Really liked this location and the cottage is cute although the layout is a little odd (bedrooms between the kitchen and dining/living room so you have to walk down he hall with your food to eat at the bigger table. We decided to rent a house instead of staying in a hotel because we thought it was worth not having...

Management response:

Wow. I’m saddened by the review, especially when it was posted almost a year after your stay in August 2016. My email communications with the wife indicated everyone was having a great time at the cottage, keeping busy and catching up on reading.

About the neighborhood
Flamingo Cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood just south of the entrance to Fort Story. It's a wonderful neighborhood in which to walk or bike and the neighbors are super friendly. Virginia Beach has much to offer besides the beach, and Flamingo Cottage is positioned as a fabulous home base. The cottage is a true beach cottage, but with all modern amenities. It's really dear and you will certainly enjoy your stay!
