About Laurie Francis
Because we love Virginia Beach so much, we bought a beach home in our 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, and this home is steps from the beach. It offers privacy and many entertaining possibilities, while also giving guests a truly coastal Virginia experience.
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.

Local North End Secret will not be a secret long!
Your home is incredibly updated, decorated, stocked, maintained,... Its in a perfect location. Our family loved staying there and look forward to next year. What great memories we have from our week in your beautiful home. Thanks for making it such a great vacation.
This is our second stay at this lovely home! We have already booked it for next year too!
Laurie and Jeff have thought of everything. It is beautifully appointed and well stocked. The kitchen has everything one would need. It's a great location, steps from the beach and truly a North End secret! We love this place! Can't wait until next summer!
The Brooks Family
If the rating scale is 1-10 our family would give a 15. From age 7-65 we were all thrilled.
Where do we begin!
First impressions matter, we were swept off of our feet.
The hostess is available whenever needed and was so very helpful with everything.
The home is lovely and so comfortable. There were charming little nooks everywhere (complete with books) to have quiet time and be away from the group if that's what we wanted. With 3 generations vacationing together this was a wonderful plus😊�
The kitchen has everything imaginable that we needed, blender, juicer, toaster, water boiler, coffee station, pots, pans, dishes, glasses, there was nothing we needed that wasn't there. Also a gas grill which we used as well!
It was not our plan to eat dinner in but as it was we did every night except for a birthday celebration & our day out of town.
We just wanted to be "home".
Towels aplenty & the beds were comfortable :-)
3 fireplaces, between couches, chairs & table space there is seating for 30 on the main floor.
Also an outside seating area, outside shower to get rid of the sand, and a hot tub to relax in after sundown.
From beach towels, beach chairs, beach toys, boogie boards, and a wagon to get it all to the beach as well as bikes they have thought of everything. And washer & dryer as well.
The open floor plan and decor made it so enjoyable and relaxing.
There were nine in our group and I believe there were six TVs in the house. However, we only watched one very briefly, there was so much to do.
The home is in North Virginia beach away from the large crowds but was only minutes from stores & the boardwalk and everything that that entails.
Laurie's decorating style is outstanding.
The spaciousness & charm of the house are beyond impressive.
We are planning our 2019 vacation now so that we're sure to secure Shorehaven as our home again.
Thank you, Laurie for a vacation we will never forget.
We give it 15 stars!
Thank you, Laurie
from our happy family of 9
A Hidden Gem in the North End of Virginia Beach
I'm almost afraid to brag too much about this incredible getaway for fear that it will always be booked when I want to come back. We stayed here with a group of Dance Moms and daughters (teens) and this place was the perfect location. Steps from the beach with ghost crabs to entertain you for hours...and so many nooks to relax that you never felt underfoot from your roommates. You were less than 10 minutes to the craziness of downtown VA Beach but we loved the quiet neighborhood atmosphere.
Every detail of the home is well thought out and screams Etsy...the hosts were responsive and attentive to all our needs even when several appliances decided to misbehave during our stay. I can't say enough about this place. You will not be sorry you decided to stay here. They provide everything - towels, beach chairs, beach toys, linens and a fully equipped kitchen. All you need is groceries and you are good to go!
I was sad to close the door at the end of the week and wished I could just stay forever.
If you are considering this house --- Don't hesitate...GRAB IT --- It should be a 6 Star !!!
Not only is this home stunning --- the owners were beyond wonderful working with !!!
I did not consider family obligations when I booked the week and they were absolutely a dream to work with responding to my panic from their vacation overseas to fix things! Not only are they super to work with but this home is fabulous. Beach is close enough (GREAT walkway steps away) and far enough from the tourist area that it is not crowded, you will pretty much just find people with homes in the adjacent area there. Home has 3 parking spaces which can be a factor and the yard is as nice as this house is, a lush private area that is walled off from the street. The hot tub was great for the kids coming back from the beach and the grill was right outside the laundry room. We did not use the outside seating but it has a very nice area with the most amazing vine covered pergola area you could imagine - the vines have to be 30 years old at a minimum and they reflect the care taken when the original structure was remodeled by the owners.
As far as the house goes - this is NOT/NOT your average beach rental by any means. Decor and furniture are amazing - and the home is absolutely immaculate to boot ! I just had a total knee replacement 3 months ago and the elevator was a rare treat that if nothing else, is great for getting luggage where it needs to be !
PLENTY of room - easily accommodated our 8 adults (three families) and 2 kids with space to boot. Plenty of space for several families to share this home and still have plenty of privacy with tv's for all. Master has a fireplace and a separate (with a door) sitting room and both have flatscreens ! Great sunroom off secondary bedrooms can be closed off too with a sofa bed and tv.
Really - this home is exceptional - if you are considering it --- you could not find better owners, location or home.
Place is awesome. First class. Recommend to all.
