About this listing
We strive to make sure you receive the best possible experience at a very fair price. This is one of two apartments we have. If this one is unavailable please look at our other one.
Stay in our fully furnished 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath waterfront apartment. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking utensils, dishes, coffee pot, and microwave. All linens are included.
The apartment also has cable tv and high speed internet.
We have a beautiful view of Willoughby Bay, a 100 ft dock in the back yard for fishing, crabbing, and simply enjoying the sun. The Ocean is a short walk from our building.
Willoughby Beach is an easy five minute walk and is so much more peaceful than Virginia Beach. Downtown Hampton and Downtown Norfolk are both convenient to get to. Williamsburg and Virginia Beach are both within 40 minutes. There is a very nice neighborhood seafood grill at the end of the street, next to Rebel Marine Services, called The Sunset Grill. Oceanview Pier is two miles away. If you like to walk you can get there by walking on the beach or on Oceanview Avenue. A shopping center with a grocery store, family dollar, ABC store, and several restaurants is just down the street from the Oceanview Pier.

Please plan to leave the apartment the way you find it upon arrival.
• NO Smoking!
Your $500 deposit will be used to pay for professional smoke removal cleaning service if there is any hint or sign of anyone smoking in the apartment upon your departure.
• NO large or wild parties.
This location is not suitable for events. The apartment is in a small apartment building where other people live on a full time basis. Please be considerate of them and the fact that during the week they have to go to work in the morning.
• Leave the TV cable connection as is.
Disconnecting the cable from the TV causes problems for the next guest & costs money for me to call someone in to put it back together for other people to enjoy the TV. This will force me to ask Airbnb to keep a portion of your deposit to pay for the service call.
• White towels, hand towels, and washcloths are for showering only.
Please do not use them to clean or take them outside of the apartment. There are rags in the pantry for cleaning.
• Colored towels may be used on the deck and taken to beach.
Please do not use for cleaning.
• Do not rearrange the furniture
• Do not remove mattress or pillow protectors
• Towels and linens are inventoried. Missing towels and linens will be cause for a portion of your deposit to be withheld to cover the cost of replacing them.
Over 90% of my guests leave the apartment as clean as they found it. Your efforts help me avoid the need to increase the cleaning cost by making sure the apartment really is as clean as it was when you arrived. Thank you!

1.Strip the beds, put all soiled bed, bath, and kitchen linens in the laundry room. Wash the first load and if possible start it drying, start the second (if there is one) load washing.

This is a great apartment in a wonderful location. It is clean, fully stocked, spacious, and has an outstanding view of Willoughby Bay. You can walk to the uncrowded beaches in Oceanview and you are a short drive from everything in Virginia Beach and Norfolk.
Steve's place is a at a great location, just steps to a dock where you can appreciate the bay and 10 minutes' walk to the beach, which is very quiet and nice for swimming. The apt is very clean and well equipped. Supermarkets and great restaurants are within 10 minutes' drive. Definitely recommend this place!
This is the second time we've rented this apartment for out of town friends who are visiting. It is as pictured and clean. We all love the location with the beautiful view of the water and easy access to the interstate. The a neighborhood beach and a public boat launch are less than a mile away.
Found the apartment clean and welcoming. Great neighborhood. Very convenient location.
Decided to extend our stay, the place and Steve were so welcoming. Can't say enough good things about Steve and his place. Thank you!
Couldn't have been happier with Steve and his place. Every amenity was provided (including Netflix, flowering plant on the dining room table, coffee and creamer). Location is convenient to everywhere because it is right next to the freeway. HIGHLY recommend.
Steve Hix was wonderful throughout our dealings. We couldn't has asked for a more accommodating host.

About the Host, Steve
I love to travel & am thrilled to be part of the Airbnb community. If I am unable to get to your part of the world, hopefully you can visit mine. As for me, I like a good glass of red wine in the evening as much as I like a robust coffee in the morning.
I have used Airbnb in Italy, Dubai, Kenya, Japan, Nevis West Indies, & the States. Its an awesome concept that enables a much better experience & value than a hotel.
Hopefully you will find my apartments spotless & enjoy yourself minutes away from great beaches as well as all the History in this area. If there is anything I can do to make your trip more memorable, please do not hesitate to ask. I do my best to respond ASAP.
