About Jim & Nora Bonner

We both grew up in Ohio, fell in love as high school sweethearts. Married young but waited for our family. Once our two daughters came along we always took a family vacation to the Ocean. We loved the Ocean and never dreamed we would have a piece of Paradise in Virginia.

Jim & Nora Bonner purchased this studio in 2002

Why Jim & Nora Bonner chose Virginia Beach

We feel it was a God thing we found this little Gem on the Ocean. In 2001 we stayed and loved it. The owner's relative was there also and asked how we liked the studio. Of course we said, 'we love it!' we asked if they would want to sell it. The rest is wonderful history.

What makes this studio unique

Virginia Beach has so much to offer. The beautiful Ocean, Boardwalk, Historical Sites, Military Sites, Water Sports, Restaurants, Entertainment, and SHOPPING!!!

First family trip to Virginia Beach

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed very much staying at Jim and Nora's studio. It's not a huge space but the layout was done in a fashion that complimented the studio's size. The studio is great for a couple or small families (wouldn't push more than four people). You have everything you need within a short warking distance (beach, restaurant, 7/11 and juice bar), there's even an attached restaurant which doesn't hinder you from enjoying the great beach vibe. I really like that from their studio you had access to multiple viewpoints where you could watch the pool to the hotel next door, then there is a private area with a view to the beach and also the pool area which had plenty of tables/seating. It was amusing watching so many people walking/riding around searching for Pokemon.

The only constructive criticism would be to update the kitchen cabinet area with a slide out trash can. We used shopping bags that we had handy. This would avoid having to walk outside to the large garbage can so frequently. We had to but a frying pan to scramble up eggs and make pancakes in the morning. You may just want to avoid cooking or make sure to open the door and windows. The picture showed umbrellas but the document supplied only mentioned beach chairs. I would suggest some umbrellas and the accessory to ensure the umbrellas are securely placed be provided.

Overall, we really had a great time and would recommend this place to any of my friends and family. If you're planning a trip make sure to check on Groupon for discounts to places like Ocean Breeze water park which had a great deal which included meals, ifly (indoor skydiving) and Busch Gardens/Water country if you want to take a detour on the way to or from home.

Best,

The Perez Family

Owner's Response: Thank you, Perez Family we're so glad you had a great time. One of the owners took a darling picture of your families Flip Flops lined up on the front porch. So...darling. The larger trash can sounds like a good idea, good thing, the there are larger ones out on the back deck, not too far from the studio. We're sorry about the frying pan, we will replace it, it probably went home accidently with someone else. About the beach umbrella that is no longer something we provide from the studio, due to possible accidents, we suggest that you bring your own or rent from the life guards that install them correctly in the sand. Over all it sounds like you had a safe and enjoyable family time, and we're so thankful for that. Sincerely, Jim & Nora

Very nice small place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Perfect size for just me and my wife. Great location at end of Boardwalk. Only complaint was air conditioner was loud. There wasn't a cooler in the apartment to take to the beach either, but not a big deal. Very clean place to stay for a week. Will definitely use again when we go back to Virginia Beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind response. We're so glad you liked the place and cleanliness, and found the location great. Sorry about the air conditioner. At the Ocean the salt air is hard on them. We've been searching to find a quieter one but only to be told all window air conditioners make some noise. Since we're booked until September we'll have to wait to replace it. But, we will definitely put a new one in for next season hopefully we'll find one that guarantees to be quiet. Thanks again, we look forward to having you back when you come to Virginia Beach. Jim & Nora

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

The property was in a great location on the boardwalk, on the beach and walking distance to the trolley, shops, and restaurants.

The space was small, but clean, updated, and very well equipped! We had everything we needed and spent more time out and about anyway. There was a large balcony that had a great view of everything around and the back patio space was lovely for sitting, grilling, and eating. It was really nice to have washers and dryers on location too, unfortunately one of the two washers was out of order so laundry was a little backed up.

The units are cooled by window ACs which was very loud and turned off and on frequently. Not sure if it was so loud because the space is smaller or it was an older AC, but looking into a quieter one would be our only suggestion!

Just some good things to know for first time visitors: We traveled with an infant so we noticed these things more than others without small children might. This area is VERY busy this time of year which comes with a lot of noise until about 11pm on weekdays and through the night (till about 3am) on weekends. Also the naval air station is close by so the helicopters and jets fly over all day and evening which are loud enough to wake a sleeping baby.

Overall, we enjoyed the space and had a really great time. We would strongly recommend staying here!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words, and thank you for letting us know about the air conditioner, we're now searching for one that will be more quiet. Also I will contact management to look into the noise issue, our complex has a noise ordinance which is usually respected by owners and guests. Thanks again, we're glad you enjoyed all the things Virginia Beach has to offer. Jim & Nora

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive remarks. Yes, our studio is always so clean, we have the best cleaning person ever. We're also so glad you enjoyed our location on the Boardwalk it's one of our favorite things too. I agree the North End is the Best and the Boardwalk makes it so convenient to walk or bike to restaurants and entertainment. Of course the Trolly is great too, if you don't want to walk or if you want to go to other areas. Thanks again. It is always important to us, that we do the very best we can, to make sure our guests have the best time ever, at the beach. Jim & Nora
