Nice beach house for our family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We had a family wedding at Virginia Beach and my 4 kids and their families needed a place for a long weekend where 11 of us could stay together. One son was officiating the ceremony and the other three and my wife were doing the music, so the large vaulted great room was perfect for them to set up instruments and to practice.

Bedroom arrangement was odd but worked well for a large family. Parking capacity was ample.

The house was very convenient to the beach with an access path between two beachfront homes a block away, and was able to bicycle to the boardwalk on a paved path in about 15 minutes. This spacious house is in a quiet neighborhood of impressive homes minutes from many Va Beach attractions (aquarium was just blocks from the neighborhood ) and a great choice our vacation stay!

Did have a kitchen plumbing issue but Eric was quick to have it looked at.

Four families met for a wedding and it was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We met from all over the country for my son's wedding. It was a family vacation for all my children and their families. We were all able to go to our separate parts of the house when needed and meet on the second floor to be together...perfect for grown siblings under one roof again! We especially enjoyed the second story balcony. As promised the beach was only one block away and it was not crowded like the boardwalk felt like our own private beach. We were able to spend time there without having to make it a whole day at a time. This was a huge plus at nap time. Eric was extremely accommodating about check-in and check-out, and responded right away if I had any questions. The first floor bedrooms were all attached but all had their own entry and patio. Many of the out of town wedding guests had rented houses and everyone agreed ours was the best! So much so it became the meeting place...much like our house when the kids were growing up. I loved it and all the memories we made while there.

Great beach house ONE BLOCK from the beach, and I mean one block. This huge house was roomy and accommodating. We loved the big deck outside with the grill. The living room was super huge and comfortable.

Great location.

  • 4 of 5

Very close to beach. Located in a quiet and nice neighborhood. Good communication in an unexpected situation. (Garbage collection was skipped due to 7/4). The floor plan of the 1st floor is litttle inconvenient but it would be okay for one single family. Satisfied and hope to stay here again.

Excellent location!

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay here. The home has a great main level with an open floor plan and updated kitchen. We enjoyed the nice sized front deck with grill and plenty of seating. The neighbors were very friendly and stopped several times to say hello while walking their dogs. The home is a two minute walk to the beach which was very private and not crowded. The beach even had lifeguards which I appreciated since we have young kids. Both the home and beach were clean. The location is so convenient since its only a mile away from the aquarium and a couple miles from the water park. Also, the home is only a couple min drive from the boardwalk and some of the best places to eat at Virginia Beach. The house does get colder on the entry level in comparison to the master bedroom and makes temperature regulating a little tough. Overall, we were very happy with our stay and recommend this location.
