Michael was nothing but a gracious host from the moment I contacted him to the day we departed the property. Michael was able greet us upon arrival, as he made the trip to ensure the property met our expectations, which I most certainly can say it exceeded our expectations.
The home itself, which I state a home and not a house, due to the comfortable atmosphere and the amenities it provides, such as the large back yard with sitting area, grill, beach cart, outdoor shower, and the interior that gives way to enough personal space to accommodate all parties visiting. Knowing the area, I was a bit concerned of being directly off the inbound highway that leads to the waterfront but once in the home all noise fades away, not to mention the back of the house really is your own personal oasis after a long day of enjoying the beach and local activities.
The beach really is a short walk from the house and yet far enough away to avoid the heavy amounts of traffic seen during the weekend. The beach cart Michael has provided for ease of beach going was a huge help with small children and allowed the short walk to go by quickly. I generally prefer to be further up on the beach but did not mind the atmosphere brought on by the shops and hotels; however I did make the drive to 49th street to enjoy the sunrise with coffee and dog in tow.
As for the neighborhood, our cars were safe parked in the back and we had no problems while walking. The property is located between the main highway which brings about a high amount of traffic during peak hours but once again, it had no impact on the enjoyment of our vacation.
The experience was shared with my family, which had not yet visited the Atlantic and can now say they had the pleasure of their toes in the sand and cold waves on their backs, not to mention the local scallops we had on several occasions. In all, we did not want to leave and wished we had booked at least one more day to enjoy our time away!
Thank you again for sharing your little hideaway from the world, we shall enjoy all the moments and memories made!
My husband, friend and her finance traveled to Virginia beach for the long weekend. After a long drive we were extremely happy to arrive at this beautiful home. It had everything we needed and more. 2 gorgeous bedrooms, comfy living room with surround sound, amazing back yard for lounging ( it even had torches). Big plus was a fridge full of beer, wine on the counter and slushy drinks in the freezer!
The house is in an amazing location. Short walk to the beach. An even shorty bike ride if you use one of the four bikes provided. They were way more fun than we imagined. Stores are near, it is close to the highway and easy to find.
Mike was an amazing host. Very accommodating and flexible with check in and out times.
We had absolutely zero complains. We are already planning our next trip back.
Great place to stay for your vacation in VA!
Three of us stayed here for about 4 nights to attend a Springsteen concert at the nearby amphitheater and enjoy the nearby (walking distance) beach and boardwalk. Mike was an excellent host, stocking the house with plenty of towels, condiments, coffee, creamers...even beer and wine! We even had access to beach chairs, a cooler, bikes and a little cart to haul everything in. Unfortunately it was very windy the day we were able to go to the beach, so we didn't get to use them. After a lovely breakfast (lots of restaurants within walking distance) we tried to sit on the beach, but had to lay down on the towels to avoid the heavy winds. So we returned to the house and sat in the beautiful backyard, protected from the wind by the fence and enjoy the otherwise sunny day.
Everything in the kitchen and bathroom was well maintained, like new. Beds are very comfortable and the place was quiet. Even though it is located on a busy street, the backyard is quiet and no trouble sleeping.
We would highly recommend Mike's house if you are staying in the area.
