RECENT REVIEWS:

*** It is a stone's throw from the Chesapeake Bay. For us this was
a holiday retreat while visiting relatives in Hampton and Virginia Beach. We arrived to find a welcome basket with coffee, tea, and ready made dinner goodies. We were happy to be able to have our corgi, Ruby with us during the stay.
January 2016 Mel A.

***This spot was ideal for our party, as we spent much of our time
in downtown Norfolk. The 'hideaway' is in a charming beachy neighborhood, across from an historic park. Truly a short walk to the beach with no streets to cross. We had a great weekend there!
November 2015 Mike and Elizabeth M.

***Very nice place! Clean and tidy. We did not have time to cook there as we did not arrive till REALLY late at night! It is just steps from the beach. If I go back to the area I will definitely stay again!
October 2015 Claudia and Amato C.

***4 stars--and I'm a very tough grader! Great experience! Convenient, comfortable and spotlessly clean condo, just 200 feet to the beach. The owner is very pleasant and easy to work with. Linens, towels, and many beach amenities are provided. The unit is practically an all-in-one-package beach vacation. Also convenient: the condo is less than 1.5 miles from the Sand Fiddler and Shipwreck Sally's, the area's two best diners--so beach-bum breakfasts and lunches are easy. We only stayed one night, so unfortunately we couldn't take advantage of the full "gourmet experience." We hope to do so in the future! At this price point, it's a terrific deal!

Here's a technique for a simple Eggplant Parmesan our chef hadn't seen before. Olive oil seared, more herbs than sauce and still extremely moist and mouth watering. Even better, grandma left a half baking dishfull for us to enjoy. Thanks Nana!

Fresh Spring Rolls with Shrimp, Chicken and Tofu make a great light lunch, packed with nutrition.

Tuna is in the markets and coming off the docks. An asian flair captures summer as well as any charcoal grilling could. Albacore or Longfin (pictured) has a subtle flavor that works better with the former. Unagi served on the side compliments well.

With all the fine fresh vegetables, a rich vegetable stock is breeze to make. This one was used to poach some local scallops and then lightly thickened for a terrific sauce.

The local farm stands and markets are brimming right now. Peaking in flavor and abundance are basil's, tomatoes, peppers, squash and eggplant.

Final night at the beach for our latest guests included a vegetarian competition hosted by Chef Michael. The winner is pictured here. Platter included locally grown tomatoes, beets, and a ragout of shallots, roast garlic and AM Fog's Mitake mushrooms in a vermicelli nest. Sweet!
