About the property

Oceanfront 4 BR/2.5 BA/New Kitchen - Sleeps 10

This classic two-story beach cottage, built in 1946, comfortably sleeps 10 people in four bedrooms. A first floor Queen with en suite bath (shower only), a second floor King, a Bunk Room sleeping 4, and and a Twin room sleeping 2. There is one bathroom (with tub) on the second floor and an additional half-bath on the first floor. The kitchen has been completely renovated in winter 2017/18.

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 nearby. The fully-equipped kitchen has been renovated and has all new appliances, flooring, cabinets, etc. 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 and lots of books for your beach time reading. 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.

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 nifty Weber charcoal grill for use in the yard.

Since 1946, 'Hazel's Hideaway' has been a special place for its two families of owners. While the house retains its charming beach cottage style, you will find it very comfortable, well-equipped, and perfectly located for your ideal beach vacation!

About Kathy Hornsby

My husband's family spent summers in their beach house next door. 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 Northeast 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. It's safe and friendly. 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 Roads. Our home has lots of spots for gathering for eating or playing a board game 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. Our lovely fenced and turfed yard is perfect for croquet. And just a few steps away, take a dip in the ocean or a walk on the beach.

"hazel's Hideaway -- the perfect home

  • 5 of 5

"Hazel's Hideaway" proved to be the most wonderful house. It was more home that rental. Spacious, finely decorated and every possible thing you could want (TV's, music, games, fantastic kitchen, laundry and beach/water equipment and more). So convenient to beach and the yard was perfect for corn hole and croquet. The owner was very responsive to any needs or questions. We had a great time shortened slightly by hurricane/tropical storm. Wish we could have stayed longer and hope to return to this house again.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Donna. I am glad you enjoyed "Hazel's Hideaway", at least till Hurricane Florence came around and your vacation was cut short. Please come back and enjoy a full week! Kathy

Wonderful Experience at Hazels Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we drove up to the house we were delighted! The beautiful fenced in back yard was welcoming. The security access to the house was easily manageable.

The home itself was quite large, easily accommodating our six adults and four children. It was a warm and comfortable setting with relaxing decor, comfortable beds and an awesome kitchen. Its location to the beach couldn't have been more convenient.

Our host Kathy was quick to respond to any inquiries we had from our initial reservation to our departure. A wonderful experience on the north shore of Virginia Beach!

Everything we had hoped for and more

  • 5 of 5

Hazel's Hideaway was simply perfect. From the house and furnishings to the location of the property, it was simply ideal for our vacation. If you've never stayed North End, there's no better place in the greater VB area and if offers all you could want in a vacation. To top it all off, Kathy is simply fantastic. Highly recommended.

The residential North End of Virginia Beach affords a neighborhood location, but only minutes from the classic boardwalk, the perfect place for an evening stroll and ice cream!
