About Leslie Hodeen

Eric and I have been married and have lived in Virginia Beach for 35 years. After raising children, and semi-retiring, we bought this house in the "north end" of Virginia Beach where we had been wanting to live for years. We feel that this house was waiting for us.

Leslie Hodeen purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Leslie Hodeen chose Virginia Beach

This property is one block from the nicest part of the beach where there are only private homes. It is quiet, yet it is only 10 blocks from the boardwalk where you can find great restaurants, bars, shopping and other activities. Great neighborhood for walking/biking.

What makes this apartment unique

Parking for one car; no stairs; kitchenette; gas fireplace; 2 beach chairs; owners on property; comfortable queen size bed.

A.R.E. (Edgar Cayce) Institute is 18 blocks away. There is a spa and a wonderful cafe overlooking the ocean there. There is a shuttle called 'The Wave' which you can catch from the Wyndham Hotel (6 blocks away) which can take you to the boardwalk. 14 blocks to First Landing State Park where there are wonderful walking/biking trails as well as a boat launch. The boat launch is on Broad Bay (connects with Chesapeake Bay) which is great for kayaking and paddle boarding, in addition to motor boating. Virginia Aquarium 4 miles away.

Wonderful unique 1 bdrm beach rental

  • 5 of 5

Loved the proximity to an awesome part of Virginia beach, not crowded !

Unit was very clean, it had a small fridge/freezer and a "micro" microwave oven. Everything you need for a 1 bedroom beach rental. Bike or drive to the restaurants, it was less than 5 blocks. Eric and Leslie were excellent hosts. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Perf little clean private 1 bed w/ wifi and amenities. Great location, away from boardwalk but close enough to walk to. Comfy bed, tastefully furnished apartment. Across the street from beach access. We never used our car. Leslie is super nice and a gracious host even though we never met her:) ....was a text message away if we needed anything. Great set up. First experience with sharing economy and a total score. Recommend highly.

Lovely Weekend at Virginia Beach

  • 5 of 5

My Fiance and I just returned from a long weekend at Virginia Beach. The space was perfect for two people with a small living area including kitchenette, bedroom and full bath. Although we brought our own soaps, towels, etc. Leslie and Eric have the apartment fully stocked. We did take advantage of the beach chairs provided and spent the days soaking up the sun - the beach is a 3 minute walk just across the street. We also loved the binder of recommended restaurants and attractions which gave a nice local perspective on the area. We ate at several restaurants listed in the binder: doc taylor's, nick's, the mayflower cafe, and the commune. All were delicious, fairly priced, and true to the couple's description.

Excellent location. Wonderful property owners.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just stayed at this property for a long weekend; our first trip to Virginia Beach. The location is exactly what we were looking for -- quiet and in close proximity to the beach. And the north side of the beach is perfect for those who want quiet time away from the hecticness of the beach further south. There are a few restaurants within walking distance, but it was easy to access grocery stores, restaurants, and other nearby spots with our car -- everything seems to be a 5 to 10 minute drive away. The unit had everything we needed and it was perfect for a couple. Leslie and Eric are lovely people and we appreciated their insight into good restaurants, tips on scenic spots in the area, and their overall attention to anything we needed to make our stay pleasant. We hope to stay there again soon!

Nice, quiet place for 2

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week's stay near the beach. It was the perfect size for two; very clean and in a quiet neighborhood yet a close walk to an area of the beach where there are no crowds. Restaurants and stores not far and we tried a couple of the owner-recommended restaurants which we very much enjoyed and would return to! The owners are friendly and accommodating. A very pleasant place to stay that we would recommend!
