About Lisa Freeman

We find the water here as good as it gets after traveling extensively through U.S. Tidewater area has many activities to keep our interest. Norfolk also has great museums and some interesting architecture downtown and loads of unique restaurants. Bay is huge and right around the corner is the oceanfront. Largest naval Base makes for some great site seeing too. There is always something going on outside to watch on the water here.

Lisa Freeman purchased this house in 2013

Why Lisa Freeman chose Norfolk

It's all about the water! Once you arrive on this strip of land that juts out into the waters of Tidewater area, you feel as if you've landed on an island, but with easy to access to get around. Norfolk also has great museums and some interesting architecture downtown and loads of unique restaurants. The bay is huge and right around the corner is the oceanfront. Largest naval Base makes for some great site seeing too. There is always something going on outside to watch on the water here.

What makes this house unique

The house is situated on waterfront, and centrally for exploring the area. The kitchen, everything in great condition and everything you could or would possible need. Your can make a very large meal for your family. We are available should you need anything. cooler, high chair, pack and play, beach umbrellas,, and beach chairs, beach toys are all free and included. Just let us know if you need anything at all!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the views from the home and the home itself is one of the best we have chosen. The Chinese Goose Stanley was a treat to see as well as the other wildlife. We enjoyed both beaches and took loads of photos. Hope to return soon.

Fantastic Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at Lisa's house for a long weekend, and we had an amazing time. The location was perfect as we were attending our 10 year homecoming reunion at Hampton University. The weather was perfect, so we were able to use the beach that was just a few steps away even in mid October. Inside the house was also incredibly accommodating, we had more than enough sleeping space for 8 adults, with room to spare. And the living/dining room area were perfect for us all to sit around and talk, and eat the meals we prepared in the fully stocked kitchen. I'd definitely recommend this place for any group looking for a easy and relaxed getaway.

Great view, excellent location, and very clean.

  • 5 of 5

On 29 September I received a phone call that my nephew had passed away. The viewing and funeral were the following week, so I needed a place quickly that would hold family members traveling from out of town (Maryland, West Virginia, Georgia, Florida, and Northern Virginia). This place the perfect! It was close to the funeral home, gave us a place to relax and spend time together during this difficult time. The kitchen was clean and well stock with cookware so we could enjoy our meals together and there was plenty of room for everyone to sleep. The view was surreal and the beach was perfect when you needed some time to reflect. The owner went out of her way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. I hope to come back to visit the area and stay here under different circumstances.

$400 for a table cloth?

  • 1 of 5

Let's start with saying that the owner conveniently cashed my security check after my stay and couldnt quite figure out why. She told me she destroyed the check, according to her records. After I persisted that it had been cashed according to my bank account, she then sent me an email saying the check was cashed because there was a stain on a table cloth.

The house is not in great shape! My husband, son and I stayed in a room with a huge blood stain on the bed blanket, as well as blood stains on the curtains. Seems like something you may have wanted to replaced? The shower doors in this bed room were not attached properly and looked like they havent been cleaned in quite some time. The couch was completely shredded with a blanket thrown over it and we had small children with us. They were not able to play on the floor for fear they may eat bits of plastic. (I have pics of all these things as proof)

The real treat of the stay at this rental was the infestation of MICE that ran through the kitchen while we were cooking.

Do yourselves a favor and pick another rental!

Owner's Response: We charged $35 NOT $400. We thoroughly inspect the home between guest, no other guests noticed nor did we she anything that resembled this review. Nor did the guests that arrived the week before. We have 3 rentals and they are our livelihood, so we always make sure everything is tip top!! She was upset I cashed her check, but 35.00 is not unreasonable for the food fight with chili that we saw left when they departed.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

Very nice stay in this welcoming home. Very clean, well equipped and large for our family of 8. We enjoyed the deck and the beach, and kayaks, all great for the kids too. We walked the larger beach several times. It was very close to walk to and vastly different than other crowed beaches on the east cost. We did a day downtown, checking out the USS Wisconsin and the zoo. Went to Williamsburg (loved it) and Jamestown. The location and the house were ideal!!! The owners were very nice and accommodating. We want to return soon.
