Relax in this completely renovated 1950's flat-top beach cottage on gorgeous Sandbridge Beach. This waterfront home, situated on a canal off the beautiful Back Bay, is an easy five-minute, two-block walk to the ocean and the perfect setting for your family beach vacation. With three king beds, a bunk room, two full baths, a well-equipped kitchen, a saltwater pool, and all linens and beach gear included, it's got everything you need to spend quality time away with your family.

The space
Our family is so excited to welcome yours to this charming place. This home has been lovingly refinished and appointed with everything you need to feel l like you're really getting away. It comfortably sleeps six adults and four children and comes equipped with all bed linens, bath and beach towels, games and toys, a beach cart and sand toys, folding chairs for six, a beach umbrella, yard games, a gas grill, life jackets and puddle jumpers, a fire pit and many other amenities for your family's enjoyment. All you have to do is pack your clothes and pick up some groceries, and you'll have all you need for a relaxing time away.

Please note:
Pool is open as of 4/10/21!

Our maximum occupancy is 10, with a maximum of 6 adults, due to the bed and bathroom situation.

Though our cottage has been completely remodeled, its 1950's layout has been preserved. Though it has two full baths, neither of them are en suite.

The indoor fireplace is not operational, but you’re welcome to use the wood-burning fire pit out back!

Sandbridge is on a barrier island, and the wifi can be finicky. We have worked remotely and our children have successfully attended school virtually from the cottage, but occasionally the signal goes in and out. We are upgrading to the highest service possible as of April 2021, but please keep this in mind when booking if wifi speed and reliability is very important to you.

Where you’ll be

Virginia Beach, Virginia, United States

We know you'll enjoy Sandbridge Beach as much as we do. It's located about 25 minutes from the excitement of the boardwalk of Virginia Beach, but offers a smaller, more relaxed beach-town feel. Here, you'll find wide, undisturbed beaches similar to those in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. You can play or fish at Little Island Park, hike and go exploring at Back Bay Wildlife Refuge or False Cape State Park, take surfing lessons, or go paddle boarding or kayaking in our own backyard in the Back Bay. Here on Sandbridge you'll also find Baja Coffee Company, offering delicious coffee drinks and breakfast burritos alongside Baja, open for dinner and home to the most gorgeous sunset view available anywhere. You can treat yourself to steamed seafood at Simply Steamed or hand-dipped ice cream at Sugar Shack, pizza or seafood at Sandbridge Island Restaurant, and-- hands-down-- the best donuts of your life at Sandbridge Market (as long as you get there early enough to snag some!).

If you're wanting to venture just a short drive farther, we can suggest fun family activities like strawberry and blueberry picking in nearby Pungo, dolphin and whale-watching cruises or a day at the Aquarium, zip-lining fun at the Adventure Park, family dining (and mini-golf) with great allergy-friendly food and live music at Sage Kitchen, hand-crafted cocktails at Civil Libation, local beer at New Realm Brewery, delicious coffee, farm-to-table dining and an amazing array of vendors at the Old Beach Farmer's Market in the Vibe District, and many other restaurants and attractions locals and visitors alike love at the Oceanfront. Obviously, we could go on and on about how much there is to see, do, eat and drink here, and we're happy to answer your questions about this place we love.
