  • Great Place

    "This was my first time in Sandbridge. And I am happy that I spent it at the Sandbridge Treasure. I got into town early and the owners let's us in before 4. The condo is clean and well kept. You can walk out onto the balcony and and see the ocean. Great and convient access to the beach , the parking garage and the pool. Noise is never an issue because the pools and pool grill close at a decent time. There are plenty of gas grills to use in the pool area. And they are kept clean. You can rent an umbrella from Seaside Adventures off of Sandbridge Rd for $30 weekly. There is a Foodlion at the entrance to Sandbridge . Overall we had a great time and would come back"

  • Great location and GREAT DEAL!

    "This is a place where you get a BANG for your BUCK! My family spent a week here this summer and loved it! I have a 1 year old son and being on the Bay rather than the Ocean was perfect for him. It was also great being right on the beach with a little one. We didn't have to pack everything up each time we went inside to eat or for his nap time etc.... Like any beach house, there was some wear and tear. But for what you pay for a week you can't beat it! Things to know: Make sure you bring your own garbage bags, toilet paper, paper towels, any cleaning supplies, sponges, and BBQ grill tools. The BBQ was fantastic and CLEAN! A great local place to eat was HK on the Bay. It is walking distance from the condo and was YUMMY! I would recommend staying on the Bay over the Ocean any day for a family. It is peaceful and much less crowded. The bridge is beautiful at night! We would definitely come back and I would recommend this property to others! The manager Ed was wonderful in answering all my questions and concerns. "

  • Incredible Home

    "House was wonderful. We had three generations with us, and it was a great place to call our home for the week. With four bedrooms, there was enough room for everyone. We used the front screened in porch for meals as well as in the evening. The walk to the beach is so very short. There were plenty of beach supplies (toys, chairs, etc.) for our family of 7. The location is great as well--the beach is not full of tourists as you are not in the heart of the city. We were able to drive into town as needed, as it is only a five minute drive. Also, the outdoor shower--knowing that my kids were not dragging in the sand each time they returned from the beach was great!"

  • WOW!

    "Stayed at the beatufully appointed condo the last week of August. Weather could have been better, but that is out of owner's control. The Unit was gorgeous and having both front and back balonies was nice. The area is nice, although that week the East Coast Surfing Championships were going on and it was jammed with people. Lots of action. Have stayed at Dolphin Run, but not this unit, at other times and what is nice about this area is the family orientation. Did not like the crowded area this time, but as far as this unit, I would recommend it highly. Flat screen TV and DVDs, games, books, Petrine has thought of everything for the vacationer. Even though it says retractable roof for pool, it is indoors. Staff is very nice and helpful. Parking for a second car is pricey and not in a secured lot as it is for first car. Within walking distance to great food at Rudee's Inlet. Trolleys run regularly, so you do not need to drive if you don't want to. Also, at nearby Norfolk, there is alot to see and do including AAA Baseball in season. Golf courses are great and reasonably priced. Highly recommend!!!!!!!!!"

Virginia Beach Travel Tips

Located on the coast where the Chesapeake meets the Atlantic, Virginia Beach has long been a vacation destination with something for everyone. Come here for a mixture of East Coast class and lovely relaxing beaches.

While you're spending time at the different beaches you might catch a glimpse of dolphins playing in the water and surfers trying to catch the perfect wave on the southern end of the Rudee Inlet and alongside the 14th Street pier. If you're feeling adventurous, grab a surfboard and hang ten.

Virginia Beach enjoys an excellent subtropical climate. You can expect very mild winters with only light snowfall and hot, humid summers that melt into warm evenings spent strolling along the boardwalk or through town. No matter what season you visit, there are a lot of indoor and outdoor activities with a variety of state parks, historic sites and local attractions to visit.

Things to Do in Virginia Beach

- Virginia Aquarium: If you're looking for a fun activity everyone can enjoy, especially marine life lovers, plan a visit to the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center. It's located just south of the Rudee Inlet and features more than 800,000 gallons of fresh and saltwater displays. The two main exhibits here are the Bay and Ocean Pavilion and the March Pavilion, which are connected by an outdoor nature trail. More than 12,000 animals from 700 different species are represented here, so there's a lot to see, like crabs, sea stars, fish, birds and more!

- Adam Thoroughgood House: Step back in time with one of the oldest surviving Colonial homes in Virginia. The Adam Thoroughgood House is a brick structure that was built in 1720. It underwent restorations in the 1920s and 1950s and is now a museum. Take a tour of this historic home to learn more about the family that lived here as well as how the area has grown and developed since the home was built.

- Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art: Whether you're an art aficionado or someone who appreciates great beauty, you'll enjoy a visit to the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art. The MOCA features changing exhibits that display works in painting, sculpture, photography, glass, video and other visual medias from regional, national and international artists. Along with the galleries, the museum also provides studio art classes, outdoor art shows and an educational outreach program. As you wander through the space, you can marvel at the variety of works and appreciate the craftsmanship of the artists.

There are also places to cast a fishing line and take a refreshing swim. First Landing is Virginia's most popular state park and an excellent place to enjoy a picnic lunch surrounded by gorgeous natural scenery.

- Sandbridge Beach: This secluded area offers you 5 miles of stunning sand and awesome dunes. You can easily slow down here, relax and enjoy the tranquil sounds of the water and the cool breeze across your face. For those looking for a little more adventure, you can take to the waters or the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and False Cape State Park for kayaking and fishing.

Dining in Virginia Beach

- Black Angus Restaurant: If you're a steak lover, a meal at Black Angus is a must. It's one of Virginia Beach's oldest restaurants - it was founded in 1953 - and it is located on the oceanfront. Options like New York Strip, prime rib and filet mignon are sure to have your mouth watering. If you prefer a different entree, there's also seafood and salads.

- Catch 31: When you're at the beach, dining on fresh seafood is a must. Catch 31 has an open-air kitchen and hardwood grill, and it serves more than 15 varieties of fish like tuna, striper and lobster. The raw bar features oysters, crab, shrimp, mussels and more. Sip a signature cocktail or a glass of wine from the excellent list on the outdoor terrace as you watch the waves.

- One Fish Two Fish: This restaurant opened in 2000 and has become a local favorite, as it is centered around its exhibition kitchen where you can watch the chefs at work. Choose from a an array of fresh seafood like Ahi, shrimp, crab, flounder and more for dinner and pair your dish with a variety of wines that have been recognized with Wine Spectator's "Award of Excellence." As you dine you can marvel at panoramic views of the water.

Chesapeake Bay

If you want a completely different beach experience, head away from the Atlantic and northwest to the bayside to check out the Chesapeake Beach at First Landing State Park. Aside from relaxing on this beach just off Shore Drive, there are nine excellent biking, jogging and walking trails that cover a collective 19 miles. Don’t miss the Bald Cypress Trail, a 1.5-mile loop a slightly hilly walk with several boardwalks and observation platforms that takes you through both wetlands filled with cypress swamps and sand dunes. Or check out the Osprey Trail, which takes you on a scenic 1.2-mile stroll or ride near Broad Bay tidal beach.

At the nearby military base, check out the famous Cape Henry lighthouse, which was originally built in 1792. In 1870, a new lighthouse was built less than 400 feet away from the old one and is still in use today by ships at sea.

Festivals and Events

Virginia Beach is home to some excellent yearly events. At the quirky, one-day Mid-Atlantic Hermit Crab Challenge, hosted on the beach at 30th Street, participants can enter their hermit crabs into the Crustacean 500 race and the Miss Curvaceous Crustacean Beauty Pageant. Hermits crabs often come decorated in a fancy shell and win trophies for biggest, shyest and most traveled crabs.

The Neptune Festival is an annual beachside event during the entire month of September. It’s host to the whimsical North American Sandsculpting Championship, Neptune’s 5k Run, the Atlantic Regatta and a surfing event. There’s also a wine festival and plenty of fabulous music and food. It’s located - where else? - in Neptune Park under the watchful gaze of a 34-foot bronze statue of Neptune, King of the Sea.
