This charming cottage has lots of well appointed generous living space (living room/dining area, sun room, all weather porch and outside deck). The bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchen are small but very clean and serviceable. The outdoor shower is wonderful for after-beach bathing. The owners are responsive and helpful with questions. This is on the quiet end of town, so be...

Management response:

We really enjoyed our time at the Flamingo Cottage. It was very clean (which is very important to our wives and a prerequisite to stay anywhere we go), nicely furnished, slept great, nice amenities for use inside/out (loved taking outdoor showers), we hung out both inside and outside plus enjoyed using the bikes riding all the way to Rudee Inlet...

Management response:

Oh, I'm so pleased you all enjoyed yourselves at Flamingo Cottage, despite the iffy weather when you were here. We welcome you back at any time, and thank you all for leaving the Cottage clean and organized upon your departure. ~Gretchen

We've rented a number of houses like this over the years, and by far, this was our favorite. To show I'm not just gushing for no reason, I'll start with the constructive criticisms: The single ply toilet paper. In the long run, I don't think you're saving money there anyway, since it takes two rolls to get the job done......

Management response:

Thank you all for leaving the cottage in pristine condition when you departed. It was so very thoughtful of you! Thank you, also, for taking the time for your criticisms and compliments. I'd like to address the criticisms as feedback is important to me. ~I understand totally about the toilet paper. I don't use that as a measure to save...

About the neighbourhood
Flamingo Cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood just south of the entrance to Fort Story. It's a wonderful neighborhood in which to walk or bike and the neighbors are super friendly. Virginia Beach has much to offer besides the beach, and Flamingo Cottage is positioned as a fabulous home base. The cottage is a true beach cottage, but with all modern amenities. It's really dear and you will certainly enjoy your stay!
