“You won't be disappointed”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

We traveled here the week of Memorial Day, 2014. The resort is small and set in the middle of a mostly residential area. About a 4 minute walk to the Gulf of Mexico beach and within walking distance to CVS, 5th Ave and 3rd Ave. Awesome location. We got unit #10 which I think is the only 2 bed unit. Both rooms have bathrooms and are very nice! The common area is quite small and only seats 4 adults unless someone wants to sit at the dining room table. Ed seemed great, we joined him for breakfast. The pool was small, but I didn't swim anyway. There are things to do at the resort and the booklet Ed supplied in our rooms about the area is super helpful. The only thing I didn't like is that the lights from the walkways kept our bedroom pretty bright at night, but I know they are required to be on. Just bring your eye mask. The kitchen had everyting we could have possibly needed and the bedrooms and baths were suffiently equipped with everything we needed as well. I would definitely stay here again. I've never stayed at such a small private resort and I much prefer that to hotels!

Room Tip: I'm pretty sure every room faces into the couryard.

Resort had most things we required for a young family and was extremely quiet. Accommodation was ok but a bit dated (furnishings and contents) staff were lovely and were always willing to provide any requests.

A perfect spot. 2 blocks from the beach. 2 blocks from old naples. Very comfortable spot. We loved white sands. Everyone was so friendly. If you like to socialize with other guest this is a great place for you. Ed the manager is great. He did an outstanding job running the resort. I would strongly recommend this resort.

We can't wait to go back! It's a really nice clean place with very nice staff. The other folks staying there have been going for years & they are a friendly bunch. The weekly rate was better than anywhere else in Naples & we will be going back as soon as we can.

We know this resort for over 20 years, but only from the outside! Now we checked in, what a gem, the 2 bathroom, one bedroom suite with a kitchen, everything super clean, everthing is working, Mr.Ludwig is a real professional innkeeper, you feel the heart and soul, constantly working for the guest, so Ed, to make your stay just wonderful! Many thanks , I think this is one of the last oasis , the true florida.

We love Naples and finding this peaceful small complex was the icing on the cake! We were made welcome by Ed and Dave and the other holidaymakers, many of whom have been returning for many years. The apartment, pool and garden were ideal and very well presented, the library was well filled and the informal welcoming breakfast and a BBQ lunch in the garden were fun. The use of bicycles and the loan of chairs to take to the beach - which was within easy walking distance - was a nice gesture. 5th Avenue is also within walking distance, although we had a car to venture further afield to the surrounding areas and to Wynns, a Waitrose calibre family owned store full of delightful food. We had spent the previous two weeks in an up-market hotel on the East Coast but rather wished we had come to White Sands for the whole time and hopefully will return.

Thank you Ed and Dave for a splendidly run establishment - don't ever change it!!!

Room Tip: This is a peaceful, residential area and all the rooms seem well situated. We had a studio room, wi...

White Sands Resort has Everything --lovely apartments, garden, pool, bikes, and the location is the best place to be ! Near to beach and walk to 5th Avenue. We love this place and can't wait to go back and stay longer. Ed is the best and friendliest Manager and they host a welcome breakfast and there are grills and outside seating on patio or in garden. So clean and comfortable. Really enjoyed our stay.
