We had a great stay at #233. The cottage even had a box of toys which was a huge hit with our young kids. The cottage was beautiful and clean, although I found the tap water tasted a little gross (bring bottled water??).

The cottage we had was excellent, my only complaint is that it didn't include paper products, coffee filters, toilet paper, scrubbers for cleaning the dishes, a small supply of dishwasher and dish detergent was included but not enough for a week and no laundry detergent. ***(TIP: ask if the cottage you are booked for supply these things as that is...

We stayed here on April 4th, 2015 with our family. We found the cottages to be very clean and comfortable. What we found very frustrating was the 4:00 PM check-in time. The clerk, who was rather officious, would not allow any early check-ins which resulted in many upset people. It's very difficult for people who have travelled a distance with... More

My wife and I (both 60+) spent March 2015 at OVR and can't think of a thing we didn't just love. Beautiful units, well appointed with every amenity you can think of, grounds were well landscaped and cared for, the pool and hot tub were really nice. The staff bent over backwards for us and we expect to return next... More

Just back from our three-day experience with grandkids and their parents. While the unit we stayed in was well-equipped, the name "Oceanside Village Resort" is very misleading. The 'village' is actually cheek-by-jowl, yardless, townhouse size units with roads everywhere. The nearest beach is a 15 to 20 minute walk away down a road we know to be busy during the... More

Close to beach area, we'll kept indoor pool/exercise facility. Convenient location for many area activities. Very nice, helpful staff. We felt the cabin located we stayed in, located earlier phase (approx 7-8years old) is very much in need of a complete interior paint job and some furniture upgrades and repairs to kitchen taps operating sloppily.

If you're looking for a fantastic place to stay with great amenities (pool, exercise room, coffee shop, yoga and mini golf) this is the place for you.
