Beach and Nature Paradise where the Chesapeake Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean
About Ralph Ricardo
Retired Navy Captain and business owner, grew up in the area and stayed after Navy because I love it. My wife of 32 years shares duties with the property. She hails from south Texas and is interested in English Bulldog rescue, and loves the beach also. Two college graduate kids have flown the coop. We are committed to making your visit as enjoyable as possible.
Ralph Ricardo purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Ralph Ricardo chose Northeast Virginia Beach
The beach is steps away, no roads to cross, and it features calm surf without the boisterous crowds at the oceanfront. And unlike the oceanfront you are steps from beautiful First Landing State Park with hiking and bike trails; an incredible nature experience. All furnishing are brand new (spring 2016). This property has been in the family almost 50 years but condo was built in 2005.

Four teachers on a weekend getaway had a fabulous time at the Dunes at First Landing. We only had limited sunshine, but we didn’t care. We happily borrowed the beach cart provided, loaded it with our things and the provided chairs and umbrella and headed over the dune to the most perfect beach! Limited people, clean, and plenty warm enough to wade out several yards! Back at the house, we used their outdoor shower, and left the sand behind. The seashore themed appointments were lovely. Sandy and Ralph left us a dish of candy, k-cups of coffee, and a book of things to do in the area. The beds were super comfortable (I even noted the make of my mattress as I am fixing to buy one. Yep, that comfy!) The kitchen level closet even had games for our rainy day. (By the way, we added the beach scene puzzle to the pile!) overall, a lovely experience! Our students will thank you for sending us back rested! Perfect!
Bringing Family Together
What an amazing home to spend time with family and celebrate accomplishments. Ralph and Sandy provided us with an amazing home and atmosphere. The short stroll to the beach was great and all the extra amnesties that were part of the rental like the buggy to carry all the beach gear as well as the toys, bikes, chairs and towels they had available let us relax that much more.
The decor of the home was so welcoming and bright. I loved all the light and spacious rooms. This home allowed everyone to spend time together and enjoy peaceful moments alone.
But honestly, our hosts were the best part. They provided fast and informative communication and they make you feel welcomed. We are so grateful they shared their home with us.
