Greetings All...

My fiance and I have been looking for a decent place to move and we have decided on VA Beach.

We both work as bartenders, we have a 4 year old, and we are looking for a year-round beach town. We are not looking to buy a house, just rent for the meantime, find a good school and be somewhere in VA Beach that wont become a ghost town during the off season.

For better feed back, the following is what we are working with:

-Looking for work within a 20 mile radius
-Good schools
-Renting 2-3 bedrooms at $800/month
-As for our entertainment, we enjoy being at the beach and eating out
-We are hoping to find a diverse town, different ages, different races

Is there a city, town, and/or neighborhood in VA Beach that sounds like a match???

Thanks everyone!

A 2-3 bedroom for $800 a month will be tough to find in VB in a decent area. I suggest you take a little trip to scope out the area before relocating to VB.

As far as working for tips, I was a waitress/bartender while going to school and VB Oceanfront is a ghost town in the off season. You can make great money in the peak season though but you just have save up to make it through the off season. I think the Chick's Beach area of VB might be a little more steady year round since it is a smaller beach community with a local clientele. You would definitely be hard pressed to find rentals in your price range in Chick's. Good luck and just see for yourself if it is a place where you will have the quality of life you are seeking!

I would try to work in town center. Even during the off season I know they have a after work happy hour crowd year round. Can't help you with the rent. I'm sure they're out there, and you may have better luck renting from a person than a company. Just make sure you see the place before handing over any money to avoid being scammed.

Spaz is right...private renting can be better than a complex rental unit. Also, the Greenbriar area is building up in Chesapeake. You can also check this site and find what you will be able to afford. Keep in mind, that your utilities may not be included.
