Our aesthetic is eclectic with a definite mid-century pull. Kip's core values include Give a Hoot Don't Pollute and he comes from a family that loved themed rooms. These manifest themselves in reclaimed furniture and decorating themes involving ancestry and creative outlets. Rudy's core values include Good Design and Efficiency and he comes from a midwestern family that prizes self sufficiency. These manifest themselves in the organization of our spaces and our building some of our own furniture and fixtures.
Kip purchased this House in 2012
Why Kip chose Northeast Virginia Beach
We bought the house because Kip's Mom and Dad had been living in the Tidewater region for over 20 years and we wanted them to be able to be closer to the beach whenever they wanted to breathe in some of that fresh ocean air. We chose Shadowlawn in particular because of the tall trees, the neighborly feel, and the walking distance restaurants, cafe's, bars, and of course - the Beach! We have another house nearby that we all stay in when The SaltBox is rented out so we're on call if you need anything during your stay.
What makes this House unique
We loved the 80's lodgy feel of the home and thought we could accentuate its lofty character with modern elements as well as reclaimed materials to make the house have both an updated feel as well as the comfort and warmth that comes from a home built in that time frame. The one bedroom on main floor, 3 upstairs, backdeck and nice yard were the closers for us in terms of features.
Great House and services
Me, my wife and my 3 teenagers (15,17,19 years hold) loved so much this House, we felt like home.
No others words than PERFECT ! the House, WIFI, location and neighborhood, Communication with the Owner was so helpful, we traveled from Montreal Canada to VA, we could not have found better place to stay. Thanks Kip for your simplicity !
The house is great. Comfortable and plenty of room and full of stock of the necessities.
Fantastic week at the Salt Box! Property was nice and clean, Loved all the tips written in the kitchen. Owner was prompt with messaging and answering any questions we had. Fantastic experience all around!
I was very pleased with my stay! The house is very comfortable, attention to detail, and well supplied - from paper towels, kitchen supplies, to shampoo and conditioner. Thanks for the bikes too. We had a good use out of them!
Wonderful beach home!
My family of four visited for Patriotic Festival. The home was quirky, homey and a perfect place for a beach vacation. It is walking distance to the oceanfront. We took our bikes and rode around the boardwalk and to dinner. Will definitely we staying again next year!
We really enjoyed the house. It was very clean and well kept and we had everything we needed.
