About Lisa Freeman

We love the area, especially walking down to the fishing pier or on the beach collecting shells and sea glass. City of Norfolk is nice to visit, safe and not too large, USS Wisconson, a fabulous Botanical gardens and a zoo all packed into our city of 280,000. Don't forget Water Country USA in Williamsburg.

Lisa Freeman purchased this house in 2003

Why Lisa Freeman chose Norfolk

This house is like being out to sea on a ship. The water is so close. The location makes for wonderful breezes in the (zero insects). The views will take your breath away. Close to 5 cities (all within 20 minutes)!

What makes this house unique

STILTED HOUSE FOR EXCEPTIONAL VIEWS. BALCONIES OVER WATER. NAVY BASES ARE CLOSE AS WELL AS MANY HISTORICAL SITES.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Never renting this again!

  • 2 of 5

We are first time VRBO customers and our overall experience with this "Ten Mile View" property was not what we expected and yet, this owner gave me a 3 star rating and for what?? After you read my review, tell me who should be the lower star rating...

a) Communication: Clear and concise communication was made with the owner, almost daily. When they weren't "popping over" for an unexpected visit or knocking on our door, we were allowed to somewhat enjoy our stay.

b) Upon arrival, the air conditioning did not work and we nearly burned up the first night. They did send the air conditioning people out the next day & problem was solved.

c) Dog hair was all over the sheets in our bed. Thank God, we brought our own, or we would've had to sleep in dog hair. I had to cover the sofas with sheets, to keep the dog hair off of our clothes.

d) Plenty of flying, gigantic roaches in the kitchen & even in the kitchen drawers. Wash your silverware & plates!

e) The property permeated with the completely disgusting smell of seafood left in full garbage cans that were at the bottom of the entry steps.

f) Owner "says" she gave me implicit instructions NOT to use 1 empty space directly in front of the house, but I never received her "drawing" and was not told not to use it. She made me move our vehicle and told to park on the street, but only to allow 2 tires of our car to get on her grass, because she had just spent $900 on sod.

VIEW: Excellent

SIZE: Excellent

DECK: Excellent

OWNER (lady): Not Excellent

Best family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 7 headed to the south from PA. When we arrived we were awestruck by the views. We used all of the beach chairs provided at both beaches, and used the beach under the deck to launch our kayaks. We liked that it was 20steps into the water from the yard. The location was ideal as we did a lot of site seeing for 2 days. Thank Lisa for having us in your beautiful home. We could not have asked a nicer local.

EAST COAST DELIGHT

  • 5 of 5

Homey, clean, comfortable and above all fantastic westward facing view. We could see so much from the decks. Took the kayak out and the peddle boat.

The beach beneath house is great to access water and used the beach directly behind the house to do some swimming. My daughter and son in law walked to the long beach daily for shelling, we can't wait to return

Notes:
Many historical sites such as Yorktown Battle Field, Jamestown settlement, and Williamsburg, as well as Busch Gardens amusement park are only 25 minutes away via interstate 64. Many military bases in the area, my favorite is Fort Story where you can walk into a lighthouse built in 1700's. We have several beautiful beaches in the Tidewater area. Including Virginia Beach with a boardwalk area is a short drive.1 beach on site 50 steps away PLUS two blocks away is a very long, quite beach that is beautiful. Very convenient, no parking fees and great by East Coast standards. See video in photo section of this ad. There are two restaurants,one 3 min walk, another 10 minutes. Many nice shops are located in Norfolk, Williamsburg and Virginia Beach.
