We rented this unit for a week the first part of October 2013. it is a nice property, well maintained and easy to find. It is close to VB and an easy drive to lots of great places to visit. The unit is nicely decorated and the furnishings and kitchen appliances are very nice. The unit includes a space in the parking garage which is handy. The beach is great. This unit looks out on to the back bay and is a nice natural view. The beds were good and there are TV's in both bedrooms and the living area. All work well. We were there during a rather ugly weather run and spent one whole day doing nothing but TV.
The drive from the Norfolk airport is an easy run, even more so if you have a GPS. Less than an hour for us, but it was near 8PM when we landed.
It is a very easy drive to VB. It is also easy access to the other sights of the area, Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown. Lucky us the shut down was in place while we were there so some of the sites were closed. You are 40-50 minutes from the very large outlet mall in Williamsburg which is worth the trip.
We have rented condo's for the last 10 years in many parts of the country and this one is managed a bit differently than any other we have rented. And it may have been because of the time of the year also. We had to pay $25 extra to have the beds made up on our arrival. They also advise you many basic items they do not provide, bathroom paper products, dish towels, garbage bags, etc. So we did stop and purchase all of the needed product on our drive from the airport. Oddly enough when we got to the unit many of these items were on hand in the unit. No big deal, we just left all the extra stuff for the next renter.
I was also taken back by the fact they do not accept credit card payment for deposits or final rent payment. They will for a large service charge. They will take a bank transfer. Never encountered this before.
The only real issue we had was the large population of sizeable spiders. Not real attractive. We did solve the issue for our deck by buying spray and exterminating them. It is an issue they need to maybe better deal with on a regular basis.
I would give this property a very good rating. Comfy, easy to find, great area, and a bargain price during the time we were there.
