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 summer, (zero insects). The views will take your breath away. Close to 5 cities (all within 20 minutes)!

Fun place to stay in Norfolk

  • 5 of 5

This home is situated right on the water with two decks for enjoying the sunset. It is clean and well-appointed. The owners live nearby and are responsive to every request. You can easily walk to a section of the beach that is peaceful and not crowded. There are so many things to do in Norfolk, you really need to stay more than a week!

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay and loved the deck area which has ample seating. House very clean with great washer and dryer and decor. We had our own kayaks but the two sea kayaks at the house looked fine. The nearby highway provides easy access to Hampton and Newport News to the North and Norfolk and Virginia Beach to the South. Though some highway noise, it was not a big deal. The shared beach is close though we used the longer beach which is less than a 12 minute walk. There is no parking at the 13th street entrance to the beach but you can drop gear off and park nearby. The Sunset Grill was small and rustic but the food was good and the employees friendly. Enjoyed watching the Navy ships and helicopters, as well as, the porpoises. So be sure the bring binoculars. The three decks and lower patio provide a mix of sun and shade. We hope to be back next year and would recommend the rental to all.

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.
