The space
The home was built in 1930 and has been painstakingly restored and updated to be one of the most charming and unique beach properties in Virginia. No modern cookie cutter beach house cheese here, this property is all about getting serious beach time then relaxing in style.

The owners have a store in Cape Charles VA that specializes in art and handicrafts curated from artisans around the world. Much of the art and decorations in the beach house are from the store. The house was built in 1930 by a sea captain and still retains the wheelhouse of a 19th Century tugboat as the 2nd story sunroom. The reclaimed wood is from an 18th century Eastern Shore farmhouse.

Guest access
Rental includes access to Fishing Rods, Kayaks and Paddle Board. Keyless Entry makes check in easy.

The Ocean View Fishing Pier and Restaurants are less than 5 mins walk up the sandy beach.

Other things to note
There is a shared laundry space. It is in the entry which is separated from the apartment by a lockable door. The laundry is also available for guest use too. We just ask that sand is thoroughly shaken out of items before use. Detergent pods are provided.

Location

Norfolk, Virginia, United States

Willoughby Spit is Norfolk's best kept secret. You will be amazed how private the beach is. There is no on street parking so only residents really use the beach.

While we’re right at the entrance to the Atlantic Ocean our beach has a North East exposure and we’re technically on the bay which means the water is mostly calm making it perfect for swimming. The sand falls of very gradually so you have plenty of shallow swimming, perfect for children.

The beach is also dog friendly during summer dogs are allowed access on the beach before 10am and after 6pm with a leash. Just have to pick up after them. In winter after Labor Day dogs are allowed to be on the beach anytime with or without a leash. We also have a sandy front yard dune that they can use any time of day.

We are only 2 mins from Interstate 64 which allows you to easily explore the region.
