Description of the Virginia Beach vacation home rental



"The Contemporary Castle" is a spacious two-story contemporary-style oceanfront residence located just south of the Virginia Beach Boardwalk Resort District. The home has vaulted ceilings throughout giving it an open and airy atmosphere and with the addition of all new windows, the view of the ocean is spectacular!

You'll enjoy ten comfortable bedrooms including three master suites. The first floor master suite has an ensuite bathroom. The huge oceanside second-floor master suite has a private balcony overlooking the Atlantic as well as a private master bath.

From the spacious greatroom you have a "million dollar view of the Atlantic Ocean"...you can see forever! Relax on buttery-soft leather sofas and watch the Sony big screen television with DVD player or exit onto the 18' X 28' sundeck and watch the dolphins put on a show. Below, at dune level is a shade deck with hot/cold shower that leads directly to the lovely five-mile long beach ( a fifty to seventy-five foot walk the the ocean ).

Additional recreation is to be found in the enormous garage/gameroom...a very nice Valley billiard table, several large sofas and a big-screen television. As part of the new construction, the gameroom is now climate-controlled.

The newly remodeled kitchen boasts blue-pearl granite countertops and backsplash and a custom-made matching dining table. Also, there's a center work-island as well as a spacious pantry where all of the small appliances are stored. Adjacent is the newly enlarged diningroom that offers a southward view of the Atlantic. The room is highlighted by another custom made granite dining table and a striking contemporary chandelier.

Indeed, "The Contemporary Castle" is a residence that exudes warmth and character throughout...a place where you and your party can genuinely relax and enjoy a vacation experience that you'll long remember. In fact, there are many families who return to Sandbridge Beach year after year and have made it their yearly beach retreat. Truly, Virginia Beach offers so many activities for the entire family...you'll never get bored...

As an added feature, we can arrange in-house catering by a noted local restautrantuer, have party trays or a bushel of steamed crabs delivered to the house. After all, you're on vacation...why cook'


Area Information

Just a mile south of "The Contemporary Castle" is the Little Island Recreation Park built around an old Coast Guard Station and situated directly on the Atlantic. The park offers lighted tennis and basketball courts, a playground, covered picnic pavillions, snack bar, two new bath houses with showers, a newly remodeled fishing pier, and a lifeguard-protected beach. Also, there is a station where you can board an electric tram that will transport you to the adjacent Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. This 13,000 acre refuge surrounds the community of Sandbridge Beach and offers visitors to experience a wild coastal territory teeming with wildlife...swan, snow geese, Canadian geese, many species of ducks, deer, wild boar...even wild horses.

For the golfers, a one mile drive places you at the Hell's Point Golf Course, a highly ranked challenging course surrouned, too, by the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. And, within another 20 minutes are the Heron's Ridge Golf Course and the Virginia Beach City Golf Club.

Within a mile is the Seaside Market and two fine seafood restaurants, The Baja and Margie and Ray's. Additionally, Dana Blanton at Margie and Rays will provide in-house catering of any or all meals for our guests at "The Contemporary Castle" if you choose, or she'll be glad to deliver party trays for any occasion, or perhaps you'd like a bushel of steamed crabs...she aims to please.

A major shopping area is about three miles away providing every thing you may need...a 24 hour Walmart, Eckert Drug, Home Depot, Regal Theaters, Outback Steak, Golden Corral, Wendy's, Sonic, Red Robin, plus local favorites like The Tiki, Lucky Oyster, Atlas Diner and others.

A twenty minute drive places you at the Virginia Beach Resort District where all the major hotels line the Boardwalk area and there are numerous restaurants, bars and clubs that support the lively nightlife scene. Nearby is the Virginia Aquarium, Ocean Breeze Water Park ( with 13 slides and a million-gallon wave pool) is undergoing a major transformation after being purchased by two former execs of Six Flags, Rudee Inlet Sport Fishing Center and Marina as well as museums and other cultural activities.

An hour away is historic Williamsburg and Jamestown as well as Busch Gardens and Water Country USA. Obviously, your choice of activities is quite broad while visiting Sandbridge Beach...maybe that's why so many of our guests keep coming back year after year!

Stayed two years in a row

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.

Gorgeous view and deck

We had 25 family members for a reunion and had a blast. The house is very deceiving looking from the outside, but they pack in the bedrooms. The deck and family room are incredible! The second floor rooms on one side all share one full bath which makes it a bit busy, though there is another full bath open to all downstairs. Having only one oven made it a bit tougher fixing meals for 25 but we made it work. The walk to the beach is easy and the sand is wonderful. Overall, we had a terrific family vacation!

Delivered as Promised

It was a great place and very accurately described. the kitchen space and eating tables accommodate a lot of people. The house is nicely decorated and well-appointed. The bedrooms, especially the master, was very large. We're thinking of renting again next summer--4 couples and a kids room.

We had a great time!

We had a great time at the Contemporary Castle in VA Beach. The owner was exceptionally friendly and helpful. He immediately had a new grill delivered on our first day, when we called and said we planned to grill all week, and the grill at the property was well past prime. The views of the beach from the main room were fantastic. The house has lots of room for all of us. I highly recommend this property, and we loved the location of the house and Sandbridge Beach.
