About Patrice Beck
Planting myself in Chic's Beach was by accident but I believe I landed on a little slice of heaven. I grew up in Indianapolis and Omaha; far far away from beaches. I enjoy the beach in the early mornings and evenings where I take my Golden Retriever for walks. Because this is a neighborhood where people live and own their properties, we find ourselves on the beach or out and about kvetching with neighbors.
Patrice Beck purchased this Townhome in 2014
Why Patrice Beck chose Northwest
This property is unique for many reasons. It is located in Chic's Beach which is Virginia Beach's best kept secret. It is a small and eclectic community made up of mostly homeowners. It is away from the tourist scene at the ocean front, although the ocean front is just 15 minutes away if you are interested in exploring. You will find homeowners and visitors alike out talking and visiting with one another, riding bikes, skateboarding, or just walking. It is a throw back to a bygone era. The best part is the rental unit that it is tucked up under the large live oaks, yet it is within yards from the beach. Very unusual indeed. It is a private mountain cabin at the beach.
What makes this Townhome unique
Lovely community and beach, beach, beach. Need I say more?
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Good relaxing place w/very short walk to a perfect beach.
The property is a short walk to the beach; maybe four houses and a small side street. The beach is very nice and far less crowded than VA Beach. My teens & us liked it very much. They even saw dolphins out playing one evening.
The property has three nice decks. We especially liked the heavily shaded kitchen deck. Even on the hottest of days, it felt nice there. It's great for morning coffee.
VA Beach is 22 minutes away, with tons to do there (consider Gokayak to actually kayak w/dolphins (we loved that)). Locally, you can stay busy and there isn't any shortage of good restaurants on Shore Drive. Four additional restaurants are even within walking distance.
We would definitely consider staying here again. Thank you.
Chic's Nest- for those who want to be a bit off the beaten path
First, the little town of Chic's Beach was ideal for us. Loved the fact that the dogs can go to the beach (before 10 and after 6 pm). Ours had a BLAST! Loved the fact that we could experience all that this area has to offer without having to deal with crowds, traffic, and noise. It is not a long drive at all to get into the main strip in Virginia Beach- with ocean beaches, aquarium, water sports. . .yet we could come home to peace and quiet in the little hamlet of Chic's Beach with 4 very good restaurants in walking distance. Best of both worlds. So much to do- both the interesting marine life since you are right where the bay enters the ocean and also lots of interesting historical sites nearby (and do visit the Norfolk Botanical gardens - that is less than 10 miles away . )
Now, the house... Spacious, well-equipped, and THREE porches- great for sitting and reading in the mornings or evenings. I have already recommended this place to some of my dog-lovings friends. I know we had a GREAT vacation!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Was cozy and clean with everything we needed. Walking distance to beach and restaurants. Especially enjoyed morning coffee on deck. We plan to return.
Chic’s Nest on Chic’s Beach
Wonderful place in Virginia Beach..... house was perfect for us..... Beach was 2 min. Walk ..... loved every minute!
Sooo much better than the busy main stream Virginia Beach.
First time visitor, we'll be back!
Great location, clean and nicely furnished/decorated. Lots of great places to eat nearby! Enjoyed a quick walk to the beach!
Linda, I am so happy you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for this generous review. I hope we see you again in the not too distant future.
Never using Home Away before it was a little nerve racking. When we pulled into the driveway it was exactly what we were looking for. The home is exactly as described. Communication was excellent everything went perfect during our stay. Had a great time and we are already looking forward to next year. If you want a perfect place for a family get-a-way this is it.
Your words are music to my ears. I am so delighted you enjoyed yourselves. It is really important that the place is somewhere I myself would want to stay - and I have high standards.
Thank you for choosing Chic’s Nest. I hope to have you back next year.
Chic's Beach is on the northern end of Virginia Beach near the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. A 23 mile bridge with two tunnels that takes you to the eastern shore where you will find rural life, charming villages, and an abundance of wildlife.
Virginia Beaches' City Center is about 9 minutes from Chic's Beach. It has cinemas, restaurants, and lots of shopping. There is a comedy club as well.
The traditional tourist resort is on the ocean front about 15 minutes away. You will find a very active night life, many gift stores, miniature golf, the boardwalk, and great restaurants. If you would like more action, the ocean front is the place to visit.
