Looking through all these other properties you will notice that most are on the fifth or ninth floor of a mega resort. Do you really want to come in off the beach with all your gear only to get on an elevator to your unit as someone else is leaving in dress clothes to go out. Walk a few steps from beach chair to sofa in this unique small resort setting without fighting the crowds at the pool or on the beach.
You've found it - home! This is the ONLY listing for this resort you will find of the thousands you will have searched through. Our resort will make you feel like you live here being directly on the beach in the heart of New Smyrna Beach. Ocean Sands Beachclub is unsurpassed in every way including our:
'Sleep Number' beds.....as seen on TV
Wireless Internet connection
Handicap accessible ground floor units promote easy access with every step from luggage to beach chairs into this private entrance walk-in condominium. Constructed legally as close as possible to the ocean, you can see the kids on the beach while sitting on your bed, sofa, or porch. See the floor plan of the unit below.
Since this beach is a nesting ground for Seaturtles, it is a protected area which limits traffic and there is not a light anywhere near the beach. This makes for a nature filled DARK secluded beach with a ceiling of bright stars you would only find on a deserted island. Here you will walk into this star filled moonlit postcard scene at your doorstep.
Without any large resorts nearby the beachfront is empty and quiet. Walk south on the beach 250 feet to find Chases beachside Tiki bar and restaurant. Walk across the street for Manny's Pizza which appeals to all ages. See my detailed GOOGLE map below with sites near-by, also see how close to the ocean our buildings sit compared to our neighbors. Other resident beachgoers south of you live out of the way and must drive by the resort to exit, almost 5 miles when they want to travel out.
Location: Ocean Sands Beach Club Resort is located at 3208 Hill Street New smyrna Beach, Florida 32169 (an actual sand road) at the intersection of 22nd Street. Conveniently located one mile from the only bridges which access the mainland routes.
The city itself is the best-kept secret for beach lovers with emphasis being on maintaining a beachside community and not the almighty tourist dollar. There really isn't any traffic here since it's not a tourist-laden city, and even has laws to prohibit any further commercialization efforts. The ruckus at Daytona Beach is a few minutes away and not at your doorstep. Our city is more for families, retirees, or anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing atmosphere.
See all the sites on my map above, everything is near-by. Click the satellite zoom tab (bottom right in the map)to see how OSBC almost appears to sit in the ocean. Look north and south......see how my neighbors are built back 100 feet from us! We are the closest property to the ocean you will find.
David Kirkland purchased this condo in 1989
Rare to find a small oceanfront resort like OSBC offering the old florida charm being lost to developers. Remember as a child the road trips to this wonderland called Florida? The roadside attractions, palm trees and the quaint motel with the pink flamingos out front seemed endless. Most are gone, even the palm trees were moved to make room for destructive monster beachfront development buring memories and the charm we knew.
Anyone can relive that lost experience here (except the flamingos)and get away from the crowd.
The resort is located in a residential neighborhood. There are 5 house north and south which are rarely occupied. This beachfront is less traveled and with the dark beach at night (Sea Turtle laws require the no lights shine at the beach), makes for a star lit night with a beautiful moon on display.
To all my past guest, thank you for visiting this site again and taking the time to post your comments
Our family holiday experience at Dave's condo was fantastic. The unit was clean and very well-equipped with a welcome package and helpful visitor information. We appreciated Dave's communication from the moment we booked, and when we forgot our jackets, he went out of his way to make arrangements for another couple to bring them our way. This is a gem of a spot in New Smyrna Beach as it is extremely quiet and away from all the busy and crazy but close enough to Disney and attractions. Oceansands is a beautifully kept older resort situated on a gorgeous beach where you might be fortunate enough to see dolphins playing in the surf as you walk. A huge thank you to Dave for his kindness and a great vacation in his lovely condo. We would definitely book here again.
We stayed in this unit the last week of March and we had a great time. The weather was beautiful, the pool was warm and clean, the complex was easy to find and small enough that it has a family feel to it yet you aren’t bothered by anyone. The unit is exactly as described by David and very clean. He was very thorough in letting us know what to expect upon our arrival and sent a complete packet upon booking which allowed us to plan ahead for restaurants and things to do in the area. The check-in was simple as David handled everything ahead of time so they were waiting for us. Check-in and check-out were very quick. The grounds are kept up very nicely and the pool was clean and warm even though we were there in early spring. The trash area was clean, housekeeping and maintenance were readily available. The towel exchange twice a week was a nice bonus too. Access to the beach is convenient and the turtles in the empty lot next door were a nice surprise. We fed them nearly an entire head of lettuce that week. Being on the upper floor gave a nice view of the ocean that was relaxing. There was plenty of room to keep our sand toys outside yet still have room to sit and enjoy the outdoors with room to spare. The inside of the unit is small but exactly what you’d expect at the beach. The kitchen is well stocked and had plenty of space in the cupboards for the items we brought so the counter space was still usable, which hasn’t been our experience at other places. There are 3 televisions but we only used one. The master bath shower is huge so even the kids used it. We had not been to a beach which allows driving on the beach but it wasn’t even an issue. There was still plenty of room to build sandcastles and relax while still feeling completely safe. The food truck on the beach has decent food if you don’t fell like running inside for lunch. Definitely a great value to be right on the beach and we would stay here again and recommend it to anyone.
We found a restaurant, McKenna’s Place, which was a very short drive from the unit. It’s like a family friendly sports bar that serves many locals but has fantastic food. They allow call ahead seating and it’s worth it if you go later at night or on weekends and they offer a small outdoor seating area as well. They have a very large menu with most prices in the $7- $10 range with a few dinners up to $16 for seafood.
We loved the rental. Great ocean view from the deck!. It was immaculate, clean, clean, clean. The entire property is beautifully kept up. The master bed was very comfortable. There was lots of room to spread out. Very quiet at night. The kitchen was completely stocked with everything you'd need to prepare meals.
We ate out most nights, lots of nice restaurants just minutes away. Off the Hook is great, raw oysters were delicious. Loved So Nappa Grill, you can walk there, great wines and lovely dinners. 10 minute drive to AA Garden Fusion, very good Thai food.
The check in and check out process was smooth. Towel transfers available twice a week, nice to have lots of towels. Pool and hot tub were great. Beach just lovely.
Drive to the end of the island for a world class beach and reserve at Canavarel National Seashore. Only a few minutes drive away. Wonderful!
Wished there were screens on the windows so we could open the windows and hear the ocean. But A/C unit was quiet and maintained a perfect temperature for the unit.
The place is social if you want it. Our neighbors were lovely. There were a few folks who where a little noisy in the pool during the day but that is to be expected, it takes all kinds:)
It is very well lighted at night, great for safety but not so great for star viewing.
Overall a very nice experience. We would rent again.
David was a pleasure to deal with. He even called when we got there to make sure everything was all set. Much appreciated! We thought it was a great deal for the money. Don't hesitate.
It was great for our family!!! Working with David was very easy and he was always available to answer any questions we had. The view was great and the unit was clean. The packet of information regarding the resort and surrounding attractions was very useful. The onsite staff was very helpful and friendly. We book for next year prior to leaving!!!
This condo was all we hoped for and more! The view from inside and from the balcony was spectacular. The location was phenomenal--only steps to the wonderful pool and beautiful beach. And, the condo itself was well-appointed, clean, and large enough to handle 4 adults and 2 children. David was so accommodating throughout our reservation and stay; he was a pleasure to work with. Thank you for a wonderful week!
It was awesome! The view from the unit was beautiful! It's right down the street from Chases which has a great grouper Reuben! It's a lot of bang for the price. David was very good to work with and helped up try to find a place to stay a couple more nights. We also saved $200 going through this site!
The city is truly in the middle of it all with Daytona Beach 30 minutes north with all its whirlwind of activities (fortunately not at your front door), Orlando with all its theme parks and activities in itself can take a week to explore is only 1 hour away, To the south 1 hour is Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral for deep sea fishing, cruise ships, and NASA tours and launches, Locally sea turtles hatch until September and dolphins play in the surf, Cook fresh seafood on your BBQ grill, or my favorite - open my bedroom window at night to hear only the roar of the surf - you are that close to the ocean!
