Ocean Lakes is one of the largest family resorts in the country. A gated community with 24 hour security ensures your family a relaxing vacation. We own three ocean view homes in Ocean Lakes (please see our other listing: VRBO 971431 which has beautiful ocean views and sleeps up to 16) and VRBO 1213352 Lakefront and Ocean view sleeps 12 . Our ocean front home, #906 is 99 steps to the beach! This family friendly furnished home sleeps UP to 10 (with kids).
Our lower deck has surround seating with full ocean view, a bar, gas grill, outdoor shower, LED rope lighting and a porch swing. You will also find a beach set-up of chairs, toys, umbrellas and cooler. A playground is in full view from every deck of the house for your children to enjoy. There is plenty of room for golf cart parking and two cars.
Our main (house on stilts) floor has a wrap around deck with full ocean view. Relax or eat on deck on our comfortable beach furniture. There are three sets of sliding glass doors with full ocean views that exit onto the deck. Our living room has a couch (the most comfortable you will ever sit upon), a love seat, flat screen SMART TV, Play Station 2 and a dvd player. The dining room flows from the living room into the kitchen. The dining table seats 6 comfortably (more can fit) with a surround view of the ocean. The kitchen is completely furnished with dishes, utensils, pots and pans, coffee maker, microwave, toaster and dishwasher. Off the kitchen is a breakfast nook that seats four. The hallway off the living room has a closet with cleaning supplies and games. There is a brand new washer and dryer. A full bath (with full tub for baby baths) is in the main hallway along with a bedroom with a queen size bed, full closet, flat screen tv and half bath. All rooms have ceiling fans and furniture.
Upstairs you will find the master bedroom with a king size bed, walk in closet, furniture, chair, full ocean view, 1/2 bath and a bonus small bedroom with a full sized futon. This area is great for a port-a-crib or small children. Our kids refer to it as the Harry Potter bedroom.
Next to the master suite is a small room with two twin beds. Our kids LOVE this room. At each end of the small room is a walk in closet that kids use as a fort or to make a sleep area. Across from this room is a full bath with a large shower with small seat. At the end of the hallway is another bedroom with a queen bed, closet and flat screen tv.
Your typical day may include watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee off your private deck with surround views of the ocean. If you don’t feel like cooking breakfast, you can drive your golf cart over to Sandy’s Snack Bar where you will find a pretty good southern breakfast for 6 people under $20. Ocean Lakes Family Resort offers mini golf (nominal fee), skate park (free), NEW slide water park (free to use), and 5 swimming pools (one indoors). The beach is free to use and has lifeguards (seasonal). The average water temperature in summer is 85 degrees.
There are nightly activities at the rec center. Check the calendar for scheduled events. One of the most unique activities that our family LOVES is the nightly golf cart parade. Guests decorate their golf carts and slowly drive up and down the main strip by the beach. Each cart you pass the kids do a “high five” with the passing cart. Although a difficult event to describe, once your family does it, you too, will be hooked.
Our family has coming been vacationing here for 10 years in our RV. We love it so much, we purchased four rental beach homes so your family can experience this hidden gem of a family resort, too.
Your Saturday to Saturday rental in our home will include all the amenities of Ocean Lakes. Our home is a clean, comfortable and secure environment. We supply free wireless internet. We also offer our personal golf cart for rent at $300.00 per week (seasonal) (must be over 16 with a license to drive). . Ocean Lakes also rents golf carts at $408 per week (seasonal).
Please note: This is our family home. We prefer to only rent to other families as this is what our home is set up for. We do not rent to anyone under 25 years old or large, non-family member groups.
We encourage you to return the same week year after year and we will hold your week up to 13 months in advance.
With warmest regards,
Steve & Jen Heicklen
