When we first moved here we tried renting instead of housing. A two bedroom townhouse was like $850 ( i heard it was a great deal) but we had to pay all the water, sewer, and electric bills. It ended up we were paying almost all of our BAH. As far as housing, Whitehearst( i think thats right) Farms is new and in Little Creek. DO NOT try Ben Moreel. In less than a year here our street has went from nice and quite to complete ghetto with breakins included. Management doesnt care and some of maintainence is lazy and/or ignorant.

From my experience, military housing is not a very good place to be. Tends to be filled with very trashy junior or sometimes senior military personnel who can't get a good place to live because they have bad credit. Then you get roped into the rumors and drama that goes on. Some skank wife banging the neighborhood teens and things like that. You can find many places to rent around this area. Most of Chesapeake and areas near general boothe in VA beach are very nice. Check on craigslist.

I'm moving to Norfolk in Feb. I really haven't heard anything good about it and the stories I hear about the traffic terrify me lol...I have a friend that lives in Midway Manor. I read the above entries about Midway. I like the fact that she is able to walk her kids to school, walmart is right over the bridge and the clinic is right around the corner. The only thing she said that I didn't like was that the base was 25 mins away. Is there anyone out there that could tell me more, whether it's good or bad? thanks

I would like to rent my house (3BR/1Ba) out to a small military family. $1000/mo. The house is located off Hampton Blvd @ 38th St., on the Naval Base/ODU/Norfolk Sentara Hospital/Eastern VA Medical School corridor. It is VERY well situated, located between all four of these institutions. Home is about 3-5 miles straight down Hampton Blvd to the entrance of the Base. The home is 975 sq feet, three bedrooms, one bath. Huge backyard w/6' privacy fence. Gated front yard has vinyl white picket fence. Very private; tall Christmas trees in front of house. Small rose garden. No grass to cut: great for entertaining--the ground is landscaped and covered with pebbles. Laminate flooring throughout, except 2 BRs have carpet. Clean, bright home--everything works. Includes washer, dryer, refrig, range and dishwasher. Must see! Call Ms Sheppard for info. Rent to be pd by allotment. (757) 236-2199 THANKS!

Warning!!!! Stay FAR away from the housing by the Northwest Naval Annex in Chesapeake!! It's full of your stereotypical military spouses who have nothing better to do but sit in their little cliques and bully neighbors they decide they want to. They make false and slanderous accusations about those who prefer to keep to themselves and just want to live peacefully. It would be a wonderful and peaceful place to live minus young dependent wives who just arent happy unless they're making other's lives miserable. We are actively looking for a new home since these few, who obviously havent left high school, are ridiculous! Our children deserve to be raised in a better environment where adults are adults and parents work together to raise our children with respect and properly. Dont even think housing will help you once you've been selected to be bullied, gossiped about, harassed, etc. We've never seen such a horribly drama filled neighborhood until moving here two years ago. No matter how much you ignore it, make the DM aware of the problems, eventually the only option is to get out ASAP! I would highly recommend NOT considering the Northwest Annex as a place to consider calling home. It's been a living nightmare for us and our children! We've been threatened and cursed at one too many times in broad daylight over trivial matters that could easily be settled if there were more mature residents.
