Concierge Services:

We will do our best to help you out at the front desk, but there is no professional concierge service provided.


Propane BBQ's:

Flame BBQ's are not allowed on the patios or balconies.  Some ground floor condos have propane BBQ's, which must be used on the BBQ pad.  Currently the resort does not supply BBQ's to guests other than those specific ground floor condos.  Some second or third floor condos have electric BBQ's on the balconies. If you bring a portable BBQ, there is a picnic area by the beach where it can be used.



Each condo advertises the number of people it sleeps.  The rental rates advertised are based on the number of people it sleeps.  For example: if a condo sleeps 6 people, you can have up to six people in the condo with no additional fees.  Children under the age of 2 years old do not count toward the occupancy.  Under some circumstances, you may be able to exceed the advertised occupancy, but a charge of $10 per person per night will apply.


There is no daily housekeeping services included at the posted rates. Towels can be exchanged at the office for fresh towels on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Additional consumables can also be picked up at the office.  Daily housekeeping can be arranged for $25.00/day. If daily housekeeping is required, please arrange when making your reservation.


Ocean Sands Resort supplies complimentary coffee, tea, sugar, coffee mate, paper towel, dish soap, dishwasher soap, toilet paper, hand soap as well as Lavish shampoo, conditioner and bar soap.


Ocean Sands Resort is a family oriented resort, especially during the summer months.  It is strongly recommended that any guests that are noise sensitive rent a top floor unit.


As part of our environmental initiative, Ocean Sands Resort shuts off the pilot on all fireplaces throughout the summer months; therefore fireplaces are not operational through the summer months.

Studio Condos:

The studio condos do not have any kitchen facilities or sanitary location to wash dishes and therefore these units do not contain any dishes or cutlery, other than disposable coffee cups.  Wine glasses can be provided by the office and exchanged for clean glasses daily at the office. Disposable dishes and cutlery can also be provided by the office upon request.
