Top 5 Reasons to Choose 
a Vacation Rental Home… over a Hotel Room
Whether it's a vacation home or condo, these lodging options offer comfort, convenience, and unmatched value.  Here are the Top 5 reasons to rent a Vacation Home:

1.  Vacation Rental Homes are more comfortable than hotel rooms

Thanks to the Internet, renting a vacation home or condo has grown tremendously. Now you can see photos of beautiful vacation homes that offer:  multiple bedrooms, fully equipped gourmet kitchens, spacious theater rooms, private pools and hot tubs… and compare them to a cramped and expensive single hotel room.  Once people learn they can rent an entire fully furnished house with all the bells and whistles, the choice becomes clear compared to renting a hotel room.

Vacation rentals provide spacious living and dining rooms, as well as private pool areas, so everyone can gather together, plan their day, and share quality time together under the same roof.  They also offer spacious decking and screened porches perfect for relaxing with a cup of coffee, reading a book, or just kicking back and enjoying the ocean views and breezes. 

2.  Vacation Rental Homes are cheaper than hotel rooms
Considering vacation homes generally have 3 or more bedrooms and can comfortably sleep the entire family (some larger homes can sleep up to 30 people), a vacation rental is definitely a great value. Our website at  will even break down the "cost per person" so you can see the rental rates upfront... per person or per family.  You’ll be pleasantly surprised by how much you can save by renting a vacation home when sharing the costs with other family members.  All of our vacation homes have fully equipped kitchens for cooking your own meals, which can also save money when you consider the costs of dining out for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

3.  Vacation Rental Homes have more privacy than hotel rooms
Most hotel rooms and common area facilities (like public pools, beaches and lobbies) are jammed with other vacationers. Rooms tend to be small and often you can hear a noisy neighbor through the walls.  All of our vacation rental homes are located on quiet residential streets away from the busy resort area and offer a slower paced atmosphere.  And many, if not most, of our homes offer private swimming pools.  Not only that, everyone has their own private bedroom, and there are also spacious 2nd living areas such as dens, recreation rooms, decking, screened or enclosed porches, etc. where you can sneak  away for your own private time. 

4.  Vacation Rental Homes are Kid Friendly
A vacation home is ideal for families with little ones offering more room to spread out with their favorite toys, and many rentals have fenced yards where kids can run and play. Other options are available to keep kids smiling and entertained, especially on rainy days.  Fun times can be had by all in separate game rooms offering pool tables, ping pong tables, foosball, or just tables set up for playing cards and board games. Many rentals also have multiple living areas with flat screen tvs, and some even offer huge theater rooms complete with reclining movie seats, so buy some popcorn and bring the kids' favorite DVD movie!  And let's not forget the indoor and outdoor swimming pools and basketball courts – all great kid friendly amenities!

5. Many Vacation Rental Homes are Pet Friendly

Approximately 75 of our vacation rental homes accept pets (with an additional fee).  We believe our four-legged family members deserve a vacation too, so bring them along!  

Some rentals also have fenced yards so your pets can run and play safely.  Clearly, this is a huge advantage over hotel rooms since most will not consider a pet under any circumstance.

It’s clear there's a huge advantage to renting a vacation home over a hotel room, and these are just a few reasons why.  So what are you waiting for? Check out our rentals for yourself at or call our friendly rental agents at 877-422-2200.  Our website gives you a full overview of all our rentals including street maps, exterior and interior pictures of each room, floor plans, and some even have videos.  Best of all, we have a detailed search page set up on our website where you can easily narrow your search down by selecting specific amenities such as indoor or outdoor pools, hot tubs, pet friendly, basketball hoops, or whatever you specifically want or need for your family.  Take a look for yourself and see why so many vacationers have made the switch.  You’ll be glad you did too!  Want to hear from some of our previous guests?  Check out some of our Rave Reviews at:

Girlfriends Getaway!

Girls Just Want To Have Fun!
Calling all damsels in d-stress! Spring is the perfect time to take a break from the men (and kids) and get your relaxation on!   So, grab your BFFs and start planning some time all to yourself.

Girlfriend Getaways are so special… and necessary.  They’re basically “camp for women”!   It’s a time to hangout with your best friends and just be yourself. You can shop, eat, explore, pamper, or do nothing at all (guilt-free).  It can be as simple as gathering at the beach with no definite plans each night but to sip some wine, chat, play cards, order pizza, and basically have a fun, giggly girls’ PJ party… to a full weekend of massages, manicures/pedicures, hair salons, shopping, dining, wine tastings, movies or theater, and much more!  Or you can plan an active weekend of golf, bike riding, kayaking, surfing, jogging on the beach, nature walks or tram rides through Back Bay Wildlife Refuge. 

Groups of traveling women can vary in age, marital status, economic level, and reason for travel, but most have in common a multi-faceted life from which they need to “escape”.  We see groups of women that include female family members, bridal parties, high school/college/sorority reunions, or female co-workers... all wanting to bond and reconnect with their life-long "sistas". 

Many women share common interests and are looking to deepen their passions. They might be book club members, scrapbookers, quilters, photographers, or even gym buddies looking to step up their daily workout with bootcamp on the beach. As a result, today's getaways can be tailor-made to fit such varied travel tastes.

Why Do You Need A Girlfriend Getaway?
To regain your sanity
Food and laughter!
You can talk about anything
You don't have to talk... just enjoy the peace and quiet
Shopping... lots of shopping!
Sleeping in, then taking naps on the beach
Chick flick movie night (with no one rolling their eyes)
Pedicures, manicures, and facials
Poolside cocktails and board games
Did we mention regaining your sanity?  :)

So grab your girlfriends and head to Sandbridge Beach for a weekend of complete relaxation. You deserve it!

Paul James “Gardener Guy”

Paul James, host of Gardening by the Yard, admits there was a time when he hated gardening. The dislike stemmed from digging Bermuda grass out of his father’s vegetable garden in the middle of August. Paul has come a long way since that memorable hot day. Now known as the “Gardener Guy,” Paul serves as Gardening by the Yard’s creator, writer and senior producer and shoots almost the entire show in his own backyard.

IFLY of Virginia Beach

The Flying Experience

iFLY is an indoor skydiving experience that creates true free fall conditions, just like skydiving, without having to jump out of an airplane. iFLY’s vertical wind tunnel generates 1400 horse power from 4 powerful fans, creating a wall-to-wall cushion of air on which you can safely float. There’s no parachute, no jumping, and nothing attaching you to planet Earth. It’s just you and the air, and it’s the most incredible adrenaline rush.

Anyone Can Fly
No experience is necessary. Just about anyone can fly, including those with physical disabilities. Children as young as 3 to adults as young as 103 have flown with us. If you have any concerns, please contact us. We’ll do everything we can to get you flying. No one should miss out on the iFLY experience!

The Experience at iFLY

  • Book a flight.
  • Arrive an hour before your flight time to check-in, complete your waiver, attend your training session, and change into your flight gear (all included)
  • Your personal, highly-trained and accredited instructor guides you through the entire experience
  • Enter the flight chamber
  • Fly like a super hero!
  • Your instructor will make sure you’re comfortable and having a great time!

The whole experience lasts about 1 hour, and each flight is the equivalent of one and a half skydives.  Have fun!  Make your fight reservation today. We look forward to flying with you!  Go to:

Winter Whale Watching Tours!

Virginia Beach Whale Watching Tours are available now through March 31, 2015 by Rudee Tours.

The Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay entrance off of Virginia Beach are one of earth's unique ecosystems. The Humpback and Fin Whales don't really make their seasonal migration along the eastern seaboard until now (winter)

Marine life sightings this time of year are incredible with whale sightings as the number one goal on the whale watching tours. You may also see brown pelicans, northern gannets, double-crested cormorants and other sea birds, all of which make a dramatic show while feeding on schools of fish. Hope you can get out there and see these magnificent creatures up close. It will take your breath away! 

If you're coming in from out of town to explore all the winter fun and are in need of lodging, contact the vacation experts at Siebert Realty!  We can assist with all your lodging needs... offering fully furnished beach home and condo rentals at beautiful Sandbridge Beach, which is just 20 minutes south of Rudee Inlet and the resort and boardwalk area.  Many rentals have toasty fireplaces and bubbly warm Hot Tubs... perfect for when you return from a trip out on the open seas.  Hope to see you soon!
