We offer: - A clean beautiful waterfront home - Fireplace - Complimentary breakfast/coffee while watching the sunrise over the dock - WiFi internet and cable TV with HBO - Great bluetooth speaker system for movies and music - Luxury bath linens - New water view sunroom - Dish washer/Washer/Dryer The interior was recently renovated with a new kitchen and floors, a washer and dryer. The kitchen is fully equipped including a Keurig coffee machine. We have recently had the porch closed in with new big sliding windows around. Our guests now can enjoy the beautiful water view during colder months from the new sunroom. Providing a great service to guests is our main goal. We have been working hard on making the place nicer and nicer, improving service to make our guests' stay more memorable, and always being available to help our guests with any concerns or questions. A 2 night minimum required and for long holiday weekends, we only rent out the place for the entire long weekend, Friday through Monday. We have registered the business with the city of Norfolk, and the city strictly only allows 2 guests each stay since the place has only one bedroom. Please help us to follow the rule. Thank you! According to Travelandleisure Magazine, top 20 America’s favorite cities in 2017 were rated and Norfolk has made number 1 this year. It was number 4 last year. The cottage is 5 miles from downtown Norfolk and within walking distance of the light rail stop. A day pass costs $4.50 including use of the ferry to downtown Portsmouth, a neighboring city on the other side of the river.

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is on the cove. There are just few houses on this cove, so we are like a big family. We enjoy living on the water. There is so much water around and it is easy to get to downtown and the beach.
Getting around
There is a light rail system called the Tide, servicing around Norfolk area. It takes 12 minutes on the train to downtown Norfolk, and the train station is about 7 minute walk from the cottage.
