About the property

Two Bedroom/One Bath Beach Side Bungalow just a 2 minute walk to the beach

We are offering our unique and rustic historic carriage house. Built in the early 1900's and the home of one of the early ice delivery businesses in the Historic Ocean View section of Norfolk, on the Chesapeake Bay. Our unique bungalow is a 2 to 3 minute walk to the beautiful, wide and expansive beaches of the Bay. These beaches are perfect for little children as the waves usually are very small and the water is very shallow. The fishing in this area is very good from the surf as well.

Our unit is very nicely decorated and is perfect for a small family. It can also accommodate some larger groups. We have off street parking available for two vehicles. We have a fenced in grassy yard area that is perfect for walking dogs or allowing them some room to walk and play.

Our main bedroom which opens to the bathroom, contains a very comfortable queen size bed. The second bedroom has two very comfortable twin beds.

We have a large living room that has a gas fireplace for beauty as well as heat in the colder months. Included is WiFi and a 55" Smart TV. We also have a futon that opens to a full size bed and can easily accommodate two people. The unit can handle six people easily. There is one bathroom with a shower. We have an outdoor patio for leisure to enjoy the very pretty outdoors along with nice shade. We do allow pets with an additional fee for cleaning, however, please keep your pets off of the furniture and bedding. We want to keep it beautiful and clean for our future guests.

We do allow outdoor smoking in the yard and on our patio. Thank you for considering a stay in our Beautiful Historic Bungalow! We have added an extra rollout twin bed to handle one more little one. We also have a Pack & Play for your infant to sleep in as well as a high chair.

As this property was constructed very early in the 1900's you will notice some very unique architectural features. The bathroom is unfortunately rather small, so the shower may be a bit cramped for larger people. There is a renter in the above apartment, so please no parties.This unique unit will open your eyes to architecture as it existed around the turn of the century. Enjoy!

Charming, local neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our long weekend stay here! We met the neighbors who were lovely and gave us some great recommendations on attractions and dining in the area. The house itself was very rustic, clean and well decorated. We really enjoyed ourselves and hope to visit again soon!

The ioiiling I'm I i8ii

Lower floor apartment. needs renovations, sound proofing, living room smelled.

  • 1 of 5

I rented this place about 1 week before arrival. Upon arrival I noted an odor (cat) to the owner in living room (TV area) Owner stated never had cats in 7 months he has owned. We took a walk to the beach and came back... odor was still strong, I messaged owner and told him we were unable to stay in the present condition due to odor was making my wife sick.

I felt that the owner should consider a refund as not in rentable condition due to the smell.

The recent heat may have made the smells worse especially if the property hadn't been aired out for a while.

The smell was in the main room where the large screen TV is located.

The property seemed dirty and was poorly lit.

Owner only response was that he had not had cats in since he owned it.

Not in the listing:

This is an apartment. Conversations upstairs are loud downstairs.

Shower has wooden floor.

Bathroom is very small.

Listing noted towels and wash cloths provided. They were old, not matching and only one washcloth.

Kitchen is rather small and outdated.

Spare room is small. Extra Linens were dumped on the floor in the closet in spare room.

In some places the ceiling had water spots.

With some serious tlc, getting rid of the odor and sound proofing this could be a decent rental in the future.

Bathroom is very small and located in the main bedroom.

Location is more like 3 long blocks from the beach access.

As stated above, we were unable to stay in the present condition. 1 star is the lowest I can go.

Car: recommended

Our Historic little Bungalow is located very close to the beaches. The neighborhood is very family oriented with beautiful homes and side streets for walking, jogging or bike riding. The water here is very popular for surf fishing and very productive for trout, spot, croaker, blues and stripers! The Ocean View Pier is just a mile or so down the road and offers the chance to catch some really big fish - fees apply.

The neighborhood is nice and quiet and so is our unit. It is beautifully decorated and we strive to keep it very clean, well stocked an fresh so that our guests will love it and come back to see us again.
