Because of new Homeaway policy of erroneously labeling taxes they collect as lodging taxes (they are state sales taxes @ 6% , they are NOT Lodging Tax as labeled by by Homeaway. The i% city tax is a SALES tax. The City of Virginia Beach collects a separate LODGING Tax of 9.5%. For early reservations this year I am covering these as a discount of 9.5% , in order not to inconvenience my guests with this additional payment request, while I work with the City to correct this error. At least in Sandbridge we get some of this amount back in the form of sand replenishment which keeps us in the top ten lists.

Rate Notes

Taxes: The taxes collected by VRBO/Homeaway are for the state of Virginia only, and are sales taxes. The City of Virginia Beach has always had a separate lodging tax as do most beach destinations, that is separate and is 9.5% for Sandbridge, with part of Sandbridge's rate devoted to beach replenishment. (This helps keep us in the top ten list). VRBO/Homeaway used to list this tax for the past 15 or more years, they just omitted it this year when they began collecting the State Sales Tax. and thus their quotes are misleading.

Beach Bird Rentals

About J.Bernard du Buy
We took over management of Beach Bird in 2011 from an agency to better serve our guests. Thanks to Homeaway this was not as daunting as expected; it turns out everything is done online now anyway. We get to meet and know our guests and this has been very rewarding; there are some really great folks out there and providing them with a first class vacation has been a wonderful experience. When you have guests relaxing and having a good time it makes all the hard work worthwhile.
J.Bernard du Buy purchased this House in 2001
Why J.Bernard du Buy chose Sandbridge
For me Beach Bird was love at first sight; my real estate agent wanted to turn around and leave immediately. All the windows and doors were frosted and furnishings were pretty basic, but I liked the layout and location in the low-traffic North End. You would never guess now with the large pool and gazebo but the backyard was a bramble path. But there were great views, and the owner had already installed solar hot water, so we already had a start on my goal of going solar.We now have a solar pool heater and this year hope to start on our PV solar project. Every off season we were busy remodeling starting with the doors and windows. Some day maybe I'll get to stay there a few days without working and see what it's like!
What makes this House unique
Over the years as Sandbridge has become busier I have come to appreciate the North End more and more. You can walk or bike ride without worrying about busy traffic, and crossing the street to the beach path is never an issue, the neighbors have been great and we have tried to be selective in having guests who like to relax and enjoy peace and quiet on their vacation. We have made the backyard pool area into an oasis where you can relax by the pool and keep and eye on the kids in comfortable reclining patio chairs out of the hot sun under the gazebo cooled by the ocean breeze. I'm sure that sounds like hype but we do actually get an afternoon rising convection sea breeze most afternoons when I'm taking a break from the remodeling; it's my favorite spot.
