Villas at the Boardwalk - Watch the Boardwalk Activity and the Ocean too!
Virginia Beach Boardwalk & Beach from south end looking toward Pier - our condo was 1 block N of Pier
Our family rented a 3-bedroom condo at Villas at the Boardwalk for a week in June of 2006.
It is a newer resort built as Timeshare Condos, and not a Hotel conversion. The unit was fairly roomy, had a full kitchen, and a great balcony view of the Virginia Beach Boardwalk activity, the Pier, and the Ocean Waves.
Our 3 teenagers loved the location since it was close to the Virginia Beach Pier activity and near where some of the outdoor bands set up many evenings. My husband and I preferred to "People watch" the Boardwalk and beach activity from the condo balcony with the ocean waves in the background. The beach or Boardwalk never got really crowded.
Our only complaint with the unit was that the air conditioning was a "through-the-wall" motel style, that was more noisy than a regular central air unit is. Plus the unit blocked part of the beach view from the living room. Otherwise, everything worked fine and we enjoyed our stay.
With teenagers, Virginia Beach is a good family vacation, lots to do on the boardwalk with the bicycle path, etc, plus a wide beach area.
We took day trips up to Yorktown Battlefield, Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens which are only a little over an hour drive away. Tip - leave after the morning rush hour and wait to return after the afternoon rush traffic period through "the tunnel."
Our Family really enjoyed Virginia Beach. We would give the Villas at the Boardwalk a 5/5 star rating.
