About the property

Oceanfront 4 BR/2.5 BA - Sleeps 10

This classic two-story beach home, built in 1946 and recently renovated, comfortably sleeps 10 people in four bedrooms: A first floor Queen with en suite bath, and second floor King, Bunk Room sleeping 4, and Twin room sleeping 2, and a large bathroom off the hall. There is a half-bath on the first floor.

A yard with privacy hedges separates our oceanfront home from the adjacent 70th Street beach access ramp (handicap accessible) leading across a small dune to the wide, sandy beach. The grass yard is fenced in and perfect for croquet or badminton!

Our colorful art-filled beach home has exposed beams and hardwood floors in the living and dining rooms. The living room includes a flat-screen TV and a desk with our guest notebook full of helpful information about the area. Wireless internet keeps you connected. The sun porch is glassed in but windows can be opened up for use as a screened porch, with ceiling fans and an antique round oak table for dining . Games and puzzles are stored in nearby. The colorful kitchen includes a tile table with cafe chairs for four and a walk-in pantry. Doors from the kitchen and sunroom lead to the patio featuring a picnic table with umbrella and additional seating and chaises. The downstairs queen bedroom has a small en suite bathroom with shower and is especially convenient for those who would like to avoid stairs. There is a half-bath off of the entrance hall.

Upstairs is a 'View Room', serving as second living area, with large windows to the north, east (ocean), and south. There is a King Bedroom with TV, a Bunk Room sleeping four, with an oversized nautical map of the area on the wall, and a Twin Bedroom accessible via the Bunk Room. The large upstairs deck off the Twin Room is a popular spot for sunning or evening cocktails, and includes a large umbrella and teak seating and a chaise. The bathroom upstairs has a tub/shower and a pocket door for privacy for the toilet. Additionally, there is a reading nook with a couch,

comfy pillows, and shelf with many books of general interest.

There is on-site parking for four cars. You'll enjoy using the outdoor shower with hot water and a changing area. Inside the garage is the washer and dryer, a handy extra refrigerator, and room for bikes if you bring them! Also included are numerous beach chairs, a beach cart, umbrellas, skim boards, boogie boards, two 9' foam surfboards, an ocean kayak, a croquet set, a badminton set, and a Weber charcoal grill for use in the yard. (There is a private finished area above the garage which may occasionally be used by the owners.)

Since 1946, 'Hazel's Hideaway' has been a special place for its two families of owners. You will find it charming, comfortable, and convenient for the perfect beach vacation!

About Kathy Hornsby

My husband's family spent summers in their beach house next door (VRBO # 318081). We bought this home when it became available and have enjoyed sharing it with our children and friends and family. It's comfortable and cozy and colorful, with paintings of mine and art chosen from around the world.

Kathy Hornsby purchased this house in 2000

Why Kathy Hornsby chose Virginia Beach

This area of Virginia Beach is a true neighborhood, with year-round residents as well as homes used primarily in the warmer months. We know our neighbors and enjoy watching their children grow up on the beach.

What makes this house unique

The 'View Room' is where we like to sit and watch the weather change over the ocean or look through the binoculars at the big ships coming through Hampton Road. Our home has lots of spots for gathering or plopping down to read a book: The living room, the sun room, the dining room, the upstairs 'View Room', the downstairs patio and the upstairs deck. And just a few steps from a dip in the ocean or a walk on the beach.

The Perfect Place to Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

What a treat for us to stay at Hazel's Hideaway this past winter!

We were in need of a long term winter rental while our local home was under renovations and we found the perfect spot!

Kathy, the owner, is a delight to work with, the house is beautifully appointed with everything you could imagine in a rental home and the location can't be beat!!! It was even beautiful in one of the rare Virginia Beach snow and ice storms!!!! I'm just sad we won't get to enjoy a lovely summer day on the decks.

This is truly the perfect home in which to spend a memorable family vacation!!!!

The Perfect Vacatin Home!

  • 5 of 5

I'm in love with this home! It truly is the Perfect home for a beach vacation. The home was absolutely spotless when we arrived and the decor and art work are amazing. The owner is very quick to respond to emails and very helpful. I was with a group of 60+ year olds and we definitely plan on returning. Lots of rooms to get away if you want solitude and great spots for games, etc. Our favorite room when not on the deck was the "View" room on the second floor. Everything (kitchen stuff, bedspreads, beach chairs, etc.) was top notch, no skimping, which I really appreciated. The location couldn't be better: right next to the walkway, on the quiet end of the beach, oceanfront and close to everything you need. It's definitely a winner!

Great place to relax and hang out with friends and family!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here last summer with my family and a few friends. We loved the fact that we can just walk to and from the beach whenever we want. We had an awesome time swimming, body surfing, or just hanging out playing board games and watching tv when the waves are rough!

A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The house has a very welcoming ambiance and a great location. It's like staying in the privacy of your own house with an added bonus of walking distance to the beach. Our family enjoyed our stay here last summer. My teenage daughter invited her three girlfriends to join us and they had a blast and loved having the Bunk room to themselves!

Can't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Hazel's Hideaway last year for Labor Day weekend and it was just perfect! The house is literally right next to the beach with a walkway that takes you over the dunes, which we loved because we could run back up to the house very easily if we needed to grab something. The garage has plenty of beach chairs and toys for you to take down to the beach, so don't worry about bringing those from home. What we really loved about staying here over a holiday weekend was that we avoided the crazy crowds. Its located a good distance down the beach from the big hotels and condos so we were actually able to enjoy our time on the beach and not spend it fighting for space in the sand. In the evenings we retreated back to the house and all relaxed up on the porch, or in the adorable sitting room upstairs, which both have lovely views of the ocean. All of the rooms in the house were nicely furnished and decorated, and the whole house was very clean and welcoming. The local grocery store is only a few short minutes away by car, as is the main boardwalk area with lots of shops and restaurants!

Overall it was a wonderful experience and we definitely plan to return.
