“Chill 2.0”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

If you and a significant other want a place to chill on a nice little beachfront located on a little one way street 60 yards from the beach , here's your lodge . Virginia Beach had been our favorite place to " park it " for yaers come water time but because of Darlings , that has all changed . We're permanently hooked . Check it out soon ! Don & Pearl

Room Tip: Room # 55 is in the shape of a lighthouse and unique but all 5 rooms are awesome !

We stayed at Darlings in March. The accomodations were absolutely wonderful! All the extra little touches make you feel very pampered. My husband and I had a relaxing, weekend getaway. The room is extremley clean and the private balcony is great! Balcony furniture is go comfortable and the balcony itself is so spacious. We are planning to visit Darlings again very soon! A big thank you to the staff of Darlings!

We stayed at Darlings last August and are planning a return trip this May. The location is within walking distance of several local restaurants, so plan to park your car and leave it parked! It was a very comfortable place to stay. Visit the website and you will get exactly what is advertised. They've thought of everything…..beach chairs, bicycles, ice machine, thick robes in the bathroom, I can go on and on!

Our stay at Darlings by the Sea was one of the best I have ever experienced. The no-dog and no-children policy is a well-appreciated one for getting away and having a quiet, peaceful weekend. The room was extremely clean- probably the cleanest place I have ever stayed. We really enjoyed the bicycles they allow the guests to use (they also have beach chairs you can take down to the shore if you choose). The balcony was big and private- perfect for watching the sunrise. It was a perfectly peaceful place. Nice whirlpool tub in the bathroom, flat-screen tv, books in the room to read (mainly travel books, but also some meditation ones), binoculars, a radio/docking station to plug your iPhone into (and charge in case you forgot your charger), a Keurig coffee machine, a mini-refrigerator, a microwave, toaster, and cups/plates/utensils all provided. Lovely basket of breakfast, fruit, and snack goodies brought to your room in the evening. The bedding with its down comforter and pillows was very comfortable. There is also a nice fitness room available downstairs. The location is perfect…you can jump right on the boardwalk and walk to the Kure Beach Pier and several great restaurants. We ate at Freddie's and enjoyed it thoroughly. Lastly, the wonderfully friendly, funny cat roaming the property was a nice perk too. I would gladly stay again and look forward to a future trip there.

We thought room was clean and nice. we were not very pleased with the breakfast basket. When we made the reservation, we understood it was a bed and breakfast. Unfortunately, it was not. The fast consisted of items that were not for breakfast not to mention that fact that they did not take in consideration the request for our request for our diet.

They really should not advertise a bed and breakfast, just a hotel would be better.

Again, we liked the location and the room, but we would not stay their again due to the unwelcoming feeling from the owner. He did not seem or concerned with our dietary issues.
We would say, if you want to operate a bed and breakfast you should accommodate your guests.

Darlings By The Sea looked like a good pick when I saw it on-line, but it had so much more to offer than I could have even imagined. We typically try to figure out what will make a B&B just a little bit better. It was really hard with room 55 so we decided that the only thing that would have made the entire stay just a little bit better was a ceiling fan on the balcony (for those rare times when there was not a breeze). To call the basket of goodies a breakfast basket is an under statement as there was enough food for snacks for the day and to take on the travel home. The accomodations were top notch, and the view was awesome! We came from West Virginia, and we certainly hope to go back.

My husband and I went there to celebrate our 20th anniversary and just to get away and relax.. It was wonderful. We went after Labor Day and so the beaches were not crowded, nor were the places to eat. It was a very relaxing vacation and we did not want to come back. The breakfast basket was a very nice touch which included snacks for the whole day. We definitely will go back and stay longer. All the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The only thing I would recommend is that you take your own beach chairs. The beach chairs did not recline and were not that comfortable on the beach.
