Description from owner

Beach Bird is a 2500 sq.ft. nautical theme beach home in Sandbridge Beach. We are set up for weekly rental from Sat. to Sat. There is an enclosed backyard with the solar-heated pool and a comfortable gazebo and patio set to watch the pool in comfort. We did a major remodel in 2010 of kitchen with new cabinets and granite counter tops and marble baths. The front deck is on the second floor across the front of the house and has its own patio set. The rear deck is by the pool and covered with a gazebo so you can watch the pool in comfort from the second patio set. We have two of most everything; heat-pumps, refrigerators, stoves, microwaves, gas grills to ensure a trouble-free vacation. We have a full set of baby and toddler supplies including porta-cribs, pak-n-play, strollers, high-chairs, etc. We supply most sundries such as paper towels, TP, laundry and dish soap, spices, etc. to make your vacation more convenient.

We can supply a full set of linens including beach towels for the nominal amount of $10/person. We have a basketball goal and sand volleyball court and are also set up for pool volleyball. Inside in the rec room we have a ping-pong table where all ages can enjoy playing together. There is a queen sofa bed and double futon in the rec room. We are located in the quiet, low traffic North end of Sandbridge. The beach is a short walk away, 500 feet, and the path is right across from my driveway.

About the area

Sandbridge Beach is a good base for touring the historic triangle: Jamestown, Colonial Williamsburg, and Yorktown. We have had sand replenishment every two years which keeps us in the top ten list. Back Bay National Refuge is at the southern end of Sandbridge and offers miles of hiking trails all the way to North Carolina. In fact you can walk the beach to NC. There is ample shopping and restaurants in the Redmill malls ten miles back on Sandbridge Rd. We are a short 20 minute drive from Rudee Inlet and downtown Virginia Beach with jet ski rentals, fishing boats, parasailing, dolphin and whale watching. Just before is the Virginia Aquarium including a touch tank and IMAX, a water park, and go-karting. Downtown Norfolk has Waterside with restaurants and the Battleship Wisconsin, about 30-35 min. Another 30 min. brings you to the Air and Space Museum which has several kid-friendly experiences. Thirty minutes west on I-64 brings you to World-renowned Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg.

Getting around

There is very complete small local market with excellent deli within walking distance as well as a very good relatively inexpensive restaurant.

Getting here

I usually send driving directions or suggestions to each guest shortly before arrival. In general from points North it is best to take the Eastern Shore Rte. 13/113 route to avoid traffic and delays, Google Maps agrees. From anywhere try to avoid the I-95/495 route around Wash. D.C., always congested' average delay 3 hours compared to other routes. We are about 40 minutes by car from NORFOLK airport. We have ample parking for over 8 cars.

Interaction with guest

We actualIy have a very good refund policy not reflected by the limited choices offered by Tripadvisor. We provide a full refund if we are able to re-book the week.We book a year to many months in advance so last minute cancellations would destroy our business. Of course we cannot refund any fees charged by the booking agent. that is up to them. I spend a lot of time and effort to make Beach Bird the perfect vacation getaway home. I am on call 24/7 for any problems. I welcome suggestions from guests, so I know what to fix or upgrade. I don't get to live at Beach Bird so I can't tell what may be missing or needed. I just added blackout curtains to all rooms in response to guest suggestions.

“Great Weekend at Beachbird!”

Reviewed 20 Apr 2016

Thank you for a truly memorable weekend at Beach Bird. My family, friends and myself enjoyed the spacious home. Plenty of space to relax, be by yourself if you wanted to be and have all the comforts of home. The people who stayed downstairs said they never heard any noise from upstairs or from the other rooms. The kitchen was stocked with every type of pan, bowl, utensils that we needed for our cooking. We had one day to enjoy the warm sunshine because it was chilly and windy; but of course you had no control over that. We took many pleasure walks in the area, visited a few of the shops but mostly chilled at your vacation home. I would recommend this beach house to my friends or those interested. Thank you for opening it up early for me to use and share with my family. It was nice having everyone in one large space versus my cramped condo. I will be back when it is warmer and hopefully the pool is open. My family and friends came from CT and DE; they enjoyed the house and would love to come back also!
