Lori was an excellent communicator. We loved our stay. The house was clean and comfortable. We didn’t mind the retro look of the house :-). Was absolutely perfect for my family. We vacation in the area every year and this has been our favorite home. Ages ranged from 3-almost 80 and it was wonderful for all of us. Elevator was a big bonus that helped with luggage and laundry. As expected for a home on the beach, the deck and steps were a bit weathered, just wore our sandals and it was no problem. Hoping to stay next year!

The house has direct access to the beach. There are Virginia Beach lifeguards stationed within a few yards of the deck-way that leads to the beach. Although it is a public beach, it almost seemed as if it was our own private beach. We were able to surf fish from the beach front during off-peak hours. and caught a couple of nice Redfish to boot.
The house is very spacious and was sufficiently furnished. Our fairly large group never felt crowded or lacked for privacy.
The house is in a great neighborhood and is conveniently located near attractions, restaurants and just about anything one might need to make your stay enjoyable.
The owner Lori was great to work with. She lives nearby and was attentive to our needs and concerns, before, during and even after our stay.
We all had a great time.
On the downside, as has been mentioned in other reviews, the house needs some routine maintenance and renovations. Some of the comments about the decking: stairs, rails and walkways, don't really begun to scratch the surface of their actual condition. They are in serious need of replacement and currently present a safety hazard. Many of the boards and railings are old, rotted, weak and incapable of supporting weight, unless you walk or step gingerly. The steps leading to the beach are of new construction. It would be nice if the remainder of the decking was replaced as well. The deck is an accident waiting to happen.

The property is less than fit. The walkway to the beach is falling apart. Make sure you were shoes. It also is over growing with vegetation. The patio door was broken. The kitchen drawer fell apart and the kitchen sink handle falls off. The provided beach umbrellas are unusable as the bottom pipes are broken and we’re laying all over the place. The provided beach chairs are very rusting and we were afraid to use them. The outdoor shower had several unwanted items of other renter laying around. The fenced in yard is not completely fenced in as the main garden entry door was laying in the flower bed across the driveway. The AC is ridiculous. If you turn the 4th story bedroom thermostat is turned down and the door closed the 3rd floor starts to overheat. The bedroom closest to the beach on the 2nd floor does not cool down. The gas grill was left nasty so we could not use it. The pool table is in a dark musty room on the first floor.
On the bright side, we watched the dolphins play in the surf most mornings. The furniture was comfortable and kitchen fairly well stocked.
I will not come back to this property.

Property is in desperate need of repairs inside and out. The house is listed for sale and it seems that no further investments in improvements will be made. The garage is filled almost completely with junk. Unfortunately, you have to walk through the garage to get to the laundry room and the billiard room. The first time I walked in, some sort of rodent scurried through the mess.
I left the first night at around 2:30 AM. The rest of my family stayed on until Thursday night. The mattresses are rock hard in most of the rooms. There are safety issues. Some of the treads on the stairs had popped nails. All the wood in the outdoor area is in need of replacing. The walkway to the beach is especially dangerous. Wooden side rails are replaced by yellow caution tape. Many of the boards are rotted and/or curling and extra caution is needed to avoid the dangerous areas. The bottom steps that had washed away were replaced, but the rest of the walkway needs repair/replacement. A kitchen drawer does not stay shut closed and opens if you open the drawer above as well. My daughter turned from the fridge and the drawer had opened. She had a nasty bruise on her leg as a souvenir.
All the ceiling lights in the kitchen were literally hanging loose as though an earthquake had shaken them down.
As stated in another review, the master bedroom window does not close entirely. There are loose tiles in the master bathroom and another drawer that won't stay shut.
The yard is not fully enclosed so dogs must be leashed.
Also, the front, exterior lights don't function.
It was only from other reviews that I learned, after I had booked, that linens are not provided. The linen rental company shared that this owner is one of the last to not provide guests with linens. As much as the rent is, guests should not have to arrive and then make up their beds.
The house was not entirely clean: sticky kitchen counters, trash on the floor in the laundry room, dirty outdoor grill.
The only thing to recommend this house is the location.

The property held our family. Lots of sleeping space. Deck very run down and stairs to beach torn off in a storm. Difficult getting our 80 year old mom to the beach. We did enjoy one beach day during our stay. Glad we got together and had a bed for everyone.

There is currently no direct beach access. The outdoor decks are not ready to be used. The elevator is for luggage and gear only, it is not rated for people. The master bath sinks surfaces are peeling away, the master bath window is broken and does not close. There are no sheets or towels and must rented thru a second business or brought by the guest , which is not stated in the house description.

We have been renting property through VRBO for years. This by far, has been the most difficult review for me to write; that’s saying a lot because I’m an author. This house could easily be a 5 star if there weren’t so many issues. It’s a wonderful house and the layout is a great space for families to spread out and spend time together.
Lori was excellent owner to work with; seemed very nice and anxious to please. It breaks my heart not to be able to give her a better review.
The house has many positives. If you were any closer to the ocean, you’d be in it. The view is amazing and watching the dolphins was a treat. The kitchen is extremely well stocked. The living room furniture is very comfortable. It would have been nice to have a small desk on the other side of the fireplace for computer space. Maybe the desk from the master could be moved down there. It’s really a waste upstairs. The pool table room was nice to have but I’m not sure why guests are routed through the Sandford and Son type garage to get to it as well as the washer/dryer when there is another option.
I lived in a house on the bay growing up, so I’m quite aware that the elements take a toll on properties. When we booked the property we knew it needed some TLC, but we were surprised and discouraged that so many things and/or problems that had been mentioned over, and over again, in past reviews still existed. The deck, railings and walkway are still in pretty bad shape. The kitchen handles and cabinet hinges need to be fixed. I pulled open an upper cabinet and the handle came off with such force that I lost my balance falling backward. Thankfully, a family member was close enough to catch me. The back burner on the stovetop didn’t work. The microwave over the stove didn’t work so we didn’t have a light or exhaust fan when cooking. There was a countertop microwave, so we were able to heat things up as needed. The cam light over the sink was hanging from ceiling and there is a hole by the light over the dining room table. The towel bar in the half bath was falling off, The sliding glass doors were broken and could not be locked. The walkway leading down to the beach was tied off with string giving us no beach access. The sinks in the master bath were badly rusted. Vanity could use being replaced. Bathroom could use a bright colorful coat of paint over the dark paneling.
We would only stay again if we were confident repairs had been made.
