There is a house in Woodlake North for rent, near mine, which is for sale (I am moving to NOVA). I teach at King's Fork, it is the newest school, and the largest about 1500 students. It's more towards Central Suffolk, about 1 1/2 miles from NR High School. All of the schools are very diverse, and it looks like they will all be accredited this year. KF is the home of the IB program, and it looks like NR will be home of the pre-engineering program that is supposed to start up in 2010-11 if they secure the funding.
Hill point Farms is very close to KF, near Obici Hospital. Nice neighborhood, good golf course near there, but the rents are kind of high.
Burbage grant is a very dense neighborhood with several thousand houses packed next to each other. Traffic will be an issue as it is in extreme Northern Suffolk and I-664 can be a bear at ruch hour. It is not very close to NR, where it is zoned.
Harbor view is another golf course community and it is near Burbage Grant, so you have the same traffic issues. Getting around Suffolk is no problem, but again, I-664. It's very close to Wal-Mart, Kohl's Office Depot, etc. There is also a very nice movie theater nearby.
Riverwood is also zoned for KF.
All the neighborhoods you describe are diverse, but fairly quiet, with lots of school age kids.
Most of the "issues' in Suffolk come from the downtown area where you have the usual urban problems with crime.
I have lived in Suffolk for 7 years, Woodlake, and in Suffolk Meadows, and have had great neighbors and no issues at all.

The area frogbiscuit mentions is also a good area. The 'only' downside, is that it takes a little more effort to get to the highway, mall etc. Personally, I NEED a grocery store less than 5 min from my house . Overall, I think 664 is a gem compared to the other highways in Hampton Roads. Sure there can be traffic, but I travel that way every day to and from work in Chesapeake and rarely find the horrible traffic reported in other areas. Also the Monitor Merrimac is the best tunnel in the area as far as traffic goes - just remember there can be tunnel breakdowns in any tunnel at any time to cause delay's. The tunnel police here do try very hard to quickly remove any problems.

I don't think there's anywhere in Suffolk where you are more than 5 minutes away from a Food Lion unless you live in Whaleyville, extreme Southern Suffolk.
