We stayed in Kemp Cottage over the holidays, and we felt right at home. We loved seeing the property decorated with wreaths and ornaments on the trees. This is our second time staying at The Silver Sands and we cannot wait to go back. The staff is amazing! The quick walk to the beach is through an enchanted walkway where we encountered several tortoises. EVERY amenity was at our fingertips. The feel of The Silver Sands is right out of the past. It is quiet, private and overall, a truly wonderful place to stay. We highly recommend staying here.

We recently stayed in the Hawksbill Suite for 4 nights. We loved it! The suite was exceptionally clean. We loved the proximity to the beach, and the walk was enjoyable. We saw a turtle on our walk a few times. The beach was very quiet, which was exactly what we wanted! I hope we will be able to get back to this area again because we loved our stay here!

I almost hate leaving a review to keep the place all to ourselves! Our young family of 4 enjoyed our stay at this quiet private authentic hotel. As long as it’s still there we plan to stay annually. Everything was wonderful. The beach is just a short walk away which is where we spent most of our time. The grounds and rooms are well kept with surveillance. Enjoyed our privacy and felt safe. Can’t wait to come back! Thank you

We have stayed here twice and it is an amazing place. It had everything we needed from coffee to beach chairs. We also love seeing the turtles and ravens who come up to the office to eat. It is a beautiful walk to the beach on a short path. I always look to book here first when I come in to town, but it is always booked so plan ahead :)

My husband and I stayed 2 nights in the Monarch Suite. We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and the close proximity to the beach. The Silver Sands is in a residential area so this made for a very exclusive beach area.

Great location right on the beach. The apartment is away from the big hotels so the beach was quiet and we barely saw another person, however we did travel slightly off season. The apartment was well equipped. Umbrellas, chairs and bucket and spades were available for the beach.

Loved everything about the place. The owners are really playing attention to making this a sublime experience for vacationers. The ocean within walking distance really helps too! Plan on going back as often as we can.

I love this place for its location, the fact that they left the dunes and vegetation in place, the attention to detail both inside the cottages/rooms and out, the colors (blue and white), the happy staff, the friendly guests.
