All the five star reviews on this cottage caught my attention, and it did not disappoint! This lovely cottage was perfect for our small family with two young teenagers. With a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, a very nice outdoor shower, and beach gear to boot, it had everything we could need or want, and all in beautiful condition. The entire week was a joy - our days started with relaxing breakfasts on the deck, and then to the beach to enjoy the wonderful water. This cottage was by far the nicest rental I have ever stayed in (of course it isn't just a rental - it's the owner's home!) There was a gift basket on the table when we arrived, which was a sweet and welcoming touch. And before I forget - there was a fig tree in the back yard with delicious figs! This house is located at the north end of Virginia Beach, so traffic on Atlantic is extremely light and crossing is no problem what so ever. In my opinion, the north end of Virginia Beach is where you want to stay. It's a short drive to shopping, restaurants, and the boardwalk. I could go on and on about how much we enjoyed our stay!!! Thank you for a wonderful week!
