The house was gorgeous and more than accommodated our 23 people. The kitchen was well stocked. We had some repair issues but they were promptly and completely addressed by the management office. The variety of indoor activities for mid-winter kept all of our group (ages 4 mos. to 92 years) occupied.

Our stay at your house was simply wonderful.It was our first time going to the beach and we wanted a house on the ocean with everything. We got that and so much more.We also have a daughter in a wheelchair the house was perfect she had easy access to everything. The elevator was a perfect fit for her chair.We will be back after trying a few different houses at Sandbridge Realty.

We rented this place for a week in Nov for friends and family to stay / visit for our daughter's wedding.
We spent the first 5 hours of our visit cleaning. Dirty dishes, silverware, the oven was a mess, toilet seats worn down with cracked and chipped finish. We must have cleaned up 50 dead bugs and flys laying all around the house. Picked up several half empty cans of beer and had to empty and clean a couple of full ashtrays. The lower floor was covered in sand. Also picked up about a dozen slivers of broken glass outside around the hot tub. Paid extra to have all the beds made and found several where the lines were just tossed on the beds. Lots of screens missing or torn and one window with a large crack through it. Bulb in the projector in the theater room was burned out ... it was replaced but this is another example of no one caring enough to make sure the house was ready.
During our stay, the ice machine failed and leaked all over the floor and down into the exercise room. We turned off the line and put a trash can under the leak to catch the water and called maintenance. A guy arrived quickly, said the pump had cracked, said it would be a week to get the part. Not really a big deal but no one ever came back to clean up the mess!!
I put my complaint in writing, turned it in to Sandbridge Realty and waited for a response. A month later after no response I called and spoke with a "manager". She refunded the $75 we paid to have the beds made and sent a $300 certificate. Keep in mind that this place that costs around $12,000 for a week in the summer.
We have rented similar (size, age & price) previously through Seibert Realty with no problems. We will visit here again but will not rent a house managed by Sandbridge Realty.
