We visited off season, so it was nice and we enjoyed the peace and quiet. The ocean views were great and we made a commitment to come back in the summer to enjoy the beach area and pool. The staff were extremely friendly.

Which floor 1 bedroom condos located? Can we choose which floor we want to be( lower or upper floor)?
You should be able to depending on availability. We were on the main floor in a 2 bed facing the pool. No one was above us so we heard nothing.

Is it possible to do clamming on the beach outside the resort?
We saw many live clams partially protruding from the sand.

Are there grocery & food stores nearby, as we have no car. Choosing not to drive on the wrong side of the road! Is there a shuttle from the Nanaimo ferry? Bus?
no grocery stores within walking distance. No shuttle that we know of. Ocean sands is approx 20 min drive from ferry terminal. As ex Brits, we had no difficulty with the driving on the other side of the road. you might want to check on Google for Greyhound buses but really, you will miss a lot by not being able to drive around hope this helps.

Do you give weekly rates, my family ( of 3) would like to stay for 2 weeks in July 2016. Thanks! :)
Yes, there is a discount for booking weekly. Our weekly rates depend on the condo type you are looking for ie 1 or 2 Bedroom Oceanfront Condos or 2 Bedroom Poolside Condos.

Is there a barbecue?
Yes, there are bar-b-ques. Just check there is one at the suite you are renting. I think most, if not all, of the suites have them. You will have a fabulous time there, we have just booked for a month for next year we enjoy it so much, so relaxing and glorious scenery and great hosts. Enjoy!
