Recent Virginia Beach reviews

  • 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."

  • Very clean and well maintained home.

    "The property was as advertised everything you would want for a beach vacation. It was an easy 3 block walk to the beach. We had our bikes which made it even easier. The property was comfortable and very clean. The large kitchen had everything you would need to cook at home if that's what you have planned. The air mattress was a lifesaver since the bunk bed is a little Too squeaky for 2 people. Overall this was a great vacation in a great property."

  • Small Cottage Near Beach

    "This is a small cottage near the beach on the ocean side of the main road (Pacific Ave.). There are a number of good things about the house as well as some bad. But overall we enjoyed it and we'd probably stay here again. THE GOOD: Location - Close to public beach access in a quiet area of an otherwise overcrowded city at peak times. Being in the North End allows driving access into town via less crowded roads from Norfolk. Yard - Big private yard for the kids to run around in. Outdoor dining areas. Porch - Awesome screened porch for chilling, reading, sipping... A/C - Central Air worked well the whole time. Washer/Dryer - Nice for drying wet clothes or minimizing dirty laundry to do back home. Price - At least when we stayed the price was reasonable relative to other options. Decor - About as nice as it could be for a house this age and size. Outdoor Shower - For washing off all that sand. Manager - Kept in touch. THE BAD: Size - This is a very small house suitable for a short stay of a family of four or maybe a bit more. But much more would get very tight very fast. Age - The house was built in the 50's and it shows in a lot of ways. No updates likely done this millennium. Charming and rustic if you can see it that way. Otherwise just plain old, but mostly still serviceable. Kitchen - What's the opposite of modern? That's what this kitchen feels like. Though there is a nice dishwasher. Washer/Dryer stacked unit is also in kitchen. Bathroom - The single worst thing about this house is the one and only TINY TINY TINY bathroom. Extremely extremely small, and everyone has to use it. The layout in there is just terrible and there is literally about an 18 inch gap you have to squeeze through behind the shower to get to the toilet and original 1950's sink. Shower itself is so tiny adults could barely even use it. I cannot overstate how non-functional this bathroom is, and after a week, that becomes an issue. Nowhere near ADA compliant if accessibility is an issue for you. Cleaning Company - Whatever cleaning company they use is moderate at best. The place wasn't dirty, but it was abundantly clear that they have to move fast to turn the rental over each week and just skip a number of areas (under the beds, overflowing trash cans outside, etc.). You pay for this cleaning company via an add-on fee, so you'd hope they'd do a better job. It wasn't the worst I've seen by any stretch, but I'd find a new crew."

  • Family sized house with easy beach access

    "This was a great house for four different family groups staying in one location. Beach access was less than a three minute walk. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook in all our meals. The kids loved the large back yard. If you are looking for fancy this is not it. If you are looking for a fun filled family house with space to eat together in the dining room, kitchen, or screened in porch, this is your place. Loved it!! Thanks for a great long weekend in a homey house."
