  • Comfortable

    "We enjoyed our stay in Virginia Beach very much and we would stay at this property again as it offered reasonable value for the area. The owners are helpful and friendly. The location is perfect - the beach is just steps away and is not very crowded at all, even during high season. The layout is terrific as two of the bedrooms are separated by a breezeway and are not part of the main building which affords a larger family lots of space and privacy. The furnishings were comfy and well laid out for the space. The A/C units are efficient and noiseless which I was overjoyed about because we were staying during a heat wave. I had a couple of tense moments trying to haul loads of laundry down the stairs and along an uneven route to the laundry room, which was inconvenient and a bit dangerous - a laundry chute would be a welcomed addition if feasible/possible. The house itself is almost 50 years old and while charming, could really use some updates (kitchen and bathrooms). Minor repairs are needed to the sliding doors going out to the sun deck (we chose not to use the sun deck for fear of doing further damage to the door that didn't want to budge) as well as the French doors leading to the bunk beds (doors stick and are hard to close; locking mechanism seems to be broken and my daughter cut her hand on the sharp protrusion from the door knob). Finally, a propane BBQ would be much cleaner and more convenient. We ended up cooking everything on the stove because we didn't want to take the time to wait for charcoal or deal with having to clean it out and wipe it down afterwards. But truthfully, these complaints are minor and did not significantly detract from a terrific week in the sun."

  • Terrific location and good for elderly or disabled guests

    "We had a great stay at this property. The pool and hot tub were a big hit! The short one-block walk to the beach was terrific. We were able to go to the beach so much more than we have on past trips when we stayed further away. We spent all day in the private pool and then walked to the beach around 5:00 to enjoy the sand and surf. The beach was never crowded. There are plenty of grocery stores and restaurants within 20 minutes drive. We chose the property in part because of the friendly layout for my 86-year old mother in law who uses a walker. She was able to easily enter the home (no front steps) and navigate among the first-floor bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, family room and out to the pool with ease. I highly recommend this property if you are traveling with anyone who needs accessible accommodations. It is difficult to find beach rentals that are accessible. The guest cottage was also a nice plus. It afforded just enough privacy away from the main house but still easy access to the pool, hot tub, etc. The property was clean on arrival and included enough toilet paper, hand soap and bath soap for the week. We didn't have any problems so didn't need to contact the owner other than for a question on Day 1 which she responded to promptly. Please note that, as other reviewers have also mentioned, the photo of the second-floor bedroom is showing you an open cutout in the wall. The room is not enclosed on all sides and the open wall is right above the kitchen. Unless everyone in your home goes to bed and wakes up at the same time, you are not going to be able to use this room as a bedroom because of the noise. We ended up not using it for anything other than a TV room for the kids. Luckily we didn't need the space."

  • Great place to stay!!

    "What a beautiful piece of property along the James River. 6 of us stayed here quite comfortable over a long weekend. You could tell the home was much loved by the family as it felt so welcoming and comfortable. The owner was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions. We used the fire pit on our first night enjoying the cool evening while sipping on some wine. The walk down to the private beach can get a little steep but is well worth the trip down. We collected shells and took lots of pictures. We used this house as a base for visiting Williamsburg and Yorktown. The ferry is about 20 minutes away and free!! I wish we had not visited after the time change as it was always too dark when we got back to the house to enjoy the outside. Also, I highly recommend you get there during the daylight hours as finding the dirt road to turn on to was a little difficult at night. Would love to go back when it's warmer and take advantage of the private beach. Thanks for an enjoyable weekend!!"
