“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Love coming to Beach Spa B&B. I don't think I'll ever tire of coming to this property. I look forward to it every summer and it never disappoints. My wife and I just adore the innkeepers Rich and Sharon. They're like family to us at this point since they make you feel so at home and welcome.

Anything you need Rich/Sharon will do their best to point you in the right direction with local tours, restaurants, etc...

The rooms are just the right amount of everything. Bathrooms are spacious, with separate tubs and showers. beds are comfortable, AC is quiet and the property is just what you'd expect.

And, breakfast. Wow. Do not miss breakfast is you stay here. Each day was better than the last - fluffy and moist lemon ricotta pancakes; grilled peaches with vanilla ice cream as starter course; and so much more. Rich is a superstar in the kitchen and has inspired me to make some yummy brunches at home.. We're already planning/anticipating our return next summer... Counting the days already. Thanks Sharon/Rich for a wonderful time. xo.

Comfy - Quiet - Relaxing. Close enough to the beach to walk and far enough to get away from the busy strip. If you like that you should be quite happy with this choice. Family friendly environment make it a good choice for peeps with kids as well.

The owners have created a little slice of heaven in VA Beach.
Peaceful, relaxing, calm and serence.
A perfect getaway.
A short walk to the beach. apple pancakes or a soak in the spa, it all amounts to a great getaway.I slept like a baby and had to drag myself out of the shower which had a rain shower and seven jets.

Room Tip: Perfect weekend getaway. Close to the beach without the hustle and bustle of a big hotel. Great brea...

I had a great stay at the Beach Spa Bed and Breakfast. The innkeepers were kind and friendly, the room was clean and well-appointed, and the breakfasts were delicious. I highly recommend a weekend here over a weekend at a hotel.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Waverly Room.

Our experience was phenomenal at Beach Spa! Rich and Sharon do everything just right to make sure your stay is the absolute best it could be at a bed and breakfast. We were visiting Virginia Beach for the weekend with our 2 young children and couldn't resist a B&B just 2 blocks from the ocean. We were a little concerned with the kids at a B&B, but Rich and Sharon were just fabulous about it! They discussed breakfasts (which, by the way, are so good that we had a hard time eating lunch both days we were there) and even left little stuffed animals on their pillows the first night we were there. That takes care of the innkeepers (you won't find better) so now the location: 2 blocks from the beach. You can't beat it and there are enough restaurants and stores close by that you won't even need to drive anywhere. As for the rooms, they were very well done and very comfortable. We were in the Hilltop and it was everything we needed, to include a crazy fancy shower. Trust me, you need to see it and I can't describe it.

The best part of Beach Spa is the little amenities: Rich's appetizer with wine left each night, the spa pool with a cascading waterfall, and the multitude of glasses to use in your room/pool/walking around, just to name a few.

Thank you for a great weekend and we will definitely be back!

We were completely and totally satisfied with out stay here. I think it has a lot to do with the couple that operate it because they really care about you as a customer and person. They really make you feel comfortable and are completely attentive to your every need.
The breakfasts that were prepared for us each morning by them were simply amazing! What great cooks they are. I can give them A+ for presentation too.
Our room was clean and fresh. The place smells like a spa!
We were very happy with everything! The only downside was we left very early the third day to catch our flight so we missed out on that breakfast for the morning! Its to bad because I am sure it would have been amazing. ;)

We had a really good experience. The location was easy to get to. Parking is limited on the actual property but there is plenty of street parking directly adjacent. Check-in was smooth and the managers were nice, ensuring our needs were met, asking about dietary restrictions, etc. Take time to talk with the managers (Rich and Sharon) - they are very nice and have a lot of knowledge of VA Beach, local attractions, etc. We stayed in the Avamere room, which is the biggest and the only one with an outside private deck, which was nice. This room also has a very nice steam shower with numerous jets and whirlpool tub. Location was about 3 blocks off the beach - it was an easy walk. The location is near many restaurants, so plenty of variety. There is also a school with an athletic field and running track a few blocks away and also a nature reserve/path nearby. Breakfast was very good, with a different gourmet presentation each day. The property is overall quiet compared to hotels along the beach - during the day there are quite a few cars going by and jets from nearby Oceana Naval Air Station are flying from about 8 AM to 11 PM, but you will hear these anywhere in VA Beach. The property is definitely quiet indoors. We experienced none of the issues we have had in almost every other recent hotel stay such as rowdy drunks, loud conversations in halls, unruly kids, etc. The property does allow kids but all the ones we saw were quiet - perhaps because the B&B model attracts quieter clientele in general. The hot tub was very nice. Even when the B&B was fully booked we managed to have the tub to ourselves each time we used it. We had a couple massages - they bring in local masseuses with skills for whatever type of massage you prefer (we did sports massage) - it was very nice. Overall no downsides I can think of other than hot water takes a while to heat up in the bathrooms. Great stay overall! P.S. there are fireworks each WED and SUN at 10 PM on 25th street. You can go to the boardwalk to see them and they can also be seen from the deck of the Avamere room.
