It's a private community managed by the Aquia Harbour Property Owners Associations, Inc. with a 24 hour security gate, a 24 hour fully certified police department, management and office staff, grounds and maintenance personnel, swimming pools, marina, country club/banquet facility, golf course, restaurant, stable with both indoor and outdoor riding arenas, ball fields, co-op pre-school, tennis courts, parks, dog park, jogging paths, playgrounds, fishing and natural area.
Over 90% of the Community is developed, and nearly 7,000 residents, including 2,000 children call Aquia Harbour their home. Many commute to northern Virginia, Richmond, Dahlgren and points between and beyond. We are conveniently located 8 miles from MCB Quantico and 25 miles from Fort Belvoir. Convenient daily commuter buses run from Stafford direct to the Pentagon and downtown Washington. As Stafford County's largest subdivision, Aquia Harbour represents over 10% of the County population.
Aquia Harbour has a strong community spirit and is geared towards family living. A prime example is the Annual Easter Egg Hunt, with three age categories and helpers assigned to assist children in finding the eggs; another is the Christmas Tree Lighting at the Business Office, complete with caroling and hot chocolate
