Covid-19 Cleaning
Preparing for Phase 3

Atkinson Realty is committed to public health and safety as we navigate this unprecedented crisis. We recognize it is a time filled with uncertainty and we would like to offer our sincere gratitude for your patience and understanding as we work through this. Please review below for important updates and policy changes. As this situation develops, we will adjust accordingly.

Why Choose a Beach Cottage Vacation Rental?

 The comfort of seclusion. When you rent a vacation home, you and your family come in contact with few people. You do not pass strangers in hallways. You do not share an elevator, lobby or common area with the public. For the duration of your stay, contact with others takes place solely at your discretion – a feature that most hotels simply cannot offer.


Beaches are open! There are a few guidelines for you to follow to ensure everyone's health and safety. Below you will find the Virginia Beach Access Plan that outlines the guidelines:

  • Facial coverings are still required in all public indoor spaces and on public transportation.
  • Virginia's 50-person limit on gatherings in Phase 2 will expand to a 250-person limit.

Restaurants, Entertainment and Services

  • Virginia's 50-person limit on gatherings in Phase 2 will expand to a 250-person limit.
  •  Restaurants' capacity will be lifted, but physical distancing still required.
  •  Non-essential retail establishments' capacity limit will be lifted but with physical distancing still required.
  • Entertainment venues (including museums and zoos) will have their capacity limit raised to 50% with a max of 1,000 people in any space.
  • Gyms and fitness will have capacity limit raised from 30% to 75%.
  • Personal grooming servies will still need to follow all existing distancing requirements.
  • Childcare services can reopen across Virginia.
  • Public pools will be allowed to open up to 75% capacity, with distancing requirements in place.
