About Marida Hines

We are a professional couple. This is the home we plan to retire to - so we take care of it with love!

Marida Hines purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Marida Hines chose Bay View

This cozy classic Ocean View beach cottage is nestled under a collection of live oaks with a porch facing the beach, a private trail over the dune, and a delightful dune-top bench for morning coffee. Situated on Ocean View Avenue, the house has easy access to local attractions while still providing a private, quiet beach getaway. In our recent renovation, we've tried to find the perfect balance between retaining this delightful cottage's original charm while providing all modern conveniences.

We loved this charming fully stocked cottage!!! We will definitely rent it again.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is so tastefully decorated and charming. I love the storybook of Zoey & the cottage renovovation left for guests to read. The beach is right there and the cottage is stocked with plenty of beach chairs, beach towels, and boogie boards. We enjoyed the large porch when we needed a break from the beach. We liked being on the Chesapeake bay with less wind and calmer water for standup paddle boarding. Just 1 mile away is a place that rented jet skis and paddle boards. If you like gorgeous sunsets every night and long walks on the beach this is the place to stay. Cooking was so easy with such a well stocked kitchen and a grill that works. The owners have thought of everything from games, books to read to any imaginable item you would need meal preparation. Great for casual entertaining. A big thank you to the owners. We loved our stay!!!!

I feel so fortunate to have stumbled upon Marida's property. Any expectations far exceeded anything that could have been thought of. Close to airport and many attractions. Coffee on beach every morning then entertainment between Norfolk and Virginia Beach - back to the VERY peaceful beach to end the day. There's a fabulous Italian restaurant just 1 mile from cottage. We really did not want to leave and will definitely go back to this cottage. Thank you Marida for providing such a beautiful comfortable place to stay

Excellently Stay

  • 5 of 5

Great home, walk out to the beach. Beautiful back porch. Excellent for families, stayed with our two toddlers (2 and 3) and there were plenty of beach toys to keep them entertained. Kitchen has everything you need to cook any meal. Best equipped kitchen I’ve seen in a vacation rental. Great quiet location on the beach. Would recommend a visit in-season or out of season. We hope to visit again in the summer. Marida is a great host who goes the extra mile to make sure you have a great stay!

The perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked into the cottage until we locked the door to leave everything was wonderful. The cottage was spotlessly clean, every room tastefully beach style decorated. The Kitchen had everything one could wish for and the entire cottage felt comfortable and welcoming. A bench on the sand dunes , the dolphins swimming by, the sunrises, weather and everything made our stay memorable, Thank you Mirada for thinking of everything and keeping in touch. I highly recommend this perfect "Getaway"

Located on Ocean View beach overlooking the beautiful Chesapeake Bay. Residential neighborhood with a quiet beach with limited public access. Great restaurants, nearby shopping & movie theaters, easy access from Rt. 64. Tons of things do if you tire of lounging on the porch or beach: Stroll the boardwalk at Virginia Beach; dine or sightsee on the long, long Ocean View Fishing Pier; view denizens of the deep at Virginia Aquarium; step into the past at Colonial Williamsburg and Yorktown, play at Busch Gardens theme park or grab an ice cream and stroll Norfolk Zoo. Do some inside beachcombing in the antiques shops or get your culture fix at Norfolk's museums, ethnic restaurants, and concert halls.
