Lori Vernosky purchased this house in 2005
The living room furniture is NOT AS PICTURED, instead there is outdoor patio furniture with PLASTIC CUSHIONS on the 1 couch & 4 chairs, VERY UNCOMFORTABLE! Inside home smells moldy. Appliances are not maintained. Toaster doesn't pop up & manual can opener won't even put a hole in a can. Went to use dryer & within minutes I smelled something burning. The dryer vent was disconnected, lint was all over the floor & wall. Sent text w/ pictures to owner who didn't response until after numerous calls & texts at all phone numbers available. When I did speak w/ the owner he asked "Why are you doing laundry you just arrived?". Owner got nasty & asked us to leave. We stayed because my mother-in-law is in Hospice Care. The vent was reconnected by the "maintenance man" but the lent wasn't cleaned up very well.The heater only works downstairs, no heat upstairs. Heater is about 50+ years old. The ceiling fan in living room had 2 inches of dust on blades. Showed to "maintenance man" who wiped them w/ his fingers, put the dirt in his pocket & left. The air condition intake filter & vent is totally clogged w/ dirt. There is no mop to clean floors, vacuum cleaner was filthy (I bought one of each to use), no pitcher for drinks, no outdoor shower for the front unit. I notified the owner of our departure on 5/27 & requested our security deposit back & was told it could take up to 2 weeks. Today 6/22, my deposit was returned only because I filed a claim w/ VISA & VISA got my deposit back. If you don't believe me, contact the City of Va Beach, Housing & Neighborhood Preservation Code Inspectors Office & ask if they have a report concerning this home. F.Y.I. the 1 bathroom is upstairs, none downstairs. I recommend the website be updated to show exactly what you are getting & remove the pictures that are no longer correct.
A friend and myself were looking for a last minute getaway for 4th of July weekend and found this place. The owners were extremely friendly and we had a wonderful time. The owners are pet friendly which worked out perfect for us since we did not want to place our furry family members in a dog kennel for the weekend. The house was very clean and exactly what we needed. PLUS, it was right across the street from the beach! Thanks for a great place for our holiday getaway!
I rented this place for Thanksgiving week and Christmas week. Upon my arrival on Monday the 24th of November, I found there was a musty, moldy smell that was very strong. I opened all the windows and let it air out for the day, but found the odor still lingered. I had a reaction to something in the house that irritated my throat and my sinuses. I left the place in the middle of the night to find accommodations elsewhere. Aside from the smell, here were the problems I encountered:
1) It wasn't very clean. Had to wash my hands after closing the windows - it left me with a sticky dirty feeling. Also the return air vent was covered in dust and dirt.
2) The ceiling fan in the kitchen had a light fixture attached that was coming away from the fan. It seemed it might be a safety issue.
3) The internet did not work. I could sign in, but I was unable to open any pages. I tried several and it just didn't move.
4) The "air fresheners" that were sitting about were very unattractive and unwelcoming.
5) The pillows were stained and yellowed. I did not use them.
It was a disappointing and frustrating experience.
We rented the home for part of February and all of March during the college baseball season. The home was well equipped with everything necessary for a comfortable stay. It was in a quiet area and very close to the beach. Any issues were quickly resolved by the owner, who was very friendly and helpful. We especially enjoyed the screened in porch, and the fenced yard was ideal for the pups. We hope to return same time next year if schedules allow. The photos accurately represent the property.
Great vacation rental with all the necessary items. The property was clean with fully equiped kitchen, propane grill, screen porch, chairs, coolers, umbrella, really everything you could need for the beach. Close to both the oceanfront activities and equally as close to the Shore Drive/Chesapeake beach area restaurants. Extremely close to the beach with easy access to the sand and sun!
Comfortable furnishings and bedding. Awesome value and great location!
Great location at the Northend of Va Beach
