Why Owner/Manager chose Croatan Beach

This property is perfectly located in Croatan, a wonderful neighborhood just south of the Virginia Beach Boardwalk and the hustle and bustle of the resort area. It is so close to it (0.9 mile) you can actually jog to it (our favorite activity during early hours of most summer days), or bike there. Croatan is an oceanfront and direct ocean access residential neighborhood with a wonderful and caring community. The beach is only 5 min walk. There are some limited views of the Ocean from the third floor of the house and decks.

What makes this house unique

It is in the best location in Croatan; Very limited street parking guarantees your quiet vacation in a neighborhood with limited traffic and very quiet, not crowded beach.The beach we access through Twilight lane is exclusively for swimming, (enforced by lifeguards who ticket surfers, if any) hence very safe for small children. If you would like to surf with a surfing board, there are dedicated and exclusive surfing areas at the northern and southern most parts of the beach.. Very close to the boardwalk but still super quiet. Fully furnished with all amenities, second fridge, board games.

Perfect house for a family beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this house based on reviews and the information in the listing, and it was definitely the right choice. The house was exactly as represented and perfect for our family (my husband and me, our daughter and her 2 1/2 year old son, and our puppy) - spacious with a large open living area and plenty of beds, and the location was perfect. Our grandson and the puppy loved playing in the fenced-in back yard. The beach was just a short walk away. The house was well stocked, including beach equipment and toys for our use. The beach cart was a lifesaver!! We also enjoyed visiting the aquarium and biking on the boardwalk. It was a quick, easy drive to just about anything we wanted to do. The neighborhood streets were quiet and safe for walking. The house itself was very clean and well maintained. My husband loved the huge TV in the living room, and I especially appreciated that the kitchen included a Keurig coffeemaker! We loved the balconies - they were quite large, and perfect for coffee in the morning and just relaxing any time. The owner was very responsive to all questions. This rental experience was awesome and we would definitely recommend it!

Better than I could have imagined!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself, son, daughter in law and our dogs just returned from this property and we thoroughly enjoyed it! The house is a very short walk to the beach ( we are from New Jersey and we are used to walking a mile from the car to the beach!) The house has everything you could need to make a great vacation. The kitchen is well stocked and there is plenty of sleeping space for many people. The common area is great and the decks are a great place to hang out and relax. We will be back!

Thank you Enit! Patti Rosenkranz

Great Beach Gem

  • 5 of 5

Very very close to the beach (the map does not show just how close it is). Plenty of room for my 13 year old son and a 9 month old baby and my parents. Loved the fact that there are two living rooms so everyone could do what they want, my son played video games while my folks watched the movies. Huge kitchen with a lot of counter tops and new appliances and necessary supplies. Two AC control zones (priceless). Two large balconies (one covered) for a great time outside with the baby or just having breakfasts or lunch. Even a view of the water from the masters suit, which was huge with a big bathroom. Loved it. Plenty of beach items (buggy - definitely were using every day for all the baby things). Thank you.

Wonderful family vacation at Croatan home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect--this location was ideal for us, and the layout and of the house and everything it had to offer were great as well. We had easy access to the beach from the house, which meant kids could go swimming pretty much whenever they wanted, and it was close to all the other fun things to do in the areas. Since we had people who get up early and people who like to sleep in, the space and living arrangements meant that we weren't stepping on each other's toes.

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house! Plenty of rooms for the 4 of us and clean. It was a short walk to the beach which meant we could come and go as we pleased. Also having beach chairs and a cart available at the house meant we didn't have to lug all of our beach stuff from NJ. It was a nice walk or bike ride to the board walk, which we did frequently. We also found a great surfing camp down the road, so my kids were able to walk there every morning and at the end of 4 days can now say they know how to surf. We will definitely be back!!!
