Our Sandbrige Beach Vacation ~ Perfect For Our Entire Family

We have been taking our kids on vacation to the beach every other year.  This year, we wanted to do Virginia Beach, but when we contacted a realtor, they told us we wouldn't be able to get a pool with our rental if we stayed right in Virginia Beach.   They suggested Sandbridge, Virginia.   

Sandbridge is located just south of Virginia Beach and is only about a 20 minute drive to get there.  We are so happy that we ended up in Sandbridge and not Virginia Beach like we thought we wanted.
The beaches in Sandbridge are quiet and family oriented.  They have 5 miles of beautiful golden sand and are known to have the cleanest beaches around.

To get to the beach from our rental house, we only had to walk a short block right up our street and we were there.  We couldn't of chosen a better spot.  Plus we chose our rental because it had a huge pool, plus it was right on the bay with it's own bay access. 

We wanted a 4 bedroom place and ended up with a bonus room.  Good thing because my grown Granddaughters came and brought their friends.

I have to tell you, my Hubs and I took the very top floor.  We had a HUGE room with a jacuzzi in it.  A King size bed a wet bar, our own outdoor deck that looked down over the pool.  Perfect... everyone wanted a piece of our space.  LOL... but it was all ours.  I did let my one Granddaughter study in it since she had homework to do for summer college classes. 
Oh yes!  I almost forgot they had internet access which was very important!!

We were there on July 4th and decided to watch fireworks from our top deck.  Do you know that they had fireworks every direction you looked.  There were so many gong on that we didn't know where to look next.  It was perfect for the young Grandkids.

I tried to get some pictures of each family, but I guess I didn't do such a great job.   Maybe next time I will do better.
If you are ever headed to Sandbridge, Virginia and are looking for rentals, We rented the house from Siebert Realty and had excellent service.  They answered every question we could throw at them.  Even some of the stupid questions.   I like it when you have a rental that goes smoothly.  Not all of ours have in the past.

    1. I certainly would love to vacation in that area--and a house with a pool in walking distance to the beach-Priceless!

  2. Oh how beautiful. I have been trying to get my husband to take me to the beach. If we were closer I would have him take me here :)

  3. Wow, this looks like such a fun vacation. With two little boys, we love renting houses versus staying in hotels since we have my room, can cook our own meals, and don't have to worry about any loud kiddos disturbing people who aren't awake at the crack of dawn.

  4. With all those people you definitely needed to rent a house! And it sounds like you got the perfect one--pool, beach and a place where you and hubby could hide from everything!!

  5. What a great vacation spot. You had the beach and a pool. The best of both worlds. Your floor sounded amazing and I don't blame you for securing that spot for yourself. You deserve it and probably needed some peace and quiet.

  6. My husband often fly back to our home province every time we go on "vacation". It's not even considered vacation anymore because we're just visiting family and going back to our old ways when we were kids. One day we'll venture out on our own little excursion and not book that flight back home. I can't wait to just vacation with just the two of us. Looks like you and your family had such a wonderful time.

  7. That sounds just perfect. Our beach rental had the lousiest wifi. It was so slow!

  10. Your rental home looks really nice! I think your family photos turned out great! We thought about doing a beach vacay this summer, but opted for Tennessee instead. We'll be heading out to see the Smokey Mountains next week, and I can't wait!

  11. What a lovely vacation spot. I take my family to the beach at least once a year and each time, we go to a different place. Sandbridge sounds like a wonderful place to visit. The house you got is really big and I love the pool.

  12. You were just having so much fun on your vacation with everyone that you forgot all about the photos. Sandbridge sounds like the perfect Virginia Beach alternative.

  13. This sounds like it was the perfect trip! I love this idea of going through a realtor. I think I will take your advice on trying one out. The fireworks sound like they were magical and I love the time that you were able to spend with family in such a comfy abode.

  16. Looks like a fun vacation and a fun house to stay at. I am not sure if I have ever visited this place before or not, I use to live on the eastern shore and we went out that way a lot. The water looks so good right now I want to jump in!

  18. We'v worked with Sandbridge on behalf of clients in the past. Always a great experience. They offer a lot of properties in their portfolios for various size homes and condos. It sounds like you guys had a super vacation and that is what matters most.

  19. Looks like a wonderful vacation. I'm so jealous you got to go to the beach. We used to live in Philly and could go basically anytime we wanted. Now we live in Southern Indiana and it's a 10+ hour drive.

  24. Looks like a great vacation! I like Sandbridge. We rented a house on the ocean there around 10 years ago and my husband's kids and their families came. I liked it but some of the younger people were disappointed that it was quiet. I think they wanted Ocean City.

  25. That does look wonderful! I miss the beach. We live so far from one.

  26. a pool. that would be good. I love both beach and pool. Though sometimes the sea water is a bit too polluted to really play in. So a pool is a good idea

  27. You mentioned that you rent from Siebert Realty. My sister's last name is Siebert. I actually made street signs for Mica's room. One is Siebert Circle. Then there's Apel Ave.

    I bet you can't wait to go back there. I'd love to go to the beach right now!
