Perfect for a romantic getaway with your love or a playful time with the kids. Watch dolphins frolic in the ocean from the gazebo, stroll the warm sandy beach hand-in-hand while picking up shells, build sandcastles, bury each other in the sand... swim in the pools, walk the pier, fish, head to the nearby parks and historical locations! So much to do... or not! :)

The summers of my childhood were spent here, which is why I know that it's the perfect place to 'grow' and make yearly traditions! You will love it ~ Guaranteed!
Why Frances chose Atlantic Beach
It is beachfront and near everything! You can roll out of bed and walk to the ocean in a few steps. You can relax and do nothing or stay busy and play! Either way, you will leave feeling refreshed and looking forward to the next time! We have people who book a year ahead and we're putting it on VRBO so we can share this with other families who need an affordable, yet nice, place to go. Everyone here is very friendly and you will absolutely love the location! Also, you will not have to worry about strangers from other resorts walking through or parking, as it's a private place! The beach will never be crowded... YOU WILL LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT AND HAVE A GREAT TIME!! I'm 110% sure!
What makes this Condo unique
This is a second floor condo that offers great views and sounds of the ocean! You can literally roll out of bed, walk down the steps and go directly to the sand in only a few steps.

Great condo at Ocean Sands!
I really enjoyed my stay at your condo at Ocean Sands. It had everything I would need being away from home and not once during our stay did anything go wrong. It was clean and just right for my husband and I as we were on our honeymoon. The location and price was the best! I would recommend this condo to any of my friends and family. The owner is excellent in responding as I left my laptop there. I was frantic but Frances stepped up to the plate and text to let me know she will be going down there and she would retrieve the laptop and get it to me. I can't tell you how happy and pleased that the owner would go out of her way to ensure I was taken care of. Thank you so much for a wonderful place to stay and for being a wonderful owner. We had the Ocean view and a very short walk to the beach and the pool was clean and everything was awesome! I will be back!
Great location just footsteps away from the beach
My husband, two toddlers, and myself stayed in the room for 7 nights in July.
- Location was the best! Ocean Sands pretty much has a private access and it keeps the beach area uncrowded. We never had an issue finding a spot to enjoy the beach. We were also 5 minutes away from the aquarium and a few minutes away from restaurants/surf shops/ etc...
- The condo was clean.
- Some of the owners were nice and my husband was able to have a few drinks with them with great conversation. The majority of the people we encountered were very sweet.
- The pool was uncrowded and clean.
- The condo had all utensils and dinnerware we needed.
- Frances had great communication and was always available to answer my questions and give suggestions.
- The full size bed was comfortable.
- Everything was running fine and worked efficiently (i.e. fridge, a/c, water heater, stove...)
- The room is smaller than a hotel room. It is a quaint little area perfect for a couple, but with our two toddlers, it made for little room to move.
- The pull out sofa was the most uncomfortable mattress I have ever slept on. It was really thin and you could feel every spring in the mattress.
- Some of the owners at the condo HATE renters...One had stated that word-for-word. Some of them were very condescending and treated us like children. For example, my husband was grilling out when an owner approached him. They were just conversing when my husband mentioned how there were so many seagulls flying around. The owner then shouted at him, "Have you been feeding them? Do NOT feed them!"
- No WiFi, which would be okay in most cases but because I didn't have any service in the room, I was unable to get some work done. (I have Sprint service).
- A bit outdated but that isn't really a con for us because we still had everything we needed, and everything worked fine.
Altogether, we had an amazing and unforgettable vacation. This condo is located right between Morehead City and Pine Knoll Shores/ Emerald Isle. If you want quietness and privacy on the beach, this condo is in the perfect spot. It is facing oceanside, but you can see and hear the ocean if you walk out on the porch. There is also a charcoal grill right in front of the pool that we had used several times. It was also extremely convenient to have a spot to rinse all the sand off when coming off of the beach before heading back to the room. I would definitely recommend this property, especially for couples.
Thank you so much for the thorough review!! Glad you had a great time and we really hope you'll stay there again! Thanks for the review on the couch bed. I've never given that much thought, but will look into a pad or another mattress. We will be adding Wi-Fi in the near future as well, especially prior to the next busy season. Hope your summer continues to be good!
Get what you pay for.
We had a great time at The beach. The condo is a good price, but you get what you pay for. Updating is definitely needed along with a new door and screen door that closes properly. We would stay here again -- especially if new updates were made.
Thank you for your review. We are hoping all the doors will get updated very soon and we have plans for more improvements during the off-season. Have a great rest of the summer!
Great Vacation Rental!
My family and I stayed here for a week and it was amazing. It is steps away from the ocean and pool. We loved how quiet and peaceful it was there. We will definitely be coming back next year. We truly did not even want to leave to come back home.
Thank you so much for the review!! We definitely hope you'll come back! :)
Birthday at the Beach!
Had a great time at the Ocean Sands with my family! Studio was convenient to everything..beach, pool, restaurants, and shopping...made some awesome memories..many thanks!
You've always been an amazing renter and we hope you'll come back soon! :)
So much to do and so many things to see. You can choose to nap, tan, read, float and relax all day or you can be active and go-go-go! Either way, you'll be happy!
