The Flamingo Cottage beat all our expectations. The house is located in the quiet North area of VA beach only a block away from the beach. There is ample deck space as well as a a great glassed off patio. The first sitting area attached to the patio has sky lights with ample seating. The second is adjacent to an eating table with a TV. There is cable and internet. The bedrooms provide sleeping for 6. The kitchen has everything you would ever need.

Overall, the Flamingo Cottage was the best decision we could make for our trip to VA Beach. I would highly suggest if you make a trip down stay here. It rained the weekend we came down but the cottage provided a great space for an even better price. The owner responded within 24 hours which proved vital for my last minute decision trip.

“Beautiful cottage, super-helpful owner”
Reviewed 22 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

The pictures don't do Flamingo Cottage justice. It's extremely neat, clean, well furnished, fully supplied, fun decor, and well laid-out! Everything was just so when we arrived.

The owner was incredibly polite and helpful both before our visit and afterward, when I needed to return to pick up an item I'd accidentally left behind.

“This cute little cottage was immaculate and was across the street from a very uncrowded beach.”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We have 3 daughters, one being a teenager and the others being younger, so the bedroom arrangements were perfect for us. There was a queen sized bed for our teen, in her own room and a single with a trundle in the other room, for the girls. The really nice thing was that each room had its own sink and toilet, very nice for girls! The property had a nice, private deck and backyard, and was literally a block from the beach! The house was very reasonably priced and very clean. We immediately felt very comfortable and at home there. The only thing we lacked was a DVD player, which we thought there would be, but we ended up finding movies on TV anyway. The kitchen is small, but not a problem as we only ate breakfast there. Though you could cook whatever you wanted, there was plenty of pans, dishes, anything you would need. Oh and my girls just loved the outdoor shower too!

It is always wonderful to know when guests find Flamingo Cottage to perfectly suit their needs, and it sounds like that was the case this time. You are exactly right that the extra powder rooms are an extra nice feature so no one needs to fight over a bathroom, and every one has space to get ready in the morning. And the outside shower is the best! I hope you will return! My Best, ~Gretchen

“Adorable cottage with plenty of room”
Reviewed 23 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I recently organized a reunion for some girls I used to play ball with in college. We chose Flamingo cottage for our girls weekend and it was fantastic! We didn't need to worry about anything, everyone loved the place and felt right at home. It had great beach access and the backyard was perfect for lounging and playing a few games. there were 6 girls and the place had enough bathrooms (and hot water!) for us all to get ready to go out on Saturday night. It was a short cab ride to the bar and enough side streets for those of us who were up for some exercise! I would definitely come back here, I have nothing negative to say about this place. Gretchen was helpful and kind, we all had a great time!

“Great vacation!”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The Flamingo Cottage is in a perfect location for us - it's a bike ride away from the crowded tourist area. The beach was fabulous: short walk to get there, clean, not crowed, friendly people. The cottage had everything you could possibly need - plenty of linens, backyard space, beach accessories, books, games, even spices in the kitchen! The owners were gracious, friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again!

I'm so glad you were able to enjoy Flamingo Cottage and that you felt at home. We try hard to keep everything stocked in order to make your visit a true vacation. It's fun to ride bikes to the tourist area, but always great to come home to the North End of the beach that is quiet and relaxing. We look forward to your return!
