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. This home can not be used as a party house! 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.

Great house, great host, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 9 guys had a terrific stay in Virginia Beach. From the moment we arrived at the house, the host was eager to make sure we were pleased. The house is located far enough from the beach to avoid the busy streets, yet it is still an easy walk away; it is in the perfect location. Additionally, it was so nice having a driveway with free, easy parking.

As for the house itself, our only critique is that there was limited kitchen cabinet space, as most of the cabinets were taken already. This made it hard to store some groceries. However, other than this minor imperfection, we were thoroughly impressed with the amount of space in the rooms as well as the great design of the interior. We were able to sleep 9 comfortably. We also appreciated the number of bathrooms and the outdoor grill. If you have the opportunity to rent this property, do not hesitate! The town of Virginia Beach left our group with so many memories (I certainly recommend Bay Venture Boat Rentals & Topgolf), but this house made it even better.

Owner's Response: It was indeed a pleasure to host this group of young men. Admittedly we were reluctant due to the fact that they all were young and single! They proved that you can't paint all individuals with similar characteristics with the same "brush". They followed house rules and left the house clean and tidy. We make every attempt to provide our guest with plenty of dishes, serving platters and the like. The bottom cabinets are also filled with blender, toaster, coffee makers, etc. maybe we can store some of these items elsewhere and allow more storage cabinet space; a thought. Nonetheless this young group was a remarkable group to host.

The property was immaculate, extremely clean and everything was exactly as pictured.

  • 5 of 5

There was plenty of room for our family and we enjoyed our time together much more than we could have if we stayed in a hotel.

The only thing to look out for is the jet noise which mostly occurred during the daytime when we were out parasailing or beaching!

Virginia Beach's Oceanfront
Car: recommended

I am offering a 4 BR 2.5 bath home for weekly vacation rental. MINIMUM stay varies during tourist season.

This newly constructed cottage is fully furnished and ready to be enjoyed by your friends and or family.

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 persons who find the stairs challenging. There are 3 queen size beds, 1 full size sleeper sofa and a futon (located in an uparades 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 ,table, chairs and umbrella for outside dining and enjoyment. Home has ceramic and wood floors for easy maintenance with black and stainless steel appliances. The home 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
