Wonderful & Charming Ocean Retreat

Our stay was lovely and the owner was marvelous to work with. The place is so charming and peaceful with just a terrific ocean view. We watched the ships gently flow by and the sunrises were stunning. The home is spacious and inviting. It was clean and fresh when we arrived, and we immediately could relax and just enjoy the time on the ocean and each other. We had cozy fires a few cold nights and cooked most meals in with such a well-appointed kitchen. We also found some terrific local restaurants that were a treat. We had a marvelous stay!

Family Sanctuary

My family of 9 gathered for much needed quality time together. All ages from adults to the youngest children 2 and 3 year olds enjoyed the cozy cottage. Family meals around the dining table, late night talks on the screened in porch, and countless walks on the beach to watch the dolphins all created lasting memories for my family. Martha's beach cottage really is a sanctuary for families to step away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life and create life long memories. My family can't wait to visit again!

Great experience

I spent a week with my wife and 3 kids in mid-July 2014. The place is exactly as described on the website. We enjoyed our stay. We will come back soon.

Wonderful !!!

Wow what a beautiful beach house!!! We spent a wonderful week my parents, my husband and I and our two teenage girls ..... The house is very well located with a great view of the ocean just a few steps walk from the beach. We had the chance to see beautiful dolphins swimming in front of us and large naval ships towards the Chesapeake Bay ...... Nice house very clean and tastefully decorated .... This house has 3 large tastefully furnished rooms and two bathrooms including two showers, a very comfortable lounge and a nice desk for users with free wi-fi service. A convivial dining room for six people very well equipped with a nice kitchen lunch counter .... A charcool grill was available for BBQ lovers. A handy outdoor shower is located on the side of the house. The central air conditioning was much appreciated for our week of intense heat in early August. Not to mention the beautiful veranda (porch) on the side of the house and adjacent to our living room with a view of the ocean and topped rattan furniture to relax and listen to the waves .... There are also two convenient parking spaces. Martha, the owner and her daughter were very nice and helpful. The beach is beautiful and intimate and only a few owners of the neighboring houses will take place. We enjoyed not having a beach crowded with people and be able to relax at the sun. Well an unforgettable week! I highly recommend this beach house located in Virginia Beach near the Chesapeake Bay .... Martha thank you ....

Just Perfect

Thank you Martha for the opportunity to enjoy your beach home for a few days. It is truly a comfortable, kick your shoes off and relax a while kinda place. We had the beach almost to ourselves but could ride our bikes to the boardwalk to people watch. We watched the ships coming and going, the dolphin performed, the osprey were fishing, and we enjoyed listening and watching for the jets! We sat on the screened poarch and read everyday and the sea breeze was so cool only used the air the last day. We tried out a few new spots to eat including Croakers and the shell hunting at low tide was fun. Hope we can get back again soon!

Owner's reply:

Thank you very much, Debbie. Hope you will come back.

Cozy beach house

We loved our time at this beach house! Very private location with a short walk to the beach and short drive to the board walk and shopping. We had cooler weather and appreciated the fireplace. The bedrooms were nicely appointed and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare a home cooked meal. A short drive to the aquarium and Dam Neck Naval base. There is internet but no wireless, not a big deal since we were on the go most of the time. Owner was easy to work with. I would definitely rent this unit again if we return to the area.

Loved the Location

Very quaint and away from the busy boardwalk. Close to many great attractions. We saw dolphins every morning and watching the ships coming and going into the bay all day was pretty neat. Our condo was clean and comfortable, and owner was very nice. Remember to bring sheets, towels, and t.p. though! Only wish the weather would have cooperated a little more.

Ann Massie

Lexington, VA, USA

Unbeatable Location!

This charmer is at the very northern tip of public access at Va. Beach (government-owned property is adjacent). The beach is wide and uncrowded. We could see dolphins cavorting in the waves during every morning walk. Convenient to everything you could need or want, and more finely furnisihed than are many beach cottages. All of us, including grandchildren (boy, 10; girl, 8) enjoyed touring the nearby lighthouse.

David Long

Edmonton, AB CAN

Perfect retreat

This is a wonderful, cozy cottage-like home at the peaceful north end of the beach (only 5 minutes drive to downtown). Full kitchen and barbecue eased our expenses though we visited the run down looking but great (and pretty inexpensive) eatery "Harpoon Larry's" for peel and eat shrimp and Rum Runners. We thoroughly enjoyed the short walk (about 100 meters) from the house through sand dunes to the beach and then walking for miles in pristine sand. We also enjoyed watching the dolphins rolling playfully over the waves each day and countless seabirds including the strange and entertaining pelicans.

perfect beach cottage

Comfortable and classic: this is a perfect beach front cottage. Excellent views, well-stocked kitchen, great screened-in porch. State park with hikin trails across the street. Highly recommended.


Morgantown, WV USA

family fun on vacation

The place was clean and in a good location. Virginia Beach is probabley one of the nicest family vacation site I have stayed at. The accomidations where very nice the pool coulc have used some upkeep and the hot tub did not have any hot or warm water. This is not the fault of the condo owner this I blame on the management of the building. Overall I very much enjoyed my stay and I can say my family made alot of wonderul memories.This is the first time I have ever looked on line to find a vacation rental.... I had a good experience...

Martha Faulkner

Owner's reply:

This review is not of my place #21137. I do not have a pool or a hot tub. There are only two condos in my building.

Cottage feel, unbeatable location

Lovely cottage with a wonderful view, located in the best part of VA Beach. We enjoyed easy walks to the beach on a brisk Thanksgiving weekend, after which we returned to a quaint setting with a nice layout. Perfect space for 6, plus baby. Thank you so much!

Betsy Mountcastle

West Piont, VA USA

Snug up and breathe in the view....

This is a wonderful ocean retreat that sings with intimacy and the sounds of the ocean through the flung open windows on a perfect October day. Our week was such a lovely, peaceful refuge and a chance to experience the beach as I remembered it as a child.

A VERY Special Place At The Beach

A charming, classic beach house in the finest spot on the beach! The proprietor was lovely to work with--extremely helpful and inviting. The house itself is very special and boasts a great view of the ocean, just past the dunes. A neighbor told us, "You have the best spot on the beach." We agreed. Watch commercial and naval vessels enter and leave Chesapeake Bay all day long. The beach, while public, was quiet, sparsely populated and clean. Overall, a fabulous vacation. We hope to return soon.

Dominic Gelinas

Quebec, Canada

Very easy to get to the beach.

We have 3 young children. It was very easy to go to the beach. Easy enough that we were going back to the house for lunch! This part of the beach is not as busy as where all the hotels are, another nice fact when having kids. Finally, we have been watching dolphins almost every day, sometime closer than 100 feet.

Ray Mehta

Bergenfield NJ USA


We were extremely happy with our accomodations. Rooms were clean and roomy. Beds were very comfortable. Everything about this place is great. We highly recommend it. Mehta family

Wonderful Family Time

We just spent 3 days in Virginia Beach in the nicest, coziest beach house! It was clean and bright and so comfortable for our family. The views are incredible and the location...perfect! Best ever time spent with my family!

Virginia Doty


Perfect Get-away

The views really are incredible, and the cottage is cozy, comfortable and welcoming. The location on the north end of VB is well away from the frey, but a very short drive to shops, restaurants and the movie theatre. The owner couldn't have been more helpful and our Christmas in the cottage was in the "best ever" category!



owner never replied!

i would have liked more info, even if it was booked or if my request didn't have enuf days, so i might consider in future...pls advise...thank you cmotta
