Gayle purchased this House in 1955
Why Gayle chose Northeast Virginia Beach
This is my family home, built by my parents in 1955 to entertain summer guests. It has provided many happy summer memories for many people for over 60 years! It is on the historic register for the city of Virginia Beach. We aim to preserve this historic property and keep providing a restorative retreat for many people. The rooftop deck is often said to have the best view in Virginia Beach.
What makes this House unique
Walking dogs on the beach, observing the weather and the wildlife are my favorite activities year round.

Great girls weekend!
We had a girls weekend at Sandswept that was originally scheduled for the first weekend in September. Unfortunately, Hurricane Dorian had a different plan. We ended up not being able to make it but Gayle was gracious enough to switch our trip to another weekend. We are so grateful! We had a blast and enjoyed Sandswept's unique design and beauty! We would not hesitate to book this house again! Thanks so much, Gayle!
Cool house! Great location!
Gayle was pleasant to work with from the very start. The house is huge and very cool... in possibly the best location for a beach get-away!
Depending on your intentions for your stay, it is important to know that: Gayle lives next door to the property; Sustainability and maintaining the LEED certification is very important to her; and the house has a lot of rules and instructions for how to use things.
I stayed here with 7 other women and our intent was very simple. We didn't have a lot of needs, so all worked out well for us. While the rules and instructions are very helpful, they can be a bit stressful if you are just looking to relax. :)
All-in-all -it's a GREAT location and house and I appreciated Gayle's communications, assistance, and flexibility!
Beautiful home in perfect location! Would definitely stay again!
Gayle was wonderful, and so friendly! The property is beautiful and in an amazing location!
Wonderful vacation spot for the whole family!
Gayle was wonderful to deal with. She had everything we needed to enjoy our stay carefree! She was very kind, informative and gracious. The house was beautiful and full of lovely mementos of the family that owns it! We could not have asked for more. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Nice place for extended family
Sandswept has multiple areas and levels so a large family can enjoy time together and apart. Comfy mattresses. A comfy couch would be a great addition.
This home is in the prestigious Northend of Virginia Beach, a quiet residential neighborhood with no hotels or commerce. Tucked away in the middle of the block, this home provides a quiet refuge where children can play safely on the playground and adults can relax and listen to the ocean waves and bird calls on two patios, a rooftop deck and in the garden. The widest beach at Virginia Beach is easily accessed by a public walkway. Being a quiet residential neighborhood with neighbors who value peace, this is not a place for loud parties. It can however be nice for small quiet weddings or family reunions that wind down by no later than 10:00 p.m. Parking is limited in the neighborhood so guests need to car pool or Uber.
