    Confused Hampton Roads Apartments...Recommendations? Anyone?

    Advertisements
    Although I've been looking for months now I still cant seem to find what I'm looking for: My husband is currently deployed (Europe/Africa) and of course I'm responsible for finding a place for us to live in VA when he returns in December 2012. We are newly married and I've never lived in VA before so I don't have a clue as to where to begin. We are looking for affordable but SAFE neighborhoods that are no more than 25-35 minute commute to the Amphibious Naval base in VA Beach.

    Does anyone live in or can recommend apartments in the Hampton Roads area? Of course I will do my research on the place to make sure it is a good fit for us but I'm trying to get some idea as to what areas I should shy away from, Are not safe, etc...

    Thanks in advance!

    We live right across the street from the Amphibious base in Waterford apartments. It's a gated complex with a gym and pool. They do not allow pets. The apartments aren't huge but they're new with beautiful kitchens and a very quiet and SAFE neighborhood.

    DB got a detailed list from Housing when we were looking for an apartment. I recommend speaking with them. They were very helpful and we found a great apartment!

    Thank you so much! I love new places! We don't need "huge" It's just the two of us. Idk why I'm just seeing this...*Guess I'm still getting the hang of everything (Newbie)* Haha! Thanks though...You've been very helpful! Gonna go look at them now.
