Beautiful home in Croatan, Virginia Beach. Home has elevator, swimming pool, two kitchens, four bedrooms and two bonus bedrooms. The home is currently being furnished with new furniture to include 1 king bed in master, two bunk beds in 2nd bedroom, queen in 3rd bedroom, and 2 full beds in 4th bedroom. Bonus has full sleeper sofa and main living room has a sleeper sofa. If fully utilized, the home can sleep 17.
Why Croatan? You have the best of both worlds. Croatan is a private community that is 1 mile south of Virginia Beach boardwalk and a private community that does not allow street parking. You get to enjoy the hustle and bustle of crowded Virginia Beach during the summer by walking 1 mile to the boardwalk along a beautiful walking path. On the other hand, you can walk two blocks to the community beach where it is a lot less crowded then the oceanfront. Check our map listed on our photos to see the location of our property.

About Ray Gessner
My name is Ray Gessner and I have lived in Virginia Beach my entire life. I am madly in love with my beautiful girlfriend named Kellie. We live in the home during the year and rent it during weeks of the summer. I own a local chimney sweep company named 'A Step in Time Chimney Sweeps.'
Ray Gessner purchased this House in 2013

Great Family Time
We rented Ray's beautiful home to celebrate our 50th with our kids and grandkids. We chose this rental because it had a pool with a slide for the grandkids, was close to the beach, and had lots of bedrooms and living space for everyone to spread out. The elevator was a big plus since us old people are finding stairs to be more of a challenge each year! We read the reviews about how beautiful and well maintained Ray's property was and how responsive he was to any problems that would arise. Our experience was that those reviews were spot on. Ray is a man of integrity who truly cares about providing the best experience for his renters. We paid for a quality rental experience ... and that's exactly what we got. We couldn't have been happier with our stay in Virginia Beach. The property is truly a 5 star rental ... but the owner and the support he provides is off the charts. Thanks Ray! We cared for your house like it was our own... and you took care of us like we were family. It doesn't get any better than that.
Thank you for the glowing review. Jeff and Matt had both mentioned what a wonderful person you were and they both spoke very highly of you. I am thrilled that the 50th went so welll with the family. I am glad that you could make wonderful family memories at our home. Thank you for your stay and hope to see you again in the future.

Our children and grandchildren had a great time they loved the pool.This trip was all about family.we had some issues with the fridge stove and the pool slide.Those issues were not resolved totally but they did comp us to the aquarium.putting aside the issues the beach was awesome and the home had just about everything you needed for a wonderful vacation
Really great place for a family or families who want lots of room and a pool
The owner was very responsive when we had a few questions before we left home. The house was absolutely beautiful and had everything we needed for a wonderful week. The beach is terrific and has the feel of a private beach with lifeguards.

We visited VA Beach in July 2017 for a dance competition held at the Convention Center. Our group consisted of 5 Mothers and 6 children. The house is very large with MANY gathering locations to visit each other. The mothers had a living space to talk while the kids were in front of the TV or playing games in the kitchen...there are 2 balconies, table at the pool, downstairs kitchen...Honestly, we couldn't use all the space, which was great! The owner responded to our questions at check-in immediately and accommodated our every request. The walk to the beach was short and the children had dolphins swimming with them Sunday morning! I think our video shows them to be about 15 feet away! Thanks so much for setting up a great rental home.
Our three children and their families came from various states to share this vacation with us. We couldn't have made a better choice. Location was great as were the amenities the house provided. We were four different families and the house design offered privacy for all. The kids loved the pool as well as proximity to the beach. Perfect weather all week was the frosting on the cake. Thanks for a wonderful experience.
We are so pleased that you had a wonderful time with great weather. Thank you so much for making our house a home.

Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
We offer a towel service but in our opinion, they are not the best quality and have not found a service to provide great towels. If you would like towels and are not as picky as Kellie, then we would be glad to add towel service and the company charges $10 per set.
