Dog-Friendly, Ocean View Beach Retreat w/Private Outdoor Pool, Decks & A/C

Stunning ocean views across the wide sandy beach right in front of 'Pearl By The Sea' gives you the oceanfront feeling and easy beach access you desire at a semi-oceanfront price! Pearl By The Sea has long been a favorite vacation home because of its seaside cottage charm and all the many fun amenities. The sounds of the Atlantic Ocean reverberate from the multilevel wraparound decks. The well-equipped kitchen with ample cookware and utensils, breakfast bar, and eat-in kitchen table open up to the roomy dining area and spacious great room with vaulted two-story ceilings and a 60-inch Smart HDTV. This very design keeps the family together while cooking and watching TV or just taking in the awesome ocean air.

Pearl By The Sea accommodates large family groups with comfort and convenience all around. The extra refrigerator downstairs, plus a convection oven to assist in bigger meal preparation whether you're looking to whip up some surf and turf or a big family breakfast. A poolside barbecue is just what the doctor ordered! Rest and relax poolside with the comforts of a poolside shower, hot/cold water, and a private dressing area. Although, some in the family may decide to duck out of the sun and enjoy the rec room with half bath, wet bar, refrigerator, foosball, and board games!

When it's time to say goodnight to yet another glorious beach day of sun and fun, you will all be comfortably accommodated by the eight spacious bedrooms, many with private access to the decking, breezy ceiling fans, and the large loft area with three futons. The first level has two large bedrooms (a queen primary bedroom with a private bath and a 40-inch Smart HDTV, located across the breezeway near the pool) and a second primary bedroom with a private bath, 50-inch Smart HDTV, one queen bed with a second twin with trundle). The second level has two queen bedrooms, one with a 32' wall-mounted HDTV. There is a king bedroom with a new 32' wall-mounted HDTV. The kids will love the bunkie room with a twin bunk set and two twin beds. The third level has one king bedroom with a new 32' flat panel TV wall mounted with a private bath and across the other side of the loft is another bunkie room with two more sets of twin bunk beds. One of the bunks has a twin trundle bed as well. Then in the main area of the loft there are two queen futons and one double futon with a 40' wall-mounted Smart HDTV.

The space was nice for a group of 15, especially the kitchen and living room space. We still had plenty of beds when a maintenance issue happened and made an entire room unusable (AC valve clogged, now fixed). Also very close to the beach and quiet street. Our issues other than the AC leak were kind of "par for the course" on a youth group trip, but they were all disappointing given what we paid to rent the place.

The yard is a nice size, but so disappointing not to have the pool when it was 68 degrees outside--it's not "weather dependent," the season ends between Labor Day and Oct 1. We were given a code that didn't work on the locks AT ALL when we arrived, which was after 11pm. Thankfully one of our kids found a door open on the third floor porch (not comforting but helpful). We still couldn't get into the extra bed/bath/kitchen suite because the code didn't work. On top of this issue, they supply only the bare minimum. Beds had a sheet and a thin quilt & some rooms were freezing while others were very warm -- adjusting the thermostat never really fixed it. No hand soap in the bathrooms, not enough towels in each bathroom for the bedrooms there... we had to buy paper towels, extra toilet paper... and it's not expected but it's typical to have some basic spices on hand in a rental.

Pearl By The Sea was a wonderful house to spend our Sandbride vacation in! Vacasa (formerly Beach Pros Realty) responded very quickly to a couple of our minor needs and the employees at the local office were consistently pleasant & professional. There were 18 people in our group and everyone agreed we would definitely stay there again. Our only complaint is that the underwater pool light never worked and it did not get repaired as requested. Anyone considering this house for rental will be pleased.

We rented this property 2 years ago and were so pleased we rented it again for this year. We were extremely disappointed at the condition of the house. We came in at 4 pm, the cleaning crew left at 4:30 and a different team had to return 2 hours later. I think (and hope) they only changed the bed sheets. The bathrooms were dirty, there was dog hair balls in corners, the broom constantly picked up more pet hair, the refrigerator is way undersized for a house this large, the pool vinyl liner is coming out, the carpet is filthy and should be replaced, overall the house has not been kept up. The baby gates had to be reinforced. The doorknob to the upstairs deck came off. There were no crib sheets provided- and when management was asked for the item, they never got back to us or gave us one. The small fridge provided has broken shelves and a very, very slow ice maker. We purchased batteries for the dead clock and many of the remotes. The televisions didn`t have a great signal and most bedroom televisions did not work at all. The WIFI for the house got very slow and weak with so many people on it- so more WIFI should be provided.

The location and layout of the house are perfect for a large family. We had 16 and there was lots of room. Even though we had to cross the road, it was a short walk to the beach. The decking needs some attention. We found two spindles that could allow a small child to fall through. Both are on the front with one on top deck the second on the lower deck. It would be nice to have a larger bed in the 1st floor right side. The weather was great! The traffic was terrible.

The house was beautiful, clean and in a great location

The bed frame was broken on the bed in the basement apt on Saturday. It had screws in it where it had previously tried to be fixed instead of replacing it. Emergency maintenance did not respond until Monday so we slept in an uneven bed. Maintenance put a thin piece of wood under the frame which fell several times throughout the week. They never came back to replace the bed frame.

There was an air conditioner water leak in the kids bedroom. Maintenance came to fix it but it started leaking again a few hours after they left. The kids could not sleep until we got them a fan to block out the water dripping sounds.

As we were trying to pack the car to leave on Saturday, pest control people came and started dumping chemicals all around the front yard and driveway. I asked them if the could come back later and the lady said no but after about 10 minutes they left.

Also, when we arrived there was no toilet paper or complimentary soaps which is unusual as their are usually a few.

This was our :3rd year at the the Pearl....love, love, love this house...the family and our dog and grand dog loved it too! Even though the weather was not the best we manage to make new and wonderful memories. Love the pool, the corn hole matches, ring toss, the beach, and the donuts everyday from the Sandbridge Market! Thank you Beach Pros snd the Owners of the Pearl!!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Overall a good house and a good location. Beach access is directly across the street and located on the beach road that has less traffic. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Great house, great location. Plenty of gathering space, plenty of private space.Kitchen was well equipped. Very clean and updated. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We had a great stay and the place was nice. It could have had a few and better cooking utensils and the rug needed vacuuming. Loved the place otherwise. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We booked in January and then started worrying about March with the whole Covid-19. We walked up the steps to the second floor to prepare our staging area to clean from. Then we sorta just stood there with all our cleaning supplies in hand. The house smelled cleaned. We looked at the polished table and counter tops. No dust. No fingerprints. So we started fanning out looking at the rest of the house. Bathrooms immaculate. Bedrooms crisp and clean. After a 5 minute sweep of the house we realized our worst fears for the past several months were for naught. The house was clean! Amazingly clean. There wasn’t even any dust under the furniture! Yes I looked when we put sheets on the couches. I don’t know if I can adequately describe the sense of relief we had at how clean this house was. Thank you! So the rest is easily described. The house is amazing! Only two of us made it this year. So this is a run down of the second floor. Showers are awesome, big enough for a linebacker to use without touching the curtain liner. Bathrooms were good sized. Hot water pressure was not an issue with the two of us showering at once. Kitchen was great. Lots of items to use. Stove and oven worked good. Living room is large and the circular couch was neat. Greatest thing was the decks. The street side faces the ocean between two houses. It’s better then being on the beach! We waved at the people going by on their bikes and they waved back! People saying hi and laughing at our dogs. All while we sat and watched the ocean. This alone may make us rent here again next year. The pool is huge and beautiful and the surrounding area is very nice. Yard itself was very large with grass and well maintained. Dogs loved it! It’s a short walk across the road to the beach. We rented last year from VRBO and Beach Pros handled that house. We were impressed with them and rented directly from them this year and they didn’t disappoint us! Thank you Beach Pros!

This property was delivered as described. The property offered easy access to the beach, a great backyard with a pool, plenty of space on 3 levels and great views from the wrap around decks. While the house has some wear and tear, it was still a perfect location for our group. The one area of concern were the pots and pans for cooking. The stove and oven worked great but pots and pans are in rough shape. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Ralph . Jul 2020
The house, although older, is well maintained and very comfortable. The pool is large and the area around the pool is beautifully landscaped as is the front yard. Beach Pro Realtors are very professional, easy to work with and the digital access to the property is simply much better than sitting in traffic waiting to get a key. The only improvement needed is in the cookware and dishes in the kitchen. There were too many chipped plates, etc and the large cook pots were very cheap and just not very good. These deficiencies are not deal breakers but should be remedied. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Overall, a great vacation with extended family! We’ve stayed at Pearl by the Sea twice now, but we did have 2 issues this time. One was the smoke alarm in the in-law suite kept going off through the night. Maintenance came and replaced the batteries, but it happened again on our last night. My sister in law had to come up and sleep on the couch that night. The other issue was the neighbor behind the house. We were out by the pool listening to music and playing corn hole. They started blinking lights at 10pm and then called the police at 10:30. The police came after midnight to advise of the noise complaint. By that time, most everyone had gone inside and so he said for future reference just keep the noise down after 11pm. People have to realize that this is a vacation rental area & that many people like to be outside by the pool enjoying themselves. It was 10pm on vacation!

We had a group of 13 family members staying at this house. This was the 2nd year for some of them but my first year. Loved this home. Worked well for us. This location is perfect. It`s not right on the beach but just across the street from the beach front homes. There is a convenient beach access walkway right in front of the house. You can see the sunrise from the house but also can quickly get to the ocean to see it come up every morning. The pool is a nice size for the whole family. We already have this home booked for next year. On a side note: We did have issues with the pool and air conditioning but they responded quickly, professionally and took care of the situation without much disruption. The owners also had a gift basket dropped off to the house. We would definitely recommend this vacation home. Looking forward to next year.

My wife and I, three adult children and their spouses and eight grandchildren had a great time despite 30 mph wind and rain the first 3 days. The last three days were great. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Don . Jun 2020
This is our 2nd year----the whole family LOVES this house including our dog and grand-dog! The weather was very good - the pool, the beach, the ring toss, and the corn hole game were super fun. Lots of fun!!! Thank you to the owners for their thoughtful gift (loved the gift). Thanks to Beach Pros for their care and service! We plan to return next year!!!

The property was beautiful, spacious,and we had lots of fun. Upon arrival we did do additional cleaning to the balcony door tracks due to the amount of dirt and insects. Also the deck on the second floor had so many cob webs that we had to wipe down the windows and siding. The kitchen, and seating area were perfect for our large group. We were able to enjoy meals together comfortably. We had brought our own pots and pans based on a previous review, but found that the unit had adequate cookware. The stove didn`t function that well, and the water pressure in the kitchen was poor. Yes, the Reality Co. did offer to come fix the water, but we declined. The pool was enjoyed by the kids, and the beach was in close proximity. Overall, we had a wonderful family vacation. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Carla . Aug 2019
We were a group of 18 people - 12 kids ages 8 months to 11 years old. The house had plenty of towels, dishes, etc, to make our stay comfortable.
I downgraded the housekeeping - there were ants in the kitchen, a pair of underpants under the bed on the top floor, hair balls by the main TV and that area could use a good cleaning behind the TV.
The management office was wonderful, very friendly and maintenance took care of things right away. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Amy . Aug 2019
Great house for a large family - very clean, fully stocked kitchen, comfy beds, big open family room/kitchen space. I want to point out that the stove was tricky to regulate. With this size house, a double oven would be nice. Other than that, Pearl by the Sea is awesome! It`s in a prime location so close to the beach access! Wouldn`t want to stay anywhere else!

We had a wedding reception at the house. We loved it. It was a perfect location and will be looking forward renting again! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Sandra . Aug 2019
Overall,our family beach vacation was fabulous. I have 5 children, all married(or significant other), and 9 grandchildren, ranging in age(2 mo.-17 yrs.)All had a great time. Our only complaint was that the carpets were very dirty & had pet hair. I spent a few hours vacuuming all 3 levels & stairs. I would lie an additional recycling can. Ours was overflowing by the end of our stay. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Don . Jul 2019
Fantastic! WE loved the Pearl. We did not have great beach weather but the house and the pool were wonderful. The grandkids loved the pool, we loved the backyard, the location,the large house and our dog and grand dog loved it also! We plan to go back next year!!! The owners sent a gift to us - very classy. Beach Pros are the best!!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
John . Jul 2019
This home is in a very family friendly area of Sandbridge and located directly across the street from the beach access path. Very cozy & comfortable and fully complimented with appliances and utensils. it had meal seating to accommodate 20 at tables or bar. very nice well maintained backyard and pool area. Beautiful ocean views from the decks - house faces East. We liked it so well I already reserved it for next season.

We enjoyed our stay one block off the beach! Nice welcome gift-thank you Beach Pros��, lovely bonus kitchenette 5star unit, stocked kitchen and more. We had a wonderful time, location was great and I slept like a baby! The set up of the house was so cool! The owner could do a few things to freshen up the place -like paint the banister and hall area going upstairs and update the bedding in one or two rooms, my cooking family wanted a larger fridge to accommodate 28 guests, and the chairs in the picture were nicer than the actual chairs at the dining table. This is almost a 5star property. But honestly, you can`t beat it for the value! Loved Pearl by the Sea! Couldn`t give stars but it would be: 4.5,4,5,4,5 This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We got married on the beach right across from the house. We rented this house due to its size so that our families and friends could celebrate our wedding with us over a long weekend. The sizing of the home was adequate for a large group.

I believe we were the first people to stay in the home after hurricane Florence pass through because when we arrived the pool steps were off of the pool and laying against the side of the house, bikes, the pool toys tub that should be outside was inside the mother-in-law suite by the backyard, which didn’t appear clean. We had issues getting into the house. The keyless entry lock that was on the front door was not working properly due to battery dysfunction so therefore when I called and spoke with the realty office they told me they would send a maintenance guy out to fix it. When the maintenance guy got to the house he had to wait for somebody else to bring him keys to unlock the keyless entry access. We arrived to the house around 1:30 pm; check in time was 3. The realty office was very kind and let us check in early. Had we waited until 3 we probably would not have been able to get inside the home for an hour to an hour and a half; as we waited that long to get after arriving. Getting into the house was the only major issue we had during our stay.

Some of the cookie sheets were very dark and didn’t cook well. The floors felt a little dusty. It may have been several days or a week without anyone staying there. I would say the condition of the inside of the home is anywhere from below average to average just because of the carpeting conditions, marks all over the walls, and some cracks in the ceilings. The place could use a little cosmetic updating. Although, I was able to look at it as it’s just a house I’m sleeping and eating in; I didn’t come to a beach house to spend my vaca time in a house. We had a wonderful time! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Kim . Sep 2018
We love Sandbridge! This was our second year at Pearl by the Sea. It isn’t fancy but it suits our large family. Some of the beds could be more comfortable, but really can’t complain. The living space is huge. The pool is great! The proximity to the beach is just right! Beach Pros was very easy to deal with. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Dan . Sep 2018
Our vacation was great at Pearl by the Sea. We had 14 guests stay in the house and there was plenty of room for everyone, and space for everyone to have their own personal space. The view and the balconies were fantastic and spacious for everyone. Everyone enjoyed the pool which was very nice and the backyard had plenty of space for the dogs and games.

Amy . Jun 2018
This was my family’s summer vacation, with 20 people attending. The house is in a great spot with ocean views from all upper decks. The layout was nice giving each part of the family their own spaces. We all agreed that we would definitely rent this house again. A few things that we noticed during our stay that would improve the house overall would be to add these items to the kitchen: more sharp knives, more & newer skillets, a crock pot (we brought our own), perhaps a keurig coffee maker. For outside, add a table & chairs to the pool area and a few of the chairs were cracked so replace those. The house inside overall is in good condition, but a fresh coat of paint could help overall appearance. On one website, it was advertised as a 9 bedroom but it’s actually 8 bedrooms with an open loft area with sleeping ability on futon beds. Again, we loved our stay here, these are suggested to improve the house overall. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

My family and friends were visiting and we had an absolute blast. There was plenty of room for everyone. We arrived much later than we originally planned to check in and our access code for the door would not work, BUT the agent returned our call right away and was able to give us a new code within moments of us arriving. The only downside to our vacation were ants in the kitchen/dining area. Exterminators came to spray, but it didn’t resolve the issue during our stay. Wish we had booked a little later in the season so that we could really enjoy the pool and beach a little more. I would definitely recommend the stay!
