Holiday Rental House
Vacation in a tranquil setting on beautiful Back Bay in Blue Danum. View incredible sunsets from your back yard after a day of swimming and fishing in the fresh water of Back Bay or after a day of surf and sand on the beach. Play tennis at our clubhouse, swim in two pools, hike or bike through a nature trail in Back Bay, go kayaking, rent jet skis right next door or go fishing in the Atlantic Ocean on the Pier at Sandbridge Beach right across the street. If you wander long enough on the nature trails of Back Bay's 4,600 acres of Wildlife Preserve you could end up in North Carolina!

View incredible sunsets from your back yard after a day of swimming and fishing in the fresh water of Back Bay or after a day of surf and sand on the beach. Play tennis at our clubhouse, swim in two pools, hike or bike through a nature trail in Back Bay, go kayaking, rent jet skis right next door or go fishing in the Atlantic Ocean on the Pier at Sandbridge Beach right across the street. If you wander long enough on the nature trails of Back Bay's 4,600 acres of Wildlife Preserve you could end up in North Carolina! This cottage is located at Outdoor Resorts in Virginia Beach at Sandbridge Beach, Unit #132. This cottage has a full kitchen and bath, sleeps 2 adults and 3 children, has killer Wifi and is located right on the water with your own private dock and deck with a large awning across the street from one of the two pools and bath house. My wife and I have owned a different unit in the resort for 15 years. We have always loved this particular unit and recently purchased it before it went on the market. We feel this is one of the nicest unit with the best location of any unit in the entire resort. One of the many remarkable things about the location of this unit is the almost constant gentle breeze across the covered deck. You'll find it impossible not to take an afternoon nap in one of our cushioned outdoor chairs or quilted LL Bean hammock with the sounds of the bay and its cool breeze blowing across the shaded deck. The master bedroom has a Queen size bed and a second bedroom has bunk beds. The large great room has reclining chairs, a futon, dining area and full size kitchen. There is also a full size bathroom and outdoor shower. The walls are knotted pine and the floors are hardwood. It is a gorgeous unit. The deck practically sits on top of the water and has top of the line Adirondack Chairs, a table with plenty of seating and a gas grill. This cottage is located in one of the only places in the world where you can wake up on the banks of a fresh water National Wildlife Preserve and walk across the street to swim or surf in the ocean. It is impossible to find accommodations any closer to the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. To check out this incredible national treasure just Google 'Back Bay Virginia'. TripAdvisor lists Back Bay as one of the Top 10 Things To Do In Virginia Beach with a stunning 91% Thumbs Up! The ocean and beach is less than a 2 minute walk across the street from the front of the resort. It is truly a remarkable location. New for 2017! I have traveled a bit lately and will be making some changes to your arrival package based on my experiences All 7 day rentals will come with a complete linen package at no additional charge. This will include professionally cleaned bed linens, bath towels, washcloths, and kitchen towels. You will still need to bring your own beach towels. Also, I will also make sure the unit has a starter roll of paper towels, toilet paper and a trash bag. The first thing you should do upon arrival is dip your feet in the bay and NOT have to run to Walmart. The Summer Combo Package is incredibly popular and is reserved almost every week of the summer by one of our guests. $400 gets you the combination to the owner's shed. Some of the items include bicycles and helmets, beach chairs, basketball, tennis rackets and tennis balls, Kayak, stand up Paddle Board, life vests, bath towel and linens, fishing rod and tackle box (for liability purposes actual tackle must be purchased separately - there is a store just outside our gate) and more! The package is priced near the cost of renting just a few bikes for the week from local vendors. Please note we own and rent two units and this package serves each unit on a first come first served basis only. If you have an interest, please inquire about the Summer Combo Package as soon as possible. If you rented from me in a previous year, let me know when you book and you will qualify for last year's pricing.More
