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!

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 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.

Fabulous Beach Home / Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just finished up our stay at Kathy's home July 8 - 15. There were 9 of us. The house was very clean and roomy, close easy walk to the beach and all the activities. Kathy (and Tony) were very helpful and gave great suggestions. We ate Surf Riders, rented a pontoon boat, road bikes, visited Busch Gardens, listed to live music on the boardwalk (Buck Shot rocks!). Lots of different things to for all age level.

Would definitely make a return visit.

The house very nice in every way!! The location is perfect for a wonderful vacation at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The house is like new , very clean and furnished with everything we needed for a great vacation. There are three very comfortable bedrooms. The children loved the master bedroom and bath because of the three sets of bunk beds and the walk in closet work as a quiet place for the baby to sleep in her pack and play. Everyone loved the outside shower where we went as soon as we got back from the beach. It was only two blocks from the board walk and beach. The grocery store was close enough to walk to. Kathy the owner, lives next door and was great help recommending places to eat and things to do. We hope to go back in a couple years. We highly recommend this property.

Beautiful beach house close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fantastic vacation!! We typically go to Ocean City, MD for our "friendship vacation," but this year we're so glad we chose Virginia Beach. The house was absolutely gorgeous with all the necessary amentities and more. It was so much better than renting some rooms at a hotel (and cheaper!). It is in the perfect location, less than two blocks away from the beach and the super market, and a two minute drive to the liquor store. The town of VB had so much to offer with so many shops, restaurants, and bars. Some of our favorite places were Repeal (mind-blowingly good burgers), Rockafellers (fresh & delicious seafood), and Luna Sea (super fun bar with yummy orange crushes). And Kathy was a wonderful host, she was very helpful and laid back. Overall we had an amazing vacation and we'll surely be back next year!

Wonderful home and hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Kathy is a wonderful owner with a beautiful home so close to the beach. My friends and I stayed there for my bachelorette party and it was absolutely perfect! We had plenty of space and the location was right in the middle of tons of places to eat and shop. Kathy was so accommodating to us!! A few friends and I have even already talked about coming back next summer and staying in the same place! I would recommend this home to anyone, it accommodated lots of girls but also very suitable for a big family!
