We enjoyed our stay at Silver Sands in July 2009 while traveling with six other families with children. We each had our own condo unit that slept 4. The units are a bit small and some of the furnishing are dated, but it was a clean, quiet and well-managed property with an onsite office open during weekdays to get fresh towels and beach gear. The best part about Silver Sands really is the location and small size. Not only is it directly on a beautiful and well-appointed private beach, there is also a sandbar not too far out from the water's edge where one can dive and collect full-buckets of sand dollars. Our kids dove and collected several containers full to bring home, which was fun for all. The pool, community patio and grilling area and outdoor showers were also nice features that we enjoyed. The patios on each unit were of ample size and had both furniture for sitting, but also racks for drying beachwear and towels - an essential if you are spending much of your day in the water!
