This incredible property will be your "GREAT ESCAPE" from the ordinary. Our home is located one of the many navigable canals that make up the Back Bay Wildlife Preserve, 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. A short distance away within the Sandbridge community are public tennis courts, basketball courts and playground equipment.

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


The first floor contains a large recreation room with a pool table/ping pong table and lounge area with TV, perfect for unwinding from a long day at the beach. Open up the sliding glass doors and you are on a covered patio overlooking your private pool and boat dock. 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' flat screen televisions with cable TV 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 60' 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 bedroom has a queen bed and twin bunkbeds with access to 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 a queen bed with access to the deck. 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 gives you ocean and bay views while working on your tan. It is also the perfect spot to star gaze or catch an amazing sunrise and sunset.

This is an all inclusive property rental that includes everything you need to make your vacation worry-free. 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 the ordinary.

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

Great property in Sandbridge (Virginia Beach)

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property to accommodate family members visiting from out of town for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Everyone loved the property, the location, and the view from the rooftop deck. The property was very clean, the property manager was responsive, and the damage deposit was refunded in a timely manner. We would definitely rent this property again in the future.

Enough space for 14+ people!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place for our large family to welcome home a family member from a Naval deployment. There was plenty of sleeping and "hanging out" area to support our group.

Dream House Comes Through Again

  • 5 of 5

Our visit a year ago was so positive that our group rebooked again. House was clean, beds made, kitchen and bathrooms well stocked. We loved having two dish washers for a large group. Rooms were well separated, private and quiet, even with activity in the main upstairs area. Convenient walk to friendly beach. When electric power to Sandbridge Island went out, Jessica responded helpfully, bringing over generator and extension cords. The only maintenance recommendation we have is to resurface the rooftop deck with new boards. Many thanks for sharing this great getaway.

Enjoyed the stay, but have a couple comments

  • 3 of 5

The house was perfect for our group (number of rooms, etc), however, the bedding was in bad shape in all the rooms (pillows were horrible and many of the mattress covers were ripped). Also, there should be a TV and fan in ALL the bedrooms. Many of our kids were disappointed that there was not a basketball court nearby as your description of the house states. They had even bought new basketballs for the trip. I believe my family would stay here again if these few items were addressed.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. This property is under new management as of October 1 and many of your observations were our own. We will be addressing guest concerns and completing several upgrades to the property this fall. We are happy you and your guests enjoyed their stay. We would love to host you again in the future.

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!
