  • Sleepless in Norfolk


    Located in a mixed media, residential area~ with homes, apts, industrial sites 5 min by car to the marina. Not a home for mixed aged families as everything is by steep stairs-the front steps, the bedrooms are all up another steep stairwell, the garage is down and up another steep flight of stairs. While the house was spotless, the sheets were not washed on any of the beds. We figure that if we were paying a cleaning fee we should at least have clean sheets. These sheets did not smell or feel fresh. Also when one family member opened the kitchen door into the garage, he was greeted by a giant “ Trespassing sign- "You are being watch but security cameras” which begged the question as to whether the entire stay was under surveillance. No, we would not stay again- the lack of clean sheets was the ultimate deal breaker.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi MC, the homeowners were surprised to read your review, as they are accustomed to providing 5-star experiences, and would like to clarify the following:
    - Thank you for choosing to stay in our Norfolk, Virginia home and leaving a review, as guest feedback is vitally important to us and the success of our vacation rental business.
    - There is a disclaimer in the listing that mentions the presence of stairs to the home. It's important to note that the elevated entry is due to the beach area's occasional flooding, which is a requirement of the city. We are sorry if you didn't see this information and if it caught you off guard.
    - The linens are managed by a professional cleaning and linen company, and they are changed after every guest to ensure a clean and comfortable stay. We regularly receive bills for this service and take the cleanliness of our home seriously.
    - While the area is mixed in terms of property types, it's an up-and-coming and desirable place to live. There's no industrial presence, and it's undergoing significant new construction, making it an exciting area for many.
    - The "No Trespassing" sign in the garage area deters unauthorized access to our personal items. There are no interior cameras in the home, which would violate city ordinances. Exterior cameras are for security, as stated in the listing.

    We regret that your stay didn't meet your expectations but appreciate your feedback. We aim to provide a comfortable and safe environment for all guests. If you have more concerns or questions, please feel free to contact us. Your comments assist us in enhancing our guest experience.

  • Splendid


    I am OCD in cleanliness. This house is very well kept, pretty, accessible to the beach, and so appealing to the eye.

    Communication was exemplary. I loved the house. Off street parking is important to me and I definitely had it here. My sheets were nice and soft. The dishes and glasses were very clean. Little added touches that I loved were the swings in the backyard, the kayaks and bikes. I love options and my wish was granted here. I will definitely repeat my stay here again. Book this beauty and you will not be disappointed.

  • Great stay


    Spacious and comfortable home in convenient area. Breakfast at Karla's and beach were just a short walk up the st. Cooked family dinner with ease thanks to the well stocked kitchen and enjoyed morning and evenings on the backdoor patio. Great home, thank you!

  • Large Space and Good Location


    We liked how big the property was and how close it was to the beach. It was a good space for our group of 7 (4 adults and 3 kids). Beds were comfy.

  • Great House


    This is a great house with a fantastic outdoor deck. They provided corn hole and the ladder game which we enjoyed. The house was very clean and nicely equipped, making it easy to prepare meals at the house.
