About the property

NEW 3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath, Sleeps up to 10, Beach is 2 Blocks Away, Outdoor Shower

This new home is less than 2 blocks from the beach and the boardwalk in the Old Beach neighborhood of Virginia Beach. The Va Beach Convention Center is a mile away! The Harris Teeter grocery store is less than 2 blocks away and dozens of restaurants and shops are all within walking distance. Three bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and a half bathroom downstairs.

Sorry, no pets allowed and no smoking!

Private driveway accommodates two vehicles and I can assist with passes for on street parking, if necessary.

The 2 story house was built in 2011 and is located just two blocks from the beach and boardwalk. The first floor has the kitchen, dining and living rooms in the open floor concept. The fully equipped kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and a large pantry. Dishes, silverware, glasses, coffee cups, pots and pans, and a toaster are all provided. The large dining table seats 8 and there are 3 barstools at the breakfast bar area.

The living room has a large sofa, a leather recliner, a large oversized leather chair, along with a large TV. There is a half bathroom off of the downstairs hall. The French door leads out to the 10x10 patio with a 20 ft awning for sun protection after being at the beach all day! There are 5 outdoor chairs for relaxing in the small fenced in yard, which has a gas grill for your use. There is a garage/storage area with bikes, a boogie board, a beach umbrella, beach mats, and sand toys, etc for your fun times at the beach! Around the side of the house, is a fully enclosed private shower, with hot water.

The second floor has 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. I had 6 bunk beds custom built in the master bedroom - 4 twin XL and 2 twins - , which has a walk-in closet, a dresser and a large TV. The master bathroom has a double vanity with a granite counter top, a linen closet, and a shower..

The middle bedroom has a full xl sized bed, closet, a small chest of drawers, a night stand and a small TV. The front bedroom has a queen size bed with a night stand, armoire, small chest of drawers, and a closet,

Also upstairs is a full bathroom with a tub/shower combo and a utility closet with a new washer and dryer. All of the mattresses are new, all of the bedrooms have ceiling fans, and both bathrooms have hair dryers.

I furnish linens, bath towels and some beach towels. There will be one roll of paper towels in the kitchen and a roll of toilet paper in each bathroom to give you time to get to the store, along with a couple of dishwasher pods and laundry detergent pods, a few small bars of soap, and a couple of individual size bottles of shampoo.

The Neighborhood - Old Beach

In the heart of Virginia Beach, just 2 blocks from the boardwalk and beach, yet in a quiet area of Old Beach. About 2 blocks away is Harris Teeter, a 24/7 upscale grocery store and pharmacy. Restaurants and shopping are all within walking distance. There is also a neighborhood hardware store and ABC store just 4 blocks away, along with another grocery store!

In summary, this is a new beach house, nicely furnished and equipped in an awesome location!

Perfect home for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Virginia Beach! This home is conveniently located for visiting the beach, shopping and dining. Kathy is the perfect host and the house has everything you could want including beach toys and chairs. We would definitely recommend staying here - the bunkhouse bedroom is super fun! Look no further, just book this place now and you will be glad you did!

Owner's Response: Glad your family had some time celebrate your daughter's military graduation here at the beach before she had to check-in for her next assignment in Norfolk! Hope to see your family (and the precious granddaughter) again and I expect everyone to be sporting their Army t-shirts!

Beautiful home!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Kathy's property for Labor Day weekend and we really loved it!

The house is beautiful and well maintained. It's spacious, it's clean, and new. We found everything we needed for cooking, grilling, relaxing on the yard, and beyond. It was so close to the beach.

We had a chance to meet Kathy and her husband (I believe), and they were both amiable and attentive to anything questions or needs we could have had.

I would definitely recommend this property. We look forward to coming back!!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a great week at Kathy's house. Spent most days at the beach riding the waves, went to Williamsburg and Busch Gardens, and just relaxed, of course. House is neat and clean and had everything we needed for a terrific week. Close walk to restaurants, shops, groceries, coffee, beach. Kathy is very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back.

About Kathy Runkle

I am a local! Born and raised at the beach! A few years ago, just before I retired, I built a new beach house at the oceanfront, where my means of transportation from the Spring until the Fall is my beach cruiser. I recently decided to obtain another beach cottage, built by the same builder, so I can enjoy sharing my hometown and the simple beach lifestyle with others. I'm sure you will love the area and the new home as much as I do!

Kathy Runkle purchased this house in 2016

Why Kathy Runkle chose Northeast Virginia Beach

I built my beach house and then bought this similar property because I love the Old Beach area and want to share my hometown with others. An early morning stroll down the boardwalk to watch the sunrise or a casual bike ride in the evening to listen to the local bands, makes for a relaxed lifestyle. I'll be excited to share where the locals eat and shop, steering you away from the tourist "traps". I personally inspect the home before every guest arrives to ensure everything is in pristene condition for my next beach guests and I am readily available throughout the week if you need any assistance. This beach house is nicely furnished and equipped with everything you need for a relaxing vacation!

What makes this house unique

The location cannot be beat! This is one of the few new houses in Old Beach shared with others as a seasonal rental. The beach and boardwalk are less than 2 blocks away! There is no need to pack up the car and drive to the beach, as you can't park any closer! Speaking of parking...the driveway holds 4 cars and I can assist with parking on the street if necessary!

The beach house is perfect for families with kids, as one huge bedroom has 6 bunk beds! The Virginia Aquarium is only a few miles away. There are lots of planned activities and concerts at the beach, all within walking distance. The fishing center at Rudee Inlet is only a couple of miles away. Great shops and restaurants are all within walking distance. A new indoor skydiving adventure just opened in 2015, and is only 1 block away. This is the perfect beach rental because it is new, nicely furnished and equipped with everything you need for a relaxing vacation. a local, I'm available to share my knowledge of the area to enhance your vacation.
