Lhasa Sunset is a cozy family cottage in Outdoor Resorts of Sandbridge Beach, just south of Virginia Beach's boardwalk area. Lhasa Sunset features 2 bedrooms, queen and double beds. Living,, dining area and fully equipped kitchen.

I named this cottage Lhasa Sunset because of the enjoyment of relaxing on the large covered deck and watching the beautiful sunsets over Back Bay. The deck has a large table and chairs for outdoor dining. There is a gas grill for outdoor grilling. Yes, I had Lhasa Apsos.

The resort has two pools, hot tub, exercise room, laundry rooms and more. Walk to the beach, Little Island park and fishing pier or walk the 1.5 mile paved road around the resort.

About Bev Sims, Owner

The owner, Beverley, has been vacationing in Sandbridge since the 1970's when the area was a secluded camping Mecca. This was before any development had taken place. First piece of property was bought in 1998 as a place to vacation in our motor home. We fell in love with the resort concept, folks of Sandbridge community. We added other properties over the next 5 years. We have enjoyed renovating each cottage on a 3 year cycle. Keeping everything new and fresh. We sold our motor home in 2009. Now we have out own cottage. Beverley was a member of the Virginia Beach Rescue Squad for years; a member of Sandbridge Civic Association, served on the Mayor's council for Senior Citizens, and is an active participant with the Neptune Festival. Email Bev and ask about the Neptune Festival.

Bev Sims, Owner purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Bev Sims, Owner chose Sandbridge Beach

Beverley choose to purchase a cottage in Sandbridge to enable families to enjoy nature and its beauty in a safe environment. The owner is a retired science teacher who loves to educate guests on the exciting history of the area as well as the amazing geology and ecological concerns of Back Bay.

What makes this cottage unique

By staying at Lhasa Cottages, you are in an individual cottage. No more banging doors of hotel rooms, people noise through walls. Very private and quiet. Guests only have to bring linens, bed and towels, themselves, and food and clothing. Guests enjoy walking around the resort in the evening, watching the magnificent Sunset over Back Bay, sitting, on the boat launch and listening to live music from Baja.

Nice for a short getaway

  • 4 of 5

Debbie and Bev were both very welcoming, and the trailer had everything we needed. It would be small for more than two, at least for any length of time, but it was great for the two of us for a long weekend. Quick walk to the beach, easy to ride bikes to the wildlife refuge, and comfy just to hang out and read on the deck.

Owner's Response: I enjoyed having you as guests at the beach. Looking forward to your return. A winter bike ride through the Refuge and a Blue Goose ride along the beach to NC is a delightful experience. Take along Sandbridge donuts and hot chocolate. Yummy Thank you for taking care of my cottage. Bev

Good Value for Money

  • 3 of 5

We are used to staying in a large, ocean front house, but booked at the last minute. Our "home-away" was in a well-kept community of mobile homes that's just a street over from ocean front.


. Low cost.

. Client-friendly staff.

- Included amenities like air-conditioning, dishes, utensils, television.

. Very clean.

. Playground, Laundry Room, Pool close by.

. Friendly neighbors.


. One Bedroom is behind the Bathroom (have to walk thru).

. Same Bedroom does not get as cool as rest of house.

. Bathroom/Bedroom separated by a sliding door.

. Ceilings are low and ceiling fans easy to accidentally hit while dressing.

. Some noisy dogs early morning.

. Community is across the street from the beach, but to walk to beach, you have to go through the community, across the street and down another short street to get there (bit of a hike with chairs and toys).

Love this little gem!!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this little gem of a cottage. even though it is an RV it felt cozy and we were very comfortable.All the boxes for our needs were checked. Freindly resort people too.Awesome resort area.Close walk to beach and pools were great. Sandbridge is the best place for low key vacation. Bev was next door and she was very accommodating for our needs. And thanks for the "hot water" tip also. Will be back next year for sure hopefully for 2 weeks! It was the best!!!!!!

Fit our vacation needs perfectly.

  • 5 of 5

Deb met us at the front of the community so she could get us checked in, give us our key and lead us to our "home away from home". Deb was helpful with recommendations of where to eat, what to see, and how to get around. The unit itself was exactly as advertised. It was clean and had everything we needed. We could watch the sunset from our "home". It was about a block's walk to the beach to see the sunrise each morning. I will definitely be staying here again when I return to Sandbridge. Highly recommended!
