Great until one of the staff members used a vulgarity on our last day there. Otherwise pretty good.

Beautiful property enjoyed by the whole family. The Fire Escape has a beautiful airy open concept with ocean views from the living room and Master. The elevator was extremely useful as there are many steps to climb. My favorite spot was the rooftop terrace-this condo probably has the very best unobstructed view as there is an empty lot in front facing the ocean.
Pros-well maintained, well stocked kitchen, location,ocean views, fans, elevator
Cons-no beach access, Master bedroom very hot, strong gasoline smell in owner's garage (had to air out other side of garage and garage apartment), couch "Pit" was great for seating but needs cleaning for stains.

Overall a great stay; however, we were not too happy with Silver Sands mgt. When booking this months ago I sent several email inquires to them and never received a response. I finally called and asked about the size of the golf cart as there is no information on that. It is a 4 man cart btw. We needed a larger cart and the woman I spoke with said they could probably get us a better deal at Silver Sands rental since we were renting from SS. She was going to call me back with a price but never did. I called later and was told it was going to cost us $75 a day more to upgrade. Since the price of the golf cart is included in the rental price I thought this was a rip and so much for "thanks for your patronage" from Silver Sands.

We got to Silver Sands at check-in and they said it wasn't ready and would be 30-40 minutes---you're kidding! They were "being slammed" (I heard that many times during the course of my conversations with them) When you pay this much for a rental you expect it to be ready. If it is not, some kind of compensation would be appropriate. Of course none was offered. I got a call from Silver Sands a couple of weeks after our stay asking if we turned in our car passes, which costs about $25 a piece if you fail to turn them in. I assured we had turned in all 5 on ch

We highly recommend the Fire Eacape. Lots of fun and room for everyone. And love how close to the beach and the access to the pools. Overall best place we have ever stayed at Port A.

First we loved the Fire Escape. The house was great and we enjoyed the elevator the few days that it worked being that we had some heavy ice chest and elderly grandparents. It broke halfway through the trip. Silver sands initially handled it well. After a few calls by us. they sent out a maintenance man who tried to fix it. Unfortunately it needed a part so it would not be fixed. I then received a call from a Silver Sands representative offering 10% off for the trouble. I was impressed. Well two weeks down the road I checked my statement and they never processed the 10%. So I called Silver Sands and Denise offered a 5% discount even though they offered 10% off weeks earlier. If I hadn't checked up on it I would have never received any discount. Overall the property was great and this negative review is in no way a reflection of the house. If Silver Sands would have actually done what they said they would this would be a 5 star review.

We were very pleased with Fire Escape. It met all of our needs and exceeded our expectations.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Fire Escape!! Enjoyed the beautiful ocean views! Also, the elevator was very useful. The golf cart was also a fun experience for the kids. We will definitely come back here!!

We used the cabin as a place for sleep and to handle our groom and his groomsmen. It served both purposes well. We slept there and it was a place for the groomsmen to gather to visit and to eat prior to wedding.
We did not have time to have the beach experience, but the cabin would have served that well. We were here for a wedding and not much time for the beach. Thank you.

We had a wonderful stay at the Fire Escape! The staff at Silver Sands were so nice and helpful, and the printed instructions at the house made it easy! The hosue was large, beautiful and clean with a great view of the ocean and sky from both balconies.
The only thing we wished for was direct access to the beach...

Wonderful stay at the Fire Escape in Port A! The view were fantastic from he three decks, especially the rooftop deck! Loved the open floor plan. The accommodations were great. The downstairs private apartment allowed four members of extended family to sleep in comfort. We had a family member with a broken foot, the elevator was especially helpful! The golf cart that came with the house was outstanding and enjoyed by all! Everything was awesome!

my vacation rental was wonderful! the house was in perfect shape & the help center was also wonderful!

Great, spacious property with lots of room for our entire family! Beautifully decorated home well stocked with everything we needed. Great views of the water from the top floor! Easy access to everything we needed in the area, and less than 5 minutes to the beach (no direct beach access). GREATLY enjoyed our stay and already booked to return next year!

We had a great time. It was only three days but we made good use of our time. I was with my daughter and several grand kids and they has a blast. We will remember this short vacation and we will probably do this again.

We decided upon Village Walk because we have friends also renting in the community. We had been to Port A as their guests and decided upon renting for a winter month in 2016. We decided upon The Fire Escape because of it's unobstructed view of the gulf. We knew we wanted one of the 3 stories located at the rear of the community. We were satisfied with the property in general and specifically it's location, so much that we reserved it again for 2017. We learned that the owner had just purchased it and had done some painting and decorating etc. We are sure he is not done with his improvements. I understand he will be changing out the master bed (which sagged terribly due to broken box springs). The only other complaint we had was that the dining table and the handrail on the interior staircase were sticky and gummy, and some of the pans and utensils are beyond their usefulness. We brought this to the property management's attention and I am sure they will be taken care of. We still found that overall, because of the view, this is a terrific property!

The house is adorable - looks just like the photos. But even though it is one row off the beach, you cannot walk to the beach. There is no boardwalk anywhere in this neighborhood! You have to pack everyone up in the car and drive to the public beach access. When I pay top dollar to be close to the beach I expect to be able to walk there.

Best vacation our family has had so far! I don't think the views get much better than this considering the house came with a rooftop deck. The property management was there to help us from beginning to end to make sure our stay was well. The yard was gated and very spacious for our kids to be outside. The Fire Escape didn't come with a private pool but the complex community pool was just a couple houses down. Also, highly recommend renting a golf cart for the beach! Definitely helped getting around.

Overall the house was great. Management told us when we got there elevator was broken and we were like no problem. What they didn't tell us is that from downstairs room you cannot access the upstairs without the elevator unless you go outside. So, we were not able to use the downstairs room at all, which put our small children sleeping on coaches. (For fear that if kids woke up and tried to come up stairs and went outside they would get locked out in middle of night, bc all the doors had a key code and you couldn't get in without it, fyi all children on trip were under age of 6). For the most part the house was stocked but there were only 2 trash bags in the entire house for a 4 day stay and no kitchen towels. Needless to say we had to makendure a trip to the store for paper towels and trash bags. Not a huge deal but when your paying that much per night those items should be included. This would be a great house for singles or families with older children. We also love the rooftop deck! The house has no beach access but it's not a far drive to the beach. Pools at the complex were small, but there were 2 of them.
