Why David L. Wright chose Portsmouth
I was fortunate enough to happen across this property while kayaking on the Lafayette River and Knitting Mill Creek. Love at first site and it's been a labor of love ever since!

Perfect "Home" Away from Home
This home is a gem! It has charm, is very well stocked with all the necessities (and many nice optional items, e.g. bottled water, juice, coffee, tea bags, creamer and sugar, etc.), and the location is terrific! The home has been remodeled and its location on the river is so peaceful. It is wonderful waking up each morning and looking out onto the water and the large deck with outdoor grill is perfect for relaxing anytime. the weather didn't allow us to use the kayaks, but we will be back again, so we get to use this feature. It is located close to the Old Dominion University campus, so it was perfect for us to be close to our grandson and watch his baseball games. David, the owner, was wonderful to work with in arranging our trip and he was very responsive if we had a question. I highly recommend this home. It can't even compare to staying in a hotel. Thank you David! We will definitely be back.
I'm really glad that you both have enjoyed staying at the Bungalow and hope the weather takes a turn for the better during your future stay!!! Four Nor'easters consecutively is unheard of and you're due for some springtime warmth, sunshine and blooming flowers.... to go along with the kayaking.
Clean, cozy home in a central location.
Location: centrally located to many activities in Norfolk, such as ODU, Ghent area and Naval Station. It is tough to beat the water access for kayaking on one side and walking distance to some great restaurants and cafes on the other.
Home: Very clean, well laid-out, stocked nicely for an enjoyable stay.
Owner/manager: probably the best communication we've had on HomeAway (and the other site) . Courteous and professional throughout our experience.
My family and I enjoyed our stay at the bungalow and would stay there again the next time we are in Hampton Roads.
So glad you and your family enjoyed your stay and that your kids had the time to get out in the kayaks. You guys really went above to leave the place just as clean and orderly as when you arrived.... thanks so much! David
Charming, cozy, clean and centrally located!
We really enjoyed the water view on the sunny mornings. Also the walkable neighborhood with easy access to Colley Avenue with its many restaurants. We ate at Starving Artist and Chow. Both very good. Easy drive to ODU, Ghent and downtown Norfolk and beach. We were 3 but plenty of room for 4.
Owner very responsive. Home has all amenities and items you may need including toiletries and coffee.
comfy cozy just like home
I almost don't want to give too good a review because I want to keep it our secret find. But this little bungalow has all the comforts of home and suited us well for our week in town. All around nice, clean, stocked with all you might need, comfy beds and great hot showers. Nice touches like being at a bed and breakfast but it's your own space to cook or eat out as desired. Welcome book has all the details needed and communication with hosts David and Natasha perfect. We didn't want for anything. Thanks David and Natasha
What an charming house in an amazing location! We LOVED it!
So many amenities offered. Never had anyone provide coffee, bottled water and so many toiletries items. Could not have asked for more! We had a relaxing stay. Thanks for opening your home to us! Hope to return again one day!
Terrific house and great host!
Well stocked and maintained home with water views. Very comfortable staff with nice yard. Would definitely stay again!
