About Lesa Lewter

My husband and I used to take our four kids to OBX every year for summer vacations. It was always so crowded and expensive. One day we stumbled across this place and we never went back to OBX. Here is what we love to do when we go to Sandbridge. We wake up in the mornings walk over to eat breakfast while looking out over the Bay at Baja's coffee shop. After breakfast we walk across the street right next to the condos to the beach access to begin our morning walks. While walking along the ocean we like to pick up the early morning seashells that the ocean has brought in. We have been fortunate enough to find a small star fish, a few sand dollars and conch shells. We have even seen baby sea turtles scurrying to get out to sea. We walk down to the wildlife refuge. After our morning walk we go back to our place and get our beach chairs to set up our place on the beach. Sitting out on the beach watching the dolphins and pelicans while reading a favorite book is pure joy. We can come and go through out the day leaving our chairs there until we are ready to go back over to the Bay. For dinner our favorite thing to do is call Margie and Rays for carry out and bring it back to our place and watch the sunset while eating out on the deck. The highlight of our day is sitting in the lounge chairs on the deck and watch the brilliant colors of the sunset. Time and time again we are in awe of such brilliance. During the evening we love to sit out on the pier looking up at all the stars. You can often hear the sound of the ocean even from our place.

As you can tell my husband and I love the water. For us it brings peace and tranquility from this crazy world. And that is what we want to do is provide a refuge for our guests to come and truly get away from it all. If they leave feeling refreshed we feel like our goal has been accomplished.

I have listed these ideas mentioned here as well as some of our other favorite places here on our website.

Lesa Lewter purchased this mobile home in 2006

Why Lesa Lewter chose Sandbridge Beach

This is an amazing location between these two bodies of water. We love walking over to the mighty ocean and then coming back to our own private retreat right on the bay. Many times the ocean is roaring and the bay is calm. Other times the ocean is more calm and the bay is churning. Just to experience these two forces is incredible. We feel we have the best view of all and many of our renters tell us the same thing. Many of them come back each year.

We are located within Outdoor Resorts. You can go to their website on line and find more information as well as directions. Just type in Outdoor Resorts and click on the link for Virginia Beach. It is a very well kept, quiet and family friendly resort.

What makes this mobile home unique

To listen to the sound of the water while watching the sunset is the ultimate means of relaxation. At times you can even hear the sound of the ocean waves from our location.

When inside you can look out any window from the unit and see the water. We love watching the fish jump and the blue and white herons come up to visit. Even the evenings to sit out on the pier looking up at the night sky and see the stars is awesome.

Sandbridge is not a crowded touristy beach place. You can get away from it all out here. The wildlife refuge with the trails just down from the resort offers a back to nature time. This is a little private get-away that not many know about yet keeps those who find out about it coming back each time. You'll be blessed to find this little place.

Owner's Response: Barbara, thanks for the thoughtful review. So glad it worked out for you to stay at our rental. We had just gotten a cancellation for that time. Anytime we can re-rent it we fully reimburse the one who cancelled. You guys got such beautiful weather. For those who don't care about swimming in the ocean October can be one of the best times to be there. It is quiet and so very peaceful. We love sitting out on the deck watching the birds fly overhead in their V formation for the winter. Or if it is cooler outside sitting inside with the electric fireplace running while watching the evening sunsets. No matter inside or out you always feel like you are out in nature with all the beauty. We are glad you guys got to experience it. Come again:)

Quiet, peaceful & relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

The home is perfect for us, just big enough and no extra work . We pulled in, unpacked and began enjoying the bay immediately. The views were constantly changing. We had daily visiters, loons, ducks and more. The jumping fish were a hit with the dogs. Speaking of the dogs, our girls were able to enjoy it too, with the huge yard and walking areas. We loved it and have already booked 2018. Margie & Ray's was a frequent stop and the beach was magnificent! Very clean and maintained, amazing bed and plenty of kitchen/dining areas. Lesa was awesome to deal with, so helpful and accommodating. Shopping for food easy at Food Lion - decent prices. We felt completely relaxed and are ready to return next year. You can't beat the price for that location and vicinity to the beach. Quite a value and everything you need in one little package. THANKS Lesa!! Blessings, Tom & Sharon Klepach, April May and Vivianne.

Owner's Response: Sharon, what a wonderful and detailed review you wrote for our rental in Sandbridge. I love how you said "no extra work"...you just pulled in and immediately enjoyed the view!" That is how a true relaxing vacation is supposed to be. We are especially glad to hear your furry friends had enough yard space. We find our guests with dogs love having their own private yard so as to not have to take them down an elevator or out for a distance such as the case with hotels. Glad the bed was comfortable for you too! That sure helps get a good night's sleep. Also, the cul-de-sac we are located in is so quiet and peaceful overlooking the Bay. Waking up each morning and opening the bedroom curtains is such an amazing view! Even rainy days the view is never dull. My husband and I love watching rain come over the Bay! And, you definitely found our favorite place to eat....Margie and Rays. Almost every time my husband and I go down there to clean we stop by Margie and Rays for breakfast! And thanks for mentioning that we keep it "very clean and maintained." We work hard on cleaning....changing mattress pads, pillow protectors, bathroom rug and everything for each guests. We clean it the way we would expect a place to be for us when away from home. We are blessed to have so many guests come back each year. So, next year we look forward to you guys coming back with your furry friends. We will have it all ready for you:)

Beautiful sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place for a cozy getaway. The hosts are very welcoming and hospitable. It was wonderful to be right on the bay. It was very relaxing. It is very close to Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. A great place to observe nature and fish. There are some great seafood restaurants nearby.

Owner's Response: Thanks Lynda for taking the time to not only write this thoughtful review but also a post in our guest book. We loved reading about all the different types of wildlife you saw while there. We are blessed to have an ideal location for bird watchers and have had quite a few stay with us over the years. We are so glad you got to see the highlight of our location and that is the beautiful sunsets! Some of our guest will get up early enough to walk over to the Atlantic Ocean to catch the sunrises which are amazing. But, watching the sunset over the Bay is such a peaceful way to end the day. To watch both sunrise and sunset especially over large bodies of water is truly a site to behold. Next time you want to do some bird watching we would love to have you come back. Thanks, Lesa

Easy access to everything important.

  • 5 of 5

We wanted beach and ocean and easy access, this accommodation in Sandbridge Beach was perfect. The location of the mobile home was within walking distance to the beach and ocean swimming and right on the edge of Back Bay part of the intercoastal system. We loved returning from the beach to the cool breezes off the bay. It is a perfect place for a kayak or canoe. There is a restaurant and breakfast cafe within walking distance and great restaurants a short drive away. The location of the home was quiet and private. We felt like we were in a house boat. The home was well equipped for a couple or family with two children. There are laundry facilities and a swimming pool in the park. We had an exceptional week...would have liked to stay longer. Maria

Owner's Response: Maria, I remember the snowy night in January when you booked with us you were excited about a summer vacation at the beach! We are so glad our rental was what you were looking for. It is good you booked early b/c July fills up the quickest. The ocean feels so good on hot summer days. And yes, the breezes from the Back Bay help over on our side:) We go back and forth from both which makes is so nice. We love when we get our Canadian guests as renters. Our very first guests were from there and came every year our first 10 years of renting! Thanks for mentioning the places to eat esp. the coffee shop right next door. We enjoy walking over there and eating our breakfast overlooking the Bay. Then we walk over to the ocean for our morning walk. Sandbridge beach is also known as Virginia's Outer banks but more secluded. We hope you guys come back and bring Ringo. It sure is nice to have your best friend to travel with you. Thanks for such a wonderful and descriptive review. We appreciate these so very much. Lesa
