It is perfect for families. The suite was fully stocked and they loved all the soccer/sports equipment just left out to play with. The beach was a quick 5 min walk away and the outdoor pool had life jackets for the kids.
Ocean Sands Resort is an older property, as I remember staying here as a child in the 90s. The rooms have been renovated though, and the resort is well located for beach access. The units at Ocean Sands are individual condos, and you book a specific unit. Pro tip: The 100-units are the top floor, and the 200-units are the second floor, and the 300-units are the ground level floor. We had a beautiful two-bedroom unit (216) facing the water, and it was bright and spacious. The kitchen was well-equipped for all our cooking and we loved spending time watching the tides coming in and out. Some of the fixtures and appliances were out of date, but everything was functional. The beach access from the units is quick, but is a steep path that is not fully accessible for people with limited mobility. We did hear the floor creaking with footsteps of the unit above us, but we had quiet neighbours so it didn't impact the enjoyment of our vacation at all. We got a wonderful rate to stay here, and my only regret is that we didn't book a longer stay. Highly recommended.…
Very nice place to stay on the ocean in Parksville. We had a 2 bedroom townhouse with a a full kitchen and deck that looked out towards ocean. There is also a outdoor pool and indoor hot tub. Beds are very comfortable as well. We go back every year!
Wonderful resort, wonderful managers. Pool and sauna were great, grounds and flowers were in great shape. Our unit was very nice and clean, with new barbecue. We stayed for a month, wish the weather was a little warmer. Great walking paths nearby and right on rath Trevor beach.
We have stayed many times at Ocean Sands, in fact, it is our "go to" place when we are staying in the Parksville/Qualicum area. The suites are always impeccably clean and completely outfitted with everything you could need. Darcy is always friendly and upbeat and willing to accommodate.
Ocean Sands was comfortable and welcoming. We had a beautiful view of the water and the beach was a short walk down from our suite. Lovely balcony and lots of big, clean windows made it nice and bright. Everything we needed was there, even a Tim Horton’s teapot.
Ocean Sands was a lovely place to stay. Our 2 bedroom unit #216 smelled slightly of mildew. Always an issue with waterfront. The unit was super and very well cared for. If there was room for improvement I would upgrade the lighting in the bathroom.
Ocean sands was a great place to stay. Darcy is so wonderful particularly after two lost toys he went above and beyond and found them. It is in a great location and we will 100% be back. Already planning our next stay!
My wife and I have been staying at the Ocean Sands resort for a number of years now. We stayed both short term ( 1 month duration) and long term (7 months). We already have reservations for the following year. The resort is quiet, in a good neighborhood, close to the ocean and beach, close to all the amenities that Parksville has to offer etc. The staff and management are excellent and very accomadating. I highly recommend Ocean Sands to anyone thinking of a stay in the Parksville area.
This resort was an awesome find. Starting with a welcoming reception from managers Darcy and Chrissy who responded to our every need ( which were few) , we enjoyed the comfort our suite which was nicely appointed and well stocked. The reasonable rental rate was beyond belief! Close to so many attractions and services . Already looking forward to our return stay next year.
