About Lisa Freeman

We find the water here as good as it gets after traveling extensively through U.S. Tidewater area has many activities to keep our interest. Norfolk also has great museums and some interesting 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 going on outside to watch on the water here.

Lisa Freeman purchased this house in 2014

Why Lisa Freeman chose Norfolk

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 centrally for exploring the area. The kitchen, everything in great condition and everything you could or would possible need. Your can make a very large meal for your family. We are available should you need anything. cooler, high chair, pack and play, beach umbrellas,, and beach chairs, beach toys are all free and included. Just let us know if you need anything at all!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great place for a family get away!

Great place for our reunion! Thank you!

  • 4 of 5

I would definitely come here again. Not good for folks who have trouble with stairs. I just wish the weather had cooperated more. But overall, it was the perfect place for our get together. All the amenities of home, except a washcloth or bath soap. And a visit from the ants - which was handled right away with the help of the owners. Don't hesitate to book this property - you will be happy you chose it! Thank you, Charlie and Lisa.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your 50th high school reunion! We do provide a chair lift for the stairs if needed. it takes you up, however the 13 stairs are usually not a problem for the majority. The elevated view is well worth the 13 stairs.

Very nice accommodations.

  • 4 of 5

Had our own private beach that was well kept. Great if you have young kids. Just know that you are across from the naval base. Very cool to watch all the helicopters in training but it can be noisy at first after a day or so we didn't even notice. Clean and lots of room.

SIMPLY AMAZING!

  • 4 of 5

This house is all that is depicted and more! We were so pleased with its location, its functionality, as well as hospitable owner. Lisa went out of her way to make us feel at home. She was attentive and cooperative, and easy to deal with. The house is spacious, well equipped and beyond comfortable. We already can't wait to book for next year. Book this rental and you will NOT be disappointed.

Best stay ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

We could tell by the surrounding neighborhood seaside area that we were missing out by visiting in the month of March, but despite the chill in the air, we truly were kept comfy and cozy in this amazing home. Although we didn't have any children to take advantage of the bunk beds, any kid would be happy for such accommodations and the all master-sized bedrooms provided ample space and privacy in the event of "too much of a good thing" (anyone spending extended time with extended family members). Upstairs bedroom doesn't have a door to it so any noise upstairs could potentially be heard downstairs. But otherwise, LOTS to do in the area, LOTS to see and of course, breath-taking sunrises/sunsets over the water and ample parking spaces. House is set back from the road and the driveway is easily missed the first time around, but after that, you'll be fine. Norfolk International Airport brings you right there and Richmond International is a little over an hour away. Some noise from the military base across the water but nothing overbearing and certainly not anything to complain about. Great place for R&R and we'd gladly stay here again!
