Ocean Sands is a fabulous place to stay. Incredible ocean views, clean, beautifully appointed units and warm, friendly hosts who go more than the extra mile to make you feel welcome. It is a place we love to go back to again and again. We walk on the endless beach and through the adjacent Provincial Park watching the eagles, geese,... More

We only stayed one (short) night at this place, but the reception was super warm and very friendly. The unit was extremely clean, well stocked, and the view was great. We enjoyed our stay (with three kids) and there was plenty of room for all of us.

We stayed in a studio suite over the Christmas vacation time and had brought some wine and appetizers. While the suite did not have any dishes or cutlery, the managers provided us with all we needed. We found the room warm with the fireplace on. The view from the suite was spectacular and access to the beach was very convenient.... More

Our end-of-year getaway was made very comfortable both by the natural surroundings, including a wonderful panoramic beach view, and by the spacious and well-equipped condo. The couple either managing or owning the complex were really nice also. We will definitely be back!

Clean, peaceful, and welcoming; our vacation retreat could not have been better. The icing on our cake? Watching Eagles and crows perform air show acrobatics from the balcony, with surf and sea lions serenading us at night.

Stayed in a ground floor studio (309A) last night, and we were very pleased. Maybe not the most stylish suite in the world, but immaculate and comfortable, and kept cozy and warm by a large gas fireplace. Best of all, the sliding doors opened onto a private patio just steps above the wide beach--great views from the room, too. Microwave,... More

Our nicely appointed two bedroom suite had everything we wanted including a fireplace in the living room, TV, full kitchen and balcony. The perfect location on a fantastic stretch of beach had gorgeous views, making for a very memorable occasion. Will definitely return the next time we are in the area.

We stayed at the Ocean Sands Resort for three nights. We had a lovely studio and found it lovely and cosy as there was a lovely comfortable king side bed, gas fire, and jacuzzi tub all in the studio. Plenty of towels. As the weather was not too good our room with a wonderful view made the short vacation enjoyable... More

We stayed at the Ocean Sands Resort for five nights in October in unit 113, and I must say, the view from the deck is spectacular! The resort management were very friendly and helpful. They weren't sure if our unit had a hair blower and iron, so they had these ready when we checked in. They suggested Otake Korean Barbeque... More
