About Eric Compton

I grew up in the New York area and raised my children in the Virginia Beach beach house.

Eric Compton purchased this house in 1988

What makes this house unique

Its nice to be able to walk out your door and down one block to the beach for stroll along the private beach or a fun beach day with the family.

Loved it!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! a group of moms and daughters traveling to VB for a dance competition. The house was clean, very comfortable and in a safe quiet neighborhood. We didn't mind the set up of the downstairs bedrooms. The best part is the BEACH!!! We had so much fun crab hunting at night and jumping waves during the day! I loved how private the beach was compared to the beach along the boardwalk. Eric was very responsive, I would for sure return and recommend!

Filthy and needs major updates

  • 1 of 5

Not in any shape to be rented. Floors and showers were filthy, mold on shower curtains, ants in kitchen, old food in fridge, cobwebs in corner. This house has potential but needs a deep cleaning, de-cluttering and updating of all rooms.

Great location. Lower level needs some attention.

  • 3 of 5

We met at this great beach house for a family get together. We had 9 adults, 3 kids and 1 infant. We all fit with added blow up mattresses and pack and play. The main level and upper level were very nice with an unusual decor. The decks were great for hanging out and relaxing. The 3 rooms on the bottom floor were a bit awkward when you have guest that get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. I think if a hallway were place there to separate the rooms I would have rated this 4 1/2 stars. I believe the bottom floor is meant more for kids but if you have a lot of guests, adults will be using those bedrooms on the bottom floor. The mattresses were oddly loud. With every move, there was a loud noise so it was a bit strange to get use to hearing that when your bed buddy was moving or the guests in the other room (rooms on bottom floor) were turning over in their sleep. Overall, we loved the close location to the beach. The neighborhood this house is in is very nice and has a friendly feel to it. The owner of the property was friendly and quick to respond to questions or issues. The AC fan broke during our stay and a repair man was out the same day and problem fixed. I would recommend this property. I do have a request for the bottom floor bathroom for the owner. It would be a good idea to install shelves or something smaller than that huge storage cabinet by the bathroom door. It was awkward, in the way and not useful in the bathroom. We had a great time.

Bachelorette Party

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time over Labor Day weekend. Despite the rain the location of the house was perfect for town activities and beach walks. Eric was available for all questions and very explicit with directions. The weekend went smoothly and the house was a perfect fit for 10 girls!
