About Jennings Family

This is the Jennings Family, descendants of Dr. W. Stanley Jennings, our patriarch, who owned this beach property since the 60s. He was well loved and highly regarded by his children and grandchildren who have banded together to restore this vacation rental property. He contributed greatly to the Hampton Roads area as a physician for over 50 years and is considered the founding father of Chesapeake General Hospital (now Chesapeake Regional Medical Center) in Chesapeake, VA.

Jennings Family purchased this apartment in 1960

Why Jennings Family chose Virginia Beach

This property has been in our family since the 60s. Too many memories and stories to tell. Recently, we decided to make it as nice as we could, so it fits well with all the nice restaurants and other surrounding activities.

What makes this apartment unique

You don't even have to leave the front yard to hear the live bands! Your own personal concert, beautiful beach, nice places to eat AND you're staying in an apartment with brand new flooring, furniture and appliances. You can walk back to your apartment to use the bathroom instead of using the public restrooms.

Fantastic Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This was the PERFECT girls' get-away! The unit's location couldn't have been better - walking distance to great local restaurants, the boardwalk and bandstand, and even the one-stop-shopping Walgreens. The hardest part of the weekend was squeezing everything in one car so we could use the one allotted parking space. The unit comfortably accommodated us, and the owners were extremely sweet! I am certain we will return :-)

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect! It is close to the beach, the 24th street stage, and lots of restaurants. The house is charming and clean. The owners are very welcoming and responsive. I definitely recommend this property. My family was well pleased.

Nice cottage in excellent location but lacking in comforts.

  • 3 of 5

The location of this cottage is great! It really is just a half block to the strip and when you cross the street you're at the beach. It is right at the 24th Stage which is a good visual to help you when the beach all starts to look the same. The strip has tons of the typical tourist shops mixed with plenty of casual and nice dining options. The cottage itself was very clean and I appreciated the quality of the washer and dryer. The biggest problem we had was the mattresses. My husband and I stayed on the queen pull out sofa one night just because that was bigger than the two full beds in the bedrooms. Now I know it's a sofa sleeper but it was terrible. The pillows provided were so worn out they were flat. The next night we had out 19 year old son just sleep on the couch with the cushions and that worked out okay for him. We switched to a bedroom and found that mattress/pillows totally lacking as well. I can't help but think that with what we paid for our 3 night stay would cover new mattresses for the apartment. I would also suggest providing drapes as it very bright. Not just in the morning but since the cottage is between a hotel and the strip there are tons of streetlights that pour in light. Checking in was very easy and the owner was very quick regarding it. We were even able to check in at 2 instead of 4 so that was very much appreciated.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the feedback on the sofabed mattress and pillows. Every mattress was purchased new in 2013. Very sorry to hear that the sofabed was so uncomfortable. We will look for a solution on that for the 2017 season if not before. It is hard to find a comfortable pull out couch mattress/bed. Pillows are an easier fix. Maybe we can try a mattress topper?

Cutest Beach Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in Unit C of "The Captain's Quarters" and it was such a perfect vacation! The location is really great, only about a half a block up to the beach and it was really close to a lot of restaurants and shops. The house is tucked back away from the street so it was quiet and private which was really great! The apartment itself was very clean, nicely updated and so colorful! It really felt like a peaceful little beach home. There were six of us staying there and there was plenty of space for all of us, we didn't feel cramped at all. One thing that we really liked is that the bathroom is updated and very large. It had a lot of towel racks which was really helpful with six of us staying there. The owner's were very responsive and really helpful with any questions we had. One of the girls blew a fuse when she was drying her hair and I got a response back from the owner's within two minutes telling us where the fuse box was located so we could get it turned back on! I would highly recommend this property! We will be staying here again for sure when we come back to Virginia Beach!

Great rental house!

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean, well-maintained and located in a great location 1/2 block from the beach. The Jennings family was great to work with from the moment we made our reservation to the time we checked out. I would definitely consider staying at this rental property again.

Amazing Place !!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank You for sharing your house with our family. Only half a block away from the beach. We walked on the boardwalk and on the main strip without any worries. Place was neat and clean. We will be coming back in the future. Words alone cannot describe the feeling that this place gave us. Thanks again.
