Kip was a great host. The stay exceeded our expectations. Downtown VA Beach is a great place for families. The beach is a short walk and the neighborhood was awesome. We enjoyed the feel of the place and loved that bikes were onsite for use. We'd love to stay again soon. Thanks.

We really enjoyed this place!!! Kip and his team made us feel right at home with their hospitality. The frig was full of condiments, the washer/dryer and dishwasher were available for use and included the soap, there were tons of games to play and books to read, plenty of paper towels and toiletries and I could go on. They went above and beyond any of my expectations. I highly recommend this place!!!

Kip has an amazing eye for art, attention for detail and makes this house feel like you're at home. The house is set up in a thoughtful way for guests. Just a few examples: he has Alexa, games and toys for all ages, a fully stocked spice cabinet and usb charging stations at the bedside. it is 10 min from aquarium and 5 min to the beach .
