Property description

Life on a Sandbar! Placed directly on the water, this house epitomizes "Life is Good". Everything is easy here. The house is situated for entertaining and has a beautiful sun room that overlooks the bay for those who want to get away from the crowd. Three bedrooms with comfortable queen size beds, two full baths, great room, sun porch, 2 outdoor porches and a yard that leads right to the beach make it the perfect family vacation home! And, kayaks are provided for people who want to get out on the water! Bring your boat your fishing pole - in fact bring all your water toys. You can fish, swim, float and anchor your boat right in bay and access in front of the house. We only rent this property through VRBO, so if you see it listed anywhere else, it is a scam. This is also a smoke-free house and property.

Willoughby Bay is protected from a lot of the big winds and weather, but you have direct access to the Atlantic Ocean!! Centrally located near everything! 40 minutes to WIlliamsburg, 20 minutes to Virginia Beach, 50 minutes to Water Country, 20 minutes to museums, concerts, 4 minutes to a festival park and 2 minutes to two marinas! This house makes vacation easy! And, the kitchen was completely remodeled in March - fully equipped for your fabulous summer creations.

There is a boat ramp 1/4 mile away. where you can put a boat into WIlloughby Bay. From there you can get to the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean - or just boat around the corner to the house where you can anchor in front. Two kayaks are provided. The water in front of the house has a gradual decline with no quick drop off. Make sand castles on the beach in front of the house or sit on the porch in the shade of a huge tree and watch the sunset over the water.

Life is good . . . . on a sandbar.
