About Jo Corso

We are retired teachers from Virginia Beach Schools. Jo, art teacher, Chris, shop teacher. We built a home in the outer banks where we spend our summers.

Jo Corso purchased this cottage in 1988

Why Jo Corso chose Virginia Beach

Best neighborhood in Va. Beach for easy access to beach and no jet noise. Great, quaint beach bungalo.

What makes this cottage unique

Lots of charm and character in our renovated home. We have added many features to make it a comfortable home to enjoy year round. Unusually well stocked kitchen for gourmet cooks with terrific covered outdoor grill for cooking rain or shine.

Very old live oak trees in back yard give wonderful shade. Big deck with table for alfresco eating for the family. Verified by many of the wonderful reviews from former visitors.

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Corso cottage was great. My 6 year old loved being able to ride her bike to the beach everyday. And she loved getting rinsed off in the outdoor shower. And there is so much to do close by. And the owners are wonderful they make you feel right at home.

Well Maintained, Clean and Close to Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had such a relaxing week reading books on the porch, biking all around the parks and biking roads, enjoying picnic dinners on the beach at sunset and swimming in the waves. Jo and Chris' home was like vacationing in an art gallery, beach cottage and well cared for home all rolled up in one. They have thought of everything... bikes, beach items, great outdoor shower, etc. We look forward to coming back next year. Thanks for everything Jo!

Great Beach Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at the beach and had a great time at this cottage. It is a short walk to the beach, which is wide and clean. The cottage is cute as can be and the owner was readily available to answer a couple of questions we had upon arrival. I loved the sun porch for morning yoga and the back deck is shady for afternoon reading. The location is perfect for getting away from the beach crowds but close enough for grabbing a bite to eat. Make sure you try Citrus and Bay Local for breakfast. And, the outdoor shower makes you feel like a kid again. Our only issue is that we did not stay for two weeks. Next time we will stay longer!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. I received an email from them a few days ago appreciating the quick return of their security deposit. Hopefully next year they will book early to get the two weeks the want. We are happy to have another rental experience with 5star renters. They are always welcome. Jo

Lovely. Perfect. Enjoyable for all.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids) loved our stay at the Corso cottage this summer. The place was beyond our expectations and lovely in every way. We traveled to VB from out of town, so we had nothing but our luggage---and the house had everything that we needed and more. The kitchen is spacious and fantastic. The outdoor grill is a griller's dream. The rooms are spacious and the amenities are abundant. We have rented VRBO homes for many years and this was one of our top stays, if not the top. The location was more than perfect with such a short stroll away from the most perfect part of Virginia Beach. We felt right at home the moment we walked in and left the home feeling like we couldn't wait to be back. Thank you Jo for the wonderful communication and the delightful stay in your cottage. We can't wait to return to enjoy morning coffee and our evening beverage on the perfectly laid out deck. You were wonderful and your house was ideal. I highly recommend this house for anyone looking to explore Virginia Beach.

Owner's Response: WOW, it is so exciting to be at the top of your VRBO scale after so many years of using VRBO for your vacations. Thanks for the terrific review. We appreciate your time and effort. I know you traveled across country to come here and am pleased that you were so happy with everything.. It feels good to provide our renters with security when booking. I am sure your review will certainly make a difference. Please come back often. Book early to get the exact week you want. Jo and Chris

This is in a quiet residential area. It takes about 2 and 1/2 minutes to walk to the beach and 1 minute walk, west to state park to hike sand dunes. This is the best, widest beach in VA. Beach. There is NO JET NOISE or military noise in the neighborhood. Sit on the beach and watch dolphins close enough to touch.There are lots of military ships (aircraft carriers), commercial freighters, and cruise ships to watch. The boardwalk is 2 1/2 miles south, where there is a lot of action packed, summer fun. Hundreds of top quality restaurants nearby. We have 4 great bikes, beach cart, chairs,umbrellas and boogie boards. 20 blocks south, 64th st, is the beautiful State Park with miles of bike and hiking paths. This is the place to relax and just enjoy nature or go full blast with resort beach activities. Rent jet skis, go deep sea fishing out on headboats, parasail, check out city of Virginia Beach web sites to see all the listings for fun and current events. Easy day trips to Williamsburg

Other Activities: chilling on the deck
