About C. Owens

As a licensed real estate agent, I love everything to do with homes. My family built this home in 2012 to be as 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 place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have always stayed in the smaller house, which is a great house, but the owner recommended we stay in the larger one this summer. We have 2 moms each with a son and daughter. The kids loved this house. It was a great stay as always.

Very nice accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

My family and me had a very nice stay over the weekend. Was able to have some of my relatives from the area come over for dinner Sunday night, and while that got a little crowded it worked out fine.

I never wite reviews because it is not really my thing, but this 100% deserves the 5 stars, I rented this house for a long girls weekend. It slept 8 of us super comfortably and it was wonderful! the house had everything we needed and was absolutely adorable in a very quiet and relaxing neighborhood AND close to the beach.

The owner is exceptionally attentive and made sure that any and all questions were answered in a very timely manner. We absoultely will be back. I have zero complaints, zero. Thank you for such a wonderful vacation!!

Great location, quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

This was my first experience using VRBO so I wasn't sure what to expect. The house was perfect for our family vacation. Overall it was spacious and clean. The bedrooms were large and the 2 1/2 bathrooms came in handy. Everything we wanted to do was less than 5 miles away. Just a few minor things I noticed; there were holes in the corners of one of the couch covers, some drawers in the refrigerator had tape on them, the towels supplied need updated and we had to prop the charcoal grill up with a brick to balance it. These things are easy to fix and wouldn't affect us choosing this location or owner for future vacations. FYI, there's a checkout list in a manual that I wasn't aware of until I was on my way home. Be sure to review during your stay.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to host this family. We're nearing the end of tourist season and yes -some guest used bleach when washing towels, they are not ragged but has a few has bleach stains -the loveseat cover has been ripped along the seam lines from constantly being tucked in (they're washed weekly and were not if the best quaility to start off with) - totally unaware of the unstable grill; this will be addressed immediately We make every effort to correct inadequacies as quickly as they are called to our attention. We take pride in offering clean and affordable vacation accommodations. This task become even more challenging when our quest request a late checkout and the arriving guest request an early check in and we try our best to accommodate both. Come visit with us and we can assure you that the above mentioned areas will have been addressed! Welcome

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
