Friendly, Clean, Prim location, tranquil and just a positive laid back feel about the place! We cant wait to go back with our family and friends to share the experience. Darcy starts your stay off right with his friendly and positive attitude at check in.

This was the 5 th time we have stayed at ocean sands and we stayed for a week this time. It was so relaxing and stress free. We have already planned put trip for next year. Love this place and the great family that runs it do an excellent job of making your stay as care free as possible.

The properly was quite nice, the pool was great tho it could use a nicer fence, the chain link was a little bit like a school instead of a resort Suite was very large and had pretty much everything we needed

My 4 year old grandson & I enjoyed the beautiful beach minutes from our most comfortable home away from home ! Having breakfast on the patio watching the tides, birds, boats & even a little bunny was so much fun. What a great way to start the day! Everything at this resort was top notch, we plan on returning next... More

We booked a two bedroom unit, closest to the beach. Big windows and a private deck looking over a spectacular ocean view. Well equipped unit. Extremely helpful and friendly on-site manager/owners. I'd definitely stay here again.

Loved the ocean views, loved the family friendly atmosphere, loved the comforts of home, but away from home! The owners are great and very hospitable and reasonable. Lots of family and kids running around. We went as a family over the Father's Day weekend and we will definitely book again! It's also close to great parks and lots of things... More

We stayed at Ocean Sands for three nights in mid June. Unit 104 was clean, well equipped and decorated with up to date, stylish décor. The owner/managers were really helpful and accommodating (thanks guys!). The view is spectacular so make sure you bring a camera. We will intend to return next year and will definitely rebook at Ocean Sands

The most relaxing and enjoyable weekend with family. We rented a two bedroom, ocean front condo. The unit was very clean, quiet and very close to the beach. You can hear the waves if you open the sliding door. Kitchen was big enough to cook a full meal for 7 people. Eating area overlooks the most spectacular view of the... More

Great value for accommodation. Darcy was fantastic. Grounds were well kept unit 32 was clean and comfortable. Main floor unit was a little noisy as you could hear upper unit walking around. Main floor unit did not get much sun but did have a wonderful view of pool area and some ocean view.
