Ocean Sands is a real gem. They are spacious individually-owned one and two bedroom condos located right on the beach - any closer and they'd be in the water. Because they are all individually owned, they are all finished and furnished differently, and some have been updated more recently than others. This place obviously caters to longer-term guests - the longer you stay, the lower the nightly rate. In fact, it's cheaper to stay for a month than for two weeks. This is definitely not a luxury resort, but the units are clean, comfortable and well-equipped, and the staff are very helpful. And the ocean view is unbeatable. So if you can do without complimentary bathrobes and mints on your pillow, Ocean Sands is great value for the vacation dollar.

My daughter and I had a wonderful time at Ocean Sands. One day was stormy and perfect for a beach walk and a cozy afternoon reading by the fireplace. The next day was sunny and perfect for a run through the trails at Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park. The unit was clean, well-appointed and had everything we needed, and was oh so quiet....just what the doctor ordered. The staff were very friendly and responsive. Amenities are very close by, including the wonderful Goats on Roof in nearby Coombs. We will be back!

The location is fantastic. Our unit was spacious, clean and well stocked. Managers were helpful and responsive. Our oceanfront suite had a beautiful ocean view. We hope to return with our family one day.

Ocean Sands was a lovely and quiet getaway from the city this fall. Lots of social distancing on Rathtrevor Beach too. The decor was lovely in our suite and very comfortable to chill out and enjoy the beautiful view.
