The fall season in Sandbridge is simply wonderful! Beautiful, sunny days and cooler evenings make for a much more comfortable stay as you enjoy the outdoors. Sandbridge Beach and the surrounding neighborhoods are full of activities and things to do for fall fun. Whether you're visiting for a fall vacation or extending your time doing your virtual working/learning, we've compiled a list of great attractions and ideas to try. Pumpkin patches, local farmer's markets, corn mazes are just a few of the things that await when you visit Sandbridge Beach this fall!

Sandbridge Remote Learning and Working
Posted by Sandbridge Realty | Wednesday, July 29, 2020

The fall season will certainly be a different change of pace this year. As some families adapt to a new routine of distance learning and working, that opens up the opportunity to enjoy Sandbridge Beach outside of the typical summer months. While social distancing yourself from others, turn to nature for comfort, hope and inspiration. Explore the outdoors, engage your children, and learn new things. Sandbridge is full of open spaces and healthy waterways just waiting for you to navigate. Consider a Sandbridge getaway with your loved ones and stay in our wide selection of rental homes and condos!

Still thinking about your options? Review our list below of great reasons to visit Sandbridge this fall:

1. Keep your vacation days and work remotely from the beach! Many employers are continuing to allow employees to work remotely. Bring your family to the beach and enjoy productive days filled with sunshine and salt!

2. Homes & Condos offer several gathering areas ideal for setting up a makeshift office! With all homes and condos offering high-speed internet/WIFI, setting up your remote office takes no time at all. So open that laptop and get working, and try not to look at your beautiful ocean or bay view!

3. Our family friendly community is perfect for a beach break so bring your kids along! Many of our homes offer private backyards with pools and play areas, so let them enjoy the pool while you are working. Take a break and walk to the expanded beach, perfect for social distancing! View homes with private pools, open until October 10th, 2020!

4. Extend your stay…one week might not be enough of a break! Have more time? Then stay for a week or three! With great rates and weather, you can really relax and unwind and still be productive!

5. Incorporate learning experiences for your entire family to enjoy! You can learn from anywhere, so why not spend a day exploring the Wildlife Refuge? Take a leisurely stroll down the beach and collect shells. Grab a handful of sand and look at it under a microscope! Challenge your child to learn about the ocean and ways to preserve it and the marine life it supports. You will also create memories to last a lifetime!

No doubt we are all in this together...trying to navigate between the news and our daily lives. As we are certainly in uncertain times, what we do know is that we are here to help you in any way we can. We are open for business and want to assure you of the diligent approach we are taking to ensure our guests, home owners and staff members stay safe and healthy. We are monitoring this unprecedented situation closely and we are listening carefully to each and every one of our guests and owners.

Upcoming Guests

If you are arriving between now and June 10, you can expect to stay in your chosen property. Our housekeeping and maintenance staff has increased their professional standards to also include additional recommendations set forth by the CDC and WHO. Here are some of the precautionary measures we are taking to ensure your family's safety:

1. Our cleaning teams work diligently to ensure our rigid sanitation and disinfection protocols and best practices are withheld to the highest standard. This includes heightened attention to disinfecting all flat surfaces as well as light switches, thermostats, remote controls, appliance door handles, faucets, stair railings, and door knobs.

2. Our linens and towels are laundered in a commercial laundry facility that provides the necessary water temperature, soap, and sanitation needed for proper laundering.

3. Many of our homes are keyless entry, allowing you to completely distance yourself and your family from others.

4. Many of our staff are working remotely from home having complete access to our management systems. Our office has been locked to outside vendors, and our maintenance crews, guest services, and housekeeping personnel are servicing our guests and owners seamlessly.

We will continue to take calls to discuss options related to your vacation for guests arriving between now and June 10th. Our staff is available during normal business hours via phone at 800-933-4800 or via email at to work with you to make the best decision for your family's safety and well-being. In the coming weeks we anticipate a higher than normal call volume and we are prioritizing those guests who are arriving between now and June 10th.

Should you decide to keep your existing reservation in place, please note that many local businesses and services have been affected by COVID-19 as well. Operating hours, retail stores, events and attractions may have changed or are subject to change without notice. Local grocery stores and paper products may be in limited supply, so be prepared to bring all of your own necessities.

For those of you who purchased trip insurance and wish to cancel your reservation, you will need to contact them directly.

For reservations after June 10th, we ask for patience as this is a dynamic situation and subject to change at any given time. We will continue to update you on this page as we know more about the impact COVID-19 may have on our guests, property owners and community. For the most up-to-date information and latest protocols on COVID-19, please visit The Center for Disease Control. We will keep those affected in our hearts and hope that this situation is behind us all as quickly as possible.
