About Jennings Family

Our entire extended family has had a hand in restoring and preserving this uniquely situated house. The home was originally purchased by our father, W. Stanley Jennings, a Chesapeake, Virginia family physician. It is now maintained by his children and grandchildren. We offer this cherished home to you. When you share it with us, it provides a common cause which strengthens the bonds of our family. Thank you.

Jennings Family purchased this apartment in 1968

Why Jennings Family chose Virginia Beach

If you're looking for a cozy getaway that is close to all the action, then this is the place for you. Our family has always loved the beach and how close this house is to the beach.

It is located in the "old beach" area of Virginia Beach, which is in the center of resort area activity. It's just the right mix of nostalgia with the most modern in family adventure.

This home was once the living quarters of the captain of the Virginia Beach Coast Guard. The Coast Guard Museum, which sits across the street, is a local historical remembrance of the old Coast Guard station that was located on Atlantic Ave and 24th Street.

What makes this apartment unique

From the parking area in front, vacationers make their way down the short boardwalk to the back, where this secluded apartment awaits. Open the door to meet a bedazzled, colorful octopus, "Grandpa's Revenge". It's to remind you that you are here to enjoy the beach.

The apartment includes all new appliances, washer/dryer, refrigerator, stove, HD-TV and dishwasher. It's equipped with a microwave oven, toaster, coffee maker, and a fully equipped kitchen and has cable and secure WIFI.

There is an open floor plan, a kitchen with island and dining options. French doors open out to a secluded private deck. Some parts of the captain's quarters have been preserved as accents for this totally renovated ground floor apartment.

You are so close to the 24th Street stage that you can hear the nightly concerts from your deck. You are right in the middle of the beach action, yet secluded.

The new I-Fly skydiving adventure is also visible from the deck. There are 12 restaurants, the beach, an outdoor concert stage and countless adventures a half block from your doorstep, or you can just hang out and let it go on all around you while nestled in your tranquil private oasis.

Immaculate, nicely renovated, very conveniently located property with all the amenities of home!

  • 5 of 5

This property was extremely clean and met all of the needs for our group of 6. We loved how close restaurants, stores, and the beach were. It's a 1 minute walk to any and all of these! The outdoor shower was perfect to clean off after a day in the beach. The beds and linens were comfortable and fresh. The hosts were incredibly kind! We will most definitely stay here again!

This was a nice condo with a very convenient location. We parked the car on arrival and were able to walk to everything we wanted to go to in the beach area.

I loved this rental, my siblings and friends enjoyed lounging and cooking on the stove. We got a chance to watch The Wizard of Oz the last night we stayed and it was just an overall great experience. The house was as it was explained and it was nice and clean. The weather was cloudy for the most part, but the sun decided to come out Saturday so we went out on the beach and pet the horses and got ice cream. Overall, a great time and would love to stay here again!

Car: not necessary

The 'old beach' area of Virginia Beach is in the center of resort area activity. Just the right mix of nostalgia with the most modern in family adventure, all within walking distance of this historic location.

Within a block you can eat at a dozen different places, play jungle golf, attend live nightly concerts, experience indoor skydiving, jump in the ocean, lay on the beach, check out the old coast guard station or the firehouse. You forgot to bring something, so Walgreens is next door.

You will forget that you brought your car, because you just don't need it. Maybe you'll be tempted to explore by bike instead. Breakfast at the Honeybee pancake house or Doc Taylor's. Try the indoor sky diving across the street after gathering your courage at CP Shuckers. It won't be long before you've forgotten what you did for a living.

You are gonna love this vacation!
