We planned a last-minute trip to Virginia Beach, but didn't want to stay in the crazy-busy hotel area. We picked this place, not really knowing much about the area of Sandbridge Beach. The four of us (young adult children in tow) loved the Hawk's Nest! It was immaculately clean, and the views out the master bedroom and family room were awesome. We ate all our meals out on the patio and used the eat-in table only for jigsaw puzzles. The area is great for morning walks, and the beach is clean and not crowded at all. The condo pool is nice and large with plenty of deck chairs and tables all around. We found plenty to do, even on the one rainy day. We kayaked, went to the aquarium, swam in the ocean and pool, hit the boardwalk, shopped in Newport News, and even hit Busch Gardens one day. My husband and son golfed at nearby Hells Point golf course at a great price (check their website for deals).
The bedrooms in the Hawk's Nest are huge, with great beddings, and all beds were comfortable. Flat screen TVs in each room with channel guides posted on the nightstands for convenience. The kitchen is fully stocked with any kind of utensils, small appliances and large, dishes, everything you will need for your stay, including a wine fridge. Great laundry room with an ironing board and iron too. Large walk-in closets and the master bath is enormous. We brought our own beach chairs and umbrella, but the storage unit in the garage had some too. The area is almost all homes, with just two condos, so the vibe is very relaxed. There is a convenient grocery store right across the street for anything you need.
One of the most convenient things: the property is a code-entry property, so no keys were needed for the unit. The only glitch was that when we got there we couldn't get into the parking garage, we didn't get the parking access code from the realtor. Just took a phone call to get it though. After that we were all set. This unit had two parking spaces, but we only needed the one.
