Overview

About the property

Our cool, comfortable and very spacious (1,000 sq. ft.) one bedroom apartment with exposed brick walls, high ceilings and concrete floors has a "downtown" city feel! It sleeps two to four and is located within walking distance to many entertainment venues and restaurants in areas like the Neon District, Ghent, and Downtown Norfolk. Enjoy a gourmet kitchen, secured garage parking and complimentary bikes.

The building itself, built in 1915, was Virginia's oldest auto dealership called F.A. Roethke DeSoto. It has recently undergone an extensive historic renovation cumulating in the design of Fort Tar Lofts. The preservation of this historical structure is noted by the industrial finishes found in this studio, which include such features as original concrete flooring, exposed brick and masonry walls, 14-ft ceilings and expansive 9-foot windows that make the interior of this studio like no other in Hampton Roads, all with 1st floor on-site secured garage parking.

Our convenient location is less than a five minute walk to the Chrysler Museum, Chrysler Hall and The Harrison Opera House. Downtown Norfolk, with its many exciting restaurants, superb night life and premier shopping is located just a half mile away, as well. The Tide, Norfolk's new light rail system, which can be used to easily travel anywhere throughout downtown Norfolk and into Virginia Beach is nearby as well.

Much, much better than a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Norfolk for a wedding and chose to stay here rather than at the downtown hotel where the rest of our family stayed. We loved this place-- its hip decor, its great location, and its secure parking. This property is clean and quiet, and there were plenty of dishes and extra linens. If we're ever in the area again, we will definitely want to stay here.

Perfect apartment for short or lon visits to Norfolk

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here wil my 73yo mom while visiting family in Norfolk for a high school graduation. The place was perfect and actually bigger than expected. Four people would be extremely comfortable. It was very safe with the secure garage parking and entry. It was centrally located and had all the essentials. Good wifi, two TVs, good A/C, basic kitchen supplies, etc. Michael was incredibly responsive. I arrived hours after my mother and he walked her through everything and made sure she was all set up and comfortable. We plan to use this apartment again next time we are in town.

Owner's Response: Jaime, glad we could be accommodating. Easily the best part of being an airbnb owner is meeting great people from all over the world and from all walks of life. You and your Mom easily fit that description!
