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.

Sandbridge Welcomes Your Fur Babies

Photo by C. Graf
Your Pet Deserves A Vacation Too!
Pets are welcome to vacation in Virginia Beach all year long.

Why leave your precious fur baby behind when heading to your family getaway? Your pet deserves a beach vacation too! Siebert Realty has over 65 fully furnished Sandbridge vacation rentals that warmly welcomes your pets.  

A record 68% of American households now own a pet. Most, by far, are dogs and cats, who are now traveling more often with their human companions.  That's why an increasing number of vacation rentals don't just accept pets, they downright cater to them - usually for a fee that goes toward deep-cleaning. 

The entire family is welcome to vacation in Virginia Beach and that includes Fido and Whiskers too! Whether it's romping on our 35-miles of sandy beaches, taking a doggy-paddle in the ocean or playing a little game of fetch in our off-leash dog parks, you and your four-legged companion can experience “a dog’s life” at the beach!

Pets allowed on the Beach:
During the Winter, Spring and Fall months (before Memorial Day and after Labor Day weekend) dogs are invited to enjoy the public beaches and boardwalk area anytime (on leash). However, during the Summer months, (Friday before Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend) pets are limited to frolic on the north end of Virginia Beach above 42nd Street and the south end of Virginia Beach in the Sandbridge area before 10am and after 6pm (on leash). During the Summer season, dogs are also allowed on the boardwalk from 6am to 10am only.


Luckily, the question of where to find pet-friendly beaches is much easier. Coastal communities such as Sandbridge Beach realize it's a "win-win" as long as the human half of the equation does their homework.  That means making sure their license and vaccinations are up to date, observing leash laws and, it should go without saying but we'll say it anyway, scooping the poop. :)  If you and your 4-legged buddies are traveling to a beach away from home, it's also a good idea to attach your vacation address and contact info to their collar.

Ready to plan a fun getaway with your fur babies?  Check out the over 65 Sandbridge vacation rentals that warmly welcome pets to the beach: http://bit.ly/2hfAFT0

Baby It's Cold Outside!

 If you take an annual trip to the beach in the summer, you may be missing the best that seaside towns have to offer. Here are 5 reasons to embrace the coast in the winter:

It’s Quiet
Most people look forward to a beach vacation as a time to recharge their battery, but then get swept up in crowds and activities and do anything but relax. Visit Sandbridge in the winter, and you'll have plenty of time to kick back and relax. It's life at a much slower pace and there's plenty of time to read, nap and recharge your soul. 

Deserted Beaches
Sure, beaches are fun when it’s warm and sunny, but they’re also crowded. The weather may be colder in the winter, but it's usually warm enough to read, stroll along the shore, and just hang out on the deck or beach. The vistas are so beautiful with soaring pelicans, swaying sea oats, and gorgeous sunrises to marvel at while sipping your morning coffee.  Another bonus of a deserted beach? You won’t have to share your shells with anyone else.  :)

It’s Romantic. Way More Romantic.
If you’re looking for a romantic getaway, definitely plan it for winter. This holiday season, you can go on a breathtaking whale watching trip.... or maybe take a horse drawn carriage ride along the boardwalk to see the Holiday Lights while snuggled under a blanket with some hot chocolate. So romantic! Or simply take a long stroll along the shore...  hand in hand. Also, many of our beach rentals provide roaring fireplaces, swirling hot tubs, and indoor pools all to set the mood for the perfect romantic getaway. 

Walk-in Seating
Many seaside towns either have reservation-impossible world-class restaurants or popular seafood dives with lines out the door. In the winter, locals walk right in to the best restaurants and local favorites. Same goes for museums and local attractions.    

Deals Abound
During the Off Season, our vacation beach home and condo rentals are already discounted and many rentals offer an even deeper discount! We also offer a discounts and special promotions right now **Siebert Deals** (on participating rentals and weeks)!  All in all, during the winter months, you’ll either be able to save lots of $$... or you can stay twice as long.

So as you can see, there are dozens of reasons to plan a beach getaway in the winter.  It's a magical time to de-stress, recharge, or get romantic... all while saving a few dollars at the same time! It's definitely a Win-Win! Looking for a great Holiday Surprise for that someone special? Why not give a beach getaway? It's the perfect gift! Gift Certificates are available on our website at:  Gift Certificates  Hope to see you soon!
