Best Virginia Beach Vacation Rentals

Published: March 27, 2011 | Updated: March 27, 2011

A wide range of vacation rentals are available in Virginia Beach and the surrounding Hampton Roads communities. Vacation rental units are usually available by the week or month, with some units available for an entire season.

Rental units range from simple cottages or homes in residential neighborhoods to upscale condos, apartments and even full sized historic homes.

Smaller units are perfect for individuals or couples. Larger units can provide a temporary home for entire families. Spacious homes offer even more options.

One popular option is to share one large house among two or more families. These arrangements are perfect for family re-unions, company retreats or other functions.
