Exquisitely Appointed Ocean Side Home 5 Sleeping Areas Perfect For 2 Families
About Laurie Francis
Because we love Virginia Beach so much, we bought a beach home in our own town! My husband is a builder who completely renovated this home and I as an interior designer did the interiors.
Laurie Francis purchased this House in 2013
Why Laurie Francis chose Northeast Virginia Beach
The North End is the most prestigious and sought after neighborhood in Virginia Beach, and this home is steps from the beach. It offers privacy and many entertaining possibilities, while also giving guests a truly coastal Virginia experience.
What makes this House unique
We renovated this home so that one day we could retire here and entertain our grand kids! We are on the ocean side so my sweet grand children will not need to cross busy Atlantic Ave. and has an elevator should we become unable to do stairs.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
PERFECT IN EVERY WAY
We had a wonderful time in this very beautiful house. So convenient to the beach and away from traffic. When booking this a year in advance, I was grateful for the ability to cancel up to 5 weeks before arrival date and be guaranteed an 100% refund. Life happens and it was good to know we could cancel, if necessary. Laurie was available and quick to respond to each email I sent.
We couldn't have asked for any thing more. Our family and CA friends absolutley loved it! Even my husband, who is NOT a beach fan, thanked me for a 'great vacation'!!!
Highly recommend this beautiful home.
We''ll be Back
The house exceeded our expectations. It truly is beautiful and the location could not have been better. We rented ShoreHaven to attend a wedding. We will be renting again soon to enjoy the beach. The house is immaculate and incredibly well maintained. The layout is very open with a lot of spaces for everyone. The hardest decision is what spot to enjoy next. Only regret is that we were unable to stay longer.
This home is not to be missed!
I cannot possibly say enough nice things about Shorehaven (It really should be called Shoreheaven). We rented this home to celebrate our family Christmas. My daughter- in-law was battling stage 4 cancer and we knew that she wouldn't be strong enough to make the trip to Ohio. Unfortunately she passed away 2 days before we were due to check in. When Laurie heard, she told us we could check in immediately (a day early - I was just hoping to be able to get in a few hours early). When I opened the door, I couldn't believe my eyes. The home was so beautifully decorated for Christmas that it brought tears to my eyes. My daughter-in-law would have loved it. This home is so beautiful. No detail has been overlooked. It was such a wonderful place for my family. Our emotions were so raw that it was like a warm hug each time we'd come home. We've rented many homes on VRBO, Airbnb, and Home Away all across the country. This was the most beautiful - by far. I will never be able to repay Laurie and her husband for the kindness that they showed my family during this difficult time. If you are considering renting this home for a vacation, do it quickly... before someone else rents it before you do. You will not regret it.
(I forgot to mention how close it is to the ocean and a beautiful beach!)
Your review brought tears to my eyes. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay despite the circumstances. Please come back and see us :)
The Perfect Home for Gathering!
Our family came from all over the country to celebrate Thanksgiving here and all agreed it was the best home we've gotten together in so far (we gather every year in various states). There were several things that made it so perfect. First, the home is beautiful and very inviting. Well-appointed and personal touches everywhere. Second, there are spaces for getting the whole gang together to watch "the big game" and also smaller areas for curling up with a book next to a fire. We have introverts and extroverts among us, so that made it perfect for those who need some private time and space for re-energizing. Thirdly, the kitchen is very user-friendly and has all the tools to make a wonderful meal. Lastly, the back yard area is another inviting space, with a hot tub, conversation area, and grill (where we roasted oysters!). Oh yes, and you're two miles from a large grocery store and a few steps from the beach. Two added advantages. All in all, a Thanksgiving we won't forget. We hope to return!
Local North End Secret will not be a secret long!
Your home is incredibly updated, decorated, stocked, maintained,... Its in a perfect location. Our family loved staying there and look forward to next year. What great memories we have from our week in your beautiful home. Thanks for making it such a great vacation.
This is our second stay at this lovely home! We have already booked it for next year too!
Laurie and Jeff have thought of everything. It is beautifully appointed and well stocked. The kitchen has everything one would need. It's a great location, steps from the beach and truly a North End secret! We love this place! Can't wait until next summer!
