About Laurie Francis

Since we love Virginia Beach so much we bought a beach home in own town! My husband is a builder who completely renovated this home and I as an interior designer did the interiors.

Laurie Francis purchased this house in 2013

Why Laurie Francis chose Virginia Beach

The north end is the most prestigious and sought after neighborhood in Virginia Beach the location of this home is steps from the beach. It offers privacy and many entertaining possibilities.

What makes this house unique

We renovated this home so that one day we could retire here and entertain our grand kids! We are on the ocean side so my sweet grand children will not need to cross busy Atlantic Ave. and has an elevator should we become unable to do stairs.


Exceptional! 5/5 -

wedding weekend at the north end

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of the wedding weekend at Laurie's fabulous beach house. It was a wonderful alternative to renting several hotel rooms, as the family could all stay together. My family really felt like this was their own personal vacation home. We are looking for reasons to rent again!

Spacious 3+ BR almost beachfront- gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

We came in for five days for a family reunion. The first floor is very open with a large kitchen in the back. It was perfect for having plenty of seating areas for people to sit, relax, and catch up with one another. The decorating in the home is fabulous and all of the amenities included by the owner made this a perfect weekend.

Best family beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row we've stayed at this home. We LOVE IT! The elevator was so nice for my grandparents to use. The beach was so convenient and it makes for such a great time! Would recommend this house to anyone- the decor is also amazing. I'm so inspired for things in my own house:) such a good time here! Thank you Laurie and Jeff!

A perfect get away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at Shorehaven! A really beautiful home with a great lay out! Well stocked kitchen. Accommodated our family of 4 as well as the few extra kids that we had most nights. Going to the beach was a breeze with the beach cart and outdoor shower!

Hope to return next year!

Top Notch in EVERY way!

  • 5 of 5

I knew this home was going to be special just by the pictures and descriptions, but it surpassed even those! We have used VRBO many times through the years, from Florida to Punta Cana, this home takes the GOLD! The home is absolutely beautiful and accommodations top notch. We felt like we were in our own home on the shores of Virginia Beach. Having come for a dance competition it was the perfect place to have several of our friends there for a couple of gatherings. It is a home designed for sharing with others! Even before arriving Laurie was always available and once we were there she had no problem answering my texts and sharing information with us that only a resident of Virginia Beach would know....what a plus!!

The home is perfectly set up with the main living areas on the first floor and sleeping accommodations on the second. We had two families and were able to completely have our own space for sleeping and getting ready. There actually is so much space throughout the home that it was so easy to go find your own for "me" time.

We are the type of family that enjoys cooking and spending time together forgoing the usual tourist traps and restaurants so except for an outstanding meal at a local seafood "dive"...Big Sam's and a fantastic day at Nauticus (for our 9 year old son) we cooked every meal and simply hung out. (think there are 3 TVs, but we never even turned them on!) I would advise that you bring paper goods, because although we were supplied with one paper towel and a roll of toilet paper for each bath it never would have lasted the week. There are plenty of towels and the kitchen has everything you will need!

This home is SPECTACULAR and should we ever get back to Virginia Beach this is the ONLY place I will stay!!

This is an outstanding property!!

  • 5 of 5

In April, 2016, my family and I spent the weekend at this home. There were nine adults. As we entered the front door, one person after the next exclaimed WOW. This home is absolutely gorgeous. Plenty of room for everyone. The master bedroom is large with a nice sitting area. The master bath is huge with a garden tub and a large walk-in rain shower. We had a couple of physically handicapped family members who took advantage of the elevator. It is very roomy, and worked great for them. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need: pots, pans, plates, cutlery, dish towels, etc. A 30 second walk from the front door, and through the sand dunes, brings you to the beach and the Atlantic Ocean. This part of the beach is about 2 miles north of the Virginia Beach Boardwalk, so it was not crowded.

The owners of the property have done an exceptional job renovating this property. They have thought of almost everything. It is clean and very well maintained. The property listing is totally accurate, although this listing does not do justice to the beauty and convenience of this property. Mrs. Francis, the owner of the property, responded quickly to all of my questions by email. She is a very nice and efficient person to work with regarding the rental.

I would recommend this property to any of my family and friends who want a vacation home that has almost everything to offer. On our next stay in Virginia Beach, my wife and I plan to stay at this wonderful property again, if at all possible.
