Here is some Vacation Home Area Entertainment Information for Our Guests:

You are in the wonderful North End of the Virginia Beach Resort Area when you stay at this vacation home. This is the sought after area for vacation and other home stays near the beach, dining, entertainment and shopping.

You will be only a block from the ocean when staying with us. Access the surf and sandy beach by crossing Atlantic Ave to the beach path (located to the right of a hotel). We frequently see dolphins at this beach, particularly in the morning and just before sunset. For those days you would like to snack at the beach there is a full service restaurant and bar at the hotel next to our beach entrance, There is an excellent deli and gourmet food/wine shop a short distance away. A spa is nearby.

There is a biking and walking path from the vacation home to the boardwalk. You may, also, walk to the boardwalk by walking on the beach. A big benefit of staying with us is that if you do not plan to walk or bike to the boardwalk, you may park up to 3 cars at the vacation home and cross Atlantic Avenue from 56th ST (a half block away) to catch a ride on the Virginia Beach city WAVE bus to other areas of the Virginia Beach Resort.

In the Summer months, you may enjoy free strolling entertainers on and near the boardwalk. Off-season you may find horseback riding on the beach and other amusements available.

There are often free or low cost music performances and special events at boardwalk locations at and also near Neptune’s statue on the beach at 31st ST.

The Virginia Beach Conference Center has frequent meeting, conference and entertainment opportunities.

You can bike, hike and boat at the First Landing State Park, which is only about four blocks North of the vacation home.

You can fish locally from the beach about half a block away, or at a pier, or with a rental fishing boat.

A short few blocks to the North of the vacation home, you may enjoy visiting the Edgar Cayce Center for massage therapy.

Other nearby entertainment includes the new children’s beach park at 1st Street next to the boardwalk, the Water Park, the Virginia Beach Marine Museum, and the Norfolk Zoo and Botanical Gardens.

The boardwalk area is about a 10 min walk along the beach or bike path - or 5 min beach bike or vehicle ride from the home. The convention center and alot of shopping is about an 8 minute drive. There is a restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating at the hotel across 56th ST. It is a great place to watch dolphins and the kids playing in the surf and sand. The Norfolk, Oceana, Dam Neck, Little Creek Navy / military bases are within 15 to 30 minutes drive. This home has the best location for vacations and temporary lodging!

Be sure to check out the Atlantic Ocean beach, bike trail, all the local golf courses, the great music venues nearby including the Verizon Wireless venue, the Busch Gardens amusement park and local water park and amusement parks, local museums, science center, and the nearby historic attractions. Williamsburg, Busch Gardens and Yorktown historic sites and amusement parks are only a bit over an hour away!

You'll like the very soothing Laz-Y-Boy furniture in the family room, warm decor and the original artwork.

The home was updated in 2016 with stainless appliances, granite counters and new bath tile. It has gleaming white oak hardwood flooring on the main living level (Kitchen/DR/LR/Powder Room), and has neutral carpet and tile in other areas. Both of the large covered decks/porches - that you can see (in the photo of the building exterior) belong to this home and have comfortable seating.

There is off-street parking for up to three vehicles (parking like this for several vehicles is hard to find in resort areas of Virginia Beach, so the parking area is a Real Plus for our guests!).

The home is very spacious with high ceilings in the family room. All of the 3 bedrooms are large in this home! A King size bed, 2 Queen beds (One of the 2 Queens is a beautiful sleigh bed in a room with a beautiful tropical 'surf' decor - and the other Queen bed is of tropical bamboo in a 'Key West' bedroom) Additionally, 4 twin beds are in the home (a trundle bed in the 2nd floor Queen suite and 2 adult foldup beds).

The master bedroom suite has a granite countertop, jetted tub / spa tub and a shower.

Enjoy the lovely hardwood floors in the 3rd floor living room, dining area, powder room and the kitchen. Luxuriate in the bamboo 'Key West' style furniture in the first floor bedroom, and enjoy the other beautiful furniture in the other rooms.

All three bedrooms are beautifully furnished and EACH HAS A Flat Screen CABLE TV. The King master bedroom, a Queen BR and the family room each have DVD players. Each of the 3 bedrooms has a closet and a lovely armoire or dresser for additional storage.

About Cat

Hello - Getting away to this fantastic, very comfortable big vacation home is a great treat! Have a wonderful vacation at this fun and relaxing home!

Cat purchased this townhome in 2002

Why Cat chose Virginia Beach

This spacious oceanfront townhome is a very short walk (a minute or two!) to the ocean in the sought after North End of Virginia Beach Resort area - and is close to all the resort attractions and the convention center and military bases. Also, I really like the 2 covered porches facing the backyard of the home - with the tall, leafy tree making each of the two porches feel like a private tree house.

On-Site Parking for 3 cars! Park behind the home in partially fenced area.

Ask me about the great deli a few minutes from us - sandwiches, desserts, soda and wine are a few of this favorite deli's attractions for good food and beverages.

What makes this townhome unique

Walk to beach and boardwalk. The townhome has WIFI, a spa tub in the MBA, has lots of light, is roomy, fun and very relaxing - especially the laz-y-boy leather couch and 3 laz-y-boy recliners (great for afternoon naps!).

Big rooms with over 2100 sq ft of living space. Great Room with vaulted ceiling.

Flat screen TVs with cable and BLU RAY.

There is room for 3 vehicles to park behind the home/private parking area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As time goes on, it is harder to get everybody in the same place at the same time - and we all had a ball!

Close to beach

  • 4 of 5

We really liked the proximity to the beach! Very easy walk and not as busy as the boardwalk area. Also, it was nice to have the beach chairs provided!

Beautiful, Spacious, and Wonderfully Located

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't serve this home is beautiful and very spacious. The home is full of amenities and located near perfect beaches and convenient to local attractions; Cat had a booklet of recommended eateries and Docs was by far the best breakfast I have had in a while. The neighborhood was quiet and the neighbors polite. Upon our arrival, the home was very clean, tastefully decorated, and had all of the things we needed for our family get together. The layout was nice and we spent a lot of time on the outside balcony and in the spacious kitchen. Cat responded quickly to pre-travel questions and made sure that we arrived to have a great, worry-free time. We would definitely look forward to staying at this property again in the future.

Very well maintained property convenient to beach and other activities

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice time here...the bedrooms were spacious enough and 3 1/2 bathrooms really came in handy with 6 adults and visitors coming by (we were down for a wedding with lots of family in VA beach for the week).

The place was very clean for the most part and had many conveniences in the kitchen/dining areas...the showers and bathrooms all worked great...the A/C was nice and cold....outside shower is a great convenience...very private decks....

The washer & dryer were definitely helpful as well.

We were north of the boardwalk by a few miles, but this worked out great because our beach ( only two short blocks to walk!) was the BEST!!! It was clean, not too crowded and we were in a lifeguarded area because of the hotel right there...good peace of mind.

It was very easy to get to the boardwalk and shopping....lots of entertainment at night on the main streets downtown courtesy of the VA beach community.

We rented paddle boards for a very affordable rate and had a blast learning a new sport!

I suggest finding the closest Food Lion for groceries...the other one might be closer (Teeter's), but MUCH more expensive.

I also suggest getting steamed crabs locally...there are a few places, but you need to call ahead of time...they were VERY good!!

This was our first trip to VA beach and we definitely want to return!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and very clean. We had a wonderful time here. It is in a great location, very close to the ocean. It was really nice being in a more secluded area! The neighborhood is very nice and the neighbors are very friendly. A few of them said hello to us as we were making our way to the beach. So much nicer then staying in a hotel. Will definitely go back on our next trip to Virginia Beach. Thank you for such a wonderful stay.

Wonderful girls getaway

  • 5 of 5

Such a memorable stay. My friend and I were lucky enough to be at the Beach when Winter Storm Jonas came through and it was my first time seeing snow on the beach. Cathy, the owner was so easy to work with, she was able to extend our stay a few extra days so we didn't have to move to a hotel & the beach house was one of the nicest homes I've stayed in. Very comfortable, clean,efficient and close to many things. Even in the winter months. I'd love to go back in the summer and I would definitely stay here again. I highly recommend this home to others.
