Overview

Northeast 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 we are as close to the ocean and dune line as zoning allows. 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 any 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.

Our house is rented by the week only from Sunday to Sunday. Check-in at 4pm and Checkout at 11am.

The home sleeps Nine Persons in five bedrooms with one king bed, one queen bed, and five twin beds. All bedrooms are on the second floor.

Our beach house is off the main road so there's no traffic driving by but it's a quick walk to the beach ramp which means we have the best of both worlds--privacy and accessibility! Once on the ramp, you can easily roll your gear all the way to the water's edge and "set up camp" for a great day of beach fun.

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

We also provide a Wheeleez beach cart, beach chairs, beach umbrellas and, for the little ones, boogie boards, a kiddie wading pool and beach toys. We provide a Weber kettle style charcoal grill and grilling utensils and there are adirondack chairs in the yard so you can sit outside and keep the chef company while you wait for dinner to be served on the screen porch!

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 4 season sun rooms with ceiling fans and comfy seating options provide private getaways from the main family room and dining area (with their large exposed wooden beams) while on our screen porch, your options for relaxing and hanging out include the wooden porch swing, cushioned sofa or you might enjoy having a bit to eat at the wooden table (seats 8). The screen porch is right off the kitchen so whether it's for early breakfast, quick lunch and back to the beach or for cocktails and dining at sunset it's the place where everyone likes to gather together.

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

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

Thank you so much--we had a wonderful week. What a great way to end the summer. We appreciate all the special touches in your home. Our family LOVED the outdoor shower.

Perfect beach house!

  • 5 of 5

I'm writing this review about a month after leaving the beach house and can honestly say that I wish we were still there. Beginning with working with the owners and through the week of our vacation, we had a wonderful experience. The house is beautiful and very accommodating - lots of sitting areas, great views, close access to the beach, outdoor shower - I can go on! It's also in a quieter part of VB so if you're not into the downtown VA Beach scene, this is a great house for you. However, we found ourselves downtown quite often since it is only about a 5 to 10 minute drive.

I think I speak for everyone in our party that we had a great time and the house suited us perfectly. Thank you so much!

Just the best.

  • 5 of 5

If what you want is slick, tacky, and modern, skip this house. If you would instead like to go back in time to a vintage, cozy, comfortable place that exudes charm and love, then this is the house for you. The house was built in an era that prized family and togetherness and all the owners have done to update has taken nothing from that vibe. It's spotlessly clean, luxuriously appointed, and fully modern in all the ways that count, yet you feel you're living in the gracious past. This place is so delightful you don't even have to go to the beach to enjoy your vacation. Spend your time overlooking the dunes and ocean from the sitting room at the front, or swinging on the porch swing on the screen porch, completely private with your own dune between you and the next house (and a shy yet curious fox from time to time). The outdoor shower is a particular favorite-- hot and cold with the breezes tickling you as you bathe. I've made many a meal in that kitchen, cooking alongside 2 and 3 others, and we never seem to get in one another's way. It's like Mary Poppins' magical handbag-- everything fits and marvelous surprises emerge. Every time I arrive, as we turn down the alley and into the parking spot, it's like the land at the end of the rainbow, a little land of its own, a place where we have made many cherished memories, that feels like a peaceful oasis, a true retreat from the hectic, frantic world. When we're here we're living at a different pace, in connection with nature and one another. The owners do absolutely everything to protect this atmosphere of calm and welcome. This is a special place.

Another awesome time at this perfect beach hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family has come to this wonderful oceanfront home for a few summers now and it just gets better every time. I say "home" because this classic beach house goes so far above and beyond any "vacation rental" I've ever experienced that it really feels like home. Well, "home" if home was right on the ocean with a perfectly appointed kitchen, a killer outdoor spa shower (seriously, maybe my favorite part of the experience!), and all the beach goodies you could want. In addition to days spent swimming and lounging on the beach, we love having evening cocktails in the front room with the ocean view in the evening and hosting big long dinner parties on the screened-in porch with friends (we got a bushel of crabs this year and had a crab picking party!). My husband and I have loved sharing this incredible place with our parents and friends here so much that we are already looking at our calendars for next year to book a vacation with our new baby (to be born in February!). We treasure the memories we've made here and can't wait to make this a new family tradition.

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.

In addition to the lovely comments you have written in our guest book, this is a neat way for us to be able to learn more about your feelings regarding what it's like to stay in our beach house. We know there are many accommodation options in Virginia Beach so it's especially gratifying for us to have wonderful guests, like you and your family, who return to stay with us year after year. Again, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and we hope you will come again! Sincerely~AH

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
