About James Short

We are a family of four and we really love Virginia Beach and everything it has to offer! Retired from the Military in 2006 and decided to make this our home. Virginia Beach is one of the most well kept secrets. There is always something going on here and if you would like info on anything, please let us know. We would be happy to help you in any way possible.

James Short purchased this house in 2005

Why James Short chose Tidewater - Hampton Roads

Whether you are here for business, sporting events, vacation, house hunting, military traveling/reporting or just visiting family, this property puts you in the middle of the action during the day and allows you to enjoy a nice night of sleep in the evening. We want your stay to be enjoyable, memorable, and have you as a returning guest in the future.

What makes this house unique

The beautiful recessed lighting and arches that lead into the den. Small cozy feeling of a smaller house in a great neighborhood. No climbing stairs.

wonderful! had everything we needed and more!

  • 5 of 5

we have rented many vacation homes across the country and the little things that owners do really make a huge difference! The home had coffee!!! loved not having to run out for coffee after a delayed flight and late arrival! from coffee to cleaning products and laundry soap may seem like a little thing but it really isn't available and I appreciate that they have it along with paper towels AND toilet paper! i have stated in some very nice places that didn't have these items! ok past that. The house is clean and has plenty of linens. We enjoyed the large living area and played lots of games and watched movies! cooking was like being at home because they had EVERYTHING! Thank you for the time you put into making this feel like a home away from home! i liked being close to everything with out the stress and high cost of staying at the beach!

Great Vacation House! Clean! Spacious! Excellent Central Location! AMAZING Value for your $!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this ranch home. It's surprisingly spacious when you walk in. Lots of room for your family to move about without having to step on anyone's toes. The house is clean and has ALL of the amenities you'll need for your stay (linens, towels, dish soap, laundry, garbage bags, toilet paper, hand soap...everything!). The A/C works very well...and the house even includes ceiling fans in every room to ensure your stay is comfortable. There's plenty of seating (sofas, love seats, two tables and lots of chairs).

The house is conveniently located - close to the Lynnhaven Mall, Walmart, beach (10 mins drive). It's a quiet street with friendly neighbours.

The owner is very responsive and flexible.

We would definitely rent this home again if we ever vacation in Virginia Beach.

Some things to consider:

The house only has one bathroom, but if you can make that work, it's all good.

The house doesn't have a pool, but I guess there is always the beach!

It would be good to have a phone in the house so you could make local calls.

The BBQ is a charcoal one - a propane one would be more convenient.

There's only parking for one vehicle, but street parking right in front of the house is available.

Other than that...great little house and definitely worth the money.

Very neat, clean property inside and out. Spacious inside, with lots of room for sitting and eating

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here for many reasons: the property was updated, clean, and very family-friendly. The washer and dryer came in handy, and the dish-washer was an added nicety. The owner responded promptly to a small electrical problem, even though it was late at night. We would return. We would recommend this property to those who wished to be in the area, but not necessarily on the water. It was very close to most any fast food, grocery store, or other businesses you would want to frequent. The neighborhood was quiet, as well.

Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The house had everything we need for a great week in Virginia Beach.

The plus/minus is that with traffic its a 10-15 minute drive to the beach BUT that was kinda nice because it is away enough that you aren't dealing with all the touristy issues. We LOVED it!! It is a quiet street so it was very restful.

Nice backyard for the kids to play!

The kitchen had everything we needed,so we could cook in quite a few meals.

I really can't say enough good about it!

I could easily see us staying here again!!

Great VB rental!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at the City Blue Ranch while visiting friends and family over the holidays. What a great rental! Clean, roomy, and had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and there is ample comfortable couch space. Two of my top priorities for any vacation rental! Wifi, Xbox/DVD, and DirecTV with ALL channels were great for when we were lounging around the house. And the open living room/family room area and big backyard were great for my active young son to run around. We had fun visiting the playground at the Bow Creek Rec Center and the playground and skate park at Mt. Trashmore Park, both just a few minutes away. We also visited the oceanfront resort area to walk on the boardwalk and play on the beach. City Blue Ranch is in the perfect location. Close to I-264 and the oceanfront, but in a nice quiet neighborhood away from the congested tourist areas. We will definitely be staying again the next time we are in town.
