shore Drive. Easy to go spend the day to enjoy boardwalk attractions. The Flame of Hope POW/MIA observation park was very cool, got to see Fighter Jets preparing to land and just taking off.

Although the house could use some updates, the things needed are typical of rentals. The house was VERY clean and had unexpected supplies for us, hand/dish soap, trash bags, paper towels and toilet paper. We were very pleased with the property and the price.

Thanks for a great vacation!

We have spent our summer vacation in this cottage second year in a row, and just like last year we had a blast! The house has all the necessities, is cosy and conveniently located. Just a short walk to the ocean and a close-by 7-11 store.

Good location..but...

  • 3 of 5

The owners were wonderful to deal with and work with. There were 3 of us girls out for a week of fun and road tripping it was a great week.

Being in the travel industry I am always looking for a good deal and this is just that. The neighborhood is not the best but it is so very convenient to every direction you want to go..

There are a few things I would like to point out. It was really awesome having a washer and dryer in the home..

The house sits facing a very busy street, backing out of the driveway is very difficult, backing into the driveway is a bit harder as it is pretty narrow. The driveway needs some work & it is shared with the house next door, there is one driveway and splits into a V with a fence that separates the two back yards so parking 3 cars there or a boat it really is not feasible as there is a huge lack of turn around space. The driveway needs to be graveled between the actual concrete driving slabs. The depth between the actual concrete slabs for the tires to stay on is very deep and if you have a car that sits lower to the ground it will scrap the underbelly of the car when driving off of those slabs as I found out the hard way. I do feel that gravel to level it up would totally help this situation and a cheap fix. I do not feel the description of the parking on the website is accurate at all.

Concrete patio slab has a huge chunk broken off and dangerous.

Inside the home there were several things that needed some quick cheap fixes. The kitchen is very old not updated at all The counters are very old. The cabinets are very old and many of them did not stay shut. The kitchen floor was very old.The hood over the stove was very dirty and greasy should be either replaced or professionally cleaned.

Huge unfinished patch in ceiling.

The bathroom is very, very small and there is NO electric outlets in the there. The shower is a mess,the shower surround is broken where the little soap dish lays (the built in part), the caulking is gross and very, very sloppy, the area where the turn on /off knobs are needs to be fixed up because all the paint is all chipping off. The shower head is non- adjustable causing water to escape. The carpet upstairs was gross, my friend had to clean the fans to use them they were gross too. The spiral staircase should be removed because it is dangerous, hard to pack up luggage. .

Again the owners were great to work with.

Owner's Response: Lesia and I appreciate your feedback and your review. We would like to let you know we have we have upgrades scheduled to address many of things listed, so that when you return, your experience will be different. We do our best to reflect on the website that this is one of the "original" beach cottages which is over 50 years old and not one of the new multi-million dollar homes across the street that rent for (double). We continue to strive to make everyone happy who gets to share our beach cottage experience with our family, and we are sorry to hear it did not meet your expectations. We hope to see you and your friends back soon. Owen and Lesia
