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 Northeast 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.

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!

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over Labor Day weekend, we had arrived a little early and the owner allowed us to park in our given spot so we could walk around the area, when we arrived there was maintenance being done on our condo but as soon as it was done we were able to check in early. The owner was very pleasant to work with and we really enjoyed our stay. The condo was perfect size for us and was very clean and well kept!!! We also did not have the best weather while staying, except of course the last day when we were leaving. The owner did not have anyone checking in the day that we left so she let us have a late checkout so we could enjoy the sunshine a little before leaving! Overall a great experience and stay!!!

Great home in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home in the perfect location. The Kitchen is well-stocked and the patio is delightful. The property is only a block away from the beach and surrounded by shops and restaurants. We were able to walk everywhere. The owners are very hospitable and responsive. I would definitely stay here again.

In the Middle of the Action

  • 5 of 5

If this is your first time visiting Virginia Beach or your 10th, you'll love this location! Got all the way to beach and forgot something? No problem...you're just a short walk away from home (and Walgreens and lots of other stores). Virginia Beach does a great job of providing family fun, and we ran into live music, magicians, a marching band and tumblers on our walk around the neighborhood. It was great! If you're not bringing the family, there is plenty of night life and dancing, but we couldn't hear any of it from the Captain's Quarters. We rented a car, but we could have taken a ride share to/from the airport and walked the rest of the visit. We were concerned about having to bring towels and all paper products, but there were some supplies left over from previous travelers, so we really only needed to bring a few towels (we did laundry to keep them fresh), and we bought toilet paper. We look forward to staying here again in the future!

Fabulous location, cozy and clean apartment.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed here in early July and had an absolutely great time! The location could not be better... Super close to the beach, walkable to restaurants and entertainment.

The property was very clean and well kept. One of the owners was there when we arrived, and he was extremely friendly, helpful, and clearly wanted to make sure we would have a great stay. There is a little outdoor shower right outside the door that is handy for rinsing off all the sand when you come back from the beach. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and all utensils, and having a washer and dryer in the unit was immensely helpful.

We will definitely be back! I can't imagine ever staying anywhere else now that I know how great this little gem is.

Loved it! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We were there from June 27th-June 30th. Our family of 4 loved the cottage! The location was perfect, just about a block and a half from the beach. Walgreens and other restaurants nearby. The place was very clean and had all of the essentials. Beth was very helpful! I would definitely stay here again if in the VB area.
