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.

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!
Our group came to Sandbridge the extremely rare week it rained 15 inches. Schools were closed, some roads were blocked, and many restaurants closed too. Sewers were backed up.... challenging. The ground floor of Great Escape was a bit soaked when we arrived. Tara was extremely helpful and accommodating to give our group the best possible experience, with fans, dehumidifier, even permission to move mattresses upstairs. We had a wonderful time, loving the beach, witnessing a beautiful wedding on the beach the same weekend, taking turns cooking gourmet meals, building a 3-D puzzle that was in the closet (it took days to complete), enjoying the kayaks off the dock and in the ocean. Despite the challenges, we DEFINITELY look forward to future visits to Great Escape and Sandbridge. Tara deserves highest marks for her responsiveness, great communication, and going the extra mile under adversity.
Our trip was outstanding!! We had 10 adults and a 1 year old infant. The weather was outstanding and and sunny so the AV was a must!! We all enjoyed the cool house from time to time and slept comfortably at night. we used the pool table a ton so that was a huge plus!! We spent time at the pool every day. The pool area was very well kept. The kitchen was very clean. We ate at the house every day. Even grilled out a couple of times! We had very good experiences with Tara who called to let us know that some repairs were going to be made during our stay. The plumbing was worked on Monday and the downstairs bedroom ceiling was repaired. Both repairmen were courteous and worked quickly. The beach was a great morning walk for the whole crew! Everyone very much so enjoyed their stay! We will definately return next year!!
Well, I want to begin by saying the property manager was very nice to us@first.
At first glance the house looks like a great place to spend a week in w/ family. There's a pretty big pool in the back w/ outdoor seating, & a small inlet w/ a mix of fresh&salt water perfect for fishing.
In our first tour of the house we noticed a wet smell in the basement area but nothing too bad. Upstairs was fine a little warm overall bc the air conditioning was off. Very clean&well furnished. Once we were all packed in the house we turned on the air which did not seem to cool the house down so we opted for opening the windows&balcony doors as there was a storm in the works the breeze was amazing. The windows however were not. They are old style turn windows⪯tty much every single one living room, kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms was broken&did not open &/or shut properly. For bed time we tried the AC again still w/ no luck so we opted for the windows/doors. Well that worked for the first few nights but eventually it warmed up outside was unbearably hot in the house. When we called the manager she came out✓ed it&told us told us that we need to keep it at 68≤ave all the doors/windows closed. That did not work we called her that night&she repeated that we must leave it at 68 all doors shut if it wasn't better in the morning she would contact a repair man. Well needless to say it was one of the WORST nights of sleep my family has ever had it was over 80 in the noone slept that night. The next day my husband (an electrician) checked the unit& saw the switch was turned off&the cover had come off probably the wind (from the storm) must have caused that. When going over complaints w/ Tara she eluded that we were the reason the switch was off-she actually blamed us for almost all of the problems in the home. 2nd major issue the master tub leaked into the room below&a plumber was sent to the home at 9PM& when we sent him away, she was mad. Other issues: Ants all over-ant traps all over kitchen (she said it was bc we left food everywhere we didn't+ its a kitchen!), pool wasn't clean when we got there-no one came until 2nd to last day, the grill stopped working, the front glass door if locked & would not unlock, When we called her up the night before we left the prop manager had a major attitude. She said that we are impossible to please& harassing her, and she hung up on me. Tara stayed in the home the week before&she was aware of pretty much all of this.
We had a wonderful stay at Great Escape! My party included 6 adults and a 1 year old. The grounds were well kept and the inground pool in the backyard was clean and amazing.. we were in that pool several times a day every day!
The beach was a very easy walk.. and remember i had a 1 year old in tow! The beach its self was beautiful, not rocky at all... though at night lots of crabs on the beach.. made for lots of fun trying to catch them!
Tara (the owner) was amazing to deal with.. very responsive.. while we had no issues during our stay.. any time i had to contact her prior to our vacation i always had a response within hours.
Home is huge, we had bedrooms we didn't even use! My family enjoyed also using the kayaks in the canal which were a blast.
Very much recomend this property..we will very likely be back in the future!
