Area Information
The North End beach is wide, the surf is great and because of the sand bars we often have some of the best riding waves on the coast. If you don’t surf,grab a Boggy Board or just body surf the waves. Build a sandcastle, walk the beach, throw a Frisbee, fly a kite, play volley ball or just relax. A life guarded area is just half a block away.

Watch your child catch her first fish. Surf fish, pier fish or take a half day “head boat” (pay per person and everything supplied).

For entertainment go down to the Boardwalk a short distance away. Hop the VB Wave Trolley running on Atlantic Ave in the Boardwalk area.

In summer see free concerts and entertainment every night, fire works 2 nights a week and street performers. From the spring through the fall there are special events and festivals at the Boardwalk almost every weekend.

Even in winter you can ride horses on the beach, see the extraordinary Holiday Lights with a special marine theme, and ice skate at Neptune Park. (Email us for a Calendar of Events)

There are almost limitless things to do close by.

Take a day at Ocean Breeze water park; visit the historic lighthouses of Cape Henry, visit the Virginia Aquarium & IMAX; play golf or tennis; take a sunset dolphin cruise or whale watching in the winter; visit the Life Saving Museum; go bowling; rent a jet ski, go parasailing or kayaking.

Visit the First Landing State Park or the National Wildlife Refuge. In the spring pick your own strawberries and celebrate at the Pungo Strawberry Festival or later in the summer pick blueberries and blackberries.

In nearby Norfolk tour the Battleship Wisconsin, Nauticus, and the Chrysler Museum. See the Tides AAA Baseball at Harbor Park, or the Admirals hockey team at Norfolk Scope in winter.

On the Virginia Peninsula are the Virginia Air & Space Center & IMAX, historic Fort Monroe, Mariners Museum, Virginia Living Museum, Yorktown Battlefield, Colonial Williamsburg & Jamestown, and the fun parks: Busch Gardens and Water Country USA.

5 Stars!!!

October 3, 2015

This is the third time staying at this amazing beach house. It is immaculately clean and very well cared for by the nicest and most accommodating owners. The house is absolutely gorgeous in person, pictures on the Listing don't do it justice. The whole house is decorated in a nautical theme. My daughter absolutely loved the kids room. The kitchen is fully stocked with anything and everything you would ever need. I will never stay at another house when coming to Virginia beach for vacation-this is the one!

Owner's reply:

Pam: It has been our pleasure to share our vacation home with you and your family over the years. You are wonderful guests and it was great to see you again. We were delighted to hear that your daughter enjoyed the kids' room. I know from my own experiences that if the kids are happy, the parents are happy (and alot more relaxed!). Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for your kind review.
We hope to see you all again soon!

All the comforts of home ... At the beach!

August 31, 2014

We rented this house for a week long family beach vacation. The house was perfect! Ideal north end location, clean and well appointed, and steps from the beach. Kitchen was stocked with every pot and pan and utensil you could ever need. The house is well stocked for kids too. Games, DVDs, toys, dishes , and cups. The house also comes with everything you need for a day at the beach - coolers, beach carts, umbrellas, towels, toys, boogie boards, and more. Most of all, the owners couldn't be more friendly or helpful. They are a phone call away to help or answer questions. Highly recommend this property!

Owner's reply:

Meaghan: Thank you very much for your wonderful review. We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and your vacation in Virginia Beach and hope that you'll have the opportunity to come back soon! Thank you for staying with us!

This house was absolutely beautiful. Our mother is semi disabled, and can not climb stairs. The elevator made the entire house available to her. The owners went above and beyond to meet all of our needs. They helped us to rent a beach wheelchair, and gave us info on all of the attractions that interested us. The pictures do not do this home justice. It is brand new, and gorgeous. We traveled with 3 couples in addition to our mother, and all of us had our own private "suite". It is the perfect beach getaway for a family that wants to travel together, but still have some alone time. It is steps from the beach, and blocks from the boardwalk. The owners provide everything you need, from beach towels, to laundry detergent, to spices for cooking. A return visit is definitely in our future. I would rate it a 10 if the option were available. Loved it!!!

David H

Owner's reply:

Thank you Dawn! It was our pleasure meeting you and your family. We hope that a return visit is in your
near future. We would love to have you back. You were wonderful guests!

We rented this awesome house for my son's wedding. Right from the first email the owner's were fantastic. They answered all of my questions quickly and thoroughly. I have severe asthma and they went out of their way to be sure that all of the cleaning products and soap were non-scented and even aired out the house before we arrived. The owners are why this is a magical place. The home is gorgeous and super clean. Everything is labelled and the owners met us when we arrived and explained how everything works (including the elevator). The 4th floor roof was awesome for views with coffee. This fantastic house along with the fantastic owners made it possible for me to enjoy a really special family time. MAGICAL!!!!

Perfect Girls' Getaway!

November 14, 2012

David and Sheila's beautiful beach home was the perfect choice for our annual girls' vacation. Every detail has been thought of in this home. The six of us each had our own bed and only two people needed to share the 3 1/2 bathrooms. The views are amazing and the elevator is very convenient for transporting luggage to the 5 bedrooms. Virginia Beach is driveable for those wanting to go to Colonial Williamsburg. The owners were helpful with recommending restaurants if you can bring yourself to leave the fully stocked kitchen a gourmet chef would be at home in. I have no doubt the Horne's would have granted any request we had, but the home is so perfect we didn't need to ask for a thing! All six of us agree that we will be hard pressed to find a better vacation rental in the future.

Beautiful, warm, spacious and inviting

November 5, 2012

Our family enjoyed 7 days in the Virginia Beach area, in spite of hurricane "Sandy". This vacation rental is a safe, spacious and fun place to go with several families. We each had our own space but thoroughly enjoyed our time together in the living areas, well equipped kitchen with wonderful appliances and TV's in all rooms to watch football games. I would recommend this vacation home to anyone wanting to be by the beach and yet not far from the board walk, shops and lots of fun things to do. Thank you to the Horne family for providing such a terrific place to vacation.!

This home is immaculate! Our family vacation was enhanced by the wonderful amenities available-first rate linens, kitchen ware, appliances and clean, clean, clean! They have everything you could want for beach enjoyment and fun for quiet indoor retreat. The spacious rooms and multi-level layout allowed for great family time or a quiet place all your own. We loved it!

Fabulous Home, 'Best of Show', Ultimate Luxury

May 26, 2011

Words and Pictures do not do this property justice. We travel constantly and this is easily one of the finest homes we have ever stayed in. The owners have done EVERYTHING possible to make your stay enjoyable, and you will be amazed at the DETAIL in every area of the house. Hi Tech all the way starting with the easy to operate elevator, the custom lighting throughout and the amazing audio-visual system. Just bring yourselves because everything else has been taken care of in this property., Extra refrigerator in the garage, beach buggy for hauling your gear to the water (which is across the street !). The place has FOUR decks and sunrise and sunsets are unbelievable from the rooftop deck, but water views from the other decks are superb also. Unlike timeshares, this rental is furnished with high end everything ... fine china, classes, very nice silverware, all the small appliances you need, any cookware you might possible need, and all the little gadgets most properties forget. You will feel like you are staying at a friends home, rather than renting a vacation rental. Owners are SO nice and friendly and since they live in the area, they will ABSOLUTELY certain that you have everything you need and everything is working correctly. They have even put in a DVD library of movies, a CD library of music, and many, many novels by all the best and current authors. Location can't possibly be beat, right in the heart of everything, close to the downtown strip, but far enough away to be ultra quiet and peaceful. If you are going to rent in Virginia Beach, you MUST check out this property
