The epitome of Florida vacationing White Sands makes it affordable to stay on the beach. Full kitchens in all of the 14 units, plus a picnic and grilling area mean saving money on eating out. They range from an efficiency studio with a queen bed and sofa bed to one- and two-bedroom apartments that sleep up to six. The units overlook the beach, pool, or both. They are clean and comfortable, if not ultra-modern, and configure in a motel-like row and on the second floor above the office. All have shared porch or balcony space.

We stayed for a week (July/August 2019). By far one of the BEST family vacation spots we've been to. White Sands Beach Resort is a very well maintained old school beach motel. The rooms are large (we had a 2 bedroom for 2 adults and 3 kids and had plenty of room). They have a small kitchen that comes with all the essentials (even a blender for beach drinks). The rooms were very clean and well maintained. The A/C can be ice cold if you like it cold at night (like I do).
The pool area is big enough for the limited number of rooms and kids could play freely. The pool is clean and they have shuffleboard and a bags game (cornhole) set up. The beach is only a short walk from all the rooms (but 1 and 2 are right on the beach).
The stretch of Holmes Beach the White Sands Beach is on is pristine white sugar sand with lots of shells (and sharks teeth!) For the kids to find. The water was clear and warm and not very wavy (perfect for kids and adults).
In summary, this place is a treasure of all the good things about old school Florida. We left out phones in the room (even our teenage daughter) and had FUN!
