"Hidden Gem in Hampton Roads"

Absolutely perfect location for anyone stationed at the Newport News Shipyard. The commute is around 15 minutes across the James River Bridge. A wonderful family friendly community, with lots of planned events. We can walk to the community shopping center with a Food Lion, restaurants, hair salon, doctors office, etc. We love that we feel like we are in the country, but can be in the city within 15 minutes. Very close to two wonderful YMCAs! This is truly a hidden gem!

Update: We love the schools! The school bus picks up right in front of our house also! Score! ;) The Christmas parade in Smithfield was so cute! We've only been here 6 months and felt so welcomed here. I highly recommend this community.

Pros Cons
  1. Proximity to base/city without being in it
  2. Family Friendly
  3. Walkability
  4. Beautiful large homes!

"Country Living in Hampton Roads"

Eagle Harbor in Carrollton, VA is a small town in Isle of Wight County, close to Smithfield. Just a few years ago, it was a bunch of soybean fields, and now it is a lovely neighborhood with a grocery store, pharmacy, dry cleaners, a few restaurants, and more. It is the perfect location for Peninsula-based people, as it is just 2 minutes from the James River Bridge, and for those stationed in Portsmouth and Norfolk, no HRBT or MMMBT. Eagle Harbor has apartments, townhouses, and single family homes and has a great clubhouse and pool!

Pros Cons
  1. Beautiful Homes
  2. Well-Maintained Common Areas
  3. Small town, but close to city amenities
  4. Mix of all branches of military
  1. Fairly strict neighborhood covenants
