Great location! Perfect for family of 4!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this condo at Ocean Sands! Plenty of space for 2 adults and 2 kids. Loved all the sofas - no one was cramped and had room to spread out. Kitchen was updated with granite countertops and fully stocked. The unit was clean. The complex was very nice. Not crowded at all. Loved the pool, and the beach was awesome! No fighting for a spot for your tent, or not being able to watch your kids because of the crowd. The restaurants and shops seemed to close early, so if you're eating or going out late, you may have to drive to Clearwater, which had great night life. Kids loved John's Pass. The only suggestion I can think of is to update the bathroom at some point, and get new towels as washcloths. They were kind of mismatched and needed replacing. Thank you for a great place to stay! I'm sure we will be back!

amazing ocean front stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a wonderful week of sun and fun. This condo was so close to the beach we felt the ocean breeze from the outside patio where we read our paper and drank tea every morning. Very quiet and low key condo community, great pool, excellent access to all local amenities. Bruce was wonderful and very helpful when needed.We had an blast and can't wait to come back. You can't go wrong with this place, I promise :-)

Outstanding Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ocean Sands. The weather was

unusually warm and the sunsets were beautiful. The condo was very

nice and was well furnished. The ocean view was wonderful and the

swimming pool felt great on a hot day and offered us an opportunity

to interact with our many friends. Two nice televisions enabled me to

watch sports while my wife watched traditional shows while the

washer & dryer were running. The pushbutton entrance was wonderful

and we did not need to worry about losing our key at the pool or

locking our key in the condo. Grocery & drug stores as well as shopping

outlets are nearby. I went golfing several times with friends who

were staying at Ocean Sands. My wife located a beauty shop which

did a nice job on her hair. I found a barbershop which cut hair,shampooed

and gave a massage. We are looking forward to returning next year.

We'll Be Back!

  • 5 of 5

For the second year, Ocean Sands 404 has been our holiday 'home away from home'. And we are looking forward to returning again next year. Why?

The Gulf view is amazing from everywhere in the unit. The deck has plenty of room to eat meals or lounge and comfortable chairs to enjoy the sun and the breeze. The beds are 'just right' - not too hard and not too soft. Lots of creature comforts are available: all the kitchen equipment you need, beach gear, furniture with plenty of storage space so you can stow your belongings, great adjustable shower head to wash off the salt. Keyless entries to the lobby and unit, so you don't have to keep track of keys. The pool and and hot tub were not crowded and the locals we ran into there and around the property were very friendly.

The beach! Long, flat, and usually very level for easy walking and shell collecting. Dolphins and birds provide lots of entertainment. It's not crowded with people, but everyone you meet is relaxed and happy.

One great thing about this location is the location! So close to anything you need! Good pubs and restaurants, drugstore, groceries, and Johns Pass a beach walk away for great people watching and browsing. The trolley outside the door can take you north or south to explore without having to drive.

Finally, the owners of this condo have been very accommodating in answering questions and providing everything we needed to have a wonderful experience. We will be back for year three!
