47th street near the ocean... Quiet or Raucous?

We are looking for a house rental for this summer in Virginia Beach. We are definitely trying to avoid the main boardwalk resort area and any super crowded and busy area. We were looking in Croatan and North End which would be ideal (nice and quiet but close enough to access the action when we want to), but nothing fit our budget that had a big backyard (our requirement). We found a home 2 blocks from the beach at 47th street. We are just concerned that it will be too hectic over there. Anyone that knows the area that could give us an idea of what to expect over there, please advise. The house is near the Princess Anne Country Club. Thanks!

Well, that is north of the boardwalk. It's all residential there. Do you mean because you'd be close to the main street there? At that point the main street is Pacific and the oceanfront properties are on Ocean. I wonder if the 2 blocks includes the public access from sand to road as a block? And then from Ocean Front to Pacific, another block?

Would you be east or west of Pacific?

At any rate it is definitely residential, more expensive homes and not as busier as further south. It's a nice walk to the beach and there's a nice access path between homes to get to the beach itself. Even the higher number cross streets in the upper end of the boardwalk area are quieter than the mid-section. So you'd have it still quieter.

Question though...I thought west of Pacific the street was called Bay Colony? Are you renting through a real estate or rental company?

It won't be raucous, that's for sure.
