Why Terri Layne-Beigel chose Croatan Beach
My husband and I love the location overlooking the lake and 1 minute walk to beach!
What makes this House unique
10 minutes from the Convention center. 1/4 mile from 40 block Virginia Beach Boardwalk (shops and restaurants) and 1/4 mile to the Aquarium and Marine Science museum, and Ocean Breeze water park. Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens approximately 1 hour away!
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
The property was in a nice location but the neighbors aren't friendly to renters. But there were several things that needed to be fixed when we got there. They were resolved quickly but not what you want to arrive to after a 20 hour drive.
Thank you for making us aware of a few small issues—We value our guests, which is why we had it taken care of immediately.
The neighbor is fine But does not appreciate everyone hanging out on his dock!
Yes the location is fantastic - just a one minute walk to the Community beach or a short bike ride or walk to the resort boardwalk area. There is also a trolley that you can catch down the street at the Rudy Inlet Bridge—And of course the marine science Museum and aquarium and ocean breeze waterpark is in the opposite direction.
Many thanks for choosing our beach house!
The manager was amazing had a problem with the hot tub she had someone out immediately.
Best family Vacation in over 20 years
This house was perfect for our needs. I served a family thanksgiving diner to 15 adults and 4 beautiful children. The house was ready for us with no complaints. Turn key and enjoy. Hot tub was up to temp out back but was not used due to the weather. There was also a paddle boat that was never uncovered but I wanted to try it, just to busy. All in all it was a great week.
Thank you so much for choosing our Beachhouse for your family’s Thanksgiving!!
We look forward to seeing you again soon!!
BIG VA Beach House
We are a family of 4 with 2 kids under 12. The house is HUGE and has an open floor plan which was perfect for us. The house was very clean upon our arrival. The kids slept on the first floor and we slept on the main floor, which was a bit odd, but it worked just fine. The beds were comfortable, we all slept/napped fine! The TV in the bunk bed room did not work, which was a bummer for my son, but he just went into the twin bedroom to watch TV before bed (he insisted on having the top bunk!) We had no problem with the washer/dryer, in fact, they were so big and awesome that I was able to get all of my laundry done on the last day. Our bedroom TV didn't have a remote but we learned that the remote in the bunk room worked our TV. No issues with the air conditioning and it was HOT that week! The jetted hot tub in the master works fine, however the master stand up shower needs to be updated. There was no shelf for us to put our soap (very odd!) so we had to get a small dish from the kitchen because we didn't want to put the soap on the shower floor! My husband and I spent every morning on the terrace drinking coffee and every night in the garage playing pool! The kitchen was nice but the microwave above the stove doesn’t work but there was a second microwave on the counter. The refrigerator worked fine and keep everything very cold. The stove is electric but was pretty easy to use once you figured out which burner was which. The dishwasher worked great and there was dish washing liquid provided! All things like toilet paper, tissues, paper towels, bath towels, napkins etc were provided and there was just enough for us. The yard was nicely set up with a patio table, extra chairs, a BBQ and a jacuzzi! There is an outdoor shower which we used whenever we came back from the beach. The house is smoker friendly as there are ashtrays in the garage, terrace and the back yard. We didn’t use the paddle boat because a neighbor warned us that there are snakes in the lake. We only had one real issue with the house which was resolved within hours. Management was very responsive on site. This is a great place to stay for a small family like ourselves or big groups. Highly recommend!
We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay!
My apologies for any inconvenience with the TV or remotes--if we had known, we could have sent one of our staff members over to resolve it!
I think our neighbor may have been joking with you--I have never seen a snake and I’ve never heard of anyone else that saw a snake in the lake! I am so sorry that you did not utilize the paddle boat--most people really enjoy that amenity.
The shower was just updated/re-tiled approx 8 years ago. New granite counter tops and maple cabinets and vessel sinks in both full baths and the kitchen approx 10 years ago..
Many many thanks to you and your family for choosing our beach house and we hope that you will be back for a visit very soon!!
Beautiful beach and beautiful area! House needs work...
Croatan Beach is a beautiful place that we had the honor of visiting this past week! The community was clean and well-kept. The neighbors were very friendly. And the beach was mostly private. We had 16 people in our party to stay at this house. There was definitely enough space for everyone. There were just a few things that weren't working properly that affected our stay. The refrigerator in the kitchen was not able to keep our food cold. It could be because we had to open it to get stuff out a lot but even still it should keep your food cold. So most of our food for the kitchen had to be kept in the fridge in the garage. You can imagine the hassle! They did send out a refrigerator repairman but it didn't make a difference. There were some issues with the hot tub kicking off frequently. My brother was able to find the circuit breaker to flip it back on but it shouldn't have been tripping as much as it was. Cosmetically, the house needs work. Chipped paint, cracked bathroom tiles, black mold in the showers, electrical outlets that dont work, TV in one of the bottom bedrooms was not working. The railing on the balcony was broken so that was a little sketchy. The washer would not spin the water out on loads and would need to be re-spun. The dryer cycle was not working properly.The dryer would not shut off after you set the time. It would run until you stopped it manually. So in order to do laundry someone had to be there to stop the dryer. We were concerned about a raised board on the back deck as several of us stubbed our toes. We loved being able to go out on the balcony in the morning and listen to the small community wake up! We loved the big open floor plan so that all of us could hang out and eat together! We spent a lot of time hanging in the garage playing pool! The house came supplied with plenty of towels, linens and kitchenware! May need to add a dust pan ;) We purchased 4 fly swatters and left them for the next guests! The trash cans are right by the door to the garage and the flies were crazy! We had to reset the AC at least once per day. Not sure if the coils were frozen or what but we had to turn it off to get it to work. We loved the short walk to the beach and all of the beach toys available! We left some boogie boards there as well. We had a lot of fun visiting Croatan Beach! For the money we paid, I didnt expect to have those issues. We made the best of it and will come back to VA next year!! Memories were made..thank you ♡
Thank you for the feedback we value our guests and certainly want everything to be working properly.
Keeping up with the maintenance is definitely a challenge when you have 16 people in the house every week along with the Ocean Air and sand but we do try to be proactive and we do answer any guest complaints promptly.
What you may have mistaken for mold was actually a tiny piece of grout that had come out. We absolutely do not have mold anywhere in the house!!!
The refrigerator is only 1 year old.
Again thank you for making us aware so that we were able to address a few issues immediately.
Many thanks for choosing our beach house!
4 bedrooms with lots of space for our group of 11.
House was nice with decent updates. Dryer needed some service (wouldn't stop) and some small cosmetic things needed to be fixed up. All in all we had lots of fun. Plenty of space for a large group and parking for four. Beach is a fast walk and downtown is 5 minute drive. Nice quiet neighborhood and quiet beach front. As with anywhere in the VB area, you will see and hear lots of navy jets in training. House had everything needed on site including beach chairs and towels. Happy traveler.
