About the property

5 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, sleeps 14

Private pool & cabana bar. Non-smoking/no pets. Weekly rental. Capture a memory luxuriating in this unforgettable beach home, with its stunningly unique, color-drenched Caribbean decor. Come enjoy a unique setting to relax and soak up the sun, cool off with a refreshing dip in the crystal waters of your own tropical private pool or create a special island drink at the poolside cabana bar. Your family and friends will enjoy exceptional furnishings, a very well equipped kitchen, and extraordinary amenities. Nestled in the exclusive Croatan community, and only four houses from an exhilarating swim in the Atlantic Ocean, this beautiful home is conveniently located just a few minutes away from the heart of downtown Virginia Beach less than a mile from the Boardwalk. There you can experience the many marvelous seaside attractions: the sights and sounds of the famous Boardwalk and everything else that has made this one of the most popular resort towns on the East Coast. This remarkable home has so much to offer. For $300 & week's notice the pool can be heated.

Never settle for less! Exceptionally well equipped eat-in kitchen (table for 8) with many small appliances, gas & electric ovens to whip up a special meal, or if you want to dine out, savor a variety of casual fine dining experiences at unique local restaurants; or catch your own dinner -- go fishing in the surf on your own beach, from a fishing pier, or from one of the deep-sea charter boats. Golfers have a choice of 12 courses, and miniature golf courses abound for the kids. For the fitness enthusiast, go jogging or bicycling along the Boardwalk or try the exciting water sports -- jet skiing, parasailing, etc. Explore a wildlife sanctuary or take an eco kayaking tour. Sit back and relax while enjoying a sightseeing or dolphin/whale watching cruise. Hop in the car and within an hour you can see history brought to life at Colonial Williamsburg, sample exciting rides at Busch Gardens or Water Country USA, or go outlet shopping at the famous Pottery Factory.

OR, simply enjoy ocean side living at your beach house: swimming/playing/sunbathing/relaxing in your private tropical pool, sipping a beverage at your poolside cabana bar, having cookouts, picnics, family gatherings and playing games. And there's always the beach for swimming, surfing, walking, shelling, building sand castles, sunbathing, and bird, dolphin or people watching.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house was more than we expected! It is well equipped and beautiful. Thank you. Our kids did not want to leave because we don't have a pool at home. We had a great time. The cleaning lady & the pool man were very nice people. We will be back again.

A True Caribbean Fantasy!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was without a doubt the nicest, well equipped home my family has used for vacationing. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything one would need for putting on a large dinner including matching dishes and silverware. The owner has provided thoughtful signs throughout the house that aid in making your stay easier. The house was spotless with plenty of space for entertaining with two decks on the house. The master bedroom and bathroom are what dreams are made of, simply beautiful! The pool area and cabana bar are the center of your vacation dreams making it hard to leave and travel the 3 minute walk to the ocean. Yvonnne, the owner, went out of her way by calling and making herself available if any problems needed addressed. I would not hesitate to stay here again and my family would second that thought. If you are new to VB I would recommend Waterman's on the boardwalk for a fabulous dining experience.

fabulous pool area, very well-equipped kitchen

  • 4 of 5

Walk to beach very doable, but no view of ocean from house. Lots of nice bikes, boards, beach toys. Nice enclosed outdoor shower. Two grills. Lots of night lights which was a wonderful surprise. Very nice and quiet neighborhood for walks/bike rides. Very close to aquarium and motor world/ocean breeze water park. Beach is wonderful. Owner very attentive.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for several years and have greatly enjoyed our time in the beautiful beach property. The house and pool area have always been ready and spotless when we arrived. The owner is amazing, and made everything about the setup, stay, and even this survey simple. I highly recommend staying at this beautiful home.

We brought our large family, ate many meals in and felt the kitchen was stocked to accommodate cooking. Stores are close by, and the owner listed locations of places to shop, fun things to do , etc.

We will be returning!!!!!! We give it many stars⭐️, and many thumbs up👍𣐮 We love Caribbean Fantasy.

Great Caribbean Fantasy in VB

  • 5 of 5

Caribbean Fantasy is fabulous. We stayed here 3 years ago and loved it and the owner made many improvements. New pool furniture, nice bicycles, plenty of dishes, pots,pans, storage containers, ETC. Updated baby playpen, high chair, stroller and brand new gas grill. The owner is compassionate and took time to give us a personal call to make sure that our stay was exceptional. It was and this home is a great value with so many perks.

My family recently had the fun and pleasure to be guests in your amazing home the week of August 15th through the 22nd. Your home, definitely much more than just a house, was the perfect place to spend family time. You truly have thought of everything!!! It was fun and relaxing, and each one of us enjoyed every moment!

Thank you for providing everything we could possibly need in such an enjoyable atmosphere. Each one of us appreciated the care and cleanliness that you have taken, and your decorations were perfect!!!

Thank you so much.

Everything You Could Possibly Want

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home after a week with 15 family members at “A Caribbean Fantasy” in Virginia Beach. This home is exceptional providing tons of room, inviting atmosphere, well maintained and in a great location! It’s obvious the owner wants to ensure families have a carefree vacation providing everything you could possibly need or want. Atkinson Realty was friendly and helpful.

We had a week filled with laughter, fun and wonderful memories! Pray we can do it again! This home deserves 5 stars PLUS!
