Very nice condo and easy check in
The condo was very nice. It’s a little small, but would fit up to 4 people. The condo was clean and it was stacked with everything we needed, like condiments in the refrigerator for everyone to use as well as coffee, sugar, salt, pepper, pots and pans and dishes, etc. we brought our own linens and towels, but you have the option to rent them. The check in process was extremely easy because we just had to go to the room and enter a key code in the key pad to get in the condo. It was so hassle free and I loved not having to worry about a key, especially on the beach.
Parking was excellent. We were given an assigned parking spot, which was great. We didn’t have to worry about parking at the condo. It was very convenient.
The condo is located on the very top end of the board walk and it was much less crowded and more private than it is at the bottom of the boardwalk; however, we had to walk or pay for parking to get to a lot of the places we wanted to go to. There are places to shop and eat within 10 blocks or so, but the majority of the action is about 20 blocks away. It was nice to walk and you can rent a scooter, too.
The owner was great. She kept in touch with me to make sure things were going well. Overall, we had a great vacation.
Construction 24/7 on the Beach
The property itself would have been lovely. But our “oceanfront” view was of big rusty pipes, earth movers, dredgers, etc. The work went on 24/7, so we had rumbles, clanks, lights, and such all night long every night of our stay. If we wanted to spend time on the beach, we had to walk 1/2 mile up the beach. I contacted the property manager who told me that they knew nothing about the work happening. I find that hard to believe. I paid for a great oceanfront property and did not get it. If they had let us know this was happening, we would have cancelled. When I complained, I was offered a discount on a return visit later this year. Yeah, like I get another week of vacation. Our vacation was ruined and these folks did nothing to fix it. Wonder if they told the folks coming in behind us about the state of the beach?????? Seriously unhappy that no refund or discount was offered.

Just as advertised - great location and clean!
We have stayed at this property several times, in different units. This was our first time in this unit. The check in and booking process were easy. Communication with the owner was also great. My daughter was grateful for the free (and accessible) wifi.
It is a beachfront condo and the view was wonderful, it was great to watch the dolphins swim each morning while drinking my coffee.
This unit was very clean and just as pictured. The kitchen was very well appointed. The location is great - at the quiet end of the beach and boardwalk with a lifeguard stand just outside the building and easy beach access. The pool is also clean and well kept. Parking was easily accessible and conveniently close to the building. There is a city trolley outside the building, if you choose to take it downtown instead of walking or driving. It is $2 per way for adults and free for children. We grocery shop at Harris Teeter which is a quick 5 minute drive away.
One thing I would recommend you bring is a drying rack for your towels and bathing suits as you are not to hang these on the balcony railings.
Also we brought our own linens but did not think of a bathmat which we needed for the bathroom floor as it got slippery.
We had another great stay at Oceans II.
Nice Place for a Weekend Getaway
Our stay was very nice in Virginia Beach. The unit was clean and everything worked as advertised. It was located at the end of the boardwalk and right on the beach, so it was very easy to get to everything. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate so we didn't get to spend much time actually on the beach or in the pool, but the pool was nice and clean. The unit itself was a little small, but we knew that going in and we only had 3 people for 3 days, so it worked out very well for us. I had a couple of questions for Deb via email, which she answered promptly. The building which housed the unit was older and had some wear and tear but nothing really out of the ordinary for something located right on the beach. We did not use the laundry facility on site, so can't comment on that. Overall, we had a great time and the property suited our needs very well.
Marvelous Spring Break Get-away
Beautiful decor! Extremely clean and equipped with all the niceties of home. Beautiful view of the beach and within walking distance of everything. Great holiday! Would love to visit again!
Good but concerns.
We enjoyed our stay. It would have been nice to know there wouldn’t be bath soap and that we would need to make the bed upon arrival. Also, if we are paying a cleaning fee why is it necessary for us to sweep? The hot water faucet in the shower needs repaired.
