Sandbridge Beach is peacefully nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Back Bay at the southeast tip of Virginia and is often referred to as the 'Outer Banks of Virgina'. It is also home to Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Sandbridge is the ideal location for those who want the 'get-away-from-it-all' atmosphere yet is only 15 minutes to numerous entertainment and leisure activities such as: golf courses, water parks, aquarium/museum, movies, shopping, dining, concerts, and the Virginia Beach Resort Area and Boardwalk. Little Island Park at the southern tip of Sandbridge has a fishing pier, beach lifeguards, covered picnic area, great playground, showers, restrooms, snack bar, tennis courts, basketball court, and plenty of parking.

'He Crab, She Crab' is a charming waterfront home with an open floor plan, making it ideal for family retreats, yet has plenty of rooms and porches for relaxation and privacy. The second level has 2 Bedrooms including a Master Suite, 2 Bathrooms, Great Room, Kitchen, Dining Area, and Florida Room. The Great Room, Florida Room, and Dining Area are lined with sliding glass doors and windows overlooking the canal and leading to a large wrap-around deck. The deck accesses a 3rd story widow's walk offering panoramic views and incredible sunsets.

The first level has 3 Bedrooms, one of which can be used as a Nursery. The Master Bedroom on the first level has a King size Sleep Number bed and sliding doors leading to a screened porch overlooking the canal. The 3rd Bedroom overlooks the covered front porch. This level also has a large bathroom with a 2-sink vanity, a laundry room, and a back entrance leading to a large back yard with swing set/sandbox. There you will also find a private outdoor shower that is perfect for rinsing off after the beach or for taking a relaxing shower while star gazing.

This waterfront home is located on a large access canal leading to Back Bay making it ideal for kayaks, canoes, and pedal boats. The boat dock is great for fishing and crabbing. The quiet neighborhood street is perfect for your short walk to the beach or for biking, jogging, roller-blading, or just plain strolling while watching the gorgeous sunsets over Back Bay.

Once you arrive, you will be able to enjoy the privacy of your vacation home with amenities found in no other. No need to rush to the store upon arrival for basic supplies just to freshen up. We provide products such as paper towels, toilet tissue, tissues, and liquid hand soap to get you through at least a few days. To help you avoid the hassle of packing or the expense of buying supplies you may only need a few times during your stay, we provide all dishwashing detergent, dishwashing liquid, laundry detergent, and dryer sheets. An assortment of cleaning supplies is provided for any touch-ups needed during your stay. In addition to the kitchen being fully stocked with all cooking and dining essentials, you will also find coffee filters, sugar, flour, and an assortment of spices.

Utilize our “concierge” services to avoid wasting precious time while on your vacation. We will personally provide restaurant, shopping, and area attraction information as well as directions at any time during your stay. We will even help you plan your vacation activities and help tailor them to your needs.

Don't forget to come enjoy the beautiful fall weather. Great location for fishing, golfing, and enjoying our beautiful, uncrowded beach.
