  • 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."

  • Perfect location for our family reunion!

    "We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful well-kept farmhouse. The rooms and beds were comfortable, and there was plenty of shared living space to spend time in together. An extra bathroom would have been nice, but the views and location made up for that."

  • Better than the pictures......Virginia Beach, had a great time during Hurricane Mathews !

    "We came up to Virginia Beach for a wedding , as did Hurricane Mathews (the un- expected guess). We had a great time visiting family we hadn't seen for years. We loved the house, we felt at home from the moment we walked in. It is better in person than in pictures, super clean. We met the neighbors, and their dogs, very nice people, good , quiet location. We met Phil, ....very nice gentleman, treated us as family. Loved the back yard. We would definitely come back and stay here again. Thank you Debbie and your family, for allowing us to share your home. ps. we enjoyed picking the fresh figs from the tree at front, and had them for breakfast each morning. thank you. The Encio family."
