Guestbook comments from the owner

I can't say enough about this property and it's owners!!

My family and I were moving from Ohio to Virginia. Because of "Sandy" hitting on the same day as our closing, we had nowhere to stay.

I was looking into different options (hotel/vacation home), and came across this magnificient home.

The owners were sooo kind, making many allowances for my family and our pets!! I know God put us in touch with them in our time of need!!

The small details in this house are unbelievable, there is a ton of room, lots of things to keep little ones busy, every pot/kitchen utensil you can think of, and wonderful soft beds and pillows.

I has a working fireplace in the living room, sauna, hot tub, steam shower, swimming pool, grill, and a tub big enough to swim in- my grankids love it!!

Jeremiah met us when we got there, and was sooo friendly.

God bless these people and this house, and thank you so much for all your wonderful help!!

Our stay was absolutely delightful. The property is well maintained and clean. All the amenities and layout are as described. Wow! This home has a built-in sauna!And a gourmet kitchen! Nicely decorated. We were not far from good shopping and restaurants. The owner is friendly and kind. An excellent choice for a quiet getaway with all the luxuries of home. We will be back.

We had a wonderful stay at Seahorse at Sandbridge! Our whole family loved the roomy house and had pool. We were so close to the beach and all the other things we wanted to do. Any problem that occurred was taken care of immediately! We even had family pictures taken on the property while we were there. A wonderful vacation! We would definitely recommend this vacation rental!

It was a home not just a house

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time. My one son said it was the best house so far. We met the owners and they were awesome. We have rented many homes through VRBO some are houses and only three have been homes. What makes it a home are the owners. They were there responsive and genuine. We will return given the opportunity.

A nice clean and uncrowded beach was only ten or so minutes away and State Park beach only 15 minutes away. Of you want peace and quiet in a beautiful setting and easy access to Virginia Beach attractions, this is your spot

Beautiful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This place was very nice to stay in, David was very friendly and helped out with anything we needed and the house had EVERYTHING we could wish for and then some. We had it at full capacity and had plenty of room to spread out. Loved it and would recommend it to anyone. We all loved watching the horses. And if we ever had opportunity to stay in a big group setting again we would stay there if available.
