The condo is suitable for families, couples and groups of friends. From the private balcony there is a wonderful, wide view of the coast, from Treasure Island up to the end of Sand Key.

We stayed in Ocean Sands for 10 nights after a hectic week in Orlando. It is approximately one hour forty from Orlando depending on traffic. The condo itself is perfectly located right on the beach. Erica, the owner, has provided everything you would ever need in there from deckchairs and beach towels to cable TV and a fully equipped kitchen....
