A mixed bag

  • 3 of 5

Just a few, but important changes, and this place would be great. First of all, this is the attic apt. in an old beachfront property. It's so charming and authentic-- on the face of things, love at first sight. The apt. is nicely outfitted and decorated. Thoughtful touches abound, like liquid body wash and a hairdryer in case you forgot or didn't want to pack yours. Size wise it's perfect for one or two people. The view is incredible and what's not to love about ocean access right out your door!

Even so, I can't imagine staying here beyond a couple of days because of two serious downsides, especially as the weather warms: 1) the bed and pillows are really awful. The sheets were some kind of poly-fiber and kept slipping right off the mattress. The mattress itself sunk toward the middle and was noisy even with just one person on it. The pillows reminded me of seat cushions rather than sleeping pillows. All around, not a good sleeping experience. 2) the windows don't work, and there is no air conditioning, so if it is at all warm (remembering you are in the attic), you are going to roast. The day I arrived it hit 82 in Norfolk and the apt. must have been 110 degrees. It took several hours of a propped open screen door and fan running to make the place even tolerable. I was irritated that I paid to rent a place that I couldn't even sit in because it was so hot.

I've read the owner is going to replace the windows and with that, I think I'd up this review to 4 starts. Next stop, the bed.

revived and relaxed!

  • 4 of 5

This little attic apartment was just the perfect size for a week get away to relax and revive. My only complaint was that I found the kitchen to not be as well stocked as I had hoped. The oven had some issues and the kitchen sink would not hold any water which made it difficult to do dishes. Beyond that though, it was quiet, the beach was very pleasant and the few people we encountered were friendly and respectful of others. I would definitely stay here again.

Just like when we were kids!

  • 5 of 5

The rustic setting outside was just like the beach houses were, when we were kids. The sand, the dunes, the fire pit, the ocean air. Absolutely fantastic. The inside was very cutely decorated and very, very clean. Again, just like when we were kids going to the beach with our parents. All of the amenities were there that one could possibly need or ask for. Pots and pans, coffee maker, TV, internet, beach towels and chairs. We were only there two days and the weather was a bit chilly, so we weren't able to take advantage of the bicycles and the cook grill. Maybe next time. We really loved the place and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a rustic and cozy beach setting. Ken and Patti

Lovely quiet, just what we expected

  • 4 of 5

We loved our visit and stay at the Norfolk Cottage Apartment. The spot on the beach is perfect, secluded and away from everything. A few touch-ups of the place could make it even better. Regardless, we would love to (and probably will) stay again! Thank you!

Beautiful, peaceful space.

The apartment is cozy and conveniently located to stores. I didn't need a car. The beach is in front of the property,, making an evening stroll easy and relaxing.

Charming getaway for 2 with a nice view

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect little getaway for me and my husband. We visited in the winter and were pleased to find that the baseboard heat kept everything nice and cozy for us. Enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the bay, using the thoughtfully provided binoculars to pick out different ships.

There is ample parking for two cars if you need it (we only needed 1 spot) and a reasonably well-stocked kitchen, including the crucial coffeemaker. The beach is just a short walk away, via access directly from the house.

Loved our stay and really appreciated the prompt and clear communications with the owner! Thank you!
