Reviewer Comments:

I planned a quick surprise getaway for my husband and myself and this complex was just perfect. The boardwalk allowed us to come and go from the beach as often as we wanted without worrying about vehicle parking. The complex wasn't packed so we did not feel overwhelmed. The website said construction was going on but to be honest I did not even notice it! The Silver Sands office was very forthcoming about the construction, even offered to relocate us. I have never dealt with a rental company that was so willing to do anything they can to make sure we had the best time possible. Silver Sands really does go above and beyond, I mean they are open on Sundays! I cannot wait to rent in Port A again and I really can't wait to see what else Silver Sands has to offer!

Reviewer Comments:

Overall, the condo was great. It was very clean and quiet. I loved having the full size washer and dryer in the unit and the big patio. There was some construction going on at the complex (only from 8-5), but it did not bother us at all. BRING YOUR BUG SPRAY!! While we didn't see all that many mosquitoes in the unit, the parking garage was terrible! We would have to douse ourselves and our kids every time we were getting in and out of the car and then we would have to make a run for it. I am talking hundreds of mosquitoes. The condo was fantastic, though!

Reviewer Comments:

We were warned about construction outside the condo. The construction caused insulation to fill the showers, the guest bathroom to flood and the office area to leak horribly. When I notified Silver Sands they came and cleaned the showers when we first arrived but seemed like they did not care on days 2 and 3 when notified about the flooded bathroom and leaking office/living room area and left if for us to clean up and deal with. On a positive note we drove down to the beach and it was wonderful! The kitchen was stocked with quality supplies to cook your own meals you just have to purchase all of the food ect.

Reviewer Comments:

The condo was wonderful on the inside. It was very clean and well maintained. Overall we had a great trip considering that construction was going on there as well as most of the island. I wish the construction crew had more of a regular schedule. It is hard to swim, cook out or enjoy an amazing deck with heavy machines working on the roof. Some days they worked 9-4, others days 9-7. There was a major water leak in the unit above us that poured through our light fixture. Emergency response was super fast. The walk to the beach is much longer than described but doable. Mosquitos were beyond horrible this year around the condo and beach walk. They were in town too, just not as bad.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a very restful and enjoyable experience at Smiling Jack's Escape. While there was still some recovery construction going on from Hurricane Harvey's impact, we found little interference with our enjoyment. The facilty's amenities were affected but we seldom use the pool or hot tub choosing to spend out time sight seeing and going to the beach. Future guest might need to call to make sure they are not bothered by some inconveniences and that the pool and hot tub are up and running. We loved the fact that there were few other guests due to construction and repair. This condo complex consists of less than forty units and is in deep contrast to the larger populations one finds at other condos in the area. We have stayed at three other condos and have found this one to be most enjoyable. We usually drive to the beach and a drive is required for this unit. A short drive to the walkway and then a walk to the beach or a five miniute drive along Hwy 361 and access road 2. The unit itself was outstanding for our purposes. It is well kept, modern and convenient. All the necessary amenities to keep two grandchildren and three adults happy. I would highly recommend the unit and the complex again if you are tolerant of the recovery effort taking place.

Reviewer Comments:

The unit was great, I wished I had known that they were still in the process of fixing the roofs, handrails and management office. Although the unit was impeccable, spacious and had everything we needed I picked this place because it had a pool so we (girls) could relax while the guys went fishing but the pool was full of debris and not clean. We really enjoyed the closeness to the ocean, easy access, the patio was awesome for meals outdoors. We will definitely be back once they finish the reconstruction. Management company was great expect that they gave us the wrong access code, we had to call the emergency number to get in.
