Don't let the bad reviews discourage you. I guess everyone has a bad experience now and then. However, this place is wonderful. We stayed in B-107 Life Is Good. The balconies overlooking the ocean were amazing! We watched the dolphins play in the morning as the sun came up. We had never rented a condo before, but will most definately...

Never been to Sandbridge Beach before. But were looking forward to staying at a beach that was supposed to be the opposite of the big resort towns - Virginia Beach, Myrtle Beach, etc. What did we get instead? Something worse. We have a unit that overlooks the pool area. No where in the contracts did it state that there would...

We are truly sorry that your experience here at Sanctuary was not the best. Yes there is music out by the pools and it is provided by Sanctuary at False cape for everyone to enjoy. When you informed us about the music someone from the association (not the Realty Company) did politely explain about the music and how you could...

We were 3 families who travelled together from Canada for a week long stay! We began the booking process in November 2011 and found it easy and convenient. There were a few hickups as we got closer to the date of our trip but the staff responded quickly and were able to alleviate all of our concerns. Check in was...

Condo was really nice but pricey (although I have no idea of rental prices in Virginia Beach area). Pools were very nice, bbq was always available when we needed one and the fitness room was nice to have too. Great beach in front of the property and some nice waves. Everyone loved the stay.

We also stayed this past week and awoke to learn that our tent frame had been thrown into the ocean by a bunch of kids in the middle of the night. This account is from an eye-witness, Sanctuary's own security guard. Not only was the security guard aware of what happened (but chose to do nothing about it), it was...

Our family has vacationed here for the past 5 summers and witnessed the decline in this property and value. Unfortunate since we had in past considered purchasing here. Perhaps they need to consider a criminal background check for renters, and counsel their security guard, who witnessed vandalism on the beach this week, and chose to address it or even notify...

We are truly sorry our guest had an unfortunate occurrence while staying at the Sanctuary, especially one that would eradicate the memories of four prior pleasant experiences. We strive to address any and all problems immediately when brought to our attention. We were quite surprised to read this review as we received no notification written or verbal to any Sanctuary...

There's nothing better than breezing through the check-in process after a long day in traffic. Sanctuary Realty really nailed it this year: there's no waiting in line and you don't even have to leave the car. Check-out is also a breeze. The specific amenities of each unit vary, but our penthouse was extremely well stocked, nicely furnished, with spectacular views....

This is the part of Virginia Beach that I like best. Great for families -- secluded, quiet and refershingly peaceful. OBX-like atmosphere without being too far south. Far enough to be "on vacation" yet near enough to for those times you want "city amenities" that nearby groceries, restaurants and malls offer. I've been to the Sanctuary a number of times,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Paradise Found... Rising majestically from the pristine sands of the Sandbridge Beach section of Virginia Beach. This is Virginia's Outer Banks, which has unspoiled coastlines and awe-inspiring sunsets. The Sanctuary Realty's luxury oceanfront resort offers vacation condos with designer decor and state-of-the-art amenities. Visit the Sanctuary at False Cape, where you can take a morning run along the coast, bask in the sun's glorious rays by one of three sparkling pools, or stroll on your own oceanfront boardwalk. So much to do... dine on delicious seafood, shop at world class stores, play a round of championship golf, enjoy a night on the town, deep sea or surf fish, or tour Back Bay. Whatever you desire, the Sanctuary Realty condos have it all! We hope to see you soon. ... more   less
