Overview

About the property

2 Br Condo - Half Block To Ocean & Concert Stage - Sleeps 6

Stay in this renovated (2013) 2 Bedroom condo that sleeps 6. One-half block to 24th Street concert stage and the beach! Park your car and leave it! You can walk to everything & then some. Eat and enjoy the sun on patio furniture and two decks. Rinse off from the beach with outside shower.

Reviewers have called this a hidden gem because it is tucked away, hardly noticeable among the big hotels and commercial businesses. You can't beat this location! And the cottage is family-friendly. We don't allow pets or smoking inside as we do our best to offer you a clean, comfortable, and allergy-free stay.

Need more space to accommodate more people? We have a second condo available in this cottage also (2 BR, sleeps 6) - details can be found here - https://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p3918562

This condo is in a family-owned cottage located in the heart of the commercial activity of the oceanfront. This unit is all on the 1st floor level. Appliances include washer, dryer, stove, fridge, dishwasher & disposal. Stay here and enjoy a nice clean apartment - no worries!

Each bedroom has a double bed (also known as a full size bed), dresser, night stand and lamp with clean linens. There is a queen-size pull-out sofa bed in the living room. The kitchen is fully equipped for a group of six people. All you need to bring are your towels and wash cloths, paper products, toiletries, laundry detergent, sun protection products, and beach gear.

There is a set of patio furniture with umbrella where you can sit outside to enjoy the fresh air. (It's housed in the side room/laundry room) You can bring it outside or use it as an additional seating area for meals inside.

This home is the former Captain's residence of Virginia Beach's U.S. Coast Guard. This Coast Guard location has historical significance, well described and preserved in the Coast Guard Museum across the street.

About Jennings Family

This is the Jennings Family, descendants of Dr. W. Stanley Jennings, our patriarch, who owned this beach property since the 60s. He was well loved and highly regarded by his children and grandchildren who have banded together to restore this vacation rental property. He contributed greatly to the Hampton Roads area as a physician for over 50 years and is considered the founding father of Chesapeake General Hospital (now Chesapeake Regional Medical Center) in Chesapeake, VA.

Jennings Family purchased this condo in 1960

Why Jennings Family chose Northeast Virginia Beach

This property has been in our family since the 60s. Too many memories and stories to tell. Recently, we decided to make it as nice as we could, so it fits well with all the nice restaurants and other surrounding activities.

What makes this condo unique

You don't even have to leave the front yard to hear the live bands! Your own personal concert, beautiful beach, nice places to eat AND you're staying in an apartment with brand new flooring, furniture and appliances. You can walk back to your apartment to use the bathroom instead of using the public restrooms.

GREAT place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just loved staying at the house! There was much more room than a hotel at a fraction of the cost. Clean, quiet and close to pretty much everything. Especially the BEACH! Literally a short block away. Would definitely stay here again. Our kids loved it as well.

Excellent location: everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a 2 week vacation and every day we admired this rental. It was perfect location to all the beach activities and to the freeway for those activities away from the beach. The kitchen had everything we needed, the washer and dryer were very large for our large beach towels. We would stay here again and again.

Wonderful condo super close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay here. The condo was really comfortable and felt like a home away from home. It is literally a 1/2 block from the beach, which made it easy to walk there and back with kids. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay here again!

Super Quaint!

  • 5 of 5

We came to VB for a concert and added a couple of extra days to enjoy the beach. The house is very close to everything and very comfortable. The Jenning's family is excellent to work with and communicated perfectly throughout the entire process. Thanks again!

The boardwalk at Virginia Beach's oceanfront is a wide, well-kept cement walk from 1st Street to 40th St. It is only a half block from this cottage. Have a bike? Bring it (and your bike lock) and enjoy the bike path beside the boardwalk. Nothing like a cool walk or ride in the early morning or evening to enjoy the sights and sounds of Virginia Beach.

The 24th street Concert Stage has live music nightly during the summer and the cottage is so close you can enjoy the music from your private deck. There are a dozen different places to eat within a block of this location.

The Coast Guard Station Museum is another relic within short walking distance. Learn how this cottage was used by the Coast Guard in the early 1900s.
