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 to eat or play 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. And just a few steps away, take a dip in the ocean or a walk on the beach.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Great for our extended family with lots of living spaces and a large dining table for game
Large kitchen with all amenities, great upper deck with water views immediately adjacent to path to beach, very quiet area yet close to boardwalk, shops and restaurants
Thank you so much, Patricia. I'm so happy you enjoyed our home. I'm renovating the kitchen this winter and making some other exterior improvements, so it will be even more comfortable for our guests. Please come back!
Great beach location
First visit to Virginia Beach. Perfect beach location. Older home but everything you need to have a good vacation. Owner was immediately responsive to a situation during my stay.
Thank you, Cathy. We're glad you enjoyed your stay!
Everything we had hoped for and more
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.
I am so happy that you enjoyed our beach home and the oceanfront location!
The Perfect Place to Stay!!
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!!!!
Thank you, Beth! Thank you for taking such good care of Hazel's Hideaway over the winter. This was the first time we'd done a winter rental and it worked out beautifully with you and your husband as the ideal guests! Come visit anytime!
The Perfect Vacatin Home!
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!
Thank you, Ann! I am happy to hear that our home was well-suited to your plans for beach time with friends. Please come back anytime! -Kathy
This house is a winner
We loved this house and its location. It was like staying at a friend's place and not just a beach rental. The beds are comfortable and plenty, the kitchen had everything we could want, there is ample beach furniture/toys. The beach is wonderfully quiet and right out your back door. The very private deck was a great spot for watching the ocean. Inside, there are little nooks to cozy up in and other areas for family entertainment. The house is close to grocery & drug stores, restaurants and the Virginia Beach Boardwalk. It's a winner.
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!
