Considering a Virginia Beach vacation rental or timeshare?
Sometimes a sterile hotel room just doesn't cut it. After all, a hotel room...
...doesn't feel like home (let's face it, most are pretty clinical, kinda like your doctor's waiting room)
...won't help you save money by being able to make some of your own meals
...is usually tiny, tiny, tiny, with no room for all those souvenirs you're going to buy at the Virginia Beach oceanfront, as well as at area amusement parks, outlet stores, and museums.
To be honest, since I live in the area, I haven't bought or used a Virginia Beach vacation rental or timeshare. But my sister-in-law, Cindy, regularly gets together a bunch of friends to rent cottages and homes at Sandbridge Beach and on North Carolina's Outer Banks.
In fact, if she's looking for a quiet weekend with friends, she always chooses a rental or timeshare at Sandbridge Beach over glitzier and more "hopping" sites near the Virginia Beach strip.
Honestly? During the height of the summer season, traffic can get relatively thick during rush hour near the strip. So Sandbridge can be a welcome relief. Or, you can stay near the Boardwalk (click here to see what to do on the Virginia Beach oceanfront) and take advantage of the VA Beach trolley (also know as The "Wave.")
But if you're a traveler who loves glitz, action, and being able to select from dozens of great restaurants just outside your balcony, go with a place near the Boardwalk.
Wherever you decide to stay, Cindy tells me she's had great experiences with Siebert Realty, an agency with a local reputation for super service.
