“I dare say the word magic applies here! How can a place be this elegant, this wide open, and yet feel so quaint, just like home? How can an experience be quirky, fun, and yet entirely serene and relaxing at the same time? Wiseacre Estate is this and so much more! You owe yourself this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. You get eclectic art, uncommon architecture, an impressive landscape, a perfect location, a peaceful stay. What you get is MAGIC! But even better than magic… you get Chuck! Three hundred reviews cannot even come close to describing this “SuperHost with the Most”! Chuck is a RARE RARE blend of all of society’s niceties, like professionalism, politeness, charm, entertainment, discretion, and class. He is your present-day Mr. Roarke from the Fantasy Island television series of long ago, rolled up with a bit of Martha Stewart, and mixed in with whoever is your ideal Butler! His little leprechaun-like courtesies (i.e., covertly replacing the tissue box or having coffee brewed and ready for the day) will leave you feeling as though you are living a life of luxury, perhaps even a sweet little fairy tale of a life! If Wiseacre Estate is the dessert, Chuck is the gigantic cherry on top! I am going back for seconds every chance I get! I also genuinely wish this taste of peace and joy for all you beautiful traveling souls out there! I sincerely invite you to travel back in time at the enchanted Wiseacre Estate where Chuck makes the world seem absolutely surreal. (Oh, and the beds are deliciously comfortable, if you are coming for some well-needed rest!!!) A million thanks, Chuck Darling!”

“Bottom line: Excellent stay at a great value! KK's home was a wonderful place to stay as I prepared for a cross-country move. The location is quite convenient to I-64/264 and there are plenty of places nearby to eat, shop, and buy groceries. The home is also centrally located in the Hampton Roads area, making access to Norfolk, Virginia Beach, and Chesapeake a breeze. The AirBnB room at KK's house is spacious and clean and was stocked with all the towels, hangers, detergents, soaps, etc I needed during my stay. The attached bathroom was great. During my stay, I had all of the comforts of home with full access to the kitchen, fridge, pots/pans, washer, dryer, and even space in the storage shed out back for some of my boxed-up belongings. Parking was easy in KK's neighborhood as there is plenty of space on the street and not a lot of cars to contend with for spots. KK was very accommodating, especially when I needed to add an extra day to my stay to better align with my move/last day of work. KK was really friendly, but was also great about giving me space so that I could recharge after a long day. I stayed over two months and I really enjoyed it. I would highly recommend KK's place to anyone staying in the Norfolk/Virginia Beach area, especially those who are transitioning in or out of the area for work/school/military. If you enjoy walking or running outside, KK's neighborhood is a great place for that; there are sidewalks throughout and pleasing views as you walk or run along the roads adjacent to the Elizabeth River. KK's neighborhood is quiet, and I have absolutely no complaints from my stay. I did want to mention something that I had read in another review prior to reserving my stay with KK; one user stated that they had difficulty sleeping because of KK's making noise late at night. Let me set the record straight by saying that as a very light sleeper, I did not have any difficulty sleeping while staying at KK's house. I was worried going into my stay because of that one review (I almost didn't book because of it), but if KK was up late for any reason, she must have been very careful to be quiet, because I never noticed any noise and slept through the nights without any trouble. For any potential guests who may have come across the review I mentioned, please do not let this person's complaint deter you from staying with KK. As I said, I am a VERY light sleeper, and this supposed late-night noise did not affect my sleep at all.”
