About the property

BOOKING NOW

for 2018 and we have big plans for upgrades to the property for next season!!! We are putting in new flooring and living room and dining room furniture and will be putting on a fresh coat of paint. thats not all....

We will be fully booked like last year by February so book now if you want your choice of weeks...

This house already

has the great location

and a big pool, we are right on the beach and only one block from the fully stocked market/deli and restaurant /bar and public beach. This classic beach cottage sleeps 11 in beds. There is also a converted garage that serves as a game room/ hangout.( extra bunk beds there) so actually we can sleep 13. We added a big window to that room for more light and a flat screen, and new sliders upstairs last season and more seating on the decks and poolside and in main salon. Several of the analog televisions you see in the photos have been replaced with flat screens.. This place is comfortable. You can walk to shopping and beach and never get in your car!

In 2015 we renovated the kitchen with a new floor, granite counter tops and refinished cabinets. New cookware. Replaced the sofa, put in new deck furniture and a new Air Conditioning system. New paint. Landscaping around the pool. All of the pictures are current.

We have a clean and well maintained property for your vacation.

This house is walking distance to the public beach, market and restaurant! You don't have to get in your car to do anything, its all nearby! There are not many places in Sandbridge that can say that.

. We have Wi-fi . 5 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths

Sandbridge is a quiet little beach neighborhood several miles south of the Virginia Beach strip just to the north of the North Carolina line. Sandbridge is sometimes referred to as 'the Outer Banks of Virginia'. We have 5 bedrooms, and sleep 13 people comfortably in beds. There is a set of bunk beds in the bunk room, but we do not advertise it as a regular sleeping area. The bunk room is a detached garage that has been converted to its own space with a ping pong table, fridge, bunk beds, and flat screen Smart TV. Bring your XBox or video games and hook up to the TV. Kids love it as a getaway from the parents, but we don't recommend this as a sleeping area. It does not have a bathroom or closet.

We widened the driveway which was a problem in past years. Ample parking! Since there is no on street parking this has really made parking easier.

This house is semi-oceanfront, with views and sounds of the ocean. We are one row back from the first line of Oceanfront homes. The beach is really close and we actually are on the dunes and have a dune in our front yard. The large pool is on the other side of the house and gets great afternoon sun.

We are only one block from the public beach where lifeguards are on duty in the summer months. If you have small children this is a big plus. The street in front is generally for local traffic and has very little traffic, even in the peak of summer. Beach access is right across this sleepy little road.

You can walk down this little street about a block or so to the local market for morning coffee, fresh doughnuts and the newspaper. You can watch the sunrise from the front deck while the others sleep and look forward to another sunny day at the beach. In the evenings, some of our guests like to enjoy cocktails on the front deck looking out over the ocean.

Next to the fully stocked market and deli is a wonderful restaurant with ocean views and excellent food. In the evenings it is fun to walk from the restaurant over to the yogurt shop for dessert before walking home. If you don't like getting in your car to go everywhere you don't have to.

There are other restaurants a few minutes drive away. The Baja rocks with live music most nights in the summertime.

Back Bay Wildlife Refuge is just a few minutes south and you sometimes see wild horses and pigs and other wildlife year-round.

If you want to cook there is a fully stocked kitchen, a gas grill on the front deck with ocean views and large areas for dining either inside or on the front or back decks.

Hell's Point Golf Course is about 5 minutes up the road and is consistently ranked in the top 100 of all public courses in the country. Tennis courts and playgrounds and a fishing pier are another 5 minutes in the other direction.

The close proximity to the beach, neighborhood center and public facilities mean you don't need to get in your car for days at a time..

... If you want more action you are only a few minutes drive to great shopping, restaurants, the nightlife of the resort strip of Virginia Beach or another hour or so to Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens and Water Country.

Sandbridge is surrounded by the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and as a result there is no through traffic. All traffic headed for Sandbridge is going only to Sandbridge. This remoteness is part of the charm of this fabulous little beach. It is out of the way but still very accessible to everything.

You can expect a relaxing vacation on an uncrowded beach right in front of this well appointed home......Give us a call or email us for more details and rental information if you have more questions about the house or Sandbridge Beach. We look forward to hearing from you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was great. The pictures really don't do it justice. The pool and hot tub was such a wonderful addition to the experience. For my family the open-air kitchen and livingroom was the most enjoyable. We could cook and socialize and play games together all in the same vicinity. The location was perfect. We enjoyed long walks along the road and also along the beach in the mornings. The view was exactly as promised. We could open the curtains and watch the sunrise right from our living areas and the front deck. Our vacation experience was more than expected and we would certainly recommend this home and consider renting it again in the future.

So cute and perfect.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our family Vacation of 11 people. Perfect distance to the beach access and easily able to get to town and other areas. When we return we hope to rent this same place. We absolutely loved it!! The only issue we had was the carpeting was not cleaned very well before we arrived, but we used a vacuum and did it ourselves. The pool was very well taken care of as well as the hot tub. Just cannot say enough about this house.

Owner's Response: For future reference , our cleaning supervisor leaves a card asking you to call her to come out if there is anything not to your satisfaction. Or call me next time and we will make sure everything is clean. We are putting in new carpet for next summer anyway! Sometimes if a previous guest leaves the house in a mess we have only a short time on Saturday to do the cleaning. That's not an excuse just an explanation. Thanks for the nice review. I like the fact it's so close to everything by walking distance. This is huge plus for kids who can go get ice cream or sodas or toys and parents don't have to leave their beach chairs or pool lounges to drive them!!

Meets standard

  • 2 of 5

I arrived and had not received an accurate pass code to enter. This was VRBO's fault. The owner was responsive and helped. I did not like the lack of privacy. Neighbors were always on deck and looking down in yard. Accomodations were great. Beds were super comfortable.

Owner's Response: The access code is displayed on the Hospitality page. Sometimes people don’t check this page. We try to tell people to do this. Tonya here didn’t check it so she called VRBO. They mistakenly gave her the code for one of my other properties! She called me and we straightened it out. So remember to check the hospitality page ! There is a House right behind us that must have had a big crowd that weekend We have never had a complaint before about them. The house is private. But it is in the heart of the resort area of Sandbridge. We are two blocks from the public beach. Yet we are still very quiet and private. We are pleased she had a good time but we are a little surprised that there is only two stars The house met all her needs and they liked it. Most of our reviews are 4 or 5 stars. Well I guess we will try even harder!!

The property is good. The owner was easy to get a hold of with questions and very easy to work with.

This is a perfect family beach home. The view of the ocean is beautiful from the front deck, which has great shade by evening that makes it very comfortable have dinner on each night. The kitchen has everything you need to make meals, and the added touch of the granite countertop is nice. Our family used the hot tub and pool daily which were very clean, and great to come back to If the beach got too hot. The convenience of being able to walk across the street to the beach is amazing, along with the market being less than a five minute walk makes this location perfect. The washer & dryer are always an added bonus! Not to mention being able to bring our dog made our vacation complete. As stated in previous reviews, the house could use some updating with furniture in the living room, and the cleanliness isn't topnotch, however, that shouldn't hinder anyone from renting this home. The couches are comfortable & well loved. And there is always going to be sand somewhere in a beach house, and a few dust bunnies in the corners, after all we are there to make memories and enjoy the beach, not stay at a five star hotel with room service. This beach home is perfect for families who are there to play and relax. We look forward to renting it again in the future.

Perfect family vacation home!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great relaxing week here...only a short walk to the ocean, the corner market, and the ice cream store! The kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub almost as much as the ocean. The house was nicely laid out with multiple sleeping arrangements, adequately furnished with all the necessities, plus a view of the ocean. Our family of 6 adults and 3 kids appreciated the relative quiet of the neighborhood, yet we were only a short drive from Sandbridge or Virginia Beach if anyone wanted more things to do (which they didn't!). You couldn't ask much more of a beach house!

The location of this house is awesome, close to everything, the beach , market and shops.

  • 3 of 5

The house has a view of the beach from the front porch where we at dinner every evening in the shade. You can walk to the market, a restaurant and the 2 beach shops and an ice cream shop. Couldn't ask for a better location. Rented bikes for the week and used them everyday, riding on the road but minimal traffic so it was nice. The house has a nice pool and hot tub. We had a few problems but the home owner had them fixed the next day. The house is a little older and could use some updates, all in all it was a wonderful week at the beach!
