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 Northeast 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.

This is a fantastic house, complete with everything you need!! Beautifully decorated & landscaped!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week, this home is absoultley perfect in every way!! It's gorgeous and truly felt like our home away from home our entire stay from the moment we arrived. It's a great location on the north end away from the traffic & people, but close enough to visit restaurants and shopping in just a few minutes.... which we offers more privacy! It was also wonderful that it's such a short distance to the beach walk from the front door....definitely a great choice and the most well appointed homes we've stayed in!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVED!!!! You will too!!!!

Handicapped friendly not handicap accessible

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent a week is August here with our two sons, their wives and their families (two children eight and four). This is a beautiful Beach home! Convenient to everything you want on vacation as well as tastefully decorated! The owners have provided all the little things you'll be looking for at the house. There are even the supplies you'll need to get started in the kitchen. A small step stool in the bathroom for the little ones would be a nice addition as the sink is high.

Unortunately we were Very Disappointed in the handicap accessibility. Once inside the home is very "handicap friendly". The elevator makes the second floor assessable and the Master bedroom has plenty of room for moving around. However it is Not "handicap accessible". There are several steps into the house at both front and back entrances and no ramp. Consequently I had to be carried in and out of the building every time. Fortunately I had someone with me who could carry me. Handicap friendly does not mean handicap assessable.

Please Laurie, you should be sure to make all handicap renters aware that there is no ramp. If I had not had my adult male sons with us, I would not have been able to get inside to enjoy your beautiful home at the beach. We would have had nowhere else to stay after our long trip across the country.

It would have been five stars if there had been a ramp for access. So if stairs are not a problem you have found Great spot to vacation in Virginia Beach.

Owner's Response: Lynn, I apologize that the home was not completely handicapped accessible. I will revise that information in our listing. Thanks for the helpful feedback! Sincerely, Laurie Francis

What a GREAT place!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome, the location was also great. Just steps to the beach and parking right in front of the house. The house came with everything we needed and more. From the fully stocked kitchen to the beach toys. Plus it had any elevator, yes I said elevator. If your coming to VB you'll have to stay here. We'll be back!!!

Beautiful home, Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This is the best house I have rented at the beach! It was beautifully decorated, modern, well equipped and very clean, with all the conveniences of home. It is right next to the path to the beach and had plenty of parking. We had some friends and family come to visit us at the house, and they loved it, too. Everyone wanted to rent it in the future. We do, too! Thank you to the owners!!
