    Relaxinig!
    Wonderful beach. Not too crowded. Clean! Close to our rental. This is our second summer in a row, and I hope that next summer will be the same destination. Make sure you pick up groceries and beverages before you hit the neach. Note: There were no lifeguards on duty where we were on the beach.

    Always Sandbridge
    11 years of Sandbridge Beach - such a hidden gem,not as crowded or touristy as VB. Clean sand,small crowds at beach. Water is warm mostly. Only homes and condos to rent,no hotels. Only a block or so,if you're not oceanfront. There's a store,find anything there,including souvenirs,fresh sandwiches, donuts,specials of the day. Closeby,there's an ice cream shop, a fresh seafood place to buy and do urself, 2 souvenir shops. If you want main street stores,10 min.away. wish we'd have found this beach years ago. I like quaint.

    Hidden Gem
    Had a wonderful time. Quiet beach, great clean condo one block away. Highly recommend Tropical Breeze condo through Siebert Realty. Enjoyed sitting out on the balcony listening to the ocean and birds. Only 12 units in Seaside at Sandbridge. Nice pool to enjoy. Not your typical party town. Gem that few people know about. Baja is a short distance away for drinks and dinner.

    Best family vacation area with beach houses!
    Sandbridge is the perfect family beach! We have stayed varying distances from the beach. Oceanfront is fabulous! Our favorite is on the canal. It's not a long walk to the beach. We take bicycles and kayaks. It's perfect for the kids to ride bicycles and for longer excursions as a family. We love to drop kayaks in the water on the canals and just paddle for hours. There are small restaurants north and south. Both have delicious food. We like to meal prep our side dishes to go with any fresh fish/seafood that we can get locally. There are a few places nearby. Walmart is a short distance too for grocery pick-up. Overall, this is where we are making family vacation memories with our kids, ages 12 & 13. (They have been to Florida and Caribbean; they will tell you this is their favorite.)

    Tropical Breeze paradise in Sandbridge, Virginia Beach
    Paradise, quiet, clean and relaxing. Stayed at Tropical Breeze, condo at Seaside at Sandbridge. Place was clean, one block from the beach and had a pool. Condo was clean, wonderful kitchen everything we needed. Comfy beds, huge TV and nice porch to drink coffee in the morning. Beautifully decorated and true to it's name. Lived Sandbridge, quiet family friendly away from the bars and noise. Best vacation ever. Rented through Seibert no complaints.

We arrived early one morning to a red flag. No worries, we'll just play in the sand. We saw plenty of surfers. As soon as someone brought out a boogie board, here comes the lifeguard to say it wasn't permitted...with 10+ surfers present. The lifeguard was not very professional about their demeanor with the customer. There were also signs posted saying "no speakers or loud music." The lifeguard on our tower had a radio blaring music the whole time of our visit. It seems the rules only apply to some, and especially not those who are enforcing them. I don't think we'll be back.

I needed to write this review on this page because I could not find one specifically for Siebert Reality vacation rentals. We choose to go with this company because it was recommended by a friend. The original house we choose and began to pay on removed the listing and then we needed to choose another location. However then the original house listed again for more money. After a very long drive, we arrived about 1.5 hours after the 4pm checkin to then find the cleaning crew still in the house indicating only the lower level needed cleaning. I went to the top level and found a wet beach towel outside and another wet towel on couch. The refrigerator on the lower level still had bait remaining from previous guests. The house was dusty and we cleaned the vents, doors, and dusted things that had clearly had not been dusted in months. The grill was dirty with foil still inside and around the pool area was various trash that we picked up the first part of the week. The pool was dirty and after a bad storm the first night had even more stuff in the bottom of the pool. By the 3rd day we called to ask if the pool can be cleaned. Staff put in a work order and I indicated the levels are checked on Tuesday or Wednesday. It’s Wednesday at 4:45pm. Will be shocked if they arrive. My favorite was catching strange kids on kayaks running from our dock to jump in our pool then to run back inti their kayaks. Yes I know there is nothing to be done about that but seriously we have traveled lots of places and not experienced anything like this. We rented beach chairs, umbrellas and kayaks from another place to also be disappointed by broken, dirty and rusty items. Will review them separately.

Our family spent $16,832 to rent 3100 Sandfiddler Rd. in Sandbridge, VA for one week this August through Sandbridge realty, now part of Vacasa. We experienced bedbugs, two broken toilets, a clogged bathroom sink, one bedroom and bath with no air-conditioning, inoperative sliding doors, most electrical outlets too loose to hold plugs, stained kitchen cabinet shelves with old shelf paper, parking for 6 cars max, not the 10 advertised, loose refrigerator shelves, greasy kitchen fan with no cover, two combo bath/showers with no shower curtain, old dishwashers, worn furniture including outdoor wooden chairs with splinters/missing paint. We spent two days getting some issues corrected including two visits by pest inspectors, who found bed bug castings and stains caused by bed bugs in the mattress in the affected bedroom. We requested a 20 percent refund by phone and email (twice) and heard nothing. Be warned and avoid this property and the rental company. This was our first family gathering in 3 years with travelers coming from England, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Virginia and Maryland, so it was a big disappointment to be in this sad, too-worn rental that ruined much of the vacation for too many of us.

Awesome beach, but I had forgotten how hard it can be on your calves if you are not in good shape. LOL....after a couple of days I was fine. I actually worked off all the great seafood I ate. The beach is beautifully maintained. We felt very safe there even during the Hurricane we encountered which was verrrry scary. Some advice...don't stay at the Dunes. They are NOT clean and they need updated furniture. So disappointing. No reimbursement except for the cleaning fee. So stressful for the first few
days. Then the hurricane hit and no power for over 18 hours. You know you work hard for your money, spend a small fortune to stay in "what is perceived as a nice place " and this what you get. We stayed here 3 years ago, and it was not like this. We will be back to Sandbridge because of the quiet family atmosphere.

Be very Careful when renting their Beach houses!! The pictures of the available house are very deceiving!! They are outdated and inaccurate!! My family got Burned on a rental called Cocktails and Dreams which is on the Back Bay at 3045 Sand Bend Drive. The house was filthy and in need of updates and major repairs!! The cleaning person informed me that she does not Do deep cleaning only surface cleaning!! I had to fight to get the place cleaned including the removing of smelly bed covers and rugs!! There is still Covid!! The yard was full if dog poop. The deck showed age with mold and rotten boards plus splintery peeling paint!! When it rained I thought we had to build another arc for the leakage coming into the house through windows and a door!! The manager is very highly disagreeable woman!!! After much complaining she sent a cleaning crew, had the the mold and filth removed from the decking by having it power washed, and had housekeeping wash the throw rugs and had them buy new bed coverings and rugs! But!! My family and I are on vacation!! The house should be in excellent shape for it’s rented Price!! I should not have had to fight to get the house in livable condition!! Spend your money else where unless you are Sure of your rental!!

My family stayed at Sandbridge Blu Sea Moose house on Sandfiddler Rd in Sandbridge Beach. We were disappointed in our stay for a few different reasons. However aside from knitpicking some annoying things I felt that the photos that showed what appeared to be an enclosed screen room on the oceanfront pool patio deck with nice comfortable furniture was in fact a series of openings with no screens or even a door. The dirty plastic chairs and totally open windows made it impossible to enjoy in the evening due to mosquitoes. We had to spend every night indoors watching TV instead of enjoying the sundown and evening air. Sandbridge Blu told us months earlier that it was an enclosed room and offered us nothing. Poor customer service. Never again for a very expensive vacation home

we stated going to Sandbridge in 2011 and have stayed at several homes. Some were nice some not. Regardless which realtor you use they all have a real problem with how the properties are cleaned. Out of our 15 rentals over the eleven years we have only had three maybe four that were cleaned correctly. So Realtors, get your poop in a group and make sure the homes are CLEANED, not swept with a broom or leaving dust and crap on the counters and floors. People are on vacation and don't want to spend three or four hours cleaning a house that was to be clean when they arrive.

SP3629-Down South

Everyone in our family group of 16 enjoyed this property, so much so that we arranged to come back next year too. Being on the bayside was a different experience for us, as we have rented on the beach side for more than 10 years. We really like the atmosphere of the bay side. What we also liked was the size and roominess of Down South (except the bathrooms, which are small). The kitchen was well stocked.

As for improvements, the ice machine in the kitchen refrigerator was slow to make ice., and there was a nail sticking up on the inside steps between the first and second floors. Thanks for the use of the hammer. However, the main safety improvement that should be done is to the front deck on the second floor. The deck has one step to a lower level and it is not obvious to someone new. Four people in our party almost fell by missing the step. The last board of the top level should be stained a different color to call your attention to the step. We put a piece of silver tape on that board, but it did not stick due to the rain.

We loved our one week beach rental at BEAUTY AND THE BEACH, 3241 Sandpiper Road, Sandbridge Beach, VA. This was literally a last minute rental with Siebert Realty b/c our original rental with Sandbridge Realty was full of mold and we REFUSED to stay there. Beauty and the Beach was lovely, apparently recently been renovated. The house has 3 levels, 5 bedrooms and 4 baths - lots of room for our family of 6, plus a very tame dog, to spread out (our adult children accompanied us). The house backs to the canal, so it's a couple of blocks from the beach, but that was ok for us. Plenty of driveway space for several cars, a deck on the front and back of the house, a well maintained backyard swimming pool, a small dock to the canal with an available kayak, and a firepit on the side of the house (we made s'mores one night which was fun). This was our first family vacation to Sandbridge and it was great - very quiet and not many people on the beach (we were there Aug 29-Sept 5, 2020). We've had family beach vacations for 30+ years with our kids, who all said this was their favorite beach rental yet. We would rent here again. And many thanks to Siebert Realty for helping us rent at the last minute :)

I have been coming to Sandbridge for over 16 years..I LOVE Sandbridge. My review is for the house we stayed in Casa Do Lago and for Vacasa who just bought Sandbridge realty. The house was horrible! It wasn’t cleaned, the prior occupants dirty linens were still on the beds, their towels on the floor, toothpaste in sink..just horrible. All the pool sticks were broken, pool liner was pulling away from the sides, poison ivy everywhere and the fence was broken, making it unsafe for our toddler. There was so much more. It was obvious the management company and owners did not keep up the maintenance. It was a shame because the house could be nice. It was not worth the money we spent for the week…Stay away from the house and Vacasa, if you can help it.
