About Ralph Ricardo
Retired Navy Captain and business owner, grew up in the area and stayed after Navy because I love it. My wife of 32 years shares duties with the property. She hails from south Texas and is interested in English Bulldog rescue, and loves the beach also. Two college graduate kids have flown the coop. We are committed to making your visit as enjoyable as possible.
Ralph Ricardo purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Ralph Ricardo chose Cape Story by the Sea
The beach is steps away, no roads to cross, and it features calm surf without the boisterous crowds at the oceanfront. And unlike the oceanfront you are steps from beautiful First Landing State Park with hiking and bike trails; an incredible nature experience. All furnishing are brand new (spring 2016). This property has been in the family almost 50 years but condo was built in 2005.
What makes this Condo unique
Location! Beach and park, an unbeatable combination.

Wonderful location! House was well stocked with everything we needed for a wonderful weekend!
We loved our stay here! It was great for our family as it is more laid-back and quiet than the boardwalk hotels. It was well stocked with everything we needed to stay for three nights. There are plenty of restaurants close, but the kitchen had all of the kitchen tools needed, and we stayed in and cooked mostly. We were a one-minute walk to the beach. Our two young girls loved the beach and their bunk beds. We can’t wait to come back!
Perfect for our Thanksgiving Weekend
As someone who managed my own vacation rental for four years, I am very aware of the difference between a property that checks all of the boxes and one that is exceptional; this one is exceptional.The attention to detail and ensuring a comfortable stay for the guests was apparent and much appreciated. The kitchen had everything we needed, including good knives, plenty of dishes and pots and pans, fresh coffee, oils and spices in the cupboards, and plenty of kitchen linens. The sheets and towels and pillows were all high quality, And the location! A very short walk to the beach, and we loved being so close to First Landing State Park. Every day we walked a different trail - so beautiful even in late November. I definitely recommend this property..
Perfect place to relax and feel like you're at home
We were looking for a place to stay at Virginia Beach that allows us time to met our 3 month old grandson. Our daughter, husband and grandson joined us at Dunes 1st Landing. We love to cook and spend time together over breakfast and dinner. The home fit the bill. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed to prepare meals. The kitchen, dining room and living room was one large open space with plenty of windows and a slider to let in light. Having the living space on the second floor let in even more light. Nothing was cheap about the fixtures. Everything was clean and neat. If you want easy access to the beach and have peace and quiet in your own getaway home, I would recommend renting the Dunes at 1st landing.
A Great Rental
Other than the carpet being a bit worn and stained, the rental was very clean and well equipped. Unlike most vacation rentals with mismatched dinnerware, glassware and utensils, those elements were in place and in good condition. The beds were extremely comfortable. Owners have gone out of their way to provide everything guests need for an enjoyable stay. I would be back next weekend if the rental was available.
Ralph and Sandy's home was lovely. Super clean, well appointed and perfect location. We would rent it again!!! Perfect for families and a small group of friends.
Great place with close proximity to the beach. Very comfortable beds and luxurious linens!
We had a great stay here- everything we needed was here- a well stocked house and incredibly comfortable. Thank you Ralph and Sandy!
