We’ve reserved a beautiful house for the 2018 Virginia Beach trip.
This gorgeous semi-oceanfront beach home offers over 4000 square feet of space with room for the entire family. Beach access is just across the street. The huge 3rd floor Great Room offers plenty of leather seating as well as a 52″ Flat Panel TV and open access to the dining area with multiple tables to seat our whole family. The Kitchen is a chef’s dream with Granite Countertops, 2 Ovens, 2 Dishwashers and plenty of space to create those gourmet delights! There’s a total of 13 Bedrooms and 13 full baths (2 with Jetted Tubs) and two half baths including 10 King Master Suites and One Queen Suite.
The first floor Recreation Room features a Theater area with a 72″ Flat Panel TV, Blu-ray Disc player and Surround Sound – plus a Pool Table, Air Hockey Table and Foosball Table. There’s also a Wetbar with a full size refrigerator that’s conveniently located by the pool for easy access to snacks and beverages. Multi – level decking on both East and West sides of the house offer you many options for soaking up the sun or just relaxing in the shade plus views of both the beach and the bay. After a day on the beach or sight-seeing, you can even enjoy the luxury of riding the elevator to your room – great for carrying in groceries and luggage too! Best of all, you even have your own Private Outdoor Swimming Pool to cool off after a day of fun in the summer sun.
We don’t yet have the price for 2018. In 2016 the cost was roughly $1600 per room. Food cost is roughly $180 per person. Please don’t react until we know for sure what the price is and can provide a more accurate number.
The table to the right is what we know about intentions for 2018. You will soon be asked to make a financial commitment.
We had some confusion last year on alcohol purchases. The rule was that people are responsible for their own alcohol and occasionally the cost got mixed in with family food expense. I covered some of this myself, but wondering if we’d be better collecting money from drinkers and using that as a separate pool of money for alcohol. I was thinking $35 per person, but am open to suggestions. Part of me thinks that people who drink like a fish (like me) need to pay more than people who limit their drinking (like Byron), so maybe two prices ($35/$10)?
