Recent reviews of Independent Living in Virginia Beach, VA
Chesapeake Place Senior Living
5.0

It is very clean and bright here. I love that there is so much natural light throughout the community. It is beautiful and we really enjoyed all of the artwork everywhere. I have toured several places in multiple cities and this one is the best looking of all that I have seen. I loved seeing all of the activities and engagement between staff and residents. I will be bringing mom here for a respite stay when I go on vacation at the end of summer.
