About the property

FRIDAY-FRIDAY, 6 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 20)

All OF OUR RATES INCLUDE CLEANING FEES AND LINENS (additional security/damage deposit required).

Between May 25, 2018, only 7 day rentals will be accepted. All rental weeks will begin and end on a Friday. Friday check-ins let you beat the traffic into Sandbridge on the weekends. You will be enjoying the almost empty beaches on Saturday and Sunday while most vacationers are coming and going.

Updates completed Winter 2017....New patio and deck furnishings, outdoor fire pit, new interior coastal paint scheme, ceiling fans in all rooms, and updated coastal décor. More updates coming winter 2018.

This incredible property will be your "GREAT ESCAPE" from the ordinary. Our home is located one of the many navigable canals that make up the Back Bay Wildlife Preserve, perfect for boating, kayaking, and fishing! It is located in the quiet community of Sandbridge in Virginia Beach, VA, and is only a short 1-1/2 blocks from the ocean. A short distance away within the Sandbridge community are public tennis courts, basketball courts and playgrounds.

This beach house has six newly furnished bedrooms that are decorated to put you in a beachy state of mind. We work hard to keep the GREAT ESCAPE beach house clean and inviting for our guests. We also have some baby items on hand for your convenience (baby stroller, booster seat, high chair, and pack & play). A highspeed dual band wireless internet connection is also now available to connect to the web.


The first floor contains a large recreation room with a pool table/ping pong table and lounge area with TV, perfect for unwinding from a long day at the beach. Open up the sliding glass doors and you are on a covered patio overlooking your private pool and boat dock. There are also three bedrooms (1 queen room with a private bath) and two bathrooms on the first floor. The queen bedrooms are all equipped with 32' flat screen televisions with cable TV for catching up on those favorite shows and events. This floor also contains a laundry area with 2 washers and dryers for your personal use.


The second floor has wide open spaces that add to that light and bright airy feel that a beach house should have. The living room has a 60' television and a sectional big enough for everyone to get together on. The well stocked kitchen is complete with two dishwashers that make cleaning up a breeze after cooking that large family meal. The custom dining room table has plenty of chairs for the family and is a great place to play a board game or a game of cards. The master bedroom on this floor has a king bed and private bath with a whirlpool tub and a separate shower for freshening up for that evening meal. It also has deck access that overlooks the pool area. The second bedroom has a queen bed and twin bunkbeds with access to the deck that faces the bay and is a great place for that happy hour cocktail as you enjoy the sunset. Bedroom three on this floor has a queen bed with access to the front deck. The sunroom is a great place to read that novel or just open up the windows and take that afternoon nap.


The back deck overlooks the pool and the waterway and is the perfect spot to grill those burgers and dogs. The private pool is serviced at least twice a week during the summer so it is sparkling when you and your guests are ready to take a swim. Don't forget about the private crows nest deck on top of the house that gives you ocean and bay views while working on your tan. It is also the perfect spot to star gaze or catch an amazing sunrise and sunset.

This is an all inclusive property rental that includes everything you need to make your vacation worry-free. All linens, towels, and some beach gear are included so that all you need to do is show up with those flip flops on and a smile on your face. Let this property be your 'GREAT ESCAPE' from the ordinary.

'GREAT ESCAPE' is a great place for those large group vacation getaways. We're sure you'll enjoy being our guest!

Unless you have money to blow, document everything!

I'll start by saying that my family and I were not ready to leave when the time came. The home is perfectly located with ample space. The pool was perfect and we really enjoyed ourselves. The house is a bit worn: screens falling off track, closet door off track in basement, few holes/dings in walls, and a few boards coming unattached, fridge compartments falling off, but I expected it all for a property rental with people constantly in and out. There was a very bad smell in the home that we had a hard time getting rid and the AC couldn't seem to get below 75 but they responded promptly; there was nothing that could be done about the smell (repair that would take some time) and we just had to adjust to the AC capacity on the main floor. Because of the smell, my family was treated to the local TopGolf. The gentlemen that assisted with all of this was extremely flexible to our schedule and helpful.

The bad...after departure, I was promptly informed that half of my security deposit would be kept due to "excessive cleaning" listed as feces or vomit in/on a toilet, liquids in trash cans, trash on floors, and 2 beds being left with wet stains. I cleaned the kitchen daily to include putting the dishes away and left very few dishes in the dishwasher when it was time to go. I emptied every trashcan in the house and even flipped the ones in the bathroom upside down. The book states to start laundry with detergent pods provided in the laundry room. There were none so I purchased soap, cleaned towels, folded and put them away in the upstairs closet. I stripped every bed in the home so I know that there were no wet spots. One bed had very old, dry stains; not from us. If there was any trash on the floors, it had to be small enough for a vacuum because I walked through to make sure. No one got sick. There was nothing extra in regards to the cleanliness of the bathrooms.

This was unfortunate and in my case, will never happen again. I know what it's like to have tenants disrespect what doesn't belong to them. I would never do such a thing nor would I allow my family. If anything, the cleaners had less to do. I am not one for throwing away money so I cleaned daily and to have 1/2 my security deposit kept based on lies is unfair and dishonest. If we'd done these things, I'd have no issue if the whole deposit was kept but this...terrible, 100% unexpected, unjustified ending to our vacay...Lesson learned--pictures before and after every stay!

Owner's Response: We are saddened to have caused this type of distress to one of our guests. We love our home and our guests and want each guest to enjoy our home and the Sandbridge area. Unfortunately, accidents happen from time to time that are above the reasonable wear and tear expected from the many large groups we host. When this happens, we work very closely with our cleaning crew to be fair and only assess what is actually needed to correct the situation and prepare the home for the next incoming guest just a few hours later. Our apology is most likely not enough in this situation, but it is sincerely offered.

Great Escape

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful property in a convenient location. Good fishing and crabbing right from the dock. Plenty of room for our group of 15. The home was clean and well maintained for the number of people that use it through the summer.

First time for our big family to stay in one big house which we really enjoyed

  • 4 of 5

House was nice and clean. Pool and canal were very nice to have and made everybody have fun. Kitchen was well equipped

We had some issues, and when contacting the owner she responded in a timely manner.

1.third floor is nicely updated, but first and second floor needed updates

2. Listing says there is a ping pong table, was not there and when asked about it owner said that previous tenants ruined it but didn’t get a replacement

3. Air condition could not get temperature below 71, when contacted the owner she sent a technician that said it need charge but never charged it.

4. When it rains, water get into the lower level

5. Pool table was not leveled

Awesome Stay in Sandbridge

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at this home. The place was very roomy and well taken care of. All the furnishings were in good condition and the house was very well stocked with everything we could have needed. We will definitely rent this one again. Loved the location!!
