Welcome to Sandbridge Beach! You’ll be delighted to live the real beach life in this Southern Virginian community. Where wild horses still roam, dolphins play in the water, and the occasional sea turtle comes up to nest. Here in Sandbridge, you and your family can get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Come spend your days relaxing on the beach while your children play in the waves on our lifeguarded beaches. Whether you’re looking for a new surfing, hiking, kayaking adventure, Sandbridge is the place to be. For a relaxing day, there’s lots of fishing, whether it be from the pier or the shore or crabbing in one of the inlets or the bay.
The Equine Innovations breeding stable is located in the rear of the property and the barn living quarters are typically occupied. On-site keepers and daily barn staff are available to you for assistance staging outdoor activities (horse-play, volleyball nets, etc). We hold your privacy with high regard, but love to make ourselves available to serve as needed!

We stayed at the Seahorse for 9 nights. Everything you will need is in the house including a Kitchen Aid and a pasta making attachment. We enjoyed watching the horses from all the windows in the house. We had my 91 years old Aunt with us who is in a wheel chair. The back wing was perfect for her. And we were able to sleep near her so we could here her if she needed something. My grandkids loved all the activities in the house. From pool to ping pong to basketball and many more. The owners were so nice and never bothered you but if you needed some they were right there. We would recommend the Seahorse. We hope to vacation there again.
Terrific place to stay and relax
We really enjoyed our week in the house. It is massive so it allows for privacy and yet has a large space for gathering in the living room/great room. David checked in with us on several occasions to be certain everything was fine. The hot tub was a nice way to relax after visiting the shipyards,museums, and beach combing. It was nice to look out the windows and see horses in the front and back paddocks. Another treat was having a working fireplace as the first couple of days were overcast and cool. The firewood was stacked on the hearth and outside on the deck so it was easily accessible. There was enough cookware available to feed a small army. The pantry was stuffed with pots, pans, roasters, cast iron, and appliances that I can't even name :)
Great home, friendly owner. We loved the place.
Hello again, Viorel! Thank you very much for your kind review. We enjoyed having your group at The Seahorse and would love to host you again :)
Wonderful Place To Stay
Our stay at the Seahorse was wonderful. There were 7 of us coming from 3 different states for a family get together. The house is big and spacious. The kitchen had everything we could need and then some. Large table in dining room was perfect for meals and games. Lots of stuff provided which was a big bonus, such as paper products, soaps, towels, etc. We liked having the water cooler too. We enjoyed the hot tub, ping pong, pool table, corn hole and there was so much more to do if you had time. Everyone had their own bedroom and bathroom and the beds were very comfortable. It was very peaceful and quiet, very relaxing. The location was great, convenient to the beach, to the stores, restaurants and most everything. Definitely worth the money to stay here and could not ask for better people to rent from. Many thanks to the Sheffield family for making their lovely home available, for the extras they provide and for the friendliness they showed us from the moment we pulled into the driveway.
Donna, we are so very pleased that you and your guests enjoyed your stay at The Seahorse. Thank you very much for your kind words and we hope you will stay at The Seahorse again soon!
The property offered everything I wanted in my stay. I loved the property and Lilly (horse).
