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.

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!
PERFECT retreat place
The space was perfect for our group. We had a group of 5 executives going off site to do strategic planning. There was a nice workspace area in the dining room as well as the living room. It afforded us to cook meals together and also to enjoy the beach and the water just a few steps away. Very clean, very well set up.
Convenient And Accommodating
The townhouse is a 2 minute walk to the beach. For vacationers with small children, this makes the location ideal. We were pleasantly surprised with the household supplies that were available to us.
The place was perfect and location was central to everything. We will definitely book this location again next year
Great location, Great house, Great hosts!
We arrived at The Dunes First Landing on a beautiful bright and sunny Saturday. With the threat of Hurricane Florence blarring on every TV and radio station and periodic bands of rain, the townhouse was easy to find, very comfortable, spacious and well maintained, we loved it as soon as we walked in. Even more pleasing was the short but pleasant walk to a gorgeous beach! Every bedroom has a flat screen TV and our son and his wife enjoyed the privacy of the lower level suite. We took the 3rd floor suite which was so very comfy. Our Marine grandson took the ‘kids’ bunk room and had his own private bath also. After bumping his noggin the first night in the bunk he discovered the pull out trundle for 3 nights and was very happy tucked into it. He said it far exceeded his Camp LeJeune quarters...lol. Can not say enough about the private beach. We never encountered more than 10 people on it , so very off the beaten path and very clean. We’ve visited beaches from Maine to Florida and love Virginia Beach but this was our best piece of beach here ever! We had 2 fantastic dining experiences. The Surf Rider at a near by marina has fantastic seafood AND an excellent Bar. Hand breaded shrimp and scrumptious grilled grouper. The first rainy day we went to Ifly an indoor sky diving experience. I did not try it but son and grandson sure did have fun as we watched. Another rainy day we did indoor black light putt putt golf that was a lot of fun too . The beach townhouse is close to everything you would want to do in the area. As Florence approached and the property is in Zone A our hosts were very attentive to our safety. They sent regular updates on the coming storm and since it is so close to the beach they offered a refund if we felt we needed to leave the area. As the danger increased we sadly decided to leave on Wednesday morning, so we had our last meal out at The Butcher's Son a steakhouse that also has delicious pasta dishes . The Marine said it was the best steak he ever had....too rare for me! The Dunes First Landing is awesome, the hosts are caring concientious people returning our missed night’s fee and security deposit within days, and we certainly hope to return there on our next beach vacation and encourage our friends to stay here. Many thanks Ralph and Sandy.
Beautiful home, great location we had a great time.
The house is great. The beach is less than a block away and it is gorgeous. Everything is in great shape and very clean. It could not have been nicer.
