The space
The cottage is very secluded, and there are only few houses on this paradise. We always keep the place very clean and run the UV light between guests. We take extra steps to clean to make sure the place is safe and clean before new guests checking in. Safety is our priority. Thanks for your support!

We have registered the business with the city of Norfolk, and the city strictly only allows 2 guests each stay since the place has only one bedroom. Please help us to follow the rule. Thank you!

We have used a part of the earnings to put in an oyster reef around the cove. This will help to improve the quality of the water in Chesapeake Bay in the long run. Thanks for your stays and many thanks to The Elizabeth River Project. Please check the photos.

Norfolk: According to Travelandleisure Magazine, top 20 America’s favorite cities in 2017 were rated, and Norfolk has made number 1 this year. It was number 4 in 2016. The cottage is a nice private vacation home right on the water. It is very spacious. We offer free wifi internet and cable TV with HBO. It has a great Bluetooth sound bar for movies and music. Sunrise is beautiful over the dock. Our guests love having coffee and watching the sunrise from the dock. Sometime, you can see dolphins right from the dock too. Depends on the time of the year, there are lots of different kinds of fish in the river.
We just have had the back porch closed in with new big sliding windows around. Now, our guests can still sit in a nice and warm sunroom and enjoy the beautiful water view during colder months. Providing a great service to guests is our main goal. We have been working hard on making the place nicer and nicer, improving service to make your stay more memorable, and being available to help our guests with any concerns or questions. Thank you for choosing our beautiful cottage!!!

Where you’ll be

Norfolk, Virginia, United States

The cottage is on a peninsula, and there are just few houses in the neighborhood. It is a great little community on the water. We are like a big family on this cove, and we enjoy living on the water.

I am a Marine engineer, and I enjoy living in this waterfront neighborhood. I have lived in this neighborhood where the cottage is located for more than 25 years. My co-host and I have recently bought this vacation house, and we enjoy hosting guests and showing them the area that we love. There is so much to see and do around the Norfolk area. Getting to Virginia beach is easy, and the Norfolk International airport is only 5 miles away. Thank you for giving us a chance to host you, and we are looking forward to accommodating you and making your stay memorable.
