About The Area

We are located on the South end of Virginia Beach in Sandbridge Beach.  We are in the quiet low traffic family friendly North end of Sandbridge.  We are 500 feet from the Ocean, the path to the beach is right across from my driveway. There are several good restaurants in Sandbridge, one is walking distance.  There is a local market that has an amazing selection and an excellent deli also walking distance. There is a large shopping center about a ten-minute drive back up Sandbridge Road with Walmart, Target and multiple grocery stores and restaurants.  We are a short 20-minute drive from downtown Virginia Beach with the Boardwalk and numerous restaurants and attractions such as deep sea fishing and jet ski rentals, even an indoor sky-diving tower. Right in Sandbridge are surfboard and kayak rentals and lessons and eco-tours. The Back Bay National Refuge is at the South end of Sandbridge about 5 miles away. There is an excellent hiking trail there, you can actually walk all the way to NC at the North end of the outer banks.  There is a fishing pier on the ocean side in the South end at Little Island park which also has tennis courts.  There is a huge tennis complex including indoor courts near the VA aquarium before you get to the Boardwalk.  The aquarium has a marine "petting zoo" and an IMAX.  A little further afield in Norfolk is the Battleship Wisconsin.  Across Hapton Roads in Hampton is the Space museum with all sorts of interactive exhibits.  An hour drives back up I-64 brings you to the Historic Triangle with Jamestown, Colonial Williamsburg, and Yorktown for a good look at our early history.  Also here is world-famous Busch Gardens, sort of a Disneyland of the Middle Atlantic area.  A little online research will reveal many more attractions I have forgotten to mention. 

House Rules

No Smoking.  We used to allow outside but I have come to hate picking up cigarette butts, so we have made the property a smoke-free zone.  I understand the addiction, I am an ex-smoker, you know its not good for you, I can prove how dangerous and fatal it can be, so if you do smoke why not take the week to quit, one one week you can get over the worst cravings and I will be glad to help with the things that worked for me. Also no pets. Again I love animals, know how they can be part of the family, but since running Beach Bird I have discovered that there is a significant number of kids as well as adults who are extremely allergic to pet dander, just like peanut allergy, such that even the tiniest amount can send them to the Emergency Room, and again can be life-threatening. Unfortunately, there is no way to remove pet dander, it gets in the ac ducts, curtains, cushions, everywhere, and sometime down the road a kid could be in big trouble, so please, no pets.

We are set up with four large bedrooms for adults and two bunkrooms for kids, so that's where we came up with the sleeps 15 number, 8 adults, and 7 kids.  We have a double futon and queen sofa bed in the rec room with blackout privacy curtains so we can sleep 4 more.  We also supply extra queen airbeds and an inflatable toddler bed so we have had as many as 23 at a time.  The key point for us is that our guests be comfortable so please review the accommodations if you have a large group and make sure you are comfortable with them, We love and specialize in family reunions so we are fine with large groups as long as you are nice to my house! We don't charge for extra guests and know it can very economical for large groups, just want you to know what you are getting.

We do have to limit Beach Bird to family groups or family and friends. We have had some bad experiences with high school and college groups, and even though I know there are plenty of responsible groups out there, it only takes one to get drunk and tear up a house.  Usually the individuals I have spoken with sound and I'm sure are very responsible, but they cannot control their peers.  So please no high school or college celebrations.

Suitability

See above.  Set up for family groups, all baby and toddler supplies including strollers, wagons, portacrib and paknplay, high chair, toddler bed.

Great vacation!!

My family of 12 had a wonderful time at this vacation house. Bernard is an absolutely wonderful man. The communication before our arrival was amazing. Once we were there he took care of anything we needed. The house was well equipped and the pool was amazing!! Short walk to beach, town, activities. Thank you Bernard for everything. You are the best!!! Would highly recommend this home.

What a great week!

My family of 12 stayed at the beach bird in August of 2016. Bernard is such a nice man. We arrived a little early but he let us unload our things in the downstairs and then we left to get lunch at the local eatery. The house was a mere minutes walk from the beach! Most of the family lounged in the pool all day. He had everything you would need for the beach. We especially liked the cart to pull our belongings. The house was clean, large enough for all of us. Having tv's in every room was a huge plus. I would recommend this house again and again. And just working with Bernard was such an easy and pleasurable experience. Thank you so much!

Beach Bird has it all..and then some!!

From start to finish your experience at Beach Bird will be wonderful!! The owner, Bernard du Buy, goes above and beyond to ensure that every guest has a phenomenal experience. He provided us with directions to help us avoid potential driving delays so we could get our vacation started on time! Beach Bird is fully equipped with everything you could wish for and use at the house and the beach! Everything from beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, pool and ocean toys, books, and games -- Beach Bird has it all! I emailed Bernard asking if Beach Bird had umbrellas as I have 2 family members who are sun sensitive -- not only did he provide umbrellas, but he purchased a large SunBrella so that several family members could hang out at the ocean without worrying. Also, your linens are free of charge --sheets, bath and beach towels!!! If you want to stay at a very clean, well maintained, and equipped house that is only a 2 minute walk to the ocean and an owner who is friendly and committed to providing you and your family the most relaxing, hassle free vacation --- then stay at Beach Bird!! Thanks Bernard for making our third vacation at Beach Bird so phenomenal!

Work retreat

Bernard allowed me to rent the beach house off season for a relaxing work retreat with my coworkers. The house was very spacious and accommodating. Everything we needed was available, very clean and well maintained. Bernard stopped by to tend to the pool and he was very good natured, friendly and sought out if we were having any problems. The beds were very comfortable, atmosphere relaxing and not one complaint from anyone except that our time was too short. It was just a short walk to the beach or the little market that had outstanding fresh donuts but we enjoyed our time by the pool chilling under the gazebo area. I would definitely go back and recommend this house to anyone wanting to visit Sandbridge.

beach bird

Our family had a wonderful time. Pool was large and very refreshing even for non swimmers. I do apologize for 2 collage students that were in our family gathering that were inconsiderate and made a mess. That will never happen again. Plan to book again with only imminent family for location and accommodations that were great,and Bernard took wonderful care of the house and pool . Thank you again for the wonderful week that went by way to fast next time it may be 2 weeks.
