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 gas 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.

An absolutely marvelous getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Situated in a quiet neighborhood north of the hub bub of Virginia Beach, we loved this vacation retreat. Jo's tastefully decorated home and beautifully manicured yard was a real treat. Located just a few minutes walk from the beach, you couldn't ask for anything more if you're interested in a relaxing vacation yet within minutes of the many restaurants and attractions the area offers. Very highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Wow, Thanks for such a great review. As first time renters, we really appreciate knowing everything was as you expected. We certainly hope this was the first of many visits. Remember the spring and fall are beautiful seasons to visit too. Also please remember to book early for a visit during peak season. We appreciate how beautiful you left the house for the next renters. Looking forward to your return. Jo and Chris

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

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, Jamestown, Richmond, Outer Banks of NC.

Other Activities: chilling on the deck
