River Haven is a 3.4 acre waterfront wooded estate in the resort city of Virginia Beach. This property is perfect for family vacations.

The pool is now heated for your comfort. You will no longer feel that chill when getting in the water.
The boat dock has ample space for lounging as a second focal point of your enjoyment. You can see beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the dock. Crab traps are provided so you can catch fresh crabs for that real Chesapeake Bay experience. Previous guests also had fun catching fish from the boat dock.

The kitchen has just been upgraded with high end appliances including a double wall oven, induction cook top, under the counter ice maker, extra large refrigerator and freezer. An outdoor grill is available of course.

About Michael Ho
Local business owner
Michael Ho purchased this House in 2004
Why Michael Ho chose Northeast Virginia Beach
This is the best property around for a secluded relaxing summer vacation. Ample activities are available and you do not have to leave the property to have fun. It is also very close to all area beaches. The house is great for families with children.
What makes this House unique
For those who like sea food, fresh blue crabs can be caught from the dock during the summer. You can also fish right off the dock. For the serious fisherman, some of the best fishing on the East Coast is available locally. Pool is heated so that even adults will want to get in not just kids.

The property was beautiful, a meandering path to the dock. The space in the house was good with a big kitchen and living space. Nice pool. Unfortunately, we were unable to use the boat lift or dock due to electrical problems (no adjustment was offered or made). Also, after a storm passed through, the pool needed attention (in addition to the hour that we provided). Michael came over after work, but there was no one there before 5, which in our opinion was unacceptable. For a weekly rental, there should have been staff available to focus on the needs of the property during the day in my opinion. If it were a monthly or yearly rental, the response was perfect. Additionally, the overall cleanliness of the property was not that great. The previous renters must have had a dog because the place was covered in fur. There was also evidence of past insect problems that the cleaners did not address (dead roach in the kitchen drawers) and was totally unacceptable. There was an AC glitch as well. To cool the living space was not an issue, but 2 of the 3 bedrooms would not cool down, I don't know about you, but I'd rather have a cool bedroom and warmer living space than what we had.
If we didn't rely on the reviews so much in making our vacation choices, I would not write any of this because I don't like to respond negatively, but reasonable expectations were not met while the high rental price was.
On a positive note, Michael was easy to reach and responded either via text or calls.
Thank you for the feedback. It was unusual to get a hurricane type storm in August.
Dear future tenants, this was a unusual weather event. Please rest assure that the pool is always crystal clear and at a comfortable temperature.
Property was exactly as it was described. Definitely secluded and private which was a plus for us!
Our stay was great! The kids had so much fun. Would definitely recommend to other.
Only complaints were the neighbors to the right of the house, they created alot of constant, loud, and annoying noise. It would have also been nice if the jacuzzi was up and running.
But really besides those 2 things the place was great!
I am glad everyone had a good time. Thank s for the feed back.
Loved. loved, loved it.
Everything was fantastic. Plenty of room for everyone and all their things. This house is not only amazing, Michael has stocked it with everything you could possibly ever need. My only complaint is that the pool is so warm on those very hot, humid days it isn't that refreshing plunge you are hoping for. Thank you Michael. We had a wonderful time in your lovely home.
Thank you for the great review.
The pool temperature is adjustable.
A great house. Lots of room. The pool was amazing as was the dock. It would be nice if you could see the water from the house. The guys enjoyed fishing and the kids loved the pool. If you travel with kids you should bring you're own kids kitchenware as everything is glass. Also there is a step down from the dining room to the lIvins room that is tile, be mindful of this as one of our little ones hit his head wit in the first hour. Overall the house is great and I would definitely go again!
Thank you for the great review.
Glad you all enjoyed the waterfront property. It is a lot of fun to catch crabs and even more fun eating them.
Great place with everything you need
This was a perfect place for us, it was very nice and had everything it said. Private but close to everything. We can't wait to go back.
Thank you for the nice review.
We loved the property! The boat dock, pool, kitchen, office and just the overall space is wonderful! The home is tucked away but within 10-15 mins of many shops. If we need to visit Virginia Beach again we will be sure to book this home!
Thank you for the nice review.
