Private pool & cabana bar. N0 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.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

An incredible home....so beautiful, so convenient to the beach and surrounding area and so comfy! The pool area is fantastic! We spent most of our time relaxing there! I was really impressed with all the little extra touches like the night lights! For our first time to VA Beach and our first time using VRBO, Yvonne made the experience marvelous!!

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

A Caribbean Fantasy was fantastic! We couldn't have asked for a better week of sun and relaxation. The duBuy's home was well equipped and furnished for our blended family. The pool area was to die-for and provided a true resort experience - Cabana bar was a fun feature. Highly recommend!

Wonderful home for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home for a family get together. Everyone had their own space and plenty of activities to suit the whole family. The home was very clean, and Yvonne's out reach throughout the vacation was greatly appreciated. We look forward to returning in the future

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.

Owner's Response: We had explained under "Ocean View" that "Pieces of the ocean can be viewed in between houses in front," but you had to click on the tab in order to see the description so have deleted the reference to "Ocean View" altogether.
