Other things to note
Parking is located in the driveway requiring about a 20 foot walk back to the guest house above the detached garage (please see pictures). At night we try to turn on the driveway lights so you can feel safer and a lot of our lights are motion activated. The stairs have twinkling lights on the rails and we also have 24-hour video security surveillance around the property.

On your departure we handle all the cleaning. We ask that you keep the studio tidy though, make sure no food or crumbs are left about, and leave the studio in a reasonable condition. Don't worry about making the bed, stripping sheets, etc.

***If you've stayed with us before, are a servicemember, first responder (including medical professionals like nurses or doctors), or a teacher ask about our 10% discount. We may ask for proof of your credentials.***

Norfolk, Virginia, United States

It's a great neighborhood full of a lot of beach going type of people, military servicemembers (NS Norfolk only 10 minutes away), and retirees (who love the beach). The beach is 2 blocks away requiring about a 4-minute walk. There is a road you have to cross that gets a little busy during rush hour time but it's nothing that has ever worried us.

The beach allows dogs at all times of the day from Fall to Spring and during Summer (Memorial Day to Labor Day) between 6 PM and 10 AM only. There's also a beach park called Captain's Quarters about a 10-minute walk away that allows dogs from sunrise to sunset.

There are a couple of awesome restaurants here on Willoughby Spit that we talk about in our Guest House Manual. Big shoutouts to Ocean View Fishing Pier and the Sunset Grill both within about a 20-minute walk.

Drew is from Idaho and Alyssa is from Maryland. We both met when Drew moved to Norfolk. We decided to open up our home to others who can now enjoy both the beach and the great guest house studio we've renovated. It would be our pleasure to host you and make your stay wonderful. We'd love to meet you and hope that no matter where you decide to book, that you enjoy your stay in the Hampton Roads area!

During your stay
Our former home is on the same property where our housekeeper Sharron and handyman George live so they can respond quickly and we've never heard any complaints about the close proximity to the guest house. AirBnB messaging or texting is the preferred means if you need to reach us! We keep to ourselves though and only plan to interact with you if you need something. Generally, we plan to let you enjoy the guest house in privacy. Please do not try to knock on the on doors of our housekeeper and handyman unless it is urgent.
