About C. Owens

A licensed real estate agent, I love everything to do with homes. My family built this home in 2012 to be close to the beach as we absolutely love being close to the water. We especially love cycling, fishing, the great outdoors, outdoor concerts and the like. Come share our 'close' to the beach cottage and explore Virginia Beach for yourself.

C. Owens purchased this house in 2012

Why C. Owens chose Virginia Beach

This parcel of land has been in our family for generations. We finally had the opportunity to build here in 2011-2012. Ground was broken for this cottage in October 2011.

We decided to build in 2012 in order to get exactly what we wanted and this is the perfect fit for us.

The name Hughes-Mitchell is our mother's surname. We have another street in the neighborhood named 'Hughes'. So as you can see this land and area is strong and rich with our family heritage and history.

What makes this house unique

Access to all of the beach activities and just a short bike ride away. There are several bike rental establishments in this area. Bike riding is a very popular way to get around at the Oceanfront. Traffic is often busy and finding parking can be hectic as well as expensive. This home is a vacation place, but located in the midst of a residential area, thus offering ultimate privacy and relaxation. Large porch and outside deck with sitting area. There is a recreation center within a short walk away that has an indoor pool and fitness center for use at a minimal fee.

Easy, convenient, comfortable, affordable. Perfect for our weekend stay!

  • 5 of 5

this was a great spot for 7 old friends to spend the weekend together and watch another friend get married! Despite the hurricane conditions and power outage, we had a great time. The house was well furnished as equipped for our needs. We were even granted an extended checkout time because of the power outage. The house is well located, not too far from the beach and other attractions. I'd definitely stay again.

The location is great. Nice neighborhood. The owner is very nice and accommodating, so nice that I really didn't want to write a review but I think it's necessary so that she and future guest will know the short comings of the house. The house could be great but, there were several small things that are unforgiveable. We made it work because we were only there for a couple of days. The downstairs bedroom which appears to be a studio apartment was terrible. There was so much clutter in the closet that I wouldn't dare hang my clothes in there. The shower curtain was in 3 pieces and not enough shower curtain rings to hold it up. The mattress cover was so old it was yellow. One of the bedrooms upstairs has the bed frame in front of the closet door so that was another bedroom closet that we couldn't use. Another bedroom had a damaged window screen in the closet and some other items the should be stored some place other than the bedroom closet. The sofa covers looked dingy. This house has potential, but too many small necessities over looked.

Owner's Response: We the owners would like to comment on such negative review. Although a few of the above mentioned items have some validity that we will address. Facts; we use the closet in the downstairs studio to store extra blankets and pillows as we have guest that choose to use the studio as a bedroom while others use that area as a sitting area. Fact: the small upstairs bedroom was initially an office and we forced it to become a bedroom as this was more useful to our guest. They want a bed versus a futon with a desk in the room. At the sacrifice of space. The gulag closet door was replaced with a foldable door that is partial blocked by the bed frame but still accessible. Their stay was at the end of a very busy season with an unusual high turnover. The mattress covers could use replacing now.( our mattresses were protected though. Fiction: the sofa cover are earth tones and not dingy as they are cleaned regularly.. For some reason this guest was unhappy at the very beginning of their stay and complains a lot! They even complained that the fridge wasn't cooling ) it was checked and is cooling just fine) and that the air was inoperable when indeed they actually had the system on "heat" . We had a great season and will address valid issues but felt that this poor review was unwarranted. Come see for yourself? Ok?

Quiet, convenient, immaculate and charming

  • 5 of 5

There were 6 of us enjoying a 'Girls Getaway Weekend'. The house was immaculate when we arrived and decorated in a way that feels like home. It was fun to be in a residential neighborhood and yet still close to the beach. A grocery store is a convenient 5 minute drive away. In 15 minutes, you can get away from the crowds by heading north toward 60th Street and beyond where there are public accesses and easy parking (at least after Labor Day!). The owner, Christie, was kind and helpful and a pleasure to interact with.

Comfortable, cozy. Central location.

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean, comfortable, and cozy. The location was a relaxing bike ride away from the main beach. Located in a centralized area for main attractions- VA Beach, Sandbridge, Norfolk. Owner was very helpful answering my questions leading up to and during our stay. Everyone in our group loved the home and enjoyed our time their during our stay.

Very comfortable and spacious home!

  • 4 of 5

Our family very much enjoyed staying in this home! We loved that it is an affordable 4 bedroom house with plenty of space for a family with 3 teenagers. The home is attractive inside and out. The kitchen was well supplied with dishes and cooking items. The fenced back yard and the furniture allows for a very nice BBQ and there is a great fire pit with comfy chairs as well. The house was well insulated and easy to keep cool. Fans throughout were strong and adjustable (allowing the home to be suited to each person's needs). The neighborhood felt safe and was very clean and well kept. In addition to keeping small minor items on the front porch we kept 5 bikes locked on the back porch and a strap on bike rack on the car, nothing disappeared from the property. It seemed that only neighborhood traffic traveled the roads around the house with not much through traffic if any. Small kids could safely play in the front yard. We arrived early and were allowed to enter before check in. We met the very warm friendly owner, Mrs. Owens, we felt we were truly living in a "home".

I am offering a 4 BR 2.5 bath cottage for weekly vacation rental. There is a 7 day minimum stay between Memorial Day and mid September. Rentals are SATURDAY through SATURDAY during this peak tourist season.

This newly constructed cottage is fully furnished and ready to be enjoyed by you and your family and/or friends. It has wall mounted flat screen televisions for your family's enjoyment.

There is a master bedroom downstairs that is fully equipped and has its very own private entrance and sitting area. We find that this is perfect for teenagers or for person who find the stairs challenging. There are 2 queen size beds, 1 full size sleeper sofa and a floor sofa and cot in the smaller 4th bedroom. Home has cable and wi fi and a monitored security system.

Home has a large porch and nice size yard for entertaining and relaxing. Yard is furnished with gas grill, fire pit and table, chairs and umbrella for outside dining and enjoyment. Home has ceramic and wood floors for easy maintenance with black and stainless steel appliances. Cottage is also equipped with washer and dryer. This vacation rental is available immediately.

Home is located 1.1 miles from the Oceanfront. It is also located one block away from a bike trail (bike rentals are available at the oceanfront) that run right to the Oceanfront and is in close proximity to fine restaurants, markets and shopping. There is a recreation center that has an indoor pool and fitness room for use for a minimal fee within walking distance.

This situation is perfect for vacationers, interns, military persons transitioning to the area, or other professionals that will need housing for a short period of time. I am a licensed real estate agent, however, this is my personal real estate that I am offering for rent.

No smokers (inside or out) or pets allowed. References and security deposit will be required
