Virginia Beach Vacation Home Guide


From location to interior and exterior spaces, a vacation rental home is the best choice for your family vacation. Hotels limit the possibilities and are expensive compared to the value of a vacation rental home. So what are characteristics of the perfect getaway home? Virginia Beach vacation rental homes provide privacy and amenities that guarantee good times!

Beach Location

Direct Oceanfront or Oceanfront Resort?

The beach is one of the most popular family vacation destinations and a great vacation rental home makes it even better! Virginia Beach is one of the most visited beaches in America – and for good reason. Virginia Beach provides almost limitless entertainment for the entire family. The perfect vacation rental home starts with a perfect location. Whether you seek direct oceanfront or want to live like a local in the heart of the resort area, a home not only saves vacation dollars, but provides an experience far and away better than the limits of a hotel room. With a broad range of activities from body surfing and sandcastles to sunbathing or reading a book, the possibilities are only limited by your own imagination! A home located directly on the oceanfront makes vacation life simple – and the vacation lifestyle doesn’t get any better. A home located in close proximity to the boardwalk creates access to free, fun family entertainment. A Virginia Beach vacation rental home delivers privacy, exclusivity, convenience and vacation value.

Interior Spaces


Let’s face it, food gets expensive fast when the entire family is eating out for meals at a hotel. A vacation rental home kitchen creates great vacation value from main meals to snacking throughout the day during your stay. Save on vacation costs, eat better and gain the convenience of eating at your home away from home. Having a kitchen puts the control in your hands. With all the activities, vacation days are fluid at the beach, so you choose when to eat and when meals are served. A fully outfitted kitchen makes food prep a breeze. Show up with food or shop at the local markets. Have your food delivered by one of the Virginia Beach grocery providers or prepared by a private chef found at Coastal Concierge. A home lets you eat all together as a family or set the kids up with their own table…whatever suits you best.

Living and Family Rooms

Wouldn’t it be great if the whole family could sit and visit together in one room? After all, how often does the family have a moment to enjoy each other’s company and laugh a little! Family gatherings can be a rarity so a large family room with ample seating sets a great vacation rental home apart. A home theater might be the perfect way to decompress after a long day of having fun on the beach. Wi-fi and DVD players, and USB connections make family movie night possible! Game tables for chess, checkers and backgammon keep the kids engaged in fun and off the smartphone. Board games and puzzles challenge and engage everyone and get parents feeling like kids again! A summer book collection on hand makes for an easy escape.

Game Room or Gym

Special spaces for entertainment or exercise offer a chance to break off in groups and really enhance the vacation experience. Vacation rental homes are not all the same! A game room is perfect for the kids to enjoy the vacation visit and take a break from the sun. Parents can let the hair down and let loose! Being on vacation may not mean you don’t want to get in some exercise. Gym equipment at a vacation rental gives you access to exercise while taking minimal time away from the day’s fun. Check and see what unique rooms a vacation rental has to offer and live it up!


Unlike a hotel room, large vacation rental homes offer a range of bedrooms to choose from – a comfortable place for everyone. How a home is furnished creates that comfort and livability for your stay. Large beds are important. You can’t do better than a master suite with an ocean view to wake up to. A master bath with jetted tub lends itself to a moment of quiet solitude, so relax! A reading area and windows with good light is a bonus. A massage chair might be the perfect getaway! Of course a bunk room for all of the cousins to bond is always a family favorite! Having sleeping areas on multiple floors maybe the perfect way to spread out based on family preferences.

Outdoor Spaces

Perfect Pool and Patio

Pools on the oceanfront are scarcely available but put your family beach vacation over the top. Some family vacationers want to dig their toes in the sand while others prefer to dip their toes in a pool. Why not have the best of all with fresh and salt water options! A sports pool gets the whole family participating in a friendly (or competitive) game of volleyball while keeping cool in the summer mid day sun. A vacation pool should have ample patio space for larger groups to chill or play a game of corn hole together. An outdoor grill is a must on vacation and of course large dining and seating area options keep family close. Grilling poolside for an outdoor barbeque is a moment to remember! A hot tub may be the perfect way to finish off the evening or soothe the muscles and mind. Waking up to an outdoor shower is a beach classic.


Decks take the party outside. A dune deck may be the best room in the house! Let time drift by like the ocean breeze while enjoying your favorite cocktail oceanside. Why not kick back and watch the waves roll in…you have been working hard all year for this. A deck can make for the perfect nap area, or place to read a best selling summer novel. A deck convenient to the kitchen makes dining al fresco a snap. Private decks are a wonderful retreat!

Beach Gear!

The perfect vacation rental home comes complete with gear to ease your packing and travel. Surfboards, body boards, fins, pool toys and floats make for watersports on demand. Expand your outdoor gear desires from local providers found at Coastal Concierge. Bikes and beach strollers make for a quick getaway to explore the beach community or cruise the boardwalk like the locals! Beach chairs and umbrellas are a grab-and-go must at a vacation rental home. Beach balls, volleyballs, frisbees, and paddleboard are beachgoer favorites. The best beach house is outfitted to make your travel planning easier and your travel packing lighter. Baby gear including a play crib, high chair or baby swing is a plus to accommodate the youngest family members. Check out what gear is on hand at your vacation rental home before you hit the road!
