Overview

Virginia Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Single family home, 5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 7 Night Minimum, 9 persons Maximum

6910 Ocean Front Avenue, located in the exclusive residential area known as North End Virginia Beach, is the ideal spot for your summer beach vacation. The house has direct access to the beach and is as close to the ocean and dune line as zoning permits. The entrance to First Landing State Park is 1/2 mile from the house and the Virginia Beach Boardwalk and Resort Strip with all its activities is 2 miles away. If you don't feel like driving, it's a safe walk or bike ride to all of these using the access road that parallels Atlantic Avenue. The Virginia Beach Aquarium and Adventure Park and Ocean Breeze Water Park are all within 6 miles. Busch Gardens, Water Country and historic Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown are an hour away.

This home is rented by the week only from Sunday to Sunday.

The home sleeps Nine Persons in five bedrooms with one king bed, one queen bed, and five twin beds.

70th Street terminates at the beach so we have the privacy of no through traffic and a handicap ramp that makes access to the ocean--about 100 yards from the house--quick and easy!

This property offers the unique amenities of a covered outdoor shower house with hot & cold water & changing area, beach chairs & umbrellas plus our private adjacent sand dune and green area where we have space for additional guest parking - truly a hot commodity at the beach!

This home has been owned by the same family since 1958, and has been continually upgraded to create a relaxed and old fashioned Tidewater environment with 21st century services like high-speed wireless internet and satellite TV with flat screen televisions in the family room and King bedroom.

Two oceanfront sun porches provide private getaways from the main family room and dining area. A screen porch off the kitchen with old-style swing, sofa, and wooden table with benches is wonderful for outdoor cocktails and dining at sunset.

The second floor sun deck with lounge chairs & tables overlooks the ocean and is perfectly positioned to catch the sea breezes.

About The Owner

Our father bought this home and vacant lot in 1958 and it is a magical place. We spent every Summer here while growing up. The privacy afforded by the lot makes you feel like you're far removed from the hustle & bustle, but the shopping, dining, and fun of the Virginia Beach resort area is just minutes away!

The Owner purchased this house in 1958

Why The Owner chose Virginia Beach

Virginia Beach has the most beautiful wide sandy beach in the mid-Atlantic, with super amenities like concerts, movies, fireworks, and great restaurants. You can sit outside on the upper sun deck or inside in the AC on the ocean front porch and watch the submarines, aircraft carriers, and container ships traveling in and out of Hampton Roads harbor.

What makes this house unique

It is truly wonderful to wake up in the morning and simply walk a few hundred feet to the ocean for that first swim of the day! Then set up your beach camp with chairs and umbrellas for a relaxing day at the beach just steps from your kitchen, bathrooms, and shower.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a treat this place is--a haven, an escape, a respite from the crazy world out there. You have done a masterful job stocking and equipping the house, thinking of every possible necessity! Our grandchildren became expert boogie boarders over the past six days and were enthralled by the local wildlife--dolphins, pelicans, even a fox! We had a grand time and thank you for your hospitality.

Vacation Bliss

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have rented this house for the last four years. Each year when we walk into the house we all think "we're home". We Love the authenticity of a real cottage on the ocean. It never matters whether it's sunny or raining this house provide you with the most spectacular views of the ocean from the ocean facing sunroom or from the outdoor deck. In addition the house is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need during your stay. This vacation home and our stay in Virginia Beach is the highlight of our summer and what we look forward to during the cold winters of New Hampshire.

Perfect quiet and room for family

  • 5 of 5

This lovely, quiet, traditional beach home was just what we needed. When we had a few extra family show up, there was plenty of room for sleeping them with us. The views from the front sunroom and the outside rear deck are spectacular, in fact, I slept one night on the outside deck in the full moon! Heavenly. Lovely porch screen on the screened porch where we took most of our meals. The house is clean, well outfitted, and the owners are a dream to work with.

Quintessential Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Our first time ever in Virginia Beach. We wanted a beach house that was comfortable, quiet and roomy enough for three generations of our family. We got that and so much more. A perfect little "nook" for our two-year old grandson, an outdoor shower to rinse him off after a day on the beach, a private yard perfect for "corn hole" tournaments, distinctly different porches for spreading out during the day, a beautifully-appointed and well-stocked kitchen, ample beach chairs and beach toys, puzzles and games for all ages and easy access to a very wide and beautiful beach. The owners of this home clearly love the beach and have managed to preserve the charm of this older property while keeping it updated for modern conveniences. We loved watching the ship traffic through binoculars from the upstairs sun room, morning breakfasts on the back screened porch (very cool and breezy), and the large living area for congregating throughout the day and evening. Local restaurants were fabulous. So many options to choose from and all very, very good. Close enough to the "strip" of Virginia Beach if you want to experience that part of town but easily far enough away to have a very secluded and quiet stay. The next time we go to Virginia Beach, we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.

Owner's Response: Oh my goodness, thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed and complimentary review. For us, extended family beach time memories are truly special so we have a soft spot in our hearts for the three-generation families who stay in our home. It’s very important that all of our guests feel “at home” in our home and we are so pleased that this was your experience when you stayed with us in August. You were lovely guests and we would be delighted to have you stay with us again. Sincerely~AH

Lovely cottage home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this home this past summer. Lovely cottage style house, very comfortable. House was clean, decorated beautifully and well equipped. We spent a great deal of time on the screened in porch or upstairs in the Florida room facing the ocean off the master bedroom. Very quiet and peaceful. Easy beach access which came in handy for my husband who has walking issues. Would definitely rent this house again.

Perfect in every detail.

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to stay here for years. It has none of the shiny, flashy, cheap appeal that many beach houses strive to flaunt. Instead it's all about comfort, homeliness, friendliness, and sheer delight. Every detail has been meticulously thought through, from the graduated cutting boards to the little hooks that will hold back the cords of the blinds; absolutely everything is clean, workable, and thoughtfully provided so as to maximize the joy and comfort of guests. My favorite spaces are the porches: two of them glassed in, on ground floor and upper floor levels, and one of them screened, where you can gently sway on the porch swing, hear the breeze and mockingbirds, and smell the gardenias. Because of the vacant dune-covered lot next door, you enjoy a sense of privacy and nature. Getting to the ocean is a short walk over the dune and there is the ocean-- or in bad weather, you can sit on the upstairs porch and see the whole panorama. This is perhaps the cleanest house you've ever seen. Wherever you want to set down your drink, there is a coaster. Wherever you want to sit, there is a chair and a hassock. The mattresses are firm and smooth, the air conditioning effective, the bathrooms large and spotless. This is a place where you step back into an imagined past, unpretentious and ideal, where relaxation and family can take center stage. All distractions or irritants are banished. It's an oasis. Fabulous.

We have worked diligently to set up our place so that our guests' experience is one in which the things they might need in order to be comfortable in our home have been anticipated and provided. Thank you again for taking the time to share your thoughts about your stay. We hope to see you again soon. Sincerely~AH

The Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

I grew up on the ocean, so I have a lot of expectations when I rent a beach property - this charming house meets every single one. I have rented this house on multiple occasions over the last five years and have nothing but positive things to say. It is perfectly located, literally on the ocean in a quiet residential area that is still just a few minutes drive from "downtown" Virginia Beach. The house is on a large piece of property with a wonderful sense of privacy and loads of parking. It's multiple porches and sun rooms provide true indoor/outdoor living with views of the ocean. Those who love spending the day curled up reading while looking at the ocean will enjoy the house as much as those who revel in its proximity to ocean and beach activities. The house is cozy, with the charm of a local residence, while still providing clean and updated living spaces. What distinguishes this house from most rentals is the owners attentiveness to detail - all of the bathrooms (and the amazing outdoor shower HOUSE) are clean and stocked with great products; the mattresses and pillows on all of the beds are in great condition and very comfortable; bedrooms are spacious and light-filled with beautiful decor; high quality beach chairs, umbrellas, and outdoor equipment are provided; and a nice flat screen TVS, a wide range of cable offerings, and a fully-stocked book shelf are provided for your family's entertainment needs. The kitchen and dining areas are stocked to the hilt - you have no reason to leave the house for dinner whether you are serving four or twenty people. There are multiple sets of good quality china, glassware, silver ware, cloth napkins, and serving dishes as well as beach-friendly cups, plates, bowls, etc. The kitchen boasts two refrigerators as well as every tool or appliance one would need to cook a gourmet meal. To add to your ease as a guest, all cabinets and the entire pantry are labelled according to the items inside, so you are never searching for what you need. Detailed instructions are provided for check in, check out, laundry, garbage and all other practicalities, which takes all of the stress and guess work out of being in the house. You can really feel how much the owners love the house, and I guarantee you will love it too.
