Sandbridge Beach...'Great Escape'....Clean and Comfortable!

Bedrooms 6
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 16-18)

THIS VACATION GETAWAY IS PROUDLY MANAGED BY OWNER. OUR RATES INCLUDE CLEANING FEES AND LINENS (additional security deposit required). This incredible property named 'GREAT ESCAPE' will be your escape from ordinary. The 'Great Escape' is located on the canal, perfect for boating, kayaking, and fishing! It is located in the quiet community of Sandbridge in Virginia Beach VA and is only a short 1-1/2 blocks from the ocean. There are also nearby features that include tennis courts, basketball courts and playground equipment.

This beach house has six newly furnished bedrooms (4 queen and 4 full beds) that are decorated to put you in a beachy state of mind. We keep the GREAT ESCAPE beach house very clean and inviting for our guests. We also keep some baby items on hand for your convenience (baby stroller, booster seat, high chair, and pack & play). A dual band wireless internet connection is also now available to connect to the web.


The first floor contains a huge recreation room with a pool table and lounge area that has a 42' plasma television. Open up the sliding glass doors that lead to the private pool and let that ocean breeze fill the house. There are also three bedrooms (1 queen room with a private bath) and two bathrooms on the first floor. The queen bedrooms are all equipped with 32' plasma televisions for catching up on those favorite shows and events. This floor also contains a laundry area for your personal use.


The second floor has wide open spaces that add to that light and bright airy feel that a beach house should have. The living room has a 62' plasma television and a sectional big enough for everyone to get together on. The well stocked kitchen is complete with two dishwashers that make cleaning up a breeze after cooking that large family meal. The custom dining room table has plenty of chairs for the family and is a great place to play a board game or a game of cards. The first queen bedroom on this floor has a private bath with a whirlpool tub and a separate shower for freshening up for that evening meal. It also has deck access that overlooks the pool area. The second queen bedroom on this floor has a deck that faces the bay and is a great place for that happy hour cocktail as you enjoy the sunset. Bedroom three on this floor has two full beds that is perfect for the kids. The sunroom is a great place to read that novel or just open up the windows and take that afternoon nap.


The back deck overlooks the pool and the waterway and is the perfect spot to grill those burgers and dogs. The private pool is serviced at least twice a week during the summer so it is sparkling when you and your guests are ready to take a swim. Don't forget about the private crows nest deck on top of the house that give you ocean and bay views while working on your tan.

This is an all inclusive property rental that includes everything you need to make your vacation rental a success. All linens, towels, and some beach gear are included so that all you need to do is show up with those flip flops on and a smile on your face. Let this property be your 'GREAT ESCAPE' from ordinary.

'GREAT ESCAPE' is a great place for those large group vacation getaways. We're sure you'll enjoy being our guest!

Another great stay at Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We just had a fantastic stay at the Great Escape for a week in July. We came here last year for vacation and absolutely loved it, so we booked again. We had an amazing time and Tara is an absolute gem. If we had any issues, she let us know that we could call her at anytime. Fortunately, we had no issues at all, and just really enjoyed our stay. The home is great, and very spacious and clean! We loved looking at the stars on the top deck at night, and loved just getting to cookout, relax by the pool, which the kids absolutely loved as well, and hang out. We will definitely be back, and highly recommend this place to stay. You won't be disappointed!

Great Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a great vacation at the Great Escape. The convenience to the beach and then with the private pool, this was exactly what our family needed with 3 little ones 2 and under. The beach is close and easy to walk with all your beach gear and 3 children. We walked to the beach in the mornings and the evening also with our dog...which was also a nice walk for him. The yard around the pool is completely fenced in with some grass area, which was also nice for the dog as well as the children.

We loved the ability to fish off the dock...caught several fish...and to kayak! This added another level of entertainment for everyone!!

The only negatives I would have is controlling the temperature in the house is somewhat of a challenge. You need to keep the air on lower than recommended in order to keep all levels cool and the lower level from smelling a bit damp. We loved being able to just keep the doors and window open...but there are no screens on the doors, so all the flies and misquotes invade the indoors. Updates are needed with the TV and DVD player. The remote doesn't work and there is none for the DVD player making watching children's videos for the week pretty difficult.

The wifi worked great...so that was a good thing and the kitchen is very well stocked. Having the towels and sheets provided is also a nice addition. Other places we have stayed, we had to bring all that as well. The large kitchen table was awesome, we gathered there every day for not just meals but playing games in the evenings.

Overall we had a great family vacation and would choose Great Escape again!!

Spacious house, needs deep cleaning and updating

  • 3 of 5

The Good. Plenty of room, pool great, very short walk to beach, loved the two dishwashers!

Tara was very responsive to our needs. Tried to resolve issues we were having quickly.

The Bad. The house was not clean! I feel Tara is paying for a cleaning crew that is not delivering. Walls, doors, etc. need painted. Living room sofa needs replaced-it is on its last legs(cushions are ripping away from body of sofa). The whole house could use some refurbishing. Air conditioning units could not keep up with the outside temperature to keep the whole house cool( I realize that there is nothing you can do about the weather!) When you come to the beach, you expect it to be decorated as a beach house. Very few decorations throughout the house.

The ugly! Dirty pair of underwear left in one bathroom! How did the cleaning crew miss that one!

Suggestion. Stop at Dollar Tree and invest in a whole set of measuring cups and spoons!

It would be nice to have glasses-not plastic cups! Glass is so much more sanitary than plastic.

Owner's Response: During the guest stay all issues were addressed same day as we were at the home 5 of the 7 days. It was very unfortunate the underwear was left in the vanity. The cleaning crew was addressed about these issues and will be more diligent in the future. The guest stayed on the hottest week of the summer and when the HVAC company was called out they found them to be in great working order. Both units reading below 75 when it was 100 degrees outside. I will take the suggestion into account. We are a family home and have had many broken glasses that is why we have plastic cups. All other kitchen sets are glass. We update every year. We have a new kitchen, new bathrooms and last year all new floor in downstairs bedrooms and pool table area.

Perfect and convenient home

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this home over Christmas break with our dogs. The house was cozy and clean and had everything we needed for the weekend. The location was great and just a short walk to the beach. I would 100% stay in this house again!
