About Lisa Freeman

I am from Michigan (former Air Force), & husband Charlie (retired Salesmen), a true local, born and raised in Hampton. We live in Jensen Beach Florida and Virginia. We love to travel. Beaches and cities are full of good times on the east coast living. Norfolk especially we love because it has great museums, zoo, botanical gardens, great architecture downtown and loads of unique restaurants. Bay is huge and right around the corner is the oceanfront. Largest naval Base makes for some great site seeing too. There is always something to see in Hampton Roads.

Lisa Freeman purchased this house in 2011

Why Lisa Freeman chose Willoughby Spit

It's all about the water! Once you arrive on this strip of land that juts out into the waters of Tidewater area, you feel as if you've landed on an island, but with easy to access to get around. Norfolk also has great museums and some interesting architecture downtown and loads of unique restaurants. The bay is huge and right around the corner is the oceanfront. Largest naval Base makes for some great site seeing too. There is always something going on outside to watch on the water here.

What makes this house unique

The house is situated on waterfront, and central for exploring the area. The kitchen with many variety of dishes You can make a very large meal for your family. Cooler, high chair, pack and play, beach umbrellas,, and beach chairs, beach toys included. Just let us know if you need anything at all!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the best house we have rented at a beach. Well equipped, clean and the beach was great for the kids. Everyone loved it. It is semi handicapped friendly with the chair lift for my grandmother. She enjoyed her time with the grandkids and there was space to spread out.

The best ever....

  • 5 of 5

Could not have asked for anything better...... was able to spend time with my children and grandchildren without any problems. We actually had crabs for dinner two different nights that we cought ourselves. Lisa was always available to give/suggest anything that we needed. We had access to the washer/dryer, so that I only had very little laundry to do when I got back to Georgia. The beds/sheets were comfy to the point that my husband had me take a picture of the tag on the bed sheets so I could buy some for out bed at home. And the “private” beach was awesome... I could watch the little ones from the house deck.

Just what we were looking for for graduation weekend!

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for our needs. We were down in Norfolk to celebrate Old Dominion graduation and wanted a house for family of mixed ages rather than multiple hotel rooms. The location worked for us as it was at the northern part of Norfolk away from the Va Beach traffic, yet right near the highway access to any where we wanted to go.

The House was very comfortable and roomy and well supplied for our stay. The neighborhood goose greeted us in the morning so if you are a late sleeper, you may not appreciate this feature. The Kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms were very clean and comfortable, but the ceiling fans and windows jams are in need of good dusting . I will attribute it to our early season visit and perhaps we arrived just prior to spring cleaning. We would definitely stay her again and wish we had found it earlier since our daughter spent 6 years of undergrad and graduate studies in Norfolk.

Comfortable beach cottage

  • 4 of 5

This beachfront home was perfect for our needs, as we had 5 adults and three teenagers. The view is great from the family room and large deck and kayaks provided entertainment for all. The home is seeing a little wear on the furniture, carpets, and linens but It was clean enough and beds were comfortable. A few extra amenities would be welcome, such as soap and paper products in the kitchen and bathrooms. The home has easy access to the highway and bridge to Hamoton, as we traveled their daily to the sports complex. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would return to this location.
