Overview

Tidewater & Hampton Roads Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condominium (Unit A-425), 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

We named our condominium 'Turtles Return' because the sea turtles return each year to lay eggs on this beautiful stretch of beach. Once you have enjoyed the comfort and amenities of this beach condominium in The Sanctuary at False Cape, you will want to return too.

Turtles Return is on the beach, but overlooks the gorgeous pool and courtyard. It does not have an ocean view from the condo.

Turtles Return offers one of the best values at the beach with fantastic rates. We provide linens, towels, end of week cleaning, high speed internet access, and long distance calls in the US for no charge to our guests.

Turtles Return is bright and open with an inviting floor plan of over 1400 square feet of living space. Turtles Return includes two bedrooms and two full baths, a large great room, dining room, gourmet kitchen, spacious balcony, a full sized washer and dryer, two designated garage parking spaces, and a garage storage closet for beach and pool supplies, all in a luxury resort setting - three pools (one with swim up bar and restaurant), hot tub, gorgeous complex.

Turtles Return can accommodate up to 6 guests and is perfect for family fun or a romantic getaway. Turtles Return is elegant, yet packed with excitement for the children. Turtles Return offers more privacy than most homes in The Sanctuary as you are on the top floor with no units above you and none right next to you, lots of windows and sun light.

Turtles Return is professionally decorated with original art work displayed throughout. All furniture and beds are new and are so comfortable that you may want to spend the entire day inside. The home is stocked with a small library of books, board games, Legos, cards, Blu-ray’s, DVD’s, and CD’s. The great room has a large flat panel TV with surround sound, cable TV, a Blu-ray, DVD, CD player, and a stereo.

Each bedroom has a TV with cable and a Blu-ray/DVD player. All TV’s will accommodate Play Station, Xbox, and Wii games. We invite you to use the items in our ground level storage closet, which is loaded with beach chairs, beach umbrellas, boogie boards, bikes, fishing gear, a cooler, and beach toys. The storage closet is big enough for you to store and lock up personal items that you want to have near the beach and pools.

Turtles Return also owns an investor membership at Hell's Point golf course which saves our guests money and provides special golf privileges.

Great Room/Dining Room: The huge great room is open to the dining room and kitchen. The great room has a large flat panel TV with surround sound, cable TV, a Blu-ray, DVD, and CD player, and a stereo. There is free phone and high speed internet access in the great room area and the phone system allows free long distance calls in the US. The great room is very bright with two big windows that face south and two sliding glass doors that open to the balcony facing west. The windows are covered with wood blinds and curtains and the sliding doors are covered with velvet curtains. The great room is furnished with two inviting reclining chairs, two couches (one can be used as a very comfortable double bed), a gorgeous ottoman that matches the reclining chairs, beautiful lamps and side tables, and a ceiling fan. The solid maple dining table has chairs for six people. The dining table is centered on a colorful oriental rug.

Kitchen: The gourmet kitchen has cherry cabinets, granite counters, and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen is open to the dining room and great room, with views out to the balcony. The kitchen is equipped with top of the line Kitchen Aid and Cuisinart products, including the gourmet coffee maker, baking equipment, toaster, toaster oven, and blender. The spice cabinet includes a nice variety of spices for your use. The kitchen has plenty of counter space and a large pantry.

Balcony: The spacious balcony overlooks the gorgeous pool, hot tub, and landscaped courtyard. The wicker balcony furniture also has a West Indies feel and consists of 4 chairs, a dining table, and 2 small tables for you to enjoy your morning coffee or an evening drink and dinner while you watch the sun set. The courtyard has many built-in professional grade Viking grills for your use and many tables and chairs for you to enjoy a meal by the pool. The pool and courtyard are lit at night to create a pleasant view from your balcony.

Master Bedroom and Bathroom: The master bedroom is large and has a walk-in closet. The queen mahogany bed and night stand, mango wood dresser, tropical lamps, and ceiling fan give the bedroom a West Indies style. The mattress and pillows are top of the line. The master bedroom includes a TV with cable and a Blu-ray/DVD player, and a very comfortable upholstered swivel rocker for you to relax and enjoy a book or a movie. The bedroom window is covered with wood blinds and a curtain for complete privacy. The master bathroom is also large and has beautiful maple cabinets, a granite counter top, tile floors, and is decorated in simple elegance.

Second Bedroom and Bathroom: The second bedroom has a large closet and built in book shelves. The bunk bed system is perfect for adults or children and includes a full bed on the bottom and a twin bed on the top, both with top of the line mattresses and pillows. The night stand and dresser are a fresh “beachy” white. The room includes a TV with cable and a Blu-ray/DVD player, and a very comfortable upholstered swivel rocker for you to relax and enjoy a book or a movie. The bedroom window is covered with wood blinds for complete privacy. The second bathroom is accessed from the hallway just outside the second bedroom and has beautiful maple cabinets, a granite counter top, and tile flooring. This bathroom is decorated in a beach / surfing theme.

About Mike Cravotta

Our family loves the mountains, the water, and the outdoors. We moved to Virginia Beach from Colorado and enjoy all the beautiful waterways in Virginia Beach. Virginia Beach is a fantastic place to raise a family as there is no end to the family friendly activities – we feel like we are on vacation all the time.

Mike Cravotta purchased this condo in 2006

Why Mike Cravotta chose Tidewater & Hampton Roads

We enjoy going to the beach and the convenience of having a property that sits right on the sand. Turtles Return is located in the Sanctuary at False Cape which is one of the premier condo complexes on the east coast. We have three pools (one with swim up bar and restaurant), a hot tub, two state-of-the art workout facilities, a game room, and much more - all in a luxury complex. We have a resort feel without being large and commercial. We are located on one of the prettiest beaches on the east coast. To the south and east there is no development - simply beach, water, and nature.

What makes this condo unique

Turtles Return is bright and open with an inviting floor plan of over 1400 square feet of living space. Turtles Return is elegant, yet packed with excitement for the children. Turtles Return includes two bedrooms and two full baths, a large great room, dining room, gourmet kitchen, spacious balcony, a full sized washer and dryer, two designated garage parking spaces, and a garage storage closet (which is loaded with beach chairs, beach umbrellas, boogie boards, bike's, fishing gear, a cooler, and beach toys, yet big enough for you to store and lock up personal items that you want to have near the beach and pools). We also provide linens, towels, end of week cleaning, high speed internet access, and long distance calls in the US for no charge to our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family has stayed in many condos around the country – Turtles Return is the nicest one we have ever visited. We appreciate the quality and comfort of this property. We went fishing off the beach and pier, hiked, biked, golfed, explored the area, and relaxed. Turtles return and so will we.

Long Term Stay

  • 5 of 5

Turtles Return was absolutely more than I expected. There were no other condos above or even next door to this one. The only neighbors were below. It was well decorated, had kitchen gadgets and dishes galore. There were many entertainment options including books, board games, movies, and multiple TVs and DVD players to let families enjoy their time. The bikes and beach supplies were a wonderful surprise and even though I only used once, they were great to have.

The owner is absolutely wonderful and if there's something missing or something just not right, he will make sure to make it right to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

This condo is right by the beach and near the national parks. It's very private and close and not full of tourists since it's a local vacation spot.

I'd recommend getting groceries as restaurant options are limited. There is a restaurant across the street and some food options on site during the summer months but if you like variety, groceries are the best bet. And with the big kitchen, it makes cooking very easy.

I was not able to use the pool or hot tub but the pool looks marvelous. There are multiple pools on the property so it allows for options and one even has a swim up bar. There are also some BBQ grills and large patio seating areas near the pool. This condo has a great view of the pool from the large balcony and all the living room windows.

I would stay here again.

Happy Return

  • 5 of 5

Turtles Return is a gem. This was our second stay. Our first was two years ago. We were concerned that the condo may show wear and tear; however, it still looks new and fresh. The owners have clearly taken pride in this condo. Turtles Return is on our favorite beach in Virginia – it boarders state and national parks, so you have complete privacy and nature to the south – not a single house. In fact, there are no hotels in this area, so it is very quiet, yet close to restaurants and entertainment. The condo does not have an ocean view, however, we really enjoy the large balcony overlooking the pool and courtyard – the sunsets are fantastic. If the weather is not good you can watch one of the 100+ movies, read one of the great books, or play some of the games that are in the condo. Overall, we think Turtles Return is fantastic and we plan to return for a third visit.

Great get away

  • 5 of 5

We have never stayed this far south of Virginia beach before but would highly recommend this location. The condo was beautiful and fully stocked with appliances ready to cook. Comfortable beds and quiet in the evening. We were also able to bicycle around and at False Cape park. Look forward to renting again!

Wonderful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently vacationed at "Turtles Return" and we had a lovely time. The condo was beautiful and perfect for kids. We have 2 little ones, so the added bonus of a high chair and pack-n-play was great. The furniture and all décor was comfortable and inviting and the kitchen was stocked with the needed utensils, etc. We would definitely return to this condo one day.

The summer of 2013 was completely booked by spring, so please rebook early to get the week you want for the summer of 2014. We have replaced the carpet and mattresses, repainted, and professionally cleaned all the furniture – Turtles Return looks new and is ready for guests.
