Hello! We're PCS-ing to Norfolk NS next year 2017; 'C' School is Feb/March & work on base starts in April. Am E5 currently stationed at Nellis AFB in Las Vegas & we love it here (except for the scorching summers)! We live on base (Hunt Mil. Housing)& in 3 years have never once experienced any untoward incidents here; it is totally safe & secure & clean. Have heard a lot of negative stuff & horror stories about housing in Norfolk-crime, unscrupulous landlords/agencies, substandard apartments, etc., but I'm sure there is a positive side too. Have also looked at some posts here on the subject but they are mostly 4-6 years old. I was wondering where I could check out real-time or current postings and info about the Navy housing situation in the Norfolk/V.Beach/P'mouth area. Would ideally like as short commute as possible, a view of the ocean or the bay, and again, a generally safe area. We have a teenage daughter & two furbabies. Any input/info/recommendation is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
