Overview

About the property

Cottage with Pillow-top Queen, Two Full Leather Pull-outs, Kitchen and Bath.

Vacation in a tranquil setting on beautiful Back Bay. View incredible sunsets from your back yard after a day of swimming and fishing in the fresh water of Back Bay or after a day of surf and sand on the beach. Play tennis at our clubhouse, swim in two pools, relax in a hot tub, hike or bike through a nature trail in Back Bay, go kayaking, rent jet skis right next door or go fishing in the Atlantic Ocean on the Pier at Sandbridge Beach right across the street. If you wander long enough on the nature trails of Back Bay's 4,600 acres of Wildlife Preserve you could end up in North Carolina! Back Bay is listed as one of the top 10 Must See Virginia Beach activities with a 92% thumbs up rating.

This cottage is located at Outdoor Resorts in Virginia Beach at Sandbridge Beach, Unit #148 This cottage has a full kitchen and bath, sleeps 2 adults and 4 children, killer Wifi, 50 inch HD cable TV, and is located right on the water with your own private dock and a 400 sq foot deck with a large awning right across from one of the two pools and bath house.

The master bedroom has a luxurious pillow top Queen Size bed. Instead of a small second bedroom, this cottage has a large great room for daytime fun with two leather couches that pull out into two full beds. The unit has its own Wifi and the deck has top of the line Adirondack Chairs, a table with plenty of seating and a gas grill. This cottage is located in one of the only places in the world where you can wake up on the banks of a fresh water National Wildlife Preserve and walk across the street to swim or surf in the ocean. It is impossible to find accommodations any closer to the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. To check out this incredible national treasure just Google 'Back Bay Virginia'. The ocean and beach is less than a 2 minute walk across the street from the front of the resort. It is truly a remarkable location.

New for 2017! I have traveled a bit lately and will be making some changes to your arrival package based on my experiences as a renter using the VRBO service. All 7 day rentals will come with a complete linen package at no additional charge. This will include professionally cleaned bed linens, bath towels, washcloths, and kitchen towels. You will still need to bring your own beach towels. Also, I will also make sure the unit has a starter roll of paper towels, toilet paper and a trash bag. The first thing you should do upon arrival is dip your feet in the bay and NOT have to run to Walmart. For renters less than 7 days there is a $30 professional cleaning fee for linens that will be added to your invoice. Please let me know in advance if you will be bringing your own linens and do not want this service.

The Summer Combo Package is incredibly popular and is reserved almost every week of the summer by one of our guests. $400 gets you the combination to the owner's shed. Some of the items include bicycles and helmets, beach chairs, basketball, tennis rackets and tennis balls, Kayak, stand up Paddle Board, life vests, bath towel and linens, fishing rod and tackle box (for liability purposes actual tackle must be purchased separately - there is a store just outside our gate) and more! The package is priced near the cost of renting just a few bikes for the week from local vendors. Please note we own and rent two units and this package serves each unit on a first come first served basis only. If you have an interest, please inquire about the Summer Combo Package as soon as possible. There must be someone in your party staying in the unit who is older than 25. Maximum adult occupancy is 2 adults.

About Paul DiNardo

Our family lives in Virginia Beach and we purchased the unit at Sandbridge as a weekend get-away. It has been a blast, but with the passage of time the children grew up. All are either in or out of college except for one high schooler. While the cottage has been maintained, it has sat largely empty the past several years. So we decided to rent it out.

Paul DiNardo purchased this recreational vehicle in 2004

Why Paul DiNardo chose Virginia Beach

This cottage was used personally and was never rented until July 2014 so it is in excellent shape. It has a huge great room with 2 leather couches and the full size kitchen has plenty of utensils. It was our family vacation house for years and we have taken very good care of it.

What makes this recreational vehicle unique

This cottage is on one of the larger lots and can handle parking for 3 cars. It has a huge deck with a heavy duty awning that covers about half of the deck.

Nicely kept cozy location.

  • 5 of 5

Overall it was a great weekend. Owner was very responsive to all inquiries. Comfortable beds and clean facilities. Just a short 5 minute walk to the beach. It was myself and my husband and 2 young daughters that stayed the weekend. It was enough room for us to be comfortable.

Great experience! We will come back next summer!

  • 5 of 5

Paul was very helpful during the reservation, and our stay as well. He was quick responding to our questions. The unit is clean and has plenty of kitchenware. The location is perfect. We went fishing and boating on the spot! The beach is only one block away from the gate of the resort. One nice thing about this unit is that the pool is just across the street. We plan to come back next summer!

The camper was clean and as described. Everything in the house worked.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this property! Beautiful sunsets every night. Could fish and crab right off the dock. We especially enjoyed the bikes and rode them every where including the beach and nearby state parks which were amazing! The dock and covered porch were great! Loved Sandbridge Beach and if we came back would definitely stay here again! Paul did everything possible to make our stay an enjoyable one!

The place was very clean and everything was ready for us. Caught a lot of fish in the evenings off the private dock. Nice and peaceful.
