Description of the Virginia Beach vacation home rental
This home is just two short blocks to the oceanfront. 3,000+ square feet of luxury living awaits you in this two level executive home on beautiful Lake Christine. The best of both worlds -- ocean and lakefront. Water views from nearly every room.

This home was newly renovated in Spring of 2011 with all new furnishings, small appliances, bedding, linens, dishes, pots & pans, and cutlery. Unlike most beach homes in Southern Virginia and Nags Head, our prices include linens, set up, customary exit cleaning service, and laundering of sheets, towels, and linens. Just bring yourselves and life preservers for small children.

There is a huge deck with granite top table, quality deck furniture as comfortable as your living room, furnished gazebo and gas grill. Hot and cold exterior shower for removing beach sand.

The spacious rooms and large deck/gazebo are ideal for family reunions, gatherings and retirements. Children love paddle boating and fishing on the lake from a small private dock. There is both ocean and lake fishing. Two bikes, paddleboat, fishing poles, crab nets and crab traps, horseshoes, croquet, and badminton games are provided. There is a Beach Buggy to move small children, beach umbrellas, chairs, snacks, and fishing equipment to the beach. Bring or rent a surfboard, kayak, or canoe. Send the kids to the three-day neighborhood Surfing Camp. There are only a few rental homes in this year-round residential neighborhood.

Within Croatan Beach, the oceanfront has a dedicated area for surfing at one end of the beach and at the very opposite end of the beach, there are lifeguards and other city services such as playground, bathrooms, and paved parking lot at the dunes. In between, the beach is never crowded as it is surrounded by private residences and very limited street parking. Croatan is a very low traffic area.

There is just so much to do nearby in addition to sunbathing on sugary white sand--surfing, beach fishing/crabbing and biking in the immediate area. Croatan is 'walking distance' to the boardwalk (public resort area), lots of really good seafood restaurants, deep sea fishing, shopping, Virginia Aquarium, whale/porpoise watching boats, Auto World bumper/racing cars, child-size Water Park, Miniature Golf, boardwalk rental bikes (individual, tandem and family surrey bikes).

At Rudees Inlet, there are party fishing boats and private charter deep sea fishing, jet skis, and wind surfing. All this within 5 blocks North or South. There is a free city trolley for transportation all around town and to the tourist sites and shopping centers. The City of Virginia Beach has fireworks on Wednesday and Sunday nights, live music and entertainment on the boardwalk about every 5 blocks, and ever changing festivals. Kids and adults love to ride bikes on the Boardwalk. Busch Gardens, Williamsburg, historic Yorktown and Jamestown, Norfolk Waterfront with its ships museum, Navy Base carrier tours, and Chrysler Museum are all within an hour away. Nags Head, the Wright Brothers Flight Museum, and Coralla wild horses are 75 minutes away. There is just too... much to do for a week or even a month.

Don't miss the Holiday Lights at the Beach display from November to January 1, 2014!!

See animated nautical and holiday-themed light displays along the boardwalk. 25 blocks of festive fish, jumping dolphins, and frolicking porpoises, sailboats gently rocking in the wind, and mermaids! Add to this surfing Santa's, giant gift-wrapped packages, and a three-story Christmas tree. There are more huge lighting displays than you can imagine, and you get to drive on the boardwalk, which is very cool.

The house has four (4) TVs and DVDs, Wii games (Mario kart and resort sports & bring some of your own), movies, and board/card games for rainy days. For the techie types, there is DSL, Wifi, and an MFC fax/scan/copier/printer.

This is a great house and a great location. Large, bright, airy rooms, beautiful kitchen, fully equipped, beautiful deck, lovely lake view. Only a 3 minute walk to the beach. We had 10 people, from 7 to 70 and everyone had a great time. The owner is a joy to work with.

House is located in the most beautiful setting. The house itself was very large and perfect for all of my family. We had perfect weather the entire week. The ocean beach seemed very private and that made our vacation even more enjoyable. Lots of barbequing and also dining out at some amazing restaurants. Lots of good shopping down by the main beaches and walkway. Wonderful vacation and would do it again. Virginia Beach is a wonderful place to go for families.
