The name Virginia Beach is a little deceptive as it’s actually a coastal city that offers more than just beaches. As well as its gorgeous and luscious beaches, it has a vibrant nightlife, many eateries, and amusement parks for the young and young at heart. If you’re looking for an affordable and romantic getaway in Virginia Beach, check out these Airbnb vacation rentals:

1. Glamping in style (150 USD)

Glamping is the portmanteau of two words, glamour and camping, and it’s been steadily increasing in popularity. If you and your significant other are adventurous and don’t mind living in close quarters with each other over a short period of time, why not check out this Airbnb? It’ll be parked in First Landing State Park and you’ll be surrounded not only by nature, but you’ll also be a walk away from the nearby beach.

Tiny cabins are extremely popular amongst people who enjoy glamping, many of them are eco-friendly and just the perfect size for a short vacation. Don’t shrug this rental off just because it looks tiny and unassuming; we can assure you that you’ll have an excellent time glamping in this cabin!

The campsite and the cabin have been decorated immaculately by the hosts and they are definitely aesthetically pleasing! It looks rather like something out of a magazine spread or from a Pinterest board!

Glamping is essentially posh camping, so you shouldn’t spend all the time cooped up in the luxurious camp cabin. Make sure to indulge in some classic camp activities like lounging outdoors in a hammock and making s'mores at the fire pit provided.

Many reviews have mentioned that the best way to navigate around the campsite is by bike. The hosts do provide some bikes, so make use of them to explore the trails in the park. Or perhaps even bike to some nearby spots for a romantic dinner!

Despite being quite a small cabin, it’s still shocking to see how a relatively large and comfortable futon can fit in it. The cabin is well-designed and all the space was made use to maximise comfort. After a long day glamping and exploring the site, it sure is the perfect place to lay back and get some shut-eye!
