About the property

4 bedrooom modern home on the Lynn Haven River.

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 recreational activities on site include fishing, crabbing, swimming, kayaking, sunbathing and grilling out. You can do it all without ever having to get back in the car. If you wish to sample the beaches around the area, you only have an easy freeway driving of 20 minutes. When you are done with the crowds, you can come back to your very own oasis.

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 house is a modern home with all the amenities that you would expect and more. There are 4 bedrooms with comfortable bedding for 8 people. But there is enough room for 10 if need be.

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.

There is a home gym with elliptical machine, tread mill, weights and a weight bench.

There is a full bath with shower downstairs next to the gym. Master suite has a king bed. A deck over looking the water is attached to the masters suite. A 3rd shared full bath with tub and shower is located in the upstairs hallway. The second bedroom has a queen bed. The third bedroom has a queen bed. The fourth bedroom has 2 double beds. All bedrooms has a TV with movie channels. Internet TV is available via Apple TV. You may sign in to your own Netflix or Apple account to watch movies and shows.

The house is booked solidly during the summer by the week. Preferred check in day is Saturday although Sunday to Sunday is possible. Please note that the property is located in a upscale quiet neighborhood. The property is not a good location for events such as weddings or receptions. Holding of such events constitutes a violation of the rental contract.

About Michael Ho

Local business owner

Michael Ho purchased this house in 2004

Why Michael Ho chose 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.

Great Time

  • 4 of 5

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!

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Can't say any more than it's exactly what the description says. You are away from it all but 15-20 from the beach as well. Fishing was great as was the crabbing. I recommend using the crab pot and steaming the keepers. They were fantastic. Owner was on the ball with anything we needed. SAMs club and the grocery store are about a 5 minute drive if that. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to have a quiet private vacation.

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

I have to say this was our first time using HomeAway. Michael was easy to deal with, he responded very quick to emails and text. The property and all the extras are out of this world. The area is amazing and easy to navigate. The house and property offered everything we needed and more. I am looking forward to going back.

The property can certanly be recommended.It was clean, big and lovely.

We were 6 adults with 4 children and we had plenty of space for all. The property is amazing. The owner is nice and responsi ve.

We went to the beach, shopping and dining from Pembrook mall to the west to the boardwalk on the beach to the east.

Not to forget Lynnhaven Mall to the south. All within a short ride.

One week was to short in this great house with everything you could desire.
