Help finding the perfect section of VB for our style

My family of 4 , including 2 little boys who love beach adventure and discovery, are interested in a VB vacation this year after going to Florida the last couple years. We love Florida's Beaches but we also love going new places. Our beach style is uncrowded, yet still kept up, shelling, interesting places to adventure on foot around the area or renting bikes..... kid friendly activities... the kind of place we are looking to stay is within walking distance of the ocean, would love the view of it from our door or window as well... not really into hotels or big expensive houses since there is only the 4 of us going. Would like to stay around $120 per night or Less. We wouldnt be going until June because during Spring break things are so much more expensive and way more crowded usually so we would rather just wait to vacation after high season is over. Thats the way it is in Florida anyway. Thank you for any one who can offer input or advice.

Would you like Sandbridge then? Virginia's outer banks and in the south of Virginia Beach. Little commercialism right around the homes. Drive to shopping centers and north to the Boardwalk activities. There are smaller accommodations like condos.

You might also look at a few places north of the boardwalk in the residential area there.

Sandbridge has about everything you are looking for. Moneysworth Rental rents bikes in the Sandbridge area, but there aren't storefront bike rentals like on the boardwalk area. Other than that the beach and neighborhood sounds like what you are looking for. Price might be the issue. We usually go the first week of June, and plan about 1200 - 1400 for the house for the week. There are some condos that are probably a bit more affordable, but not sure you will get into that 120/night even in the shoulder seasons in VB... For Sandbridge rentals check out Siebert Realty, Sandbridge Realty, and Beach Pros Realty. These handle condos also in some of the complexes, and Sanctuary Realty handles the condos at Sanctuary.
