Hi, I'm James!

I'm a life-long resident of Virginia Beach. I'm a 1962 graduate of Princess Anne High School and a graduate of Old Dominion University in 1968. I retired from the retail automotive business in 1996 after twenty-five years. Since retiring, I've become my own general contractor devoting most of my work time to our rental properties.

My wife, Paulette, is a graduate of Maury High School in Norfolk and a graduate of Old Dominion University. Paulette retired from the Norfolk City School System where she taught Spanish for thirty-two years.

We have two married sons and four grandchildren who we love to spoil.

During our rental off-season, we enjoy traveling in Mexico and throughout the Caribbean. We particularly enjoyed visiting New Zealand, Austrailia and Alaska.

As often as we can, we rent a private residence directly from the owner...it's indeed the best way to travel!

Here are my properties:

Bay Breeze Cottage II is where we stayed and it was a great place to stay. The owners have tried to make sure you feel at home while you are there. My husband our two grandson ages 8&9 and myself was very comfortable there. A nice kitchen , nice size living room and 2 bedrooms. You have a full bathroom off the master and a full bathroom for your guest. You are a few minutes walk to a beautiful clean beach. I would stay here again. A wonderful vacation

Stayed two years in a row

“ Excellent ”
August 2, 2012
This was the second year that we stayed at the Contemporary Castle. I would say this year was much better than the first. They put in a brand new inground pool on the side of the house that was alot of fun for the kids and the adults. It has a few large steps leading into that is great for younger kids so they can have a place to stand or sit and there was plenty of room for my 4 year old to jump in without bothering the others in the pool. I love the fact that the house is right on the ocean. I have a 1 and 4 year old and we would go down to the beach before lunch and come back up for lunch and nap and then go back down to the beach in the afternoon and leave our stuff out so we didn't have to take it back and forth every time. The view from the deck is great, we would stand out there and watch the dolphins playing in the water every day. The owner of the house was great too, after staying in the house the first year and had some complaints he fixed them all for us and we really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the house with multiple family members and there was plenty of room for us to eat and sleep. We got to stay in the master bedroom which has the most space so of course I loved that, but it seemed that all the other bedrooms had enough room in them. All in all it was a great stay and I would def stay in the house again, I just wish Virginia Beach had more things for the kids to do in the area.
